I just did a new install of Fedora 29 and find the installation provides
no root password. I have a lot of configuration to do and sudo is

in the office we are using 802.1x authentication on the switches with
username/password. It was working just fine for me, but after upgrade to
Fedora29, it stopped authenticating. On the switch I don't see anything
about user/pass being wrong. In NetworkManager I am using PEAP +
user/password authentication, as before, but it just stopped working.
Anyone with similar issue?
Thanks in advance
I ran "dnf -y update" this morning. It said the last
metadata update was 8 days ago and there was nothing
I then ran "dnf clean all" and "dnf -y update" again
and it is loading 414 new updates.
What really bad setting is it consulting to think that
8 day old metadata is up to date, and where the heck do
I fix it?
I have an up to date F28 server that boots to the grub prompt. This
started after a failed dnf update.
The computer will boot to an emergency mode command prompt if I set it up
properly from the grub prompt.
grub> set root=(lvm/fedora-root)
grub> linuxefi (hd0,gpt2)/vmlinuz-0-rescue... root=/dev/mapper/fedora-root
I can get networking working
#ls /sys/call/net <- find Ethernet device is enp3s0
# ifup enp3s0
# ping www.google.com
Now update it
# dnf update
Regenerate the grub2 config file
# shutdown -r now
It still boots to the grub prompt.
Why does it boot to the grub prompt and what do I need to do to fix it ?
Hello all, I don't wanna go into a long song and dance so I'll make this
short and simple:
Running F-29 on Lenovo ThinkPad T420
I've updated and everything is running smoothly
When its first starting up?...and it shows the kernels that are
available (along with the rescue option) they're showing as
"Fedora 4.14.xx _27_ Fedora "Workstation"
Is there something I need to do to get my kernel info to reflect the
latest version of Fedora? I mean it's not a HUGE problem, since this is
just the laptop I'm trying to learn C++ and Python on....but its just
something I noticed and was curious to know if something is wrong
Thanks for any help in advance
If I want to check on how much data my computer's been putting through
my ISP over the last few days, is there anything logged by default that
I can look at, or do need to install something extra?
[tim@localhost ~]$ uname -rsvp
Linux 4.16.11-100.fc26.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 22 20:02:12 UTC 2018 x86_64

I just bought a ThinkPad P72 "mobile workstation". To see if Fedora 29
would work, I made a bootable thumb drive with the 64-bit F29-MATE spin.
It passed the self-test, but the boot stops before going into graphical
This is a new and just-released system, so it couldn't be tested before
F29 was released. Some tech details:
CPUs Two E-2186M Xeon 6-core 2.9-4.6GHz w/12MB cache
RAM 64GB DDR4 2400MHz ECC
SSD Two 2TB PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 M.2 in RAID1 (Intel on-board controller)
Video nVidia Quaddro P5200
Display 17.3" 4K (3840x2160)
Are any of these known to cause problems with F29?

Fedora server 29 minimal fresh install.
If I restart server with "reboot" the last history of working shell is
I must remember to do "history -a" to store last commands history
If I do logout the history is correctly stored.
With Centos7 minimal fresh install this behavior do not occur
Is something missing that I should install?
