Kolab Now: Another Round of Updates

This weekend has seen a variety of systems being issued either of, or combination of, the following commands; yum -y update yum –enablerepo=kolab-16-updates-testing -y update puppet agent -t –no-noop reboot rm -f /dev/null; mknod -m 666 /dev/null c 1 3 I don’t expect everyone to know and understand what these pieces mean, so I’ll divide… Continue reading Kolab Now: Another Round of Updates

Kolab Now: Disabled IMAP Proxy

Since last weekend’s upgrade of Kolab Now to Kolab 16, some customers have reported IMAP connection and folder synchronization issues. I have therefore elected to bypass the IMAP proxy used to filter groupware folders, basically returning all IMAP client connections to the same behaviour and connection end-points you were accustomed to before. While our tests… Continue reading Kolab Now: Disabled IMAP Proxy

I disagree. One can arguably not… Continue reading Purposefully Not the Center of Attention

Dear Lazyweb: No video for VLC on Fedora 26?

Dear Lazyweb, even though Fedora 26 is not yet released, I’ve upgraded — now, VideoLAN isn’t displaying video any longer. If I start it with —no–embedded–video I do get video, but it doesn’t seem to be able to run or switch to/from fullscreen. Resetting my preferences has not helped so far. I would appreciate to… Continue reading Dear Lazyweb: No video for VLC on Fedora 26?
