2018-02-20 06:51:49 -0600 commented question dnf transaction check errors

Hi, Are you sure is that want you to do? You're enabling every repo configured in your system, so you will end up having that kind of package collision. In your particular case the i686 and the x86_64 (32 bits and 64 bits) versions of the same package and colliding trying to update on of the binaries included in the package. Which is completely the expected result. What are you trying to achieve with "enablerepo=*" ? Cheers

Hi, One of my friends told me about a Windows native application, you should able to run

certutil -hashfile the.installer.file.iso SHA256

to obtain the hash for the file and use the output to compare with the one published.

The error "The file is too long. This operation is currently limited to supporting files less than 2 gigabytes in size" points to a problem with the partition where you are trying to perform the test or some limitation on the interpreter (not an expert on PowerShell).

To be honest, trying to solve that issue is probably going to take a lot of effort and time. It will be probably easier and quicker (in the long run) just to burn the image to an USB drive and then use the check utility included with the distribution (Test this media before start)


2018-02-07 09:04:46 -0600 answered a question How to install pgRouting v2.5.2 on Fedora27


Why do you need a newer version of pgRouting? Any case, if you really need 2.5.2 you should give it a go to enable the PostgreSQL yum repos

Once enabled it should be just a matter to install the packages using DNF, and everything should be OK.

Best luck!

2018-01-10 09:59:09 -0600 answered a question cannot reinstall Fedora 26 xfce workstation with an encrypted /home volume

Hi, For the DNF part, take a look at this documentation How to Use dnf Command With A Proxy Server to setup the proxy for DNF. That should be enough. First, make sure you are actually able to access the internet from that box.

About the installation, sorry, I just don't get it, how is that the installation is not working because DNF is running? Are you using a Live media? Re-using an encrypted filesystem is really straight forward in the Fedora installer, you just need to provide the credentials.

Give it a try to the proxy thing, re-installing the whole system just because you cannot access the internet.

About npm, looks similar, check for $PATH (also on .bash_profile)

2018-01-05 06:30:09 -0600 commented answer 4GB memory in a 32-bit system, detecting only 2.9GB

Hi, just saw that, the Aspire 5610 is based on the 945GM chipset which has "32-bit interface to address up to 4 GB of memory", so you have a HW limitation on this and 2.9 will be the hard limit on memory allocation. More in Intel chipsets specs

2018-01-05 03:42:04 -0600 answered a question 4GB memory in a 32-bit system, detecting only 2.9GB

Hi, To detect all the memory on that configuration you need to install the PAE kernel.

Take a look at this thread What is the difference between 32-bit PAE and 64-bit kernels?


2018-01-05 03:38:14 -0600 commented question How to resolve kernal panic error

Let me get it straight. The DHCP server is running Fedora 7. The client is running...? Also Fedora? Any chance you can update either of those? Maybe migrate the server to CEntOS is a good idea.

2018-01-04 08:54:30 -0600 answered a question How can I resize my /home and /root partitions?

Hi, It will completely depend on your requirements. If you are not installing too many additional packages (blender?) 20GB for / should suffice. Looks like you already have a system running, what's your current utilisation of / ?

In my case I have 11GB of 20GB used in / and 546GB of 790GB in /home. Most of the space is dedicated to VMs that I use to work.

2017-11-15 05:57:48 -0600 commented answer How does the Pastebinit command work?

Looking at some of the issues reported with pastebinit ( ) there are some issues with the configurations deployed with pastebinit. As pastebin is installed and working with FEdora looks like it's worth using it. Cheers

2017-11-15 05:41:43 -0600 commented answer How does the Pastebinit command work?

Sorry, I've just realised you're using pastebinit, not pastebin (pastebin is deployed with a default Fedora install, I needed to install pastebinit). Have you tried using pastebin instead of pastebinit? Looks like pastebinit has some communication/authentication issues with the default servers (about script, no, it is not a redirect, that's the way that command works) Cheers

2017-11-13 10:31:15 -0600 answered a question How does the Pastebinit command work?

Hi, This is how I use it, your mileage can vary...

script /tmp/dummy.txt
do things
pastebin /tmp/dummy.txt
Uploading (2.9KiB)...

Works OK on Fedora 27,

Cheers, Casep

Hi, How do you know/test that V 3.0 is supported. The issue is that now the default on 4.13 was changed from 1,0 to 3.0 hence the problem in some servers. Yours looks like it's not responding OK to the default value. Cheers

2017-10-16 09:28:33 -0600 commented question Problem with repo in Fedora 14

Hi RedHat (CentOS) 6 is based on Fedora 12-14, you may have luck using that as a replacement of Fedora 14. Using Fedora 14 at the moment is not recommended at all. Cheers
