Adding your username to Sudo List in Fedora

Just trying new Fedora Release 11, but I cannot do software update by using the user which I created after first boot. The error message says "the user is now in sudo list". I think most of you might had same issue, and I found the following solution for you.

Log in as root.

su --login

Add your user to the sudoers file.

echo 'your_plain_loginname_here ALL=(ALL) ALL’ >> /etc/sudoers

Now the error message should be gone!

One more tips for those users had Linux box behind the firewall, and you want to download software via Text Internet. You can do it in 2 ways, one is permanently add the following line in the profile, or type the following line in the terminal window:

export http_proxy="http://your_proxy_server_address:port"

Wallpaper for Nokia N97

Today I just got an Nokia N97 cell phone. And it's white color, it looks better than those black ones.

Here is the picture:

Compare to iPhone 3GS, personally I should said, N97 had better functions, features, specially open multiple applications at the same time, I think that's reason cause the software running slow on N97 sometimes. Today I tried one of N97's cool feature - FM transimitter when I was driving to home. I started the navigation system on N97, I can listen the voice guidance from car radio system which had 6 speakers, and the music player on N97 palyed my favorite music in the background at the same time through my car radio system. Isn't that cool?

Although iPhone 3GS had better ID, touch screen and faster respond time when open an application. But if let me choose, I will still choose N97. And one thing not good for N97 is, when every time I pick up the call, I need to manually unlock the phone before I can answer. Also I think Nokia should improve their UI. The current UI looks too outdated.

And here is two wallpapers that I found, hope you like them also.
