16.04: Screen-saver stopped working?


On my laptop with 16.04, screen saver won't lock the screen anymore.

According to system-settings, screen-saver should be activated after one
minute and should ask for the password. But there's simply nothing happening.

I even rebooted to make sure all servicess are started as it should be. But
this also did not help.

Any hints how to track this down?

rtc net update

Good Evening:

Now that we are on the topic of the RTC, is it possible to change the
update frequency.  I understand that a crystal controlled clock drifts a
few seconds per month.  I also heard (unofficial) that routers,
computers, tablets, phones, etc. do a net update daily.  Shouldn't a
monthly update be enough, except for those few cases that more often is
necessary?  Wouldn't this reduce the traffic on the net by, say, a lot? 
Wouldn't that be a good thing?  I have never seen a prompt to vary the
update frequency.

Broken man pages in vagrant box 1710.01


In the latest vagrant box (1710.01), no man page can be found by

-V" shows nothing wrong with them.

Doing a "yum reinstall man-pages" fixes the problem, but I don't
understand why, since this "rpm -q --scripts" returns nothing for it.

How to restrict sending to certain local addresses except when sent from mail server

I have a mail server receiving internet mail for my primary domain and for a
few virtual domains. I'm having some spam issues with internet mail coming
in for address@mydomain for addresses intended for use by local
tools/scripts which are listed in /etc/aliases. Any ideas on how can I make
it that postfix accepts mail for these addressesI *only* if they were sent
by my mail server?

hosting emails at home

Hello everyone,

I have been using Postfix and Dovecot for my personal emails for years.
After being tired of reinstalling my personal mail server many times, I
am currently writing some Ansible scripts to do it automatically.

I obviously checked the other projects, and did not found anything close
to what I am looking for, so I am implementing it now.

The final goal is to have a box that once online, would setup itself, by
creating the certificates, the DKIM keys and update the appropriate DNS

This is so far what I have achieved:

transport maps lookup order


Case in question:

Self introduction

Hello people,

I've recently submitted a package to be included with Fedora, and since
I'm new on the packager block, I'm throwing in this intro ;) (als also
recommended/required by the guidelines)

The package I've sent up is NotepadQQ, a 'clone' of a well-known editor
for Windows. I'm working with Ben Rosser to get this up to Fedora
standards - <a href="" title=""></a>

I've got several years of on-my-own packaging for Debian under my belt,
maintained some packages in my own repo's.

Removing old cruft, e.g. Provides: systemd-units (was Re: What to I have to do....)

Hash: SHA256

After reading all responses in thread which is mentioned in subject I think we
need to develop some policies / procedures how to deal with old cruft, for

- - Requires: systemd-units
- - Requires: /bin/mktemp

Former has changed to systemd in guidelines X years ago (not sure when exactly,
before I did my first package which contains systemd units, so I would guess
something like 5-6 years ago).

How to coordinate the clock when dual-booting with Windows

I've installed Ubuntu into a Windows laptop. I missed the place where I
was supposed to tell the install that the clock will be kept in local time,
so switching between Linux and Windows is a pain.

Is there a way to fix this short of going back and doing it again?

Re: IPv6 Complliance

KDE (or X?) clipboard goes stupid

[kf5 5.38, plasma-workspace-5.10.5, Fedora 25]

My KDE/X clipboard goes astray sometimes. I Copy URL to clipboard from KMail,

Is there any way to reset that clipboard without restarting X or KDE? I'm not

IPv6 Complliance

Hi all!

The organization I work for requires IPv6 compatibility in all new hardware
and software we deploy.

The issue is is we are having an issue with Postfix 2.1 (as shipped with

source and use an updated release? And if so, how new of a release should
we use for IPv6 compliance?

Problems with dnscrypt's package from EPEL

Hi all,

I have installed dnscrypt's rpm package from EPEL repo under a CentOS 7.4 and using unbound as a resolver. But, I see constant timeouts and responses are very slow ... Using same config in a Debian 9 virtual machine, all works ok.

I think the problem is with dnscrypt's rpm package provided by EPEL. Anyone have seen similar problems?


map view missing from digikam in Ubuntu 16.04


I have digiKam 4.12.0 and the corresponding kipi plugins installed via
apt-get on an Ubuntu 16.04 x86_64 box. Everything works fine except, as
I only realized today, there is NO map view button in the left sidebar.
When I realized this, I also discovered that there is no
geolocation/geotagging entry anywhere in the menus.

Is anybody experiencing the same thing? Any idea of what may be
the reason, and how to fix it? I will also check on the digikam
mailing list, but I thought I'd check here first, because I
have a feeling that it may be a Ubuntu-specific issue.

How to recover with a full backup?


I'm making preparations for the case when I can no longer boot my machine, and I'm not able to recover with the GRUB recovery mode.

I have a full backup, which includes the system as well as personal data.

When I can't recover, I would install the system anew, from the Kubuntu installation ISO. Then I would unpack my backup, in some directory /backup. Now, how to get a running system again, from that? Could I just replace the top level directories with ones from the backup? Such as:

cd /
mv /bin bin.tmp
bin.tmp/mv backup/bin bin
rm -r bin.tmp

Now, how to make it bootable?

In Debian, occasionally a package needs different build-time

CAA records using PowerDNS from EPEL

PowerDNS supports CAA records beginning with version 4.0, but the pdns
package in EPEL for most recent centos versions is stuck at around
version 3.4 (3.4.11 is what I have).

Do I have no other choice but to manually compile and maintain my own
pdns installation? I prefer to avoid this but I need up-to-date

Perhaps there is a PowerDNS specific work-around? Maybe the EPEL
maintainers backported CAA record support?

Thank you for any assistance.

Proper procedure for importing TLS cert & private key for Postfix use

Recently imported files that contained the TLS certificate and the private key.

Hello all,
Sad to say, DragonPlayer seems dead-ish. It hasn't gotten any code
changes since January of this year. Kubuntu has stopped shipping it by
default, replacing it with VLC. Bugzilla tickets continue to pile up.

What's the way forward here? Should we look for a new maintainer or
admit defeat and just recommend VLC or MPV or something else?

KWin render backend and window content

XRender (+ Automatic tearing prevention)

I presume that "fullscreen repaints" corresponds to the good approach where you update an offscreen framebuffer and then swap that with the onscreen buffer just before the screen starts to repaint.

Autumn Elections 2017 are cancelled

During the Autumn 2017 Election cycle we wanted to try a new approach
in the way how Elections are organized [1]. Unfortunately, at the
beginning of the Voting period we realized the new way does not work
as expected [2] and even we tried to put some mitigation plan in place
[3], we have not succeeded. To come up with some workable solution we
have decided to cancel the currently running Autumn 2017 Elections and
start it again in early January 2018.

"testbed out of date"


I'm getting this error a lot in some test runs (like
<a href="" title=""></a>

autopkgtest [13:07:06]: ERROR: erroneous package: Test dependencies
are unsatisfiable. A common reason is that your testbed is out of date
with respect to the archive, and you need to use a current testbed or
run apt-get update or use -U.

kmod c74 broken: howto report it

hi all,

latest kmod update 20-15.el7_4.6 is broken on our systems, while
previous 20-15.el7_4.4 was working fine (and downgrading fixes the issue).

the issue is with modules from mellanox kmod rpms that are symlinked in
the weak-updates dir.

"sponsorhip for retrying dep8 tests"


many of you probably have been in a similar situation: you take your time
to fix a bug in package foo, upload it, and then the migration is blocked
because the dep8 tests of package bar failed. You go and check, and it's an
error in something completely unrelated to what you changed in your upload,
or a test infrastructure problem. You investigate the history of that test,
see a few cases of the same exact error, and trigger a retry. Then it
works, and you move on.

Except that when your upload was sponsored, you can't click retry.

Forward Proxy, RewriteRules and connection keep-alive


I am using Apache 2.4.10 as a Forward Proxy for local clients running

New "tests" namespace to share test code


While working on adding CI tests [0] using the Standard Test
Interface a need arose to have a shared git repository where tests
could be stored:

* A large number of test files makes a dist-git repository more
difficult to maintain

* Tests might follow a different branching pattern than the
dist-git repo, leading to code duplication

* Shared maintenance for tests sometimes benefits from different
access levels than the release dist-git repository

The plan is to create a new “tests” namespace in Fedora git/pagure
dedicated to storing the shared test code.

is there logstash alternative in Fedora?


I am looking for an alternative for Java logstash application (not in
Fedora) that can parse logs (e.g. httpd access.log) and collect stats about
number of occurrences for a given search pattern (basically it can e.g.
group by IP and give number of lines for each IP and then post it to some
url address). Is there anything like this currently? I am about to
implement it but wanted to make sure I won't be doing something which
already exists.

Thank you

I have just used do-release-upgrade to upgrade my system to xubuntu

It looks as this upgrade has created some oddly named files in

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 78 Dec 3 16:12 owncloud.list.distUpgrade
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 48 Dec 3 16:12 syncthing.list.distUpgrade

Can anyone tell me what these files are for?

Re: no space left on /boot

Another approach would be boot from one of the many forensic or data recovery distributions and increase the size of your boot partition at the expense of a little space in your root partition.

thanks for all the answers I got

I'm enforcing inbound TLS from my internal network with these settings:
smtpd_tls_security_level = may

smtpd_sender_restrictions =

My question is, does the following setting in apply to tls

there a way to set this to low for a particular IP or subnet, and leave
it to medium for everybody else?

could use your help.

The Fedora-associated FreeOTP project has received this pull request:

The comments and commit descriptions are almost entirely in Korean and
I don't know how to make heads or tails of them. Communication with

Is there anyone in the Fedora community that would be willing to

Mass Pull Request filing for ambiguous Python 2 requirements

Hi all,

It has been a while since the last discussion on Python packages naming
policy, i.e. using "python2" instead of just "python", in preparation
for making "python" mean Python 3. Thanks to zbyszek's effort, most of
the ambiguously named Python packages were renamed in Rawhide. That has
unblocked even more packages which use "python-" prefixed names in
requirements (which is banned by the policy [0]).

So, as planned [1], we want to start opening Pagure PRs with
automatically generated patches to fix misnamed dependencies
