OK, I just upgraded my baremetal machine from Fedora 33 to Fedora 38 (by stepping through 35 and 37 as in between steps). I haven’t used this machine in a long time as I now do most of my testing with VMs. But I’m doing some performance testing that I wanted to know baremetal numbers.
WTF Fedora! 38 introduced a “suspend in 15 minutes if not logged in”. It doesn’t care if you are ssh’ed in or not! What’s worse is that this machine isn’t even hooked to a monitor (serial console only).
Luckily, I found a link that shows me how to disable that. 😛
@rostedt FWIW, I have used Fedora Server for years on my headless servers and it's never done that. Depending how much you want to play with configuring your machine, you could also start from a Server edition and add the packages you need for a Desktop Environment (that's what I used to do when there was no Sway spin).
Even though, I disabled suspend, I still get these broadcast notices! 😆
Broadcast message from gdm@bxtest on tty1 (Thu 2023-10-26 00:01:04 EDT):
The system will suspend now!
But nothing happens, as suspend is now a nop.
