I have the yarrow's iso files on my HD in a RH9 system. Let's say I want
to upgrade selected packages using an "apt-get install" pointing to my
iso-mounted files, how do I do it?
i.e I mount the iso into some /mnt/yarrow1, /mnt/yarrow 2 etc..
Then what is the complete procedure to make my apt look into my own HD to
upgrade packages. Can anybody redirect me to the correct
resource or some literature hanging on the web? Thanks.
Assume also that I do not wish to burn CDs! I do not want to use
With kind regards,

I just git a "broken dependencies" notice for a package that I maintain.
The reason is that "pdftk" got retired just the other day.
I may have missed a corresponding post on fedora-devel, but I think a
heads up notice to maintainers of depending packages may be in order
before you retire a package, as a general idea.
You see, unretiring a package is so much more work than changing
As for pdftk: I see 2 failed builds for version 1.45 and none for the
current version 2.02 (which probably breaks the api anyways). What are
the plans? Retire pdftk completely? Start fresh with pdftk2?
pdflabs, the maker of pdftk, provide binary as well as source rpms for
pdftk 2.02, by the way. I might even look into packaging it but don't
want to duplicate any existing efforts.
I just had to setup a new machine, and new ssh keys.
I chose my new id_rsa.pub to upload.
But I get:
git push --verbose
Pushing to ssh://email@example.com/mercurial

Just a quick headsup for users following Fedora 29, the
dbus 1.12.10-1.fc29 build is missing the systemd dbus.service
file, breaking almost everything.
Instead it contains a dbus-daemon.service file, but the
dbus.socket file expects a matching dbus.service, not
So either hold of on applying updates until this is fixed
or exclude dbus.
In libvirt we recently deleted a driver for the legacy Xen toolstack.
This was shipped in a libvirt-daemon-driver-xen RPM.
I am able to add an "Obsoletes: libvirt-daemon-driver-xen < 4.3.0"
line to the libvirt-daemon-driver-libxl RPM, which gives clean
upgrade path for users.
If they have the libvirt-daemon-driver-xen-debuginfo RPM installed
though that still breaks the upgrade.
How can I get the auto-generated libvirt-daemon-driver-libxl-debuginfo
RPM to have an "Obsoletes: libvirt-daemon-driver-xen-debuginfo < 4.3.0"
statement ? It seems impossible, meaning users with debuginfo have a
broken upgrade path. An unfortunate consequence of switching to seprate
-debuginfo per sub-RPM.

There was a bug filed recently that indicated that printing was
broken on certain printers. As a result of that discussion, it became
apparent that there was no criteria for printing to work at all, which
seems like an oversight.
I discussed this briefly with Matthias Clasen this morning and he
agreed that this should be treated as blocking for Workstation.
I'd like to propose that we add the following criteria to Beta for Fedora 30+:
* Printing must work on at least one printer available to Fedora QA.
"Work" is defined as the output from the device matching a preview
shown on the GNOME print preview display. (Note that differences in
color reproduction are not considered "non-working".)
and this to Final for Fedora 30+:
* Printing must work on at least one printer using each of the
(I don't know which ones to specify here, but we ought to try to
figure out a cross-section that covers a large swath of our expected
