I bought a laptop that allows the screen to be folded back so it can be handled like a tablet.
Is there a way to check for this kind of events? I know the state of the lid can be found in /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID0/state , but it only returns closed or open...
Any clues?

Apparently KDE detected the orientation out of the box, but it lacked a decent on-screen keyboard.
So I gave Gnome 3(.18) another shot. Every reason I hated Gnome for, suddenly made sense... Gnome is made with tablets in mind!
I Guess I'll be sticking with Gnome for the forseeable future!

Why the new installed Fedora needs update?
I downloaded the DVD today and installed it.
The number of package that need update is 800+ .

we do test updates, via Bodhi. But that testing does not prove that respun deliverables built from the updated packages would work properly, because that's not part of Bodhi testing, which is focused on whether the updates work as system updates for already-deployed systems, a very different context from the deliverables.

In theory we could do updated Server DVD images with updated packages but the originally-tested installer environment and that wouldn't need much re-validation, I guess. Not sure if it'd be worth it, though, it's not a very heavily used image. We can't do this for lives because the live environment is what gets deployed, in that case, there is no separation.

It might be interesting to revisit the question of respins soon, though, as openQA testing is getting better and better coverage. At some point it may be the case that we have sufficient automated testing to start shipping respins.

F24 Beta has some severe display issues

Firstly some good news. With every new recent Fedora release I've given Wayland a 'sniff test', which it has always previously failed. It didn't support my multi-monitor setup, or basic things like moving windows were unaccelerated. There was always something to immediately say: no, this isn't ready for prime time, yet. With F24 I'm extremely excited to report that this is no longer the case. Feature-wise it looks good to go for my daily developer-workstation needs. The caveat is bugs, of course, and these are a genuine problem. I've experienced 2 issues in 24 hours requiring me to kill my session and log back in. Also, right-clicking on Chrome's bookmark bar doesn't work, which is weird. I do this a lot.

But Wayland isn't the default for a reason, right? I should be using X. Well, no. For some reason, X in F24 Beta on my Lenovo W541 is just unusable. The principal victim seems to be Chrome, which is my browser of choice. It flickers like crazy during most operations. Portions of the browser window are randomly transposed to other areas of the browser window, and remain there until you 'do stuff' which makes it go away and not be replaced with another problem. Scrolling is just unusable for the same reason. And Bluejeans, a browser-based video-conferencing solution we use heavily, now devours the CPU like never before.

TL;DR Wayland is vastly more usable than X, but is still as buggy as you'd expect. If this is a common experience, it's bad enough to block the release.

I addressed this question to one of the Fedora 23 users but no reply from him yet,so I'm asking this question here :

Is Ubuntu 16.04 GNome better than Fedora 23? As you see,I'm an Android enthusiast and I compile custom ROMs for various devices.For the past 4 years I've been using Fedora for android deving purposes.But I had to try something better,RedHat community doesn't support the LTS for Fedora releases so I am kinda sick of upgrading the OS every 12 months (mentioning that I've 100s of GBs of source codes on my HDD which tend to be wiped upon new installation and have to be downloaded again).Would you recommend me to try the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS GNome over Fedora? Also,does the LTS version actually improve the stability over time or they just update the regular packages just for the sake of updating them to the newer version?

I'm about to install fedora 23 on my lenovo R61 laptop, the download states it's 64bit, I have usually had 32bit windows systems on it. Does anyone know if my laptop model will take the 64bit release of fedora and what the difference is?

For laptops of that age the north bridge also needs to be able to address more than 4gb of memory.  I'm not sure about the T/R61 models but the T60 couldn't address more than 4gb even if you upgraded the processor to a T7xxx (which was an easy upgrade).  In fact the system only had 3gb of usable memory because the upper gigabyte had to be reserved for DMA on the pci bus.

So you might want to double check the chipset on that laptop.

I stumbled upon this bug in Fedora 24 Beta: Firefox no longer plays H264 content using gstreamer, uses ffmpeg now

It can't really considered to be a bug because it has to do with Red Hats policies and is marked as "WONTFIX". I somehow can't believe it: Does it mean Firefox will only be usable in Fedora if I install additional libraries (ffmpeg-libs) from another source?

This doesn't seem like a warm welcome to new users ... :(

Could this problem or even similar problems in other applications (I'm looking at audacity and mp3 support) be solved with xdg-app?
This page documents common bugs in Fedora 24 and, if available, fixes or workarounds for these problems. If you find your problem in this page, do not file a bug for it, unless otherwise instructed. Where appropriate, a reference to the current bug(s) in Bugzilla is included.

Well, you can rejoice over the recent news. Fedora will ship cisco repository with H264 codec and integration for Mozolla firefox. How's that sound for great news?

From this weekend I'm migrating back to Linux having been patient with Windows 10 for as long as I could. Fedora is my choice and can't wait to come back. I do have a question, I have been into ROM flashing for Android phones for years and usually use Windows, but can someone please tell me from experience are tools available for Samsung phones like (Odin) and also tools for Mtk devices? Also best universal root tool for Android phones that will run natively from fedora 24? All help will be appreciated but failing that I can always run Windows from virtual box like I used to.

If you only need it once in a blue moon just make a windows VM and use USB pass through, will work fine.

Sorry to ask what is likely a simple question for many of you, but how do I upgrade the Fed24 kernel to 4.6? A link to an easy set of instructions would be very nice.

Ever wondered what new features will be shipped with F24? Here's a preview of some of them.
 
This video is what I've been working on lately.

Basically, it's a short preview of what is going on Fedora 24 Workstation.

I'm especially satisfied by the soundtrack, since I've composed, played, produced everything (obviously, I've used Open Source software only, hehe).

Hey, before going to git-hub for software, try #dnf list software

You might be amazed at what is actually in there.

A few weeks ago, I told someone that KDE Kontact Personal Information Manager (PIM) and Adonadi allowed users to connect to an Exchange network. My apologies. I do not believe that is true. You can connect to an OpenXChange Groupware Server. That is not the same as a MS Exchange Network. If we can access our Exchange Email via IMAP, then Kontact PIM works great. On my system, I can access my school Exchange mail server via IMAP. So far it is working great.

Not only Firefox needs saving. Web and online content needs to be left open. In fact, world needs to be saved from this f-ing bureaucracy.
 
Once upon a time, there were two major browsers that virtually everyone used: Netscape and Internet Explorer, locked in a death-battle for the future of the Web. They went to enormous lengths to tempt Web publishers to optimize their sites to work best inside their windows, and hoped that users would follow.

While Ubuntu focuses on convergence -- smartphones and tablets -- Fedora seems comfortable with the desktop, server, and cloud. You know what? That is not a bad thing. There are far too many Linux distributions nowadays, and if they all started focusing on mobile device types, things would get messy. I find Fedora's narrower view refreshing.
