Something on sourceforge has been recommended to me, but I try to
stick to things that dnf can install. Surely there must be some Fedora-
native ebook reader!

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I have been using ethernet up to now. I went to enable the wifi, to see
no wifi listed.
It has been too long since I have had to do this troubleshooting. Can
some point me to what I need to look at to find what the Fedora thinks
is the wifi?
I have recently begun to use again gnome session and I have reinstalled
I see that nautilus depends on tracker and so the reinstall put in tracker
and its things
And this morning in my F28 system with SSD disk (I don't imagine on a
normal sata based environment) I had to kill tracker-extract and
tacker-miner processes because they hogged my cpu for several minutes..
Searching with google I found different info about disabling (or at least
calm down) tracker, but they all seem not updated, in the sense that
several commands/services are not present in my f28 environment.
Any pointer about configuring and/or disabling it?
Thanks in advance,
Would you have a suggestion for a software capable of adding comments
in a pdf file?

I am planning on running a Virtual Private Network from my Fedora
firewall out to a UML virtual colo (running RH9) at another site.
That site will be the place I present services to the world;
httpd, ssh, sftp, smtp. This is to comply with the "no servers"
and dynamic ip restrictions on my Comcast connection to the net;
if my firewall always drives an outbound connection to the
colocation site, I am not worried about changes of ip address,
and I am not opening any inbound ports.
There are a number of options for the VPN - the most attractive
are cipe ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
and FreeSwan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ ), though I am told that
one can do all this through an ssh tunnel. I would rather have
simple and secure than super-duper; I have plenty of bandwidth,
and will send outbound http and smtp from the firewall, so the
main bandwidth user will be incoming spam/b/b/b/b mail.
Anyone have some experiences to share about setting up VPN? Is
there anything about either cipe or FreeSwan that is likely to
break with FC1 or FC2?

The Citi.com credit card website allows generating virtual card numbers, but unfortunately they're using flash in that part of the site. When I try to use it in F30, on one particular machine (it's hardware-specific), in GNOME (it doesn't happen in MATE), the Firefox tab crashes and I get a general protection fault, for example
[88812.835817] traps: Web Content general protection fault ip:7f94ee0d0adb sp:7ffedd6a3140 error:0 in libX11.so.6.3.0[7f94ee0aa000+8e000]
Since flash is involved, it's not clear whether this is the fault of Fedora or flash. This has been happening for around half a year, so flash has been updated several times. It also happened with F29. Anyone know how to narrow down where the issue is?
I have a Fedora 30 flash drive set up for dual booting
from Legacy or UEFI. It boots beautifully from UEFI.
(It also have a bios_grub partition).
It booted perfectly from both under Fedora 29.
Now when booting from legacy, it go into "System Setup".
If you press system Setup, I get a "/grub/core-system"
Remaking grub.cfg, I get
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Generating grub configuration file ...
Adding boot menu entry for EFI firmware configuration
Uhhhhh.. I wanted legacy, not EFI.
What am I missing?
References that stink:
Before installing, gparted:
Wipe the target disk
create a partition table as GPT
create a first partition as
set the partition flag to "bios_grub"
Install Fedora 29 from a UEFI machine:
"/home" was removed at installation and moved into "/"
--->>> PRESUMED !!! <<<---
The machine was install and booted from UEFI
The machine is mounted as /dev/sda
Install the legacy BIOS boot loader:
Boot into fedora on UEFI
only installs 3 files
# dnf reinstall grub2-pc
create the BIOS .cfg file
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Note: if this complains, you forgot to create the partition above
# grub2-install --removable --recheck --target=i386-pc
while using "Files", the explorer application (version 3.28.1-stable) in my
Fedora 28 system, I have sometimes this kind of problem:
- I normally use what should be "list view" with list of file names
- if I have to paste a file/dir or group of copied files/dirs into a
location where the page listed is full (no blank space inside it), it seems
that I cannot paste: the right mouse click doesn't offer the paste option.
In these cases I temporarily switch to what should be "icon view" and in
this case I always have some blank space because of how items are displayed.
I select a blank space and then right-mouse --> paste
Then I come back to list view...
Is this a sort of bug or what?
Based on this link
I should have "paste" option in menu, but it doesn't happen, see screenshot:
NOTE: keyboard shortcut ctrl+c and ctrl+v works, though
Thanks in advance.
I am working on my non-working wifi now. The last critical item (I hope).
Just installing the broadcom-wl rpm got the card recognized, and I am
seeing SSIDs, but cannot connect. Perhaps some setting needed.
So I figure to start I need to know what card F30 thinks I have. Win10's
driver for this unit is BCMWL63a.
I can't find my old notes on how to list information about the card itself.
