Dear Fedora Experts,
I' ve recently bought a new Dell Precision m6800 and today I was trying to
install Fedora 23 in dual boot with windows 7 (this was the OS originally
on the machine).
I' ve run the installer from the live CD and after a couple of wrong
attempts I successfully finished the installation process without errors or
at least apparently without errors.
I' ve restarted the machine I got into the following error message:
*file "/boot/grub2/i386-pc/normal.mod" NOT FOUND grub rescue>*
neither windows nor fedora boot.
Booting again from the live cd I got that ever the partition are there:

got is that the boot is stucked on
So what I have to do to fix the situation and be able to run both windows

I don't know exactly since when youtube videos can't be played in
firefox on my machine (fedora 21): I can see the first image of the
video, the slider works normaly, but the video is not played....
Is it a bug or do I need some extra plugin?

Anyone know if the default values for timing out
recently changed in some httpd update on fedora?
I used to be able to "stream" recordings to MX Player
on my tablet by just providing the video files as
Sometime in the last few weeks though, MX Player
started cutting off the recording after about 10 minutes
(as though it believed it hit the end).
I have just found every apache directive with timeout
and keep alive in the name and changed them all to
huge values, and MX Player is no longer having a
problem, so one of them must have changed default
Just wondering if anyone knows which one (out of
nothing more than idle curiosity).
With Fedora 23 using the "Power Alt+Tab" extension, <alt> + <~> and
<super> + <~> (~ == 'above_tab'), gnome cycles through the work spaces
instead of the other windows in the active application. This wasn't the
case in Fedora 22.
Does anyone know how to disable the workspace cycling? I tried looking
in dconf-editor -> org > gnome > desktop > wm > keybindings without
luck. I am not sure how to look into how extensions work, and I realize
this might be an issue with the extension instead of gnome itself. If
that is the case, any pointer on how to look into extensions would be
much appreciated, too.
Thanks for any help! This is making me pull my hair out...

What if the cure for cancer is trapped in the mind of a person without

Using Virtualbox in an updated F23 I've
installed VM's for Fedora, Centos, and
Fedora 21 xfce live because I happened
to have it handy, the others from the
Fedora21 boots and runs as expected. the
others boot and run with a text screen
but startx reports "command not found"
and a ping to other than localhost,
reports network unreachable.
What am I missing?

Does anyone have Fedora 23 working with a 4K monitor? Last week I got an
Asus PB287Q monitor, but got bit by the "hardware loses signal when monitor
goes into sleep" issue. I'm returning that monitor and would like to get
another one, but am hoping to find a good success story. I'm running Fedora
23 with a GeForce 750 Ti card using the NVidia drivers. Does anyone have a
working 4K setup with this or similar hardware?
thanks for the prompt reply

I just marked the normal partition flag instead of LVM, is there any
practical and related issue with my problem in this?

uhm, I' ve checked and in what should be the /boot dir I' ve
as far as I know everything is there or is it not?
I've also checked the options related to UEFI in my BIOS and seems that
UEFI and Secure boot are both disabled.
This are the related options:
Legacy (this flagged)
UEFI (this is not flagged)
Advanced Boot Options
Enable Legacy Option ROMS (this is selected and the note says "This
option is not allowed if secure boot is enabled")
Enabled UEFI Network Stack (this is not flagged)
Enabled w/PXE (this is flagged)
Could be that I missed something? Any other idea?
I noticed mlocate updatedb is not running. I believe there should be
mlocate.cron installed into /etc/cron.daily
repoquery reports no such file.
How do I get fedora's version of mlocate package to run updatedb daily? Why
isn't it installed this way?
