Serge's comment made me do my homework - study the man page in more depth than before. The solution was simply to enter in the shell losetup (without any arguments). Then, afterwards, losetup -f resulted, successfully, in /dev/loop0

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 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.

Does this already exist? No, because... \2. Is this possible or probable? ... computers do not work like this. You want to run something before the computer has booted, and then to modify the early boot process in some way. \3. Is this what a "custom" linux build would be? No — you want to do things that happen before Linux is involved. ...

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 ...

I'm about to attempt this as well. From what I've read elsewhere, Kali doesn't include lvm in their default initrd. I'd suggest installing lvm and rebuilding initrd. Alternatively, reinstalling Fedora will likely result in getting the Fedora grub image, which should boot Kali fine.

This used to happen to me as well, my issue was graphics drivers, the only thing that solved it for me was to install the Nvidia drivers. That stopped the freezing and even speeded up the login process.

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.

I had a similar issue with 24. Very strange. I rebooted, clicked on 'not listed' and entered my root user login. That got me into the desktop! Then I went to settings/users, unlocked it, and enabled autologin for my main account. Just to be safe I added myself as 2 different new accounts, 1 as administrator. But they turned out to be unnecessary (I think), ...

What you need is an SMTP server, a Mail Transfer Agent. You can simply install opensmtpd and start the service. The default configuration is to do local delivery of mail.

Leaving aside the design flaw of not being able to, as Alexander pointed out, alter the chosen session if you have a non-passworded account - I noticed that on a fresh Fedora 23 workstation install, merely running dnf groupinstall "KDE Plasma Workspaces" was not enough - once I'd done that, KDE was installed, but the gear icon in the GDM login screen was ...

An individual IPv4 address is /32. /24 designates a network, which in this case would be XXX.XXX.120.[0-255]. Try changing the ipv4.address entry to XXX.XXX.120.44/32 and see what happens. If that doesn't work, I have to then ask the same question asked in comments - is NetworkManager a requirement, or can we configure the address using other means?

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

If you have a very good reason for using Fedora 20 : 1) Move all repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d to a backup folder. 2) Use this fedora20.repo, which points to "the old archive" : [fedora20] name=Fedora20-i386 baseurl=http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/20/Everything/i386/os/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 [fc20-updates] name=Fedora20-...

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.

VLC is not pre-installed repository on Fedora 20-23. If you installed their release repository in your computer, try to delete it and test download again. After you installing the vlc applications, just delete the uncompleted repository. cd /etc/yum.repos.d ls -lrt rm -f rpmfusion-free* Everything will be all right after you delete that unOfficial ...

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.

ngircd supports the directive: [SSL] CipherList = @SYSTEM You also want to check the certificate you are using with: openssl x509 -text -noout -in cert.pem For Let's Encrypt, I used fullchain.pem and connected to ngircd over SSL on port 6697 with HexChat.

Solution: Activate the Windows 10 guest with a licence key for windows 10 pro and then the VM will be able to utilize all the CPU core that you assigned to it from the Linux host.

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 ...

To make this permanent, you'll want to update /etc/default/grub to point to the correct swap partition. Example: Change this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.lvm.lv=rootVG/root rd.lvm.lv=oldnameVG/swapLV rhgb quiet" To this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.lvm.lv=rootVG/root rd.lvm.lv=rootVG/swapLV rhgb quiet" When that is completed, you 'll want to regenerate the grub ...

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.

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 ...

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 fedup is obsoleted since Fedora 22, the DNF system upgrade should be used to update from Fedora 22 to Fedora 23.

I found the solution. It turns out that my version of Fedora 22 came without dbux-x11, which is necessary for a message that a USB stick got connected to travel among processes. If anyone has a similar issue, refer to the following document: http://www.techtimejourney.net/solving-the-automount-issue/

After some searching, I found that I needed to open /etc/dnf/dnf.conf and add the line proxy="http://<my_proxy>:<port> Simply setting the http_proxy in the bash shell was not enough.

Note that while you could edit the sudoers file (using visudo in a terminal as root), what you probably actually want to do is add yourself to the wheel group. See How to make Fedora user a sudoer? for details, but in short, this group is predefined as having sudo-for-everything privileges and is our standard "admin" group. (If you check the "make user an ...

I'd try dnf reinstall kernel or (better) dnf reinstall kernel-4.4.9-300 since it's possible that dnf has status saying that the given set of files is complete.

PkgDB is official Fedora package repository for Fedora, which is accessible using your fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo files on Fedora.
