I am curious to know what is the utility of gnome-keyring: I stored a
password for msmtp using secret-tool, and going to
.local/share/keyrings/ I can read this password clearly stored in a
file in this directory.....
So, there is absolutely no secret!
Thank you for lights.
PS. Why is secret-tool not working for root?

There was a time when you could go to the terminal and type in "sudo
nautilus" and you'd get the file system to open with root powers so that
you could do things and manipulate files. This seems to have been
removed / stopped / taken away? So how do I gain the ability to work on
files / folders or directories now? Can anyone point me in the right
For the last umpteen years, I did this in /etc/rc.local:
su tim -c "/usr/bin/fetchmail -d 900"
And likewise, for several other users, but with different time periods
to minimise overlaps.
But that won't work, anymore. The log returns:
rc.local: fetchmail: open: /home/tim/.fetchmailrc: Permission denied
My /home/tim permissions always were, and always will be:
drwx------. 24 tim tim 4096 Jul 10 21:23 tim
I won't be making the permissions more permissive.
So, how do I do something equivalent? (That auto-starts the fetchmail
daemon going any time the server is booted, and doesn't require the
user to log on.)
Whenever I do an dnf update, I run tracer to see what action I need to
take. This morning it informed me to run:
sudo systemctl restart dbus-broker
I did and it seemed to crash everything. Lost my gui, went back to the
console log. Had to power off and start anew.
I have an older fedora install that I need to upgrade. It has 8 Intel
SSD 520 Series 240GB disks in there now, mounted on root using an LSI
SAS 9260-8i controller. There is about 1.3TB usable space.
I need to upgrade it to add more space. If I bought eight 512GB SSDs,
how do I calculate how much usable space I would have after
partitioning/formatting using XFS? Can I safely use XFS on the root
My strategy to upgrade the system using the eight new 512GB SSDs would be:
- Add two regular 2TB disks as RAID1 to the existing system
- Copy the 1.3TB of user data onto it
- Remove the eight existing 240GB SSDs
- Install the eight new 512GB SSDs
- Install fedora30 onto the new system
- Migrate the old configs from backup onto the new system
- Mount the two RAID1 drives onto the new system
- Copy data from RAID1 array to new system
Do I need to migrate the RAID1 config, or will mdadm figure it out on its own?
Anything else I should watch for?
on my fully updated F29 system the call
dnf system-upgrade --skip-broken download --refresh --releasever=30
gives the error:
Problem: package python2-rpkg-1.58-5.fc29.noarch requires python2-cccolutils, but none of the providers can be installed
- python2-cccolutils-1.5-9.fc29.i686 does not belong to a distupgrade repository
- problem with installed package python2-rpkg-1.58-5.fc29.noarch
Some days ago on an similiar system this doesn't happen.
