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?

Connecting WD MyBook (WhiteLight) TB drive via Router

Good morning,

I have recently moved from a system based firewall/server to a router.

Router is a Belkin N600DB wireless router. I have been able to get
everything up with the exception of my MyBook (worked before as a
dedicated host using NFS to access it). The router fails to find it when
I plug the network cable directly into the router.

What am I missing...

Belkin claims no support for Linux. Suggested I try one of the other two
popular OS.

SPF + outside backup MX relay = redelivery failures: Help requested

I am running Postfix with opendkim, rspamd, pypolicyd-spf, and DMARC.
This is working fine for mail delivered directly to my domain. However,
if my net connection goes down and mail gets queued by my backup MX at
another domain (which I do not control), then when my connection comes
back up and the MX relay attempts to redeliver all the queued mail,
delivery fails due to SPF failures like this one, because the sender's
domain has not authorized my mail relay to send mail on its behalf.

Ruby-based SAML

Is there a gem implementing the SAML standard the way PHP does (<a href="" title=""></a>)?

Here is my use case: Customer X wants to access a remote application (managed by a cloud vendor) through federated SSO. However Customer X doesn’t have any means to support SAML on their on-premise server. Alternatively, I could use OpenID Connect (OIDC), but I couldn’t find appropriate Ruby support for that either (and I don’t want to use PHP!).

What to BuildRequire for __cxa_demangle?


The elfutils tools can demangle C++ symbols through the standard
_cxa_demangle interface. The elfutils tools are written in C and
so simply link with -lstdc++ to get access to __cxa_demangle.

There is a BuildRequires: libstdc++-devel in the elfutils.spec.
But it looks like that isn't enough anymore to pull in
to build against.

It looks like that is provided through a symlink in gcc-c++.
Should the elfutils.spec just BuildRequires: gcc-c++ instead of

Fedora crda To wireless-regdb Upgrade

A mostly "behind the scenes" aspect of the Linux wireless LAN
(IEEE802.11) subsystem has changed upstream with some system-level
effects. Replacing an existing package with a cleaner but functionally
equivalent package is an attractive option, but there are questions
regarding the update path, how signing the the regulatory database
should be handled, and how to communicate these changes outward to the
greater community.


Usage of Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum is generally regulated around
the world.

Build error for boost-regex on Mac

Hi Hannah and KDE windows,

I’m getting this build error when I try to install boost-regex using the standard blueprints in craft on Mac,

fatal error: 'cstddef' file not found"
/Users/rlancaste/AstroRoot/kstars-craft/bin/bjam: b'# include <cstddef>'
/Users/rlancaste/AstroRoot/kstars-craft/bin/bjam: b' ^~~~~~~~~'
/Users/rlancaste/AstroRoot/kstars-craft/bin/bjam: b'1 error generated.'

I’m fairly sure that this file is already on my system, so I think it is a linking or blueprint error with craft.

Any ideas,

Output from 'groups' is suddently different to /etc/group

How would I know? I was just looking for something like VirtualBox, to
play around with a different distro. All in user space.

Now I would think twice about installing all that stuff.

As far as I remember, Synaptic did not tell me that I had installed
something ground-breaking, or that I had to log off or reboot
afterwards. Or are you expecting end-users to read the installation log?


Resigning from LXQt maintainance

Hi all,

as some of you might have recognized, Fedora's LXQt is quite outdated
(we have 0.11, current one for some weeks now is 0.13) and also needs
some rework with respect to theming and the package set (upstream
restructured packaging a bit with respect to common files). When I
joined the Fedora LXQt effort, my job was the creation of the spin while
other maintainers took care of most packages. Unfortunately the core
packager left Fedora. I did the whole update once, but at that time it
was mostly just about bumping the version and rediffing the patches.

Output from 'groups' is suddently different to /etc/group

Yes, but how would I know that the package I just installed has changed
group membership?

mwrap is designed to answer the question:

Which lines of Ruby are hitting malloc the most?

mwrap wraps all malloc-family calls to trace the Ruby source
location of such calls and bytes allocated at each callsite.
As of mwrap 2.0.0, it can also function as a leak detector
and show live allocations at every call site.

provided by the build dependency - libattr-devel. In addition are
installed glibc-headers [5].

This difference was surprising to me:

=> #<Pathname:foo/bar>

Is there a reasonable explanation that I can’t think of for this behavior?


Unsubscribe: <>


I am putting to together a config for both RH6 and RH7 systems. RH6 used Apache/2.2.15, RH7 uses Apache/2.4.6.

I understand that in 2.4.8 SSLCertificateChainFile is deprecated and the intermediates should be appended to the file that SSLCertificateFile points to.

Can 2.2 and < 2.4.8 work properly if the SSLCertificateChainFile in the config is NOT used and instead the intermediates are appended the file that SSLCertificateChainFile points to as you would in 2.4.8 and greater.

Key book re-writes?

A few Ruby books are aging; the pickaxe book is one favorite that could use
an update. Is there any push to update Key Ruby books, maybe in time for
Ruby 3?

Or am I just wishing harder than usual?

Meeting summary

Is there any way I can deploy cPanel web hosting control panel with Microsoft Exchange 2016 groupware behind one static public IP?

Good evening from Singapore,

Is there any way I can deploy cPanel web hosting control panel with Microsoft Exchange 2016 groupware behind one static public IP? Or do I need 2 static public IP addresses at the minimum? With Exchange 2016 groupware taking up HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, POP3, POP3S, SMTP, and SMTP/S ports, I personally don't think I can deploy cPanel behind the same public IP as Exchange.

Please advise. Perhaps you have a brilliant idea.

Auto-filing of FTBFS bugs gone wild

Hi All,

I've just got 20 bugs auto-filed against packages which I co-maintain
and that is just for packages starting with the letter 'a'.

A quick check shows that these are all caused by a missing
BuildRequires on gcc / g++ related to:

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

I'm not sure if this means that the FTBFS script has been run before
all the automatic fixing which was planned for this was in place;
or if this means that the automatic fixing missed many many
packages, but either way something needs to happen here, the amount
of work now being pushed onto pa

Mutiple IP/Multiple SSL

Cannot determine if it's possible to run multiple SSL with individual IP/SSL site on same server(ubuntu). We run multiple domains and would like to stack these SSL sites if it's possible.
No issue multihoming the NIC, no issue multiple domains/server on port 80 - only issue is apache finding the correct SSL cert.

Logwatch inconsistency

Hi all,
In my logwatch config I clearly state only too report on Yesterday.
The funny thing is that in the MailScanner section the number of mails
scanned is different thant th number reported in the postfix section to
be put on hold.
Ik I grep the Requeue statements in the MailScanner logfile this is
exactly the same number as the scan result of Hold in the postfix
logfile and is equal to the number reported by logwatch in the
MailScanner section.
How come postfix reports a lot more being put on hold than the real

Understanding popd pushd usage in RPM spec file

Hi, I need some help in understanding how popd and pushd work in rpm

Today I started working on enhancing darktable spec file [1] in order to
add basecurve-tool and noise-tool subpackages, and I had some
difficulties in understanding popd/pushd usage in that spec file.

Good Morning Everyone,

Avoiding sending backscatter

Hello everyone,

I have a postfix server (with amavis and clamav) that receives emails for
other domains. When it gets a mail for a non-existent email, it accepts it
anyways because it doesn't have the list of valid email addresses.

In other words, I'm generating backscatter and I want to avoid it.

One solution could be to never return a mail delivery notification for
external email, but I think that's not recommended, isn't it?

I'm already discarding all emails with viruses and using blacklists.

Does anybody knows any other solution?

Thanks in advance,
-- Diego.

Audit-3.0 pre-release coming to rawhide


This is to let everyone know that audit-3.0 pre-release is coming to rawhide.
The big change that is prompting this email is that there is a config change
that people might need to be aware of. One of the improvements is to drop
audispd (realtime audit event dispatcher) and merge its functionality into
auditd. This will eliminate one source of overflow messages and decrease the
time from event occurrence to plugin seeing it.

dnf history - change in how rpmdb checksum is computed

Hi everyone,
The DNF team is currently reviewing DNF compatibility with YUM 3 and we'd
like to get feedback on this one:
<a href="" title=""></a>

rpmdb checksum is a checksum of all installed RPMs
It has no cryptographical value, it's just an unique ID of RPMs on a system
before and after each transaction and it's used in dnf history info and dnf
history list.
If checksums of 2 following transactions do not match, DNF indicates that.
This happens if a user installs an RPM by hand via rpm command.

Then `dnf history list` looks like:

The improved 18.04.1 LTS Server Installer - Call for testing!

Download from: <a href="" title=""></a>

With the release of 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver the new server installer
was introduced. At the time, it still lacked certain critical features
which have now been implemented.

For 18.04.1 we are adding support for LVM, RAID, VLAN, Bonds to the
new installer. The functionality and UI are all in place. It has not
yet been refined, thus I expect minor UI changes or improvements to
these features for Cosmic release.

License tags of lm_sensors corrected


I've reviewed the licensing of lm_sensors and found the License tags to
be incorrect, so I corrected it.

Previously the License tags of all the subpackages was:
LGPLv2+ and GPLv3+ and GPLv2+ and Verbatim and Public Domain

Now the License tags read as follows.
lm_sensors: GPLv2+ and Verbatim and MIT
lm_sensors-devel: LGPLv2+ and Verbatim
lm_sensors-libs: LGPLv2+
lm_sensors-sensord: GPLv2+ and Verbatim and MIT

The actual license of the package did not change in the recent past,
only the License tags were corrected.

* Remember password until you logout
O Remember forever

Intent to orphan js-jquery1 and js-jquery2

It is my intention to orphan js-jquery1 and js-jquery2. Does anybody want
to take them over?

These very old versions of jQuery have security issues that I do not have
time nor expertise to maintain. Upstream's last patch for either of these
occurred over 2 years ago. Everybody should be using jQuery 3 by now
(js-jquery). Anything older is insecure and unsafe.

Personally, I think they should be retired, but I don't know (or have time
to check) to see if that would cause problems for anybody.

PSA: KDE CI: How-To for stable branch switches being picked up

Hi KDE project maintainers,

tl;dr <a href="" title=""></a>
now tells how to make sure KDE CI picks up your new "stable" branch

Some days ago I found that a few products on KDE CI in the "Extragear" section
had not seen builds of their stable branches for some months (I remember at
least Krita & Kexi), despite being under good development.

Reason was that for those products a needed step had not been done after the
"stable" branches were switched to new ones:
manually triggering an initial build with the new branch

- how to configure postifx in a secure network to receive emails from users
and forward it to a DMZ server
- how to configure a postfix server in a DMZ for outbound SMTP traffic.
