Official ICS 4.0.4 on Galaxy Tab 10.1 (GT-P7500)

This is just a quick heads-up. Sure, Android 4.0.x and 4.1.x were available for quite some time via CM9 and CM10, but for the official one Galaxy Tab 10.1 users needed to wait really long time. Now, you can go and grab ICS 4.0.4 from SamMobile for example. Few things worth noting:

  • CWM 6.0.1.0 by Pershoot is working without any issues (older ones from 5 series should work too).
  • Rooting is easy as always, though you will need to install both packages for ARM CPU from this site (in CWM, of course): http://androidsu.com/superuser/
  • Reverting from 4.1.x (CM10) to official ICS is not an issue, as long as you make factory reset.
  • Basically 4.0.x line is much faster, smoother and more responsive than HB 3.2.

Enjoy! (:

PPA status: Audacious 3.3-beta1, Revelation 0.4.14 and Xournal 0.4.7

It’s been awhile, I know, but there were few reasons for that and I will write about it somewhere in the near future.

Mostly what I’ve done in the last few days:

  • Lots of cleanings – all old and no longer supported packages were cleaned from repositories.
  • Preparation for movement to a new server – thanks to that,  repository will be much more reliable, properly backed up and blazing  fast (I kid you not!).
  • Bringing up new build environment – much more powerful machine  (which saves me a lot of time on building packages), pretty much no  space limitation for my needs.

So, not a lot of actual building, isn’t it? But even though, for  purposes of this post, I’ve build three new packages (I wanted to test new environment too): Audacious 3.3 Beta 1 (Beta 2 is already released and I will build and upload it tomorrow), Revelation 0.4.14 (latest upstream release) and Xournal 0.4.7 (latest upstream release).

If you have any package suggestions, that you would like to see in Debian, leave a comment, tweet me or drop me a line on  e-mail/facebook/g+ with suggestions (:

PAC: the best SSH manager for Linux

Awhile ago, on my G+ account, I asked following question:

Dear lazyweb. I’m looking for some SSH connection manager for Linux with tabs and logging. Any suggestions?

There were few answers with suggestions, however none of them offered ultimate solution for all mentioned points. Today, I found the answer myself, and that answer is PAC Manager. Just read on its website what this wonderful piece of software is capable of and don’t forget to have a look on screenshots section too. Personally, I will only tell you, that you can find download links here, and besides sources for self-compilation, there are DEB and RPM packages ready.
