How do I prevent sound devices being search for when trying to
install from a LiveCD\DVD
I have onboard audio disabled in bios,
but I have an nVidia VGA\DVI\HDMI Graphics,
and it's the hdmi audio it's hunting for.
Coming up as nVidia HDA (device)
The only bz I found was:
After an update, my dual display started having problems and I don't
know where to look.
A clean install of Fedora using KDE spin worked wonderfully with this
setup. On one upgrade, the Fedora boot process is mirrored on both
displays and stays mirrored after X starts which is configured as side
When I do a power on boot, the bios display is only on Display 1. Once
Fedora picks the kernel, the display changes to mirrored and any
comments or splash screens are the same on both screens.
If I use CTRL+ALT+F3 for example, the terminal is mirrored to both displays.
Screen saver password request box comes up on both screens but the data
only goes in on one screen. I can use either box to enter the password.
X runs slower under this configuration as I think it competes for
control and if I try to run some applications (games) the display really
gets screwed up if they require full screen, such as Tuxracer. This
will be displayed on both screens in a mirrored mode and then won't go
back to side by side until I reset the configuration.
I have tried to search through the grub2 settings to find where the
screen resolution is set but have not succeeded in configuring this.
I am using Nvidia video card with the Nouveau driver.
Is adding the following to the /etc/default/grub the correct way to fix
Because F17 and F18 installers have bugs when installing with encryption enabled for "/" on my notebook (and the F18 respin does not start installation at all) I decided to give F19-alpha a try.
However, the system runs very slow (compared to F17 on the same notebook) - XOrg performs poorly and larger applications (firefox) take a lot more time for startup than on F17.
I guess this is because of debugging options (run-time checks etc) enabled. Is there any way to avoid this additional debugging overhead somehow, like some kernel parameters or ....
I want to transfer a dvd image from my laptop (ubuntu 12.04.2) to my fedora 18 box that has selinux disabled. Wired connection to my router allows F18 to browse to U12 and see the file and right click copy, but trying to paste into a folder in my /home/dave directory gives a terse 'permission denied.'
Ideas? will Read TFM if pointed.

Hey, hi, I was trying to customize the theme color of emacs itself and I
don't know why it doesn't work, I really mean it I don't have any idea of
what is wrong
My .emacs looked like in first place
> ;; uncomment to always end a file with a newline
> '(require-final-newline t)
> ;; uncomment to disable loading of "default.el" at startup
> '(inhibit-default-init t)
> ;; default to unified diffs
> '(diff-switches "-u"))
> (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/")
> ;;; uncomment for CJK utf-8 support for non-Asian users
> ;; (require 'un-define)
then I add this to it to add a little of _good_ taste:
> (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/")
> (defun color-theme-nice ()
> ((background-color . "#101e2e")
> (background-mode . light)
> (border-color . "#1a1a1a")
> (cursor-color . "#fce94f")
> (foreground-color . "#eeeeec")
> (mouse-color . "black"))
> (fringe ((t (:background "#1a1a1a"))))
> (mode-line ((t (:foreground "#eeeeec" :background "#555753"))))
> (region ((t (:background "#0d4519"))))
> (font-lock-builtin-face ((t (:foreground "#729fcf"))))
> (font-lock-comment-face ((t (:foreground "#888a85"))))
> (font-lock-function-name-face ((t (:foreground "#edd400"))))
> (font-lock-keyword-face ((t (:foreground "#729fcf"))))
> (font-lock-string-face ((t (:foreground "#ad7fa8"))))
> (font-lock-type-face ((t (:foreground"#8ae234"))))
> (font-lock-constant-face ((t (:foreground "#eeeeec"))))
> (font-lock-variable-name-face ((t (:foreground "#eeeeec"))))
> (minibuffer-prompt ((t (:foreground "#729fcf" :bold t))))
> (font-lock-warning-face ((t (:foreground "red" :bold t))))
> (provide 'color-theme-nice)
> (require 'color-theme)
But when I open emacs nothing happens the default theme is loaded with its
boring color scheme, I don't know whatever is its *real* init file. Some
help will be absolutely welcomed
I have upgraded f17 to f18 w/ fedora-upgrade and all went smoothly :)
only this issue:
51792415 bdb(dc=my-domain,dc=com): BDB1538 Program version 5.3 doesn't match environment version 5.2
51792415 bdb_db_open: database "dc=my-domain,dc=com" cannot be opened, err -30969. Restore from backup!
51792415 backend_startup_one (type=bdb, suffix="dc=my-domain,dc=com"): bi_db_open failed! (-30969)
I forget to do a backup before upgarding, how can I fix?
I am using Fedora-19-Alpha with nilfs2 on /.
While everything worked great with Fedora 17, the updated version of
yum also check for free inodes before executing the transaction:
> Transaction check error:
> installing package ..... needs 40 inodes on the / filesystem
Which is just plain wong in case of nilfs, as it has no inode limit.
Is there any way to disable that check? diskspacecheck=0 in
/etc/yum.conf didn't help unfortunately :/
Thank you in advance, Clemens
I am getting some data on mountable media, and the device which writes the files
runs in EST or whatever you want to call five hours west of Greenwich with no
daylight time. The problem is that on a FAT or ISO-9660 filesystem, the date and
time seem to all jump an hour during daylight time. Is there a better way to get
the time correct than to run a separate system which doesn't use daylight savings?
I have tried exporting TZ=EST5 (or EST or UTC-5 or GMT-5) to the mount command
or the rsync command, that doesn't seem to help anything, I need the incoming
data treated as EST, while the machine is at EST5EDT.
