    This will probably be fixed in the next releasse. That should happen if on your system "which" is not installed.

    Don't worry about that (TM), just a malformed line in the blocklist which was detected by pgl.

    Doesn't matter, that's just to send statistics and error reports. If you don't have a MTA installed you can disable all this reporting by setting in /etc/pgl/pglcmd.conf

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    So, that's for me catching up with all unanswered posts. If there are questions open, please ask again.

    The current main problem seems to be the non-working binaries from oneiric/precise, which cause pgld to crash on every reload (which happens e.g. after the automatic daily blocklist update). The pglcmd.wd fixes this after maximum 5 minutes. Check the mails that are sent to root (unless you configured something else), if you want to know if you are hit by this bug, you will see mails with a subject "pglcmd.wd restarted pgld" next to the daily "Results of pglcmd blocklist update".
    I have (at least a little) hope that the new build system (already in the git repository at sourceforge) fixes this, if not use the natty packages.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    stopped pgld
    removed spamhaus drop list.
    update lists
    restart

    it seems blocking the entire Internet stopped the update process. updating with shields down worked.

    all is well again.

    Just to clarify ..

    Should I just use Natty version on 11.10 (Oneiric) or 12.04 LTS (Precise)?

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    I have no reports for 12.04 (Precise), yet. So probably try the precise packages first and check the first few days the /var/log/pgl/pglcmd.log and your local mail to root for entries from the watchdog (pglcmd.wd). If there aren't any you are fine, but if you see something you should try the natty version.

    For 11.10 (Oneiric) you should use the natty version. But verifying it works (like above) would be good anyway.

    I hope the issue is fixed in the upcoming 2.1.4. There are some changes which might be related.

    I thought I'd already posted that it was the same on Precise as on Oneiric, it still turns itself off. I'm still using the Natty version without problem.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    You are right, i forgot that over my holidays

    So allOneiric and Precise users should use the natty sources.list entry until the next update (2.2.0)

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    @all: I uploaded a preview of the upcoming release last weekend. It should/may fix all known issues, hopefully also the issues with oneiric/precise. Please note that there is no release for natty yet.

    @masuch: I'm not familiar with tor in detail. But I doubt that there is an module for iptables. Perhaps there is a port that you could whitelist. Instead I guess you should use this list as an allow list in pgl (ask if you don't know how to configure that).
