Hello everyone, I've used Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Arch Linux, and decided to use Fedora at my office. After installing Fedora KDE spin, I have encountered the following problems which I really need help of:

Currently only the mouse problem persists, and about the newly installed kernels, I guess it is just better to reinstall? sigh..

[Specs] CPU: i7-8700K

Mobo: ASRock B360M Pro

GPU: GTX 1080 Ti

I haven't installed any particular driver for the GPU yet.

(1) The mouse acceleration was horrible, so I made the following xorg.conf to use evdev instead of libinput so that the system setting mouse GUI will show me more options:

Section "InputClass" Identifier "evdev-mouse" MatchIsPointer "yes" Driver "evdev" EndSection

The acceleration problem is now solved, but instead, whenever I reboot, the mouse is set for the right handed ... (more)

In dnf update and upgrade is the same thing. Both upgrades or updates your system by downloading and installing new updates.

@villykruse I'm a newcomer to Fedora so I don't know things well enough, but when should I do it? The article I saw was doing it every time downloading something new. I mean pacman -Syu never broke anything but dnf update broke the system right from my first day using it so I am a bit scared at this point.

Been using Fedora for many years and have not seem a system broken after dnf update, unless you have some proprietary kernel modules, sometimes a kernel is not hardware compatible with my hardware but has been really rare cases. So my first question will be did you run checksum validation to the image you use to install, did you install any outside repository, normally will advise to install rpmfusion.org to install nonfree. Many people break their Fedora installation installing EPEL repositories.

Another good question is did you run a memory test on that machine, I have experience issues when memory dimm is failing.

Fedora is not all that different than other distros. To list your hardware seehttps://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-...

you're already experienced ...linux system, gently...1~2 years old hardware....almost support hardware, maybe...mother board bios check and may be set like "usb disable "system or it has a some trouble mouse hardware.

normally, Server system like Dell or other support system can be block in bios mode, check in bios or uncertainly, it 'll other mode selected.... plz check system, it'll be easy solve problem. or change mouse.

have a nice day...written by simmon

Thanks. As far as I understand, I have to check the bios, but I slightly doubt it since the mouse is least working; it is just that it always defaults back to right-handedness every time I reboot. Maybe I have to test it with another mouse as well. Thanks for your recommendation!

Start by listing your hardware, cpu , mb, particularly video card, and what and why you did.

Welcome to fedora, hard to know how to fix your problems but I suggest you read up on dnf as dnf is not the same as other package managers

I provided as much information as possible. I'll provide more as needed.

You did several things at random, including using yum that is deprecated since 2015, and two kernels 4.9.16 that simply don't exist in Fedora update repositories. We still don't know which version you have, what you did etc. I would reinstall from scratch and be careful not to mess with installation and not knowing what to do in first place.

The only thing I did with yum is installing something (probably Miktex) and removing it right away; someone was explaining how to install it with yum, hence the beginner's mistake. There are a lot of things I don't know about Fedora, but I still wanted to know, hence why I came to this forum asking for help. It doesn't help me to say that a beginner should know what to do in first place; I wouldn't be here if that were the case.

I asked you some very precise questions. Instead of answering in order to get help you start complaining about being a beginner, and pretending one has to blindly guess what you did. So I assume you're using Fedora Core 3, and the only possible solution to this utter mess is to wipe and install something recent.

Most of the ASRock mobo doesn't support linux mainly because they are targeting gamers build check if they support it well enough. Found another topic like this which include ASRock but different model.

Is it true? I haven't heard of it before. After some googling I did some reddit posts mentioning Gigabyte boards throwing out some problems, though. I mean most mobo manufacturers seem to mention gamers anyway, isn't it?
