Troubleshooting  - 
So far, Fedora 22 is a bust for me on my thinkpad.  I can't get the X server to recognize any input.  No keyboard, no touchpad, no trackpoint, and not even usb mice.

Everything works fine at the console.  Even with the X server running I can see input events with /usr/bin/libinput-debug-events.  But the X server simply refuses to acknowledge any input.

I have selinux disabled.  I have tried using the noveau video driver, the nvidia proprietary one, and even the fbdev driver.  Video doesn't seem to make any difference.

I do not have an xorg.conf, so I'm not relying on any manual configuration.

Here's the relevant part of Xorg.0.log, which shows that the libinput driver is loading the matching input devices.

Anyone else experiencing anything like this?  I'm going to have to revert back to Fedora 20.

Thanks. I'll give that a try next time I'm working on it. I did already try disabling the wrapper and making Xorg setuid root directly. Didn't change anything, so I changed it back.

I'm having issues connecting an Android phone via USB to my Fedora 22 workstation. The kernel doesn't seem to detect the usb connection most of the time. But when it does, it only lasts a couple of seconds and the usb link disconnects by itself.

What I found out right now:

In powertop, I disable all autosuspend for all USB devices and controllers. No changes.

When I disable " Runtime PM for PCI Device NVIDIA Corporation GK107GLM [Quadro K1100M]", the USB devices magically gets detected, and it lasts for a longer time than before, but it eventually gets disconnected. As soon as I re-enable runtime PM for the Quadro card, the connection to the phone vanishes.

I never had problems with connecting my phone to my laptop until a couple weeks ago. Is it a 4.0 kernel bug ?

I am seeking some advise about journalctl.  I frequestly use it to check in on the state of my server.  Mostly I use it to check how hard the internet is ponding on sshd.  I run the following command, "journalctl -u sshd | grep password".  My problem is that when I run that scrolls forever.  I was wonder if there is a way I would narrow my review of data based on date.  I mean sometimes it scrolls for almost 30 minutes. 

What I would like to do with look at maybe a day at a time.  I would like to look at all the entries for that day.  Eventually, I want to pipe that into a program that will email that list so I don't have to log in every day.  Or if somebody starts pounding my server I can log in and add their IP to ipset.

No it does not. What you might also want to add is "-b". This reduces the search set to the current boot.

Hi all, 
two days ago one of my friend is no more able to login in F22, KDE.
The login never finish, so he can't enter in his desktop, see the pics below.
The graphic card is an ATI, with open driver.
I tried (communicating through whatapp, because he lives in another city) several things:
1) check the journal, sudo journalctl b -p err
That give him the page with the error below
2) because the error seems be in kscreenlock, I tried with sudo loginctl unlock-session, then ctrl+alt+F1 and tried to login again but it block on the same point.
3) "sudo journalctl -b | grep xorg" doens't produce any ugly message
4) tried also to add a new user, "test", just to see if there was some misconfig (I must admit, it is in my "desperate try" list)
5) tried also to remove the .Xauthority file
6) I ran out of ideas. Especially because I haven't that pc in front of me, so I'm limited in the number of "try and fix" I can do per hour :)
7) Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated! ^_^

+Adam Williamson Yeah, but from the time my friend enter the credentials to the time login hang as per the image, they are passed just few seconds. I doubt the screenlocker kick in meantime.
I tried killing it (take the pid from pgrep kscreen*, then kill -9 pid), but the login stay broken.
Tried to check the disk forcing fsck from the kernel command line with fsck.mode=force, the disk seems in good shape. Also no ugly messages about disk from dmesg (, neither from journalctl -b /dev/sda5 (it says no entries)
Tried to look into abrt, but the only recent directory (28 august) was about kscreenlocker only (

I think that what I need is a way to look on what call or step sddm hangs. Calling who? startkde? kdeinit5? I don't know.
I though to kill the graphical session and then, from a terminal, call directly startkde or startx, hoping to see some errors in the terminal but:
startx -> the screen became black and only the mouse remains visible. The user can move the mouse but nothing other than that.
Then I switch on another terminal just to look into the xorg log with "tail  -n 30 /var/log/Xorg.0.log" (, but I don't see nothing special
xinit  /bin/startkde -> a lot of lines, then black screen with everything frozen, mouse included.

to discover some error messages from startkde or startx, should I use commands like:
journalctl -b | grep startkde
journalctl -b | grep startx
and maybe the status of sddm with
systemctl status sddm

Unfortunately, my troubleshooting skills about the lower layer stack (kernel+init) are too poor. :-(

I'm looking for good documentation on building packages for +Fedora Project​. Something a little easier to understand than the wiki page
Greg Swift's profile photoAdam Williamson's profile photo
Building a live image is relatively easy - that wiki page is more or less correct, I might make a few tweaks to it tomorrow if I remember. Generating the other types of ISO is harder, but the releng scripts - - sorta show how they work, if you can follow it. 'pungify' and 'run-pungi' are the scripts that do most of the work; 'pungify' creates the nightly images, 'run-pungi' is for TCs/RCs.

There's a bunch of projects underway to build a much better process than 'a directory full of shell scripts driving various pungi commands and Koji tasks', but that's what there is right now...

I don't normally post screenshots in here, but I find that my Gnome 3 desktop is at its best now. The use of extensions in Gnome 3 enables us to really customize our computing experience.

Add the Arc theme for Gtk+, Shell and Firefox, and you have a really compelling experience!
