It has been a couple of years (which means 4 or 5 Fedora releases ago)
since I did this, but I used to be able to play Xonotic using my Xbox 360
Wireless controller. Now I cannot get the controller to work properly in
F32 (it works in Windows 10 so I know the hardware is OK).
This most likely has something to do with the move from xboxdrv (which is
no longer available in Fedora) to xpad kernel driver, and/or the move from
the old js driver to evdev. The xpad driver comes with the current kernel,
but what I cannot figure out is how to calibrate the controller. If I run
Xontic with the controller connected, the game world just spins
counterclockwise. This is a symptom of the controller needing to be
calibrated, but I don't know how to do it. I tried using "jscal", but if I
run "jscal -c" to calibrate it, it appears to work but doesn't. I can
immediately run "jscal -t" and it will say it is not calibrated, and
running "jstest" also shows it is not calibrated (several of the axes are
not centered, i.e. show nonzero values in jstest).
I attempted to download and compile xboxdrv, but it does not work due to
Python 2 vs. 3 incompatibilities, and it doesn't look like any work has
been done on xboxdrv in quite some time. If I try to make it, I get this:
root@snowcrash xboxdrv-linux-0.8.8]# make
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
File "/local/src/xboxdrv-linux-0.8.8/SConstruct", line 34
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean
make: *** [Makefile:24: xboxdrv] Error 2
Certainly looks like Python version incompatibility.
Can anybody point me to information on how to use an Xbox 360 controller on
F32, or how to calibrate it when using the xpad driver? I have done a lot
of Googling, but most of the articles I found mention things like "apt-get
install xboxdrv", showing they were written for Ubuntu rather than Fedora
and are wanting to use the xboxdrv driver.
cisco ise helps safeguard your business. It lets you control access throughout your network, see the user and device details, and stop/contain any threats. You can also use it to enforce security policies throughout your network. As a result, it helps prevent any technical issues and strengthens your cybersecurity measures. In short, you can manage your network security with more ease. Everything can be handled in one place, as opposed to needing multiple different applications open at once.

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?
I upgraded to F31 late last week and I am missing the MiscFixed 16 font that I prefer using. Where would I find it?

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 running F33 Mate, but I think I was also seeing the problem I'm
asking about under at least F32, and maybe also earlier.
Dragora has two icons that I can put on a panel. One of them is
supposed to be an updater. It works, afaict.
The other seems intended to do what it used to: permit me to
slice and dice lists of apps, and to install or remove them. On any new
install I used to use it heavily, eliminating apps I knew I'd never use,
and adding ones not present by default that I do use.
Both icons do only the check for updates. Have I damaged
something? Or is the exhaustive form deprecated?? If so, is there a

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I have a Lenovo Yoga X1 (2nd gen) with Intel graphics, running GNOME
(fully up to date). Recently, the screen rotation lock control in the
system menu (drop-down in the upper right corner) disappeared and the
screen stopped auto-rotating. I had been running in Xorg mode because
certain Zoom features don't work under Wayland. At some point, I
switched to Wayland mode and the control reappeared and auto-rotation
started working. That worked for a while, but then the control
disappeared again. I switched back to Xorg mode and the control is
Anyone have any idea what's going on and/or how I can get consistent

Fedora-32 home workstation; gnome.
In ksysguard, I've been noticing internet activity that I can't explain. This has been going on for weeks, and it's making me uncomfortable.
What I do:
1. After the system has been powered down overnight, I boot it up.
2. I sign in to a user account.
3. My .bash_profile sources my .bashrc, sets PATH, and launches xeyes. My .bashrc sources /etc/bashrc, sets PS1 and PATH, and defines aliases.
4. I launch ksysguard, then Spectacle.
5. I wait several seconds, then take a screen-capture of ksysguard's display.
To get a good sample, I did five screen-captures. Here are the google drive links to them:
* neither Thunderbird nor any other e-mail client nor Firefox nor any other browser had been launched since powering up.
* as far as I know, nothing else that uses the internet had been launched since powering up. actually, the only things I had running were xeyes, ksysguard, Spectacle, and (in the last screen-shot only) gnome terminal (which was idle).
* as far as I know, nothing is set to auto-update.
* as far as I know, nothing has telemetry permission enabled.
Yet there is persistent, continual (not continuous) internet activity in both directions. What is it? What on my system is communicating with what externally, and what is being communicated? Unauthorized updating? Unauthorized telemetry? Unauthorized distributed computing? Spyware? Crypto-currency mining?
This is way outside my knowledge and experience. I need good step-by-step instructions on this.
Thank-you in advance.

I don't even know how to reproduce this error.
It happens at spurious times, mostly when my system is shut down for a long
period of time, like two hours.
Should I file a bug? Or is this a problem with my system ?
