Have two machines running Fedora 32, and just noticed with the latest
update of tigervnc-server the vncserver is GONE?
Did a downgrade on both machines, and it is back and running just fine.
The one machine had rebooted, and therefor wasn't able to load the
server. The other machine still had the server running from before the
upgrade, so was able to vnc into it.
The file from the /usr/bin director was just no longer there. Tried a
reinstall, and still no file. Only the downgrade option restored it??
Not sure on how to report this. Didn't notice it until trying to vnc into
machine that had rebooted? The dnf whatprovides shows that the
program is included, so not sure what kind of error is in the latest
Thanks and be Safe...

I'm packaging Open Policy Agent  (OPA) for Fedora. However, with version 0.20.0, OPA added a telemetry service, enabled by default, reporting to a OPA-managed service the OPA version, a UUID and the build architecture (cf changelog  and privacy information )
I didn't find any Fedora policy regarding this kind of opt-out telemetry, so I asked the Fedora Packaging Commitee for advice . I got advised to ask Fedora community on this mailing list.
So do you think it is ok to package OPA as is, or should I patch it to make telemetry opt-in by disabling it by default in the Fedora package?
More globally, what do you think should be done in Fedora packages when an upstream project includes a telemetry service?
Thank you & regards,

I have been using gnome-system-monitor, but it does
not show CPU usages when CPU's are tied up with
system interrupts. htop does, but it is not GUI based.
Anyone have a favorite GUI that will give me
accurate CPU usage?
I am developing a Qt app in Fedora 31 using the default GNOME wayland session and I am very sorry to see the state of Qt in this configuration.
1) qt creator crashes often (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1773356) the crash report tool does not seem to help
2) drag & drop does not work in Qt creator (and in no other Qt app) (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1774762 and https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80303)
3) main window geometry cannot be restored when the application restarts (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80612)
I think GNOME / Wayland / Qt it is just not ready and should not be offered as the default desktop session for Fedora.
If I force Qt to use X11 emulations, things are much better.
Probably Qt is responsible (but in the bug reports someone says that KDE / Wayland works well), and GNOME is not Qt, but there are so many Qt apps, that sending new users to a non working environment re-enforces the fact that "just works" is not true in Linux.
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")?
There must be some other way to install fedora than using "mediawriter?"
I want to install a copy of fedora-33 on another drive and I would like
to try a different method if someone can suggest one. Google has not

immediately back into FC32.
