I've tried posting this message via the web interface yesterday, but I
don't see it in the archives. So I'm sending it again by regular email.
I have two speakers:
$ hcitool scan
AC:89:95:DA:52:5E Beoplay M5_27502524
00:12:6F:3F:BD:D5 Mu-so Qb BT 7047
I can connect via bluetooth to both using my Android phone.
I can connect via bluetooth only to Mu-so using Fedora 27.
If I try the bluetooth connection using GNOME setting, I don't get much
information. I just see that it tries the connection and after a while
On a terminal I get a timeout:
$ bt-device -c AC:89:95:DA:52:5E
Connecting to: AC:89:95:DA:52:5E
Error: Timeout was reached
Finally, journalctl seems to suggest that may be some kernel problem?!?
Mar 22 07:36:45 fedora kernel: Bluetooth: hci0: last event is not cmd
I found the same error message in this bug report, which is for Fedora
Thanks in advance for any suggestion

All of / on my main machine will go easily onto even a
modest thumb drive -- "df -h /" says only 11 GB; meseems I've
heard of other people keeping back-ups on thumb drives.
But what about the OS? If I were to put, say, the current
release of Fedora onto the same stick, would I be able to use
that, while visiting in-laws for instance, as if it were a live
CD =with= all my data?

Freedom is my issue : I'm pro-choice, pro-right-to-die,
pro-gun, and pro-term-limits. Without defiance, no liberty.
Upstream md/mdadm list ( linux-raid(a)vger.kernel.org ) archives have a
bunch of proscriptions on using mdadm to sync EFI System partitions.
Last time I checked circa Fedora 21, the installer would in fact let
you setup a raid1 and mark it for use as /boot/efi (i.e. the ESP).
There are a bunch of logical and domain violations by doing this, but
the biggest reason for not doing it is if there is a change to either
ESP, mdadm raid cannot resolve the ambiguity, and if it discovers
mismatches in sectors between the two drives, it can mix and match the
fixups: some sectors from A go to B, and some sectors from B go to A.
And that's because mdadm has no idea which one is correct, only that
they are different, and a resync just makes them the same again. So it
can end up corrupting both ESPs.
The firmware is allowed to modify the ESP even though this is probably
rare in practice.
Anyway, I think it's better to change the symlink in /etc/
grub2-efi.cfg -> ../boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
So that it points to /boot/grub2/grub.cfg just as it does on BIOS
systems. Then create a "forwarding" grub.cfg on /boot/efi that goes
and finds the real grub.cfg. The real grub.cfg is on either /boot or /
on some kind of RAID so getting GRUB to find it is actually pretty
easy: it will look for an md UUID (the mdadm raid volume ID) and then
it needs to look for a file system volume UUID. Since these things are
the same on all member volumes, so long as you have the minimum drives
needed for successful degraded operation, GRUB will find the real
And GRUB finds the forwarding one, just by the fact it's in the same
directory on /boot/efi/EFI/fedora as the bootloader.
It's possible to use the real grub.cfg as a template, and just chop it
down to a few lines needed to search for the two UUIDs. And then use
the configfile command to point to the path to the real grub.cfg.
The result is completely seamless jump from the ESP forwarding
grub.cfg, to the /boot real grub.cfg. And by changing the /etc
symlink, grubby will update the real grub.cfg. And this will survive
major version upgrades. And it's more compatible with upstream GRUB.
Effectively the contents of /boot/efi (the ESP) never get modified, so
they two ESPs are never out of sync.
Just, if for any reason you need to recreate the grub.cfg from scratch
you have to put it on /boot/grub2 rather than /boot/efi.
And in the event of shim or grub update, you'll want to sync the ESPs
with e.g. rsync which you can do manually, as a one time thing.
Fedora 27 x86_64. When DNF installs a new kernel, it isn't going into
the right place (/boot) and is not detected by GRUB. Why not?
For example, after installing the most recent new kernel, I see this.

I'm an happy Fedora user, I changed my laptop last year for a Razer
Fedora/Linux works well except for the known caps-lock key which just
crash the whole system when pressed:
I tried to add XKBOPTIONS="ctrl:nocaps" in /etc/default/keyboard.
The thing is that this solution doesn't seems to work on Fedora, not
easy to find what to search on Google, it looks like
/etc/default/keyboard isn't right config file.
I'm using Gnome with Wayland. Any idea?
This issue/feature is quite fun to show to friends(looks like an auto-
destruct key) but quite annoying when you press caps-lock by mistake
Yes getting it solved by Razer would be the best! But last time I asked
them something, I got:
Thank you for contacting Razer Support.
At this time, Razer does not officially support Linux. I am sorry for
the inconvenience this might cause you.
Have a nice Monday!
Xorg froze while playing a game with wine. Only the mouse worked (not even
the keyboard). I had to hard reboot.
Checking out the logs (journalctl) I saw repetitive nouveau errors.
(sorry, not at home, else I´d post them).
Other times I have been able to ssh into my machine and everything else is
working. I did not try this time (my secondary machine is down for the
My question is: How can I restart the Xorg server and/or the nouveau
If I could ssh into the system, I think I could just restart both and not
have to reboot the whole thing. It is more annoying that anything else
because the machine boots fast, but still I think it should not be

Dear fellow fedora users,
In including a soccer ball character in Unicode, I have found
And it works. I try to include in latex document and the character does not show up. I have tried different variations
And none seem to work. Is there an easy way to include Unicode chars in latex.
When I log-in, sound is deactivated and I have to manually start it, doing:
killall -9 pulseaudio
3- open mixer go to "configation" tab and choose analogic stero duplex.
What is wrong in my sound config and how to correct this.

I am sharing my learning outcomes.
Recently I downloaded Kali Linux 64-bit Version 2018.1 and ran it on
my HP laptop with the integrated Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260
Wireless Network Card.
I wanted to test if I could hack the Wi-Fi WPA password on Ruckus R700
Access Point (AP) and the Aztech DSL8900GR(AC) Wireless Router. So I
started using the Reaver WPA cracking tool.
I understand that the Reaver tool works because there is a bug with
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
I have no luck with Reaver on the Ruckus R700 Access Point. After
running Reaver, I found out that WPS is permanently disabled on the
Ruckus R700 AP with no option to turn it back on at all. Hence It is
not possible to hack the WPA password on Ruckus R700 AP.
Understanding that I couldn't do anything further with Ruckus R700 AP,
I proceeded to test Reaver on the Aztech DSL8900GR(AC) wireless
router. In this case, I also found out that WPS is disabled by default
on the Aztech wireless router. Reaver will not be useful at all if WPS
is disabled. But there is an option to enable WPS. So I enabled WPS in
the Aztech wireless router configuration page. And continued testing
with Reaver. But because Aztech wireless router has the rate limiting
security feature, brute force password attacks will be very slow and
probably take forever. The rate limiting security feature on the
Aztech wireless router is meant to slow you down when you are brute
forcing the WPS pin.
So here is my conclusion: Reaver Wi-Fi WPA hacking tool is totally
useless on new wireless routers which have the WPS disabled or have
implemented a fix for the WPS bug. Are there any other WPA cracking
tools which I can use in my educational learning journey? Please

I have been having random hangs on my new Ryzen workstation (Ryzen 5
2400G + B350 mobo). My hardware is supposedly properly supported on
4.15+ kernels. But I have been unable to boot with any of the ones in
That said, I can boot with older kernels, but the desktop hangs
randomly. When I say hang, I mean it freezes, and my only recourse is
to reset my computer. I have tried to login remotely, but then I get
"No route to host" from ssh. Looking at the journal, I can't figure
out what is causing these hangs. If someone could have a look, that
would be wonderful.
