كانونيكال تتخلى عن يونتي ٨ و أوبنتو فون

ubuntu-13.10.png

في قرار فجائي، ولكن متوقع، أعلنت شركة كانونيكال عن تخليها عن عدة مشاريع لا تدر عليها المال، وأهم هذه المشاريع يونتي ٨ و Mir و أوبنتو للهواتف و الأجهزة اللوحية. هذه الخطوة جاءت كمراجعة لسياسة الشركة التي تصارع من أجل جلب إيرادات أكبر لعدة سنوات بالرغم من الشهرة الكبيرة التي تحظى بها في سوق المستخدمين النهائيين.

وكتوجه لهذا المسار، فإن الشركة ستستثمر في سوق السحاب وانترنت الأشياء، وهما المجالان اللذان يجلبان أرباح أكبر وعليها إقبال أكبر من الزبائن المستعدين للدفع. وكنتيجة أيضا لهذا التوجه، فإن الإصدارة القادمة من أوبنتو ١٨.٠٤ طويلة الدعم ستأتي بسطح مكتب جنوم بشكل افتراضي مثلما كان هو الحال قبل أن تبدأ كانونيكال في تطوير سطح مكتب يونتي.

من وجهة نظري الشخصية فإن شركة كانونيكال أدركت أخيرا الشيء الذي أدركته شركة ردهات وهو أن الاستثمار في سوق المستخدمين النهائيين ليس مجدي وأن الأفضل أن تستثمر في مجالات لا يوجد فيها منافسين كبار. من ناحية أخرى فإن كانونيكال إذا توجهت إلى التخلي عن سطح المكتب بشكل كامل فإنها ستخسر نقطة جذب مهمة لها وهي المستخدمين العاديين الذين يمثلون قاعدة كبيرة للاستثمار في مجال لا تتعلق بسطح المكتب من مثل إنترنت الأشياء. ما رأيك أنت؟ شارك بتعليقك.

شركة ديل باعت أجهزة محمولة بنظام لينكس بأكثر من عشرات الملايين الدولارات

dellubuntu1204.png

في أحد المقابلات المرئية قال  Barton George أحد مهندسي  شركة DELL ، أن  الشركة باعت أجهزة محمولة بقيمة عشرات الملايين دولارات محمل فيها نظام أوبنتو بشكل افتراضي.
ثم استطرد المهندس بالقول أن الاستثمار المبدئي كان فقط ٤٠ ألف دولار وخلال أربع سنوات وصلت المبيعات عشرات الملايين الدولارات.
وعندما سئل لماذا لا تثبتوا ردهات أو أوبن سوز  بشكل افتراضي؟ قال أن  الشركة  لا تريد أن  تشتت جهودها،  وأن  عملهم  في تعريفات الأجهزة سيرسل إلى  المنبع وبالتالي سيصل لتلك التوزيعات في النهاية.
لقد نمت مبيعات أجهزة ديل المخصصة للمطورين من جهاز واحد لتصبح الآن خط إنتاج يحمل الكثير من التنوعات تناسب معظم حاجيات المطورين.

صدور لينكس منت ١٨

linuxmintlogo.png

وأخيرا أطلق مطوروا توزيعة لينكس منت الشهيرة الإصدارة لينكس منت ١٨ ، هذه الإصدارة ذات دعم طويل والتى ستظل مدعومة حتى ٢٠٢١م، أهم ما في هذه الإصدارة هي توحيد التطبيقات بين واجهات منت المعتمدة على مكتبة GTK+ ,وهي واجهة MATE  و Cinnamon.


أطلق على هذه التطبيقات X-Apps وهدفها الرئيسي هو استبدال تطبيقات جنوم التي لا تعمل إلا على منصة جنوم ٣  بتطبيقات تعمل على جميع أسطح مكتب GTK ويستفيد منها الجميع.
أهم مميزات هذه X-Apps :
١- تعتمد على مكتبات حديثة ومتطورة GTK3 و gsettings
2- تستخدم واجهات مستخدم تقليدية ( القوائم و شريط الأدوات ) خلاف تطبيقات جنوم ٣ الجديدة.
٣- تعمل في كل مكان فهي ليست مرتبطة بسطح مكتب معين أو توزيعة معينة.
تضم هذه التطبيقات حتى الآن : Xed محرر نصوص ، و Xviewer  عارض صور ، و Xreader  قارئ مستندات PDF ، و Xplayer  مشغل ملتميديا، Pix  مدير ومنظم صور.
الجدير بالذكر أه هذه التطبيقات لم تطور من الصفر ، بل اعتمدت على تطبيقات جنوم وبنت عليها ، بالإضافة إلى توفر تطبيقات جنوم الأساسية في المستودعات لم يرغب بها.

صور من تطبيقات X-apps

من الإضافات الجديدة في منت ١٨ هي سمة Mint-Y وهي خليفة سمة Mint-X والتي أطلقت عام ٢٠١٠م فبعد ست سنوات وتغير الكثير في عالم الواجهات قرر فريق التطوير أن يطور السمة ويطلق سمة Mint-Y التي بنيت على السمة الشهيرة Arc وأيقونات Moka، هذه السمة تعطيك منظر عصري ونظيف واحترافي على حد قول مطوري لينكس منت.

          Ø¥Ø·Ù„اق Ubuntu 16.04        
إطلاق Ubuntu 16.04

وأخيرا أعلنت شركة كانونيكال عن إطلاق سادس إصدارة طويلة الدعم من نظامها أوبنتو.جاءت أوبنتو 16.04 بالعديد من المميزات الجديدة والتي تركز في أغلبها نحو تقنيات الخوادم و الحوسبة السحابية وإنترنت الأشياء.


فمن أهم مميزات هذه النسخة هي:
- تقديم صيغة جديدة لتوزيع البرمجيات وهي صيغة snap والتي تتميز بأنها آمنة و قوية.
- تقديم تقنية ZFS لأنظمة الملفات وهي تقنية متطورة جدا لإدارة الملفات واسترجاعها يمكنك التعرف على المزيد حولها في هذه المقالة.
- إضافة LXD كمدير خالص للحاويات لنظام OpenStack Mitaka
- دعم أنظمة  IBM Z and و LinuxONE من شركة أي بي أم.

أما من ناحية سطح المكتب فلم تطرأ الكثير من التحديثات الجذرية ولعل أهم المميزات الجديدة:
- استبعاد مركز برمجيات أوبنتو والاستعاضة عنه بمركز برمجيات جنوم.
- إمكانية نقل شريط يونتي إلى الأسفل.
- تحسين دعم الشاشات عالية الوضوح HiDPI.

من ناحية إصدارات البرمجيات فكالعادة تأتي هذه النسخة بآخر التطبيقات المستقرة وأهمها:
- نواة لينكس ٤.٤
- بايثون ٣.٥
- ليبر أوفيس ٥.١
- تطبيقات بيئة جنوم ٣.١٨

مشتقات أوبنتو ١٦.٤


صدرت كذلك مشتقات أوبنتو الرسمية وهي  Ubuntu MATE وKubuntu وXubuntu وLubuntu والفروقات عادة هي في نوعية سطح المكتب المستخدم بدلا عن سطح مكتب يونتي.

الدعم:

المميز في هذه الإصدارة وكعادة الإصدارات طويلة الدعم هو توفير الدعم الرسمي من شركة كانونيكال لمدة خمس سنوات بشكل مجاني من تاريخ صدور التوزيعة. وهذا يجعل هذه الإصدارة هي التي ينصح بها خلال السنتين القادمتين حتى صدور ١٨.٠٤.

تحميل أوبنتو ١٦.٤

تتوفّر أوبنتو على شكل أكثر من إصدار، واحد لسطح المكتب وآخر للخواديم وآخر للحوسبة السحابية، والأخير للمطورين، يمكنك اختيار الإصدار الذي يناسبك والمعمارية التي تناسب جهازك كذلك عبر زيارة الموقع الرسمي.

أوبونتو ستسقط الدعم الرسمي عن fglrx / Catalyst في الإصدار القادم 16.04

قرّر مطورو توزيعة أوبونتو الشهيرة إسقاط الدعم الرسمي عن التعريف الاحتكاري (مغلق المصدر) لبطاقات الإظهار VGA من نوع AMD والتي تُعرف باسم fglrx / Catalyst. مستخدمو الإصدار القادم من أوبونتو ذو الرقم 16.04 مدعون لاستخدام التعريف الحرّ (radeon و amdgpu).
وتبعًا لملاحظات الإصدار التجريبي من النسخة القادمة تقول أوبونتو بأن مطورو AMD عملوا بجد على تحسين التعريف مفتوح المصدر، وبأنّه مع إصدار النواة 4.5 سيعطي أفضل تجربة ممكنة لبطاقات الإظهار من هذا النوع. وستتسبب ترقية التوزيعة من إصدار سابق إلى حذف كلًا من fglrx وَ xorg.conf واستبدالها بالتعريف الحرّ المناسب.
بالتأكيد لا يزال بإمكان من يرغب باستعمال التعريف مغلق المصدر الحصول عليه من موقع amd.org ومن ثم تثبيته حسب الخطوات المُعتادة أو الحصول عليه من مستودعات خارجية PPA لكن ذلك لن يكون مدعومًا بشكل رسمي من فريق أوبونتو.
ويُعتبر التعريف الحرّ لبطاقات AMD مناسبًا بشكل جيّد لأعمال سطح المكتب بما في ذلك التصميم وبعض الألعاب البسيطة (2D)، لكن تشغيل التسريع الثلاثي وميزات أخرى يتطلب الحصول على التعريف الاحتكاري.

          come mi diverto a smanettare sul pc        
Tra le cose con cui mi tengo occupato il cervello per non pensare a me stesso, una posizione di rilievo la occupa la politica. Ma viste le ultime pesanti delusioni e l'impressione che per qualche anno è meglio lasciar perdere, questa sta cedendo il primo posto ad un'altra occupazione, l'informatica, o meglio, , anzi, !
Non fosse altro perché lui (lei?) mi riempie di soddisfazioni.

L'altro giorno (lunedì) la scheda, come previsto, è arrivata. Poi pausa per aspettare il mio informatico di fiducia ché mi fidavo poco delle mie capacità (nel mentre mi acculturavo su come smontare e rimontare tutti i componenti del pc con le spine inserite ad occhi chiusi e in meno di 1 minuto).
Lavoro (tutto da solo) per:
  • preparare (rimuovi i vecchi driver ATI)
  • estrarre la vecchia scheda
  • introdurre la nuova scheda
  • porconare per liberare un cavetto molex per l'alimentazione usando 1 coltello, 1 cutter ed un cacciavite per sollevare la fascetta in plastica e non segare con lei anche i cavi sottostanti
insomma... un parto.
Poi riavvio il PC, parte Ubuntu, risoluzione a 800x600 vabbè. Installo i driver per la Nvidia usando Envy; va tutto bene, ma la risoluzione resta 800x600.
Qui entra l'informatico di fiducia, che coinvolgo nel riconfigurare Xorg.
Alla fine va tutto, ma non .
Eh no! mi compro la scheda video figa, voglio Compiz!
In 2 ore ho incasinato tanto il sistema che quando ho spento sapevo che la soluzione per uscirne era formattare ed installare da zero tutto, approfittandone per passare alla nuova versione, la 8.04.

La mattina seguente installo i driver per Windows (e mi ricordo del perché ho smesso di usarlo), dovrei formattare e reinstallare tutto anche lì.
Quindi reinstallo Ubuntu dal cd, installo la .
Che dire?
Va che è una meraviglia.
          il mio Ubuntu        
Dopo un paio di settimane di uso continuo posso proprio dirlo: ma quanto mi piace !
Da quando lo uso non ho più acceso Winzozz XP, salvo un paio di volte per fare il confronto.

Tutto rose e fiori? no, certamente no; la mia scheda video ha dei driver cani che mi impallano X (almeno penso sia quello il problema), quindi ho dovuto disabilitare tutte quelle belle cose 3D con cui tirarsela, e comunque tende ad andare molto lento in certe situazioni (ma io lo stresso).

Però ho tutti i programmi che mi servono:
  • Firefox
  • Thunderbird
  • Pidgin
  • Rhythmbox (molto bella novità)
  • OpenOffice
  • ...e una scarrellata di programmi con cui fare di tutto, tutti immancabilmente Free.

Pensare che tutto questo software, con tutto il lavoro che ci sta dietro, sia gratis, anzi, più che gratis, mi fa girare la testa e un qualche senso di colpa mi viene:
io che gli do in cambio?
Prima o poi mi cimenterò nelle traduzioni, magari, che mi sembrano l'unica cosa nella quale si possa contribuire senza far danni micidiali :-)

Pro rispetto a Winzozz XP?
non ho pagato per averlo, mentre il caro Winzozz costò la bellezza di 128 euro ivati; non mi sembra un dettaglio da poco!
Altro pro?
L'interfaccia grafica semplice, personalizzabile, molto più usabile e comoda di quella winzozziana (che è decisamente datata...)
Altro pro è la trasparenza: non so che farmene dei codici sorgente del software che ho installato, ma sapere che c'è una comunità di sviluppatori che controlla il "come" è fatto un software e quello che fa mi fa stare molto tranquillo; con Winzozz i comportamenti strani / che sfuggivano dalla mia volontà erano molti, senza contare che nessuno poteva sapere cosa faceva "veramente" il software... e perché ogni 3 mesi volesse controllare se la mia copia era originale?...
Ancora un pro? la gestione pacchetti per l'installazione e l'aggiornamento del software: è anni luce dal sistema di Winzozz (che consiste nel: "fate un po' come cazzo vi pare"); su Ubuntu basta andare su
"Applicazioni -> Aggiungi/Rimuovi..."
e compare una bellissima libreria con una marea di software tra cui scegliere, navigabile per categoria, tipo etc. Quando hai letto le descrizioni ed ha selezionato quello che ti serve (e deselezionato quello che non ti serve ma che hai già nel pc) basta dargli un Ok, e lui fa tutto. E tu nel frattempo continui a lavorare sapendo che difficilmente servirà riavviare il sistema al termine dell'installazione.
Il vero pro, per me, è comunque politico: la possibilità di avere un mercato che offra prodotti di qualità, gratuiti e su cui puoi avere il pieno controllo; e penso soprattutto a cosa può (potrebbe) fare un paese del terzo mondo grazie al Free software...

In definitiva, sperando che venga definitivamente risolto il problema dei driver con le dannatissime schede Ati (colpa di Ati, ci tengo a precisarlo), e sperando che il mercato del software in Europa si liberalizzi (avete già firmato la petizione? ne parlai anch'io mesi fa), ormai il passaggio a Linux son riuscito a farlo, e spero che non sarò costretto ad arretrare.
L'obiettivo di rendermi indipendente da Winzozz prima di esser costretto a passare a Vista è ormai raggiunto, ora dovrò mettermi a far proselitismo :-)

Tag: , , , ,
          Son tornato!        
È da un bel po' che non mi faccio vivo.
Non so perché, forse proprio non avevo nulla di interessante da raccontare, o meglio: se l'avevo era più interessante viverlo che raccontarlo!
Ci sono un mucchio di novità, ma prima quelle più fresche:
vi scrivo dal mio computer, ma con una BELLISSIMA , che in quanto a grafica e comodità è ampiamente avanti a Windows XP (su Vista non mi pronuncio).
E da qualche minuto riesco pure a fare quella gran bella (inutilissima) cosa che fa tanta invidia ai Windowsiani: il cubo!

Per una dimostrazione venire a casa mia (e possibilmente prima che si rompa la magia...)

Che altro?
Oggi il clima semi-estivo ed il gran vento mi hanno proprio stordito: bello bello, ma a me è parso più che altro un presagio di morte... caldo, a tratti afa... SUV ed auto che passano per le strade appestando l'aria, sole che pare dire: "questo giugno vi massacro tutti!".

Ah! ieri mi son fiondato al Lumiere a vedere Joe Strummer: Il futuro non è scritto.
Titolo tradotto a parte, era da tempo che il cinema non riusciva ad emozionarmi tanto. Ed anche messo da parte il mio amore per il personaggio, è proprio un documentario fatto bene.
Chi conosce i Clash non può non andarlo a vedere; chi non li conosce, o non ricorda bene chi sia questo , è bene che non perda l'occasione: il film-documentario è ben fatto, chiaro, trasmette le giuste emozioni.
Non è esaustivo, non potrebbe neanche lontanamente, ma da un quadro interessante ed emozionante.

          Install and Use exfat USB under Ubuntu        
Ubuntu exFAT

exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table) is a Microsoft file system optimized for flash drives. exFAT can be used where the NTFS file system is not a feasible solution (due to data structure overhead), or where the file size limit of the standard FAT32 file system is unacceptable.

exFAT has been adopted by the SD Card Association as the default file system for SDXC cards larger than 32 GB.

Native Linux support for exFAT is still limited. As of 2010, a working implementation under FUSE exists, which reached version 1.0 in 2013. So we need to install exfat-fuse and related packges in Ubuntu for using exFAT.

Install exfat package under Ubuntu


Update all repositories.
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update

Installing the below 2 packages.
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Use exFAT USB under Ubuntu


If Ubuntu doesn't auto-mount your exFAT formatted driver, you could mount exfat USB manually after installed the above 2 packages.
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /media/xxx
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo mount -t exfat /dev/sdxx /media/xxx


/media/xxx - means specific folder for exfat partition.
/dev/sdxx - means your exfat partition.

SB — это ловушка для возможных антимонопольных проверок. Формально правила Microsoft позволяют отключить SecureBoot и поставить Linux или любую другую ОС без проверок на ключ, который унизительным путём надо получать у самой Microsoft.

На самом деле, они реализовали эту схему крайне хитрым образом, просчитав поведение покупателей:
1) Microsoft — монополист на рынке PC. Они диктуют, какие технологии встраивать в материнские платы, потому что 96% покупателей будут устанавливать именно их операционную систему и каждый производитель, если хочет остаться на плаву, обязан подчиниться.
2) Большинство их покупателей технически безграмотны в той степени, чтобы зайти в настройки UEFI и отключить SecureBoot.
3) Таким образом, эти люди не смогут попробовать бесплатную альтернативу в виде дружелюбных дистрибутивов вроде Ubuntu и навсегда останутся в рабстве у Microsoft.

Если вам кажется, что я утрирую, сами посмотрите — раньше такое было? Хоть один случай? Я знаю историю с ACPI, который был спроектирован таким образом, чтобы работать с Windows и поставить средние по тяжести палки в колёса Linux. В итоге поддержку удалось реализовать, несмотря на сильный недостаток документации.

Но тут — другая история: уже на самом низком системном уровне Microsoft узурпировала право указывать, чему позволять загружаться, а чему — нет. Мысль о том, что HP и Intel действовали отдельно, разрабатывая UEFI, кажется глупой — ведь именно ПО Microsoft на этом железе они собирались запускать!

Поэтому: не вижу никаких оправдательных мотивов для этого поступка; на мой взгляд, как компания MS гнилые до основания, ими движет только прибыль, и не надо говорить про то, что это основная цель у корпораций, здесь совершенно реально запрещают использование альтернативных продуктов, и это нифига не нормально; и вот мысль по поводу будущего:

Мир движется в сторону мобильных устройств. Планшеты на Android — единственные, которые имеют в своих рядах модели с открытым загрузчиком, а девайсы от BlackBerry, Apple, и все сертифицированные для Windows 8 не позволяют запускать ни одну ОС из внешнего мира — это залочка десятилетия и, на мой взгляд, технологическая цензура. Мобильную Ubuntu можно будет поставить только на планшеты Android, остальные даже не дадут попробовать её запустить. Эта зловещая тенденция просто обязана быть остановлена, иначе мы попадем в новый феодальный век, где крупные корпорации будут стричь деньги с покупателей, просто не давая им право выбора.

Умных пользователей сейчас все меньше, потому что медиакомпании взяли какой-то совсем жесткий курс на отупление — как пример, пользователи Apple, у которых «всё работает» и они «скорее заплатят денежку, чем будут разбираться». Идеальные потребители. А где новых создателей взять?
          Where to put the gradle.properties file on Jenkins        
TL;DR: Put your gradle.properties file in the /var/lib/jenkins/.gradle/ directory on a standard Ubuntu install. Sometimes you need to have a gradle.properties file that is not included in your git repository. Many times this is because you need to have an api key that you would not like to be made public.

Italians overclock Pentium 4 to 8.18 GHz

WHILE FERRARI WAS soundly beaten by British machinery last weekend in Monaco, the Italians did their best to keep their pride up'n'running. This time, ThuG and his fellow members from OC Team Italy pushed their platinum sample Pentium 4 631 - to massive 8.18 GHz, making all those old-time gamedevs sweat with dreams what could have been. If the record is true, hats down lads.

OverclockersClub tested BenQ FP222WH, a 22" LCD widescreen monitor that sells for mediocre 269.99 US. Honestly, if you are thinking about a new monitor, this one just sounds like a dream. I remember when I bought my 22" iiyama Vision Master Pro. Dealer gave me a hefty discount, so I ended up paying only 2300 US dollars. Today, you get the same screen (albeit in a little lower resolution) for almost 10 times less, and I bought that iiyama in 2000.

Bit-Tech tested Corsair DDR3-1333 modules, that come in Dominator format (of course, with their tri-fan DHX cooling). Since benchmark results are less than stellar, guys gave conservative conclusion. Time for DDR3 will come, though.

And for those that do not want to spend massive amounts of money on new memory standard and appropriate motherboard but still want the best - Legit Reviews tested OCZ's PC2-9200 Reaper Edition memory.

HardwareSecrets tested MSI's GeForce 8500GT, board that is targeting entry-level market.

Overclockers from Down Under tested another silent graphics card, but this time around, we are talking about Gigabyte's vision of 8600GTS graphics card.

Virtual-Hideout tested Antec P182 aluminium case, probable choice for selected few that will be able to afford. However, this case packs some serious punch for those that intend to put multiple graphics cards or hot CPUs.

In meanwhile, Ocworkbench managed to get a hold of AMD's RD790 motherboard and ran four boards in Crossfire. This board will be all over Computex in more flavours than one, so brace for impact. All that we know is that AMD roadmaps claim this chipset comes with PCI Express 2.0, industry's first.

Phoronix decided to do a deep dive and compared ATi Drivers under Ubuntu and Windows operating systems. With Ubuntu coming even as a live CD, you should try to use Linux - Phoronix gives the lowdown for owners of ATI hardware.

CoolTechZone came up with a review of iRiver S10. Yes, there is somebody else making MP3 players other than Fruity Company. And this one makes iPod shuffle look like a giant.

          Setting up a Development Environment        
In order to perform any development, you need a development environment. How you choose to setup yours is up to you, however below I will detail how I did mine. Whichever way you choose you need to do 4 things: -
  • Provide a web server to serve up your modified content.
  • Create a web proxy server to redirect access to your web server.
  • Point your Panasonic device to your web proxy.
  • Download and host content from Panasonic's Viera Cast servers and modify them to your needs. This will be covered in the next post.
For my current environment I'm using Ubuntu Linux since it provides a full set of features including Apache 2 (web server) and Squid (web proxy). In future I intend to replicate this setup on my Western Digital MyBook World (NAS unit), which has a much smaller power footprint and is always-on. In theory the same should be possible for other customisable NAS units (Synology, Q-NAP et al).


Web Server

The web server I use is Apache 2. For development purposes I'm using a bog-standard out-of-the-box installation. In Ubuntu this serves pages from /var/www on port 80.


Web Proxy

The web proxy I'm using is Squid (default port 3128). I modified this slightly (by editing /etc/squid/squid.conf) to minimize the footprint as follows: -
  • Add "http_access allow all" (bad practice but this is development in my own home - You need to add something that lets your TV/device and development PC access the proxy).
  • Add "cache_dir null /tmp" and "maximum_object_size 0 KB" (to disable disk cache - we only care about the URL redirection features so this saves space).
  • Add "useragent_log /var/log/squid/useragent.log" (the reason will become clear soon).
  • Add "url_rewrite_program /etc/squid/mirror_and_redirect.sh" (this points to a redirect script we will create)
I then created a URL rewrite program called /etc/squid/mirror_and_redirect.sh (and made it executable) containing the following: -

#!/bin/bash

while read url rest; do
filename=`echo $url | sed 's^http://^^g' | sed 's^?.*^^g'`
if [ -f /var/www/$filename ]; then
# We found a matching local file to replace, so redirect to it and log the redirect.
echo "http://localhost/$filename"
echo "http://localhost/$filename" >> /var/log/squid/mirror_and_redirect.log
else
# No match, so don't modify the URL and log the URL.
echo
echo "$url" >> /var/log/squid/mirror_and_redirect.log
fi
done

The purpose of this script is a follows. Every HTTP request passed via our proxy is parsed by the script and compared against the contents of /var/www. If a matching file exists then it adds a redirect to http://localhost/our_replacement_file to redirect the client (i.e. the Panasonic device) to our local modified file. It logs all this information to mirror_and_redirect.log so we can see what's been served locally and what's been passed through.


Configure TV

Finally I configured my TV to access the web via the proxy. On my Panasonic G20 Plasma this is accessed under Menu...Setup...Network Setup...Proxy Settings. I set the address to the IP address of my Ubuntu server and port to 3128 (Squid). How you do yours depends on what you've got. If you can't figure it out, you probably shouldn't go any further :D

Assuming Squid is now working, Viera Cast should work as normal on your device. And now the fun begins...
          BITCOIN : What is it? How does this work?        
Okay, so maybe you would've been wondering from a while that what is a bitcoin that everyone has been talking about, how does this thing work and more importantly, how you can get them. So calm down peeps because you are about to know everything.


Basically, a BITCOIN is peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency introduced as open source software in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto.
It is a cryptocurrency, so-called because it uses cryptography for security. Users send payments by broadcasting digitally signed messages to the network. Transactions are verified, timestamped, and recorded by specialized computers into a shared public transaction history database called the block chain. The operators of these computers, known as miners, are rewarded with transaction fees and newly minted bitcoins.

Don't be surprised after knowing this but Bitcoin's exchange rates are way to high. It is damn true 1 BTC(bitcoin) has currently 952.5 USD. Isn't that super crazy. If you don't believe feel free to check the exchange rates here yourself.

That was the very basic knowledge about a bitcoin. But how does this thing work exactly ? This is the question that causes confusion. Here's a quick explanation.

Well you can watch this video for explanation of what is a bitcoin and how does this thing work or you can read the summary after the video.
 

  • TKLBAM 1.4 - codenamed "give me liberty or give me death!"

    Frees TKLBAM from its shackles so it can now backup files, databases and package management state without requiring TurnKey Linux, a TurnKey Hub account or even a network connection. Having those will improve the usage experience, but the new release does its best with what you give it.

    I've created a convenience script to help you install it in a few seconds on any Debian or Ubuntu derived system:

    URL=https://raw.github.com/turnkeylinux/tklbam/master/contrib/ez-apt-install.sh
    wget -O - -q $URL | PACKAGE=tklbam /bin/bash
    

    There's nothing preventing TKLBAM from working on non Debian/Ubuntu Linux systems as well, you just need to to install from source and disable APT integration with the --skip-packages option.

    Other highlights: support for PostgreSQL, MySQL views & triggers, and a major usability rehaul designed to make it easier to understand and control how everything works. Magic can be scary in a backup tool.

    Here's a TurnKey Hub screenshot I took testing TKLBAM on various versions of Ubuntu:

    Screenshot of TurnKey Hub backups

  • Announcement late? Blame my problem child

    As those of you following TurnKey closely may have already noticed, the website was actually updated with the TurnKey 13.0 images a few weeks ago.

    I was supposed to officially announce TurnKey 13's release around the same time but got greedy and decided to wrap up TKLBAM 1.4 first and announce them together.

    TKLBAM 1.4 wasn't supposed to happen. That it did is the result of a spontaneous binge of passionate development I got sucked into after realizing how close I was to making it a lot more useful to a lot more people. From the release notes:

    More people would find TKLBAM useful if:

    • If it worked on other Linux distributions (e.g., Debian and Ubuntu to begin with)

    • If users understood how it worked and realized they were in control. Magic is scary in a backup tool.

    • If it worked without the TurnKey Hub or better yet without needing a network connection at all.

    • If users realized that TKLBAM works with all the usual non-cloud storage back-ends such as the local filesystem, rsync, ftp, ssh, etc.

    • If users could more easily tell when something is wrong, diagnose the problem and fix it without having to go through TKLBAM's code or internals

    • If users could mix and match different parts of TKLBAM as required (e.g., the part that identifies system changes, the part that interfaces with Duplicity to incrementally update their encrypted backup archives, etc.)

    • If users could embed TKLBAM in their existing backup solutions

    • If users realized TKLBAM allowed them to backup different things at different frequencies (e.g., the database every hour, the code every day, the system every week)

      Monolithic all-or-nothing system-level backups are not the only way to go.

    • If it could help with broken migrations (e.g., restoring a backup from TurnKey Redmine 12 to TurnKey Redmine 13)

    • If it worked more robustly, tolerated failures, and with fewer bugs

    So that's why the release announcement is late and Alon is slightly pissed off but I'm hoping the end result makes up for it.

    TurnKey 13: from 0.5GB to 330GB in 5 years

    Big things have small beginnings. We launched TurnKey Linux five years ago in 2008 as a cool side project that took up 0.5GB on SourceForge and distributed 3 installable Live CD images of LAMP stack, Drupal and Joomla.

    5 years later the project has ballooned to over 330GB spanning 1400 images: 100 apps, 7 build types, in both 64-bit and 32-bit versions. So now we're getting upset emails from SourceForge asking if the project really needs to take up so much disk space.

    Yes, and sorry about that. For what it's worth, realizing TurnKey may eventually outgrow SourceForge is part of the reason we created our own independent mirror network (well, that and rsync/ftp access). Sourceforge is great, but just in case...

    93,555 lines of code in 177 git repos

    In terms of development, I recently collected stats on the 177 git repositories that make up the app library, self-contained build system, and a variety of custom components (e.g., TKLBAM, the TurnKey Hub).

    It turns out over the years we've written about 93,555 lines of code just for TurnKey, most of it in Python and shell script. Check it out:

    Late but open (and hopefully worth it)

    TurnKey 13 came out a few months later than we originally planned. By now we have a pretty good handle on what it takes to push out a release so the main reason for the delay was that we kept moving the goal posts.

    In a nutshell, we decided it was more important for the next major TurnKey release to be open than it was to come out early.

    The main disadvantage was that Debian 7 ("Wheezy") had come out in the meantime and TurnKey 12 was based on Debian 6 ("Squeeze"). On the other hand Debian 6 would be supported for another year and since TurnKey is just Debian under the hood nothing prevented impatient users who wanted to upgrade the base operating system to Debian 7 to go through the usual automated and relatively painless Debian upgrade procedure.

    So we first finished work on TKLDev, put it through the trenches with the TurnKey 12.1 maintenance release, and moved the project's development infrastructure to GitHub where all development could happen out in the open.

    We hoped to see a steady increase in future open source collaboration on TurnKey's development and so far so good. I don't expect the sea to part as it takes more than just the right tools & infrastructure to really make an open source project successful. It takes community and community building takes time. TurnKey needs to win over contributors one by one.

    Alon called TurnKey 13.0 "a community effort" which I think in all honesty may have been a bit premature, but we are seeing the blessed beginnings of the process in the form of a steadily growing stream of much appreciated community contributions. Not just new prototype TurnKey apps and code submissions but also more bug reports, feature requests and wiki edits.

    And when word gets out on just how fun and easy it is to roll your own Linux distribution I think we'll see more of that too. Remember, with TKLDev, rolling your own Debian based Linux distribution is as easy as running make:

    root@tkldev ~$ cd awesomenix
    /turnkey/fab/products/turnkey/awesomenix
    root@tkldev turnkey/awesomenix$ make
    

    You don't even have to use TKLDev to build TurnKey apps or use any TurnKey packages or components. You can build anything you want!

    Sadly, I've gotten into the nasty habit of prepending TKL - the TurnKey initials - to all the TurnKey related stuff I develop but under the hood the system is about as general purpose as it can get. It's also pretty well designed and easy to use, if I don't (cough) say so myself.

    I'll be delighted if you use TKLDev to help us improve TurnKey but everyone is more than welcome to use it for other things as well.

    3 new TurnKey apps - OpenVPN, Tendenci and Observium

      Matt Ayers from Amazon asked us to consider including an OpenVPN appliance in the next release and Alon blew it out of the park with the integration for this one.

      The new TurnKey OpenVPN is actually a 3 for 1 - TurnKey's setup process asks whether you want OpenVPN in client, server or gateway mode and sets things up accordingly.

      My favourite feature is the one that allows the admin to create self destructing URLs with scannable QRcodes that makes setting up client OpenVPN profiles on mobiles a breeze. That's pretty cool.

    • Tendenci: a content management system built specifically for NPOs (Non Profit Organizations).

      Upstream's Jenny Qian did such an excellent job developing the new TurnKey app that we accepted it into the library with only a few tiny modifications.

      This is the first time an upstream project has used TKLDev to roll their own TurnKey app. It would be awesome to see more of this happening and we'll be happy to aid any similar efforts in this vain any way we can.

    • Observium: a really cool autodiscovering SNMP based network monitoring platform.

      The new TurnKey app is based on a prototype developed by Eric Young, who also developed a few other prototype apps which we plan on welcoming into the library as soon as we work out the kinks. Awesome work Eric!

    Special thanks

    Extra special thanks

    • Alon's wife Hilla: for putting up with too many late work sessions.
    • Liraz's girlfriend Shir: for putting up with such a difficult specimen (in general).

              Announcing TurnKey Linux 12.0: 100+ ready-to-use solutions        

     

    Ladies and gentlemen, the 12.0 release is finally out after nearly 6 months of development and just in time to celebrate TurnKey's 4th anniversary. I'm proud to announce we've more than doubled the size of the TurnKey Linux library, from 45 appliances to over 100!

    As usual pushing out the release was much more work than we expected. I'd like to chalk that up to relentless optimism in the face of vulgar practical realities and basic common sense. On the flip side, we now have 100+ appliances of which 60+ are brand spanking new. Lots of good new applications are now supported.

    Despite all the hard work, or maybe because of it, working on the release was the most fun I've had in a while.

    You look away and then back and suddenly all this new open source stuff is out there, ready for prime time. So many innovations and competing ideas, all this free energy. We feel so privileged to have a front row seat and not just watch it all play out but also be able to play our own small role in showcasing so much high-quality open source work while making it just a bit more accessible to users.

    Unlike previous releases this latest release is based on Debian, not Ubuntu. We realize this may upset hardcore Ubuntu fans but if you read on, I'll try to explain below why "defecting" to Debian was the right thing for TurnKey.

    What's new?

    Deprecated appliances

    • AppEngine: With the addition of Go, we decided to split the Google App Engine SDK appliance into 3 separate language specific appliances (appengine-go, appengine-java and appengine-python).
    • Joomla16: 1.6 has reached end-of-life, and has been replaced with the Joomla 2.5 appliance.
    • EC2SDK: Insufficient amount of interest to warrant maintenance, especially now that the TurnKey Hub exists.
    • Zimbra and OpenBravo: Will be re-introduced once TurnKey supports 64bit architectures. Sorry folks. We're still working on that.

    Changes common to all TurnKey appliances - the TurnKey Core

    As most of you know TurnKey Core is the base appliance on top of which all other TurnKey appliances are built and includes all the standard goodies.

    Most of the ingredients Core is built out of comes directly from the Debian package repositories. Thanks to the quality of packaging refreshing these is usually very easy. A handful (e.g., webmin, shellinabox) we have to package ourselves directly from upstream because they're not in Debian. That takes more work, but still usually not a big deal.

    Then there are the parts of TurnKey we developed ourselves from scratch. They're our babies and giving them the love they need usually involves more work than all the other maintenance upgrades put together. The largest of these components is TKLBAM - AKA the TurnKey Linux Backup and Migration system.

    Version 1.2 of TKLBAM which went into the release received a round of much needed improvements.

    The highlights:

    • Backup
      • Resume support allows you to easily recover and continue aborted backup sessions.
      • Multipart parallel S3 uploads dramatically speed up how long it takes to upload backup archives to the cloud. Dial this up high enough and you can typically fully saturate your network connection.
    • Restore
      • Added embedded squid download cache to make it easier to retry failed restores (especially large multi-GB restores!) without resorting to suicide.
      • Fixed the annoying MySQL max_packet issue that made it unnecessarily difficult to restore large tables.

    In a bid to open up development to the community we've also tried to make TKLBAM more developer friendly by making its internals easier to explore via the "internals" command. We've also put the project up on GitHub. For a bit more detail, read the full the release notes for TKLAM 1.2.

    • 606 downloadable virtual appliance images (120 GB worth)

    Ubuntu vs Debian: the heart says Ubuntu, but the brains says Debian

    One of the hardest things we had to do for this release was choose between Ubuntu and Debian. We initially planned on doing both. Then eventually we realized that would nearly double the amount of testing we had to do - a major bottleneck when you're doing a 100+ appliances.

    Think about it. At this scale every one hour worth of extra testing and bugfixing translates into about 2-3 weeks of extra manwork. And to what ends? We already had way too much work to do, and the release kept getting pushed back, again and again, did it really matter whether we supported both of them like we originally intended? Would it really provide enough extra value to users to warrant the cost? They were after all quite similar...

    In the end, choosing to switch over to Debian and abandon Ubuntu support for now was hard emotionally but easy on a purely rational, technical basis:

    1. Ubuntu supports less than 25% of available packages with security updates

      Remember that TurnKey is configured to auto-install security updates on a daily basis.

      This may sound dangerous to users coming from other operating systems but in practice works greats, because security updates in the Debian world are carefully back-ported to the current package version so that nothing changes besides the security fix.

      Unfortunately, if you're using Ubuntu there's a snag because Ubuntu only officially supports packages in its "main" repository section with security updates. Less than 25% of packages are included in the "main" repository section. The rest go into the unsupported "universe" and "multiverse".

      So if an Ubuntu based TurnKey appliance needs to use any of the nearly 30,000 packages that Ubuntu doesn't officially support, those packages don't get updates when security issues are revealed. That means users may get exposed to significantly more risk than with an equivalent Debian based TurnKey appliance.

      While Ubuntu are continually adding packages to its main repository, they can't keep pace with the rate of packages being added to Debian by thousands of Debian Developers. In fact, with each release the gap is growing ever wider so that an increasingly smaller percentage of packages are getting into main. For example, between Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) and the upcoming Debian 7.0 (Wheezy) release 8000 packages were added. In a comparable amount of time, between Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) and Ubuntu 12.04 only 1300 packages were added to main.

    2. Debian releases are much more bug-free and stable

      Stability wise, there's no comparison. Even the Ubuntu Long Term Support releases that come out every two years have serious bugs that would have held up a Debian release.

      Fundamentally this is due to the differences in priorities that drive the release process.

      Debian prioritizes technical correctness and stability. Releases are rock solid because they only happen when all of the release critical issues have been weeded out.

      By contrast, Ubuntu prioritizes the latest and greatest on a fixed schedule. It's forked off periodically from the Debian unstable version, also known as "sid" - the toy story kid that will break your toys. It then gets released on a fixed pre-determined date.

      There's no magic involved that makes Ubuntu suddenly bug-free by its intended release date compared with the version of Debian it was forked from. Ubuntu has a relatively small development team compared with Debian's thousands of developers. I think they're doing an amazing job with what they have but they can't perform miracles. That's not how software development works.

      So Debian is "done" when its done. Ubuntu is "done" when the clock runs out.

    3. Ubuntu's commercial support is not available for TurnKey anyhow

      Part of the original rational for building TurnKey on Ubuntu was Canonical's commercial support services. We theorized many higher-end business type users wouldn't be allowed to use a solution that didn't have strong commercial support backing.

      But 4 years passed, and despite talks with many very nice high level people at Canonical, nothing happened on the ground, except that one time Alon was invited to participate in an Ubuntu Developer Summit.

      We realized if we wanted to offer commercial support for TurnKey we'd have to offer it ourselves and in that case it would be easier to support Debian based solutions than Ubuntu.

    Those were the main reasons for switching to Debian. Most of the people we talked to who cared about the issue one way or another preferred Debian for the same reasons, as did the majority of the 3000 people who participated in our website survey.

    Don't get me wrong. Despite all the mud that has been slung at Ubuntu recently we still have a huge amount of respect for Ubuntu and even greater respect for the Ubuntu community. Sure, mistakes have been made, we're all only human after all, but let's not forget how much Ubuntu has done for the open source community.

    Also, just because we don't have the resources to support Ubuntu versions of all TurnKey appliances right now doesn't mean we've ruled that out for the future. It's all about using the right tool for the job. If for some use cases (e.g., the desktop) that turns out to be Ubuntu, we'll use Ubuntu.

    How to upgrade existing appliances to TurnKey 12

    Simple: Just use TKLBAM to create a backup of an existing older version and then restore it on TurnKey 12.

    TKLBAM only backs up files that have changed since the default installation. That means if you changed a configuration file on TurnKey 11.3 that configuration file will be backed up and re-applied when you restore to TurnKey 12.

    What's next: opening up TurnKey, more developers = more appliances

    To those inevitable number of you who will be disappointed that a favorite application hasn't made it into this release, please be patient, we're working within very tight resource constraints. I'll admit it's our own damn fault. We realized about a couple of years too late we haven't been open enough in the way we've been developing TurnKey.

    Better late than never though. We're working very hard to fix this. Much of the work we've been doing over the last year has been to clean up and upgrade our development infrastructure so we can open it up fully to the community (and support additional architectures such as amd64!).

    Soon anyone will be able to build TurnKey appliances from scratch using the same tools the core development team is using. We're working on this because it's the right thing to do as an open source project. We're also hoping it will help more people from the open source community contribute to TurnKey as equal members and lift the labor bottleneck that is preventing us from scaling from 100+ to a 1000+  TurnKey appliances.

    Many, many thanks to...

    • Jeremy Davis, Adrian Moya, Basil Kurian, Rik Goldman (and his students), L.Arnold, John Carver, and Chris Musty. These guys submitted many TKLPatches that made it into this release, and even more importantly kept the community alive while we dropped off the face off the earth to focus on development.

      Their dedication and generosity have been an inspiration. We'd like the community to get to know them better so we'll soon be publishing interviews with them on the blog. Stay tuned.

    • Jeremy Davis AKA "The JedMeister": TurnKey forum moderator and all around super great guy. Jeremy is such an important part of what makes the TurnKey community tick I figured I should thank him at least twice. For emphasis. :)

    • The many rivers of upstream: Debian, Ubuntu and all of the wonderful open source communities who give love and write code for the software that goes into TurnKey.

    • Everyone else who helped test the 12.0 release candidate and provided ideas and feedback.

    • TurnKey users everywhere. Without you, TurnKey's audience, there really wouldn't be a point.


              New release candidates for TurnKey Linux 11.0 (part 1)        

    We've pushed out new RC (Release Candidates) builds for part 1 of the upcoming TurnKey Linux 11.0 release and we need your help testing them! See the appliance pages for download links.

    The current crop of release candidates only include Ubuntu Lucid based ISO images for now. Debian Lenny based images will follow, as will builds specially optimized for the the full range of supported virtualization and hosting platforms (e.g., VM build, EC2 AMIs, ESX4, Xen, Eucalyptus, etc.).

    In part 1 we've updated all the existing appliances except for Zimbra and Openbravo which we haven't got to yet. They'll be in part 2 along with all the fantastic new appliances developed during the community development contest.

    We broke up work on the next release into two parts because with all the new appliances the size of the appliance libary is doubling and that was a bit too much to handle in one go.

    Also, Alon is flying off to Orlando today for the Ubuntu Developer Summit and we wanted to have something out the door to show off to our friends in the Ubuntu community.

    New versioning scheme

    Instead of date based versions the new versioning scheme tracks TurnKey Core, regardless of the date or the underlying distribution.

    In other words a TurnKey Linux 11.0 appliance based on Ubuntu Lucid and a TurnKey Linux 11.0 appliance based on Debian Lenny are the same version because they have the same Core features.

    We're also hoping to get rid of some of the confusion with date based releases. For example, we pushed out the maintenance release 2009.10-2 in April 2010 but the version confused many people into thinking the appliances were obsolete, even though Hardy will be supported for another 3 years and security updates were installed on first boot and daily afterwards.

    Now built-in: TKLBAM (TurnKey Linux Backup and Migration)

    TKLBAM, which we announced a few weeks back as a separate component, is now tightly integrated with TurnKey out of the box. This includes a spiffy new Webmin module so users who dislike the command line can fully enjoy TKLBAM from the comfort of their web browser. Now you can backup and migrate fully working systems anywhere with literally just a few mouse clicks.

    As an old school Unix guy who loves the command line, what I like the most about the new Webmin module is how it facilitates easy discovery of TKLBAM's functionality and ties everything together seamlessly. No need to memorize funny command line flags or decipher manual pages for configuration options. At a glance you can see what can be done. If you don't understand something you just click on the question marks for embedded help pop-ups.

    New Core features

    Besides TKLBAM integration, we've made a broad range of improvements to the Core features shared by all appliances. In fact one could argue more has changed between the last beta and the release candidate than between the previous release and the beta.

    • Basic configuration dialogs on first boot: Previously only ISO builds would prompt you, during installation, to configure the appliance (e.g., set passwords). Users of the pre-installed builds (e.g,. the virtual machine build for VMWare/VirtualBox) had to do basic configuration by hand.

      With the new mechanism, the user experience is consistent for all build types. Also the first boot configuration mechanism is modular so appliance customizers can easily add their own hooks.

    • LVM (Logical Volume Management) support: instead of installing the appliance filesystem to a naked partition, we setup LVM by default. This makes it much easier to adjust storage capacity later. Also it adds basic support for filesystem snapshots, which future versions of TKLBAM may leverage to support new kinds of databases.

    • auto-apt-archive: uses GeoIP to automatically configure closest APT package archive for maximum network performance.

    • Command line convenience: a range of small improvements that make working with the command line a bit more comfortable:

      1. smart, programmable bash shell completion: helps you get more done with fewer keystrokes.

      2. support for $HOME/.bashrc.d hooks (see my blog post about shell hooks)

      3. persistent environment variables (see $HOME/.bashrc.d/penv):

        penv-set foo=bar
        exit
        
        # later...
        echo $foo
        
    • Inverted webshell color scheme: real men use white on black for their command line shells. And they like it!

    • Display system info in the login motd: seen in the above screenshot.

    Appliance specific changes

    • The latest and greatest: all appliances are now built using the newest software packages available with Long Term Support from Ubuntu. For software not available in the package management system (e.g., redmine), the latest stable software versions from upstream are used instead.
    • A range of performance optimizations: for example...
      • All LAMP-based appliances now includes xcache for PHP opcode caching which improves PHP performance, as code only has to be recompiled by PHP into opcode if it changes, and not on every page load.
      • All Rails based appliances now come with Ruby Enterprise which improves memory performance, traditionally one of Ruby's weak points.
    • Many small improvements and bug fixes
    • Exciting potential for new bugs:  as yet unidentified.

    Distribution level changes

    • Upgraded base distribution: from Ubuntu 8.04.3 to Ubuntu 10.04.1

      • The good: newer packages based on a new Ubuntu LTS release which will be supported for 5 years.

      • The bad: roughly 50MB in additional bloat for all appliances. This is mostly a consequence of bloated dependencies within the new Ubuntu version. Some of the dependencies are unnecessary for our use case (e.g., plymouth) but the only way to get rid of them is to fork the packages and we'd rather avoid that.

        Fortunately, the upcoming Debian Lenny based builds do not have this extra bloat so anyone who cares will have an alternative.

    • No more pinning: As discussed earlier we've discontinued use of complex package management configurations to achieve mixed hybrids of Ubuntu and Lucid.

    In the works...

    • Debian Lenny based equivalent builds
    • PostgreSQL support for TKLBAM
    • Part 2 of the TurnKey with dozens of new appliances
    • 64-bit support (it's about time!)

    That's all folks! Any questions?


              TKLBAM: a new kind of smart backup/restore system that just works        

    Drum roll please...

    Today, I'm proud to officially unveil TKLBAM (AKA TurnKey Linux Backup and Migration): the easiest, most powerful system-level backup anyone has ever seen. Skeptical? I would be too. But if you read all the way through you'll see I'm not exaggerating and I have the screencast to prove it. Aha!

    This was the missing piece of the puzzle that has been holding up the Ubuntu Lucid based release batch. You'll soon understand why and hopefully agree it was worth the wait.

    We set out to design the ideal backup system

    Imagine the ideal backup system. That's what we did.

    Pain free

    A fully automated backup and restore system with no pain. That you wouldn't need to configure. That just magically knows what to backup and, just as importantly, what NOT to backup, to create super efficient, encrypted backups of changes to files, databases, package management state, even users and groups.

    Migrate anywhere

    An automated backup/restore system so powerful it would double as a migration mechanism to move or copy fully working systems anywhere in minutes instead of hours or days of error prone, frustrating manual labor.

    It would be so easy you would, shockingly enough, actually test your backups. No more excuses. As frequently as you know you should be, avoiding unpleasant surprises at the worst possible timing.

    One turn-key tool, simple and generic enough that you could just as easily use it to migrate a system:

    • from Ubuntu Hardy to Ubuntu Lucid (get it now?)
    • from a local deployment, to a cloud server
    • from a cloud server to any VPS
    • from a virtual machine to bare metal
    • from Ubuntu to Debian
    • from 32-bit to 64-bit

    System smart

    Of course, you can't do that with a conventional backup. It's too dumb. You need a vertically integrated backup that has system level awareness. That knows, for example, which configuration files you changed and which you didn't touch since installation. That can leverage the package management system to get appropriate versions of system binaries from package repositories instead of wasting backup space.

    This backup tool would be smart enough to protect you from all the small paper-cuts that conspire to make restoring an ad-hoc backup such a nightmare. It would transparently handle technical stuff you'd rather not think about like fixing ownership and permission issues in the restored filesystem after merging users and groups from the backed up system.

    Ninja secure, dummy proof

    It would be a tool you could trust to always encrypt your data. But it would still allow you to choose how much convenience you're willing to trade off for security.

    If data stealing ninjas keep you up at night, you could enable strong cryptographic passphrase protection for your encryption key that includes special countermeasures against dictionary attacks. But since your backup's worst enemy is probably staring you in the mirror, it would need to allow you to create an escrow key to store in a safe place in case you ever forget your super-duper passphrase.

    On the other hand, nobody wants excessive security measures forced down their throats when they don't need them and in that case, the ideal tool would be designed to optimize for convenience. Your data would still be encrypted, but the key management stuff would happen transparently.

    Ultra data durability

    By default, your AES encrypted backup volumes would be uploaded to inexpensive, ultra-durable cloud storage designed to provide %99.999999999 durability. To put 11 nines of reliability in perspective, if you stored 10,000 backup volumes you could expect to lose a single volume once every 10 million years.

    For maximum network performance, you would be routed automatically to the cloud storage datacenter closest to you.

    Open source goodness

    Naturally, the ideal backup system would be open source. You don't have to care about free software ideology to appreciate the advantages. As far as I'm concerned any code running on my servers doing something as critical as encrypted backups should be available for peer review and modification. No proprietary secret sauce. No pacts with a cloudy devil that expects you to give away your freedom, nay worse, your data, in exchange for a little bit of vendor-lock-in-flavored convenience.

    Tall order huh?

    All of this and more is what we set out to accomplish with TKLBAM. But this is not our wild eyed vision for a future backup system. We took our ideal and we made it work. In fact, we've been experimenting with increasingly sophisticated prototypes for a few months now, privately eating our own dog food, working out the kinks. This stuff is complex so there may be a few rough spots left, but the foundation should be stable by now.

    Seeing is believing: a simple usage example

    We have two installations of TurnKey Drupal6:

    1. Alpha, a virtual machine on my local laptop. I've been using it to develop the TurnKey Linux web site.
    2. Beta, an EC2 instance I just launched from the TurnKey Hub.

    In the new TurnKey Linux 11.0 appliances, TKLBAM comes pre-installed. With older versions you'll need to install it first:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install tklbam webmin-tklbam
    

    You'll also need to link TKLBAM to your TurnKey Hub account by providing the API-KEY. You can do that via the new Webmin module, or on the command line:

    tklbam-init QPINK3GD7HHT3A
    

    I now log into Alpha's command line as root (e.g., via the console, SSH or web shell) and do the following:

    tklbam-backup
    

    It's that simple. Unless you want to change defaults, no arguments or additional configuration required.

    When the backup is done a new backup record will show up in my Hub account:

    To restore I log into Beta and do this:

    tklbam-restore 1
    

    That's it! To see it in action watch the video below or better yet log into your TurnKey Hub account and try it for yourself.

    Quick screencast (2 minutes)

    Best viewed full-screen. Having problems with playback? Try the YouTube version.

    The screencast shows TKLBAM command line usage, but users who dislike the command line can now do everything from the comfort of their web browser, thanks to the new Webmin module.

    Getting started

    TKLBAM's front-end interface is provided by the TurnKey Hub, an Amazon-powered cloud backup and server deployment web service currently in private beta.

    If you don't have a Hub account already, request an invitation. We'll do our best to grant them as fast as we can scale capacity on a first come, first served basis. Update: currently we're doing ok in terms of capacity so we're granting invitation requests within the hour.

    To get started log into your Hub account and follow the basic usage instructions. For more detail, see the documentation.

    Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below. But you'll probably want to check with the FAQ first to see if they've already been answered.

    Upcoming features

    • PostgreSQL support: PostgreSQL support is in development but currently only MySQL is supported. That means TKLBAM doesn't yet work on the three PostgreSQL based TurnKey appliances (PostgreSQL, LAPP, and OpenBravo).
    • Built-in integration: TKLBAM will be included by default in all future versions of TurnKey appliances. In the future when you launch a cloud server from the Hub it will be ready for action immediately. No installation or initialization necessary.
    • Webmin integration: we realize not everyone is comfortable with the command line, so we're going to look into developing a custom webmin module for TKLBAM. Update: we've added the new TKLBAM webmin module to the 11.0 RC images based on Lucid. In older images, the webmin-tklbam package can also be installed via the package manager.

    Special salute to the TurnKey community

    First, many thanks to the brave souls who tested TKLBAM and provided feedback even before we officially announced it. Remember, with enough eyeballs all bugs are shallow, so if you come across anything else, don't rely on someone else to report it. Speak up!

    Also, as usual during a development cycle we haven't been able to spend as much time on the community forums as we'd like. Many thanks to everyone who helped keep the community alive and kicking in our relative absence.

    Remember, if the TurnKey community has helped you, try to pay it forward when you can by helping others.

    Finally, I'd like to give extra special thanks to three key individuals that have gone above and beyond in their contributions to the community.

    By alphabetical order:

    • Adrian Moya: for developing appliances that rival some of our best work.
    • Basil Kurian: for storming through appliance development at a rate I can barely keep up with.
    • JedMeister: for continuing to lead as our most helpful and tireless community member for nearly a year and a half now. This guy is a frigging one man support army.

    Also special thanks to Bob Marley, the legend who's been inspiring us as of late to keep jamming till the sun was shining. :)

    Final thoughts

    TKLBAM is a major milestone for TurnKey. We're very excited to finally unveil it to the world. It's actually been a not-so-secret part of our vision from the start. A chance to show how TurnKey can innovate beyond just bundling off the shelf components.

    With TKLBAM out of the way we can now focus on pushing out the next release batch of Lucid based appliances. Thanks to the amazing work done by our star TKLPatch developers, we'll be able to significantly expand our library so by the next release we'll be showcasing even more of the world's best open source software. Stir It Up!

    This confirms why many "working" users have had to put up with major productivity issues due to the implementation of a mobile interface on the desktop. I'd be really interested in a survey of new Ubuntu converts from Windows and Mac to see if they came over from their dark sides because of cost or the Unity or Gnome 3 interfaces. I'm sticking with 10.10 until both Canonical and Gnome come to their senses and lose their arrogance. If they don't I'll probably have to go back to Window to get work done. I came to Ubuntu for it's underlying reliability, now it's UI is broken and it's developers are being wasted. It's such a shame:(

              shadowsocks 安装        

    Install the Command Line Client

    If you prefer command line client, then you can install it on your Linux with the following command.

    Debian

    sudo apt-get install python-pip sudo pip install shadowsocks

    Ubuntu

    Yes, you can use the above commands to install shadowsocks client on ubuntu. But it will install it under ~/.local/bin/ directory and it causes loads of trouble. So I suggest using su to become root first and then issue the following two commands.

    apt-get install python-pip pip install shadowsocks

    Fedora/Centos

    sudo yum install python-setuptools   or   sudo dnf install python-setuptools sudo easy_install pip sudo pip install shadowsocks

    OpenSUSE

    sudo zypper install python-pip sudo pip install shadowsocks

    Archlinux

    sudo pacman -S python-pip sudo pip install shadowsocks

    As you can see the command of installing shadowsocks client is the same to the command of installing shadowsocks server, because the above command will install both the client and the server. You can verify this by looking at the installation script output

    Downloading/unpacking shadowsocks Downloading shadowsocks-2.8.2.tar.gz Running setup.py (path:/tmp/pip-build-PQIgUg/shadowsocks/setup.py) egg_info for package shadowsocks  Installing collected packages: shadowsocks Running setup.py install for shadowsocks  Installing sslocal script to /usr/local/bin Installing ssserver script to /usr/local/bin Successfully installed shadowsocks Cleaning up...

    sslocal is the client software and ssserver is the server software. On some Linux distros such as ubuntu, the shadowsocks client sslocal is installed under /usr/local/bin. On Others such as Archsslocal is installed under /usr/bin/. Your can use whereis command to find the exact location.

    user@debian:~$ whereis sslocal sslocal: /usr/local/bin/sslocal

    Create a Configuration File

    we will create a configuration file under /etc/

    sudo vi /etc/shadowsocks.json

    Put the following text in the file. Replace server-ip with your actual IP and set a password.

    {
    "server":"server-ip",
    "server_port":8000,
    "local_address": "127.0.0.1",
    "local_port":1080,
    "password":"your-password",
    "timeout":600,
    "method":"aes-256-cfb"
    }

    Save and close the file. Next start the client using command line

    sslocal -c /etc/shadowsocks.json

    To run in the background

    sudo sslocal -c /etc/shadowsocks.json -d start

    Auto Start the Client on System Boot

    Edit /etc/rc.local file

    sudo vi /etc/rc.local

    Put the following line above the exit 0 line:

    sudo sslocal -c /etc/shadowsocks.json -d start

    Save and close the file. Next time you start your computer, shadowsocks client will automatically start and connect to your shadowsocks server.

    Check if It Works

    After you rebooted your computer, enter the following command in terminal:

    sudo systemctl status rc-local.service

    If your sslocal command works then you will get this ouput:


    ● rc-local.service - /etc/rc.local

    ├─ 887 watch -n 60 su matrix -c ibam
    └─1112 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/bin/sslocal -c /etc/shadowsocks....

    As you can see from the last line, the sslocal command created a process whose pid is 1112 on my machine. It means shadowsocks client is running smoothly. And of course you can tell your browser to connect through your shadowsocks client to see if everything goes well.

              Ubuntu One file services        
    Hi,

    We are writing to you to notify you that we will be shutting down the Ubuntu One file services, effective 1 June 2014. This email gives information about the closure and what you should expect during the shutdown process.

    As of today, it will no longer be possible to purchase storage or music from the Ubuntu One store. The Ubuntu One file services apps in the Ubuntu, Google, and Apple stores will be updated appropriately.

    As always, your content belongs to you.  You can simply download your files onto your PC or an external hard drive.  While the service will stop as of 1 June, you will have an additional two months (until 31 July 2014) to collect all of your content. After that date, all remaining content will be deleted.

    If you have an active annual subscription, the unused portion of your fees will be refunded. The refund amount will be calculated from today's announcement.

    We know you have come to rely on Ubuntu One, and we apologise for the inconvenience this closure may cause.  We've always been inspired by the support, feedback and enthusiasm of our users and want to thank you for the support you've shown for Ubuntu One. We hope that you'll continue to support us as together we bring a revolutionary experience to new devices.

              Setelah Instal Ubuntu        
    Setelah menginstal Ubuntu versi terbaru, ada beberapa hal yang biasa saya lakukan antara lain.

    1. Instal Google Chrome

    http://www.howopensource.com/2011/10/install-google-chrome-in-ubuntu-11-10-11-04-10-10-10-04/

    Tambah PPA

    Jalankan command di bawah untuk menambahkan ke repository.
    $ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'

    Update repository
    $ sudo apt-get update

    Install
    $ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

    2. Install plugin Youtube


    3. Mencoba fitur-fitur baru... kalau ada...




              Smart Internet        
    Cukup lama saya memakai Smart Internet dengan modem Haier D1200P yaitu sejak bulan April 2009. Saat itu harganya kalau tidak salah Rp 333.000 termasuk lebih murah jika dibandingkan dengan yang lain. Saat itu mendapatkan gratis internet selama 6 bulan, 2 giga perbulan. Saya berpikir dengan harga segitu jika ternyata jelek maka hewan-hewan yang saya teriakan hanya sedikit jumlahnya. Coba kalau harganya jutaan dan ternyata jelek pasti seluruh isi kebun binatang saya teriakkan semua.

    Setelah diaktifkan segera saya setting smart modem di ubuntu 8.10. Ternyata susah bagi pemula seperti saya untuk menyetingnya. Meskipun sudah berhasil, sampai sekarang masih harus dipancing menggunakan Windows. Kalau ada yang sudah berhasil tanpa dipancing saya dikasih tahu dong!!! Please!

    Paket yang saya gunakan ini cocok untuk chatting, fesbukan, ngeblog dan lain-lainnya yang ringan. Jangan coba coba untuk nyetel video atau download Ubuntu 9.10 ISO bisa berhari-hari baru selesai hehehe. Tapi untuk paket yang lebih mahal barangkali mampu.

    Speednya hanya segitu bagaimana bisa untuk mengembalikan jati diri bangsa?

    Karena koneksinya tidak cukup kencang terpaksa harus berusaha agar tetap bisa dipakai dengan nyaman salah satunya adalah menggunakan google chrome untuk ubuntu, browser yang terkenal ringan.

    Sebelum menggunakan pastikan juga sinyal smart di daerah anda cukup bagus kalau jelek seperti daerah saya maka harus pakai wajan hehehe.

              Pengalaman menggunakan Linux dari seorang pemula        
    Pada bulan Juli 2008 untuk pertama kalinya saya menginstal Ubuntu dan menggunakan sampai sekarang. Sebelumnya memang pernah menginstal Mandriva tapi berhubung saat itu sering mendapatkan masalah akhirnya kembali menggunakan Window$$.

    Seiring dengan semakin murahnya layanan internet maka saat itu bergabung dengan tetangga menggunakan RT/RW net. Tapi saat ini sudah pindah rumah sehingga kembali menjadi fakir benwit dan berharap "fakir benwit dan anak terlantar dipelihara oleh negara", tapi sudahlah yang penting masih bisa ngenet meskipun lemot, sambil mencari provider yang murah dan kencang. Saat itu, dengan layanan internet unlimited yang lumayan kencang menurut saya, kecepatan download sekitar 200 kbps maka jendela dunia seperti terbuka lebar.

    Saat itulah keinginan untuk menggunakan linux kembali menggelora setelah membaca beberapa rekan blogger yang menggunakan Ubuntu. Pada tanggal 10 Juli 2008 Ubuntu 8.04 saya instal di PC dengan sukses. Sebelum ada layanan internet di rumah, jika menemukan masalah memang tidak tahu harus kemana mencari cara untuk memecahkan masalah tersebut. Setelah ada layanan internet banyak permasalahan dapat dipecahkan dengan searching menggunakan searching engine.

    Beberapa kenalan yang berniat untuk menggunakan Linux pernah menanyakan mengenai linux setelah membaca tulisan di blog saya. Dia menanyakan kenapa sound tidak bisa hidup dan beberapa hal lainnya. Saya hanya menjawab "Kalau ada masalah seperti itu nanya ke Google aja". Setelah beberapa hari dia membalas "Terima kasih saya sekarang berhasil menggunakan linux". Padahal semua orang bisa memberi jawaban seperti saya hehehehe.

    Pernah juga ada blogger yang menanyakan permasalahan melalui komentarnya di blog ini. Sebenarnya jika saya bisa membantu pastilah saya tidak keberatan untuk membantu, tapi berhubung pemula sehingga banyak tidak tahunya. Paling jawaban andalan saya adalah "Silahkan googling banyak rekan blogger yang menulis hal itu".

    Dari pengembaraan di dunia maya dan pengalaman, saya mendapatkan tips agar bisa terus eksis menggunakan Linux, diantaranya :

    1. Mengoprek aplikasi yang biasa dioprek di Windows tapi kali ini pakai Linux. Saat menggunakan windows saya suka download Youtube dan tube-tube lainnya hehehe, menggunakan aplikasi namanya Unlocker. Setelah menggunakan linux ternyata cara downloadnya sangat mudah, jika ingin tahu silahkan klik di sini. Dan bagi yang biasa menggunakan sotosop bisa menggunakan GIMP seperti di sini. Dan masih ada lagi yang lainnya dapat dibaca di sini.
    2. Sediakan layanan internet yang memadai, seperti yang saya sampaikan di atas. Dulu mungkin mahal sekali untuk menyediakan layanan internet. Tapi sekarang jaman sudah berubah. Sekarang jamannya internet murah jika sampeyan berada pada waktu dan tempat yang tepat.
    3. Jika ingin mahir silahkan kursus linux. Tapi hal ini tidak saya lakukan.
    4. Bergabung dengan komunitas pengguna linux. Saat ini saya bergabung dengan http://solvewithit.com/, di situ banyak rekan blogger yang berbagi pengalaman tentang linux.
    5. Jika belum punya komputer silahkan beli komputer dulu. Jika ke warnet silahkan ke warnet linux, untuk yang satu ini ahlinya adalah kang Pradna.

    Dan setelah menggunakan linux saya merasakan berbagai manfaat dan keuntungan :

    1. Untuk memilikinya sangat murah bisa langsung download atau kalau ubuntu bisa minta ke ShipIT.
    2. Tidak pernah bermasalah dengan virus seperti saat menggunakan O/S yang lain.
    3. Relatif lebih stabil jika dibanding dengan windows. Dulu saat masih menggunakan Windows saya merasakan komputer semakin lama semakin lemot entah karena virus, crash atau hal lain yang tidak saya ketahui. Lain halnya dengan linux yang tetap stabil.
    4. Update gratis, yang penting tersedia layanan internet.

    Sedangkan kerugian menggunakan linux seperti yang pernah saya baca di sebuah blog (lupa nama blognya) adalah :
    1. Lupa instal update antivirus sehingga tidak bisa menjawab jika ada yang nanya "Punya update antivirus nggak?".
    2. Tidak tahu cara nge-crack sofware.

    Akhir kata sebenarnya saya menulis tentang linux bukan karena ahli atau geek (bisa dilihat dari isi tulisan) tapi berharap ada masukan dari komentar dan bisa sharing dengan rekan-rekan semua.

    Tulisan ini dibuat untuk menyukseskan Lomba Blog Open Source P2I-LIPI dan Seminar Open Source P2I-LIPI 2009.

    Demikianlah pengalaman yang dapat saya bagikan kepada rekan blogger. Atas perhatiannya saya ucapkan terima kasih.

    Wassalam,

    Endar Fitrianto

    Nb. Berhubung tulisan pemula pasti banyak istilah istilah yang kurang tepat penggunaanya. Mohon maaf dan harap maklum ya!
    Tulisan ini hanyalah pendapat dari seorang pemula jadi sampeyan boleh saja tidak sependapat.
              Google Chrome untuk Ubuntu        
    Berhubung belum menemukan koneksi yang cepat (ah... alesan padahal kantongnya kering hehehe) maka sampai sekarang harus tetap mencari teknik survival menggunakan sinyal smart agar bisa melangsungkan kehidupan ngeblog. Salah satunya adalah mencari browser yang ringan.

    Bagaimana mau Mengembalikan jati diri bangsa kalau loading saja lama. Ah.. ngaco, sejak saya kenal om Khay memang omongan saya sering ngaco.

    Jadi teringat dulu sekitar bulan September 2008, saat saya masih di Purwokerto yang tidak kekurangan benwit pernah mencoba google chrome yang terkenal ringan. Ditambah lagi posting dari beberapa teman yang tergabung dalam linuxperiences.wordpress.com (eh sudah reinkarnasi menjadi http://solvewithit.com/)yang mana inisiatornya (apa maning kuwe kwekekek) adalah kang Mahendra. Kang Andy dan kang Pradna sudah mencoba dan merasakan kenikmatannya. Sayapun pengen sekali menikmati kemolekan tubuhnya keunggulannya dalam hal kecepatannya.

    Caranya menggunakan Google Chrome untuk Ubuntu alias Chromium Web Browser yaitu :

    1. Buka System/Administration/Software Sources dan add apt line

    Ubuntu 9.04
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

    Ubuntu 8.10
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

    Ubuntu 8.04
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

    2. Selanjutnya, buka terminal dan enter:

    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

    Tunggu sampai selesai, di tempat saya memakan waktu lebih dari 5 jam, huasyem tenan, padahal cuma 16 MB.

    3. Buka Applications/Internet/Chromium Web Browser



    Akhirnya lengkap sudah saya memakai produknya mbah google, ngeblog pakai blogspot, browser pakai Chrome, searching pakai google.co.id, yang belum apa ya? Mungkin sebentar lagi bikin kopi pakai produknya mbah google hehehe.
              rebooting        
    it begins! (again.) i think living independently is good for me. i feel like a burden when living off other people, and having my own place is always nice. more or less settled in now, all the account information has been updated, bills set up etc. had a slight hitch on Thursday (08.10.15) when my old Fedora laptop finally gave up the ghost. the HDD made an ominous, bomb-like ticking noise for a few minutes, the system abruptly stopped responding, then the power died and refused to power back on. no luck with diagnostics/repairs that night or the morning after, until one last Chinese reboot convinced the machine to power on and load GRUB. from here i was able to get into Fedora, but only after about seven or eight minutes of loading and fan noise... when i actually got the window manager up, i found it responding slower than if i were sending commands via satellite from the fucking Moon. the terminal was no exception. i'd click or press a key, and literally several entire minutes would go by before the machine reflected what i'd pressed by opening a menu, showing the typed character onscreen, switching windows or whatever. with this excruciatingly slow method, i transferred my WIP novel to an SD card (it was the only irreplaceable file, i'd lost its backup on USB in the moving chaos). the machine itself is unusable and not worth buying a replacement hard drive for, so i haven't lost any data this time, but i have lost that. a new one's coming in a few weeks. it's one of these nice cheap preloaded Ubuntu ones for poor people so it should suit me fine. i don't need an SSD or fifty terabytes of disk space or 16G RAM, i just need some form of Linux laptop so i can function.

    and meds. i also need lots of pain meds so i can function.

    this Hallowe'en i will be speaking about transhumanism and biohacking in Nottingham, not sure of the exact place and time yet. i'll put up a post and a twatter update when i do, it shouldn't be very expensive if anyone wants to show up.

    other news: next planned work is to upgrade my first ever implant, the little RFID ampoule tag i used for the various access hacks i took out of RFID Toys. it's very old and not writable or secured, so i've been wanting a replacement chip for a long time & am now in a position to replace it. (i say "replace", i really mean "install a new one and just stop using the old one because it's a pain in the arse to get things back out from under the skin of the hands and i can't be bothered".) i have a few ideas re where to source a suitable tag. will update you all as i get there.

              Ubuntu 14.04 安装 php nginx mysql JDK 8 svn        

    安装 MySQL 5 数据库

    安装 MySQL 运行命令:

    sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client

    将mysql的datadir从默认的/var/lib/mysql 移到/app/data/mysql下,操作如下:
    1.修改了/etc/mysql/my.cnf,改为:datadir = /app/data/mysql
    2.cp -a /var/lib/mysql /app/data/
    3./etc/init.d/mysql start


    如果出现系统报错,无法启动mysql,日志显示为:Can't find file: "./mysql/plugin.frm'(errno:13)
    [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run mysql_upgrade to create it.

    修改系统的chroot,需要修改/etc/apparmor.d下的相关文件,这里以mysql为例,需要修改:usr.sbin.mysqld和abstractions/mysql两个文件。

    1.修改usr.sbin.mysqld里面的两行内容:/var/lib/mysql/ r,改为:/app/data/mysql/ r,/var/lib/mysql/** rwk,改为:/app/data/mysql/** rwk,
    2.修改abstractions/mysql中一行:/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock rw,改为:/app/data/mysql/mysql.sock rw,
    3.重新加载apparmor服务:/etc/init.d/apparmor reload

    安装 Nginx

    在安装 Nginx 之前,如果你已经安装 Apache2 先删除在安装 nginx:

    service apache2 stop
    update-rc.d -f apache2 remove
    sudo apt-get remove apache2

    sudo apt-get install nginx

    安装 PHP5

    我们必须通过 PHP-FPM æ‰èƒ½è®©PHP5正常工作,安装命令:

    lxh@ubuntu:~$ sudo vim ~/.profile

    在文件最后加入

    export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25/
    export JRE_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25/jre
    export CLASSPATH=.:$JAVA_HOME/lib/dt.jar:$JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar:$JAVA_HOME/lib:$JRE_HOME/lib:$CLASSPATH
    export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

    保存退出,并通过命令使脚本生效:

    lxh@ubuntu:~$ $source ~/.profile

    配置默认JDK版本

    在有的系统中会预装OpenJDK,系统默认使用的是这个,而不是刚才装的。所以这一步是通知系统使用Oracle的JDK,非OpenJDK。

    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25/bin/java 300
    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25/bin/javac 300
    sudo update-alternatives --config java

    因为我是在虚拟机中安装的Ubuntu 14.04,默认不安装OpenJDK,所以没有需要选择的JDK版本。如果是在物理机上安装的Ubuntu版本,会出现几个候选项,可用于替换 java (提供 /usr/bin/java)。

    ====================================

    编译安装nginx 
    1. 下载最新版nginx
    2.解压
    3. 安装
    $ ./configure  #检查编译前置条件
    $ make  #编译
    $ sudo make install  #使用sudo权限进行安装
    安装后路径在 /usr/local/
    启动nginx 
    /usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx
    1)使用在 /etc/init.d/ 目录下创建名为 nginx 文件,注意没有后缀名,将以下内容复制到该文件中(感谢提供脚本的兄弟)。
     1 #! /bin/sh
     2 #用来将Nginx注册为系统服务的脚本
     3 #Author CplusHua
     4 #http://www.219.me
     5 #chkconfig: - 85 15
     6 set -e
     7 PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
     8 DESC="Nginx Daemon"
     9 NAME=nginx
    10 DAEMON=/usr/local/nginx/sbin/$NAME
    11 SCRIPTNAME=/etc/init.d/$NAME
    12 #守护进程不存在就退出
    13 test -x $DAEMON ||exit 0
    14 d_start(){
    15   $DAEMON ||echo -n "aready running"
    16 }
    17 d_stop(){
    18   $DAEMON -s quit || echo -n "not running"
    19 }
    20 d_reload(){
    21   $DAEMON -s reload || echo -n "could not reload"
    22 }
    23 case "$1" in
    24   start)
    25     echo -n "Starting $DESC: $NAME"
    26     d_start
    27     echo "."
    28   ;;
    29   stop)
    30     echo -n "Stopping $DESC: $NAME"
    31     d_stop
    32     echo "."
    33   ;;
    34   reload)
    35     echo -n "Reloading $DESC: configurationg.."
    36     d_reload
    37     echo "reloaded."
    38   ;;
    39   restart)
    40     echo -n "Restarting $DESC: $NAME"
    41     d_stop
    42     sleep 3
    43     d_start
    44     echo "."
    45   ;;
    46   *)
    47     echo "Usage: $SCRIPTNAME {start|stop|restart|reload}" >&2
    48     exit 3
    49   ;;
    50 esac
    51 
    52 exit 0



    2)添加权限
        $ sudo chmod +x nginx
    3)服务方式启动 如果配置服务前已启动,执行以下命令停止Nginx。
        $ sudo service nginx stop
    4)启动Nginx
        $ sudo service nginx start

    pastingnginx出现connect() to unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock failed (13: Permission denied)的错误

    处理方式是:编辑/etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf文件,

    将以下的注释去掉:
        listen.owner = www-data
        listen.group = www-data
        listen.mode = 0660

    然后重启php5-fpm
        $ sudo service php5-fpm restart

              Skinny 4G Fixed Wireless speed/stability issues        
    Long story short, I'm helping a friend who is having a bit of trouble with Skinny's fixed 4G Broadband.I actually created a whole pdf file with all the info, then realized I can't upload that here, then I'd have to link to it, and no one would probably be bothered to read it, so I've basically copied and pasted it here.

    Skinny 4G speed issues

    Control test - VDSL connection - line speeds 54.8/11.1

    Ubuntu Zesty Zapus (very zesty) downloaded from UC - graph includes speed test result

    Speedtest on Skinny 4G - this is being tested literally next door (about 150m away) to where the modem is normally used, we probably have a little less signal here. RSRQ: -7dB

    RSRP: -105dBm

    RSSI: -79dBm

    SINR: 12dB

    Ubuntu Zesty Zapus (not quite as zesty as before) downloaded from UC - graph includes speed test result

    This above graph isn't quite typical, but still a bit odd. You can see the Ubuntu download start, and then die right off. I re-ran the speedtest while the download was still in progress (see the yellow in the middle, the green to the left of the yellow is the speedtest download), and saw around 15Mbps again, but the download was still very slow - just as the speedtest upload was about to finish, the Ubuntu download sped up again. You can see it dropped off and sped up again once after that, but it was slow for a shorter amount of time. That's not typical of the issues the user is seeing - generally a download (say a Steam or Origin update) would slow down, and stay slow until it was paused for a minute or so, and on resuming the download it would start off quick again, then gradually slow down. The user didn't think they were seeing the speed change quite as aggressively as we are here.

    This graph above is a Nvidia driver download - as you can see the download speed has dropped right down part way through, then sped up again. Not really the same as the user is seeing, and I don't think that kind of drop is anything too unusual for a 4G connection?

    This is a much better example - this is back where the modem normally lives - this from the user: The blue circle is a steam download I started. You can see the download declined pretty much straight away. Within 30 seconds of the download starting.

    The orange circle is the same download being resumed after I paused it briefly. Again it dropped pretty quickly.

    The green circle is a uTorrent download. It wasn't capped at all for the entirety of the download.

    So I guess the question is this. Spark and Skinny both confirm there is no traffic shaping on their network, so how can we explain this behaviour? One very odd thing was the speedtest that was run during the Ubuntu download - the Ubuntu download had slowed to around 100 - 150kbps, but we still saw 15Mbps download on a speedtest while the Ubuntu download was in progress, so I guess this confirms that the connection itself is still solid. Really interested to hear any thoughts on this. Not accusing Spark or Skinny of anything at all - this just seems like unexpected behaviour and we'd love to see what other's thoughts are, or if anyone could recommend some better methods of testing, or could compare some of your own results? Perhaps our expectations are unrealistic. Thanks heaps!

              Running The KestrelHttpServer On Linux With CoreCLR        

    Being both a long-time .NET developer and Linux hobbyist, I was very excited about the recent ‘go live’ announcement for CoreCLR on Linux (and Windows and Mac). I thought I’d have a play with a little web server experiment on an Amazon EC2 instance. To start with I tried to get the KesteralHttpServer sample application working which wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped, so this post is a note of the steps you currently need.

    So first create a new Ubuntu Server 14.04 AMI:

    image[5]

    With a t2.micro instance type:

    image[11]

    Next log in and update:

    ssh -i .ssh/mykey.pem ubuntu@-the-ip-address
    ...
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    Currently there are two different sets of instructions for installing CoreCLR on Linux. The first one I found (I think linked from Scott Hanselman’s blog) shows how to use the standard Debian package manager to install the new ‘dotnet’ comand line tool. Apparently Kestrel will not currently work with this. The second set of instructions use the existing ‘dnvm’, ‘dnu’ and ‘dnx’ tools. These do work, but you need to get the latest unstable RC2 version of CoreCLR, like this:

    First install the Dot Net Version Manager tool:

    sudo apt-get install unzip curl
    curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aspnet/Home/dev/dnvminstall.sh | DNX_BRANCH=dev sh && source ~/.dnx/dnvm/dnvm.sh
    source /home/ubuntu/.dnx/dnvm/dnvm.sh

    Next install the latest unstable (thus the '-u' flag) CoreCLR:

    sudo apt-get install libunwind8 gettext libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev zlib1g libicu-dev uuid-dev
    dnvm upgrade -u -r coreclr

    At the time of writing this installed 1.0.0-rc2-16357

    image[17]

    You also need to follow the instructions to build the libuv library from source. This sounds hairy, but it worked fine for me:

    sudo apt-get install make automake libtool curl
    curl -sSL https://github.com/libuv/libuv/archive/v1.8.0.tar.gz | sudo tar zxfv - -C /usr/local/src
    cd /usr/local/src/libuv-1.8.0
    sudo sh autogen.sh
    sudo ./configure
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    sudo rm -rf /usr/local/src/libuv-1.8.0 && cd ~/
    sudo ldconfig

    Next get the KestrelHttpServer source code:

    git clone https://github.com/aspnet/KestrelHttpServer.git

    Restore the Kestrel packages by running dnu restore in the root of the repository:

    cd KestrelHttpServer
    dnu restore

    Next navigate to the sample app and restore the packages there too:

    cd samples/SampleApp/
    dnu restore

    Now you should be able to run the sample app by typing:

    dnx web

    image[23]

    Voilà!

    There’s obviously some way to go before this is a straightforward out-of-the-box experience. The team should also try and unify their getting started instructions because there are various different conflicting pages floating around. The Kestrel team were very helpful though in getting this working. Now to do something with my new found Linux web server.


              A Docker ‘Hello World' With Mono        

    Docker is a lightweight virtualization technology for Linux that promises to revolutionize the deployment and management of distributed applications. Rather than requiring a complete operating system, like a traditional virtual machine, Docker is built on top of Linux containers, a feature of the Linux kernel, that allows light-weight Docker containers to share a common kernel while isolating applications and their dependencies.

    There’s a very good Docker SlideShare presentation here that explains the philosophy behind Docker using the analogy of standardized shipping containers. Interesting that the standard shipping container has done more to create our global economy than all the free-trade treaties and international agreements put together.

    A Docker image is built from a script, called a ‘Dockerfile’. Each Dockerfile starts by declaring a parent image. This is very cool, because it means that you can build up your infrastructure from a layer of images, starting with general, platform images and then layering successively more application specific images on top. I’m going to demonstrate this by first building an image that provides a Mono development environment, and then creating a simple ‘Hello World’ console application image that runs on top of it.

    Because the Dockerfiles are simple text files, you can keep them under source control and version your environment and dependencies alongside the actual source code of your software. This is a game changer for the deployment and management of distributed systems. Imagine developing an upgrade to your software that includes new versions of its dependencies, including pieces that we’ve traditionally considered the realm of the environment, and not something that you would normally put in your source repository, like the Mono version that the software runs on for example. You can script all these changes in your Dockerfile, test the new container on your local machine, then simply move the image to test and then production. The possibilities for vastly simplified deployment workflows are obvious.

    Docker brings concerns that were previously the responsibility of an organization’s operations department and makes them a first class part of the software development lifecycle. Now your infrastructure can be maintained as source code, built as part of your CI cycle and continuously deployed, just like the software that runs inside it.

    Docker also provides docker index, an online repository of docker images.  Anyone can create an image and add it to the index and there are already images for almost any piece of infrastructure you can imagine. Say you want to use RabbitMQ, all you have to do is grab a handy RabbitMQ images such as https://index.docker.io/u/tutum/rabbitmq/ and run it like this:

    docker run -d -p 5672:5672 -p 55672:55672 tutum/rabbitmq

    The –p flag maps ports between the image and the host.

    Let’s look at an example. I’m going to show you how to create a docker image for the Mono development environment and have it built and hosted on the docker index. Then I’m going to build a local docker image for a simple ‘hello world’ console application that I can run on my Ubuntu box.

    First we need to create a Docker file for our Mono environment. I’m going to use the Mono debian packages from directhex. These are maintained by the official Debian/Ubuntu Mono team and are the recommended way of installing the latest Mono versions on Ubuntu.

    Here’s the Dockerfile:

    #DOCKER-VERSION 0.9.1
    #
    #VERSION 0.1
    #
    # monoxide mono-devel package on Ubuntu 13.10

    FROM ubuntu:13.10
    MAINTAINER Mike Hadlow <mike@suteki.co.uk>

    RUN sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y -q software-properties-common
    RUN sudo add-apt-repository ppa:directhex/monoxide -y
    RUN sudo apt-get update
    RUN sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y -q mono-devel

    Notice the first line (after the comments) that reads, ‘FROM  ubuntu:13.10’. This specifies the parent image for this Dockerfile. This is the official docker Ubuntu image from the index. When I build this Dockerfile, that image will be automatically downloaded and used as the starting point for my image.

    But I don’t want to build this image locally. Docker provide a build server linked to the docker index. All you have to do is create a public GitHub repository containing your dockerfile, then link the repository to your profile on docker index. You can read the documentation for the details.

    The GitHub repository for my Mono image is at https://github.com/mikehadlow/ubuntu-monoxide-mono-devel. Notice how the Docker file is in the root of the repository. That’s the default location, but you can have multiple files in sub-directories if you want to support many images from a single repository.

    Now any time I push a change of my Dockerfile to GitHub, the docker build system will automatically build the image and update the docker index. You can see image listed here: https://index.docker.io/u/mikehadlow/ubuntu-monoxide-mono-devel/

    I can now grab my image and run it interactively like this:

    $ sudo docker pull mikehadlow/ubuntu-monoxide-mono-devel

    Disabled: none
    Misc: softdebug
    LLVM: supported, not enabled.
    GC: sgen
    exit

    Next let’s create a new local Dockerfile that compiles a simple ‘hello world’ program, and then runs it when we run the image. You can follow along with these steps. All you need is a Ubuntu machine with Docker installed.

    First here’s our ‘hello world’, save this code in a file named hello.cs:

    using System;

    namespace Mike.MonoTest
    {
    public class Program
    {
    public static void Main()
    {
    Console.WriteLine("Hello World");
    }
    }
    }

    Next we’ll create our Dockerfile. Copy this code into a file called ‘Dockerfile’:

    #DOCKER-VERSION 0.9.1

    FROM mikehadlow/ubuntu-monoxide-mono-devel

    ADD . /src

    RUN mcs /src/hello.cs
    CMD ["mono", "/src/hello.exe"]

    Once again, notice the ‘FROM’ line. This time we’re telling Docker to start with our mono image. The next line ‘ADD . /src’, tells Docker to copy the contents of the current directory (the one containing our Dockerfile) into a root directory named ‘src’ in the container. Now our hello.cs file is at /src/hello.cs in the container, so we can compile it with the mono C# compiler, mcs, which is the line ‘RUN mcs /src/hello.cs’. Now we will have the executable, hello.exe, in the src directory. The line ‘CMD [“mono”, “/src/hello.exe”]’ tells Docker what we want to happen when the container is run: just execute our hello.exe program.

    As an aside, this exercise highlights some questions around what best practice should be with Docker. We could have done this in several different ways. Should we build our software independently of the Docker build in some CI environment, or does it make sense to do it this way, with the Docker build as a step in our CI process? Do we want to rebuild our container for every commit to our software, or do we want the running container to pull the latest from our build output? Initially I’m quite attracted to the idea of building the image as part of the CI but I expect that we’ll have to wait a while for best practice to evolve.

    Anyway, for now let’s manually build our image:

    $ sudo docker build -t hello .
    Uploading context 1.684 MB
    Uploading context
    Step 0 : FROM mikehadlow/ubuntu-monoxide-mono-devel
    ---> f259e029fcdd
    Step 1 : ADD . /src
    ---> 6075dee41003
    Step 2 : RUN mcs /src/hello.cs
    ---> Running in 60a3582ab6a3
    ---> 0e102c1e4f26
    Step 3 : CMD ["mono", "/src/hello.exe"]
    ---> Running in 3f75e540219a
    ---> 1150949428b2
    Successfully built 1150949428b2
    Removing intermediate container 88d2d28f12ab
    Removing intermediate container 60a3582ab6a3
    Removing intermediate container 3f75e540219a

    You can see Docker executing each build step in turn and storing the intermediate result until the final image is created. Because we used the tag (-t) option and named our image ‘hello’, we can see it when we list all the docker images:

    $ sudo docker images
    REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED VIRTUAL SIZE
    hello latest 1150949428b2 10 seconds ago 396.4 MB
    mikehadlow/ubuntu-monoxide-mono-devel latest f259e029fcdd 24 hours ago 394.7 MB
    ubuntu 13.10 9f676bd305a4 8 weeks ago 178 MB
    ubuntu saucy 9f676bd305a4 8 weeks ago 178 MB
    ...

    Now let’s run our image. The first time we do this Docker will create a container and run it. Each subsequent run will reuse that container:

    $ sudo docker run hello
    Hello World

    And that’s it.

    Imagine that instead of our little hello.exe, this image contained our web application, or maybe a service in some distributed software. In order to deploy it, we’d simply ask Docker to run it on any server we like; development, test, production, or on many servers in a web farm. This is an incredibly powerful way of doing consistent repeatable deployments.

    To reiterate, I think Docker is a game changer for large server side software. It’s one of the most exciting developments to have emerged this year and definitely worth your time to check out.

      Victory Gtk theme is not new and the initial release was way back in April, 2010. The development was stopped then creator started working again on this theme a while ago. The entire theme is recreated as a vibrant, elegant, bright and flat using minimalistic approach. From day one this theme is targeting Xfce and Lxde desktops but now it does work in Gnome and Cinnamon desktops as well without any issue, and Openbox desktop also supported by this theme. It is available for Gtk 3.18/3.22/2.24 that means you can install it in Ubuntu 17.10/17.04/16.04 and Linux Mint 18, as well as other related Ubuntu derivatives. There is also Victory icon theme available by the same creator which we did share in past and below you can find the commands to install those icons as well. If you find any kind of bug or problem with the theme then report it creator and hopefully it will get fixed in the next update.

      Randa 2015 was about bringing touch to KDE apps and interfaces. At Randa 2016, developers worked on building frameworks that would allow KDE apps to work on a wider range of operating systems, like Windows, MacOS and Android.

      Randa Meetings 2017 will be all about accessibility.

      At KDE, we understand that using an application - be it an email client, a video editor, or even educational games aimed at children - is not always easy. Different conditions and abilities require different ways of interacting with apps. The same app design will not work equally well for somebody with 20/20 vision and for somebody visually impaired. You cannot expect somebody with reduced mobility to be able to nimbly click around your dialogue boxes.

      This year we want to focus on things that have had a tendency to fall by the wayside; on solving the problems that are annoying, even deal-breaking for some, but not for everyone.

      Some people had reported choppy playback and/or a high CPU load when using the 27.4.0 release of the Pale Moon browser – for instance when playing HD videos on Youtube. See these topic posts on the LQ Slackware forum. A bugfix update of Pale Moon was released a few days ago and according to the releasenotes, the new Pale Moon 27.4.1 addresses these issues. I have uploaded fresh packages for palemoon-27.4.1 to my package repository so that you can check that this is true.

    • Unity, Mir and Ubuntu Touch

      When Canonical announced in April that the company, which supports the development of the Ubuntu distribution, would cease work on the Unity desktop environment and its Ubuntu Touch technologies, it created a good deal of confusion. Over the past few months I have encountered many people who are unclear on what this change means, particularly for Ubuntu desktop users and the Ubuntu GNOME project. There are also unanswered questions about the current status of Unity 7, Unity 8, Mir and the mobile version of Ubuntu. In this column I will try to clear up some of the common misunderstandings about these technologies and their futures.

    • Zukitwo and Zukitre Themes Available for Ubuntu/Linux Mint

      Since many of us heard that Ubuntu is making Gnome desktop its default desktop again, many creators got motivation to make eyecandy stuff again for Ubuntu. Zuktiwo and Zukitre themes are not new in the market and quite famous among users who are using Linux from sometime, the initial release of this pack was way back in 2011. These themes give light and grayish look to the desktop, the basic aim of these themes to enhance the look of GTK and Gnome-Shell just like many other great Gtk themes. Both themes works perfectly under all resolutions bigger screens and with smaller screens. These themes supports latest GTK 3.22/3.20/3.18 and Gnome Shell 3.24/3.22/3.18. Zukitre and Zukitwo themes supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments such as Gnome Shell, Gnome Classic, Gnome Fallback, Cinnamon, Mate, XFCE, Budgie, Pantheon, etc.

    • Obsidian Gtk Themes Looks Amazing On Gnome Desktop

      If you are looking for dark themes for your Linux desktop then you are on the right page. Obsidian themes looks great and gives your desktop a dark bluish and greenish flavor. Gtk theme is based on Adwaita-Maia and it has Gnome Shell theme as well, it is currently compatible with Gtk 3.20/3.22/3.24 versions and only works fine in Gnome Desktop, this pack is pretty simple and elegant. If you find any issues with this theme then report it to developer and hopefully it will get fixed in the next update. If you are using other distribution you can directly download theme from its page and install it manually in ~/.themes folder or /usr/share/themes/. You can use Gnome-tweak-tool to change themes.

    • New build server was ordered

      OK, so I got frustrated too many times when waiting for packages that were compiling. My current build machine with its AMD ‘Athlon II X4 640’ CPU and 8 GB of RAM, is now 5 years old and obviously no longer quite fit for the tasks I need it to perform. Compiling Chromium for 64bit Slackware in a virtual machine took more than 24 hours last week (yes, for a single package). Basically, that convinced me to empty my stash of donated funds (thanks to all of you Slackware supporters) and order the most powerful midi tower I could buy for that money. What else is that money for, after all. Well, beer perhaps

    • Learning to love Ansible

      I’ve been convinced about the merits of configuration management for machines for a while now; I remember conversations about producing an appropriate set of recipes to reproduce our haphazard development environment reliably over 4 years ago. That never really got dealt with before I left, and as managing systems hasn’t been part of my day job since then I never got around to doing more than working my way through the Puppet Learning VM. I do, however, continue to run a number of different Linux machines - a few VMs, a hosted dedicated server and a few physical machines at home and my parents’. In particular I have a VM which handles my parents’ email, and I thought that was a good candidate for trying to properly manage. It’s backed up, but it would be nice to be able to redeploy that setup easily if I wanted to move provider, or do hosting for other domains in their own VMs.

      Using wood panels as the principal building material reduced the project’s overall cost and footprint because the wooden beams and wall panels were cut and varnished in a nearby workshop. Prefabricated concrete was used to embed the support beams, which were then clad in wooden panels. In fact, wood covers just about everything in the home, from the walls and flooring to the ceiling and partitions. Sustainable materials such as cellulose wadding and wood fibers were even used to insulate the home.


              VMware vCenter Log Insight Series Part3 - Collecting Logs        
    The most important step in analyzing logs is...collecting logs. In this post I will briefly guide you in how you can collect logs in vCenter Log Insight.
    As previously said, Log Insight features a syslog collector, this means that it can ingests logs from literally anything: ESXi hosts, physical infrastructure, virtual machine guest O.S., application logs, etc.

    While configuring ESXi hosts and vCenter log collection is an automated task that can be easily performed from within Log Insight itself as seen in previous post, other devices must be manually configured in order to send logs over to Log Insight.

    Here's how to collect logs from other sources rather than ESXi hosts and vCenter Server:

    1)Windows operating system:

    vCenter Log Insight provides a native agent to be used on Windows to collect logs. Windows agent can be retrieved from Log Insight Administration -> Agents page. Agent is a small executable that can be installed on any Windows machine you want to retrieve logs from.



    After agent installation has succeeded logs are immediately sent to Log Insight to be collected. Please check Administration -> Agents page to verify that your Windows server has been successfully registered.



    Agent is installed by default in C:\ProgramData\VMware\Log Insight Agent. liagent.conf is the configuration file in which you can configure several parameters related on logs collecting such as what kind of logs to collect and what event severity to collect.
    Windows agent can also be used to collect specific applications logs from software, residing on the same machine on which agent has been installed, such as Microsoft SQL logs, Apache logs, etc.
    This can be done specifying in liagent.conf file the path where to retrieve application specific logs. For further informations regarding app logs collecting have a look at this Log Insight documentation page.

    Agent configuration can also be performed in a centralized way via Log Insight Administration -> Agents page. These settings are server-side and will be applied to every client connected to Log Insight, these settings are more authoritative compared to the ones set on client-side, this means that if same setting exists both on client-side and on server-side, the latter is the one that is valid. Otherwise client and server-side settings are merged to create a resulting configuration.

    2)Linux operating system:

    We will use Rsyslog to send logs from Linux over to Log Insight. Rsyslog can also be used to create a centralized logging server when deploying Log Insight in an hub-spoke architecture.
    Rsyslog installation and configuration is quite simple. On RHEL 6 and later is installed by default, on previous versions and on RHEL flavoured distros you can install it using:

     yum install rsyslog  

    On Debian and similar distros, such as Ubuntu, installation can be performed with:

     apt-get install rsyslog  

    Once installed configure it by editing /etc/rsyslog.conf file. I prefer to use UDP for log transferring even if TCP is also a viable protocol. To enable UDP modules on Rsyslog edit rsyslog.conf by removing comments ("#" at line start) on:

     $ModLoad imudp  
    $UDPServerRun 514

    Add this line at the end of file in order to send logs over to Log Insight:

     *.*  @Log_Insight_IP_Address_or_FQDN:514  

    Save file and restart Rsyslog service. If needed add an exception to Linux firewall in order to open port 514 UDP.

     iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 514 -j ACCEPT  

    Verify that Rsyslog will be automatically started on boot. On RHEL-like distros you can do this with:

     chkconfig rsyslog on  

    3)Physical Devices:

    Physical devices such as switches, routers, storage nodes and servers typically support sending logs to a remote destination. This of course vary depending on device model and manufacturer and the appropriate documentation must be consulted in order to find out how to offload logs to an external syslog.
    This process is usually quite simple and can be done either via a graphical management console either via CLI.

    As a general example here's how to configure an HP 29xx physical switch to send logs over to Log Insight.

    Connect to switch management interface either via serial cable either via SSH. Enable offsite logging with the following command:

     logging <Log_Insight_IP_Address_or_FQDN>  

    That's all. In next post we will get some useful informations by analyzing logs.

              VMware: PowerCLI for vCloud Tenants 101        
    PowerCLI for Tenants is a great way to offer scripting capabilities to your cloud users. It works identically to the "classic" PowerCLI but it offers a limited set of cmdlets specifically designed to provide tenants control over their cloud organizations.

    This is an introductory post regarding PowerCLI for tenants in which I will explore some of the many useful cmdlets that allow users to control a cloud organization through PowerCLI.

    First step is to install PowerCLI for Tenants. At this time version 5.1 release 2 is the latest available and can be downloaded here. If you already have the "classic" vSphere PowerCLI installed on your machine you need to remove it first in order to install the tenants version.

    As usual, when dealing with PowerCLI, official documentation comes in handy.

    In PowerCLI for tenants every user (tenant) connects to a vCloud Director server in order to run cmdlets against an organization the user is entitled to interact with. This means, for example, that different tenants can be connected at the same time to the same vCloud Director server interacting with different organizations.



    Connection to an organization is performed using the following command:

    Connect-CIServer -Server 192.168.243.50 -User User1 -Password MyPassword0! -Org HostileCoding

     Name              User              Org  
    ---- ---- ---
    192.168.243.50 User1 HostileCoding

    where -Server is the vCloud Director server IP or FQDN and -Org is the organization name to connect to.

    To retrieve an organization's details Get-Org cmdlet is used.

    DeployedVMQuota and StoredVMQuota respectively count the maximum number of virtual machines that can be deployed and stored simultaneously by a member of this organization.

    While Get-OrgVdc retrieves details about an organization:

    Quite important are the resources limitation exposed by the previous command: StorageLimitGB, MemoryLimitGB, CpuLimitGhz, NetworkMaxCount, VMMaxCount indicate how many resources an organization is entitled to use from the cloud provider.

    Get-OrgVdc retrieves a great amount of details regarding organizational's datacenter like: adopted allocation model, reservations, limits and resources used.

    To retrieve organization's catalog(s) Get-Catalog cmdlet is used.

    In vCloud Director user roles are extremely important because they grant certain capabilities to specific tenants. As you know vCD has five predefined user roles (excluding sysadmin role which is the global role of the user installing/managing the global vCD environment):

    • Organization Administrator 
    • Catalog Author
    • vApp Author 
    • vApp User 
    • Console Access Only.

    By being in one of these groups a tenant can or cannot perform several tasks. To retrieve to which role, with corresponding permissions, each user has been assigned to the Get-CIRole cmdlet is used:

    Get-CIRole -User User1

     Name              ReadOnly Rights  
    ---- -------- ------
    Organization Administrator False {Organization: Edit Properties, Orga...

    Then to retrieve detailed infos about a specific user:

    Get-CIUser -Name User1

    A vApp is, identically to the ones seen in vSphere, a container for one or more VMs. Here the concept is a little broader since a vApp in vCloud can also contain one or more networks to which the VMs in the vApp are connected to. If you have a look at the previous output several other infos are retrieved like the number of vCPUs, the amount of RAM memory, the power status and both the Storage and Runtime lease expressed in days.



    To retrieve all VMs belonging to a specified vApp we use the Get-CIVM cmdlet. In this example only one VM is contained inside myFirstCloudvApp (yes I know, I selected wrong OS during initial VM creation)!

    Get-CIVM -vApp myFirstCloudvApp

              VMware: Automate OpenStack vApp deployment using PowerCLI        
    For those who wants to try OpenStack on VMware vSphere without struggling with GIT pulls and manual file edit the OpenStack Team at VMware provides the VOVA, (Vsphere Openstack Virtual Appliance) an Ubuntu virtual machine which comes with OpenStack Havana pre-installed and pre-configured to run on vSphere. To be clear this is not the entire OpenStack's stack, this comprises Nova, Glance, Cinder, and Keystone but according to the official community on VMTN there's the possibility to bring in another stack component like Neutron. This one will  require VMware NSX though.

    OpenStack on vSphere requires though some infrastructure configurations in order to work, this is not the simple deploy the ova file and everything works. An initial setup must be performed in order to successfully deploy the VOVA.

    Let's start by linking the official OpenStack on vSphere documentation in which you will find all instructions for a correct deployment as well as the link for downloading the OpenStack virtual appliance.

    As official documentation states we will work with two different clusters: a management cluster where the VOVA vApp will be deployed and one or more OpenStack clusters. These clusters will be managed by OpenStack to deploy instances in. As best practice DRS will be enabled in both clusters and will be set in fully automated mode.

    At least two datastores are also required: one, presented only to ESXi hosts belonging to management cluster, in which VOVA will be deployed and one, or preferably more, presented to all ESXi hosts in the OpenStack clusters that will be used by instances.

    Networking-side some changes must be implemented: a new vSwitch with a private br100 PortGroup will be created on hosts in both OpenStack and management cluster. This PortGroup will be used by all OpenStack instances as well as by VOVA that will have NICs associated to different PortGroups: one on the br100 PortGroup forwarding packets received on that interface towards the outside network and vice-versa while the other on classic VM Network PortGroup to communicate with the rest of the network.

    This is a logical schema giving an idea on how the environment should be configured:



    Since some work is required in order to successfully use OpenStack on vSphere why not to automate its deployment using PowerCLI?

    The following script:

    -Connects to a vCenter Server
    -Creates a Datacenter
    -Creates two clusters: a Management and an OpenStack one
    -Adds ESXi hosts to both clusters
    -Configures ESXi hosts networking creating a vSwitch1 and a br100 PortGroup
    -Deploys the OpenStack virtual appliance in one host belonging to the management cluster
    -Configures OpenStack virtual appliance editing OVF Environment
    -Starts up OpenStack and points user's browser to starting page

    Here's how the final result will look like from vCenter:



    This is the PowerCLI code, as usual you can find it also in my GitHub repository. Automate OpenStack vApp Deployment.ps1



    The code is pretty well commented but some parts requires a further clarification:

     Import-vApp -VMHost $MgmtHosts[0] -Source $SourceFilePath -Datastore $InstallDatastore -DiskStorageFormat $DiskFormat -Force:$true  

    imports a vApp in ova or ovf format to a designated ESXi host and datastore. DiskStorageFormat parameter is used to select how the vApp will be deployed in the datastore (Thin, Thick Lazy or Thick Eager).

    The following code is used to edit OVF environment properties for the vApp since once deployed it needs to be configured in order to work properly.

    These are the properties defined in VOVA:

     <PropertySection>  
    <Property oe:key="vami.DNS.VOVA" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vami.gateway.VOVA" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vami.ip0.VOVA" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vami.netmask0.VOVA" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vm.vmname" oe:value="VOVA"/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.cluster_name" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.datacenter_name" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.datastore_regex" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.host_ip" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.host_port" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.password" oe:value=""/>
    <Property oe:key="vmware.username" oe:value=""/>
    </PropertySection>

    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig = New-Object VMware.Vim.VmConfigSpec
    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig.property = New-Object VMware.Vim.VAppPropertySpec[] (x)
    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig.property[x] = New-Object VMware.Vim.VAppPropertySpec
    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig.property[x].operation = "edit"
    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig.property[x].info = New-Object VMware.Vim.VAppPropertyInfo
    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig.property[x].info.key = "Integer Key"
    $VirtualMachineConfigSpec.vAppConfig.property[x].info.value = "Value"
    $Reconfig = $appVOVA.ExtensionData
    $Configtask = $Reconfig.ReconfigVM_Task($VirtualMachineConfigSpec)

    After the deployment your browser will be pointed to OpenStack console and you should see something similar to this:



    Username is demo while password is vmware.

    To create a new instance go to Instances



    Launch Instance, select availability zone, instance name, flavor i.e. the "size" of the instance, instance boot source and finally the image to deploy. By default VOVA comprises a Debian image ready to be deployed.



    Instance should take a few minutes to start the first time because VOVA will copy Debian image in one OpenStack managed datastore, subsequent deployments will be faster since files are already there.





    Root privileges on deployed instances as well as in VOVA console can be accessed using root as username and vmware as password.

    That's all!!

    Maldita Tesis, de Tiphaine Rivière
    Editorial Grijalbo | Spanish | CBR | 185 págs. | 151 MB

    Una hilarante novela gráfica sobre el mundo universitario a través de la historia de una joven que ve cómo se le complica la vida al dedicarse por completo al estudio durante los interminables y fatigantes años de la tesis. Cuando a los veintisiete años Jeanne Dargan decide dejar su trabajo para dedicarse a la tesis doctoral a tiempo completo, no se imagina el viacrucis que le espera. Con gran entusiasmo se embarca en un proyecto que se irá dilatando más y más hasta llegar a desmoronar su vida. Ignorada por su director de tesis, que es todo un experto en esquivar alumnos; incomprendida por su pareja, sus amigos y su familia, que a cada rato le preguntan cuándo acabará la dichosa tesis; desesperada por secretarias incompetentes y por una burocracia universitaria que parece ideada para complicarle la existencia, Jeanne se tendrá que enfrentar sola a este mundo exigente y superar el calvario de esa tesis que parece no tener fin. Con agudeza y humor, a ratos mordaz, Tiphaine Rivière sorprende con una novela gráfica para todos los públicos que provoca desde la tímida sonrisa a la carcajada incontrolable.

    Hola buenas tardes,

    Estoy tratando de instalar la impresora Dell 1135n en un equipo con el Ubuntu 12.04 x32, lo e intentado de muchas formas, con los drivers del CD de la impresora, imprime pero no reconoce el escáner, en la página de Dell solo aparecen drivers hasta Ubuntu 8.10 y instalando la impresora con los drivers de la base de datos de Ubuntu la instala pero tampoco coge el escáner.

    Alguien podría decirme por favor cómo podría hacer que la impresora y el escáner funcionasen? Nunca tuve antes tantos problemas con una impresora...

    Muchas gracias de antemano

    My first guess is that you dont have enough ram. Its rare to find a windows 2000 system that has over 256 ram. Does the computer have 512ram to install? Did you check the download with MD5? If you didnt check it, it could have downloaded incorrectly. If your in Australia, I will post out both linux mint universal edition and linux mint main. Depending on what hardware you have, take a look at XUBUNTU. (not as good as linux mint), but it works wonders on systems that have 128-256ram.

Nonsense. Hardly usable (try to finish the session, for example:). A bit too much of “chocolate […]
              ÐŸÐµÐ¹ до дна!        

    Операционные системы уже сравнивали и с девушками, и с автомобилями, и с туалетами. А с чем ещё не сравнивали? С напитками, наверное.

    Windows — это алкоголь. Кто подсел, более обходиться не может. Слезть можно, но трудно. А того, кто не подсел и обходится, обзывает адептом. Хотя сам не замечает, что носится со своей бутылкой, как с писанной торбой, рекламируя её не хуже любого адепта.

    Mac OS X — дорогой алкоголь. Такой, который пьют не для того, чтобы опьянеть, а для того, чтобы почувствовать вкус. Но — чего греха таить — не замечают, как переходят границу, и всё-таки пьянеют.

    Linux — чай. С алкоголем ведь как просто: открыл, налил и выпил. А чай надо заварить — целая наука. Зато какой вкусный!

    Linux при работе с командной строкой — чай, приготовленный в самоваре. Его ведь надо ещё уметь разжигать.

    Ubuntu — чай в пакетиках. Тоже надо произвести некоторые манипуляции, чтобы выпить, но их меньше.

    Android — холодный чай. Открыл бутылку, налил и выпил. Но всё равно чай. А если разбираешься в самоварах, можно налить туда и ещё раз заварить.

    ReactOS — самогон.

    Gentoo — чай, приготовленный в самоваре, но таком, который раз в 10 сложнее самогонного аппарата.

    Windows 8 — алкоголь, который сам открывается и сам наливается.

    Symbian — иван-чай. Раньше был известным напитком, всерьёз конкурировавшим с чаем, теперь известен только в узких кругах.

              James Murdoch, "the first Mafia boss in history who didn't know he was running a criminal enterprise"        


    James Murdoch has been hauled back before Britain's Parliament to answer questions about what he knew and to what extent he is culpable in the News of the World/phone hacking scandal. In the BBC clip linked below, MP Tom Watson asks Murdoch if he knows what "omerta" means (Murdoch demurs). Then Murdoch embarks on a "mistakes were made" (well, "it is regrettable that things went wrong") statement that culminates with Watson asking Murdoch if he felt a comparison between News UK and the Mafia was apt. Murdoch disagrees. Watson finishes by noting that Murdoch must be "the first Mafia boss in history who didn't know he was running a criminal enterprise." To which Murdoch replies, "Mr Watson, please."

    It's quite a moment.

    Tom Watson labels James Murdoch 'mafia boss'

              TERKINI: Sambutan Besar-Besaran Kejayaan Rejim Israel Laknatullah Tawan Baitulmaqdis Di Melaka... VIRALKAN Tanda Bantah!!!        




    BANGI, 10 Ramadan 1438H, Isnin – Berselindung di sebalik sambutan ulang tahun penubuhan ASEAN dan upacara keagamaan Kristian, satu sambutan besar-besaran kejayaan rejim Yahudi Israel menawan Baitulmaqdis 50 tahun lalu dan menyokong penubuhan negara Israel akan diadakan Melaka pada 15 Jun hingga 18 Jun ini.

    Majlis itu akan diadakan di Calvary Life Assembly Chinese (CLAC) dengan mendapat kerjasama Jerusalem House Of Prayer For All Nations (JHOPFAN).

    JHOPFAN adalah organisasi yang menyokong usaha Yahudi untuk menggali kawasan di bawah Masjidil Aqsa bagi membina kuil ke tiga Yahudi.

    Mereka mendakwa King Solomon membina kuil pertama Yahudi sebelum dimusnahkan orang Babylonia. Kemudian ketua suku Judah, Zerubbabel, membina semula kuil itu yang jatuh ke tangan kuasa Rom.

    Sambutan di Melaka itu adalah anjuran bersama All Malaysian-Golden Gate Revival Convocation (AMGGRC) yang dilantik oleh Golden Gate Nations; Elim Freedom; Melaka Pastors’ Fellowship; Calvary Life Assembly Chinese; AMGGRC Facilitator Council; dan YHWH’s Asia House Of Prayer For All Nations (YAHOPFAN.

    Laman web AMGGRC mengatakan Malaysia adalah negara yang termasuk di dalam wilayah pintu gerbang timur di Baitulmaqdis.

    Berdasarkan poster yang dimuat naik dalam laman web AMGGRC, dengan jelas terpampang perkataan ‘Jerusalem’s Jubilee’ dan dibawahnya adalah lambang menorah (kaki pelita yang mempunyai tujuh tiang lampu) yang menjadi simbol Yahudi sejak zaman purba serta lambang kebesaran Israel sekarang ini.

    Menurut AMGGRC, 2017 adalah tahun yang bersamaan dengan tahun 5777 dalam kalendar Yahudi, adalah masa yang sangat penting, kerana ia adalah tahun jubli emas (50 tahun) pembentukan ASEAN dan penyatuan semula Jerusalem (Baitulmaqdis).

    Kenyataan AMGGRC itu bertepatan dengan maklumat dalam The Golden Report, bahawa 2017 adalah tahun jubli emas buat Israel yang meraikan kemenangan perang enam hari yang berlaku pada 5 Jun hingga 10 Jun 1967, ke atas Mesir, Jordan dan Syria.

    Kesan perang itu antara lain menyebabkan keluasan Israel bertambah dan peningkatan kekejaman terhadap rakyat Palestin.

    Sambutan di Melaka itu dijangka dihadiri ribuan penganut Kristian serta penyokong Israel dari negara-negara Asia Tenggara, Asia Pasifik dan negara di dalam sagmen Golden Gate.

    Kenapa Malaysia dipilih? AMGGRC memberi alasan:

    “Sesungguhnya Tuhan telah mengumumkan melalui para nabi-Nya takdir Malaysia sebagai ‘negara pemangkin kebangkitan’ bagi Asia Tenggara, Asia Pasifik dan negara di dalam Golden Gate sagmen,” kata AMGGRC.

    Sementara itu, Pastor Afeef Halasah dari Jordan dalam kenyataannya pula menggesa negara di rantau ini membawa delegasi terbesar untuk menghadiri sambutan kali ini di Melaka kerana ia adalah masa yang istimewa.

    In a post on his personal blog, titled “U talking to me?” – quote which may or may not have something to do with Taxi Driver – Mark Shuttleworth expressed his willing to do “something unified and upright, something about which we can be universally proud” in the next Ubuntu release, but he also gave us a hint about the codename which 14.10 will have: Utopic Unicorn.


              Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Landed with New Features, Interface Changes [Overview & Screenshots]        

    For this new Long-Term Support release, major changes have been implemented, not only in Ubuntu, but in its derivatives as well. Trusty will be supported for five years for Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Ubuntu Kylin, while the other flavors using a different desktop environment will be supported as well, if only for three years. These include Xubuntu and Lubuntu.


              MakuluLinux: Awesome Debian-Based Distro Ships with MATE 1.8        

    MakuluLinux Mate Imperium Edition has been released a few hours ago, and being based on Debian Testing, I took it for a test drive. This is a good opportunity to have a look at the latest MATE 1.8, since Ubuntu Trusty only includes the 1.6 version in the repositories, and for the Mint release we’ll probably have to wait for about another month.


              Taking Kubuntu 14.04 for a Spin - What's Up in KDE 4.13?        

    Kubuntu versions usually ship with a pretty standard set up of KDE, and Trusty makes no exception. You will find the clean, default and usual KDE interface, but fear not, for it is highly configurable and you can practically make it look and behave in any way you like it. Kubuntu Trusty will ship in four days with one of the latest and bleeding edge versions of KDE, 4.13.0.

    With Ubuntu 14.04 closing in to the release date, which is set for April 17th, I took Lubuntu for a spin from the daily live ISO image. Lubuntu is the most lightweight distribution in the Ubuntu family (the other one being Xubuntu which uses Xfce), using LXDE (Lightweight X Desktop Environment), as well as a set of applications intended to be low on resources.

              My Trip to openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015        
    I have several good friends from Taiwan including Sakana Max and Joey Lee, an active openSUSE members, and also Franklin Weng and Erick that I met during GNOME.Asia Summit 2015 in Depok Indonesia. All of them make me want to visit Taiwan.


    In the end of July 2015 Joey Lee sent me an email to involve in openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015 that will be held in Taipei on December 2015. Thanks Joey!

     
    Since then I follow the IRC meeting several times, and knows many great openSUSE people from Taiwan, China and Japan. Al Cho was the busiest guy for the Summit, you did a great job! Finally on October 21, I got an email said that my presentation for the summit was accepted. The committee also accepted the proposal from 2 others openSUSE users from Indonesia, Utian and Estu.


    I apply for Travel Support Program (TSP). It is the first time for me and I was really amazed by the application system and off course the team behind openSUSE TSP. On November 23, openSUSE accepted my TSP application. Thanks openSUSE, Izabel and team!



    I prepare for Taiwan visa, book an airline ticket and hotel. The important thing is my presentation. I have an old presentation for GNOME.Asia Summit 2015 in Depok Indonesia, but I need to add several new information considering that the audience are from many region so it would give a clear understanding about the situation.

    I also make some "noise" about the summit in openSUSE Indonesia Facebook Group. Currently we have around 2900 people in the group and they're very active. FYI we sometimes have giveaway for randomly selected people in the group, it is fun and effective openSUSE marketing!

     
    On December 3, I went to Taipei. Utian and Estu went there one day earlier than me, but we will stay in same hotel. My flight was 08.30 Jakarta time and it needs around 6,5 hours flight from Jakarta to Taipei but my flight was transit in Hongkong around 3 hours. Around 20.30 Taipei time I arrived in my hotel in Taipei. By the way the temperature was around 14 centigrade and windy so it was a bit cold for me who just arrived from tropical country with temperature around 30 centigrade.

    On December 4 morning, I visited the SUSE Taiwan office along with Estu and Utian. We met with Al Cho, Joey Lee and other SUSE staffs, they were very welcome :-D

      
    This summit was very special because it was held just several weeks after the release of openSUSE Leap 42.1. The committee made a "Release Party" that held together between openSUSE Taiwan community and Ubuntu Taiwan community. On the night of December 4 I was invited and share the joy with everyone. Great party.


    On December 5, 2015 openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015 was open, and off course there are many DVD and stickers :-D


    Michal Hrusecky, openSUSE Board, give a keynote speech about what's been going on in openSUSE lately.


    And after the break it was my turn. I put my presentation on slideshare in case any of you want to read.

     


    It is a wonderful experience, met with openSUSE users from all over Asia and Europe, discuss about our experience about developing and implementing openSUSE. We have a great community! I really enjoy discuss with everyone. I met personally with Dominic Launberger and Ludwig Nussel from openSUSE release team, thanks to share your knowledge and the chitchat.



    The first day of summit is end up with the dinner. During this occasion I have a great conversation with everyone. Thanks Alex, Sunny, Joey and openSUSE Japan team it was a great conversation.


    On December 6, there are many more talks and workshop. Some of them are in Mandarin, I cannot understand but for sure it was great at least by looking to the presentation :-D  



    Many things we can learn from this summit, we meet with all openSUSE user from all across Asia, we know from the first place how the development process is, and the most important thing is we know each other so we can continue to communicate after the summit. 

    It is an honor for me to attend to this event and hope Indonesia can be the host of the next openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016. See you all next year!

    Over the past several years, mobile devices have greatly influenced user interfaces. That's great for handheld users but leaves those of us who rely on laptops and desktops in the lurch. Windows 8, Ubuntu Unity, and GNOME have all radically changed in ways that leave personal computer users scratching their heads. One user interface completely avoided this controversy: Xfce. This review takes a quick look at Xfce today. Who is this product for? Who should pass it by?
              Xubuntu: The Better Ubuntu than Ubuntu        
    While we regularly discuss Ubuntu, and to a lesser degree Kubuntu, there's also a version of Ubuntu tailor-made for the Xfce desktop environment. As most of you are aware, it's called Xubuntu, and after trying it out for the first time, I have to say that I find that it provides a better and more coherent experience than Ubuntu (let alone Kubuntu).
              Design Your Own Desktop with Xfce 4.4        
    "Xfce is just as customizable as KDE or GNOME, so I set myself a goal: make Xubuntu look like Windows Vista. Though you won't be told how to achieve the exact same end result, this guide provides comprehensive instructions helping you make Xubuntu look the way you want it to. In any case, I would certainly not recommend such a setup for someone new to Xubuntu. Xubuntu is different than Windows; making it look similar is only confusing."

    Oggi due chiacchiere in fatto di stile dopo aver trattato di arte e capelli nei post precedenti! Lei è Meghan Ory, o meglio Ruby/Cappuccetto Rosso nella serie tv americana della ABC Once Upon A Time, o C'era una volta che dir si voglia. Ve la voglio presentare, e vi voglio raccontare anche il suo stile che personalmente adoro. [Attenzione pericolo Spoiler!]

     ENGLISH
     Once Upon A Time - Season 1 Episode 13 Stillhttp://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2itWpu5nzwg/Up2-P74WZ-I/AAAAAAAAAXE/Qo5GQDpUHiQ/s1600/OUAT+Ruby+meghan-ory-on-set-once-upon-a-time-25878593-452-640.jpg
    Ruby Lucas è uno dei tanti personaggi delle fiabe imprigionati a Storybrooke (Maine) dal sortilegio della Regina Cattiva, dimentica di tutto ciò concernente il suo passato da Cappuccetto. Aiuta la nonna (proprio Quella nonna che secondo la fiaba originale rischiava di essere mangiata dal lupo) a gestire il bed&breakfast di sua proprietà, immedesimandosi perfettamente nel clichè della camerierina osè.

    Quindi all'inizio della serie Ruby veniva presentata a mio avviso un po' troppo come la meretrice di turno: divisa da lavoro super sexy, gambe al vento, super trucco da vamp. In queste prime puntate non mi aveva colpito positivamente, sia dal punto di vista del personaggio sia dello stile, e per me poteva anche tornarsene a casina sua tra i lupi (perchè in realtà la dolce e indifesa Cappuccetto è una lupa mannara!)

    Ma verso la fine della prima stagione ecco che il miracolo si compie! Ruby ha una crisi di identità che la porta ad allontanarsi dalla nonna,http://38.media.tumblr.com/f5c36be9f08b020fc150d36e7dac31a0/tumblr_mjzf43j8DB1r8i97go4_250.gif
    ma dopo neanche una notte fuori casa capisce di aver sbagliato (merito delle bollette Enel? Mah chi lo sa!) e da meretrice adolescente ribelle in cerca di una meta diventa una ragazza pur sempre ribelle, ma tenace e assennata. Manco a dirlo anche il suo stile cambia, anche se non drasticamente. Da pinup provocante a rockettara incallita. Devo confessare di essere totalmente di parte: la adoro!
    Meghan Ory as Red Riding Hood in Once upon a time.  i love the color. hair ideas for Halloween!!!
    Sin dalle prime puntate il rosso è il suo colore (la scoperta dell'acqua calda). Il red and black il suo passe partout. Via libera a camicie tartan, camicie di jeans e giacche di pelle. Assolutamente pantaloni, rigorosamente di pelle, oppure jeans strappati e non, corti e lunghi. Anche l'accoppiata tee+gilet+guanti a mezze dita funziona alla grande su di lei.
    Red's on the trail...
    Meghan Ory as Ruby #OUAT
    Ma Ruby ha anche un animo bohoo-chic che me la fa piacere ancora di più: sì a orecchini pendenti, camicette floreali vaporose, pizzo e gioielli statement. Adoro alla follia anche la Ruby in versione Cappuccetto rosso dei flashback nella terra delle fiabe: corsetto, camicia a sbuffo e mantello rosso. Ah, e cosa di non minore importanza, credo sia l'unica di tutte le protagoniste delle fiabe che non se ne gironzola per le lande incantate con tutto il davanzale in bella mostra. Non sono mai riuscita a capire come facessero, a partire dalla Regina cattiva per finire con Belle, a sgozzare mostri, lanciare incantesimi e combattere con tutte le grazie straripanti da un corsetto super aderente senza prendere neanche un raffreddore o senza perdere niente per la strada!

    Anyway... Altra cosa che adoro di Ruby sono i capelli (sorvolando sul fatto che i suoi sono castano scuro e stanno alla perfezione con i suoi fantastici occhi azzurri). Quando è Ruby li tiene generalmente lisci e sciolti (quando era ancora nella sua fase pinup aveva delle extension rosse), oppure leggermente mossi con un berretto carino (basco o panama non importa) molto da hipster, mentre quando è il suo alter-ego Cappuccetto ha capelli super boccolosi, non leziosi ma scompigliati e perfettamente abbinati a delle trecce a corona meravigliose. Ne vado matta!

              Liberación social        
    Para acabar con la pobreza y con los daños ambientales no necesitamos resolver ningún problema técnico o tecnológico. Menos aun necesitamos una tecnocracia economicista pretendidamente científica. La solución a estos problemas depende sobre todo de opciones políticas. La política decide cómo se redistribuyen los frutos de la producción: qué parte merece el capital en forma de beneficios, qué parte merece el trabajo, cuál la administración del estado y a qué parte tiene derecho cualquiera por la mera condición de ciudadano partícipe de un planeta común. La política también decide qué forma de explotar los recursos es aceptable y qué precauciones tomamos para preservar el entorno del que dependemos. Y desde la política puede acabarse con cualquier alternativa económica minoritaria con sólo aprobar un decreto que la prohíba o que la dificulte lo suficiente.

    Si bien el crecimiento económico depende de una multitud de factores a menudo incontrolables, en cambio sí es controlable la determinación de los sacrificios que estamos dispuestos a realizar para buscar ese crecimiento y la manera de distribuirlos. Hoy por hoy la capacidad productiva rebasa con mucho lo necesario para la subsistencia de todos, y sólo la gestión política explica que siga habiendo gente que vive en la miseria o que muere de hambre. Del mismo modo, la política decide nuestro grado de alienación, nuestro grado de explotación como recurso natural y qué parte puede ser tiempo propio, es decir, en qué medida podemos ser libres. Sin tiempo no somos nada. Decir tiempo libre es decir grado de libertad.

    ¿Y quién controla la política? A diario podemos ver cómo la democracia representativa acaba siendo una perversión de la democracia y transcurre ajena a nosotros, fácilmente manipulable por los caciques de turno y sin darnos la oportunidad de votar en ningún asunto concreto. Pero más allá de esto podemos preguntarnos qué políticas concretas nos conviene apoyar. De no hacerlo podría ocurrir que nos libráramos de los políticos comerciales pero para apoyar directamente las mismas políticas al servicio de quienes dominan los mercados y su propaganda.

    La política tradicional nos ha vendido la oposición teórica entre estado y sector privado como las opciones entre las que debemos elegir, (y últimamente sólo distintas maneras de gestionar y promover el neoliberalismo). Sin embargo, ambas opciones han demostrado ser dos formas de perder la libertad a manos de poderes abusivos, (estado y corporaciones; burócratas y oligarcas), o si se prefiere, a manos de lógicas inhumanas: enormes burocracias (estatales o privadas) alejadas de las verdaderas necesidades y de las circunstancias de cada persona, convertida en mero input de una estadística. Ambas opciones nos han puesto al servicio de un productivismo alienante y contaminante.

    Es falso que el comunismo dirigido desde el estado suponga vida colectiva, porque no se realiza tal vivencia si no surge de la adhesión voluntaria, si se cercena la iniciativa individual. Una verdadera vida colectiva sólo es tal si surge de la libre adhesión a la misma. La realización personal en esa vida colectiva, (la satisfacción de nuestro ser social), no se puede dar sin una participación efectiva en sus decisiones, o sin la posibilidad de una reflexión ética individual o sin libertad de expresión.

    Y es falso que el individualismo economicista de la sociedad de mercado suponga una verdadera individualidad, porque el sujeto no es libre de hacia donde orientar su actividad ni en el trabajo, determinado por la rentabilidad, ni en un tiempo libre del que no dispone ante el chantaje de la exclusión social y la consiguiente obligación de realizar largas jornadas laborales. Por no hablar del despotismo privado al que a menudo da lugar la desprotección de los menos fuertes, (tanto en el ámbito de la empresa como en el doméstico). La reflexión individual libre no es posible sin el amparo de una colectividad que la permita, que proteja la suficiencia económica, el tiempo libre y las posibilidades de información y de expresión de cada individuo.

    Somos seres sociales por naturaleza y no podemos subsistir al margen de la sociedad con cuya cooperación obtenemos los recursos para la vida. En consecuencia, el grado de libertad que tengamos -el tiempo libre y la libertad de conciencia- será el que la sociedad haya decidido otorgarnos a cada uno. Sin una cobertura social del tiempo libre y de la subsistencia no hay libertad, no hay reflexión propia y no hay inteligencia colectiva: no hay democracia.

    -

    En la actualidad el amparo social de esa suficiencia individual se condiciona a que la economía siga creciendo. Se considera inflexible la apuesta por el crecimiento económico y se supedita al mismo todo lo demás, con el añadido de que cuando el crecimiento se da, nunca es suficiente: se debe hacer un esfuerzo suplementario para desbancar a los rivales. (En épocas de crecimiento la derecha ya pedía las mismas reformas que ahora está aplicando con la crisis como excusa). Nunca es momento para las personas. El equilibrio ecológico, la riqueza colectiva de los ciudadanos y su tiempo libre son consumidos por un sistema legal orientado hacia ese crecimiento. No importa si con la capacidad productiva actual se podría alimentar y alojar a toda la población -como demuestran los excesos de oferta- sin necesidad de mayor crecimiento del PIB o incuso pudiendo decrecer ese término medio económico. El ordenamiento jurídico vigente en la mayoría de los estados excluye un amparo suficiente de la vida libre, y de ese modo determina que si no te entregas completamente en favor del crecimiento, caerás en la pobreza. Crecer es así un mandato inexcusable e incuestionable. Y ese mismo miedo a la pobreza lleva a no tener contemplaciones con el medio ambiente. Todo queda convertido en mero medio para el crecimiento. El ser humano deja de ser la finalidad. Su seguridad y su plenitud vital no son lo que se busca. Su vida sirve a una función programada. Se es un medio o se es un coste del que hay que deshacerse.

    Pero ¿cómo se concreta esa coacción en las leyes? Será necesario conocer lo que debemos cambiar. ¿Cómo se manifiesta la prioridad del crecimiento competitivo en la legislación? La cuestión se puede resumir en la observación de qué aspectos se consideran rígidos y cuáles flexibles. Por ejemplo: la suficiencia económica de todos se condiciona a que un posible crecimiento aporte nuevos excedentes, se considera algo flexible, sin que la tributación y su progresividad se vinculen a esa suficiencia en todo momento. Del mismo modo, el equilibrio natural del que dependemos se valora como una aspiración, no como un requisito previo de toda actividad económica.

    Poner al ser humano y su libertad en el centro del sistema legal pasaría por cambiar lo que se considera permanente y lo que debe ser flexible: las prestaciones básicas como la subsistencia, el alojamiento independiente, la educación, la atención sanitaria y el acceso a la información y el conocimiento deben ser derechos inviolables. Sin embargo una aportación fiscal progresiva ha de ser flexible y estar supeditada a lo necesario en cada momento para cubrir esos derechos sociales.

    ¿Y qué hay del trabajo necesario para la producción, esa clave social determinante por vincularse a la legitimidad para tener derecho a la suficiencia económica? Actualmente se flexibilizan las condiciones laborales para una mayor entrega productivista y se considera rígido (o incluso se aumenta) el número de horas de trabajo que cada uno debe aportar para ganar lo suficiente o para no ser despedido. Esto impide que pueda considerarse legítimo mantener a quienes no tienen nada mientras otros deben trabajar duramente. Se exige tener empleo pero no se reparte el mismo. Así el miedo a la exclusión facilita la servidumbre y la servidumbre facilita el desamparo de los excluidos.

    La solución pasaría una vez más por permutar lo que se considera flexible y lo que ha de ser estable: el acceso al empleo debe mantenerse estable flexibilizando el reparto del tiempo de trabajo como forma de ir absorbiendo el empleo excedentario, (ya sea por los incrementos de productividad o a causa del decrecimiento). Pero la cobertura de lo básico para todos puede y debe ser estable no sólo a través del empleo sino en forma de salario social complementario, mientras que la acumulación de riqueza debería quedar flexiblemente condicionada al excedente posible en cada momento una vez cubierto lo anterior. No hacer esto es lo que impide que el progreso humano discurra por caminos distintos de la mera expansión material, condenándonos de paso al agotamiento de los recursos y de los sumideros naturales.

    A menudo se cree que somos demasiadas personas en el planeta como para subsistir todas dignamente. Pero lo que está impidiendo la subsistencia de gran parte de la humanidad desde hace muchos años no es la escasez de los recursos necesarios para esto sino el modelo económico políticamente establecido, y concretamente la apuesta inflexible por el crecimiento económico, la apuesta por la acumulación en detrimento del tiempo libre. Ese desprecio de la maduración autónoma en tiempo libre en favor del trabajo remunerado, ese desprecio de las posibilidades de desarrollo personal en favor del consumo para la ostentación, o el descuido de uno mismo a causa de un miedo al futuro que lleva a la acumulación inacabable, es lo que está acaparando los recursos necesarios para el desarrollo económico de quienes sí lo necesitan. Y especialmente el explícito deseo de competir en acumulación por parte de quienes ya se cuentan en el 1% (o en el 10%) de la población más rica pero acaparan una proporción aberrante de la riqueza mundial.

    Decir que no hay o que no habrá suficiente para cubrir las necesidades básicas de todos los que habitamos el planeta es sobre todo una irresponsabilidad. Mientras no se haya comprobado el efecto de compartir hasta el último céntimo y hasta el último centímetro de la tierra cultivada, esa afirmación invita a la condescendencia con el ecofascismo que lleva muchos años tolerando la innecesaria muerte por inanición de millones de personas. Sí, vivimos en plena época del ecofascismo, una disputa excluyente por los recursos del planeta. No es algo cuya llegada debamos temer sino algo de lo que tenemos la obligación de librarnos. El “progreso moral” del último siglo sólo ha pasado de creer que matar puede ser aceptable, (en nombre de la expansión territorial de un estado), a creer que dejar morir es aceptable, (en nombre de la competitividad y de la expansión económica).

    El crecimiento económico es cíclico, pero las necesidades de una vida digna y libre no lo son. Por ello la política se debe adaptar a este principio de la realidad económica de modo que el crecimiento sea una posibilidad, no una condición para la suficiencia de todos ni un mandato prioritario, y de modo que la cobertura universal de aquellas necesidades sí sea un mandato y no una mera posibilidad. La fiscalidad puede y debe adaptarse a esto, y los servicios públicos pueden y deben cubrir la insuficiencia del mercado. En lugar de supeditar la distribución universal de lo básico a la posibilidad del crecimiento económico, se debería condicionar la cuantía de los beneficios a la cobertura de lo básico para la vida de todos.

    -

    ¿Acaso eso impediría la iniciativa individual? ¿No saldría más bien fortalecida al liberarnos de la preocupación por las necesidades más elementales? La realidad demuestra que aun asegurada la cobertura de necesidades básicas, nadie se conforma con esto. La humanidad seguirá activa y motivada por su ambición económica, (quizá demasiado, pues quien gana mucho suele continuar trabajando mucho), y en tiempo libre, por sus inquietudes éticas y culturales. Pero el fantasma del conformismo parece asustar demasiado a los dogmáticos de la ortodoxia manipuladora, a los fundamentalistas de los incentivos, a los expertos en controlar el clima social mediante la represión económica, los que se arrogan la potestad de elegir a qué deben dedicar sus energías el resto de seres humanos y hasta qué punto.

    Así como las condiciones ambientales son las que determinan que la vida prospere, se estanque o tienda a extinguirse en un ecosistema, el clima social es lo que favorece o perjudica el desarrollo pleno de nuestra naturaleza, el crecimiento natural de cada uno, su madurez o el florecimiento de sus potencialidades. La política neoliberal consiste en controlar el clima social en favor de la acumulación y en detrimento de una autorrealización libremente orientada, algo muy complaciente con quienes ya son privilegiados: en un entorno de cicatería en el que no se redistribuye lo suficiente, muchas personas no tendrán más opción que aceptar un sueldo miserable y una entrega servil. Y todo el mundo sentirá esa espada de Damocles de la miseria posible como incentivo para competir en acumulación más de lo que en otras circunstancias habría deseado.

    A pesar de esto algunos lo llamarán libertad porque no se trata de una coacción explícita sino que esta se lleva a cabo a través del control político del clima social: en el momento de la pregunta es uno el que debe responder si “decide” morirse de hambre o si acepta la precariedad. (O quizá lo llaman libertad porque entre tanto los beneficios fluyen “libremente” a los paraísos fiscales). Hoy día se confunde la libertad con el poder privado y con el desamparo social que lo hace posible. El abuso y la amenaza de exclusión son la norma, y la mayoría que no triunfa queda al margen de esta extraña idea de libertad, basada en el miedo y en la uniformidad de la ambición que debe tener todo el mundo, (sólo económica). Por no hablar de las situaciones de dependencia, que quedan al albur de cómo le vaya a cada familia. No hay garantías para el adecuado desarrollo de los niños, o para un envejecimiento tranquilo, o para los momentos de enfermedad. El cuidado de la vida no tiene valor para el mercado salvo que esa vida pertenezca a la minoría con dinero acumulado.

    Y la extensión de este proceso social al aprovechamiento de los recursos naturales lleva a la biosfera esa misma lógica desequilibradora que no tiene en cuenta el sostenimiento a largo plazo de las condiciones de las que depende la vida. Por contra, el equilibrio de la biosfera en la forma en que nos ha dado la vida también debería considerarse una necesidad básica y condicionar de antemano cualquier posibilidad económica. Hacer lo contrario, tomar la biosfera como la parte flexible de la ecuación, implica romper el principio esencial de la misma: un equilibrio conjunto basado en la redistribución de excedentes reciclables. Tanto la estabilidad del medio ambiente como la estabilidad social dependen de que cada uno de esos conjuntos formen un sistema dinámico que renueve su equilibrio reincluyendo siempre sus partes e impidiendo hegemonías. Sólo dentro del flujo que permita ese marco podremos ser libres. Seremos tan libres como robusta sea la garantía de no exclusión en un sistema participativo.

    -

    Somos seres surgidos de la naturaleza, y esto incluye nuestra naturaleza social y cultural: la capacidad de cooperar y de protegernos mutuamente, y la capacidad de desarrollar nuestra imaginación. Estas capacidades son las que nos han permitido prevalecer sobre el resto de las especies. La predisposición social y cultural es nuestra singularidad en la existencia, y el disfrute en esos ámbitos dará la medida de nuestra plenitud natural. Es así como debemos vernos antes que como instrumentos de un proceso laboral, (ya sea como empleados o como empresarios).

    La concreción práctica de esto sería una organización social que pusiera la protección de la vida, la integración social sin imposiciones y la participación en la cultura por encima de la expansión material, es decir, trabajar lo menos posible en las tareas meramente económicas, aplicando la misma lógica de suficiencia que en el caso de las tareas domésticas, y que en la parte liberada de nuestra actual jornada laboral busquemos madurar un desarrollo personal y social determinado en uno mismo, voluntario, libremente elegido. Si realmente estamos trabajando en favor del progreso de la sociedad, las condiciones laborales deberían mejorar y el número de horas de trabajo debería disminuir en favor de una vida más liberada de ataduras económicas y que se determinara más en uno mismo, en su libre conciencia y en su tiempo libre.

    Quizá muchas personas no echan en falta una verdadera libertad individual porque casi nadie la ha tenido: se supone que los objetivos de la actividad principal han de venir determinados por la oferta laboral o, lo que es lo mismo, por los nichos de mercado (en caso de trabajar por cuenta propia). Se nos inculca que debemos intentar “llegar lejos” sólo en el mundo laboral. Así uno no se plantea como posible y deseable que la orientación de su actividad psíquica y física pueda determinarse en su propia conciencia, a partir de su conocimiento y de su reflexión ética, -eso “no te lleva a ningún lado”, así “no llegarás a nada”-; y sólo nos concedemos a nosotros mismos una exigua parte de nuestro tiempo en la que, después de trabajo, tareas domésticas y trámites, a menudo sólo queda tiempo para descansar y buscar un poco de compañía. No se valora lo que no se conoce, y así es difícil reclamarlo.

    Por ello, para alcanzar un cambio económico liberador será determinante un cambio de valores, un cambio cultural, pues la “demanda” político-económica depende de los “sueños” que nos planteamos como deseables y que se definen en la cultura compartida. Pasado un nivel de subsistencia no hay un determinismo economicista en la conducta sino más bien una fuerte presión social hacia las quimeras comúnmente aceptadas. (Por algo las empresas invierten tanto en marketing). Si se sigue persiguiendo el crecimiento económico y la riqueza material por encima del tiempo libre y de sus posibilidades no es porque sea necesario ni por un determinismo natural sino porque esa rémora de un pasado pobre ha quedado como único “sueño” compartido y perseguido por todos. Pero es obvio que el crecimiento económico no nos conduce a un mundo mejor y ni siquiera nos hace felices.

    El reto es hacer que los nuevos “sueños” compartidos sean ideales acertados para posibilitar una vida plena, y esto no puede tener lugar sin una mayor cercanía cultural a la realidad. El pretendido realismo obsesivo de la competición económica en un entorno de desconfianza mutua, junto a un ocio comercial y evasivo, nos ciegan a la realidad ecológica y humana que se pierde con la lucha. Se da por hecho que hay que ganarse un puesto en la selección del más apto, forzando la interpretación de que somos animales asociales y presas naturales de nosotros mismos, y con este adoctrinamiento (ajeno a nuestra verdadera naturaleza y a sus posibilidades) se acepta la exclusión de los menos aptos y el propio riesgo de caer en ella. Tenemos pendiente una liberación social que nos proporcione mayores posibilidades de vivir plenamente.

    Esto pasaría por concedernos más tiempo libre, disponer de acceso abierto al conocimiento, y valorar por encima del ocio comercial, el disfrute mutuo, el  asociacionismo, el cultivo de pasiones personales y la reflexión independiente, cosas que requieren dedicación, hábito, artesanía a diferencia del mero consumo de “fascinación”. Se trataría de marginar el placer dependiente y esclavizante de consumir en favor de un disfrute autónomo del hacer. Hay que tener en cuenta que la capacitación personal libremente orientada es fuente de pasión y de amor a la vida. Una capacitación motivada por su valor intrínseco a nuestros ojos, una capacitación satisfactoria por sí misma es parte esencial de la liberación.

    Traducido a opciones políticas, hoy por hoy nos convendría apostar por el reparto del trabajo, la redistribución de la riqueza, la democracia real, la liberación del conocimiento retenido mediante patentes abusivas, y el acrecentamiento de los bienes comunes como forma social de obtener la seguridad económica, (Renta Básica, servicios públicos, tierras comunales, cooperativismo, naturaleza protegida); todo ello en detrimento de la acumulación especulativa y del látigo competitivo que, aparentando estimular el avance, en realidad sólo nos obliga a huir, empezando por huir de la realidad y de nosotros mismos.

    Canonical have been talking about wanted to target tablets for a few years now, so this was only a matter of time. Personally, the only Ubuntu project that I'm interested in is Ubuntu TV - but I've not heard anything since the early alpha announcements
              Dual Boot?        
    Trying Ubuntu on my phone would be really nice. But I wonder whether they'll be able to prepare a "dual boot" option with Android. I still miss the HD2 days, where you could "triple boot" Windows, Android, Ubuntu (and even Meego, Win 95, Windows 7, recently Win RT, and several more). On the other hand, 8GB flash on many devices may not be enough to achieve this.
              Re:        
    I don't use Linux as my desktop and prefer Android for the mobile, but when it comes to this Ubuntu tablet thing, my response is: "Do want do want do want" Hope it ships on actual hardware (aka not something you will have to install youself by wiping a Nexus 7/10)
              RE: Comment by Laurence        
    Exactly! I do not want to hamper the excitement for Ubuntu everywhere but to me it is another vaporware until I see it performing. It is really hard to get a grasp on what it can or can not do. I have been burned many times by Nokia with nice teasers of new platforms (meego, maemo, symbian) to have any excitement anymore. Here is hoping they pull it off.
              RE[2]: Comment by Laurence        
    Exactly what? And are we still talking about Ubuntu TV? Unless I'm missing your point, your comment doesn't seem to follow on from mine.
              RE[2]: Comment by Laurence        
    Thanks for that, I've not heard of that OS before. Can that be installed on HTPCs like Ubuntu TV or pretty much any OS + XBMC? Or is it just designed to be shipped with TVs like an embedded OS?Edited 2013-02-19 18:32 UTC
              RE: Comment by shmerl        
    I tested Plasma Active a few days ago, and it can't be far ahead of Ubuntu. It's a nice concept, but not ready for any use yet. I'll check Ubuntu on Friday and report back.
              I don't trust Canonical        
    I don't see a single line of code supporting their claims. I think they are on crack and highly delusional. Their so called "operating system" is just a linux distro like many others. They used linux and thrown upstart and Unity on top. I don't see big software development coming from them. Many did better than them. Linux Mint made a nicer linux distro with a far smaller team and Debian added more improvements to Linux than Canonical. If it weren't for debian, there would be no Ubuntu. I also can claim that I developed a super cool operating system in the secret and that it will run on phones and tablets and that the phone will transform in a desktop when coupling it with a tv. Some guys already ported Ubuntu on phones and tablets. Just watch these two videos, some guys are running Ubuntu on sub 100$ chinese tablets: If Canonical won't do much better than those guys, will just port regular desktop Ubuntu to mobile devices and won't come up with a proper tablet/phone OS, they will fail miserably. And there's the lack of proper mobile apps. Regular desktop linux apps and games do suck on their own merit, but using them on a tablet or phone will suck even more.
              RE: Leery but hopeful        
    There is some discussion amongst the qt quick using operating systems to standardize their api's. That would make it a lot easier to target plasma active, ubuntu and Blackberry. Qt 5 is also being developed as a platform for android and ios, so there is hope for a unified development platform. However, other cross platform toolkits end up just sucking on every platform. So be careful what you wish for.
              RE[2]: Leery but hopeful        
    They should aim to speak the same language, just different dialects. QML, Qt, and everything that comes with that can be the bedrock of all emerging platforms (Sailfish, Ubuntu OS, BB10, Plasma Ative, etc) and every OS just differentiate an API on top of that. You wouldn't get write once run anywhere but you'd get a very compelling cross platform developer story. I'd certainly buy into it. If the various groups can coordinate this and pull it off I'll be impressed and Linux will be a lot better off for it.
              RE: Comment by shmerl        
    Plasma Active has nowhere near the polish that Ubuntu OS seems to have. And after using KDE, I don't really have faith they'll get there. I don't buy into their premise of Activities. I think they're a stupid idea. Just listen to anyone explaining them. From what I've seen of Plasma Active it's (in my opinion) slow, ugly, and unpolished. Its weird and amateurish. There's no vision here.

    His words are verifiable. Ubuntu for tablets (the one which runs on Nexus 7) is not the same as Ubuntu Phone underneath.

    Ubuntu barely has any touch optimized applications at all. I'm not sure what you call polish in this case.

    More and more of them are (and they are used in PA). KDE are working on making more of them. May be Ubuntu has touch optimized ones prepared too, but they aren't available yet, as their development is closed, unlike KDE's so you never know what they are doing.Edited 2013-02-19 19:52 UTC

    Yeah, Ubuntu is working in the same also, so?

    The point is, they aren't shared. Unity is based on GTK, Ubuntu Phone is based on Qt.

    There have been demonstrations of the OS and the OS itself looks a lot more polished in the videos than what Plasma Active offers. Seriously. I have infinitely more faith in Ubuntu developers vs KDE developers.

    There ere 3 mobile software with the same toolkit (Qt), Ubuntu, Sailfish and Plasma Active, guess witch one is the slower one, the one that use more battery and the one that has the uglier user interface and the one giving poor results: Plasma Active, the one developed in the open and buzzing "architecture", go figure.Edited 2013-02-19 20:22 UTC

    From what I understand. Qt5 should help with KDE's framework problems quite a bit. The best parts of the KDE framework that can be made cross-platform are being made part of future Qt 5.x releases. Most of the Linux/*Nix specific aspects of KDE will be made part of Plasma. I think part of the plan is to let KDE and Qt share more code which will improve all software that uses Qt. What the average user currently thinks of as KDE (the desktop and apps) is going to become a set of optional supra-modules above Qt that can be used to create apps with interfaces for numerous form factors that do not need any other supporting software. If I understand the KDE community's plan, then most of KDE's supra-Qt technology should also support most of the platforms that Qt supports in the future. The Qt mobile development community (Jolla/Sailfish, KDE, Ubuntu) is already looking to harmonize as many of their various supra-Qt API's as possible in order to maximize ease of development. Hopefully the Qt5 community will be able to take the best of each community's approach to software development and make it available to all Qt developers.
              RE[13]: Comment by shmerl        
    I think this is unfair given that neither of them are out yet, and your own pet platform, Plasma Active has more than its fair share of show stopping deficiencies. If by the time Ubuntu's Phone and Tablet OS drop this isn't true, then you'll have a fair criticism.
              RE: I don't trust Canonical        
    You've got it wrong, by comparing Canonical/Ubuntu and Linux Mint. Linux Mint as I see it is just a Linux desktop for linux users who want Linux desktops, with no vision of having to provide smartphones or tablet experience. While Canonical develops Unity in the hope that with _that_ interface they can provide a cross-device UX in accordance to their company vision(go figure what this vision is and compare that to the content of your post.) Canonical's goal I think is not to go to top1 as a contributor to the Linux kernel. So your post like any other who bash Canonical is highly unfounded and based on poor discernment of reality.

    You said "the only Ubuntu project that I'm interested in is Ubuntu TV" He said exactly to your lack of excitement about this announcement and then gave statements about why he isn't excited about the announcement so his response mostly does flow within the conversation. As for Ubuntu TV, its main appeal just seems to be as an alternative to MythTV as a DVR (which TiVo may have patents on). With over the top stuff there are already a whole bunch of other decent platforms available or planned with Roku, Google/Apple TV, Ouya, Wii U, Boxee, Raspberry Pi running XBMC, Pocket TV, numerous smart TV's, and PS4 and Xbox 720 on the way etc.
              RE[2]: I don't trust Canonical        
    Srsly? Is Unity the best software that came out from this big computing company? Are you serious? That's the best thing they did in 8+ years? Why can't I compare Ubuntu with Mint? Mint team did Cinnamon desktop which isn't worse than Unity. Android is an operating system, WebOS was an operating system, Maemo was an operating system, Ubuntu is yet another Linux distro. Adding a new shell to Gnome desktop and throwing it on top on Debian Linux doesn't make a new revolutionary OS. And pushing that on tablet and phones doesn't revolutionize the mobile world. It isn't even Canonical's merit that Ubuntu can be compiled on ARM architecture and ran on tablets, that's due to Linaro. Feel free to mod my comment down as much as you like.

    “Selama enam bulan saya tak dapat apa-apa tawaran sehingga terpaksa menggunakan duit simpanan untuk menampung perbelanjaan. Jujur saya katakan disebabkan duit simpanan pun nak habis, saya nekad untuk pulang ke Singapura dan bekerja di sana sahaja”
    “Kini saya sedang bekerja di sebuah syarikat swasta sebagai pegawai pemasaran sejak awal bulan Julai lalu. Saya tak letakkan masa berapa lama akan berehat tapi Insya-Allah saya akan kembali dalam dunia seni,” jelasnya kepada m Star Onlinemengenai perkara itu.
    Sebelum ini, menerusi akaun Instagram, Atikah ada memuat naik status seolah memberi gambaran bahawa dirinya sudah penat menghambakan diri didalam dunia seni. Walaupun sukar namun beliau terpaksa melupakan kerjayanya seketika dan mencari semula semangatnya yang hilang.

    Kalau masih ingat pernah suatu ketika, Atikah dipalit kontroversi hebat apabila gambar bogel mirip wajahnya bersama dua lagi pelakon lelaki tersebar dengan meluas. Tidak pasti pula jika hal itu membuatkan Atikah digam dari produksi tempatan hingga tidak mendapat tawaran

    Tindakan pelakon dan penyanyi Aliff Aziz memohon maaf terhadap perlakuannya baru baru ini mendapat pelbagai reaksi berbaur daripada warga laman sosial namun dalam masa yang sama, Aliff turut hairan apabila Afifah mendiamkan diri selain tidak muncul di set penggambaran drama.

    “Saya minta maaf kepada pihak produksi yang terjejas dengan isu ini. Selepas saya keluar dari lokap keesokan harinya (Sabtu) saya terus ke lokasi penggambaran kerana tak mahu menyusahkan mereka”
    “Saya harap sangat Afifah bersikap profesional dan habiskan penggambaran ini, kasihan pada pihak produksi yang akan menanggung kerugian,” katanya kepada mStar Online.
    Sementara itu dalam perkembangan lain, akaun Twitter Aliff Aziz turut digodam. Akibatnya empunya nombor telefon yang dipamerkan menerima ribuan panggilan yang tidak dikenali.
    “Itu bukan status yang saya muat naik, Twitter saya sudah lama tidak aktif kerana terlupa kata laluan. Malah sejak isu ini timbul ada pihak yang menggodam akaun saya dan muat naik kenyataan buruk serta menyertakan nombor telefon yang kononnya kepunyaan saya,” jelasnya.

    Ada orang suka melihat gambar atau video mesra yang dipamerkan selebriti kesayangan mereka, tetapi ada juga yang tidak senang dengan perkara itu. Seperti Siti Sarah pula, beliau tidak menyangka perkongsiannya di laman sosial mengundang rasa tidak puas hati.

    “Secara jujur, saya tidak sangka video yang dimuat naik mendapat perhatian ramai kerana sebelum ini kami sering berkongsi gambar berdua. Kalau diikutkan, mereka yang mengenali kami sudah maklum dengan karakter itu”
    “Bagi saya, tiada kena mengena dengan masalah rumah tangga. Kalau ada pun kami ada cara untuk mengatasi permasalahan. Kebahagiaan bukan boleh direka, namun sekiranya perkongsian saya dapat menggembirakan peminat”
    Jelasnya lagi, perkongsian rumah tangganya yang bahagia bukanlah dibuat untuk menutup keretakan hubungan beliau dan suami tetapi sekadar berkongsikan kepada peminat. Malah jika ada masalah sekalipun, Sarah lebih selesa tidak menjaja cerita di laman sosial.

    “Kami berpegang pada prinsip untuk tidak membawa sebarang masalah di sosial media kerana ia tidak seharusnya dikongsikan. Sebenarnya artis dan orang biasa tidak jauh berbeza dan itu yang saya tekankan di media sosial,” jelasnya kepada Berita Harian Online.

              Pengaruh Kawan Punca Adam Shahz, Fatin Afeefa Cerai Talak Satu        
    Enggan mengeruhkan keadaan, pelakon Adam Shahz menjelaskan bahawa punca penceraian di antara dirinya dan isteri iaitu Fatin Afeefa adalah kerana pergaulan rakan rakan selain menafikan kehadiran orang ketiga dalam rumah tangga mereka.

    “Saya faham, sebelum ini rumah tangga kami pernah bergolak gara-gara isu saya membalas mesej seorang wanita. Demi Allah, di pihak saya, tiada orang ketiga. Kenyataan ini perlu juga dibuat bagi menjelaskan situasi kami yang sebenar, agar tiada lagi pihak yang bertanya”
    “Orang tuduh saya macam-macam, kononnya sayalah punca rumah tangga kami berkecai. Apa yang saya boleh katakan, keretakan ini berpunca daripada pergaulan kawan. Saya tidak mahu menyalahkan mana-mana pihak”
    “Lagipun kami berbaik dan masih lagi keluar bersama demi anak-anak. Saya tak mahu mengeruhkan keadaan kerana kami saling memerlukan antara satu sama lain untuk membesarkan mereka,” katanya kepada BH Online.

    Adam telah menceraikan Fatin dengan talak satu pada 30 Mei lalu di Mahkamah Syariah Petaling Jaya. Sebelum itu, Fatin telah memfailkan perceraian pada 15 Mei lalu di atas sebab tidak lagi mempunyai persefahaman sebagai suami isteri.
    Sementara itu Fatin turut memohon maaf kerana terpaksa berdolak-dalik sebelum ini berkaitan status perkahwinan mereka. Katanya, apa yang dilakukan itu atas dasar tidak mahu tertekan.
    “Perceraian ini mengajar saya supaya berhati-hati memilih kawan bagi memastikan diri tidak terpengaruh dengan perkara negatif. Selain itu, kita juga tidak tahu agenda di sebalik keikhlasan mereka berkawan dengan kita,” kongsinya.
    Adam dan Fatin Afeefa mendirikan rumah tangga pada Disember 2013 dan dikurniakan dua cahaya mata, Adam Aisy Arrian berusia 4 tahun juga Ivy Herra Sophia, 2 tahun. Semoga kedua dua belah pihak tabah dalam menghadapi hari yang mendatang.

    Nampaknya ramai di luar sana dalam tempoh 24 jam yang lepas tidak segan silu meluahkan pendapat mereka atas apa yang terjadi antara Aliff Aziz dan isterinya Bella Astillah — kecoh satu Malaysia.
    Dalam satu kemaskini terbaru menerusi Instagram, Rozita Che Wan memuat naik petikan artikel yang memaparkan beliau bersama suami sebagai muka hadapan sebuah akhbar tempatan berkaitan isu kahwin suami muda.
    Apa yang lebih menarik adalah caption yang hadir dengan gambar tersebut — Rozita Che Wan seolah olah memerli Afifah Nasir yang sehingga saat ini dilihat sebagai perampas suami orang dan perosak rumahtangga.
    “Muda atau tua tak penting, yang penting jangan rembat laki orang, betui dak? Kita memang la jaga laki kita, tapi syaiton juga berleluasa. Harap harap jangan la sapa pulak dok rembat laki kami oiiiiii,” tulis Che Ta.

    Keras juga sindiran isteri kepada Zain Saidin ini — maklumlah suami pula memang muda dan kacak serta digilai ramai, mestilah sentiasa ada mata mata wanita nakal yang sentiasa memerhati.
    Jangan risau Che Ta, kami yakin Zain Saidin setia orangnya. (

              â€œKami Tiada Urusan Dengan Mereka Di Karaoke” - Produksi        
    Jika sebelum ini Afifah Nasir mengeluarkan kenyataan kepada BH Onlinemenyatakan bahawa dia dan juga Aliff Aziz berjumpa di pusat karaoke kerana urusan produksi, nampaknya perkara tersebut dinafikan sendiri oleh pengurus produksi drama yang mereka bintangi ketika ini.

    “Kami tidak tahu apa yang mereka lakukan di luar lokasi penggambaran. Buat apa saya nak bohong. Ini urusan peribadi mereka dan pihak produksi tidak masuk campur. Malah kami juga tidak ada sebarang urusan dengan mereka di pusat karaoke itu kerana kami masih sibuk menghabiskan babak lain,” kata Kak Noi yang merupakan pengurus produksi.
    Jadi apakah jawapan sebenarnya tujuan mereka berdua berjumpa jika pengurus produksi sendiri sudah mengeluarkan kenyataan sedemikian.
    Tidak mengapalah, mungkin masa akan menentukan apakah sebenarnya yang terjadi malah pihak Afifah sendiri belum menjelaskan kisah sebenar lagi. Mungkin mereka mahu mencari chemistry dalam lakonan tapi teringat pula kata kata Nabila Huda, kalau berlakon tidak payah nak chemistry sanga

    Menerima kecaman ramai selepas berita Afifah Nasir menjadi orang ketika dalam rumahtangga Aliff Aziz, ruangan komen Anzalna Nasir telah dihujani pelbagai reaksi dari para peminat dunia hiburan.
    Namun komen dari Anzalna Nasir sendiri menarik perhatian kami di mana beliau seakan membela tindakan Afifah Nasir yang keluar bersosial dengan suami orang dan meletakkan isteri Aliff Aziz sebagai pesalah dalam isu ini dengan mengatakan ‘perempuan selepas bersalin memang lain sikit perangai’.

    Komen Anzalna Nasir itu turut mengundang rasa kurang senang dari ramai peminat yang rata rata mahu pelakon itu berdiam diri dari mengeluarkan kenyataan yang boleh memakan diri kelak

              Video Aliff, Afifah Nasir Berpimpin Tangan Tersebar        
    Masih lagi panas kisah Aliff Aziz yang memukul isterinya, Bella Astillah di pusat hiburan kerana setelah isterinya menyerbu lokasi berkenaan, kini tersebar pula video di laman sosial yang menunjukkan susuk tubuh lelaki dan wanita berpegangan tangan dan juga video pendek pertelingkahan yang berlaku.
    Perkara tersebut menjadi lebih hangat apabila adik Anzalna Nasir iaitu Afifah Nasir didakwa sebagai wanita yang keluar dengan Aliff. Tidak cukup dengan dakwaan tersebut, kini tersebar sebuah video yang berkemungkinan dirakam daripada rakaman kamera litar tertutup di premis tersebut.
    Selain itu, terdapat satu lagi rakaman video pendek yang mempunyi suara yang menyoal individu dipercayai di dalam bilik karaoke tersebut.
    Selain itu, Anzalna turut menyuarakan pendapat bahawa apa yang tersebar kini hanyalah daripada satu pihak saja manakala Bella pula mempersoalkan apakah yang dilakukan oleh Afifah sehingga suaminya itu tergila-gilakan wanita tersebut.
    Kita tunggu perkembangan terbaru kisah ini. Apa pun, semoga perkara ini dapat diselesaikan dengan tenteram

              Anak L/Nikah: Keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan Musnahkan Keluarga Islam..        

    BANGI, 4 Zulkaedah 1438H, Jumaat â€“ Pendekatan simplistik Mahkamah Rayuan dengan hanya mengambilkira kuasa Akta Pendaftaran Kelahiran dan Kematian 1957 dalam isu nasab anak luar nikah, boleh memusnahkan institusi keluarga orang Islam, serta mengundang pelbagai polemik.
    Presiden Persatuan Peguam-Peguam Muslim Malaysia, Datuk Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar berkata, dengan keputusan sebegini akan mengundang lebih banyak polemik di dalam masyarakat, di mana isu pewarisan ketidak sahtaraf anak dan lain-lain menjadi lebih sukar dibuktikan di mahkamah.
    “Walaupun Mahkamah Rayuan mengatakan ianya hanya isu pendaftaran tetapi kesannya sangat melata akan dirasakan oleh semua orang Islam kelak,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini sebagai mengulas kebenaran yang diberikan Mahkamah Rayuan kepada anak pasangan beragama Islam yang lahir luar nikah untuk berbinkan bapanya.
    Keputusan itu dicapai oleh panel tiga hakim ketika membenarkan rayuan seorang kanak-kanak lelaki berusia tujuh tahun dan kedua ibu bapanya.
    Hakim Datuk Abdul Rahman Sebli dalam keputusan penting setebal 29 muka surat berkata, Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) selaku responden kedua telah bertindak di luar bidang kuasa ketika mendaftarkan ‘Abdullah’ sebagai nama bapa kepada kanak-kanak itu dalam sijil kelahirannya.
    Ibu dan bapa kanak-kanak itu (perayu kedua dan perayu ketiga), kedua-duanya beragama Islam bernikah pada 24 Oktober 2009. Kanak-kanak lelaki itu lahir pada 17 April 2010 iaitu lima bulan dan 24 hari (atau lima bulan dan 27 hari menurut kalendar Qamariah Islam).
    Zainul Rijal berkata, Akta Pendaftaran Kelahiran dan Kematian 1957 dalam isu nasab anak luar nikah tidak boleh dibaca secara berasingan dengan undang-undang lain, termasuk Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan undang-undang Islam yang berkuatkuasa.
    “Seksyen 110 hingga 119 Akta Undang-Undang Keluarga Islam (Wilayah-Wilayah Persekutuan) 1984 memperuntukkan tentang kesahtarafan anak. Seksyen 110 khususnya adalah berkaitan dengan siapakah yang dikaitkan sebagai bapa bagi orang Islam.
    “Isu kelahiran lebih empat tahun selepas pembubaran perkahwinan, kelahiran selepas pengakuan bahawa iddah telah tamat, persetubuhan syubhah dan banyak lagi diperuntukkan di dalam Akta Undang-Undang Keluarga Islam tersebut, yang seharusnya menjadi panduan kepada undang-undang lain, kerana Akta Undang-Undang Keluarga Islam ini adalah undang-undang spesifik untuk orang Islam manakala Akta Pendaftaran Kelahiran dan Kematian 1957 adalah undang-undang yang lebih umum,” katanya.
    Sehubungan itu, Zainul Rijal mendesak Kerajaan Persekutuan agar meminda Akta Pendaftaran Kelahiran dan Kematian 1957 ini bagi menghormati Islam sebagai agama Persekutuan selaras dengan Perkara 3 Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan mengecualikan pemakaian sebahagian daripada akta ini yang bertentangan dengan hukum syarak kepada orang Islam.
    SAYA merujuk kepada penghakiman Mahkamah Rayuan baru-baru ini di dalam kes Rayuan No W-01(A)-365-09/2016 (Nama Pihak Perayu dirahsiakan Mahkamah) mengenai kesahan meletakkan bin bagi anak tak sah taraf kepada bapa biologi anak tersebut. Penghakiman Mahkamah Rayuan tersebut dibuat berdasarkan seksyen 13 Akta Pendaftaran Kelahiran dan Kematian 1957 yang membenarkan pendaftaran anak tak sahtaraf dibinkan kepada …Continue reading

              Firewalls personales para Linux        

    Hoy he desinstalado firestarter. Me hacen falta ciertas reglas de iptables las máquinas virtuales que uso para pruebas, y pensé que con firestarter podría hacerlo sin tener que editar ficheros en línea de comandos. No quería algo tan serio como lo que hago a diario en el trabajo. Quería algo sencillo, relajado, aunque no fuera muy seguro. Al fin y al cabo, es para mi ordenador de escritorio, que ya está detrás de un router/firewall.

    Firestarter es muy fácil de usar, pero nunca acabó de funcionar bien del todo. Había permitido que los equipos conectados al interfaz br0 (en el que están las máquinas virtuales) salieran a Internet, pero no funcionaba DHCP. Lo permití desde cualquier sitio y cualquier interfaz, y seguía sin funcionar. Luego descubrí que una VPN que tengo con el ordenador que alberga esta web tampoco funcionaba. Permití todo el tráfico desde la red de la VPN, y seguía sin funcionar. Veía muchos paquetes ICMP rechazados desde sitios que monitorizo con smokeping para ver la salud de la red (extraño, porque era yo quien iniciaba los pings). Permití todos los ICMP ... y seguía sin funcionar.

    Hoy he estado buscando alternativas. Hace mucho tiempo había llegado a tres "finalistas": firestarter, otro para KDE que ni recuerdo, y fwbuilder. El problema con el de KDE es que no uso KDE, y el problema con fwbuilder es que, para lo que yo quiero, es demasiado potente. Está muy bien, pero es demasiado para algo tan sencillo como lo que yo quería. Para que se hagan una idea, antes de usar firestarter era un fichero en /etc/init.d con tres o cuatro líneas llamando a iptables.

    Pensé en ufw, pero lo descarté porque sólo vale para el propio equipo. Para hacer enmascaramientos y cosas "avanzadas" necesitas hacer algo de magia negra. No hay mucha diferencia entre eso y mis scripts.

    Viendo que no hay más remedio, he instalado fwbuilder.

    Cosas que no me gustan de fwbuilder:

    • Como ya dije, es demasiado complicado para lo que yo quiero. Necesitas saber de firewalls para usarlo. A mí me da igual, pero no lo recomendaría a alguien que quiere un "firewall de escritorio" típico. Sólo la configuración de un "objeto firewall" ya es bastante liosa si no sabes qué estás haciendo.
    • Necesita entrar por ssh como root en el firewall (localhost, en mi caso) para actualizar las reglas, o con un usuario que por sudo pueda escribir donde las tienes.
    • Es un servicio del sistema. Es decir: no hay un icono en la bandeja del sistema en el que pinchas y puedes cambiar cosas, activar o desactivar el firewall, y todo eso. Tienes que tirar de terminal para hacerlo.
    • Por lo anterior, la instalación requiere que toques cosas en el sistema si quieres que funcione "bien": tienes que configurar un usuario que pueda levantar el firewall con sudo, crear un directorio para las reglas e instalar un script init.d y un fichero en /etc/default que vienen en los ejemplos (no se hace por defecto porque puedes tener el firewall en otro sitio que no sea donde editas las reglas).
    • Mi configuración de fwbuilder tiene cuatro reglas en fitler y una en nat. Para hacerlo, entre media hora y 45 minutos, sobre todo definiendo interfaces y hosts. Soy un poco maniático y estuve buceando entre las opciones de fwbuilder para ver qué podían hacer, pero quitando ese tiempo tardaría un mínimo de 15 minutos en haber configurado mis cuatro reglas.

      Luego hay que añadir otros cinco minutos cuando descubrí que la comunicación desde las máquinas virtuales a Internet funcionaba muy bien, pero no así desde el equipo que hace de firewall. Cuando vi que Google no respondía empecé a sospechar que faltaba afinar un poco el firewall.

      Una vez hecho, no hay mucho más que tocar. Voy a tener durante un tiempo fwbuilder a ver qué resultado da. Me temo que implique volver a lanzar un terminal para activar el firewall cada vez que reinicie (que, por suerte, no es muy a menudo), pero de momento lo asumo. En unas semanas veré si acabo harto y vuelvo a alguna solución más user friendly.


              Linux es fácil        

    Tanto como extirparse un cálculo renal con una cucharilla de postre. Usando los pies.

    Sí, estoy un poco mosqueado.

    Desde la actualización de Ubuntu "Jaunty" a "Karmic" tenía varios "problemillas". El primero, que no funcionaba el dongle USB Wifi, con lo que no tenía Internet. El segundo, que no funcionaba el sonido. Nada importante, como ven. Lo normal en una actualización entre distribuciones (presuntamente) estables. Para que luego digan de Debian.

    El problema de la Wifi lo solucioné cambiando de dongle (por suerte, tenía dos distintos). El problema del sonido lo arreglé tocando la configuración de pulseaudio tras una furiosa búsqueda en Google y Launchpad. pulseaudio es como un supositorio: sabes que a largo plazo será bueno para ti, pero el mal rato que vas a pasar mientras te lo ponen no te lo quita nadie. Ahora mismo hay mucha gente a la que le da problemas, pero es una arquitectura superior que permite mucho más de lo que permitían los servidores de sonido actuales. Todas las distribuciones lo han adoptado, y a pesar de lo que parece, en general funciona bien.

    Pero lo dicho: un supositorio.

    El cambio que tuve que hacer en la configuración de pulseaudio fue mínimo: descomentar una línea y ya está. Pero para alguien que se acabe de instalar Ubuntu no sería tan fácil. Tendría que bucear entre los bugs de Ubuntu, saber qué es ALSA, saber qué es pulseaudio ... No sería fácil. En absoluto.

    Y lo de hoy fue la guinda. Me di cuenta de que no me funcionaba la entrada de línea. Ahí es donde enchufo la salida del multiefectos de la guitarra, con lo que si no hay entrada de línea, no hay sonido de guitarra. Pensé que sería cuestión de jugar un poco con alsamixer, como otras veces que he actualizado el kernel. Pero no: a pesar de que los volúmenes estaban bien, y de que en el monitor de pulseaudio se veía que había sonido en la entrada de línea, no se oía nada de lo que entraba por ahí.

    La primera búsqueda de Google me llevó a probar a indicar un parámetro model para el módulo snd-hda-intel, según esta lista. Ya lo había probado hacía tiempo cuando tuve otros problemas con la tarjeta de sonido, y aunque entonces lo arregló, ahora no hubo suerte. De hecho, el problema que tenía entonces era el mismo que el de ahora, y un par de búsquedas más me hicieron recordar qué era lo que había tenido que hacer: activar el analog loopback de la tarjeta, uno de los "switches" de alsamixer.

    Que no aparecía por ningún lado.

    Seguí buscando y vi que a otra gente le había pasado lo mismo: el control de analog loopback había desaparecido. En ese bug se indicaba una entrada del changelog de ALSA en el que se decía que, como daba muchos problemas, lo habían quitado por defecto. Ahora se podía activar con el hint "loopback = yes".

    Por supuesto, ni idea de a qué se refería con lo de "hint", ni cómo aplicarlo.

    En el bug no lo explicaban. Siempre se agradece que te digan parte de la solución a tu problema para que puedas probarte a ti mismo encontrando el resto. Eso curte. Crea carácter. Distingue a los hombres de los niños. Si yo estuviera probando Ubuntu, al llegar aquí hubiera tirado el ratón por la ventana en un ataque de frustración y hubiera instalado Windows.

    Media hora y varias búsquedas en Google más tarde, encontré un documento llamado "More notes on HD-Audio driver" que está en los fuentes de ALSA. Este pequeño fichero de 16 páginas de amena documentación técnica, en texto plano, es lo que cualquier usuario medio podría leer y comprender en un momento para hacer troubleshooting de sus problemas de sonido. Si "usuario medio" implica varios años de experiencia con Linux, claro.

    En la sección "HD-Audio Reconfiguration" explica que el módulo snd-hda-intel se puede reconfigurar en caliente usando los ficheros de /sys. En este punto es necesario incluir el texto original, para gozarlo en toda su gloria:

    The following sysfs
    files are available under each codec-hwdep device directory (e.g. 
    /sys/class/sound/hwC0D0):
    
    vendor_id::
      Shows the 32bit codec vendor-id hex number.  You can change the
      vendor-id value by writing to this file.
    subsystem_id::
      Shows the 32bit codec subsystem-id hex number.  You can change the
      subsystem-id value by writing to this file.
    revision_id::
      Shows the 32bit codec revision-id hex number.  You can change the
      revision-id value by writing to this file.
    afg::
      Shows the AFG ID.  This is read-only.
    mfg::
      Shows the MFG ID.  This is read-only.
    name::
      Shows the codec name string.  Can be changed by writing to this
      file.
    modelname::
      Shows the currently set `model` option.  Can be changed by writing
      to this file.
    init_verbs::
      The extra verbs to execute at initialization.  You can add a verb by
      writing to this file.  Pass three numbers: nid, verb and parameter
      (separated with a space).
    hints::
      Shows / stores hint strings for codec parsers for any use.
      Its format is `key = value`.  For example, passing `hp_detect = yes`
      to IDT/STAC codec parser will result in the disablement of the
      headphone detection.
    init_pin_configs::
      Shows the initial pin default config values set by BIOS.
    driver_pin_configs::
      Shows the pin default values set by the codec parser explicitly.
      This doesn't show all pin values but only the changed values by
      the parser.  That is, if the parser doesn't change the pin default
      config values by itself, this will contain nothing.
    user_pin_configs::
      Shows the pin default config values to override the BIOS setup.
      Writing this (with two numbers, NID and value) appends the new
      value.  The given will be used instead of the initial BIOS value at
      the next reconfiguration time.  Note that this config will override
      even the driver pin configs, too.
    reconfig::
      Triggers the codec re-configuration.  When any value is written to
      this file, the driver re-initialize and parses the codec tree
      again.  All the changes done by the sysfs entries above are taken
      into account.
    clear::
      Resets the codec, removes the mixer elements and PCM stuff of the
      specified codec, and clear all init verbs and hints.
    

    Pero ahí estaba: el fichero hints, que es a lo que se referían en el changelog. Supuse entonces que lo que había que hacer era añadir loopback = yes a ese fichero, tal que así:

    echo "loopback = yes" > /sys/class/sound/hwC0D0/hints
    

    Y luego, reconfigurar la tarjeta:

    echo 1 > /sys/class/sound/hwC0D0/reconfig
    

    Con eso ya aparecía el control de analog loopback en alsamixer, y ya funcionaba el sonido de la entrada de línea.

    ¡Jo, qué fácil era!

    Si es que al final uno se da cuenta de que no es que Linux sea difícil: es sólo que no se ha parado a buscar durante hora y media entre bugs, posts de foros y documentación técnica. Cualquiera podría hacerlo.

    Creo que éste tampoco será el año de Linux en el escritorio.

    PS: y por encima, un bot me ha llenado de spam varias de las entradas del weblog. Ya ni del capcha se puede fiar uno.

              adidas nmd runner womens in Ajutor și asistență tehnică : Kubuntu        
    Topic: adidas nmd runner womens Message: Besides adidas nmd r1 uk like a fitness writer, Tarima has also recently been an aerobics trainer for a long time. Knowing the importance from the sports apparels and workouts shoes for efficient workout sessions, she uses his long experience to use picking up the accurately designed aerobics shoes. adidas nmd r1 black She personally believes that will good sports footwear contribute a good deal in keeping the perfect balance for fitness. Although this is present elsewhere in a couple of running shoes, much belonging to the Adidas forMOTION technology is targeted on the heel portion belonging to the shoe. It features its own material that divides the heel part of the shoe into a couple of distinct sections. The material between these people allows the lower plate-like outsole to allow for the upper midsole closer towards the feet to slide and make progress as the shoe has effects on the ground. This is supposed to absorb impact while carrying your foot right much smoother strike. Adidas claims that this result mimics the natural motion belonging to the foot as close as you can.         This technology adidas nmd runner womens guides the foot through a midsole system that comes with two different molded factors. The two materials offer different type of properties that affect how the shoe reacts to every foot strike. The adiPRENE is a shock absorbing element found about the heel of the shoe as well as adiPRENE+ allows the forefoot in order to bounce and propel itself forward. Combining these two materials on different parts of the shoes make every single Adidas shoe quite useful in reducing impact and releasing energy to launch the runner forwards. CLIMACOOL will be Adidas version of breathable technology. A lot of different materials fall under the CLIMACOOL technology patio umbrella. They all allow the ventilation belonging to the foot from all aspects of the running shoe therefore, making them cool as well as comfortable.                  NOSEAM adidas nmd runner pink The NOSEAM technological innovation in Adidas is a healthier way it sounds. The jogging shoes lack any seams. The outcomes is a nice stretched that fit that under no circumstances produces chaffing or irritation. Adidas has done a great job on this and durability just isn't affected by the deficiency of seams. TORSION SYSTEM Similar to numerous other technologies present while in the other running shoe brands, the Adidas Torsion Process allows the forefoot to move independently from the high heel. This allows the shoes to offer in the natural twisting movement belonging to the foot during the gait cycle. The result is superior stability and support.

              Getting started with nodejs - building an MVC site        
    A couple of weeks ago I started getting into nodejs. At first I was quite skeptic, I don't even recall why, but after playing with it for just a couple hours I started loving it. Seriously, It's so simple to use, and it seems like the nodejs eco-system is growing really fast. I'm not going to go into what nodejs is or how it works, so if you don't know, you should start by reading this.

    What I am going to show here, is a really quick and simple tutorial as to how to get started building a website on nodejs using the MVC design pattern. I'll go over the quick installation of nodejs and walk through getting the very basic mvc wireframe website up and running.
    (Since I've been a .net developer for quite a while, I might be comparing some of the terms used to the terminology .net programmers are familiar with)

    Installing nodejs
    First, download and install nodejs.
    On ubuntu, this would be :

    sudo apt-get install nodejs
    (If your ubuntu version is lower than 12.10 than you need to add the official PPA. Read this)

    Now, you need to install the npm (nodejs package manager) :

    sudo apt-get install nodejs npm
    This will help us install packages built for nodejs. (exactly like 'Nuget' for Visual Studio users).

    Starting our website
    I've looked up quite a few mvc frameworks for nodejs, and I would say that the best one, by far, is expressjs. It's really easy to use and it's being actively updated.

    Create a directory for your website, navigate their in the terminal, and type

    sudo npm install express

    Now we need to tell nodejs how to configure our application, where are the controllers/models/views, and what port to listen to...

    Create a file called index.js in the website directory you created -

    First things first :

    var express = require('express');
    app = express();

    This defines 'app' as our expressjs web application, and gives us all the cool functionality that comes with the expressjs framework.

    After that we need to configure our application :

    app.configure(function() {
    app.set('view engine', 'jade');
    app.set('views', __dirname + '/views');

    app.use(express.logger());
    app.use(express.bodyParser());
    app.use(express.cookieParser());

    app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/scripts'));
    app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/css'));
    app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/img'));

    app.use(app.router);
    });


    The first two lines tells express we're going to use the 'jade' view engine to render our views. (This is like 'razor' but a little different, for people coming from the .net mvc). You can read about how the view engine works over here. The next 3 lines tell express to use certain middleware. ('middleware' are like 'filters' in the asp.net mvc world) middleware intercept each request, and can do what it wants, including manipulating the request. Basically, each middleware is a method being called with the request object, response object, and 'next' object respectively.
    The 'next' object is a function that calls the next middleware in line.
    All the middleware are called in the same order that they are defined. The middlewares I use here are basic middlewares that comes with the expressjs framework, and just make our life much easier (by parsing the request object, the cookies to our request/response objects and logging each request for us).

    The final 3 lines of code, tell expressjs which directories have static files in them. This means that each request to a filename that exists in one of these files will be served as static content.
    Note : if we put a file called 'main.css' in the '/css' folder, we request it by going to http://ourdomain.com/main.css and NOT by going to http://ourdomain.com/css/main.css. (This got me confused a little at first...)

    After all that, we need to add our models and controllers...

    require('./models');
    require('./controllers');
    The nodejs default when requiring a directory is to look for the file 'index.js' in that directory, so what I did is create an index.js file in each of those directories, and inside it just add a couple of 'require()' calls to specific files in that directory.

    For models you can create javascript object however you like. On the projects I'm working on, I started using mongoose - which is like an ORM for mongodb. It's really simple to use, but I won't go into it for now...

    Finally, in our init.js file, we need to tell our app to listen to a certain port -

    app.listen(8888);

    Controllers
    Defining controllers is really easy with express - Each 'action' is a method, defined by GET or POST, the url (which can include dynamic parameters in it), and the function to call. A typical controller looks like this :

    app.get('/about', function(request, response) {
    // just render the view called 'about'
    // this requires us to have a file called 'about.jade' in our 'views' folder we defined
    response.render('about');
    });

    app.get('/user/:userId', function(request, response) {
    // userId is a parameter in the url request
    response.writeHead(200); // return 200 HTTP OK status
    response.end('You are looking for user ' + request.route.params['userId']);
    });

    app.post('/user/delete/:userId', function(request, response) {
    // just a POST url sample
    // going to this url in the browser won't return anything..

    // do some work...
    response.render('user-deleted'); // again, render our jade view file
    });


    So, that's the end of this. It's really basic I know, but I hope it will help you get started... :)
    The main idea of this post was to show just how easy it is to get started with nodejs.
    I think I will be posting a lot more about nodejs in the near future! :)

    Have fun! :)

                      
    ATAPUERCA

    1.  ¿A qué animales debía enfentrarse el hombre de Atapuerca para sobrevivir?

    Atapuerca es un tesoro arqueológico de dimensiones difícilmente estimables. No se trata de un yacimiento más, pues contiene la historia de la humanidad desde hace aproximadamente 1.500.000 años.

    La fauna de Atapuerca:

    Hace casi un millón de años, la Sierra de Atapuerca era, como otros lugares de Europa y Asia (continentes, que los animales han poblado y transitado como uno solo y que denominamos Eurasia), un lugar de gran riqueza ecológica, con abundantes animales y plantas que a su vez servían de alimento a otros animales, los depredadores. La Sierra ha ido cambiado su paisaje a lo largo de cientos de miles de años, pero manteniendo su riqueza y así, distintos linajes y familias de animales han ocupado estos parajes dejando sitio a su vez a nuevas especies, al tiempo que otras protagonizaban su propio declive.



    Hacia el Pleistoceno medio: una inestable transición

    El telón de fondo de las faunas que componían el final del Pleistoceno inferior, el biocrón Epivillafranquiense, se caracterizó por la llegada de un periodo de creciente variabilidad climática en toda Europa.

    Los taxones principales (aunque no todos habitaron la Sierra de Atapuerca en ese periodo) que marcaron el final del Pleistoceno inferior en transición hacia el medio serían: el bisonte de patas largas (‘Bison menneri’), el ciervo gigante (‘Eucladoceros giulii’), ‘Cervus s.l. nestii vallonnetensis’, ‘Capreolus cusanoides’, Stephanorhinus hundsheimensis’, el jaguar europeo (‘Panthera gombaszoegensis’), el guepardo gigante (‘Acinonyx pardinensis pleistocaenicus’), el puma (‘Puma pardoides’), la hiena gigante (‘Pachycrocuta brevirostris’), el ancestro de los osos pardos y de las cavernas (‘Ursus dolinensis’), el gran perro cazador (o licaón) ‘Canis (Xenocyon) lycaonoides’, y el grácil lobo de Mosbach (‘Canis mosbachensis’). Todas estás especies conformaban los ecosistemas europeos de hace entre 1,3 y 0,8 Ma, un lapso de tiempo de alrededor de medio millón de años que no está definido ni por las faunas típicas del Pleistoceno inferior, ni por las del medio, y tampoco se trata de un mosaico de ambas. Son las faunas Epivillafranquienses, las mejor adaptadas a esta tormentosa transición que experimentaba este momento de la prehistoria.

    El yacimiento más representativo de este conjunto faunístico, por lo completo de sus restos así como por la gran diversidad ecológica del conjunto fósil, es Untermassfeld, (en Turingia, Alemania) con un millón de años de antigüedad, que refleja un momento entre cálido y templado además de húmedo. Apenas unos miles de años más tarde del depósito alemán, el yacimiento de Vallonnet (Mentón), al sur de Francia, muy próximo a Niza, nos proporciona información de frío y aridez para ese periodo


     El hombre de Atapuerca debía enfentarse a guepardos gigantes, a panteras, a caballos salvajes, al tigre con dientes de sable...  para sobrevivir.

              Dash        
    Scaled Screenshot of Ubuntu 11.10 Unity’s Dash on a neutral background: Full size The 8 items in the home screen of Ubuntu Unity’s Dash have been found to be confusing in user testing and will be replaced for the next release.

              Experimental Theme Mockup        
    There are complaints about Ubuntu’s theming again and again. While I don’t think the default in Feisty is horrible, I don’t think it’s good, either. Colour perspective is an important reason for the prevalence of blue backgrounds. Orange jumps to the front, making Ubuntu look “full” and even “loud”. So I played with warm but […]
              Ubuntu Bluetooth        
    I installed Ubuntu in the summer of 2007 and I am still using it and enjoying. I started with 7.04 and since this is the only OS of my laptop, I now have 8.04.1. I have a Dell Inspiron and it has Bluetooth. We all know that Ubuntu is little backfoot on bluetooth front. I recently cleaned up my system and installed Ubuntu 8.04 from the free CD i got from Canonical. Earlier I had a software to disable bluetooth on my system. I googled many times and did not find anything. Until today when it is a holiday in India and I had nothing to do, I found the software again. And the name is Blueman. It has a preety good and simple interface and I hope one day my bluetooth will work with this. But it has sloved my immediate problem to turn off the bluetooth on my system.













    Just wanted to share this as it is not so easy to find it. Here is the link and download instructions are very easy.

              Private folder on Ubuntu: Cryptkeeper        
    Although Team Ubuntu is giving you some privacy in its next release with a new "private" folder, we still need some more. I found a very simple and elegant tool for your private desires. The name Cryptkeeper. Some time back I googled for a private/password protected folder on Ubuntu, but found nothing and suddenly today, I just came across this amazing and simple tool for password protected folders on Ubuntu.

    Here is how it works:

    When you install it from Add/Remove programs in Ubuntu, it comes with a preety good icon in system tools.



    You click it and you will notice a nice key icon in your system tray.



    Click the keys and you have the option to create a encrypted folder, like I have created and named it private.



    And thats it. You have a folder in which you can keep all your private data. Oh I forgot to mention that, when you create a folder, you will be asked for a password. Wow! Now next time you wana access you private folder, click on the keys and select your folder, you will be prompted with a window for password. Put in the same password and you are in.

              Google Gadgets on Ubuntu        
    Google has just launched Google Gadgets for Linux. Google has extended this tool to Linux, as Windows and Mac users are already enjoying these for a while. If you are using XP, you must have a look at Yahoo Widgets. Vista and MAC users already have this and I don't think they want more. For a bit help I am providing a simple procedure to install Google Gadgets on Ubuntu 8.04.

    Go to System —> Administration —> Software Sources, click on the Third-Party tab, then "Add" the following lines
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/googlegadgets/ubuntu hardy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/googlegadgets/ubuntu hardy main

    Then click Close and Reload.

    To install Google Gadgets using the following command from terminal

    sudo aptitude install google-gadgets
    This completes installation.



    To run Google Gadgets Press Alt+F2 and type "ggl-gtk" to launch Google Gadgets on desktop and "ggl-gtk -s -bg" for Google Gadgets in sidebar.


              Comment on How To Get Desktop Notifications For WhatsApp Chats by John Pollard        
    I tried WAToolkit on Chrome on Ubuntu 16.04 and I still only get desktop notifications when the whatsapp web app page is open. I can see the WAToolkit icon and it is green, but no joy getting the desktop notifications when Chrome isn't running, or even when it is running but the whatsapp page is not open. Frustrating as sounds ideal if I could get it to work. I may try Whatsie as an alternative, though I prefer to go the more "official" web app route.
