Drupal - How to add Calender to Panel Pane

I wanted to add a month view to a panel in Drupal, but when I clicked the pager for the next and prev month it went to a full page and I lost the panel.


Create a panel (it needs a url like "performance") , add the calendar "page" view into the content and on the panels settings window (pane) click Send arguments and then below that in "override URL" add the url mentioned above (i.e. mycalendar) - save and you are done!

When you click on the navigation links, instead of them referring to calendar/2013-09, they will refer to performance/2013-09 which is your panel.

Basic LVM Commands

Since system_config_lvm was dropped from the repository for Fedora 19 and FC20, i needed some commands to extend my Logical volume.

fdisk -l    Shows the physical disk

pvdisplay   Show physical disk

vgdisplay    Show the volume groups

# vgremove fileserver     Remove the volume group fileserver:

lvdisplay     Show logical volumes

lvscan        Summary of logical volumes

vgremove   Drop a whole volume Group

create logical volumes share (40GB) in the volume group fileserver.

Warning: Could not boot swap does not exist Starting Dracut Emergency shell

After I messed up the logical volume my swap was on I got the following on boot:

Warning: Could not boot

Warning: /dev/vg_server/swap does not exist

Starting Dracut Emergency Shell


I can boot by entering the following on each boot:

dracut:/# cd /usr/lib/dracut/hooks/initqueue/finished/
dracut:/# rm devexists-\x2fdev\x2fby-uuid\x2f$
dracut:/#  exit

To fix the problem

I tried the following command but it made no difference

Fedora 20 getting started

I installed the Mate Desktop for Fedora 20 becasue I really liked Fedora 19 Mate.

VMWare and Virtualbox on Fedora

I installed Windows7 on a VMWare player on my old Fedora 14 box, now I want to upgrade to Fedora 20 and migrate from VMWare player to VirtualBox.

First I made a backup of my Win directory and my windows7x64.vmx file.  Then after doing some reading decided I should try to convert my vmware vmx file to the Open Virtualization Format (.ovf) first.

So I followed the steps and used the following to overcome the errors I saw.
