$ sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
$ sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=26
This will refresh the repodata with version 26 and then install/upgrade 1000+ RPMS to proceed. Once it’s done, reboot and pray your system comes back up. But if you’re like me and running Nvidia graphics card than when you reboot your system will probably hang after the grub menu. It is advisable that you go grab the latest Nvidia driver ahead of time, unless of course, you like running out of run-level 3 or single user mode.
Here’s a good guide to follow on updating the Nvidia drivers for your new kernel. https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/
On this note, I usually exclude any new kernels from downloading when updating just to avoid the nvidia mess. To exclude using dnf.
Add to /etc/dnf/dnf.conf under [main] section:
Wanted to translate two-digit years into 4 digit years for the 1900s only.
Two digits were getting written as 35-37 or 40-50 in the spreadsheet. This needed to be translated to 1935 1936 1937 or 1940 1941 1942 1943 1944 1945 1946 1947 1948 1949 1950.
for i in seq 35 37; do echo "$i + 1900" | bc; done
for i in seq 40 50; do echo "$i +1900" | bc ;done
By creating a file named ‘years’ with two-digit years on each line.
$ while read line; do content=$(seq $line); for j in $(echo $content);do echo "$j + 1900"| bc;done;echo ""; done < years
Wanted to have Excel do this automatically. But for now, I’m just using this method and copy/pasting results into the spreadsheet. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
Example: Remote host is using port 2222 for sshd.
rsync -avz /path/to/send/ -e “ssh -p 2222” username@hostname:/home/username/to/whatever/path/
Create a new directory.
sudo mkdir newfonts
(any directory name will work)
Copy your new fonts into that directory, they should have the extension *.ttf
To make all these new fonts updated to the system run.
