I've got an odd problem that I was hoping for some help on.
The laptop was previously working fine, I am running F30, updated regularly.
I've got an Acer laptop that has been shutting down suddenly. (I
suspect a bad battery, working on that.)
After a sudden shutdown last night, I now get a kernel panic on boot
right after "Starting Switch Root..."
I was able to boot from a USB stick, and was able to read the journal,
but I didn't see anything obvious to help.
I was able to get all of my data off of the (encrypted) disks, so
that's not a problem, but I don't want to just give up, and wash and
reload too quickly.
With the SystemRescueCd I backed up the /dev/sda6 partition in /mnt/backup/ naming "diskimage"
After backing up operation the file has the automatic extension like "diskimage.000".
Is this file ok to restore?
If I name it "diskimage.gz" then it is automatically renamed with this extension "diskimage.gz.000"
But here below
the file is name like this:
Do I have to name with the .pimg extension during backup to restore correctly?
And how can I restore it?
I upgraded to F31 late last week and I am missing the MiscFixed 16 font that I prefer using. Where would I find it?

I am developing a Qt app in Fedora 31 using the default GNOME wayland session and I am very sorry to see the state of Qt in this configuration.
1) qt creator crashes often (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1773356) the crash report tool does not seem to help
2) drag & drop does not work in Qt creator (and in no other Qt app) (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1774762 and https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80303)
3) main window geometry cannot be restored when the application restarts (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80612)
I think GNOME / Wayland / Qt it is just not ready and should not be offered as the default desktop session for Fedora.
If I force Qt to use X11 emulations, things are much better.
Probably Qt is responsible (but in the bug reports someone says that KDE / Wayland works well), and GNOME is not Qt, but there are so many Qt apps, that sending new users to a non working environment re-enforces the fact that "just works" is not true in Linux.
Last week, I was to participate in a "Zoom" meeting for a charity that
I'm involved in. I have the needed software on my rarely-used windows-7
box. But I could not complete the windows-7 login (some problem with a
windows-7 service). I've since found there is a "Zoom" client for
Fedora. "dnfdragora" does not find anything for it. But I found a web
page that I hope has what I need. I've downloaded the package
("zoom_x86_64.rpm"), and I've downloaded a "Public Key"
("package-signing-key.pub"). The web site from which I've downloaded
these also has a line:
Key fingerprint: [some 40 hex digit number]
1. Do the 2 files need to be in a specific place to do the install? If
2. Do I need to be "root" to do the install?
3. What do I do with the "Key fingerprint"?
4. How do I do the install (preferably using "dnf")?
Something on sourceforge has been recommended to me, but I try to
stick to things that dnf can install. Surely there must be some Fedora-
native ebook reader!

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I have been using ethernet up to now. I went to enable the wifi, to see
no wifi listed.
It has been too long since I have had to do this troubleshooting. Can
some point me to what I need to look at to find what the Fedora thinks
is the wifi?
k....I'm just gonna ask this:
Why is it now that when I get notifications for updates I'm being
prompted to "restart & Install"?......
W T H!????
Is this WINDOWS!?.......I have enjoyed the fact that I could update my
system and use my computer until I was ready to shutdown / restart at my
leisure. Now?....there's a funky button up top of the Software Updates
(after its found packages to update) that says "Restart &
Install"?......is there ANY way possible to TURN THIS CRAP OFF!!?? Is
there some config file I can alter that will make this GO AWAY!? (I know
I'm acting like a lunatic, but I was in the IT field since the Windows
NT 4.0 days...and after finding Linux?...I have enjoyed NOT having to
restart after updates.) Please Fedora Admins.....Fedora Magical
Unicorns......Fedora High Council Wizards....PLEASE find a way to make
this just GO AWAY!?....
I'm receiving emails from a lot of customers that use Microsoft
Sometime I receive the emails with winmail.dat attached.
Evolution is unable to display it correctly.
If I use ktnef to open the attachement I have other problems.
Some of the problems found on ktnef are solved with ytnef.
I had look at google solutions and I found that evolution can be
compiled with tnef plugin enabled, but it seems Fedora don't do it.
Can I understand why, and if there is a simple way to obtain tnef
support working on the box with Evolution?
I'm using Fedora 31 with Evolution 3.34.2
