CentOS Blog: New CentOS Pastebin Instance

2018, szeptember 21 - 03:42

After many years of excellent service by the Oregon State University Open Source Lab the CentOS Project has decided to migrate our web-based pastebin instance to a self-hosted platform running on our infrastructure.  This has provided us the opportunity to move to a different solution based on the Stikked pastebin server which is a more modern solution with a number of features we felt would best benefit our user communities:

  • Encrypted pastes
  • Direct paste replies along with a 'diff' feature which we believe useful for developer collaboration
  • Burn on reading / immediate expiry on view
  • Anti-spam features
  • And a number of behind-the-scenes improvements

The web interface is available at https://paste.centos.org and from there you can paste content directly into the provided web form and optionally add your name or a paste title and even select the language of the paste if you wish the contents to be syntactically colored when displayed.  You are able to select a number of time periods for the paste's lifetime from the dropdown selection and may opt to have the paste delete itself on view, so called "burn on view".  The option also exists to encrypt your paste if you wish.  After you submit the form you can share the resulting URL with others.

Additionally we've made a command line client, cpaste, available to enable pasting directly from your servers / desktops to our pastebin instance.  This client is based on the Stikkit client by Petr Bena.  This package is in our "extras" repository and can be installed with:

yum --enablerepo=extras install cpaste

Usage information can be retrieved with:

cpaste --help

Examples illustrating how to how the command line client:

Paste a file directly to our server:

cpaste ~/problem.txt

Paste a python code snippet with a title of "code snippet" and an author name of "John Q. Public"

cpaste -l python -t "code snippet" -a "John Q. Public" -i ~/src/project/code.py

Paste the standard output of a process and return only the paste's url:

~/bin/process | cpaste -s

One notable difference between the new and old instances is that the new instance supports paste lifetimes of up to one day only.

We hope you find the new service useful.

We would also like to thank OSUOSL for providing the old pastebin instance for the past many years.

CentOS Blog: EPEL for armhfp

2018, szeptember 15 - 18:53

A few weeks ago, Fabian passed me the torch in our quest for a fully working EPEL rebuild for armhfp, that included access to the builders, the build system manager and a blind, unfunded trust that I wasn't going to break anything.

The plan up to that point was, "if it builds, great, if it doesn't, someone will have to fix it". Enter someone (me) completely clueless of what needed to be done and what I needed to know to actually do it.

Having absolutely no idea where to start, I decided to use repodiff against x86_64, to see if something really jumped at me and said "START HERE!!!!", but all it did was inform me of the hard truth, there were approximately 600 packages that were failing. I needed a quick win and an ego boost, and seeing that cinnamon was only missing a few rpms, I decided to start there.

A few days go by, the list keeps shrinking, I get a brutal fight to the death trying to bootstrap ghc, and finally I see the light at the end of the tunnel. With about 100 packages remaining, I start thinking that our plan wasn't that crazy after all.

Now, the list is 10 rpms long, and it is time to start testing everything. Since I have absolutely no idea what most of the packages that were built actually do, I have no way of testing, so please, install, test, break, fix and, most of all, report back.

If you already installed CentOS (and activated EPEL) using the instructions here, you should have everything you need to start hacking!!

Thanks for testing!
Pablo.

CentOS Blog: CentOS Dojo at FOSDEM (Feb 1, 2019) Call for Presentations

2018, szeptember 14 - 20:36

On February 1, 2019, we'll be holding our annual CentOS Dojo in Brussels, on the day before FOSDEM starts.

FOSDEM, as you probably know, is the annual Free and Open Source Developers European Meeting in Brussels - two days of presentations, projects, and hallway meetings with new and old friends.

For the last several years, CentOS has held a small meetup on the Friday before FOSDEM, and this year we'll once again be at the Marriott Grand Place, just a 3 minute walk from Grand Place in central Brussels. We'll have two tracks of CentOS-related content, and lots of space and time to meet other people in the CentOS community.

If you'd like to be on stage at this event, consider submitting a presentation here: https://goo.gl/forms/XkXbC2AZBgKvfDNF2

The call for presentations closes October 15th, 9am Eastern US time.

CentOS Blog: Hurricane Florence and the CentOS Community Build System

2018, szeptember 14 - 14:49

(A note from Brian Stinson, from the CI team.)

Some of you may know that the CentOS Community Build System, and CentOS CI Infrastructures are hosted in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I wanted to take this opportunity to let all of you know that outages are possible (but not expected) in the coming days as Hurricane Florence makes its way toward the US East coast. We are confident in the precautions taken by our datacenter vendor, and in the preparedness plans by our DC operations team.

If there happen to be outages, we will work to get things back as soon as we can.

Cheers!

We issued the following CESAs (CentOS Errata and Security Advisory) during August:

Errata and Bugfix Advisories

We issued the following CEBAs (CentOS Errata and Bugfix Advisory) during August:

SIG Updates

SIGs - Special Interest Groups - are where people work on the stuff that runs on top of CentOS. Here's some of the highlights from a few of our SIGs from the past month

Platform as a Service (PaaS) SIG
  • Origin 3.10 released, work on 3.11 is in progress
  • Introducing fkluknav as new SIG member
  • Discussing consuming Ansible RPMs from the Config Management SIG
  • Ricardo Martinelli presented at the CentOS Dojo at DevConf.us (video, slides)

SIG Reporting

If your SIG wants a report to appear in the newsletter, send your report to the centos-devel mailing list with a subject line containing "XYZ SIG Report" (where "XYZ" is the name of your SIG), and we'll include it in upcoming newsletters.

SIG meeting minutes may be read in full in the MeetBot IRC archive.

Events

CentOS participates in many events, in various capacities, in order to build our local communities all over the world.

Recent

In August, we were at three large events:

On August 4th through 5th, DevConf.in was held in Bengaluru, India, and CentOS was there, sharing space with Fedora. DevConf is an annual developers conference which is held in three different locations around the world.

Speaking of which, later in the month we also were at DevConf.US in Boston. This was the first DevConf in North America, and we were delighted to be there.

In addition to the main event, we ran a Dojo on the day before, with presentations covering a wide range of topics. The videos from all of the presentations at the event are now on our YouTube channel.

And, in the last week of August, we were at Open Source Summit North America in Vancouver. OSSummit is a great event in that we get a lot of people that may be either new to Linux, or at least to CentOS, and so we have the chance to teach them. But there's also representation from a huge range of industries, and so we get to learn about how CentOS is being used in many different applications.

(If you have photos from any of these events, please consider adding them to the CentOS group on Flickr.)

Upcoming

September looks pretty quiet on the events front (please tell me if you know of any relevant events!), but in October we have two great events.

First, we have the CentOS Dojo at CERN, on October 19th. This is a full day of CentOS technical talks at the legendary CERN facility in Meyrin, Switzerland. Like last year, there's an emphasis on cloud computing, but other topics are also covered. The schedule is published, and registration is open!

The following week, we'll be in Edinburgh for the Open Source Summit Europe. That's a week-long event covering a wide range of technical content around Linux and open source.

We hope to see you there!

CentOS Blog: SecureBoot : rolling out new shim pkgs for CentOS 7.5.1804 in CR repository – asking for testers/feedback

2018, augusztus 30 - 08:14

When we consolidated all CentOS Distro builders in a new centralized setup, covering all arches (so basically x86_64, i386, ppc64le, ppc64, aarch64 and armhfp those days), we wanted also to add redundancy where it was possible to.

The interesting "SecureBoot" corner case came on the table and we had to find a different way to build the following packages:

  •  shim (both signed and unsigned
  • grub2
  • fwupdate
  • kernel

The other reason why we considered rebuilding it is that the cert we were using has expired :

curl --location --silent https://github.com/CentOS/sig-core-SecureBoot/raw/master/CentOS_7/kernel/SOURCES/centos.cer | openssl x509 -inform der -text -noout|grep -A2 Validity

While technically it doesn't really matter for Secureboot itself, it was better to get a new key/cert rolled-in and use the new one for new builds.

That's where it's interesting as because shim embeds the certs in the Machine Owner Key (MOK), and that each other component used in the boot chain is validated against that (so grub2 first, then kernel and kernel modules) that means that once deployed , the new shim would not be able to boot previous grub2/kernel.

But there is a solution for that : instead of "embedding" only the new cert, we can have both the old one and new one, permitting us to still boot older kernels but also the new ones we'll build/push soon (built on the new build system), and that's what we used for that new shim package.

That's where we'd like you (SecureBoot users) to give us feedback about that new shim pkg. It was already validated on some hardware nodes, passed some QA tests, but we'd prefer to have more feedback.

Worth noting that such rebuild has also a patch that should fix an issue we had with shim not allowing to import key in MOK through mokutil (see https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=14050)

How can you test ?

If you're using UEFI with SecureBoot enabled , we have signed/pushed those pkgs to the CR repository (see https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR)

That repo is by default disabled, but following command would let you update shim :

yum update shim --enablerepo=cr

Then reboot and it should work like before, so validating the boot chain (while still using grub2/kernel packages signed with previous key)

We'd appreciate feedback on this list, or #centos-devel on irc.freenode.net

I'd like to thank Patrick Uiterwijk and Peter Jones for their help for
the patch and validation for that shim

CentOS Blog: Dojo at DevConf.us

2018, augusztus 21 - 11:18

This Thursday we held our first Dojo at DevConf.us in Boston. We had about 40 people in attendance, and had 9 presenters on a variety of topics.

I want to particularly draw attention to our keynote, by Brendan Conoboy, who discussed the relationship - past and future - between Fedora, CentOS, and RHEL, which is more complicated than many people understand. But we're working on simplifying those relationships, and Brendan does a great job of explaining where we're headed, and why.

The details of this event are in the CentOS Wiki and are being updated with slides and videos as they become available. All of the videos are in the event playlist on Youtube - check back over the coming week as we upload the remainder of the talks.

Our next event will be held at CERN in Meyrin, Switzerland, in October. Details are available at cern.ch/centos and we expect to post the schedule in the coming week.

CentOS Blog: DevConf.IN this weekend!

2018, július 31 - 18:16

Join us this weekend (August 4th - 5th) in Bengaluru for DevConf.in, the second annual Developers' Conference.

We want to draw particular attention to two talks.

Bama charan Kundu will be talking about the CentOS Container Pipeline project:

Various container build services offer developers to build their image with a git push and scan the container for known CVEs (as a paid service). What they don't provide is Dockerfile linting; scanners that would scan for available package updates (rpm, pip, npm, gem); a build process that rebuilds an image not only on git push but also when there's RPM update in its enabled repo or when its base image is updated.

Welcome to CentOS Container Pipeline project. It provides all these and more, out of the box, free of cost, on CentOS infra, and with a focus on open source developers. All it needs is the link to git repo containing the Dockerfile.

And Karanbir Singh will be delivering the closing keynote:

Open Source won! In this session, I would like to explore the effects this has on culture and impact beyond just the software development process; focusing on how we run and operate software today and into the future. As an existing or potential contributor to future services, as either a developer, an operator or manager, I will aim to give you the focus points helping you make good choices in the right directions. And most importantly, asking the right questions.

Additionally, CentOS will have a booth in the expo hall, so drop by for your CentOS stickers and swag! See you in Bengaluru!

CentOS Blog: Improving CentOS package delivery security with signed repository metadata

2018, július 9 - 17:31

With the release of CentOS 7.5.1804, the CentOS Project has taken the next big step in improving software delivery security by signing all repository metadata for CentOS 6 and CentOS 7 for all architectures, including the repositories for CentOS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) produced by the CentOS Community Build System (CBS).

Wait, what do you mean signed repository metadata?

As most users of Linux distributions know, software is delivered in the form of “packages” to users through repositories. Packages are installed by their package manager (such as YUM or DNF) by fetching information about the repository to identify what it can get to do a particular user action (install new package, upgrade existing ones, and so on).

But how do you validate that the software you are getting is the software you are supposed to get? Most Linux distributions do this by digitally signing the packages using a signature that uniquely identifies the distributor via GPG. The advantage of this is that no matter what mechanism you receive the package (via repository, direct download, or on a flash drive), you can validate the signature and be assured it is a package from the distribution.

But there is a gap here: how are you assured that the repository hasn’t been tampered with? This is a specific type of vulnerability that applies only to package repositories, because they provide files that contain an index of the software in the repository, and how to fetch them. The way to close this hole is to provide a means of verifying the repository metadata is good, too. This allows the package manager to verify that the metadata is what it should be and is from the distribution before starting to process the metadata. This can help with avoiding certain types of attacks due to malformed metadata files.

We started doing this in 2015 for the main CentOS core repositories, and now we’re offering this for all repositories published by the CentOS Project.

Sounds great! How do I use it?

At the time of this writing, we do not automatically validate the repository metadata. If you want to do this, simply add the following line to the YUM repository configuration file (They are *.repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d):

repo_gpgcheck=1

If you want to enforce this globally, you can set this in /etc/yum.conf instead, though be warned that repositories like Fedora EPEL will not work since Fedora Infrastructure is currently working on signing repository metadata.

I’m a SIG maintainer and I’d like to have this by default, what do I do?

Great question! If you’re a SIG maintainer and manage the repository configuration package (i.e. centos-release-* packages), then you can choose to make this the new default for repository configuration.

To do so, just simply add “repo_gpgcheck=1” to the .repo files in your package, and it will enable it. On next update, if the user hasn’t touched/modified the *.repo files, it’ll switch on. New installations will get it as well, too.

Again, though, if you use Fedora EPEL in your repo configuration, you must not add the setting to the EPEL section in your configuration.

CentOS Blog: Release for CentOS Linux 6.10 i386 and x86_64

2018, július 3 - 20:58

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS Linux
6.10 and install media for i386 and x86_64 Architectures. Release Notes
for 6.10 are available at:

http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.10

CentOS Linux 6.10 is derived from source code released by Red Hat, Inc.
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10. All upstream variants have been placed
into one combined repository to make it easier for end users.
Workstation, server, and minimal installs can all be done from our
combined repository. All of our testing is only done against this
combined distribution.

There are various changes in this release, compared with the
past CentOS Linux 6 releases, and we highly recommend everyone study the
upstream Release Notes as well as the upstream Technical Notes about the
changes and how they might impact your installation. (See the 'Further
Reading' section if the CentOS release notes link above).

All updates since the upstream 6.10 release are also on the CentOS
mirrors as zero day updates. When installing CentOS-6.10 (or any other
version) from any of our media, you should always run 'yum update' after
the install to apply these.

Users consuming our CentOS-CR repositories will already be running most
of the packages that make up CentOS-6.10, and all updates released since.
They will notice only the a few updates today when moving to CentOS
Linux 6.10. For more
information on the CR repository for future updates, see this link:
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR

Release Announcements for all updated packages are available here:
https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-cr-announce/2018-June/thread.html

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Upgrading From Prior Major CentOS Versions:

We recommend everyone perform a fresh reinstall rather than attempt an
in-place upgrade from other major CentOS versions (CentOS-2.1,
CentOS-3.x, CentOS-4.x, CentOS-5.x).

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Upgrading from CentOS-6.0 / 6.1 / 6.2 / 6.3 / 6.4 / 6.5 / 6.6 / 6.7 /
6.8 / 6.9

CentOS Linux is designed to automatically upgrade between releases
within a major version (in this case, CentOS-6). Unless you have edited
your yum default configuration, a 'yum update' should move your machines
seamlessly from any previous CentOS Linux 6.x release to 6.10. We also
test this in our QA cycles and have noticed no problems, any issues
would be mentioned in the Release Notes.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Downloading CentOS Linux 6.10 for new installs:

When possible, consider using torrents to obtain our ISOs. Usually it is
also the fastest means to download the distro.

The install media is split into various formats. We have made efforts to
ensure that most install types and roles can be done from DVD-1 itself,
and the minimal install ISO is only tested to deliver a minimal install
set, when used as an ISO format ( either on cd or usb ). While other
forms of installs ( eg. pxe delivered ) might work from the minimal ISO,
they are neither tested not supported. The only format where we support
the entire set of install options and delivery mechanisms is via the
complete CentOS Linux 6.10 tree, which can also be created by
consolidating all content from DVD1 and DVD2.

We no longer produce CD size images for the entire CentOS Linux 6
distribution, however the minimal install and netinstall iso images are
small enough to fit on all CD grade media.

Torrent files for the DVD's are available at :

i386:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.10/isos/i386/CentOS-6.10-i386-bin-DVD1to2.torrent

x86_64:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.10/isos/x86_64/CentOS-6.10-x86_64-bin-DVD1to2.torrent

If you download an ISO via torrent, leave it up for a couple hours to
share with other users who are downloading.

You can also use a mirror close to you to get any of our ISOs:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.10/isos/

If you need to update a local mirror, you can choose from our mirror
network ( http://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/ ). Most mirrors will
allow downloads over http, ftp and rsync.

Note: The x86_64 ISOs (minimal, netinstall, DVD1) should install on UEFI
machines. Secure Boot must be disabled to install CentOS 6. The Live
ISOs and i386 ISOs will not boot with UEFI.

Cloud Images:

Images for various on-premise and off-premise Cloud environments are
currently under development for CentOS Linux 6.10 and will be released in
the coming days. Everyone looking to join and help with the CentOS Cloud
efforts is encouraged to join the CentOS-devel list where such issues
are discussed ( http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel ).

Getting Help:

The best place to start when looking for help with CentOS is at the wiki
( http://wiki.centos.org/GettingHelp ) which lists various options and
communities who might be able to help. If you think there is a bug in
the system, do report it at http://bugs.centos.org/ - but keep in mind
that the bugs system is *not* a support mechanism. If you need supported
software with Support Level Agreements, people to call and response
times then we recommend Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

If you have questions you would like to field at us in real time, come
join the office hours on Wed or Thu of every week. You can find details
on these at http://wiki.centos.org/OfficeHours

Meet-ups and Events:

If you would like to get involved in helping organize, run, present or
sponsor a CentOS Dojo or even just want more details then join the
CentOS Promo list:
http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-promo and drop an email
introducing yourself. We are very keen to find help to run events around
the world, and also to find people who can represent CentOS at various
community events around the world. (Current Events List:
https://wiki.centos.org/Events )

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Contributing and joining the project:

We are always looking for people to join and help with various things in
the project. If you are keen to help out a good place to start is the
wiki page at http://wiki.centos.org/Contribute . If you have questions
or a specific area you would like to contribute towards that is not
covered on that page, feel free to drop in on #centos-devel at
irc.freenode.net for a chat or email the centos-devel list
(http://lists.centos.org).

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Thanks to everyone who contributed towards making CentOS Linux 6.10,
especially the effort put in, as always, by the QA
(http://wiki.centos.org/QaGroup) and Build teams.

A special shout out to all the donors who have contributed hardware,
network connectivity, hosting and resources over the years. The CentOS
project now has a fairly well setup resource pool, solely thanks to the
donors.

Enjoy!

CentOS Blog: Student Supercomputing is #PoweredByCentOS

2018, július 3 - 20:28

Last week at the ISC-HPC event in Frankfurt, I had the opportunity to speak briefly with the amazing student teams in the SCC - Student Cluster Competition. These students use commodity hardware to build supercomputers, with a limit of 3KW power consumption, and compete on a variety of benchmarks.

These teams are overwhelmingly powered by CentOS, which has the latest HPC tools and libraries, and is the defacto standard when it comes to spinning up a new supercomputing cluster.

12 teams competed, and I got to speak with four of them this year.

CentOS Blog: CentOS Atomic Host 7.1805 Available for Download

2018, június 15 - 22:54

The CentOS Atomic SIG has released an updated version of CentOS Atomic Host (7.1805), a lean operating system designed to run Linux containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and tracking the component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.

CentOS Atomic Host includes these core component versions:

  • atomic-1.22.1-3.git2fd0860.el7.x86_64
  • cloud-init-0.7.9-24.el7.centos.x86_64
  • docker-1.13.1-63.git94f4240.el7.centos.x86_64
  • etcd-3.2.18-1.el7.x86_64
  • flannel-0.7.1-3.el7.x86_64
  • kernel-3.10.0-862.3.2.el7.x86_64
  • ostree-2018.1-4.el7.x86_64
  • rpm-ostree-client-2018.1-1.atomic.el7.x86_64
Download CentOS Atomic Host

CentOS Atomic Host is available as a VirtualBox or libvirt-formatted Vagrant box, or as an installable ISO, qcow2 or Amazon Machine image. For links to media, see the CentOS wiki.

Upgrading

If you’re running a previous version of CentOS Atomic Host, you can upgrade to the current image by running the following command:

# atomic host upgrade Release Cycle

The CentOS Atomic Host image follows the upstream Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host cadence. After sources are released, they’re rebuilt and included in new images. After the images are tested by the SIG and deemed ready, we announce them.

Getting Involved

CentOS Atomic Host is produced by the CentOS Atomic SIG, based on upstream work from Project Atomic. If you’d like to work on testing images, help with packaging, documentation – join us!

You’ll often find us in #atomic and/or #centos-devel if you have questions. You can also join the atomic-devel mailing list if you’d like to discuss the direction of Project Atomic, its components, or have other questions.

Getting Help

If you run into any problems with the images or components, feel free to ask on the centos-devel mailing list.

Have questions about using Atomic? See the atomic mailing list or find us in the #atomic channel on Freenode.
