Jan 17, 2022 geeqie upgrade and odd behavior when opening new views.

Linux Questions - Fri, 01/21/2022 - 00:03
Geeqie was upgraded to 1.7.1 in Current. Since then, I've had issues with opening views in new windows. Even after erasing .config and other .local locations where it's config files reside and restarting the program; the problem persists.

When selecting an image and 'view in New window', the window appears, but instead of an image or part of an image, the window is blank. It remains blank until one resizes the window. Something similar showed up when Current upgraded to Geeqie 1.6 and was 'fixed' after rebuilding it against updates to Samba, poppler and possible pango along with glibc updates.

Hopefully, this is not a 'New feature' in Geeqie, but due to Geeqie needing to be rebuilt after upgrading Samba, poppler and possible pango libraies. Samba was redone after the geeqie upgrade.

I'm curious if anyone else noticed other odd things in Geeqie lately.

During the implementation of OpenStack workloads, a common issue is fragmentation throughout the network, causing unforeseen performance issues. Fragmentation is normally difficult to address because networks can get complex, so the path of packets can be hard to trace or predict.

Encrypted Disk Passphrase Not Working Intermittently

Linux Questions - Thu, 01/20/2022 - 20:07
Asus X540U Laptop

Ubuntu 21.01 recently installed with encrypted disk on a laptop that had Windows 10. Had attempted to install Fedora but could only do so successfully if not encrypting disk.

I looked for options to disable secure boot in bios prior to wiping Windows, there were (and are) definitely none. It is possible that I should have done this from Windows.

Passphrase to decrypt disk at boot (first prompt) works most of the time but sometimes it will not. (not a complex passphrase but does contain a special character)

1) Is there somehow a conflict with secure boot from old Windows OS, and if so, how can I resolve?

2) Can I (should I) change the passphrase of encrypted hard drive to maybe give that a go?

Laptop is running flawlessly once booted but feel I cannot rely on it.

Thank you.

How to add a custom shell script to a RPM

Linux Questions - Thu, 01/20/2022 - 20:00
Hello all,

I am learning how to build RPM's and have a quick question I'm hoping someone can help me with.

I am running RHEL 7.9 OS.

I want to install the Zabbix-Agent RPM but would like for a shell script to run as part of the RPM install which re-configures the zabbix-agent.conf file to point the agent to a specific IP address.

The zabbix agent version is zabbix-agent.x86_64 5.0.19-1.el7.

I am familiar with some of the basics of creating RPM's but the part that i get confused on is the SPEC file. How do i set up a spec file to do the above and where in the tree structure does the RPM go and where does the shell script go?

Any help will be appreciated :)

Thanks
