vncserver program disappered on FC32??
by Michael D. Setzer II
Have two machines running Fedora 32, and just noticed with the latest
update of tigervnc-server the vncserver is GONE?
Did a downgrade on both machines, and it is back and running just fine.
The one machine had rebooted, and therefor wasn't able to load the
server. The other machine still had the server running from before the
upgrade, so was able to vnc into it.
The file from the /usr/bin director was just no longer there. Tried a
reinstall, and still no file. Only the downgrade option restored it??
Not sure on how to report this. Didn't notice it until trying to vnc into
machine that had rebooted? The dnf whatprovides shows that the
program is included, so not sure what kind of error is in the latest
Thanks and be Safe...

how to install zoom client.
by home user
Last week, I was to participate in a "Zoom" meeting for a charity that
I'm involved in. I have the needed software on my rarely-used windows-7
box. But I could not complete the windows-7 login (some problem with a
windows-7 service). I've since found there is a "Zoom" client for
Fedora. "dnfdragora" does not find anything for it. But I found a web
page that I hope has what I need. I've downloaded the package
("zoom_x86_64.rpm"), and I've downloaded a "Public Key"
("package-signing-key.pub"). The web site from which I've downloaded
these also has a line:
Key fingerprint: [some 40 hex digit number]
1. Do the 2 files need to be in a specific place to do the install? If
2. Do I need to be "root" to do the install?
3. What do I do with the "Key fingerprint"?
4. How do I do the install (preferably using "dnf")?

BTRFS compression on install (also external drives)
by Matti Pulkkinen
Is there a way in the Fedora 32 installer to set the compression mount
option for a new BTRFS filesystem before installing Fedora itself? I
know I can add the option to the fstab file after installation, reboot,
and then run the defragment command to compress after the fact, but it
would be convenient if I could just have the filesystem compressed right
away during installation.
Also, from what I've read I think I already know the answer to this, but
I'll ask to make sure: is it possible to set the compression option
persistently in the filesystem itself? It would be nice if I could have
an external USB hard drive (with its obvious IO bottleneck) compressed
as well. However, it seems like I would then have to always manually
mount the drive with the compression option, or set the compression
attribute after mounting. Either way, this isn't persistent. I also know
I could set the disk's UUID to always be mounted with the compression
option, but that is specific to one machine.

VM tool for Fedora 32
by S Bob
I'm looking for suggestions for a VM tool for Fedora 32. I am tired of
having to constantly patch VMware and have it stop working every time I
update to a new kernel. Looking for suggestions. Does KVM run on fedora
32? Can I install a windows VM with KVM? Anyone using other tools?
Thanks in advance

WD Mycloud -
by Bob Goodwin
I have some JPEG files on a Western Digital My cloud drive that I would
like to extract. I regret ever getting involved with it but now I need
to get the files off it and the software they provide to do that is for
Windows. Has anyone found a way to do this with Fedora, F-32 preferably?

DNS lookup bypassing the system settings
There is currently a large thread in devel discussing the
implementation of systemd-resolved for resolving DNS. As part of that

For me, the implication of that is that I am no longer in control of
DNS, etc. If some program has hard coded DNS servers, they bypass
everything and just ignore system settings. Am I understanding
If I'm not, great, I'm happy. If I am, though, how do I take back
control? I have turned off NetworkManager control of DNS and use a
simple caching resolver, knot-resolver. Am I OK, since all DNS access
has to go through that resolver, with my configured DNS servers?
In particular, I'm thinking about firefox, since as part of that thread
it emerged that browsers are including their own DNS clients with
things like DOH and DOT. Before I start knot-resolver, firefox cannot
reach the web. Is that an indication that it does, in fact, use my

I hear what you're saying, and yes, the man page says you should have a
'dev' in there,
but that doesn't make any difference"

Where to look next ?
I started this journey with a variety of web pages such as this one:
I'm not wedded to this USB adapter, I'd like to know which one would

Nope, I tried sending a screen shot, but the mailing list is holding my

There is a column in the table entitled Monitor Mode, but it's filled in
