Toss away.... Anyhow, one of the reasons for Linux is open source. There are new to Linux folk that think that all bugs shall be fixed by the company or group. This is not how it works. You either report the bug and hope someone nails it or dig in yourself to fix it and if you fix it contribute to the effort.

I've never had the time to dig in and fix more than say a configuration file to get something to work or contribute hardware to a developer but my point here is that Linux is different from Windows when it comes to bugs like this.


Oh yeah, I'd thought of that. I have only 3 usb ports on this machine, one of which is always in use by a unifying receiver for my mouse. It would be nice to avoid plugging in another device leaving just one port for anything else that I need. I have an extra usb dongle lying around, I may try that. Its pretty frustrating that the Fedora crew can't fix this bug. I don't want to toss around insults but to call yourself state of the art and this bug exists for 6 versions??? Come on.


Here's my exit. Not that I'm abandoning you but want to share how I fixed a machine with WiFi support issues when I couldn't change to another distro. FIX! I plugged in another WiFi USB stick and that worked. I disabled the onboard and moved to the next problem.

Now I understand some may gripe about such a fix but here these sticks are from 8 to 20ish bucks and plentiful. Here is the USA and Amazon is quick to deliver so I have that going for me.


As to your WHY part of the question you would have to dig into the load balancer used in your Linux kernal. There were many balancers used in Linux since it rolled out and I didn't bother to keep track as it worked and I didn't need to be that close to the kernal inner workings. But that doesn't mean you can't investigate which balancer they use in your kernal.

As to the does it cost, I found more cores reduced total run or startup times so the load balancer definitely reduced costs.


You left out details that might help. Always supply full model numbers, age and prior service. For example if it's years old I always try a new CMOS battery (cheapest part, might fix it, worth the risk.) Some feel that spending 1 dollar is too much a risk and maybe they are telling you they want a new laptop.

The symptoms are not a sure sign it's this or that but I'd try the new battery then the usual soft reset which is simple. Remove the power adapter, unplug the big battery then press and hold the power button for 60 seconds. Release, slip in the big battery, apply power and re-test.

1+ for CMOS battery

When I plug in AC to my old Toshiba laptop red and white LED comes on. If I press the power button to turn the PC on there will be a blinking white light in between the power and charging LED which red and white but not fan spin. Or display on the screen. I have even tried connecting to external monitor yet no display. Pls help me


That's one deep rabbit hole. Read and think over the discussion at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1409631

Notice this?

Some HP notebooks using this rtl8188ee hardware module can't get AP scan results with pin-based interrupts mode, enabling MSI interrupts mode could fix it.

Now you might complain that this isn't exactly your version but go down that rabbit hole to find that make, model of the PC and WiFi hardware is needed to see if anyone has a fix.

Hope you remembered to plot a return path to the surface.


So this is a new installation of Fedora. I'd not used Fedora in many months prior to this point. I had Fedora 25. However the Wifi on this machine is quite troublesome.

There are times when the connection will stop completely. I will try to load a webpage and the connection just dropped. It tries to reconnect but sometimes it doesn't even show nearby Wifi APs.

It just keeps cycling and never shows anything. I am very frustrated.


@J, that's not how this works.

Read https://www.daniweb.com/programming/threads/435023/read-this-before-posting-a-question first before you reply.

If you want to hire someone to write an app, then you put the details and SRS (software requirements specification) up along with the pay for the job.

If you are writing "Gimme the codez." then I think you need to be clear about that but still need to read https://www.daniweb.com/programming/threads/435023/read-this-before-posting-a-question first.


I'd have to know a lot more about the app. Many batch jobs are run as scripts and for each line in the script, the task scheduler should start a new task on another CPU according to its rules.

If you want to get into this you'll have to know more about the batch job and how it works.

https://www.cs.columbia.edu/~smb/classes/s06-4118/l13.pdf notes CPU affinity if you want to lock it to a single CPU.


Hello , I am not Linux and Unix expert so maybe this is a simple question to be answered , I am just not sure. I have a sever with 8 cores (running CENTOS) that executes a batch job once a day for few minutes . I tried to monitor the CPU usage foreach core when the batch is executed using the top command and then pressing '1'.

There I saw something really strange (for me). Initially I saw that job being executed in Cpu5 (it was obvious because it is a job that needs almost 100% of the CPU that is executed) , then Cpu5 usage dropped and Cpu1 usage starting to raise , and then Cpu1 was 100%. That happened several times switching other CPU cores as well (randomly as far as I can tell).

Could a single job that is not using threads change in what CPU core is executed? Is that normal? And if so why is it happening?

Thank you for your responses in advance.


There are a whole lot of projects that are attempting to do this. I suggest you try one of the options in this Google search:


But, that's a pretty darn big web.config. I'm going to bet that you're still going to have to do a lot of manual cleanup. Why not start from scratch using the original web.config as a guide?


I recently created a post thinking I had blown up my bootloader but I've actually narrowed the problem down to the SSD on which my home directory is mounted. The reason my computer has not been booting is because my system is not mounting my home directory's SSD. This started after I opened my box and installed a new SSD which is now unplugged and not being used. Every since I opened my box my computer wouldn't boot again. I edited /etc/fstab while booted in a live USB and commented out the line telling my computer to auto mount the SSD drive to /home/user/. After that my computer has booted up just fine, except that I'm given a generic home directory without all of my files.
When I try to mount the drive manually this is what I get.

user@mothership ~ $ sudo mount /dev/sdd1 /home/user/
