I'm trying to disable the spectre mitigations. I've set up
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
nomodeset rhgb quiet"
nomodeset pti=off spectre_v2=off l1tf=off nospec_store_bypass_disable
but the command line is not used when I update the kernel. I tried again
with dnf reinstall kernel*.
menuentry 'Fedora (4.19.2-200.fc28.x86_64) 28 (Twenty Eight)' --class
fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os --unrestricted
if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,gpt3
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root
resume=UUID=d695f875-5220-49ab-8b0d-4f58649cd8ad nomodeset LANG=en_US.UTF-8
And BTW, which kernel package contains the scriptlet that updates grub.cfg ?
I have a 64GB USB-Stick inserted to my Fritz!Box which is available as a
SMB mount point.
When I mount it "df -H" shows
Filesystem Size Used Avail . Mounted on
//fritz.box/nil 123G 38G 86G 31% /nas
All values are doubled (except the Use% of course).
What's going on there?
Kind regards, Frank
I just picked up one of these (still waiting on delivery!) and just wanted
an ack/nak on anyone else having any issues...
I was originally looking at the WD Black, for which there were some
controller issues found by googling... But there was a huge price drop on
the Samsung. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't trading one problem for

Can you Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get to a console to see what may be hung?

so I just upgraded an old Dell Optiplex 760 - Core 2 Duo - 686 class box
Fedora 28 -> 29
and all manner of things went wrong.
I had to fall back to runlevel 2 boot, and fiddled.
switching display manager to lightdm helped,
allowing a graphical boot again.
Resolution is very low, mouse arrow is huge.
it turns out that /sys/class/drm doesnt exist.
dmesg | grep drm is empty.
ISTM this is the problem - if the kernel doesnt know about the monitor
then resolution is not available to display manager either.
I was able to figure a horrid workaround,
by plugging in a better monitor and cold-booting
afterwards, I swapped vga connector back to original monitor,
it kept the same better resolution
I have built my own kernel, v4.20-rc3+
which works properly, and has /sys/class/drm/* as expected
I built it like
1- cp /boot/config-f29-mumble .config;
2- make localmodconfig
3- make xconfig - flip 64bit build off on this 32bit box
4- make; make install
Aside: I think step 3 should be unnecessary - build box == install box
which should correct/override any defaults taken from 1,
or by other operations of 2
I have since dnf updated, rebooted to 19.2, it exhibits same problem
and rebooting to rc3+ fixes resolution problem wo doing the nasty monitor swap
does anyone else seeing anything odd
(I presume) related to old 32bit hardware and video card ?
Hi all ,
I did un upgrade from Fedora28 to Ferdora29 (x86_64) , I had to add in
the procedure tho option --allowerase .
The Acrobat Reader does not funktionate anymore : So I tried to reinstall
it with AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i486linux_enu.rpm .
I get the message "build transaction failure , conflicting requests ;
nothing provides libidn.so.11 needed by AcrobatReader_enu-9.5.5-1.i486 .
How can I solve this problem ? _

I've been using sort for years and I just ran into something I've never
seen and I can't explain.
cat spam | sort -k1 -t"|" # this works!
cat junk | sort -k1 -t"|" # this doesn't
The two files spam and junk have the exact same first column, but one
gets sorted, the other doesn't. What am I missing?
