I edited GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub before I installed the most
recent kernel update. However the grub entry for the new kernel did not
reflect my changes in the updated /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Digging into this, it appears that the kernel packages run the grubby tool
which appears to be responsible for updating grub.cfg, and it does that,
apparently (not 100% sure) by cloning existing kernel entries; and the
/etc/default/grub file comes from the grub2-tool package, and grubby doesn't
know anything about it.
If I run grub2-mkconfig, it generates something completely different from
the existing grub.cfg. I have not analyzed the differences, but using the
output of grub2-mkconfig seems risky; not sure if subsequent invocations of
grubby will deal with it.
Did anyone use grub2-mkconfig before, to generate a new grub.cfg, and then
subsequently installed kernels new without grubby causing any issues?
Hi! I need to have tftp run by service not by socket (at this moment
service requires and start the socket) but even with a proper (i hope)
override and a masked tftp.socket i get:
Failed to start tftp.service: Unit tftp.socket is masked.
this is the override
[Thursday 18.01.18 00:43] root@sev : /etc/systemd/system/tftp.service.d $
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -4 -c -L -s /home.hdd/tftpd
i still have the socket as dependency :
[Thursday 18.01.18 00:50] root@sev : /etc/systemd/system/tftp.service.d $
systemctl --plain list-dependencies tftp.service | head
Does anyone know what i am missing?
Is it possible to run a graphic host on a server with no X?
I.'d like to run a few hosts like Slim Server/ LMS and Kodi, amongst others, on a headless cli server. Does such a thing make any sense at all? Obviously there'd be a "head" for Kodi, Slim Server etc, but not the server?
If you use the Serial.print instruction, no sketch can be compiled so there
is no way to have the serial monior. It seems that the bug is some month
old but no solution under way
Linux Fedora 27(Workstation)
After a recent upgrade some development web sites served from my workstation stopped working. I've narrowed it down to the php_value auto_prepend_file directive not working.
This is in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/csite.conf file:
Require all granted
php_value error_log /var/dev/logs/caiet_error_log
php_value auto_prepend_file /var/dev/csite/site/host-map.inc
The file /var/dev/csite/site/host-map.inc does not get loaded and this causes a 500 error. I've tried configuring apache as MPM = "prefork" (the new default seems to be "event"), but that made no difference.
Note that five other sites that use the auto_prepend_file directive no longer work either. All other development sites on my workstation work as expected.
Any ideas where to look further would be appreciated. Fedora 27 is fully up to date.
Just now I've spotted that any Libreoffice program is reported by top
command as using 100% of CPU time (and in fact the fans of the laptop
I'm on F27 x86_64, and this happens even with with libreoffice 22.214.171.124-1
and 126.96.36.199-2 (updates-testing).
Has anyone else noticed this behavior? Where can I look to debug it?
Ed (and anyone else who is seeing this):
This email got sent from my new email address and I apologize as I was
trying to make sure I didn't use it on fedora lists until I had it
switched in fedora's records. I am switching the from and cc (to me)
back to the current (to be old email)
Changing emails after 20+ years is madness ...

Which chipset will work for a usb wifi dongle without having to go
through the rigmarole of finding proprietary drivers and firmware?
I would like it to work right out of the box, without having to first
Is it me?? I keep three or four PCs on my desk (behind a Trendnet
KVM switch), plus other machines elsewhere; the desk trio are all running
F 27, Mate/Compiz. One old bad thing and a similar new one, irritating at
best, are happening.
The old one is that the size of my Mate Terminal, particularly
its font, often changes when I reboot. So I have to re-edit half a dozen
profiles before I can use them: the new size is usually either eye-
splittingly small to read, or so big that no ordinary sentence will stay
on a single line.
The new and worse one is that the same thing has started
happening to my panels. (I keep four, with lots of launchers on each.)
Enlarging a panel makes several launchers disappear; as it is, I have to
keep a couple smaller than I like in order to make stuff fit.
If something in my configs is doing this, what, and how can I fix
it? If it's Fedora, let me know what more data to supply, please!

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I have been trying to build Apache 2.4.29 from the source files provided
upstream (the Apache foundation doesn't provide binaries for rpm based
systems) by using rpmbuild to compile the source into various binary rpm
files that I can then install into Fedora 27. In doing this the process
identified a number of devel dependencies that needed to be installed.
One of these dependencies was DISTCACHE which does not appear to be in
the Fedora 27 repositories, nor the F26 or F25 repositories, and from
investigation on the net seems to have disappeared some time after F18.
I did find an rpm for distcache for Centos 6 which 'rpm -ivh' indicated
it successfully installed but both yumex and dnf refuse to acknowledge
its existence. To work around this I tried to do an rpmbuild --rebuild
of the distcache source rpm I had downloaded but it failed with a
dependency on SSLeah which I can find in the Fedora repositories either.
After going through all these hassles I was looking in through Yumex for
something else and found an installed package called HTTPD which it
indicates is Version 2.4.29 of the Apache Server. Given the hassles I
mentioned above, how were they worked around to build the httpd binaries?
I've gone down this path because I'm trying to do tutorials on JSF 2.2
development in Eclipse Oxygen, and I have up till now been using Tomcat
as my web server, but Tomcat doesn't appear to have JSF support out of
the box and I have been able to get adding support into Tomcat to work.
Hence I'm now trying to go down the path of using a web server that has
JSF support out of the box, which I believe Apache does, but if this
doesn't prove successful or it is too difficult to interface Apache to
eclipse I could potentially switch to Glassfish.
