I bought a bunch of 16G thumb drives to keep o/s ISOs on. Since most of
the ISO's use 1.1G or less I'd like to reclaim the unused space.
Since the ISOs copy onto the raw drive, I don't think partitioning is an
option. dd can copy data on and off but I'd like something more
generally usable. Anybody think of a way to put a filesystem onto one
of these things starting at e.g. 2G? If so, how could/would it be made
accessible to file managers like thunar, nautilus, cli tools, etc.
Thanks to any takers,
I know.. off topic questions are usually frowned upon!
I was curious as to why the following wget returns a 403/forbidden. The
base url is accessed via the ff/chrome browser.. As far as I can tell/see,
the cmd should match what the network is seeing regarding the

I have problem with mail from crond. I have cron job which sends mail to
root. I get following line in /var/log/maillog:
Apr 8 15:00:03 lea sSMTP: Invalid response SMTP server
I have google this and have not found any solution that works for me. It
worked very well before Fedora abandoned sendmail. I understand that I
should configure /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf but has not got it working.
I just want to be able to send mail between my user on my server :-)
How do I do that?
I had an raid1 partition with ext4 on it which was empty.
it was /dev/md124 which was made up of /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1, I decided
to change this to be a btrfs partition.
Initially I figured I'd simply unmount /dev/md124 and simply do a
"mkfs.btrfs -f -L home2 /dev/md124" and remount the partition, however
after doing some reading I believe btrfs supports raid1 directly without
using the software raid driver md (?).
so I then tried "mkfs.btrfs -m raid1 -d raid1 -L home2 -f /dev/sdb1
/dev/sda1" and something was successfully created but this is where I am
confused, is this truly a raid1 partition? secondly mounting this
partition I simply specify something like "mount /dev/sda1 /mntpoint".
I can see -
# btrfs filesystem show
Label: 'home2' uuid: 635be1e8-31d2-4b5c-b81c-1ec2cd8d9101
Total devices 2 FS bytes used 664.00KiB
devid 1 size 376.46GiB used 2.01GiB path /dev/sdb1
devid 2 size 376.46GiB used 2.01GiB path /dev/sda1
To me this looks like two different partitions but I maybe wrong, so
assuming it is one raid partition how would I go around having this auto
mounted in /etc/fstab? I would assume this entry -
UUID=635be1e8-31d2-4b5c-b81c-1ec2cd8d9101 /home2 btrfs defaults 0 0
but I'm looking for some confirmation first that I actually have a raid
partition and I've done everything correctly first.
Lastly if I'm reading correctly the system will NOT automatically mount a
degraded array, how can I force it to automatically mount on a reload even
if the array is degraded.
This is on GNOME.
Is there a way to disable the middle button? It's completely
unworkable for me with an Apple magic mouse, which has no discrete
buttons. It just has regions, and where my finger naturally resides,
about 30% of the time it gets interpreted as a middle button click.
This pastes garbage when I do it in Terminal, and it causes tabs to
inexplicably vanish in Firefox. So it's really unworkable but I can't
figure out any way in the UI to disable it.
Hi Fedora community,
I have Fedora 23 and am using the default Gnome 3 desktop environment.
I have two wi-fi networks within reach of my laptop and Fedora always
auto-joins with the network with a weaker signal. I believe it is
choosing to do so because the weaker signal is the one I first provided
a password for months ago.
I have not been able to determine a way to set the wi-fi network
auto-join order preference. Is it possible to change the preference order?
Thanks for any tips,
Hi guys, i'm looking for the path of the kernel config.gz on the livecd, i
thought it was in /proc/config.gz but there is nothing there.
Since i assume this is a mandatory file even for the live os it has to be
on the system, any idea where it is? I googled it but all my research
points the /proc/config.gz
I need this file to make a diff with my arch config.gz so i can customize
it the fedora way and improve my vga passthrough gaming performances.
Have a good weekend
The system is a newly assembled and installing Fedora 23 from live DVD is
its first use. The processor is Skylake (I guess that might matter).
GPT partitioning and UEFI firmware are being used.
Fedora 23 installation seems to work fine until it says that it is
installing the bootloader. At this point, some error message is probably
produced but it gets completely lost in SPAM from journald.
The desktop becomes unresponsive. All the consoles are filled with
messages like this:
[TIMESTAMP] systemd-journald[PID]: Failed to write entry (N items, N bytes), ignoring: Read-only file system
In one of the many attempts to install, there was a message about an
I/O error. But it didn't seem to say anything beyond ERRNO=5.
Before the desktop becomes completely unresponsive, it is unable to launch
any programs (including GNOME Terminal).
I assume that journald is trying to log to a RAMdisk. This shouldn't
be a problem: the system has 32G of RAM.
Is there a way to stop journald messing up the record with its own
(possibly recursive) complaints? That would help us figure out what the
original problem is.
- installing to HDD vs SSD
- pre-partitioning with gparted vs specifying partitions to the
installer vs giving the installer a free had at choosing the partitioning.
A subsequent Ubuntu installation succeeded. I don't know which
version. But Fedora 23 is preferred.
(I'm not present for all this -- I'm helping via phone. So I might easily
be missing some important observation.)
I have a couple of epson printers that use google cloud. I can print to
them from chrome. I need to add them as system printers to cups so other
apps can print.
But suddenly it's stopped working. If I try to delete the printers from
cups, and then re-add them:
Error adding: EPSON_XP-410_Series_EPSONE5B487 (1280, u'server-error-
Error adding: EPSON_XP-420_Series_EPSON3E7898 (1280, u'server-error-
Is there any other solution?
