This worked for me. Add the following to your kernel parameter. selinux=1 enforcing=0 This sets the SELinux enforcement mode from strict to permissive. This is a temporary solution until I figure out what is going on, or until an update fixes the problem. Hope it helps.

PackageKit is being run by GNOME Software. It's not doing automatic updates, but it is downloading them so they're ready. There is work on making this be smarter, including not doing it over bandwidth-constrained connections, but it hasn't landed yet. In the meantime, you can disable this by running: dconf write /org/gnome/software/download-updates false ...

Your GUI explorer is using information from the avahi daemon which is listening for services on the local network. You can do the same from the cli with avahi-browse -rat

One of the questions you ask is: "Is there a program that provides an x11 xserver inside a window?" It sounds like Xnest might answer that question. Xnest is "A nested X server that runs as an X application". I know that I've used it in the past to show me unusual window managers that I had compiled from source, and didn't want to have crash my whole ...

At the risk of reading the linked article author's mind, I think that the following instructions are broken in a few ways: $ su password: # cd /usr/local # wget http://apache.claz.org/hadoop/common/hadoop-2.4.1/ hadoop-2.4.1.tar.gz # tar xzf hadoop-2.4.1.tar.gz # mv hadoop-2.4.1/* to hadoop/ # exit They start off as functioning commands, but the ...

This isn't via bash, but the GNOME Shell extension Auto Move Windows lets you define rules so that programs are automatically opened on predefined workspaces. If that doesn't do you what you need, you could consider extending the extension (source here; it's in Javascript) to better fit your specific need.

To set up networking for your chrooted session you need to copy the DNS configuration into the chroot environment : cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/etc/resolv.conf Or ln -s /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/etc/resolv.conf

The solution I used was Change default.target to multi-user.target (Was graphical.) setenforce 0 systemctl isolate graphical

Answering my own question: I was able to solve the problem by restoring the configuration of my /etc/proftpd.conf to AuthOrder mod_auth_pam.c* mod_auth_unix.c SELinux was configured by setting the following flags: setsebool ftpd_full_access 1 setsebool ftp_home_dir 1 Apparently the problem was related with mod_auth_unix.c which is forbidden by SELinux ...

There wouldn't be any overwrite issues with rm but whatever the scenario, if you abort during the process, it will blindly stop where it was when it got interrupted. There is unfortunately no way of knowing where it stopped unless you previously made a listing of what should be removed.

The java program and the javac alternatives are controlled independently of one another. Take a look at at what alternative you have set for javac. # update-alternatives --config javac There are 2 programs which provide 'javac'.

You can use the other command line options of systemd-analyze to get a better overview about what delays your boot. Your command showed that most of the time is eaten up by userspace processes. Therefore I recommend investigating this further. Take a look at systemd-analyze blame and systemd-analyze plot The first one will give you a per process list ...

This is caused by a bug in the SELinux policy. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1331668 — as of May 2, 2016, there is an update in testing which should resolve the issue. In the meantime, booting with enforcing=0 will work around the problem.

First, let me warn you that upgrading any OS in place has the potential to fail and then cause problems resulting from that failure. Having said that, Fedora 24 is still not yet released, so the latest official release of Fedora is Fedora 23. Instructions for that upgrade can be found at the Fedora Project Wiki. There are multiple methods for performing ...

If under /opt there are no installed programs (using apt/yum) but only self compiled programs you might be able to get away with that. I have been able to do so for multiple Python versions, but I had made sure that the compiler version on the two distributions were the same. You are probably better of saving space by sharing the VM disc image files (if you ...

I believe the FTP server is forbidden to access /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow. This is not true. From the AVC message, you see tcontext=system_u:system_r:ftpd_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 which is some part of ftpd_t, not shadow or passwd (these files have different context, as you can see from ls -Z /etc/passwd). It is not complete solution, but moving forward. ...

For the sake of completeness, i will add that this is a problem with selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted version 3.13.1-183.fc24. Downgrading these to previous versions or using 3.13.1-184.fc24 fixes this issue. Also see bugzilla entries here and here.

This is a hardware error. Specifically, it's an ECC memory error which was detected but not corrected. How can you tell? Pipe the output above through mcelog --ascii, and you'll get: Hardware event.

I had to copy the modules from Qubes and regenerate the initramfs using the sudo dracut -f command.
