You keep mentioning that the external monitor is bright, but that is
irrelevant. There is no way for software to adjust the brightness of an
external monitor. Power saving yes, but not the brightness.
I installed kdenlive in fedora 23 gnome , kde , mate , xface . When I
frist start it . It wants me to config it . But when I get to the part
where the codeact are there no check marks or red x . So I click next
next then where it would show where it would find the software like vlc
. But there no ckeck mark or where the red x Where is should be . But if
I try it on arch , ubuntu . It works just fine ..

Does your laptop have an ambient light sensor? I had one go bad on an Acer laptop that
would cause trouble. In my case it was flaky and would randomly dim/brighten. It has
been a while now, but I think I had to short it out to get things working well.

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

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?
Running F23, mate desktop and compiz.
Each time I login the three volume keys on my
keyboard cause no action. If I go into the
either as a CLI or the System->Preferences menu
and immediately exit the keys work as expected.
Can anyone suggest a way to activate the volume
keys automatically on login?

Naturally the "correct" answer is not to mix source and package installs on
a package based system.
Why did you feel a need for CTAN?
The best of the bad options are:
Grab the texlive srpm and adapt it to your version (do note that the spec
for it is hideous).
Create an empty meta rpm that has no files contents but provides the
texlive stuff so the dependency chain isn't broken and you don't have to
custom install edited versions of a bunch of packages.
The latter is the best bad option, but there will be no texlive updates and
packages that expect a particular version or path may misbehave with your
I have this system that I have been using that was running Fedora 21.
I just updated it today (Monday) to Fedora 22. It is an old Dell
Optiplex GX620 with two 2TB disk drives set up with two partitions
each in a RAID One configuration. LVM2 runs on top of the second
partition with several logical volumes. This system had been running
just fine before I did the upgrade. After the upgrade, the system will
not boot using one of the new Fedora 22 kernels. It boots just fine
using one of the old Fedora 21 kernels that did not get replaced during
I can get the system up using one of the new kernels, but I have to
wait until it stops at a Dracut prompt. I then manual run "mdadm --
assemble --scan" to get the RAID One partitions assembled, and "lvm
vgchange -a y" to get the Volume Group built. After that, I issue an
"exit" and the system completes the boot process. I need to figure out
why this system will not boot without intervention. Any suggestions
would be appreciated.
I have tried to rebuild the initramfs with dracut, no joy doing that.
Here is some of the data:

I'm running Fedora-24(beta)/KDE,
and sendmail/email (through KMail) is failing.
When I try to send email I get the warning "Failed to transmit message",
and journalctl has the entry
"sendmail.service: PID file /run/sendmail.pid not readable (yet?)
after start: No such file or directory".
I've checked, and sendmail.pid is in place:
[tim@william ~]$ sudo cat /run/sendmail.pid
/usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q1h
Googling for the journalctl entry,
I see people have been encountering this problem for years.
But I haven't seen any solution offered.
Several of the comments suggest that it is a systemd problem.
If anyone can offer advice, or even elucidation, I should be most grateful.
