The top three entries refer to the same instance of Fedora 31 OS, but using different kernel versions (and in case of the rescue mode, different boot options and perhaps a special rescue-oriented initramfs file). Fedora 31 simply received a kernel update from kernel version 5.3.7-701.fc31 to version 5.5.5-200.fc31. You can check the currently-running kernel ...

You install your program hola as /usr/bin/hello-world.sh, so you should run hello-world.sh instead of hola. Or change your .spec file to install the program as /usr/bin/hola instead of /usr/bin/hello-world.sh.

The FreeBSD manual page tells me this is an utility to manage users and groups. All Linux distributions (and most Unices I know) have some special toolset for this, in Linux' case often derived from Debian's shadow-utils. Learn to use the native way of doing things! Such a tool depends intimately on the target's layout (how the relevant files are called, ...

Couldn't you configure Fedora using VB and then export as an OVF. Change background to school wallpaper Install favorites apps Enable repositories, update distro Create add new user script on login Then all the students have to do is import OVF to Virtualbox. I haven't used this version in a while but to speed things up you can use Portable Virtualbox ...

Found answer on Fedora Forum. I simply forgot about COPR. There is also an option to download precompiled binaries from https://www.sqlite.org/download.html (sqlite-tools-linux-XXX.zip). It works perfect for me.

It was, in fact, Virtualbox. I updated to 6.1.4 and it's been fixed. However, to install Guest Additions 6.1.4, I had to do: sudo dnf -y install gcc automake make kernel-headers dkms bzip2 libxcrypt-compat kernel-devel perl Because it turns out I was missing a few of those, and it would silently fail to install properly without it. Also had to do: ...

pyp2rpm -o fedora --srpm -p3 ebooklib will produce an SRPM, which you can the build using Mock. Copr can automate this for you. See https://docs.pagure.org/copr.copr/user_documentation.html#pypi New build -> Select the source type -> PyPI -> file in the name -> Build

I found a solution to my problem somewhere on askfedora: after copying nvidia.conf from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d (as per the RPM fusion howto) one should edit it to add Option "PrimaryGPU" "yes" in the "OutputClass" section. As a result, /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf has: Section "OutputClass" Identifier "nvidia" ...

Broken/flaky USB stick? (I've got some that work fine on some machines, and aren't even acknowledged by others. Never bothered to find out why.)

This depends on your graphical environment (LXDM, XFCE, KDE, etc). Some of them don't source ~/.bash_profile. If you have your reason to use it (e.g. compatibility reasons), you can source it in your ~/.bashrc (expecting you are using bash as your default shell). echo "source ~/.bash_profile" >> ~/.bashrc This method comes with some disadvantages....

Don't use profile for this. Instead, add your changes to ~/.bashrc. That's the file most commonly used for this sort of thing which you want evaluated for each shell you open. So, just remove your modifications from ~/.profile and add them to ~/.bashrc instead. For more details on which files are read under what circumstances, see this answer on our sister ...

You should head over to http://bugzilla.redhat.com and report the issue. After booting with an older kernel and checking the card/setup works, and trying the latest kernel (I've seen several kernel updates since 5.5 got shipped).

You updated the kernel. By default, Fedora keeps the last four installed kernels around (really, the running one and three more) when updating. A newly installed machine has just the running kernel (and the fallback/troubleshooting entry), when you get the fifth the oldest one that isn't the running one is erased. That ensures that in case of some ...

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=30 has worked for me to downgrade from Fedora 31 back to a working Fedora 30 system (my proxy server for Docker has issues starting Docker) using Fedora server (in a VM). I also had to downgrade my Fedora 31 Laptop back to 30 due to font rendering issues which made everything except terminal unreadable. No ...
