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?

may we suggest ICANN not run that many new tlds?

in the coming future, everything is a TLD, the cat, the dog, the pig,
the rose, the coffee, the wine, the bike ...
that would be terrible for domain based validation.
we have already too many TLDs today.
may we suggest ICANN not open a new TLD anymore?


relay based on sender and destination


I have a mail server relaying for different domains and using a
transport map to deliver local domains.

Now I need the following:

* Mail from and to to be relayed through
* the rest of mails, to be deliver or relayed according to transport_maps

I have found the sender_dependent_relayhost_maps but with this I
can only check the sender but not the destination.

Any idea?

how to setup storage for two different MX in different locations


We plan to setup two postfix as MX servers.
One is in west location, such as CA state.
Another is in east location, such as NYC.

The question is, how to make storage shared by two MX servers?
The messages should be stored in one place, such as webmail/IMAP could
read all messages directly from this location.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Virtualizing on CentOS 8

I am trying to get going with CentOS 8.

In the past I would run qemu-system-x86_64 -hda myfile.img
get a console and off we go.

I dont with to use virt-manager and the gui and all - I just wish to have a
command line to boot up and run my img.
Is there something like that I'm not finding ?

I have found virsh - but I dont see how to make it run with an image file
from the command line. Perhaps I'm missing something.



Relay attempt questions

Below is a postmaster notification about a relay attempt.

Page display on default html page

I have created a default html site that is displayed when visitors typed
in a domain that I own, but for which I haven't yet created a website for.

As this default site has a domain name that is not the name that a
visitor typed in, I would like to disply that domain name on its index
page like

'You requested'

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

'but unfortunately it doesn't have a site page yet'

Can someone tell me how I can do something like this without java script?


can't login as subsequent FreeIPA users

When I set up a machine with CentOS 8, I used the "Enterprise Login" in
the initial setup wizard to authenticate against my FreeIPA server.
This worked fine, and I have no issues logging in with that initial user.

However, I am unable to use GDM or the console to login as any *other*
valid user from FreeIPA. From GDM I get something like "Sorry, that
didn't work" and "Permission denied" on the console. I've verified that
the credentials are correct, and that I am able to manually get a ticket
via kinit for one of those other users from this machine.

Re: [CentOS] Firefox 68 jnlp files

I have yet to find an app that cannot use openjdk instead of oracle java. It may be a little less streamlined, but it's functional. Ignore/cancel any pop ups that talk about updating java.

If I missed this answer, I apologize as I receive the digests.

Eclipse and Fedora 31

Dear Eclipse users,
Whoever faces issues installing Eclipse RPMs on Fedora 31 - this is beyond
us (Eclipse packagers) and depends on a number of bigger issues in Fedora
land both technical and political.
Until this is fixed, you're strongly recommended to try using Eclipse from
Flathub [1].

Update Qt 5.9.5 to Qt 5.12 in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Non-ASCII bytes in email header and similar

Looking for protocol expertise that some here might have …

I understand that email header content should contain 7-bit ASCII-only.
However, as an implementor of email software such as a milter, how do I
best deal with non-conforming input?

Say I receive a header line in my milter that isn’t ASCII-only, what is
the most sensible (standards-compatible?) decoding I should apply –
Latin1? UTF-8? What works best with real email traffic?

Please ignore if this is completely off-topic here. Thank you.

IP addresses in helo

Is it safe (or mostly safe) to simply block attempts to deliver mail with a helo that is only an IP address? (I am talking about only on postfix/stmpd and obviously not on postfix/submit or related).

I have about 50,000 NOQUEUE reject from "helo=<[]>" over the last week, for example. I see very few otherwise, and all are obviously spam with return addresses like <a href="mailto:account-security- ... at 091773 dot com">account-security- ... at 091773 dot com</a> or <a href="mailto: ... at 0904 dot ru"> ... at 0904 dot ru</a>.

Android signing keys, provide Android builds in our F-Droid testing
repository more rapidly and have the possibility of providing Snap
builds in the future.

Additionally, it will allow us to increase the number of FreeBSD and

scalapack 2.1 in rawhide

orphaned them.

Nokogiri security update v1.10.5

Nokogiri v1.10.5 was released on 2019-10-31.

This is a security release.

Maintainers realized, after the release of v1.10.5, that it addresses CVEs
in upstream libxslt rated as "Priority: Medium" and "Priority: Low" by
Canonical, and "NVD Severity: Medium" by Debian. More details are available
below. More details are available below.

If you're using your distro's system libraries, rather than Nokogiri's
vendored libraries, there's no security need to upgrade at this time,
though you may want to check with your distro whether they've patched this
(Canonical has patched Ubuntu packages).

Configuring/using grub with grub-install and grub-mkconfig

I have been searching around (and asking questions) about how to add a

So, is there a good tutorial anywhere about all this?

Both packages are already outdated in versions.

User unknown in virtual mailbox table problem

This is probably off-topic, but maybe slightly related. I can open a
support ticket with Gandi, but something's definitely amiss with their

other things directly related to their service which have not yet even
been assigned numbers, so I thought I'd try here first.

I've re-initialized my Postfix setup. I can send mail, but probably
because of a DNS misconfiguration cannot receive anything.

Disabling of 'kdav-davitemfetchjob' test in KDav

For some time now the Akonadi Test Runner infrastructure has had

Problem with hardwired HTTP_PROXY

opensuse 15.1
gnome 3.26.2

I recently started having difficulty with the squid proxy, particularly with
Chrome. Tracing the problem led to the environmental variable HTTP_PROXY being
set to <>. When the proxy worked, not a problem.
I have since removed all of the proxy settings, and set the proxy to Disabled.
HTTP_PROXY is still set to that URL.
By adding echo statements to ~/.profile and ~/.bashrc, I have come to the
conclusion that it is gnome startup that is setting that value.

Below "before" indicates the echo was at the beginning of the script.

OpenMPI is flaky


I was trying to bump the espresso package to v4.1.1 and came across
multiple issues in the %check phase of the builds on Rawhide, F31 and

On Rawhide and F31, some tests seem to receive an error in the MPI_INIT phase.
*** An error occurred in MPI_Init
*** on a NULL communicator
This happened with OpenMPI, but not MPICH.
I was able to workaround these failures by retriggering the builds a
couple of times, which isn't a great solution.

Orphaning nm-tray

Hi there,

I'll orphan the package nm-tray due to not in active usage nor development.

Currently FTBFS:

Please feel free to pick the package if you still think it's of any
usefulness in Fedora.


Intent to retire OCE (OpenCascade Community Edition)

It has a lot of libraries so I haven't tried figuring out what all packages
are affected but since OCC (OpenCASCADE) went GPL OCE has not been updated
and appears to be no longer maintained.

I have moved FreeCAD over to my new "opencascade" package and am working on
moving netgen-mesher over. Once complete, unless there's a good reason to
keep it, I plan to retire it in Rawhide.


Suddenly... No wifi!


I was just sitting here, doing my stuff, when suddenly I had no network. I checked
my other devices, and they could use the wifi just fine. The network widget (I'm
using Plasma) was disabled and wifi couldn't be enabled again. Maybe I had hid
some wifi kill-switch on the keyboard?

Trouble filtering incoming mail

Hi all,

I am having some trouble with filtering incoming mail. First, I do not
understand certain "access denied" actions. Second, I cannot get
filtering by sender domain to work correctly.

Relevant configuration snippets see below.


Cron - log when job ends?


In trying to resolve a problem with a cron job, we can see when the job starts
by looking in the /var/log/cron log file. However, I was asked if when the job
ends could also be logged. (It seems to be something that crops up every so
often over the years.)

I found on the 'net this article
<a href="" title=""></a>

which mentions a loglevel (-L) option, and by setting this to 2 it will log
when a cron job ends. It sounds great, and just what we could use. The downside
is that there seems to be no such option anymore.

C8 Questions

Hi all,
I've several questions about C8. I'm using 8 on my personal NAS and
works very well. I'm running several VMs with centos 8 and noticed

1) Why corosync, pacemaker and pcs are missing on C8? They are only
available on rhel with payments( rhel ha addons)?
2) Why there is only Gnome as available DE? I use centos on my
workstation and I'm a kde-plasma user. XFCE is ok but not gnome.

libdvdread SONAME bump


libdvdread 6.0.2 brings a SONAME bump from .so.4 to .so.7 due to a small
change in the pgc_t struct (still_time and pg_playback_mode fields were
swapped). Only dvdauthor and libdvdnav packages in Fedora and dvd95
package in RPM Fusion actually reference any of those fields, but it's
still an ABI break. I'm doing the rebuilds using my provenpackager
privileges now.

CUPS 2.3.0 coming into rawhide

Hi all,

after 2 years or so of solving licensing issue, I would like to announce
CUPS-2.3.0 is going into Fedora rawhide next week.

The 2.3.0 version brings several changes:

_Change of license:_

It is Apache software license 2.0 with exceptions for LGPLv2 only and
GPLv2 only now.

Getting Recordset through returning refcursor

Hello friends,
hopefully I am right here bcz its my first post so..
I am using the Provider=MSDASQL.1 through psqlODBC as Data Source(created user DSN).
Postgresversion is 12.
Programming language is C++.
OS = Windows 10.
So my problem is when I call a sql function which returns a refcursor for dynamic sql purposes it doesnt fill the recordset.
So my question is does the ODBC driver supports refcursor??
Is there any example/codesnippet or any sugestions?

question about PciExpress slots and SSDs

I have a Fujitsu Esprimo P910 system running xubuntu 19.04 to which I
am thinking of adding a bigger SSD. It already has a 128Gb SSD for
the OS but that is just an 'ordinary' 2.5" SATA one that I simply
connected to a SATA interface and thus it runs at maximum 600MB/s.

The motherboard has unused PCIExpress slots as follows:-

PCI-Express 3.0 x16 1 x (312 mm / 12.29 inch) Full height
PCI-Express 2.0 x4 (mech.

I'm going to update jsoncpp in Rawhide, which includes a so name bump.

I'll take care of bootstrapping CMake and rebuilding of all affected
packages during today.

There is an impact for third party repos, too, which needs to be handled
by them.


BOINC Manager not working after an update

I installed an update to Ubuntu 19.10 and now the "BOINC Manager" no longer
runs. I tried to run the program from the icon and in a terminal, as far as I
can tell there are no error messages. How do I trouble shoot this?

How can I find the program name that is executed when I click an icon that is
on the task bar?

lots of connections that make no sense


I am wondering what is the purpose of connections like these:

postfix/smtpd[5147]: connect from unknown[]
postfix/smtpd[5147]: disconnect from unknown[] ehlo=1
auth=0/1 rset=1 quit=1 commands=3/4

I have lots of these in my logs, from different IP addresses.

What is the goal of these agents ? I mean, they don't try to do
anything. They don't try to deliver spam, they don't try to use my
postfix as relay.

Re: Something wrong with kernel-headers on fedora 30?

That does not be it works in all cases.

I have Highpoint RSSD 7101A card with 2TB of NVME storage, which I
would like to use!

With the latest Fedora 30 update (5.3.7) the kernel will not boot
because the modprobe can find the driver (rsnvme).

Interestingly the two previous kernels (5.1.19 and 5.1.20) have the
same complaint but boot anyway.

[Redirecting from pgsql-novice]

Hi All: First time poster and PostgreSQL noob...trying to set up a linked server in SSMS (SQL Server 15.0.2000.5) using 64-bit PostgreSQL Unicode(x64) driver. The PostgreSQL server is 10.5. My access to the server is readonly.

I configured the datasource and tested successfully, and am able to create the linked server in SSMS and drill down to the tables, but if I try a simple query, I receive the error:

The OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "[DSNname]" supplied inconsistent metadata for a column.

Re: When will akonadi work with Gmail?

This really needs attention, obviously the best fix would be to go back in
time and change a few things so this didn't happen in the first place but it
is probably more cost effective and quicker if the devs were more proactive
about sorting things out with google.

FWIW the "fix" isn't working for every instance - it seems ok for the first
machine on the account but subsequent ones trigger an amazing cascade of
google lockouts and security warnings which sends akonadi on that machine into
CPU melt that needs killing (and restarts everytime the network resumes) (yes
