Fix problem updating packages in Fedora/Korora due to broken SELinux update

Unfortunately an update to the SELinux policy package in Fedora 20 (and therefore Korora 20) caused RPM scriptlets to fail when updating packages.

This bug only affects systems that have SELinux mode set to enforcing (which is the default) and were updated to version 3.12.1-116 of the selinux-policy package. If you have seen the following sort of error when updating packages, then this bug may affect you:

warning: %post(libkcompactdisc-4.12.1-1.fc20.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 127
Non-fatal POSTIN scriptlet failure in rpm package libkcompactdisc-4.12.1-1.fc20.x86_64

Below are the commands to resolve this issue (which has been fixed in an updated 3.12.1-117 version of selinux-policy).

sudo setenforce 0
sudo yum clean expire-cache
sudo yum update selinux-policy\*
sudo setenforce 1

The first command disables SELinux enforcement for the current session and the subsequent commands expire the yum cache and install the SELinux policy update which fixes this issue. The last command re-enables SELinux enforcement.

If you previously installed any packages which failed with scriptlet errors like above, you can reinstall them using the following command:

sudo yum reinstall

You can find out what packages were installed after the broken update using a command like this:

sudo sed '1,/selinux-policy-3.12.1-116/d' /var/log/yum.log

Korora 20 (Peach) released

Today we released the final images for Korora Project (Fedora1 Remix) version 20 with Cinnamon, GNOME, KDE, MATE and Xfce desktops (in 32 and 64 bit).

The release was a little delayed because we were waiting for a few bug fixes to land, as well as Christmas and New Year holidays which got in the way.

We have also been hard at work building our new open source web platform which includes a replacement for our forums which is called Engage. Anyone who had an account with our old forums can log in to the new site, you will just get an email to activate your account first. Bug reports welcome!

Korora 19.1 released

Yesterday we released Korora 19.1 which is a 3 month update to the original 19 release. Anyone already running Korora doesn’t need this, however if you are planning do any more installs we highly recommend downloading this new release as it includes all updates, a few tweaks and fixes a number of bugs. This release also includes versions of the MATE and Cinnamon desktops which we’ve created to gauge community interest.

The 19.1 release features:

  • All updates at time of release, including; KDE 4.11, kernel 3.11.2 and Firefox 24
  • Introduces support for MATE and Cinnamon desktops
  • Replaces rawtherapee raw image editor with darktable
  • Includes lzma compression, fonts-tweak-tool and gnome-documents
  • Fixes a systemd bug where the installer sometimes won’t start

MATE is a fork of GNOME 2, so if you’re pining for the old days and GNOME 3 isn’t your cup of tea, this may be for you.

Cinnamon is a fork of GNOME Shell and implements a more traditional layout with modern technology on top of GNOME 3.

Thank you to our community members who have helped to make this release possible.

Enjoy!

ZDNet on Korora 19, “If you make the effort to try it, you are likely to love it.”

After reviewing Fedora 19, J.A. Watson does a hands on with Korora 19.

Once installed, Korora has worked flawlessly for me. Every system, every bit of hardware, every driver — they have all worked straight out of the box. If you’re not into reading release announcements and such to find out what the differences [between Fedora and Korora] are, just install it and then browse around in the menus a bit. It includes a truly impressive array of pre-installed software, in every category. If you make the effort to try it, you are likely to love it.

Korora 19 (Bruce) released

Well, the cat’s out of the bag! Korora 19 (Bruce) is now available for download, which for the first time ever coincides with the same release of Fedora :-)

See the official Korora Release announcement for more details.

Korora 18 (Flo) beta released

NOTE: Kororaa Linux has changed to the Korora Project and moved to a new website at http://kororaproject.org.

The Korora Project is pleased to announce the first beta release of version 18 (codename “Flo”) which is now available for download.

Features
Derived from Fedora 181 stable, this release comes with the usual Korora extras out of the box, but now also includes:

  • Adobe Flash plugin
  • Experimental support for Valve’s Steam client
  • unburden-home-dir, which moves cache files (like in Firefox profiles) onto RAMFS at login
  • undistract-me, which pops up a GUI notification when a terminal command has completed

Upgrade
It is now possible to upgrade from Kororaa 17 to Korora 18, thanks to Fedora’s FedUp tool.

Feedback
This is a beta and we’d love to hear about your experience so that we can make it better! Please send us feedback in the forums or log a bug report if you have any issues. Of course you can find us on social media like Identi.ca, Twitter, Google+ and Facebook.
