Excel shared spreadsheets on Samba share

Hello everyone

I 'm trying to find what it happens on my Samba AD servers especially
with shared spreadsheets, my personal opinion this feature on Excel is
crap and unreliable but many people use it, how does Samba currently
behave with this ? Is someone experienced any problem with this ?
Frequently happens changes made by other user are lost the spreadsheet
opens as read only , the shares are all using vfs_acl_xattr module to
mimic NTFS permissions, clients are all windows machines versions 7 and
10 , i upgraded samba 4.3.11 to 4.5.7 but both have the same behavior.

SELinux policy to allow Dovecot to connect to Mysql

I have been getting the following on my new mailserver:

Apr 7 10:17:27 z9m9z dovecot: dict: Error: mysql(localhost): Connect

through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13) - waiting for 25 seconds
before retry

They go away when I setenforce 0.

So I googled dovecot mysql selinux and the only worthwhile hit was:

Should removing old kernels trigger the "reboot required" message?

I was just using apt-get and did `apt-get autoremove` as recommended
to remove an old set of kernel packages (linux-image-4.8.0-44-generic,
linux-image-extra-4.8.0-44-generic, linux-headers-4.8.0-44). That
still leaves the 4.8.0-45 and 4.8.0-46 sets installed, and the system
is running -46 already (I rebooted after apt-get installed it a couple
of days ago).

This has set the reboot-required files:

$ cat /var/run/reboot-required*
*** System restart required ***
linux-base

So I know that next time I log in (GUI or ssh) it will tell me it
needs a restart.

F27 System Wide Change: Switch libcurl back to OpenSSL

= Proposed System Wide Change: Switch libcurl back to OpenSSL =
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/libcurlBackToOpenSSL" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/libcurlBackToOpenSSL">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/libcurlBackToOpenSSL</a>

Change owner(s):
* Kamil Dudka <kdudka AT redhat DOT com>

libcurl in Fedora currently uses the NSS (Network Security Services)
library for TLS and cryptography. After implementing this change,
libcurl will use OpenSSL instead of NSS.

== Detailed Description ==
In order to make even smaller Fedora base images, it was proposed to
switch libcurl back to OpenSSL.

Lock Screen in Gnome and using keyboard

Hello,

I need to reconfigure Gnome in CentOS for avoiding that a normal user
could lock screen using task bar option and/or "Super L" key (Windows
Key + L). How could I configure Gnome? I need to do that in several
computers, so I can't do "login" in X environment of each computer, but
I need to reconfigure executing from command line (multiple SSH
connections).

Thanks.

The status of our Vagrant images for Hyper-V

Hi there,

I created the first experimental Vagrant images for Hyper-V on March 14,
after the CBS upgrade. They seem to be functional, but they generate a
lot of disk I/O during "vagrant up", according to Thomas and Michael. I
think we end up with 40GB files as disk images - this is the maximum
size of the virtual hard drives we create, but most of that is empty.

How to boot a win 7 hard drive that was in Ubuntu system?

I have a system that has 3 hard drives. Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 14.04 &
Windows 7. Haven't used Win 7 for a long time, but now I have a sudden
need to do so.

When I booted win 7 it installed updates and failed on SP 1. Googling
says a possible cause is SP 1 can't deal with grub. A suggested solution
was to unplug the linux drives and boot with just windows present. When
I try that I get the message: BOOTMGR is missing.

All the solutions I have found require that I use a Win 7 install disk
to fix it, I didn't get one when I bought this system many years ago.

healpix major update

Hi,

healpix (astronomy related library) hasn't been update for long time (current packaged release is from 2009). Therefore I'll update to the current release 3.31 (from 2016) in Rawhide and F26 within next days and take care about required rebuilds (only package is skyviewer). API did not change afaik, but ABI did.

Roundcubemail 1.1.8 possible bug?

I am installing Roundcubemail on Centos7-arm

roundcubemail-1.1.8-1.el7.noarch

The installer web app creates a config.inc.php to save within the
/etc/roundcubemail/ directory. It warns that:

"Make sure that there are no characters outside the <?php ?> brackets
when saving the file."

Thing is there is no ?> at the end of this. It is left out. So I got
to add that myself.

switching libcurl back to OpenSSL and providing the libcurl-minimal subpackage

In order to make even smaller Fedora base images, it was proposed to switch
libcurl back to OpenSSL. The Fedora Crypto Consolidation project, which
motivated the switch of libcurl from OpenSSL to NSS ten years ago, is now
deprecated and libcurl is the only package that pulls NSS as its dependency
into the Fedora base image.

Critpath - questions

Hi,

some questions about Critpath, I was not able to find, looking at [1]
<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Critical_path_package> and [2]

TL;DR: why is MariaDB Critpath in F26 and Rawhide.

I mean, this doesn't really show, what I expect:

critical-path-lxde critical-path-xfce critical-path-gnome core
--enablerepo-rawhide

I mean, who the hell would

Automatic start of systemd units after installation

Hey everyone,

there is a systemd .socket unit in of the packages I maintain. It
already has a preset in the default preset configuration so it is
properly enabled after the package got installed.

However what I am wondering about is, if it is expected that I need to
reboot the system or manually call

$ systemctl start my.socket

to get the unit properly started.

partition table

Sir/Madam

I was switching a RAID disk over to Ubuntu 16.04 Server

The RAID is attached via a LSI SAS 9280-8e card

When I go into webBIOS then it appears the virtual drive is working ok

But when the system boots and I try to access the partition

all I see is

unrecognised disk label

so I guess I am asking how to recover the disk label

I do not want to lose the data on the raid drive

Any help advice would be sincerely appreciated

libreoffice vs. PDF fillable forms

In addition to all my other problems, the font size is stuck on 24.
I can change it, but whenever I so much a take a deep breath,

How do I stop this?

So far, all my searches have given me stuff about making fillable forms,

Locale setup for non-shells

Hi everyone,

At the moment users logging into Fedora on a text terminal (console, SSH,
etc.) get their locale environment variables (LANG, LC_ALL, etc.) set up by
the shell they use. I.e. the shell ultimately sources the /etc/locale.conf
file. This works fine in most cases.

However, if the user has his/her "shell" set to any program that is not one of

Problem reinstalling Xubuntu 16.04

I have a spare HP NW9440 laptop that I had running 14.04 for a while.
I replaced it with an 8710W a few years ago (that was recently stolen
and replaced) and hadn't used it in a while. I installed 16.04 on it
as a backup laptop for a good friend of mine, then it sat unused for a
while again. Then I took out the drive with the intent of adding it
to my newer replacement notebook. It seemed to work fine there

Now I can't install on the NW9440. It failed part way through
installation on the replacement hard drive I put in.

Xorg problem

I updated to Centos 6.8.
Every thing is working, except Xorg does not startup.
When I look at top, it seems that Xorg keeps trying but not
succeeding to start.
Any idea what the problem might be?

Broken libglvnd in Rawhide

Hello list!

Looks like someone broke libglvnd in Rawhide. I noticed it, when I got
flooded with "dependencies failed to resolve" notifications from Koshei.

I already filed an issue [1] with Releng and explained how to fix it.

Cheers,
Björn

Reviving a stale Package Review request

I would like to revive a stalled Package Review request created by
someone else, but I am unsure how to proceed. I've commented on the
request and added an updated SPEC and SRPM, but I'm not sure how to
proceed from here. Should I change the blocker from FE-DEADREVIEW to
FE-NEEDSPONSOR? (this is my first Fedora package). The review in
question is here:

If I'm on the wrong mailing list, please redirect me.

F27 System Wide Change: Switch libidn-using applications to IDNA2008

= Proposed System Wide Change: Switch libidn-using applications to IDNA2008 =
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/IDNA2008" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/IDNA2008">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/IDNA2008</a>

Change owner(s):
* Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos <nmav AT redhat DOT com>
* Robert Scheck <robert AT fedoraproject DOT org>

The proposed change is about deprecating libidn, which supports
IDNA2003, and switch all applications using libidn, to libidn2 2.0.0,
which supports IDNA2008.

== Detailed Description ==
Internationalized domain names exist for quite some time (IDNA2003),
although the protocols describing them have evolved in an incompatible
way (IDNA2008).

gparted corrupts when shrinking ntfs

When I use Fedora 25 Workstation Live plus gparted to shrink an ntfs partition,
then the result is corrupt. This is reproducible on a minimal install
of Windows 10 build 1510 (a raw system image dump fits on 2 DVD),
such as commonly available on inexpensive refurbished PCs. Running CHKDSK
immediately afterward detects and fixes the corruption for me.
Where/how should I start to investigate: which software component, etc.?

Help, my RAID won't start

I've been fooling with this for a while. Some things are fixed, but the
darned thing still isn't right.

I've been following advice from a combination of sources, because nothing
I've found is complete, but that makes it harder to be sure I'm on the
right track.

So here it is: a core i-7, 32GB RAM, 6 internal hard drives, 4 of which are
4 TB. Three of those four are for my RAID, which I want to set up as
RAID5.

M.2 PCI-E card

Hello list,

My instinct says the vast majority will "just work" but I'll ask anyway.

I need a low profile PCI-E card that allows for up to 2 M.2 SSD drives
that is known to work with the stock kernel in CentOS 7.

Can anyone recommend one?

Thanks

Compiling custom "vmlinuz" PXE kernel?

Hello CentOS list, I still need help.

Does anyone know how I would go about creating my own "vmlinuz" PXE
kernel? I'm still trying to get the NUC6CAYH to load to a LiveCD, and I'm
getitng nowhere with Intel.

My company wants to do hundreds of these per month; we're not above paying
for professional help at this point.

My current line of reasoning is to get whatever specialized memory and CPU
drivers the NUC6CAYH requires to recognize properly and bake them in to a
custom vmlinuz PXE kernel that loads the initial ramdisk image.
