About me
Came in contact with Clarkconnect back in spring 2002. Started with CC1.0 and soon joined the club as main translator for the Dutch Language Option. Installed, upgraded and tested every version since then.

Like to tinker and test with my CC-box. Started with an ancient Compaq Prolinea 486SX/25Mhz with 2.5 GB disk and 32MB. Now it's a Compaq Evo P4-2.4Ghz with 2GB Ram and 80+ 2 x 500Gb HDD ;-)

Hi Marcel,

When can we expect the first beta of ClearOS 7?
We're at the stage where we are doing a final round of auditing for the apps included in the beta. It's always hard to estimate a firm date, but it's probably somewhere between 10 to 20 days from now. Upstream just released 7.1 so we'll no doubt release the ClearOS beta on this latest version.

It looks like the Samba update from ClearOS Core has been pulled? I'll ask the "ClearOS repo king" for more information.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:6.6 x64 install issue in the forums.
We seem to be having another round of blank screens in ClearOS 6.6. If possible, try changing the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/vm.conf to:


Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
    Device        "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "800x600" "640x480"

And then reboot.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:Is the httpd service required by default in the forums.

Httpd is not required. The web-based administration tool in ClearOS runs off a sandboxed Apache HTTP web server.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:BUG - dnsmasq init script? in the forums.
It's a bug, but a cosmetic one. The $NETWORKING parameter should always be defined (in /etc/sysconfig/network) which in turn removes the requirement for the quotes. However, the Dnsmasq init script (and many others) should not assume that $NETWORKING is defined. What is in your /etc/sysconfig/network?

If you can get access via SSH, try putting the following in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/vm.conf


Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
    Device        "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "800x600" "640x480"

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Is the .htaccess file running ? mod_rewrite directive issues in the forums.
If I recall correctly from helping someone this week with a similar issue, it is the '-FollowSymLink' that is causing you grief.

In flexshare, set "FollowSymLinks" to enabled and try again.

FYI - your /var/log/httpd/access_log would have pointed you in the right direction.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:PHP openldap_directory warnings from app-samba-core update 1.6.8-1.v6 in the forums.
Hi Tony,

The error is triggered by a Samba SID cleanup script. In this particular case, it's harmless but I would still like to get to the bottom of it. Could you create the following test script (e.g. in /tmp/mytest.php):



// B O O T S T R A P

$bootstrap = getenv('CLEAROS_BOOTSTRAP') ? getenv('CLEAROS_BOOTSTRAP') : '/usr/clearos/framework/shared';
require_once $bootstrap . '/bootstrap.php';

// D E P E N D E N C I E S

use \clearos\apps\groups\Group_Manager_Factory as Group_Manager_Factory;
use \clearos\apps\groups\Group_Engine as Group_Engine;


// M A I N

$group_manager = Group_Manager_Factory::create();
$details = $group_manager->get_details(Group_Engine::FILTER_ALL);

Then run the script:

chmod 755 /tmp/mytest.php

Do you seen any of the groups listed in the output without a "members" list? An empty list is fine, I'm looking for a group that doesn't have "members" defined at all.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:Serviio 1.5.1 on its way in the forums.
Many thanks Fred! FYI: Fred also provided us with updated ffmpeg and x265 RPM spec files. I have been able to get a variant built in our development (mock) environment, so we should be able to get things going through the build system soon.

Peter Baldwin, Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Kernel Panic after automatic update in the forums.
The 2.6.32-431 series (RHEL6.5) was not the best kernel series. We held it back on the Professional Edition for quite some time and ended up supplementing it with newer drivers. The 2.6.32-504 series (RHEL 6.6) seems to be much much better so far.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re: Can't install kernel source for COS 6.5 2.6.32-431.1.2.v6.x86_64 in the forums.
For now, I have uploaded all the kernels to clearos7.clearfoundation.com/kernels/ The debug/debuginfo packages are excluded to save disk space, but are available if needed.

There was an issue getting the seed going at Terasaur. I'll see if I can get it working today.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:ClearOS will not automatically update Java in the forums.
Confirmed. The Software Updates app does not parse the package name properly.

Tracker: tracker.clearfoundation.com/view.php?id=2220
Github fix: github.com/clearos/app-software-updates/...8fd730c14b2202811bcf
Build info: buildsys.clearfoundation.com/plague/job.psp?uid=4985

The update should be hitting the mirrors in a few hours.

Hi Jared,

Certainly does look interesting...Marc actually referenced this in a feature tracker...see here.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re: System won't update in the forums.
In cases like this, I'd recommend one of the following:

1. Upgrade broken dependencies first, then full update. In your case:


yum --enablerepo=clearos-core,clearos-contribs upgrade hal* libvirt*

Followed by:

yum upgrade

2. Upgrade using --skip-broken


yum --skip-broken upgrade

Though, #2 won't won't solve your issue going forward until you do something (upgrade, remove packages etc.).

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Clear OS 6.6 Professional Release Announcement in the forums.
Hi David,

Message received!

There's a lot of things we could have done better, and communication as you've mentioned, is so critical to those on the receiving end.

We didn't actively push out any notifications through the myriad of social tools available today. Our bad for keeping you guys in the dark.

6.6 was a strange release in that it overlapped with the v7 beta and resources being allocated for the new 'unified website' for ClearOS. Not an excuse...just a perfect storm.
