Chuck, what is the current recommendation for 'CONFIG_SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA_SERVER'?

I want to run a script that will act when some key on the keyboard

I do not have experience with such things so I do not have any directions.

Hi guys. I accidentally pressed ctrl+C during the transaction check on
a yum update. Is there a command to rerun the command so that whatever
I stopped can be done again, and hopefully prevent breakage?
I have a Thinkpad W520 computer (4270CTO) and I am running Fedora 20 and
keeping its packages up to date. Often when I am working the cpu
frequency transitions beautifully and the computer is very responsive.
I have run some programs that take a long time (hours to days) and have
watched the frequency go up when there is only one thread running and go
down when there are several threads running. So it seems to be working
However sometimes the computer takes a very long time (20 seconds to --
I think -- 15 minutes or more) to react to a change in the load. I have
run commands like "stress --cpu 1" or "stress --cpu 8" and watched i7z.
When the governor is powersave it may stay at 800MHz and when the
governor is performance it may stay between 1000MHz to 1400MHz. If I
leave the stress running long enough it seems like eventually the
frequency will go up to the expected values. Once the CPU frequency
goes up I can keep it up by leaving the stress running and my
applications are responsive. If I kill the stress process, the system
may or may not respond quickly to changes in load.
There is some googleable discussion about the BIOS limiting the
frequency for Thinkpads. However, the value in
does not seem to matter though and the file
is never present. Also the system will respond when I change the
governor from performance to powersave and back which does not seem
consistent with a limit provided by the BIOS.
Does anyone know what could be wrong or how I can debug this?
I sent this to the XCFE list but a helpful person there pointed out it
was probably a driver problem because of the USB keyboard, so I am
sending it here . .:
I don't make much use of the keypad so when it hasn't worked in recent
version of Fedora (currently v20 x86_64), I have usually been in a hurry
and have just used the numbers on the main keyboard - but now this
problem is annoying me!
The console keypad works fine - but in X, whether I use NumLock on or
off - I get nothing - nada, zip - not numbers, not cursor movement,
nothing. The NumLock light comes on but there's nothing at home . . Is
this an XFCE problem or something else? - I spent a lot of time Googling
but came up with nothing . .
Since the XFCE post, I have found these lines from dmsg - in case they
help . .

I need help understanding sound cards and remote machines.
If I use rdesktop to connect to a remote machine and I start a music or
video player there, does the remote machine need to have a sound card in
order form me to be able to play the sound locally (where there is a
I hope that makes sense.
I have a couple of cron jobs setup in my /etc/cron.d/ dir and they seem
to be checked and run as suppose to, according to /var/log/cron.
Basically the 2 jobs point to a couple of dir's that run a few scripts
every so few hours and mirror a few things from Fedora, rpmfusion, etc.
But I would like to get the email results of those 2 jobs after they
run, whether they download anything or not, but right now I don't get
Below is a copy of one of the cron jobs, but they are all the same.
[root@scooby log]# more /etc/cron.d/0quarterly
# Run the quarterly jobs
5 */4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.quarterly
As can see above, mailto=root is set, and I do get root emails (I
tested) to the alias I have set it for, but not the cron jobs.
So how else can I get it to email me no matter what the result is?

Can yum or dnf use the local filesystem for a repo?
I can run createrepo on my local rpms under rpmbuild/RPMS.
Can I tell yum or dnf to look there? I don't want to have to setup a web server
to do this.

I just changed my Freenas server to Linux NFS which works fine with my
Fedora 20 and 21a boxes as well as the Apple Mac computers on my LAN.
However Freenas also offered the ability to connect with smb and afs. I
used smb to enable testing with an old iPod, a minor capability that
I've lost with this change.
Does anyone know of an iOS application that will enable NFS connection?
It looks to me that there is nothing ...
Is there a way to have both NFS and Samba in the same server? I suspect
it's not practical but need to ask anyway.

Just recently I reinstalled my server box, and having to set it up to
receive email again. I got sendmail working OK I think, and have dovecot
setup for imap and pop. But dovecot won't recognize my login info, so it's
not recognizing my default logins, which I just use a normal /etc/passwd
for users and passwords, nothing special. I also have ssl turned off since
it's all local.
So what am I missing in my /etc/dovecot/conf.d dir to configure?
BTW, it is Fedora 21 that I am using, but it shouldn't matter as dovecot
should be same on 20 as well, I would think/hope.
Any help appreciated, thanks.
