I recently upgraded to Freeradius 3.0.19-1 and I noticed after I
restarted the service I was getting the following errors:
Apr 29 22:01:29 freeradius systemd: Starting FreeRADIUS high performance

'server.cnf', needed by 'passwords.mk'. Stop.

I got it from Fedora 28 Repo: freeradius-3.0.19-1.fc28.armv7hl. After a lot
of digging, I found that a "bootstrap" script on the /etc/raddb/certs/
directory was being called on the /usr/lib/systemd/system/radiusd.service.
This script overwrote my current certificate files. I had to comment out
the ExecStartPre=/bin/sh /etc/raddb/certs/bootstrap to fix the problem. I
am not sure if anyone else encountered this problem before.
Here is what I have on my /usr/lib/systemd/system/radiusd.service script
Description=FreeRADIUS high performance RADIUS server.

ExecStartPre=-/bin/chown -R radiusd.radiusd /var/run/radiusd

Is this being addressed on future releases?
Per the subject line, I see that there is this announcement
(https://fedoramagazine.org/announcing-fedora-30/), but after
starting the upgrade and downloading the packages, the upgrade made no
Usually, the announcement of a new release is made with an email blast,
which as yet, I haven't received.
Is the F30 release official?
Despite what I said in another thread I decided to go ahead with the
upgrade to Fedora 30 (from 29) on three VMs running under VMWare. Two
went without problems, but the one running my webserver (with sites
secured by LetsEncrypt) gives the following errors -
Problem 1: package python2-acme-0.31.0-1.fc29.noarch requires
python2-josepy, but none of the providers can be installed
- python2-josepy-1.1.0-6.fc29.noarch does not belong to a distupgrade
- problem with installed package python2-acme-0.31.0-1.fc29.noarch
Problem 2: package python2-certbot-dns-rfc2136-0.31.0-1.fc29.noarch

- python2-certbot-0.31.0-2.fc29.noarch does not belong to a
- problem with installed package
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)
I'm assuming I just need to wait for Certbot and its dependencies to
catch up, or is there a quicker way?
Thanks for looking
I am trying to figure ouyt how to get cups-pdf to default
to Landscape. I have found how to get it to default
to Letter in http://127.0.0.1.:631, but not to default
The cups mailing list tosses my eMail for soem reason.
Does CUPS-PDF have its own mailing list by chance?
I frequently run "dnf upgrade" and a few days ago did that. My system booted just fine but the networking did NOT come up as it has. It's like the system now wants to be ipv6. Manual ipv4 configuration works just fine.
I'm testing in a virtual machine with VirtualBox that has also been working just fine... The SAME problem started there to. Again, it's like the system wants to be ipv6. Again, manual ipv4 configuration works just fine. I have thought that I might have goofed something up so I reinstalled the VM and selecting "KDE Plasma Workspaces" and made NO other changes. I still have the problem. I've tried different versions of VirtualBox with NO joy.
Does anyone know what has changed and possibly how to recover?
This whole experience has left me feeling like the village idiot... NOT as much fun as they say it is.
If I'm in Gnome Terminal (no tmux), anytime I mouse over a URL it's
automatically underlined and I can right-click on it to get a
contextual menu with one of the options being to open the link.
If I run tmux, and in a tmux window/pane whatever, URLs are likewise
automatically underlined, and yet right-click does nothing. On the one
hand, Terminal clearly recognizes this is a link by underlining it.
But on the other hand something tmux related inhibits that contextual
Any ideas either how to fix this or if you think it's a bug? I'm kinda
inclined to file an RFE type bug upstream because it's pretty
aggravating; but if there's some work around I haven't discovered
that'd be even better.

I had Windows 10 and Fedora dual booting nicely on a i5 laptop but then the
I replaced it with a 1TB SSD (Yay!) and restored windows first per the
recommended method. I then booting Fedora 29 Live and performed an install
and all seemed to go well except it won't boot to fedora!
When I try to get to a boot menu I only see Windows Bootloader and Fedora
(the latter doesn't work). When I boot to Fedora Live I see multiple
entries with efibootmgr including two Fedora entries.
I assume one is for the old system and one for the new.
When I try to go into advanced settings in Win10 to change UEFI settings it
reboots me but there is a password on the BIOS. I can't remember if I set a
password of maybe the kids did somehow but I have tried every password I
have ever used and it won't let me in.
Anyone got any ideas?
