So I updated both my Fedora laptops from 24 to 25, resulting in both
booting into black screens with no login dialogs and no way of going
into a console or looking at logs.
Both systems are very different. One is a Lenovo, built-in Intel
graphics support and XFCE, the other is a Dell with a AMD Firepro M5100
graphics card running Cinnamon. Yet the result is the same. I assumed
Wayland is at fault here, however I noticed both systems work fine if I
boot with an older kernel:
kernel-4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64 : works
kernel-4.8.8-300.fc25.x86_64 : nope
I had some trouble finding further info on this looking at various
forums and mailing lists, hence my message here. Any insight appreciated.
I'm having troubled setting middle
button emulation in a new Fedora25
Workstation/XFCE installation. first I
Identifier "middle button
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
as I have done in the past. then my
notes led me to "xinput" but I can't
make that work, dunno the right command ...
I find it hard to work without this
feature, especially when configuring a
new install so it is one of the first
things I fix!
What am I doing wrong?

Hy all F25 users,
I'm running F25 with gnome/X11 desktop environment, and having problems
with nautilus: I have some directories where .tgz archives are located.
Suddenly, clicking on the .tgz files will no more open them and show
their contents, but the .tgz file will be immediately unpacked into the
same dir. How to restore the old behaviour which will only open the
archive and not unpack it?
Any help will be appreciated.

I have two GNOME workstations upgraded from F24 to F25. Before the
upgrade, Dropbox and Redshift were accessible from the little slide-out
task bar at the lower left of the screen. Now, on one I see Dropbox but
not Redshift and on the other, I don't have the slide-out drawer at
all. According to GNOME Tweak-Tool, both apps are listed on the startup
So far, everything else seems to have gone smoothly.
How to debug? TIA.

updated two machines from F24 to F25, and now the fonts configured in
Applications -> Settings -> Appearance are no longer on the same level
of sharpness/clarity as they were in previous Fedora releases.
It is considerably visible in Thunderbird and Firefox. While there was
no problem to get clear and sharp fonts using antialiasing and
hinting, it now seems to be impossible, at least in programs that
adapt their fonts from the above mentioned setting.
Does anybody know what's going on and what I can do to get back
I have upgraded all my machines (3 laptops, 2 desktop warhorses) using fedup and all went smoothly. The only thing that does not work is openconnect with NetworkManager. I got the following when I looked into it.
Could not load editor VPN plugin for 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openconnect' (missing plugin file "/usr/lib64/NetworkManager/libnm-vpn-plugin-openconnect-editor.so")
Where do I get this plugin, and more importantly, why is it not pulled in with an upgrade/install?
As an aside, while very smooth, I think that the upgrade itself can do with a bit more installation before the reboot: perhaps some of the things that are applications can be installed after the other ones have upgraded and after the system has come up since upgrade during the boot process leaves the computer pretty unusable. Just a thought: I have no idea if it is possible to implement what I am suggesting (or something similar) but I want to stress again that this was a very smooth upgrade in general.
Thanks, Fedora developers!!

Apparently Nvidia has yet to release F25 drivers for the GEforce 6
series among others. Is this correct?
I'm currently using Nouveau and it's fine so far but I haven't stressed
it much and would like to have the option.
I have just completed the upgrade from F23 to F24 and rebooted to the new version.
The system now boots to console mode and I have to login and type startx to
get to KDE.
F23 started X and KDE automagically.
I also seem to have lost some libraries. e.g. the 32-bit version of
Several daemons failed to start at reboot. These include all those in rc.local
(yes. I do still have a few.) and openvpn.
Running rc.local manually works and starting openvpn manually with systemctl
What could cause these issues?
Cheers and thanks,
I'm most familiar and comfortable with iptables, and use shorewall on
my firewalls. With fedora23, it appears the default has shifted to
firewalld. This has created a problem for me ever since, particularly
with trying to build a reasonable firewall on my mail servers, as well
as interacting with fail2ban.
We typically offer submission, simap/spop, smtp, http/https, ssh, and
domain services on our Internet servers. We also need snmp and nrpe
Does anyone have a set of reasonable firewalld rules and understand
how it interacts with fail2ban that they could share? firewalld
doesn't even include all these services by default, so it's necessary
to do it one port at a time...
firewalld just doesn't seem to be appropriate for anything more than a
desktop. I'd appreciate any ideas on how you build a firewall for
fedora servers, particularly as it relates to interoperating with
fail2ban and standard Internet services.
