Heads up: selinux-policy-3.14.1-25.fc28 breaks GDM

I installed the latest batch of updates for F28 tonight. Since that
included a new kernel (4.16.10-300.fc28), I rebooted. The system came up
with the GDM panic screen [1]. I rebooted into the previous kernel
thinking that something might be wrong with the new one. Same result. I
rebooted again and added enforcing=0 to the kernel boot line. That
worked. I did a full SELinux relabel immediately afterwards. Nothing
relevant changed labels.

The SELinux Alert Browser says there are no alerts.

As of tzdata-2018e, the upstream will now default to using the

What is the process for requesting an update to a package?

Hi all,

I am trying to use the package "fossil", but I am having problems
because its version is too old.

Fedora 28 (and thus the fossil package) contains version 2.2, while the
current version of fossil is 2.6 (released 15 days ago).

Version 2.2 included in Fedora, was released on April 2017.

What is the process of triggering an update to fossil package to version
2.6?

Purpose of non-user visible groups in comps?

I'm looking at updating the groups in comps for MinGW and there is already
a mingw32 group but it's not user visible.

My plan would be to update it so there is a user visible group, something
to the effect of "MinGW Development" that would install a basic mingw
development environment for both 32 and 64 bit windows applications.

Is there any special handling that needs to be done of the old group? Or
should I leave it alone and just create the new group?

Thanks,
Richard

cwickert: Unresponsive package maintainer

As per step 4 of Policy for nonresponsive package maintainers [1], I'm asking here whether anyone knows cwickert (Christoph Wickert), who is maintainer of the different packages including gtkhash, and has a way of contacting him/her. This package is quite outdated as it has not seen an update in >4 years. There are 5 open bug reports by 5 different people filed against this package and some of them are requesting an update [2]. None of those bug reports have any comment from the maintainer. One of those bug reports is open since 2013-12-03 [3].

macro(s) to use in RPM spec for /usr/lib/modules-load.d

What macro(s) should I use in an RPM spec to refer to a directory like
/usr/lib/modules-load.d, which is under /usr/lib even if libdir is
/usr/lib64? Is there something better than %{_usr}/lib/modules-load.d?

RFE: update xmlgraphics-commons up to ver. 2.2 in Fedora 28

Hello All!
This package, xmlgraphics-commons, didn't receive much attention
recently, so we missed an opportunity to update it in Fedora 28
without hurry. Unfortunatelyit seems that we have to.

Recently updated pdfbox (which has a subpackage fontbox, a Fop
dependency) makes fop-2.0 unable to produce PDF files (at least in
some cases). Upstream fixed compatibility in Fop version 2.1 (2.2 is
the latest available version).

I've updated Fop to 2.2 in Rawhide, but Fedora 28 still contains
broken Fop because it also requires upgrading xmlgraphics-commons up
to ver. 2.2. We ship ver.

What services / tools still require NIS domain?

Hello people,

I would like to know if you know about any service / tool / application
that still relies on NIS domain to be set in Fedora?

So far, I know only about SSSD/FreeIPA relying on it. Does anybody know
anything else? All replies are welcome. :)

Best regards,

Fedora 29 Rawhide 20180516.n.0 nightly compose nominated for testing

nightly compose if you have time.

Running “telinit u” on glibc update

In Fedora, for historic reasons, we run “/sbin/telinit u” after
installing a new glibc RPM package version.

Does this still make sense? Should we remove the code which invokes
telinit from the glibc package?

Thanks,
Florian

Testing the wireframes of the Fedora Community App

Hello People!

So we are working on revamping the Fedora Community App
<https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fedoraqa.fedora&hl=en>,
and after an initial feedback and user testing session, we have an improved
wireframe ready for another round of testing.

I was wondering if some of you can test this wireframe and provide some
valuable feedback. In the process, you will be asked to do very simple
tasks (which will hardly take 2 minutes) on a clickable prototype. We can
learn from the insights of testing to iterate on the design of the
application.

/etc/profile.d/lang.sh -- still needed?

Hello people,

does anybody know if the files /etc/profile.d/lang.{csh,sh} are still used
these days, and what for?
Do we still need them in Fedora?
Should they be installed by default these days?

Any info is appreciated! :)

Taskotron test failures (dist.rpmlint)

Hello,

I've just submitted an update to cmpfit[0] for f28. The automated tests
show errors and warnings only on x86_64 and armv7hl[1] and the errors have
to do with the omission of ldconfig scriptlets. Aren't we supposed to get
rid of these for f28+?

The warnings are:
cmpfit-devel.armv7hl: W: no-documentation
cmpfit-devel.x86_64: W: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
cmpfit-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
Is there any merit to them?

HEADS-UP: [rawhide] Fabric API change

Hello,

I've updated Fabric to 2.0 in rawhide which finally bring python3
compatibility, however the APi has been heavily changed, so any
application that depended on Fabric need porting (only Avocado
Framework atm).

Fabric 2 has been provided in different namespace, in order to keep
Fabric 1.x-compatible fork "Fabric3" as default provider, this will
change once the dependencies are ported.

Best regards.

Fedora Media Writer for macOS, is not signed?

Hi,

The Fedora Media Writer for macOS at getfedora.org is not signed. I
filed this bug a couple weeks ago but somehow lost track of it, and
also it's possibly not the right location for the bug report as it
relates to what's offered on getfedora.org

As I mention in the bug, it's not a big deal to use the work around
for unsigned binaries when testing.

Intent to drop python2-notebook

python2-notebook is a leaf package (nothing in Fedora (build)requires
it). I'd like to drop it from rawhide. Any objections?

This **does not** affect the ability to run Jupyter Notebook (via the
jupyter-notebook command) with Python 2 kernel (from the
python2-ipykernel package).

libidn soname bump

The libidn upstream has released 1.35, which increments the soname.
I'm planning to update the package on the next Tuesday.

The following packages will need to be rebuilt. I don't see anything
critical that should break the buildroot.

RPM spec style

Greetings.

I'd like a quick opinion on spec file style...

Nearly all specs I've seen dealing with subpackages group all the
%package/%description stanzas near the beginning, and put all the %files
stanzas near the the end. (Example 1 below)

However, are there any reasons, stylistic or otherwise, that the %files
stanzas shouldn't be grouped with their corresponding
%package/%description stanzas? (Example 2 below) Especially when there
are a large number of subpackages...

Thanks.

Regards,

Merlin
