Re: Is epel8.playground broken?

After no hints, I assumed bugs and filed bugzilla reports.

Is epel8.playground broken?

Or it is just me, or maybe is epel has pre-release 8.2 packages (or perhaps hasn't released 8.1)?? I just tried to install (available) ddclient to my updated 8.1 machine - $ sudo dnf install ddclient Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:31 ago on Fri 22 May 2020 12:49:30 PM EDT.

Re: postfix service is not starting

When it bombs, what does journalctl -xe say about it? Any hints in /var/log/maillog ? What changed right before this started to crash?
- just ideas

I can't remember quite how I found the problem with mine, but your answer is in logs on your machine.

Re: Samba connection too slow

Have you looked at Activities/System Monitor/Resources (if you're running Gnome) - real time graphs there can help. You did supply that you were running wired & wifi - Is there any chance those transfers are going via the wifi? Are you running LAN and wifi simultaneously? (shouldn't be) If cable plu...

Re: warning: cannot open /etc/hosts.allow: Permission denied

And if as pjsj2 inquired, it was compromised - there is NO coming back from that.

Re: warning: cannot open /etc/hosts.allow: Permission denied

I don't see a fix for this as even within folders permissions often differ by file. As a last-ditch attempt to avoid a rebuild, you might try " yum reinstall \*.\* " - it's going to take a while. You'll have to do it on each machine for which groups were changed. If that followed by a reboot doesn't...

Re: warning: cannot open /etc/hosts.allow: Permission denied

When I messed up permissions badly and yum reinstall didn't fix it, I wound up doing a clean system install. I didn't want to, but it fixed the problem.

Re: Cacti - update crash

Well - I had all the tables from sept 8 which I copied in and rebooted the server. I now cannot even login - the tables apparently aren't constructed in a way the program can access them. None of the only 3 user ids/passwords work. I tried yum re-install cacti which didn't help. The hope was to re-t...
