ubuntu-release-upgrader and postgresql

With the enabling of upgrades to Ubuntu 18.04 from Ubuntu 16.04 I've
been reminded of postgresql being in the blacklist of packages to
remove. I'm wondering if having this in the blacklist is still relevant.

Bug 1787349[1] is a recent report of the upgrade being blocked because
of postgresql being in the blacklist and bug 871893[2] contains the
historical information on why it was added.

Postfix 3.3.1 - Warning: mysql: ...... unused parameter: user

I upgraded to Postfix 3.3.1 from 2.x.x two days ago. I keep seeing the
following warnings:

This is repeated for the other files: and

I don't see any warnings for the file: even though it is
similiar to the above files.

I looked in the documentation (man pages and HTML readme files) and can't
find the answer. I have been using this setup since 2009 without a problem.
Is there a new database paradigm (connection style/template/method) that we
should switch too?

The documentation has not changed.

ideas about logging during the initramfs

I'd love to make logging during early boot not require everyone
to happen to get the `console=` entries ordered correctly on the
kernel command line. Inevitably we always get it wrong or the ordering
of the `console=` lines on a pre-baked works great for some people
but not for others. What if there was a way to get those early startup
systemd unit messages on all `console=` entries? Maybe there is.

I've got some code that I think could help with this. We basically configure
the journal in the initramfs to log all messages at 'info' level and above
to kmsg.

i'm making an attempt to switch from trinity desktop environment to

when i select plasma at the login screen, all seems to go well but for the
appearance not of plasma but of a black screen with a mouse cursor. no
clicking of either button produces anything, and the only escape is
ant-f1, login, and rebooting from there.

i'd guess it's a tiny configuration issue, but i have no idea what it is.

problem when move https site to 2.4 from 2.2 Apache

Encountered problems moving web sites from Apache 2.2 to 2.4 for https

When moving web sites from an Apache 2.2 environment to to 2.4 the ones that are .html and self written .php seem to work fine via both http and https

When moving Wordpress sites to 2.4, they work fine via http, but go into endless redirects when accessed via https

Has anyone encountered this problem?

Have done some googling, switched back and forth between php-fpm and mod_php, removed .htaccess redirects, turned off plugins, etc. Nothing seems to remedy it so far.

Trouble installing 18.04 server dual boot on laptop

Trying to duplicate the vm host server at work on my laptop. I’m having the following troubles:

The disk is partitioned using gpt partition tables and has a fresh install of windows 10 that created multiple partitions for windows use and left about 36gb or unused free space. I have since created 2 additional partitions in the remaining free space - an ext4 partition to be used as /, and a 16mb swap partition because the ubuntu installer insists that A swap partition exists but seems to care less about if it’s big enough to do a damn bit of good should it be needed.

HP printer not discovered

Thank you for reading this.

I normally use HP setup to discover my Ethernet connected printer,
however, my ISP has supplied me with a new modem and this is causing me
troubles and the printer is not discovered.

This may be due to existing firewall settings blocking the required
ports. When you are in a trusted network environment, you may open the
ports for network services like mdns and slp in the firewall. For

Global menu in GTK applications does not work

Hi guys. I'm having a rather curious problem with KDE Neon that does not
happen to me in ArchLinux, for example. Applications like Firefox,
Thunderbird or LibreOffice show me the global menu, however, others like
GIMP or Inkscape do not. But, if I run GIMP or Inkscape in the terminal,
if they show the global menu ..

If I put the file .profile, .bash or .zshrc the command: export
GTK_MODULES = "appmenu-gtk-module" the variable is exported without
problems, but for more than restart, the same thing keeps happening to me.

Any idea what is happening?

Sending mail from CentOS7 VM to FX ApeosPort-IV C4475 problem

Hi Folks

I'm a long term Linux user but have never used CUPS until this week. I'm trying to print from a CentOS7 VM to a Fuji Xerox ApeosPort-IV C4475 printer which requires a user name to be specified but no password.

CUPS reports jobs are complete but nothing appears at the printer.

This is what I've tried:

1. I downloaded the linux printer driver from the Fuji Xerox website and installed it and its accompanying printer utility.

2. I've followed various guides for setting up the printer in CUPS as an LPR connection as that is what my Windows machine uses.

Proxy rendering of 4K

Hi everyone.

I have used cinelerra for several years and love the application, so
thanks to all for the hard work.

I recently started to edit 4K footage from a Canon 1DX Mk 2. This is
obviously very slow even with a six core processor. So I am required to
use proxy files to speed things up. This worked with fedora 28. However
I have changed to Centos 7.5 and now have an issue, the proxy files
when dropped into the viewer are very small only taking up a small part
of the window. 
I cannot find a way to resize these to fill the viewer window.

memory caching with Apache 2.4

I am finally upgrading an Apache 2.2 server to 2.4 and caching has
changed.  The Apache server is used in a confined area and is not on the
web.  I was previously using mod_mem_cache to cache in memory responses
from my custom back-end tile server module which serves up tiles of data
from a larger "black box" file.  I've been reading up on the 2.4
mod_cache, mod_cache_socache, and mod_cache_disk but don't see anything
equivalent to the old 2.2  mod_mem_cache where I could allocate a
certain amount of RAM for the result of URL requests.  I don't want a
disk cache.  I want a memory cache

TLS 1.3 and openSSL 1.1.1 support

TLS 1.3 RFC has 'shipped':  RFC 8446.  Don't yet know all that will have
to be updated to support it, but I am working on openSSL 1.1.1 beta
which is available in the Fedora 29 beta.  The openSSL team is looking
at one more beta release (I had challenges with ED25519 certs, I will
soon have an Internet Draft out on them).

So general heads up.  TLS 1.3 is claimed to be the cat's meow for
security (I see it as a kitchen sink).  There will be questions asking
for when it will be available (wait until they start thinking about
creating EDDSA pkis).

Requiring Launchpad 2FA from Ubuntu uploaders

Launchpad 2FA is currently opt-in for everyone. However, it has been
mandatory for Canonical employees for a number of years now. Details are
documented here:

TOTP and HOTP are supported, so this works with hardware authenticators
such as Yubikeys as well as smartphone apps like OTP Authenticator (from

burden, so we are inclined to implement this as a requirement for all
Ubuntu uploaders[2].

Is there a way to change that ? I am using CentOS 7.5 x86 with a very nice
processor extra cores available and plenty of memory. There is no reason
the "other" cores cannot keep the desktop going.



grub2 - add NVME to boot from - how?

hi guys,

I thought I should ask before I start fiddling and break something - can
we tell grub2 to add nvme device as an option to boot from?

And if yes then what do tell grub?

many thanks, L.

I have a problem with sending emails and I of course try dig.

How do I enable HTTP or HTTPS Redirection on my Apache HTTP servers to my Blogger and Wordpress blogs?

Good morning from Singapore,

How do I enable HTTP or HTTPS Redirection on my Apache HTTP servers to my Blogger and Wordpress blogs?

What entries should I add to my httpd.conf?

Previously I tried to add CNAME records to my DNS server but I have been advised that this is not the correct solution.

Please advise.

Thank you very much.

poppler soname bump in rawhide


I'm going to rebase poppler in rawhide to poppler-0.67.0 now.

There are several API changes and soname bump of the base library*.

I've checked all packages which depend on the* and have
backported/prepared fixes to reflect poppler's API changes.

Unfortunately, libreoffice does not build currently (#1615616).

Could somebody check my Postscreen setup?

Hi all,

I'm trying out Postscreen after having used Postgrey for some time.  The
reason for the switch is that Postgrey can cause emails from Google etc.
to take a long time to come through due to the large number of IP
addresses they use (and I don't want to whitelist the GMail addresses).

Here's the changes I've made, they're all default from the manual, and I
include the Postscreen logs, I was expecting more, but had been
receiving emails from the same GMail address so it was possibly already
whitelisted.  Note:  These are only the changes I've made.

Is anyone on here using apt-cacher?

There's a chronic problem where AC cannot bind to the port it wants to
use (3142) and I am currently having this problem.

I used to use AC about 3 years ago when I had the same problem and gave
it up.  Looks like I may have to give it up again.

It appears that AC will run the first time you install it.  And it did
that for me.  But after rebooting my server it always comes up with:

Unable to bind socket (port 3142)

I've googled this and people have had this problem since 2009, but I haven't found a solution yet.

No, no one is using or LISTENing on t

bounced messages

I received a note from the list manager complaining that our server
has rejected an unconscionable number of message.
Has there been some configuration change of the mailing list recently?

There are reasons for the rejections: our SPAM filter.
1. The filter found one set of messages being sent from a blocklisted
site (, and rejected the messages.
2. The filter uses a greylist to decide about the validity if a sender
(nearly 2/3 of spam is rejected this way).


hey all. i'm trying to figure out how to program in python and i wanted to find out if the kate text editor supports python 3. i've been reading a manual on python programming and it states some info about running IDLE and when i run the terminal command for it, it goes nowhere.

am i able to just open kate, do some coding, save it as a python file with the .py extension and then run it?

i start school next month and i want to be ahead of the game as much as possible.

how to track downstream these days

Hi list,

how does one track downstream packages these days?

Self Introduction: filbranden

Hi everyone!

I'm a new packager in Fedora project, so I'd like to introduce myself.
My name is Filipe. I currently live in California, though I'm
originally from Brazil. I have been using Fedora and other distros in
that family for close to 20 years now, for fun and profit, starting
with Red Hat Linux 6 (not RHEL.) I remember installing Fedora Core 2
on my desktop and I think I attempted to upgrade it to FC4 using yum.
Oh good times!

I've been an active contributor to the systemd project upstream and
I'm joining as a co-maintainer of systemd package in Fedora.

Postfix and getmail, how to tell postfix to receive only specific adresses of a virtual domain?

Hi to all,

my first post, as a list newbie :-)

I'm using postfix, along with dovecot, for about two years now, on my VPS.

what is the rationale for not allowing LOCK TABLES in a stored procedure

Hello, I have read through several pages of the reference manual, and
I've seen several instances where it is stated that LOCK TABLES (and
UNLOCK TABLES) is not allowed in a stored procedure, but so far, I
haven't found an explanation as to *why* that is. Could someone please
enlighten me?

You can now test/use the crypto policy of future Fedora releases

The current [0] crypto-policies in Rawhide contain additional policy
named as NEXT. You can switch the system to it as root via command:

update-crypto-policies --set NEXT

The difference to the current DEFAULT policy is that TLS versions 1.0
and 1.1 are disabled and the minimum key length of RSA keys and minimum
length of DH parameters are 2048 bits.

There is also a FUTURE policy which in addition to this limits also the
symmetric crypto key length to minimum of 256 bits.

Static web photo gallery generator wanted

I'm looking for a simple, efficient way to generate an HTML gallery
from a hierarchy of jpeg images.

I.e. I have a directory ~/pictures which contains quite a deep
hierarchy of sub-directories oranising my pictures organised as I
want them. It's quite big, something like 30 thousand images which
total something over 50Gb.

I want a way to generate a web gallery with much smaller iamage files
(e.g. maximum image size something like 1024x1024) in a hierarchy
with simple HTML (or whatever) to make it navigable with a web

KDE 5 Plasma

Hello All,

I am unable to access https websites with KDE 5 Plasma. I know it's a

Perl dependencies of KDE libraries

Hi Rex,

As part of my Flaptak efforts, I've been looking what libraries and other
packages are used by our most popular applications and I noticed that all
applications using KDE libraries are pulling in a pile of perl packages. As
far as I can tell, this is only because of the two scripts:

/usr/share/kf5/kjs/create_hash_table (kf5-kconfigwidgets)
/usr/bin/preparetips5 (kf5-kjs)

Are there other reasons that Perl is needed? What if we moved the scripts
to the corresponding -devel packages? They seem to be developer focused and
not needed at application run time.

Blocking spammers who spoof From: addresses from my domain

Hi all,

A silly question, I did have a look around but I'm just struggling to
find the appropriate keywords to get a definitive answer.

We have a problem where some smart-arse spammers/phishers are spoofing
the From address, specifying our domain as their from address. In one
case, the person in question uses my personal address in the From, To
and Return-Path.

I got this strange problem with postfix 3.1.0.
I got this one server that doesn't get all the mails, queued for it. Some mails gets the error in subject.
And if I do a tcpdump on the tcp stream I see this everytime:
