2016-12-15 10:00:54 -0500 commented question F25 kernel 4.8.13 won't boot

Same here. I was lucky enough to have a vanilla kernel (4.8.12) compiled and available.

Really nasty to roll out upgrades that lead to a machine that doesn't boot. Systemctl shows a ton of failures and then it automatically reboots.

2013-02-23 05:02:18 -0500 answered a question New Install, Distro Upgrade Failed

I had a similar sudden power failure during upgrade (kids). Here are few things that may help you out:

  • try running package-cleanup to remove the possible dupes
  • remove offending packages (with yum remove), you can always install them back afterwards
  • you might want to reinstall the package (or packages) during which it shutdown, if you have an idea what they were
  • and then if you get it through, it'd still be a good idea to verify the packages

But if it's indeed a fresh new install that you're upgrading, I certainly recommend starting over.

Ok, is the module loaded? Try 'modprobe wl' Check the result with 'dmesg' and 'ifconfig -a'

2013-02-06 10:49:19 -0500 commented question creating own shell in linux

why the up vote? no research of your own, clearly just fishing for information to a school assignment. I'm sorry, but if you don't have a clue, you don't want to write a shell and no matter what this is not the place to ask information about it.

2013-02-06 10:42:43 -0500 answered a question set default entry in grub on fedora 18

Edit that line in /etc/grub2/grub.cfg :

set default="0"

That 0 means first entry, 1 for second and so forth.

Notice that this does not survive grub2-mkconfig, and also notice that this is not the recommended method, but since you did link to the recommended and didn't get that to work, I feel it's ok to suggest this, because this does work.

2013-02-06 10:34:11 -0500 commented question Fedora 16 does not recognize USB based device?

Clearly, OP is not around anymore. With the given information it is impossible to give an answer. I'd down vote the question but can't because of the restrictions.

2013-02-06 10:31:53 -0500 commented answer Update from Fedora 17 to Fedora 18

I concur, and as with all upgrades, one should take the time to follow the instructions. Saves time in long the run.

2013-02-05 13:28:00 -0500 answered a question Uninstall Fedora Utils from Fedora 18

To anser your original question:

sudo yum remove fedorautils

Or is there something I'm missing or you're not telling us?

After that you might want to remove or disable the repo. Look for /etc/yum.repos.d for the new fedorautils.repo, edit (ENABLED=0) or remove the file alltogether. If it replaced some packages when it was installed, they should be downgradable afterwards with yum downgrade.

How to live with it and modify it, well that's a discussion that should take place within the external project itself.

2013-02-04 10:57:17 -0500 commented question wireless hardware disabled

Any chance the laptop has a wireless toggle which happens to be off? Most laptops these days have such a key or a key combination. Sometimes a dedicated switch and sometimes a Fn + some F1-F12 button with an antenna logo with some waves around. Based on a pavillion g6 has that feature in Fn+F12.

2013-02-04 09:09:47 -0500 commented question wireless hardware disabled

Disabled how? Where does it show that it's disabled? Does it work in Windows? Did you read your post (the unformatted lspci is not exactly fun to read)? If you want answers it's best to show a little effort yourself, too.

2013-02-03 15:15:57 -0500 commented question Fedora 18 failed to boot?

Wonky kernel versions you got there. Fedora 18 has 3.6.something in its installer and now upgraded runs 3.7.4. What graphics card are you using? And if it's nvidia or ati, did you have some extra drivers installed for it, back when it was 17 (I assume, you only mentioned "to 18 from 18"). In any case, boot up with the alternative "3.03" and run a yum upgrade from there and see where that gets you in terms of bootability.

2013-02-03 14:46:58 -0500 answered a question wireless fedora 18

I don't know why it can't find the gpg key if you installed the rpmfusion release pacakge, but you could try:

yum install --nogpgcheck kmod-wl

2013-02-03 12:28:03 -0500 commented question Fedora18 keyboard layout switch "both shifts" how?

You sure it's not somewhere closer to layouts? KDE has it there, many alternatives for layout switching that cannot be used for shortcuts to other stuff quite as easily. And if gnome3 is getting on your nerves, try something different, e.g. kde or xfce.

2013-02-03 12:17:32 -0500 commented answer Auto running two commands at boot

You need to link it manually, because the compatibility script has not install section: ln -s /usr/lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service /etc/systemd/system/

2013-02-03 12:04:34 -0500 commented question Auto running two commands at boot

Didn't the rpmfusion kmod-wl work? See if not already familiar with it.

2013-02-03 10:30:43 -0500 commented question Unable to restore from Fedora 18 suspension or hibernation

You might want to be a little more verbose about where and how it gets stuck during resume. Or don't you see anything as it starts to wake up? Which window manager you're using is also an important factor here.

2013-02-03 10:13:06 -0500 commented question Can fedora be installed on a HP dl580 G7?

It'd help to know which version of Fedora you're trying to install, and which install media you're trying with. Servers can be trickier than desktops with their user interfaces. But at that point, if I understood you correctly, you're still in syslinux/isolinux, doesn't the timer roll? or isn't the keyboard active? (frankly, I'd go with RedHat / CentOs in the firstplace anyway, unless you have some solid reasons to go with a beelding-edge distribution like Fedora)

2013-02-03 10:09:54 -0500 answered a question What fedora features will not be available if I install it on a virtual machine?

Almost everything is there, but perhaps most notably hw graphics acceleration (especially 3D) will not be available. Other than that, I can't think of other notable features that wouldn't be there. Gfx is just understandably sluggish.

2013-02-03 10:04:32 -0500 answered a question retaining yum installed packages

Assuming you haven't cleaned them out, you can find them from /var/cache/yum/ subdirectories. If that is what you're asking, if not, please clarify.

2013-02-03 09:36:45 -0500 commented answer How to toggle full sceen mode in virt-manager?

Wish I could upvote, but I found this with elinks from a tty2 console as I managed to stuck my X into that, too, and didn't figure that out.

2013-02-01 03:31:57 -0500 answered a question How to Mount Android Tablet running Honeycomb

Verify from you Android settings that you have the USB mass storage mode enabled. Mine are in "settings" -> "wireless and networks" -> "USB utilities" -> "connect storage to PC".

Then plug in to your PC. I'm not sure if your Rhel 6.3 will automount it nor where it mounts it if does, but if did mount it, it's probably to /media and you can always check it with:


and look for recent additions. if it didn't mount it, you should find the device from:

dmesg | tail

and look for /dev/sdX# where X is from a-z and # is a number usually between 1 and 4. mount it with something like:

mkdir /tmp/adev

sudo mount /dev/sdX# /tmp/adev

notice that, it may appear as two devices, one for internal sdcard and one for external, depending on your device, which I'm not familiar with.
