2016-05-13 13:48:43 -0500 answered a question Grub wont pick up new kernels (was: Can't update kernel)

Can you post a screenshot of your grub boot screen. I have seen this happen when the grub.cfg file as all the kernels listed but they may be out of order and booting off of an older kernel instead of the latest one. So if possible post a screenshot of your grub boot screen.

2016-05-13 13:21:46 -0500 answered a question From the CLI how to list the groups to which I belong?

The command groups will list the groups to which you belong and usermod -G <group> <userid> will allow you to add additional groups to a userid.

2016-05-13 06:32:02 -0500 answered a question why no lsuser/lsgroup command

On Linux the lslogins <userid> command should give you the same details as lsuser. As for lsgroup I do not think there is an equivalent command. But unless you have an huge number of users lslogins and cat /etc/group should be sufficient.

lslogins Example

[root@vmsrv01 ~]# lslogins pwills Username: pwills UID: 500 Gecos field: Pierre Wills Home directory: /home/pwills Shell: /bin/bash No login: no Password is locked: no Password no required: no Login by password disabled: no Primary group: pierre GID: 500 Last login: May05/09:10 Last terminal: pts/0 Last hostname: Hushed: no Password changed: 2015-May08 Selinux context: unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 enter code here

2016-05-11 21:46:15 -0500 answered a question installation destination doesnt show my hard drive

With out more detail is hard to troubleshoot this issue. From the info you have provided it sounds like you may have created some type of RAID when you installed the windows OS and Fedora may not be able to read that RAID configuration. If you answer the questions below I may be able help a little more.

Are you using an RAID card if yes what RAID level is setup?

What type of motherboard are you using?

Can you provide a screenshot of your install screen?

2016-05-11 21:46:13 -0500 answered a question Optimizing mount options for additional HDD

My recommendation i to use your favorite media play and have it scan the drive for your media and store it in its database. That way the album art will be stored in the application and you will not have to worry about the thumbnails in the folders.

There is really no difference between /media /mnt and so forth they are all mount points.

As for the thumbnails it more depends on your folder structure. Thumbnails take a while to load when you have hundreds of them in a directory. I am not sure what your folder layout is but most likely it is all the albums in one directory. If that is the case any OS would take a while to load the thumbnail data.

Are there any gains available by mounting the HDD into /media or /run/media? No at all

What part do symlinks play in all of this, if any? Symlinks will not speed up the loading of the thumbnails

What are mask permissions? The mask are the fault permission a file gets when it is created and that will not help in your case that is more so related to security
