To have a device mounted on startup, you need to edit /etc/fstab as root. The format for /etc/fstab is as follows: # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> <file system> is the device or remote filesystem you want to mount. <mount point> is where you would like your device ...

Don't bother/waste your time with any upgrade path - especially from that far back. It sounds like you don't have much invested in it yet (loading lots of apps, etc). Do a fresh install. Download the 23 live image and go from there. I had Fedora 9 on my box at home for a long time before I finally upgraded. It's wasn't smart to wait that long, but it was ...

You can use your package manager to find out which package clang-tidy provides. For example on Fedora/CentOS: dnf whatprovides '*/clang*tidy*' On Debian/Ubuntu you can use an analogous apt-file search command. However, on Fedora 23 clang-tidy just isn't packaged. No match is found. There is even an open bug report: Missing clang-query and clang-tidy ...

The domain .local is reserved for use by hosts that can be auto-discovered by the mdns protocol (broadcasts on the local network). You might get it working by installing and running avahi, or more simply by removing the mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] part from your nsswitch.conf. To test an address use eg getent hosts mywebserver.mydomain.local.

The package is only available as separate packages. For example, from the debian contents we can see one goodie is xfce4-mailwatch-plugin. A search with sudo dnf search xfce4-mailwatch-plugin will find that package. For a more general search just use sudo dnf search xfce or use glob patterns like '*xfce*mail*'. You don't need sudo to search but it ...

Try: # nmcli con add con-name "static-ens32" ifname ens32 type ethernet ip4 xxx.xxx.120.44/24 gw4 xxx.xxx.120.1 # nmcli con mod "static-ens32" ipv4.dns "xxx.xxx.120.1,8.8.8.8" # nmcli con up "static-ens32" iface ens32 Next, find the other connections and delete them. For example: # nmcli con show NAME UUID TYPE DEVICE ...

The messages show that you have a conflict between a 32-bit package and a 64-bit package. That could have happened as a result of mixing repositories from different places (there's not enough information in the question to clarify this). However, you may be able to remove the 32-bit package without disturbing anything that you actually need. Rather than ...

You should checkout this post on the Fedora form. https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/35074/restore-fedora-official-repository-files/ In places of the URL where you see 20 I would replace with 24.

I found this answer to a duplicate question on ServerFault titled: yum equivalent of “apt-get purge" that provides the only method I've seen that can do what apt-get purge <pkg> does on Ubuntu/Debian. for package in package1 package2 package3 do echo "removing config files for $package" for file in $(rpm -q --configfiles $package) do echo " ...

Just so you know before you do anything take a full backup if you can or at least your root drive. Messing with LVM is all good until there is a mistake then its hard to get stuff back. Now you will want to do this on a live CD as the root partition needs to be unmounted and then from a terminal in the live session we will do the following. Make sure that ...

I found the answer. I updated ~/.config/monitors.xml and looked for VGA1 which is my TV and set up correct width and height (1408x792) and after a restart the configuration was applied successfully.

You cannot recover this directory or its contents unless you have a backup. However, unless you have made modifications to the files in that directory (which are your Yum repository specifications), you should be able to retreive the files as they were from another Fedora system of the same version. If there were custom modifications or additional files ...

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2316240 Aswer is here. Problem is that somehow a generic touchpad is detected even though a different touchpad is actually in use. All the commands I tried went to the generic touchpad which doesn't actually exist, so that's why nothings worked. Tried the fix and now it's all good.

Fedora 20 is EOL for almost a year and the mirrors providing updates are not working anymore. Update to some supported version, such as Fedora 23 or 24 (just released).

If you're using GNOME, or have some GNOME tools installed, you can use gnome-screenshot with the --delay=# option. The delay is in seconds, and gives you that many seconds to open the "Project" menu so that it is open when the screencap actually happens. I also recommend the --window option to keep clutter in the screenshot to a minimum.

I followed these instructions from It's F.O.S.S. to use bcdedit in an admin-priveledged command prompt, but with a slightly different path since it was Fedora instead of Ubuntu: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\fedora\grubx64.efi When I next rebooted I got to GRUB, which allowed me to boot into either Fedora or Windows.

Just install Oracle JDK since the Fedora can't distribute closed source JavaFX within OpenJDK.

I've never used fedora, so I'm not sure, but I would be really surprised if they supported upgrades from 14 to 22 in one step. Most linux distributions (I know of) only support upgrading from one major version to the next. Even if you could find all those versions, upgrading 14->15->16->17->18->19->20->21->22 would take a long time, and probably involving ...

I think that fedora 14 repos are offline (end of support reached), you should really consider downloading a fedora 22 iso and either do a fresh install or upgrade using that image. Anyway if you want to try to upgrade here is the command: $ sudo yum install fedora-upgrade $ sudo fedora-upgrade EDIT: dnf will not work in fedora 14 (it was introduced ...

The full strace in your pastebin link shows that sudo is trying to open libnss-sss.so.2: open("/lib64/libnss_sss.so.2", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 8 That's an NSS module for SSSD - System Security Services Daemon, which manages access to various remote authentication services. Check that the SSSD is installed and running. If it is, then try following the ...
