It was about time to clean a little bit up my PPA. What was removed and briefly why: audacious: latest stable release available in deb-multimedia repositories deja-dup: newer version available in official repositories geary: newer version available in official repositories revelation: latest version available in official repositories vala-0.22: newer version available in official repositories As […]
Snappy Ubuntu Core has been announced two days ago. I was counting that sooner or later there will be some alternative to Project Atomic and here we are. What I found a bit surprising was the immediate compatibility with Microsoft Azure. I also found this statement: Microsoft loves Linux[…] Creepy. All is fine and whatever, […]
This is a second post of the series on minimal Linux VMs deployments on SmartOS hypervisor. Same as in case of Gentoo I decided to go with systemd and btrfs for system & service management and main/only filesystem respectively.
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 […]
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. I played a bit with different tools and eventually settled with graylog2. Current setup looks as follows: First node: graylog2-server + elasticsearch + mongodb […]
Awhile back I decided to finally publish my dotfiles. It turned out that it’s not necessarily such good idea to split config files into so many small chunks — it’s harder to maintain when they are split like that. Few days ago I stubmled upon GitHub ❤ ~/ where I learned about rcm.
Since I’m going to write more about LVM, I decided to start with quick summary of what I’ve already posted awhile back: LVM Logical Volume Manager Repartitioning LUKS-crypted LVM on Debian Extending LVM & FS online with new disk Updating GRUB device.map file after adding a new disk Migrating to new Logical Volume Extend LV […]
Sure, I could just install Juju locally, but unfortunately I have no Ubuntu box to do that. I’m working on RHEL 6 (which sucks on desktop, BTW), so I figured that the easiest and fastest way will be by engaging vagrant to whole process.
I’m always kind of fascinated when I read about other people’s configuration and tools that they use on daily basis. And how they use them. It might be because it’s the easiest way to actually learn something from them. You can also establish some idea on the skills that this guy or gal possess.
Recently I’ve been playing a little bit with elementaryOS Luna. I already wrote my thoughts about this particular OS some time ago, so I won’t go into details. I’m mentioning this only as an explanation for “why the hell this PPA was not updated for such a long time” (;
