2017-08-07 03:07:46 -0500 Perguntou Issue with custom build anaconda package when creating a live CD


I am trying to build a custom live CD (livecd-creator) based on Fedora 26 workstation kickstart file. In doing so, I am patching anaconda to have a different name than Fedora in the installation wizard. The rpm with this patch is built locally and maintained in a local rpm repository for livecd-creator to pick when creating the live cd.

From the livecd-creator logs I can see that the custom built rpms (anaconda-*) are picked up. However when I try to boot the newly created iso, after selecting "Try or install..." the screen goes blank (this works find with Fedora 26 live cd). I suspect this is caused by the custom built anaconda and I am not sure what has gone wrong.

On a different note, I booted Fedora 26 live cd and upgraded anaconda-* rpms with my custom built rpms. Then I launched the "Install to hard disk" wizard, but I couldn't see my patched changes.

Any help with this regard is highly appreciated.

Hi all,

Will the LXDE Spin for Fedora 24 be available alone with the Fedora 24 release or will it take some time to be available after the Fedora 24 release?

2015-10-11 22:36:59 -0500 Perguntou Cannot adjust screen brightness in Lenovo T530 in Fedora 23

I am using ThinkPad Lenovo T530 laptop and I am on Fedora 23 beta. I cannot adjust my screen brightness with the shortcut keys. I tried several options like appending acpi_backlight=vendor to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX but didn't work. Automatic brightness adjustment that comes with GNOME 3.18 is also not working (I am not sure whether my laptop has a light sensor).

Any help to get this fixed is highly appreciated, the brightness is so high that it hurts eyes when working for hours.

2012-05-26 22:02:51 -0500 Perguntou track dynamic ips

I have a LAN with a several windows machines and a f16 box. IPs for windows machines are dynamically allocated and they have their own host names. I want to access a particular windows machine from my f16 box. I tried with the host name (ex ping <hostname>) but it doesn't work. ping works with the ip but since the ip changes (after a reboot of the windows machine) it is hard to access through ip.

What I want is to ping to that particular windows machine any time (unknowing what it's ip at the moment is)

I am trying to build sugar as instruction here. When I issue "./sugar-jhbuild update" I get the following error. My system is fedora 16 (64 bit).

./sugar-jhbuild update

    instance = BundleModule.parse_from_xml(node, config, uri, repositories, default_repo)

This works fine in another machine with fedora 16 (64 bit). I'm unable to figure the error.

The files and folder structure is here

Any help is highly appreciated.
