How to stop yumBackend.py?

+2 votes
12,292 views

I'm struggling to stop 'yumBackend.py' hogging the CPU & sending the load averages over 2.00.

I've disabled it via the GUI in Software & rebooted but it's still running every five minutes. Is there a way of dealing with this via the cli?

My Version is: Fedora20.

This is with gnome-shell active and logged into? This is probably spawned by pk-offline-update. Check this
http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2013/11/18/offline-updates-in-fedora-20/

And to disable it

systemctl disable packagekit-offline-update.service
systemctl stop packagekit-offline-update.service

I need to add a Hebrew keyboard in my computer (Fedara 20).

I used the tool system-config-keyboard to select the Hebrew keyboard , but among the possible choices lacks the keyboard that I need..

I thought that this keyboard is not provided by default and must be installed .. but I have not found a chance to do this installation.

I would like to have some information on how to solve my need.

I am using Fedora 20 on two computers and I have also one computer that use Windows 8.

I wont realize a local network with these computers, but I am a little confused about the way to arrange my (client server) network configuration .

I understood that DHCP is the core to do the network configuration, but I have some doubts about how I have to arrange it.

Reading the documentation, I got the opinion that nothing need to do in the computers that have the role of Clients on the net; instead on the computer with the role of Server it need to write the file /etc/dhcpd.conf.

That is exact ?

What other important operation need to do to do because my local network works correctly?

It exists a good PRACTICAL tutorial to accomplish this task?
