Default F15 on VBox Issue 11 on Vol 88, Issue 31 reg

Hi Chris, Mcgrath and ExpertsPlease note,*VirtualBox issue listed as 11 th in the issue (Vol 88-Issue 31) seems to be*requiring due focus because of Smolt profile number*comparison. There are definite indications that this user base will increase.

*I wish to suggest that we need a team to focus on**Virtualization with F15 as guest. This will again look at various hosts like 32bit Mac X,64 bit Mac X,Win 64,Win 32,servers and clients. The priority of focus can be driven by the Smolt profile numbers. This task would be starting point to be driven from this point towards a full fledged support. I can volunteer for few as i also contribute to and on the lists on VirtualBox dev/test/bugs team.

I leave it to your views and*suggestions,experts.

Thanks and regardsRichard Vijay

Would you believe I scanned the entire list of bugs against the

"kernel" component looking for this, and never thought about looking

at the "systemd" component? *Thanks, Tom! *I'll patiently wait for the

You should be able to get it out of koji now. I wasn't having much luck

with the rc2 kernel though.

I've never used the v6 support in libvirt, so I'm guessing here, but

wlan0 is the physical interface on the host that you're running radvd

on, right? That would pick up router advertisements from the router in

your wireless LAN, if you have one.



I guess if radvd is bound to virbr0 then that interface would pick up an

address from your prefix though.



What is the output of



ip -6 addr



?

Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear. my ifcfg-wlan0 has an IPv6 address that

is supposed to be assigned to wlan0. It isn't. The kernel complains

kernel: [ * 13.872649] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready



So, in my rc.local script I ifdown/ifup and it fixes it. At first I

thought it didn't, but I had a long running script that ended up before

that ifdown/ifup and so it wasn't taking. Now, the problem is only that

link is not ready junk.



Thank you,

Trever

Simply because tar does not store all the extended attributes. Just

limited set of them. At the moment security.capability is not among

them. Feel free to report a bugzilla against rawhide tar...



You may also consider using star... where is the support for extended

attributes present for longer time (and upstream).

Hi,



I'm not using this package and I have not checked its state before

taking the ownership (which was mistake). It doesn't work for users who

upgraded from F14 to F15 and I wasn't able to find out why exactly it

fails. There are also some bugs untouched for long time.



To sum it up, it is probably better to hand it over to someone else who

has more time and actually still uses it.

Jan Kaluza

You will be surprised, but I use it with Fedora 14, 15, and now with Rawhide. It works and quite

good actually.



So, thanks for making rpm.

Check with the Xfce maintainers,

they believe it's dead upstream.

What kind of relation between Xfce maintainers and SLIM. I always thought SLIM is just display

manager, which can start whatever I want.

I agree. As virtualization technology becomes more and more involved

and frequent on users systems, particularly with advanced Linux users,

I think there needs to be a strong focus on ensuring that all releases

run in virtualized environments without any major issues. ie.

Virtualbox.



Perhaps a dedicated team among the developers who specialize in this area.

Subject: [FHS] helper scripts location

To: Development discussions related to Fedora

Message-ID: <BANLkTi=ab1x1zULbPp7tArsKZUshj5utiw@mail.gmail.co m>

Hi,



I'm reviewing osc and osc-source_validators (osc is Opensuse Build

Service CLI, the latter a plugin to the former).

An issue arose about helpers script location:

1) Fedora packaging guidelines suggests helpers *should go*

/usr/libexec for helpers ==> requires patching since osc search

helpers in /usr/lib

since it's not in FHS, it's almost certain that a patch won't be upstream-able

2) FHS explicitely allows shell scripts in /usr/lib

3) FHS doesn't forbid putting them in /usr/share as helpers could be

considered as "arch independent data"



There are recent packages that choose options 2 && 3 (namely, systemd

and dracut).

According to me, guidelines doesn't enforce any of these options, and

choice is left to packager/reviewer appreciation, though you may

distinguish an order of precedence.



So, what's the take of my fellow packagers on that particular matter ?



Best regards,

H.
