With the SystemRescueCd I backed up the /dev/sda6 partition in /mnt/backup/ naming "diskimage"
After backing up operation the file has the automatic extension like "diskimage.000".
Is this file ok to restore?
If I name it "diskimage.gz" then it is automatically renamed with this extension "diskimage.gz.000"
But here below
the file is name like this:
Do I have to name with the .pimg extension during backup to restore correctly?
And how can I restore it?
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 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?

I have a Fedora 30 flash drive set up for dual booting
from Legacy or UEFI. It boots beautifully from UEFI.
(It also have a bios_grub partition).
It booted perfectly from both under Fedora 29.
Now when booting from legacy, it go into "System Setup".
If you press system Setup, I get a "/grub/core-system"
Remaking grub.cfg, I get
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Generating grub configuration file ...
Adding boot menu entry for EFI firmware configuration
Uhhhhh.. I wanted legacy, not EFI.
What am I missing?
References that stink:
Before installing, gparted:
Wipe the target disk
create a partition table as GPT
create a first partition as
set the partition flag to "bios_grub"
Install Fedora 29 from a UEFI machine:
"/home" was removed at installation and moved into "/"
--->>> PRESUMED !!! <<<---
The machine was install and booted from UEFI
The machine is mounted as /dev/sda
Install the legacy BIOS boot loader:
Boot into fedora on UEFI
only installs 3 files
# dnf reinstall grub2-pc
create the BIOS .cfg file
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Note: if this complains, you forgot to create the partition above
# grub2-install --removable --recheck --target=i386-pc
while using "Files", the explorer application (version 3.28.1-stable) in my
Fedora 28 system, I have sometimes this kind of problem:
- I normally use what should be "list view" with list of file names
- if I have to paste a file/dir or group of copied files/dirs into a
location where the page listed is full (no blank space inside it), it seems
that I cannot paste: the right mouse click doesn't offer the paste option.
In these cases I temporarily switch to what should be "icon view" and in
this case I always have some blank space because of how items are displayed.
I select a blank space and then right-mouse --> paste
Then I come back to list view...
Is this a sort of bug or what?
Based on this link
I should have "paste" option in menu, but it doesn't happen, see screenshot:
NOTE: keyboard shortcut ctrl+c and ctrl+v works, though
Thanks in advance.
On most occasions I have to clean files before I am allowed to update

Does anyone know what is special about this system that it requires
clean all before it will update? I have two other systems that never
experience the same problem.
on a pc where I had both Windows 7 and Fedora 29, with boot loader
configured in linux and grub2, I have run the update to Fedora 30 using the
usual procedure described here, and already completed on another pc (but
without the dual boot...):
after the commad
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
I saw the laptop rebooting, installing all the about 9k packages, than
verifying them and as soon as it had verified the last one, I saw again
reboot (is it expected?), but then in grub options I only see
windows 7 recovery environment
So I think something went bad in updating grub2 config...
Any hint on how to recover grub, eventually booting from a usb stick in any
Already happened to anyone else with f29 to f30?
I followed on the same laptop the same procedure without problems from f26
(or f27) to f29 until this problem.
