Hmm.. Does CentOS have a SIG user cloak? I'm interested in contributing to CentOS and Fedora EPEL for OS and Package level stuff, so, curious. :)
ExoUNX
good god
so much to update lol
Psi-Jack
Heh
ExoUNX
when was 6.7 released?
Psi-Jack
Earlier last week.
ExoUNX
anything notable?
Psi-Jack
Hmm, depends. ;)
fenrus02
release notes might be real helpful
Psi-Jack
sssd was updated with a number of new capabilities, LVM caching is now fully supported, SSLv3 and older insecure protocols have been disabled by default, etc.

fenrus02
heh. i was going to point at https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/6.7_Release_Notes/
Psi-Jack
Heh
Both are good. :)\
ExoUNX
yah checking now
glad to see SSLv3 or older disabled by default
now if server admins actually updated
fenrus02
md5 / rc4 should also be gone.
ExoUNX
beautiful
a small step in making a better internet
fenrus02
tls1.2 is not the default though iirc, nor is there any unified crypto trust-store or anything remotely close
you'll need 7 for those i think.
nate
Probably better to not make TLS 1.2 only default
ExoUNX
fenrus02, I can see why, might break applications for businesses.
Psi-Jack
heh
fenrus02
nate, 'only' ? no. just preferred. cipher ordering
nate
Ah well yeah prefered definitely would have been a better choice
Psi-Jack
Mostly what I run is 7, but I still have some 6.7 VM's around in my home lan. Work I mostly run 6 still, but trying to push to 7. ;)
nate
*preferred order
ExoUNX
still waiting for more software to support 7
fenrus02
anything specific lacking el7.1 support ?
ExoUNX
I could force install some things but I'd rather not risk it
Psi-Jack
Heck. I run my BBS system on CentOS 7.1. :D
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, is it custom or from an existing package
Psi-Jack
Well, custom. ;)
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, PHP?
         

Psi-Jack
I built up the rpm .spec files myself.
No, C.
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, nice
fenrus02
foss?
Psi-Jack
Real oldschool terminal BBS with internet protocols and FidoNet.
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, lol, support for openssl?
Psi-Jack
Not yet. :(
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, working on it
?*
Psi-Jack
Using stunnel for that. heh
fenrus02
ExoUNX, that hardly sounds "oldschool" :P
Psi-Jack
But yes, ssl support's coming, as well as IPv6
And UTF-8
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, what is it using now? ASCII?
Psi-Jack
CP437 terminal/telnet, ssh, rlogin, http, smtp, pop3, etc. ;)
fenrus02
rlogin? euwww
pop3? euwww more
Psi-Jack
Heh, IMAP is coming, but it doesn't make much sense, honestly, since it's a singular mailbox for email to/from bbs.
fenrus02
monolithic app? or collection of smaller apps?
Psi-Jack
Synchronet is monolithic, the FTN stuff is a collection of apps from Husky Project that I spent time making the rpm.spec's for to work specifically for CentOS.
One .spec builds multiple rpm's for each of the husky project tools. hpt (mail tosser), htick (tic processor), etc.
I'm working on an actual .spec to build Synchronet itself so it's easier to maintain and upgrade. ;)
fenrus02
husky.sf.net appears dead upstream. last release was mostly 2006, with one each 2009 / 2012 (out of 15)
Psi-Jack
It's not dead, they still work on it. :)
I see announcements on their fidonet forum. :)
fenrus02
no new point release in several years? that doesnt look good.
Psi-Jack
It's all in... cvs. :)
fenrus02
also, "not good"
ExoUNX
greeeeeeeeeat
another centos update broke one of my servers
GG
10/10 would update again
brb, gotta to go work and see what's wrong with it -__________________________________-
*wishes I had a KVM/IP system atm*
Bahhumbug
ExoUNX: Bug report #?
ExoUNX
Bahhumbug, :P
Bahhumbug, seems to have wiped my whole ifconfig setup
eth0 and eth1 were deleted
Bahhumbug
ExoUNX: Bug report #?
TommyC
I'm not finding anything like that in the recent bug reports that I'm looking through.
ExoUNX
no network manager to blame
eataudio
What version did you upgrade to/from?
ExoUNX
no extra repos not even epel, coming from 6.6 to 6.7
eataudio
Strange, I have done the same recently and no issues with ifconfig. Yeah, I'd log a bugreport when you get a chance detailing your setup.
ExoUNX
eataudio, yah I'll do when I go into work tomorrow, I just wanted to get home lol
Psi-Jack
ifconfig is also obsolete and should not be used.
But yeah, I've upgraded all my 6.6 systems to 6.7, no issues.
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, better alt?
Psi-Jack
ExoUNX: ip
ExoUNX
yah I updated 3 servers tonight, the other 2 were fine
eataudio
yeah, ifconfig is not included in 7 i believe, favoring `ip`
Psi-Jack
ifconfig, netstat, route, arp, were all obsoleted by iproute2's ip.
ip and ss.
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, haven't really used it yet
Psi-Jack
You should. :)
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, is ifconfig still being supported?
Psi-Jack
ifconfig is already literally broken, where ip uses all the correct current system calls.
ExoUNX: No.
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, are the configs for ip better?
or roughly the same syntax
Psi-Jack
I also suspect that ifconfig's ioctl calls it does will be soon removed from Linux, as like the old ioctl calls acpid used to do.
ExoUNX: "Configs?"
ExoUNX
Psi-Jack, when configuring adapters etc
Psi-Jack
ifconfig, nor ip have configuration files. But what you're asking is, is /etc/sysconfig/* for network settup still the same? Yes. CentOS has been using iproute2 to setup the network over ifconfig since CentOS 5, IIRC.
