2017-05-26 14:39:33 -0500 answered a question Questions about Fedora Workstation Software Upgrades

A week later now, I'm running F25 now :).

So what I did was a reinstall, but keeping the home directory. That seemed to work great! I had some driver issues on F24 because my machine has an Optimus setup, and I did as well in F25. After installing the RPMFusion Nvidia drivers it works great. It seems that in F25+, the RPMFusion Nvidia drivers seem to support Optimus devices.

Implement/improve caching. The site currently has a very low response time. Unfortunately I don't know much about Django servers(I'm a PHP SE myself), so I can't give any suggestions.

2017-05-19 16:30:00 -0500 asked a question Questions about Fedora Workstation Software Upgrades

I'm hesitating to upgrade my system from F24 to F25. F24 will be EOL this summer, so I should be upgrading in a few months. Now I have a few questions about the whole thing.

  • How do you guys plan an upgrade?
  • How do you backup your system so you can restore it in case it goes wrong?
  • What are the usual casualties that cause the upgrade to break things?
  • Is it possible to upgrade from F24 to F26? If so, would it be wise?

This upgrade is very critical to me, because I use Fedora Workstation on my laptop for work. I started using Fedora on my work 8 months ago, so this thing is kind of new to me.

2017-05-19 16:12:10 -0500 asked a question Install nginx module nginScript

I'd like to play around with the nginx module nginScript.

When I try and look in the F24 repository, I can't really find the module. So my best guess is that I have to compile it myself, but I'm wondering if that's the right way in Fedora. I also couldn't find any resources about this topic on Fedora wiki.

What's the best way of installing this module?

2017-03-08 03:55:19 -0500 answered a question F24 Workstation - multimedia not playing anymore

It seems I solved my problems by removing chromium-freeworld from the Unitedrpms and removing the unitedrpms repository. After a reboot I could play multimedia again.

Sorry for the hassle!

Since yesterday I just can't seem to play any sort of multi media anymore(audio/video). Video's don't play in Chrome/Firefox, songs can't play in Spotify..

What should I do?

2017-02-16 11:28:19 -0500 asked a question Fedora 24 with Wayland

Wayland seems really nice, and I would really like to start using it as well, as Fedora is getting rid of xorg in Fedora 25+.

When I login using Wayland, everything is really laggy. My mouse lags and sometimes it even freezes. Is this because Fedora 24 hasn't got proper Wayland support yet or because Wayland isn't ready to be used yet? I don't think it's not ready to be used yet, because why would Fedora release Fedora 25 only with Wayland.

Additional information: - I'm using my integrated graphics from my Intel cpu, not a nvidia/amd gpu. - I got rid of my nouvea drivers because I use Intel graphics. - Using Intel modesetting and i915.preliminaryhwsupport in my boot params.

2017-02-16 11:23:02 -0500 asked a question How-to install Chromium Beta version?

Would it be possible to install a less stable version of chromium and get more updates that way?

Currently the Fedora repository is offering chromium version 55, while the current version of chromium is 56. I known Fedora wants to ship stable software, but I'd like to install chromium from a beta channel. I known about copr, but I prefer actual Fedora beta repositories. I also know about rawhide, but I don't want all my software to be cutting edge.

I ended up doing the exact opposite, I uninstalled nouveau and I'm only using i915. What are you planning on doing with your gpu?

2016-11-16 15:55:56 -0500 answered a question hdmi doesnot work, randr cannot detects monitor

I had the same issues on Fedora 24, with a Skylake i7 as well. I ended up replacing the kernel parameter nomodeset with i915.modeset=1 and adding i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 to the kernel parameters.

2016-11-16 15:37:38 -0500 commented answer Ask Fedora: Is it working, and what's the future?

@mattdm At the time of the first Area 51 proposal, how many users did Ask Fedora have? Maybe "we" can do some sort of mailing and a little sidebar "advertisement" on the Ask Fedora site. That could help a lot for the upvotes on the Area 51 proposal.

2016-11-16 07:04:03 -0500 commented answer Can't get dnsmasq to work

Configuring dnsmasq through NetworkManager did the job. I ended up making the custom configuration in /etc/NetworkManger/dnsmasq.d/. Thanks a lot!

2016-11-15 13:12:39 -0500 asked a question Can't get dnsmasq to work

I recently switched from macOS to Fedora 24, and I'm getting pretty comfortable with my new environment.

On my macOS environment I used dnsmasq to wildcard *.dev domains to 127.0.0.1 with the following rule: address=/dev/127.0.0.1

So I made sure the service is enabled and running, by running the following commands:

systemctl enable dnsmasq.service

systemctl start dnsmasq.service

systemctl restart dnsmasq.service

Now when I run ping test.dev, I get not the wanted result. It pings to 127.0.53.53, the wanted result is of course 127.0.0.1. I know that 127.0.53.53 is the same as 127.0.0.1. That doesn't mean that it's all fine, because what that means, is that dnsmasq is not working.

Have I missed a step around here?
