Fedora :: Requirement For Updated Software To A Reboot?

Feb 19, 2010

I am relatively new to Fedora and appreciate it is intended to be a bleeding/leading edge distribution but the continual requests to reboot the computer after updates is intrusive and seems rather odd for a unix operating system. It is often not clear to me why it is necessary when I look at the names of the items triggering the request.

Fedora Installation :: F12 DVD Openssl Doesn't Match Python Requirement / Resolve This?

Mar 17, 2010

I upgraded from F11(x86_64) to F12 with no reported errors. (expected an update session to follow, but it didn't.)
Tried a manual "yum update" and it aborted with a notice that libssl.so.8 was not found (required by python-2.6.2). I didn't find anything useful at wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq.

The DVD installs python-2.6.2-2 (8/21/09) and openssl-1.0.0-0.10.beta3 (10/16/09). /usr/lib/libssl.so.10 is a symbolic link to libssl.1.0.0. libssl.so.8 is not found, really.
I thought of replacing openssl with one from F11 but it was required by too many packages - couldn't remove.

I tried to find a later rpm of python, but couldn't locate any Fedora directories with individual packages.

I've searched the web and the forums. What am I missing?

Fedora :: Way To Reduce Running Time / Memory Requirement Of Update Process?

Aug 14, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire netbook with 1GB RAM and 1.6 GHz dual-core 32-bit x86 chips. The KPackageKit / yum / rpm chain is running too slow for me. In addition to the time required to download any new packages or updates, it seems to require at least one full minute of processing time to install each package, update, or bug fix, no matter how small. Another full minute is consumed for each package in "cleaning up."Running yum from the command line takes nearly the same amount of time.During this time, I cannot run any other applications without severe thrashing. It seems that a full gigabyte of memory is in use with some 100M swapped out to disk.

Is there any way to reduce the running time and memory requirement of the update process?While not updating or installing software, I do not normally run out of memory (i.e. begin thrashing) until I have about a dozen browser tabs open, or the like.

Security :: Getting Rid Of Certificate Requirement In MUTT

Apr 7, 2010

When running MUTT on a RHEL 5.4 box, I get the message:
Server certificate has expired

This certificate belongs to:



I choose "accept always", but the same message appears next time. I do not wish to have a certificate requirement for MUTT and did not intentionally set the program up to include this feature. How can I get rid of it? My second choice would be to get a new certificate, but then I have to go through this every year. I have MUTT working on two other servers and this does not happen.

Fedora :: Possible Bug In Updated GnomeManager?

Dec 11, 2009

I did my updates for F11 as I do often and afterwards booted in verbose mode to see anything different.The update was done 3 days ago and here's the log file..Starting NetworkManager daemon: ** (NetworkManager:1899): WARNING **: State file /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state parsing failed: (2) Error creating state directory /var/lib/NetworkManager: 13.[60G[[0;32m OK [0;39m]As noted, it says OK and the network still connects as usual but this warning msg didn't happen until the update.Is this a bug with the new Gnome Network mgr or could it be related to the new F12 release?I plan to upgrade or clean install F12 soon. Been using F11 since Aug.5 and I really like it by far the most stable Gnome of any distro I've tried. Was a KDE fan until now lol. I never liked the idea of KDE4.x but it is maturing. But-- most dists don't even offer tried-true KDE 3.5.10 anymore.ay need to fwd this issue with GnomeNetworkManager to the bug forums for Fedora/RHEL.UPDATE: I installed the updated SElinux Policy (testing) via rpmfind.net.selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted and the issue with the NetworkManager error went away!!I assume this package will be released as an update soon

Fedora :: F15: /var/log/dmesg Not Being Updated?

Jun 13, 2011

I run F15 on my desktop PC and /var/log/dmesg is not being updated. I used preupgrade to upgrade from F14 to F15 on June 3. I boot F15 at least once per day. /var/log/dmesg has not been updated since June 3. /var/log/dmesg was being updated correctly when I ran F14. On f15, if I issue "dmesg" from the command line, I get the expected result. Is this a bug?

Fedora Installation :: How To Updated To 13 From Core 4

Sep 27, 2010

I set up my home server like 3 year ago on a Fedora core 4, I am running a NAT, firewall and FTP very smoothly on it. In the past 3 years, it has been doing perfectly without any modification/ upgrade. But recently, I just realized I might need a VPN server on it, but the recent release of OpenVPN doesn't support Fedora core 4 anymore, therefore I suddenly want to make an upgrade. I've read the articles/ manual for Fedora 13, yet I do not find any suggestion on how to upgrade to 13 from core 4.

how can I do an upgrade in the easiest manner as I don't want the server cease working too long (I need its NAT for my network).
