Trying to kickstart a Dell R630 with ten total Ethernet ports, I see
Starting installer, one moment...
anaconda 23.19.10-1 for Fedora 23 started.
* installation log files are stored in /tmp during the installation
* shell is available on TTY2
* when reporting a bug add logs from /tmp as separate text/plain
18:03:37 Not asking for VNC because of an automated install
The dots continue "forever".
/tmp/ifcfg.log ends with a series of lines like this (where the last
character varies from 0..9),
18:03:40:558 DEBUG ifcfg: IfcfFile.read
/tmp/program.log ends with a series of lines like,
18:03:38.616 DEBUG program: Return code: 0
18:03:38.619 INFO program: Running... udevadm settle --timeout=300
The files in /tmp are not growing though it has been more than 20
minutes since the process started. On some attempts, the dots continue
all night. Other identical machines have been successfully installed
using the exact same procedure.
Does anyone know the possible cause of this issue?
Has liveusb-creator been replaced by Fedora Media Writer?
I'm having difficulty installing Knoppix on a stick with the latter,
although I had no problem installing an older version of Knoppix
on the same USB stick with liveusb-creator some time ago.
The copy now completes without error, but the stick is not seen
as a bootable device, and re-booting my ThinkPad T510
ignores the USB stick, and goes to the usual kernel menu.
I read that Fedora Media Writer is able to restore a USB stick
to factory setting, but I see no way to do this.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

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
Thunderbird I would like to try Claws mail.
I would like to configure claws to
display white text on a black background
but have not been able to find how to do

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
