Re: That ole Livna Problem/That ole VLC Problem

many people witness the same event and their recollections can and do
often differ.

since you are familiar with vlc and the repositories, where were you?
Why didn't you fill the gaps that you seem to feel were real?

I'm in the US and thus under the same constraints that the fedora project claims prevent them from mentioning anything that might help circumvent patent or dmca laws. And I don't have a place to put the instructions on how to use livna to install the Nvidia driver that would be any easier for someone to find than livna itself. The fedora project omits that as a matter of policy.

Some people curse darkness and some light candles...just sayin'

There's not much you can do about other people's policies. It's sort of like watching a train wreck, though. What is happening to Karl (and probably lots of other people who aren't as persistent and don't get as far as this mail list) is a result of a policy that does not put users/usability first.
