  • Steve Kemp: A blog overhaul
    When this post becomes public I'll have successfully redeployed my blog! My blog originally started in 2005 as a Wordpress installation, at some point I used Mephisto, and then I wrote my own solution. My project was pretty cool; I'd parse a directory of text-files, one file for each (...)

  • Antoine Beaupr?: Tip of the day: batch PDF conversion with LibreOffice
  • Jonas Meurer: debian lts report 2019.09
    Debian LTS report for September 2019 This month I was allocated 10 hours and carried over 9.5 hours from August. Unfortunately, again I didn't find much time to work on LTS issues, partially because I was travelling. I spent 5 hours on the task listed below. That means that I carry over (...)

  • Jamie McClelland: Editing video without a GUI? Really?
    It seems counter intuitive - if ever there was a program in need of a graphical user interface, it's a non-linear video editing program. However, as part of the May First board elections, I discovered otherwise. We asked each board candidate to submit a 1 - 2 minute video introduction (...)

  • Jonathan McDowell: Ada Lovelace Day: 5 Amazing Women in Tech
    It's Ada Lovelace day and I've been lax in previous years about celebrating some of the talented women in technology I know or follow on the interwebs. So, to make up for it, here are 5 amazing technologists. Allison Randal I was initially aware of Allison through her work on Perl, was (...)

  • Julien Danjou: Python and fast HTTP clients
    Nowadays, it is more than likely that you will have to write an HTTP client for your application that will have to talk to another HTTP server. The ubiquity of REST API makes HTTP a first class citizen. That's why knowing optimization patterns are a prerequisite. There are many HTTP clients (...)

  • Antoine Beaupr?: This is why native apps matter
    I was just looking a web stream on Youtube today and was wondering why my CPU was so busy. So I fired up top and saw my web browser (Firefox) took up around 70% of a CPU to play the stream. I thought, "this must be some high resolution crazy stream! how modern! such wow!" Then I thought, wait, (...)

  • Norbert Preining: RIP (for now) Calibre in Debian
    The current purge of all Python2 related packages has a direct impact on Calibre. The latest version of Calibre requires Python modules that are not (anymore) available for Python 2, which means that Calibre >= 4.0 will for the foreseeable future not be available in Debian. I just have uploaded (...)

  • Ben Hutchings: Kernel Recipes 2019, part 2
    This conference only has a single track, so I attended almost all the talks. This time I didn't take notes but I've summarised all the talks I attended. This is the second and last part of that; see part 1 if you missed it. XDP closer integration with network stack Speaker: Jesper (...)

  • Norbert Preining: TensorFlow 2.0 with GPU on Debian/sid
    Some time ago I have been written about how to get Tensorflow (1.x) running on current Debian/sid back then. It turned out that this isn't correct anymore and needs an update, so here it is, getting the most uptodate TensorFlow 2.0 running with nVidia support running on Debian/sid. Step 1: (...)

  • Matthew Garrett: Investigating the security of Lime scooters
    (Note: to be clear, this vulnerability does not exist in the current version of the software on these scooters. Also, this is not the topic of my Kawaiicon talk.) I've been looking at the security of the Lime escooters. These caught my attention because: (1) There's a whole bunch of (...)

    I was assigned 20 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and worked all those hours this month. I prepared and, after review, released Linux 3.16.74, including various security and other fixes. I then rebased the Debian package onto that. I uploaded that with a small number of (...)

  • Mike Gabriel: Install ActivInspire Smart Board Software on Debian 10
    From one of my customers, I received the request to figure out an installation pathway for ActivInspire, the Promethean smart board software suite. ActivInspire is offered as DEB builds for Ubuntu 18.04. On a Debian 10 (aka buster) system the installation requires some hack-around (utilizing (...)

    Exactly 10 years ago, on October 1, 2009, I started my work at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST), arriving the previous day in a place not completely unknown, but with a completely different outlook: I had a position as Associate Professor, and somehow was looking (...)

  • Jonathan McDowell: Life with a Yubikey
    At the past two DebConfs Thomas Goirand of infomaniak has run a workshop on using a Yubikey, and been generous enough to provide a number of devices for Debian folk. Last year I was fortunate enough to get hold of one of the devices on offer. My primary use for the device is to hold my PGP (...)

  • Norbert Preining: TeX Live/Debian updates 20190930
    TeX Live 2019 has seen already many updates since the initial upload to Debian, most of which I have never reported about. Today I have uploaded a new set of packages, based on the tlnet archives of 20190930. The long list of updates is only from the last bunch, but contains a huge amount of (...)
