comment Updating kernel but not packages
@goodking If the tasks the machine performs include connecting to the Internet, please update to a newer release. There are many known, critical security vulnerabilities that do not have fixes in F13 but which are corrected in current releases.

comment After changing resolution, pixelated screen
Do you have 1600×900 as an option, instead of 1920×1080? How does that look?

comment can not install, No targets specified and no makefile found. Error
Sometimes, an error is buried, but in this case it's right at the end. A good approach when faced with something like this is to start at the bottom and scan up for anything that looks like an error.

Yeah, it's general good advice to do that. :)

comment Wifi not working on Fedora 23
Broadcom does not redistribute the driver for this card in a way which allows us (Fedora) to legally redistribute. I don't think the situation has changed since Fedora 18, unfortunately.

comment CentOS install - select existing partition as /
You say that there is a 500MB partition which is assignable to /boot with no problems, but I don't see any details on the larger partition other than "XFS" and "larger". Can you expand in more detail? If you switch to one of the text consoles (ctrl-alt-f5, I think, but I don't recall offhand), do you see any useful diagnostic information?

comment Is there a way to exclude packages based on size rather than its name, while updating via dnf
Updated with some ideas. You might also consider a) checking with the wifi provider about changing this limit for package updates or b) using VPN or some other tunneling solution to avoid the issue. The per-file limit seems a bit silly — why is downloading a million small files okay but one big file banned?

comment Fedora Core 4 won't get an IPV4 address
That's important information to not leave out, as you are talking about an OS released over a decade ago, and out of support for 9½ years!

What version of Fedora are you using? Are you sure your network has IPv4?
