I was trying out the new fedup on my workstation at home.
I did this:
1) fedup --network 20 # No errors
3) select System Upgrade (fedup) from grub
4) I boots f19
Strange thing, on tty2 I have a prompt that says "system-upgrade:/ "
at the prompt.
I tried rebooting several times, even getting rid of grub options like quiet.

I keep a half dozen tabs open in Chrome at most times, and sometimes when I
open another tab, it seems like Chrome goes crazy and the system almost hangs.
Usually I'm able to get to a console prompt and kill all Chrome sessions and
things calm down for awhile. Any idea what's going on? I'm running Fedora 20
64-bit, XFCE/KDE. I've got 4 Gigs of RAM (I know, not a whole lot, but it's
all that will fit on this motherboard.) The CPU is an Athlon X2 and I've got a
GigE to my switch and a 100 Meg link to the router.
I have a MBP with a ssd that hosts Fedora 20 and OSx Mavericks in a dual
boot setup. In the laptop I also have a 500GB internal drive on which I
currently have my OSX Home directory. I have this drive (HFS+) mounted r/w
in Linux, but, as perhaps expected, there are a lot of issues with
permissions (files and directories in my OSX Home directory that i can't
access except if I copy them as root).
Is there a way that I can with this disk in Fedora, opening files and
writing files to it that I later can access in OSX as a regular user
similar to how I can move a USB drive from one computer to another without
getting issues with permissions? Or is it not advisable to do what I'm
trying to do? I have to admit that I haven't tried changing permissions on
the existing files on the drive but I suspect that would make them
inaccessible in OSX...
Please note that I have no problem mounting the disk as rw, only accessing
the files that are already there.
Thanks for any input,
I have a scenario I'm not familiar with the answer regarding linux LVM.
How do I systematically deal or solve a problem with a linux LVM setup
particularly a logical volume if one or more physical harddisk that makes
up a logical volume got broken?
Thanks and Best Regards
Just thought someone on the list may find this useful:
As a business owner I tried moving to appple, it worked ok for over a

I suspected that I'd have to kick the 27" Apple thunderbolt display to
the curb along with my macbook pro retina since I got Fedore running on
the macbook pro from a usb stick and the resolution caused all my icons
& fonts to be so small that it was flat un-usable... I assumed I would
have the same issue with the Apple 27" thunderbolt monitor however I was
pleased to find that it just works! fonts are readable, resolution is
amazing - just like it looked with the macbook pro - except now I have
an OS that doesn't tick me off on a daily basis
