we use mock for local package build, but it's very slow. now we install
a new host just for mock with 8core, ram disks etc. it seems it still
slow. first of all most of the time mock use only one 1 core of the cpu.
is there any way to speed up different part of the mock build process?
thanks in advance.
ps. anyway is there any better place to discuss it?

Nowadays the jack project has two branches - old jack (1) branch with
version 0.116.2 and new one called jack2 version 1.9.3.
I'd like to gather opinions and suggestions about applying new version for F13.
Please, share your thoughts!
With Best Regards,
Has there been any plans to support running custom post-up scripts for each interface, after "ifup <interface>" ?
Debian allows you to specify:
iface eth0 inet static
I'm looking for something similar for rhel/fedora.
Maybe something like POST_UP="/path/script" in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-int
I'm forwarding this for David Anderson:

Subject: Orphaning curlftpfs , mod_auth_shadow
Date: Mon, 11 Jan 2010 11:22:25 +0000
User-Agent: KMail/1.12.4 (Linux/188.8.131.52-166.fc12.x86_64; KDE/4.3.4; x86_64; ;)
Due to a slow African Internet connection and ever-growing
responsibilities, I regret that I have to and am orphanning these two
curlftpfs - mount FTP filesystems via FUSE and curl
mod_auth_shadow - Apache authentication via /etc/shadow
There are a couple of open bugs for curlftpfs which I said I'd fix by
upgrading to the latest version, but it's so long since I used the
system and I'm battling with the accounts system, expired certificates.
Both these packages I originally packaged because I wanted to use them.
I'd have thought that they'd both have many users.
I'd like to retire kudzu for F-13.
- There are places where it almost certainly does not work with current kernels
- It's so deprecated that one of its replacements (HAL) has since been
frozen and deprecated
- Given that, its upstream is very dead
However, it is still being required by two programs:
If someone wants to keep it limping along for thsese two programs I can
orphan it. But I'd really rather just retire it.
thunderbird seem to remove spaces from lines that only consist of one or
more spaces. Any way of preventing thunderbird from doing so? I already
have "mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed false" and turned of line wrapping.
With these option sending patches works pretty well, only recently I
had a patch that got corrupted because of spaces being removed.

According to bug #517013, %post scripts should not assume that /dev is
available -- so we can't do anything that requires the existence of
/dev/null, /dev/urandom, etc.
Is this a known and expected packaging rule, or is it a bug in the way
that the user is attempting to install the packages?

First of all: thank you, fedora developers, for making such a great linux
I think I have some good ideas and suggestions that might help you improve
1) Create a new plymouth theme (or in other words, ask the artwork team to
The current default plymouth theme is almost the same theme from fedora 11.
I think we need to change it.
2) Plymouth boot splash background should match the gdm background
as I've explained here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=550321
3)Plymouth needs a graphical user interface to select the boot splash
screen, with a preview of the selected theme, so the user wouldn't have to
reboot to see if he likes the theme.
yum should select the mirror to download from in a smarter way, considering
the current load on the mirror and the distance of the mirror from the user.
This will help reduce the load on the mirrors and make the download faster
for the user. The mirrorlist server should know what is the load on each
mirror, and give yum the mirrorlist sorted by the load and the distance from
the user. yum should prefer the less busy and closest mirror it can find.
5)PackageKit UI improvements:
5.1)When downloading packages, display the percentage of the download
progress on the progress bar
5.2)Fix bug #551201 ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=551201)
5.3)Make it possible to undo transactions using gpk-log
6)BiDi problems with translations:
this problem is the most annoying thing in fedora for me. gnome-terminal for
example doesn't have any bidi support. terminals are not supposed to support
but the problem begins with applications like pkcon or diff, in which
terminal output is also translated.
that causes unreadable output. e.g if the output was supposed to be שלום it
will display םולש.
there are two ways to fix this problem
1) make gnome-terminal and others support BiDi output
2) put a comment in each POT file that warns the translator about strings
which will be written in the terminal so translators would know what should
I think the first way is better.
7)Combine all hardware listing programs (e.g hwbrowser, usbview, lshw-gui)
into one, comprehensive, easy to use GUI.
thank you for listening.
