Hi, I have a fedora32 system behind a firewall without any access from
the outside. I'd like to build a reverse ssh tunnel so I can get to it
from my remote location while working remotely. I'm familiar with how
remote ssh tunnels work, but can't quite get systemctl to create a
proper service, presumably because ssh expects to be tied to a terminal.
I've built the following shell script. I believe "bash -s" can be used
to spawn processes not connected to a terminal.
# cat /etc/init.d/ssh-tunnel.sh
ssh -i /root/.ssh/orion-key -R 43022:localhost:22 root(a)orion.example.com
I was using this script in a unit file, but got closer to what I want by
placing the ssh command itself into the unit file as the ExecStart
# cat /etc/systemd/system/connection.service
Description=Reverse SSH to orion
ExecStart=ssh -tt -i /root/.ssh/orion-key -R 43022:localhost:22
#ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID
I also read that -tt can be passed to ssh to start it on a pseudo-terminal.
I then added the unit file as a service using "systemctl enable
Can someone guide me on the unit parameters I should be using for this?
After last night's update to emacs on F32, I can no longer use emacs with my default font.
When I fire it up, I get a second window open and the following:
Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading ‘/home/user/.emacs’:
Symbol's function definition is void: set-default-font
To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
cause of the error in your initialization file. Start Emacs with
the ‘--debug-init’ option to view a complete error backtrace.
My own .emacs has the following set at:
Any suggestions as to what I should look at/change?
Many thanks and best wishes,
What am I doing wrong here? nmcli says eno2 is
disconnected but is working as if it was connected.
eno2 is my (only) Internet connection.
$ nmcli device status | grep -i eno2
eno2 ethernet disconnected --

Huh? I am confused.

This is a puzzle I have been working on for about two years.
On this web page:
From the command line, I am trying to read the revision
which is 7.3.2039.0.
Problem is that the revision is generated by a java script.
And curl and wget have no way of running java scripts.
And I have not figured out how to get it with headless
I asked ESET if they'd give me a direct download link, but
they ignored me.
Any of you guys have a cleaver way to cli extract the revision?
I have been using Fedora Rawhide as my only operating system
for over a year. I love it.
My teenager is attending school this semester 100% online and they are
100% on their own to do all their studies, as my wife and I are not able
to be there to help. The stress of all that is overwhelming.
Due to various logistics, I just had to buy her a computer, and
after careful pondering, I purchased the ACER 24 inch
All-in-One Chrome-based computer. I am extremely impressed with
this device ( but it is $ 600 ). My only regret now is not getting a
one. Why is that you may ask, as Chrome OS is fairly lightweight ?
Running GNU/Linux on this computer is a breeze. Based on my first
impression, this implementation of Linux just may be the future
of mainstream desktop Linux.
The Linux that is installed is "Debian 10 Buster." I do not know much
Debian. But the integration of the apps with Chrome was amazing.
familiar with Gnome 3, can figure this implementation out.
In the present form of this implementation of Linux, a person would either
have to already know some Linux, or have a tutor or someone sit down with
and show them what all the hoopla is about.
This purchase may just be the best investment that I ever made.
Only downside so far, is that certain apps may be limited in function.
I could not change the tiles in the game "gnome-mahjongg."
I do not yet know enough about this implementation to do everything I want
to do, but
it looks like I will be able to figure it out. You have to know Debian
command line and
understand the exact names of the programs in their repository to install
Here is a basic summary of how to get started.
1 ) In the Settings Menu is a icon of cute fat penquin that says
"Linux Beta." Click install
and wait a few minutes depending on your internet speed.
This machine has ethernet.
2 ) a linux terminal pops up, and you can make it full-screen.
the command line will be:
3 ) sudo work out of the box ( and with no password ). so,
type "sudo apt-get install gnome-mahjonng aisleriot
libreoffice-writer" would install those
you can launch them from terminal or go to the graphical launcher and there
will be an icon for Linux apps.
I now have a whole lot of new fun stuff to learn, like how to run Fedora
Rawhide on a ChromeOS computer.
Supposedly there will be a way to load it from a USB flash-drive.
I will try to make a video someday on YouTube about all this.

Recently, gnome-software has started alerting me that a new version of
Fedora is available. I haven't seen anyone else mention this happening,
so I assume that there's something misconfigured on my system.
Where does gnome-software get the list of available releases, on Fedora?
I gather this is something of a known issue, but I wonder if anyone here
can help. I'm trying to set up a bluetooth headset for use when teaching
by Zoom. I have tried this with two different headsets and have the same
problem with both.
Pairing goes fine. If I choose "High Fidelity Playback" as the profile,
the sound works, but the mic does not work (unsurprisingly). If I choose
"Headset Head Unit (HSP/HFP)", then nothing works: No sound, and no mic.
This is all being done in pavucontrol, and I'm running KDE if that's
Thanks for any help.
Strange thing after upgrading a client to kernel-5.7.17, the client is unable
to list files/directories from an NFS server running kernel-5.7.15 (NFS v4.2 /
Kerberos mounted /home). The files/directories seem to be accessible if I type
in their names, but are not available via ls -l.
Reverting the client to kernel-5.7.15 restores the expected behavior (all
files/directories are visible again).
Has anyone else see this?
