submission rate limit advice

going by the counter "Connection rate limit exceeded: 125", what values
should I alter?

Old mysql patch - is this useful?

I've attached the patch (it's very old, but at a glance it doesn't look like

Running a command at startup

On a support forum, I was told that to turn off my board's blue led run:

Well, this does not survive a system reboot.  So I was told:

So of course, CentOS is past using rc.local and recommends:

So can someone point me to how to make this into a simple systemd service?

blender: Not linking against libGL

I'm working on updating the blender package to build against OpenImageIO
2.0.3 in rawhide and have worked through the API changes but the build
still fails when linking blenderplayer due to undefined references to
functions provided by the libGL library.

I checked the last good build in koji and as expected I see "-lGL" for
blender and blenderplayer but not in my mock builds.

Does this have something to do with with the new mesa packages or a cmake
error with the FindGLEW module?

I'll keep poking around but hopefully someone knows the answer :)


maximal_backoff_time not properly applied on a multi instance server


I'm dealing with a strange issue on a postfix server running multiple instances. I've set a maximal_backoff_time of 8 hours in the instance's I can check it was actually applied with postconf:

$ sudo postmulti -i postfix-p26-o151 -x postconf | grep -E 'queue_lifetime|backoff_time'
bounce_queue_lifetime = 5d
maximal_backoff_time = 8h
maximal_queue_lifetime = 3d
minimal_backoff_time = 10m

However, when I check the logs for this instance, I can find multiple occurences of deferred emails moved back to the active queue with the default maximal_backoff_time of 4000s.

xdg-desktop-portals & kubuntu


I thought I should point out that the Ubuntu Desktop team is looking
into SRUing a new xdg-desktop-portals and gnome frontend to the
supported LTSes. It probably would be a good idea for Kubuntu to also
SRU the frontend for Plasma systems. Desktop portals are a central
part of integrating confined bundles (e.g. snap, flatpak) into the
host system, without them the user experience suffers tremendously.

How to avoid re-generating Pagure API keys all the time?

From time to time I have to submit a ticket with 'fedpkg request-repo' or
'fedpkg request-branch', and I have feeling that I have to regenerate the API

How do you work-around this requirement to re-generate the key all the

Heads Up: libmodulemd 2.0 coming soon to a Rawhide near you

The libmodulemd library, used by the Module Build Service, libdnf,
fedmod and other tools is going to be updated this week to version
2.0.0beta1. While this includes a soname bump, the Fedora packaging
will include a compat-libmodulemd1 (and python3-compat-libmodulemd1)
subpackage that is fully compatible with the 1.x API.

Future of MongoDB - Legal Issues with SSPLv1

Hi folks,

as you may already know, MongoDB is now licensed under SSPLv1[1] as of
October 16.
Since SSPLv1 doesn't meet Fedora's license requirements, I'd like to
start a conversation
on MongoDB's future in Fedora.

Theoretically, we could maintain versions prior to October 15,
however, the new license
doesn't allow backporting (due to incompatibility with AGPLv3 - see
related thread[2] on
fedora legal list).

Review request: plasma-pass

Hi folks,

back in May I wrote a Plasma applet that serves as a GUI frontend for the pass
password manager [0]. I blogged about it [1], but then somewhat forgot to make
a release etc. Recently I started getting some emails from packagers where to
get a tarballs so I think it's time to get some translations in and start
doing official releases. Thus I'd like to ask for a review for inclusion in

The way pass works is it has a directory in which each password is stored in a
PGP-encrypted file, the name of the file is the name of the password.

Orphaned packages need new maintainers (will be retired in 2 weeks)

The following packages are orphaned and will be retired when they

sure that the package should be retired, please do so now with a proper

_performance_build and -O3 package builds

Downstream, we had a separate set of builds flags for certain packages
and used -O3 there, targeted at POWER (both ppc64 and ppc64le), for
increased use of vectorization presumably.

I don't think this was ever upstreamed to Fedora (the downstream changes
were in the redhat-rpm-config package). I don't recall seeing a
corresponding Fedora change.

autopkgtest verision deployed on production infrastructure updated

Hi all,

I've just pushed a bunch of commits to our deployed branch of
autopkgtest¹ that bring us up to date with upstream, where the
developers have done a lot of work. Many thanks to them. The most
interesting thing to subscribers to this list will be the changes -
mainly additions - to the list of known test restrictions. I've pasted
the diff of README.package-tests.rst below.

I don't currently expect any breakage to result from this, but if you
notice anything weird please reply here or come to #ubuntu-release and
we'll take a look.


/usr/include/GL/glext.h:467:10: fatal error: KHR/khrplatform.h: No such file or directory


Got an e-mail from Koschei [1] with a notice that camotics package is starting to fail to build. The reason for this seems to be that something that used to pull mesa-libEGL-devel doesn't do so anymore.

/usr/include/GL/glext.h:467:10: fatal error: KHR/khrplatform.h: No such file or directory

Since /usr/include/GL/glext.h belongs to mesa-libGL-devel and not camotics I think it would be more appropriate to put the dependency there.

SSL not working after unwanted server migration


I had my personal postfix/dovecot server, configured for some of my
own domains, running without problems on a linux VPS. For reasons
totally out of my control, I had to migrate everything to another VPS
two days ago, without notice, (details at the bottom if anybody is
interested...), and consequently without any possibility to do the due
homework and testing *BEFORE* the migration, so please be patient...

The problem: since software and operating system versions are not the
same as before, certain settings stopped working.

Contributing to KDE is hard because of its build architecture

Please, don't take it as a rant, because I got over my frustraction a
week ago, and just writing it in the hope to point out something that
other developers might not see.

I'm not using KDE myself (i3wm here), but 2 weeks ago I stepped into my
never-ending journey of trying to use KMail, failed it (of course,
filled bug-reports along the way), and then figured "Okay, I'm a
developer — why wouldn't I just go fix the app".

And then I got into a trouble: building KMail. I have most recent stable
KDE, but upstream KMail requires its dependencies to be also built from

Mirroring PHP via IPv6

Dear PHP team,

I'm trying to mirror PHP via IPv6 and it does not work.

Is it an issue from my end or the main servers are not enabled to rsync via IPv6?

If not enabled, is there a strong reason for this?

Thank you!

zlib compress bit-identical output on different archs - goal or non-goal?


during packaging of a new python-img2pdf version I noticed that 2
unit-test cases fail on aarch64.

This is caused by zlib.compress() yielding different output on aarch64
and x86-64. Which triggers the failure because the unit-test case just
compares the result after compression (it's a small PDF that contains a
compressed image - and that PDF is compared against a reference PDF).

I checked the aarch64 compress output and it's valid zlib data, i.e. I can
decompress it on both aarch64 and x86-64 and get the same decompression
result (i.e.

Building KDE (phonon-vlc) fails


please forgive my ignorance. It has been ages since I last built KDE from

Using kdesrc-build, the phonon-vlc package fails on cmake with the following
-- Checking for module 'libvlc'
-- Found libvlc, version 3.0.4
CMake Error at cmake/FindLIBVLC.cmake:106 (message):
Could not find LibVLC

Found, but not found? Maybe it is looking for a different version?

libvlc-dev is installed on Kubuntu 18.04.

Any idea on what I am missing here?
