I have a Garmin Fenix 5 watch. When I plug it into a Windows box it gets
recognized as an E: drive with a FAT filesystem and I can see lots of
When I plug it into a Fedora 29 machine updated all packages just
yesterday it doesn't seem to automount anywhere and I haven't been able
to identify if it gets a device name that I could use to mount it.
Has anyone tried to mount a Garmin Fenix 5 smart watch ?
Pointers recommendations or suggestions appeciated.
Dear Fedora Community,
I have been using Evolution client for many years now and it seems that after
each upgrade Evolution is getting more greedy for memory, I was humble when it
use to consume 2GB of RAM but now I have seen it consuming up 8GB of RAM which I
believe is not normal.
I restarted evolution a few hours ago and it's already at 4+ GB, does anyone
know if there is a way to manage the memory consumption of this application?
Below is it's consumption and as I am typing this email it has already increased

Does this mean time to start searching for replacement?
Thanks in advance

I have a fedora samba server that works ok however I can't save to it
except as root. The apple users can do whatever they need, save to it
and create directories when they want. I have to run Thunar as root or
use sftp to do those things from Fedora29, actually through a number of
versions, don't remember when things changed. I don't use it often and
have just lived with the problem.
I mount it on /mnt/box48 and the problem seems to be permissions:
[bobg@Box83 ~]$ ll /mnt/
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 0 Mar 3 12:11 box48
I can't chmod it -
[root@Box83 mnt]# chmod 777 /mnt/box48
It just ignores the command.
This is not critical, just annoying, but I would like to fix it. What do
I have wrong, any suggestions appreciated.

Anyone know if there is a relatively simple way to
"fetchall" mail from one IMAP folder and "keep" mail
from a different folder without making two completely
separate "poll" entries for the same imap server in
my ~/.fetchmailrc file (basically treating the same
server like two separate servers).
On Fedora 29 (x86-64), I have trouble reading videos with OPenCV and
The script is as simple as:
video = cv2.VideoCapture(sys.argv)
And the error message is:
-> python3 test.py 170621_ch1_ROI2_20h38pt.mp4
Failed to query video capabilities: Inappropriate ioctl for device
libv4l2: error getting capabilities: Inappropriate ioctl for device
VIDEOIO ERROR: V4L: device 170621_ch1_ROI2_20h38pt.mp4: Unable to query
number of channels
warning: GStreamer: unable to query duration of stream
warning: Cannot query video position: status=1 value=0 duration=-1
I have tried with other videos formats (includng nn-patent encumbered
ones such as webp or mpeg) and got the same error.
This seems remnant of some old bugs that are marked as solved in the
fedora 25/26 timeframe. Did they reappear ? Certainly, the problem was
not here two ot three years ago...
From the opencv website, it seems that the same problem is said to be
solved when building with FFMPEG which seems to be uncompatible with
free software... But since it was working a while ago, would it be
possible to restore this functionality ?? Or at the very least to get
some understandable error message ?
Thank's a lot,
I have an oldish box which is has no NVMe support, not in form of M.2
slot, but I got that cheap PCIe M.2 adapter.
Now, I have done dd my original whole drive to NVMe, then I dd my
original drive to another small SSD, fdisk it so only boot partition
remains on this "new" SSD.
Something is obviously missing there in this simplistic approach,
although kernel boots from this new small SSD it does not load the rest
of the whole system.
I am stuck with dracut.
That would be grub or/and dracut need tweaking?
Or any other way to boot a system off a NVMe via a SSD/HDD?
many thanks, L.
