2014-02-16 11:10:41 -0600 answered a question Fedora 20 Install: Preserving existing /home/

Before reading my advice, please note that I strongly advice you to make a backup before any installation or upgrading!

There are other files listing the users (mainly /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow). When installing from a different distribution, the installation will need to delete these files (because Fedora might have different default users than your previous distro).

Preserving /home will make sure it does not format the /home partition, and you can use your data after the reinstallation, but it will NOT recreate the user automatically, which is why this is a second option.

If this was your first ever user and the old distro also started counting from uid 1000 for accounts, creating a new user should "magically" create a new user with the correct homedir.

Otherwise (and this might be a good idea to do anyway), you will likely need to chown the /home directory after installing (as the uid might have changed a bit), after which it should work.

2014-02-16 11:00:06 -0600 answered a question Can't boot with newly built Linux kernel

Your computer has probably secureboot turned on, as this is required for Window 8+ certification. As such, it will only run kernels signed by a Microsoft signed key.

To boot a custom kernel, you will need to get into your UEFI setup, and disable secureboot.

Could you please press Escape during the start procedure (when the icon is still filling), and post the last line that's printed here?

2014-02-16 06:00:13 -0600 answered a question Unable to Configure MySql (MariaDB) to run at startup

Please note that also the last one says "mariadb.service", as that is the service file. For backwards compatibility, there is a mysql.service which symlinks there.

As such, to enable it, execute "systemctl enable mariadb.service".

Hello,

This would be an issue with the migration to the new OpenID provider. Could you email(puiterwijk@fedoraproject.org) or privmsg me on IRC (puiterwijk on freenode) to fix this?

2012-08-03 03:34:08 -0600 answered a question Kernel 3.4.6 no boot option

This looks like a grub 1 boot entry.

For the new format, you might want to use something like:

title Fedora (3.4.6-2.fc17.x86_64)
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel vmlinuz-3.4.6-2.fc17.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/luks-906ec399-c797-4d9c-8cb0-91e66dd62ad5 ro rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 SYSFONT=True  KEYTABLE=br-abnt2 rd.luks.uuid=luks-8f7ede84-309c-4504-9792-e049ef55f705 rd.md.uuid=43544800:8b65b2d9:65fc4d69:4095800b rd.luks.uuid=luks-906ec399-c797-4d9c-8cb0-91e66dd62ad5 rd.md.uuid=e74b4239:7715f5b5:a0cb22de:efeb3a5e rd.md.uuid=85b41a35:96a82ab8:2db5deae:533b944b LANG=en_US.UTF-8 rhgb quiet nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau

2012-08-03 03:24:11 -0600 answered a question Install Fedora 17 to GPT partition

It uses GPT by default on UEFI systems, and I believe also 64-bit discs.

Another thing you could try is to format it with live media using gparted.

Hello,

Could you try to install 'cpp' through yum?

Execute the following command in a terminal: sudo yum install cpp
