Back to a single screen with Fedora 21

I got tired of the waiting and just removed the Nvidia RPMs associated. Nouveau drivers will activate the external controller, but ... in the end I may just move on to a different laptop. It's about time. We'll see what that tax refund looks like.

The basic lesson here, I don't have time to fiddle with this hybrid graphics card and it isn't adding to my Fedora experience. It is bringing me less joy.

I wandered around various support blogs and I found that the the best resources are dedicated to the Open source drivers. I'll provide anything related that can be helpful in the troubleshooting. Let me know if you want to pursue it. Right now I am too busy. 

Nvidia GeForce GT 555M on Dell XPS L702 Complications

I am having difficutly launching X with an externally attached monitor with the Nouveau drivers, but it looks like using the Nvidia controller drivers is out of the question as well.

My only error is related to the GLX module, but I
I have removed all nouveau sources and verified that the only packages left are using the following methods:

rpm -qa *\nouveau\*
 -| no output
rpm -qa *\kernel\*
 -| currently running 3.19.1-201.fc21.x86_64
rpm -qa *\nvidia\*

   - | based upon the installation of the akmod-nvidia

I used the akmod-nvidia package for deployment of the 346.47

Review the system info in this paste at fedoraproject

My next step is a rebuild of the akmod-nvidia to see if I can get the swrast_dri.so to build.
Today marks the last day before we drive in to the state of Tennessee. I continue to be a little concerned over the time commitments I will have to make in assisting my sister in her battle against breast cancer, but I am hopeful that our journey will begin there and time for each of my favorite past times will grow with her continued success in this fight. Deanna is a fighter. I can only provide support to this battle-tough woman who faces the suffering and pain of others every day in her daily work, then deals with her own in her off time. I am often humbled by her fortitude.

I am looking at the work related to Docker more and more. After helping Luke to become a package maintainer for etcd and watching it be (rightly so!) swallowed in to Red Hat production by the cloud infrastructure team, I am newly invigorated as a mentor. When my time opens up, I look forward to spending a good amount of my free time on the fourth floor of the Chattanooga library working on my own projects and assisting with the projects of others. I hope to see you there. I will try to spend my time prompting young minds to create using the Fedora Project's features as much as possible.

For leadership, Chattanooga could not be better served than they are right now by Mayor Andy Berke. It was my pleasure to meet with him during the beginning of Code for America's work in the Chattanooga area. I found him engaging and a true listener. His pride swelling with the initiation of great works for the community, not his own personal accomplishments. His active participation in community education and city growth will keep Chattanooga moving in the right direction. My only request to Andy, "Don't forget the arts" already working to raise the consciousness of the citizenry.

So we'll be there soon, less than 24 hours and we'll see what is next. Clean up, healing, community, and love. The greatest of these is love. I think . . . love in the form of a Linuxfest!
