Another week, another rawhide update. 🙂

This week saw the Fedora 20 mass rebuild finish and land. This time it finished in under 3 days, which I think is a record. Monday’s rawhide included all those rebuilds, so if you are running rawhide likely you had to update almost every package on your machine (just barring those that failed rebuild). Often after these there’s a number of broken deps and things that didn’t rebuild properly. This time is no exception. The only one that hit my laptop was the nm-connection-editor needing a rebuild against the new gnome-bluetooth. Everything upgraded pretty smoothly here after fixing that.

The ipv6 NetworkManager crash I have been hitting was fixed today by dcbw. 🙂 Much appreciated and quick work.

I was also seeing intel video crashes here. I’m still not sure what the issue is there, but rawhide has sna accel enabled, I switched back to the older uxa and things have been very stable again. I’ll likely try and poke at this some more after I get back from flock. If anyone needs to do the same, just add a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with:


Section “Device”

Identifier  “Intel Graphics”

Driver      “intel”

Option      “AccelMethod”  “uxa”


Nightly rawhide boot.img’s were not composing right after mass rebuild due to broken deps, but they are working starting today. There was a last minute nfs issue on arm that kept it from making a boot.img, but that should be fixed in tomorrow’s rawhide and we should have the full set of boot.img’s tomorrow hopefully.

Finally if you have a package that uses the ‘hardened build’ macro, and your package uses libtool, do make sure it’s actually working for your package (use the hardening-check package available in repos). We are working on a fix to that macro for this case, but it would be good to look and make sure your package is or isn’t affected by this. See bug 978949 for more info.
