Re: mysql_upgrade then mysqld. I feel very ID-10-T PEBKAC today

Please don't bother to answer, I did figure it out, I'm sorry, for a bad
question and worse followup. Apparently I'm a spammer as well.

Apparently the error was caused by something else besides plugins in
my configuration. After carefully running --initialize from scratch
and modifying my.ini I was able to get mysqld.exe up and running just
fine on Windows 64 for MySQL 8.0 RC.

Branching 2018.03

Hi everyone,

Today I created the branch 2018.03 of the blueprints.

This will be the next and last stable branch based on Qt 5.9

The branching is most relevant for the use of the binary cache, as the
the cache on master
will now be based on Qt 5.10 and OpenSSL 1.1.0g.

If you have important changes, please commit them to 2018.03 and they
will be merged to master.

Updates of libraries, besides updates to frameworks should only go to

Have a nice weekend!



389-ds-base and freeipa on 32 bit arches

Greetings gcc maintainers!

A FESCo issue[0] has been filed due to the dropping of 389-ds-base and
freeipa on 32 bit arches for Fedora 28. This was done without a change
request being filed, so FESCo is trying to decide how best to handle it.

It seems there are some concerns about whether the C tooling correctly
handles some cases for 32-bit arches that led to the decision by the IPA
maintainers to drop support for 32-bit.

Hi there!

This is my first message here.

unresponsive maintainer procedure for konradm (Conrad Meyer)

libtool and LDFLAGS build flags injection

I've seen a fair amount of LDFLAGS injection failures related to
libtool. For the most part,
-specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-ld is dropped, leading to a
lack of BIND_NOW in the resulting binary.

Is there a way we can fix this in libtool or the auto* tools? I'm also
considering moving -Wl,-z,now to the command line from the GCC specs
file, which might help here, too.

Kubernetes support on ARM32

Hey, what's up!

I finished building all needed packages to bring kubernetes to ARM. All of them were brought by simply copying src packages from CBS and doing minor or no changes at all.

To my surprise, kubeadm ran perfectly fine, it got the correspondent arm image for each component. I went with weave for pod network layer, as it have network policy and ARM support.

Manual changes, was to symlink all files under /opt/cni/bin into /usr/libexec/cni, otherwise the pods will not find the cni plugins and doesn't start (like kube-dns stuck at containercreating).

what is the centos/elrepo policy toward LTS kernels?

i'm sure there's a simple answer to this -- i already understand
that newer kernels than the ones shipped with the official release
aren't officially supported but there is the elrepo kernel repository

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

with a mixture of long-term (lt) and mainline (ml) kernels. i assume
that the mainline kernels pretty closely track the latest kernel
release but that's not the one i'm interested in.

if i was interested in the additional longevity of the LTS kernels,
i can see that 4.4 is available.

runroot changing during the course of a rawhide pungi run

Hash: SHA256

If I understand correctly there was a new lorax build [1] that completed
at 01:11 UTC (02/23) that then made it into the runroot of a task [2] that
was part of a pungi compose [3] that started at 14:54 UTC (02/22).

I think this caused problems with the build, but that isn't really
important. The real question is: if our runroot changes during the run then
we could have some tasks (lorax imagebuild etc) that run with some versions
of software and other tasks that run with others.

How to browse to index.php OR index.html on WordPress site?

I have a WordPress site that works. If my
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/sitename.conf file is set with the
"DirectoryIndex index.php" directive, all is well, and pointing a
web-browser to <a href="" title=""></a> loads the sitename's index.php file as
it should.

But I need to temporarily put up a dummy site, consisting of just a very
simply index.html file. That's easy enough; I create the index.html file,
and then change the sitename.conf file to "DirectoryIndex index.html" and
restart Apache2. All is good.

But I still need to manually be able to get to the full-blown .php-based

Help needed with new segfaults in frame unwinding under gcc8

I could really use some help from the gcc experts.

shows failures and produces 22 core dumps, but only when run in mock

"libcryptopp update to 6.1.0 with ABI change"


I plan to update cryptopp to 6.1.0 release for f28+ later today.
This will not change the ABI number, because our package was
previously patched with a forged SONAME to only use the one number
convention (aka instead of

The good news, is that upstream accepted my patch to freeze the ABI

first, is there anything untoward in updating an installed version
of centos 7.4 with a simple "yum update"? i'm well aware of keeping in
mind the goal of stability with centos, so am unsure what the
philosophy is of pulling in new updates as cavalierly as i do with

Cisco AnyConnect Mobility Client for 32- bit CentOS 6

Package stops supporting python 2.7 in latest version, what to do now

Hello all,

python package astropy as ceased to support python 2.7 in its latest
version, 3.0.
It still provides a LTS version that supports both python 2 and 3.

As astropy packagers, we seek advice on how to manage this situation.

So the posibilities are:

1) package the version with support of python 3 and forget about python 2
2) package the LTS version that supports both python 2 and 3
3) package the LTS version for python 2 and the new version for python 3.

In the third case, wihich consider the best approach, do I need to create a
new package and go through the review process?

Adding new automount entries to a map served via sssd from AD

I've been experimenting with setting up a CentOS 7 client using
automount maps from Active Directory via sssd

I've followed the instructions given at:

and all works fine

However, I can't seem to make the client 'see' new map entries added to
the map on the AD server - I've tries reducing various timeout settings
in /etc/sssd/sssd.conf to see if that helps - e.g.

entry_cache_timeout = 60
entry_cache_autofs_timeout = 15

but map entries don't appear at all - unless I run 'sss_cache -A' to
invalidate the sssd autofs map caches

libsamplerate license change

Hi there,

version 0.1.9 of libsamplerate which I've recently built in all
branches changed its license from GPLv2+ to BSD (2-clause).


Trouble using soft link when requesting image file

WHM v68.0.29

I am trying to configure Apache to follow a symbolic link from one account's
public_html folder to another account's public_html folder. So, if Account1
has a soft link "slink":

~account1/public_html/slink -> ~account2/public_html

Given the above, assets are available via two paths: is the same as is the same as

I added the symlink, and things seemed to work, including html, css, and
javascript files, files in subfolders, etc.

Re: [CentOS-devel] CentOS for IBM Mainframes.

IBM can and does provide raw z/VM VMs at Marist or Syracuse for other
Linux distros, such as Debian. That is what you really need, not
"hardware". The discussion about donating hardware is off track.

The Debian support is completely community driven and maintained.

(solved) KDE root programs' fonts very small


I've had the problem, that graphical programs (or program parts), which run as root, had a very small font size - such as systemsettings5 or muon's settings->configure software sources window.

I've investigated it, and I found that the following has to be added to /etc/environment:


That is, the XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP environment variable needs to be set to "KDE". But this doesn't work when set in ~/.bashrc, ~/.proile or /etc/profile. Looks like these scripts aren't called by kdesudo.

Vim: removing %{_libdir}/vim from vim-filesystem


I want to have vim-filesystem subpackage as noarch (as most packages
with *-filesystem subpackage have), but dir mentioned above is
architecture specific, so I want to remove it.

This dir was added in bugzilla #1193230 as dir for plugins .so files. I
made repo queries, if any package puts files there - none package from
official Fedora repositories puts files in %{_libdir}/vim, so its
removal shouldn't influence anyone.

I'm writing this email to just let you know - if this removal will cause
problems for someone, please let me know/file a bugzilla.

Exclude paths for elfdeps dependency generator

Hi all,

I have a question regarding the the RPM dependency generator scripts.
I'm working on packaging the ROS stack [1,2] and I'm currently dealing
with the dependency generation. My goal is to wrap all Provides and
Requires for sonames because ROS does not use proper sonames (and
therefore they shouldn't be in the ld cache), but I still want to use
the information for ROS packages.

CentOS for IBM Mainframes.

Hi all,

I see that IBM LinuxONE, provides a Z Mainframe running with Linux Red
Hat, SUSE OR Ubuntu Server distros.

Do you think that could also be useful for CentOS to be another option
for LinuxONE?

Maybe a a CentOS Mainframe SIG can be created to work on this.

Thanks for your attention.

Add link to in CVE bugs?

I'm probably in the minority, but I wasn't even aware of this sight and I
found it very helpful in addressing some CVE's for one of my packages. It
provides links to bug trackers, links to other distros, and links to
commits that address the CVE.

It would be really helpful to provide a link in the CVE bugs.

Does Huawei break the license of CentOS?

Hello, CentOS team and everyone who cares about CentOS,

Huawei release an Euler OS, which is an distribution based on CentOS.
<a href="" title=""></a>

According to CentOS's statement, CentOS is distributed under the GPLv2 License.
<a href="" title=""></a>

The GPL license requires the modified version to be open-source AND
release in the GPL license, as well.

However, Huawei break the GPL license by close-source and replace the
license with their proprietary one.

How do I find it?

Bama, can you move the index to point at this ? also move the container
to be available in the registry from /centos/ namespace and confirm once
its there.

Postfix: How to run the milter BEFORE reject_unverified_recipient

Dear Lists (sorry for the xpost).

I have a milter which performs SRS Signing in case of forwarded emails
and SRS Verification of bounces.

This worked quite well, until we configured our mail plattform to also
relay emails for other domains and thus activated
reject_unverified_recipient to perform smtp forward recipient checking.

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

Well unfortunately reject_unverified_recipient is checking the
recipient BEFORE it is passed throught the milter check_recipient would
extract the real recipient from a valid signed SRS address.

So every reci

Apache 2.0 architecture

Hi All,

While Debugging apache, I encountered with following questions. I am unable
to get answers for the following questions, please help to answer them.

Q1. Startup process is reading configuration two times and creating
conftree. Why do we need to read configuration script twice? Is there any
difference in conftree after first and second read of configuration script.

Q2. When we start apache, it starts with startup process and then it
detaches and starts Master/Parent Process. After that Master Process take
control and spawn child processes.

Bug inaccesible

The website is inaccessible through IE, and is running

the installers for windows for php5.6.

Is this accepted behavior? If so, it basically breaks C++11 support on
this platform. What is already known in terms of a cause?
