I have a system that uses LDAP. Originally I set this up as a
stand-alone until all my company's security issues were mitigated. The
problem is that on the GDM login, it does not display the name. I have
this set up on our RHEL servers but not my laptop, so I log in as a
local user and ssh to the servers. I can SU (or SUDO) to the LDAP user.
I do have a local user set up with the same userid and group, but a
separate home directory. I probably missed something somewhere.

I have decided to also create an incremental backup on my own and was
wondering what you would recommend. I did some DDG'ing around and came
up with rdiff-backup. Would you recommend this? (There are
some more, but this one appears to have an rpm in the fedora
repositories.) Personally, I am a great fan of rsync but I also wanted a
setup that would be fast because I would like to run it every hour
OK, I know this is OT, but it is slightly so because the system used to
backup are updated F20 systems:-)
Any suggestions/personal experiences/suggested tweaks/references would
be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks and best wishes,

Did a yum update this morning, and got a gazillion lines
of this nonsense:

Using Mate on FC20, with latest updates.
Cntrl-Alt-F keys never worked from the very first login into Mate Desktop.
These are the installed mate packages. Am I missing something?
It my be worthwhile to note that at the login screen, Cntrl-Alt-F keys DO
After login, into mate desktop, they stop working.
how do I make it so that the firmware for a particular device doesn't
get unloaded when the device is no longer in use?
Apparently the firmware is unloaded when the device becomes unused. At
least it is loaded again when the device is used again; messages in
dmesg show that the firmware is loaded again. There are no messages
about unloading the firmware, so I don't know whether it is actually
unloaded or not.
Loading the firmware again (or unloading it) seems to cause problems
with the device. So I would like to load the firmware once and keep it
loaded, without any more attempts to load it once it has been loaded.
Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)
I purchased a used (refurbished) Dell Optiplex 755 that came with
Windows 7 installed. I am trying to install Fedora 20, but when I get
to the "Installation Destination" screen the fedora installer is not
finding any "Local Standard Discs", which means I have been unable to
start any installation.
The system boots to Windows without any problem. I was planning on
overwriting the disc and getting rid of the windows product entirely. I
have checked sum the installation disc, and have even created a second
Fedora 20 installation disc and have the same problem.
Sure would appreciate some guidance from someone on the list that has
solved a similar or same problem.
Exploring f20 and have a self inflicted wound.
While trying to get flash to play on vlc I found a conflict between
libvpx and some other libraries so the resident genius yum removed it,
and all of the other packages dependent upon it, thinking they'd be easy
Not the best idea. Now I've got all sorts of video but not a peep of audio.
I yum installed alsa* and pulseaudio*. The ALSA mixer I have now looks
nothing like the one here before. Pulseaudio volume control->Playback
says "ALSA plug-in [plugin-container (deleted)]: ALSA Playback" but yum
list reports alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-x86_64 as an installed package.
I couldn't find an Audio Group. Does anybody know how to reinstall the
standard f20 audio packages or where I can find a list of packages
installed into a fresh f20 system (from the live xfce spin)?
Does anyone know what happened to the Shilling cdrecord? I've tried to
download it from several locations, and the domain appears to no longer

A bit OT.
