comment How to generate a year-quarter date from the command line?
dconv now -f%Y%Q | tr Q q if you really need that Q to be lower cased. (PS: we're packaging this in Fedora with date as the prefix instead of d, so "dateconv".)

comment Gnome-shell cannot adjust screen brightness on dell laptop with intel graphics
When you press the keys to adjust the brightness, do you get the on-screen brightness display at all? Odds are good that this is basically a bug — in fact, if you have to hack anything here, it is. Check out this debugging block post, and file a bug with the requested info, please. (And thank you. Disclaimer: I work on Fedora.)

comment Passwordless login only works using directly invoked sshd on server
Sorry I missed that earlier -- I skimmed over how you attempted to disable SELinux. See my answer for some alternate suggestions.

comment How do I loop through a list from dconf in bash?
@Cyrus See edit. That isn't really any better than the "positive" tr -d.

comment How do I loop through a list from dconf in bash?
@RomeoNinov I'm open to that (provide an answer? It's not obvious offhand how to use this), although I'd prefer an entirely-bash solution.

What are you seeing in the logs in the failed case? (Possibly with LogLevel increased in sshd_config....)

comment Docker says “no space left on device” but, system has plenty of space?
can you attach the output of lsblk? This blog post may help, although it's a little out of date.

comment Decent GUI notifications in GNOME
Also note that help is on the way — Gnome 3.16 as featured in Fedora 22 has redesigned notifications. If you're feeling brave, update to the beta and check it out.

comment yum install: “No package <package-name> available”: fedora.repo empty
@Nina I think adding --oldpackage will allow that to continue. You could also use yum reinstall instead of rpm -Uvh — the direct URL should work even if the repos are corrupted.

What problem are you trying to solve? Why not use one of those, or ~/foo?

comment Build gdal with mrsid plugin on fedora 21 server
I'm not quite sure I understand the premise of your question. Fedora 21 Server is Fedora 21, and has the same packages as Fedora 21 Workstation, Fedora 21 Cloud, or any of the other derivatives. The only difference, at this point, is in the default configurations and what's there out-of-box.

comment Debian init runlevels
And now that's the case in Debian as well. Time to switch "default target" for "runlevel" in your mind.

comment How to modify files in yum.repos.d to install MySQL and others?
I think what's happening is that mirrormanager isn't returning valid data for F14 anymore, and that's why the end up empty. Skip the mirrorlist (or newer metalink) and configure the baseurl.

comment Host linux distro without GUI?
@ArneJensen Yes, if you configure it this way. How to do that specifically depends on the distro. In Fedora, you would run sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target (as opposed to graphical.target).

comment How to modify files in yum.repos.d to install MySQL and others?
Something like that? http://archive.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/‌​Fedora/$basearch/os/, I think should work (yum fills in those variables). Not that I really condone this — there are so many unfixed security issues that I think it's somewhat irresponsible. But, hey, if it's the class, do what works....

comment How to modify files in yum.repos.d to install MySQL and others?
@dabad Doesn't help right now, but Fedora (which I work on) is starting a push for more university involvement, and we'd love to help your instructor update the curriculum to a more recent Fedora version.

@Woot4Moo You mean, like, installing other packages in %pre? Not safely, no.

comment Build gdal with mrsid DSDK on fedora 21
This isn't sufficient debug info. The error is either further up or is suppressed/hidden.
