I am trying to encode an mp4 video to mpeg-2 using mpeg2enc as follows
mpeg2enc -v 0 -f 9 -l h -b 8000KB --video-buffer 65535KB -F 5 -X 1280 -y
800 -a 312 --no-constraints -o Video_12.dvd < Video_12.mp4
resulting in the fatal error:
**ERROR: [mpeg2enc] -v option requires arg 20..4000
Level of verbosity. 0 = quiet, 1 = normal 2 = verbose/debug
But I am already providing the option -v 0 to keep it quiet.
Anyone familiar with this util?
PS: I tried to us ffmpeg, and it created an mpeg2 file full of warnings
of discontinuity and requiring the re-multiplexing of input.
Hibernate used to work fine (didn't use it much though) but stopped working these last days.
Suspend still works but while it worked flawlessly, now I have had some times that when it's suspended for a longer time it won't come up or won't come up properly (no video).
I have no clue except the regular tendentious suspicion on the selinux-policy* updates these last days (I always suspect them when there's no visible error; don't know if they deserve this or not).
Anyway, I'm attaching pm-suspend.log and the relevant part of /var/log/messages from the last try to hibernate (it was only a few minutes powered down as I was just testing).
pm-suspend.log has no news; it's just the normal failure that it has the suspend recorded but not the awake.
Now the messages look somewhat weird.
A normal boot up:

Difference is that swapon line that detects suspend data. But then it boots normally instead of loading the desktop and recovers the filesystem (sda1=/boot and the encrypted=/home).
Thanks for any clues you may have.
NetworkManager is able connect to internet over USB Huawei modem, but it
seems only from user session. How configure this connection as
system-wide, started when system comes up?
It seems as in Fedora's system-config-network isn't possible configure
this kind of connection (s-c-n not recognize modem, although
udev/usb-modeswitch prepare it and relevant /dev/ttyUSBx exist).
TIA, Fr. Hanzlik

Another desktop agnostic way might be:
$ xdg-mime default vlc.desktop `xdg-mime query filetype /path/to/file.mov`
To get parole to work, I believe you need the gstreamer packages
installed. This is from my laptop:
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
I really miss jigdo. It was a great way of updating the alpha iso into
the beta one. It would be mega-cool to have it available for F18...
It's hard to be free... but I love to struggle. Love isn't asked for;
it's just given. Respect isn't asked for; it's earned!

I have been using enscript to nicely print Internet draft .txt two up
enscript -2r --margins=:::45 -DDuplex:true -P HP-Officejet-Pro-8500
but it would be nice to do this in booklet form like I can get with a
pdf with acrobat reader.
I looked at the enscript man, and did not see a way to do this. Anyone
have experience with booklet printing?
Oh, I am still on F16.
I upgraded a number of lab computers from Fedora 14 to Fedora 17 this summer and a process I used to push patches out to them en mass no longer works.
What I used to do was:
yum --downloadonly --security update
Then I would copy /var/cache/yum to a shared NFS drive and from each client run an update script that would include:
rm -rf /var/cache/yum
cp -pR /nfs/yum-cache /var/cache/yum
yum -C -y --security update
In fedora 14 this would run the update from the local cache (-C option) without prompting via -y so I could script/push security patches to all my clients. I use this method as occasionally some of the clients are offline and need to be manually started up - this way I can be sure each client has the exact same patches.
In fedora 17 when I do this I get the following error message when running the yum -C command on the client:
[Error -1] Check uncompressed DB failed
I ran with -v -e 10 -d 10 and it's failing after printing: "Setting up Package Sacks".
The following yum plugins are enabled: downloadonly, presto, security, tsflags, verify, versionlock
Is this process simply not allowed anymore? If not is there an alternate way to do what I'm attempting?
When I attempt to print from Acrobat Reader, I can print all pages or
the current page. But, an entering "4-5" in the "print only pages...."
box on the print dialog generates a 0K job in the print queue that is
stuck in the "processing" state.
Just me or anyone else seeing this?
I have a problem updating Fedora 17. When I try yum distro-sync - it
fails with dependency error. When I add --skip-broken option, it also
fails to resolve dependencies. What should I do to upgrade my system?
Why there are packages marked x86-32? Isn't it too early for this ABI to
be introduced in F17?
Here is what yum says in first case:
--> Running transaction check
---> Package libstdc++-devel.i686 0:4.7.0-5.fc17 will be installed
--> Processing Dependency: libstdc++(x86-32) = 4.7.0-5.fc17 for package:
---> Package libstdc++-devel.x86_64 0:4.7.0-5.fc17 will be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: libstdc++-devel-4.7.0-5.fc17.i686 (fedora)
Requires: libstdc++(x86-32) = 4.7.0-5.fc17
Removing: libstdc++-4.7.0-5.fc17.i686 (@fedora)
libstdc++(x86-32) = 4.7.0-5.fc17
Updated By: libstdc++-4.7.2-2.fc17.i686 (updates)
libstdc++(x86-32) = 4.7.2-2.fc17
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
When I add --skip-broken as suggested yum fails with following error:
Error: Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
pointing it that there is a problem. Eg.:
1. You have an upgrade for libgfortran which is missing some
dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
solve this by installing an older version of libgfortran of the
different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
2. You have multiple architectures of libgfortran installed, but
yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.
If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
can remove the one with the missing update and everything
3. You have duplicate versions of libgfortran installed already.
You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.
...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
much more problems).
