By now we've seen a few postings that you can't customise grub the way
that it's meant to be done (by modifying /etc/default/grub) as the
processes used by "dnf update ..." ignore it.
Why doesn't this work the way that it's meant to?

How to configure Samba on Fedora25. Seems too complex.
Anybody could indicate an easy tool to configure Samba on Fedora25.
I have a Win7 32 bits as a virtual machine running on KVM.
All is working fine, but I want to share files on Fedora25 with this
Need some help, please.
Starting maybe a few days ago, holding Alt near the corner of a window and
middle-clicking, which used to turn the cursor into a window-resizer, no
longer does anything. I tried other variants (other buttons, the Super key)
and none seem to do it.
Any suggestions for how to get it back? This is F25 and I update regularly.
I am developing an iBus library , I tested with ubuntu and arch, can any
of you please give me the equivalent of these ubuntu/arch packages of
Fedora so that I can add build instruction for Fedora too ?

Hello, size of Firefox package in Fedora/CentOS is double (89M)
compared with another Linux distros, this is very huge, currently
DeltaRPM for Firefox is available only from last update to current
update! this means if the user don't/can't update the Firefox for only
one time, he needs to download huge data, this costs bandwidth and
traffic use for both the client and the repository provider this is an
acute problem, because Firefox rapid release which Fedora only offers
it, has very fast updates.
I beg you provide DeltaRPM for all minor and revision versions of
Firefox within one release, or provide Firefox ESR instead, I have
currently Firefox 54.0-2 and there is a available update for 54.0.1-1,
and if I want to keep the Firefox up-to-date I must download a very
huge package (89M) just for a minor update! this is a disastrous
situation!! I really can't continue to use Fedora if this problem don't
I'm trying to install F26 on an i386 system with a single 119Gb SSD.
It previously had F22 installed, with a straightforward partitioning scheme:
sda1 ext4 500Mb /boot
sda2 LVM encrypted, and containing /, swap, /home
I booted off Fedora-Workstation-Live-i386-26-1.5.iso, and in the
installer, I selected:
Storage Configuration: automatic
ticked: "I would like to make additional space available"
ticked: "Encrypt my data"
I then chose an encryption password, then the "Reclaim disk space"
dialogue appeared. I selected
but the "Reclaim space" button remains greyed out
The "reclaim disk space" screen shows:
disk name filesystem reclaimable space action
----------------- ---- ---------- ----------------- ------
119.2 GiB ATA ... sda (blank) 118.94 GiB total Delete
ext4 sda1 ext4 187MiB of 500 MiB Delete
fedora sda2 LVM not resizable Delete
Free space 1.3 MiB
Ay the bottom of the screen it has:
LHS: 1 disk: 118.94 GiB reclaimable space
RHS: Total selected space to reclaim: 3.24 GiB
Installation requires a total of 5.59 GiB for system data
Then there is Cancel button and an inactive (greyed out) "Reclaim space"
Any ideas how to proceed from here?
For this install I'm happy to for the current disk contents to be
completely blown away and for Fedora to partition the whole disk as it sees fit.
My get-up-and-go just got up and went.
Ultimately, my goal is to post some SWF files to Youtube.
An acquaintance created a series of screen-capture and audio-narration
video tutorials that produced SWF files, and would now like to post
them to YouTube, which doesn't appear to accept the SWF format.
I found the following suggestion  for converting SWF to MP4 using
gnash and ffmpeg, but gnash doesn't appear to be available in the
Fedora repos any more. Attempting to download the source from gnu.org
and build has lead to a couple of cycles of make errors, search for
the missing packages, reinstall, repeat and I'm hoping there might be
a better solution.
Has anyone done a similar conversion or could offer suggestions? TIA!

Attempting to terminate google chrome by clicking the "X" window decoration
closes sometimes leaves some of chrome's back end in existence. When this
happens, further attempts to start chrome fail and parts of the system lock up
in strange ways. Entering "$ chrome" into a shell locks up the shell; "^C" and
"^Z" have no effect; the process(es) can't be killed by using "kill -9
<whatever>"; if the user logs out, no login is possible and the system has to be

Has anyone else seen this? What's going on?
