I now have six man-hours of web-surfing and emailing and playing
FreeCell and Mahjonng on my new Ryzen 3 1200AF computer,
( with Rawhide as the only OS. )
Rawhide got the new point-release of *systemd* today and has lots
of Gnome 3.38.0.x stuff now.
Based on my experience with the new Ryzen 3 1200AF, that is all one needs
if they are not doing anything fancy on their computer. The four
cores are churning at around 15% while several Firefox tabs are open
and a YouTube video is playing.
And right around 2.19 GB of RAM.
I was only able to get the RAM up to 2733 MHz, but that might
be due to me not having any clue how to properly over-clock the
RAM. My RAM profile is 3200. It might have something to do
with the Ryzen 3 1200 or the slots that I chose to put the memory sticks.
way, it is all over my I.Q., and not a concern at the moment.
I have not yet tried to over-clock the Ryzen 3, but I have a huge
air-cooler, so maybe someday.
Power Color Radeon 5500XT seems to be a good choice if you
can find one on sale, and you just want value. I won't be
able to post any gaming results.
I can only imagine next summer, people using Fedora 34, on
a really inexpensive Ryzen 3 computer. Hopefully, by then
I will still be in Rawhide, but on a Ryzen 5 or 7, with a 5700XT,
cause I like to be on the cutting edge when I play FreeCell. LOL !

I was wondering if I could use my android tablet for drawing in Fedora?
There are a few apps on the google market allowing to send the commands,
for example, to host:port, but it requires drivers on the computer side. Is
there a solution for fedora? I'm specifically interested in using it for
Registered Linux User #487982.
Spandex is a privilege, not a right.
My Fedora network is:
Usually I run wayland, then I can share the laptop to the desktop.
If I try to share the desktop to the laptop after password request i get a
blak screen (but the mouse arrow is visible). If I start a Xorg session I
can share the desktop to the laptop even if it is ugly. any hint???
Linux Fedora 32
I did an update this morning on my FC32 system and as there was a
kernel update I rebooted the system, it didn't come back up properly
and instead dropped me into the emergency shell.
I've had a quick look around and can't see anything obvious to explain
why it is doing this?
Any ideas on how to troubleshoot why it's dropping me into the
emergency shell so I can try to fix what's going on?
When I run:
qemu-img convert https://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/32/Cloud/x86... disk.img
It fails with the following message:
qemu-img: curl: The requested URL returned error: 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable
qemu-img: error while reading sector 2560: Input/output error
Seems like maybe the http server is not configured properly. I couldn't find a better place to report the issue.
I'm not sure how widespread this is, but I recommend being cautious
about updating the kernel if you're using "Intel Rapid Storage" RAID.
(I.e. make sure that you have console access so that you can boot the
previous kernel if necessary.)
In Soviet Russia, Google searches you!
With online instruction for large classes continuing into the near future, I am looking at writing tablets and wondering if any of these can be
integrated into Fedora. My examples are from:
I am not sure if these can do what I am hoping that they can, but I am thinking of something hooked to my machine that is essentially like an
Elmo and can be "projected" via a share screen (using zoom) and recorded (using, say, simplescreenrecorder).
Do these things exist? Any suggestions? I do not want to give up my current machine, and buying an unnecessary tablet laptop because that would
fragment my workspace (computer).
Many thanks and best wishes,

A few months back, I had lots of trouble with what should have
been a routine, by-the-book dnf upgrade from one version of Fedora to
another. What turned out, after much frustration, to have been the
trouble was that I had several sort-of-duplicates: rpms the same except
that one was .i686 in addition to another that was .86_64.
I have just done a dnf upgrade, which installed
libFAudio-20.09-1.fc32.i686 and libFAudio-20.07-1.fc32.i686. Should I now
do dnf remove *.i686?

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
recently I noticed that when I plug in a USB key it doesn't show in the device
notifier and it doesn't ask as usual what to do with it.
-I am on F32 with KDE and sddmm as login manager.
-when I plug in the key it appears in dmesg
usb-storage 2-1:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected
scsi host6: usb-storage 2-1:1.0
-lsblk sees it
sdb 8:16 1 29.4G 0 disk
└─sdb1 8:17 1 29.4G 0 part
-I usually had it in /etc/fstab as
/dev/sdb1 /media/disk auto rw,exec,noauto,user,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
As I like to mount it only if I want, but I tried without the noauto and without
-The device notifier is configured to mount automatically devices when plugged
in, but when I open it it says "no devices available".
-If I try "mount /media/disk" as user it works without any problem.
And I am sure it worked before.
It seems that the problem is that the system sees it but the device notifier
doesn't. Is there a recent update that could have caused this?
I am trying to create a bootable USB drive for Fedora 33 or Rawhide,
but the only computer I have access to tonight is a Chromebook.
My first attempt ( on my new Ryzen computer ), booted to the screen where
it ask if I want to start Fedora
or test the media, and the test immediately failed. I did not try to
try the option to start Fedora. ( this was the latest iso of Fedora 33
happyassassin website. )
My second attempt was a different iso ( Rawhide LXQT, but that one stated
it was just the most recent built ). That one would not boot.
So at the moment, I am not sure if one can use a Chromebook to successfully
create a good USB drive. It seems plausible.
I will try at least one more time.
Here is a summary of the steps. 1 ) rename Fedora.iso to Fedora.bin 2 )
open up the
"Chrome Recovery Tool" from there is works similar to Fedora
ImageWriter. ( They
probably stole it. LOL ! ) So is there any chance it would only make a
suitable for a Chromebook installation. It does not give you choice of
changing the format
type. So I do not know if it changes it. Prior to that I tried Fat32.
My other option is to use the Linux container. and the dd command.
Right ?? How hard
could that be. But I do not see how the container can see the USB
drive. I can share the
contents of the drive with the Linux container though.
All this is way above my deteriorating I.Q.
P.S. I have just built a Ryzen 3 1200AF system with ASUS motherboard and
to ethernet. Is there some other way to get Fedora on it ??
For some reason, my old SSD with Fedora on it would not boot. I
probably electrically fried the
SSD mishandling it. I have some other Linux SSDs, and probably with
Fedora 31 on them.
but they are not accessible this week.
