I had lately the problem, that the new Skype version 188.8.131.52 mutes all other sounds (e.g. playing videos) when a notification sound is played. This is quite annoying, since skype normally notifies at all occasions, when a contact logs on, when a contact logs off….

I recently ran across a bug when installing Fedora 20. The installer crashed when trying to probe mdraid. This also happened when I (completely) disconnected the array from the computer. The problem was, that the installer was probing the /etc/fstab in the old fedora installation I wanted to overwrite. Here the raid array was mounted as
/dev/md127 /home ext4 defaults 1 2
This is however now anyway deprecated Continue reading fstab mount by UUID
I read recently about Problems with binary drivers in Linux due to UEFI. This does not allow the kernel to load any unsigned modules (like the Nvidia binary driver). Apparently there is a solution to this. Then one can try to use this guide to install the binary drivers.
