In a Host-Only environment, usually your host computer gets the address 192.168.56.1 and all guests get addresses starting at 192.168.56.101. This can be configured in the VirtualBox settings window. If you are trying to access the Fedora guest system, you probably want this: ssh user@192.168.56.101 replace user with your username on the guest system ...

I'm running F20 as well and your version looks a bit different than mine.      I would suggest un-installing it and trying to re-install. If that doesn't work then it's likely that the application maintains configuration info, perhaps in the $HOME/.config directory. I'd attempt to remove any files/directories related to this app and try ...

If the cables are attached you can use ethtool em1 | grep Link to see if an ethernet link was established. If it wasn't then there a more fundamental problem at play, since that means it wasn't even able to communicate with the port on the other side of the cable at all. Either port security is enabled on the switch or there's a faulty piece of hardware ...

From my basic knowledge of networking, I'd be prone to testing the dchp server on the router. It may be that your client is continually trying to receive its ip over the connection, but not getting the final response. Try setting your connection to a static IP and see if that fixes the problem. If not, I'd again check your router configuration after you've ...

Shift + Delete delete files permanently. To move to trash, press Ctrl + Delete instead. To disable this safety feature in Gnome3, navigate to the hidden directory /home/user/.config/nautilus and edit the accel file by changing: ; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/Trash" "<Primary>Delete") to (gtk_accel_path ...

If all the packages follow the patterntextlive-<package> you can use a regex to install them like so: $ sudo yum install texlive-\* You can also specify the pattern like this: $ sudo yum install 'texlive-*' NOTE: In either case we're protecting the pattern above from being interpreted as a glob by theshell. Example $ sudo yum install texlive-\* ...

yum search texlive | grep '^texlive' | awk -p '{print $1}' > packages.txt yum install $(cat packages.txt) That will install every single TexLive package available.

If you want to overwrite the data of the encrypted disk with non-encrypted data anyway (i.e. you don't care about the current contents), you don't have to unlock the drive/partition first. If the partition has a particular uncommon partition type, you might want to change that, but it is not necessary. You can just use mkfs.ext4 (or any filesystem type you ...

By default, Fedora 20 installs gnome-software for this purpose. Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for. It is a GUI for managing and installing packages, but looks more like (or better say, wishes to look like...) MacOSX appstore. This may or may not be of your taste, but allows you to browse installed and uninstalled packages as well as ...

You can run yum erase elfutils-libelf to the dependent packages that will need to be removed in order to remove elfutils-libelf.

Fedora 20 install can resize a Windows partition, but it's kind of obscure. First, you need to have insufficient space on the selected drive. You then have to proceed with the installation, then Fedora will tell you the free space on the drive is too small but will offer custom partitioning or guided resizing. Click the latter button, and you'll get a nice ...

It turns out that this problem was not caused by the DVDs themselves, but by Linux getting confused when I used the hardware eject button without unmounting the disc (the eject command works because it takes care of properly unmounting). I assumed that was safe because the discs are read-only and because I thought removing media without safely unmounting ...

You should debug your home internet connection. First do ping , wait for a minute, Ctrl-C and check how many packets lost, what is average latency and was site resolved correctly. After that do traceroute to see what is the exact cause for the slowness/packet drop. If you see that this is on your provider side - call you provider, if it is between your ...

Open a terminal and (as root) run: systemctl set-default multi-user.target or with --force systemctl set-default -f multi-user.target to overwrite any existing conflicting symlinks1. Double-check with: systemctl get-default Another way is to add the following parameter to your kernel boot line: systemd.unit=multi-user.target


4

In /etc/systemd/system you'll find a symlink, default.target. Currently this points to /usr/lib/systemd/system/graphical.target (you can see this with readlink default.target. As root (or via sudo), delete the symlink and replace it: rm default.target ln -s /usr/lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target default.target Double check that with type ...

Another way to do it is to examine the taint file of each module in /sys/module: #!/bin/bash cat /proc/modules | while read module rest do if [[ $(od -A n /sys/module/$module/taint) != " 000012" ]] ; then echo $module fi done If a module has no taint then the taint file will have only contain a newline, which od represents as "000012". ...

Your issue sounds like a bug in the kernel to me.

Check /etc/yum.conf (or any other yum.conf that your yum might by using. Check for the following line: exclude=kernel* Comment out that line, do a yum clean all and try yum update again and it should go through fine. This line is asking yum to exclude the kernel from getting updated. You are getting that error since kernel is not getting updated, but a ...

That error (likely) means you are trying to run a 32-bit executable on a 64-bit system. I'll answer the specific issue here, but see the bottom of the answer for the better approach in general. You say have yum around, so this may help you: yum install lib/ld-linux.so.2 yum will try to find anything that provides that file and then install it. It should ...

There are multiple ways of installing a package in Linux/Unix. Installing using package managers like apt or rpm. Compiling the package from source code and installing them. These packages are compressed archives. Binary packages that come with an installation script or you might directly need to copy the binaries to appropriate location. These too come ...

I get the exact same error when running 7zip on a rar file in multiple parts, I can't help you with that, but I suggest you use rar or unrar. Solution: Download rar from here.

Presuming you have twm installed (yum install xorg-x11-twm), create a shell script in $HOME called .xinitrc: #!/bin/sh twm That's it. I believe this must be executable (chmod a+x .xinitrc). You will now be able to startx from the console and get twm (don't invoke this script yourself directly). If you use a display manager (graphical login), it should ...

The solution is in adding both user iva and user picrin to the group tty and modifying the /etc/login.defs to include a line TTYPERM 0620. This solves the problem.

Is my understanding of the above commands correct ? Yes What does the local repo mean ?

It may be on local system or on a private network. Ref: How to ...

The likely cause for this is your dhcp client. If you're using dhcpcd, which is common, the solution is to add the following line to /etc/dhcpcd.conf: nohook hostname This prevents dhcpcd from calling out to the script which changes your system hostname. By default, dhcpcd runs all the hooks present /lib/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-run-hooks (the path may differ on ...

Neither CentOS nor Fedora are "RedHat Linux". There isn't really any such thing; there is Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which replaced the previous Red Hat Linux. Fedora and CentOS are both Red-Hat sponsored projects but are not Red Hat products. Generally, Fedora is compatible with whatever is supported by the upstream kernel. Fedora does have kernel ...

You can install Valknut, which is another wonderful Direct Connect Client. The benefit of using Valknut is, it is available in the official yum repository so is easy to install. To install Valknut: su -c "yum -y install valknut.x86_64" I personally prefer Valknut over Eisaklt, as it is more stable and available in the official Fedora repository, so more ...

There are no bfq or bfs patches applied to the Fedora kernels unfortunately (esp. in the case of bfq). So there is no way to enable those features by adding kernel args. Further, there is no trusted Fedora repository that has kernels with those features enabled. It seems that until bfq becomes part of mainline you will have to keep creating the kernels ...

I think the key to find out whether it is a LVM-over-LUKS, or the other way around, is the order of crypt and lvm TYPEs in the output of lsblk command. Based on that reasoning, I conclude my setup is a LUKS-over-LVM. For the lsblk output for a LVM-over-LUKS type of setup, look at output showed by @frostschultz below. In my case, since /dev/sda3 is a "Linux ...

cryptsetup luksDump /dev/fedora/01 shows the LVM logical volume to be a LUKS encrypted volume. The output of pvs or pvdisplay would show the partition /dev/sda3 to be a physical volume. Thus you have LUKS over LVM. At a lower level, you have LVM over PC partition. The output of lsblk confirms this: sda is a disk, sda3 is a partition (which contains an LVM ...

It's very odd to have a LUKS inside a plain crypt. Why encrypt twice? Once your filesystems are mounted, lsblk will show you what's what. NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 59.6G 0 disk └─sda1 8:1 0 59.6G 0 part └─md0 9:0 0 ...

The accepted answer did not work for me but the following method did. However, if you have a directory that contains your LPD control files, typically it's /var/spool/cups, you'll notice a bunch of control files in there. These files are kept as a result of theMaxJobs` setting, which defaults to 500 when unset. $ sudo ls -l /var/spool/cups/ | wc -l 502 ...

You can see what you have like so: $ sudo blkid | grep crypto_LUKS /dev/mapper/fedora-home: UUID="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" TYPE="crypto_LUKS" That's a LVM logical volume with crypto LUKS on it. When I mount that volume it's mounted like this under Fedora 20: $ mount | grep home /dev/mapper/luks-XXXXX on /home type ext4 (rw,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered) If ...

According to fedora's wiki : If you are doing a UEFI-native installation and using custom partitioning, though, be aware that you must include an EFI system partition mounted at /boot/efi as a part of your partition layout. In the installer, go for custom partitioning. It'll show you the existing partitions on your disk. setup the efi partition: ...

You're confusing the System prefix of the journald setting with the system/user journal separation. SystemMaxUse sets the total disk space all of the journals will take up together, and doesn't take into account how system and user journals are split out. (Caveat here being that the limits are enforced when the journals are rotated and not directly as they ...

If you look at the output of lsmod it'll typically tell you which modules are loaded due to being a dependency of some other module. For example, in the case of bridge, it looks like stp & llc required it. $ lsmod | grep brid bridge 116006 1 ebtable_broute stp 12868 1 bridge llc 13941 2 stp,bridge ...

Gnome 3 uses an authorization mechanism called polkit so the right way to run that executable as root is via pkexec: pkexec allows an authorized user to execute PROGRAM as another user. If username is not specified, then the program will be executed as the administrative super user, root. To authorize the user in the active session to run that ...

I think you need to use gksudo in this case. I quote from the gksudo(1) man page: gksu is a frontend to su and gksudo is a frontend to sudo. Their pri‐ mary purpose is to run graphical commands that need root without the need to run an X terminal emulator and using su directly So it would seem that the issue here is that the ...

I had a lot of similar troubles. A few things: do the VDI resize whilst the machine is powered off resize the partition with fdisk before resizing anything related to LVM you've possibly set your /dev/sda2 to extend past the end of the disk if you also have /dev/sda1 (you used the full 20G for /dev/sda2, but it probably does not start at 0) I found this ...

No, updating a disabled service with yum should not re-enable it. I suspect however that you never actually stopped the service - doing systemctl disable just stops it starting automatically the next time you boot. If the service is already running then it won't stop it - you need to do systemctl stop for that. So if you just disabled it, and you haven't ...

I fixed this by disabling the shortcut in Yakuake itself ("none"), then going to KDE Control Panel, Global Keyboard Shortcuts, find Yakuake from the dropdown list of apps, and set open/retract as desired.
