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.
Whenever I mistype a URL,
it gets turned into food for Midcontinent's search engine.
What is really annoying is that the back
button does not take me back to what I typed.
Also, the search results rarely includes the site I wanted.
My suspicion is that this is done at least partly through DNS corruption.
Anyone know for sure?
I'm running F33 connected directly to Midco's modem/router.
Assuming DNS corruption is at least part of the issue,
how, if at all, do I bypass Midco's DNS?
The problem seems not unique to Midco or F33:
My girlfriend has the same problem with CenturyLink and Ubuntu.

I've been seeing strange things on my panel for about a week or two.
They are triangles or lines extending horizontally from a region of
some color, narrowing to a point. They last generally for up to about
30 seconds. Attached is a picture of such an artifact
(PanelArtifact.jpg), taken with my cell phone. Note the black stripe
just above "System Information". Has anyone seen anything like this

Three days ago I did a dnf system upgrade to apply all available
Fedora updates. I have now tried to start Plasma under Xorg, but it now
refuses to start with a crash in ksplashqml, and if I press
ctrl-alt-delete to try to logout the ksmserver-greeter also crashes.
Plasma under Wayland runs quite happily albeit without resolution
scaling. Gnome under Wayland runs fine without scaling and Gnome under
Xorg also runs fine. How do I determine why the apps are failing with
Plasma under Xorg now?
Anyone know what this is `dnf upgrade` error is

Any idea what is wrong ?
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.

I have a new dell laptop. I tried to install Fedora 33 on it, but it
failed to find any disks. I searched the internet and discovered that
if my BIOS has RAID enabled F33 is unable to find any drives. I
disabled RAID and enable AHCI and was then able to install and boot
F33. I then tried to boot Windows 10. This failed until I entered the
bitlock key. I then went back into the BIOS and re-enabled RAID and
verified Windows 10 boots without error, but Fedora 33 no longer does
since it can't find any drives. What if I want RAID enabled? Is there
a solution to this problem?
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?
