2018-01-25 02:54:37 -0500 Perguntou mariadb wont start after dnf update

i have a mariadb for owncloud installed on a F26 server. After yesterdays dnf update mariadb wont start with following log:

mariadb.service: Failed with result 'protocol'. Database MariaDB is probably initialized in /var/lib/mysql already, nothing is done.

Jan 25 09:28:27 systemd[1]: Starting MariaDB 10.1 database server...

Jan 25 09:28:28 systemd[1]: mariadb.service: Unit entered failed state.
Jan 25 09:28:28 systemd[1]: mariadb.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

From the error messages it looks exactly like but that bug is for F27 only.

I tried backing up /var/lib/mysql and emptying it => same error

I tried changing SELinux, as suggested in the comments.=> same error

I tried reverting the update with dnf => this fails because it couldn't find a package?!

No package GeoIP-GeoLite-data-0:2017.10-1.fc26.noarch available.
Error: An operation cannot be undone

I tried reinstalling mariadb => same error

I'm out of ideas. Anybody has an hint how to get it running again?

2018-01-09 14:23:04 -0500 Marcada como a melhor resposta How do I install the Cinnamon Desktop on Fedora Workstation?

I set up my laptop with f25 64-bit default Workstation. Now I want to install the Cinnamon desktop group, which fails with:

Environment 'Cinnamon Desktop' is already installed, skipping.

But despite that message, it is not selectable in GDM. And, when i try to remove it with:

sudo dnf group remove cinnamon-desktop-environment
Last metadata expiration check: 0:13:30 ago on Sat Jan 14 18:40:58 2017. 
Dependencies resolved.
Error: The operation would result in removing the following protected packages: dnf, systemd-udev, systemd.

Is there a possibility to resolve the issue and install Cinnamon without using the Cinnamon Spin on Fedora 25? If not - would it be possible to install from the Spin?

Hi, sry for delay i tried today.

> sudo localectl set-locale LC_ALL=de_DE.UTF-8
Failed to issue method call: Invalid Locale data.

seems to fail to set this specific variable. I'm pretty sure that's the correct value.. edit: after a locale -a i got de_DE.utf8 as a possibility, but that string fails with the same message.

2017-12-21 02:54:22 -0500 Pergunta comentada I have a laptop running fedora 27, whenever I close it I have to hard restart it otherwise the screen just stays black

you could try to <ctrl>+<alt>+<f6> (depending on your laptop maybe + <fn> Key) to switch to console and <ctrl>+<alt>+<f1> (+<fn>) to switch back to graphical frontend. Not a solution, but it helped me as a workaround until driver was fixed.

To find the cause of that issue you should look in your log file with

journalctl -xe

if and when you get an event "lid closed" or "target: Sleep" from systemd. And look for errors or warnings around that event.

2017-12-20 08:27:38 -0500 Resposta comentada English for UI - local regional settings for date, sorting etc.

yes, that would be my goal (VT + X11).
I use german keyboard layout.

2017-12-20 03:13:14 -0500 Perguntou English for UI - local regional settings for date, sorting etc.


i'm trying to achive the following setup:

  1. english as a language setting for the whole UI.
  2. german for all other locale settings like Date format, week start, currency, number.

I set this in KDE settings, but all formats are apparently en_US. How and where would i persistently set this settings? Here's my locale output:

 > locale

heres the /etc/locale.conf ...


Anybody has an hint, why actual local settings vary from /etc/locale.conf

Hi, i'm using F26 with KDE 5.10. And i use two displays at work. A newly openend window is always openend overlapping both displays.

I already defined actions for some programs to open on display 1 or 2, with an initial position. But i'm asking myself if i can set a default for all new windows.

no, i have another issue ;-) You could try looking if one of the python versions is coming from a repo. And than disable that repo - do the upgrade - and enable it again.

thanks florian, then i will try a "migration" to virtualbox. If you convert your comment to answer it can mark it correct.

ok, i will check that the next time, but i can get loads like now: 1,00 1,17 1,49 when just webbrowsing in fedora and windows machine idling with office. And no svchost using cpu time in the windows task manager.

thanks and yes that's what i meant running both at the same time. Does it have a negative effect to have both installed at the same time?

Hi, i'm facing some performance issues with a KVM/QEMU Setup with Windows 7 guest. When Win7 is idling at 6% kvm takes in average 120% load. So i was wondering to give Virtualbox a try. Is it possible/sensible to do that in parallel?

Hi Sergiomb, i'm not sure if i understand you entirely. ATM i do not have lpf- installed. Just:

Does this mean it is an EULA issue and i need to install it via lpf?

sorry, for late reply, just removed spotify from negativo repo and installed spotify-client from unitedRpms. Same behaviour no Copy URI here. Everything else is in the menu.. Used spotify-reset and started again - still no joy.

[edit: converted to answer, but only found a workaround for copying exactly one URI via the "..." Menu -> Share -> URI

still missing one from the context menu. ]

Hi, anyone an idea on this. I'm using spotify from negativo17 repository. Since a few days "Copy URI" is not available in any context menu anymore. According to spotify support site it should still be there.

Anybody here with the same issue?

i have a Windows7 KVM running on my F25 laptop. I use ethernet, wifi and LTE in Linux to provide NATed Network for the VM. For some reasons, most often after waking up the laptop from sleep, the LTE Card is gone in Linux and seems to be redirected to the VM.

Is there any way to prevent KVM/QEMU from redirecting a specific device, only? So LTE Card never redirect, USB thumb drive etc. always redirect.

to answer my own question and later raise a new one ;-) The issue seems to be related to a virtual machine running in KVM, that is getting the LTE Cards USB redirected. I noticed, that when i shut down this VM than the LTE Card appears again.
