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?

CentOS 6 SELinux question: inbound ssh.

OK, after beating my head against the wall for an hour or so, I finally
figured out why I could not ssh from a MacMini (running MacOSX 10.11.6) to my
Linux Desktop (running CentOS 6), using the amandabackup account with public
key authentification.

Bug 1742953 - No Screensaver/Powerdown after Inactivity at LUKS Password Prompt [FutureFeature]

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post. I need to start somewhere.

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

Description of problem:
The Plymouth LUKS password prompt will wait FOREVER for me to type in a
password without powering down the monitor or blanking the screen. This
leaves me vulnerable to screen burn-in if 1) there was an unexpected
reboot like a crash, or 2) another OS (which shall remain nameless)
rebooted after update, but the dual-boot started in Linux instead of
the other OS.

How reproducible:

Licence of GCompris in ubuntu snaps

I just installed a fresh ubuntu and noticed that the GCompris licence
in the snap package was "Proprietary". After some search, I think it's
because it's set to "unset" in the snap package:
<a href="" title=""></a>

Does anyone know who should I contact to set it to GPLv3+? There is
also a "Is there a problem with gcompris? Report this app" button that
I can contact if nobody knows.

uncompressing lzw payload

i'm reading about mod_deflate where it can handle gzipped content sent and
automatically uncompress the payload. i have embedded clients that want to
send compressed data over the wire due to bandwidth constraints. they can
only support LZW compression due to library/memory restrictions.

as i read, gzip algroithm can handle lzw content, but before i setup a POC
to test lzw content decompression via apache mod_deflate, can anyone
provide insights?

How can I get KMail to produce a core dump?


Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release: 10

Lately, KMail has been segfaulting at almost every invocation.

recode-3.7.1 in Fedora 32 will change a soname

I'm preparing an upgrade of "recode" pacakge from 3.6 to 3.7.1 version.

Because it changes an ABI and a license (from (GPLv2+) to (GPLv3+ and
LGPLv3+ and BSD and OFSFDL); the library itself from LGPLv2+ to
LGPLv3+)), the upgrade will be performed in Rawhide only.

postfix milter body chunk length


I was wondering why the transfer of a 100mb mail to my milter
application was slow, i found the bottleneck in the body chunk transfer.

The maximum packet length seems to be fixed to 64k, it would be great if
we could make that configurable in postfix (uint32 is possible).

Missing arches on EPEL 8 for LibRaw?

I assume this is because LibRaw is available in RHEL but only for x86_64

So I'm assuming there is some sort of procedure to build only for s390x and
aarch64 for EPEL?

SIG Content to remove for the 7.7.1908 release

For all the c7 SIGs, if you have content that you want removed (to make
inactive) when we create the new 7.7.1908 tree, please let me know here
what needs to be removed.

If all files in a specific directory can be removed, you can just list
the directory.

You will also obviously need to make any changes to your
centos-release-* files to remove those file locations from your repos.

After we release 7.7.1908 ..

Postfix for three domains on one host

I want to use my single VPS for three distinct domains. Simple for
webservers. I would also want to be able to send and receive email on
the three domains using Postfix. I understand there is postfix-multi.
Everything I have read so far uses separate IP addresses for this
scenario. Most VPS providers are loath to assign more than one or at
most two IPV4 address to a VPS, due to the global shortage. I have been
unable to get three at Linode.

Not just subdomains, but quite distinct ones.

How can I transfer photos from my IPhone to my desktop computer?


I am having problems accessing photos from my IPhone.  I am using Mint
with the Mate GUI. Here is what I have done.

1. I connected my IPhone to my desktop computer with a USB cable.

2. My desktop shows the IPhone has been mounted.

3. On my IPhone, I entered the password when prompted.

4. On my desktop, The PIx program starts and shows the pictures
directory where the photos (on my desktop computer) should be put.

5. When I press OK, nothing happens.

It looks like the security on the IPhone or maybe Linux (or both) is
interfering with the transfer.  What should I do?

ppc64le Rawhide VM issues


I'm trying to track down a build error in my package that appears only on
ppc64le architectures in Rawhide. As I have no access to ppc64le machines,
I'm attempting to boot a VM with qemu. But when I get into the system many
of the more useful commands aren't working properly. Like "dnf".

My qemu boot command is currently:
qemu-system-ppc64 -m 2048 -smp 2 -machine pseries -cpu power9 -hda <qcow2
image from download server> -cdrom <cloud-init image>

I can login to the system, run some basic commands such as "cat", "ls",
"cd", etc.

Taskjuggler COPR and its relevance


It somehow slipped my radar that rubygem-taskjuggler had been retired.
Even though upstream isn't exactly active, the current git HEAD builds
fine. I've set it up in a COPR here now:

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

The updated spec and sources are here on my fork:
<a href="" title=""></a>

Given that upstream isn't active, I don't want to un-retire it just yet.
I'm not proficient in Ruby either so if something breaks and upstream
doesn't fix it, I won't be able to do much either.

Create cookies using Rewrite after successful mod_authn_dbd login


I am using Apache 2.4.29 on Ubuntu 18.04 and I am migrating a site
that has a directory that was originally protected via login using my
own CGI. As part of this migration I have changed this to use dbd via
pgsql and this works as expected, prompting me to login when I request
the directory in the URL.

My original CGI created JavaScript accessible cookies when the user
was authenticated as they are needed by the pages to work.

Note that it will take a while before the essential packages are rebuilt, so

Hey guys, I just took over some postfix gateways (my primary MTA is exim,

quite sure how to solve. Unfortunately using an old postfix version
(2.6.6), I do want to get that upgraded and up to date but wont be able to
do that in the near future due to other business priorities at the moment.

It turns out that the Bugzilla branching script was not correctly

re: Better interactivity in low-memory situations

I'm not a developer, nor do I pretend to understand the nuances of memory management. But I signed up for this list just to say "thanks" to all the devs and others that are finally discussing what I consider to be one of the biggest problems with Linux on the desktop.

My experience with desktop Linux distros with SSDs when a few processes start to leak memory, or if I launch a new program when my system is right at the limits, is a full system hang where only the mouse occasionally moves jerkily, and I can't switch to a virtual terminal.

Let's revisit the FTBFS policy


Recently, a couple hundred packages were retired from rawhide (Fedora 31 at that
time) based on the Fedora Failed to Build From Source Policy [1]. From various
reactions over several threads it seems this policy is not ideal. This is an
attempt to collect feedback and make the policy better serve Fedora's needs.

Fedora has a policy for a long time that can be simplified as:

1. Mass rebuild for Fedora N happens by releng
2. Packages that fail to build get open bugzillas by releng
3. Packages with NEW bugizllas are orphaned after 8 weeks with weekly
reminders by releng

Alphabets Benchmarks - How many ways to unaccent a text string? Turn AÄÁaäá into AAAaaa. And the winner is...


let's try out half a dozen ways to unaccent a text string? [1]

The challenge - What's the fastest way to turn `AÄÁaäá EÉeé IÍiíï
NÑnñ OÖÓoöó Ssß UÜÚuüú`
into `AAAaaa EEee IIiii NNnn OOOooo Ssss UUUuuu`?

Let's benchmark and the winner (so far) is... Spoiler: `gsub` .

NON_ALPHA_CHAR_REGEX = /[^A-Za-z0-9 ]/ # use/try regex constant
for speed-up
def unaccent_gsub( text, mapping )
text.gsub( NON_ALPHA_CHAR_REGEX ) do |ch|
mapping[ch] || ch

Can you find a faster way? Show us.

Happy data (and text) wrangling with ruby. Cheers.



I noticed in the most recent release of psqlodbc_11_01, the version of OpenSSL that is packaged is 1.0.2R.

Are there any plans for updating this to OpenSSL 1.1.1, as 1.0.2 will be reaching end of life by this year?

Additionally, if we were to simply remove the LIBEAY32.dll and SSLEAY32.dll files from the installation, would there be any problems at runtime?
Our system is currently not using/require SSL encryption.

Gating branched?

Now that we are branching Fedora 31,
I wonder what are the plans for F31 gating before the "Bodhi activation point".

Will we only gate rawhide and let f31 builds go directly to the f31-pending ->
f31 tag?

Or the procedure on rawhide and branched will be +- identical?

(I've been told on IRC that "currently" there is no gating for branched, but I'd
like to know the plan beyond "currently" as well.)

Re: [users@httpd] How can I simplify this URL to just the hostname with rewrite rules?

Have you tried “Redirect permanent “/q3/app\?service=external/EmployerPages:DudeLogin” “”

Darryl Baker (he/him/his)

How can I simplify this URL to just the hostname with rewrite rules?

So - I'm the administrator of a Java application which has a URL similar to the following:

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

Can't have them change it, and there's no way to simplify.

I'd like to redirect the URL above to:

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

I've tried a few rewrite rules by trial and error, unsuccessfully.

I also attempted to use generators such as <a href="" title=""></a> and <a href="" title=""></a>.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

efivar and mokutil long standing FTBFS

efivar and mokutil fail to build from source. They have been retired, then
unretired and they still fail to build from source.

Following the policy:

I kindly ask the maintainers to rebuild them or orphan them if they cannot take
care of them.

"Bodhi activation point" no longer makes sense

Should we rename "Bodhi activation point" in the schedule?

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

Bodhi is now active for rawhide and branched as well.

What about "Bodhi updates-testing activation point"?

Fedora 32: Deprecating WEXT


We're considering removing support for Wireless Extensions from
NetworkManager in Fedora 32 time frame.

A more modern Wi-Fi configuration API, cfg802111/nl80211, has been
available since 2007 and maybe there's no point in carrying the
maintenance burden anymore.

check IP before permit_sasl_authenticated

I'd like to block certain IP's from attempting to authenticate on my submission port.

This is what I have now:
#port 587
submission inet n - n - - smtpd
-o smtpd_recipient_restrictions=permit_sasl_authenticated,reject
-o smtpd_sasl_auth_enable=yes

Is it possible to configure to use an access list before the permit_sasl_authenticated?

Where the access file contains:
# 550 reject 550 reject

Is this right?

freeIPA version vs RHEL's

I wonder if anybody might version of freeIPA in RHEL?

DHCP and no network for long time

Odd thing happened... A centos 7 install set for DHCP. boot the box no
network connected.
I let it like this overnight. I come in this morning and plug in the
network. Is it supposed to get a DHCP address at that time ?

Unresponsive SIG Leader

I have tried to join the Amateur Radio SIG twice, once in January, and
again recently in August. The owner, Bob Jensen [0], does not seem to be
around any longer in the Fedora community or the amateur radio community as
his FCC license has expired and is no longer valid [1]. I would like to
know how, if possible, to take over as the leader of the group. It hasn't
gotten much love in the last several years and it shows...

Proper way to keep service enabled when updated from sysv to systemd?


I packaged xe-guest-utilities with a systemd service for Fedora.

But there is an upstream rpm package that include the same service as
a sysv one. And the
service is enabled with the 'Default-Start' info in the init script
after '/sbin/chkconfig --del xe-linux-distribution'.

And when people update the package from upstream one to the Fedora
one. Since the service changed to a systemd one. The service is then
disabled by default without regard to the sysv service.

That surprises end users.

Fedora 31 Mass Branching Starting Today

Hello All,

Fedora 31 will be branched from rawhide today as per the Fedora 31
schedule[1]. The process takes about a day and everything should be ready
by tomorrow. You can still be able to build packages normally until then,
but after the mass branching rawhide and F31 will be separated.

We will send another email once the branching is done.

Silently doing Obsoletes of an active package and doing so even

I am not sure if it is written anywhere, but hardcoding

There is specific reason why we have --buildtype=plain in %meson

Menu Editor

Is it possible to add a new menu item to the Application launcher?

I can easily see how to add a submenu. For example, the first menu is
"Development" and I could add a submenu under that but that's not what I
want. What I'm looking for is "add menu" rather than "add submenu".

Installing kopete-data removes all kde-l10n packages

I Kubuntu 19.04 if I install kopete and kopete-data I am no longer able
to install any kde-l10n packages.

aptitude why-not kde-l10n-engb
i kopete Depends kopete-data (= 4:18.12.3-0ubuntu2)
iBA kopete-data Breaks kde-l10n-engb (< 4:18.04.0~)

If this is a bug, where do I report it?

Ubuntu to Arch complete data migration

I want to move all my files and folders from a Ubuntu laptop to another
brand new computer (ubuntu OS). I have localhost with web server (Apache,
PHP, etc). I want to clone everything including users.

My questions
1- what is the easiest way to do this?
2- do I need to partition hard-drive of new PC exactly as old one?
3- will root and other user credentials stay the same?

Any other suggestion appreciated,

What other external trackers would you like added to Bugzilla?


The new "external trackers" bits in Bugzilla leaves out quite a few
commonly used ones. I filed a ticket[1] and was asked to contact the
admins. Before I do so, I thought I'd post here so we can make a list of
trackers we want to get added.
