I have scrounged around a bit in the archives but don't see any hits on
this but I am sure there must be a solution.  I have moved two machines
to FC2, one (an IBM PC300PL) was an upgrade from FC1 and the other (an
old Aptiva) I formatted the disk and did a clean install.  I have
similar problems on both in that the file explorer tool (is that
Nautilus?) is acting like an old Window 95 tool such that it lacks the
tree on the left of the window and opens a new window with each
directory you open.  I don't see any setting in it to change this and
make the operation like it was in FC1.  What am I overlooking?

My second questions is why does sound no longer seem to work.  On both
machines now (where sound was working in FC1 with no help just fine) the
soundcard detection tool reports none found.

Any thoughts on either of these anomalies?  If I didn't know better I
would have thought that FC2 was previous version of FC1...

For nautilus search the archives and or google for spatial nautilus
you will find lots about it including how to turn it off, there might
be some info on fedorafaq.org about it too.

For the sound is it definatly that the cards are not found? Or that
the sound doesnt play? Could you post the output from lspci?


Thanks Pybe,

I found an article at http://www.bytebot.net/geekdocs/spatial-nautilus.html that explained the nautilus bit and (more importantly to me :-) gives the tweak to put it back.

With the sound I only had a chance to do the lspci thing on the one machine. I'll try and do the other one next week when I am back in the office.

For the PC300PL lspci reports:
[hockings omxnnu hockings]$ /sbin/lspci

The sound is built into the motherboard but I don't know what it is on this one, on the other machine, an Aptiva, it is Crystal Audio sound.

In any case it's not a big deal but just disapointing that the sound doesn't work.
