I have an iPhone .mov quick time video I need to play for my wife. I get
this message from Parole. When I click on install, nothing seems to happen.
How do I get this decoder installed?
Meanwhile, VLC will play the audio, but the video stays on the first
frame. What's with that?
Or maybe some other app is better?
It happens sometimes that someone launches a process that uses too
much memory. Then the computer starts swapping leaving the computer
completely out of use. When the swap is full (I guess), the process is
automatically killed and we can work again. But this can last 10-15
Would it be possible to kill any process using more than some LIMIT
memory? The aim being to kill it before it starts swapping.
Note that I am using F27 for now.
Thanks in advance,
Just curious, there has not been a kernel in testing for a while. When is the next kernel expected to land in Fedora? I guess that it will be a 4.18.3 now perhaps?

Dear Fellow Fedora users,
I had a script called upon by cron which played music at a certain time, for example
30 08 * * 1-5 ~/.dalarm
And .dalarm had
/usr/bin/mplayer -really-quiet -shuffle -playlist ~/.playlist
It worked, but I did have speakers, now. I do not have external speakers, but a monitor with speakers, if there is no activity with the mouse, the speakers are not heard and while the script does work, the monitor is not active, it is on, but inactive. I am using KDE and I do not know which screensaver is working, the screen blanks and the monitor goes to sleep. How can I wake up the screen/monitor so I can hear the alarm playing. I remember trying
$ xset dpms off
Or similar and turn off screen blankinh, but that does not work anymore. How do I figure out a way to get it working?
Thanks in Advance,

Has anyone got this to work in Fedora? To be clear, split tunnelling is
when network traffic to some destinations (or for some apps) is
tunnelled over a VPN, while the rest of the traffic goes through normal
channels. I've tried messing with network namespaces, which would seem
to be the way to go, but not managed to get everything lined up so far.
All the howto's I've seen are for various flavours of Ubuntu.
I guess I'm asking if anyone has already done the work and feels like
It seems too often I struggle with the problem of dealing with a device
that, when "reset" or new, is on a different subnet and my computer
address needs to change temporarily for the device to be accessedwith
the Firefox browser long enough to change the device address too
something in my 192.168.1.xxx range.
What is the simplest way to do that with Fedora 27 or 28,NetworkManager?
My immediate problem is that I have an Buffalo router /have been using
as an ethernet bridge for a long time and I forgot the address I
assigned to it and I can't access it. It came with dd-wrt. I t looks
to me like I need to reset it to gain access with the browser.

I'm trying to install the KDE spin on a Dell XPS 15 and I can't seem to get
the nVidia drivers to install.
I installed via a USB stick, and I had to add the dis_ucode_ldr switch to
the boot options to get it to load and change to ACIP rather than RAID for
the drive, but it installed without issue after that and seems to be
working fine with the Noveau drivers, however I cannot seem to get nVidia
drivers to install correctly.
I'm trying to use the workstation RPMFusion repo, and they seem to install
OK, but after trying the guides here:
(I don't have the install drivers option for this one, I think that's Gnome
specific isn't it?)
I get similar results, namely a blank screen at login, which persists for
more than 10 minutes, so I don't think it's still building the drivers.
If I switch to another tty I can startx and it will load KDE. It's like
it's not loading the login screen.
I'm still searching through the logs but I've not found a smoking gun yet,
but just in case, has anyone got this to work, and if so how did you do it?
