Fedora :: Getting Information About Patches From The Command Line?

Nov 26, 2009

When I do System > Applications > Update System, it brings up a list of updates, and can tell me what each update is meant to fix (i.e. "fixes a bug in the flux capacitor so time travel works again (CVE-01234)"). How do I get similar info from the command line- I can't get it through yum, can I?

Fedora :: Need Terminal Command For System Information

Jul 22, 2010

I'm sure this answer is out there but I cannot find it. I thought there was a command you could put in the terminal to find out what version of Fedora you are running and also tell which architecture (either 32 bit or 64 bit) it is. Does anyone know what that command is?

Fedora :: 10 Loading Directly To Command Line?

Sep 18, 2009

I decided on a whim to pursue certifications in other operating systems (currently 70-620 and 70-290 certified with Microsoft) and bought a book on Fedora 10 and installed it on my extra PC. First issue I ran into was that due to my graphics card being an ATI I needed to run in text mode (based off posts on these forums) then once I finally got everything under control and installed, it loads directly into Command Prompt (you folks call it GRUB right?) I can log in as root but I can't do anything this way.It won't even allow me to do things like accept the end user license agreement or create new users or see the GUI.

Fedora :: F12: Ten-second 'DNS' Delay For Command-line Apps?

Dec 15, 2009

I'm experiencing a peculiar problem with Fedora 12. There is a ten-second delay when various command-line applications (e.g. ssh, wget) connect to remote machines for the first time. The delay is also seen when the remote machine name does not exist.Subsequent connections to the same remote machine are immediate.This isn't a DNS delay - the host and dig commands return immediately, for both existing and non-existant hostnames. It's not a reverse DNS lookup by the remote machine either: other Fedora 10 machines do not experience this delay and neither did my two Fedora 12 machines when they were running Fedora 10.

time this was something to do with nscd, the name service caching daemon. Stopping nscd changes the delay to five seconds, but subsequent connections are no longer immediate - there is again a 5 second delay. This implies that nscd is caching the names correctly.The delays are always precisely 10 seconds, or 5 seconds when nscd is not running. I have confirmed this with the time command. There appears to be no odd network traffic (tested with tcpdump) and nscd appears to be running normally. I've confirmed this with a Fedora 12 live CD as well - nscd is not started at boot, but once started, the machine behaves in exactly the way described above.

Fedora :: How To Access The Grub Or Command Line

Dec 18, 2009

with that said i burned fedora 8, 10, and 11 checked the sha1 verified everything was fine i had originally installed fedora 8 on an old pc i had from windows XP without any problems messed with it some, upgraded to 10 again no problems. tired to update 11 got a message about ext3 not found ext4 not found, re installed 10 the loader loads up now i have a blank screen with a cursor it the left hand corner

again i had 10 installed fine prior to all this can any one point me in the right direction to solve this issue or am i way over my head trying to figure this stuff out. i have spent 3 days searching these forums.

i'm just not quite sure what i need to do. oh, i tried to install 8 again and it wouldn't take either. i think the 10 problem has something to do with the graphic driver it's a geforce 7400 nvidia and something to do with the grub, but like i said i get a blinking cursor and not quite sure how to access the grub or command line.

Is there any timer function available through command line?

I use the laptop like a remote control to control my desktop through vnc while watching movies, but changing volume through this setup is a bit too cumbersome and clumsy. I tried alsamixer but it behaves strangely and doesn't change volume.

Fedora :: Reautomount USB Devices From Command Line?

Mar 12, 2011

My USB ports are not easily accessible from where I use my PC, Sometimes, I eject or unmount some USB device, only to realize that I forgot to copy or delete some file. I don't want to get up, go to the CPU, unplug and replug the USB device, go back to my sit. I don't want to execute some boring mounting command as root just to mount this particular device. What I want is a fast command that just rescan my USB ports and mount everything where it should be, as if I have make the effort of standing up and unplugin and repluggin the USB device. Does this command exists

Fedora :: Connect To Network From Command Line?

Mar 23, 2011

I hosed my installation of F14 by installing from some "experimental" repositories. Now I only get XDM at startup and an xterm on login. This would be fine if I could use yum to do some updates, but I have no network connection. I have been over the man page for nmcli dozens of times and none of the options there seems to start anything. I have also tried starting dhclient or using:

ifconfig eth0 up Nothing. So, is there a reliable way I can just connect to the network? This shouldn't be so hard.
