How to change Postfix config dir without recompilation


As I understand from the documentation to change default config dir I

Symbol aliasing issue

Tonight I am trying to figure out why gfan failed the mass rebuild.
I'm a bit confused, so I'm writing in the hopes that one of you
recognizes what is going on.

The gfan library is linked with libcddgmp. Libcdd can be built with
or without gmp support. Polymake, weirdly, wants to link with both
versions, so libcdd is built without gmp support and libcddgmp is
built with gmp support. Polymake expects the gmp version to have
symbols that are suffixed with _gmp.

Problem with SNMP rpm

Hello everyone,

Im trying to configure SNMP to use Kerberos authentication, but im having
some trouble. The standard package of snmp dont have the kerberos module
included, then i needed to create a new package. So i found the last centos
snmp source rpm, version "net-snmp-5.7.2-24.el7_3.2.x86_64", and modified
the .spec file to generate a new rpm with the kerberos module.

But in the middle of compilation process, this happens:

*checking for security modules to use... ksm usm*

*checking for krb5-config... /bin/krb5-config*

*checking for krb5...

How do you add LOGLEVEL labels to Postfix log output?


I use Postfix's per-domain debug logging a lot.

My configuration's got

parent_domain_matches_subdomains = debug_peer_list
debug_peer_list = pcre:/etc/postfix/debug_peer_list.pcre
debug_peer_level = 1
debugger_command =
ddd /usr/libexec/postfix/${process_name} ${process_id} & sleep 5

For the domains in the peer list all the debug level logging still goes into the systemd journal and I pull out postfix-specific entries with rsyslog into my main postfix log, /var/log/postfix/postfix.log

It's all good!

But it's getting noisy in there.

- the Go Draft Guidelines that says the vesrion should just be <scm><revision>
without any date.

removable setup rpm?!

Hi folks,

I found now that the setup rpm is removable from the system,
which leads to unusable system, because of missing important files,
like /etc/shadow, ....

Could you anyone say why that? I heard something about dependency hell, so
in that case, the packages should be at least protected like dnf, systemd, etc.

One possible way would be the config file for dnf in downstream, like
echo setup > /etc/yum/protected.d/setup.conf

Any better idea before I create bugzilla?

Should I be root or postfix user to execute postfix commands?

In spite of its old age, I use the "Postfix" book by Kyle Dent for ease of
basic reference. I am now stepping through configuration and I can't find
whether the postfix commands should be executed as root or the postfix user.

I think it should be as root, but would appreciate an expert opinion.

Faulty Software Updater on 16.04

For a while now, the Software Updater (which reappears daily, due to

The window does not provide a button "Show details", and, does not

Disk size on Vagrant image

I have some development projects that require a large amount of disk on the
VM, and are running into issues with the current centos/7 Vagrant box. Is
it possible to increase the disk size of the Vagrant image to 100, or even
200 GB? Since this is a sparse image, I don't believe the change will have
any affect on people using less disk space, it will only use up as much
space on the host system as is in use on the VM.

Laurențiu, what do you think?

About retiring OmegaT from Fedora

Hi all:

My first important package in Fedora was OmegaT[1]. AFAIK is the best FLOSS
computer aid translator tool available. With the time OmegaT has been
enjoying a very active development with a significant (to me) handicap: new
releases adds new features with new dependencies on java libraries not
available in Fedora. As you perfectly know, updating the package requires
to add each one of those libraries as new packages. But I can't find the
time for such that effort. That's the reason the last Fedora version is
2.6.3 and the lasts at upstream are 3.6.0 / 4.1.2.

So, I give up.

Two questions on httpd tuning


this is for httpd-2.4.26 with the mpm_worker_module. I have one practical
and one more theoretical question.

First, is there a way to determine the maximum number of concurrent
requests that have been processed at any time since the last server

Second, if I have the default configuration and I ever want to increase
MaxRequestWorkers above 400 my understanding is that I need to either
increase ServerLimit or ThreadsPerChild (or adjust both). Which should I
touch first (why :-)?

Thanks a lot in advance

X Header Logging Postfix


for incoming mails logging the X-Headers works pretty fine by using:

header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks

the file header_checks contains:
/^X-.*:/ INFO


Aug 17 16:56:31 mta01 postfix/cleanup[15387]: 3xY8Rz2rFJzDxk2: info:
header X-TEST: value from localhost[]:54582;
from=< ... at example dot com> to=< ... at example dot com> proto=ESMTP

For sending mails using `smtp_header_checks` it _only_ logs the headers
if a connection to the destination server was established:

Double Mails delivered with aliases.


I'm having sort of a strange problem with my postfix installation.

I have Local users and users with forwards. Some can have more than one forward, say we have Original-Recipient ... at a dot test<mailto: ... at a dot test> that forwards to local ... at a dot test<mailto: ... at a dot test> and remote ... at b dot test<mailto: ... at b dot test> . At first, my remote user did not get the mail at all. I suspected the remote end, but some debugging showed that it was the Postfix that simply did not deliver to remote destinations when forwarding.

Strategies for using backup MX records

This is a fairly naive and open-ended question I'm afraid but I'm sure
others here may have similar setups and thus have answers.

I run Postfix on a home server which is on all the time of course but,
as it's connected via a 'domestic' broadband service it's not a 100%
reliable connection. There are also times when I reconfigure things
(e.g. upgrade the server) that cause downtimes.

What sort of strategies are available for coping with the (rare)
disconnections of a few hours that occasionally occur?

CVE-2017-1000117 git: Command injection via malicious ssh URLs

Hi all.

I've just seen this security update (from RedHat):

'CVE-2017-1000117 git: Command injection via malicious ssh URLs'

& wondered if anybody knew when it will arrive in Apt?



Another postfix service ? Injection of original message


I'm using postfix on RHEL and looking to accomplish the following :

We have a postfix instance running were traffic from another smtp server (
smtp server A ) is being handled
Postfix now does simple header_checks and reroutes to several other smtp
servers, via sender based routing.
I believe in this is the 'smtpd ' one.

RubyKaigi "Ruby Committers vs the World" sponsored by Cookpad (travel support)

Hi ruby committers,

Cookpad Inc. is "Ruby Committers Sponsor" on RubyKaigi2017.

And we want to support Ruby committer's travel to attend RubyKaigi (only
transportation fee, no hotel rooms).

Unfortunately we don't have enough budget to invite all of committers
from outside of Japan. We can offer Japan domestic travel fee but not
sure flight tickets from foreign countries (depends on the number of
people who want to use this support).

0Day policy update


as discussed in thread [1] I would like to propose update of the
blocker process SOP page [2] regarding Accepted0Day and
AcceptedPreviousRelease. Currently we have in the policy the following

"Accepted0Day is used for cases where the fix does not need to appear
in the final frozen release, but must be available as an update on
release day. AcceptedPreviousRelease is used for cases where the fix
must appear as an update for one or more stable releases."

This statement does not fully define timing of Accepted0Day and
AcceptedPreviousRelease with regard to release date.

Disable DSN success notifications


we are using Debian 8 with Postfix 2.11.3 installed from Debian Repo and
want to disable DSN reports only for success notifications because we
are receiving many backscatter like this in the past days:


Your E-mail requested a delivery notice/return receipt for the following

< ... at example dot org>:

In the manpages we have only found the possibility to disable DSN
entirely with smtpd_discard_ehlo_keywords = silent-discard, dsn

Postfix, Kerberos and dns_canonicalize_hostname = false


I have been using Postfix with Kerberos without problem for a few years.
Our setup uses a DNS alias (CNAME) for the hostname. Let call it, pointing to the real hostname

With a default MIT Kerberos client configuration, dns_canonicalize_hostname
is true. This setting [1] enable the reverse lookup to search the hostname
given the alias. The Linux distribution used for our clients machines is
changing the default to dns_canonicalize_hostname = false.

Tab handling shortcuts across KDE applications

Hello everyone,
I'd like to try to drive a resolution for
<a href="" title=""></a>, which is about harmonizing
tab handling shortcuts across KDE applications.

In order to move forward on this, we'll need to discuss what shortcuts
we should standardize on. In the time since the bug was written in 2004,
a rough standard has emerged: ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab and
ctrl+pgup/ctrl+pgdn. This is used across all major web browsers as well
as all GNOME software.

If we can agree on that, I'll start working on individual apps to get
their defaults changed.


Potential indirect fallout due to toolchain updates

all of this is just FYI in case you run into something similar.

Recently nut became an FTBFS package, triggered by a combo of:
1. nut's build system having an error
2. nut has default hardening=+all
3. net-snmp configure options disabled -pie

Centos and CVE-2017-1000117

hi centos community,

as many of you probably have been following along, a few days ago CVE
2017-1000117 <> was
identified and redhat was prompt to release patches to fedora 25/26. I
haven't seen any chatter thus far from CentOS, so was wondering if anyone
knew the status of the patches landing in CentOS, and more specifically,
for CentOS 6 and git 1.7.x that's currently latest in the repos.

introducing fed-install: easy way to install packages from koji and other releases

Hello Fedora,

for some time, I am using rawhide as my main system. I always struggled
with installation of non-rawhide packages: installing stable kernel,
downgrading to a non-broken package, reinstalling package which is no
longer available in repositories...

I thought that somebody had to write a tool for that. To my surprise, I
haven't really found anything useful. So I wrote a simple tool to automate
installation of packages from koji and other Fedora releases.
