What version of Fail2Ban are you using? You might have a bug.

dnf list fail2ban

https://github.com/fail2ban/fail2ban/...

Try:

sudo systemctl edit --full fail2ban.service

LimitNOFILE = 10000

2017-09-23 00:19:21 -0600 answered a question Fedora 26 issues! Please Help! Can't Update my computer!

Firstly, did you install a 32-bit version of glibc?

i686 = 32-bit Intel x86 arch 
x86_64 = 64-bit Intel x86 arch

Remove:

sudo dnf remove krb5-libs-1.15.1-28.fc26.i686

Clean all and show dups:

dnf clean all 

dnf list --showduplicates glibc

Requires Rescue Mode if only 1 glibc version is installed:

rpm -e --nodeps --justdb glibc glibc-common

x86_64: dnf install glibc

Also, try:

DNF History:

sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf check-update

sudo dnf history

sudo dnf history undo 23 -y
2017-09-22 23:31:08 -0600 answered a question Help please -- Server stuck "start job running for hold" on boot

Before trying Rescue Mode, try booting in to multi-user mode.

Example (UEFI systems) the grub2.cfg menu entry:

menuentry 'Fedora (4.12.13-300.fc26.x86_64) 26 (Workstation Edition)' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os --unrestricted $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-4.12.13-300.fc26.x86_64-advanced-cb4f51fa-f414-40c9-b208-15f9d89641ce' {

Booting to multi-user target mode

To enter multi-user mode during boot, on the GRUB 2 boot screen, press the e key for edit.

systemd.unit=multi-user.target or 3

linuxefi /vmlinuz-4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/f26-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root ... rhgb quiet systemd.unit=multi-user.target

- or -

Booting to Rescue target mode

Rescue mode provides a convenient single-user environment and allows you to repair your system in situations when it is unable to complete a normal booting process. In rescue mode, the system attempts to mount all local file systems and start some important system services, but it does not activate network interfaces or allow more users to be logged into the system at the same time. In Fedora, rescue mode is equivalent to single user mode and requires the root password.

To enter rescue mode during boot, on the GRUB 2 boot screen, press the e key for edit.

Add the following parameter at the end of the linux line on 64-Bit IBM Power Series, the linux16 line on x86-64 BIOS-based systems, or the linuxefi line on UEFI systems:

systemd.unit=rescue.target or 1 or emergency

linuxefi /vmlinuz-4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/f26-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root ... rhgb quiet systemd.unit=rescue.target

- or -

linuxefi /vmlinuz-4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/f26-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root ... rhgb quiet 1

- or -

linuxefi /vmlinuz-4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/f26-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root ... rhgb quiet emergency

Additional Troubleshooting:

systemd-analyze blame
systemd-analyze critical-chain
systemd-analyze critical-chain network.target local-fs.target

sudo systemctl list-dependencies

Now, if you want to disable a service, then you simply do:

systemctl disable <name>

2017-09-21 10:58:28 -0600 answered a question Can't run VirtualBox after installation

Remove any VirtualBox packages you've installed.

Remove any VirtualBox repos in: /etc/yum.repos.d/.

Add the VirtualBox.repo file to /etc/yum.repos.d:

sudo tee -a /etc/yum.repos.d/VirtualBox.repo <<'__HERE__'
[virtualbox]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - VirtualBox
baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/$releasever/$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
repo_gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc
__HERE__

Clean and refresh your dnf repo cache:

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update

Install the latest VirtualBox package (Make sure to accept the GPG key, you should be asked):

sudo dnf install VirtualBox-5.1-5.1.28_117968_fedora25-1.x86_64

Finally, download and install the VirtualBox Extension Pack:

Important: Please install the extension pack with the same version as your installed version of VirtualBox

2017-09-20 12:45:17 -0600 answered a question Fedora 26 Wifi Doesn't Work - Mediatek 7630e

I'm making some assumptions here, and they might not be correct, but If you have UEFI-native mode (BIOS, but not BIOS) then you will want to check if Secure Boot is enabled. Additionally, consider enabling BIOS compatibility mode (CSM) which by default disables Secure Boot. After you've sorted this matter out, follow the installation section, but your family is RedHat using the dnf package manager.

build-essentials (dnf):

sudo dnf install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel kernel-headers

This will install more than you need, but here:

sudo dnf grouplist

sudo dnf groupinstall "C Development Tools and Libraries" "Development Tools"

2017-09-20 10:54:56 -0600 answered a question Vim.desktop doesn't work corectly. [Solved]

You will need to create a vim.desktop file in:

/home/[user]/.local/share/applications

Example vim.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=VIM
Comment=Vim IMproved
Exec=/usr/bin/vim
Icon=/tmp/vim-300x300.png
Terminal=true

Then reload your gnome-shell:

killall -HUP gnome-shell
