When you have the machine working as a hotspot and dhcpd working, you just need to make work as a router - my recommandation is to try finding a guide to setup the version of Fedora you use as a router. It basically comes down to: enable ip forwarding set up routing set up masquerading allow the traffic in whatever firewall you use. I've never used ...

Since OC 9.0(?) Filesystem checks are disabled by default for more performance. Check and maybe change your config.php to 'filesystem_check_changes' => 1, https://doc.owncloud.com/server/7.0EE/admin_manual/configuration_server/config_sample_php_parameters.html

This is an old question so not sure if you still need the answer, but in case it helps someone else, here's what worked for me with Eclipse Mars and Fedora 24. You need to run Eclipse using GTK 2, and change the tooltip colours in your chosen GTK theme. My theme is Zukitre/ so I edited the gtkrc file here: sudo vi '/usr/share/themes/Zukitre/gtk-2.0/...

Open this file in your arm chroot: /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/dnf/conf/substitutions.py And change __init__ function as below (effectively, hard code working arch names): def __init__(self): super(Substitutions, self).__init__() arch = hawkey.detect_arch() self['arch'] = arch self['arch'] = 'armv7hl' self['basearch'] = dnf.rpm....

Distribution Synchronization Your problem could be "distribution synchronization". Running this command solved my problem. yum distro-sync Synchronizes the installed package set with the latest packages available, this is done by either obsoleting, upgrading or downgrading as appropriate. (http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man8/yum.8.html)

I'm not sure if you found a good solution for this but I ended up writing a quick little Go program. It acts as a caching proxy and keeps around RPMs, but proxies upstream to database files so it's always correct. It's configured for CentOS, Fedora EPEL, and Arch Linux for now. You can see it at https://github.com/yobert/remirror

You can read details on this at the Fedora wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB#Data_persistence The high points are: Create your live image with livecd-iso-to-disk --overlay-size-mb. Our new Fedora Media Creator tool doesn't support this. Because copy-on-write snapshots are used, every write increases space used, even when ...

Okay, so after I tried some more things I got another error: dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: DBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._g_2dfile_2derror_2dquark.Code17: Cannot open dconf database: invalid gvdb header So I figured that meant something was wrong with ~/.config/dconf The solution was that I just deleted ~/.config/...

In the end the solution was to run the following command: firewall-cmd --zone=FedoraServer --add-port=3000/tcp Seems that on Fedora 24, or the Fedora 24 as set up on linodes perhaps, iptables doesn't have a TCP entry.

As you found out, with dnf you need to specify the --releaserver argument. In addition, if you want to use repositories specific to the chroot, then you'll need a bit more work. I find the easiest solution is to create your own dnf.conf file inside the chroot, put the repository configurations inside, and then use it. For example, let's say you want to ...

Judging from the description, the problem seems to be that the server's firewall blocks incoming requests to the Angular development ports. Firewall configurations can vary from fairly simple to incredibly complex, please be careful and make sure you understand what you are doing. That being said, the most likely solution is to open the ports in your ...

I upgraded Fedora 16 to 17, then to 19, then to 21, and I think most of the issues I hit probably would have been hit in a clean install anyway. However, each upgrade took about a full day including doing a full drive image beforehand, then following all the detailed upgrade procedures I've read which include doing things like checking for RPM packages ...

I had a similar problem with Fedora 24. Although as it uses systemd, the solution may not apply to Fedora 15. For a systemd + kde system, first see if kdm service is disabled. systemctl status kdm.service If it's the case, simply enable it. systemctl enable kdm.service

Edit /etc/cups/cups-files.conf as root. Look for the line with SystemGroup sys root add wheel to it. The following two liner should do it for you on Fedora 24 sudo sed -i '/SystemGroup sys root$/ s/$/ wheel/' /etc/cups/cups-files.conf sudo systemctl restart cups

The solution is sudo usermod -a -G sys YourUser I wrote a more detailed article on how to debug such issues.

Eject your Bootable Flash drive and insert GParted CD, check which of the devices/partitions have got the boot flag on, if it's other than your native HDD(which it used to/should be), revert & save it(don't let the flash be bootable) and try rebooting. Your HDD has already got the grub, it could just be pointing through the flash as while updating you ...

I also had the same problem with QC35 on Fedora 24. I tried a customized bluez package here: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/npmccallum/jelling/packages/: # dnf copr enable npmccallum/jelling # dnf install bluez-5.37-1.gatt.fc24 After downgrading from 5.40 to the modified 5.37-1 version, I could succeed to pair the headset manually by bluetoothctl ...

Patrick's suggestion of docker is good. Any other virtualisation method would work well too (e.g. VirtualBox or kvm). Another option is to create another user (e.g. minecraft) on your system just for running minecraft server. Give it it's own group (e.g. minecraft) and make sure all minecraft files have RW access for group, then add your own user to the ...

I have these headphones as well, along with a handy laptop running Fedora 24. After chatting with one of the Bluez developers on IRC, I have things working. Below is what I've found.

As I understand, upgrade step by step is most supported way. Upgrading is not only replacing old files to new, it also can contain conversion of old configuration to new (install script in rpm can do many things). This upgrade process tested for some popular upgrade scenarios and can depends on core system components (glibc binutils ...). There possible not ...

I have also bought Bose QC 35 few days ago. After some initial problems, I managed to make it work on Debian, with ALSA and bluez 4.x apt-get install bluetooth apt-get install bluez-alsa apt-get install blueman after installing these packages, it still did not work. The problem was with dbus permissions. I solved it by adding my user (uid 1000) to group ...

I read up on your specific headphones, and they use Near Field Communication (NFC) to facilitate pairing, and this was mentioned as specifically added in Bluez 5.3, although, it mentioned on at least one blog "NFC comes built in to the new keyboard, but unfortunately Gnu/Linux doesn’t support NFC well yet. Although NFC support is built in to the Linux ...

I understood the Nouveau should be disabled manually before of installing another video driver. So I did it and I've got trouble to use the GT520's under Fedora 24. My results: the repository's one has a problem with the secondary video; the downloaded driver has a problem of shutting the desktop later. The Nouveau came back then. It is flawless. Even ...

Just so you know before you do anything take a full backup if you can or at least your root drive. Messing with LVM is all good until there is a mistake then its hard to get stuff back. Now you will want to do this on a live CD as the root partition needs to be unmounted and then from a terminal in the live session we will do the following. Make sure that ...

One solution is to use slock (apt-get install suckless-tools) which does not put the display to sleep. You'll need xautolock if you want to run it automatically.
