/etc/crypto-policies/back-ends/opensshserver.config is the default file of
/etc/sysconfig/sshd-permitrootlogin does not exists (and we do not try to
logon as root anyway.
/etc/sysconfig/sshd : In this file the CRYPTO_POLICY= line is uncommented to
allow for more cyphers. (I try to connect from a machine with not the newest
cyphers (yes I know the risk))
It used to work on a F30 system, which crashed and is now fresh installed
with F31. Can it be that I have to add more cyphers to the
/etc/ssh/sshd_conf files? (the public key from the client machine starts
with : ssh-rsa)

I'm loving Fedora 31. Kudos to the developers, testers and everyone
involved. Great work ! Much appreciated !
Sometimes when I ls in Konsole the directory is highlighted. Why is it
A long time ago, in an operating system far, far away I used a tool
called PCED. It had one really nice feature: If I had typed a command like
copy a b
it saved it, just like bash does. But when I typed
and pressed up-arrow, it would filter the history entries and show only
those that started with "copy".
I'm already using autojump for the cd command. Is there something to
provide this filter on using up-arrow to scroll through past commands?
Using Fedora 31, pam_u2f and a Yubikey5 works well after:
authselect select sssd with-mkhomedir with-pam-u2f with-sudo without-
pamu2fcfg –u[username] > ~/.config/Yubico/u2f_keys
However, from the console (without GDM, multi-user.target for example)
it does not work: Linux will ask for my password where the yubikey
should be sufficient.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
I have chrony running and pointing to my ISP's time server, not the Fedora
pool, so it's always the same NTP server.
This box is up 24/7, and I just rebooted it. And I get this, after a reboot:
Nov 23 08:53:10 shorty chronyd: System clock TAI offset set to 37 seconds
Nov 23 08:53:10 shorty chronyd: System clock wrong by -5.652285 seconds, adjustment started
Nov 23 08:53:10 shorty chronyd: System clock was stepped by -5.652285 seconds
This was a reboot, and not a shutdown.
I believe that something should be saving the system time to the hardware
clock, so after a reboot things are more or less where they are, and this
looks like is not happening. I should not have chrony adjust time by that
much after a reboot. Anyone know where to investigate this further?
I upgraded 29-> 30. Now I can't even get to the boot screen. I've made
a live usb stick, but the stick only wants to install a completely new
system. Is there any way to use the stick to troubleshoot the existing
If I had to guess the upgrade screwed up the the UEFI boot. I can boot
to bios, but not to the boot loader.
Radiotray on my machine running Fedora 31 does not output any sound.
However, everything regarding sound on my computer works fine (e.g.,
YouTube, VLC, etc.)
Thanks in advance,

My installation has a default of English (UK) but occasionally I use Japanese so I installed Japanese language support.
When using the Japanese IME one of the keyboard shortcuts is Alt+`. However, when I use this it brings up an
application switch screen.
I looked through the Settings -> Devices -> Keyboard Shortcuts but there is nothing defined for Alt+`. I also noticed
that "Switch Application" is set to Super+Tab (which works) but Alt+Tab does the same thing even though this is not
So my question is, how can I disable these unwanted keyboard shortcuts?
