I have a system with a NVIDIA Geforce gt 610 video card. There don't
seem to be Fedora drivers for the 5.14 kernel. I see that Debian has a
patched version of the 390.144 driver in a .deb package but don't see
anything for Fedora. Is there a way to uses the .deb package?
A bit of a weird one I'm not sure whose fault it is.
When I open a video file the default GNOME video player (Totem) or with another GStreamer based video player (such as Clapper from Flathub), audio and video works fine. If I seek manually forward, audio is gone, while video keeps rolling. Sometimes, seeking forward another time fixes it, but not always.
Doesn't happen with mpv-based video players, nor with VLC. No error in stderr. Any idea what's going on and who might be the culprit? At least so I know where to open the bug report.
running sudo dnf remove kernel-core- ..., e.g.
sudo dnf remove kernel-core-5.14.18-300.fc35.x86_64
doesn't not cleanup /lib/modules/5.14.18-300.fc35.x86_64 completely.
a file "modules.builtin.alias.bin" in that directory and the directory itself is left over
I'm seeing this since F35 with *all* kernels
- only me ?
- known ?
- bugreport needed ?
I have two laptops loaded with the XFCE spin. One laptop began it's life as
Fedora 2x-something, and is now running 35, and I just reloaded the second
laptop with a fresh F35 install, and fully updated it.
Both laptops show "Adwaita" as their default theme.
The panel on the first laptop is very light gray, with black text, and looks
The panel on the 2nd laptop, the one with a new F35 load, is very dark grey
and lightly-colored text.
Both laptops claim to be using Adwaita.
Tiebreaker: I have a third laptop, also with XFCE, and also traces its
lineage to Fedora 2x. Its appearance matches the first one.
Why is a new F35 install's Adwaita theme different? It looks downright ugly.
On the other two laptops the Adwaita theme is light-colored, and is very
similar in its brightness to the High Contrast theme. There's only minor
differences, flipping between the two. But on the odd duck the Adwaita theme
is basically the negative of the other two.
Anyone know of an alternative to xrandr on Wayland that has proper Colorspace
and Broadcast RGB (Full) support? I want to
use Wayland (and get off of X.Org) for better trackpad gesture support but
am out of luck due to not having something that works with it.
If not, then I'm fine sticking with X11 for xrandr. I've been having trouble figuring out how to get my two xrandr commands to run at startup in GNOME 41.
On Ubuntu, the distro I use on my desktop, there's just a 'Startup Applications' app that I can add those commands and my DE will run them when I log in.
Can't seem to find anything like that on Fedora (GNOME Tweaks won't work, since that doesn't allow me to specify the command).
If it helps, the two commands I configure to run at startup are:
$ xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set "Broadcast RGB" "Full"
$ xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set "Colorspace" "XVYCC_709"
These two commands fix my primary monitor so it displays correctly running
off of my HDMI port. Otherwise black turns into a bright grey, and colors
look washed out.
I'd love to use Fedora and migrate off of Ubuntu fully, since it meets my
needs better, but I absolutely need to be able to run those commands
automatically at startup. Just having trouble figuring that out.
Any help to lead me in the right direction is appreciated!

Well, I don't have mate on bare metal and suspend a VM doesn't work.
In the screensaver settings do you have "Lock Screen with System Sleep" enabled?

I'm running my F35 desktop with MATE. If I wake up after having
suspended the box using some key, no
password is requested, whereas the Cinnamon (I used it in F34) desktop
requests it. This Missing password
request in MATE seems to be a security hole.

I'm used to reading messages in order of time of arrival. Threaded
display in Thunderbird, or the presentation of the archive by
Hyperkitty, doesn't do this; the current thread about NVIDIA drivers is
utterly disjointed in both, with recent posts buried at random partway
up the display. Is there a fix?
I freshly install F35 and Hexchat had a very boxy interface (like
default GNONE 2.0. I saw it was an issue with Hexchat and would be fix
at some point.
I just ran Gimp for the first time, started to customize the theme to my
liking and chosing the system theme I have this same 2D boxy look from
the 80's (** joke **).
So has anyone similar issue.. and eventually a fix?
