I am installing F21 to several remote computers. In the grub.cfg menu I
added 'inst.sshd' and added sshpw and text mode to ks.cfg so that I
could login and monitor the install process. I have done this on several
computers that are in an other city and I can't login during the install
or after the install has completed and rebooted, However, I have
remotely installed on several computers that are on the local network
and have been able to login during the installation and after the
computer rebooted. One interesting point, on 1 computer after about 24
hours I was able to login. Do not know why it started working.
I have looked at the anaconda log files and can not determine where the
info on a ssh login should be located. A search of the web did not
provide any info ether.
Thanks for any help,
I'll try to create a thinclient for Ovirt / Rhev based on raspberry pi 2 B+
Someone know if spice-xpi run well on ARM spin?
Someone have some experience with ARM and Spice?
I think this is a good idea for replace thinclients by Fedora ARm spin

This is odd ... and I might be missing something stupid, but ...
I am trying to build an sd card for my raspberry pi using rather nice
*python* program that I've used for YEARS ...
It's acting weird ... and something clearly doesn't seem right ...
# rpm -q fedora-arm-installer
# file /usr/bin/fedora-arm-image-installer
/usr/bin/fedora-arm-image-installer: *Bourne-Again* shell script, ASCII
And a visual inspection of the file confirms it is in fact a shell
script and not a python script.
WTF? No wonder it's not working the way it should!!!! What happened to
the python program???
This one doesn't even seem to support Raspberry Pis, even, after looking

after updating F21->F22, I noticed immediately that the mouse wheel
has got some nasty acceleration. Example: I open a large pdf
document, and as soon as I begin to scroll, I'm on the last
page. After that, scrolling works at normal speed. The same happens
when scrolling a website in Firefox: at first wheel action the scroll
speed is extremely high, and at the next touch, all is back to normal.
This behaviour is driving me insane, and I could't find a solution so far.
Is it something with XFCE, Xorg, whatever? I don't know.
Is anybody here encountering the same phenomenon, and what to do about
What I know so far is that it came with the F22 update.
For some time, I've been using the minidlna program to serve media to
TVs, etc, in my house. Unfortunately, recent updates to the ffmpeg suite
broke the program: Certainly library calls no longer work. I'm therefore
trying to build a static binary against the last version of ffmpeg that
I understand that these aren't fedora-supported programs, but I think
the question is really more general, namely: how exactly one goes about
building a static binary.
What I've done is:
But I get linking errors:

The libraries are all there, though, where one would expect to find
them. And non-static compilation works fine (with the right version of
Is there something I need to pass to configure to make this work?
Alternatively, is it possible to install older ffmpeg libraries, etc,
alongside the newer ones and tell minidlna to use those? If so, how?

While reading about the recently found SSH vulnerability, I came across
a rather uncontested opinion that fail2ban does not work with IPv6,
e.g. see this reddit thread:
Personally, I found the "parse log files to ban" idea a bit shaky to
begin with. The same thread mentions pam_shield (also available in the
Fedora repos). A bit of reading on it makes it seem more robust than
fail2ban. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or opinion
on this topic.
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
I'm trying to enable the fedora-source and updates-source repos, using
sudo dnf --enablerepo=fedora-source repolist
The result of the command is that the fedora-source seems enabled
(it has a * in front of its name) but there is no
fedora-source.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/
Can anyone say me how to proceed?
