After an update of the kernel, the file
has not been updated.
I had to run
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
Please not that I have
/dev/sdb1 766480 18068 748412 3% /boot/efi
Is it because the boot is on sdb?
Should I run?
I also had to run
(it was set at 1).

I've got an old F9 server which has been running forever without any problems
has just failed to reboot.
I have 2 x RAID1 setup
sda and sdb are the first raid device
sdc and add are the second device.
Also, to make life even more fun I only have 4 SATA ports so I have to remove
one HDD to get the DVD to work, and the m/b doesn't support USB DVD
it looks like sda has failed - it doesn't even appear in the BIOS list.
I am currently cloning sdb before doing anything, but once that's done, I want
to replace sda and rebuild the array. From memory, I do not think that the
boot partitons could be RAID'ed back then so I'm not sure what state the boot
partition is in on sdb.
Does anyone have any instructions on how to do this based on the age of the
system? So far, Google only seems to want to give me more recent solutions.
I'm considering the purchase of an Alienware M17 to run Fedora on. Does
anyone know if it's compatible with Fedora? Specifically the wifi card
I have 2 options:
- Qualcomm QCA6174A 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2
- Killer Wireless 1550 2x2 AC and Bluetooth 5.0
Thanks in advance
I have a fedora29 workstation and frequently need a lightweight editor
to make notes, act as an interim cut buffer, and just briefly edit
documents before posting them somewhere else.
The problem is that gedit crashes, or my desktop crashes, losing all
the notes. Sometimes I have ten or so documents of differing degrees
going at once, and when it crashes (like it just did again), I lose
I need something with some kind of temporary autosave capability, like
vim, but graphical.
I'm aware of the dozens of console editors (I use vim virtually
everywhere), but need something small like gedit, without the bulk and
complexity of libreoffice.
I have installed Fedora 29 on Lenovo W540. The laptop overheats up soon

The same laptop has been tested on Windows and Ubuntu. The heating issue
was present on those operating systems.
It seems to be a Fedora specific issue. How do I go about fixing it?
Ok I have gone nuts trying to figure this out, and I'm just about ready to
just re-install the OS. (Fedora 29) I have been using Fedora since
like....version 12, and have experienced all kinds of issues but this one
baffles me. So:
I had updated from fc26 to fc27 successfully, but I have noticed that since
upgrading from 27 to 28 that the kernel versions while they have gone up
(e.g. from 3.12.203 >> 3.12.207 and these numbers I use are for example
only!) I notice that the "fc" number has remained the same (in other words
the "fc27" bit of the kernel name!) I have tried everything I have found
online from trying to upgrade the kernel through the Terminal to trying to
download, install, and compile a newer kernel version and no matter what
I've tried that part remains the same. So my last attempt/effort will be a
transfer of all my data and a complete re-install of F29. But it would be
nice to know what might have caused this...in case it happens again!

My google-chrome comes from Google itself, but that wasn't
the problem. I had added a 3rd party repository a long time
ago (UnitedRPM)...I have long since forgotten the reason, but
the ffmpeg package if was offering conflcited with the package(s)
from rpm fusion. I dumped UnitedRPM and the problem is gone.
The history of this machine is that Fedora 25 was initially installed
and then I have been using the system upgrade to keep upgrading it to
the newer release. I just upgraded it to Fedora29 two weeks ago.
I use dnfdragora GUI tool to do the patching. When I selected ALL of the
packages "to update" I got a transaction error complaining that
dnf-utils and yum-utils were in conflict on some files. When I ran it
from the command line the dnf-utils package was in a category to be
installed with a note about "weak dependency". Not exactly sure what
I figured I would apply subsets of the packages available to update but
avoid anything that looked like it had anything to do with dnf, such as
other dnf-* packages and packages referring to repositories and such. I
figured I'd come back to them later. I didn't want a dependency to pull
in dnf-utils and get me back in the problem I had.
So, I'd select a dozen or so packages in dnfdragora and apply them and
then select another group. I apparently wasn't to good at selecting
packages that didn't have dnf-* dependencies because every once in a
while one of the dnf-* files was brought in due to dependencies. Since
none ever included dnf-utils I went and ahead and selected apply.
In the end all the packages ended up applying without errors and
dnfdragora claimed everything is up to date and there is nothing to do.
When I looked dnf-utils is not installed, yum-utils still is.
So, I am confused why when I try to apply ALL the updates at once dnf
claims dnf-utils needs to be installed, but if I apply them in small
groups dnf says everything is up to date but dnf-utils isn't installed ?
I am concerned that I will continue to run into this.
Is dnf-utils supposed to replace yum-utils ?
Is this a ramification of continually upgrading the OS instead of
installing a new version and moving over my application ?
This was always my concern about upgrading OS's. Experience taught me
that an upgrade to a release doesn't leave you in the same place as a
fresh install of the same release. But, I should say I love this OS
upgrade system. It definitely made my life easier and has gone off with
little hitches. Fedora versions cycle so quickly that I would have used
a different OS for this project without it. Cudos to the team that
implemented it! But if there are minor cleanups necessary, such as
cleaning out older packages that are no longer needed and may conflict
with newer packages, that would be good to know.
