2018-02-23 16:46:01 -0500 asked a question Why Fedora

Getting answers to Fedora problems is a real pain in the rear end. Fedora breaks more packages than it fixes. Web searches bring up vast amounts of help for Ubuntu/Debian. Little to none for Fedora.

2018-02-19 20:14:13 -0500 asked a question Web cam disables HDMI

When I execute sh -c "echo 'blacklist uvcvideo' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf" it disables the HDMI output. This is a laptop. BIOS does not have the option to disable the webcam or microphone. Does anyone know how to disable the webcam and maybe the microphone with out affecting the HDMI output in Fedora 27? Thank you.

I'm using Fedora 27 and trying to learn scripting, so I thought I'd try a "simple' login scrip for openvpn.

I need to pass the sudo password, Auth Username, and Auth Password. These credentials would be in the script itself. Security principles are not important since this is a learning exercise. The simple format would look like:

sudo openvpn xx.ovpn
[sudo] password for user:
Enter Auth Username:
Enter Auth Password:

I've found several scripts online, but none work. Am I trying to do something that can't be done? Thanks for any help.

2018-02-12 15:54:17 -0500 commented question Media Player

As is all too common, people fail to read or listen. As you can clearly see in my post that I've spent hours trying to get VLC to work properly. I did get a solution to rebuild the kernel for VB. Just exactly what were your trying to contribute? I'll won't waste time blaming politicians as I know that will go no where. What I have been looking for are solutions, and unfortunately I won't find them here.

2018-02-12 12:50:17 -0500 asked a question Media Player

Is there a media player that works for Fedora 27 that will play DVDs, *.mkv, *.mp4, and etc? Like VLC says it will but doesn't. I've spent hours looking for information to get VLC to play DVDs I own to no avail.

It seems pointless to use a "bleeding edge" OS like Fedora if I can play simple media files. Inaddition to it breaks VirtualBox every kernel update.
