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?

G++ Testsuite tls/thread_local-order2.C fails with 4.8.5 20150623 and older


while playing with building a current gcc by myself I detected that the
latest Centos 7 g++ isn't able to pass the respective test suite because of

FAIL: g++.dg/tls/thread_local-order2.C -std=c++11 execution test

Is this accepted behavior? If so, it basically breaks C++11 support on
this platform. What is already known in terms of a cause?

to do the new build now.


Pulse Secure/Juniper Networks Network Connect (CentOS 7)


Is anyone here using the "Network Connect" VPN software from Pulse
Secure (which was previously known as Juniper Networks Network Connect)?

I've used this successfully in the past to connect to the machines at
work from home. That was with CentOS 6, though, on CentOS 7 I can't seem
to get it to work. The software actually starts, and it also
successfully sets up a "tun" type network device with an IP address, but
I can't reach anything across the connection. In fact, even resources
outside VPN/the company network become unreachable.

Does anyone have any idea what may be wrong?

SQLError SqlState wrong when postgres backend dies


The SQLError function is returning the last statement level SqlState value if called after the postgres backend dies.

For exampel, if prior to the death of the postgres backend the last SQL statement that had an error returned an SqlState="23505"(due to a unique index problem) then after the postgres backend dies the next SQL statement will fail and SQLError returns:-

NativeError=26 SqlState="23505" ErrorMsg=Could not send Query(connection dead)

So ErrorMsg is correct but SqlState is not.

I was using psqlodbc-09.05.0400 but repeated my test with 10.01.0000 and got the same result.

Booting Ubuntu on a UEFI computer

I have purchased a new computer, it is my first UEFI coomputer so I am new to

I downloaded Ubuntu 17.10.1 ISO to install on an ASUS model X541S. I disabled
secure-boot and fast-boot and enabled CSM. On the first try I did not allocate
the bios_gurb partition and could not install. On the second try I allocated
the bios_grub partition and the install completed.

Ubuntu will not boot.

I did some google searches and found that you need a few files in the /efi/boot
directory which I can not find anywhere. Does the bios_grub partition have
those files?

Unannounced soname bump: gnome-desktop3

gnome-desktop3 was updated a week ago to 3.27.90, which bumped ABI from
.so.12 to .so.17. AFAICS no notice was given, nor am I sure that this
was even noticed by the maintainer, because once again:


I have rebuilt my affected package.

Intent to retire: zerofree

zerofree is a package that can take an ext2 (only?) filesystem, work
out what parts of the filesystem are not used, and either zero them or
sparsify them.

This was useful in about 2009 when I added it to Fedora. However
nowadays it's more convenient to use the equivalent kernel
functionality (via the ‘fstrim’ command or equivalent ioctls).

Missing BuildRequires: gcc/gcc-c++

Hash: SHA256

Over this weekend I've performed scratch-mass-rebuild without having gcc and
gcc-c++ in buildroot of all Fedora packages, many of which failed due to random
reasons and I grepped all logs for some common errors found by analyzing
hundreds of build logs.

to batch or not to batch?

Bodhi currently provides "batched updates" [1] which lump updates of
packages that are not marked urgent into a single batch, released once
per week. This means that after an update has graduated from testing,
it may be delayed up to a week before it becomes available to users.

Batching is now the default, but maintainers can push theirs updates
to stable, overriding this default, and make the update available the
next day.

Batching is liked by some maintainers, but hated by others
Unfortunately, the positive effects of batching are strongly
decreased when many packages are not batched.

Changing config from a %post?

The imapproxy package config defaults to user "nobody", which should be
changed (probably should have been done a while back, but whatever).
The user is set in the config though, and the config has to be edited
for the package to work (to at least set the upstream IMAP server), so
changing the packaged config will only result in a .rpmnew file.

What's the proper way to fix this?

Since wireshark-2.0 there are two GUIs availble for use. One is based
on GTK+ and the other on Qt. The upstream focuses on the development
of the Qt-based GUI and the GTK-based GUI has been marked as legacy.
Since wireshark 2.4.0 the GTK-based GUI is not supported anymore and
it is disabled by default.

F29 Self Contained Change: True Noarch Erlang Packages

Proposed Self Contained Change: True Noarch Erlang Packages
<a href="" title=""></a>

* Randy Barlow <bowlofeggs at fedoraproject dot org>

Erlang packages are currently all installed into
%{_libdir}/erlang/lib, despite most of them being noarch packages.
This proposal is to modify Erlang to search %{_datadir}/erlang/lib in
addition to %{_libdir}/erlang/lib when searching for dependencies.

== Detailed description ==
The Erlang VM is currently hardcoded to search for dependencies in
%{_libdir}/erlang/lib (on x86_64 this is /usr/lib64/erlan

F29 Self Contained Change: No more automagic Python bytecompilation

Proposed Self Contained Change: No more automagic Python bytecompilation
<a href="" title=""></a>

* Miro Hrončok <mhroncok at redhat dot com>
* Petr Viktorin <pviktori at redhat dot com>

The current way of automatic Python byte-compiling of files outside
Python-specific directories is too magical and error-prone. It is
built on heuristics that are increasingly wrong.
We will provide a way to opt-out of it and adjust the guidelines to
prefer explicit bytecompilation of such files.

F29 System Wide Change: Enable dbus-broker

Proposed System Wide Change: Enable dbus-broker
<a href="" title=""></a>

* David Herrmann <dh dot herrmann at gmail dot com>
* Tom Gundersen <teg at jklm dot no>

Enable dbus-broker.service to use dbus-broker as system and session
message bus backend.

== Detailed description ==
The dbus-broker project is an implementation of a message bus as
defined by the D-Bus specification. Its aim is to provide high
performance and reliability, while keeping compatibility to the D-Bus
reference implementation.

F29 Self Contained Change: BINUTILS 2.30

Proposed Self Contained Change: BINUTILS 2.30
<a href="" title=""></a>

* Nick Clifton <nickc at redhat dot com>

Rebase the binutils package from version 2.29 .1 to version 2.30. This
will bring in bug-fixes and some new features.

== Detailed description ==
Switch the binutils package from being based on the 2.29.1 release of
the FSF binutils to being based on the 2.30 release.

Launchpad i386 build: Memory exhausted

Hello everyone,

I'm packaging latest MAME 0.194 and it builds fine on my PPA.
Unfortunately, link fails for i386 due to virtual machine memory issues:

/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Memory exhausted

You can find a full log for build here:
<a href="" title=""></a>

and also here in case I got struck by the greatest idea and try a new build
<a href="" title=""></a>

Please note I've already put great care in tweaking linker options to
reduce memory consumption, with no luck.

Ubiquiti Model UAP-AC-PRO

Have any of you tried or succeeded in installation this on Centos 7.4?

Greg Ennis

Should we have a release manager for each release? (or, "who owns rawhide"?)

As shown at <a href="" title=""></a>, we haven't
had a successful compose for almost two weeks. AIUI this is mostly
worked out now, but it raises the question: who should be keeping track
of this and coordinating fixes? For the releases, the blocker bug
process basically handles this, so functionally the ownership ends up
with QA (and the various heroes of QA who then track down all the
problems). For rawhide, we don't have any such thing. Is it rel-eng? Is
it FESCo? Is it the FPgM?

Install CentOS 7 on MBR hard disk

I have a UEFI system, but I want to install CentOS on a MBR (not GPT)
hard disk.

The installation program keeps telling me that I must create an "EFI
system partition on a GPT disk mounted at /boot/efi".

I can't find a way to work around this. Is there a solution?

Percentage of CentOS coded in each language

Had a curious question about how much of Linux (as a usable
distribution, not just the kernel) is coded in each language. I can find
some older or vague references without citation that Linux is largely
coded in C and C++, with a fraction of a percent coded in other languages.

While the source is available, I'm not sure how would one go about
determining the percentage of CentOS coded in each language (either by
lines of source code or by RPM package). Anyone have any suggestions for
determining this info?

Kcalc maintainers/reviewers?

Hello all,

I have submitted two patches[1] on phabricator for the Kcalc and I am
not sure who to add as a reviewer.

The first one was added last year october added Evan Teran as approver
but I have not got any feedback yet.

Any hints or review is deeply appericiated!

Wayland and Soiftware Updater


In preparing one computer for updating, then running the Software
Updater, 182MB of packages are to be downloaded.

In looking through the packages descriptions (which it lists, rather
than the package names), I found
""Implementation of the Wayland EGL platform - runtime"

From memory, Wayland is a nasty that wrecks p[eople's systems.

As it is shown there, and I had "updated" this system, in the last day
or so, I did a search in Synaptic (very useful software, is Synaptic)
for Wayland, and, found this system has that (the runtime) package for
Wayland, and, varuipous other Wayland pac

Self-introduction: Kaushal

Hi all,

I've just been accepted into the packagers group, so that I can submit
and maintain a few packages. For anyone wondering why though, here's a
small introduction about me.

I'm Kaushal. I'm a developer who works out of Mysuru, India.

CentOS7 1801-01 cloud images


There is a new cloud image versioned as 1801-01 available at <a href="" title=""></a>
However, it is missing from the image-index file. I noticed the Azure version is also absent.

Was there a problem with the image build process? Should this image be used?

libevent-2.1.8 SONAME change.


Yesterday I updated libevent to the latest upstream release.

I mistakenly did not realized there was a SONAME change
in this update. So if your package is dependent on
libevent, you are going to have to rebuild.

My apologies for this oversight...


OpenShift Origin Install


I'm trying to install OpenShift Origin on a CentOS 7 host (just for
initial testing), and I'm trying to follow the instructions from here:

On that page we need to run: "atomic-openshift-installer install" to
configure OpenShift... after run the script it throws this errors:

Failure summary:


Unannounced soname bump in libevent

It appears that yesterday build of libevent bumped its soname. That
means that, at minimum, Memcahed is broken now.

BTW it is well possible, that the packager did not noticed the soname
bump, since the libraries are included into package by wildcards in
files section [1].

I think it would be helpful for users to have it defined in RPMs, so when they
do `dnf info`, `rpm -qi` they would just click on it and it would select right
component, right version and such for it.

Do you think same way? If so, which URL should we put there?

Mobile phone software

Thank you for reading this.

In 2007 I bought a new ZTE mobile phone which came with some Windows
software that allowed file editing, address book editing the sending of
SMSs and it allowed the phone to become a hot spot plus a few other tasks.

At the time (2007) I found a Linux command line tool but it wasn't a lot
of use because my phone wasn't supported; it was the latest model then.
I don't remember the name of the software and an Internet search hasn't
helped. Can anyone recommend some software that might be useful for my

racc--which does by default use a C extension).

kdiff3 status

Just got the code moved to KDE playground. The code builds under kf5/qt 5
without kde4support. Contextual menu plug-in for dolphin functions as
expected. Code base has been fully ported but not all features have been
tested after conversions. Two way merging is fully operational. Reversed
sorting no longer sorts twice to achieve this. There was never any need for it
to do so. Fixed a memory leak present since .91. Caused by a call to new whose
return was never even assigned to a variable.
