Hey, folks. If anyone has a non-Intel BIOS RAID controller in a system
they can blow away for testing, can you please take a look at the
potential fix for:
you should be able to reproduce the bug just by trying to install F16
Final TC2 to a non-Intel BIOS RAID array, they all seem to be broken. To
try to fix, install again, adding my side repository at the repo stage.
Verify that grub2 -11 gets installed as part of the install, and see if
that fixes the problem. Thanks!

I would like to know if it is possible to block grub2 update? I tried
to use versionlock but unfortunately this does not work. Do anyone
knows some other effective way to block this update?
The version of synergy-plus currently in Fedora doesn't work well with
gnome3; I had noticed this because I couldn't get the mouse past the
menubar to an alternate screen configured to be "north", but there are
other problems as well:
Since the synergy package is orphanedin Fedora, I was going to file a
bug against synergy-plus pointing at the above report/patch, but then I
saw that synergy-plus and synergy have re-merged, and the project will
be called simply "synergy" in the future.
So, I'm wondering 1) which package I should file the bug against, and 2)
if we're going to switch back to synergy from synergy-plus, what needs
to be done (and by who) in the packages to make that happen.
One of the things I like most about Fedora is the orderly way in which
people are able to move in and out of leadership positions within our
community. Each development cycle, we have a set of elections for the
steering committees and for the Fedora Board. The next election cycle
is nearly upon us, so I'd like to take this opportunity to share the
details of the upcoming elections with you.
As quick reminder, the nomination period for this election cycle will
open on 25 October 2011, and will close promptly on 5 November 2011 at
23:59:59 UTC. The full elections schedule, along with more details
about the elections, can be found at
I strongly encourage you to consider running for an open position in
one of the elections. This is one way to serve your fellow community
members and help move Fedora forward at the same time. Additionally,
I'm looking for a few volunteers to help with the coordination of the
candidate questionnaires and town hall meetings. If you're willing to
help, please let me know.
== Fedora Board ==
This election cycle will fill two elected seats for the Board (seats
E1 and E2). Prior to the election I will also announce the first of
two appointed seat in this cycle (seats A1 and A2), with the second
appointment announcement to follow after the election. For more
information on nominations, and the process refer to:
== FESCo ==
This cycle will also see four candidates elected to open seats in the
Fedora Engineering Steering Committee. For information on the
nominations and elections:
== FAmSCo ==
This election cycle will also see candidates elected to fill all all
seven seats on the Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee. For more
information, refer to:
== Candidate Questionnaire and Town Hall meetings ==
Additionally, the nomination period also serves as the time for the
community to present questions to be posed to candidates. If you wish
to ask questions to be answered by candidates, you can add them at
will have the questions posed to them and responses made available to
the community before the voting period begins.
As we get closer to the elections, we will try to schedule several
Town Hall Meetings in IRC to help you get to know the candidates
better, and to ask them additional questions.
As always, I'm thankful to those who have given their time, talents,
and abilities to serve the Fedora community.

It's been some time since I've had to build a Fedora package, but when I
tried today I'm having some trouble.
$ rpm -q fedpkg
$ git branch
$ fedpkg build
Could not initiate build: Unknown build target: dist-rawhide
The current packaging guidelines require packages that update from sysv
init scripts to systemd scripts to provide conversion triggers that are
fired on the basis of an NVR comparison:
That is, we assume that we know that all releases with NVR < some-cutoff
use initscripts and all releases with NVR >= same-cutoff use systemd.
The comments in the above-linked page acknowledge that this means it's
impossible to upgrade the package to a newer upstream release in
pre-systemd Fedora branches. (You can't just move the cutoff value
forward, because then an upgrade in F16 or later will mistakenly re-fire
the update trigger.)
I'm really getting to the point where that's a completely unacceptable
restriction. I've already blown off one mysql bug-fix release in F15
because of this restriction, and I see they just released another one
that I'll be unable to ship in F15 because the systemd guys failed to do
their homework, and there are likely to be several more before F15 dies.
The idea I have at the moment is to ignore the advice to check package
version, and instead have the triggerun script check to see whether the
mysql sysv initscript file is present. I wonder whether anyone else has
dealt with this and has working scriptlets?

I want to try to modprobe netconsole during boot, but it needs to happen
after the network is up. Is there any standard place (rc.local and
modules-load seem to happen too early) to do this?
I filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=746481 against systemd,
but it has been closed notabug. So I am looking for simple alternatives
to do this. If there aren't any, then it looks like I need to make a custom
service that waits for networking to be up.
There is a project named SOS in Fedora collection on Transifex. I'd like to know if there is anyone maintaining it, because it seems like it needs to be translated, but there is no maintainer assigned in Tx and no translation team creation request has been fulfilled in 7 months. The latest change to code in Github is 6 months old. We tried to contact Adam Stokes mentioned in the source readme on Github, but no reply yet. Any help with getting response is much appreciated.

Unfortunately until today I did not get any response to the emails I
sent to Adam Stokes.
