A few versions of Fedora ago, I got a little frustrated with the way
KDE was running on my laptop. I don't remember the actual problem,
really. I think it had to do with not being able to download and
install icons or themes or some other eyecandy; there was always some
sort of failure. The upshot was that I was more loyal to my desktop
than my distro and switched to KDEneon since it worked.
But, I've always had a soft spot for Fedora; I've been using it off
and on ever since it has existed (and Red Hat Linux or Mandrake before
that). I'm getting the itch to give it a go again, probably when 31 is
So... for the KDE users out there, how is Fedora doing with KDE
when doing an rsync of /home to a remote host with options
"--stats -av --hard-links --delete-during" I get
sending incremental file list
cannot delete non-empty directory: frank/.sylpheed-2.0/imapcache/c64.shuttle.de/frank
cannot delete non-empty directory: frank/.sylpheed-2.0/imapcache/c64.shuttle.de/frank
cannot delete non-empty directory: frank/.sylpheed-2.0/imapcache/c64.shuttle.de
This is strange because the directory does not exist
# cd /home
# file frank/.sylpheed-2.0/imapcache/c64.shuttle.de
frank/.sylpheed-2.0/imapcache/c64.shuttle.de: cannot open `frank/.sylpheed-2.0/imapcache/c64.shuttle.de' (No such file or directory)
Can someone explain that?
Kind regards, Frank
I have an nvidia graphic card and since at least f27 I had a high
resolution (1280x1024) on the console screen during the boot. This is no
more the case in f30. Why?
I use the nvidia driver from rpm-fusion, nouveau does not work with my card.

I have been trying to rescue the files from a SD card that is connected to a USB adapter, and that can not mount in the usual way because I guess it is corrupt (complains of no read-write permission even though the SD card is unlocked).
Following the instructions here:
$ sudo ddrescue -f /dev/sda SD_card_rescue.log
GNU ddrescue 1.23
Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
ipos: 322563 kB, non-trimmed: 0 B, current rate: 64000 B/s
opos: 322563 kB, non-scraped: 0 B, average rate: 1178 kB/s
non-tried: 0 B, bad-sector: 19968 B, error rate: 0 B/s
rescued: 8270 MB, bad areas: 26, run time: 1h 56m 58s
pct rescued: 99.99%, read errors: 78, remaining time: 0s
time since last successful read: n/a
However, when I try:
$ sudo losetup -f -P SD_card_rescue.img
losetup: SD_card_rescue.img: failed to set up loop device: No such file or directory
Adding the full path name for the SD_card_rescue.img does not change the error.
I looked around a bit and tried the following:
It does not per se use losetup but I still get the same error.
Any suggestions? I am on an updated F30.
Many thanks and best wishes,
On my machine, I have crond and anacron running.
I guess that I do not need crond.
I can easily manage crond, but waht about anacron?
systemctl status anacron
Unit anacron.service could not be found
systemctl status anacrond
Unit anacrond.service could not be found
systemctl status crond

It seems that anacron is a service of crond.
Is the only option to remove crontabs?

I just installed exfat-utils and I'm trying to format a 16GB microSD card:
$ sudo mkfs.exfat /dev/sdb1
File system created successfully.
But it actually doesn't do anything. All the old files are still on the SD
