Developing for Android with Qt

is there any package that I'd need to develop for android in Qt 5? or I just use Qt Creator as it is in the repos?

I know I'll need the sdk and ndk.

How does the Host command query DNS?

Fedora 20 question.

I have noticed that the Host command is always returning first IPv4 addresses, and then IPv6 addresses.  So I asked on the BIND list can got the following:

================================================

> Does bind order address class on queries? That is does it, say, group > IPv4 addresses then IPv6? If the query is for A records the response will contain only IPv4 addresses, if the query is for AAAA records it will be IPv6. Only if the client performs an ANY query will the response contain both. ANY records are not generally used by applications, because they only return what's in the resolver's cache, which may not be all the records associated with the name; ANY queries are usually only useful when querying authoritative servers (unless what you're trying to find out is what's currently in the resolver's cache).
================================================


It seems that if I change the content of my zone file, I get the new results so it does not appear to be working from cache.  Is Host making separate A then AAAA requests?  Is there a way to put priority on IPv6 addresses for all applications?

Fedup issue with thunderbird

I upgraded to fedora 20 from fedora 19 using fedup. Everything went well 
except for some weird issues with Thunderbird. The latter is now giving 
me a pile of weird permission errors and disk space errors. There is 
215GB free space, so I know that is not the problem. Obviously this has 
somethign to do with the permissions on the .thunderbird folder, but I 
do not have the knoweldge to rectify the problem. Could somebody kindly 
nudge me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Graphical tool that sets hostname

I installed Fedora 19 and the machine gets IP address from DHCP and
comes up with a hostname of:

$ hostname
unknownF46D04B04638

I'd like to set the hostname to match the DNS name that goes with the
Address it's getting assigned.

I believe I could use:

$ hostnamectl --static myhost

will set the hostname to myhost.

However, is there a graphical admin tool that will do it ?

In older releases network manager had an option to set the hostname, but
doesn't seem to now.

Thanks

Five Things in Fedora This Week (2014-04-22)

Reposted from
http://fedoramagazine.org/five-things-in-fedora-this-week-2014-04-22/

Fedora is a big project, and it’s hard to follow it all. 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 April 22nd, 2014:

Making it easier to join Fedora
-------------------------------

The Fedora Join SIG is our special interest group dedicated to
improving the experience for new contributors. It’s been dormant for a
while, but it’s back with a bang thanks to Ankur Sinha, Amita Sharma,
Sarup Banskota, and others. A recent IRC meeting came up with a
couple of immediate ideas, including a Fedora site inspired by What can
I do for Mozilla?

If making Fedora more welcoming is interesting to you, join the mailing
list and help keep up the momentum.

Fedora Docs “Beats”
-------------------

Speaking of things you can do for Fedora… how about contributing
expertise in your area for the Fedora 21 release notes? I know F21′s
October release target seems a long way off, but there’s a lot to do
and the summer is going to fly by. Docs team leader Pete Travis
recently announced that F21 Beats are Open, noting:

> If you’re new to Docs, Beat writing is a good way to get
> started. Simply choose a package, service, or functionality
> that interests you and do a little research to see how will
> change in F21. You can check rawhide package changelogs, read
> the software changelogs in /usr/share/doc/$pkgname, scrape
> upstream mailing lists and commit logs, and /reach out to
> package maintainers or developers.

As always, Pete also provides great, non-intimidating guidance for new
docs contributors.

Fedora Workstation, and an alternate view — both part of Fedora!
----------------------------------------------------------------

Fedora Workstation developer Christian Schaller wrote a long blog post
explaining some of the mindset and background behind the upcoming
Fedora Workstation. If you care about Linux on the desktop, this is an
interesting read, whether you’re a GNOME fan or not (and whether or not
you agree). And if you *do* disagree, remember that that’s absolutely
okay too. Longtime Fedora contributor Stephen Smoogen (a self-described
“411 year old Linux administrator”) has a great blog post responding to
one particular Fedora Workstation decision and why he’s not worried.

Our “Fedora.next” efforts are additive rather than restrictive, and are
centered around our Friends Foundation; we may disagree on details, but
we can all work together to advance free software as a project.

  * https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Foundations

Fedora Atomic?
--------------

At last week’s Red Hat Summit, Red Hat announced
a new initiative called Project Atomic. This isn’t really new
software, or a new operating system or distribution — it’s best
described as a pattern for putting together some pieces we already have.
Not surprisingly, a lot of these pieces were (and are) worked on by
Fedora contributors, including rpm-ostree, Docker, systemd,
and a new orchestration building-block called GearD (you can read
more about GearD on the OpenShift blog and of course you can
`yum install geard` to check it out).

So… (you may be thinking…) how does this fit into Fedora? Well, most of
these are parts that we have already been talking about in the Fedora
Cloud Working Group, and it may be that GearD provides one of the key
missing pieces. We’ve filed a Fedora 21 change proposal for a
specially-tailored Docker Host Image, and although we haven’t made any
decisions yet, it - looks like the Atomic patterns are very well
aligned with what we want to do (and overlap with what we are already
doing anyway), so that may end up being our “Fedora Atomic” cloud spin.

One of the pieces of Project Atomic that the Cloud WG *hadn’t* looked
at is Cockpit, a web-based server management GUI. The interesting thing
is that this is one of the key features proposed for Fedora Server, and
if we decide to include that part in our Docker cloud image, that will
be a point of coherence across the products. (See the Project Atomic
docs on what that might provide.)

Automatic Weekly Data!
----------------------

If I had been paying attention and knew about
<http://thisweekinfedora.org/> before I started doing these posts, I
might have named *this* something a bit less similar. Oh well! Names
aside, though, these articles and that site are actually complementary.
I pick out things to feature as they strike my attention, while This
Week in Fedora presents automatically-collected statistics every
Monday. You won’t really learn any *news*there, but you will find data
on all sorts of contributor activities, from package builds to user
creation to meetings logged. If you’re data-oriented, it’s an
interesting way to get a feel for the technical pulse of the community.

Q about firefox version numbers

Hi all,

Does anybody know what the corelation between fedora package version 
numbers and mozilla version numbers?

e.g. While looking into CSS3 compatibility everybody refers to 
firefox-3.x; but fedora firefox->about reports firefox 26.0.

Hard to imagine fedora is 23 major versions ahead of mozilla's major 
version.

Any insight?

Thanks

Dual Boot Problems

A few months ago I installed Fedora 20 as dual boot on a new Dell
desktop - one with UEFI. But I got confused while installing it and
set the BIOS to "legacy boot mode" before the installation.

As a result, I have a PC which boots to Grub and Fedora works fine.
However I can't get to the Windows 8 installation and if I switch back
to UEFI boot mode, then the system won't boot at all. This works fine
for me most of the time, but occasionally I want to run Windows on the
system. So I'd like to fix my errors and end up with a real dual-boot
system.

As I see it, my plan should be something like this:

1/ Back up everything important from the Linux partitions.
2/ Use the Windows restore CD to repair the Windows UEFI boot.
3/ Reinstall Fedora using UEFI boot instead of legacy.

I'm hoping that if I note the partitions and directories before I
start, then I'll be able to re-use the same partitions for the same
directories as I currently have. Only my system partition will have
changed and I'll need to reinstall some RPMs.

Does this sound like a reasonable plan? Is there anything I might be
able to do which will make it easier?

Oh, and the system has an SSD which it uses for booting Windows. Is
there any chance that I install Fedora so that it uses this (but
without disturbing the Windows boot files)?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave...

reading adobe comments on pdf using OSS on F20

Hello,

I have been given a pdf file with comments written in Adobe. All I get
are tiny yellow balloons with (physical) lines indicating that there are
comments in them. The comments themselves are unreadable. Is there some
OSS that can read them? I am using an up-to-date F20 (as of last night).

Many thanks,
Ranjan

Fresh Install of F20 failed to install bootloader

I have finally found the time to upgrade my desktop machine from (ahem)
F16 to F20.

It is my habit to have 2xOS partitions, 1 partition for /home and 1 for
swap. Each time I upgrade I actually do a clean install in the
last-but-one OS partition (i.e. in this case where the F15 had
previously been) leaving the current (i.e. in this case F16) untouched.
This way I can simply mount the previous install and copy across any
configs etc.

I used a (tested) F20 64bit full install DVD (not the live disk).

I could make neither head nor tail of the new anaconda partitioning
system (and I still don't know if I will have successfully pointed the
F20 install to the existing /home partition - I know it seemed to insist
on creating it's own /swap even though there is a partition dedicated to
that and formatted as such for the existing F16 install).

Anyway the first attempt failed completely - locking at the screen where
you have to create a root password and user.

The second attempt seemed to go through OK, installing all the packages
etc. but I had to take a phone call at the point where it said it was
doing "post-installation configuration". By the time I came back, the
screen was informing me that Fedora 20 had been successfully installed -
reboot to start using it.

The reboot put me back into my old F16 install (at least I know that
hasn't been screwed up!) with the grub menu offering me only varying
kernels from F16.

It seems F20 has not installed the bootloader properly.

What are the steps for getting F20 to boot (while, if possible still
giving me the option to boot into F16)?

Thanks

Mark

Problem with sound and Firefox

When I boot my system I can play music etc. using Rhythmnbox. I also can 
use the volume control. After running Firefox, the pulse application is 
gone (pulseaudio --check returns a 1) and I am not able to restart it. 
But the audio from firefox which must not be using pulse still works 
fine. Sorry, but I am forced to run an old version of the kernel 
(version 3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64) to get video to work in my Dell 1721 
laptop with a Radeon video card.

The message in /var/log/messages is:

Apr 20 15:52:52 dfpc47 kernel: [20655807.089535] rhythmbox[28699]: 
segfault at 0 ip 00000032888c46e1 sp 00007fff5cf30a00 error 4 in

Address already in use
Apr 20 15:53:42 dfpc47 pulseaudio[28780]: module.c: Failed to load 
module "module-esound-protocol-unix" (argument: ""): initialization failed.

I find the segfault is rough to decode form the core dump. Is there 
something special I need to set up to prevent firefox from killing pulse?

Please have mercy. It has been a couple of years since I posted.
Don

Status of libsx-devel for building Android

Hello,

Fedora wiki [1] suggest libsx-devel but a package with that name doesn't exist. Is that package dropped for some reason? I searched bugzilla but couldn't find anything.
