I started seeing this after updating Fedora 29 (KDE) which installed
There are several postings on StackOverflow (unix.stackexchange.com,
superuser.com) about this issue and suggestions on how to suppress the
notification. There's a Fedora bug report:
and a KDE bug report: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=411441
This message happens whenever I close Dolphin, but also at random other
Apparently, downgrading to kf5-kio-5.58 reverts the code which caused
the error. Unfortunately, this is not in the F29 repo so it isn't
possible to use dnf to downgrade. Can someone update the repo with the

I have a flash drive with about four partitions on is.
Lets call it /dev/sdc.
Can I tar sdc or am I stuck with tarring the partitions?
Any drawback to this?

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 an old-style MBR Grub configuration for F30. Converting the
system to UEFI seems like a hassle and doesn't provide an obvious
benefit for now (maybe next time I do a full install I'll go for it).
However I also run Windows 10 in a KVM/QEMU virtual machine. This has
its own dedicated drive and uses UEFI (OVMF). My BIOS supports UEFI and
I've managed to dual-boot a few times by fiddling with the BIOS
settings, but switching back and forth is clunky and error-prone, and
Windows always wants to "fix" itself before working.
My question is: how can I add this as an option to my Grub
configuration to enable dual-boot directly from the Grub menu (i.e.
running on metal, not a VM)? In other words, BIOS boots using MBR,
invokes Grub, which then (optionally) invokes UEFI to boot Windows. Or
is this not possible?
I have a fedora 30 bootable flash drive. /dev/sda5 is my "Linux
Swap". To zero out my swap space to make it more friendly
I would try just dd'ing /dev/zero across it, but I am afraid I
might break some file structure or some other stuff.
Today, I got a message, staring:
Hey, I know your password is ........
and asking for money.
The password is one of the password that I use. It is not one giving access
to important accounts, but I am a bit wondering about other account.
I am careful with my accounts and passwords.
How can I prevent sort of password steal?

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
