When I connect an external wi-fi card, if I switch off the internal
card, also the external card is switched off. That is not correct, IMHO.
And I remember that in F24 I had the option to switch off only one card.
Using the terminal I can switch off the card, but it doesn't work in the
Linux Fedora F25 (Workstation Edition)
on Fujitsu Lifebook A512
Got a handme down Server from MIS, it is a Dell PowerEdge 2800 with dual
processors 4G Ram and 4 130G SCSI disks. I was able to get it to install
Fedora 24 from an USB flash of the Live CD, but was having big issues with
the video. Had to add the vga=ask on kernel boot line, and eventually one of
the vga modes allowed the installer to go thru, but I had tried a number, so
not sure which one worked for that. Install process went thru just fine, and
was hoping on reboot it would resolve the video issue. The initial long in
screen showed up, but login results in a black screen. Terminal screens work
fine, and I can setup a vnc terminal with no problem.
Then ran the fedup update to 25, and that also went just fine, but still the
regular screen doesn't work. VNC also still works fine with gdm, but switched
to lightdm to see if that would fix the regular screen issue, but it didn't, and for
some reason, the VNC was just a black screen, switching back to gdm fixed
Am thinking there onboard video must be something limited, and of course
they don't have any info on the machine. Dell's response is that it is an old
unsupported machine. Have another Dell 2500 that we have had since 2000,
and it still works fine, and has Fedora 24 on it, but the 2800 is a lot different.
Not a big deal, but if some might know of settings that would make the
screen work, the VNC is fine for most things, and text screen for local stuff.

After googling this issue on upgrading fedora, working until
2:30 this morning, and not getting anywhere, I hope you guys can help.
I followed the guide:
using the gnome terminal.
things seemed to go well, until I got to the command
# dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=25
It went through the usual steps, I answered y and it completed,
but then it prompted me with an error message about google earth and
said to retry with --allowerasing, which I did, but still got the same
220.127.116.117-0.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7fac5991:
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful
You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: Public key for google-earth-stable-18.104.22.1687-0.x86_64.rpm is
So I did a gpg install for the public key of google-earth.
Same error message.
just to try I did:
#dnf system-upgrade reboot
No joy. Spent several hours googling for the error, for the
issue with gpg key, various other related lookups, but didn't find
anything that helped.

I see from devel that you solved your problem. Because you had said
you were a programmer, I had assumed you would interpret the
[google-earth-stable?] as meaning that it wasn't the actual name, and
that you should substitute the name. That's why it didn't work, not
because the package was gone (even though it was).
Having seen the successful command in devel, the command I gave
you should have been
rpm --erase --nodeps --test google-earth-stable
Since your problem is solved, I'm only posting this for completeness,
in case someone else searches on this issue.
I'm trying to install 32-bit F25 Gold (RC1.3) from the netinst, with custom partitioning. The only reason I need custom partitioning is to avoid creating a separate /home partition. Unfortunately, due to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1375732 , it won't let me expand the / partition to use the space freed after deleting /home. (This bug wasn't fixed since 32-bit is no longer a blocker.) Is there any fairly easy way to achieve this without custom partitioning in the installer? Or is it likely that an updates.img would be made available after release day to work around this type of issue?

Does anyone know why pam_pkcs11 is missing in the Fedora 25 repos?
Systems upgraded from 24 still have the 24 version and it appears to
work (at least as well as it did in 24). Newly install 25 systems
don't appear to be able to install it.
I don't see anything in the release notes or common bugs about this
and /etc/pam.d/smartcard-auth still refers to it.
I burn the iso or 25 to usb and I also did it to a dvd same error . When I
click the install I get the the part to select English . Then I click
continue . Then the install locks up it will not get past the point at all
it just set there . I also have try to re down it same thing i have tried
more then one usb drive And dvd disk
