Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I am running F33 and after install, I believe a newer linux kernel was
installed. Now when booting Grub shows two options of kernels to boot
However, the default (first highlighted) option is
kernel-5.8.16-300.fc33.x86_64, and I am currently booting from that. Is
that the behavior you would expect? Shouldn't I be booting from the most
up to date kernel installed?
I deleted a network printer and then I reinstalled (by Hplip, by cups,
by system-config-printer, for testing) and while in Hplip, Cups or
system-config-printer I get only one printer in the list, if I print
from Firefox, Thunderbird for example I have in the list also the
deleted printers that were installed with different names. Why?
Linux Fedora 33 (Workstation)
Please hit delete button if this topic does
not interest you.
This is a follow-up to my post yesterday,
about my first-hand experience with OpenMandriva
Alpha on hardware, based on my previous
experience with Fedora, and other rpm-distros.
The initial problem I reported using their default
Falkon browser, can simply be avoided by just
using the ancient version of Firefox in their repo,
Today, I decided to try their fancier version using
the heavily modified kernel called "znver1," for
Ryzen processors. I installed it on a blank
SSD and treated it like it was my only operating
system. It had numerous problems. I can not
criticize it though because it is beyond the scope
of my Linux skills. Nevertheless, I decided to
go even deeper and write over it a whole new
fresh install using their Cooker iso for znver1,
thinking, maybe I would get a newer version.
( Cooker is their very unstable branch )
The main thing I discovered doing that, is that their
isos in Cooker are built with clang, and the others are
I am in their Cooker znver1 right now typing this
but having to use their Firefox 79.
One issue I am having, and please email me privately
about it, is that Discover wants to update 785 pages
( which would put it on par with Rawhide ), and it
is missing python3.8dist(six), and will not update a
single package. And dnf thinks the system is up-to-date.
That sounds like something that could happen in Fedora
and maybe one of you know a workaround.
Their Cooker is not as stable as Fedora's Rawhide.
I will most likely write over my first install of their 4.2 Alpha
with another distro, and keep this Cooker znver1 to see if
I can learn anything.
I have to assume with their tiny team, that this znver1
thing is going to have limited packages that are compatible.
In its present form before the missing updates, the version numbers
of packages are only 0.0.0.1 ahead of the ones in 4.2 Alpha. But the
expected updates will be the latest available.
I now have about 10 hours of user experience on hardware
with OpenMandriva's alpha and Cooker version.
Please email me privately for further info, as I can only imagine
there are only a few people interested in other rpm-distros.
One funny thing is their Rosa Image-writer didn't work in the
Alpha version, so I had to use the Fedora Image Writer on Flathub,
to create the two znver1 installs, but Rosa Image-writer
did work on the Cooker version.
The only distro that I have used in the past year and a half has been
I have been using it on hardware only and using it for daily personal use,
but also for my hobby business, which is the only income I have.
Today, I was feeling like I needed to explore some other distros and I had
a new blank SSD available. I had just updated Rawhide on my
primary NVMe and Fedora 33 on my secondary NVMe, so I had a pretty good
idea how they performed on a Ryzen 5 computer that I built two days ago.
I spent two hours trying to install Arch from scratch, and surrendered to
that idea. I decided that since I had never tried OpenMandriva that I
install their Alpha version ( 4.2 ). I do not know if it was built with
clang as they
advertise or brag about.
***The point to the discussion below is just to show some observations
related to rpm-based distros assuming that this first-hand info might
encourage or discourage
a Fedora user from repeating what I just did. ***
So please hit delete button now, if that is not of interest.
I have been in OpenMandriva Alpha 4.2 ( Argon ) about 30 minutes,
and the similarities to Fedora 33 ( KDE ) are something worth mentioning.
One key difference is lots of KDE software is preinstalled, as are
things a new user to Linux might want like printer drivers, and codecs.
Flatpak was not preinstalled. Falkon was the only web-browser and
Discover did not show another option. dnfdragora was preinstalled
and showed Firefox 79 available. So I went thru all the flatpak routine
in console and now writing this in Firefox 82. The main thing I found
that I did not
like about Falkon, is that Google does not support it. So you can't log
into YouTube, Gmail, etc. However, Youtube and over video sites played
out of the box.
Below are a few specs as a comparison to Fedora 33 ( after an update )
KDE apps 20.08
KDE frameworks 5.73.0
This becomes a rolling-release upon updating, so it is not really 4.2
anymore and appears
to have a different repository than 4.2, so assuming this install never
borks, I should never have to
reinstall it. Right ? The iso was published around July 27. I did
using dnf but then a bunch of stuff updated after that in Discover.
Filesystem installed was ext4.
I just see now that they had a iso optimized for Ryzen users. So I guess
I should reinstall it. LOL !
I do not think Fedora lovers would like OpenMandriva, as it comes with
stuff like Midnight Commander and emoji picker and lots of wallpapers
pre-installed or with an easy click in Discover. I doubt Ubuntu and
Manjaro / Arch users would like OpenMandriva.
One disclaimer, is that my opinion or statements above are partially
biased, as I lived in Mageia 6 on hardware for six months, before it was
lived in ROSA R11 for a month on hardware before coming to Fedora.
Feel free to email me privately, if you think I can offer more details, or
to this post if there is something Fedora related to mention. I can only
are one or two people out there that use both Fedora and OpenMandriva, or
development of KDE.
I think what discourages some users from trying it or using it is the name

I'm writing a client and server program for cluster computation. I noticed that nmap sees a specific port as open on Fedora Server and as filtered on Fedora
Workstation when the server is running and sees this port as closed on Fedora Server and as filtered on Fedora Workstation when the server is not running.
While looking into the firewalld configuration I found that Fedora Workstation and Fedora Server have one major difference their configuration files:
<port protocol="udp" port="1025-65535"/>
<port protocol="tcp" port="1025-65535"/>
After removing these specific lines from /etc/firewalld/zones/FedoraWorkstation.xml, using firewall-cmd, the ports are still accessible by the client and server
Can someone please tell me how to close these ports on Fedora Workstation? And why does nmap report the ports as filtered on Fedora Workstation and as
open/close on Fedora Server?
Just noticed this fedora 33 problem:
With rpmfusion nvidia drivers installed, running a GNOME on Xorg
session with sddm as my login manager. (What part of this is
relevant, I don't know :-).
If I choose "logout" from the menu in the top right, I get
the logout dialog, click on logout now, then that's it. I never
get another login prompt from the GUI.
Have to hit Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get to a terminal and reboot.
It's Time To Admit It: The X.Org Server Is Abandonware - Phoronix
"The last major release of the X.Org Server was in May 2018 but don't
expect the long-awaited X.Org Server 1.21
actually be released anytime soon.
This should hardly be surprising but a prominent Intel open-source
developer has conceded that the X.Org Server is pretty much "abandonware"
with Wayland being the future. This comes as X.Org Server development hits
a nearly two decade low
the X.Org Server is well off its six month release regiment in not seeing a
major release in over two years, and no one is stepping up to manage the
One of the motivations for Wayland was that the X.Org was becoming
unmaintainable and suffered from design choices that are no longer
relevant. It has been clear for some time that X Org was not getting much
attention, but Wayland has been around for a while and still many drivers
(Wacom professional drawing tablets) require X (and don't work with
X-Wayland). An additional problem is that developers with decades of X11
experience are aging out.
The Phoronix post has 100's comments, so far I haven't seen them degenerate

This is up-to-date f32 amd64.
From time to time I find that I do not have sound, and then pavucontrol shows no configuration
is available. Sound is via HDMI to the monitor (TV). The internal sound device is not used.
So far the only way out I found is to log out/in, but this is not ideal. Is there a way to
make the system (I suspect it is X) see the sound device and enable it? Maybe with a udev command?
When all is well, I see this:
$ udevadm trigger -n -v |grep sound
When I have no sound I am missing the last two devices.
In case it is related, there is also a KVM instance running on this machine.
