  • Creating Simple Debian Data Packages

    Linux
    26 May 2015 | 5:18 pm
    One of the things I often create for the Bodhi project are simple Debian packages that just contain data files that do not need to be compiled. The use for this style of package is generally for distributing things like theme files and wall papers, but it can also be used for packaging applications that do not need to be compiled like Python scripts.

  • How to Handle ISO Files on Linux with Mount, AcetoneISO and Furious

    28 May 2015 | 9:17 am
    ISO files are basically archive files that represent the contents written in every sector of an optical disk. This way you can have a CD or DVD image handy any time in your hard drive and use it accordingly (either mount it to access the data, or burn it on an actual physical disk). Linux users are very font of ISO files as this is the most common format that Linux distributions come in.

    28 May 2015 | 1:06 pm
    The Justice Department is weighing in on the hot-button intellectual property dispute between Google and Oracle, telling the Supreme Court that APIs are protected by copyright.The Obama administration's position means it is siding with Oracle and a federal appeals court that said application programming interfaces are subject to copyright protections. The high court in January asked for the government's views on the closely watched case.The dispute centers on Google copying names, declarations, and header lines of the Java APIs in Android.

    Is the locked “books room” at McMahon Hall at UW a metaphor for DRM in the academy? Could it be, like so many things in Seattle, sponsored by Amazon? Mika noticed the room several weeks ago but felt that today’s International Day Against DRM was a opportune time to raise the questions in front of a wider audience.
  • DRM on Streaming Services

    Benjamin Mako Hill
    6 May 2015 | 8:43 pm
    For the 2015 International Day Against DRM, I wrote a short essay on DRM for streaming services posted on the Defective by Design website. I’m republishing it here. Between 2003 and 2009, most music purchased through Apple’s iTunes store was locked using Apple’s FairPlay digital restrictions management (DRM) software, which is designed to prevent users from copying music they purchased. Apple did not seem particularly concerned by the fact that FairPlay was never effective at stopping unauthorized distribution and was easily removed with publicly available tools. After all,…

The startup is based around an app we are building called RomancR that will bring the sharing economy directly into your bedrooms and romantic lives. When launched, RomancR will bring the kind of market-driven convenience and efficiency that Uber has brought to ride sharing, and that AirBnB has brought to room sharing, directly into the most frustrating and inefficient domain of our personal lives. RomancR is Uber for romance and sex. Here’s how it will work: Users will view profiles of nearby RomancR users that match any…

    Mika recently brought up the Japanese modern legend of Kuchisake-onna (口裂け女). For background, I turned to the English Wikipedia article on Kuchisake-onna which had the following to say about the figure (the description matches Mika’s memory): According to the legend, children walking alone at night may encounter a woman wearing a surgical mask, which is not an unusual sight in Japan as people wear them to protect others from their colds or sickness. The woman will stop the child and ask, “Am I pretty?” If the child answers no, the child is killed with a pair of…

    So the Ubuntu Community Council has asked Jonathan Riddell to step down as a leader in the Kubuntu community. The reasoning for this can be broadly summarized as “poor conduct”. Some members of the community have concluded that this is something of a hatchet job from the Community Council, that Jonathan’s insistence to get answers to tough questions (e.g. licensing, donations) has resulted in the Community Council booting him out. I don’t believe this is true. Just because the Community Council has not provided an extensive docket of evidence behind their decision does not equate to…

    Companies, communities, families, clubs, and other clumps of humans all have some inherent social dynamics. At a simple level there are leaders and followers, but in reality the lines are rarely as clear as that. Many leaders, with a common example being some founders, have tremendous vision and imagination, but lack the skills to translate that vision into actionable work. Many followers need structure to their efforts, but are dynamic and creative in the execution. Thus, the social dynamic in organizations needs a little more nuance. This is where traditional management hierarchies break…

    Today we celebrate 20 years since the first release of Qt was uploaded to sunsite.unc.edu and announced, six days later, at comp.os.linux.announce. Over these years, Qt evolved from a two person Norwegian project to a full-fledged, social-technical world-wide organism that underpins free software projects, profitable companies, universities, government-related organizations, and more. It's been an exciting journey. From the early days of Trolltech in 1999, through an evolution of licensing (from the original FreeQt, to QPL, to GPL, to LGPL today), corporate cooperation from Nokia and Digia,…

  • Debian 8.0 Jessie officially released

    25 Apr 2015 | 6:22 pm
    After two years of development, Debian 8.0 (code-named “Jessie”) has finally been officially released. The most obvious changes will of course be the updated stable packages, but there is a lot more to look at as well. Debian 8.0 replaces SysV with systemd as the default init system. This change was seen by many as a very controversial move and was the subject of a quite a few heated debates as well as the creation of a fork. Regardless of people’s opinions of it, systemd has pretty much become the de-facto standard init system on the majority of GNU/Linux distributions these days. The…
  • rmlint: quickly detect and remove lint from your machine

    I came across a useful program called rmlint, a very fast GPLv3 licensed non-interactive tool which detects and removes duplicates and other lint from your filesystem, last week and finally had a moment to give it a try. My initial impressions are quite good. It did everything that it said it could do and quickly freed up a few gigabytes of space in my various miscellaneous storage directories within my /home folder (everyone has at least one of those, right? haha). It does things a little differently than other system cleaners in that it doesn’t actually remove the files itself. Instead,…

Mechanical keyboards on the other hand use actual physical switches and springs underneath their keys. Depending on the switch used they also generally give you nice tactile…

    13 Dec 2011 | 3:27 am
    LinuxSecurity.com: Using password guessing as an attack vector. Over the years we've been taught a strong password must be long and complex to be considered secure. Some of us have taken that notion to heart and always ensure our passwords are strong. But some don't give a second thought to the complexity or length of our password.

    So the Ubuntu Community Council has asked Jonathan Riddell to step down as a leader in the Kubuntu community. The reasoning for this can be broadly summarized as “poor conduct”. Some members of the community have concluded that this is something of a hatchet job from the Community Council, that Jonathan’s insistence to get answers to tough questions (e.g. licensing, donations) has resulted in the Community Council booting him out. I don’t believe this is true. Just because the Community Council has not provided an extensive docket of evidence behind their decision does not equate to…

    Companies, communities, families, clubs, and other clumps of humans all have some inherent social dynamics. At a simple level there are leaders and followers, but in reality the lines are rarely as clear as that. Many leaders, with a common example being some founders, have tremendous vision and imagination, but lack the skills to translate that vision into actionable work. Many followers need structure to their efforts, but are dynamic and creative in the execution. Thus, the social dynamic in organizations needs a little more nuance.

  • Heads Up: spamd(8) PF Rule Change

    19 May 2015 | 1:49 am
    With a recent commit, Reyk Flöter (reyk@) flipped the switch on spamd(8)'s pf interfacement: hange spamd to use divert-to instead of rdr-to. divert-to has many advantages over rdr-to for proxies. For example, it is much easier to use, requires less code, does not depend on /dev/pf, works in-band without the asynchronous lookup (DIOCNATLOOK ioctl), saves us from additional port allocations by the rdr/NAT code, and even avoids potential collisions and race conditions that could theoretically happen with the lookup. Heads up: users will have to update their spamd PF rules from rdr-to to…
  • OpenBSD 5.7 CD 2 Incorrectly Pressed

    15 May 2015 | 8:37 am
    OpenBSD project leader Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) outlined some issues with the CD plant, which led to an incorrectly-finished CD 2, some of which were, unfortunately, shipped prior to the issue being found. Sadly, CD2 of the OpenBSD 5.7 shipped in a broken fashion due to errors at the manufacturing plant. Two mistakes were made. In the rush after the first error, this error was not caught in time. Many people have received (or will soon receive) their package with this broken disc. Orders which have not yet shipped are being held back... because... A repaired disc is on the way from the plant.

This will cause major issues for tech gadgets such as the Chromecast, GoPro, Parrot’s Lineup of Drones (Bebop, ARDrone, etc). Basically all of these devices create a WiFi network that has no internet connectivity and in Android 5.1 the behavior is to automatically disconnect from these networks. I confirmed this on a Bebop and Chromecast so far as have other users. Yikes! Wonder how many months until Google…

  • Useful sed tricks to customize configuration files

    Peter Leung
    26 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    A typical software installation goes like this. You install the software using apt-get install or yum install.Then, you manually edit the software's configuration file in order to satisfy your requirements. If you have to repeat the install on multiple machines, this quickly becomes tedious. Instead of manually editing the file, I run a text manipulation command such as sed or awk to make the required changes. Then, I script the procedure by inserting the commands in a bash script file. The scripting of configuration changes serves multiple purposes:It is a permanent record of the…
  • How to add and delete a user from a Linux group

    Peter Leung
    12 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    Being in the right Linux group expedites many system administration tasks, and will save you time. For example, the Apache web server logs have the following file ownership and permissions. # ls -al /var/log/apache2/*.log -rw-r----- 1 root adm 882984 May 11 12:14 /var/log/apache2/access.log -rw-r----- 1 root adm 418 May 11 01:55 /var/log/apache2/error.log ... To read the Apache logs, you need root permissions. However, there is a shortcut that does not require you to run sudo. Note that adm - the admin group for Debian-based systems - is the group owner of the log files. So, if you become a…
  • How to schedule background jobs using crontab

    Peter Leung
    29 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    The cron daemon is a great user tool to automate tasks that don't require human intervention. Users pre-specify jobs to run in the background at particular times, for example, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2am. To use cron, each user creates his own crontab ('cron table') file. The command to examine one's crontab file is crontab -l. $ crontab -l MAILTO=commandolinux@gmail.com 0 2 * * 1,3,5 /home/peter/backups/backupWP.sh 2>&1 The MAILTO line specifies the email address to which cron sends the output of command execution. Please refer to my earlier post on how to set up an SMTP…

    28 Apr 2015 | 12:07 pm
    If you want to learn Java programming, here is your perfect opportunity to take an on-line course. EdX, the popular MOOC (Massive Open On-line Course) provider, is hosting a course on Introduction to Programming with Java.

  • Configuring Monit: a free system monitoring and recovery tool

    Peter Leung
    23 Apr 2015 | 12:46 pm
    Why Monit?One morning, I went on-line to check my WordPress website. Lo and behold, I saw this error: 'Error establishing a database connection.' My website had been down for 4 hours, luckily in the middle of the night. I used a free website monitoring service called StatusCake. Sure enough, it did send me an email alerting me about this problem. But, sending an email at 2am was not helpful in solving the problem. What I really needed was a tool that not only detected when the database process went down, but would also restart the process without human intervention. Monit is such a tool. For…
