I am planning on running a Virtual Private Network from my Fedora
firewall out to a UML virtual colo (running RH9) at another site.
That site will be the place I present services to the world;
httpd, ssh, sftp, smtp. This is to comply with the "no servers"
and dynamic ip restrictions on my Comcast connection to the net;
if my firewall always drives an outbound connection to the
colocation site, I am not worried about changes of ip address,
and I am not opening any inbound ports.
There are a number of options for the VPN - the most attractive
are cipe ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
and FreeSwan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ ), though I am told that
one can do all this through an ssh tunnel. I would rather have
simple and secure than super-duper; I have plenty of bandwidth,
and will send outbound http and smtp from the firewall, so the
main bandwidth user will be incoming spam/b/b/b/b mail.
Anyone have some experiences to share about setting up VPN? Is
there anything about either cipe or FreeSwan that is likely to
break with FC1 or FC2?

my computer boot only in emergency mode ...
Looking the journalctl (command journalctl -xb), I found (in thejournalctl
) these lines in red color :
ATA2:00: link is slow to respond....
ATA200: SRST failed (erro 16)
That seem indicate that it is a problem to access the HDs..
I found a possible solution to the problem in this post:
There is wrote that :...the problem can depend by the physic set up of the
HD (as "master", "slave", "single drive", ...): this set up can be done by
changing the position of a jumper on the HD...
I know that, in the past time, the HDs had to be set physically in this
way.., but recently I never heart anymore that the modern HD need this
So actually I don't care anymore of the configuration of the HDs
(my HD is Toshiba 1 TB that I bought few mounts ago).
I would like to have a confirmation that what I read in the post is only an
obsolete information and, in any case, I would like to know also what I can
do to go around in my problem..
>From the command line: ls /dev/sd* I get:
give me this input :
/dev/sda /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sda5 /dev/sdb /dev/sdb1
I used to use netcat to check if a particular host is up or if I have
internet connection before I run a few scripts. I would use the -z
option in particular. But now I see that has been removed:
$ nc -z imap.gmail.com 993 && sync-my-email.sh
ncat: invalid option -- 'z'
Here is the excerpt from the old manual page:
-z Specifies that nc should just scan for listening daemons, without
sending any data to them. It is an error to use this option in
conjunction with the -l option.
Any ideas what happened to it? What can I use as replacement?
Thanks for any ideas.
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
Most messages received from this fedora list are labelled junk by
Thunderbird. This is even though I whitelisted "From" =
"users-request(a)lists.fedoraproject.org". Actually, I have this problem
both in my Fedora-21 and my windows-7 systems. Any ideas? Surely
messages from this list are not junk!
imagine a medium sized office room, where four engineers hack away (all of
them currently have Fedora 22 workstations, to stay on topic.) On that room
there's a fifth PC, hooked to a big TV on the wall (also running F22) that
has Firefox running full screen with some visualization of sorts (dashboard
thingy). Those five computers are all on the company wired network...
nothing you haven't seen a thousand times before.
Now, Sally, one of the engineers wants to share her desktop with the others
and uses application XYZ to project/cast/extend/send it to the big TV (via
its PC, of course). All of them discuss whatever was on her mind, and five
minutes later, she closes application XYZ and the office goes back as it
was before. Fred wants to do the same, and he does. Actually all of them
They asked me what is XYZ.
I was thinking on a member of the VNC family, but what they want to do is
the reverse of what one normally do with VNC. To make things more...
interesting? XYZ must never go out of the corporate LAN and if it were Open
Source, the better.
Any ideas on XYZ?
PS. Erm... one last thing. If there's a solution, could it include sending
the audio as well?
This is weird.
Software Updates on the Control Panel says that there are 39 updates
But when I run dnf update it says "Nothing to do". What gives?

This is happening every few minutes since I updated today:
Jul 30 18:26:21 Bree kernel: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000288
Jul 30 18:26:21 Bree kernel: IP: [<ffffffff8120f034>] __kmalloc_node_track_caller+0x1c4/0x320
Going to try booting the previous kernel.
I was luck enough to be bitten by this issue (
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1212907 ) when attempting to do
a clean install of F22. I copied all of my data off and then tried manually
setting things up as separate partitions (instead of in an LVM) but it kept
telling me that /boot couldn't be on a LUKS partition. The config I had was
/home was encrypted and / was encrypted but then the biosboot partition was
not encrypted, and all 3 were standard partitions. Is this something that's
just not supported? Or was I doing something wrong?
