I never saw this anywhere before, so I'd like to ask here first, before
doing so ;)
Is it allowed to create a file ~/.mpd.conf, when building in koji and
I need to write down a password into that file, for running a testsuite.
If that file does not exist, I can't run mpich2 tests.
Here is the snipped, I intend to use:
# create ~/.mpd.conf, if it does not yet exist
if [ -e ~/.mpd.conf ]; then
# working locally, don't delete ~/.mpd.conf
echo MPD_SECRETWORD=$(pwgen -s 50 1) > ~/.mpd.conf
chmod 600 ~/.mpd.conf
# delte ~/.mpd.conf again
if [ $DONT_DEL = "FALSE" ]; then
This prefectly works with my local rpmbuild and local mock and there
won't probably be an issue with that, but is this 'the safe way' to do?
(This also use my local ~/.mpd.conf and does not owerwrite it or deletes
Thanks in advance.
It seems most days now something breaks and I want to debug it, but then
have to debuginfo-install. Is there a way to tell yum to always pull in
the corresponding debuginfo packages whenever it installs something?

On my machine this seems to happen on its own (ie. kernel-debuginfo gets
Seems like this might be the package that does it :
I'd like to switch from man
(http://primates.ximian.com/~flucifredi/man/) to man-db project
man-db seems for me to be better choice then the original man. The
* the upstream very active in man-db, man upstream almost does not
response and the last version was released in 2007
* because of the previous comment man-db have more features then man
* man-db uses Berkeley db instead of text file for the index of man pages
* Debian, Ubuntu, SuSE use man-db
As the first step I want to add man-db to fedora cvs.
