My main computer is now on Fedora 24. This time around I only had to uninstall HDR Merge (which was from my COPR and I hadn’t built a Fedora 24 version yet) and OBS-Studio because there isn’t a Fedora 24 package for it yet. Not bad. After rebooting, I didn’t have graphics. Then rebooting once … Continue reading “SuperMario is at Fedora 24”
Fedora 24 was released yesterday. I updated Daisy, my big laptop, first since it’s not critical. If the update broke something I wouldn’t care. The only hitch it had was that I had to reinstall the RPMFusion repos from the RPM for Fedora 24. Otherwise it was saying that one of the packages wasn’t signed … Continue reading “Fedora 24 is out!”
Upgraded the final computer – the server host that has the VM with our Kodi stuff. It was the least complicated upgrade – didn’t have to remove anything – it just worked. And that was a great change, for once. (Not that the others were too much of a pain).
In my ideal home setup, I’d have computers in every room. I’m not horribly far off, but it’s mostly via old laptops and computers that I’ve retired from regular use or had donated from family members. As more of our movie purchases become BluRay (and with 4k video around the corner), some of those old … Continue reading “Throwing Emby into the mix”
As I documented before, I’ve had problems with Pogoplug and Arch Linux running my servers. Recently I’ve been having problems logging in via SSH on my updated Fedora computers. From what I can tell from a little research, it seems the old way of connecting had a flaw so updated SSH doesn’t want talk to … Continue reading “Home Server Project Update 2: Goodbye Arch Linux”
A few days ago I created a page to keep track of various computer projects I’m working on. I figure this’ll help me keep track of what’s going on and what I’ve written about it and it’ll also maybe serve as a one-stop shop for visitors to the blog who want to see how I … Continue reading “Home Server Project Update 1”

The latest curl works with XBMC (now Kodi) so it’s time to upgrade my main Fedora computer. fedup –network 21 –product=nonproduct So that started running at 1427. The d/l finishes at 1500, but as usual some stuff to take care of. Mostly packages left over from previous versions of Fedora. WARNING: problems were encountered during … Continue reading “Upgrading SuperMario to Fedora 21”
Upgraded my netbook, Kuribo, to Fedora 21. fedup –network 21 –product=nonproduct Went off without a hitch. Like the new login theme. Waiting to make sure the curl in F21 works with Kodi (formerly XBMC) since the current newest version in 20 doesn’t work.
