Hi Fedora folks,
umb-scheme package is planned to be removed from FC3 and replaced by
slib. The reason is that the most of packages are dependent on
umb-scheme because of slib (such as Guile, etc.) and the thing what
comes in question is whether the umb-scheme is used by someone.
Furthermore encapsulation of slib into umb-scheme denies visibility of
the slib authors. For more info see:
Note that umb-scheme will be still present in FC3t2.

When will we see a browsable source/patch/SPEC tree for all released
srpms, so I don't have to download bloody xorg-x11.src.rpm just to have
a peek at the current SPEC file?
Just a tree with all packages, where every maintainer keeps his/her
source, SPEC and patches for every version (s)he releases. Hard links
could be used where appropriate (large tarballs and unmodified patches).
Would be very useful, especially during development phases.

Sorry for reposting this (I sent it to fedora-list earlier), but I'm
running out of ideas...
I'm having a weird problem... I'm trying to set up a mail server for
a client. It's a dual Opteron box with 4GB RAM running FC2/x86_64.
I'm setting it up with amavisd-new, which requires setting up postfix
to listen on a port (so postfix relays to amavisd which relays to
postfix). The initial connection to postfix (port 25) is fine. The
mail is processed by amavisd fine. When amavisd tries to connect to
postfix again, I get this:
==> /var/log/messages <==
Aug 31 23:33:20 foo kernel: smtpd: segfault at 00000030bf300e20 rip 00000030bf206294 rsp 0000007fbfffd8b0 error 7
==> /var/log/maillog <==
Aug 31 23:33:20 foo postfix/master: warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 1665 killed by signal 11
Aug 31 23:33:20 foo postfix/master: warning: /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling
I've tried upgrading and downgrading the kernel to every FC2 errata
kernel-smp, plus I've tried kernel-smp-2.6.8-1.533 from rawhide. I've
also tried upgrading postfix to 2.1.4-1 from rawhide. Nothing seems
to change the behavior.
It's entirely possible that I've screwed something up somewhere that
explains all this, but I'm inclined to think not... I've basically
cloned a working config from another (i386) box.
Any ideas would be very welcome...

When doing something with rpm that should really be done as root could
it please say for example
"error: can't create transaction lock, do you need to be root", or maybe
a permission problem message instead of :
$ rpm -e kernel-2.6.5-1.358 kernel-2.6.8-1.541
error: can't create transaction lock
How would I formally request a more useful error message?
For the first half second I think, "huh, what's wrong", half a second
after that I throw a 'sudo' in front of it.
