Upgraded my 21 system to 22 this morning...but using the script
All seemed to go well...after reboot I went into my mate desktop and
the panel at the bottom of the screen is not displaying. A quick check
showed it was loaded and seemingly running. Google didn't find
Does anyone have a suggestion ?
I'm running Fedora-23/KDE, and am trying to activate /var/log/messages,
but when I run "sudo systemctl restart rsyslog" I get the entry
Nov 25 11:40:35 william rsyslogd-2027: imjournal:
fscanf on state file `/var/lib/rsyslog/imjournal.state' failed
[v8.10.0 try http://www.rsyslog.com/e/2027 ]
in /var/log/messages and no further messages appear there,
although "sudo systemctl status rsyslog"
says the rsyslog service is still running;
and I see nothing relevant in "sudo journalctl -u rsyslog",
just the information that the service has re-started.
The URL www.rsyslog.com/e/2027 I'm advised to read
says "This is a very generic error code that happens
whenever some unexpected IO error happens",
which is not very helpful.
Has anyone managed to get information in /var/log/messages
as in pre-systemd days?

I'm from Romania, the speed from Fedora repo mirror is very low (from
50kb/s to 1 mb/s when it's good, usually the download speed stays
between 50 and 150 kb/s with the official repos and over 1 mb/s with
other repos ) when doing updates and when I install packages with dnf. I
tried using fastmirror module but I see there is no change and I lose
even more time because of the search for the best mirror.
1. What can I do to resolve this issue?
2. Is there a way to manually test mirrors and chose the best one for me?
3. How do I know witch mirror can I trust?
4. Where can I find a mirror list?
5. How can I create a local mirror?
I have Fedora 23 installed on a [Lenovo
with the default Gnome 3 Desktop Environment. I was thinking of trying
multiple Desktop Environments, so that I might see what are thee new
breakthroughs. Basically I'm using Gnome for a long time.
What better way to try a new interface then just installing it along
Gnome 3? So I've installed `KDE` using `dnf groupinstall "KDE Plasma
Workspaces"` I was very surprised to find out that after the reboot
`KDE` wold not work ...
What happened is that when I chose to log into `KDE` my screens changes
and the Desktop Background appears the just in a few second I'm back to
the log in screen. No matter how many restarts or how many times i try
the result is the same.
* Is the first time I tried to have multiple Desktop Environments on
Fedora, is this something that happens often or is it because of fedora 23?
* And why wold this happen, all seems very straightforwards.
* Should I make a [bug](https://bugzilla.redhat.com/) report and what
should I write in it?
* What is your experience in having multiple desktop environments on
I am an non ascii file (ISO-8859 text executable),
how can I get the lines containing non ascii characters?

I think the command is triggered automatically when you install a new desktop
environment so no there is no extras knowledge need to switch DM when doing a

be double sure of claims I am making. I will give it a try tomorrow.
Make sure you are replying to the list like you say in your long signature :).
I only fooled with this for about 5 minutes, but I'm getting a
black screen with GDM when I login. I just got the fedora 23
nvidia 340xx driver from rpmfusion which finally supports
xorg server 1.18 (nouveau won't work at all with my card),
and when I login with gdm, this is what happens
on the 3 or 4 tries I gave it while I had time to fool
I get the GDM login prompt drawn correctly, I select
the user, type the password and login.
The screen then goes black (or dark gray, anyway) and
the mouse pointer can move, but nothing else happens.
I've waited two or three minutes with no change.
I decide to go to a console screen and see what is
running, so I hit Ctrl-Alt-F2.
Boom! I instantly get a gnome3 desktop. If I do
Ctrl-Alt-F1, the desktop is still there.
I have no idea if it ever switched to console 2 or
Just curious if anyone else has seen anything like this.
When I have time to fool with it I'll try ssh instead of
a console switch to poke around and try switching
login managers and desktops to see if they all have
