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

bottledaemon stop/start doesn't work if killed elsewhere


I'm using bottledaemon to run a little REST service on a Pi that takes
input from other machines on the LAN and stores stuff in a database.
I have a cron job to call 'stop' and 'start' on it daily, just in case
of problems.

Occasionally the oom-killer runs overnight and kills the process using
bottledaemon; when this happens (unlike properly stopping the daemon),
the pidfile and its lockfile are left on the filesystem, so the 'stop'
does nothing and the 'start' gets refusedq because the old pidfile and
lockfile are present.

I am trying to upgrade this machine. No luck. Software Center does the
same thing.

Re: [CentOS] CentOS 7 + GNOME : all icon themes broken after update from CR

I did the update from CR, and have some pretty serious issues.  Until I blew away (by mv to a different name) the .local and .config directory trees, I couldn't log in to GNOME at all.  After doing that, I can log in, but if I do any actual work, GNOME crashes, and abrt-cli from root in vc 2 tells me that gnome-shell got a SIGSEGV. I figure all of the updates aren't in CR yet, so I'm going to pull out my backup machine and work with it until I see if CR gets more updates.  Good thing I've got vacation scheduled for next week!I did quite a few other things in trying to troubleshoot, including a

How to get a list of C-only packages to review ?

As a new packager, I understand peer-reviewing packages is very important,
but it takes me (a lot of) time, and I do not have the necessary skills to
review any kind of packages (Go, Python, Rust, Java, Javascript, Ruby, ...
you name it)

That is why I can offer to review packages of C libs, apps, or GNOME apps,
Vala programs, or ..?, if I can be aware of such review to do.

How do I get such a list ?

Automating package maintainers responsivity check

Too often there are "non responsive maintainer" messages here.

Sometimes this is because a maintainer has lost their interest in Fedora
and left their responsibilities without communication, which means their
packages can be left unmaintained for long time in repositories before
someone notice that.

At other times the maintainer is still active, but for some reason they
are unreachable to users (email change, etc.).

I would propose some sort of automatic check of maintainer responsivity.

Proposal: Faster composes by eliminating deltarpms and using zchunked rpms instead

For reference, this is in reply to Paul's email about lifecycle
objectives, specifically focusing on problem statement #1[1].

Have rpm use zchunk as its compression format, removing the need for
deltarpms, and thus reducing compose time. This will require changes
to both the rpm format and new features in the zchunk format.

*deltarpm background*
As part of the compose process, deltarpms are generated between each
new rpm and both the GA version of the rpm and the previous version.

Latest protobuf is coming into Rawhide


I'm going to work on protobuf update which involves SONAME change from

I'll carefully check and if everything looks ok, I'll push it to
Rawhide next week and rebuild all dependent packages.

Continuous Release (CR) Repository has been released for CentOS Linux 7.6.1810 for X86_64, i386, armhfp, aarch64, power9, ppc64le

We have pushed the CR repository for CentOS Linux 7.6.1810 for following


We are currently still working on the ppc64 / ppc architecture as we are
having issues with some of the 32bit ppc mulitlib builds.

CR is basically the packages that will update your install from CentOS
Linux 7.5.1804 to 7.6.1810, minus the centos-release rpm and the
anaconda rpms.  What we will do now is take these packages and create
the new install tree and install media, then test those and finally
release them as the official CentOS 7.6.1810 release.

Fedora Server 29: when stop and start my qemu/kvm server, some service they do not start

I have setup a samba AD-DC server with BIND9_DLZ on a Fedora 29 server.

Samba is OK, all work fine when all services are started

The problem occur only when I stop and then start the server, If I
reboot, the problem do not occur.

When the server start after a stop, some services do not start and sshd
start (Luckily!) few minutes after the server is on.

The services that in my case do not start are named.service and

For gssproxy service in my case is not a problem, but named it is:
without named started, samba do not work.

Lifecycle objective - problems, solutions, and proposal

I worked with FPL Matthew Miller and our engineering manager Jim
Perrin, among others, to define the various problems we want to solve
in diversifying the Fedora lifecycle. We're seeking review and
feedback from community members. The most salient feedback will be
from those involved in the efforts we describe, but we welcome all
constructive feedback.

Here's the summary from the page, which proposes we pause the release
after F30 for these efforts:

Fedora’s singular lifecycle has been in place for almost a decade and
a half.

Giving same acls to new modular repos as that of their respective rpms repos


We got a suggestion about giving same acls of rpm when creating new module
dist-git which matches the rpm.

The plan is to give "main admin" permission to the requester of the new
module repo and then giving the same permissions as that of the maintainers
from its matching rpm repo.

I want to get some thoughts on it before adding this feature.

selinux-policy-targeted package. This factoring with help the distribution
SELinux policy maintainers as well as Gluster engineers to ship their
policies independently without getting in each others way.

graphics 1.0.1 Released

graphics version 1.0.1 has been released!

* home: <>
* rdoc: <>

Graphics provides a simple framework to implement games and/or
simulations and is designed to follow mathematical conventions, NOT
game programming conventions. Particularly it:

* Uses degrees.
* Draws in quadrant 1 (0-90 degrees).
* Right hand rule: 0 degrees is east, 90 is north, etc.

These allow simple things like Trigonometry functions to work as
expected. It means that all that stuff you were taught in grade school
still work as intended.

MySQL Encryption-at-rest capability

Hi MySQL Community,

Greetings !

I have a query regarding encryption-at-rest feature in MySQL Community Edition -

What i understand is that Encryption-at-rest is supported from MySQL-5.7.11 community edition and only on file-per-table basis which means encryption at table-level can be implemented - is that correct ?

Also, if you can help us understand the security compliance requirements (like PCI-DSS etc.) this encryption can satisfy, that would be great. Thanks in advance !

Please confirm !

EasyTAG WMA files

Hi all.

I have been through my entire music collection consisting mostly of flac
files and entered the correct metadata.

Now I am stuck on the last 3 albums which are in wma format.

When I open the directory in EasyTag the files do not show up for me to

Does EasyTAG not support WMA?

If not what program can I use to edit the tags?


Preserve Authorization header in load balacing


I have a stock httpd server on a CentOS 7 machine. I have added a file to the conf.d directory with the following contents :

<Proxy balancer://django>
BalancerMember <a href="http://django1" title="http://django1">http://django1</a> ping=5 disablereuse=on retry=5 ttl=120
BalancerMember <a href="http://django2" title="http://django2">http://django2</a> ping=5 disablereuse=on retry=5 ttl=120
BalancerMember <a href="http://django3" title="http://django3">http://django3</a> ping=5 disablereuse=on retry=5 ttl=120

So I have a load balancer to three machines.

Container updates available in bodhi

Dear all,

It is now possible to use bodhi to release a new container build. Currently
it is following the same flow as packages.

After a successful OSBS build, a bodhi update can be created. Fedpkg does
not yet support creating updates for containers [0], so you have to either
use bodhi web UI or the bodhi cli.

How to install origin 3.10?

I'm using <a href="" title=""></a> and <a href="" title=""></a> for
ansible 2.6

Installation fails early because ansible 2.6 has a dependency on python-keyczar which is not provided by either of the two above repos.

If I use <a href="" title=""></a> which does provide python-keyczar then installation fails because this origin310 repo provides python2-docker
which is incompatible with atomic-1.22

If I use <a href="http://cbs.centos" title="http://cbs.centos">http://cbs.centos</a>

Fedora Lifecycles: imagine longer-term possibilities

Hi everyone! Let's talk about something new and exciting. Since its
first release fifteen years ago, Fedora has had a 13-month lifecycle
(give or take). That works awesomely for many cases (like, hey, we're
all here), but not for everyone. Let's talk about how we might address
some of the users and use cases we're missing out on.

When I talk to people about this, I often get "hey, you should do LTS
or go to rolling releases.” As I've said before, on the surface that's
a weird thing to say, since the actual user impact of those two
different things is mostly _opposite_.

Internal Server Error - strange characters "ę" and "ł"

Hi all,

I have a server with some software on called "EPrints". When uploading some
data via am EPrints form I get an "Internal Server Error" upon submission
and the data is not submitted.

I have found that the slightly unusual characters "ę" and "ł" cause this.
When they are both removed from the form, it all works as expected. I
suspect it's a server issue rather than an EPrints/software issue, but I am
an Apache novice.

Has anybody came across this before and is able to offer advice?

CentOS Dojo @ FOSDEM

We're delighted to announce the schedule, and registration, for the
upcoming CentOS Dojo in Brussels, on February 1, 2019, the day before
FOSDEM starts.

Details are here: <a href="" title=""></a>

The schedule is still marked "Tentative" since I have not received
confirmation from all of the speakers yet, but we're almost there.

Registration is FREE, but we do ask that you register anyways, since it
helps us with venue planning and catering.

See you in Brussels!

: unexpected DC issue

Due to a DC outage where some nodes are hosted, the following (public)
services provided by the CentOS Infra are currently down/unreachable :

After contact with the DC, they're trying to restore services as fast as

Orphaning/Intent to orphan the entire pulp stack

The pulp team is orphaning the pulp 2 stack in fedora's repositories.

The upstream project is focusing the majority of it's development efforts on pulp 3, and is removing fedora support for the pulp 2 line.

This will also assist other package's transitions to python 3 only, as there have been cases where pulp prevented them from dropping python 2 in fedora.

Packages being orphaned:
- pulp
- pulp-rpm
- pulp-puppet
- pulp-ostree
- pulp-docker
- pulp-python
- python-crane

Permanently cache reverse-proxy results

The reverse-proxy receives the client's HTTP GET request, then:

1. Retrieves gzipped content from a back-end server
2. Inflates content
3. Performs many substitutions across various resources (JS, HTML, CSS, etc)
4. Deflates resulting content
