I am planning on running a Virtual Private Network from my Fedora
firewall out to a UML virtual colo (running RH9) at another site.
That site will be the place I present services to the world;
httpd, ssh, sftp, smtp. This is to comply with the "no servers"
and dynamic ip restrictions on my Comcast connection to the net;
if my firewall always drives an outbound connection to the
colocation site, I am not worried about changes of ip address,
and I am not opening any inbound ports.
There are a number of options for the VPN - the most attractive
are cipe ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
and FreeSwan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ ), though I am told that
one can do all this through an ssh tunnel. I would rather have
simple and secure than super-duper; I have plenty of bandwidth,
and will send outbound http and smtp from the firewall, so the
main bandwidth user will be incoming spam/b/b/b/b mail.
Anyone have some experiences to share about setting up VPN? Is
there anything about either cipe or FreeSwan that is likely to
break with FC1 or FC2?

while using "Files", the explorer application (version 3.28.1-stable) in my
Fedora 28 system, I have sometimes this kind of problem:
- I normally use what should be "list view" with list of file names
- if I have to paste a file/dir or group of copied files/dirs into a
location where the page listed is full (no blank space inside it), it seems
that I cannot paste: the right mouse click doesn't offer the paste option.
In these cases I temporarily switch to what should be "icon view" and in
this case I always have some blank space because of how items are displayed.
I select a blank space and then right-mouse --> paste
Then I come back to list view...
Is this a sort of bug or what?
Based on this link
I should have "paste" option in menu, but it doesn't happen, see screenshot:
NOTE: keyboard shortcut ctrl+c and ctrl+v works, though
Thanks in advance.
I have recently begun to use again gnome session and I have reinstalled
I see that nautilus depends on tracker and so the reinstall put in tracker
and its things
And this morning in my F28 system with SSD disk (I don't imagine on a
normal sata based environment) I had to kill tracker-extract and
tacker-miner processes because they hogged my cpu for several minutes..
Searching with google I found different info about disabling (or at least
calm down) tracker, but they all seem not updated, in the sense that
several commands/services are not present in my f28 environment.
Any pointer about configuring and/or disabling it?
Thanks in advance,
I get *Failed to start Load Kernel Modules* during the boot.
Everytime Kernel is updated VirtualBox modules fail I have to reboot into
the new Kernel, run the following commands and then it starts working.
$ sudo akmods --force
$ sudo dracut -v -f
$ sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
Then everything starts working again and the boot error goes away. You can
found the background of the issue in the link below.
My question is how can I automate this task.
(after a looong time not using Fedora, just back to it!)
I've tried installing Fedora on a Zotac Zbox CI327 (Intel Celeron
N3450 inside) but this happens to fail. I've tried F25 but it has
not the right kernel to make it (I've read about 4.10 minimum), then
tried F26-Alpha-1.7 Live and Rawhide-20170518 Live but none could
reach the graphical login. They both boot, some steps take a lot of
time and I end up in a state I don't understand but which is not
Here's a link to a rdsosreport.txt file generated using Rawhide, I must
admit that I don't know what to do now..
BTW, I could install and run a Ubuntu 17.10 daily
(artful-desktop-amd64-20170519.iso) - wow it starts up pretty quickly -
and that gave me hope!
Any hint or experience w/ such hardware?
So... I did a "sudo dnf upgrade" and things seemed to do well.
However, when I rebooted, it hangs on bootup with the statment "Holding
until bootup processes complete" or something like that -- I'm doing
this from memory. I tried with a couple of older kernels, but they also
I assume that this is some transient thing associated with the upgrade.
Over the years, I've had glitches appear on an upgrade and disappear on
the next upgrade. Accordingly, I'd like to boot into rescue mode and
see if I can upgrade again.
However, I've forgotten how to turn on wifi networking from rescue mode.
Can anybody point me to a tutorial?
Ever since Fedora(27) released a 4.17.x kernel, my MacBook Air (7,1)
is no longer able to boot at all. It hangs when trying to use the
NVMe disk controller:
nvme nvme0: controller is down; will reset: CSTS=0x3, PCI_STATUS=0x810
and the entire boot process eventually times out completely. If I
return to using the last 4.16.x kernel (4.16.14-200.fc27.x86_64), then
the problem does *not* reproduce, and everything boots normally.
i opened a bug for this problem:
however, I'm surprised that no one else has run into this issue. Any
ideas or suggestions?
