Try installing Fedora first and then Debian. Debian usually plays well with others, as long as it the last kid picked.

Fedora uses RPMs. Assuming the util-linux RPM is installed on your system, the command to show the pre-removal scriptlet is: rpm -q --queryformat '%{PREUN}\n' util-linux You can check if the "util-linx" RPM is installed with this command: rpm -q util-linux If you want to show all RPM scriptlets for util-linux, you can use this command: rpm -q ...

First part of this question refers to some how to, which is NOT making program available from everywhere -- it is making the program available from that particular init script, which is the correct solution for such task. Second part lists the correct solution to make it available from everywhere. If you see manual pages for bash(1), you can see the ...

Do you have codecs installed? Fedora is not shipped with any proprietary codecs that are mostly required to play videos. You can refer to this answer on ask.fedoraproject.org, but I believe it was solved also here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/9111/sticky-what-plugins-do-i-need-to-install-to-watch-movies-and-listen-to-music/

K9Copy is a powerful graphical tool that can read a VIDEO_TS directory structure (or a DVD) and produce (re-encode) MPEG-4 video files. It also supports MPEG-2 extraction, as well as Audio extraction, which is useful for creating lossless backups. It is available in the Fedora repository. To install K9Copy on Ubuntu, you need to enable the multiverse ...

Oh, I investigated almost whole day and found solution - problem was in SELinux. If it is powered off - mariadb starts successfully. So, I just needed to configure it, and I did it!

Fedora 12 is a bit old but I think you can still do the following: Look in /var/log/secure which has lines for each use of sudo. For example, you might find: Aug 11 15:16:37 home sudo: user : TTY=pts/2 ; PWD=/home/user ; \ USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/rpm -i /home/user/mypackage.rpm List all the installation times of the rpms with: rpm -qa --qf '%{name} ...

Just boot with a liveCD, mount your Fedora's drive (mount --bind /dev /sys /proc /pro/sys to your mounted Fedora's) chroot to your fedora's drive and passwd to change the password.

I didn't bother researching how to import missing modules and such. That's a pretty steep learning curve for my taste, as I am only starting to use GNU/Linux. Instead, I formatted the UFD with ext4 using a healthy Ubuntu installation on another PC. I was then able to mount it on the patient PC, and from there I only had to copy the file. In terminal on the ...

MacOS Boot: I recently installed Fedora 22 on my MacMini Late 2014 and also lost the means of booting MacOSX. I had previously installed Refind boot manager which I used to choose which OS (MacOSX or Fedora 20) to boot. The good news (probably will also work for you) is that you can simply boot while pressing the ALT key and choose which EFI to boot on ...

Welcome to the future. It is now 2012, and in your brand new Fedora version 17 /bin is now merely a symbolic link to /usr/bin. There is no separate /bin directory.

To define a domain for more than just your own computer in one place, you must have some authoritative domain controller. On a home network, the thing providing the local and first-line of DNS (domain names) info is your router. Any device on your home network is a member of the domain being defined by the router (because they are on the network, so they ...

Have a look at FreeCAD: http://www.freecadweb.org/ It is very simple to install, as it has ready-made installation packages, also for Fedora. It also has good and clear tutorials.

Differences in the command line behavior is documented extensively in the DNF docs, at Changes in DNF CLI compared to Yum. That also includes a mapping and brief explanation of differences in common plugins and utilities. As for "why", I recommend this article from DNF developers. In quick summary: the Yum API was organically grown, rather than designed ...

I'm on fedora 20 with the same /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo as you and yum can find fedora 12 version files.

There aren't any URLs that still work for Fedora 12. You could try manually downloading a few packages if it's small, or you could try to mirror the old archive locally and use that as a yum repo, but Fedora 12 is well past its end of life, so there aren't live repos for it anymore. To find individual packages, or the tree for where to download the repo ...

Most programs create files without the execute bits set (0666 == -rw-rw-rw-). Execute bits are pretty much only set by the compiler, during installation of an executable, or manually by the user. Then the umask is applied, to determine the actual permissions. create 0666 rw-rw-rw- umask 0222 r-xr-xr-x effective 0444 r--r--r-- Note that it's not ...


1

Wiki has a good description of umask. A 0 bit means whatever the creating process specifies goes through, while 1 means it doesn't. So '222' means ignore the write premissions for user, group and others, but keep the read and execute bits. In your example, whatever created newfile didn't set the execute bit (generally when you create a new file you don't ...

winbind and sssd import the AD groups in an equivalent manner to NIS netgroups. So your group definitions in the /etc/sudoers file need to start with + and not %. Furthermore, names containing spaces should either be double-quoted, or each space specified as \x20. %sudo ALL = (ALL) ALL +"domain users" ALL = (ALL) ALL +domain\x20admins ALL = ...


1

Several months after you asked but the correct answer is that you remove all domain information from the group. All the information is set and extracted by SSSD automatically. The only flaw I see in some of your examples is that you escaped the space with a ^. An AD group of Enterprise Admins would have a sudoers line that starts with %Enterpirse\ Admins ...

I have some time trying to install Catalyst 15.3 on Fedora 22. Since the driver is only available in Ubuntu, I decided to try making my own driver (I did not programmed) and after several attempts I made it, I built one driver, who you can install generically on any GNU/Linux distribution. The following instructions are for installing the driver on Fedora ...

Compared to Yum, DNF offers: Better dependency management Support Extensions other than Python Documented API Lower memory usage Less automatic synchronization of metadata with repositories, a process that users often complain "happens too often and takes too much time." See Will DNF Replace Yum?

The three block devices are logical volumes in an LVM volume group, fedora. swap is used for swap (spill-over for RAM), home is used to store all your personal data, and root is used for everything else (programs, system configuration, system logs...). There are good reasons for these three devices to be separate: swap works better as a separate block ...

The easiest way to do this using a UI that will guide you through the process is GParted, otherwise you could delete/modify partitions with fdisk in the command line.

I'd personally make no assumption on sudo, just as putting sudo in a script is a bad idea. Your fourth suggestion (check whether the script runs as root) is best, IMHO. Just that I prefer checking the effective user ID instead of its name: [ -n "$EUID" ] && [ $EUID -eq 0 ] || <not root, exit> This will leave the choice to the user, which ...

You can make a service file and in its [Install] section write Wants=graphics.target And in [Service] section write ExecStart= echo 3 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness And it will do the trick.

They both use the same back end dependency solver and pull from the same repositories, but due to different projects moving a different speeds, they don't pull from a unified local cache (including the metadata cache — the information about what updates are available and so on). And, because Fedora distributes content on a large volunteer mirror network, ...

You are not supposed to read them. These are binary files. Only the tool "journalctl" with correct user permission can read them. Its a feature of "systemd". Any normal user can't read the system logs, unlike the traditional "syslog" system where any user can "cat" the "/var/log/messages" and see all the system logs.

Turns out, to enable the touchpad, one has to copy a reference Xorg config snippet: cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf In addition, one can modify the file to set default options for tapping and scrolling.

I also upgraded recently to Fedora 22 and experienced the same issue. I resolved it by creating a symlink called libd.1 which points to (in my case) libdnet.so.1.0.1: ln -s /usr/lib64/libdnet.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib64/libdnet.1 After that Snort worked

Since you installed from source code (I'm guessing with ./configure; make; make install), the RPMDB (RPM database) didn't get updated, so RPM thinks you still ahve the old version installed. If you want RPM to know about the new version, find an RPM of the new version (or make one) and install it with RPM (rpm -i).

You need to understand two things in F22: dnf doesn't autorefresh it's cache like yum does, in fact it goes out of it's way to lie to you sometimes. This means that like apt you actually need to run: dnf clean expire-cache && dnf upgrade In F22 the desktop isn't using the same package manager as the command line, anymore. They are using the same ...
