Would you have a suggestion for a software capable of adding comments

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?

The Citi.com credit card website allows generating virtual card numbers, but unfortunately they're using flash in that part of the site. When I try to use it in F30, on one particular machine (it's hardware-specific), in GNOME (it doesn't happen in MATE), the Firefox tab crashes and I get a general protection fault, for example
[88812.835817] traps: Web Content general protection fault ip:7f94ee0d0adb sp:7ffedd6a3140 error:0 in libX11.so.6.3.0[7f94ee0aa000+8e000]
Since flash is involved, it's not clear whether this is the fault of Fedora or flash. This has been happening for around half a year, so flash has been updated several times. It also happened with F29. Anyone know how to narrow down where the issue is?
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.
Dunno when and why this started recently, but I'm hit hard by segfaults
taking down GNOME Shell.
Bugzilla knows tons of duplicate bug reports about it, dating back to
OsLookupColor(): Segmentation fault at address 0x...
Has anyone seen this earlier and knows a workaround perhaps?
F30 isn't usable anymore due to those crashes.
After I connected the new scanner to the USB port and ran 'xsane', it
showed 'no devices available'. But if I run 'lsusb' it is getting this
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04a9:12fe Canon, Inc
I downloaded the driver from this link:
And the driver scangearmp2-3.70-1.x86_64.rpm was installed.
But still 'xsane' is not finding it but 'lsusb' is showing it.
Can I do anything here? Thanks in advance.
I was trying to install the InventorLoader addon for FreeCAD and it
requires three python modules to install.
xlrd, xlwt and xlutils
xlrd and xlwt are available through DNF, xlutils isn't.
I saw it mentioned in an old bug report but nothing more.
I would like to request that this package be added.
I installed the ccache package on F30. Doing a rpm -ql on the
package show a long list of files that are part of the package, but if I do
ls -l /usr/lib64/ccache/
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 193392 Jan 31 07:23 cc
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 193392 Jan 31 07:23 gcc
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 193392 Jan 31 07:23 x86_64-redhat-linux-gcc
where are all the other files, e.g. /usr/lib64/ccache/c++?
