  • Thorsten Alteholz: USB 3.0 hub and Gigabit LAN adapter
    Recently I bought an USB 3.0 Hub with three USB 3.0 ports and one Gigabit LAN port. It is manufactured by Delock and I purchased it from Reichelt (Delock 62440). Under Wheezy the USB part is recognized without problems but the kernel (3.2.0-4) does not have a driver for the ethernet part. The (...)

  • Sjoerd Simons: Debian Jessie on Raspberry Pi 2
    Apart from being somewhat slow, one of the downsides of the original Raspberry Pi SoC was that it had an old ARM11 core which implements the ARMv6 architecture. This was particularly unfortunate as most common distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc) standardized on the ARMv7-A architecture (...)

  • Steinar H. Gunderson: Multicast tunnel tuning
    New things learned over the weekend: A Cisco 871 is seemingly too old to handle 15 Mbit/sec of multicast-IPv4-over-GRE-over-IPv6 (even though the same over IPv4 seemingly went fine a while back). Cisco 2901 will inevitably flush its entire input queue (dropping up to a hundred packets or so) (...)

  • Iustin Pop: Morning snow
    Woke up on Sunday morning to see… snow! It snowed during the night, such that there were around 5 or 6 centimetres of snow on the ground. The second surprise was that, from my window at least, it seemed the snow on the street and sidewalks was still there! To see snow, uncleaned, after (...)

  • Andrea Veri: The GNOME Infrastructure Apprentice Program
    Many times it happened seeing someone joining the #sysadmin IRC channel requesting participation to the team after having spent around 5 minutes trying to explain what the skills and the knowledge were and why this person felt it was the right figure for the position. And it was always very (...)

  • Russell Coker: SE Linux Play Machine Over Tor
    I work on SE Linux to improve security for all computer users. I think that my work has gone reasonably well in that regard in terms of directly improving security of computers and helping developers find and fix certain types of security flaws in apps. But a large part of the security problems (...)

  • Laura Arjona: Upgrading my computers to Debian Jessie: Husband's laptop (Acer Aspire 5250)
    This is an old laptop, with AMD E-300 processor, 6 GB RAM, Radeon HD 6310 VGA and Atheros AR9485 wireless network adapter. It was running Windows 7 (preinstalled). The hard disk failed, and I put the hard disk of another laptop (a broken Acer Aspire One D255) on it. Surprisingly, the Windows 7 (...)
