As mentioned by @Warwick -- A clean install is the only sane option at this point. Rebuilding the fstab in particular would be challenging since Fedora uses UUID's for mappings. Time to backup any data, then re-install.

Starting with Fedora upgrade process has moved from the installer to FedUp, which you run from the system to be upgraded. (You can use the RPMs on the DVD media you have, although fetching them from the network is the recommended route.) Further instructions on the FedUp page. Make sure you check a few F18→F20 gotchas on the common bugs page — make sure you ...

I assume you booted into the install process with a Live OS (Fedora does that as standard). My first approach would be to boot into a more forensic type of OS, such as GParted and do all kinds of checks. For instance check RAM, check hard drives, etc. If your PC can boot from USB stick, I'd suggest using that, to rule out the CD/DVD-ROM drive is faulty. ...

Not too familiar with fedora, but try attaching an external hard disk/flash drive and mounting it with write access, and running setup (whatever fedora's setup program is called) like this: (fedora-setup-program-name) 2>&1 | tee /media/exthd/setuplog.txt This is where you mount your external disk/flash drive at /media/exthd. the 2>&1 should ...

One important step is you have to remove the WLAN device from NetworkManager to let the hostap manage its. More details at here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=985041#c8

It is extremely improbable that this represents a security breach. A badly-implemented malware would use a dot file for a modicum of stealth. A better-implemented malware would hide itself by patching the kernel so that no file would ever appear. The mundane explanation is that you accidentally pasted a line containing the character > followed by this ...

You can try to find out what process is creating the file with the lsof command: lsof n5LJFcZz+8slfpALAFzHk8msAh9vsDCiYwKvzw8uAirPE00Jq9HqTSvlT9ChhjZtA==1 A more powerful tool is inotify which can monitor directories for the creation of specific files. Take a look at Determine which process is creating a file for more info.

The location of libraries might differ between fedora on ubuntu. This could cause a build for fedora not to function on ubuntu and vice versa.

I'm fairly certain there aren't any distro builds of 4.6 for Fedora 20 (or 19, or 18, or 17). I am working on a project that I do not have permission to update to be comparable with 4.8 and need to be able to install gcc 4.6.3. If this is a C project, there's no difference between what 4.6 will compile and what 4.8 will compile unless you stipulate ...

try removing the current version then re-install the wanted version: yum remove gcc yum install gcc-4.6.3 Note: you may keep both the current version and 4.6.3 version if you wish, because the binaries for them would be different: /usr/bin/gcc-4.8 and /usr/bin/gcc-4.6.3 if yum did not work you have to use make: first install gcc-4.6.3.tar.gzfrom ...

You could always try to install the rpm from the later fedora versions. You can find them on rpmfind.net. Simply download the rpm matching your VM architecture and install using yum yum localinstall emacs-24.3-18.fc21.x86_64.rpm I'm not sure if you'll have the correct dependencies resolved. If so, you probably would have trouble compiling from source ...

With Fedora 17+, you can install emacs 24 simply: sudo yum install emacs You can search a package before install: yum search emacs Update Refer to this link, it seems that emacs 24.3 is not include in Fedora 17 repository. In this case, I think you should install emacs from source to get the newer version.

It may be that the module you need is not included in the default kernel modules - you can likely solve this by installing the kmod-staging package. First you would need to download the RPM of kmod-staging from here or somewhere else (e.g. here) - you will likely need to download dependencies such as staging-kmod-common . These packages need to match the ...

I think this is will be more trouble than it is worth for most people, but I'll outline some steps. Note I did not try this myself so there could be unforeseen complications (but I'm fairly certain it should work, if done properly). I have not gone into detail about accessing .rpm contents, building a kernel/initramfs, configuring grub, or creating a DVD ...

I found the solution to my problem here. The workaround: I increased the memory used to 1024M with these instructions. I set the "Maximum files opened for read/write" to a 101. I ran the application from the command line with this command: sudo bash -c 'ulimit -n 8192; sudo -u username ./azureus'

You will need to modify the vuze shell script. This shell script is actually a link to a file called azureus, vuze's previous name. Within this script change the line JAVA_ARGS="-Xmx128m" to JAVA_ARGS="-Xmx256m", for example if you want to increase the memory to 256MB. Then restart vuze

Original answer provided on Ask Fedora (source) Original comment Also, please try adding i915.modeset=1 to kernel command line when booting (you should edit Fedora line in grub and add it to the end of linux/linux16/linuxefi line in the boot config, and then press F10), and then run glxinfo when booted. Also, I'd like to know what do you see when you boot ...

Just want to conclude this thread with adopted solution in absence of a fix to the root cause which I am guessing is in the Fedora 4 TCP stack implementation. As a solution I simply introduced an immediate re-connect attempt in case the failure is due to ETIMEDOUT and protocol used is IPV6. This has fixed the problem for me and my team for good with possible ...

Your permissions issue is not a file permissions issue but SELinux disallowing the sendmail executable from accessing files on the filesystem in a specific location. Your best friend for dealing with these is to use the SELinux troubleshooter GUI. $ sealert -b     You'll then want to follow the advice to add the necessary contexts to your ...

You should remove the ldap conf from ssh conf files /etc/ssh_config and /etc/sshd_config . Check both files for:- PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt yes and change it to:- PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt no And of-course don't forget to restart your services:- service sshd restart

Typically I would expect phpMyAdmin to request a MySQL username and password. The MySQL root user can (and should) have a different password from the normal root password. You did secure your MySQL install with a password, right?

You can increase security by restricting the commands that a "sudo user" can run. This is highly recommended. This is the syntax on a Debian box I have, might be slightly different depending on the system. Cmnd_Alias USER_COMMAND = /bin/user_admin someuser ALL = PASSWD : USER_COMMAND This way someuser can only run the command /bin/user_admin as ...

As the other answerers said, this is the default behavior. If you really want to enter the root password instead of the user's password, you can add the line Defaults rootpw to your /etc/sudoers file (use the visudo command, do not edit the sudoers file by any other means). The usual disclaimer: The defaults chosen for sudo are the way they are for a ...

The issue may be resolved by deactivating Num- or Caps-Lock, as is stated in the XKeyCaps manual: "If you can't select anything from the right-button popup menu, it might be because you have NumLock or CapsLock down. I'm not sure how to fix this, it seems to be some dumb Xt thing." Alternatively: "If the popup menu is always greyed out, or ...

That's how sudo works. You trust the user and the user's actions are logged. If you want to enter the root password, then you want to use the su command as follows:- su -c yum install <package> Password: Once the command above finishes, you're returned to your normal user's prompt.

Well it is how it's done. You will grant the permission to users of group wheel to perform administration duties. In short you grant them root access. And this is not distro specific - in all Linux distributions and even BSDs you will do the same. If you're worried about compromising security you could remove the user from sudoers table and go with root. ...

I recommend you to check network connection from virtual machine to the Internet and DNS settings. Possibly yum is unable to connect repo servers. strace is a separate package. You can install it after yum issue will be resolved.

To enable new mode of SELinux you should restart your OS but before change your SELinux policy to permissive or disabled permanently via configuration file.

For fedora, 20 is very stable. I've been using it for many months. Enough time has gone by that patches have stabilized it nicely. Just remember Fedora is a test bed for new technologies for Redhat.

After I shrunk the volume in Windows by a disappointing amount, the option to shrink the volume in the Fedora 20 installer became available allowing me to shrink it down by much more. Shrink the volume in Windows 1. Boot into Windows 2. Go to "Disk Management"     a. Right click "Computer" from the desktop or Start Menu ...

I have Fedora 19 installed. It has /etc/sysctl.conf and /etc/sysctl.d. $ cat /etc/sysctl.conf # System default settings live in /usr/lib/sysctl.d/00-system.conf. # To override those settings, enter new settings here, or in an /etc/sysctl.d/<name>.conf file # # For more information, see sysctl.conf(5) and sysctl.d(5).
