How long will Fsck take to fix my flash drive? vfat drive, Fedora 20 computer.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 20, 2014
I wonder whether you could help with a query:--
I have a flash drive of 64 GB with a bunch of corrupt files on it (all in a single directory). I asked fsck to scan the drive and it offered to fix this directory, noticing that it is corrupt. How long should it take?
The size of the corrupt directory is confusing -- file manager claims that it is around 50 GB (which is probably nonsense because, with the other data, that would exceed the capacity of the flash drive. File manager, for 'Properties' shows the memory-usage pie chart shows that I would expect prior to corruption, a bunch of data with a little space (around 53 GB), but claims that the drive contains 103.1 GB in total (on a 64 GB drive!).
So basically, fsck is scanning what claims to be 50 GB of data (but was around 2 GB before it corruped). It's been working for around 8 hours, you could fry an egg on my laptop's heat-sink and fsck is running on around 99% CPU.

[SOLVED] Change resolution on Fedora 20
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 29, 2014
I just installed Fedora 20 on my desktop computer of about 3 years old. It has a Radeon HD 3400 graphics card and the detection and installation worked fine. Except for one little thing: the resolution. My monitor has a 1920x1200 resolution, but I do not have that option in the Settings -> Displays screen.
My Xorg log is at http://ur1.ca/i2ctp .
I have quite some Linux experience and remember fiddling a lot with xf86config to get the right resolution. Now it is all auto-detect (yay!) and all, but when something doesn't work right, I don't know how I could force a driver or change a setting.

[SOLVED] Unable to control display Fedora 20
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 15, 2014
Hi I resonantly installed Fedora 20 on my lap top ProBook 4540s. I am unable to control the display brightness among other issues that I am trying to figure out how to fix
Under /sys/class/backlight/ there is acpi_video0 and intel_backlight. If I use the keyboard shortcuts it goes and edit /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness rather then /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness causing it to have no effect on the backlight.
But from the command prompt if I do
echo 1500 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
and it works
How would I go about fixing this, the file
has 0 bytes and if I try to regenerate this by issuing Xorg :2 -configure
I end up with below error

How best to go from Fedora 20 to fedora 21 on SSD?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 10, 2014
Looking for some good advice on the move to Fedora 21.
Up until Fedora 19 I had been running two spinning disks, and alternating between the two at each upgrade, doing a clean install, using a separate Home partition.
I now have Fedora 20 on an SSD, and wonder if a clean install is going to impinge on the wear levelling count, as it normally involves repartitioning. I suspect that repartitioning does affect the wear levelling count, but not really sure.
The alternate approach is to use Fedup, but the advice has generally been to do a clean install.
Is Fedup reliable enough to go this route?
Any Good advice gratefully received.
Install Windows 8 alongside Fedora 20 Laptop System
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 7, 2014
I have a Lenovo laptop which original supported Windows 8.1 (actually, Windows 8.1 came pre-installed in it, it is G50 Lenovo).
Now that I am now a Linux user and have installed Fedora 20 so as to become familiar with Linux OS, I have transferred most of my apps (which had no alternative for linux at all) using Wine / Playonlinux but some of the apps including some PC games won't work at all.
Hence, in order to tackle this problem, I have to install Windows 8.1 again but I want to keep using Fedora 20. In other words, I'll use Windows 8.1 only when I need some specific programs to run, otherwise I'll mostly use Fedora 20.
Now, I have searched some tutorials and they all are for the scenario when you have Windows installed and you want to dual boot with Fedora but what about when you have Fedora and you want to dual boot it with Windows?
Can anybody please elaborate the steps for me. I have 64-bit architecture.
Thanks for your time. Anxiously waiting fo
My Fedora 20 server download speed is very slow?

My Fedora 20 server download speed is very slow?
I am running Fedora 20, Apache, PHP, MariaDB.
Is there a way OR configuration of a file I can edit to speed up my FC 20 server. I am using it as a file server. I have many files I usually download from other places. I type in the URL and download my files. Currently, when I downloading 20GB ZIP file from somewhere else. It is taking a extremely long time. The download speed is 2.6MB per second. Currently, right now I am in front of my FC 20 SERVER and I am testing downloading a 20GB ZIP file from my windows laptop which is on the same 192.168.1.0 local LAN. And sometimes the SPEED is .1 MB OR 2.5 MB. Any ideas as to why this is happening? Do I need to make any changes to any config files?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Heat issues on Macbook Air 6.2 2013 running Fedora 20
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 18, 2014
So I've recently installed Fedora 20 on my macbook air 2013 on an SSD partition (got the mba second hand recently with the sole intention of running a linux distro to use for my development work). I'm building a browser game in HTML5 canvas and liked the form factor of the air, in spite of it being Apple which I generally despise as a company. It's all gone pretty well on the whole, most stuff works out of the box, some grief installing wifi drivers as I've seen is the norm but that's sorted now, I've even got the suspend/resume backlight bug fixed thanks to a home-brewed driver by Patjak. Not bad for a linux noob!
One rather serious problem remains however. The macbook does idle quite hot in Fedora (and other flavours I've tried from live USB), but this isn't too bad. BUT as soon as I fire up any GPU intensive application, such as my browser game (or even just youtube videos) the laptop rapidly becomes worryingly hot. Within 30 seconds its up to 80 degrees C. I realise t
[SOLVED] Apache 2.4.10 Fedora 20 Virtualhost not accepting SSL

I'm playing with Apache on Fedora 20, which comes with v2.4.10. I've got the server up and running just fine and the default site works with and without SSL.
Now, I want to set up a Virtualhost. This Virtualhost works fine. But when I go to set it up for SSL, I get no config errors or any feedback and the default site appears under https.
Here's my virtualhost:

I am new to Fedora so I tried to find some books to learn Fedora 20, but I came across books about much older versions (fedora 7). Can somebody tell me any book from which I can learn fedora 20?
