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?

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")?
Lately, I've noticed that different tabs that I have open in Firefox are
crashing. This seems to have started recently. They can be restored
easily, but there's a nuisance factor here.
Hardware/Software basic deets:
Dell XPS 13 L322X laptop, vintage circa 2013.
1TB Samsung Solid state drive
F32 - everything has been updated
The reform of dnfdragora to put all available updates into groups is not
updating everything, and not updating many things it used to update
The only reliable thing my system will update, are applications and
various desktop relevant things. And not all applications, either.
Basically, if it is not in a group, dnfdragora will not update it and I
have to fall back on the traditional Software Management application to
do these updates.
The following packages typically fail of update and even of selection on
* The kernel and related packages.
* Browsers other than Firefox.
* Application packages from repositories foreign to the Fedora
community, such as "bunkus.org" (mkvtoolsnix), google (for chrome), and
Adobe Systems Incorporated.
* System packages that run background processes that normally load
themselves at startup and stay resident.
I've checked for all possible settings I can make to solve this problem.
I've tried refreshing metadata (which, by the way, takes fifteen minutes
every time). No joy.
I tried selecting "not showing the groups." No joy.
Have any of you noticed the same issue?
My desktop is KDE.
"Check for updates" counts all packages that need an update. But again:
if they're not in a group, they're not available for a selection.
(Note: if you're going to tell me to report this as a bug, I need to
know exactly where and how. I've filed bugs in the wrong place and they
get no action.)
On Fedora 32 Workstation.
My VTs are functional but there is not visible indication
of I/O. By that I mean, I get no login or password prompt.
But I can blindly login. I get no shell prompt. But I
can blindly enter commands that run but they show no output
in the VT.
The VT system is controlled by systemD. After a boot and upon
graphical login this is the status:
$ systemctl | grep getty
system-getty.slice loaded active active system-getty.slice
getty.target loaded active active Login Prompts
A "ps -ef | grep getty" gives no output
After I try to access VT #3 (<Ctl><Alt><Fn3>) without logging in,
I get an additional line from the above command:
getty(a)tty3.service loaded active running Getty on tty3
And the ps pipe gives this:
root 4237 1 0 13:23 tty4 00:00:00 /sbin/agetty -o -p -- \u --noclear tty3 linux
I didn't think the display manager would affect the VT system, but
just in case I tried gdm, sddm, lightdm. No differences.
Any clue as to why there seems to be no video connection to the VTs?
