no return nor action of program

Dear list,

I am using an 64bit ArchLinux with gcc 6.3.1 and compiled apache 2.4.25.
This is done as part of the apache-tools package from AUR [0].
As you can see we apply a patch for openssl1.1, since AL switched to
that version recently.

question about shared samba directory file permissions..

im trying to set up a shared samba directory for users to use on centos
7, but whenever I create a file from the samba client to the samba server,
the owner of the file ends up being the user the share is mounted up as..
on the server (server1),

comment = samba share
path = /samba/
read only = No
valid users = @samba
write list = @samba
force group = +samba
create mask = 0770
browseable = yes

[root@server1 ~]# grep samba /etc/group

uid=2010(user2) gid=2010(user2) groups=2010(user2),6666(samba

CBS Outage : ppc64/ppc64le builders in offline mode


As discussed in CBS meeting today
(<a href="" title=""></a>),
and also reflected on <a href="" title=""></a> , we currently suffer
from a hardware issue that impacts our connectivity to some nodes,
including the ppc64/ppc64le builders.

That means that SIG people willing to build against/for those arches
will not be able to see their build jobs/tasks running as long as
connectivity isn't restored (and no ETA yet)
Worth noting that those builders are disabled at the koji level

Reject any sender having the word "welcome" in the email address.


I would like to block any sender having the word "welcome" in the email

I know this can be done with header_checks, I just need the syntax to add
this rule.

Precision problem due to GCC7?

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

I'm getting ctest failure only on F26 (and rawhide) i386, while on F25
all it's working fine.
Can a precision problem be introduced in Eigen3 with the passage from
GCC6 to GCC7?
Is it possible to set up a F26 mock chroot using GCC6 instead of GCC7?

restore from Mysql Administrator

I have an SQL file from a Mysql Administrator backup. Database and tables are
encoded in latin1, but the sql file is encoded in utf-8. Fine so far.

However, some varchars have been hexdumped, and strings have been converted to
utf-8 before these hexdumps.

Apache 2.2.32 request header parsing and RFC7230 compliance

RFC7230 section 3.2.6 (<a href="" title=""></a> ) defines a HTTP header field as:

header-field = field-name ":" OWS field-value OWS
field-name = token
token = 1*tchar
tchar = "!" / "#" / "$" / "%" / "&" / "'" / "*"
/ "+" / "-" / "." / "^" / "_" / "`" / "|" / "~"
; any VCHAR, except delimiters

I believe Apache 2.2.32 fails to comply with the above definition for a single character request header.

Apache HTTP Server - 2.4.15-mod_prefork module

not installed, cannot see it in modules folder.

Please help.

License field in spec file, spdx compliance

I was trying today to prepare a single spec file for both Fedora and OpenSuse and hit a small issue on the License field.
Fedora requires license to be shortened as listed in <a href="" title=""></a>
While OpenSuse requires license to be shortened as listed in <a href="" title=""></a>

Being spdx a collaborative project within Linux foundation, I think there may be value in aligning fedora licensing short names with spdx list.
I was going to open bugzilla to track it, then decided to open the discussion here first.
Any thought?

ppc64/ppc64le dynamic linker or tcmalloc problem

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

In Rawhide on ppc64 or ppc64le, ‘qemu-system-ppc64 -help’ segfaults in
the dynamic linker. As far as I can tell, it's something to do with
ifuncs, the _ZdlPvm symbol, C++ sized-delete(?), and tcmalloc.

The system in general works fine - ie. binaries aren't all

Anyway it's very deep in the dynamic linker and the emulated system
I'm using is very very slow which makes debugging painful. Can a
compiler expert take a look?

Over the last week or so I have noticed that chrome fails to load pages
- in fact even the setup pages do not load.

Blow away the ~/.config/google-chrome/ files and restart

Seems to work for a little while - then stops again - no other pages load.

I have done the cleanup of the .config/google-chrome directory and then
with the fresh session tried both with my google account and without any
account - same result.

I have just done an update in the hope it may fix things so now running

Suggestion/Question about HTTP & HTTPS configurations


I am a user of Apache in the sense that I install it, configure it and run
it to host sites...I'm hoping this is the correct list to send this to.

Anyway, I recently did my first "from scratch" Apache install, build and
configuration in a cloud server (I had always used cPanel & WHM before).

My suggestion is that Apache should "assume" that port 80 for HTTP and port
443 for HTTPS and that they both serve the same content.

I'm not suggesting people shouldn't be able to customize it, but adding
duplicate and redundant directives for each Virtual Host for HTTP and HTTPS
seems unneeded.

I just installed MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.7 on RHEL 6.8 to replace an aging 5.1 system running on RHEL 5. We run mysqld_multi with multiple instances, each database on its own TCP Port 33xx. I'm having trouble creating a database on the new server in a multi environment.

Can anyone provide a simple example of how to edit /etc/my.cnf file and command line steps necessary for creating a new database running on, for example, port 3311?

Thanks in advance.


dnf bodhi plugin


I had an idea for a summer internship project, but I wanted to ask my
fellow Fedora devs if something like this already exists so it doesn't
get created as a duplicate project.

The idea is to create a dnf plugin that would allow you to do this:

$ sudo dnf upgrade FEDORA-2017-30604deb62

That update is a Gnome update, and likely has packages in it that you
don't use, but others that you do.

mouse / keyboard input oddity

Since upgrading to Ubuntu Mate 17.04 I've experienced a slightly irritating
problem. After a short period of inactivity (not sure how long but <30
mins), when I return to the PC a mouse click or a single key press will not
achieve anything. Keyboard input is accepted on the second key press, and
mouse clicks are accepted only after I have pressed a key on the keyboard.
Ctrl-F (say) seems to work immediately, however.

Has anyone else experienced this? And is there a simple solution?

There is a similar situation when I try to log in. I have it set so that I
can log in without a password.

domain bl

I just added

smtpd_sender_restrictions =
[...further checks...]

This works fine. But if mail is sent from an ip which was already in the
postscreen cache database before activating the DBL check, the DBL check
is skipped, although this DBL check is made at the next hop AFAIUI.
Removing the ip from the cache makes the DBL check work again for that
particular ip.

Is this behaviour correct or did I make a config error somewhere?

Suggested deadline for 17.10 installer slideshow updates


Last cycle, we've had a fair number of pretty late slideshow updates,
and I had to do some amounts of manual translation mangling to fix
issues. I'd like to avoid that this cycle, and for future cycles, too.

Please see this as a reminder that it's a good idea to update the
desktop installer slideshows early (and now is a great time to do
that!), and often. I will try to track down a new "mascot" image for
17.10 right away.

I would like to suggest we also collectively attempt to stick to a
"stricter" schedule for slideshow updates.

Why my host tekes relay mail??


mydomain =
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain,
mail.$mydomain, www.$mydomain, ftp.$mydomain
relay_domains = $mydestination

I'm wondering why after telnet connection to port 25 the host accepts
any `RCPT TO:' addresses ending with `' (for example:
` ... at 1 dot') and then tries to forward it. I thought
that only those explicitly listed above would be accepted. Which
parameter may be missing / responsible for it? How can I debug or change it?

Thanks a lot!

system slowdown

I have a CentOS 6 system that has suddenly starting significantly
slowing down. It runs a django app with an Apache server and MySQL
server. There is plenty of disk space and no process seems to be
hogging the memory or CPU. But operations that used to take 5 minutes
are now taking hours and hours.

Coinciding with this slow down I see these messages in

email from this system, although for a change I do have remote access
via 2 VPN hops):

Also, the 4.10 kernel is not the kernel out of the box. In a

How do you maintain all of these custom kernels (i.e. is a different

Centos 7 and MAC address munging

Odd situation: I've mentioned before that I have several users for whom I
have to spoof the MAC address, due to a software license. Now, I've got
net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0 on the grub2 command line, and I've got the
spoofed MAC address in /etc/sysconfig/network-sctipts/ifcfg-eth0.

But he had a serious problem - X froze, and he thought to reboot, rather
than call me. It came up with the actual MAC.

Best practices for copying lots of files machine-to-machine

An entire filesystem (~180g) needs to be copied from one local linux
machine to another. Since both systems are on the same local subnet,
there's no need for encryption.

I've done this sort of thing before a few times in the past in different
ways, but wanted to get input from others on what's worked best for them.

One consideration is that the source filesystem contains quite a few
hardlinks and symlinks and of course I want to preserve these, and
preserve all timestamps and ownerships and permissions as well.

Ok to put private network in mynetworks?


I run a docker container on my server.

SSL Installation with certbot; problems

Hello all,

Firstly, I'm a bit of a beginner so please be as patient as you can.

I set up a practice website that sent data collected from a form to a
database. It worked.

I then tried to install an SSL certificate for better security.
Unfortunately it didn't work (when typing URL my browser couldn't open the
page). I then discovered certbot and used this to attempt to install an SSL
certificate. It doesn't work now. As I didn't make the changes myself I
can't go back and undo them.

Thank you :)

audio and realtime SIG

I remember there has been some interest in creating an audio related SIG
a few years ago and I'd like to know if anything has come out of that.
Related to that, I wonder if there is a realtime related SIG. From a
first quick search over the wiki pages there does not seem to be such a

Bazel test cases timing out on CentOS 7.


I have observed that certain Bazel test cases from the test suite are
timing out on CentOS 7 (kernel version 3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64). For example,
I tried bazel_coverage_test (using command bazel test
//src/test/shell/bazel:bazel_coverage_test) and observed that it just
hangs. I tried tracing it using strace (log attached).

This seems to be CentOS specific behavior as I did not observe this on
Ubuntu 16.04.

Has anybody observed this? Is this a regression as far as CentOS is


Help needed on using python script from Apache Rewrite configuration


I have Server version: Apache/2.2.31 (Unix) and trying to pass few arguments from Apache rewrite conf file to Python (version 2.6) script.

Also, I want to process the python output in rewrite configuration file.

Please let me know, how can I pass variables to python script and retrieve the output in rewrite configuration file.
I have loaded mod_python-3.3.1-16.el6.x86_64 and updated the httpd.conf file with proper path.

I have tried below steps just to verify, but no luck :
RewriteEngine On

RewriteMap d2u "prg:/opt/httpd/custom.d/"

C6 Module Keys

As part of testing an alternative module I saved the original module and
copied the test one in.

File system only mounts with gparted

I just updated my Xubuntu 16.04.2 to the latest kernel et al, and when
I rebooted, one of my drives did not mount.

What's Next

OK, AMD has announced it's new line of server and desktop processors.
What level of CentOS has been tested on them? OK then, when will CentOS
be tested on them? Or do we wait for Red Hat?

Deprecated net-tools? Mass bug filing?


It was pointed out on IRC to me tonight that there are actually a
reasonable number of packages that still depend on net-tools[0].

This has been deprecated for a long time now and we really should
strive to have everything use iproute2 instead so that there is no
longer a need to keep the deprecated package about, other than if
someone explicitly really wants netstat or ifconfig for some reason.

Is the best way to handle this a mass bug filing?

If we can at least start cutting down this list in the FC27 cycle I
think it would be a worthy effort.

Re: kde neon, last update: packages have been kept back:

You are using Kubuntu ppas with KDE Neon. The ppa packages are causing conflicts with Neon's packages. 
You'll need to remove the Kubuntu ppas from your KDE Neon system to fix this. They are completely unnecessary.

CentOS 7 and sound


I have a need to get CentOS 7 sound working on a console only machine. X is
not running.

Currently when I try aplay:
aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect:
Connection refused

aplay: main:786: audio open error: Connection refused

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 1: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC283 Analog [ALC283 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

So sound is present - I presume pulseaudio is not running as X is not

Can I run audio without X ?
