Last week, I was to participate in a "Zoom" meeting for a charity that
I'm involved in. I have the needed software on my rarely-used windows-7
box. But I could not complete the windows-7 login (some problem with a
windows-7 service). I've since found there is a "Zoom" client for
Fedora. "dnfdragora" does not find anything for it. But I found a web
page that I hope has what I need. I've downloaded the package
("zoom_x86_64.rpm"), and I've downloaded a "Public Key"
("package-signing-key.pub"). The web site from which I've downloaded
these also has a line:
Key fingerprint: [some 40 hex digit number]
1. Do the 2 files need to be in a specific place to do the install? If
2. Do I need to be "root" to do the install?
3. What do I do with the "Key fingerprint"?
4. How do I do the install (preferably using "dnf")?
Something on sourceforge has been recommended to me, but I try to
stick to things that dnf can install. Surely there must be some Fedora-
native ebook reader!

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I have been using ethernet up to now. I went to enable the wifi, to see
no wifi listed.
It has been too long since I have had to do this troubleshooting. Can
some point me to what I need to look at to find what the Fedora thinks
is the wifi?
I have recently begun to use again gnome session and I have reinstalled
I see that nautilus depends on tracker and so the reinstall put in tracker
and its things
And this morning in my F28 system with SSD disk (I don't imagine on a
normal sata based environment) I had to kill tracker-extract and
tacker-miner processes because they hogged my cpu for several minutes..
Searching with google I found different info about disabling (or at least
calm down) tracker, but they all seem not updated, in the sense that
several commands/services are not present in my f28 environment.
Any pointer about configuring and/or disabling it?
Thanks in advance,
Would you have a suggestion for a software capable of adding comments
in a pdf file?

I am planning on running a Virtual Private Network from my Fedora
firewall out to a UML virtual colo (running RH9) at another site.
That site will be the place I present services to the world;
httpd, ssh, sftp, smtp. This is to comply with the "no servers"
and dynamic ip restrictions on my Comcast connection to the net;
if my firewall always drives an outbound connection to the
colocation site, I am not worried about changes of ip address,
and I am not opening any inbound ports.
There are a number of options for the VPN - the most attractive
are cipe ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
and FreeSwan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ ), though I am told that
one can do all this through an ssh tunnel. I would rather have
simple and secure than super-duper; I have plenty of bandwidth,
and will send outbound http and smtp from the firewall, so the
main bandwidth user will be incoming spam/b/b/b/b mail.
Anyone have some experiences to share about setting up VPN? Is
there anything about either cipe or FreeSwan that is likely to
break with FC1 or FC2?

Just got ~20 times larger. Can I delete it and start over?
I bought a used notebook which came with an Nvidia GPU and I haven't
managed to get it to work with Fedora.
Computer: Dell XPS 15 9580. UltraHD screen. Nvidia GFX 1050 mobile GPU.
1) Fedora 30 installation medium hung.
2) tried Fedora 31 beta. Hung the same way.
3) it seems that nouveau is to blame. Solution: add kernel parameter
4) installed Fedora 31 beta. (I've kept it updated, so it is now Fedora 31
a) I don't get the advantage of the fast GPU (and the chance of using it
for GPU computing). This isn't an urgent concern.
b) the GPU is apparently powered up and generating heat. This runs down
my battery and causes the fan to run.
i) Install proprietary nvidia driver. I used the negativo17
ii) Install BumbleBee to allow switching between the Intel IGPU and the
Nvidia GPU. (I don't think that I've actually used BumbleBee yet.)
System hangs on boot when the kernel has nvidia modules (which I've
only done for some kernels, thank goodness).
If I disable Wayland (in /etc/gdm/custom.conf set WaylandEnable to
false), I can boot a kernel with nvidia modules. GDM (the loging
screen) works. It is known that the Nvidia proprietary drives don't
work with Wayland.
If the kernel has nvidia modules, once I log in through GDM, the
machine locks up hard. In particular, I've done this while an SSH
session is also logged in from another machine. That session is
I *think* that the /etc/gdm/custom.conf setting should also prevent
Wayland from being used during the session post-GDM but I don't really
have a way of checking.
==> Is wayland disabled for the session or do I need other magic?
The latest system log entries are lost since the machine freezes
without flushing various filesystem caches.
