I have a small server that offers a number of directories over NFS. I
am running a virtual machine on another physical machine.
When I try to mount an NFS directory on the VM, the NFS server refuses,
claiming a bad port. Successive tries result in different reported
What is going on? Is there some sort of virtio setting I am missing?
NFS works fine to the machine hosting the VM, but not to another

Slightly off-topic ... a Dutch planner comparing cycleways in Holland and
Australia said that in Holland the cyclists are protected by barriers like the
parked cars or even a gutter in the least. Yet in Australia we protect the
parked cars by the cyclists.

Everywhere I go that uses useless flash, I get an error saying my flash
version is out of date. When I look for an update from Adobe (i.e. back
ported security fixes), there isn't one. I'm already running the latest
release for Linux.
Did Adobe drop the security updates to flash sooner than they promised?

It would appear that the LXC config option for the container,
lxc.automount, determines whether or not LXC decides to mount devtmpfs on
/dev. When lxc.automount = 1, it is obviously on and always does this.
After digging through the LXC code, if the option is not specified, LXC
autodetects whether or not systemd is used inside the container. If it is
detected, LXC automatically turns automount on. (I wish this had been
documented somewhere.) So to stop LXC from mounting /dev, one has to
explicitly set lxc.automount = 0..
However, this causes problems inside the container, causing it to freeze on
boot. It would appear that systemd within my CentOS container is still
trying to mount /dev when it can't. I believe that I have all of the udev
services masked properly, so this must be coming from somewhere else within
systemd. Any further ideas out there?
$ sudo lxc-start -n c7
Failed to mount devtmpfs at /dev: Permission denied
Failed to mount cgroup at /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd: Permission denied
[!!!!!!] Failed to mount API filesystems, freezing.
This is possibly a hardware issue rather than a Fedora problem, but I
thought I'd bring it up anyway:
I have a Bluetooth mouse connected via a BT dongle. The dongle normally
sits on the back of my cpu case on the floor beneath my desk, but I've
noticed this often produces lag in mouse movement, presumably caused by
interference from the desk's metal frame (BTW it took me months to
figure this out). I bought a USB extension cable (cheap Amazon Basics
model) and now have the dongle sitting above the desk and the lag
problems have gone.
So far so good. However now when I suspend the system and try to
restart it, nothing will happen until I physically remove the dongle
from the extension cable. The screen will then come back to life and I
can plug the dongle in again to get the mouse working. This never
happened when the dongle was directly connected to the cpu.
Do I need to get a better cable? If not, what can I do?
Very Dumb Question :
I've just installed F 23, and failed to tell it to use xfce; how
do I fix that?? (I seem doomed never to find anything in Gnome 3.)

Remember I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
In gnome, I can control the maximize and minimize buttons (titlebar
button in windows), but these button (as well as the exit/close x button)
never appear the sub windows.
By click right on the mouse, on the title bar, I get a list of options.
However, I would like to have a direct access to the close option.
Thank for your help.

I do not know why it doesn't work for you. I have no sym link in ~/.mozilla/plugins just

After upgrading the kernel to 4.4.x series, it takes my laptop a long
time to shut down without intervention.
Sometimes I see a status saying something like "wait job is running for
user ... (1m 30sec)"
But a lot of the time I just see the bootup log with "Starting Switch
Root..." being the last line
I noticed one way to shut down is to use sysrq shortcuts (R,E,I from
REISUB combo) -- obviously that's not a perfect solution..
Laptop has dual graphics, if that makes any difference.. Intel+Nvidia
Not sure if filing a bug would even help, most of them just get ignored
I have a nuc6i5 where I have 2 SSD disks.
The M.2 one (250Gb) is seen as sdb, while the sata one (500Gb) as sda.
Initially I have installed f23 on the one seen as /dev/sdb and I presume
the boot loader has been installed on it, correct? How to check?
In a second moment I installed CentOS 7.2 specifying its new partitions
still on the second disk (I plan to use the first as data disk only).
With my surprise CentOS 7 made all in a fantastic way, in the sense that
during the partitioning part it recognized the fedora 23 partitions and its
lvm parts and without asking anything (actually there was no option to
manage grub configuration at all...) it configured its (I think) grub2 so
that the menu contains also the fedora 23 lines (normal one and one labeled
as "Advanced options for Fedora 23...") and they work as expected
So far so good, it went better than I imagined...
Now I have a kernel update proposal for Fedora 23 and I have not applied it
because I don'tknow if it can break anything or not (eg replace grub
configuration or so on...)
ANd the same doubt would be when a CentOS 7 new kernel will be available.
For both the OSes I configured a (different) /boot partition, if this can
be of any importance.
BTW: lastly I would like in the near future to install also the free
version of ESXi to make some tests with it and with oVirt (planned to be
installed on the CentOS 7 OS part), while the Fedora 23 part would be to be
used as a pure desktop one (that already is in place and works like a
