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
I've been getting conflicts for a couple of days on
google-noto-emoji-fonts noarch 20170223-1.fc24 updates 5.0 M
I have no use for an emoji font, but I really wonder how
you go about creating a font that has a conflict? :-).
I mean a font is just a bunch of little pictures installed
together in their own group of data. What could conflict
with that? Just really curious.

That's a good question, but dnf isn't interested in telling
anyone what the conflict is about, it just says there is one.

brought us "Oh no! Something has gone wrong!" :-)

I've go so many messages like this from the most recent firefox that it is unusable. I have tried removing all extensions, etc. and disabling hardware acceleration, but without any improvement. Therefor I downgraded to firefox-49.0-2.fc25, which seems to be working OK. The problem appears to be known but not widespread (see e.g.https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Firefox/Gah-Your-tab-just-crashed/td-p...) and no cure seems to be available on the web.
Has anyone on the list seen it?
The system (before the downgrade) was
Fedora-25 with all upgrades installed

I'm not sure when this started, but I am unable to switch away from my
X VT (usually VT 1) to a text VT.
Actually, blind-typing shows that I am actually able to switch to the
text VT, but nothing shows up; I'm left looking at a "frozen" version of
the X VT contents.
I am using an AMD/ATI FirePro V4900 with the open source drivers.
Anyone else seeing anything like this?

While editing a file in C, I have been having emacs crash on me repeatedly. Here is the error I get:
Fatal error 11: Segmentation fault
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Any idea what I should be looking at for debugging? Btw, the error seems to be happening when I am deleting and adding characters to a long line in the file.

i am a new user here, using fedora 25 with a screen reader. Since i
use the assistive technology, i need to use a package, not one i
think, maybe two, packages from debian. The first one, adds support
for the new voice available on fedora, called, espeak-ng. It needs a
driver to communicate with my speech-dispatcher, an interface that
will provide speech using the synthesizer. Unfortunately, the driver
is not availablne in .rpm, but in debian it is available. Both debian
and rpm are using the 0.86 version of this app, so i think it is not
an issue of version. I tried alien and when installing, it said
conflict with file. I also cannot find the source package for this.
The package i mean is, speech-dispatcher-espeak-ng, available from
if anyone can convert it to rpm and i can install it, it will be great!
one of my systems suffers from a bug (BZ 1435000) in the latest 4.10
kernels in which the monitor attached to the system does not wake up
from sleep requiring me to reboot the system to recover. During the
latest updates the 4.9.19 kernel was removed from my system, and is no
longer available from the repositories. Is there any way to make this
kernel available so that I can re-install it to avoid rebooting the
system if I step away from it for a while when running a 4.10 kernel?
This issue may apply to others as well.
Any assistance is appreciated.
I often experience very slow internet surf. No idea where it comes
from, just that it started when I switched from opensuse to F25.
Today, I may have obtained a clue:
I normally use firefox.
Today I got the following issue:
- searched in google for "python os.path"
- clicked on the first linked https://docs.python.org/2/library/os.path.html
- nothing happened (tried many times)
- I removed all firefox cookies and cache -> same issue
- I removed current firefox profile and created a new one -> same issue
- I tried the search on a windows computer + firefox on the same
internet connexion -> no issue
- I did the same on fedora with konqueror -> no issue
- again with konqueror -> got an error message:
"Adresse : https://docs.python.org/2/library/os.path.html
Protocole : https
Date et heure : mercredi 22 mars 2017 16:47
Informations complémentaires : Échec de la négociation SSL avec docs.python.org"
- again with konqueror -> error message:
Date and time: Wednesday 22nd March 2017 16:47
Additionnal informations: Failure of SSL transaction with docs.python.org"
I suspect that firefox has the same error but just does nothing. What
does that mean?
