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?

MS Access: still having problems with NUMERIC

Hi there,

three months ago I reported a problem when using the ODBC driver
version 10 or higher in connection with Access 2010 with field
type NUMERIC.

Unfortunately I haven't received any feedback yet. Shall I ask
the question again?

Best regards,

Re: [CentOS] Update announcement request - correction...

"kernel-plus-3.10.0-862.3.2.el7.centos.plus" not ".2.3.".

Al McCann
There's been a circus in my head since the day I was born.

Update announcement request

Hi,

Can the updated files added to the Centosplus repo be sent to the announcement list please? I can't find them announced in any of the other lists.

Related to that, a new kernel was released to the Centosplus repo, kernel-plus-3.10.0-862.2.3.el7.centos.plus, but perf and python-perf were not updated for the new kernel. Is this an oversight? perf doesn't complain about mismatched versions though.

Thanks!

Updated FTBFS package policy

Fedora package maintainers,

FESCo approved an updated policy for packages which fail to build from
source during mass rebuilds (FTBFS) [1].

The updated policy is still at <a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fails_to_build_from_source" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fails_to_build_from_source">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fails_to_build_from_source</a>.

Highlights:

- packages which FTBFS are subject to orphaning if there is no
maintainer acknowledgement within 8 weeks

- packages which FTBFS in two consecutive mass rebuilds will be
retired soon after the second mass rebuild

The implementation of this policy hinges on improving the releng
scripts used to create and manage FTBFS bugs.

CentOS 7 system unsable after "yum update" (with some errors on the way)

God dag,

I've been trying to run a "yum update" (without additional arguments) to install the latest system updates on my CentOS 7 machine. It's no going so well. What happens is this:

1. The process gets stuck a couple of places as a "post" script or similar tries to run "dbus-send"; the problem looks awfully similar to what's described in <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018</a>. More specifically, this happens on installation of package "setroubleshoot" and "avahi". As a workaround, I'm using a manual kill to get rid of the hung process.

ARM64 CentOS AltArch release 7.5

Hi,

I have two questions:

(1) In 7.3 CentOS released a rootfs tar for ARM64. I can no longer find
this under the 7.5 release. Furthermore, I could also not find anything on
the ISO that seems rootfs-like in any near complete state. The closest was
the LiveOS/rootfs.img, but it seems this is not a complete fs as yum is
missing components, for example.

So my question is: Is there any way to still use CentOS releases on new
ARM64 development environments (without EFI boot support)?

(2) In terms of UEFI firmware support in the ARM64 world (e.g.

Intent to drop support of bodhi-client 0.9 in fedpkg

Hi all,

bodhi-client 0.9 is available in EPEL6 currently and other releases
have version >=2.0. fedpkg will benefit from this change to leverage
new functionalities introduced since bodhi-client 2.0 in a consistent
way.

As a result, `fedpkg update` will not work in EPEL6. New command to
operate override will be added soon, which will only work with
bodhi-client>=2.0 as well.

This change could probably affect users who uses `fedpkg update` in
EPEL6. But I have no idea if someone does it nowadays.

Issue[1] is created. Feel free to comment out your ideas.

Clone a custom CentOS 7 desktop using G4L over FTP

Hi,

A couple months ago, I migrated our local school (two servers, 20
desktop clients) from Slackware 14.1 to CentOS 7. The desktop clients
are running a customized lightweight desktop based on Xfce:

<a href="https://blog.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-xfce-centos-7/" title="https://blog.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-xfce-centos-7/">https://blog.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-xfce-centos-7/</a>

Home directories are all on the server, and authentication is
centralized. Everything works fine so far.

With Slackware I had found a neat trick to install the desktop clients.
First I installed and configured one single client PC from start to
finish.

New mail server slow connecting to web server

Having successfully killed my (Centos 7) mail server I have had to build a new
one.

Thankfully I had a server build that I was about to start configuring as my
new web server.

I appear to have set everything up okay, Exim, SpamAssassin, ClamAv, Dovecot,
Postgresql, httpd etc.

Everything appears fine apart from when I try to connect to my web server.
Whatever tried to connect suffers from a delay, and either times out or works
eventually.

I started off with problems connecting Exim to Postgresql on the web server.

Here are the recent changes to the packaging guidelines.

Many changes have been made to the Ruby packaging guidelines to reflect
the current state of Ruby packaging.

yum --skip-broken -y update

which then hung at a different place. After some Googling I tried

yum-complete-transaction

and

package-cleanup --cleandupes

both of which failed. I then using my "Microsoft" head I thought I'd try
rebooting to see if that fixes it.

Same sender, same sasl user

Hello people
I'm trying to setup sender must be tha same sasl user authentication, but I don't care where the connection comes from or is going.
I'd like only to prevent fake sender. I've tried 'smtp_sender_dependent_authentication = yes', but I think that is not enough.
Some tip?

Thanks.

CentOS 6 libvirt update?

I hate to pester, but I have several VM hosts to reboot. Is this update on
its way for CO6?

The CO7 libvirt update went out, and the qemu CO6 updates as well. Any
reason the CO6 libvirt update is not out yet?

hosting several VMs, including the ones used for the following impacted
services :

You can convert to local time with $(date -d '2018-05-24 12:00 UTC')

Root cause : a HDD in the array used to host the VMs failed, and there
is no hot-swap capabilities, so full "power off" is required to replace
the failed HDD and then start the rebuild operation.

Heads up: selinux-policy-3.14.1-25.fc28 breaks GDM

I installed the latest batch of updates for F28 tonight. Since that
included a new kernel (4.16.10-300.fc28), I rebooted. The system came up
with the GDM panic screen [1]. I rebooted into the previous kernel
thinking that something might be wrong with the new one. Same result. I
rebooted again and added enforcing=0 to the kernel boot line. That
worked. I did a full SELinux relabel immediately afterwards. Nothing
relevant changed labels.

The SELinux Alert Browser says there are no alerts.

don't show. I have to hit F5 to refresh the current directory view and
display the new files.

How to route userdir requests to different hosts?

Looking for a way to route requests for different users to different back end hosts behind a proxy of some sort

For example ...

http request to ...

<a href="http://abc.com/~user1" title="http://abc.com/~user1">http://abc.com/~user1</a>

always goes to one specific host

an http requests to ...

<a href="http://abc.com/~user2" title="http://abc.com/~user2">http://abc.com/~user2</a>

always goes to a another specific host

Any suggestions appreciated

Thanks

CentOS Atomic Host 7.1804 Available for Download

The CentOS Atomic SIG has released an updated version
(<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download" title="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download">https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download</a>) of
CentOS Atomic Host (7.1804), a lean operating system designed to run
Linux containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and tracking the
component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.

This release, which is based on the RHEL 7.5 source code, now ships
without any baked-in Kubernetes rpms, which makes it simpler for users
to layer their preferred Kubernetes or OpenShift packages onto the
host.

CentOS Atomic Host includes these core component versions:

Log Messages

I am running a mail server that has a few local recipients and a bunch of forwarded recipients for one domain. All is working properly. However, there are some log messages that I find confusing. The server receives many messages delivery attempts where the user is not included in the virtual_alias_maps. All but one of them receive log messages like

Recipient address rejected: unverified address

That makes sense. However, one of them receives

Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table

I don't see what is different for this particular user.

KVM won't boot after update to 1804

Vsftpd vs. iptables firewall script

Hi,

I'm currently setting up a local FTP server, to receive disk images sent
with G4L (Ghost4Linux).

This server has been running Slackware Linux before, and the Vsftpd
setup was relatively simple.

With CentOS things seem to be slightly different, so I'm currently
trying to work things out. For the moment, two things seem to be
creating problems, the simple iptables firewall and SELinux.

When I disable the firewall and SELinux, Vsftp works as expected. So far
so good.

Now let's tackle this one dragon at a time. First the firewall.

CentOS 7.5 Nautilus 100% reproducible crash.

Good day

When trying to add an 'Other Locations' in Nautilus CentOS 7.5, Nautilus
always 100% of the time crash with a kernel error.

Here is a short video showing the workflow:

<a href="https://youtu.be/dPmTDBRqL_I" title="https://youtu.be/dPmTDBRqL_I">https://youtu.be/dPmTDBRqL_I</a>

This did not happen in 7.4

Both 7.4 and 7.5 runs on VirtualBox 5.2.12 - but as stated before, this did
not happen in 7.4

I also did a fresh clean install of both 7.4 and 7.5, and 7.5 exhibits this
behaviour irrespective if it was updated or freshly installed.

Kind regards,

George

As of tzdata-2018e, the upstream will now default to using the

reposition window partly outside screen (kwin related)

I want my application to show the Qt virtual keyboard when it's running on a touchscreen.
To avoid that the virtual keyboard covers the input field, I'd like to move the whole
application window upwards so that the input field is always visible above the VKB, and move the window
back downwards when the keyboard hides.

However kwin seems to restrict the y-coordinate to only positive values.
Using xfwm4 this is possible (except when the window is fullscreen or maximized).

How can this be solved (best in a way which works regardless of the window manager) ?

Use EPEL without redirection ?

Hi,

Is there any way to deactivate the redirection to a mirror when using
the third-party EPEL repository ?

Our network uses a transparent HTTP/HTTPS proxy with a local AC. We can
create exceptions for sites like centos.org or
download.fedoraproject.org, but whenever we want to install a package
from EPEL, the mirror redirection causes an error due to redirection.

Any suggestions ?

What is the process for requesting an update to a package?

Hi all,

I am trying to use the package "fossil", but I am having problems
because its version is too old.

Fedora 28 (and thus the fossil package) contains version 2.2, while the
current version of fossil is 2.6 (released 15 days ago).

Version 2.2 included in Fedora, was released on April 2017.

What is the process of triggering an update to fossil package to version
2.6?

Question about disabling SSLv2 and SSLv3 and Opportunistic TLS

Hello all

I have opportunistic TLS (offering STARTLS) configured in my main.cf
file. I have been tasked to disable SSLv2 and SSLv3 as well as disable
medium strength ciphers (to use high strength ones instead) in my postfix
server. If I was to add the following to my main.cf:

smtpd_tls_mandatory_protocols=!SSLv2,!SSLv3
smtp_tls_mandatory_protocols=!SSLv2,!SSLv3
smtpd_tls_protocols=!SSLv2,!SSLv3
smtp_tls_protocols=!SSLv2,!SSLv3

will this be enough to disable medium strength ciphers as well as disable
SSLv2/v3? Or will I need more?

Purpose of non-user visible groups in comps?

I'm looking at updating the groups in comps for MinGW and there is already
a mingw32 group but it's not user visible.

My plan would be to update it so there is a user visible group, something
to the effect of "MinGW Development" that would install a basic mingw
development environment for both 32 and 64 bit windows applications.

Is there any special handling that needs to be done of the old group? Or
should I leave it alone and just create the new group?

Thanks,
Richard

Please help test Plasma 5.12.5 stable release update for 18.04

Details can be found at:

<a href="https://kubuntu.org/news/plasma-5-12-5-bugfix-update-for-kubuntu-18-04-lts-testing-help-required/" title="https://kubuntu.org/news/plasma-5-12-5-bugfix-update-for-kubuntu-18-04-lts-testing-help-required/">https://kubuntu.org/news/plasma-5-12-5-bugfix-update-for-kubuntu-18-04-l...</a>

However, in short, testing and verification is required so that these
updates can be shipped to the Ubuntu archive and so included in 18.04
point release ISOs.

Thank You

Kopete 18.04 lacks of notification settings

It may sounds like a silly question, but can someone confirm there's no
Notification by default on the last version of Kopete?

I'm using it on Kubuntu with staging repos enabled, version 1.13.0
(4:18.04.1-0ubuntu1~ubuntu18.04~ppa1), which relies on Qt5. So, going into
Settings menù, "configure notifications" (translated from italian), nothing
shows up there. I've checked the previous version (which relies on Qt4) and
that panel is full of entries.

I don't know if it's a bug, or the devs are still porting everything out on
Qt5.

Postfix stable release 3.3.1, and legacy releases 3.2.6, 3.1.9, 3.0.13

[An on-line version of this announcement will be available at
http://www.postfix.org/announcements/postfix-3.3.1.html]

Fixed in Postfix 3.3:

* Postfix did not support running as a PID=1 process, which
complicated Postfix deployment in containers. The "postfix
start-fg" command will now run the Postfix master daemon as a
PID=1 process if possible.

Question on CentOS 7.5 clutter-1.0 pkgconfig missing

Hello - I seem to be missing a pkgconfig clutter-1.0 file on C7.5

Doing yum provides "*/clutter-1.0" does not provide anything for
/usr/share/pkgconfig ?

Am I missing something ? how can I get the pkgconfig for clutter ?
My system has none even though I have all the clutter-devel packages
installed.

Thanks,

Jerry

Backports PPA policy for 18.04 LTS

Our default PPA policy for LTS releases states that [1]

"Monthly KDE software release backports are made available through the
Kubuntu PPA for as long as supported by the native LTS software stack
but no longer than 2 years."

For 16.04 LTS we allowed an upgrade of Qt in the backports PPA [2] from
5.5 to 5.6.x, however this was not altogether a radical decision as the
Qt 5.6 release was a LTS one, and already being built and maintained by
the Ubuntu phone/Qt team in their overlay PPA.

For 18.04 LTS, we are already on Qt 5.9 LTS, with more point releases to
come, hopefully as SRU updates to t

Mail being delayed for 5 minutes in active queue before being relayed

Hi there,

I've set up a mail server that should be relaying messages to a different
cluster of Postfix boxes. When I attempt to send a message to the first box,
mail sits in the active queue for 5 minutes before being (successfully)
relayed to the cluster of Postfix boxes. which is then delivered correctly.
I'm trying to figure out why this is and have it relay immediately (as
expected).

*My box I'm attempting to relay FROM is on:

*Here's my (sanitized) postconf -n:*

Thanks for your help.

Kubuntu Automation 2.2 first beta released

Hi,

the first beta of Kubuntu Automation 2.2 is now available in the testing PPA:
<a href="https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ninjas/+archive/ubuntu/dev-tools-testing/" title="https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ninjas/+archive/ubuntu/dev-tools-testing/">https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ninjas/+archive/ubuntu/dev-tools-testing/</a>

The most important change compaed with the previous 2.2 alphas is the debian
merging script rework; that doesn't mean we are ready to merge from debian
right now, but we will be very soon. The merging script still has a couple of
glitches which I would like to solve in next releases, but it's already good
enough to be tested and try to find unknown issues with it,

Cheers.

ruby-xz 1.0.0 released

Good evening everyone,

I am pleased to announce that I have released ruby-xz 1.0.0 today after
several years of stallment.

ruby-xz provides Ruby bindings for the liblzma[1] library, the C library
behind the compression programme xz(1). It can thus be used to create or
unpack XZ-compressed tarballs if used together with the minitar[2]
RubyGem.

How to use the "opengl" qt rendering backend instead of "raster"?

Hi,

I am using KDE on an AMD Kaveri based system featuring a 4k display.
Quite a few operations/animations feel rather slow on that machine
(e.g. the semi-transparent selection window on the plasma desktop, or
the slide-animation in kicker).
So animations inside windows (drawn by QT) are slow, the compositor
related animations are fluent and fine.

Looking at the profiles it all boils down to QT using the "raster"
backend. I see tons of cycles spent inside functions like
qt_memfill32, comp_func_solid_SourceOver_sse2 and the likes.

cwickert: Unresponsive package maintainer

As per step 4 of Policy for nonresponsive package maintainers [1], I'm asking here whether anyone knows cwickert (Christoph Wickert), who is maintainer of the different packages including gtkhash, and has a way of contacting him/her. This package is quite outdated as it has not seen an update in >4 years. There are 5 open bug reports by 5 different people filed against this package and some of them are requesting an update [2]. None of those bug reports have any comment from the maintainer. One of those bug reports is open since 2013-12-03 [3].

Problem with virtual_alias_maps and backscatter

Hi,

I got 2 domains, let's call them example.org and example.com and i want
them to share the same mail addresses. So <a href="mailto: ... at example dot org"> ... at example dot org</a> and
<a href="mailto: ... at example dot com"> ... at example dot com</a> should always reach the same destination.

The mail system consists of 2 MX hosts and a single backend MTA that
forwards all mails to my imap server.
