My USB camera, which is used only for online video chats, has quite
marked fisheye distortion. Although this could be regarded as a feature
in some contexts, for me it's just a distraction. Is there a way of
removing this in real time? I mostly use Zoom, but if possible I'd like
to tweak the video somewhere between the driver and the application, in
other words create a "virtual camera" that works the way I want,
perhaps analogous to how audio pipelines work in Linux.
Does anything come to mind that can handle this?

I installed a new disk with F34 and made the old disk with F33 on it the
backup disk - but I continued to use partition /dev/sdb5 mounted on
/home while I sorted out stuff. When I finally rsynced everything from
/dev/sdb5 to /dev/sda5 and mounted that on /home I got this weird
problem - I have never seen it before:
When /dev/sdb5 is mounted on /home everything works as expected but when
I umount that drive and then mount /dev/sda5 on /home and try and login
as user "phr", I get an "unable to change to dir /home/phr" message and
end up at "/". However, if I just type "cd" and enter, I end up in
/home/phr and everything seems to be working! The dirs, files and
permissions on both partitions seem to be identical so I am stumped
about what is causing this login error . . any ideas?

I was wondering if there was a way, or a step by step guide, to migrate
from Pipewire to Pulseaudio in Fedora 34.
I really like Pipewire, however the audio server does not yet support some
of the assistive technologies that I'd like to use, while pulseaudio does.
I can't go into much detail, because I just know less than half that I
I'd appreciate any answer.
i'm using mediawriter to write some images and i have a lot of messages like this:
W@31612ms: Error QNetworkReply::SslHandshakeFailedError reading from QUrl("https://getfedora.org/releases.json") : "SSL
In the browser the link seems fine .. is there any problem with mediawriter?
I am running F34 in a Vmware Player VM and have just done the first
boot after installing the update that installed Kernel 5.13.6-200, which
fails with a kernel panic saying it can't mount the root volume, but
Kernel 5.13.4-200 boots quite happily. Is this a known issue?
I'm having an issue with loading kernel modules after a kernel
update. Specifically I'm having an issue with loading virtual box
kernel modules. After an update I sign the modules according to the
information listed here
After signing the modules and verifying them via
modinfo <module> | grep "^sig"
I reboot the system. After booting the system I run lsmod to check if
the modules have been loaded and they have not. I go check the modules
again and I find they are no longer signed.
I resign the modules and rather than rebooting I run insmod to install
them and this works.
Now I also have vmware installed on the system and I follow the exact
same procedure to sign the vmware kernel modules and reboot the system
and when I do an lsmod after rebooting the vmware modules are loaded.
I even tried rebuilding both the virtual box and vmware modules from
source, resigned all the modules and rebooted and again only the vmware
modules are loaded. The virtual box modules no longer show they are signed.
Can anybody tell me why the virtual box modules are no longer signed
Any help is appreciated.
In the process to migrate from CentOS 8 to Fedora I saved the definition of various VMs using "virsh dumpxml vm_id > vm_id.xml“
According to the manual I can restore using "virsh define vm_id.xml“
But I get
Error: Can’t check QEMU program file /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm: file or directory not found
A "dnf provides '/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm*‘“ can’t find a package.
Do I miss something? Any idea?
