Looks like everything you're doing is correct to diagnose the problem. From my understand its a bad cd driver, bad hardware. When you mentioned "It kicked in last time without me doing anything" then it worked last time but now its a hardware issue. Either it mounts the drive, but if it worked once and it doesn't mount again, it all concludes to hardware ...

This has happened to me before. I was trying to install Linux on my Acer x64 bit laptop and I ran into those same issues. I didn't want to install, Ubuntu for Netbooks or install the Tablet version, wanted the actual Linux on my system. I honestly think installing regular Ubuntu or Fedora is too robust for tablet hardware and it isn't tested well on those ...

You can use Alacarte: Alacarte (previously the Simple Menu Editor for GNOME or SMEG) is a menu editor for the GNOME desktop, written in Python. It has been part of GNOME since the 2.16 release. To install, just run: sudo yum install alacarte Edit: If you don't see the launcher right away, try restarting Gnome Shell. Also, make sure that the ...

you can create a ".desktop-file" file in "~/.local/share/applications" then the specified "Icon" will show up in the shell menu For example "Open Office 2014" launcher: $ cat/more ~/.local/share/applications/.dekstop-file [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Open Office 2014 Comment=Open Office 2014 ...

You CAN'T. Copying a file means reading it from one place, and writing it to another. If they have read access, they can copy the file. By definition.

I would confirm the steps that you used to compile the driver yourself. This driver is known not to work out of the box, and so compiling it from source appears to be your only option. This guide shows the steps, for Ubuntu, titled:Ubuntu Linux TL-WN725N TP-Link version 2 WiFi driver install. You can modify these steps as follows for Fedora. $ sudo yum ...

Try this: rpm -qf /etc/cron.daily/apt.cron That's the rpm command which tells you which package a file comes from (if any). In this case, the file comes from the apt package, which you have installed on your system for some reason. This is the "apt-rpm" port, which, as the name implies, can handle Fedora's RPM packages. It's kind of interesting as a ...

I'm on Fedora 20 and suddenly started to have this error on newly installed systems. All previous hosts (>70) just were able to so something like: echo "Hello world" | mail -s "Salute" johndoe@somehost.com so useful from scripts and so on. Now command line invocations started to fail with sSMTP[3144]: Unable to connect to "mail" port 25. sSMTP[3144]: ...

When it comes to non-OS X partitions, bless only does two things: Make sure the partition is marked as bootable. The Fedora installer should have already taken care of this. If so, bless will not do anything for you. Adjust the Mac's NVRAM settings to make the chosen volume the default boot volume. Apple being Apple, the mechanism to do this is likely to ...

This is not at all about desktop environments. You can configure NetworkManager and use it from any desktop environments to provide the wifi hotspot for you and it in turn uses the hotspot support in wpa_supplicant. It doesn't use hostpad at all. I can't tell you why hostapd doesn't work for you but this should get you running.

Install 'dconf-editor' if you don't have. Launch it and go in left panel to org->gnome->mutter. There you can change value of 'overlay-key' to 'Control_L' or 'Control_R' or any other key if you want. Setting is applied instantly after closing edition (click some where else in dconf-editor).

If I may, I suggest you test my tool named Idok. http://metal3d.github.io/idok It can stream local media (music, audio...) or streams, or whatever is streamable to your XBMC inteface. It can serve media from a opened port, or through SSH Tunnel. There is an easy installation script, it should run nicely.

Often when the OS boots but then shows a command prompt or a black screen instead of a GUI login, there is a problem with the graphics driver. The most common cause of this is updating the kernel but not the driver's kernel module. If this is the problem, a short-term work-around is to choose the previous kernel from the grub boot menu. To solve the ...

You've not given out many clues in your question. However, there are a few options open to you: First, boot and at the grub menu press a key to stop the boot. Use the cursor keys to select the latest kernel and press E to edit the entry. Use the cursor keys again to select the entry that starts with linux and move to the end of the line. Try some of the ...

I suggest you first try another your computer in another place, preferably closer to the cellphone base station, and see if the reception is better from there. That should give you an indication whether the device malfunctions or not. (Don't get directly beneath the providers antenna's, my experience is that you can get bad reception there). Obstruction of ...

That version of the file libssl.so.1.0.0 doesn't appear to be available on a stock F20 system.

Solution Description After many months of having this issue with intermittent WiFi connections and sometimes losing connectivity for hours at a time, Bug 1108801 on the Red Hat / Fedora bug tracker seemed to hold the solution for me.

Wi-Fi? You could ping your own router instead of "major sites", there is always a small chance the connection is keep dropping somewhere on your end instead of your ISP's domain servers or routers. As the matter of fact the script approach is excellent, keep pinging the LAN side with increasing interval and see how much time it takes for the connection to ...

I modded up the other two answers, they're both helpful ... GarethTheRed has got the real answer. I ran into the same problem after doing a version upgrade and my ca-certificates was out of date. However, to be able to update ca-certificates, you first have to be able to actually use yum. I suggest: Go to /etc/yum.repos.d Edit fedora.repo and ...

You can use pam_mount. Read step 5 in this mini tutorial that walks you through it. Please note that there is a security issue with this.

I'm not sure, but I can promise you that it is not "Cinnamon Desktop" because yum treats it as 2 different things

As for Fedora, both methods will work, there is no guarantee to chose which one is preferable. For Redhat/Centos, you should use /etc/sysconfig/modules, since when it's documented in Redhat documentation - Persistent Module Loading. Another way you can use /etc/modules.conf in Redhat/Centos base distro. If you use Debian base distro, use file /etc/modules ...

Removing vim-minimal was a mistake. If you intend to make use of sudo you have to have that package installed on Fedora. You can tell that sudo requires it like so: $ rpm -q --requires sudo | grep vim vim-minimal I'd suggest putting it back, and working around whatever the other issue actually was with vim. Fedora has always had excellent support when it ...

Ok, if anyone ends up in a similar situation, you can use pkexec yum install sudo. pkexec will let you enter your password in your OS's GUI. 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. This helped: ...

Fedora running GNOME uses simple heuristics to work out if an update is a OS/System update or an application update. If the package has a .desktop file (which are normally used to populate the DE's menus) it is considered an user application and can be updated without a reboot. Without this file, it is considered a OS or System update and a 'Update and ...

It a feature from Fedora 18 and above, called OfflineSystemUpdates. This makes updating of system components more reliable by doing it in an minimal, controlled environment.

After analyzing the scripts in Fedora, I realize that the configuration file path is read from the symlink /etc/grub2.conf. The correct grub2-mkconfig line is thus: grub2-mkconfig -o "$(readlink /etc/grub2.conf)"

Specific actions that need to happen when a RPM package is installed or removed are included within the RPM package itself in pre-install, post-install, pre-uninstall and post-uninstall sections.

I've never tried with these specific RAID technologies but it's been my experience that it's best to operate at the filesystem level when attempting to migrate data from one physical implementation of RAID to another.
