thanks, for the warning
pulse auto did the same thing before and we patched it to limit logging
but on fedora ML some people said that we should actually fix the logging
But still, I think the biggest issue here is that rsyslog doesn't
enforce any kind of rate limitting and is happy to let random users
fill up /var.
This is a first-class DoS. Simply do a "cat /dev/urandom | strings |
logger" and you can make the whole system go bonkers. And it won't
even be accounted to your own disk quota. Yay.

xorg-x11-drv-fglrx and kmod-fglrx have been updated to the 9.4 beta
which is originally found in Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04) and have been patched
for 2.6.29, so it should be working well with Fedora 11. However, one of
the side effects of the 2.6.29 patch is that fglrx repeats the same few
errors over and over again into /var/log/messages and /var/log/dmesg
(the error itself seems harmless, as the driver continues to function
correctly). I recommend that you check on these files every few days to
make sure they aren't growing too quickly.
