2019-01-31 02:45:24 -0600 commented answer Fedora KDE spin, possible audio equalizers?

Hm, it just pops up and then disappears. It requires installing gnome-icon-theme so I'm wondering if it is not for KDE.

2018-12-27 01:26:57 -0600 marked best answer Is it possible to use MS-SQL in Fedora?

Sorry for my vague question, it is due to my shallow knowledge. Basically in my company we have an MS-SQL server deployed and after providing with the correct username and password, I can ask query there using Python with pyodbc, read SQL scripts and retrieve the data I want.

Now I'm wondering if I can do the same thing in Fedora. It seems like MS-SQL supports RHEL but not Fedora, but I think there should be a method. I heard this thing about Docker and what not, but I'm not sure what is the most easiest method to connect to the MS-SQL server in Fedora. I do have a separate Windows machine just in case so if it is not a good idea to use Linux than I have to fall back to Windows...

Also what is your opinion about MS-SQL for developers? Should I suggest to the higher-ups that maybe next time we have to use MariaDB or PostgreSQL or something? This is a small startup and we don't even have a database administrator...

Thanks in advance.

Hello, everyone. I'm using Fedora 29 KDE Spin, and finally the recent kernel doen't seem to freeze the machine, which is nice. However, I found that there are some dependency problems related to a package:

[---@localhost ~]$ sudo dnf update

Dependencies resolved.

Complete!

When I first started using Fedora, I didn't know the RPM fusion thing and messed up with my repos, and googling tells me that it might be very well the cause of this problem. I'm currently not sure whether I should use the '--allowerasing' option to possibly erase the current version and get the most recent version from my current repolists.

Here are some additional information:
