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?

Jan 31 14:01:09 geko postfix/smtpd[24223]: warning: Connection rate limit

weird issue

My Dell Precision T1600 desktop computer doesn't want to restart no matter how many times I try it. It'll boot up and shut down but no restart. Hmmm..what gives?

Designing sruby (Secure Ruby) - Use ivars (@balance) or Storage class (storage.balance) for (Blockchain) State?


If anyone follows along about the new ruby variant / flavor called sruby
- Small, Smart, Secure, Safe, Solid & Sound (S6) Ruby.

Here's a language design choice: How to track the contract's
(blockchain) state?

a) Let's (re)use ruby's ivars (object instance variables) e.g.:

def initialize
@owner = msg.sender
@counter = 0
@bets = Mapping.of( Integer => Bet )

or b) let's use a more "explicit" Storage class e.g.:

def initialize
storage[:owner] = msg.sender
storage[:counter] = 0
storage[:bets] = Mapping.of( Integer => Bet )

odd messages at boot time

Understanding pflogsumm "delivered" counter

I'm looking at the output of today's mail server activity and it does not add

The only mail multiplication rule I have is 1:2.

FOSSAsia passes available

As I mentioned last week, CentOS will be sponsoring FOSSAsia next month
- <a href="" title=""></a> - and I have three passes for the event,
available for the low, low price of one hour of "booth duty" at the
CentOS table.

The Expo at FOSSAsia is open:

Thursday: 12:00 - 18:00
Friday and Saturday: 10:00 - 18:00
Sunday: 10:00 - 16:00

At the moment, I expect to be working all of those hours, and could
really use someone for at least one hour each day, so that I can step
away occasionally.

Please contact me off-list if you're interested. First come, first served.

Anyone else having problems?

Orphaning mozjs52

Hi all,

All of GNOME and the core desktop stack (gjs, polkit, libproxy etc) are
ported from mozjs52 to mozjs60 in rawhide/F30 and I'd like to orphan
mozjs52 or transfer its ownership to someone interested in taking care
of it.

mozjs52 has two remaining packages linking to it, according to repoquery:

DKIM for locally generated mails - how best to approach?

Greetings, All!

I just discovered that mail generated locally (i.e. introduced by pickup
daemon) is not signed.

Digging in documentation, I've found <a href="" title=""></a>
But its description made me reluctant to enable it straight away.

And then there's rather old post on SO <a href="" title=""></a>
which says that even if it's enabled, the reports generated by postfix itself
will still not be signed.

Is there a recommended way of solving this?

Making my website accessible from another computer?

Hi, I tried adding

Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

to my httpd.conf file but that broke Apache. I would like to host my
website from my computer (YES I realize it will only be accessible while
apache is running and the computer is on, and yes I realize there are
security issues--but I just want to do it temporarily to see if it can be
done! for fun!) so e.g. my family and friends with links only can access it
through my static I.P. address.

How would one go about doing this?

Apache upgrade 2.2 -> 2.4 and "PerlAuthenHandler Authen::Simple::IMAP"


I have just started upgrading all of my CentOS servers from 6.X to 7.X.
With that Apache gets upgraded from 2.2 to 2.4.

While I have fixed most of the issues one that I cannot solve is the
"PerlAuthenHandler Authen::Simple::IMAP" in .htaccess files.

I use this frequently on many machines as it is real easy for me to look after this,

Using apache 2.2 this used to work like a charm with an .htaccess file in the directory to protect:

Readline 8.0 rebase in progress

Was the apparently in-progress readline 8.0 rebase announced
somewhere? All I can recall seeing is [1], which said, 3.5 weeks ago,
that the rebase would happen "in a couple of weeks". But apparently
there is a side tag and builds are in progress.

I would have appreciated a heads-up on this. I chose this weekend,
when I get an extra day off of work, to do the big gap 4.10.0 and
sagemath 8.6 updates. But in between the bootstrap build of gap
4.10.0 and the final build of it, a readline rebuild, into the side
tag, happened. Now what am I supposed to do?

panic after upgrading to 3.3.2 from 3.3.0

Hello List,

I'd like to ask whether You're aware of any change which might cause
breakage in my setup involving spamc with a completely unchanged
configuration in between - I'm getting the following error:

*"panic: master_reap: unknown pid"*

I'm running Docker containers from Alpine images orchestrated by
Kubernetes on ARMv6 with all services running in separate pods, but I
have also tested on Debian to figure out whether it's an Alpine-specific
problem - alas, it also occurs on Debian.

Support for "Linux 5"

I understand that the next Linux release will have a major version of 5. This
doesn't portend any technical changes. As has happened the last few times
linux 5 should be no different than 4 which was no different than 3.

It looks to me like the postfix 3.4 makedefs still have:


Is it too late to add 5?

Removing Atomic Host from Fedora Rawhide

Hello Fedora Atomic Host users,

With the switched focus to Fedora CoreOS for the future of our immmutable, container
oriented operating systems the last major release of Fedora Atomic Host was Fedora
29. Considering this we are removing the builds for Fedora Atomic Host from rawhide
and will no longer be building that stream.

If you are currently using Fedora Atomic Host on rawhide, please rebase to Fedora
29 so you'll continue to receive updates until Fedora 29 EOL. You can rebase with
the command below. Please test this on some non-critical systems first.

What is the proper place for GDM related dconf settings now?


It seems that with CentOS 7.6 and Gnome 3.28, a clean install of a
Workstation package profile does not build the /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/
directory tree. I have several desktops in operation which we
kickstart built with an older 7.3/4/5 version of CentOS as the base
install media. These all have a dconf directory for gdm, and I assume
a dconf profile directory for gdm as well (though I admit it always
worked so I never cared about looking for it).

is never coming up. The boot process seems to be looping. I have two

Does live/install ISO Ubuntu 18.04 need a connection to the public Internet to
come up? I only have dialup Internet and initially, the network will be to a
closed vlan. Is the a problem?

Also, I have only allocated 1G of RAM to the VM. Is this too little?

Failing builds on Rawhide GCC 9


I'm doing daily builds of kakoune (vim-like editor) on COPR and it is
failing for the last 23 days on Rawhide. This is happening only on

It looks like this could be a problem with switching to GCC 9. The last
successful build was on GCC 8 but there was time when my API token
expired and I missed that. So I have 2 months gap between successful
and failed build :(.
When I asked developers of the project they said that it looks like the
c++17 standard they are using is not working correctly.

Please Recommend Affordable and Reliable Cloud Storage for 50 TB of Data


Could you recommend affordable and reliable cloud storage for 50 TB of data?

Here are some important factors to consider:

1. Personal/non-commercial use.
2. Must be affordable, since I am unemployed most of the time and have
super low levels of income for the past 12 years since I graduated
from the National University of Singapore in 2007.

Games Spin Repairs

The Games Spin repairs have been submitted as a pull request and are
awaiting merging [1]

In addition to this PR, 6 packages were identified as needing
maintenance. 2 were dropped from the spin (rogue and glob2) and the
rest have been repaired.

The dropping of rogue and subsequent announcement resulted in rogue
getting a new maintainer! Hopefully, we can see that game come back
into the spin in the near future (Thanks @wart!) [2]

Logging change with Postfix 3.4.0-RC2

The 3.4.0-RC2 version of Postfix appears to have dropped support for
logging via TCP Unix sockets. As recently as 3.3.0 Postfix used a TCP Unix
socket to connect to syslog.

question about upgrade qemu and libvirtd

Hi Team,
I am not sure if I should put my question here, I have googled long
time, no explicit information found.

We need to support KVM encryption and decided to use LUKS.

Refer to:

libvirtd and KVM should be able to support LUKS format disk directly.

Unfortunately, seems that we need to use libvirt2.2+ and qemu
2.6+, because our current qemu-kvm version does not support luks

And our hypervisor's OS is CentOS 7.2 with libvirt 2.0 and qemu-kvm 1.5.3

toolchain requirements for external kernel modules

I've been experimenting with enabling CONFIG_GCC_PLUGINS in the kernel
since I've heard some people express interest in stackleak (I'm interested
as well). a gcc plugin gets built as an .so file for use during
compilation. This means we need to package this .so file as part
of kernel-devel for building external modules. This is easy to
do but it also now introduces a tighter restriction on the toolchain
used for building modules since gcc will refuse to load a plugin and
fail to build the module if the versions don't match.

Centos bug 15570 - Not just a VBOX bug, can also reproduce on direct hardware install

Ran into this rather frustrating bug when working with VBOX on a Windows 10
host. It should come as no surprise that I would hit this bug when
installing CentOS, and also with RHEL 7 Server with GUI (since you get the
same kernel).

C7 basic install, HATE

I've got an old server, that I'm *trying* to rebuild from C6. Our regular
key, with the kickstarts, etc, simply won't boot. Just a blank screen, and
it never goes anywhere.

So I'm trying to build it from a year-old regular installer.

100% of the time, the graphical screen is screwed. Resolution's so big
that I cannot see the right-hand 10% or 15% of the screen. There doesn't
seem to be any way that I've found yet to make it higher res, so I can
read it.

It's *not* the monitor's fault. It is an ancient Matrox video card...

Heads up: significant change to fs.protected_regular and fs.protected_fifos sysctls with systemd 241

Hey folks! Just wanted to give the list a heads-up about a significant

There are a couple of sysctls that were apparently introduced with
Linux kernel 4.19, fs.protected_regular and fs.protected_fifos .

Getting my mail hoster to accept my cron output emails

I switched from mail hoster. The from address from a cron job is created by
postfix. This was something like: <a href="mailto: ... at mail dot"> ... at mail dot</a>. My old provider
accepted this, but the new one does not. He says that the RFC says that you
should not accept emails with a non existing from address. Is this true?

I added in
myorigin = $mydomain

Now the above becomes <a href="mailto: ... at example dot com"> ... at example dot com</a>.

But to make it work I would need to a mailbox for every user: root, www,
ftp, … With some cron versions you could use MAILFROM, but sadly this does
not work on Debian.

Changing UID numbers

Hello everyone -

I have a question regarding UID and GID numbers. First, a bit of background:

Yesterday I suffered a complete power failure. My UPS batteries ran everything for an hour, but that was not long enough. My CentOS6 server shut itself down, just like it should. When the power came back up, the perfectly running server was no longer working. The boot hard drive was complete toast. ARGH!

OK, I have backups and spare hard drives. CentOS6 is getting a bit long in the tooth.

Click tracker removal ideas?

Quick question I hope:

Does anyone have any suggestions for a tool for filtering out click
trackers from links in email bodies and rewriting the links without the

safestruct gem - Safe Data Structures (Array, Hash, Struct) - Say Goodbye to Null / Nil (and the Billion Dollar Mistake)


I've put together a new safestruct gem / library [1] that collects
safe data structures (array, hash, struct)
and lets you say goodbye to null / nil (and maybe)
to fix the billion dollar mistake.

How can the code work without nil?

Let's say hello to zero :-).
The new rule for NO null/nil ever (again) is:

**All variables - including structs, arrays and mappings (hash
dictionaries) -
MUST ALWAYS get set (initialized) to ZERO (default) values.**

What's zero?

Is zh_Hans a valid locale name?


I recently added dino to Fedora, and rpmlint seems unhappy with the
locale in the package:

dino.x86_64: E: incorrect-locale-subdir /usr/share/locale/zh-Hans/LC_MESSAGES/
dino.x86_64: E: invalid-lc-messages-dir /usr/share/locale/zh-Hans/LC_MESSAGES/

dino.x86_64: E: invalid-lc-messages-dir /usr/share/locale/zh-Hans/LC_MESSAGES/

The upstream locale is zh_Hans, which has similar error messages.

Fedora 30 Rawhide 20190214.n.0 nightly compose nominated for testing

Announcing the creation of a new nightly release validation test event
for Fedora 30 Rawhide 20190214.n.0. Please help run some tests for this
nightly compose if you have time.


I have opened a Change Request to change the defaults for Fedora 31 to
Cgroups V2.  I am looking for what packages will be affected by this
change.   Basically any package that adjusts Cgroups via the CgroupFS,
my understanding is working the the systemd APIs, you should be fine.

Packages That I know will be affected:

Container Tools

* Runc, Podman, Buildah, Kubernetes, Docker, Moby-engine

Virtualization tools

* Libvirt


* jvm


* Anaconda

Anyone know of other packages?

Orphaned some packages

Hi all,

due to lack of interest and upstream development I've orphaned the package:

devilspie: <a href="" title=""></a>
keybinder: <a href="" title=""></a>

I had a hard time finding out if there was any upstream activity at all
and I think there are newer upstream projects.

All the best
