Upgrading to Fedora 28

Fedora 28 is out. So, naturally, I downloaded it and installed it on a machine. It worked fine. So I decided to upgrade more machines to 28. I ran into a couple of minor difficulties.

1. With Fedora 28, desktop icons are no longer there. It gives you a clean desktop - but I want my icons. I found this:

dnf install nemo

Then pico ~/.config/autostart/nemo-autostart-with-gnome.desktop and put into that new file:


[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Nemo
Comment=Start Nemo desktop at log in
Exec=nemo-desktop
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;
AutostartCondition=GSettings org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons
X-GNOME-AutoRestart=true
NoDisplay=true


To start it, do

nemo-desktop &

And that gave me my icons back.



2. And then apache didn't work; this is version 2.4.33

pico /etc/httpd/conf.d/nss.conf

add: NSSEnforceValidCerts off

That's OK, because these servers are only accessed for http, internally.
