5tFTW: Five Conferences in Fedora This Week! FUDCon Managua, LinuxCon EU, SeaGL, and upcoming FOSDEM and DevConf.cz (2014-10-24)

Reposted from <http://fedoramagazine.org/5tftw-2014-10-24/>.
Fedora is a big project, and it’s hard to keep up with everything that
goes on. 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
October 24th, 2014:

This is a week with a lot of conference activity — today we have an
all-event 5tFTW.

FUDCon LATAM in Managua, Nicaragua
----------------------------------

First up: our Latin American FUDCon is going on right now (yesterday,
today, and tomorrow). We already have some summary posts from Dennis
Gilmore (in English; and he’s planning to post more soon) and Luis
Bazan (in Spanish). More on this event next week!

Running Fedora or RHEL7 with NetworkManager

I have a complex firewall setup running on an older version of Fedora, and I'd 
like to upgrade to RHEL7 or recent Fedora. Unfortunately, I can't really do what 
I need using firewalld, so two questions:

1 - has anyone done this and were there any serious gotcha's?

2 - is it as easy as removing firewalld and installing networkmanager with yum?

This setup uses two (soon three) ISP connections, any of which can be used as 
default, two secure internal networks, and one DMZ for servers. Some connections 
must be forced out via  a defined ISP, and since Linux doesn't source route like 
BSD, I can't just set the source IP and have the packet go out the right 
interface, hoops must be jumped.

Any experience to share?

PATH

My $PATH has a trailing slash in the last directory path, is there any 
way to remove it?
AS example: echo
$PATH
/opt/OpenPrinting-Gutenprint/sbin:/opt/OpenPrinting-Gutenprint/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/I've 
been googling with no luck.
thanks in advance
Roger

Where is a Camera Mount Point?

I have plugged a digital camera into my usb port and mounted it using 
the popup displayed from the auto detect via konqueror (this annoys me 
as well). When konqueror is launched it displays the contents via 
Camera:/ which is okay, but subsequently I can't find any entries under 
/run that represent the camera. I assumed there would be a mount point 
under /run like there is for a usb flash disk. Given that there appears 
to not be a mount point under /run, where is it mounted in Fedora 20, so 
that I can point dolphin (which is what should be launched from the 
'Open with File Manager' prompt, not Konqueror) at the mount point 
rather than having to manually type Camera:/ into the address bar.

regards,
Steve

RE: A Linux for the totally maintenance free

Instead of replying with one's own favourite distro,
The answer should be (as to be expected), "that depends on ...."

a) Which distro has all the software that she needs?
there might be distro's that are very user friendly install/maintenance, but if essential software is
missing and has to be downloaded upstream, tweaked/patched compiled and so on, well...
b) Who is doing the installation? Your friend? You? Someone else?
If the installation procedure require "some skills" to get optimal result instead of point, click,
reboot, get-frustrated, I should say that the most simple might not be  the best choice.
c) who is doing support? Automatic updates based on a rolling release or a "long-term-support" version are
fine, if you have one around to check it, and help out if it "automatically does not work anymore"
d) hardware support ....
Yeah, linux supports more HW than Microsoft, but I mean, some distro's load such amount of unrequired
rubbish, that you run out of cpu/mem before you can do anything.
e) desktop choice. Some distro's offer only a desktop that is far, far from the windows-user experience.
You might up with a working system, with all required SW on it, but if the end user cannot work with it... Even a
simple migration from KDE3->KDE4 have resulted in holy wars.
f) application support. I have witness a distro that did not bother to keep up even security related
software. When pinging on it, the reply of the maintainer was "No one asked for it."

Someone mentioned Ubuntu. They got certainly a lot of attention. And I have to agree, it's basic
installation is as simple to install as, let say windows-7. But there the party end.

Best advise should be, use a spare machine, try and make the decision based on your friends experience, and
the quirks you encounter during installation & maintenance

A Linux for the totally maintenance free

Have a friend who wants to try getting away from windows, which,
in spite of all the AV software the vendor had installed on her
windows 7, it was plagued by viruses that rendered it unusable.

So, since she is not technically savvy, I was thinking of finding a linux
distro that is practically self maintaining, as she has zero tech savvy for
doing things like updates, configurations, fililing abrt reports, .....etc.

Any ideas what linux to use for such a person?

Thanx.

Error 2002 is usually a permissions/ownership problem. Try:

cd /var/lib/mysql
touch mysql.sock
chown mysql:mysql mysql.sock
chmod 1777 mysql.sock

now make a sym link into /tmp

ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp
then
chmod 1777 /tmp

( These are set in /etc/my.cnf... IF that file exists on a Mac!)

Then stop and re-start the mysql server (mysqld)

My wife's MacAir is a black box to me too. I have NO idea how services 
are started on a Mac. Google may be your friend.

I found that rc-local.service was not run consistently.

Create a crontab *as root* and use the  <at> reboot command for cron.

ie a line like ' <at> reboot /usr/local/sbin/my-startup-backup.sh

Regarding this:
rsync -av --delete /home/programmers/Labels/*.java /media/saved_lab
  rsync -avr --delete /home/programmers/Labels/*.java /media/saved_lab

The message that I get is :

sending incremental file list
rsync: link_stat 
"/home/programmers/java/PROJECTS_development/Labels/*.java" failed: No 
such file or directory

There is something very wrong here. I suspect that you have edited the

selecting some kind of files using the resync command

Hi,

I am able to backup files with this command:
 rsync -av --delete /home/programmers/Labels /media/saved_labels

but I am not able to select some kind of files doing the backup

I tried in many different way:

 rsync -av --delete /home/programmers/Labels/*.java /media/saved_lab
 rsync -avr --delete /home/programmers/Labels/*.java /media/saved_lab

The message that I get is :

sending incremental file list
rsync: link_stat "/home/programmers/java/PROJECTS_development/Labels/*.java" failed: No such file or directory (2)

sent 18 bytes  received 12 bytes  60.00 bytes/sec
total size is 0  speedup is 0.00
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1165) [sender=3.1.0]


===========

I would like to know how to start this command (after it is inside a shell script) at the boot.

Thank you very much

Regards

Angelo

Notification Process Doesn't Show Progress

Whenever I use dolphin to copy files from directories on my harddisk to 
a mount, irrespective of whether that mount is a USB Stick or a network 
mount, the progress is displayed in the notification application sitting 
in the system tray. This notification application does not show an 
updating progress bar, instead it shows it as 100% complete with a 
transfer speed of 0 B/sec, but the animated icon for the notification 
app indicates it is processing. How do I get this app to show the real 
progress, instead of its currently functionality of only notifying when 
the process has actually completed?

regards,
Steve

XBMC Missing NFS Support

XBMC for fedora as supplied by the RPM-fusion respository appears to not 
have support for nfs compiled into the rpm. Does anybody know why that 
is, or is it the case that in order to get it I have to compile libnfs?

regards,
Steve
