journalctl -f shows the following lines appearing in the log every five
seconds. Can anyone tell me whether this is important, and if so how to
fix it, and if not, how to stop this noise filling the journal up?

"There's something wrong with our bloody ships today, Chatfield."
-- Admiral Beatty at the Battle of Jutland, 31st May 1916.
Testing using Fedora Desktops w/ FreeIPA server and found that
plugging in domain and username for my FreeIPA server resulted in
error of " Couldn't connect to the ipa.xxxxxxx.xxx domain: Cannot find
KDC for realm "IPA.XXXXXXX.XXX".
Since F29 no longer gives option to give password for root in
Anaconda.(Yet another follow the Ubuntu-ites, like getting rid of the
mail server instead of configuring it for local mail, and configuring
the first user to get get system mails in Evolution), I had to create
an account just to install freeipa-client.
So Fedora cannot connect to FreeIPA ( ie Redhat IdM) out of the box.
Seems to me that there is an issue here.

Ah! That's it. I must have missed that in the GNOME3 release notes.

I will definitely do that. Thanks, Hans!
I confirm that both the two-finger click and using tweaks work.

Dell Inspiron 5558, upgraded from F28 to F29 and all seemed well, until I
noticed right mouse button on trackpad was not registering. With a cordless
Logitech mouse plugged in, right-mouse clicks bring up the appropriate
Running the "mouse and touchpad" app under devices in GNOME Settings show
both right and left mouse clicks detected as a primary button.
Tested GNOME on Xorg and Wayland.
I'd welcome suggestions on what I might try or look at for troubleshooting.

My son recently built his own computer and still needs Windows 10 for some
games so when get got a new 2TB HD he installed Windows.
This weekend I walked him through installing Fedora. We resized the NTFS
partition and grabbed about 500GB for Fedora. The installation went
Upon reboot there was no GRUB menu. I know it's supposed to be hidden by
default but not if there are multiple OS's installed.
First nit... I wanted to turn off the hidden menu. I knew from a previous
list email and BZ that you shouldn't edit grubenv directly so I tried to do
it what I thought was the RIGHT way...
When I tried the logical way
# grub2-editenv set menu_auto_hide=0
I got an error. I thought it was odd but after looking at --help the
command goes at the end so I did:
# grub2-editenv menu_auto_hide=0 set
# grub2-editenv create
Now the grubenv only contains hashes. All the options are gone. Looking
Apparently if you don't want to specify the filename you need to use "-",
# grub2-editenv - set menu_auto_hide=0
Next the bigger problem:
I tried running grub2-mkconfig into a temporary file and OS prober is not
finding the Windows installation.
Going to check if both are booting UEFI or not... Could be the problem.
Fedora 29, x64
Heads up: if you read a zero length *.mp4 file with VLC, the error
windows will pop up, start to shimmer, eventually kill VLC,
and you will get Logged out -- losing everything you had open.
You can log back in, but nothing seems to work quite right until
I am not reporting it to VLC as they act like such jerks
when you do.

I am running user in old fashion
I wanted that a user be able to do:
mount /dev/mapper/VolGrpUsr_DK0-home /mnt/USB
With visudo, I did
pdupre localhost=/usr/bin/mount /dev/mapper/VolGrpUsr_DK0-home /mnt/USB/
(pdupre is also member of pdupre
I tried also
%pdupre localhost=/usr/bin/mount /dev/mapper/VolGrpUsr_DK0-home /mnt/USB/)
But it does not work
/usr/bin/mount /dev/mapper/VolGrpUsr_DK0-home /mnt/USB
mount: only root can do that
sudo /usr/bin/mount /dev/mapper/VolGrpUsr_DK0-home /mnt/USB
[sudo] password for pdupre:
pdupre is not allowed to run sudo on Teucidide. This incident will be reported.
I also tried to put pdupre as member of wheel, but it does not help.
Where is my mistake?
