  • Konstantinos Margaritis: Eigen NEON port extended to ARMv8!
    Soon after the VSX port, and as promised I have completed the ARMv8 NEON (a.k.a. Advanced SIMD) port. Basically this extends support to 64-bit doubles and also provides faster alternatives to division as ARMv8 has builtin instructions for division both for 32-bit floats and 64-bit doubles. (...)

  • Steve Kemp: On writing test-cases and testsuites.
    Last night I mostly patched my local copy of less to build and link against the PCRE regular expression library. I've wanted to do that for a while, and reading Raymond Chen's blog post last night made me try it out. The patch was small and pretty neat, and I'm familiar with GNU (...)

  • Russ Allbery: Another haul post
    I know I've been very quiet here lately. That's due to a variety of reasons, but mostly because settling in to a new job is taking nearly all of my attention and time. When that's combined with getting obsessed with watching the League of Legends world championships, it means no (...)

  • Junichi Uekawa: Migrating my diary system to some new server.
    Migrating my diary system to some new server. I took the chance to migrate my system from CVS-based system to Git-based system. It no longer relies on a chain of CVS commit hooks, and now I have a makefile to publish. I also took the chance to rewrite my 15 year old elisp so that I can use (...)

  • Michal Čihař: Hosted Weblate has new UI
    The biggest part of this HackWeek will be spent on Weblate. The major task is to complete new UI for it. There have been already some blog posts about that here, so regular readers of my blog already know it is using Twitter Bootstrap. Today it has reached point where I think it's good (...)

  • Michal Čihař: Enca 1.16
    As a first tiny project in this HackWeek, Enca 1.16 has been just released. It mostly brings small code cleanups and missing aliases for languages, but fixes also some minor bugs found by Coverity Scan. If you don't know Enca, it is an Extremely Naive Charset Analyser. It detects character (...)

  • Francois Marier: LXC setup on Debian jessie
    Here's how to setup LXC-based "chroots" on Debian jessie. While this is documented on the Debian wiki, I had to tweak a few things to get the networking to work on my machine. Start by installing (as root) the necessary packages: apt-get install lxc libvirt-bin debootstrap Network setup I (...)

  • Neil Williams: OpenTAC – an automation lab in a box
    I've previously covered running LAVA on ARM devices, now that the packages are in Debian. I've also covered setting up the home lab, including the difficulty in obtaining the PDU and relying on another machine to provide USB serial converters with inherent problems of needing power to keep the (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: littler 0.2.1
    A new maintenance release of littler is available now. The main change are a few updates and extensions to the examples provided along with littler. Several of those continue to make use of the wonderful docopt package by Edwin de Jonge. Carl Boettiger and I are making good use of these (...)

  • Thorsten Alteholz: Key transition, move to stronger key
    Finally I was able to do the enormous paperwork (no, it is not that much) to switch my old 1024D key to a new 4096R one. I was a bit afraid that there might be something bad happening, but my fear was without any reason. After the RT bug was closed, I could upload and sent signed emails to (...)

  • Benjamin Mako Hill: Another Round of Community Data Science Workshops in Seattle
    Pictures from the CDSW sessions in Spring 2014 I am helping coordinate three and a half day-long workshops in November for anyone interested in learning how to use programming and data science tools to ask and answer questions about online communities like Wikipedia, free and open source (...)

  • Steve Kemp: On the names we use in email
    Yesterday I received a small rush of SPAM mails, all of which were 419 scams, and all of them sent by "Mrs Elizabeth PETERSEN". It struck me that I can't think of ever receiving a legitimate mail from a "Mrs XXX [YYY]", but I was too busy to check. Today I've done so. Of the 38,553 (...)

  • Erich Schubert: Beware of trolls - do not feed
    A particularly annoying troll has been on his hate crusade against systemd for months now. Unfortunately, he's particularly active on Debian mailing lists (but apparently also on Ubuntu and the Linux Kernel mailing list) and uses a tons of fake users he keeps on setting up. Our listmasters (...)

  • Rhonda D'Vine: Trans Gender Moves
    Yesterday I managed to get the last ticket from the waitinglist for the premiere of Trans Gender Moves. It is a play about the lives of three people: A transman, a transwoman and an intersexual person. They tell stories from their life, their process of finding their own identity over time. (...)

  • Bits from Debian: Help empower the Debian Outreach Program for Women
    Debian is thrilled to participate in the 9th round of the GNOME FOSS Outreach Program. While OPW is similar to Google Summer of Code it has a winter session in addition to a summer session and is open to non-students. Back at DebConf 14 several of us decided to volunteer because we want to (...)

  • Julian Andres Klode: Key transition
    I started transitioning from 1024D to 4096R. The new key is available at: https://people.debian.org/~jak/pubkey.gpg and the keys.gnupg.net key server. A very short transition statement is available at: https://people.debian.org/~jak/transition-statement.txt and included below (the http (...)

  • Joachim Breitner: Switching to systemd-networkd
    Ever since I read about systemd-networkd being in the making I was looking forward to try it out. I kept watching for the package to appear in Debian, or at least ITP bugs. A few days ago, by accident, I noticed that I already have systemd-networkd on my machine: It is simply shipped with the (...)

  • Joachim Breitner: Switching to sytemd-networkd
    Ever since I read about sytemd-networkd being in the making I was looking forward to try it out. I kept watching for the package to appear in Debian, or at least ITP bugs. A few days ago, by accident, I noticed that I already have systemd-networkd on my machine: It is simply shipped with the (...)

  • Gunnar Wolf: When Open Access meets the Napster anniversary
  • Marco d'Itri: The Italian peering ecosystem
    I published the slides of my talk "An introduction to peering in Italy - Interconnections among the Italian networks" that I presented today at the MIX-IT (the Milano internet exchange) technical meeting.

  • Philipp Kern: pbuilder and pam_tmpdir
    It turns out that my recent woes with pbuilder were all due to libpam-tmpdir being installed (at least two old bug reports exist about this issue: #576425 and #725434). I rather like my private temporary directory that cannot be accessed by other (potential) users on the same system. Previously (...)

  • Konstantinos Margaritis: SIMD optimizations, cont.
    A friend of mine told me that I should advertise my passion and know-how about SIMD more, and I decided to follow his advice. Though I am terrible at marketing and even more at personal marketing, I've made an attempt to do just that, advertise the fact that I'm offering SIMD (...)

  • John Goerzen: Update on the systemd issue
    The other day, I wrote about my poor first impressions of systemd in jessie. Here's an update. I'd like to start with the things that are good. I found the systemd community to be one of the most helpful in Debian, and #debian-systemd IRC channel to be especially helpful. I was in there for (...)

  • Steve McIntyre: Successful Summer of Code in Linaro
    It's past time I wrote about how Linaro's students fared in this year's Google Summer of Code. You might remember me posting earlier in the year when we welcomed our students. We started with 3 student projects at the beginning of the summer. One of the students unfortunately (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: Seinfeld streak at GitHub
    Early last year, I referred to a Seinfeld Streak in a blog post referring to almost two months of updates to the Rcpp Gallery. This is sometimes called Jerry Seinfeld's secret to productivity: Just keep at it. Don't break the streak. I now have different streak: Now we'll see how (...)

  • Jonathan Wiltshire: Clean builds for the win
    I've just spent a little time squashing several bugs on the trot, all the same: insufficient build-dependencies when built in a clean environment. Typically this means that the package was uploaded after being built on a developer's normal machine, which already has everything required (...)

  • Steinar H. Gunderson: Short SSH keys
    I'm sure this is useful for something beyond being neat: klump:~> cat .ssh/id_ed25519.pub ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIFePWUlZmVbCZ9KHa4pOOMBXHaMFeuuIZDw0uHHEY2/m sesse@klump I hope OpenSSH doesn't eventually grow a sort-of single point of failure in “djb ALL the (...)

  • Iustin Pop: Day trip on the Olympic Peninsula
    Day trip on the Olympic Peninsula TL;DR: drove many kilometres on very nice roads, took lots of pictures, saw sunshine and fog and clouds, an angry ocean and a calm one, a quiet lake and lots and lots of trees: a very well spent day. Pictures at (...)

  • Giuseppe Iuculano: apt-get purge chromium
  • Mario Lang: soundCLI works again
    I recently ranted about my frustration with GStreamer in a SoundCloud command-line client written in Ruby. Well, it turns out that there was quite a bit confusion going on. I still haven't figured out why my initial tries resulted in an error regarding $DISPLAY not being set. But now that (...)

  • Guido G?nther: Testing a NetworkManager VPN plugin password dialog
    Testing the password dialog of a NetworkManager VPN plugin is as simple as: echo -e 'DATA_KEY=foo\nDATA_VAL=bar\nDONE\nQUIT\n' | ./auth-dialog/nm-iodine-auth-dialog -n test -u $(uuid) -i The above is for the iodine plugin when run from the built source tree. This allows one to test (...)

  • John Goerzen: First impressions of systemd, and they're not good
    Well, I finally bit the bullet. My laptop, which runs jessie, got dist-upgraded for the first time in a few months. My brightness keys stopped working, and it no longer would suspend to RAM when the lid was closed, and upon chasing things down from XFCE to policykit, eventually it appears that (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RPushbullet 0.1.0 with a lot more awesome
    A new release 0.1.0 of the RPushbullet package (interfacing the neat Pushbullet service) landed on CRAN today. It brings a number of goodies relative to the first release 0.0.2 of a few months ago: pushing of files is now supported thanks to a nice pull request bu Mike Birdgeneau a default (...)

vendredi 10 octobre 2014

  • Matthias Klumpp: Listaller + Glick: Some new ideas
  • Mario Lang
    GStreamer and the command-line? I was recently looking for a command-line client for SoundCloud. soundCLI on GitHub appeared to be what I want. But wait, there is a problem with its implementation. soundCLI uses gstreamer's playbin2 to play audio data. But that apparently requires (...)

  • Martin Pitt: Running autopkgtests in the cloud
    It's great to see more and more packages in Debian and Ubuntu getting an autopkgtest. We now have some 660, and soon we'll get another ~ 4000 from Perl and Ruby packages. Both Debian's and Ubuntu's autopkgtest runner machines are currently static manually maintained machines which ache under (...)
