yum and dictionary questions


F8 continues to confound me.  Up till a reboot for unrelated reasons day 
before yesterday, I had dictionary showing on the kicker panel just to the 
left of the pager, showing only its entry text box.  But somewhere that 
disappeared.  I have added kdict back to the panel, but only as an icon with 
a magnifying glass to exec it, so its not quite as handy as before where all 
I had to do was click on its text entry box in the panel left of the pager 
and start typing.  When enter was hit, it then opened the regular 
gnome-dictionary window to show you the answer(s).

Can anyone recall how that was done before F8?

Also, somewhere in the kdepim and kdepim-libs tomfoolery, k3b totally 
disappeared and I had to reinstall it.

Also, nothing seems able to be put in the tray dock, kmix used to live there 
along with several other apps, but now only the clipboard can be seen living 
there.  This was working correctly before the last kdepim & kdepim-lib update 

Today, I went to run yumex, but it complained another copy was running.  There 
wasn't.  I rebooted, same problem.  Finally I deleted /var/run/yum.pid and it 
runs.  But it has now been through the mirror list looking for an updates:

failure: repodata/comps-f8.xml from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to 

filelist with a good checksum for the 3rd time.  How long will it take to get 
all this synched again?

And amazingly, that error message was copy/pasted from the yum error window.  
No idea how long that has been working but thank you very much, Seth & 

Cheers, Gene
