If USB is set for UEFI make sure your BIOS is set to boot to UEFI. When you select your USB boot device from the boot menu normally it should say UEFI next to it in order for it to work. I've had success setting up a bootable Fedora UEFI device in the past with RUFUS USB on Windows as well as the Gnome Disk Utility.

There are, at least, two things this could be. The most likely is that ps is aliased to ps -A (or ps a; the a without the - results in behavior similar to -A) on fedora; which would explain the output format. On each system type which ps which will reveal what aliases if any are being called instead of the executable directly. You can bypass any aliases by ...

It might be that the PackageKit cache is filling up. PackageKit is used by GNOME to handle updates. If you use Yum or DNF on the CLI then don't need these. You can remove the .rpm files in /var/cache/PackageKit/metadata/updates/packages and set PackageKit to not store them any longer. There is a setting in the file /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf # Keep ...

Keep in mind that installing the Uefi software to /boot/efi will not do the trick. It will look good, and you can see all of the software and files in the /boot/efi directory, but it won't work. The missing step is to MOUNT your new UEFI partition onto the /boot/efi directory. Once the UEFI partition is mounted, then when you install the UEFI software and ...

I don't believe Windows will resize the partitions for you. So there's no point deleting partitions in Windows, because you won't reclaim any space. I think a better bet would be to use a Linux Live image. Technically you could use the Fedora install media and install GParted on the live system. However I think it makes more sense to use the GParted live ...

I fixed the issue in a very bizarre and unintentional way. I tried to install the proprietary nvidia drivers by following this tutorial and performing dnf install akmod-nvidia "kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)". I'm not sure if I installed the wrong drivers, or if it conflicted with nouveau, but it resulted in an error message upon reboot. I had to ...

Another option, before you attempt anything more drastic, is to use BleachBit to remove temporary and other unneeded files. From wikipedia: BleachBit is a free and open-source disk space cleaner, privacy manager, and computer system optimizer. It should be in the package manager, so this should do it. sudo yum install bleachbit Or download from ...

More general answer for LVM: Firstly - make sure you have additional unpartitioned storage. Then: Use fdisk to create new partition (safer than expanding existing one) Use pvcreate to create physical LVM volume: pvcreate /dev/sdxx Use vgextend to extend existing LVM group using new physical volume: vgextend groupname /dev/sdxx You can get group names ...

The / filesystem may be a particular challenge, as that needs to be supported by the boot loader. This answer doesn't specify how to accomplish the requested task, but does provide a workaround. Another option: find a sub-directory (e.g., /big/) which has lots of data. Then copy that data onto your 60GB of space, mv the directory with lots of space (e.g., ...

Good news! pvscan shows PV /dev/sda10 VG fedora lvm2 [141.56 GiB / 77.56 GiB free] — so you should be able to add up to 77.56GiB to any of your filesystems. I'd suggest adding it in smaller blocks (like 10GiB), so you have a reserve to put into /home if you decide you need growth there later. This is a relatively well-tested and generally safe operation, ...
