I don't think this is normal but I will like to know if anyone is
experiencing high memory usage from gnome-shell, a week ago was the first
time I saw it and to be honest, I can't say it this is something recent of
if it has always been this memory hungry.
After having my laptop with Fedora 24 on for three days I can see that the
memory consumed by gnome-shell is over 2GB and a week ago it was consuming

Is anyone experiencing this problem?
I have a network printer (that I can see on the computer server browser at
When I try to use it, the jobs are not processed... - and I get the
* " the printer is not responding".*
I fund this information at link ;
All jobs are "The printer is not responding"
On networked printers, you should check that the name that CUPS uses as its
connection URI resolves to the printer's IP via DNS, e.g. If your printer's
connection looks like this:
then the hostname 'BRN_020554' needs to resolve to the printer's IP from
the server running CUPS
I understand what this means...
but I don't know how to accomplice the task*: *
* resolve that the IP from the server running CUPS *
Any help to do this will be appreciated.
My usual mode of operation when updating OSes is to use a new Hard Disk
and install the latest version of the OS (sometimes bleeding edge) and
to keep the old disk as an archive drive. So I have a lot of old drives
and recently I have been going back through the old SATA and then IDE
drives - which has been an interesting archaeological dig! Today I
started looking at stuff on this old RH server which was used as a Qmail
mail server, EZMLM mailing list manager and a host for a few small web
sites. It had not been looked at since the machine had been turned off
a long, long time ago - to my surprise it booted up with no problems!
Now all I need to do is daisy-chain the Adaptec SCSI controller to an
external box with another 4 SCSI drives in it to complete the
It was a little strange but pleasant looking at all this very old stuff
- knowing with hindsight how the users, lists and sites developed after
their modest beginnings. I guess I got a bit nostalgic and decided to
continue to keep the box (it is the only old box I have that can
accommodate the old Adaptec ISA board) but it occurred to me that it
would be an interesting exercise to try and virtualise the system - is
this possible? - could I create an image from the old 2GB SCSI boot disk
and run it as a virtual machine somehow?
For the record, my first RH OS was v4.0 - which I used in a commercial
environment (we told the boss it was an updated version of UNIX!) - I
had used a variety of other distros for fun going back to Slackware and
before that Softlanding Linux System (SLS):
RH upset me when they took their distro completely commercial and I was
cranky for a while but I was very happy when RH finally realised their
mistake and createde Fedora Core 1 - which I eagerly lept into!
Also, I still have my first-ever (electronic) computer (I had a plastic
one when I was kid that had three bits and the clock cycle involved
manually pushing and pulling a lever . .) - an Exidy Sorcerer from 1978
which had to have programs and data loaded from audio audio cassettes
and my first computer with floppy disks - the luggable Osborne 1
I wouldn't be surprised if I could still boot them up as well! . .
although it would be a fair bit more messing around . .

I have a paid subscription of an online streaming service Hotstar.com in
India. The problem is, they are using some Flash based DRM technique with
their videos due to which they don't play on Fedora 24 Workstation. I only
get a movie not loaded message in context menu of flash player.
I searched about this issue and found few things to try like using
freshplayer to get PepperFlash or installing the HAL shim library. But none
of these methods seems to work with Fedora 24. Can anybody hep me out with
this? It is so frustrating to go back to Windows just to watch my favorite
Thanks in advance.
recently I re installed firefox (in order to have the new firefox 49).
Till now, to install programs, I always used yum or rpm, and never I used
the .tar file.
After I unpacked the .tar file, I was immediately able to run the new
version of firefox simply creating a new symbolic link point to the new
version to the file executable, *without changing anything in the files**
unpacked files inside the directory where I dowloaded **the file .tar**
That is very simple as it is also very good …
But I am asking to myself if I really made all in the right way....
Of course, in order to use an application, it is enough to run the
executable file -
But, under usual conditions, they are many other files that support the
Generally they are not inside the directory where I unpacked the .tar
Generally they are put in some appropriate directories.... and I didn't
change anything never I modified or move files after I unpacked files in
the original directory .
The organization of the programs, inside the directories of the computer,
is managed by the programs that manage the installation... and in my case I
didn't make anything..
So I would ask what is the correct way to arrange files after to unpack the
.tar file for a program like firefox.

I recommend using the net install / minimal image. I actually use it every time, even if I want the GUI. If you don't want to download all of the packages e dry time, the server install is the one you want.
I need to install fedora with only text mode available. I don t need
graphical desktop installed.
Is there a way or an image that allows this?
