Hi @superadmin , I saw that you made several new topics.

In all of them I miss enough info’s about your infrastructure.
Please put in your first request more info’s and link it in your followup topics like:

inxi -Fzx

So you can avoid that everyone who tries to help you, has to ask the same questions.

I am very very sorry for creating a lot of topic in the committee but I am very new to linux and to this committee and I don’t know any thing as such…

Can you explain what “Please put in your first request more info’s and link it in your followup topics like:” means…

It looks like that you are going thru the log files and want to eliminate everything what sounds “negative”. If you are so curious please ask google first:

I will google that for you


Is this a good website… I am very sorry I am becoming more like a skeptics…But I want to know how can I become a good linux user or specifically good fedora user who is know to these topics which s/he encounter and solve them.... I also want to become a contributor in linux arena and help a lot of people… Sorry if I am disturbing you :disappointed:

You are not disturbing me, i just help you to get better :wink:


Very few people will lead you down the wrong path with their answers here so it is generally safe to assume that posted answers contain good info.

To make better posts and get more helpful responses please read and follow the suggestions in the New Users Start Here link at the top of the page.

If you really want to learn it is better to actually try (most of) the commands suggested instead of being always hesitant and skittish for fear of harming your system. Since it seems you are likely using a newly installed system, remember that no matter how badly your actions may harm the system it is easy to do a new install and start over.

Many problems people have had may be found (usually with a solution) by a search on google or on this forum. Those searches may give an answer to your questions or at least provide better ideas on how to solve your own problems as well.
