  • ClearOS 7.4 Community Edition Released

    We are excited to announce that ClearOS 7.4 has been released to the ClearOS Community Users. Your Community edition servers should be or have been updated already. As this release contains a new kernel, it is advised that you restart your machine during a service window in order to apply the new kernel. Changes to ClearOS since the release of 7.3 include:

    ClearOS Marketplace:

    Microsoft SQL Server app
    Wordpress (Beta) app
    Kapano app (Zarafa Replacement) (https://www.clearos.com/resources/documentation/clearos/content:en_us:7_kb_zarafa_to_kopano_upgrade)
    PHP Engine app
    LetsEncrypt (imminent)
    Dynamic Firewall (imminent)
    2-Factor Authentication for Webconfig (imminent)

    ClearOS Platform Improvements:

    Backend SSSD improvements
    OpenLDAP improvements such as LMDB improvements
    Samba updates disable NTLMv1
    Improved backend Clustering support
    SSL/TLS certificate verification for HTTP client by default in Python
    Improvements to Perl modules
    NFS server now support limited copy-offload. Settings consolidated in nfs.conf.
    Improvements to support of Intel PCH devices
    RAID chunk size support in Anaconda
    Anaconda now support IPoIB interfaces
    Improvements to Anaconda Kickstart parameters
    NVMe driver updated
    Better random number generation support in kernel
    Improved kernel support for switch and virtual switch processes
    Framework for ‘usbguard’ to prevent access to unauthorized USB devices
    Improvements to openssh and openssl
    Improvements to libreswan
    LVM support for RAID level takeover and reshaping which allows for conversion between RAID types and RAID parameters
    Backend Certificate improvements

    ======================================
    Please report any issues with the Community Release to the forums in this thread or a new thread that indicates the issue in relation to 7.4. Much of the backend engineering makes significant changes to the kernel in preparation to the modernization that will take place in ClearOS 8. Some marketplace apps listed in this list will appear within a short period after the release.

    Users of Home and Business will be updated soon.

  • If anyone is using the following NIC drivers compiled by me:

    kmod-e100
    kmod-e1000e
    kmod-ne2k-pci
    kmod-via-rhine
    kmod-zd1211rw

    before you next reboot, please install the updated ones from here. The e1000e is probably not too important as it will revert to the stock driver. The other drivers must be updated or your NIC will stop working. Also note, that once you have updated the driver, the NIC will no longer work if you boot to an old kernel.

    Users of the kmod-r8168 and kmod-r8169 drivers are OK as the drivers will update themselves during the upgrade. ClearOS are now hosting them. You will also be able to boot to an older kernel but, if you do, the NICs will revert to using the built-in r8169 driver.

    Also, please note that this problem will repeat when ClearOS reverts to a stock kernel, but it will affect all users of ClearOS kmod NIC drivers.

  • The number of packages is a red herring (you can tell by looking in /var/log/yum.log). Have you forwarded the file to Peter?

  • LDAP was the second thing I checked and it is running. I am still dissecting the logs, so please bear with me as I make progress. :) I am seeing a lot of "GRE: Bad checksum from pptp" errors along with "Input/output error, usually caused by unexpected termination pptp" errors in the messages log. I am also seeing "Peer {username} failed CHAP authentication" errors. System logs are showing that incoming GRE and TCP are allowed for PPTP. Secure logs show the usual "pam_unix(ppp:session)" opening/closing for all PPTP sessions up until the start of the update at 6:15am. Nothing since then.
