Updating wcslib in Rawhide to 6.3

Hello, I'm going to update wcslib from 5.19 to 6.3. It breaks API, so I'm
announcing it here in advance.

The policy [1] says that I should notify also the maintainers of the
packages that depend on mine. What command I have to run to know the names
of the packages?

After a bit to research I did:

dnf repoquery --repoid=fedora --whatrequires wcslib

But this checks against my current Fedora (30 in my host).

Help needed with FTBFS of package cpl in i686 and Fedora>=29

Hello, I'm trying to fix a FTBFS bug in cpl, a C library. The package fails
in i686 on Fedora>=29 and compiles in Fedora<=28

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

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

I imagine that, after enabling SSE2 in Fedora 29, we are compiling a
different code path
that fails. I don't have any experience with this kind of code.
The error is related with _m_from_int64, that seems undefined? But
_m_from_int64 is defined in one of the *intrin.h headers.

Retire loki-lib

I would like to retire loki-lib.

It's a C++ library that hasn't been updated in nearly 10 years. It FTBS for
some releases (circa F23)

Repoquery says that nothing in Fedora depends on it.

Cfitsio soname bump

Package stops supporting python 2.7 in latest version, what to do now

Hello all,

python package astropy as ceased to support python 2.7 in its latest
version, 3.0.
It still provides a LTS version that supports both python 2 and 3.

As astropy packagers, we seek advice on how to manage this situation.

So the posibilities are:

1) package the version with support of python 3 and forget about python 2
2) package the LTS version that supports both python 2 and 3
3) package the LTS version for python 2 and the new version for python 3.

In the third case, wihich consider the best approach, do I need to create a
new package and go through the review process?

Multiseat seems broken in Fedora 24


I have a machine with two identical nvidia cards and I configured it with
multiseat and Fedora 23. It worked well, that is, two GDM login screens,
one in each display.

Then I updated to Fedora 24 and it stoped to work. I have tested that
multiseat works with the LiveCDs of Fedora 23 and Fedora 24. As soon as I do

loginctl attach seat1 /sys/devices/pci0000:00/..../drm/card1

a GDM appears in the second screen. With the updated Fedora 24 I get a
black screen.

Enable Wake-On-LAN in current Fedora

I was wondering what is the "correct" way of enabling WOL on a network card.

This Arch document [1] describes several methods (which basically are
different methods on running "ethtool -s eth0 wol g").

* run ethtool in udev
* run a cron on reboot
* run a systemd unit

This Fedora bug [2] suggests that you can make NetworkManager run a script

And finally you can use good old /etc/rc.d/rc.local and put there the
ethtool command.

Notice that all of this requires editing files, there isn't a check box
somewhere in the NetworkManager GUI to enable this option

Continuous integration for Fedora


I have recently heard of Debian Continuous Integration, i.e, automated self
tests are run for packages whenever its dependencies are updated.

Are there any plans to have something similar for Fedora?

Unresponsive maintainer Germán Racca (skytux)

Very slow trackpad after install latest F20 updates

Hello, I have updated two laptops runing F20 today. After the update, on
both of them (Asus and Dell) the trackpad has turned very slow, and

Has anybody seen something similar with late updates?
