Hmm, your answer puzzles me. The dnf message says:

"Downloading successful, but checksum doesn't match."

If (according to your answer) dnf reports a successful download, when in fact it was not, then that indicates a bug in dnf file management vs download failures..... However, I rather think that there was a temporary mistake in the repository, which seems to have been fixed by now. -R.

Something's wrong in the repository! R.

2015-06-06 12:29:56 -0600 commented answer F22 netinst: minimal install fails

Oh, I see. The conclusion in the Bugzilla report is that the culprit is an update of libselinux, done at the end of the install. I then assume this will be fixed when the broken update is replaced with a correct other words: it is just a matter of time for this problem to go away. Is that right? Bor.

2015-06-05 02:40:02 -0600 asked a question F22 netinst: minimal install fails


I use the Fedora 22 Server or Workstation netinst iso with the "Minimal Install" option, without any Add-Ons.

The installation goes fine, but the system hangs during the reboot process. The following error messages appear on the screen:

[FAILED] Failed to start Create Volatile Files and Directories.
See "systemctl status systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service" for details.
[FAILED] Failed to start OpenSSH Server Key Generation.
See "systemctl status sshd-keygen.service" for details.
[FAILED] Failed to start filewalld - dynamic firewall daemon.
See "systemctl status firewalld.service" for details.
[FAILED] Failed to start Login Service.
See "systemctl status systemd-logind.service" for details.

The boot process hangs indefinitely on the last message.....

Apparently something is wrong with the dependencies check for a minimal install.

Regards, Bor.

2015-01-20 08:09:33 -0600 answered a question How to kill the terminal sounds?

If you connect headphones, then I think all sounds (except the system beep) go to your headset; that's what happens on my PC. I then use 'xset' to silence the beep: "xset -b" or "xset b 0 0 0". R.

2015-01-17 08:50:57 -0600 commented question How come there's a pre-release version of X server on my system?

Check out this bug report:

One of the messages there has a link to a fix: adding a line in /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config.


2015-01-16 06:43:28 -0600 answered a question F21: can I have multiple X logins on the console?

Eventually I figured that this problem is somewhat solved on the Fedora bugzilla list:

The crux is to add a file /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config with the content "needs_root_rights = auto".

There are still dangling problems with F21 on this topic, which are hopefully ironed out in the next release F22.


2015-01-15 21:44:16 -0600 commented question F21: libacl package has no "/lib/"?

It turns out that the libacl-devel package will put the in place. There seems to be a logic why that is so, but I don't get it. Anyhow, after installing libacl-devel, is there :).

2015-01-15 20:52:26 -0600 commented answer F21: can I have multiple X logins on the console?

That was indeed possible before F21. However, in F21 you cannot do this anymore: the console goes blank, becomes unresponsive, and renders unusable; a remote login is needed to kill the hanging Xorg program. Errors in /var/log/Xorg.3.log reveal the culprit: "[4015.487] (EE) intel(0): failed to set mode: Permission denied [13]". This seems not to be a bug, but a new F21 feature with nasty side-effects!

2015-01-15 19:06:57 -0600 commented answer F21: can I have multiple X logins on the console?

Indeed, I was not referring to 'multi-seat' setup, but to 'single-seat-multi-Xsession' setup. Until I upgraded to F21 I was always able to do:

  • One user logged on via the standard Xlogin console on VT1.
  • A second user would use ctrl-alt-F2 to switch to the text console on VT2.
  • After login in, the second user typed: "startx -- :1 vt8"

However, in F21 the startx does not work by changes made somewhere deep in the F21 system. It seems to be related to not running Xorg as root anymore, but I can't grasp the details of what actually has changed in F21. So: how to do another Xlogin in F21?

2015-01-14 09:40:53 -0600 commented question F21: libacl package has no "/lib/"?

OK, I have done just that in bugzilla.
