I thought that something had been done to stop this continual parking
and waking of the hard drive on laptops, in recent Fedora releases. In
the past, I added a hdparm command to /etc/rc.local, but I was under the
impression that laptop installations were meant to be a bit smarter
about this, later on.
It's annoying to hear it going click/whirr every few seconds, and is
going to prematurely wear out the drive. Not to mention that there's
zero point in putting a drive into standby if you're only going to keep
poking at it every few seconds. And, quite frankly, I don't see why the
OS should be doing that, either.
This is on a fairly basic new install. I haven't intentionally

This morning I had some time spent trying to get my Dell XPS 13 9550 to
output to three displays. Using the thunderbolt/USB-C Dell 3100 dock, and
HDMI cable/monitor and a DP to mini-DP/monitor. But my question is, during
this fight, I attempts to run the laptop with the lid shut. Outputting to
the two external displays, powered up by power button on the dock. Long
story short it did not work.. but what's weird is that I raised the lid
ever so slightly and could tell that it was on.
Now if the system senses the lid when it shuts to suspend.. why not in this
case? Could this have anything to do with the hybrid graphics?
I have a separate /var partition. In logs I get this message:
var.mount: Directory /var to mount over is not empty, mounting anyway.:
I mounted my / partition on /mnt and could see that some directories
lib/hp where present in /var, hp being empty...
I deleted those directories but at next boot, these directories
reappear. So something creates those directories before /var is mounted
at boot time.
What is it? And how to change this?

For a few days, I've been experiencing something annoying:
I use F25 with KDE (nouveau driver). Sometimes, when I leave my
computer alone for some time (say 10-15 minutes), when I come back,
the screen is full black.
Nothing responds to keystrikes or mouse movements.
The only thing that works is to log to a console windows blind with
Ctrl+Alt+F2, then login as root without seeing anything (still black
screen) and type reboot.
This happened twice in the last 2 days.

Something has changed and replies don't automatically go to the list
If you set the monitor configuration to have the two external monitors
on and the laptop screen off, what happens when you push the power
button on the dock? Hybrid graphics cause a lot of problems, so that
could be an issue as well.
kind of a wide-open question, but i'm updating both an intro and
advanced git course, and as i teach them both on fedora, i'm
interested in which of the large number of *additional* git-related
fedora packages people find useful on a regular basis.
yes, i realize there are a *ton* of additional packages, but
students are regularly asking me how to do things that aren't
immediately supported in git, so i decided to throw together a short
list of what they would do well to install along with the standard
ideally, i'd like pointers to packages that allow git users to do
*additional* things but still in a git-friendly way, and not packages
that require people to drastically rethink their workflow so that it
starts to deviate from the normal way one uses git (if that makes any
thoughts? lines are open, i'll collect the best suggestions and add
it to a wiki page.

There appears to be a pretty serious confirmed emacs bug which has been fixed in the release candidate or by rebuilding emacs 25.1 without ralloc.o. See
Hopefully 25.1 can be rebuilt as per the bug report and also hoping that 25.2 will be released soon and Fedora can get it.
Till then, I guess using the rawhide version is an option.

I have a Fedora 25 installation that was setup originally with server
installation and have since added gnome desktop package groups and others.
On the console I get a standard non-graphical login prompt and from
there I can type startx and get into gnome just fine.
I don't want to change that.
I do want to use VNC to connect in over net and run gnome. I have
everything setup but when I connect into the VNC I initially got a blank
screen. I can get more than a blank screen by changing my local user's
xstartup script. For example if I add "gnome-terminal &" I'll have a
gnome terminal up on the blank screen just fine. I can add vncconfig
-iconic and that will be up as well.
However there is no window manager running so I can't move these windows
and while I can start other applications from the gnome-terminal I have
up I don't get the graphical icons available to click on to start programs.
Clearly I can not seem to get a window manager to startup.
I tried the default xstartup:
and another example called xstartup.gnome-try:
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vns/startup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $Home/.Xresources
if test -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ; then
eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax -exit-with-session`
echo "D-BUS per-session daemon address is: $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS"
Like I said if I add lines like
vnccnfig -icon &
Before any of the exec lines those apps seem to be running.
Just no window manager.
Any pointers would be appreciated.
I want to keep the console with an ASCII login and then use startx to
get a GUI from the console, but I want to also be able to get a GUI via VNC
