Subject: Broadcast message from systemd-journald

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi everyone!

 

I installed citadel-suite using apt-get on Ubuntu 15.10.  I then uninstalled it using 'apt-get remove citadel-suite', manually deleted the directory '/etc/citadel/', and then re-installed it again using apt-get.  I thought it would re-run the easy install, but alas no.  After reading the FAQs and the Citadel docs, I ran Citadel's 'setup' executable.  Now it's totally borked.  It's spitting out messages like the following as fast as it can go:

 

Broadcast message from systemd-journald@hostname (Thu 2016-07-14 21:09:52 PDT):

citserver[12510]: failed to create directory /etc/citadel/messages/: No such file or directory

Broadcast message from systemd-journald@hostname (Thu 2016-07-14 21:09:52 PDT):

Broadcast message from systemd-journald@hostname (Thu 2016-07-14 21:09:52 PDT):

I just rebooted the server, but it's still spitting out the same messages from systemd-journald.  Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it and get Citadel re-installed?

It sounds like you've got several copies of Citadel on the system, maybe even running simultaneously. You definitely can't mix the Ubuntu packages with the Easy Install; they go into two different directory hierarchies.

If it's a new system, remove the packages, remove all the Citadel stuff under /usr/local, make sure nothing's running, and start again.

Subject: Citadel not sending encrypted emails (Gmail says)

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi there,
I'm trying to set up a mailserver on my new Ubuntu 14.04 VPS. I've chosen Citadel. The purpose is to have Citadel both handle incoming and outgoing emails. I've kind of achieved what I needed, but the problem I'm facing now is that Gmail tells emails sent from the VPS are unencrypted, and displays a red open padlock.

I'm quite new to setting this up so feel free to ask any questions, since I don't really know what details to provide. I will say that even though all Citadel ports should be open, the firewall is disabled right now, as to clear any possible issues coming from it.

Hope someone has a clue and can help, huge thanks! :)

*grml*

I wasn't aware that Google is now red-flagging any emails that don't arrive via encrypted SMTP. That sucks. Citadel doesn't send out SMTP connections with TLS encryption in the current version, sorry to say. Since the mighty Google overlords now seem to be shaming everyone for doing that, I suppose we should put it on the short list.

In the mean time, the only way to get outbound encrypted SMTP would be to put another MTA in front of Citadel. You could, for example, install Postfix on your server, and don't make it listen on port 25, just use it as an outbound smart-host.

Good morning.

The above message is appearing in my Aide room, regarding an RSS feed for a room that no longer exists on my system.

Since I'm running version 902, now, there are no longer any netconfigs files for me to update/remove in order to remove this entry.

How do I go about doing so, now, for a room that no longer exists for me to edit?

Editing netconfig files was never the correct way to modify a room's RSS feeds.

In the web interface you edit the room and click the tab to modify the feeds.

Agreed...but since the room was deleted prior to my upgrade to 902 but the cooresponding netconfig file was not deleted, it appears to have been assimilated into the database.

The problem is that, because the room no longer exists, I don't seem to have a way to clean this up, now.

I'm facing the same trouble with easyinstall on Debian 8.5 (Jessie) *and* Ubuntu 16.04 based distributions. While downloading and compiling of the software works, I also have the trouble of (citserver) setup freezing when reaching the 40% mark. As a workaround, I have rebooted and manually configured the server using the setup scripts in /usr/local/citadel and /usr/local/webcit. However, during login the admin password is not recognized although setup reports it is set correctly. Which may be a follow up error to the setup program freezing at first run. To sum it up: easyinstall does not seem work with Debian (8.5) and Ubuntu (16.04) releases right now. Installing Citadel from the Debian / Ubuntu package repositories works, though.

setup freezing at 40% means it tried to connect back to Citadel server after restarting it, but had trouble doing so.

Try this:

cd /usr/local/citadel
./citserver

This starts the server in the foreground, on your terminal. Run it there and see what's keeping it from completing its startup.

Thank you for your reply. I've followed your instructions (see detailed list of steps performed) and it seems like the citserver segfaults. In order to help you guys locate the problem, I've attached strace outputs for both, citserver and setup to this message.

 

In order to replicate the issue and following your instructions above, I did the following (on Linux Mint Xfce edition, version 17.3 x86_64):

1.) download the easyinstall script to disk.

2.) comment out the do_setup function call at the end of the script

3.) run the install script and got a fresh install of Citadel

4.) switch to Citadel server directory: cd /usr/local/citadel

5.) run Citadel server: ./citserver

6.) run setup in a seperate terminal window, enter setup data and get this console output:

Reconfiguring Citadel server

*******************************...............................................

The setup program stops here and does not finish.

 

7.) In the terminal window where citserver is running, the citserver segfaults:

citserver[14315]: chown(/usr/local/citadel/data//cdb.01, CTDLUID, -1) returned 0

citserver[14315]: chmod(/usr/local/citadel/data//cdb.08, 0600) returned 0

Unfortunately your strace only showed citserver going into the background and then dying. But I see in your message that you had a segfault.  Since you seem to know how to strace, is it a good guess that you know how to run gdb as well?  If so, please run citserver in the foreground, in the debugger, and print out a stack trace when it crashes during setup.

If we can nail it down to a specific bug in the code (looks like something related to vcard parsing) I can push a fix to Easy Install pretty quickly.

No problem at all. I'll run it in gdb and send you the information requested. I just need a little more time to set up my environment, probably will provide the information you requested over the weekend. Stay tuned and thank you for your support so far.

Okay, so here's the backtrace I ran in gdb (see attached file). Please let me know if you need mor / detailed output from me.

Tue Jul 05 2016 05:36:53 EDTfrom lodger @ Uncensored Subject: Enabling LDAP Authentication

Hello everyone,

I've set up and configured my Citadel server to do LDAP authentication. Logging in with regular users works pretty fine but somehow, the LDAP account I want to use as Citadel aide (administrator) will not show the Administration menu.

Do you use plain LDAP or an Active Directory variety? Like Microsoft Server or Samba4 running as AD? Because the section below only counts for AD. I wrote that howto, but it was a few years ago.

I have set the CN and SN and GECOS attributes according to this statement in the Citadel documentation:

  • If Full Name of the user is set to Edward Xavier Ample, use that Full Name as System Admnistrator name.
  • If First Name is Edward and Last Name is Ample, use both, as in “Edward Ample”.
  • If and only if you did not set the above fields for any reason, then and only then use User Logon Name, such as example for the System Administrator name!

but still no cigar. Can someone help me sort this out?

You need to run the citadel setup command and provide the Aide username there. Only if you did that will the user become aide.

What is the username you want to use as aide? And does it exist in the LDAP? You can't just make up a username in the ldap/ad scenario, it has to exist.

First world problems and I am partly responsible for fixing them, just wanted to write them down here:

Starting this week, I can no longer access uncensored with the latest version of Opera on OSX 10.10.

Also, Safari (latest verstion for OSX 10.10) does not want to connect for security reasons.

Firefox, also latest version, does connect and works rather fast. Which makes me realise that I connected to the non-ssl site. Gnarf...

Thanks for sending the backtrace.  It looks like a null pointer comparison in the new config system.  I've fixed the issue and uploaded the fixed version to Easy Install.  Please try it again and let us know if it worked!

Ok, it seems that only the SSL part does not work for me in all of my browsers. Opera, Safari and Firefox.

The non-ssl version loads flawlessly. So it is not an HTML issue I need to fix.

Speaking of HTML: Since there is some delay at the university, my final exams are not yet finished and so the html rework has not begun. I expect that I have finally passed all exams by the end of coming august.
