ReadyMedia multicast discovery on bridge iface

When running a ReadyMedia (aka MiniDLNA, but it could be the case for any application using multicast) server on a bridged interface (like br0), multicast_snooping must be disabled on the bridge:

echo 0 > /sys/devices/virtual/net/br0/bridge/multicast_snooping

to make the change permanent:

echo 'net.br0.bridge.multicast_snooping=0' > /etc/sysctl.d/98-minidlna_no_snoop.conf


QGIS latest on Fedora stable

If you are looking for the latest version of QGIS for your stable Fedora installation (24 and 25 as writing) you can simply add my COPR repo:

sudo dnf copr enable dani/QGIS-latest-stable
sudo dnf install qgis

This repo includes the latest stable QGIS (backported from rawhide when available, otherwise built from scratch) with few changes.
