Gentoo VM on SmartOS hypervisor

I wanted to have a small, “minimalistic” VMs on my hypervisor, so they would have very little footprint on resources. I decided to go with systemd and btrfs for system & service management and main/only filesystem respectively. The only considered distributions up for that task (at least from my point of view) were Debian and […]

graylog2 systemd scripts

Recently I’ve been migrating to new infrastructure — I will most definitely write about it more in separate post(s) — and I found myself in need of some centralized log server.

A lot of stuff is going on in my PPA lately, including its new, redesigned website. Many packages has been removed, added and updated to the latest versions, so I won’t be able to cover all of these changes.
