Policy regarding service preset enabled (e.g. performance co-pilot)


is there a policy regarding auto-enabling/disabling an installed systemd

I'm asking because installing the dstat replacement[1] in Fedora 29
resulted in 3 additional always running systemd services[2] and 2 open

In contrast, after installing postgresql the postgresql systemd service
has vendor preset disabled (i.e.

firefox-60.5.0-2.el7.centos.x86_64 and Netflix

Hi all,

Since the last upgrade to firefox-60.5.0-2.el7.centos.x86_64 on my
CentOS 7, it is no longer possible to watch Netflix with my Firefox, it
always says that "Firefox is installing components needed to play the
audio or video on this page. Please try again later."
But nothing happens and Netflix is no longer readable with Firefox...
I tried downgrading to firefox-60.4.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64 and al is now
correct with Netflix...
Anyone had experienced the same behavior ?

%py3_build should accept options

Just want to get others opinions before filing a bug...

Currently %py3_build expands to:

$ rpm -E %py3_build
/usr/bin/python3 build --executable="/usr/bin/python3 -s"
sleep 1

This does not allow passing of any options that I can tell... For now I'll
just paste this into my spec file.


CentOS 7, rsyslog and redis

Is there a sensible way to get rsyslog to talk to redis on CentOS 7.
The official way is to use the omhiredis plugin, but that doesn't seem
to exist in the CentOS 7 repositories? (It's how I do it on my Fedora

gcc-c++ and libatomic -- link issues


I maintain the hpx package and it uses std:atomic and when I install
gcc-c++ it seems that libatomic is not a dependency of the gcc-c++
package. My program fails, because it can not link against libatomic. Is
this the supposed behavior to install libatomic or should libatomic
become one of the dependencies of gcc-c++?



signing status

Just wanted to update everyone on our current status.

As you know from the other thread:

* The mass rebuild happened and finished.
* The mass rebuild side tag was merged into the f30-pending tag
(to make sure everything was signed).
* In the middle of the night our autosign box stopped processing.
* The next morning this was noticed and a request for a replacement
motherboard was sent.
* Since that was going to take a day, we setup another machine to do
* That machine started processing the backlog, but also stopped
processing a few times (waiting on koji).
* Finally we set back

Games spin needs owner or will be dropped

The owner of the Games spin[1] has indicated[2] that he will not be

I will request it be dropped from Fedora 30. If you would like to
adopt this spin, please comment in the Pagure issue[3].

C7, enable an abrt for a daemon

I've mentioned here before that gssproxy is crashing all over the place
with a SEGV. However, there's no /var/spool/abrt/... when it does. How do
I enable the daemon to give me an abrt with information? I'm just not sure
of what the right word is for systemd, so online searching isn't always

Thanks in advance.

Where to define GRUB_DEFAULT


where do I define GRUB_DEFAULT? /etc/default/grub sounds like "this is
the defaults, change it somewhere else". I read somewhere about
/etc/defaults/grub.d/ which does not exist. /etc/grub.d/ esists but
seems to be something else.

So where would I specify e.g. GRUB_DEFAULT?

CentOS 6 and 389 Directory Server

I'm not sure it this is the correct location to ask these questions, but ...

In the past when I worked for a living the place where I worked had
thousands of RHEL Linux servers on various hardware, but the access was
controlled by Windows Active Directory and a third party piece of
software that was the middle-man between the 2.

Now that I no longer work I'm trying to build a CentOS Linux environment
where the access is controlled by 389-Directory Server.

Changing the rp_filter default in Ubuntu from strict to loose?

Hey there,

The new network-manager in disco does connectivity checking
per-device/connection type which doesn't play nicely with th rp_filter=1
default that procps sets in Ubuntu

The details of the discussions in
<a href="" title=""></a>
but a summary is

'it uses libcurl and binds the HTTP request to the device, using the
SO_BINDTODEVICE socket option. rc_filter=1 rejects all incoming packets,
if the sender wouldn't also be reached via that device.


Hi All - I have a systemd service file to start my application.

Part of my service file is:
ExecStart=/path to start
ExecStop=/path to stop

This works fine "normally".

However - when I do a "yum update; and reboot" my script detects a kernel
change and now does a number of "recompiling" steps for drivers and such
before starting my application.

Qt file dialogs under GNOME and MATE


While ironing out the kinks in the upcoming version of Molsketch with
the upstream developer, we noticed that we weren't seeing the same
dialogs. He is on KDE (OpenSuSE) and I was testing in GNOME and MATE.
Molsketch has an option to save a single molecule/structure with the
.msk extension. Under KDE, the extension appears in the file dialog
and is automatically appended to the file name. This does not happen
under GTK.

He installed Fedora in a VM and ran some tests:

Rawhide build fails because pulling in F29 depedency instead of F30 dependency

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

This says it's failing because:

DEBUG BUILDSTDERR: - nothing provides ocaml(Migrate_parsetree_driver) = 296ee343a6c2118db57c2ee01f0e5e88 needed by ocaml-ppx-tools-versioned-5.2-1.fc29.x86_64

But that's because it's using the wrong package.

HEADS UP: I plan to correct "python3 build" calls without proper flags


due to <a href="" title=""></a> it is no
longer correct to just call `python3 build` or `python3
build_ext` in spec without setting the proper flags (for arched builds with
Python extension modules at least).

That is without setting both CFLAGS **and** LDFLAGS.

I've grepped the usage and skimmed trough specs, destining the following list of
packages that fail to properly set both flags.

I intend to fix the packages using my provenpackager rights during next week. I
plan to push directly.

Radeon graphics card

Hey guys I'm new at Linux and I'd like to know if there's a way to check if Kubuntu is using my graphics card. I have a Radeon HD graphics card and on Windows I could check that just by going to system info, but now on Kubuntu I don't see it anywhere. Neither on the driver manager or in the graphics section of system info. Hope someone could help me out with that. EOF

CentOS 7.6 update with gettimeofday()

In my app compiled on another linux I am getting
Assertion 'clock_gettime(clock_id, &ts) == 0' failed at
src/shared/time-util.c:34, function now(). Aborting.
when calling gettimeofday() on an update CentOS (did not fail in 7.5).
Is it possible that the update has changed the size of the types in the
timeval struct and causing the crash? Or has there be some for of bug
fix etc?

F30 change, bootloaderspec by default

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

I want this change to succeed but I'm experiencing a regression, and
while trying to troubleshoot it I'm finding it difficult to understand
the myriad differences:

- I can't find the code. I assume all of it is in grub as blscfg.mod
and grub2-mkconfig and its associated scripts in /etc/grub.d but I'm
not seeing code or code reference in the change or here

- I can't find any documentation.

Review swaps

Hi all,

Sagemath 8.6 is out, which means that at long last we can upgrade the
gap package. Upgrading gap means dealing with the fact that some of
the fundamental group libraries have now been split out of the main
package and have their own upstream repositories.

Debugging ppc64le


While packaging up votca-csg-1.5, I ran into some tests failing:
<a href="" title=""></a>
but this only happens on ppc64le under epel7. (So I expect boost-1.53
being the culprit!)

Is there a good way (qemu or something) to debug this interactively?




I have a C7 7.6.1810 install that I wish to "reinstall".
when I run "yum reinstall \* "

How do I get the system to actual download all current packages and
re-install them ?

Orphaning pysvn (and non-responsive maintainer: ravenoak)

I've been maintaining this for several years since the main admin
(ravenoak) vanished from Fedora. I don't use it anymore (and most of
the world has long since switched to git...) and it has yet again
failed to rebuild during the mass rebuild.

I'm initiating the Non-Responsive Maintainer process for ravenoak so
the main admin will be cleared.

Orphaned rubygem-rails-observers

Hi all,

This package used to be part of Ruby on Rails, later it was removed from
the framework and extracted into independent gem mainly for backward
compatibility. This package is FTBFS ATM, presumably since Ruby on Rails
5.2 were imported into F29, because there is one test failure. Upstream
does not bother to fix this issue and because I don't have any use for
this package, I just orphaned it.

Lazarus 2.0 release - push to Rawhide or wait?

Just a couple of minutes ago, version 2.0 of Lazarus, the Pascal IDE / GUI toolkit was released.

Here's the link to the changelog; there are a few compatibility-breaking changes:
<a href="" title=""></a>

Lazarus is used to compile a few other Fedora packages, thus I'd want to avoid just upgrading it to v.2.0 and calling it a day without checking how it affects the dependent packages. I could submit an F30 change proposal, though that would be way past the deadline.

Orphaned rubygem-capybara_minitest_spec

There were no dependent packages.

Orphaned some Java packages

I've just orphaned 259 packages listed below.

Unannounced soname bumps: proj and geos


The recent bump of proj in Rawhide from 4.9.3 to 5.2.0 also bumped the
soname from to
The bump of geos in Rawhide from 3.6.1 to 3.7.1 also bumped the soname
from to

These bumps should be announced *before* the build has been made.

Fortunately, as I was already investigating the possibility of
updating proj, I have the list of proj-dependent packages already. I
was not looking at geos, but hopefully the list below includes

Python packages with extras dependencies

Python packages can specify extras dependencies, which are sets of dependencies not required for core functionality, and which generally correspond to some feature. These can then be specified by downstream consumers of the package. For example, requests has an entry in extras called security[1], which currently adds requirements of python packages pyOpenSSL >= 0.14, cryptography >= 1.3.4, and idna >= 2.0.0. A downstream consumer that wants to use this would add a dependency on requests[security].

From what I can tell, the current practice in Fedora packaging is to ignore these.
