binutils 2.31.1-4.fc29 - 2.31.1-7.fc29 produces broken ELF binaries

Hi All,

This is a heads up about a bug which I hit Sunday, if you're
seeing any weird crashes with recently build packages then
this may very well be the cause.

I've filed a ticket with rel-eng to get affected packages
automatically rebuild:

<a href="https://pagure.io/releng/issue/7670" title="https://pagure.io/releng/issue/7670">https://pagure.io/releng/issue/7670</a>

Here is the text of the ticket for those of you looking for
more details:

"As discovered last Sunday and discussed here:
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1609577" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1609577">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1609577</a>

A bug was introduced in binutils starting with version binutils-2.31.1-4.fc29 which causes it to put the sections in ELF binaries it produces i

License tags of i2c-tools corrected

I reviewed the licensing of i2c-tools and found the License tags to be
inaccurate.

Making Fedora secure - Package exit policy for security

Hi All,

I was asked to bring this issue[1] to the developer community before
FESCO makes a decision.

In several instances[2] there exists packages in Fedora, in which
package-maintainers did not patch security issues, for multiple reasons
including 1. non-responsive maintainer 2. issue hard to patch 3. no one
cares?

This is a risk for the distribution, our users and community as a whole
and not to mentioned bad PR :)

I would like to propose the following:

1.

How will I know I can upgrade my server?

<a href="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BionicBeaver/ReleaseNotes" title="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BionicBeaver/ReleaseNotes">https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BionicBeaver/ReleaseNotes</a> mentions that when the
upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04.1 is available, I should run `sudo
do-release-upgrade` to upgrade my server. But how will I know when the
upgrade is available? Is there a tool or mailing-list for that? Because
it makes it seem that I should run the command by hand until the update
appears.

Packages needed for Triple O Container Builds

Hello  all,

We've been trying to enable tripleo container builds in the centos rdo
community and quickly ran into some problematic RPMs. Specifically,
centos-release-ceph-luminous and centos-release-opstools. They were
problematic for altarch but have recently been patched to work with the
$contentdir var. I set up a test to see how they install, linked below
[0][1], and found that centos-release-storage-common would also be
needed. Adding that seemed to allow everything to install properly. The
test also installs ceph, as the centos-release-ceph-luminous package
just enables a repo.

Intent to retire python-svg

Hi all,

I intend to retire python-svg. Tests are failing on Python 3.7 for a
reason I cannot figure, there was no commit during the last year and
according to `repoquery --whatrequires python2-svgwrite` and `repoquery
--whatrequires python3-svgwrite` nothing uses it anymore.

If you want to maintain it, please step up.

Issues booting centos7 [dracut is failing to enable centos/root, centos/swap LVs]

Hello,

I'm having a strange problem booting a new centos7 installation. Below some
background on this. [I have attached the tech details at the bottom of this
message]

I started a new CentOS7 installation on a VM, so far all good, o/s boots
fine. Then I decided to increase VM disk size (initially was 10G) to 13G.
Powered off the VM, increased the vhd via the hypervisor, booted from
CentOS livecd, selected "recover my centos installation". Then I used the
following sequence of commands to make the new vhd size "visible" to the
o/s ...

- ran fdisk /dev/sda and deleted partition 2.

Canonical's Point of Contact on KDE's Advisory Board.

Hi all,
I wish to announce that I am passing on the position of Canonical's
Point of Contact on KDE's Advisory Board to my colleagues:
- Alan Pope (popey) - <a href="mailto:alan. ... at canonical dot com">alan. ... at canonical dot com</a>
- Martin Wimpress (Wimpress/flexiondotorg) - <a href="mailto:martin. ... at canonical dot com">martin. ... at canonical dot com</a>

My responsibilities in Canonical have moved further from desktop and
KDE/Qt, and I found I had little time to contribute here.

Alan and Martin are in a far better suited to liaising with the KDE
community and had already picked up lots of the slack.

I hope you'll give them the same warm welcome as I received!
Thanks all
-Gerry

Self Introduction

Hi everyone,

My name is Iñaki Ucar, and I am based in Madrid, Spain. I have been a
happy Fedora user and advocate for many many years (since Fedora Core
2). Now I would love to start contributing to the project as a package
maintainer, so I am seeking a sponsor.

I am package maintainer for the R Project since 2015, so I am
primarily interested in this ecosystem, which has grown spectacularly
in recent years. To start with, I have submitted my first package,
'simmer', for which I am the upstream maintainer.

Active but unresponsive maintainer: Peter Lemenkov

Hello,

Peter Lemenkov [0] is an active packager (he submitted a new erlang
build to bodhi an hour ago) but I was unable to contact him for the last
two months.

I first "encountered" him when he used his rights as provenpackager to
merge some PRs on the elixir package, without thoughts for the ongoing
discussions. He even submitted builds to bodhi but we *never* got any
message from him. I'm now trying to contact him over RHBZ #1434779 [1]
but am still unable to get a response.

Does anyone know how to contact him ?

How can one change dircolors globally?

I suspect the answer to this may be that you can't, but I'll ask the
question anyway.

Is there any sensible/easy way to change the defaults for all users
set up by dircolors in Ubuntu? From reading the man pages for
dircolors and dir_colors it would seem that it's not possible.

On Ubuntu (and any Debian derived system) dircolors doesn't read
either of /etc/DIR_COLORS or ~/.dir_colors so one can't change colors
by creating/changing these files.

koschei build gone?

Hi,

I've filled this bugzilla: [0] and I clearly remember seeing a failed
build in koschei - I've even linked it in the BZ [1].

Yet the URL now returns 404.

Last build in koschei for python3 is 3 days older than the bugreport.

What happens? Are certain builds deleted for various reasons? Or are we
loosing some data by accident?

Orphaning winswitch

Dear All,

I haven't used winswitch for a few years now, and haven't really got
the bandwidth to maintain the package, and so I plan to orphan it in
the coming week. Winswitch is developed by the same person as Xpra and
provides a front end to Xpra as well as other remote desktop
applications.

gedit snippet not working on new system

I have these snippets Ive used for years now.
This one is not working.

tab+t = $(date + "%H%M ")
simply puts in the time for me and the other

tab+q = [QUOTE] $0 [/QUOTE]
is for quotes.

I tried creating a new snippet.
I tried importing the one that works from my laptop.
I just copied over the xml file.
Still doesnt work.

When you hit tab+t, you see the t on screen and then the
tab backspaces over it. No time is seen.

Upgrading 16.04 LTS to 18.04 LTS

I am trying up upgrade from 16.04 LTS to 18.04 LTS.  I have the updater

changed the version upgrade notification to all versions.  No reference
to 1804.

License of dreamchess

Hi,

let me inform about the license of dreamchess.
Upstream dropped GPLv2+ and clearly indicates now to want GPLv3+ within LICENSE.txt file.
It should not be of any further matter as there has been COPYING and COPYRIGHT files (replaced now with the single file LICENSE.txt only), the spec file included a comment about GPLv2+ or GPLv3+ and it had GPLv3+ in License tag anyways since this package exists.
Although, some source files still have a BSD header, therefore the dedicated comment about dual license is kept in the spec file.

F28 balsa email client can't send email

I just upgraded from F26 to F28. The balsa email client is not able
to send mail through my server because it doesn't try to authenticate.
This is probably because it doesn't STARTTLS, likely because of
incompatibility between libesmtp (which balsa uses to send mail) and
openssl 1.1, which results in libesmtp building without ssl support.
Supposedly this is fixed in Rawhide, but not in F28.

Trouble installing Ubuntu 18.04. Machine unable to reach archive

Im installing Ubuntu 18.04 as a kvm guest using virt-manager. Because I want a lean install I seem to be forced to use the mini iso and the text installer so I can get a bone bare server base system without desktop. I assign a static address, gateway, and subnet as assigned by our network admin but the installer can not reach the network to get packages or additional installer components. The correct “virtual” network “cable” is selected for the machine. How can I figure out what’s wrong.

Problems with qemu-img when generating Vagrant images

Hello everyone,

we switched from using qemu-img from CentOS 7.x to qemu-img-ev from the
Virt SIG several months ago, to allow us to generate Hyper-V images.

My attempts to build Vagrant images are failing the automated tests
since the beginning of July, apparently due to corrupt filesystems.

Where is the source code for specific build in koji ?

Hi there
Im looking for the git repository for the build <a href="http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22500" title="http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22500">http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22500</a>

I saw at https://git.centos.org/summary/rpms!kubernetes.git but this repo is not matching with the build that im looking for.

The build was made for Centos...

Finding memory usage

I have a CentOS 7 server that is running out of memory and I can't
figure out why.

Running "free -h" gives me this:
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache  
available
Mem:           3.4G        2.4G        123M        5.9M       
928M        626M
Swap:          1.9G        294M        1.6G

The problem is that I can't find 2.4G of usage.  If I look at resident
memory usage using "top", the top 5 processes are using a total of
390M.  The next highest process is using 8M.  For simplicity, if I
assume the other 168 processes are all using 8M (which is WAY too high),

Introduction

Hi I'm Jeff Mitchell and I volunteer for 2 charities in my city (currently unemployed). I've frequently used Linux since 2007 and I'd like to become a Fedora package maintainer. I have two desktop PCs and I have Fedora 28 XFCE on my older system - I use this system to experiment on. I've read most of the guides on maintaining packages, now I just need a package to maintain. Last year I failed a programming course and I'm not sure if I ever want to do programming as a job.

centos-git-common: Add requirements.txt

Adding requirements.txt file that provides
the non-default python dependencies
requires for the centos.git.repolist.py .
This ease the the creation of the virtualenv.

cmake segfault on 32-bit arches on Rawhide

I just tried a rebuild of a package in Rawhide, it worked on most
arches, but failed on armv7hl and i686 (our only 32-bit arches).

Is decoupling Apache + PHP into separate nodes possible?

<preamble>
I have deployed Linux/Apache/PHP (node1) + MySQL (node2) with Security
Groups (AWS) or iptables controlling who can connect to the MySQL
server. In topology terms -- a 2 Tier architecture. In AWS - one
can deploy several such instances behind a ELB. Each LAP instance
talks to a MySQL RDS. The LAP instances are either mod_php or
PHP-FPM. OS -- CentOS, Ubuntu.

dokuwiki packagers unresponsive

Hello.

I'd like to fix some issues (including security problems) which are for
a long time present in dokuwiki package. Maintainers of the dokuwiki
however seem unresponsive.

Does anyone know how to contact maintainers?

Thanks.

Guideline change: glibc malloc as the C/C++/Rust allocator

I would like to request a change of the Packaging Guidelines, advising
packagers not to interpose malloc.

The reasons are:

* We have resources to support glibc malloc, but not for other mallocs.
* Other mallocs do not follow ABI and provide insufficient alignment.
* Choosing a malloc is workload-dependent and forcing a non-default
malloc takes options away from system administrators.

This does not concern other allocators, such as Boehm GC or APR, only
the standard malloc interfaces.

Comments?

Thanks,
Florian

Problem with definition of slist in CFEngine

Hey folks,

I have a problem with the definition of a variable of type slist in
CFEngine on

# uname -a ; cat /etc/redhat-release
Linux policyhub.example.com 3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 22
21:09:27 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)

I'm not sure if its valid to ask CFEngine questions on this mailing
list, but as far as I'm running on CentOS I hope that it is okay.

I'm logged in as user
