To enable menu icons in gnome-shell this command does the trick:

Tested under Fedora 22 and 23.

docker as normal user under Fedora 23

See https://docs.docker.com/v1.6/installation/fedora/

“The docker command line tool contacts the docker daemon process via a socket file /var/run/docker.sock owned by root:root. Though it’s recommended to use sudo for docker commands, if users wish to avoid it, an administrator can create a docker group, have it own /var/run/docker.sock, and add users to this group.”

Don’t forget to relogin to make this change take effect.

Install nvidia GTX980 driver in Fedora 23/22/21

I found a good and working tutorial unter http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/.

Mount NFS under Fedora 17

To mount an nfs filesystem under fedora 17 I had to take the following steps:

  • sudo yum install nfs-utils
  • sudo service rpcbind start
  • sudo mount -o hard,intr,noatime 192.168.1.123:/nfs /mnt/nas

The first step installs the needed libraries to be able to mount nfs. This is like nfs-common under debian based distris. The second step eliminates the following error:

mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use ‘-o nolock’ to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified
