88 ASTARGS="$ASTARGS -C $AST_CONFIG/asterisk.conf"
The fix is to drop the "/asterisk.conf" from the end of line 88.
In any case, it appears to be going much smoother than previous Fedora installs. Sparks is doing a similar install across town. He has voiced similar opinions.
The problem is that F10 has a chicken/egg issue involving installation. You need the NVidia driver to get the xorg.conf you need to modify to see the cursor and you need the cursor so that you can click on the link on the NVidia website.
The bad news is that you'll have to guess where the cursor is, on the screen, a number of times. The good news is that it isn't that difficult. I had mine working after about 5 minutes of frustration.

- generate wiki pages to show off the conference room manager
- solder together a serial-to-IR interface for MythTV and document it

I wonder how much this will conflict with... What's that? Yes, dear...

One loss is the ability to use LiquidSoap as a source for hold music in Asterisk (even though the capbility can be recovered, it doesn't yet "fit well" with Icecast or Asterisk inputs).
At first, I attempted to use 64-bit Linux, with the objective of using LiquidSoap for a number of features. I had so much difficulty in getting Liq to work that I abandoned the 64-bit effort. Little did I know that it wouldn't work in 32-bit either.
To make a long story short, time constraints have left me with a 32-bit box with a borked Liq (only plays OGGs) and a number of work-arounds to get a few functions (Asterisk, MythTV, etc.) working. I've even resorted to using SqueezeCenter as a hold music source in Asterisk. It's overkill, using way too many processing cycles to provide a single function, but it works.

If 1 in 200 messages is infected, I'd guess that 1 in 400 is a return message (I receive a lot of these). Although the mail was sent with good intentions, it demonstrates a lack of understanding of infection vectors and is basically a waste of resources. For AOL, the message size was 4K. Because it was an error message, it was sent to my account and root on my mail server, so I get to delete this twice. This also ate up 8K of bandwidth. For me, it's not that bad. For AOL, it has to be monstrous (i.e., they're wasting their own money).
If your anti-virus utility scans inbound email for viruses, please TURN OFF your auto-response feature. It actually compounds a number of problems (bandwidth, storage) rather than prompting the owner of an infected machine to fix his junk.
