Sometimes with F23, after some hours, I can't switch from X to tty
consoles (ex, with ctrl+alt+f2). Consoles are frozen, I can switch only
to tty1, from which I started X with startx. All F23 kernel versions are
concerned, now kernel-4.4.7. Same problem happens with xfce4, fluxbox or
Enlightenment-0.20.x. I don't use any display manager like lightdm, gdm,
I should know, but can't think of it: how do I get Yumex on
F23xfce to use rpmfusion (and ELRepo if it can)??

Remember I know little (precious little!) of this.
After this morning's dnf upgrade of

I would like to configure claws to

I have F22 on my son's Optiplex 780 ultra-small form factor. We seem to
have a variety of (maybe related) power management issues.
First, the fan often goes full-speed and starts making lots of noise.
Usually this is when the computer is actually doing more work, like running
Minecraft. Sometimes it happens when watching Youtube videos. Since these
are the two main things he does with the computer, it pretty much always
Second, when this happens, and he then suspends the computer, the fan stays
on during suspend. It never quiets down. So I don't think the computer is
Third, if I hibernate the computer, the fan shuts off, but the computer
actually shuts down--when he returns from hibernation, he has to log in to
a new session, his apps have all shut down, etc.
I used to use this computer (several years ago--it was probably F16, maybe
18) and I don't recall these issues, so I believe they must be fixable.
I tried installing TLP, not expecting much from it on a desktop, but
figuring it wouldn't hurt, and it didn't appear to change anything.
Any advice about where to start with this?
It seems if I plug in an external projector, using displayport with a vga
adapter, I can only get the resolution choice detected if I reboot.
Using kde/settings/display+monitor, the resolution is unavailable, unless I
I newly upgraded one of my machine from F22 to F23 (Gnome) and got
I start the machine and login. Open a terminal and do what I need to do
( update, ... etc). Then I left it idle for awhile. The screen locks.
Later after couple of minutes I tray to unlock it and if the idle time
is short nearly always I succeed to log in. Otherwise I get the login
menu and can select user to login. The problem it that when I have typed
in the password I come again to the login menu. I can switch to one of
the VT (virtual terminal) and login there, but if I try to switch back
either nothing happens or I get login menu but can't login.
I have search for this but has not found exact same problem. There is a
reported bug which describe similar problem:
But any workaround given there didn't help.
My questions are:
- Have someone else seen this?
- How to troubleshoot?
- Do I open new bug report?
I am running Fedora 23 and am trying to install a package:
$ sudo -E dnf install moserial
Waiting for process with pid 1862 to finish.
This message never clears. ps does not list pid 1862. A reboot does not clear the problem.
How can I fix this please?
