Toolbx is a release blocker for Fedora 39 onwards

This is the second instalment of my 2023 retrospective series on Toolbx. 1 One very important thing that we did behind the scenes was to make Toolbx a release blocker for Fedora 39 and onwards. This means that the registry.fedoraproject.org/fedora-toolbox OCI image is considered a release-blocking deliverable, and there are release-blocking test criteria to ensure that the toolbox RPM is usable. Why do that? Earlier, there was no formal requirement for Toolbx to be usable when a new Fedora was released. That was a problem for a tool that’s so popular and provides something as fundamental as ..read more

by Miroslav Suchý

Copr is a build-system for anyone in the Fedora community. It hosts thousands of projects for various purposes and audiences. Some of them should never be installed by anyone, some are already being transitioned to the official Fedora Linux repositories, and the rest are somewhere in between. Copr gives you the opportunity to install 3rd party software that is not available in Fedora Linux repositories, try nightly versions of your dependencies, use patched builds of your favorite tools to support some non-standard use-cases, and just experiment freely. This article takes a closer look a ..read more

Build and publish multi-arch containers with Quay and GitHub Actions
Planet Fedora - Fedora People
by Fabio Alessandro Locati
1d ago
When I deploy a system, I always try to automate it fully. There are many reasons for this, one of which is that, in this way, the automation becomes the documentation for the system itself. Another reason that drives me to automate everything is my preference for clean systems. Another consequence of this preference I have is that in the last few years, I’ve moved many systems to a Fedora rpm-ostree flavor (eg: Fedora CoreOS, Fedora IoT, Fedora Atomic) with the various services running in containers managed directly by systemd via podman ..read more

Securing via systemd, a story

Last night I deployed a https://writefreely.org based blog and secured it with systemd by adding DynamicUser=yes. But the service itself could not write to the sqlite database.

I had to add a StateDirectory and used the same in WorkingDirectory so that the service works correctly ..read more

Working with multi-line logs in syslog-ng
Planet Fedora - Fedora People
by Peter Czanik
4d ago
Most log messages fit on a single line. However, Windows and some developer tools and services, like Tomcat, write multi-line log messages. These can come in various formats. For example, new log messages start with a date in a specific format. You use the multi-line-prefix() of the syslog-ng file() source to send multi-line messages as single messages instead of line by line. I must admit that I have never seen multi-line logs in production. I am not a developer, do not run Tomcat or Windows. However, recently I tested a software on Windows, which produced multi-line log messages. You can re ..read more
