The way to stop/start services in Fedora (later versions) is using systemctl. However, there may be a few services left in /etc/init.d/ which you could control with the service command. You can still control them with systemctl as systemd automatically maps them to unit files for you. For example, on my CentOS 7 (Fedora 19 or thereabouts), there is a ...

It's typically the case that the service scripts are redirected to systemctl (Systemd) scripts so it's basically your preference which you want to use. Example From my Fedora 20 system. $ service sshd status Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status sshd.service sshd.service - OpenSSH server daemon Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/sshd.service; ...

That is a list of the repositories that yum is currently using. You can get a description of each using: $ yum repolist You can remove this by lowering the debug level of yum: $ yum -d 1 install <a package> To make it permanent, find debuglevel in /etc/yum.conf and set it to 1 (I believe the default is 2). If you do this, you may miss important ...

I eventually just wrote a script that could be used to install and uninstall the driver, as well as set up the xorg.conf as my system required it: #!/bin/bash if [[ ! $(whoami) = "root" ]]; then echo -e "\033[1;31mPlease run this as root\033[0m" exit 1 fi if [ "$1" = "enable" ]; then echo -e "\033[22;34mInstalling fglrx... ...

YUM tries to install: brlapi-0.6.0-5.fc19.i686 (fedora) from @Fedorra repo: Available: brltty-4.5-5.fc19.x86_64 (fedora) Althought there is already installed one: Installed: brltty-4.5-8.el7.x86_64 (@anaconda) from @anaconda repo. You can try update with disabled repo @fedora: yum update --disablerepo="fedora" Or install package ...

I assume you did a fresh install and added the drives to the new computer. First do a: mdadm --assemble --scan and look in /proc/mdstat if the array has been activated. Then run: mdadm --examine --scan >> /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf to get the config information in your new mdadm.conf again.

The problem was that the system was still using lightdm (xfce's display manager) instead of kde's display manager which is kdm. To force the system to use kdm first I did systemctl enable --force kdm.service then restarted. Followed by yum remove lightdm-gtk-1.6.1-3.fc20.x86_64. Finally finished with yum remove @xfce Should be useful to anyone who might ...

First of all, try yum-complete-transaction. It's possible that this will just finish everything up. If it doesn't, try package-cleanup from the yum-utils package. $ sudo yum install yum-utils # if you don't have it already ... $ package-cleanup --cleandupes If you're lucky, that will do it. If you're less lucky, you may need to do some manual cleanup, ...

Your system crashed before it managed to cleanup the old packages (after installing newer ones) - hence the messages. You can fix this by removing the older one. Check exactly which versions you have installed. For example, if [example] in your question is gnutls, then: yum list installed gnutls It should show: Installed Packages gnutls.x86_64 ...

It is very common for a package maintainer to include distribution specific patches in packages. Sometimes you can find those included in the changelog of the regular package, which you can query with rpm -q --changelog tar Most often you'll need to check the source package for the details e.g. ...

You can dissect the Fedora source rpm - tar-1.26-29.fc20.src.rpm - and find out. On Fedora, you can install the src.rpm. You can also extract it's content, like this: rpm2cpio tar-1.26-29.fc20.src.rpm | cpio --extract --make-directories --verbose The answer to your question is in tar.spec and the associated patches. Example: # Add support for extended ...

What worked for me was rpm --erase --nodeps cairo which removes the cairo package without checking any dependencies that might be violated by such an action, followed by yum install cairo which installs cairo from the configured package repositories

Although searching on the internet will lead you to instructions like: reboot/reset your router, reinstall "this" or "that" driver version or make sure your ESSID is not configured to be hidden, the problem may be the channel. Having a look at the 2.4 GHz (802.11b/g/n) specification (my router can only use de 2.4 GHz band), it seems that countries apply ...

The obvious answer is this is happening because grub can not find the windows boot loader. The less obvious answer is because the grub configuration file does not properly specify the root for the windows bootloader. The default operation seems to leave that line out. While it would be somewhat complicated to fix the default Windows Bootloader, the ...

I've not seen a way to incorporate these results into Nautilus, but there are GUIs for search in mlocate's database. The one that I'm most familiar with is called catfish.

Set the permissions on /home to 711, not 700. Execute permission is required to access anything within a directory by name, so all users need execute permission on / and /home to access /home/theirname. Omitting read permission will prevent them from listing all the other subdirectories of /home. Permissions on the home directories themselves can be 700. ...

There is a developer saying that the libdv module is deprecated in the later builds, here. Excerpt: A next thing I saw was in the configuration wizard that the DV module (libdv) is not checked (so not installed). But if I look in Synaptic then I see that libdv4 version 1.0.0-6 is installed. (0010239) pez4brian (developer) 2014-08-16 ...

I found a solution to this problem as @don_crissti suggested this thread, that had the fix.

The site seems to be down right now. What you can do as a temporary measure is to make an entry in your /etc/hosts file: 137.226.34.42 download.fedoraproject.org then upgrade your system, comment out the above entry and reboot, to see if the problems have disappeared with the upgrade. 137.226.34.42 is ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de.

The plug plugin inserts a rate plugin only when needed, but when you insert a rate plugin manually, that is what you get. Just drop the rate plugins; you can use the stereo_x_raw devices directly. (For the resampling algorithm, you can rely on the default setting.)

In a Host-Only environment, usually your host computer gets the address 192.168.56.1 and all guests get addresses starting at 192.168.56.101. This can be configured in the VirtualBox settings window. If you are trying to access the Fedora guest system, you probably want this: ssh user@192.168.56.101 replace user with your username on the guest system ...
