this is something we're shipping just because (i.e: it's unused at the
moment), there's not integration with swupd or anything else that might
make it usable from bundles perspective, so let's just drop it for now

Hi Clr-dev Team,
As Clear Linux kernel is close to latest and greatest mainline kernel version
does Clear Linux kernel supply support for hardware Perfmon features available
on newest e.g. Intel CPUs so that the features accessible, for examples, via
Linux Perf or other Perf based tools?
Any response is appreciated.
So Rob helped me out a few days back getting up running in AWS HK. Turns
out I also need to deploy servers on Alicloud/Aliyun in HK.
Going through the Instance Wizard on Aliyun.com it shows a single CL
Marketplace image version offered, which happens to be 20370. My
understanding is this is quite far behind current.
Would it be OK to install this version and then do an in-place OS
upgrade? Or, perhaps an alternative course of action is preferable.
On April 8th 2020 we received reports from users about Clear Linux OS
installations failing to reboot after updating to 32780. This Clear Linux
version included an update to Linux kernel 5.6 which introduced a
configuration `CONFIG_EFI_DISABLE_PCI_DMA` that does not work consistently
with many EFI implementations. Impacted systems do not boot successfully,
getting stuck at the error messages "exit_boot() failed! efi_main()
failed!". This does not appear to impact all systems. To prevent this issue
from impacting more systems, we are pushing an update to revert the
**If you have a system which is experiencing this issue:**
A previous version of the kernel is still available on your system to boot
from and can be used to work around the problem.
1. Reboot the system.
2. Interrupt the bootloader by holding the `SPACE` bar key on the keyboard
after the system POSTS.
3. From the bootloader screen, select a kernel 5.5.x or older using the
arrow keys and hit the `ENTER` key on the keyboard.
**If for any reason a previous kernel is not available for selection:**
1. Highlight the 5.6.x kernel from the bootloader screen.
2. Push `e` on the keyboard to edit the kernel cmdline.
3. Use the right arrow key on the keyboard to reach the end of the line.
4. Add `efi=no_disable_early_pci_dma` and hit the `ENTER` key on the
keyboard to boot with the modified kernel cmdline.
**If you have a running system which has not yet rebooted:**
1. Defer rebooting if possible.
2. Manually run `swupd update` and make sure it updates to 32800 or newer

Clear Linux is keeping me both busy and confused. I have installed the
"dovecot" and "postfix" bundles, but wonder about the configuration. It
may be down to the idea of statelessness again, but where are the config
files? Both Dovecot and Postfix require configuration beyond what could
be defined at compile-time on some Clear Linux build host who knows
nothing of my infrastructure, so I suspect the files to be hiding
somewhere? Both packages include extensive example config files in
their original release tarballs.
On launch, Dovecot complains about a missing /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.
Sure enough, the whole folder is missing. Postfix is grumpy because
/etc/postfix does not exist either, so there's no main.cf, master.cf,
postfix-files etc., causing Postfix's integrity check to fail. Note that
I did not specify these particular locations, they are compiled in.
I have since created the necessary files manually, either based on other
servers of mine or by extracting defaults from the source tarballs.
That's probably not how it should be done, but what is the correct
method for Clear Linux?
Also, I get the following authentication error from Dovecot:
auth: Fatal: Support not compiled in for passdb driver 'ldap'
While I can run "swupd bundle-add openldap", how do I change compile
time (!) options for Dovecot? On Gentoo Linux, I'd add "USE=ldap" to the
build. With MacPorts, I'd use the "+ldap" variant. However, I don't see
a Clear Linux package for an LDAP-enabled Dovecot server, and my search
for documentation has so far failed to return more than "yes, these
All pointers are welcome.
Hi, I am currently developing a video analytics project that uses RTSP protocol as a communication method. I am using the protocol to retrieve ip camera feeds over the network. I am also using OpenVINO as my video analytics toolkit.
Before using clearlinux, I have tested my setup on Ubuntu 18.04 Xenial Beaver using either of the following two methods, both of them work just fine:
1. accessing video stream using a precompiled VLC
2. using a python script with OpenCV VideoCapture function.
Based on public reviews, clearlinux OS works faster that other Linux variants. I wanted to try to develop my same project in Ubuntu and transfer to ClearLinux. I have tried the two methods using VLC and python scripts without changing any of my codes, but it didnt work.
So I searched in the the clearlinux forum for any solutions. The first solution I found was by compiling and configuring ffmpeg settings that enables H264 encoding videos to play on firefox. https://community.clearlinux.org/t/how-to-h264-etc-support-for-firefox-in... . It didnt work with my IP camera streaming, but it did work in playing local video files encoded in H264 format.
Next, I edited my code & tried using streaming via ffplay and also precompiled gstreamer method. Both of them still can't access the IP camera feeds on the network.
In one of my posts I got a reply from the forum saying clearlinux have their own packaging and guidelines and some things are not possible due to license copyright and other reasons. I do realize that H264 is a proprietary format but I do believe the issue is not related to the H264 codec itself, but possibly the RTSP protocol or some other issues in the OS. I do not know how to remedy this issue, and would like to ask for assistance on how to find resolution.
