What ldd `which mapiprofile` | grep libsamba and rpm -qf `which mapiprofile` say?

2015-08-31 06:36:03 -0500 commented answer error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

what happens if you add -lgfortran to the g++ ... link line? Just copy the whole line into the terminal, add -lgfortran at the end, and execute such modified line.

2015-08-31 06:14:00 -0500 answered a question error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

Check which versions of symbols are available for your gfortran:

strings /usr/lib64/ | grep "GFORTRAN_1"

and verify which version of g++/gfortran you are actually using:

g++ --version
gfortran --version
rpm -qf /usr/lib64/

If there is a mismatch, you will probably need to recompile /home/navds/LocInstall/HEP/PYTHIA6/pythia6428/ with gfortran-5.1.1. Otherwise try to add -lgfortran to the link line.

2015-04-14 09:06:39 -0500 answered a question How to configure networking without "ifconfig" or "ip"

Please search Google for answers first. You can print the network settings by inspecting the container ID (CID):

docker run -i -t fedora:latest /bin/bash
# then from a new terminal
docker ps
CID=`docker ps | grep fedora:latest | cut -d' ' -f1`
echo ${CID}
docker inspect ${CID}

Stackoverflow is usually a good source of information: and the official docker docs

/etc/profile scripts are automatically loaded at login, no need to include this in ~/.bashrc.

2014-12-14 23:51:33 -0500 commented answer mpirun: command not found...

su -c "yum -y install openmpi"; source /etc/profile.d/ . After that the module command (it's a shell function, or alias depending on your shell) will become available.

2014-10-07 07:46:04 -0500 edited answer Is there any software for fedora like Internet download manager in windows ?

I haven't seen such a download manger yet. However Aria2 is the best download manager for linux I've ever seen. If you also like to download videos from the inernet, I recommend firefox with flashgot addon (change the default flashget video downloader to aria2).

Other options are:




which can be simply installed by, e.g.:

yum install wget

if you have rpmfusion installed.

You need to create /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf. Don't skip the steps - /var/www/svn (not /var/svn) is created in step 5.

2014-10-07 07:26:02 -0500 answered a question how to install mediahuman on fedora 20

I would try to unpack the deb package. As an unprivileged user, assuming 64-bit Fedora:

cd /tmp
mkdir YouTubeToMP3
cd YouTubeToMP3
ar vx YouTubeToMP3.amd64.deb
tar -xzvf data.tar.gz

Start the application with:


If it works, repeat the installation process under your home directory ($HOME).

2014-10-07 07:04:16 -0500 commented question Yum - Cannot retrieve metalink for repository error

@FranciscoD_ - this kind of error messages should be simply improved in yum. It does not make sense to keep answering the same question over and over again - the source of the problem must be fixed. I started a discussion about this drawback of yum (lousy error messages) some time ago - but the thread died.

If you are familiar with the shell just reading the LFS book will be much faster than watching any videos. The actual building of LFS can take a couple of days.
