you should use LVM

2013-03-02 10:33:00 -0500 answered a question Boot in Terminal Mode

you can edit the kerenl line in grub (on boot) and add 1 to the end of it. this will boot you into a single user mode

2013-02-17 10:05:37 -0500 commented question I Disabled All Startup Programs

one quick and ugly way i to recreate your home folder from scratch. login as root and move you home folder to a new place, then recreate the folder with the appropriated permission and try to login back

2013-02-14 15:58:46 -0500 answered a question KVM: blank VM (without OS)

you can use the define option to import a VM xml file let say you have a xml file like this (copy 'n' pase to XML file)

<domain type='kvm'>
    <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-0.12'>hvm</type>
    <boot dev='hd'/>
  <clock offset='utc'/>
    <disk type='block' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
      <source dev='/dev/vg-storage/tempvm'/>
      <target dev='hda' bus='ide'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' unit='0'/>
    <controller type='ide' index='0'>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x01' function='0x1'/>
    <memballoon model='virtio'>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x04' function='0x0'/>

then run on the shell

virsh define filename.xml

then you can edit/manage the machine with 'Virtual Machine Manager'

the other way is to use virt-install with the --import switch i think

2013-02-08 07:42:21 -0500 commented answer Use yum via socks 4/5 proxy

when you set the http_proxy variable, yum will check it when running, in the above example you set your machine port 8080 as the proxy

2013-02-05 13:41:00 -0500 answered a question Use yum via socks 4/5 proxy

you can try this for now,

ssh -D8080 user@hostname

then on another terminal setup the http_proxy variable

export http_proxy=

then run yum from the same terminal window

2012-04-16 14:39:23 -0500 answered a question Mount NTFS partition on-demand without password?

Try this in your fstab file

/dev/sda9 /mnt/shared ntfs rw,noatime,noauto,users 0 0

users Allow every user to mount and unmount the filesystem. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line users,exec,dev,suid).

2012-04-10 07:58:54 -0500 answered a question How do I repair my file system on Fedora Core 5?

try to mount the file-system as read-only with

and backup your content, by copying it to another media

2012-03-18 07:08:57 -0500 answered a question Using Programmer From Fedora

You will have a better luck using a virtual machine for this job instead of WINE. I had lock with cheap programmers that simulate AVR programmers, and used AVRDUDE from fedora repos.

where is this setting stored ? gdm remember the last used desktop environment, how ? i like to change it from the command line because i'm using autologin and i don't like to logout just for this.

2012-01-29 04:39:31 -0500 commented answer Internal mic not working, thinkpad t520 (F16 x64)

I tried this fix - and it's working now, but the mic very noise, so far i didn't reboot my system, so i don't know if the file will revert back to it's original state.
