2016-06-27 03:05:23 -0500 asked a question Credentials keeps being expired in F24

I have just upgraded my Fedora 23 system to 24, but it seems all the credentials in my online accounts has expired, and it does not matter if I log in with the correct password. If I delete the account, I get an error saying that the credential could not be deleted. It does not help if I try adding the account again, still expired.

Some of the entries I have in my calendar (exhcange) are duplicated in evolution, but does not apear on other devices. Is there any way to stop this bahavior? I have tried logging into a terminal (but not Gnome) and deleting ~/.cache/evolution but this did not work. I have also tried deleting the online account and adding it again, but still of no use.

I am using Fedora 20 fully updated.

2014-08-22 06:41:00 -0500 asked a question AMD A6-6310 laptop with Radeon R4 Graphics

I'm trying to set up Fedora 20 (latest kernel) on a laptop with an AMD A6 CPU (see above) and R4 graphics. In Gnome the mouse cursor is distorted with a black rectange apearing beneath.

I have tried installing the AMD Catalyst drivers, but it seems that the R4 is not supported. Any hints as to how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated
