Self Introduction: Dylan Stephano-Shachter


I have just submitted my first request to maintain a fedora package. I am a developer out of Boston, MA. I currently work for Nasuni. I have been using Fedora for a long time and I have been packaging rpms for about 2 years now. I already have some contributions to existing packages. I am, as of now, looking for a sponsor from the packaging group.

The package I submitted is insights-core, the python data collection framework used in Redhat Insights.

I am excited to start contributing in a more significant way to the Fedora project.

best practice lookup table perormance - non hashed file


we're publishing lookup tables through our control git repo but hashing all
tables before commiting them to git is cumbersome. What do you recommend?

several postfix servers are getting same lookup table from central

we're using it this ways:

smtpd_sender_restrictions = check_sender_access

mail-addy or domain OK

with 600 entries so far.

I'm aware of <a href="" title=""></a>

but none of them look simple. we like it plain and simple.

Looking for help; How to upgrade from php5.2 to current version


Please can you offer some advise or help.

My father and I had a website running php 5.2 however this website has now closed down and php 5.2 is no longer supported via the hosting package. We brought a new domain to run our php code before we knew php 5.2 is no longer supported.

The php code was written for us by one of my father's ex-work colleagues and unfortunately have lost contact, so we are a stuck at the moment!

32-bit support.


I spotted a post by Canonical about support for 32-bit:-

*"Thanks to the huge amount of feedback this weekend from gamers, Ubuntu
Studio, and the WINE community, we will change our plan and build selected
32-bit i386 packages for Ubuntu 19.10 and 20.04 LTS."*

Short story: I have been and will continue to test Ubuntu/Lubuntu on actual
32-bit hardware.

I have been running a Computer Refurbishment Project for the benefits of
members of Contact Morpeth, a mental health charity.

Yeah, about that: ssh in about 4 times a second.... Things sped up with he

ruby rookie needs help with "ri" command

RE: i386 architecture will be dropped starting with eoan


I'm just wondering that, instead of totally dropping i386, why not just
drop the ones that are unnecessary from the repos, like VLC, Vim, Nano,
Plasma, etc.  Since Ubuntu doesn't even have an i386 based distros
officially, those aren't needed to be there anymore.  That way, you only
had to trim it down to the ones that are necessary for us who need the
legacy stuff without the workarounds, like Wine?

Best of both worlds, right?


dkim updating keys

Friendly Greetings,

I am going to update my email server's Dkim keys for the first time.

I can go to the original install instructions, and figure out how to
update them. What I can't find in that original tutorial is the

1. Do I delete/remove old key and references thereto? Namely, in the

Thanks in advance.


Mixing compilers


I'll try to break my earlier question about building rkward frontend /

backend process using MinGW (in order to solve compatibility
nightmares). Questions:

Re: TLS 1.3 on postfix (fixed)

Apologies for multiple emails to this list for the same problem.

Some internet searches got me to the right solution.

One of the other posters was correct; it was a certificate issue. Reissued my cert on my postfix SMTP mail gateways.

All seems to be working now. Gmail defaults to TLS 1.2

I saw some posts that TLS 1.3 still has issues with OpenSSL v1.1.1 and postfix 3.3.x

I am using Ubuntu Linux and the latest postfix which is 3.3.0 unfortunately

Greylisting -- current recommendations?

Fedora 31 System-Wide Change proposal: No More i686 Kernels

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

== Summary ==
Stop building i686 kernels, reduce the i686 package to a
kernel-headers package that can be used to build 32bit versions of
everything else.

== Owner ==
* Name: [[User:jforbes| Justin Forbes]]
* Email: <a href="mailto: ... at fedoraproject dot org"> ... at fedoraproject dot org</a>

== Detailed Description ==
The i686 kernel is of limited use as most x86 hardware supports 64bit
these days. It has been in a status of "community supported" for
several Fedora releases now. As such, it gets very little testing,
and issues frequently appear upstream.

Fedora 31 System-Wide Change proposal: The GNU C Library version 2.30

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

== Summary ==
Switch glibc in Fedora 31 to glibc version 2.30.

== Owner ==
* Name: [[User:fweimer|Florian Weimer]]
* Email: <a href="mailto: ... at redhat dot com"> ... at redhat dot com</a>

== Detailed Description ==
The GNU C Library version 2.30 will be released at the beginning of
August 2019; we have started closely tracking the glibc 2.30
development code in Fedora Rawhide and are addressing any issues as
they arise. Given the present schedule Fedora 31 will branch after the
GLIBC 2.30 upstream release.

xfreerdp and font size


how can I increase the font size of Windows 10 sessions when accessing them
via xfreerdp? The fonts are way too small.

No logging possible from local pipe

Im using local to invoke a piped command with an alias like:

http_forward: "|/usr/local/bin/..."

from inside that bash script I try to log with systemd-cat but this results
in "Failed to create stream fd: Permission denied"

I have tried to use postlog instead, but it just dont emit anything to

invoking postlog from the shell works fine, e.g "sudo runuser -u nobody --
/usr/sbin/postlog -t sometag <<< somemsg"

Whats going on here ?

Rejecting mail if LDAP lookup returns empty


We are setting up Postfix to be an on-premise mail lookup and forward service for a cloud-based mail filter service (ProofPoint). Our campus uses LDAP to route email from a public alias ( to an internal mailbox (e.g., or external destination such as yahoo or gmail.

The issue we are seeing is that the lookups are working just fine, but if an email is sent to a bogus public alias or a valid alias without a defined routing address in LDAP, Postfix then attempts to pass on the address to the next hop instead of failing the lookup and bouncing.

ABRT CLI rework


As we are all well aware, ABRT has two CLI tools (abrt-cli, from
abrt-tui and abrt, from abrt-cli-ng). For a long while now, we in the

surviving. In that vein, I would like to invite you to share your
gripes, use cases, wishes as comments on

"sportdb-import gem - New football.db Match Importer for CSV Packages

Fedora 31 Rawhide 20190621.n.0 nightly compose nominated for testing

nightly compose if you have time.

sportdb-import gem - New football.db Match Importer for CSV Packages (incl. England, Deutschland, and More)


I've added a new (quick) importer for datafiles and packages
in the comma-separated values (csv) format to the sportdb library /
tool family [1].

For example let's import all datafiles for all seasons (from 1888-89 to today)
for England [2]:

require 'sportdb/import'

SportDb.connect( adapter: 'sqlite3',
database: './eng.db' )

## build database schema / tables

## turn on logging to console
ActiveRecord::Base.logger =

pack = './england' )

Happy da

Dynamic BuildRequires on Fedora 29/30: Possible!


All applications written in Rust are shipped to stable releases via
modules which includes building all crates (libraries), applications
themselves and throwing away all crates (since those are linked

However, since we are using dynamic BuildRequires[0] as of yesterday
it is not possible to build those RPMs on F29 and F30 anymore because
their RPM does not support this feature.

I was thinking about way how to solve this problem so I have created a
module "rpm" with stream "4.15" which is building RPM from the master
dist-git branch.

Testing memory and wiping hard drive before installing Ubuntu


I am refurbishing a Toshiba Satellite C50-A-1JM laptop that was donated to
the Computer Wombling Project. This is the approach I usually take:-

1. Test memory with a memtest86+ CD-R
2. Wipe the hard drive with dban CD-R
3. Install Ubuntu or Lubuntu from DVD

Sadly, steps 1 and 2 don't work any more. The system currently has Windows
and Ubuntu on the drive and I am trying to wipe the entire drive to ensure
the donor's privacy.

I can get to a GRUB prompt. Maybe I could type in some kind of GRUB command
to boot from a CD-R - what command(s) would I have to use?

Possibly Unresponsive Maintainer: lef


When working on the Java Stack for the Stewardship SIG, I've come
across multiple packages that are officially maintained by lef, but it
looks like he stopped contributing to fedora at least six months ago
(I checked mailing lists, bugzilla, bodhi, koji, and his
dist-git repos).

There are some [0] open bugzilla bugs assigned to him

Possibly Unresponsive Maintainer: gil


When working on the Java Stack for the Stewardship SIG, I've come
across multiple packages that are officially maintained by gil, but it
looks like he stopped contributing to fedora more than two years ago
(I checked mailing lists, bugzilla, bodhi, koji, and his
dist-git repos).

There are multiple pages [0] of open bugzilla bugs assigned to him,
and none got any response from him for years, so I think I can safely
skip opening another bug for one of his packages ...

He also should have received multiple emails from me during the last
two months, when I asked maintainers depen

Issues changing an ubuntu package from native to non-native?


I would like to change a source package in ubuntu from native to
non-native. The main reason is that I personally have a hard time
dealing with native package, specially one that spawns multiple ubuntu

While I could perhaps be convinced to keep it as is, or learn how to
properly deal with such packages, I think the question is still valid:
is there a precedence or best practice to follow when converting a
native package to non-native? And can that be done together with an
SRU as well (the SRU itself being driven for other reasons, and this
change would just piggy-pack on it)?

rawhide status - 2019-06-19

Greetings everyone.

I thought I would send out a rawhide status email to catch everyone up
to whats going on there. I should have sent it sooner, but I was on
vacation, then in a set of meetings, etc.

The last rawhide compose that completed was 2019-06-09 (10 days ago now).

There's been a number of reasons for this. In order to accommodate some
fedora 31 changes ( dynamic build requires ) and epel8 work we needed a
koji with some backported patches as well as newer mock and createrepo_c.

So, first step was to get armv7 builders off Fedora 27 where they have
been stuck due to a kernel bug.

RFC: CentOS 8 Repository Structure

Hi Folks,

While we cycle through some of the remaining builds I'd like to start a discussion about what the CentOS 8 repo structure might look like. We need to think about what the repos look like on-disk, and how this might impact the mirrors.

Currently the thinking is this:

3 "core" repos:

- BaseOS (contains a small packageset of the base distribution)
- AppStream ("where the modules go")
- Devel ("-devel packages and other tools")

These descriptions are very much an oversimplification, but it's an ok model to work with.
