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?

"Chunk exceeds message size limit"


i am running postfix 3.4.1-1 (from debian sid).

i recently noticed that mails from multiple senders (most importantly google mail)
are being rejected with:
postfix logs:
this happens regardless of the actual message size,
even a one-line plaintext message is rejected.

/etc/postfix/ has:
header_size_limit = 4096000
message_size_limit = 0

downgrading to 3.3.2 fixed the issue.

going ahead of Debian with a dfsg orig tarball


I find myself in the situation where we want to go ahead of debian for
a package (samba), but it's a dfsg tarball. Debian doesn't have it
anywhere yet, so I produced the tarball according to the exclude rules
in debian/gbp.conf.

I'm wondering, however, if some mistake happens, or something else,
and the tarball I produce has a different hash than the tarball that
Debian will eventually produce.

Correct Apache cache keys on rewritten URL's

Hello All,

I've been working on this for the past few days, attempting to find a
way to get the Apache mod_disk_cache module to properly store requests
that are rewritten. As I'm sure many of you are aware, it's fairly
common practice these days for modern CMS's to just rewrite everything
to index.php and let that handle things (so-called "pretty urls" or

Very late Fedora 30 change considered: Mono 5

CVE-2019-7443 (kauth) in kdelibs


I'm Hugo Lefeuvre, from the Debian LTS team. I am currently working on
CVE-2019-7443 which appears to affect not only kauth but also kdelibs
since it ships a very similar kdecore/auth/backends/dbus/DBusHelperProxy.cpp

As far as I am aware the fix for CVE-2019-7443 was not applied to
kdelibs. Is there a specific reason for that? Do you plan addressing this
potential vulnerability in kdelibs as well?

Concluding the Gitlab Discussion

Hi all,

Over the past few weeks we've had a discussion on whether we'd like to
migrate from Phabricator to Gitlab, for handling both our code reviews
as well as internal tasks (user facing bug reports are explicitly out
of context at this time)

Based on the comments the overall consensus seems to be at this stage
to favour switching to Gitlab.

This however is subject to a caveat around multiple task boards, which
would be needed for larger projects to effectively coordinate amongst
the various sub-projects.

As part of the transition we will also arrange for the email interface
to be enable

Label Printing

I have been given a TM-T88II M129B thermal printer by a friend who has
bought a newer label printer for his business.

This is a receipt printer but he was using it to print on rolls of
adhesive labels for product labelling.

I have not used a receipt/label printer like this on Ubuntu (or linux)

How would I go about setting this printer up to print from glabels?

Specifically how does the printer know when a label starts/ends?
The Dymo labelwriter labels which I have used in the past have black
bars on the back to align the labels.

Has anyone got any experience with this?

sway SIG

Hi all,

there's been a rising number of people interested in sway, the
i3-compatible Wayland compositor. At the same time, with the recent sway
1.0 release, the packaging work is also increasing, as more and more
components are split into separate projects.

For this reason, we thought about creating a sway SIG. The goal of the
SIG is simple: package all components of sway and make sure that Fedora
provides a good user experience with sway.

transport_maps for autoreply

Im trying to configure Postifx to pass mail to a custom Python script
which performs an out of office autoreply function.

The server has virtual mailboxes only no local unix accounts.

I have set Postfix to send mail to the script if there is an entry in
transport_maps. If a user sets up an autoreply for their mail box an
appropriate entry is put in transport_maps

However it appears to be impossible using this method to then have the
Python script re-submit the message using the sendmail command for
delivery into the mailbox.

/dev/net/tun no longer exists in F31 rawhide ?

Historically in Fedora the /dev/net/tun device always existed, even if
there is no 'tun' module currently loaded. Opening it then cause the
'tun' kernel module to autoload IIUC.

In Fedora 31 rawhide this is no longer the case.

I'm confused on what to send to fnmatch() to do a case insensitive search.

Any pointers ? Thanks.


konqueror vs. centos and mathematics

I'm running centos 7.
Firefox spends so much time in th D state that I am trying konqueror.
Displaying mathematics on wikipedia,
e.g. Remez algorithm seems to be a no go.
Wikipedia seems to use tex, so I installed texlive and texlive-* .
Firefox hadn't needed it and it did not seem to help konqueror.
My guess is that there is a bit somewhere that I need to flip,
but I have no idea where it is.

rpmlint: new "executable stack" warnings on rawhide

Hi everybody,

I've noticed that as of some days ago, some packages I build on rawhide are
now triggering the "W: executable-stack" warning for all included
executables and shared libraries.

I'm not sure which change might be the cause of this, but meson 0.50.0
seems to be a good candidate, since all my affected packages are built with
meson and the new version landed six days ago.

Is that new warning something we should worry about?

Proposal to CANCEL: 2019-03-18 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. I think we
got through all the outstanding business last week, but 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. Note there
*will* be a blocker review meeting.

Thanks, everyone!

Retiring v8-314

Hey, remember when I said I would keep v8-314 alive? I've changed my mind.


A) It is seriously old. I'm not sure I want to encourage anyone to try to
use it at this point.
B) Upstream v8 looks NOTHING like this package anymore
C) It doesn't build anymore because the giant SConstruct goop it uses is
not compatible with the current SCons.

PHP 7.x on CentOS 7 : which solution ?


As you all know, CentOS 7 is shipping PHP 5.4, which is OK in some
situations. Unfortunately, some applications like OwnCloud require a
more recent version of PHP.

Up until recently, I've been using PHP 5.6 packages from the Webtatic
repository. Despite the bad press this third party repo seems to have,
it has been working perfectly for me for a few years.


I would like to ask what is status of dist-git in CentOS? Do you use it is as bunch of packages or as package?

Originally dist-git was just bunch of packages copied to propper places. But since we started using dist-git in Copr we
packaged it:
<a href="" title=""></a>
and gave it propper upstream:
<a href="" title=""></a>

Copr and Fedora now use this package.

Concurrent changelogs - merge or nix?


For a few months now and in order to help upstreams find bugs and test
new features I have been maintaining in copr development versions of a
couple of my packages, namely pre-release versions of Molsketch and
development snapshots of SciDAVis built against Qt5. At the same time,
I have been updating the packages in Fedora, when there are new,
stable versions and backporting fixes. As a result, the changelogs
have diverged. When it's time to merge the changes in Fedora, how
should I deal with them?

Reviewing a package with an rpmfusion dependency

I was just looking at reviewing this package:

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

It is a Go wrapper around ffprobe, which is in the ffmpeg package,
which is in rpmfusion-free. The package can be built without ffprobe,
but cannot be used without it. The spec file contains this:

# We can't have a hard dependency because patents
Recommends: ffmpeg

Really, this package should have "Requires: ffmpeg", because it cannot
be used at all without ffprobe.

How do you feel about utf-8 in ruby code?

Is this acceptable?

'a⟶b'.to_sym == :a⟶b

Granted, this is a simplistic example, but how do you feel about using
utf-8 in the ruby code itself?

Gem of the Week - hexapdf - Read and Write PDF Documents; Merge, Extract, Optimize and Much More


I'm restarting (and updating) the Gem of the Week Series [1]
that highlights a new ruby library every week on Thursdays.

Let's welcome the hexapdf gem / library and command line tools [2a][2b] -
read and write PDF documents; start from zero or merge, extract,
optimize and much more.

Thanks to Thomas Leitner for the write-up (and the great gem).

Happy coding with ruby. Cheers.

howto monitor disks on a serveraid-8k?


I'd like to monitor the disks connected to a ServeRaid-8k controller in
a server running Centos 7 such that I can know when one fails.

What's the best way to do that?

I've orphaned spec2scl

It's most probably dead upstream anyway.

Building modules take forever


I'm building modules with Rust apps (because this is only way to get them
in f28/f29/f30) and I noticed that building them takes ages (more
specifically, more than 12 hours(!)). I can build all those packages on my
laptop under 1 hour. Even composes take less time.

It seems that MBS has limit of 20 builds in parallel. Is there any reason
for it? Why can't we just build all packages in parallel?

Firefox view downloads folder - changed program

Hi All,

A short while back, Firefox changed from using (I believe) Dolphin to using
gwenview when I choose 'view in container' or 'view all downloads'.

The problem with this is that when I choose 'view in containter' it no longer
selects the appropriate file. Does anyone know how to change it back?

I'm using C7 with KDE

Packaging .c files in a non-devel package


I’m currently working on a Fedora package for make-it-quick (<a href="" title=""></a>), a make-only build system with basic auto-configuration.

rpmlint complains about shipping .c files in a non -devel package. The package does contains several small .c files that are used for autoconfiguration.

One option would be to rename the package as “make-it-quick-devel”, but that seems a bit redundant given that the whole point of the package is to be a development tool.

Another option would be to rename the files to use some custom extension for configuration sources.

boot issue with latest kernel

Hi all,

Has anyone seen this issue before? This afternoon, I tried updating a
bare metal CentOS 6 box, and got some odd error messages on the console
during booting kernel 2.6.32-754.11.1. (These aren't exact, I forgot
to try to get a photo of the console.)

sd 0:0:4:0 timed out resetting card
3w-sas timed out resetting card

Then the boot would simply hang, with no obvious disk activity on the
drives and no other messages on the console. Reverting back to an
earlier kernel (2.6.32-431.17.1) was perfectly fine.
