2018-03-08 23:25:05 -0600 answered a question Cut command is not working as expected.

You have to specify a delimiter for the field separation. The default delimiter is Tab and from man cut.

-f, --fields=LIST
select  only  these  fields;   also  print any line that contains no delimiter character, unless the -s option is specified

So, as your sample.txt does not include a Tab the whole line is printed. If you add -s to your command, nothing would be printed.

To get the second field of your sample.txt as it is, use the command as follows.

cut -d ' ' -f 2 sample.txt

But I am still wondering why you would expect dog to be printed.

To use the default delimiter Tab you would have to generate the file as follows to add Tab delimiters between the words.

echo -e 'The\tquick\tbrown;\tfox\tjumps\tover\tthe\tlazy\tdog' > sample.txt
2018-03-01 11:54:27 -0600 commented question nmap question: who has the port open?

Well, it is already there rn6.foo.local (192.168.255.10). If you just want to have the IP address returned, just add the -n option to nmap: nmap -n -p 6566 192.168.255.0/24.

2018-02-25 11:07:02 -0600 commented question Microcode intel

It looks like you already have installed the latest revision 0x22 for your CPU which is shipped in the 20171117 package. There is a newer release 20180108, but that one is considered to cause problems. You should open a second question concerning your actual problem as this seems to be a x-y-problem, since you said something about problems with gnome.

2018-02-25 04:26:47 -0600 commented question Microcode intel

According to here the dd method is outdated and does not work anymore. There are also the valid options described. Which CPU do you want to upgrade? Check in /proc/cpuinfo. AFAIK the latest available microcode does introduce stability issues and it is not advised to install that one. In my case microcode_ctl-2.1-20.fc26 was reported by the spectre-meltdown-checker having stability issues.

2018-02-24 09:22:30 -0600 answered a question dnf output problem on group-installing 'compiz' in live user!

Since you are on a LIve USB environment, the root filesystem is read-only. Trying to install things on the other hand needs modifications on the root filesystem.

There are ways to add some persistent storage to a Live USB environment, but I have never tested that. You can read through here.
