I'm having the same problem. It seems to only happen when I'm using Intellij, but I pretty much live in it 24/7.

2016-04-01 13:04:20 -0500 asked a question Upgrading to Kernel 4.4.6-200.fc22 Causes Boot Issues

I went from kernel 4.3.6-201.fc22 to 4.4.6-200.fc22 and now I get dracut-initqueue warnings about having no /dev/fedora/swap. Honestly it started with kernel 4.4*

How do I diagnose and remedy the issue?

@randomuser excuse me, when I say "patched" my referring to a distro provided update.

2015-12-02 13:11:51 -0500 asked a question SSSD Login Fails After Patch

I recently updated a Fedora 22 workstation and SSSD logins began to fail.

Logs look good until sss_send_pac fails. Oddly the principal user is getting the domain added twice. For example:

jgiotta\@magic.local@magic.local

I'm not sure what debuggin steps to take at this point. Joining the realm and performing ldapsearch commands are all successful.

Authentication is provided by an Active Directory system on a larger Windows-based network.

When I step up logging output in sssd.conf to level 10 I can review the krb5_child.log. I find the following failure in the log:

(Thu Dec 3 09:22:36 2015) [[sssd[krb5_child[2158]]]] [sss_send_pac] (0x0040): sss_pac_make_request failed [-1][2]

(Thu Dec 3 09:22:36 2015) [[sssd[krb5_child[2158]]]] [validate_tgt] (0x0040): sss_send_pac failed, group membership for user with principal [jgiotta\@magic.local@magic.local] might not be correct.

When this occurs I believe login fails, but terminal only says "System error" at login. At this moment, I'm essentially locked out of my profile and can only access via root.

2015-10-21 09:51:41 -0500 asked a question GUI Authentication Requiring a Different User Auth

A few weeks ago a colleague signed into my Fedora 22 workstation. He too is a group admin. Ever since then whenever I attempt to install or unlock the "Authentication Required" modal requires his password and not mine.

How can I fix this? It's highly annoying.

One thing I need to point out is that my workstation uses winbind for LDAP authentication. I'd love to switch to sssd, but I just haven't had time to rebuild my profile.

There was something definitely wrong with my package. I installed on another Fedora workstation and can see the /etc/sysconfig/docker being correct.

Patched docker-engine today and find out it overwrote my /etc/sysconfig/docker file wat?

2015-10-14 15:00:21 -0500 answered a question Custom Docker Bridge w/ Fedora 22

Found out what I'm doing wrong. I created a conf file under /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d to override directives and preserving the docker.service

# cd /etc/systemd/system/
# mkdir docker.service.d
# cd docker.service.d
# vi override.conf

Then add the following directives (the ExecStart twice to reset the first in /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service):

[Service]
EnvironmentFile=-/etc/sysconfig/docker
ExecStart=
ExecStart=/usr/bin/docker -d -H fd:// $DOCKER_OPTS

Then daemon-reload and start docker

# systemctl daemon-reload
# systemctl start docker

I guess I'm confused as to why this didn't work echo 'DOCKER_OPTS="-b=bridge0"' >> /etc/default/docker I tried to reproduce your example, but docker still established docker0

2015-10-13 19:14:04 -0500 asked a question Custom Docker Bridge w/ Fedora 22

I've been following the manual here, but I'm having trouble getting docker to use the new bridge.

I've added the following to /etc/default/docker and /etc/sysconfig/docker but as soon as I start the docker service it continues to use the docker0 bridge.

The established docker0 IP range blocks many internal IPs on my network. I simply want to configure it to use a 192.168.5.0/24 range.

$ netstat -r
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
192.168.5.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 bridge0

Editing google-chrome.repo was the answer. Thanks!

2015-07-10 09:13:57 -0500 asked a question Signing Key Incorrect

While trying to update Google Chrome on Fedora 22 I received the following error:

warning: /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/22/google-chrome/packages/google-chrome-stable-43.0.2357.132-1.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7fac5991: NOKEY Status code: 404 for https://dl-ssl.google.com/linx/linux_...

The problem is the pub URL is spelled incorrectly. It should be :https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

How can I correct this problem?

2015-03-27 12:43:07 -0500 marked best answer FQDN Not Working While Tunneling w/ vpnc

Not sure if it's a local issue or something configured wrong on the company VPN, but fully qualified domain names do not work when connected.

I have an address development-appsrv01.<fqdn> when connected with vpnc I can not access this address via HTTP. However, only development-appsrv01 will work forcing me to edit the address.</fqdn>

If I perform a nslookup on the FQDN it appears to return all the correct IPs.

Is my firewall configured incorrectly? Could vpnc be the issue?

2014-11-11 12:42:47 -0500 asked a question Why Did My Gnome Screencast Stop Working?

When I attempt to use the built in gnome screencast feature I get a 0 byte webm file. It was working at some point, but now no joy.

Why did it stop working? How can I debug the issue?

I did recently install audacity-freeworld, could be a gstreamer issue.

Did some digging for a command line execution of screencasting and here is my output:

Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
Pipeline is live and does not need PREROLL ...

No, I can't say it's locked up in Xorg. Running as single user mode does not cause lock ups.

2014-10-07 20:06:24 -0500 answered a question FQDN Not Working While Tunneling w/ vpnc

After further investigation, this blog entry identified the problem.

To fix, edit /etc/nsswitch.conf and remove the text “[NOTFOUND=return]“ as follows:

hosts:          files mdns4_minimal dns mdns4
#hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4

FQDN is now working.

I think I found the issue. http://andrewgdotcom.wordpress.com/2007/09/28/avahi-and-dot-local-addresses-on-ubuntu-gutsy/ I'll be testing as soon as I'm on a network I can VPN thru.

2014-10-06 15:24:52 -0500 commented answer Upgrade to Kernel 3.16+ Causes Hard Lockup or "Freezing"

Thank you for your input, but I feel like I need to know what the problem is before I report it.

Right now I have no clue why it locks up, I want to be thorough before attempting to submit a ticket.

2014-10-06 13:21:58 -0500 edited question Upgrade to Kernel 3.16+ Causes Hard Lockup or "Freezing"

I can not upgrade to a kernel above 3.15.10-201.fc20.x86_64 without experiencing random hardware "freezing".

I'd like to contribute my issue for tracking, but I don't know which logs I should be analyzing.

Any advise?

(on a side note, if I've patched bash, am I still exposed to shellshock?)

Update:

I mapped for SysRq key and even a System Request to kill all processes does not work. Also, Xorg.0.log(.old) does not show any errors or warnings.

More information: Got a few kernel panics and the following information I can ascertain:

CPU: 1 PID: 0 Comm: swapper/1 Tained: G                 C      3.16.3-200.fc20.x86

I am using the RTL8723AU driver (still considered staging) https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/53485/how-can-i-trackdown-my-wifi-driver-issues/

Where can I get the whole log? I have only a photo of the panic...
