2013-11-05 09:59:28 -0500 commented question how is systemd automount configured

Yes, that should work. What is the full line of your fstab entry?

2013-11-05 09:46:25 -0500 commented question Re-arrange task bar in Fedora 19 w/gnome-classic?

I have not used Gnome Classic Session, but this may be expected behavior. You will have to file enhancement requests with Gnome.

2013-11-05 09:06:59 -0500 commented question not able to run fedora 19 in virtual box

Did you select "Fedora (64-bit)" or "Fedora" during the setup wizard? It is important to select the one with (64-bit) if you are using a 64-bit DVD ISO.

2013-11-05 08:58:23 -0500 answered a question How to install glib from git?

Autotools will install to /usr/local by default instead of /usr. Attempting to install software outside of yum is possible but it complicates your system administration. Any Fedora update to glib will overwrite your custom installation.

I would recommend installing a virtual machine for Fedora rawhide and testing inside the VM. Rawhide has glib 2.39.0 and would be a better environment to test gnome-software overall.

If you must test it on your host system then you can rebuild the glib 2.39.0 RPM for your version of Fedora (or just upgrade to Fedora rawhide).

2013-05-03 10:10:12 -0500 answered a question can i use fedora 18 to root my Nexus 7?

Yes, you can use the Android SDK tools. I did so with my Nexus 4.

Use this su binary for gaining root:

Zip file for loading via recovery mode:

Recovery image:

First, place the Superuser ZIP file on your tablet in /sdcard.

Second, use the "fastboot" tool from the Android SDK to flash the recovery. You can either flash it permanently or do it one-time.

Third, use the clockwork recovery image to install the ZIP file from /sdcard.

Forth, reboot your tablet. You're done.

2013-03-15 13:53:31 -0500 commented answer Fedora 18 server version?

If it puts your mind at ease, yes, you will get the server version. However, there is no technical distinction. It is just "Fedora".

I have never been able to use Webex with OpenJDK. You will have to try the Oracle package or contact Cisco to get them to fix it.

2013-03-15 02:37:37 -0500 answered a question gnome-shell bug that let you enter without entering the password

Well, what you did was kill gnome-shell and gnome-shell restarts itself so it will appear that you got in without a password, but in reality you killed a process and it restarted on its own.

Killing a process is not a bug.

2013-03-15 02:31:30 -0500 answered a question Fedora 18, Fedora 4 compatibility

Won't work at all without a lot of reconfiguring/recompiling.

Fedora 18 will compile binaries that will require kernel 2.6.32 and higher -- even if you static link. Fedora 4 had kernel 2.6.11.

You can compile 32-bit binaries on a 64-bit host. I'd recommend running a non-network connected VM for Fedora 4 to compile in. I think the kernel requirement was upped in Fedora 6 to 2.6.18 so Fedora 5 is the last version that would work for you.

No chance you can update the embedded system to something more recent? Might be worth looking at Red Hat or CentOS if it is meant to be a long-term platform.

2013-03-15 02:25:46 -0500 answered a question 3D monitors with Fedora

The only 3D support available is through the closed-source NVIDIA driver and the, expensive, Quadro series of cards.

2013-03-15 02:24:15 -0500 answered a question How to change keymap on native console?

The keymap is controlled by systemd. You can configure it in the /etc/vconsole.conf file.

2013-03-15 02:21:44 -0500 answered a question GPU does not reach higher performance levels

You should report this to the NVIDIA people. Fedora is unable to do anything about the NVIDIA driver.

Use the official web forum:

2013-03-15 02:18:29 -0500 answered a question Fedora 18 server version?

Only one version of Fedora exists.

The Gnome, KDE, or XFCE ISO images are the same version of Fedora, but are pre-configured with the corresponding packages installed. You may uninstall, or install, any package you like after installing Fedora from any of those images.

Fedora 18's installer has changed in that the package selection is in a different place. Refer to the official documentation if you want to see how.

Honestly, I would just install Fedora with the default set and just customize it after install.

2012-11-02 12:44:56 -0500 answered a question Updating Gnome-Shell to 3.6

Short answer: No

Long answer: Fedora follows an update policy that you can read on their wiki.

The maintainers for Gnome do not update Gnome in an existing Fedora version. Fedora 17 will always have Gnome 3.4.

There is nothing stopping you from downloading the Gnome 3.6 source code and compiling your own copy though.

I would recommend waiting for Fedora 18.

2012-07-10 15:25:03 -0500 answered a question Why systemd is listening on port 631?

You see systemd listening because systemd handles socket activation. Instead of the service listening systemd does the listening. For further information please read systemd documentation or blog articles from the systemd author.

2012-06-22 16:55:22 -0500 answered a question Is TRIM command working on LVM or not?

You can see if discard is enabled or not with the following command:

$ lsblk -D

Look for the line that has your drive, then look below that to the LVM name. If you see "0B" in both the DISC-GRAN and DISC-MAX columns then discard is not passing through to the LVM partition. If you see something besides 0B then discard is enabled. If you have further questions please post the output of the command.

It is a known bug. Please close this question.

Conky works the same on Fedora as any other Linux distribution. Use Google to find conkyrc scripts. Here is a link that I found via Google.

What file is evince-thumbnailer attempting to read? Once you find out you should file a bug report. This web site is not for bug reporting.

2012-05-17 12:41:49 -0500 commented answer missing while installing ffmpeg/mencoder

Please post the full yum output of what you are attempting to do. Not just the error message. Include the command you are running.

2012-05-17 12:41:16 -0500 commented answer missing while installing ffmpeg/mencoder

CPU architecture has nothing to do with this. You are trying to install an old ffmpeg-libs package. The current version is ffmpeg-libs-0.8.11-1.fc16.

2012-05-16 15:48:47 -0500 answered a question missing while installing ffmpeg/mencoder

You have out of date repository data. You need to have your network turned on and where you can reach the internet. Try cleaning yum up first, then do a "yum update" to fully update your system.

# yum clean all
# yum update

If you did not install the rpmfusion repository package, you need to do that before the two commands above.

# yum install
# yum install

If you are going to do any long term work with a modem I suggest you use "minicom" (yum install minicom) as it will make your life much easier.

2012-03-23 15:28:49 -0500 answered a question Cleaning out rootfs and VolGroup-lv_root

You can use a program called "baobab" to find the largest files in your rootfs and move them or delete them.

Configure your DNA sequence app to store its files on your home partition. You may need to create a symbolic link to your lv_home LVM volume so that your root file system keeps its free space if the app cannot be configured.

It's OK. You can just mark my answer as your choice and that's it.

Your wireless chip in your computer (Intel 6150) does not support 5ghz operation.

2012-03-20 10:07:16 -0500 answered a question Blu-Ray Playback

This question is not appropriate for this site.

A quick Google search will give you your answer. There is no legally licensed software available for Linux. You can try the "dump" software to copy the movie to your hard drive and play it, but any follow up questions should be asked on a different site.

2012-03-07 09:09:08 -0500 answered a question f15 -> f16 preupgrade failure(s)

Since you are halfway through the update you will need to use yum directly. Boot into a normal kernel (not preupgrade). Check that you have the Fedora 16 release package.

# rpm -q fedora-release

If this comes back on your system then you need to run the following commands:

# yum distro-sync
# package-cleanup --cleandupes

If you still have the Fedora 15 package you need to run these commands:

# yum --releasever=16 distro-sync
# package-cleanup --cleandupes

You will also need to install GRUB2 to your Master Boot Record to complete the upgrade.

2012-03-06 14:17:51 -0500 edited answer vsftpd can't visit /var and subdirectory

Please read the Fedora documentation on how to use "systemd" - the replacement service manager:

For example:

# systemctl enable vsftpd.service

This is the proper way to enable vsftpd on boot.

You may also find the documentation in your native language by switching the language with the drop-down box at the top left of the page.
