Display resolution -

I need to swap monitors as the backlight in my old Dell monitor grows 
dim. I have a Viewsonic vx2035WM that Fedora can never get the 
resolution right for. I've gone through the following process using 
information I found on Google.

[root <at> box7 bobg]# cvt 1680 1050
# 1680x1050 59.95 Hz (CVT 1.76MA) hsync: 65.29 kHz; pclk: 146.25 MHz
Modeline "1680x1050_60.00"  146.25  1680 1784 1960 2240  1050 1053 1059 
1089 -hsync +vsync

[root <at> box7 bobg]# xrandr --newmode "1680x1050_60.00"  146.25  1680 1784 
1960 2240  1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync
[root <at> box7 bobg]# xrandr --addmode VGA1 1680x1050_60.00
[root <at> box7 bobg]# xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1680x1050_60.00

Which produces a working Modeline and display. Now it appears I need a 
working xorg.conf display section so it will survive rebooting.

When I do, again from Google:

Xorg :1 -configure

The display crashes and says "Starting Terminate Plymouth Boot Screen"

Does anyone have an example of a working config file that I can use?

Bob

Two disk kickstart

I'm having a little trouble with kickstart when the target box has more 
than one disk. In the %pre section of the kickstart file, I create a 
temporary file based on the number of disks present, then %include that 
file in the normal part of the kickstart file. The logic is this.

> d=
> declare -i i=0
> while read maj min blk nam; do
>   if [[ $nam =~ ^sd.$ ]]; then
>     d="$d,$nam"
>     i+=1
>   fi
> done </proc/partitions
> if [[ $i -eq 0 ]]; then
>   shutdown -H now
> fi
> d=${d#,}
> (
> echo bootloader --driveorder=$d --location=mbr --boot-drive=${d%%,*}
> echo clearpart --all --initlabel --drives=$d
> echo part /boot --fstype=ext4 --size=500 --ondisk=${d%%,*}
> echo part pv.01 --grow --size=500 --ondisk=${d%%,*}
> if [[ $i -eq 1 ]]; then
>   echo volgroup vg_me pv.01 --pesize=32768
> else

tracking down crash/error in app running on fed/centos

Hi guys.

running an app in both fed/centos test machines and getting a seg fault.

I know this is a bit off topic, but it does related to segfault
crashes, and how to get/setup the data to analyze track down the
offending code!

to begin,
the system has /var/log/messages with
Sep 30 11:40:57 dell2 kernel: courseSectionDa[3270]: segfault at 868
ip 00007f80e8e1e410 sp 00007fffe404d0c8 error 4 in
libgearman.so.8.0.0[7f80e8e18000+26000]

isn't this saying the crash is coming from the libgearman.so.8.0.0 as
opposed to the parent php app which uses the gearman lib??

and assuming that this is the case, and i installed the gearman so
with yum (without source) is there a way I can setup the system to
capture the crash data to do an analysis of the crash??

the parent app runs multiple (1000s) of times, and somewhere the crash occurs..

thanks guys..

Please keep F20 up-to-date (if you can't hold release dates)

Hello,

A few days ago, Mesa-10.3 has been released, while Mesa 10.2 now marks the "stable" version.
The version which currently ships as part of Fedora-20 is 10.1, which receuived its last update in June.

Guys, if you can't hold release dates, please keep at least the current distribution up-to-date.
It is done with the kernel, so why aren't other critical parts of the system handled in a rolling-release like way?

Greetings, Gerhard

Fedora 20 x64 on Fujitsu Siemens Q5020 ( GM965/GM960 ) video problem

Hi all,

I installed F20 x64 on Fujitsu Siemens Q5020 and I only can set 1024x768
or 800x600 video. How can I set it to 1366x768 or 1280x720 ?
I tried i915.modeset=1 to kernel options with no luck.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
C. Sava

Wrong Screen Resolution after uninstalling nvidia packages from rpmfusion

My physical screenis 1280x800. It is the screen of a Dell Latitude E6500 
laptop.

Now, all gui app windows are being displayed as if my physical screen is 
1280x760,
and the app's window is 1280x800, thus  I can pan the window up and down by
moving the mouse to top of screen or bottom of screen.

This resizing happened AFTER I uninstalled the rpmfusion nvidia packages:

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-304xx.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-304xx-devel.x86_64

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64

Is there a way to restore it back to physical resolution of 1280x800?

Problem with duplicate packages on system


# yum check
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
cogl-1.16.0-3.fc20.x86_64    is a duplicate with cogl-1.16.0-2.fc20.x86_64
flickcurl-1.26-1.fc20.x86_64 is a duplicate with 
flickcurl-1.25-1.fc20.x86_64
gvfs-1.18.3-3.fc20.x86_64    is a duplicate with gvfs-1.18.3-2.fc20.x86_64
libplist-1.11-2.fc20.x86_64  is a duplicate with libplist-1.10-2.fc20.x86_64
libspnav-0.2.3-1.fc20.x86_64 is a duplicate with 
libspnav-0.2.2-6.fc20.x86_64
openvpn-2.3.2-6.fc20.x86_64  is a duplicate with openvpn-2.3.2-4.fc20.x86_64

How can this be?
I thought yum update takes care not to allow duplicates?

fed/centos question

Hi.

Really a reinstall question.

You can have an install server for http/ftp/etc install
You can also have pxe startup, as well as the base install from the dvd/network.

However, I'm trying to figure out how to go about (if it's possible)
to do a reinstall of a system remotely.

I'd like to be able to ssh into a box, and then do a reinstall of a
given system  based on the different kickstarter file that I created.
I'd like to ssh into the box, run a given cmd, use a given kickstart
process and have the entire process just work!

But I've been looking all over to try to figure out exactly how this
would work or what all the issues are.

Any thoughts/pointers would be helpful

The target boxes would be centos6.5 (and above) as well as fed 18 and above..

Thanks guys..

UCB keybord curiosity

I have a system that functions as a PVR, and is re-booted daily. There have been no recent updates. On
yesterday's reboot (and subsequently) the kernel does not recognize A/N keystrokes from the KBD.
Mousepad motions and clicks work fine. Looking at the dmesg output, there appears to be nothing amiss.
When I move the USB transceiver to another system, everything works as it should.

Suggestions?  Thanks.
