This morning, I upgraded to fedora 23. When that was done, I tried to
do a "prelink -aR". No such command! The system offered to install it
for me (nice touch!). I said yes. But it could not find it. What
happened to prelink? Is it now considered useless?
I am facing a strange problem with xfce configuration: when I put a
commercial video dvd in the drive: no icon appears on the desktop. and
there are error messages in /var/log/messages, like:
blk_update_request: I/O error, dev, sr0 sector 9137664
buffer I/O error on dev sr0, logical block 1142208 async page read
But, I can play the video with vlc without any problem....
If I mount this dvd (say: mount /dev/sr0 /media), no problem, no error
When I umount the dvd (umount /media), an icon appears on the desktop
and immediately disappears.....
This problem does not occur with dvd I recorded myself, nor with any
other removable media (usb sticks or drives).
Thank you for any help.

I had a couple of issues to sort out with installing the Docker
Discourse app and while that was being done people made these comments:
"Devicemapper is non starter, fails spectacularly under load and causes
corruption. We block setup if we detect devicemapper. You need aufs or
another better supported docker filesystem."
- which was not true - it did install without resorting to aufs.
"Redhat team get very upset when we mention that it just does not work
for us, but release after release they say there are no bugs left, and
each time we keep seeing Discourse users complain about corruption due
to device mapper."

I wanted to report on Bugzilla that the IEEEtran style file was quite outdated and needed an update. However, it appears that on BZ there is no entry to list it under. The only choices I get there are: texlive-extension, texlive-texmf and texlive-texmf-errata and texlive itself. It is in the Fedora 23 updates repo so I am confused how to file it.
The updated cls (yes, I know I can get it down on my own and use it, and that is what I am doing now) is at

it belches out:
Error getting authority: Error initializing authority: Could not
connect: No such file or directory (g-io-error-quark, 1)
a few more lines about some other activity ...
and the system does not proceed any further.
SO how can I debug this, or is this the normal behavior?
If normal, since which release?
>From my desktop, I am now unable to print to a printer that is attached to
another host on my network. The error I see in the journal is:
Mar 20 15:28:49 cobweb.gregandeva.net cupsd: Set
job-printer-state-message to "No destination host name supplied by
cups-browsed for printer \"epson\", is cups-browsed running?", current
cups-browsed is running. The same thing happens if I restart it.
Anybody have any ideas how I can debug this? I tried setting LogLevel to
debug in cupsd.conf, but I don't see anything useful in there (maybe
because I have no idea what to look for).
One odd thing is that the printer name is "EPSON" (upper case). I don't
know if that's important or not.
Is there a plan to distribute the last version of seamonkey (2.40)
with fedora ?

What do I need to start docker on btrfs on f23?
I am trying to compile the kernel from the source for kernel
4.4.3-300 but the compile is failing even though I have downloaded
kcbench to get the module source code. I have looked in
arch/x86/entry/syscalls in the kernel source and syscall_32.tbl is not
there, all that is in that directory is Makefile. Have I downloaded the
wrong source package, or should I just try and find where it has been
placed in the kcbench-data directory and copy it over?
On my Fedora 23 systems, /var/cache/PackageKit/metadata/updates/packages
is full of .rpm files. For example, 2.7G on my desktop.
/var/cache/PackageKit/metadata/fedora/packages has some too.
"sudo dnf clean packages" doesn't seem to change this. What does it
What is the purpose of this directory of RPMs?
Why is it considered metadata?
The more obvious place would be /var/cache/PackageKit/downloads/
Why isn't this used?
Is there a way of transplanting the RPMs to another system so that
downloading could be avoided? I have half a dozen fedora systems and
it seems a waste to download each update for each system.
What is the proper way of deleting these RPMs to free up the space? I
ask because on some machines (but not all) the space is burdensome.
