submission rate limit advice

I've tightened or rather overtightened several postfix limits, in what
seemed like a good idea at the time...

noticed now this warning, this user is on a dynamic IP, so can't add his
IP to exception:

going by the counter "Connection rate limit exceeded: 125", what values
should I alter?

hidden grub menu feature, bootloader writing to grubenv


The more I think about the bootloader writing to grubenv, the more I'm
not a fan. I'm really suspicious of even the general case of anything
doing (over)writes outside of the file system. Is block device writing
something all UEFI firmware support? Even with Secure Boot enabled?

Setting aside the default Workstation partitioning, some valid
alternative schemes that I expect are problematic:

- On UEFI, the installer supports (against all advice) using mdadm
raid1 to sync multiple EFI System partitions. GRUB writing to grubenv
is going to write to which device?

Intent to orphan coan


I am planning to orphan the coan package in a week or so unless someone
else is interested in taking on the package.

"Coan is a software engineering tool for analysing preprocessor-based
configurations of C or C++ source code. Its principal use is to simplify a
body of source code by eliminating any parts that are redundant with
respect to a specified configuration. Dead code removal is an application
of this sort." (from the project website).

Coan is somewhat dead upstream.

Meeting summary

LinchPin v1.6.2 (Update Release) is now available

We are happy to announce the release of LinchPin v1.6.2 today!

Ask: can we limit to arguments size to uint16_t?

Now, call_info->orig_argc (passing argument size (we can ignore splat
argumens)) is int (32bit on recent systems).

Can we limit this size to 16bit (uint16_t)?
Do you have any program which have arguments size exceeds 2^16?

Machine generating code can exceed. For example:
`bitmap =, ...)`

Any opinion?


Centos7/Kde4 freeze


I have a fresh install of centos 7.4 with KDE on a laptop (latitude 5590)
connected to a DELL WD15 dockstation with an additionnal screen.
It works quite well, I have 2 screens side by side (default config), but....
If I add a second menu bar for the screen connected to the dockstation (KDE
allow for this) it is not possible anymore to start a kde session if the laptop
is not connected to the dock station (eg: at home), kde freeze and never show
any menubar. I have to use gnome to login and remove the .kde directory.

Is there a way to avoid this ?



libbson and libmongoc 1.13.0 in F29


I just update mongo-c-driver to 1.13.0

ABI/API is compatible

<a href="" title=""></a>

<a href="" title=""></a>

Warning: headers paths have changed

from /usr/include/libbson-1.0
to /usr/include/libbson-1.0/bson

from /usr/include/libmongoc-1.0
to /usr/include/libmongoc-1.0/mongoc

But a compatibility header still available in previous location, so this
change "should" not affect any dependent package.

daemon.json file not found in /etc/docker dir in Ubuntu 16.04.5


I am running Ubuntu 16.04.5
Have installed 'Docker version 17.12.0-ce, build c97c6d6'

I want to modify couple of path's in daemon.json but I am unable to
locate daemon.json file under /etc/docker.
Also, I am unable to locate this file anywhere if I do 'locate *.json'

After searching I found 1 or 2 discussion where it is suggested to

it? And will that impact currently running docker service?

F29 hidden GRUB, problem testing and how to unhide

I've got a Fedora 29 Silverblue installation in a VM. First boot I see
the GRUB menu, and after that it's hidden. And I can't figure out how
to unhide it. Boot is failing before I get multiuser login or ssh, so
extracting information to troubleshoot/bug report isn't possible.

Repeatedly pressing or holding Esc doesn't work.
Spacebar doesn't work.
F8 doesn't work.

So now I'm stuck. Yeah, I can reinstall, and before rebooting make
sure whatever is hiding the GRUB menu is disabled, every time I do

Compiling 2.4.34 on linux against a non system openssl version

I saw that -Wl,--as-needed would be enabled by default on Fedora 29, it

Is this an MPI bug?

Fedora Atomic Host Two Week Release Announcement: 28.20180917.0

A new Fedora Atomic Host update is available via an OSTree update:

Version: 28.20180917.0

We are releasing images from multiple architectures but please note
that x86_64 architecture is the only one that undergoes automated
testing at this time.

Existing systems can be upgraded in place via e.g.

mod_macro, unix domain sockets, php-fpm pool config files

mod_macro and unix domain socket functionality in Apache are nice features, thanks to whomever put in the time and effort developing/maintaining.

We have looked for an equivalent of Apache mod_macro for php-fpm in order avoid having to create a php-fpm pool conf for each Apache virtual host using unix domain sockets.

No luck thus far.

Does anyone have techniques they use for generating large number of php-fpm pool config's utilized by Apache virtual hosts using unix domain sockets within mod_macro, instead of creating them one by one by hand?


LVM and Backups

Hey there,
I'm testing LVM snapshot to make backups and I've some questions about
snapshot lvm.

In my test case I have httpd, postgresql db and a dataset on a VM.

Running a backup I follow this steps:

1) Stop httpd
2) Create lvm snapshot on the dataset
3) Backup database
4) restart httpd (to avoid more downtime)
5) mount the snapshot and execute backup
6) umount and remove the snapshot

I think that this could be fine (if not please correct me)

Now when bacula performs the backup what happen if bacula are copying a
specified file and this specified file is modified?

Bacula will copy th

Start menu and "running" application instances?


coming from GNOME and playing with KDE neon, I feel mostly home here
right now except for one thing I didn't manage to set up myself: Is
there a way to, in the applications start menu when searching for
Firefox or Konsole, not start a new instance / window of the application
but rather bring a running instance (if there is one) to front?

Thanks in advance and all the best,

Turning off pam for Unix Authentication completely disables Passwords

In my quest to keep things simple and easy, I used to use
pam-auth-update to disable PAM from Unix logins, (this would disable the
password 'complexity' inanity, and prevents pam from automatically
re-enabling it when it updates itself.). However, with Ubuntu 18.04,
that completely disables passwords entirely. Is there a way to
re-enable traditional login?

How to make Postfix filter spam for entries in virtual?

My postfix installation is working correctly (delivery via dovecot, spam
filtering via amavis - spamassasin).

I have some aliases in virtual, eg:

<a href="mailto: ... at mydomain dot com"> ... at mydomain dot com</a> johnDoe

However, for the emails that match an entry in virtual, amavis is not
filtering for spam (resulting in lots of spam reaching my inbox).

How can the configuration be changed so that the emails that match virtual
entries are also filtered for spam?

You can find my file here

Thank you in advance for your help!


NoScript: dropping legacy version (for SeaMonkey et al.)

Dear list,
as mozilla-noscript maintainer I'm dropping the NPAPI/legacy version
of the add-on from the package. I've never actually used it with
SeaMonkey and I don't have any free time to test it. Upstream announced
a long time ago that it will be supported only until September 2018,
when Firefox ESR 52.x becomes EOL.

Very weird problem with handling symbolic links

Hi everyone,

I just discovered something very weird on a vanilla CentOS 7
installation. If I create a link to /tmp as a normal user, it looks like
I can't remove this link anymore. Here's what this looks like:

$ mkdir test_link
$ cd test_link/
$ ln -s /tmp/ link_to_tmp
$ ls -l

mod_substitute not firing with HTTP Status Code 201?


I have a Substitute statement defined for a specific Location as:

<Location "/my/path">

    FilterChain SUBST

    ProxyPass stuff

    Substitute s|fromText|toText|n


A specific request that is handled by this Location returns with HTTP
Status Code 201. The substitution does **not** take place.

Another request handled by the same Location returns with 200, and the
substitution is executed correctly.

Is there anything in mod_substitute (or mod_filter?) that is dependent
on the HTTP Status Code?

Google Code-in

Hi everyone,

GCi is around the corner and it is high time that we formulate a good
amount of tasks with assigned mentors to look after them. We only have 15
mentors right now and it would be great if few others in the community
could chip in as well.

Almost around 13 hours to go until the org application period ends and we
would love to see more tasks and more mentors actively participating.

I see a good start on tasks at <a href="" title=""></a>.

What does 141 mean?

I have a Kerberos authentication problem.

On one computer running Fedora 27, I run kinit to authenticate to the
Fedora servers. After I enter my passphrase, kinit returns exit status
141. Then I run "fedpkg build", and get these error messages:

Kerberos authentication fails: (-1765328352, 'Ticket expired')
Could not execute build: Could not login to <a href="" title=""></a>

On another computer also running Fedora 27, I run the exact same kinit
command. After I enter my passphrase, kinit returns exit status 0.

Build ID conflict?!?

First time I've run into this...

Introduction & Joining Request

Hello everyone,

my name is Christian and I would like to be part of CentOS OpsTools SIG.

I'm a sysadmin for about 15 years now with a main focus on web application
hosting. Most of the time in a global IT environment and with the goal to
keep the systems secure, highly available and on a good performance. I
often had to use a linux distributions that the customer wanted to use, but
in the last 5 years I am in the lucky position to mainly use CentOS.

Orphan/retire gogoc


gogoc is dead to the world upstream (the site is now a
nutritional supplement pusher!), and without gogo6's servers, gogoc is
fairly useless. It's still possible it could be used to TSP tunnel
through one's own servers to get IPv6, but as far as I know, there
aren't any more tunnel services out there that use it.

So, if someone would find it worthwhile to keep it around for their own
tunnelling needs, feel free to pick it up. Otherwise, I'll retire it in
two weeks.

USB question

I play music stored on my PC via a USB connection to my DAC.

The player (HQPlayer) does not detect the DAC after a reboot unless I
physically remove the USB cable and re-insert it.

This suggested to me that some module was not automatically loaded at
boot, so I did lsmod before and after re-inserting the cable to see if
there was a new module in the list after re-insertion.

Building libpq independently of server

Is there a way to build libpq on OSX without buillding the whole server?
I will connect to external server and don't want to build everything
just to get a client library.

If I can't - is there a reason?
I mean it is a client-server DBMS and it should be possible to build
one without the other.

There was a package called libpq that can be installed independently
on *nix, but for some reason it is no longer available.

Can anyone help?

Thank you.

ipset-service save fails when module compiled into kernel

I want to use the ipset-service to store ipsets persistently across boots.
(For use by iptables rules. firewalld has direct support for persistent
ipsets but I need the more general capability of raw iptables.)

I'm using a kernel with ipsets compiled in, rather than loaded as a module.
The support script that saves ipsets checks if the module is loaded before
saving and finds nothing, so aborts.

If you're aware of anything important we have to discuss this week,
please do reply to this mail and we can go ahead and run the meeting.

organizing Google Code-In 2018

First off, sorry for potentially hitting some of your mailboxes more
than once but I wanted to get the word spread out as much as possible.

Now on to the matter at hand: Google Code-In. This is a project Google
hosts where open source organizations participate, providing bite size
tasks and mentorship for 13-17 year olds from around the world. The
winners and their parents get to hang out with Google in San Francisco
for what is ultimately a really, really cool trip.

Ubuntu has participated in this for several years, with Canonical
providing the admins.

Hi List,

It happened just one time too many today, in a rushed moment
sending the wrong email to the wrong person.

Is it possible to exclusively delay sending mail to specific
recipients that appear on in a list?

This way I suspected such an error of an email to one the special
recipients, then I could still delete the email from the queue.

close database /var/lib/postfix/verify_cache.db: No such file or directory
only a postfix stop, rm verify_cache* , postfix start helps.

are there known limitations?

Retiring pgtune

I want to retire pgtune
<a href="" title=""></a>

The original upstream is dead and python2 only:
<a href="" title=""></a>

There is a new upstream based on the original version:
<a href="" title=""></a>

But it is far of being simple. It is made in ruby and node.js. And I do not want to maintain it.
Additionally is is no more command line tool, but web service, which is available online as well:

If you want to take over take this package - not sure why - then please contact me.

replacement or supplement for Nautilus

For the first time in the 10 years I have been using Ubuntu I am not happy
with the file manager. I think Gnome removed a very useful feature. I
want to be able to select all the files in a directory to copy or move.
There does not appear to be a way to do so.

I looked around and found

Hello there,

on a CentOS 6 box, in the need for `meson`, I've installed rh-python36

Developing Private Cache Module

Hello all,

I am a researcher at Lehigh University working on Transactional Memory, a
concurrency mechanism that radically simplifies parallel programming and
hopefully one day will improve the performance of many enterprise

I want to redevelop the shared object cache that is used to filter HTTP
requests. Specifically, I want to serve requests even faster by replacing
the module's current structure with this concurrency mechanism.


Hi all!  I am getting messages in my logs where postfix is doing its
double-bounce email thing.  I am trying to send email to an email server
sitting behind my mail filter appliance (eFA) which routes emails to my
main mail server on my network after scanning inbound messages.

It seems messages get through to one of the users on my mail server,
just not to me, which generates the double-bounce@ email which is
totally annoying.

Set firefox default home page


I am working on a project that require a fedora spin with firefox which
point to specific web url as the default home page.
This will be applicable to all users and I could not find anything on skell
directory against mozilla.

user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "")

But my requirement is to make this change system wide.

Heads up: today's rawhide and F29 updates-testing break gnome-shell login

Apache SSL cerificates


I compile Apache on one server and install the same on multiple servers in
different domains. I am currently working on moving from HTTP to HTTPS. Can
someone help me on what sort of SSL certificate I need to include so that
it works on all the domains. Is a wildcard certificate needed in this
situation or a single public SSL certificate be enough.

postgresql Service Blind

Hi folks.

postgresql fresh install, roles, users, databases, all done. I can log in after I SSH to the box.

I entered my user (myself) in pg_hba.conf:

host all rich md5

When I nmap the CentOS box, I can’t see that port open. I’ve turned off SELinux, so I’m not sure why I can’t see the open port 5432.

What am I missing?

Canon MP272 printer on 18.04

I have a Canon MP272 printer which works fine on 16.04 but although my 18.04 sees it, it can't print to it. All the articles I've found point to the Canon driver page, which only has 32 bit available. Can I use that driver? Seems unlikely, but I can't find a 64-bit driver.
