I am needing a bit of help. I am converting some of my old crontab
entries to xxx.timer and xxx.service systemd files. I have the following
(the system is a backup server that can be woken by magic packets or
some amount of time before the backups run):
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/rtcwake -m mem -t $(/usr/bin/date +\%s -d 'today
23:50') > /dev/null
Invalid escape sequences in line, correcting: "/usr/sbin/rtcwake -m mem
-t $(/usr/bin/date +\%s -d 'today 23:50') > /dev/null"
Is there a way to correct this easily, or am I going to have to turn
that line into a separate shell script?
On a newish computer with F25, I see this at the command line when I type
in a command that's not installed:
[matt@envious ~]$ pv
bash: pv: command not found...
and then it just sits there until I ctrl-c or similar. I assume what's
happening is it's trying to check for what package provides that command,
Has anyone else seen this? What can I do about it?
Apologies if this is a common error--it's resistant at least to the search
terms I can think of.

File a bug report with this info. Try adding "noapic" to the kernel
Thanks for your input... I'll contact the test group.
rpm -q qt5-qtvirtualkeyboard
package qt5-qtvirtualkeyboard is not installed
I just installed a ton of packages to this system and all of a sudden I have this virtual keyboard. Yes, you guessed it, I don't know which package brought me this head ache.
This system is a Fedora 27 x86_64 (rawhide). I'm using KDE. The monitor is a Samsung 27" TV and has NO touch screen capability that I'm aware of. I am using ONLY the TV as a monitor... the one on the laptop is disabled as far as KDE is concerned.
Any/all help hints/tips would be GREATLY appreciated.

You mean you installed a bunch of packages without knowing what they
were or how they may affect your system? And, your running rawhide
which is for testing and whose questions should really go to the "test"
Well, anyway, sounds like you could have installed qt5-qtvirtualkeyboard.

Hello, I am glad to announce that KeepassXC just arrived into Fedora
KeePassXC is a community fork of KeePassX, a native cross-platform port
of KeePass Password Safe, with the goal to extend and improve it with
new features and bugfixes to provide a feature-rich, fully
cross-platform and modern open-source password manager.
A new important feature that will be introduced probably in future 2.3.0
release, is the PKCS#11 support, in order to let users access to the
database using security devices like smartcards and usb sticks like

I encountered weird Ryzen 7 freeze when playing youtube video, it kinda stuck in a few seconds loop, the computer was unusable and had to hard reset. While I will be trying to pull out something useful from logs next time (I don't have persistent journal set), anyone experienced the same? This is up-to-date Fedora 25, I was using Google Chrome stable.
Is this something to do with Ryzen bug FMA3? How do I check? I do have latest BIOS update, but unsure how to check this bug. Is there a test? I also have older GeForce card, using open source drivers.
Thanks for any hints which direction I should dig. Thanks.
The "f24 boot fails; need help" problem set me back a week. I'm still
catching up. I seriously believe it would be foolish for me to just
forget it. I should for the benefit of others try to get at the real
cause and possible prevention.
A few hours before the failure, I received and looked at an e-mail that
I'm almost certain was at least a spoof, and possibly malicious. I know
it contained html and links. I did *** not ***
click any of the links. I looked at it, and deleted it. It was viewed
in Thunderbird only. The message's "From" ended with "yahoo.com". My
question: It is highly improbable that that message had anything to do
with the boot failure. Am I correct?
Also a few hours before the failure, I did some web browsing using
Firefox with NoScript and uBlock Origin. As best as I recall, the
"riskiest" sites that I visited were finance.yahoo.com (and a few of its
sub-pages, I clicked no ads, no ad links) and indeed.com (possibly and a
posting or two). My question: It is highly improbable that my web
browsing had anything to do with the boot failure. Am I correct?
I'm struggling to configure the audio output of my Fedora 25
installation. I'd like to find a way to easily switch between front
audio (headphones) and line out in Gnome Shell without physically
plugging/unplugging any jacks.
So to clarify my setup is as followed (on ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS Mainboard
with Realtek ALC887 Audio Codec):
* Headphones connected to the front headphone jack of my case via
internal mainboard header
* Amplifier connected to green jack on the mainboards backpanel
When both, amp and headphones, are connected, the sound is only played
via headphones. In the Gnome audio settings the the line out output
device disappears and there is only the headphones output device.
Then I used alsamixer so change "Auto-Mute Mode" from [Enabled] to
[Disabled]. This way sound is played via amp and headphones
simultaneously. Gnome audio settings still shows only the headphones as
output device. I can than change Volume of "Headphones" and "Front" via
alsamixer separately to get any mute/unmute combination I want but
obviously this is neither comfortable nor compatible with any gnome
extensions that would let me change output easily (like

I tried to upgrade my F25 to kernel-4.11.x and I can't boot with it.
I have two independent F25 installs, one on ssd and one on sda - boot
switched from bios menu. Both failed to boot 4.11.x
Immediately after selecting 4.11.x my system freezes without any
message (tried without rhgb, etc. with no luck)
The older 4.10.17 and 4.9.14 are ok. So not a grub problem.

as this is the first time I'm using Fedora, I noticed the following ...
(a) when open a SSH connection, it tells e.g.

all other Linux VMs and/or the Router box show there

(b) when configuring Firefox using a proxy, this works only
when entering a IP address; when entering a DNS name
a 'Proxy server not found' error is the result ...
(c) when configuring a line printer I had to enter e.g. this
when entering a DNS name e.g. printer.local
then this result in a 'printer.local' could not be found;
a nslookup shows the correct IP addresses
this means the DNS server is working properly ...
Thanks for explanations,
