Every account on a Unix/Linux system has a numeric identifier, the "user ID" or UID. By convention, UID 0 (zero) is named "root", and is given special privileges (generally, the permission to access anything on the system). You could just log in as the root user directly, if you have the root password. However, it's generally considered bad practice to do ...

Security concern, see https://askubuntu.com/questions/16178/why-is-it-bad-to-login-as-root Yes su allows to run commands with a substitute user, when called without arguments it defaults to run a interactive shell as root. See http://www.linfo.org/su.html You need to have the root password for this. You can bypass this by running sudo su (if you're allowed ...

Have you tried an alternative desktop environment that would be less intense graphically? I think this is where your bottleneck lies. Check out the Fedora spinoff that comes with LXDE? It's very lightweight in terms of cpu/gpu/memory usage and is a lot more graphically frugal than a gnome based DE. It should run well on the hardware you currently have. Go ...

Unfortunately, your bottleneck is going to be your graphics. And correct me if I'm wrong, that looks like an Optiplex... The system had 1GB of RAM to begin with, and that's an extremely low number, as far as desktop PC's are concerned. 4GB is kind of low too, but you should easily get away with it. Your graphics are your bottleneck and you will continue to ...

Windows and Linux don't manage administration privileges in the same way. In Windows, system administration tasks can only be performed by processes running at a high privilege level. Normal processes run at a normal privilege level. A user can run a process at high privilege level if their account is marked as administrator; normally, they need to re-enter ...

These are the things I normally do on a system with FirewallD. Did I do a complete reload? firewall-cmd --complete-reload Are my interfaces in the right zones? firewall-cmd --list-all --zone=internal and firewall-cmd --list-all --zone=external With FirewallD "stopped", did I make sure it was really stopped? iptables -nvL and systemctl status ...

Yes. You can select which drives to use in the installer, in the Installation Destination section. This will present pictures of each drive detected on your system, and you can select which ones you want. Instructions for this step of the F22 installer can be found at ...

You may find that hibernation is not enabled by default in fedora's grub.cfg and/or fstab. You need to have a large enough swap partition and an entry for it in /etc/fstab. e.g. UUID=da673383-0c15-4b6c-9eab-0d7e425b7d05 swap swap defaults 0 0 And you need to set the resume option for linux through grub. I did that by adding ...

Consider installing a wine helper application such as Crossover Linux or Play on Linux. You can check their supported software list for the version of Photoshop that you are using. Different versions will have varying degrees of support usually with newer versions being less supported. Other options are using Gimp or running it inside a virtual machine with ...

I was advised to put all three rpm packages in one directory and run one command and so I did and it worked. So I put kmod-wl-4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64-6.30.223.271-4.fc23.x86_64.rpm kmod-wl-6.30.223.271-4.fc23.x86_64.rpm broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-1.fc23.noarch.rpm in a new directory and ran sudo rpm -ivh *.rpm It worked and after rebooting the system I ...

This could be ganged-mode RAM operation (see here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/278881-30-what-ganged-unganged-mode). Check in your BIOS that the memory slots are properly detected and not ganged. dmidecode or dmidecode -t shows you how Fedora sees the RAM.

Mockchain (from mock package) can do what you want. It accept list of SRPM as parameter, It has very naive algorithm which tries to rebuild them, those which fails are tried in second iteration. Those iteration continues as long as at least package is built successfully in the loop. So it can consume lots of CPU cycles, but it does not require too much ...

Fedora 14 is years (4 years!) after EOL (end of life). Current version is 23. The repositories and packages for outdated releases are long gone. Please try to install some up-to-date version.

With dnf (or any other repository-based package installation tool), you can only install packages which are published in your repositories; dnf install squid-3.1.23 instructs dnf to install version 3.1.23 of the squid package, which isn't available in the Fedora 22 repositories. (Fedora 22 currently has version 3.4.12.) To install version 3.1.23 you'd have ...

You can get back fedora. I encountered this issue on my laptop computer each time when the grub2-efi package updated/reinstalled (including system upgraded to next release). It will caused grub2 boot into some kinds of rescue mode like yours. The grub2-efi package from Fedora seems can't install correctly on my laptop (ASUS TX300, Fedora x86_64, version 18 ...
