I am running Fedora-19 + latest updates and would like to make Xorg
listen to tcp connections for development.
I already set "xserver-allow-tcp=true" in /etc/lightdm/lightdm and
executed "xhost +", however I still get connection refused when
starting x-clients with DSIPLAY=127.0.0.1:0.0 :/
Any idea where this secret switch is hidden these days?
Thank you in advance, Clemens
I am trying to compile the FocusBlue plugin for GIMP on Fedora 19.
The make file spits out this error when linking:
/usr/bin/ld: diffusion.o: undefined reference to symbol 'expf@(a)GLIBC_2.0'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'expf@(a)GLIBC_2.0' is defined in DSO /lib/libm.so.6 so
try adding it to the linker command line
/lib/libm.so.6: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
Can anyone help?
I'm running Firefox 24.0 on F18. It keeps telling me I have an
update for AdblockPlus, but when I try to install it, it fails. I've
tried doing it with AdblockPlus enabled, and with it disabled. There is
no button on this extension, as there is on normal ones, to remove it.
How do I just get rid of the whole extension?
Is there an item or a line in my .mozilla, for instance, where I
can just delete it?

Remember I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
I have obtained a set of open-source programs from
uncompressed, etc, and it all goes through fine.
When I compile, the programs work fine on my old 32-bit machine
(results make sense), however there is a segmentation fault on my
I compile using:
gcc -c -I../include -O3 -finline-functions -Winline -Wall
-falign-loops=2 -falign-jumps=2 -falign-functions=2
(Note that I had to fix the makefiles in there.)
Btw, I don't know if this could have anything to do with it, but this
set of programs were written in 1996 (when 64-bit probably did not even
exist at all). Also, all the code uses single-precision (floats) rather
than my preferred doubles. (Which makes me ask: is it possible to go
into all the many files and convert all the floats into doubles using
some command? )

Running Fedora 17 on an encrypted volume
The system was decomissioned pending hardware repairs for quite a while
(since July-2012). Once I finally gotba spare new hdd and monitor, it was
brought back to life and fetched over 1,400 updates. After that it rebooted
fine to an "as fresh as one can possibly get a F17 installation".
So I thought it would be a nice opportunity to test that "FedUp" thing I
keep reading about... and preserve my nice Gnome 3 tweaks of F17 in the
latest greatest F19....
I told FedUp to use a repo upgrade, as the FedUp wiki recommended that
approach over media install. I thought it'd be also a nice opportunity to
test my 30Mbit FTTH link. Before I knew it it was fetching packages like
there was no tomorrow and the list of packages was scrolling on the screen
faster than one could read it.
It went through several install phases until I was told everything was
ready to proceed with the upgrade which would begin after the reboot.
After the reboot a new entry appeared on the Grub boot menu labeled "FedUp
upgrade" or something along those lines.
After selecting it, the familiar "f"logk appeared alomg with a progress bar
below it. The progress bar completed to 99% or therabouts and then it
stalled. It could have been at 95% or 100% I do not recall (there also was
no numerical reading next to the progress bar so it was hard to tell the
percentage of completion.
After I few minutes it just stood there... I thought Id give it a couple of
HOURS so I could conclude if the process hanged or was just waiting too
Two hours later I came back and saw the screen with the same output I saw
So I grudgingly hit the reset button, thinking that maybe if the process
was incomplete it would re-start after a reboot or Id be shown with some
error mesage about the outcome of the upgrade process.
I was wrong.
In the current state, boot menu no longer shows the FedUp option, only
NO MATTER what I select, it hangs. Ive tried all kernels. It hangs right
after the [f] logo has its glow, and just stays there.
I would really appreciate any ideas of what might have gone wrong, and I
hope my feedback is of use to FedUp devs. If you want logs etc, I can look
them up and paste to pastebin... as long as I can get back a working
bootable system in the first place.
Thanks in advance...
