I just noticed a very weird problem on my workstation. Although the
machine has 64 GB of RAM installed,
$ head -n 1 /proc/meminfo
MemTotal: 2400748 kB
that is, only a few gigabytes are actually available.
Unfortunately I don't have physical access to the machine, which is a HP
desktop bought last fall. According to dmesg, the model is something like
[ 0.000000] DMI: HP HP EliteDesk 800 G3 TWR/8298, BIOS P01 Ver. 02.06
Also according to dmesg, it appears that the kernel *does* see all 64
gigs, BUT OVER 60 GB IS RESERVED MEMORY!!
[ 0.000000] Memory: 2326720K/66985176K available (12300K kernel code,
1568K rwdata, 3836K rodata, 2124K init, 1368K bss, 64658456K reserved,
Does anyone have any idea of what could be going on?
I am running an up-to-date Fedora 27 x86_64 with kernel
Fedora Project Contributor
Been reviewing/looking over various sysadmin related vids/sites for
setting up a complete test website.
I'm trying to find a "remote" sysadmin resource that I can talk
to/work with for a small project to setup/run a test website that's
Looking to :
-setup up basic/test site
-correctly handle apache/httpd.conf file
-correctly setup the access process/files for the web doc dir(s)
-setup selinux/perms/access process
-setup test mysql as well as test firewall rules
-handle firewall rules for ssh
-setup required users/perms/acls
Working with a skilled sysadmin this should be a quick process. Also
working with a person online/together would allow me to quickly dodge
any user screwups.
So if you know of someone, or if you're interested hit me up for a

Know anyone, when it is possible to configure slick for language
selection? Or I should rather switch back to lightdm-gtk?
I hope the Fedora will have a better init and no binary logs
I've one application which does run under wine and would like to print
its output to PDF. Attempt to filter output to PDF did not work I've
found out about cups-pdf. After installing it, attempt to print was
generating SELinux alerts which I solved (I belive) by following hints
$ sudo ausearch -c 'cups-pdf' --raw | audit2allow -M my-cupspdf
$ sudo semodule -X 300 -i my-cupspdf.pp
Now, there are no more alerts, but where is the output?
I've the following in my /etc/cups/cups-pdf.conf:
but the output is generated in:
so, I do wonder why the setting from *.conf file above is not honoured?
/var/spool/cups is 710 root:lp
/var/sppol/cups-pdf is 755 root:root
Moreover, status for cups service gives:
systemctl status cups
● cups.service - CUPS Scheduler

Main PID: 7571 (cupsd)

lip 20 08:36:53 mydomain.dyndns.net systemd: Started CUPS Scheduler.
so I also wonder if this is OK?
What do I miss?
Can someone provide some hints what is the best way to achieve
print-to-pdf under wine on Fedora (fc28)?
It is far better to discharge one's prescribed duties, even though
faultily, than another's duties perfectly. Destruction in the course
of performing one's own duty is better than engaging in another's duties,
for to follow another's path is dangerous.

That is what is should be. Just to confirm, if you use this on the command line does
it bring up dolphin?
Conjecture is just a conclusion based on incomplete information. It isn't a fact.
Upgraded a system from fedora 27 to fedora 28, and went to rebuild
busybox, and it fails with 3 header files missing?
With Fedora 27 the directory contains a number of header files, but with
fedora 28 it only contains netdb.h??
Fedora 27 shows glibc-headers as being the patchage that provides them,
and Fedora 28 has the package install, but a search on it results with no files
that provides the missing files.
Reinstalled the package, but still only the one netdb.h file?
Tried copying the missing files from Fedora 27 to the directory, and it gets
thru the compile process with them, but then gets errors during the link
process, since the libraries must be missing something?
