@skytux I know your comment is old now, but you can pass the --unencrypted-home argument to have the home partition unencrypted.

I am also surprised to see this question getting this little traffic, but I am happy that you posted your results after you found out how, since I wanted to do the same right now. However, I couldn't quite get it to work. What eventually worked for me was gsettings reset org.gnome.Weather.Application locations to remove all the locations from the database. I am sure you could manipulate the entry to remove just a single location, but this satisfied my needs.

2017-07-02 11:50:15 -0600 asked a question How does Fedora detect if my computer has an internet connection?

I noticed that the little network icon in the bar at the top of the screen changes if the computer loses or gains access to the internet. I was wondering how this works.

My assumption is that it is probing some public server and if it gets a response, it knows that it is connected to the internet. If that's true, what host is that?

(I am using Fedora 25 GNOME, if that matters)
