Regressions since 4.11.11: 1. [i915] if external display is connected via HDMI, console output (esp. prompt for LUKS password) is no longer displayed on it (only on internal LCD). 2. [usb] keyboard and mouse input (connected via Logitech Unifying receiver, USB ID 046d:c52b) becomes erratic, hanging every few seconds and making the machine almost unusable until I disable USB autosuspend for the receiver USB device in powertop (I have powertop.service enabled).

After updating nmap and nmap-ncat. I no longer have /usr/bin/ndiff installed. This is unexpected and wrong.

dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install /usr/bin/ndiff

brings it back, but I shouldn't have to manually install another package to restore what I had before the update.

Works for me and fixes the bug, thanks.

BZ#1384871 pflogsumm: many warnings when parsing logs with IPv6 addresses
Test Case Postfix

Clarification: dnf segfaults each time until rpm --rebuilddb is invoked after this update.

karma

Causes dnf to segfault twice during "dnf upgrade". Unfortunately abrt is able to open a bug report only for one of them (first backtrace is unusable). I had to run rpm --rebuilddb to fix this. Filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1460303 .

Also, @besser82 , giving karma to your own submissions (you edited and added packages, then upvoted them) is gaming the karma system.

It works for me, please push to stable. I'll push myself if no response for a few days. This is breaking the upgrade path from F24 (where the corresponding update is stable already).

Why is there no mention of a switching from libidn to libidn2 since 3.5.8 in the release notes?

I see. That's the kind of information that would be extremely valuable in the release notes. Please make sure you include it next time your update adds new dependencies. Thanks.

What kind of update description is this? Come on... Also, you haven't explained or even mentioned the new dependency on libfastjson. So now I have two json libraries on my system where I had just one before (json-c is still required by abrt, so I can't remove it). And no, the argument that it takes just 56KB on disk isn't valid. Now, I did find out that upstream switched from any json-c compatible library to libfastjson on 2016-02-03, but the point is I shouldn't have to figure out why there's a new dependency on my own. Not to mention that introducing new dependencies is against stable updates policy. As is jumping from 8.12 to 8.24. It seems like a big change which should be avoided in N-1 stable release unless there's a good reason. I don't see any.

Works for me, no regressions noted and the required dependency is in place.

BZ#1395714 perl-Net-Server should depend on perl-IO-Socket-INET6

It seems mock grew a dependency on SMTP daemon and redhat-lsb-core (due to a new dependency on python3-distro), which is not documented in the package changelog or the release notes above. Please explain why I have to have an MTA installed on a development machine? This update pulls in 8 new packages in total without any explanation:

ed
m4
python3-distro
redhat-lsb-core
redhat-lsb-submod-security
spax
(something providing smtpdaemon)
util-linux-user

Please note that the corresponding hplip-plugin is not available yet, so this update breaks printing for all printers which require it. I reported (another) bug upstream: https://bugs.launchpad.net/fedora/+source/hplip/+bug/1644932 .

According to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis , e10s on FF50 is supported with extensions marked as "multiProcessCompatible", which ABP 2.9.5.1 does have in install.rdf, so.. a bug in Firefox, perhaps? Thanks for testing!

Sorry, it was wrong of me to give negative karma here. The applet looks a bit different (the icon looks different and the menu is a bit smaller), but functionally the same. However, the issue of adding 19 packages of dependencies in the middle of stable release lifecycle remains.

karma

Hold on. Switching to a different (Qt5) UI library (= changing user experience) is against stable updates policy. Also, this drags in additional 19 packages which I didn't have to install before. This is not acceptable without good justification. Saying that "The firewall applet has been ported from Qt4 to Qt5." is not a justification at all.

After removing local modifications and restarting tor, I don't see any AVC alerts.

Sorry for not catching this earlier, but hplip-plugin-3.16.9 is not available, so this breaks printing for me again. Could you add a check for existence of the corresponding hplip-plugin version to your update workflow? http://www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/hplip-3.16.9-plugin.run in this case. Bug reported upstream as well: https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1630028 .
