I have a windows 10 qemu/kvm virtual machine hosted
on fedora 26.
Every time I leave it alone to apply updates (which takes
forever), I come back later and find the console saying
"Aaugh, there is no boot device!". I go into virt-manager,
force a reset, and it boots fine, but now it is only 30%
through applying updates, so I have to wait forever
Is windows 10 incapable of rebooting itself, or is qemu
busted somehow so that windows 10 attempt to reboot
doesn't work? This always seems to fail (but only with
updates - if I select reboot from the taskbar menu,
it always reboots just fine).
Anyone have a clue? Does this happen to anyone else?
After updating Firefox I got a message to "refresh" it--that is, remove
all add-ins. Foolishly I did so, thinking to reinstall them later using
But I have not been able to get Video Download Helper to work.
I followed their instructions to install a "companion application." That
means working in a terminal version (actually, Konsole; I'm working in
KDE). The messages I get all say the companion app is ready for use. But
after repeated shutdowns and restarts, VDH still will not download anything.
On trying to fire up a VM using virt-manager, I get "unable to map backing
store for guest RAM: Permission denied".
I use hugepages to lock down memory for the VM, which may be relevant for
the error. This worked correctly on F26 just before the upgrade to F27. I
have changed nothing in my VM configuration, nor in the config file for
QEMU. However, temporarily turning off SElinux allows the startup to
proceed, after which I can re-enable SElinux with no ill effects, i.e. the
VM runs correctly.
A complete relabel of my system (touch /.autolabel and reboot) has made no
The OpenSSH 7.6p1 was submitted for testing in Fedora 27 .
Unfortunately I didn't manage to get it out before freeze since all the
thing/bugs/upstream release somehow pilled up. On the other side, this
package was already tested quite extensively during recent months by
myself, using automated test cases and was in rawhide for last two
weeks, where we caught last issues.
If you have some "special" use case, please make sure it works for you
after the update and leave a karma.

A few days ago any time I try to view a web page that contains some Flash,
Firefox (56.0) hangs for about a minute, then does something, and hangs
again for a minute, etc. Until I kill the tab for that web page.
Chrome works fine. Firefox used to work too, but now it doesn't.
Has anyone seen this?
PS. I had originally followed the instructions here to install Flash:
Yesterday Thunderbird began asking for email passwords that it should
have been finding in its password file. Edit > Preferences >Security >
Passwords is empty, there should be two passwords there.
I don't know if this is something that has happened to Thunderbirdor
I have not seen others complaining so it must be a problem peculiar to
my updated system.
I would like to start a second profile but have not been able to figure
how that is done,Google seems to provide only information on profiles
for Windows systems.
I know I have a default profile, would like to add another to see if it
will create a passwords file that willsave passwords.
Any suggestions/help appreciated.

I usually have trouble upgrading because I keep a local repository of
packages and because they are shared via NFS dnf treats them as local files
and doesn't download them. I've worked around that (F25->F26) by disabling
it temporarily and distro-syncing after update.
I've also disabled my squid package cache proxy just in case but still the
problem remains. I haven't seen anything on the list and most of the google
search results are not for F26 to F27 upgrades so does anyone have a clue
what's going on?
Now that Mozilla has provided us with its latest and greatest (sic!) Firefox, I need to prevent updates to firefox. Dnf does not appear to provide a "don't update this" option. Any suggestions?
The package mozilla-adblockplus is now disabled in all supported versions of Fedora, which have FF57 in stable. I filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1513731 but no response yet. I can't find any sign of recent activity by the assignee, Andreas Thienemann. The last few builds of mozilla-adblockplus were by rathann (FAS name, don't know full name) who just posted builds for the new mozilla-noscript-10.1.1 (very quickly BTW, was just posted upstream a little while ago). Does anyone know if Mr. Thienemann is still active?
