comment Can't start mysqld (mariadb) on Fedora, if put a backup into /var/lib/mysql
Is that the only error or warning you see with journalctl? After restoring your backup, did you set file contexts correctly? (Try running touch /.autorelabel and rebooting.)

comment How to check which user installed the package or software?
Do you need to know for security reasons or for convenience?

@Sergei Because that doesn't work?

comment how can I configure Apache so that PHP scripts are run with permissions of the owner of the script?
1. Apache has to at least start as root to bind to port 80, in the absence of other fancy configuration. It can do some basic startup tasks and the drop privs. 2. There are actually a number of ways this can be done which are arguably better than the setuid script approach.

comment How to conect wi-fi network without using GUI?
That is not clear from the question at all. Additionally, Fedora is the upstream for RHEL, but is not RHEL.

comment Creating an symbolic link in /bin automatically creates a second link in /usr/bin and the which command chooses /usr/bin
To be clear, it didn't create a second symlink. You're just looking at the same symlink from a different direction.

comment Creating an symbolic link in /bin automatically creates a second link in /usr/bin and the which command chooses /usr/bin
The answer below is correct. But once that is cleared up, I'm still unclear: do you have a specific problem this was causing? The two names clearly refer to the same thing.

comment Why root is not constrained by pam
@sebelk Looks like this was backported into RHEL6 in 2013. There's a patch there you could use elsewhere.

comment “Running transaction (shutdown inhibited)” how much “inhibited” is shutdown?
@fedorqui "Request for Enhancement" — an issue filed for something which isn't a bug but where additional functionality would be nice. In this case, an -i flag to shutdown which lets it ignore inhibitors even at a later time. Or even an option to wait until the inhibitor is lifted and then shutdown.

comment Startup and shutdown issues after Fedup from Fedora 20 -> 21 -> 22
Can you try uncommenting #WaylandEnable=false (remove the #) in /etc/gdm/custom.conf?

comment “Running transaction (shutdown inhibited)” how much “inhibited” is shutdown?
@fedorqui Hmmm, I think there's an RFE that needs to be filed, because I'd hate for shutdown -r +60 to fail when no one is around...

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.)
