you can clean your conf directories ~/.local/share/gnome-* or move them somewhere else to test if it's coming from it. Warning , this way you will lose you shell extension and configuration.

installing by default in the root system is bad practice, use something like ./configure --prefix=~/Software/myprogdir/ or at least use the /usr/local/

there is a now a open version openh264, no sure it's compatible with chrome or you got x264 from rpm-fusion-free

2016-12-07 15:08:55 -0600 asked a question how to use github webhook with copr

when i use fedora copr infra, i usually upload a srpm file for convenience, but recently a github repo maintainer ask me to help him to automatized his build for rpm, i did see the possibility to use webhook with github but after loooking at all blogs and documentation and didn't find any example how to use it ( i failed badly with tito ).

could someone give a link to an how-to (for dummy like me) or wrote me a simple example how to do it with a spec file and an existing github repo.

by the way this could make copr popular to upstream dev.

sudo dnf distro-sync libidn

from in case of trouble

sudo dnf info libidn

to see from which repo this package come

if it's coming from an alternative repo and it's version is newer that the one from fedora you can downgrade it

`sudo dnf downgrade libidn

2016-12-07 14:37:41 -0600 answered a question help me fix the kernel module

i suppose you did install virtualbox through an external repo , now you have updated your kernel but the virtualbox kernel module is not up to date at now.

reboot and at the grub menu, select a previous version of your kernel, hopefully you should have the module for the previous versions.

by using sudo command without knowing what going one will break your system for sure.

gnome shell require 3D capabilities, you can solve the problem by installing the last proprietary driver after the disk install. or

the color should be red and during the freeze , so before reboot you maybe see some line/warning/error repeated.

2016-08-09 14:15:33 -0600 answered a question Fedora24 Live X blackscreen (+cursor) then crash? GTX 1070

to disable nouveau at boot time

nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau

gtx 1070 is pascal family hardware, it's only supported by the kernel >= 4.8, you need to install the proprietary driver after ( text mode ) install. Usually a degraded graphic mode is proposed at boot time for the live cd, maybe it will work for you.

2015-06-22 01:47:12 -0600 marked best answer best way to update fedora from command line

I was wondering what is the best way to update my fedora os from command line.

  1. yum update (safe ?)
  2. dnf update (fast but buggy)
  3. pkcon update ( no control )

For example as nvidia blob user i always got into trouble with rpmfusion package and kernel version mismatch. ( kernel 3.16.2 for example ) it's maybe due to the fact i misuse the cmdline.

i'm interested in best practices for cmdline.

PS: i'm using now negativo17 repo for nvidia blob.

2015-06-11 10:58:31 -0600 answered a question Fedora 22 shutdown/reboot hang

look at this web page for debugging systemd

  • at boot, in grub selection menu, edit one entry with key e
  • add this to the kernel line ( linux16 ) systemd.log_level=debug systemd.log_target=kmsg log_buf_len=1M enforcing=0
  • ctrl-x to boot
    • debug should be active for boot and shutdown
2015-06-09 12:26:06 -0600 answered a question WIFI not showing after update

you should have this package installed kmod-wl-4.0.4-303.fc22.x86_64.x86_64 , which doesn't exist yet

install the akmod to build it

dnf install akmod-wl kernel-devel kernel

to build for a specific kernel

akmods --force --kernels 4.0.4-303.fc22.x86_64

normally kmods are re-built at boot time

2015-06-09 04:10:57 -0600 commented question WIFI not showing after update

is the module loaded ? lsmod | grep wl

2015-06-09 03:57:55 -0600 commented question Kernels versions later then 3.17 randomly console floods on boot

it's a bug of nouveau. I encounter it too and switched to the proprietary blob ;(

2015-06-08 15:29:49 -0600 commented question Fedora 22 shutdown/reboot hang

got this too , but it's followed by NetworkManager[917]: <info> caught signal 15, shutting down normally.

2015-06-08 15:25:09 -0600 commented question Fedora 22 shutdown/reboot hang

there is sometime timeout for shutting down service up to 3 min , did you wait long enough ?

look like a race condition too , with the bus shutdown before network-manager , but the log level is "info"
