why I can't start centos 7.6 sometimes


I make centos 7.6 usb-disk, via which CentOS 7.6 is installed. But sometimes CentOS 7.6 can't start correctly, and stopped with the following message:

Ubuntu 18.04: systemd-resolved -- crashing or failing to start properly...

I have an *intermittent* problem with systemd-resolved. It is either crashing
or fails to start properly. The sympton is that when I go to do an update (eg
apt-get update), I get name resolver errors to the *local* (LAN only) mirror
host. Doing a "systemctl restart systemd-resolved" cures the problem. I am not
sure exactly what is going on, but it appears that for some reason
systemd-resolved is not seeing (or using) the *local* LAN DNS server (bind9
running on a CentOS 6 server).

UBUNTU OSX partition

I have UBUNTU and OSX installed on a Mac. Both operating systems are working perfectly but I am new to linux and am wondering if my partition scheme makes sense. The hard drive is 251 GB. Partition 1 says EFI 210 MB FAT. The second partition says MAC 211 GB APFS. Partition 3 says Swap 4.0 GB. Partition 4 says 36 GB Ext 4. Is this correct? It would seem to me that I would try to split the hard drive more evenly between OSX and UBUNTU. If changing the partition makes sense can I do this in either UBUNTO or OSX without reinstalling?

Intent to retire why

In a few days, I intend to update coq to version 8.9.1 in Rawhide, and
also update all of the packages that depend on it. The why package
has been abandoned by upstream. Its latest version does not work with
the latest versions of its dependent packages (why3 and frama-c), and
upstream has no intention of fixing it. I intend to retire it when I
do the updates. If somebody wants it, let me know, but be aware that
you will effectively have to become upstream.

Stale packages in Fedora 30

Since I was looking at a copy of the F30 repo for amd64, here's a list
of a bunch of packages whose dist tag suggests they haven't rebuilt
successfully in any currently-supported Fedora release.

safety vulnerability in tablet computer

We discovered safety hardware vulnerability in Samsung tablet computer model SM-T580 16GB SN: R52M20EG5WR – dangerous overheat of the tablet lithium-ion battery caused by short circuit to flash LED, which caused more likely by failed LED controlling hardware. We believe that similar design have other mobile computerized devices utilizing flash LED for digital camera. The computer in question has been in use for only three weeks. The temperature outside of the case was approximately 55C in open space. The LED was shining while the computer was power down.

Copr builders moved to Fedora 30, added AARCH64 support

Hello, fyi,

Fedora Copr builders were recently upgraded to Fedora 30 (from F28).

The major change is that `yum` package is not working ideally on F30
anymore, and soon (on F31) there will be no `yum` at all [1].

Mock (which is used on builders) though uses /usr/bin/yum-deprecated (yum)
by default for epel* chroots installation usually (on Fedora host), even
though it may use /usr/bin/yum symlink to /usr/bin/dnf as a fallback.

The major difference from mock perspective (and why yum-deprecated is
actually preferred, when available) is that dnf might calculate the
install transactions a littl

Modularity tooling intro?

Hi everyone,

I have a bunch of packages in a local repo built for various versions
of Fedora and CentOS, and am looking to build some of them for EL-8.
Clearly the way to go for an EL-8 add-on repo is to build modules, so
that it what I'd like to do. However, I want to do it on my own
infrastructure and hence use the lower-level tooling such as
mbs-manager/mock and local git repos rather than fedpkg/koji/dist-git.

There's quite a bit of documentation around about building modules but
what I've found seems to be either out of date (e.g.

requesting feedback on Mock default

you - fedora developers - are most significant users of Mock. Therefore I would like to ask you about feedback on:

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

The summary is:
Previously all output - both stdout and stderr - were mixed together. Like you will get on normal console.
Nowadays, if there is output to stderr, mock will prefix it with BUILDSTDER to indicate that it is coming from stdout.

I can definitely make this configurable. That is easy. The question is, what should be the default?

Fedora 31 System-Wide Change proposal: Switch RPMs to zstd compression

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

= Switch RPMs to zstd compression =

== Summary ==
Binary RPMs are currently compressed with xz level 2.
Switching to zstd would increase decompression speed significantly.

== Owner ==
* Name: [[User:dmach| Daniel Mach]]
* Email: <a href="mailto: ... at redhat dot com"> ... at redhat dot com</a>

== Detailed Description ==
* The change requires setting a new compression algorithm in rpm
macros. Then a mass rebuild of all packages is required.
* The macro for setting the compression is: %define _binary_payload w19.zstdio
* The recommended compression level is 19.

Diskless Centos & Cgroup config changes


I have OS 'image' that boots via PXE and mounts over NFS. (7.5.1804). I am
wanting to explore allowing cgroup usage on this configuration.

The root image is exported read-only over NFS and am using statetab & rwtab
to allow some persistent parts of the filesystem as well as read/write
where needed.

I have tried setting /sys in the statetab and this causes the machine to
fail, as I have tried /sys in the rwtab. The latter increases the boot time
to a point which is not usable.

Destop environment and gl performance...

Can someone explain why the destop environment (here Cinnamon) can have
such an impact on the graphic card performance ?

Using glmark, we see a 2x to 20x factor in glmark performance between
various destops (mate,xlfce,cinnamon). What can justify such a huge gap
in perfs ?

Even better is there a way to investigate the GPU usage (a la ps or top)
to understand such issues ?

Thank's in advance..

Google Chrome Flash doesn't seem to work in F30


I've noticed that Flash doesn't seem to work in F30 in the upstream
Google Chrome. It works in F29. As a test, I installed an F29 and an
F30 Workstation VM. I did nothing other than install Google Chrome
from the upstream site. The app I need and a test site work in F29
but not in F30.

I realize we don't package or distribute Google Chrome, but I was
wondering if anyone could provide some advice on where/how to
troubleshoot this?

I have a flash application that I use as part of my work for the
Fedora Project so this is a challenge for me.

thank you.



Wiki page correction: GRUB2


I'd like to propose tiny correction for the Fedora wiki page about GRUB2 [1].

However I'm not confident enought to edit it prior to any discussions,
so that's why I'm writing here.

In the chapter "Updating GRUB 2 configuration on UEFI systems"
In the section "Install the bootloader files"
I believe, there should be an information added, that the 'grub2-efi'
package *must* match your architecture. So e.g.

.desktop files no longer run when double clicked (on desktop or in file browser)

In Ubuntu 19.04 I am finding that it is not possible to run a .desktop

need for us to be able to this. Searching has not yielded a
workaround other than to install a different file manager.

upgrade to kernel 4.19.43 fail.

Hi all...

I just upgraded to laatest kernel in experimental from 4.19.40 ,
and for my OpenCL app this now fails with this msg:

amdgpu_device_initialize: DRM version is 2.50.0 but this driver is only compatible with 3.x.x.

Booting back to 4.19.40 makes it work again.

I have added a few files from amdgpu-pro package, to make openCL work
here in centos7; but something must have changed in this new kernel for
amdgpu support.

As kernel 4.19.40 works fine, it is not a big issue here - just wanted
to report it.


Fedora 28 End Of Life

As of the 28th of May 2019, Fedora 28 has reached its end of life

updates until approximately one month after the release of Fedora 31.
The maintenance schedule of Fedora releases is documented on the

UEFI boot manager sequence problems HP Envy

Morning all,

I have a HP Envy dual boot system (Win8 for serious stuff, i.e. Train Sim and Flight Sim) and Centos 7 for everything else.

In the past I've had the occasional problem where an update on the windows side has updated the UEFI boot sequence but using efibootmgr has always fixed it.

On Friday I discovered that my HDD was failing so I tried using Clonezilla to move it on to a new SSD of the same size. Unfortunately the clone didn't work, failing half way through my main partition.
