2016-02-20 04:52:09 -0500 asked a question Laptop hibernate on critical battery

Hi, what's the best way to make my laptop hibernate instead of powering it off when battery is critically low in Fedora 23? I used gsettings previously (f20) but now it seem not to be an available option to set, look:

[claudio@f23x8664 ~]$ gsettings list-keys org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power
idle-brightness
power-button-action
priority
idle-dim
sleep-inactive-ac-type
sleep-inactive-battery-timeout
sleep-inactive-battery-type
sleep-inactive-ac-timeout
ambient-enabled
active

Maybe it could be possible editing /etc/UPower/UPower.conf. At the end of the file I read:

[...]
# The action to take when "TimeAction" or "PercentageAction" above has been
# reached for the batteries (UPS or laptop batteries) supplying the computer
#
# Possible values are:
# PowerOff
# Hibernate
# HybridSleep
#
# If HybridSleep isn't available, Hibernate will be used
# If Hibernate isn't available, PowerOff will be used
CriticalPowerAction=HybridSleep

But it does not honor neither HybridSleep nor Hibernate.

Any idea how to test it?

Thanks, Claudio

2015-05-30 03:33:39 -0500 commented answer Knowing exact time of power outage looking on system logs files

@shatadru Actually I need something to troubleshoot now that the event has already happened... any file with a time-stamps in it which is frequently written by the OS I could look at?

2015-05-27 09:06:32 -0500 commented answer Knowing exact time of power outage looking on system logs files

@Rabin I like this but what if minutes accuracy is not enough? Plus, this should have been setup before the system went down but my power outage already happened so I need something now to investigate and it cannot be cron for past events... unfortunately :(

2015-05-27 07:14:41 -0500 commented answer Knowing exact time of power outage looking on system logs files

@mclmmc what I really need to know is the time the system went down not when it came up. I believe the "last" command provides the date/time when the OS comes UP.

2015-05-27 03:52:21 -0500 asked a question Knowing exact time of power outage looking on system logs files

When a linux box comes UP again after a power outage, which is the best file(s) to take a look at in order know with the best accuracy at what time (hh:mm and possibly seconds!) the linux box went DOWN?

2015-03-27 11:47:46 -0500 marked best answer Customize fedora 17 countdown logo

Any chance to have the fedora 17 countdown logo smaller (or bigger)?

http://fedoraproject.org/en/counter

Apparently this is the only code available at the moment and it does not seem to be customizable (height/width) to fit some smaller website layout.

<script id="fedora-banner" type="text/javascript" src="http://fedoraproject.org/static/js/release-counter-ext.js?lang=en"></script>

Ideas?

2015-03-27 11:47:43 -0500 marked best answer torify ssh

Does anybody know how to torify ssh in fedora 16?

I would like to be able to run a command like the following to login to a remote server:

torify ssh <remote-host-ip>

Installing torify with yum is not sufficient, any idea?

Note: tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system.

2015-03-27 11:44:28 -0500 marked best answer iso manupulator software

I have not done this before so I am totally new at this.

Can anyone suggest me some iso manipulator software?

What should I do is getting a live distro and remove/add packages, files, etc. and then re-package back the customized live distro.

2015-03-27 11:44:15 -0500 marked best answer Why ifup takes so long to set up a static IP?

I admit it I switched back to fedora 15 (and now 16) after many years playing Ubuntu. I feel very comfortable with fedora 16 now but only one thing is annoying me: bringing up a network card takes to long!

Is there any geek out there able to tell me why if I run

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup eth0

it takes almost 20 seconds to setup a static IP address? I would understand (or at least try to understand) if I was running a DHCP on my router, but I am not!

In any previous Ubuntu version I tested, bringing up a network interface (even a wireless encrypted one) was a matter of few seconds...

edit:

Where is the gnome-sound-recorder in fedora 16? Is there any equivalent tool shipped with this distro? Can anyone suggest me a good one?

2014-01-28 17:23:08 -0500 marked best answer yum group remove

Few days ago I installed KDE plasma desktop with the following command

yum groupinstall "KDE Software Compilation"

Tried it a little bit but then I decided to stay with Gnome 3 and removed it with the following command:

yum group remove "KDE Software Compilation"

The removal went well except that it removed more than the necessary, it removed for example the "gnome-terminal" package.

I could easily fix it rerunning the

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

command but my doubt is: why did it happen?
