About the membership issue

Concerning the disabled membership (yesterday). Is there anything that I should do?
Visiting the "re-enable" link shows only a plain site with meta information about
the list but without any feedback like "membership enabled". Albeit some postings are
coming in again now (with "normalized" sender address < ... at centos dot org>). Seems
the work to resolve this issue is in progress ...

wildcard certificate

Hi all - I am trying to figure out how to add a wild card certificate given
to me for a CentOS installation. I have a script that sets up HTTPS so I
am a little familiar with things - but they provided me two files:
name_ee.crt
name_i1.crt

I'm not sure how to apply that to the /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf file?
Anyone done that before ?

My initial searches were not helpful. Thanks,

Jerry

CentOS7/Mate Qt bugs/features?

We have recently migrated from CentOS6/Gnome to CentOS7/Mate - and have
noticed 'glitches' with some Qt applications that appears to be linked
to the 'org.mate.Marco.general' 'compositing-manager' setting - and
wondered how we 'fix' the issue ...

Below is a PyQT4 python script that shows the issues:

CentOS7: Setting up ldap over TLS in kickstart file

Hi,

I'm facing a problem with setting up LDAP+TLS client authentication in a
kickstart script on CentOS7 for several days.

Setting up manualy the config with system-config-authentication works but I need
to automate this in kickstart for deploying cluster nodes.
This show that the server side is running fine.

At this time the message is

#systemctl status sssd

sssd[be[default]][2732]: Could not start TLS encryption.

CentOS Kernel Support

Is anyone on the mailing list aware of anyone who supports older versions of CentOS kernels? Particularly, I am interested in getting security patches added to kernel-3.10.0-514.10.2.el7.src.rpm. Please let me know.

Regards,

Updated krb5 rpm package altered existing krb5.conf - No go

Hi,

I did an centos update from 7.4 to 7.5 and the krb5 package altered the existing and used config file! That should be a no go from my pov, as in my setup it broke some services which had a problem with the includedir line which was added.

Shouldn*t there be a rpmnew config file be created instead with the new/optional/added settings?

Articles on OpenSSH and Personal Git

Hi,

Wrote a couple articles on OpenSSH and on running your Git server in a
CentOS 7 environment

<a href="https://notrackers.com/the-command-line/openssh-primer/" title="https://notrackers.com/the-command-line/openssh-primer/">https://notrackers.com/the-command-line/openssh-primer/</a>

And the domain name is honest, there no trackers on that blog. None.

(that blog is actually for a WordPress project not ready for general use
but it seemed like a good place for the articles too)

I am sure they aren't perfect, but they may be of assistance to some.

C7, kernel oops, sllub.c

Anyone else seeing this: I've seen it with different line # as an upstream
bug: kernel BUG at mm/slub.c:3601.

When I look for slub.c, I think I found a slightly different version,
since that's a blank line, but it's in the function slab_memory_callbac.

On a possibly related note, one of my users who runs debian has been
getting a ton of radeon errors...

Problem with bugs.centos.org

Hi,

I wanted to create an account on bugs.centos.org to report a minor but
annoying bug with Dolphin.

After trying to register by providing the login (kikinovak) and email
address (<a href="mailto: ... at microlinux dot fr"> ... at microlinux dot fr</a>), I'm told that the email is already in use.
Uh oh. Maybe I already created an account years ago and then forgot
about it. So I click on the field for forgotten passwords, only to be
told that there is no one under that name or email address.

So I'm hitting a wall. Maybe one of the admins of bugs.centos.org is
reading this and can help me out?

Cheers,

Niki

squishy bell

Both Gnome and KDE give me a loud squishy
bell at the thought of the drop of a hat.
I did not get that in C6.
I infer it is a C7-specific thing.
Short of disabling my audio altogether,
how do I make it go away?

Not one of C7's better features.

Centos 7 and priorities

I've recently changed to Centos 7.
My recollection from C6 is that a couple useful repositories
need yum priorities to prevent some mixups.
I do not remember what they are. My C6 is gone.
Google has not told me what C6 repositories were.
In the near future, I will be installing nux and epel.
My understanding is that they do play well with each other and with base.
Are there common useful C7 repositories that need
help playing well with the aforementioned repos?

Is there a FAQ or a FM on this?

Custom ISO With Post Installation Scripts

Dear All

I have been working on a custom ISO with kickstart and a couple of post
installation scripts and would like to have the script run before the
login prompt.

The custom ISO works; however, the scripts fails because some of the
services, e.g.

/etc/gai.conf fails to prefer IPv4 over IPv6 for NFS

Using CentOS 6.9 with IPv4 configured, and _not_ disabling IPv6 yet, we
want this NFS client system to prefer the IPv4 address of a dual-stack
remote NFS server, which has both A and AAAA records in DNS.

Otherwise we get a minutes long pause while automounter tries to mount
the IPv6 address -- I can see automounter's '/bin/mount' running, using
the AAAA record of the server, until that times-out and the IPv4 address
of the server mounts successfully.

Disabling IPv6 altogether works around the problem as expected, but is
a bigger hammer than we wanted to use.

Convert from LVM

I have a Centos 7 install using EXT4 on LVM. Its running as a VM
inside KVM. Issue I have run into is that fstrim does not work due to
the LVM. Without fstrim snapshots have gotten huge. Is there a way
convert it from LVM to non-LVM without a complete reinstall?

rpmbuild --define | some rpm sorcerer around?

hi

how do you pass vars to rpmbuild for definition? eg

rpmbuild --define \'"${_definition2}"\'

I've been fiddling with ways to escape, but none is fricking working..
I mean, rpmbuild rushes to work(no errors nor failure) so if you try
just the command line do not believe it, because later as it executes
%if you will see process does not see these definitions.

many thanks, L

C7, encryption, and clevis

We've been required to encrypt h/ds, and so have been rolling that out
over the last year or so. Thing is, you need to put in a password, of
course, to boot the system. My manager found a way to allow us to reboot
without being at the system's keyboard, a package called clevis. Works
fine...

A touch conused on context

Ok, we've got a set of directories bind mounted on our standard mount
point for the web. The directory tree's been set with semanage fcontext -t
-e /var/www <ourmountpoint>. In one of the websites under there is
<site>/cgi-bin, and under *there are a couple of subdirectories, and a
.dat file that is written to (I thihnk it's a counter, or whatever).

can you rpm rebuild R-core-3.5.0-1.el7.x86_64 from epel-testing..

..successfully?

many thanks, L.

ldd question on CentOS 6.8 (64bit)

Hi all,

Will ldd display the paths to different libraries depending on their locations?

I'm trying to build libxml2 version 2.9.6 in /usr/local with a newer version of zlib (1.2.8) than what are in the system folders for CentOS 6.8.

I get the following output from ldd:

$ ldd ./libxml2.so
./libxml2.so: /lib64/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.3.3' not found (required by ./libxml2.so)
linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007ffeb1789000)

libz.so.1 => /lib64/libz.so.1 (0x00007fce9e60e000) <-- I expected /usr/local/lib here
libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so

Docker Update 1.13.1-53 -> 1.13.1-63 certificate error

Hello,

I'm using the docker stuff from the extras repo on CentOS 7.x
 
I'm using a secured local registry, which worked fine til 1.13.1-53
 
After the upgrade, I run into following error:

Firefox and Thunderbird freeze/crash followed by "nfs4_reclaim_open_state: Lock reclaim failed!" syslog messages

Hi,

since I updated my workstation from CentOS 7.4 to 7.5, Firefox and
Thunderbird (both 52.8.0, from CentOS repos) regularly freeze (or crash)
and cannot be restarted afterwards. Trying to start them results in a
"Bus error (core dumped)" (Firefox) and "Killed" (Thunderbird). The
system log then shows:

kernel: NFS: nfs4_reclaim_open_state: Lock reclaim failed!

each time I try to start the applications (our homedirectories are
mounted via NFS4). As far as I can see, no other applications are
affected.

Latest C6 kernel (2.6.32-696.30.1.el6) Panic on AMD processor on C7 KVM Host

<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1586278" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1586278">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1586278</a>

The above bug addresses  a kernel panic if you have a CentOS 7
KVM/QEMU/Libvirt host server running CentOS 6 VMs on an AMD processor
machine.

If you get this kernel panic:

PANIC: early exception 0d rip 10:ffffffff810462b6 error 0 cr2 0

The fix is to change the CentOS 6 VM CPU Type from Opteron_G5 (the default) to Opteron_G3.

This was impacting me starting C6 VMs on a C7 host, so I thought I would post the fix to the list.

git public web frontends

Hello,

Set up a CentOS 7.5 VM linode for git now that github has been bought.

I'm not anti-microsoft but I'm worried they will make changes that I
don't like (e.g. requiring ms account, changing billing, etc.) so I
figured better take control now.

Currently moving my private repos and have them set up in my home
directory there, but my public repos - I want to set them up with a web
interface so people can browse them etc.

Dual booting Windows 10 and CentOS 7

Hi -

I have an Engineering lab that was set up to dual boot with windows 7 and CentOS 6. This has worked just fine.

I would like to get advice on doing the same with Windows 10.

Steps I have tried -
1. Free up space for CentOS 7/C7 (50 gb).
2. Reboot to C7 installer.
3. Go to "SYSTEM -> INSTALLATION DESTINATION"

Here I see my single Local Disk with 48.83 GiB free. I selected "I will configure partitioning" and hit "Done".

This brought up - "New CentOS installation" and at the bottom 48.83 Gib free.

CentOS Pulse Newsletter #1801, June 2018

We are pleased to announce the latest edition of the CentOS Newsletter.
This release is packed with information from the CentOS Community,
including events, reports from our SIGs (Special Interest Groups) and
information about the release of CentOS 7.5.1804

This is the first edition in many years, and hopefully the first of many
to come.

Trying to print...

Well... we've got this poster printer. Been printing for years. There was
an, um, incident at work, and long story short, the .ppd that I had had to
create was lost. I've pretty much recreated it, and cupstestppd only gives
a few warnings...

installing perl-CPAN without perl-local-lib

I'm still working on getting my brand new Centos 7 mail server working and I'm
having problems with Perl.

Most of the modules are available as RPM's which was straight forward.
However, MIME::Parser, Net::SCP and Net::SSH aren't.

In order to get these working I installed the perl-CPAN rpm and then installed
the modules above. Doing this, installed perl-local-lib.noarch as a
dependancy.

Questions about yum-cron

Hi,

Up until now I always kept my servers up-to-date manually. Currently I'm
experimenting with yum-cron to automate this process.

I read through various online tutorials, and now I have a couple questions.

1. As far as I know, when editing /etc/yum/yum-cron.conf, I can only use
the following value for update_cmd :

update_cmd = default

If I understand this correctly, 'update_cmd = security' would have no
effect, since contrary to RHEL, CentOS doesn't provide the necessary
metadata to operate the distinction between security updates and other
updates like mere bugfixes.

Package security scanner for CentOS docker containers

Hi List,

I’m looking for a command line package security scanner for CentOS docker
containers.

Is there any utility out there for checking alpine packages in an alpine
docker container against the cve database?

Tools similar to debsecan would be ideal (<a href="https://github.com/allthings/" title="https://github.com/allthings/">https://github.com/allthings/</a>
debsecan), i.e a tool that can be launched from the host machine, will
connect to a container on the host, or start up a docker image on the
hosts, scan the packages and report CVEs relevant to each package.

Thanks in advance,
Traiano

CentOS 7.5 gui login root only

Taking first steps on CentOS 7 1804.

Logging into the Gnome/Gnome classic desktop from gdm works only for root. For other users, the screen flashes and the login screen returns. KDE/Plasma login is successful but ends up with a black screen with mouse pointer while all desktop processes appear to be running.

The CentOS 7 system is running in a CentOS6 KVM virtual machine, which may be the problem. I have no physical machine for testing right now.

These logins work for non-root users when the system is built from the CentOS 7 DVD.

'gnome-daemon-settings' Doesn't Start When Attempting To Make Changes

The problem - Whenever the user tries to make system changes (display,
mouse orientation, etc.), the gnome-settings-daemon pops up and says it
can't run, and the changes never occur.

Password recovery trick not working on CentOS

Hi,

I remember back in the days, there was a neat trick to recover a lost
root password, or more exactly, redefine a new password for root.

1. In the bootloader, boot the system with the 'init=/bin/bash' kernel
argument.

2. Remount the root partition in read-write mode:

# mount -o remount,rw /

3. Set the password for root:

# passwd

4. Remount the root partition in read-only mode:

# mount -o remount,ro /

5. Switch off the computer.

I tried this out of curiosity on a CentOS 7 sandbox machine, and this
doesn't seem to work anymore.

move LDAP service to new server

On my old Centos 7 server I had set up a LDAP database for user authentication
by other services (the server locally uses normal PAM authenticatin).

I set it up originally from a web page describing how to set up an LDAP server
for use with MS Outlook clients (which never worked)

Is there any (easy to follow) instructions anywhere to tell me how to back up
this service and restore it onto a new one?

Mailing list config question / minor rant

The <a href="mailto: ... at centos dot org"> ... at centos dot org</a> seems to be *uniquely* configured to hold messages with
a (single) CC to self. ALL of the other mailing lists I am on have no problem
with a CC to self. My mailer software is configured to CC to myself. This is
*only* a problem with the CentOS list. Why is this? Yes, I know it is *normal*
to configure Mailman to hold messages with a *long* CC list, since that is a
common tactic by spammers. But a CC of one? Really? Do spammers bother with
CC's with only one address?

Various applications freeze regularly since CentOS 7.5 update

Hi,

since we have upgraded to CentOS 7.5 (from CentOS 7.4), we experience
frequent, but not reproducible, freezes of various applications:
Thunderbird, Firefox, LibreOffice. Usually the application process
keeps running with PPID 1 w/o being killable (not even with SIGKILL).
Freezes of Thunderbird are usually followed by Firefox crashing a few
minutes later.

Update announcement request

Hi,

Can the updated files added to the Centosplus repo be sent to the announcement list please? I can't find them announced in any of the other lists.

Related to that, a new kernel was released to the Centosplus repo, kernel-plus-3.10.0-862.2.3.el7.centos.plus, but perf and python-perf were not updated for the new kernel. Is this an oversight? perf doesn't complain about mismatched versions though.

Thanks!

CentOS 7 system unsable after "yum update" (with some errors on the way)

God dag,

I've been trying to run a "yum update" (without additional arguments) to install the latest system updates on my CentOS 7 machine. It's no going so well. What happens is this:

1. The process gets stuck a couple of places as a "post" script or similar tries to run "dbus-send"; the problem looks awfully similar to what's described in <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018</a>. More specifically, this happens on installation of package "setroubleshoot" and "avahi". As a workaround, I'm using a manual kill to get rid of the hung process.

ARM64 CentOS AltArch release 7.5

Hi,

I have two questions:

(1) In 7.3 CentOS released a rootfs tar for ARM64. I can no longer find
this under the 7.5 release. Furthermore, I could also not find anything on
the ISO that seems rootfs-like in any near complete state. The closest was
the LiveOS/rootfs.img, but it seems this is not a complete fs as yum is
