Aurelien and the Arm port

Or: Everything was better in the past! I don’t know whether the change from Firefox to Iceweasel or the upgrade to v2.x caused this, but Firefox/Iceweasel doesn’t run anymore on my PowerPC: [ij@muaddib:]~$ firefox The application ‘Gecko’ lost its connection to the display :0.0; most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed… Continue reading Aurelien and the Arm port

Iceweasel? I want my Firefox back!

Some time ago I blogged about madwifi and my Netgear WG311T. Well, it still sucks. I’ve setup a serial console to my PowerPC box now and have now some debugging output, when the madwifi driver horribly fails: wifi0: rx FIFO overrun; resetting wifi0: ath_reset: unable to reset hardware: ‘Hardware didn’t respond as expected’ (HAL status… Continue reading Iceweasel?

Linux, WLAN, Netgear and Madwifi – a neverending story

Maybe some of you have already noticed, that there’s a new section (flavour) on Buildd.Net called skolelinux, which maps to etch-skolelinux and has currently i386 and powerpc included. This was just a quick addition and maybe there’re are some things wrong. Please let me know about those when you find something.

But I didn’t know at that time that drupal has been orphaned and a grave bug has been filed to prevent it from being released with Etch. Very, very bad… However, I’ve evaluated serendipity yesterday evening,… Continue reading Buildd.Net: etch-skolelinux added

Blog migrating considered harmful

I’ll move the drupal installation to a new host in the next days. So, it’s somewhat likely that somthing will break. Sorry for that in advance… 🙂

Migrating to a new server

Ok, Dunc-Tanc (DT) is being discussed everywhere like here, here or here. The reason for discussion is the amount of US-$ 6000 (or EUR 4800, as Marc Haber calculated). For many of the readers that is really, really much money for just a month. Maybe it’s even close to a yearly income in some other… Continue reading Migrating to a new server

PGCluster debs

Dear Lazyweb… For a project I need to setup two freeradius server with a PostgreSQL database backend. It’s intended that the freeradius server are accessing their database backends locally, i.e. on the same machine. Of course, the two database needs to be in sync. And now there’s a problem: each radius server needs to write… Continue reading PGCluster debs

PostgreSQL and Replication

Or: The Consequences of that awful Vancouver Proposal… It’s no news that I’m no big fan of the Vancouver Proposal. It’s aiming into the wrong direction, IMHO, and is not very well thought through. It’s basically a master plan of dropping archs. Anyway, the more m68k is diverting from the other archs after exclusion of… Continue reading PostgreSQL and Replication

Consequences on not being an Release Arch anymore

Basically, this is my first new entry in s9y after announcing the migration from Drupal to Serendipity. There are more to come, for sure. 😉 Please feel free to leave comments, if you like…
