I have a Samsung SH-S223B DVD writer and want to upgrade its firmware,
but the firmware upgrade is only provided as an .exe file for W*****s,
which I don't and won't have. Is there a way to install this from Linux?

For a long time now, the smplayer (from RPMFusion) volume control is
vertical, instead of horizontal, with a negligible height, so it's
essentially useless. This is still true with the latest version
smplayer-16.1.0-1.fc23, and even after deleting ~/.config/smplayer. Do all
Fedora users see this, and can it be fixed?
Having entered the age of digital photography with the purchase of a Samsung NX3000, I would like to be able to mount it. Fedora 23 sees the device on USB, but I can't find anywhere the file system type. Any clues on how to discover this? Thanks.
I have a dos partitioned drive.
partition 1 has windoze
there is no partition 2 (it was deleted and it's space added to partition 1,
using the old software called "Partition Magic".
partition 3 is fedora
partition 4 is fedora's swap.
Fedora partition is only using 3% of it's available space:
$ df -k /
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 903432024 24820728 832696536 3% /
$ df -k /sda1
/dev/sda1 42015740 41972804 42936 100% /sda1
Can parted handle
1. shrinking partition 3 (i.e. starts at a numerically higher block
2. fixing the installed grub so that I can still boot fedora,
or would I have to boot a live fedora and install grub from
3. adding the freed space to partition 1 so that windoze can
see it and use it as part of it's partition 1?
P.S: I will be backing up sda3, so no fear there. Ditto with sda1.
I haven't upgraded my machines in a while and I couldn't find any
reference on how to install directly from the hard disk, without media.
Is this still possible? None of my pcs boot off of a usb stick and the
cdrom I think is failing on one of them, so I really need to install from
the disk. Any suggestions? Thanks!
a project i was recently introduced to uses, quite heavily, the
notion of overlaying header file directories with the now-obsolete gcc
"-I-" option, and i'm curious if there are equivalent solutions that
don't use that feature.
summary: sizable C (and possibly, not sure, some C++) code base
contains numerous, quote-surrounded header file includes of the form:
... etc etc ...
where the header file "h2.h" is frequently in the same directory as
"h1.h" *but* it may not be the one that should be included.
instead, the build system is currently replete with gcc build
commands of the form:
$ gcc -I- -Id1/ -Id2/ -Id3/ ... and so on and so on ...
and "-I-" is used to force the preprocessor to resolve references to
"headerfile.h" not by looking in the current directory first, but by
scanning a list of "overlay" directories to see if someone has
registered a "higher-priority" header file by that name. it's not the
most intuitive build structure i've ever seen but it's been around for
quite some time and it works and its users really don't want to have
to mess with it.
[SIDE NOTE: the current usage of "-I-" in this project is not so much
to "split" the header file search path as that option is used right at
the *beginning* of all the "-I" options, so its use is to simply
refuse to look locally for header files and immediately start scanning
the "-I" directories. but that doesn't really change the problem to be
predictably, now that gcc 5 has obsoleted the "-I-" option, one
would like to find an alternative that doesn't require a wholesale
reworking of the build system. since the build system runs on centos,
my current thought is to use "funionfs" to unionize those overlay
directories in the same priority sequence.
i just tried a trivial funionfs example and it seems to work, but is
there a simpler solution? the gcc folks, in deprecating, then
obsoleting, the "-I-" option, insist that one can use "-iquote"
instead, but that is clearly incorrect -- the requirement here is that
resolving a preprocessor include of the form:
*must* *not* look in the current directory first. if there is some way
to get that effect without "-I-" and without some sort of unionfs, i'd
like to know what it is.
thank you kindly.

Anyone have any idea why only fedora systems would give this
error installing an rpm?
Installing : ccur-ntrace-ai-7.5-0.beta.75.x86_64 19/32
Error unpacking rpm package ccur-ntrace-ai-7.5-0.beta.75.x86_64
error: unpacking of archive failed on file
/usr/lib/NightTrace/illuminators/ccur_rt/ccur_rt.h;56fd10d8: cpio: Digest
error: ccur-ntrace-ai-7.5-0.beta.75.x86_64: install failed
The exact same rpm installs fine on a centos 7.2 system.
Even on fedora, if I use rpm2cpio and extract the files, there is
absolutely nothing wrong with the ccur_rt.h header file.
I just got 4 usb 802.11n nics, and they were not recognized by fedora 23??
Windows 10 did seem to have no problems, and they are rtl8192eu.
Did find a page that talked about getting them to work, but the install script
failed with errors. First Error was about __DATE__ and __TIME__ macros,
so found an option to add to the Makefile to ignore that.
The second error involved strnicmp issues, and eventually found a reference
to replace that with strncasecmp. With that change the script does seem to
complete. First time it didn't seem to work, but then the wlassistant was able
to see the device and was able to connect to a wireless hub.
Wondering if someone knows of a better solution?
