This was a question asked of me by one of our network admins.
Today, while doing the updates on my machine at work, one of the
packages was close to 300MB in size. Yum tried to download this file
multiple times with no success. It kept timing out with the below 1000
Bytes/second for over 30 seconds.
In one case, the file was at 99% complete when it stopped. Restarted on
a different mirror at 0%
Due to firewall rules there is bandwidth management and it allows
downloads to start at a high speed only to slow down at 25MB.
The network admin asked if Fedora was like Ubuntu that will continue
downloading where it left off? I stated I doubted it as the display
kept going back to zero
With a Dell Precision M4600, running Fedora 21, I've started experiencing
troubles with my X sessions within the last six months. The symptoms is that
X frezzes, and sometimes, but not always, I can switch to a VT and make a
controlled shutdown. At other times, the machine is totally unresponsive,
and the only resort is to force a powerdown. I cannot state a more precise
date for the first occurrence, as I wrote it off as thermal problems.
However, after a vacuum session, the problem persisted, so I dug into the
system logs. In /var/log/messages, I find the following pattern on each

The frequency of the lock-ups are independant on wheter Optimus Prime is
enabled or not.
Has anyone seen something similar to this before, and if so, what cures have
Earlier, I'd asked about what was causing abrt to claim that my laptop's
kernel was tainted, even though I don't know of anything that would
cause this. Somebody asked me to check a certain location in /proc,
which turned out not to exist on the laptop. I'd like to check again,
and check it on my desktop as well because I know the desktop's kernel
is tainted by kmod-nvidia, and that would give me a good way to compare
a known-tainted kernel with my laptop's. Alas, I've lost the email with
the pointer in it. If anybody remembers what I'm supposed to check,
please let me know. Thanx!
I'm looking for Fedora 20 dkim-milter package (which was in F19 and
lower), but it seems as it isn't available - probably not even in
the F21). Know anyone?
Where can I see the fate of the packages that were formerly and now
are not it (e.g. LTSP and others) ?
TIA, Franta Hanzlik
I just received a Raspberry Pi 2b as a birthday gift. Apparently the
operating system must be stored on an micro-SD card, the o/s can be
downloaded but I have to get the SD card and whatever is required to
program it from Fedora 21 or 22, or buy one preprogrammed.
Perhaps someone with experience there can enlighten as to what I need to
order to do this?

This worked fine on my older Android Photon Q so I expected the same on
this new Galaxy S5. I plugged in the cable, found the mount point and,
as my guest1 user, located the filesystem and files. I saw they were rw
(read/write) and thought all was well. I tried to tar the whole thing up
and noticed errors. Here's some more detail:

Not sure I have ever seen a situation like this. I can change the phone
from MTP to PTP mode but then all of the files do not show up (but I can
copy the files that do). I tried looking at this issue on the net but
all I got was noise.
This is on:
Fedora release 21 (Twenty One)
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)

Thanks in advance for any help. I should have checked this right when I
got the phone but didn't think of it.

I am running a fully patched Fedora 21 system. We are trying to give it a
long term lease in the DHCP server, but the MAC address sent changes on
every boot. The MAC address seen at the DHCP server is not actually valid.
The DHCP server is like Win2008 Server R2.
I don't know why, but after rebooting my f21 server it goes to the 'initial
setup' screen. It's already all setup - how can I get out of this?
