Got a little problem and think I have to post it to Centos(a)cCentos.org but
I never get any reaction or answer . I understood Centos is part of Red
Had : Therefore this request .
The question is : When I post a problem and/or a question to Centos where
can I look if anyone does react or gives an answer .
I hope the question is not stupid .

and write it to an USB-stick by
livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr /home/frank/Download/Fedora-MATE_Compiz-Live-x86_64-29-1.2.iso /dev/sdc
I have a Fedora 28 system after booting this stick.
BTW, size and checksum are different from Fedora-MATE_Compiz-Live-x86_64-28-1.1.iso
What goes wrong?
I have a router connected NAS, via a USB port. it is a samba server and
works. There is a "send to" function that works for saving files and it
works well enough from various Apple devices but I would prefer to be
able to connect to it from a terminal and do thins like create
directories and add and delete files etc. in a more convenient way.
How can I do that, can it be done? There doesn't appear to be any LAN
address as with a Linux samba server? Just the router itself at the
usual 192.168.1.1. The computer runs Fedora 29 and the router a version
of dd-wrt, nether of which probably matters.

I have installed Windows 10 on my raid system as that was the only
OS the new motherboard provided raid drivers for at install time. The
install of Windows 10 was done in UEFI mode (albeit there doesn't appear
to be a UEFI partition on the ssd windows is installed to, there is only
the drive C partition, a system partition and a recovery partition) and
the bios is currently set to UEFI mode. Under windows I have installed
vmware and used the USB live install of F29 that I have (which would not
boot natively in UEFI mode) which successfully installed F29. Having
done the install every time I boot it does not display a grub menu even
though there are multiple kernels installed. In F28 there was a grub
default file with supplied initial "default" grub configurations which
other files in /etc/grub.d supplemented to build (in a bios
installation) /boot/grub2/grub.cfg, but this default file doesn't appear
to be present in F29. Looking in /etc there is a link named
grub2-efi.cfg as well as grub2.cfg, the former of which is a link to
/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg, but this .cfg file does not exist.
Assuming there is a menu with a timeout of 0 so that it doesn't display,
where do I find the grub files that will allow me to change that timeout
and configure how the grub menus will display?
Is there a way to make CapsLock a dead key? I never use this key on purpose and it's
irritating when I sometimes hit it without knowing, so I would rather have it doing

I've had for a long time a setup for (Fedora-)laptops where the laptop
has local home directories for users in /home/<username>
and in fstab the directory is mounted (when available) to NFS share on
This worked nicely until recently (F28/F29) when it seems that automount
was configured to attempt to mount /home as the user logs on (GDM).
Since this automount fails, the login is terminated despite the fact
that there is a valid /home/<username> on the fs.
So the question is: Is there anything similar in simplicity to set up as
a replacement to the current setup, or, alternatively, how does one
disable the automount from attempting to mount non-reachable NFS mounts
at login time?
I bought an SSD to replace my HDD and I used System Rescue CD to move my
EFI and boot partitions over and then used lvm tools to add the new drive
to the lvm and then remove the old one.
So all of my data is over on the new driver... but I can't boot it...
I've looked at efibootmgr and it still has an entry for Fedora, the
partition looks correct and per efibootmgr the loader name looks good...
But no matter what I do it won't boot.
So I figured it out...
Somehow the PARTUUID did change... And using system rescue CD the efivars
was mounted read only so even though efibootmgr didn't complain, it wasn't
actually changing anything.
I had to:
efibootmgr -B 0001 (which was the fedora entry)
efibootmgr -c -d /dev/sda -p 1 -l "EFI/fedora/shim.efi" -L Fedora
then it worked...
NOTHING ABOUT THIS IS INTUITIVE!
I have a pair of old Garmin RINO 120 GPSs and a gadget to connect
either of them, one at a time, to my PC, currently running F 29. For
several years I could run topo map software under WINE -- unfree software
from any, or almost any, of half a dozen vendors -- but never get any of
them to talk to either GPS. Now there is Open Street Map, a.k.a. OSM,
which I THINK runs natively under Linux.
I have studied forums and followed discussion lists (with Pan and
Gmane, since most of the content is obviously unrelated to my
questions). For years.
It seems that everyone else is a mapMAKER, and takes mere USE for
granted. I only want to use it, and only out in the woods or the desert
or the tooley weeds -- all of which, it seems, OSM does map, despite its
name. I want to get maps to scale that show things of interest to me
only, or I hope only -- things like good lunch rocks, and nests, and
particular trees, all or nearly all off any trail.
Unlike the OSM regulars, I have no advanced skills in
cartography, nor EE, nor CS. My skills and knowledge are in unrelated
All this boils down to two questions. If I install OSM under
Fedora, will it accept, incorporate, and display off-road and off-trail
data from an old GPS, either with OSM's own data, or with things like USGS
topo maps? And if it will, can an ordinary mortal learn to use it?
