  • Richard Hartmann: Tabletop games
    Wood. I really like wood. Even more, I like working with wood. Touching it, following its grain, and contemplating that it was made mostly from thin air and water. Normally, I just turn trees into handy pieces of firewood. While that's already deeply satisfying in the sense that you (...)

  • Sven Hoexter: Out of the comfort zone: Backporting net-snmp from CentOS 7 to CentOS 5 and 6
    Lately I faced the requirement to create a backport of net-snmp 5.7.2, which is part of CentOS 7, to a largely CentOS 5 and 6 based infrastructure. Due to some prior adventures in the rpm world I already knew about Mock (the Fedora equivalent to pbuilder). The easy part was the backporting to (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/2
    after the GR is before the GR. the next one is about limiting the term of TC members. & it's a pleasure for me to watch how the proponents of different variants & other interested people work together most constructively in order to prepare the best possible ballot for the voters. (...)

  • Steve Kemp: Paying attention to webserver logs
    If you run a webserver chances are high that you'll get hit by random exploit-attempts. Today one of my servers has this logged - an obvious shellshock exploit attempt: 92.242.4.130 blog.steve.org.uk - [02/Dec/2014:11:50:03 +0000] \ "GET /cgi-bin/dbs.cgi HTTP/1.1" 404 2325 \ "-" "() :;; (...)

    A new major release of RQuantLib is now on CRAN and getting to Debian. All C++ source files have been rewritten to take advantage of newer Rcpp features.

  • Matthias Klumpp: How to build a cross-distro package with Limba
    Disclaimer: Limba is still in a very early stage of development. Bugs happen, and I give to guarantees on API stability yet. Limba is a very simple cross-distro package installer, utilizing OverlayFS found in recent Linux kernels (>= 3.18). As example I created a small Limba package for one (...)

  • DebConf team: Sponsors for DebConf15 (Posted by Laura Arjona Reina)
    The Debian project recently welcomed the first nine sponsors for Debconf15: credativ and sipgate as Gold sponsors, Google, Farsight Security, Inc., Martin Alfke / Buero 2.0 and Ubuntu as silver sponsors, and Logilab, Netways and Hetzner as Bronze-level. But things have kept moving! The Matanel (...)

  • Peter Eisentraut: ccache and clang, part 3
    In part 1 and part 2 I investigated how to use ccache with clang. That was more than three years ago. I got an email the other day that ccache bug 8118, which I filed while writing part 1, was closed, as ccache 3.2 was released. The release notes of clang 3.2 contain several items related to (...)

  • Martin-?ric Racine: GNOME is destroying the whole GTK universe
    When GNOME 3.14 components were uploaded into Debian (just a few days before the Jessie freeze started), GNOME stopped working on two video platforms: Geode (xf86-video-geode) and NVIDIA (xf86-video-nouveau). On Geode, GDM launches into a black screen. On NVIDIA, GDM launches as expected, but (...)

  • Iustin Pop: SSD adventures
    SSD adventures and fun times! TL;DR: Oh boy. Things work now, but I'm not sure exactly what happened When it all worked fine… almost In June, I bought a new laptop, and a new SSD for it. I used that model of SSD before (Samsung 840 Evo), although not for a long time, so I wasn't (...)

  • Joey Hess: snowdrift - sustainable crowdfunding for free software development
    In a recent blog post, I mentioned how lucky I feel to keep finding ways to work on free software. In the past couple years, I've had a successful Kickstarter, and followed that up with a second crowdfunding campaign, and now a grant is funding my work. A lot to be thankful for. A one-off (...)

  • Diego Escalante Urrelo: Airport hack: Where to eat
    When in an airport, and not sure where to eat, look for the place where you can find the most airport workers. They did the research for you already.

  • Olivier Berger: Offline backup/mirror of a Moodle course, using httrack
    I havent' found much details online on how to perform a Moodle course mirror that could be browsed offline using httrack. This could be useful both for backup purposes, or for distant learners with connectivity issues. In my case, there's a login/password dialog that grants access to the (...)

  • Ian Wienand: rstdiary
    I find it very useful to spend 5 minutes a day to keep a small log of what was worked on, major bugs or reviews and a general small status report. It makes rolling up into a bigger status report easier when required, or handy as a reference before you go into meetings etc. I was happily using (...)
