2013-07-09 23:00:33 -0500 asked a question Gnome Terminal will not start Fedora 19

When I try to run the terminal application from gnome it hangs (then simply disappears).

When I use xterm (or the gnome-drop-down-terminal) and try and run gnome-terminal I see the following:

Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached

Why does the terminal need a proxy? What is it proxying too?

Don't see how this relates to fedora, you'll have to clarify your question.

Getting dropped into grub's command line is a scary thing but it truthfully it that bad. It means one of 3 things:

1) grub can't find your kernel

2) grub can't find your initial ram disk

3) grub can't find our root hard disk.

It would help to see your grub.conf file.

2012-09-13 22:36:24 -0500 answered a question Truecrypt requires admin priviledges

The error you are seeing is likely due t out not having a tty terminal,not your permissions.

Keep in mind that sudo is an assertion that your root not that your actually root. So my guess is that your sudoers file has a setting for not allowing tty sessions or that it requires one for you to use sudo and that that is the issue.

2012-09-13 22:26:42 -0500 answered a question partision problem

You use a command like fdisk or a graphical tool like gparted.

But like bohi.zazen said you'll have to be more specific than how to partition, if you want help with this subject.

2012-09-13 22:21:33 -0500 commented question wacom problem fedora 17 after update of kernel 3.5

I'd like to help but since not every one n the world has that display, to reproduce the problem well need more information than just a kernel number.

2012-09-13 22:18:24 -0500 answered a question Fedora 16 with Dell E docking station M6400

I have seen this happen but with F17 I work from a docking station all day so I feel the pain when you disconnect and reconnect and your display locks up.

Usually a <ctrl> + <alt> + <backspace> solves the problem by restarting the display server.

I have noticed that with later updates to F17 this has gotten better and gone away for me. Might want to upgrade when 18 comes out I hear Gnome 3.5 (or whatever) is going to be sweet.

2012-09-13 22:09:47 -0500 commented answer Maven: lots of dependencies?

I can't up vote this or I would, that seems to be a bug or they are trying to give out some extras. Jetty and plex are surely not needed.

2012-09-13 21:52:28 -0500 answered a question genkey create cert error

Not sure what documentation your following so I'll just write down the instructions. I'd look at Apache's site for the docs on mod_ssl, there is a good 'how to' there.

Now for the good stuff.

'Google openssl' its your new best friend and secrete enemy. The docs suck but if you know, kinda what your looking for you can make it work, be sure to look at the examples.

So the hard part of setting this up is the PKI certificates. Its 3 steps:

1) generate a key # openssl genrsa -des3 2048

2) create cert request # openssl x509 -req -out cert.csr ΔΔ see openssl example this is probably wrong they have one for a self signed cert, but this is close.

3) sign certificate This is normally done by our ca look at verisign or thawt. The will give similar instructions.
