From the Fedora web site, you will need around 10 GB disk space during install. You will probably want more, though, if you are going to have large packages (like LaTeX, games, etc...). 20~30 GB won't hurt and should be enough for most users.

That's how sudo works. You trust the user and the user's actions are logged. If you want to enter the root password, then you want to use the su command as follows:- su -c yum install <package> Password: Once the command above finishes, you're returned to your normal user's prompt.

Your permissions issue is not a file permissions issue but SELinux disallowing the sendmail executable from accessing files on the filesystem in a specific location. Your best friend for dealing with these is to use the SELinux troubleshooter GUI. $ sealert -b     You'll then want to follow the advice to add the necessary contexts to your ...

I think minimum is 8-10 Gb, because there is lot of updates after installation.

For fedora, 20 is very stable. I've been using it for many months. Enough time has gone by that patches have stabilized it nicely. Just remember Fedora is a test bed for new technologies for Redhat.

You should remove the ldap conf from ssh conf files /etc/ssh_config and /etc/sshd_config . Check both files for:- PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt yes and change it to:- PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt no And of-course don't forget to restart your services:- service sshd restart

I have Fedora 19 installed. It has /etc/sysctl.conf and /etc/sysctl.d. $ cat /etc/sysctl.conf # System default settings live in /usr/lib/sysctl.d/00-system.conf. # To override those settings, enter new settings here, or in an /etc/sysctl.d/<name>.conf file # # For more information, see sysctl.conf(5) and sysctl.d(5).

It is extremely improbable that this represents a security breach. A badly-implemented malware would use a dot file for a modicum of stealth. A better-implemented malware would hide itself by patching the kernel so that no file would ever appear. The mundane explanation is that you accidentally pasted a line containing the character > followed by this ...

I'm fairly certain there aren't any distro builds of 4.6 for Fedora 20 (or 19, or 18, or 17). I am working on a project that I do not have permission to update to be comparable with 4.8 and need to be able to install gcc 4.6.3. If this is a C project, there's no difference between what 4.6 will compile and what 4.8 will compile unless you stipulate ...

try removing the current version then re-install the wanted version: yum remove gcc yum install gcc-4.6.3 Note: you may keep both the current version and 4.6.3 version if you wish, because the binaries for them would be different: /usr/bin/gcc-4.8 and /usr/bin/gcc-4.6.3 if yum did not work you have to use make: first install gcc-4.6.3.tar.gzfrom ...

You could always try to install the rpm from the later fedora versions. You can find them on rpmfind.net. Simply download the rpm matching your VM architecture and install using yum yum localinstall emacs-24.3-18.fc21.x86_64.rpm I'm not sure if you'll have the correct dependencies resolved. If so, you probably would have trouble compiling from source ...

With Fedora 17+, you can install emacs 24 simply: sudo yum install emacs You can search a package before install: yum search emacs Update Refer to this link, it seems that emacs 24.3 is not include in Fedora 17 repository. In this case, I think you should install emacs from source to get the newer version.

I found the solution to my problem here. The workaround: I increased the memory used to 1024M with these instructions. I set the "Maximum files opened for read/write" to a 101. I ran the application from the command line with this command: sudo bash -c 'ulimit -n 8192; sudo -u username ./azureus'

You will need to modify the vuze shell script. This shell script is actually a link to a file called azureus, vuze's previous name. Within this script change the line JAVA_ARGS="-Xmx128m" to JAVA_ARGS="-Xmx256m", for example if you want to increase the memory to 256MB. Then restart vuze

In addition to the patches listed here you need to patch link.c from vmhgfs.tar. 184a185 > #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE <= KERNEL_VERSION(3, 14, 99) 187a189,194 > #else > LOG(6, (KERN_DEBUG "VMware hgfs: HgfsReadlink: calling " > "readlink_copy\n")); > error = readlink_copy(buffer, buflen, fileName); > ...

Typically I would expect phpMyAdmin to request a MySQL username and password. The MySQL root user can (and should) have a different password from the normal root password. You did secure your MySQL install with a password, right?


1

As the other answerers said, this is the default behavior. If you really want to enter the root password instead of the user's password, you can add the line Defaults rootpw to your /etc/sudoers file (use the visudo command, do not edit the sudoers file by any other means). The usual disclaimer: The defaults chosen for sudo are the way they are for a ...

Well it is how it's done. You will grant the permission to users of group wheel to perform administration duties. In short you grant them root access. And this is not distro specific - in all Linux distributions and even BSDs you will do the same. If you're worried about compromising security you could remove the user from sudoers table and go with root. ...

After I shrunk the volume in Windows by a disappointing amount, the option to shrink the volume in the Fedora 20 installer became available allowing me to shrink it down by much more. Shrink the volume in Windows 1. Boot into Windows 2. Go to "Disk Management"     a. Right click "Computer" from the desktop or Start Menu ...
