Is there an equivalent of systemd-analyze for system shutdown processes.
Something on a couple of my machines takes about 20 seconds to wind down,
during a reboot or a shutdown, and I'd like to figure out what it is.

Stop accusing me of trolling. It's not my problem that you are unable
to understand arguments, and I'll save my time rather than giving
explanations because no matter what I might say, you'd only use it to
accuse me of trolling.

Yes, I'd have even more packages installed that I don't have use for.

And how would I disable it? Mdmonitor is stopped and disabled, and md
is still running.

So you don't have any real arguments for or experience with running
irqbalance other than what the manpage claims that it does. Instead of
proving some useful answers, all you can do is accuse ppl of trolling.

Ah yes, of course, that claim again, lol. Since you don't have any
arguments or facts, making silly claims is all you can do. That gets a
little boring and is pretty pitiful.

'dmidecode | less' should tell you. The mainboard make/model is usually
one of the first sections returned.
Please keep replies on-list. It benefits everyone that way.

For the longest time, I've had this suspicion that some
update to the Intel graphics driver has made it screw
up the range of colors that can be displayed.
I just found this command:
xrandr --output HDMI2 --set "Broadcast RGB" Full
And the result is magical, the thin mist that had been
obscuring my screen was blown away, and everything is
crystal clear again.
But, it makes the screen flicker badly, and the Samsung
TV I'm using is slightly out of sync till I power cycle
it (or switch modes and switch back).
Anyone know if there is some way to set this permanently
as the default mode for the display rather than having to
run xrandr to change it at runtime?
(Apparently the default "Automatic" setting for this
property guesses wrong).
I have now a new disk running on my machine
Model Family: Western Digital Caviar Green (AF, SATA 6Gb/s)
SATA Version is: SATA 3.0, 6.0 Gb/s (current: 3.0 Gb/s)
Why is not my disk with
current: 3.0 Gb/s
Thanks in advance,
Today, I am getting this message at boot time:
"Notice - HD self monitoring system has reported that a parameter has
exceeded its normal operating range. Dell recommends that you back up
your data regularly. A parameter out of range may or may not indicate
a potential Hard. Press F1 to continue , F2 to enter setup"
Is there any reason to be worried about?
My computer is about 3 years old.
Thanks in advance,
Aside from the 3 or 4 updates to biosdevname that changed
the "immutable" names, I've just found another fail:
I replaced my motherboard and since this one has native
gigabit, I didn't re-install the separate NIC.
Naturally, my one and only ethernet interface
is now called em1 instead of p6p1.
This really worked infinitely better before they
solved this problem. All I had to do was remove
the 70-persistent-net udev file and let it get
automatically regenerated from scratch.
My new motherboard seems to have a audio system that
is friendlier to alsa and pulseaudio. For the first
time ever I see both HDMI and S/PDIF listed as
possible outputs when I run "gnome-control-center sound".
They even both work when I test the speakers.
Since I no longer seem to need low-level kludgery
to get S/PDIF output, I'm now wondering if it is
possible for different apps to output to different
outputs using pulseaudio?
Can I have my normal system beeps and wot-not
going to HDMI, but tell mplayer to output to
the S/PDIF output? If so, anyone have any
examples of the syntax I need to use on the
mplayer command line?
My preferred twitter client choqok doesn't work at the moment because it
has not been updated to support the new authentication method that
twitter now insists upon. I have tried the others listed by a "yum
search twitter" command and can't get any of them to authenticate
Is anyone currently using a working twitter client? I don't like the
browser page - I want my feed updating automatically.
