Ubuntu :: Webcam LED Turns On / Won't Turn Off After Sleep Or Suspend - Fix It?

Aug 10, 2010

My webcam LED turns on whenever my Asus P50IJ laptop wakes up from sleep or suspend, and subsequently will not turn off. I can't tell if my webcam is actually activated or not, and furthermore the light beams right into my eyes and makes my lappy not so usable.

If someone knows why this might be happening or could possibly help me fix it that would be very much appreciated. I'm really trying hard to stick with Linux, but little things like this are making it difficult. I'm kind of a noob, but I'm trying so please be nice.

Truns out, sl-release is blocking my success because sl-release obsoletes fedora-release. Then I tried the Rawhide one and it is still obsoleted. How do I add this Fedora Base repositories to Scientific Linux?

Fedora :: When ABRT Has A Bug / Does It Turn Itself In?

Dec 7, 2010

So last night suddenly my computer started running really slow. Like it would take a couple of minutes for a window to open. I tried to start System Monitor to see what was going on, but couldn't get it to launch. At first I thought something had grabbed the CPU, but eventually I discovered that something was writing a massive amount to the hard disk. The intensive disk activity continued for about 20 minutes as I watched nervously. Just as the disk activity suddenly stopped ABRT popped up a message that disappeared to fast to read fully, but it said something about a file that was too large.

This morning I discovered that about 9 GB of my hard disk had been used up. Using "find -size +1G" I found an 8.6 GB file in /var/spool/abrt /ccpp-1291706342-2244/ called "coredump."I don't know what a coredump is or how to look inside the file to see what might have caused its creation. But I do know that ABRT has not said a word about the incident.

Fedora :: How To Turn Off Software Updates

May 4, 2010

On Fedora 11 x86_64 the Software Update utility is annoying beyond words. I am trying to turn it off, but cannot do so. I have gone to System > Preferences > Software Updates and set it to Check for UpdatesNeverAutomatically InstallNothingCheck for Major Upgrades NeverYet it continues to pop up an icon in the Gnome panel when new updatesare available.If I use the utility to install updates it usually fails because of bugs causing it to fail on "cleaning up." I prefer to check for updates with Yumex when I have time. Although Yumex works reliably, after installing all updates the icon in the Gnome panel remains until after I reboot.I want that icon never to appear in my Gnome panel. However, while there are options in Preferences (which don't work), there is no option "remove from panel." How can I get rid of it permanently?

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Do Not Want To Turn On?

Jul 13, 2011

switched from 4 years Ubuntu use due to Unity, and thus also new to this forum but I hope that you can help me, so I later on can give back to the community.My problem is that the Wireless in Network Manager refuse to go to "on", or to be more correct it goes to "on" for about a second and then back to "off". My computer which uses F15, a Lenovo B560 laptop, have a BCM4313 and the apparent reason is that after that I installed the broadcom-wl and run "su -c 'modprobe wl'" so did I get the response "FATAL: Driver not found". However, the earlier non-existing wireless button in the network manager appeard after the installation, id est the broadcom-wl must have been in plase.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Seem To Turn Off The X Server To Install?

May 13, 2009

I am new to fedora and linux. I have spent the past three days figuring out how to install nvidia drivers for linux. I figured out how to install the drivers but I can't seem to turn off the x server to install it. Everyone says to go to init 3 or what ever, but when I try doing that I just guess this message saying powernow-k8: Your BIOS does not provide ACPI _PSS objects in a way that Linux understands. Please report this to the Linux ACPI maintainers and complain to your BIOS vendor. powernow-k8: Your BIOS does not provide ACPI _PSS objects in a way that Linux understands.

and i also tried sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop but it just says command not found. my gdm is in the usr/sbin directory idk if that has to be changed or not but i'm really new to this and I am completely lost.

Fedora :: SELinux Turn Off For Specific Program?

Jul 19, 2010

One thing I have had to do to launch Maya every time is disable SELinux.

echo 0 >/selinux/enforce

I type that each time before I launch maya. If I don't it wont start.

Not sure why. Essentially it makes it so I need to be su to run maya.

If I was setting up the workstation to be used by others as well how would I disable SELinux just for starting Maya but nothing else? Or how to do I tell SELinux maya is ok for regular users to run?

Fedora :: Turn That Error Bing Sound?

Dec 21, 2010

I am quite sure I overlooked something, but there is no more option to disable that error sound which blasts your ears when you hit backspace just some times to often when typing into console or autocomplete via tab has no or ambigous options to complete. How can I turn this of? Its not the PC speaker, its just the normal audio doing some weirdo predefined fedora error sound (which drives me crazy).
