Installing Kontact on CentOS7   June 29th, 2017

If you search for “install kontact centos7”, you find the first link: https://www.kolabsys.com/installation-guide/kontact-centos.html

Unfortunately, that does not work. Even if you add the Kolab 16 repository (wget https://obs.kolabsys.com/repositories/Kolab:/16/CentOS_7/Kolab:16.repo) so that libkolab etc can be installed, you still have conflicts because kdepim-libs is installed from the base repository.

It seems, that the packages on OBS are targetted mainly for Ubuntu: https://obs.kolabsys.com/project/monitor/Kontact:4.13

Then I looked if Kontact is available in Epel, but it is only available for Fedora: https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/kontact

Then I found the copr of Rex Dieter, which provides uptodate packages for Kontact and is maintained by the Fedora KDE-SIG: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/rdieter/kde4/

So to install Kontact on CentOS7, you need to do this:

cd /etc/yum/repos.d
wget https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/rdieter/kde4/repo/epel-7/rdieter-kde4-epel-7.repo
yum install kontact

KontoCheck ist eine Bibliothek zum Test deutscher Bankkonten, kann aber auch zum Umrechnen der Kontonummern und BLZ in IBAN und BIC benutzt werden.

Es gab ein neues Update der Bankdatei, deren Inhalt jetzt für den Zeitraum 06. März 2017 bis 03. September 2017 gilt. In unserer Bankdatei sind immer die zwei neuesten Bankdaten von der Bundesbank enthalten. Quelle: Deutsche Bundesbank, BLZ Download.

Entsprechend habe ich die Debian und CentOS Pakete aktualisiert:

http://software.opensuse.org/download/package?project=home:tpokorra:kontocheck&package=kontocheck

Auch der Online Dienst https://kontocheck.solidcharity.com/ wurde auf die neue Version aktualisiert. Hier können sowohl manuell Umwandlungen von Kontonummer/BLZ auf IBAN/BIC durchgeführt werden, als auch über einen WebService Abfragen gestellt werden, die mit XML beantwortet werden.

I had problems installing nuget packages on CentOS 7 with the mono packages from my copr at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/tpokorra/mono/

I got this error when running nuget restore:

WARNUNG: Error: TrustFailure (Ssl error:1000007d:SSL routines:OPENSSL_internal:CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED)

The solution is to run once this command (see also http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/releases/3.12.0/#cert-sync):

sudo cert-sync /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

This command is run by default when you install the mono package provided by Xamarin, see https://github.com/mono/linux-packaging-mono/blob/centos/mono-core.spec#L393

I did not report on Updates for Kolab 16 while some courageous people (dhoffend, airhardt/sicherha, hede, kanarip, and probably more) were making Kolab 16 ready for Debian. This seems to have been accomplished.

Also in the past weeks, Kolab 16.1 has been released on December 15th 2016. See the announcement here: https://kolabsystems.com/news/kolab-161-out-now-0

Yesterday, a couple of packages have been updated and rebuilt. Looking at the changes, it only affects Kolab on Debian.

There is documentation about how to import Contacts into the Roundcube address books from CSV files: https://docs.roundcube.net/doc/help/1.1/en_US/addressbook/importexport.html

Unfortunately, that documentation does not come with a description of the columns supported.

I recently read about https://dply.co and wanted to give it a go.

The idea is that you can use a machine for free for 2 hours, and you can extend it by paying for additional time. You can use a script provided by someone else that configures the machine. This can be ideal for a quick test of Kolab, if you cannot fire up a virtual machine yourself at the moment.
