Just had an inexplicable (to me) event occur.
Accidentally typed "ctrl-alt-l" which caused a logout from my runlevel
5, but did NOT shut down the running processes.
I was left with 6 running VMs, a host (not a pun) of other processes and
a login prompt. Once authenticated the only thing that changed was that
the login box disappeared. (beginning to hate that blue background,
reminds of somebody else's bsod)
I can ssh in from a remote but am hosed from the local console. No
tty's available. No where to go, move along Lookie Lou.
I always wondered how to log out and leave everything running awaiting
with bated breath my eventual return. Now I know. But just how do I
get back in?
New one for me. Anybody out there that has found their way to the
center of the earth and managed to get out???
Please, insight, magic key codes, valium...
My F20 PC currently has two kernels installed:
kernel-3.13.6-200.fc20.x86_64 and kernel-3.13.7-200.fc20.x86_64.
With the latest kernel my wifi connection constantly breaks, while the NetworkManager still indicates a connected wifi; this happens with two different USB wifi gadgets.
While pinging I suddenly get:
ping: sendmsg: No buffer space available.
This does not occur when I boot with kernel kernel-3.13.6-200.fc20.x86_64; wifi is then stable.
I'm afraid some bad wifi or network stuff came with the new kernel update!
(I don't know whether the cable connections are also affected; I haven't checked that).
One of the wifi's is: ID 0846:9041 NetGear, Inc. WNA1000M 802.11bgn [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
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
year before I just couldn't take it any more. So I ordered a Thinkpad
W540 with 32G of RAM, the 1920x1080 display - and it comes with 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
