Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:HOWTO: Force Google Safe Search and block HTTPS sites in the forums.
That's much cleaner to implement and it allows SSL too! The feature is queued up to be done in ClearOS 7.0 (tracker)

Getting closer! We now have a 3-stage RPM build process figured out. Now we have to get it done in the confines of the build system.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:Broken Update, Missing Dependency in the forums.
The "mesa" package was bootstrapped in a strange way and we now have all hands on deck getting it built in a sane way. From the "mesa" changelog, we can see that upstream did two or three iterations to get the RPM built properly:


* Tue Apr 22 2014 Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> 10.1.1-1
- Bootstrap stage three, re-enable demos

* Tue Apr 22 2014 Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> 10.1.1-0.2
- Bootstrap stage two, enable GLU

* Tue Apr 22 2014 Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> 10.1.1-0.1
- Rebase to Mesa 10.1.1

Hi Guys,

Pete's aware of the issue..looks like we missed this app with the repo shuffle that was necessary for preparation for 6.6 and 7....It will be resolved shortly.

What errors are you seeing? Anything in dmesg after you try and mount it?

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Owncloud installation in the forums.
Hi Patrick,

I doubt installing OwnCloud from their sources will 'break' anything...., but then, you've just touched on one of the advantages to buying it in the Marketplace...a lot of work/time has been spent making sure the installation on ClearOS goes smoothly and is automated to every extend possible. Hence, the convenience of essentially 'one clicking' to install via Marketplace. The other value add is the tight integration with ClearOS directory API.

Haven't been any updates lately that might affect this...and mine is still working fine...

I'm assuming you know about the RAID app and it just doesn't do everything you want it to do...it gets you part way though.

Looked at the Webmin...ya, that's quite a bit of work. I'd estimate 2-3 days to extend the RAID tool set and add LVM support (which is also falling under similar scope to the Storage Manager app.

There's no formal bounty program in effect...we have been contracted to write code for specific features, but I know that doesn't hit on what you're looking to do...essential crowd fund an app.

Out of curiosity, what RAID controller are you looking to support...or if its for software RAID, what feature are you looking for?

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:ClearOS 6.6.0 Beta Thread in the forums.
Hi all,

The "clearos-core" repository is now version 6.6 (though one of the packages failed to rebuild). If you have it enabled, you will be getting the upstream 6.6 updates. It would be nice to have a public "clearos-core-testing" repository, but that hasn't happened yet. Since the "clearos-core" repo is for command line hackers only, it is perceived to be not commercially important to ClearOS Professional subscribers. Though I don't like the policy, I know that it's all balance between resources and keeping customers happy.

In a strange twist, the move back to CentOS in ClearOS 7 means that "core" (aka CentOS) updates will be handled through a more thorough QA process.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re: Plex does not see media files in the forums.
I've had issues with this, but completely unrelated (I think) to file permissions) and something to do with naming conventions. I've been too lazy to follow this document (specific to TV shows) but have always assumed that because I've ignored it, I'm going to run into issues.
