comment How to prevent tzdata updates on CentOS resetting /etc/localtime
@guido But, try $ rpm -q --triggeredby tzdata, and you'll see the glibc-common package has a script triggered by tzdata update. Specifically, it runs /usr/sbin/tzdata-update. (This is on CentOS 6 and earlier; things are different with systemd.)

Okay. That's another question. :)

You'll see this from the live environment.

They will be on different lines, unless you use echo -n to suppress the newline. Perhap something s wrong with your terminal?

comment How to set Sunday as the first day of the week in Gnome Calendar, Fedora 21
Note that the above approach (editing files in /usr/) will be overwritten by system updates.

comment How to install the UI-theme in Fedora 21
@MikeB Oh, actually, we have that one packaged up; you should be able to just yum install gnome-shell-extension-user-theme.

comment Can I color-calibrate a Dell U2413 wide-gamut monitor under Linux?
I don't mind the time — it's an interesting paper. I just don't think it really answers this question. :)

comment Can I color-calibrate a Dell U2413 wide-gamut monitor under Linux?
I think I'm missing something. I'm specifically looking to calibrate a wide-gamut monitor for daily use in Linux, whereas your paper covers color calibration for projectors (which are probably not wide gamut) using a specialized renderer. Maybe I'm just being dense; can you draw the connection to "how to do this very thing" more clearly for me?

comment How to find out if a system uses SysV, Upstart or Systemd initsystem
So, actually, from the point of view of the use case, it may actually be more correct to treat EL6 as SysVInit, even though it is Upstart underneath — if you're dropping new services into place, traditional SysVInit scripts are the preferred approach.

comment How to find out if a system uses SysV, Upstart or Systemd initsystem
Yeah, me too. I think one of the goals with the previous Fedora/RHEL switch from SysVInit to upstart was user invisibility (we never made use of Upstart features, just SysVInit compatibility), and I think that explains it — while systemd is, shall we say, very clear about being new and different.

@Scott Yes, although I think in practice looking at /sbin/init should get you the right answer for most rpm and dpkg-based distributions, and others might need their own special-casing anyway. I'm in favor of not engineering in unnecessarily complexity just for theory. (I'll change my mind if you have a good example distro, though!)

But, RHEL 6 (and therefore CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc.) uses upstart, and stat /proc/1/exe yields File: '/proc/1/exe' -> '/sbin/init', which doesn't tell you much.

comment How do I compile an out-of-tree kernel driver on Fedora to fix super-slow wifi?
Asking for help isn't annoying, by the way. We all have to start somewhere!

@BetimNeutron Is your speed better with the newer kernel?

comment How do I compile an out-of-tree kernel driver on Fedora to fix super-slow wifi?
And the good news is: this alone may fix your root problem, because from the git repo you linked, it appears that the plan was to merge the fixes into the 3.18 kernel.

Ok, cool, so rebooting should take you from that older 3.17.4 kernel to the 3.19 one.

Type uname -a and see if the version matches. If not, a reboot should fix that.

Make sure you're running the kernel version that you installed the devel package for. That command will install the newest version by default, and that might not match what you are running, and it appears the build process picks up the version info from the running kernel.
