After upgrading to f26, I could no longer print. Some key file (ppi file?) was gone. After wrestling quite a while with this, I found a print driver (an rpm) for my Xerox WorkCentre 6015 on the Xerox web site, downloaded it, installed it, and got it working with help from cups. That driver is older than my workstation and my printer, each of which is more than 4.5 years old.
The driver I got being so old together with the key file disappearing has me wondering. What is the current "best practice" for driving, controlling, etc. this printer in f26?
I upgraded from f25 to f26 this afternoon. I didn't see any error messages, but a lot of messages went by very fast. After the verification step was done, the system automatically rebooted. After the three rectangles separately brightened and faded, the screen went blank. After over 15 minutes, still nothing. I did a hard reset. Same behavior. This is a dual-boot system; I am able to log in to windows-7.
I'm a home user, not a sys.admin. I do have f25 on a usb stick.
Thank-you in advance.
My Kodi, when VDPAU is disabled(in settings) ornot available
in OS, does not use VAAPI.
My fedora runs of a AMD APU A10 PRO-7800B R7 and since
4.12.x I have noVDPAU.
VLC for example, seems to be using VAAPI just fine, VLC's
debug and lowCPU usage confirms that VAAPI is there, yet
Kodi fails to use it.
Can you tell how is your Kodi handling VAAPIon your system,
ideally if you touse same family of AMD APUs?
many thanks, L.
Hello guys. I was upgrading Fedora with the system-upgrade plugin from 26 to 27. The upgrade process failed for unknown reasons (during the packages installing), my computer rebooted and I'm not able to use my Fedora :).
I booted up with LiveCD, chrooted to my broken Fedora and I tried to resume the upgrade process. Unfortunately there is a lot (>200) conflicting packages (for Fedora 26 and 27). I tried to use "dnf remove --duplicated", however it would like to remove also all dependent packages.
Q. What can I resume update/upgrade process having duplicated packages with DNF (install new packages and remove all)?
this is very first time I'm trying dual VGAs - my Richaland
APU lost VDAPU with recent mesa/kernel, so I thought I'd try
I use Asrock FM2A88X-ITX+ and just got brand new rx550.
question - how to get it work? what's preferable config?
I've tried but cannot disable onboard GPU.
It disables in the BIOS and I choose primary VGA to be RX550
yet when the f26 boots onboard GPU is still active and
actually seems to be primary VGA.
It's bit crazy - I use disk encryption so get prompt for
password - but this prompt gets output via onboard APU's gpu
whereas system(bios) boots with external PCIe to be primary.
And BIOS does set rx550 as primary, shows it's POST on
rx500, kernel selection to boot, initial boot and then...
blank, I've to go APU's vga to get password prompt.
Later in Gnome it's also not possible, well, I cannot
re-arrange VGAs using GUI.
Where has it all gone wrong? I've thought AMD's APUs where
out and in our boxes for so long that I should just work
Would you have some experience and advice you can share?
many thanks, L.
Maybe a little OT, but I would like to know if this is an issue related to
my phone/bluetooth, to Libreoffice or to Fedora 27.
I would like to use Libreoffice Impress remote and the related Android app
In a nutshell it doesn't work: the app doesn't see the remote Libreoffice
session, even if the PC and the Android phone are paired.
In journalctl the message that appears when I launch Libreoffice Impress is:
Oct 18 16:59:32 host bluetoothd: RFCOMM server failed for LibreOffice
Impress Remote: rfcomm_bind: Address already in use (98)
Anyone has any experience about it?
Is there an expected date for Apache 2.4.28 to be released for F25?
For F26 Apache 2.4.28 was released earlier this week. Apparently it
fixes a CVE, not a particulalry threatening one actually, and am
getting some pressure here to upgrade to Apache 2.4.28 on my F25
machine. I'd prefer to wait for it to be formally released rather than
just upgrade it independently.
This morning after booting, I can see the screen of sddm, fine.
But nobody can login from from there.
Going to a terminal, we can see this message:
system is booting up. see pam_nologin (8)
We discovered a /run/nologin file that we had to remove.
The log is provided below.
Any idea what is the cause of that?

Hi! In the wake of imminent release of F27 i upgraded to F26 :)
and libre office no longer starts :
starts with this :
X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
Extension: 153 (Uknown extension)
Minor opcode: 5 (Unknown request)
Resource id: 0xdc00034
X server found. dri2 connection failed!
DRM_IOCTL_I915_GEM_APERTURE failed: Invalid argument
and ends with this :
soffice.bin: Couldn't find current GLX or EGL context.
The thing is that i use Nvidia card (and driver)
glxinfo | head
name of display: :0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
GLX_ARB_fbconfig_float, GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_buffer_age,
and the acceleration is working ... (so on the nvidia part everything
Have anyone some idea about this?
