Building software based on Firefox 58 ? Please read


for everyone maintaining packages that are derivatives of the Mozilla
Firefox source code:

If you're updating to Firefox 58, I'd like to suggest that you include a
local patch.

Background: We are changing the default NSS database file format, and
Firefox needed to be changed to be compatible with that change, too.

Upstream Firefox 58 includes a change, which enforces that new format.
The upstream Firefox 58 binaries will therefore already use the new file

For Fedora, we've decided that we want to keep using the old file format
in the already released Fedora versions 26 and

Test gating enabled in Bodhi

Good Morning Fedorans!

On Thursday, a new version of Bodhi was deployed that enabled Bodhi to
gate updates based on test results. You may notice a "Test Gating
Status" message in the right have side of the page.

One thing to know about this is that there is currently a confusing
issue where Bodhi will say that the tests have failed when the tests
haven't finished running[0].


Can someone decode what this means?

failure to start httpd after today update


I ran today update of my CentOS 6.9 running on Dell T105 (AMD OPTERON) and httpd failed to start. Any idea what could cause that? I never had a problem after CentOS 6.x update. Web server runs since March 2017. I do updates usually once in a week.

ABI gate: internal-only shared object

Here's something I didn't expect from the new ABI gate. Which, before
I go further, I think will be a great idea nearly all of the time. I
think avoiding unintentional ABI breaks in stable releases is a worthy

But ... I maintain a package called gap. It provides what amounts to
a scripting language for doing certain types of math. It comes with a
bunch of addon packages that provide specific mathematical

Document/collaboration server advise needed

Dear All,

Three groups of scientists need to write documents collaboratively. They

want some collaborative work environment, mostly to work on documents.

In the past scientists were using TeX, and one of version control

Cross-Compiling Ruby gems with Native Extensions

Hi all,

I am interested in using Ruby and some gems (some of them with native
extensions) for a project here at my University.

As we are doing for teaching purposes, we are going to use embedded
architectures and thus the need for cross compiling arises.

I delved into mkmf.rb lib file and as of my understanding, the generation
of makefiles uses build-time configure settings.

My question is: how to generate makefiles using mkmf (for gems) with
cross-compiler targets?

-z defs linker flag activated in Fedora rawhide

I updated redhat-rpm-config to instruct ld to reject linking shared
objects with undefined symbols. Such undefined symbols break symbol
versioning because the are not necessarily bound to the correct symbol
version at run time. (rhbz#1535422)

### Disable strict symbol checks in the link editor (ld)

By default, the link editor will refuse to link shared objects which
contain undefined symbols. In some cases (such as when a DSO is
loaded as a plugin and is expected to bind to symbols in the main
executable), undefined symbols are expected.

Podcast-fetching tool that renames duplicate filenames?


I used to use hpodder until it was removed, then I switched to podget,
which does what I want except for one podcast I tried to add recently
for which every episode has the filename 'media.mp3', so when I
fetched it, it downloaded every episode but each one overwrote the
previous one, leaving only the most recent one on disk but with all of
them marked as downloaded in the database.

Is there a podcast-fetcher that will automatically or configurably
rename episode filenames to handle situations like this?

I'd prefer a command-line tool, but will settle for anything that will

Strange Audio Behavior

[ Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS; Dell Optiplex 760 ]

I have been using Ubuntu for a very long time.

Suddenly, a few months ago, my audio/sound functionality changed.
I used 'alsamixer' to see what might be wrong, but failed to see anything

Symptoms? If I run the 'Spotify' application, sound works normally ...
the music comes out of my two Altex external speaks.

But, if I fire up 'Google Chrome' and go to the Spotify web site, there is
no audible sound!
Same thing with YouTube videos ...

Install Problems

Ok, I'm sitting here with a brand new 16.04.2 install,
done the upgrades, and while it's a bit of a
disapointment in some ways, it does just fine in
others. Par for the course, I guess.

One of the problems is that firefox can't find its,
".o/", files with both hands.

Examples of savepoints and transactions

I have a system that uses begin and commit transactions. It works like a dream! ;)
Now I want to test it by creating test data. This how ever cannot be rolled back. I think the solution for rolling back test data is to use savepoints and rollback. I think it is hard to find examples of this scenario. Are there some good guides or tutorials out there somewhere? Any suggestions are welcome.

Self-signed TLS certificates

How to upgrade CentOS 6.9 KVM host to 7.4.1708 and not re-install guests

I have a Windows 7 KVM guest running on a Centos 6.9 KVM host. I would
like to upgrade the host system to CentOS 7.4.1708 without having to
re-install from scratch the KVM guest. What procedure should I use to
move the guest off the host system, upgrade the CentOS version and then

way to move the KVM Guest to a USB stick and then move it back to the
upgraded host? Thank you for your help.

Hi, guys,
I'm sorry, but wyland is a disaster for me. I do work on lots
of different software platforms, and things are just not working well.
They kind-of-work, which is the really worst condition one can have.
My new video board won't work with wyland, my pixycam software won't
work with wyland, some other graphics have changed colors, or don't
fully resolve with wyland, and finding compatible third party products
which was tough enough on linux to begin with is now virtually
impossible. The web compatible products work, like MPLABX from

I run a webservice (and a mail service). All websites run under the same
UID of <a href="mailto: ... at webserver dot"> ... at webserver dot</a>. I know, not ideal, but i cannot
change that bit. Problem is that if one site gets hacked, user apache
starts sending spam with no way to figure out which website is
misbehaving. Thus we are going to enforce websites to use SASL-auth.

Now the remaining problem is that ,even with SMTP-auth, the MAIL FROM
username sometimes is still apache.

make yum repo when we build things in koji

Hash: SHA256

I often build an rpm in koji to make sure it builds but in order to
consume that rpm using our tools most of the time it needs to be in
a yum repo somewhere. I could create a repo locally and serve it locally
or even push it to somehwere to fedorapeople. The problem is, I'm lazy.
I'll often just take the srpm from koji and import it into copr and then
consume that repo once the build has finished over there (thanks copr)

The problem with this is that it's kind of a waste of resources.

Question regarding SASL auth only over TLS in SMTP server

<Location /svn/repo>
DAV svn
SVNPath "/.../repo"
LuaHookCheckUserID "/etc/apache2/lua/hook.lua" authcheck_hook

As you can see, the authorization is done by the Lua-script. As I understand it, this can be used a full replacement to, for example Basic Authentication.

Debian Stretch reboot problem

Does anyone know a robust workaround for the bug in Debian Stretch whereby on reboot Postfix services do not fully start, and mail is not accepted? It’s recorded as bug#877992 but there seems to have been no solution through a number of upgrades.

It’s especially a nuisance right now with reboots needed to apply Meltdown fixes! Otherwise, the server would probably run for a long time without needing reboot.

Hello list,

i do some http/2 benchmarks on my machine and have problems to finish at
least one test.

System is Ubuntu16.04, libnghttp2-14 1.7.1, Apache 2.4.29, mpm_event

I start h2load with standard-params:

h2load  -n100000 -c100 -m10 <a href="" title=""></a>

first steps are really quick and i can see a progress to 50-70%. but
after that requests by h2load to server decrease dramatically.
it seems that h2load ist stopping requests to server, but i dont see any
reason for that on serverside.

I am running mysql 5.7.20 in ubuntu linux 17.10

I have 2 tables, member and status with contents like

ident, given, surname

4 jenny brown

ident year
1 2017
2 2017
3 2017
4 2017

3 2018

I want my query to return the name and ident from the member table for all
members that has not got an entry in status with year=2018

I have been working on the following query to achieve this, but it only
returns data when there is no `year` entries for a selected year.

How to ignore certificate errors when using OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER?

Hi all,
I'm straggling a bit and could really use a small push in the right

First what I'm trying to do. I want to verify client certificate using
OpenSSL. In order to make OpenSSL request client certificate during
negotiating, I'm setting


However my problem is, that that actually tries to verify the
certificate (sure, that's expected). However at the moment I don't want
it verified, just requested.

RFC: Dropping %{?_isa} hack

Hash: SHA256


Does anybody know why we are still using %{?_isa} thing?

DNF/libsolv forcefully install 64bit package for any 32bit package in
transaction. So it is not possible to get 32bit package without 64bit

So then what's the reason of using %{?_isa}? Just some old cruft from yum era?
Can we drop it? Thoughts?

Mail Queue Stall Problem

I occasionally encounter a strange problem with the mail queue seemingly
not retrying failed messages. The messages show in mailq as having timed
out and are a few days old. In the mean time other messages are going
through just fine. As soon as I run postqueue -f those messages go
through as well. I guess I can set up a cron to issue the postqueue -f
command but there is obviously something wrong. Can someone tell me how
I might trouble shoot this problem? Thanks.


I create example
how create a function
extern "C" VALUE t_ar()
 return  here_Dziwne_object;
Anybody can help me to write rb_dziwne_new(); similar rb_ary_new or rb_str_new() function?

Please stop re-adding gtk-update-icon-cache scriptlets (for Fedora)

Hash: SHA256


I'm working on removing all this cruft from all our packages (and creating
conditionals for all packages which have epel branch).

Unfortunately some maintainers adding them back with conditionals like:
%if 0%{?fedora} < 28 || 0%{?rhel} < 8

1. Those scriptlets are not needed since ~ F24 era

Writing Documentation for Fedora - Docs FAD

We are looking for interested people who are willing to write docs in person for one week. You don't have to be an existing docs team member to participate. It helps if you're familiar with AsciiDoc, but if you're not, it's easy to learn.

You'll hang out with other people interested in making Fedora documentation the best in the world. Fun will be had, but mostly it will be the sort of fun which involves sitting in a small room intensely focused on writing and editing.

Re: [users@httpd] Setup SquirreMail with Virtual Host

Sorry I was too fast.

I use the also Login Manager ("Vlogin") plugin for SquirrelMail

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

there you see that you need also Compatibility plugin version
2.0.14+, <a href="" title=""></a>

When I recall (about 10 years ago I set it up) I did not needed to
setup vlogin.

It should work together with the line in the main squirrel
config.php : $domain =

Changes to Merge-o-matic: Merges from trees with patches unapplied


Currently, MoM generates merges with patches applied, meaning that the
resulting merge is often useless because upstream files where changed by
patches, but the patches not pushed in quilt (and other stuff). I
usually worked around this by extracting the Debian version, and copying
debian/ over from the tree MoM generated.

An hour ago, cjwatson rolled out my change to make MoM create merges
using trees where patches are not applied.

Re: [users@httpd] Setup SquirreMail with Virtual Host

I have in Apache my regular vhosts, nothing specific Squirrel in the
Apache config.

I have in config.php

$domain =

And that does the trick here.

Minor problem with yum-cron

Hello everyone -

I have a minor problem with yum-cron. It has been doing this for a long time,
and finally today I got annoyed enough to want to fix it.

The problem: When yum-cron sends an email notification, the message is sent
without a date field. Therefore it shows up in my inbox as "date: Unknown"
and sorts to the opposite end of the list.

The system is CentOS 7.4.1708 with all patches.

kdesu - console output and password keeping

Hey all,

We've recently integrated kdesu into hotspot [1] to be able to record profile
data as root. This is required to get access to some "advanced" performance
counters and trace points, most notably the sched:sched_switch tracepoint
required for off-CPU profiling.

Now, my colleague originally used kdesudo which doesn't seem to be alive (?)
upstream. I've seen there's some bzr repo that the kubuntu people seem to use.
But in KDE proper, only kdesu is available.

Running login/logout scripts in Plasma


I've configured "systemsettings5" to run a login and logout script. I was running perfectly until quite recently and now neither of them run.
I logged a bug against "systemsettings5" which i think is incorrect - can anyone point me to the correct module to log this bug against?
