Tried it and it works swimmingly.

No sound in FF or SeaMonkey

On Xubuntu 16.04, when I try to view a video on the web other than
youtube, I get no sound (goto webinar, vimeo, .flv videos).

This started last week, and it's happened before but it usually goes away.

What is going on here....

Good? Morning,

On one of my systems I have started getting the following message in
response to various commands:

cdjsys@mateo:~$ ifconfig
-bash: /sbin/ifconfig: Input/output error
cdjsys@mateo:~$ vi
-bash: /usr/bin/vi: Input/output error
cdjsys@mateo:~$

.bashrc has not changed, other commands still work (ls, tail, etc.).

This is a headless server system and is maintained via ssh. All the
current updates have been applied:

Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-64-generic-pae i686)

Any ideas???

Using amdgpu as default for all GCN cards

After seeing the improvement done on AMD support from the past years, one step is missing, enable amdgpu module as default for all GCN cards including South Island and Sea Island.
A Fedora contributor provided a special kernel with these support.

Is it possible to upload new sources of a package from a URL?

Dear all,
Currently, AFAIK, the suggested method to upload new sources for a
package is using 'fedpkg new-sources' which uploads new sources from
your local system. I wonder if there is a method to upload new sources
from a URL rather than your local filesystem? It is specially useful for
large packages.

Second Ubuntu Artful Aardvark test rebuild

The second test rebuild of Artful Aardvark was started on September 22 for all
architectures, all components (main component and seeded packages finished,
unseeded packages still building).

For arm64 and armhf the gcc-6 and gcc-7 packages are based on the Linaro
6-2017.09 snapshots.

Results (please also look at the superseded builds) can be found at

<a href="http://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170922-artful.html" title="http://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170922-artful.html">http://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170922-artful.html</a>

The test rebuild uses the release pocket only, without packages from the
proposed pocket.

Additional build failures for packages in artful-proposed (not yet in artful)

soname updates, license changes, and version updates, o my!

I would like to update a bunch of the numerical packages in the near
future. I will do the updates for Rawhide only at first, although if
everything seems stable I may update F-27 as well. Here is the
proposed list of changes. Package maintainers and co-maintainers are
CCed to this email.

arb: update from 2.10.0 to 2.11.1

cddlib: polymake used to link with both the GMP and non-GMP versions
of cddlib. We have some ugly linker tricks in the cddlib package to
support both this and other package's use of cddlib.

Setup for a dash cam.

I want to ask this question now, before I purchase a dash cam, because I
don't want to purchase one and find that it won't play with Ubuntu because
of flimsy bespoke compatibility minutiae.

Does anyone know a good hardware/software set up? I would think a dash cam
that recorded to a well known video format on a USB device that I could
mount simply by plugging it in is all I could ever need. Editing the
footage may be a concern at a later stage, but if it was, I would want to
worry about this at that later stage.

Anything like this?

Thanks.

Can I avoid apt?

I see that apt-get has been replaced by apt, sort of.

I don't like apt. I'm in the habit of doing my updates under the script(1)
command and that banner that apt puts at the bottom of the screen makes the
files unreadable.

Is there a way to disable it? Possibly by lying to apt about my terminal's
capabilities?

vmplayer for linux 12.5.7 on CentOS 7.4

So after the update to CentOS 7.4 vmplayer 12.5.7 is no longer working.

I can't believe after all the time that RHEL 7.4 has been released and
VMware has not fixed the issue and made a new release.

What is everyone doing that used the vmplayer on linux?

Thanks,

more selinux problems ...

Hi,

how do I allow lighttpd access to a directory like this:

dr-xrwxr-x. lighttpd example unconfined_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0 files_articles

I tried to create and install a selinux module, and it didn´t work.
The non-working module can not be removed, either:

semodule -r lighttpd-files_articles.pp
libsemanage.semanage_direct_remove_key: Unable to remove module lighttpd-files_articles.pp at priority 400. (No such file or directory).
semodule: Failed!

Currently, only read access is required.

Use CentOS to create a bootable Mac OS X DVD from dmg file?

Hi,

Sorry if this is only half-CentOS-related.

In my office, I'm running CentOS on all my systems (server, workstation,
laptop, sandbox PCs). A colleague brought me her MacBook Pro to upgrade
it from OS X 10.5.7 to 10.11.6.

I downloaded the 5.8 GB dmg file and now I wonder how to create a
bootable DVD with this using only Linux tools.

1. Can I simply burn this as a data DVD with K3B?

Error "corrupted or uncleanly shut down, renaming and replacing" in CentOS 7 clean install

Hi all,

I have installed two new CentOS 7.1708 (fully patched, kernel release is 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64) as virtual guests, one is using lvm and the other not and both use XFS as filesystem. In both, I see the following systemd's error after a few minutes:

systemd-journald[779]: File /run/log/journal/3abe0470ce564669b797cb4c416f1ac0/system.journal corrupted or uncleanly shut down, renaming and replacing.

Is it a bug? Or do I need to change some option in journald.conf's file? Actually, I have changed Storage's option to "volatile".

Thanks.

Requires for local install

Hello list,

I have a package with many subpackages. Some of the subpackages depend
on libraries provided by other subpackages.

When downloading with yum/dnf, the rpm's know what they depend on, and
the dnf/yum can figure out what to install to satisfy the dependencies.

gtk3 update causing havoc

On my lab systems, the automatic updates were failing because of the
problems with ipod libraries from EPEL being in the way. It turns out
that was a good thing, because when I "fixed" it, a massive set of
packages was updated, including the new gtk3.

These packages are the ones causing problems, I think.

gtk3-3.22.10-4.el7.x86_64
gtk3-devel-3.22.10-4.el7.x86_64

In the release notes, there is mention of the "giant icon" problem and
how to fix that. We understand that part.

The bad problem I see now is that Emacs and Chromium-browser, which
rely on gtk3 don't work properly anymore.

webkit on CentOS 7.4

Hello is the webkit with CentOS 7.4 compiled with ENABLE_MEDIASOURCE ?

When I call the set_media_source function with TRUE and then ask

no return TRUE if its not enabled.

However, my webpage with a video tag using webkit is not finding the

Removing unnecessary dac_override capability in SELinux modules

Hi Everybody,

I'll push builds with updated SELinux security policy into Rawhide soon,
this build will remove unnecessary dac_override capability in domains
where it's not needed. Because of this change, we're able to remove a
lot of unnecessary rules allowing dac_override, which means tightened
security in whole Fedora from SELinux POV.

This change will be part of build: selinux-policy-3.13.1-288.fc28.noarch

Tracker bug is here:
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1494520" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1494520">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1494520</a>

This may result in some AVCs related to missing DAC_OVERRIDE capability.

How to chainbuild in a build override?

Hi,

I am trying to build a chain of packages in a build override?

I.e. a series of packages: A->B->C

I set up a build override for A, and B built successfully. Now, I would
have expect building C to pickup B from the A-override.

This does not seem to apply. C fails to build, apparently because
building doesn't pickup "B" from A's build override.

Is this a timing issue (Do I need to wait)?

Notice: Check your tuned settings for a performance boost.

Last week we noticed that the default scheduler isn't being set properly
in CentOS 7. I haven't checked this for CentOS 6, but it might be worth
exploring.

The TL;DR is unless you're running CentOS 7 on a laptop or as a virtual
guest, you should probably run 'tuned-adm profile throughput-performance'

I wrote up the full details here ->
<a href="http://jperrin.org/centos/boosting-centos-server-performance/" title="http://jperrin.org/centos/boosting-centos-server-performance/">http://jperrin.org/centos/boosting-centos-server-performance/</a>

about the list ...

I noticed traffic to this list which was on order of 30
or so per day now has been practically zero!

any announcement I missed about this list (going away??)

thank you,

Combining repo/branch requests with POC changes for orphaned/retired packages

Hello all,

Until last week, I hadn't gone through the new process for requesting
repos and branches or unretiring and unorphaning packages and though I
had read the "WhatHappenedToPkgdb" page, none of the intricacies had
stuck.
After a previously orphaned and retired package got approved, I filed
a request for the repo, separate requests for each branch and after
another day of not being able to push into the remote, I realized that
I had to file a POC change request as well (my mistake, obviously).
A few days ago there was a thread here, where the reasoning behind not
automating repo creatio

prevent users from fiddling with network?

Dear Experts,

"this is system from the hell!"

Than was my first reaction when I realized that logged in with GUI (X11)
user can turn off (and on) network interfaces. Without being in sudoers
file. Wow, this is scary to see on workstations I manage centrally. Even
though I did consider local user to be able to execute the command
"shutdown" (which distinguished RedHat and CentOS from other Linux
flavors: after all local user can yank power cord off the wall).

Sorry about my little rant above.

Strange issue with CentOS7 on XenServer

Hello,

I stumbled upon a strange problem with CentOS upgrade on XenServer
environment, and I would like to ask if someone has this issue as
well:

XenServer 7.1, the VM is CentOS7, with kernel
3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.x86_64 running in PV mode
When I upgrade the kernel (running with yum update kernel), after
reboot in the VM console it says "dracut-pre-udev[212]: modprobe:
ERROR: could not insert 'dm-mod': Cannot allocate memory" and after a
while it drops to dracut shell

If I boot from from an old kernel with the updated kexec-tools/dracut,
it's fine.

Anyone experiencing this issue?

Regards,

/var/run/... being deleted :((

Hi,

what keeps deleting files and directories under /var/run? Having them deleted
is extremely annoying because after a reboot, things are suddenly broken because
services don´t start.

automating paas auth to CBS

Hi Clint,

Recently I was looking into automatically building some ceph packages in
CBS, and I was curious how you're doing automatic CBS builds with the paas user.

I'm guessing you've generated the paas CentOS FAS x509 cert with
centos-cert, and then you upload that .centos.cert file into some
Jenkins instance? Is that ci.centos.org or something else?

I see mention of the account creation @
<a href="https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=11465" title="https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=11465">https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=11465</a>, but there's no mention of
how long-lived this FAS x509 cert is.
