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 ?
By mistake I removed administration privileges from my account
under kde, which is the only account that had it. Removing the privilege
has removed my account from sudoers. Is the only course of action I have
to get it back to reinstall F29 and then upgrage to F31?

I don't have the root account enabled and I don't have a maintenance CD
for F31 as it was an upgrade from F30, which was an upgrade from F29.

Look around for a used HP laser printer. I am using an HP1320 which I
bought in May, 2005 for about $550 including an extra cartridge and tax.
HP cartridges are expensive! I have no idea how many cartridges I have
gone through, probably over a dozen, and it is as good as the day I
bought it. Drivers are included with cups or hplip. The bare HP1320
needs a ~$30 network print server if you want to network it, otherwise a
If you want print/fax/scan, then one of the all in ones or 'MFP'. I have
an HP3055 which I purchased in 2006 (to replace the fax machine which
had died). I mainly use it for scanning now. It has builtin network
capability. Again, the drivers are included in your basic install of
cups or hplip.
A good one will probably cost you $50-$75. Off-brand cartridges cost
about that. ATM there is an HP P2015d for sale used on kijiji.ca in the
Toronto area for $80Cdn. Physically it looks exactly like the HP1320 and
has duplex capability. So... $60US???
I happen to like HP printers, but Brother printers do the same thing and
are just about as dependable and long-lived. I've had Brother printers
too. The best scanner I have ever used is a Brother ADS-1000. Once did
over 650 pages in one continuous pass!
It would seem that "something" happened to the file(s) that provide
RJ45 Ethernet connectivity maybe as far back as F29. I can get a WiFi
connection, but not an RJ45 eth0 DHCP connection. This happens in my
home and at a nearby computer store, so it's not my DHCP server.
When booted up to WiFi, connecting an RJ45 Ethernet cable shuts down
the existing WiFi port (normal), but never comes up with a DHCP address
for the eth0 port. The network icon just loops forever. When I
disconnect the RJ45 cable, WiFi connectivity resumes after 5-10
The problem has persisted since upgrades to both F30 and F31. I'm
guessing the best way to fix the problem is a fresh install of whatever
packages provide eth0 connectivity. I'm at a loss to know what those
packages are, and if there are any hidden potholes/landmines with
simply using dnf to first remove then to install them from scratch.
If it matters, I'm using the mate v1.22.2 desktop. Here are all the
*mate* packages I have installed:
# rpm -qa | grep mate | sort
Some detailed guideance would be much appreciated.
Incidentally, I have appended " net.ifnames=0" to the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX= line and rebuilt the initramfs to revert back to
classic eth0 nomenclature for the RJ45 Ethernet port. I can't stand the
new naming convention. :-)

Currently, the From: field on any emails I send to Fedora lists gets
"Benjamin Lowry via users <users(a)lists.fedoraproject.org>"
How do I turn this behavior off? I'm fine with my real address getting
scraped by spambots or whatever. -ben
