MX Backup – Postfix Email Server | samhobbs.co.uk

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/09

Interesting as it has steps for both OpenSuSE and Debian each well suited for running on a Raspberry Pi.

[WayBackMX Backup – Postfix Email Server | samhobbs.co.uk

It seems postfix is a lot easier to configure than sendmail so I already like it.

First I need to read a bit more in Postfix greylisting.

I’ll need to catch up on Sam’s other parts with the postfix tag as well:

bash: `printf` supports `\e` just like `echo -e` does

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/07

Learned a few things when modifying https://github.com/gkotian/gautam_linux/blob/master/scripts/colours.sh

Note: `printf` supports emitting `ESC` (ASCII character `\033` aka `27` aka `0x1B`)as `\e` the same way that `echo` does

https://linux.die.net/man/1/printf
https://linux.die.net/man/1/echo

Format strings are at https://linux.die.net/man/3/printf
%-10s means left adjusted (aligned) string of length 10

I was investigating how the colour definitions on my OpenSuSE system actually work internally so I added some extra output: ${TYPE} and ${COLOUR}.

This was after updating my Raspberry Pi 3 with Tumbleweed to 20170920.

Not sure what do do now. Some searches didn’t reveal much:

Re: [opensuse-factory] dup –no-allow-vendor-change is now default

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/15

I totally missed this announcement 2 months ago:

after this update, zypper dup will default to –no-allow-vendor-change, whichhas been the recommended way for Tumbleweed for a long time now.

Source: Re: [opensuse-factory] dup –no-allow-vendor-change is now default

So Dominique was glad to “rub the salt” a bit (:

[WayBack/Archive.isDominique / DimStar‏ @DimStar Replying to @sysrich @jpluimers: for the record: –no-allow-vendor-change has become the default in Tumbleweed, see also http://dominique.leuenberger.net/blog/2017/06/review-of-the-week-201726/

It was documented at least on these places:

zypper errors on download.opensuse.org

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/13

If you see error message like below when performing zypper refresh or zypper dist-upgrade, then please inform the opensuse team (for instance Twitter or the #openSUSE-factory IRC channel) as this is part of the aftermath of the download.opensuse.org trouble that started last week.

Permission to access 'http://download.opensuse.org/ports/aarch64/tumbleweed/repo/oss/suse/setup/descr/appdata-icons.tar.gz' denied.

What happened to me with Raspberry Pi 3 and Tumbleweed is below and fixed because after I got in touch: the data restore had worked out OK, but the permissions didn’t.

I got there as the search for “Permission to access ‘http://download.opensuse.org/ports/aarch64/” got me to [WayBack] TUMBLEWEED Zypper Permission to access:

Unfortunately there was a catastrophic issue last week with the openSUSE download system (read: stuff is still broken and not all mirrors are fully functional).
