Please provide us with more information about your OS (your display manager, for instance). If you're using Wayland, do understand that programs built for X may not work as expected. You might want to take a look at this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.p...

2015-09-10 12:27:20 -0600 commented answer Timeout errors in DNF

Thank you so much! It worked like a charm. DNF now instantly connects to the mirror, and downloading packages is faster than ever.

2015-09-10 09:13:11 -0600 asked a question Timeout errors in DNF

While trying to install anything through DNF, I will either end up having a timeout error, or a error that says I "encountered the end of file". I have therefore not been able to install anything through the terminal, and "Software" isn't working properly either.

What is the problem? Unfortunately, I cannot change my DNS as outlined in an answer to a similar question, and am therefore looking for another solution.

Thanks.

2015-09-09 11:04:45 -0600 asked a question Very high memory usage from gnome-shell

When I boot into F22 gnome-shell, it starts at 60 MB. Then, as I interact with my programs, it goes around 200 MB (the average gnome-shell usage on my end). However, once in a blue moon, the entire desktop environment will start lagging and stuttering, and gnome-shell will be the culprit behind that, at more than 2 GB of memory usage.

Why does that happen? I check the problem out on various online forums, and it seems like the Nvidia drivers are what often cause the problem. However, I am using Radeon graphics. I therefore fail to see how the Nvidia drivers would affect me.

Thanks.

Guess deleting the UEFI partition would work just fine. I did something similar, by deleting just the .EFI file inside the BOOT folder.

Thanks everyone. I forgot to mention that my BIOS was set to boot in Legacy mode, and it wasn't the BIOS.

I was using a LiveUSB, and I got it to boot into Legacy mode by going to the /EFI/BOOT folder in the root of the USB and deleting BOOTX64.EFI. The drive then ended up having no EFI support, and worked just how I wanted it to. I guess this is the same as deleting the UEFI partition on the drive, but I didn't take that risk.

2015-09-07 21:08:05 -0600 asked a question Install Fedora 22 x64 in Legacy mode without UEFI

Hello. I've been trying to install Fedora 22 x64 on my system lately, and I've had no success, because the installer always ends up asking me to mount /boot/efi for my UEFI system. While my system does support UEFI, I do not have a GPT partitioning, and have Windows 7 installed with MBR partitioning.

"For a UEFI installation, you must include an EFI System Partition on a GPT-formatted disk, mounted at /boot/efi.", says the Installer. I do not want a UEFI installation, but want a legacy x64 installation using MBR instead. How do I not make the drive boot into UEFI mode, or install using the non-UEFI method?

Also, due to my lack of any GPT partitioning or UEFI system on the hard disk, I do not have any efi partitions to mount at /boot/efi.

Thank you for looking at my problem.

EDIT: Problem solved by deleting BOOTX64.EFI in /BOOT/EFI folder.
