comment How can I reinstall Network Manager after uninstalling it?
Check with yum whatprovides */nm-applet and yum whatprovides */nm-connection-editor what packages you need to install as well.

comment Fedora 17 not booting
Well, boot from CD. Mount your root-FS to, for instance, /mnt. Do a chroot /mnt. Then try mount -a or mount everything you can find in /etc/fstab. In theory - and if you booted a kernel which is the same architecture than the system you have installed on your harddrive - you can run yum.

comment Fedora 17 not booting
I'd first try to enable the 'Cool 'n Quit' feature in the BIOS and see if you can boot at all. If that's doesn't make your system boot so that you can't install that package, I'd say boot from a CD, mount the root-FS, chroot to it, mount all other filesystems and then install that package.

comment X11: Client not authorized when calling with sudo
I'm not sure if this still applies, but back in the old days you need to allow a certain host to display anything on the screen. This was done with "xhost +remote_host". Not sure if that plays well with sudo and it might open up a few other problems.

comment no root shell freely available sudoers policies
You forgot shutdown, halt, mkfs, dd... IMO there is no secure way maintaining a blacklist of possible dangerous programs. Go with a whitelist instead and think very hard why you would want users to have root-privileges in the first place.

comment How could running strace be fixing my OpenGL issue?
You could try an ldd on libGL.so and look if it references any funky other libraries. Maybe it uses a proprietary version of some other lib which was replaced by another lib, so that the call to a function fails.

@Hello71 only really useful if you'd have the debug symbols of that library. Last time I checked NVIDIA doesn't ship debug libraries.

comment Why is this scp command creating a directory one level up?
No, it doesn't matter at all where the client put's his private key. It can even be on a USB thumbdrive or on a smartcard. Do some simple check: 1) What is the local user? 2) What's his homedirectory? 3) Does the homedirectory belong to thos user and is it writeable?
