With the SystemRescueCd I backed up the /dev/sda6 partition in /mnt/backup/ naming "diskimage"
After backing up operation the file has the automatic extension like "diskimage.000".
Is this file ok to restore?
If I name it "diskimage.gz" then it is automatically renamed with this extension "diskimage.gz.000"
But here below
the file is name like this:
Do I have to name with the .pimg extension during backup to restore correctly?
And how can I restore it?
Something on sourceforge has been recommended to me, but I try to
stick to things that dnf can install. Surely there must be some Fedora-
native ebook reader!

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
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 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.
Mounting an internally installed disk on a laptop spins up all
disks connected to this machine via USB. And I try to prevent these
externally connected disks to spin up.
The behaviour, IIRC, started a few months ago on the previous F27 and
continues now on F28. Before that I don't remember this behaviour to
I thought it was some smartd issue, and stopped this service
("/usr/bin/systemctl stop smartd.service") - to no avail: mounting the
internal disk still spins up the external ones.
The internal disk is identified by "smartctl -d test /dev/sda" like
[ ... ]
/dev/sda: Device of type 'scsi' [SCSI] detected
/dev/sda [SAT]: Device open changed type from 'scsi' to 'sat'
/dev/sda [SAT]: Device of type 'sat' [ATA] opened
(On a side note: I'm astonished that a smartctl simple info flag is
changing some device type like shown above)
External disks are identified by a smartctl test like so:
"[USB Sunplus]: Device of type 'usbsunplus' [ATA] detected"
the other one:
"[SAT]: Device of type 'sat' [ATA] detected"
Anyone an idea about where to start investigating this issue? Where
could such behaviour possibly be set up?
Thanks in anticipation.
After an update to Fedora29 I can print but not scan anymore with a HP
officejet 4620 in WLAN.
When running HP-check I get two messages : cups required incompat : cups
may nt be installed or running .
cups is installed and running.
python3-notify2 needs to be

Has anyone the same experience ?

Does Fedora 29 support the Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) chip for
hardware RAID? My new ThinkPad P72 came with an RST chip set up with two
2TB PCIe M.2 SSDs in a RAID1 config. The Fedora-29-MATE-Compiz spin DVD
doesn't "see" it. Nor does Clonezilla.
There's a BIOS mode setting for the Intel RST: "RST" mode for RAID, and
"AHCI" mode for separate SATA drives. Changing that setting to AHCI will
probably break the RAID1 array and render the P72 unbootable. I don't know
if that would a destructive, irreversible change, or if changing the mode
setting back to RST would restore everything.
I've only tried the MATE spin. One purpose of this question is to find out
if the full installation DVD supports the Intel RST chip.

Why do I have 47 bazillion lines of this sort of stuff in my logs:

I'm using shred on some 2Tb USB disk drive that I plan to give away.
So far it has taken 8 hours to shred 50% of the drive, which implies
that it will take about 16 hours to shred the whole drive. I have
another 2 drives to go.
Is there a quicker way to protect my data when I give the drives away,
other than smashing the drives to bits?
Thanks - jon
