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.
For several years I've been using a Windows VM with passthrough
graphics as a gaming platform. It works pretty well, but ties up
machine resources even when idle, so I'm now experimenting with Valve's
Linux version of Steam with the Proton additions to the Wine libraries.
I've disabled the VM, installed the latest proprietary Nvidia drivers,
modified grub appropriately and rebooted. The Nvidia modules are
loaded. The nvidia-settings command shows the GPU.
However when I run games under Steam, they are using the internal Intel
GPU, making this configuration essentially unusable for AAA gaming
(i.e. games will start but are unplayably slow). I can find no
documentation on how to change this (whether via a global Steam option
or even individually for each game).
For the record, Linux Steam is a 32-bit executable, but I don't think
this should affect anything (my machine is 64-bit).
Has anyone done this successfully on Fedora? There are any number of
Google hits on similar themes, but mainly focussed on Ubuntu, which is
what Valve are mostly aiming at.
The problem is seen in the Gnome terminal editor, but not in gvim,
Firefox, or Thunderbird.
The terminal's font is set to the system font (vs. custom font).
The system font is set to "AR PL UKai CN Book 16". This is set via the
"Tweaks" tool. I really do need to use the UKai font.
(what I do)
When I view a Chinese music video in youtube, I also make notes about it
in a text file. I use vi(m) to edit that file.
1. In Firefox, I load a youtube video whose title and/or description
(poster's comments) contains Chinese text. This text is found below the
video itself, and above the section for comments by viewers.
2. Using the trackball (cursor), I select the text containing Chinese
3. I paste the selected text into the left part of google translate.
- Below the Chinese text that I pasted in, google translate displays
"pinyin" (the "romanization" of the Chinese text). This is useful for
- In the right part of google translate, google translate shows its
English translate guess.
4. Using the trackball (cursor), I select the pinyin, and paste it into
my text file of notes about the video.
5. Using the trackball (cursor), I select the English translation guess,
and paste it into my text file of notes about the video.
(what I see)
When the Chinese text contains the Chinese equivalent of the open double
quote (it looks like a double version of the less-than character '<'),
then in my notes file, in the pinyin and English, it shows as an open
double quote with the next English character in the same position (that
is, on top of each other). There is no problem with close double
quotes. I have not seen this problem with any other character. I've
attached an example text file, and a screen capture of that text file in
vi(m). Notice in the screen capture:
- in the second non-blank line, after "13", an open double quote and the
letter 'Y' appear to be in the same position.
- in the third non-blank line, after "13 ", an open double quote and the
letter 'I' appear to be in the same position.
This problem occurs a lot, and it does make editing difficult.
My sense is that this is not something that I can fix on my
workstation. So I should submit a bug. Where should I submit the bug,
and against what (the font or the terminal or something else (what?))?
Fedora 30 had several dnf-related updates today. Since then, mock fails
with KeyError: 'yum.conf'
In the mockbuild directory, /var/lib/mock/Fedora.../root/etc/yum.conf is
a link to yum/yum.conf, which is a 0 byte file.
In the corresponding file for epel-7 builds, last used before the
updates, yum/yum.conf is 3.2 kB
In the F30 host /etc/yum.conf is now 816 bytes
Perhaps I should try to revert.

Same problem here on a similar laptop model with Intel Wireless-AC 3168NGW
Updated today to 5.5.6-201 (from stable updates repository) and the problem has gone away.
A customer with one of those $$$$ custom programs is getting
a pop up
telling him he is going to have to start paying for Java.
The software vendor have an update to switch from Java
to Open Java, but the vendor's QC is horrendous and
the customer does not want to spend the money, which
is considerable, and have things come out worse. He
has been down that path before.
Is there a way to just freeze the Java version at
what he has?
And will it affect updating to Fedora 31 or future
Fedora updates after that?
I'm trying to help shoot a possible kernel bug which may create a dump. I'm trying to find doc on how to enable the crashdump "features" of my FC33 (Rawhide) system.
tldp.org seems to be out of date
docs.fedoraproject.org doesn't seem to have a search facility...
Can anyone give me a hint please?
