I have run into the following problem and maybe someone on the list can
help shed some light. Maybe this is just a misunderstaning on my behalf
and I hope that someone can help.
Openstack Quantum makes use of namespaces for the DHCP and L3 agents.
This enables one to make use of overlapping IP's. In the Fedora
packaging we create a quantum user that runs the above mentioned agents.
Each agent can create one or more namespaces. There is a sudoers file
for quantum. The contents are below:
[root@localhost sudoers.d]# cat quantum
quantum ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: SETENV: /usr/bin/quantum-rootwrap
When one of the agents creates a namespace the root user is unable to
access the namespace:
List of namespaces:
[root@localhost sudoers.d]# ip netns
Trying to read configured interfaces in namespace:
[root@localhost sudoers.d]# ip netns exec
qdhcp-0c642a75-0402-4013-a0d0-6eb8b1b9c9cc ip link
seting the network namespace failed: Invalid argument
It seems that the reason for this is that the permissions are as follows:
[root@localhost ~]# ll /var/run/netns/
----------. 1 root root 0 Sep 24 09:00
----------. 1 root root 0 Sep 24 09:02
If the agents are run by a the root user and not quantum then the
permission of the files are:
-r--------. 1 root root 0 Sep 24 09:00
-r--------. 1 root root 0 Sep 24 09:02
And the ip link operation succeeds.
I would assume that the root should have permission to access the
I've tried to follow the discussions related to Fedora and Apple
hardware in these lists. Some days ago I decided to try to install F17
on my Macbook Pro. Maybe it is useful to share my experiences.
The initial state was:
Apple Macbook Pro 3.1, a Triple-boot system with Mac OSX, WindowsXP,
Fedora 14, booting through ReFit
For Fedora I had a separate 'root', 'swap' and 'home' partitiion.
My plan was to do a fresh installation on the existing root partition
keeping the home partition as is.
The istallation media was F17 i386 DVD.
1. The system booted from DVD correctly, graphical setup was OK.
2. At selecting partitions I choose custom setup, and selected my
existing /, swap, and /home partitions for installation.
At this point I had to stop, because setup needed a bios boot
partition that I didn'h have.
3. As I didn't want to mess up my partitions completely / to have more
control, I manipulated my partition table out of the graphical setup.
I used gdisk in command line from the DVD. I removed my linux root
partition and created a 1MB Bios boot partition and a new root
partition. The other partitions were not touched. With gdisk I could
set the hybrid MBR as well.
4. Starting setup again, selecting custom disk layout with grub
installed on the boot partition, the installation was OK.
5. However the hybrid MBR of the disk was cleared. So I had to setup
again the hybrid MBR with gdisk. After that I could boot all the 3
systems with ReFit. (ReFit now shows an extra starting icon however,
that seems to start windows or fedora depending on which one was
booted last time. I don't know where comes this from.)
But finally I have bootable Fedora 17 system, hurrah. And my existing
other OS-es survived. :-)
as the subject says there are test packages available for your beloved
Fedora's. Especially Thunderbird 17 (Earlybird now) needs some love from
you (the 17ESR line is going to be a background for the future ones) so
it would be great if you can install it, run it and report any issues.
All instructions are at:
NOTE: All those packages are pre-release and are targeted to experienced
Your Mozilla Team.
My name is Erwin Waterlander. I intend to maintain the package wcd for
Fedora, of which I am also the upstream maintainer. See
Wcd is a mature package, already part of Debian, Ubuntu and Cygwin
(packaged by others).
I provided wcd RPM packages already for many years via my own web page
and SourceForge, but not via the official Redhat rawhide channel. Looong
time ago wcd has been in the 'contrib' folders of Redhat. I'm a
Redhat/Fedora user since Redhat 5.0 (1997).
I'm also the upstream maintainer of 'dos2unix', and I maintain a few
packages for Cygwin and MinGW.
This doesn't look right ...

At the F18 Alpha Go/No-Go Meeting that just occurred, the Fedora 18
Alpha release was declared GOLD. F18 Alpha will be released Tuesday,
September 18, 2012.
Thanks to everyone who helped to make it possible, to ship Spherical
Cow out of the doors to the wild journey for Beta and GA!

Your very happy schedule wrangler
#fedora-meeting-1: F18 Alpha Go/No-Go meeting
Meeting started by jreznik at 19:00:49 UTC. The full logs are available
* roll call (jreznik, 19:01:38)
* jreznik nirik jlk rbergeron kparal tflink adamw present (jreznik,
* Purpose of this meeting (jreznik, 19:06:44)
* Purpose of this meeting is to see whether or not F18 Alpha is ready
for shipment, according to the release criteria. (jreznik,
* This is determined in a few ways: (jreznik, 19:07:07)
* No remaining blocker bugs ;-) (jreznik, 19:07:43)
* Test matrices for Alpha are fully completed (jreznik, 19:07:49)

* agenda (jreznik, 19:09:05)
* 3 Proposed Blockers (tflink, 19:12:34)
* 3 non-VERIFIED Accepted Blockers (tflink, 19:12:56)
* (855849) could not UEFI boot F18 Alpha (TC6 through RC3) DVD or
netinst written to optical disc or dd'ed to USB: /dev/root does not
exist (tflink, 19:13:49)
* LINK: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=855849 (tflink,
* Proposed Blockers, NEW (tflink, 19:13:54)
* AGREED: it is agreed in principle that the relevant release
criterion should be weakened so it only requires any one of the
'normal' UEFI boot paths to work, not several (adamw, 19:36:07)
* AGREED: 855849 - RejectedBlocker - With the above modification to
the F18 alpha release requirements, this bug is not considered a
blocker as USB media created with livecd-iso-to-disk is still able
to boot on (u)EFI machines (tflink, 19:38:14)
* (848305) When kernel modsetting is enabled, laptop screen remians off
until Xorg starts (ironlake) (tflink, 19:38:46)
* ACTION: adamw to propose criterion modification on test list
* LINK: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=848305 (tflink,
* Proposed Blockers, ASSIGNED (tflink, 19:38:52)
* AGREED: 848305 is rejected as a blocker on the basis that it only
affects certain systems (so a conditional violation, so a judgment
call) and appears to have a relatively simple and documentable
workaround (adamw, 19:57:39)
* (856938) Native UEFI install from F18 Alpha RC3 DVD written to USB
with livecd-iso-to-disk fails to boot (tflink, 19:58:32)
* LINK: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856938 (tflink,
* Proposed Blockers, NEW (tflink, 19:58:38)
* AGREED: 856938 - RejectedBlocker - While this is a conditional
violation of the F18 alpha release criteria, it was decided that the
current success rates are enough for F18 alpha (tflink, 20:11:24)
* (856399) RC2 DVD is missing grub2-efi and shim packages (tflink,
* LINK: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856399 (tflink,
* Accepted Blockers, MODIFIED (tflink, 20:13:06)
* This has been fixed in RC3 and will be moved to VERIFIED shortly
* (856096) repoclosure failure on 18 Alpha RC2 DVDs (mongodb) (tflink,
* LINK: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856096 (tflink,
* Accepted Blockers, ON_QA (tflink, 20:13:56)
* this bug has been fixed, needs to be moved to VERIFIED. after enough
karma, the update will be pushed to stable and this bug will be
closed (tflink, 20:15:57)
* (856836) /etc/fstab is not written correctly after live install (F18
Alpha RC2+) (tflink, 20:16:08)
* LINK: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856836 (tflink,
* Accepted Blockers, ON_QA (tflink, 20:16:13)
* this is reported to be verified with RC3, move to VERIFIED once that
is confirmed in bz (tflink, 20:17:28)
* this has just been verified with RC3 -> move to VERIFIED (tflink,
* the test matrices results (jreznik, 20:20:21)
* Base is 100% (adamw, 20:20:27)
* Desktop has Alpha tests covered for GNOME and KDE (release blocking
desktops). fallback isn't really considered critical since F17
* LINK: http://tflink.fedorapeople.org/updates/f18_traceback.img
* AGREED: the 'local disk' requirement of criterion " The installer
must be able to report failures to Bugzilla and local disk, with
appropriate information included" is waived for F18 Alpha as the
failure reporting tool does not currently have code for local disk
reporting, and we do not think an Alpha release strictly requires
this function (adamw, 20:34:32)
* missing Install tests are install_to_SCSI which has been waived for
several releases, traceback_to_disk which was waived above, and
non-EFI liveusb-creator which is OK as we only need *one* working
USB method for alpha, and we have more than one already (adamw,
* per above, Install matrix is functionally complete (adamw,
* go/no-go decision (jreznik, 20:38:53)
* rel-eng votes Go (dgilmore) (adamw, 20:39:37)
* devel votes Go (jlk) (adamw, 20:39:44)
* QA votes Go (tflink, viking, adam) (adamw, 20:39:52)
