Hi,tried to install F30 and F31 on 2 separate Partitions on 1 external disk, no success, got either only F30 and Windows boot (internal disk is Windows 10) or F31 and Windows boot. Did anyone install 2 Fedora versions on 1 disk in seperate partitions? Grub shows after installation either F30 and Windows, or F31 and Windows.
Am I the only one who's laptop hangs badly after coming out of suspend mode?
I type my password to unlock the screen but unlocking doesn't help
(maybe pam isn't working by then) and at some point the screen just
freezes. I was able once to move to a different tty and saw a lot of
kernel errors coming in.
This happened with 5.4.7 and 5.4.10.
Now I went back to good old 5.3.16 which works great with my HP laptop.
Anyone else had this problem?
It’s not that I have something to hide,
it’s that I have nothing I want you to see
somehow (and i don't know how), while messing with settings, i
activated some sort of high contrast setting wherein, for example, the
title bar on my terminal windows is black and white, and a number of
the icons under "Activities" are also now black and white.
i'm trying to figure out how to turn this off, and can't find the
option for that. thoughts?

One of my laptops has a minor, but an annoying, glitch with audio playback.
I've observed this behavior with both Firefox and other audio playback
applications. When audio playback starts /for the first time/, maybe the
first 400-500ms of audio gets dropped, and then the rest of the audio plays
What's interesting is that pausing the audio for a few seconds and resuming
it does not result in dropped audio. But if the audio playback gets paused
for a longer period of time, resuming it once again drops the initial 400-500
milliseconds of audio.
This happens only on one of my laptops. All of them are based on the XFCE
spin, and generally have the same set of packages. This must be hardware
related. This is my hardware (lspci -v):
00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core
Processor HD Audio Controller (rev 06)
Subsystem: CLEVO/KAPOK Computer Device 6504
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 35
Memory at f7e14000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel
I'd be curious to compare notes with anyone else that has the same audio
The most annoying part of this is that this manages to perfectly drop the
"new mail" notification from one of my Firefox extensions. By the time the
audio hardware decides to do its job, the horse already left the barn.
I've had issues with distorted audio played via HDMI since Sept. 2019 on 3
You can make out speech played via HDMI, but it is really distorted. After
a time it sounds normal, ie undistorted. It used to occur the every time
when a computer was booted. Now it seems to occur after it comes out of
Analog audio plays fine. These machines have a variety of sound adapters
in them and all of them act the same.
Is anyone else experiencing this ?
Fedora 31, x64
I just downloaded
$ youtube-dl --audio-format best --audio-quality 0
And in Firefox, I loaded the URL in one tab and the
downloaded file in another. Side by side, there is
no difference. Parole is no difference than Firefox
But loading the file into VLC, distortion city,
especially around 1:45.
What the heck ????
Computers are like air conditioners.
They malfunction when you open windows
So I want to add a few options to the kernel (say iommu support). I
have been told before to avoid using grub2-mkconfig because it would
apply the changes to all currently available (to boot from) boot
kernels. Instead, I should edit just the latest kernel entry in the
grub.cfg file, adding the option to the line starting with linux16.
This way, if it went boink, all I had to do is reboot, pick another
kernel from the grub menu and off I went. And, it seems that every
future kernel upgrade would incorporate this change.
Is that accurate or is there a cleaner way to do the same while still
leaving me the option to go back to the grub menu?

k....I'm just gonna ask this:
Why is it now that when I get notifications for updates I'm being
prompted to "restart & Install"?......
W T H!????
Is this WINDOWS!?.......I have enjoyed the fact that I could update my
system and use my computer until I was ready to shutdown / restart at my
leisure. Now?....there's a funky button up top of the Software Updates
(after its found packages to update) that says "Restart &
Install"?......is there ANY way possible to TURN THIS CRAP OFF!!?? Is
there some config file I can alter that will make this GO AWAY!? (I know
I'm acting like a lunatic, but I was in the IT field since the Windows
NT 4.0 days...and after finding Linux?...I have enjoyed NOT having to
restart after updates.) Please Fedora Admins.....Fedora Magical
Unicorns......Fedora High Council Wizards....PLEASE find a way to make
this just GO AWAY!?....
I have 2 computers, nearly identical, similar age. AMI BIOS in both.
I swapped the M.SATA drives from each. One drive has F31. One has dual
boot Windows 10 + F31.
The F31 alone hard drive boots and runs fine in the first computer. So
does the dual boot drive. The dual boot hard drive will only boot Windows
in the 2nd computer. I can't get it to boot Fedora at all.
The BIOS settings appear to be identical. The first computer that boots
both drives fine has BIOS version F4. I installed the lastest BIOS in the
second computer that doesn't boot. It is version F2, but a much later
I'm using legacy (compatibility, non efi ) mode. The BIOS gives me 2
P4: Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA
Windows Boot Manager (P4: Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA)
If I select the first option, the Linux boot partition the computer boots
and displays: "Reboot and Selct proper Boot device or... "
I've checked fstab on both drives. The UUIDs are correct and they are set
up the same, except the dual boot drive has 2 extra entries for the Windows
Why won't the dual boot drive boot Fedora on the 2nd computer ?
