F21: How do you turn on syntax highlighting in vim?


Greetings,

After installing F21, I no longer seem to be able to control 
syntax-highlighting.

I have the same 4 packages installed that I had on F18:
vim-common-7.4.475-2.fc21.x86_64
vim-enhanced-7.4.475-2.fc21.x86_64
vim-filesystem-7.4.475-2.fc21.x86_64
vim-minimal-7.4.475-2.fc21.x86_64

...

I also use the command:
:set syntax=on

and

:syntax on

with no results.

Thanks.

yum broken


Trying to run yum I get the following error message:

yum update
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

   libcrypto.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.7.8 (default, Nov 10 2014, 08:19:18)
[GCC 4.9.2 20141101 (Red Hat 4.9.2-1)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:

I tried this:

# rpmbuild --rebuild yum-3.4.3-153.fc21.src.rpm

log message when starting firefox

Hi,

Every time I start firefox I'm getting the following message in the log

  2015-03-26T08:43:05.397185+01:00 machine-name dbus[742]: [system] Rejected send message, 1 matched
rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.5658" (uid=1234 pid=27250
comm="/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox ") interface="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"
member="state" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0"
destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" (uid=0 pid=782 comm="/usr/sbin/NetworkManager
--no-daemon ")

Does firefox really depend on NetworkManager?  I don't have NetworkManager
installed, my network is started statically via /etc/rc.d/init.d/network,
so the message makes kind of sense.  But really, firefox depending on
NetworkManager?  That can't be right, can it?

Either way, is there a way to get rid of this log message other than
installing NetworkManager?

Thanks,
Corinna

5tFTW: Fedora conferences this summer, writing release notes, brainstorming a better onramp, and a GSOC reminder (2015-03-25)

Fedora is a big project, and it’s hard to keep up with everything. This
series highlights interesting happenings in five different areas every
week. It isn’t comprehensive news coverage — just quick summaries with
links to each. Here are the five things for March 25th, 2015:

Join us at Flock (and book your hotel now)
------------------------------------------

Every year, we have a big planning and developers’ conference, Flock.
It alternates between Europe and North America, and this time around

Managing Menu choices on the desktop in F21


Greetings,

After installing F21 on a x64 desktop, I proceeded to also install non-RPM 
software.

For these types of software to appear in the menus, there are *.desktop 
files in the directory:
/usr/share/applications

The software that I installed is OpenJUMP, a java-based GIS package 
somewhat like Quantum-GIS (QGIS Desktop).

In the *.desktop file, there is a line that controls the submenu 
placement; it looks like this:
Categories=Education;Geography;Science;

Howver, in this case OpenJUMP has also become it's own Category.

I would like to eliminate this, but the places that I've looked so far 
(Settings -> Desktop) don't offer control of this.

I'm using Xfce as a desktop; but this phenomenon also appears in MATE, 
Gnome, and Gnome Classic.

Where would I look or what file should I edit?

Much thanks,

Max Pyziur

Can audio driver configure audio jacks

Can the linux audio driver configure the audio jacks on an ASUS H971
Plus motherboard? There are three jacks on the bord that are either line
out, line in, mic or front, center, back speakers. I need the latter
configuration and understand that this is driver configured on Windows
platforms. I'm running Fedora 21.

Only a reader of the fedora list so far, but just sub'ed, so hope this
post works...

I had that issue and was able to trace it down to the google-chrome
repo.

The time stamp given does not exactly match the file itself but it does
match the time stamp given inside the file.

Should disks in a raid really prevent booting?

I was apparently missing something like the raid1 kernel
module in the initramfs in my fedora 21 partition, but
I disabled the mdmonitor service and removed the raid
filesystem from the /etc/fstab, yet the system still
could not boot. It spent several minutes trying to recognize
the raided disks then went into the dracut shell.

Should it really be utterly impossible to boot a system
that merely has raided disks connected to it which no
one is trying to reference? Should I make a kernel bug
for this?

mdadm raid1 confuses fedora 21?

I enabled mdmonitor, and created a raid1 while booted
into fedora 20 and everything is wonderful. It recognizes
the entry in fstab and boots no problem. (I'm not
using the raid1 to boot from, BTY, just as a data disk).

I then tried to boot the fedora 21 partition on the
same machine (being sure to enable mdmonitor in it
as well), and it never finishes booting. (Though
a fedora 21 live USB stick boots fine).

Has something changed in the vicinity of mdadm
in f21? Do I need the initramfs rebuilt or
something?

Right now it stops booting with messages on the
screen something like "/dev/sde is a large
disk, trying to use READCAPACITY" and just
sits there. (Where /dev/sde is one of the two
disks I have in the array).

hourly yum cron

Every hour I get the same notice from a default yum cron job.

/etc/cron.hourly/0yum-hourly.cron:

Not using downloaded repomd.xml because it is older than what we have:
  Current   : Thu Mar 19 23:01:22 2015
  Downloaded: Thu Mar 19 17:54:56 2015


If I run any of the following commands the next hourly yum cron will go by without the notice but following that this same notice returns. Including having the same time date stamp on the downloaded repomd.xml file


yum clean expire-cache
yum clean metadata
yum clean all

Any help in getting this fixed? 


Thanks

calendar servers?

I've got a project I'm developing for the raspberry pi which requires
a calendar server. While it will probably run on raspbian it would be
handy if I could do some of the work on Fedora. Is radicale the only
calendar server? It's the only one that shows up in a DNF search. They
have a pretty webpage, but I'm a little put off by their "Development
choices: lazy" thing, such as, "The Radicale Server assumes that the
clients are perfect and that protocol violations do not exist."
Under raspbian there's the Darwin Calendar server (calendarserver)
though that has it's own problems in lacking TLS support.
