Add your tasks to the Idea page for GCI

Hi everyone,

I have added few tasks on the GCI page and would like to ask other
interested mentors to add their ideas to the idea page.

I have also reused some of the ideas from the last year GCI. We need
minimum 25 tasks for participation before the date 21st October so that
time for doing the required things for applying as an organization is
reserved. More ideas can be added later.

Any sort of task can be added to the idea page if they are doable by
students of age group 13-17.

Question regarding Postfix virtual domains and SPF

Hi,

I have two questions regarding using SPF when I am using Postfix with virtual domain hosting.

I currently have an SPF record in my DNS:

example.com TXT “v=spf1 ip4:1.2.3.4/32 ip6:1:2:3::4/128 ?all”

I virtually host a domain (in this example case, example.com), that is set to forward mail to recipients on Gmail.

Cockpit depends on NetworkManager.

Hi,

so recently I managed to destroy[1] two production servers by removing what
I saw as useless web-config utility. Apparently Cockpit depends on
NetworkManager, which nobody would expect and is easily overlooked.

PLEASE FIX

gdevilspie on mate

I just read about gdevilspie on this list the other day and downloaded it for my mate desktop. Although it installed, it complains that python-wnck is not installed.

Does anyone know if it is supposed to work on mate? I would have expected it to install python-wnck as a requirement if not already installed?

Software updater snuck in a package that is unwanted

How do I remove a package that was snuck in?

The Software updater apparently installed a package that was listed as
"Automatically install upgrades" or something like that, because I did
not know how to permanently block it.

Synaptic shows it (I think) as unattended upgrades", with the
description "automatic installation of security upgrades".

Apparently, this trojan horse has the effect that, to remove it, so as
to revert to manually performing upgrades (which is as it should be),
I have to wreck the system, by removing the desktop system and the
operating system core.

So, how do I remove

Accidentally disabling units with systemd scriptlets

Hey folks,

I recently did a large re-write of a specfile in order to provide a
Python 3 version and to make it easier to maintain.

Prior to this re-write the specfile produced a number of subpackages
that each provided a service file (fedmsg-hub, fedmsg-relay, ...). In
my re-write I had the python2-fedmsg sub-package provide all these
packages. There weren't any systemd scriptlets, either, so I added
those.

The problem is that now when you upgrade, the service is disabled even
if you have it enabled before the upgrade.

MySQL Community Server 5.6.38 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Server 5.6.38, a new version of the popular Open Source
Database Management System, has been released. MySQL 5.6.38 is
recommended for use on production systems.

For an overview of what's new in MySQL 5.6, please see

<a href="http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-nutshell.html" title="http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-nutshell.html">http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-nutshell.html</a>

Starting with 5.6.11, Microsoft Windows packages for MySQL 5.6
are available both as a "full" installer and as a "web" installer.
The full installer is significantly larger and comes bundled with
the latest software releases available.

Self-Generating Postfix Key & Cert?

Anyone have handy the openssl commands to generate my own key and cert
for Postfix?

What is the upper limit allowed for smtp_line_length_limit?

Yes, I understand that setting smtp_line_length_limit above 998 is not
recommend.

I agree that for most Postfix installations, where mail is relayed to
the outside world, this recommendation is your best bet for email
deliverability because lines longer than 1000 violates RFC 5321. I
totally agree with this if your Postfix installation is sending outbound
email.

I manage several gateway mail servers that only accept inbound email and
deliver to internal servers. Lately we've been seeing more and more
DKIM signed messages. Most make it though these gateway servers without
issue.

OpenDKIM SOCK path on Debian Jessie

Hi Friends,

I've set on (Debian Jessie, Posfix 2.11.3-1, Opendkim 2.9.2-2)
/etc/default/opendkim:

SOCKET="local:/var/spool/postfix/var/run/opendkim/opendkim.sock"

and on /etc/postfix/main.cf:

smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/opendkim/opendkim.sock
non_smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/opendkim/opendkim.sock

(on opendkim "local" and on posfix "unix" socket)

Apparently all works fine:

Python bindings using cppyy (was: An update on Python bindings)

As promised, here is an interim update on the investigation into the
use of cppyy-based bindings for KF5 (and more...) instead of SIP-based
bindings.

The first thing is that the underlying technology of cppyy,
cling/ROOT, has been under development at CERN for quite a while. It
directly reads regular C++ files (there is no intermediate format like
SIP).

The bindings it generates from Python to C++ seem far more complete
and automatic than SIP.

header_checks, filtering and loops

www subdomain still broken

Hi,

what's the deal with <a href="http://www.php.net/debug_print_backtrace" title="http://www.php.net/debug_print_backtrace">http://www.php.net/debug_print_backtrace</a> ? Looks like
it's not loading css files. it works without www.
(it's a total nuisance because <a href="http://www.php.net" title="www.php.net">www.php.net</a> is hardcoded into a Netbeans
plugin that I use a zillion times a day, and I have to manually edit the
www. out every time I reference your documentation.)

EDB: a cross platform x86/x86-64 debugger - Status in Fedora

Hi,

I stumbled upon EDB [1] the other day and it looks fairly close to what
I've been looking for for a while now. It seems the Fedora package is
about 5 years out of date so I submitted a PR [2] for it. There's also a
COPR build of that branch [3] in case anyone wants to try it.

n00b To The Mechanics

I've run Linux on all my machines for 18 years, but have never needed to
understand the workings of email, as I've always used shared hosting and
cPanel.  Now I'm setting up my own server and I'd like to understand the
actual mechanics of email.

I've read several Postfix docs including
<a href="http://www.postfix.org/OVERVIEW.html" title="http://www.postfix.org/OVERVIEW.html">http://www.postfix.org/OVERVIEW.html</a> and still don't get it.

It seems that Postfix is only an SMTP server;  it only listens on 25. 
If I understand, it listens on 25 for incoming mail, processes it, then
saves it in a flat file.

- If someone sends me an email to ... at example1 dot com,  example1.com
resolves to

Do I need Epoch: for downgrades in rawhide?

Hi all,

if I want to downgrade a package in rawhide only (I only pushed the
update to rawhide), do I need to add an Epoch?

background:
I updated librealsense to librealsense2 and afterwards realized that the
new library is a major rewrite that does not support older camera
models. After consulting with upstream, I came to the conclusion that we
should stay with version 1 for the librealsense package and submit
librealsense2 as a separate package. I think Debian is planning to do
the same thing.

denyhosts-2.9-4.el7 not resync'ing

Everyone,

It is apparent that the epel version of denyhosts on Centos 7 which is
denyhosts-2.9-4.el7.noarch does not resynch with :

SYNC_SERVER = <a href="http://xmlrpc.denyhosts.net:9911" title="http://xmlrpc.denyhosts.net:9911">http://xmlrpc.denyhosts.net:9911</a>

According to :

the problem is related to a version update problem in the epel
repositories.

I submitted a bugzilla report :

Updates for Firefox 57 beta

Hello,

Now that FESCo has ruled that "firefox 57beta is removed from f25/f26
updates-testing but stays in f27/rawhide", could we at least keep
getting new builds in koji for f25/f26? Judging by the feedback in
bodhi, the various threads here, rhbz and FESCo tickets, there is a
number of users who don't mind sticking with Firefox 57. Going back to
v56 would entail undoing a number of changes and dealing with possible
breakages, only to repeat the whole process in about a month.

Strange issue with reject_unverified_recipient (LMTP/Dovecot)

Hello,

I've been struggling with this for about a week now.
In smtpd_recipient_restrictions I have reject_unverified_recipient.
For recipient address verification I'm using Dovecot's LMTP.
Everything is working as expected when address_verify_negative_cache =
yes - unknown recipients are rejected with 550 (NOQUEUE: reject), for
known the mail is delivered.

The problem I have is when I set address_verify_negative_cache = no.
It goes like this:

- Sender connects to Postfix
+ Postfix is checking address with Dovecot
+ Dovecot responds (almost instantly) with 550 5.1.1 User doesn't exist;

reverting to PHP 5.x

I remember seeing a thread go by that said how to revert a 16.04
LTS to use PHP 5.x rather than 7.x

Can anybody give me a link?

setting the network interface

I do remember that some time ago Ubuntu stopped using a static
resolv.conf but I just can't figure out how to set it up now.
I read the manual and it suggests using pre-up and ethtool but I
remember that there is a way of defining the interface by editing
a file, just can't figure out which one.

systemctl reboot -- server not accessible after reboot

Hi,

Such a simple problem, but I can't figure out the cause.
Supermicro server with a Xeon E3-1200 cpu.
1U entry level item.

Using CentOS 7

from ~$root --- systemctl reboot

Server disconnects my ssh connection and never comes back up.
Go to the server and the power is on but the server is not accessible by ssh.
When I connect a monitor and keyboard --- non-responsive.

Gnome replaces Unity

I understand that in 17.10 Gnome is going to replace Unity.

When Unity was introduced I stuck wiith Gnome and eventually ended up with
Ubuntu-mate.

So, my question is: would people advise moving back from Ubuntu-mate to the
main Gnome-based distribution? I'm not sure I see the point of Mate
post-17.10, but maybe there is some benefit in sticking with it (?). Or is
it all purely cosmetic?

Artful font hinting problems

Hi,

Yesterday I took the plunge and (early) upgraded to Artful to discover
horrible font hinting issues. This was resolved by upgrading
libfreetype 2.8.0 to 2.8.1 from Michael Marley's PPA. This solved
normal font hinting but left bold fonts unhinted and ugly.

Then Plasma 5.11 came by and it solved hinting of the bold window
title font, but left all other bold fonts unhinted.

I'm using Ubuntu 9 for normal and Ubuntu Bold 9 for window title.

The attached picture shows current state of affairs best. Window title
font is ok, normal font is ok but bold path font is unhinted.

Building Qt with kdesrc-build

Hi all,

I'm trying to build Qt using kdesrc-build on Debian Stretch.  I've
successfully built a number of KDE modules but now I've come up
against plasma-workspace's dependency on Qt >= 5.9.0 which Stretch
doesn't provide.

I've followed the instructions here

<a href="https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-features.html" title="https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-features.html">https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-featur...</a>

but unfortunately a number of Qt packages fail to build as
kdesrc-build expects a CMakeLists.txt file:

rah@myrtle:~/proj/plasma-mobile/kdesrc$ grep "Error" $( ls -1rt src/log/latest/*/cmake.log | tail -n 3 )

Kubuntu Social Media

Hi all, one of the things briefly discussed today in the BBB meeting
was our use of social media. We had a bit of a list of accounts and
who has accounts, but it was hidden in the middle of the Release
Management page.

That has now been moved to its own top-level Phabricator page at:
<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/w/kubuntu/social-media/" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/w/kubuntu/social-media/">https://phabricator.kde.org/w/kubuntu/social-media/</a>

Please fix if there is anything incorrect, and add places that we
should be informing of upcoming events, calls for testers and other
announcements.

sidekiq receives SIGHUP when started via ssh -t

Hi,

I have a couple of ideas how to fix it, but I'm trying to figure out
what's going on first. I mainly start this program (sidekiq) on Debian
systems, and it might be my first time running it under CentOS, so my
conjecture is that it has to do with differences between
distributions...

Now then, when I run it this way:

ssh <a href="mailto: ... at example dot com"> ... at example dot com</a> '. ~/.bash_profile && rvm 2.3.1@gemset1 && cd
path/to/site && bundle exec sidekiq -C config/sidekiq.yml -d -L

it daemonizes itself and stays running.

similarly to:

xxx --disk xxx --network bridge=br0 --graphics none --autostart
--extra-args "console=ttyS0 ks=xxx" --rng /dev/urandom

Those guests simply hang until I use "virsh console <guest>", at which

Re: Is there interest in participating in Google Code-in this year?

Hi,

Kopete has tasks that can be done by GCI candidates.

Yes, people are busy. Other new members of KDE should take the initiatives
for their projects and participate to mentor GCI students. It's a great way
to get potential enthusiastic contributors for your projects.

It takes effort to be mentor but we always have experienced members to help
us when lost on something :)

If you can mentor and have time, add your proposal here which you are
willing to mentor.

Assistance with file + ldap auth config moving from httpd 2.2 to 2.4

Hi,

    I am trying to move a web application from httpd 2.2 to httpd 2.4 ,

    AuthUserFile /etc/hobbit/hobbitpasswd
    AuthGroupFile /etc/hobbit/hobbitgroup
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Hobbit user"

    AuthBasicProvider file ldap

NONE
    AuthLDAPBindDN " ... at arsyslan dot es"

Yum branding

Howdy,

I found out that there is new Red Hat branding in yum.

1. Get newest yum.
2. Move all repos to different location (probably enable=0 also would
work - not tested), and disable any other repo (if there is repo enabled
from another sources/plugin).
3. Try to update the system.

One-liner: "sudo yum update yum -y && mkdir repos && sudo mv
/etc/yum.repos.d/* repos/. && sudo yum update"

Vagrant (libvirt) oneliner:

" vagrant init centos/7 && vagrant up --provider=libvirt && vagrant ssh
-c 'sudo yum update yum -y && mkdir repos && sudo mv /etc/yum.repos.d/*
repos/.

Again: "Somebody knows your password" (Google)

Hi!

Google notifies me by mail that a log in attempt, with my password, has been
prevented, because of the device being unknown.

I've already had this problem some two months ago.

recommended smtp proxy script?

I'm thinking about hacking on a before queue proxy filter, but the link
to suggested perl framework at
<a href="http://www.postfix.org/SMTPD_PROXY_README.html" title="http://www.postfix.org/SMTPD_PROXY_README.html">http://www.postfix.org/SMTPD_PROXY_README.html</a> seems dead. I googled
"Bennett Todd smtp proxy", which brings mee to a git repo last updated
five years ago.

What is the current best starting point for hacking a proxy filter?

I'm running debian stretch on the mail-server, but I believe that would
be irrelevant in this case, as pulling a pre-packaged .deb would only
create extra clutter.

but I dont know where it does print out. Does it in any specific file?

Linux Skype

The new Skype Beta 5 for Linux looks OK, but doesn't work for me. Seems
to connect, but no sound, no video, so it's hard to tell.

And in a move truly worthy of their reputation, Microsoft has chosen to
make the audio and video settings available only when you have *already
started* a call. If the connection does not succeed, you have no chance
to adjust the settings.

Am I missing something, or is this the most braindead idea since the
noise-operated volume control?

Unlocking several crypto discs during boot

Hi!

I have two crypto discs in my machine: the hard drive, and an SSD, which I
want to use as a cache for the former. This means that I have to enter two
passwords at boot time, even if they are the identical.

I'd like to file a feature request. When the passwords are identical, only one
should be requested. Which package should I specify for the bug report?

Bye
Volker

Interdependent packages *must* go in the same update - a reminder (ref. nss and nspr)

There are currently separate updates for nss 3.33.0 and nspr 4.17.0 in
both Fedora 26 and 27. However, nss 3.33.0 requires nspr 4.17.0.

As a reminder, this is a violation of the Updates Policy:

<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy#Updating_inter-dependent_packages" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy#Updating_inter-dependent_packages">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy#Updating_inter-dependent_p...</a>

"When one updated package requires another (or more than one other),
the packages should be submitted together as a single update."

The problem with doing things this way is that, if the nss update
happened to be pushed stable before the nspr update (which could easily
happen due to human error, network issues etc.

Testing the RC Friday or Saturday through release day

Hi folks, the release of Artful approaches on October 19th [1], next
Thursday. Between now and Saturday [2] the Release Candidate ISOs will
be spun. Please help us really test it, on "bare metal" - real
computers - if possible. VM testing is better than nothing though!

In particular, actual 32-bit machines would be very valuable to the
viability of our i386 ISOs.

PDFShuffler

If you use PDFs, this little program is golden.

   sudo apt-get install pdfshuffler

You get a nice GUI interface; you load in a PDF and you can then rotate
pages, re-arrange pages, remove pages, add pages in from other PDFs...
magic.

Not so great for scripting. For that you want the pdf* suite of command
line programs especially pdftk, but pdfshuffler is really useful for
those times when you need a quick fix.

Is there interest in participating in Google Code-in this year?

Hello folks, when I've written about GCi before this, I got few to no
replies. My feeling is that previous enthusiastic mentors are without
the energy and time to participate this year.

Org applications are open, but unless I hear a swell of enthusiasm
here, I'm inclined to not apply.

Thoughts?

Kernel crash

Hi everyone,

I updated the kernel from 3.10.0-514.16.1.el7.x86_64
to 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64 . While I was following these steps
<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless/Broadcom" title="https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless/Broadcom">https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless/Broadcom</a> (I knew that I
needed to compile again everything) in order to activate WIFI, the laptop
crashed doing

# depmod -a
# modprobe wl

Noting that I replaced (naively) # depmod $(uname -r) from the guide
(stupid mistake, I use tcsh and the command above didn't work; that's why
the replacement).

After the crash, I had to manually shutdown the laptop.
