    For example ASRock B560 Pro4.
    I only found this on Linux in the manual:

    Legacy USB Support
    Enable or disable Legacy OS Support for USB 2.0 devices. If you encounter USB
    compatibility issues it is recommended to disable legacy USB support. Select UEFI
    Setup Only to support USB devices under the UEFI setup and Windows/Linux
    operating systems only.

    Also the same for the ASRock B560 Steel Legend.

    Here are also some other motherboards that I'm considering: ASUS PRIME B560-PLUS, Gigabyte B560M AORUS ELITE, Gigabyte B560M D3H, Gigabyte B560 HD3

    For Gigabyte B560M D3H and B560 HD3 I found this:
    Due to different Linux support condition provided by chipset vendors, please download Linux driver from chipset vendors' website or 3rd party website.

    So, even the 7.9 version lacks support for the B560 chipset?
    Is there a 7.9.1 version in the works with B560 support? :)
    Or 8.0 with support of the old bandwidth manager? :) Yes, I know, wishful thinking :)

    Replied. I think the spec file may need adjusting.

    2. I will try to take a look at your stellar spec file (the gitlab link is access restricted, but I can download the src.rpm from "updates-testing" repo and unpack it) during the weekend or so. But please understand that I am not an expert ;) . Here is a good documentation on packaging: Fedora packaging Guidelines where you will find good info. For %build and other scriptslets, look here: RPM Scriptlets.
    Just about anyone is more expert than me! I've poured over docs in the past and I find it heavy going. As far as I can make out, %build is just a section header rather than a macro. I've added it to my builds at home, but don't want to push as it will need a version bump for such a trivial change.

    Yes it is possible. What is the exact m/b? You could try googling that instead.
    I tried building the 7.9 iso this morning but hit a couple of glitches so I don't know when it will be out. I've had to ask the Clearcenter team for help. Note that a 7.9 iso is not necessarily the panacea.

    So, if I buy the new B560 motherboard it could happen, that I won't be able to install ClearOS?
    Do you maybe know, when will the installation disk/iso for the ClearOS 7.9 be available?

    Re: Install Python 3.5

    Python 3.6 is available and you may even have it installed already:And all the packages (use these rather than "pip" if you can:

    OK, as I suspected this was not going to be easy. If you really want to build packages yourself my advice is that you start with a much easier package... :)

    Domoticz has always been on the bleeding edge when it comes to dependencies on system components and this time it is "worse" than it ever was. It now requires a much more modern version of C-compiler, Cmake, OpenSSL, Boost library etc than what is (normally) available in ClearOS 7. After hours of trial and errors I think I now have a method do to this in a way that will be compatible with the rest of the ClearOS platform and its Koji build environment.

    But before I go ahead and make a test-build I need to understand if a few additional packages and a clearos-repositoriy that I have not used before are available for my build in Koji.I am currently waiting for some input on that.

    Given this, I will likely make a first test-build in about one week from now, and I expect to face some more challenges at that time too. So my best guess right now is that there might be a Domoticz "beta" version in contribs-testing repo in about 2 weeks from now. I will post in this thread when it is ready for testing.

    Hi Frederick,

    I was already afaid it would not be easy. The previous update was to my knowledge also not easy.
    Would be great i you can succeed, espacially when a new stable version will be released this can be a good test-case ;)
    Centos7 is not helping as far i can see and the packages are outdated at the moment.

    Again, I appreciate your effort a lot.
    Let me know if i can help with something

    Openssl11 is an epel package and seems to be separate from openssl.

    When trying to get stellar-core going, I had to push an update to the mock configs to enable the SCLo repos. This helped the build system and Shad, I think, had to do another tweak.

    BTW, I am still finding my way here. Can you have a quick look at my spec file as I don't have a %build in it, so it looks like everything is after the %prep section. Should I have a %build section before the autogen.sh line? Does %build do anything or is it just a convenient separator?

    @Nick,
    Thanks for the info. This is more or less the same method that I have used. However I need the devtoolset-9 and openssl11 packages. And talking about throwing the full book at it: I put the entire %build section in a scl enabled shell...

    Since you obviously have been using the SCLo repos, (and I assume openssl11 from epel is available), then I will go ahead and make a try real soon... :) Just need to prepare for the domoticz build with an updated libopenzwave build that needs to be in place first.

    I can't find any useful information on it. Normally out can search for strings like "b560 centos", "b560 el7" and so on but I am not getting any sensible hits. Note that ClearOS is compatible with the Elrepo kernels and they are bleedin' edge so at least they should work. The issue may then be how to install ClearOS in the first place to be able to update the kernel. Also the current installation disk for ClearOS is 7.7. We have not yet produced one for 7.9.
