    Another minor release of RcppRedis just arrived on CRAN, following a fairly long break since the last release in October 2018. RcppRedis is one of several packages connecting R to the fabulous Redis in-memory datastructure store (and much more). RcppRedis does not pretend to be feature (...)

  • Enrico Zini: Himblick one day later
    This is part of a series of posts on the design and technical steps of creating Himblick, a digital signage box based on the Raspberry Pi 4. One day after the first deploy, we went to check how the system was doing, and noticed some fine tuning to do, some pretty much urgent. Inspecting Since (...)

  • Dmitry Shachnev: Qt packages built with OpenGL ES support are now available
    Some time ago, there was a thread on debian-devel where we discussed how to make Qt packages work on hardware that supports OpenGL ES, but not the desktop OpenGL. My first proposal was to switch to OpenGL ES by default on ARM64, as that is the main affected architecture. After a lengthy (...)

  • Enrico Zini: Raspberry Pi 4: force video mode at boot
    This is part of a series of posts on the design and technical steps of creating Himblick, a digital signage box based on the Raspberry Pi 4.

  • Jonathan Dowland: data-types for representing stream-processing programs
    This year I want to write much more about my PhD work on my blog, and here's my first effort. Most of this material has been languishing as a draft for over a year, so it's past time to get it out! 1 + 2 As part of my PhD work, I've been looking at data structures for representing (...)

  • Enrico Zini: Creating a Raspberry PI SD from tar files
    This is part of a series of posts on the design and technical steps of creating Himblick, a digital signage box based on the Raspberry Pi 4. Provisioning a SD card starting from the official raspbian-lite is getting quite slow, since there are a lot of packages to install. It would be (...)

    This is part of a series of posts on the design and technical steps of creating Himblick, a digital signage box based on the Raspberry Pi 4. A month later, we tried building an himblick image and it stopped playing video with vlc, only showing a black screen. Although we're working with (...)

  • Anisa Kuci: Outreachy post 3 - Midterm report
    Time passes by quickly when you do the things that you like. And so have passed by very quickly the first six weeks of Outreachy. The first half of the internship has been an amazing experience for me. I have worked and learned so many new things. I got familiar more closely with the Debian (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: rfoaas 2.1.0: New upstream so new access point!

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: BH 1.72.0-3 on CRAN
    The BH 1.72.0-1 release of BH required one update 1.72.0-2 when I botched a hand-edited path (to comply with the old-school path-length-inside-tar limit). Turns out another issue needed a fix. This release improved on prior ones by starting from a pristine directory. But as a side effect, (...)

  • Steve Kemp: I won't write another email client
    Once upon a time I wrote an email client, in a combination of C++ and Lua. Later I realized it was flawed, and because I hadn't realized that writing email clients is hard I decided to write it anew (again in C++ and Lua). Nowadays I do realize how hard writing email clients is, so (...)

  • Enrico Zini: Checking sphinx code blocks
    I'm too lazy to manually check code blocks in autogenerated sphinx documentation to see if they are valid and reasonably up to date. Doing it automatically feels much more interesting to me: here's how I did it. This is a simple sphinx extension to extract code blocks in a JSON file. (...)

  • Thomas Lange: 20 years of FAI and a new release
    20 years ago, on December 20, 1999 FAI 1.0 was released. Many things have happened since then.

Teething problems.") 2005: Wiki page and IRC 2005: FAI CD 2006: fai (...)

  • Russ Allbery: C TAP Harness 4.6

    Term::ANSIColor is the core Perl module that provides functions to change text attributes using ECMA-048 escape sequences.

    glibc 2.29-7 and libxcrypt 1:4.4.10-10 today entered Debian testing: crypt(3) and the other related library functions in libcrypt from now on will be provided by libxcrypt instead of glibc. After 18 months of packaging work, Debian finally supports modern password hashing methods like (...)

    podlators provides the Pod::Man and Pod::Text conversion modules for Perl. This release is a minor bug-fix release, mostly correcting a test suite problem with old versions of Pod::Simple.

    Protests and their history A Happy New Year to all. While I would have loved to start on a better note, situations are the way they are. Before starting with the prickly process of NPR, NRC let me just focus on the protests themselves. Now protests either in India or abroad are not a new (...)
