Is rsync not supposed to append to the existing files or just copy over
I would like to update /home/bobg/.thunderbird but the following simply
[root@box10 bobg]# rsync -avz /mnt/HOME1/bob/TBdBx07/
In this case I have rsynced .thunderbird from box7 to an nfs server file
TBdBx07 and am in turn applying that to box10. I also want to do the
same with F20-Beta in Vmware Workstion which is how I got off on this ...
Do I misunderstand or am I simply doing it wrong?
Box 7 Fedora-19/64 XFCE Linux
Recently we have begun to have problems with our browsers stopping to
work, ask it to go to a bookmark address and nothing happens, everything
stops until an error message comes up that the address can not be found.
Thunderbird continues to receive e-mail unless I restart Thunderbird,
then it is unable to find gmail.com. The problem exists on two F-19
computers and several Apple computers on the LAN, in fact I often become
aware of the problem when someone complains that the internet connection
I can always restore normal operation by re-starting the Viasat modem, a
process that takes several minutes and is an annoyance.
I have determined that I can enter a numeric address e.g. 220.127.116.11
for viasat.com and that works as expected. At the request of viasat tech
support I tried taking the router out of the circuit and connecting
directly to the modem, that effected no change. Curiously, at the time
this this morning when the problem was manifest tech support's "computer
was down" which left me wondering if there was a correlation with my
apparent DNS problem. I was asked to call back in a few hours, I did that.
The tech support person seemed to take offense at my claiming there was
a DNS problem and went on to explain that I probably have a dhcp problem
and we need to start by "re-setting my NIC." From there on the
conversation began to deteriorate and she accused me of shouting at her,
I was able to extricate myself gracefully after that and agree that I
would call back when I had more time to devote to troubleshooting.
Am I missing some point here? Is there some connection between dhcp and
dns that I am not aware of. My dhcp server is in the router and deals
with about thirty addresses on the LAN and works faultlessly as far as I
Any thoughts appreciated,

after some updates on my system I cannot see my DHCP table of my router
through webpages:I guess that is connected to some modification in

Maybe a followup that describes RBAC. Not sure how the analogy would work
Dog Role, See Eye Dog Role, Rescue Dog Role.
RBAC is always hard to describe especially when you start defining SELinux Users.
Login User -> SELinux User -> roles -> Types.
The Russian dolls model is the best I have come up with.

I recently recorded a lecture video at:
but the video seems to have been recorded at a supersonic speed. The
audio is fine but as a result, completely out of sync with the video.
Would anyone know of a way to bring back the audio and the video into
sync? I prefer using tools available on Fedora.
I have no clue as to how this happened. I have been recording such
videos on Fedora for a long time (3 years), albeit on a different
machine from this one, and I have never had this problem.
I really don't want to go over and have to redo this video again. Other
than the unnecessary effort, the big issue is that I have no way of
knowing if the same problem will not recur.
Many thanks again for any help you can possibly give!

Hello all....I have been searching online looking for info in regards to
installing Fedora on a Chromebook, and while I've seen many tutorials,
(at least for Ubuntu anyways!) I have a question:
Is it possible to install Fedora on a Chromebook and completely REMOVE
the ChromeOS? if so...how? everything I've seen so far says "dual-boot"
but nothing seems to give you instructions as to how it can be
completely removed from the system..
