I'm a novice at assessing the question of multi-boot vs using
I've seen a lot of discussion on this topic on this email list; some of it
expressed with frustration ("I can't upgrade my Fedora installation
because of my multi-boot setup ..."; or "why use a multi-boot system; use
So my general interest is to continue using Fedora as my primary OS; but
enough times, I need to use the MS Office suite.
I have a laptop (Dell Latitude E6220 with MS Windows 7 factory-installed;
750GB HD, 8GB RAM). I've begun a few multi-boot installations using
Fedora, to see what some of direct challenges are (the first
steps to shrink an existing partition, in order to create room for a
Fedora installation). But have never completed an installation.
My issue is the reverse of the thread about openweathermap.org.
Openweathermap.org is working fine for me in the OpenWeather GNOME
plugin, but if I switch to forecast.io, nothing loads. This used to
work fine a couple of months ago, but now it fails on multiple
machines. I have API keys for both sources and I can log into both from
I find the forecast.io reports more accurate than openweathermap.org,
so I'd prefer to switch, if I could get it working again.
Any suggestions or related experiences?

Over the last few days I've become increasingly frustrated with the
touchpad and keyboard on my Dell Laptop. Often, the <right-click> menu
would show up for whatever application that I was using in that moment.
And with a little more time, the <Alt-Tab> function would fail. Lastly,
the the click function on the mouse/touchpad was somehow disabled, so that
selecting something from a menu was not possible.
My general solution was to login from another machine via ssh, su to root,
and then poweroff/reboot the machine.
I also dis/re-assembled the machine and cleaning it, on the speculation
that there could be something that was causing a short somewhere.
As a troubleshooting possiblity, on bootup today I used the prior kernel
(kernel-4.1.7-100.fc21.x86_64). So far, no mouse/touchpad/keyboard
Any recommendations on troubleshooting would be appreciated in the event
this isn't a buggy kernel issue.
Is there a way to control gnome-alsamixer, so I can toggle the mute on
and off for microphone *monitoring*? (That's hearing it back through
the soundcard, using the hardware mixer.)
Or another controller for the mixer? No, the CLI alsamixer doesn't give
control for that parameter. Well, not that I can see.
I want to hear sidetone when doing VOIP while wearing headphones. And I
don't want to have to open the mixer panel every time I start or stop a
Leaving the microphone monitoring on all the time isn't an option. It
adds unwanted noise, and is a potential audio feedback source if not

Long ago I gave up on using Windows (TM) [Tantrum Machine], and I've
never regretted it.
Cutting or copying in my main desktop and pasting into
a virtual machine in virt viewer has always "just worked"
as long as I can remember. Today it isn't working.
I think saw a lot of qemu and libvirt updates come through
recently. Anyone know if something broke this? Or is it only
broken for me?
The lisbsndfile-1.0.25-14.fc22 spec removes the GSM610 code and then
does an autoreconf.
What is the GSM610 code and why is it removed?
What is the autoreconf step supposed to accomplish? Build seems fine on
CentOS 6 without it.

Where does packageKit, which is (I assume) invoked by the KDE apper
program, keep its log. The log can be viewed in apper, but I would
like to have it in text form, so I can edit and search it. The
Fedora "User Guide - Managing Software" claims "Every completed
transaction records the affected packages in the log file /var/log/dnf.
log", but I can't find any records of updated packages there.

after latest updates personal file sharing is not working (I can see
personal shares on PC1 on same machine, and so on, that is useless).
When I try to use VNC I do not see any computer on the window where I
should choose the machine to be connected..
And last but not least I cannot print to a remote printer.
Everything was ok untl October 16th.

when recording with audacity and saving as .wav I can play the file with play
(from sox package) without problems. All perfect.
But when I klick "play" in audacity the recording (or imported .wav)
plays far too fast. I guess 10 times too fast.
Project Rate is 44100, and with the previously installed Fedora 14 (shame on me)
I never had this problem.
How to get the playback in correct speed?
Kind regards, Frank Elsner
