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.

David Clayton replied to the topic Re: No DNS Resolution for LAN Clients in the forums.
Bingo!

Code:

# except-interface=eth5
no-dhcp-interface=eth5



as soon as I put the # and re-started the service DNS worked perfectly on the LAN.

The line was initially put in to prevent clients picking up a DHCP address, however this had the effect of stopping DNS - the second line is the correct way to achieve the desired result.

Its so annoying that it was me who put the line in! (in my defence it was several years ago...I had completely forgotten)

Thank you Urban + +all

Hi Malcolm / Richard,

The LAN clients are currently configured with a different DNS server - hence why I have manually specified the DNS server to use on my lookup (10.1.1.4 is the COS):

Code:

C:\Users\DavidClayton>nslookup bbc.co.uk 10.1.5.12
Server:  dc02.bataltd.co.uk
Address:  10.1.5.12

Non-authoritative answer:

          212.58.244.18
          212.58.244.20
          212.58.246.103


C:\Users\DavidClayton>nslookup bbc.co.uk 10.1.1.4
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.

I doubt that it has ever worked, as I have never used it on this system before. The address isn't specified by DHCP as it isn't required for LAN clients, but it should resolve names none the less.

I can confirm this is the same for other LAN clients.

As shown in my first post, from the console it is happy resolving both from the LAN interface and on the loop back:
Code:

[root@cb300 network-scripts]# nslookup bbc.co.uk 10.1.1.4
Server:         10.1.1.4
Address:        10.1.1.4#53

Address: 212.58.246.104

Address: 212.58.244.18

[root@cb300 network-scripts]#



Wireshark shows that there are no data packets returned from the COS box at all, hence why I feel this is could be a firewall / permissions / listing on a specified port type issue.

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:

Code:


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



And then reboot.

Hello,

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?

David Clayton created a new topic No DNS Resolution for LAN Clients in the forums.
hi all,

I must have something really obvious here, and even though I've had a quick look on the forum I can't seem to find anything.

The clear box resolves (therefore the DNS resolve peer are working):

Code:

[root@cb300 sbin]# nslookup bbc.co.uk 10.1.1.4
Server:         10.1.1.4
Address:        10.1.1.4#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   bbc.co.uk
Address: 212.58.244.20



but I can't get anything from my LAN PC

Code:

C:\Users\DavidClayton>nslookup bbc.co.uk 10.1.1.4
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  10.1.1.4



I thought about it being the firewall, but adding port 53 TCP/UDP made no difference.

Another post I read suggested adding DNS1=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to the LAN ifcfg-ethX

Is there something really obvious I'm missing?

David Clayton created a new topic !pluto failure!: exited with error status 134 (signal 6) in the forums.
Hi all,

I've started noticing the following in the logs - no real pattern to frequency

Code:

Feb 23 02:14:31 cb300 ipsec__plutorun: !pluto failure!: exited with error status 134 (signal 6)
Feb 25 02:29:43 cb300 ipsec__plutorun: !pluto failure!: exited with error status 134 (signal 6)

Feb 26 16:53:05 cb300 ipsec__plutorun: !pluto failure!: exited with error status 134 (signal 6)



The error is preceded by

Mar 3 01:18:00 cb300 ipsec__plutorun: !pluto failure!: exited with error status 134 (signal 6)




The earliest this was recorded was Feb 23rd. I have made no changes to the VPN configuration for several months, so nothing to do with a change.

On Feb 20th the 6.6 update was installed by YUM

Code:

Feb 20 05:07:08 Updated: openswan-2.6.32-37.el6.x86_64
Feb 20 05:01:34 Installed: kernel-2.6.32-504.8.1.v6.x86_64



The box is currently running 2.6.32-358.23.2.v6.x86_64 (as I haven't re-booted yet the new kernel hasn't been loaded).

It seems a little too coincidental that the Pluto error isn't related to either of the updates.

The log also records

Code:

Mar 3 01:18:11 cb300 ipsec_starter[2810]: while loading 'MM': bad addr leftnexthop=rekey=yes [illegal (non-DNS-name) character in name]

however I don't think this is related to the Pluto error, more likely due to me specifying an IP.

There is mention of the error at openswan although the post is from 2011.

It doesn't seem to be having an effect on my VPN users, as (luckily) the error occurs out of hours, and from what I can see in the logs, it doesn't seem to drop the tunnel.

I'm guessing you are going to advise a re-boot to load the new kernel and see if the error goes away, but I'm curious to know if you have seen this on any other systems.

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):

Code:


#!/usr/clearos/sandbox/usr/bin/php
<?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;

clearos_load_library('groups/Group_Manager_Factory');
clearos_load_library('groups/Group_Engine');

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// M A I N
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

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



Then run the script:

chmod 755 /tmp/mytest.php
/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.

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 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.

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.

Confirmed. The Software Updates app does not parse the package name properly.

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