I don't know! What else did you do?

comment Fedora 22 loop on boot
Hmmmmmmm. It sounds like there's a number of odd things you may be doing. It seems likely that you broke something in doing one of them.

comment Cannot install driver for BCM4312 with Fedora 23, no internet connection
This question is perfectly on topic here and it's ridiculous to downvote or send people off to askfedora, which is a fine project, but there's no reason at all that one would need to do that. (Disclaimer: I work on Fedora.)

comment Fedora 22 Live Install to Docking Station
Fedora is a Linux distribution and therefore on topic here -- no need for the disclaimer. (Although, disclaimer of my own: I work on Fedora.)

The tmp part should probably be a separate question. Can you ask that as a new question please, including the full AVC denial?

comment Apache2 home directory on Fedora
Hmmm. There was a very old bug about this, but with recent releases including 23, it should just "magically" happen — files written by httpd/php should have a transition to the correct httpd_php_tmp_t.

comment Fedora 22 loop on boot
I'm not quite clear on the problem. Do you mean that the system boot stops at the above? Does the final line repeat more than twice?

comment How to make dnf to install older versions of software
We do keep old builds around for at least three years (and so far, forever, but we don't promise that) even though they're gone from the mirror. The Packages link provided here is a great way to find them if you need 'em for some reason.

comment How to make dnf to install older versions of software
An additional complication is that we don't keep updates on the mirrors forever, because they'd take too much space. So usually, the only versions available are the version built at release time plus the latest (and only the latest) update (if any).

comment Why user and root passwords cannot be empty on Linux?
Unless you're never connecting to the Internet, you are using your computer in a hostile environment where all your neighbors are trying to get access to it.

comment Why is there a discrepancy in disk usage reported by df and du?
FWIW, in Linux coreutils (as of 4.5.8, way long ago), there's an --apparent-size option which takes sparse blocks into account.

Worth noting that you can test if n equals five at the end to know if command succeeded or not.
