Trusting additional CAs in Fedora / RHEL / CentOS: an alternative to editing /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt (or /etc/pki/tls/cert.pem)

Around the internet, you can find various pages advising appending CA certificates to /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt or /etc/pki/tls/cert.pem (they’re the same file, one’s a symlink to the other) as a good way to trust them. This may be necessary, but it has drawbacks (the main one being that once you’ve edited the file, it will no longer […]

A note about SSL/TLS trusted certificate stores, and platforms (OpenSSL and GnuTLS)

Pop quiz: where is OpenSSL’s default store of trusted CA certificate files? /etc/ssl/certs /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.trust.crt /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem /System/Library/OpenSSL Some other goddamn place If your answer was 8. It’s a trick question, well done, take this gold star for knowledge and/or test-taking skills. Depending on the platform you’re on, any of the above could exist, and […]

Fedora 22 (and later) nightly testing

Right around the release of Fedora 21, I talked to the anaconda team a bit about the idea of doing more organized early validation testing for Fedora 22. We later discussed and approved the idea at a QA meeting, and since then I’ve been working on the bits to make it all run smoothly. We […]

wikitcms and ownCloud stuff

For my salary this week I mostly worked on relval/wikitcms – I shipped 1.7 yesterday which is a major rewrite, on top of recent updates which added support for nightly build testing. relval nightly can create the validation pages for nightly composes, relval report-results can report results in them, and relval testcase-stats and relval user-stats […]

Fedora 21 greatest hits: non-Server non-live installs, fedup product behaviour

Downtime today: upgrade day

Just a heads-up there’ll probably be downtime on this site (and other happyassassin servers, though that mostly matters only to me :>) today – it’s upgrade day! Everything’s going to F21 (except my desktop, which is going to F22). If you hear explosions from Canada, you’ll know why.
