comment fedora 24 won't boot after dnf upgrade
It's a symlink. It looks like it's currently graphical.target. But it also looks like an SELinux problem.

comment fedora 24 won't boot after dnf upgrade
Based on a deleted comment... what does the symlink /etc/systemd/system/default.target point at? (Or run systemctl get-target.) The deleted answer suggests that setting this to multi-user.target provided a workaround.

Errr; huh. It seems to think your EFI partitions (at least) are on both sda and sdb. That's... strange.

comment fedora 24 won't boot after dnf upgrade
Hmmm. It's pretty weird that the older kernels don't boot. I was going to suggest rebuilding the initramfs with dracut but I don't think that'd help if the older versions don't work either. (I guess it can't hurt...) Any chance of an actual, coincidental hardware failure?

What are the errors about failed device mounts, exactly? What's the first one? What hardware is this? (What storage type?)

I think that error may be a red herring. What do you see with journalctl -xb -p3?

comment remove Cinnamon Desktop replace with MATE
Fedora 20 did not ship with the Cinnamon desktop by default. The default desktop is based on GNOME 3, although you could install and configure Cinnamon. (FWIW, we have a Cinnamon Spin as of F23.) So something is not quite right in the premise of your question.

comment Setup a common /opt such that both my Linux Distributions can use it
I'm saying that Fedora won't install any apps there or mess with ones that are there. There's no reason to not store common apps

comment Setup a common /opt such that both my Linux Distributions can use it
From the Fedora side, it should be safe to share /opt, since by policy we don't allow packages to put anything there. We've reserved the right to use /opt/fedora (as provided for by the FHS 3.0, but aren't currently. Assuming other distros respect that, sharing should be safe. (Of course, with COPRs and PPAs, all bets are off.)

comment How to selectively remove columns and rows with bash?
I think you should try it, and ask about where you get stuck. Or, if you still want to go the shell route, break it down into smaller bits here.

comment How to selectively remove columns and rows with bash?
My point is that I don't think it's a few lines of clever shell. I mean, there probably is some, but that's almost a game for codegolf.stackexchange.com. The best thing to do is to write a little program to do it. The bad news is that I'm not going to do that. The good news is that if you do, you'll find it incredibly useful for all sorts of things in the future. But if you really want to work on a shell hack, awk is probably your best bet (it's a small programming language in itself). See stackoverflow.com/questions/2129123/rearrange-columns-using-cut

So you want to match on column title? With issues like selecting between which of duplicate titles, and the desired rearrangement, you're quickly approaching the complexity where spending a few hours to learn the basics of Python or Perl will probably pay off.

And do the headers only appear at the top of the file, or every N lines?
