# /dev/sda6 is the linux ROOT (/) which is to be mounted (the ROOT partition)
sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt ; # replace /dev/sda6 with your linux root partition say /dev/sda5

sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev &&
sudo mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts &&

Yum will install next package, no need to add wait; you can combine pkg1 pk2 as yum -y install pkg1 pkg2 pkg3 as well.

2014-07-19 21:33:44 -0500 answered a question downgrade gnome 3.12 to gnome 3.10

rhughes repo, warned already that downgrade will be troublesome, anyhow,

This is what i'd do as per my reason: to remove the conflicting downgradable packages and reinstall them after we've fully downgraded other 3.12 packages. But if we stop/interrupt in between distro-sync, we won't have gdm, so we need to manually install gdm from commandline.

rpm -e epiphany-runtime NetworkManager-bluetooth NetworkManager-wwan NetworkManager-adsl gdm gdm-libs --nodeps
yum distro-sync
yum install epiphany-runtime gdm gdm-libs NetworkManager*
2013-11-09 19:01:42 -0500 answered a question Double entries in Nautilus (Files) sidebar for samba shares

fstab shows local Mounted partitions, it would be unexpected if a locally mounted network share is not shown in drives. If you remove the fstab entry it will not show in the drives section. I guess files stores network authentication for future reuse. try commenting the fstab entry and only network will show the share. Just because a network share is mounted locally should it not be visible to users on network? What about other users or the users who forget that the share is locally mounted? I think files behavior is prefectly acceptable.

2013-10-23 01:13:52 -0500 answered a question Cannot boot from CD/DVD drive

can you boot other bootable cds from your drive? if you drive has gone bad then make a live usb (windows 7 bootable usb creator which is a windows software - google it)

installing from usb is much faster.

**better use ffmpeg 2 than ffmpeg-compat unless really needed

rpm -ql ffmpeg-devel /usr/include/ffmpeg /usr/include/ffmpeg/libavcodec /usr/include/ffmpeg/libavcodec/avcodec.h

try with a different hard disk, seems your disk or the connectors (power or sata) has problem.

2013-09-21 07:53:43 -0500 answered a question Google-chrome installation error

Fedora 15 is way too old, try fedora 19 which is smoother and performs much better than fedora 15. Unless you are stuck with f15.

2013-09-21 07:50:52 -0500 answered a question "files" folder force close on Fedora 19 GNOME 3.8

can you post the steps, that could help identify the problem.

also try running "nautilus" from a terminal emulator (gnome-terminal) and see what error messages are shown when nautilus crashes.

2012-11-24 11:15:57 -0500 answered a question How to set screen inactivity at never.

https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/517/caffeine/

also you can use smplayer to stop the suspend/screen switch off by using smplayer

  1. install smplayer (su -c "yum install smplayer"; #needs rpmfusion repo)
  2. open a video file with smplayer
  3. click on pause
  4. minimize smplayer, and it will block the screen shutoff/suspend, as long as smplayer is running with the video is playing or paused.
