Pignus - Fedora 23 on model 1's

No, I thought that only had the fix for CVE-2014-6271. According to

https://security-tracker.debian.org/tra ... -2014-7169

The fix for CVE-2014-7169 is in 4.2+dfsg-0.1+deb7u3 as well.

Re: bash bug / shell shock now fixed on Raspbian

Most distributions seem to have pushed a fix for CVE-2014-7169, but I can't find it in the Raspbian repository:
http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/b/bash/

Am I looking in the wrong place?

Edit: Nevermind; the patch is in that version.

Re: Pidora Temporary DNS Fix

There's actually a much easier way. Just:

Code: Select all

echo "198.57.186.36  pidora.ca" >> /etc/hosts
When the issue is resolved, just delete the last line of /etc/hosts.

Re: Pidora 2014 now available.

In /etc/yum.repos.d/ you will find three files: # ls /etc/yum.repos.d/ pidora.repo pidora-rpfr-updates.repo pidora-updates.repo Edit these three files, and change references to 'pidora.ca' to 'pidora.proximity.on.ca'. Or you could just wait a little while for DNS to update. Edit: It's back for me.

Re: Wifi not recognised - yum update

Was your kernel updated? The kernel has the drivers for all hardware, so I would assume so. You can check by opening a terminal, and (as root) running: ls -ltr /boot/kernel* If you see multiple entries of the form 'kernel-x.y.z...img' then you probably updated. You can easily go back to the previous...

Re: Kernel update fails with recent RPFR update

That looks like a packaging error with the Pidora kernel. Personally, I don't use the Pidora kernel, because it's so old. If you'd like to try the latest upstream kernel built with the default configuration for the Raspberry Pi, I build them and put them in my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j4m...

Re: Who is interesting to support Pidora?

Excellent news.
Why the pidora web site is not updated according to this info?
I mean, why do we need to investigate to get this kind of info?
Resources are very likely constrained.
If you have the skills and would like to help, they can always use qualified people.

I think you may be misunderstanding what you just posted.

The "unofficial Fedora remix" for the Raspberry Pi is currently Pidora. This is not supported by the Fedora Project.

But not as Spin like Pidora.
Fedora ARM is not supported on the Raspberry Pi; that's why Pidora exists.
