Steve Engledow (stilvoid): It turns

Planet ALUG - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 10:24

Over the past few months, I've mentioned to a few people that I like the idea of Firefox OS and that I've used the emulator and been fairly impressed. Well I've just put my money where my mouth is and ordered a Geeksphone revolution.

I'll admit that the decision to buy the phone wasn't purely to support Firefox OS; my hand was forced and I faced a dilemma:

After dropping my nexus 4 and cracking the screen (leaving the touchscreen only partially working), I found out that a repair with genuine parts would cost me nearly £100. My N4 being quite old now - and fairly crashy with lollipop - I couldn't quite justify the repair cost.

To be honest, I've been enjoying living without a usable phone except for the odd rare moments when I've needed to make a call while out. For that reason I decided that a brand new top of the range phone was out of the question.

I didn't want to go as far as getting a feature phone (I'm so used to having a smart phone now) and the Revolution seems like it offers a good compromise on cost vs. features.

So the intention is to live with Firefox OS but if it turns out to be ghastly, the phone will happily run AOSP and I can switch back and forth at will - yes, it even dual boots.

I'm sure I'll waffle on about my first impressions when it arrives...

Andy Smith: Home file server / disk enclosure troubles

Planet HantsLUG - Wed, 01/04/2015 - 20:47

On March 26th the file server here at home started resetting one of its ATA links over and over, in a couple of bursts each hour. Like this:

Despite the masses of link resets a couple of times an hour it all seemed to be working still, and it was a few days before I looked into it further.

The hardware is an HP Microserver with a Sans Digital 8-bay SATA disk enclosure connected over 2x eSATA. The Microserver’s four internal SATA slots are used for something else; these messages relate to the two eSATA links (ata5 and ata6) to the disk enclosure. There’s seven disks in there, six of which form a btrfs filesystem which holds the majority of files we use here at home (yes, I’ve heard about ZFSonLinux. No, I’m not interested in using it yet).

I have never been too happy with that Sans Digital enclosure:

  • Half the LEDs on the front have never worked. So you only get link lights for one SATA link.
  • As a more general example of the above, the mechanical build quality just seems bad. It’s really flimsy.
  • It’s pretty slow to detect disks and spews errors in the dmesg as it does.
  • It’s done this thing before where it resets the SATA link over and over, but the problem mysteriously went away when everything was power-cycled.

So anyway, plan of action:

  1. Try rebooting everything.
  2. If no joy, buy a new enclosure from somewhere and try to make it not another one of those.

It was 30th March before I got around to giving that a go. There was a short period of terror where the Microserver abruptly declared

No boot device. Insert boot floppy.

but amusingly this turned out to be because the BIOS was set to prefer booting off a USB disk, and I had left my Sansa Clip plugged in to charge it. It was trying to boot off of an mp3 player.

Sadly once we did actually get past GruB things were not much happier. SATA links resetting pretty much continuously, to the point were it couldn’t even get to the end of Linux attaching the disks as SCSI devices. Unplugging the eSATA cables entirely left the Microserver happy to boot with no issues other than all my data being missing!

A process of elimination (take all disks out, boot, put disks back in one by one and boot each time until everything complains) allowed me to identify one particular disk that was really upsetting things. I was able to boot without that disk inserted, and I could mount the btrfs filesystem in degraded mode as it’s a RAID-1 for both data and metadata.

At this point I decided to push my luck and try inserting that one problematic disk again. As soon as I did it all went crazy again, and the link resets caused a bunch more devices to be ejected by Linux. I was left with a btrfs filesystem with three remaining devices that had mounted itself read-only due to read errors.

So, is it the disk or is the the enclosure?

I don’t have a spare enclosure so it’s rather difficult to stress test that, but bearing in mind that I’m not too happy with it anyway I decided to buy a new enclosure anyway and investigate the existing one later. This time I decided to try this thing, which appears to be a CFi-B7886CM. No I’ve never heard of them either but I doubt it is any different to what Sans Digital buy and slap their branding on.

It’s quite a bit cheaper than the Sans Digital unit, though obviously it only has one eSATA link. I’m not too bothered by that as I doubt that any four of my disks were exceeding 3Gbps or whatever, so yeah, whatever, I’ll put six disks on one link. It might even be a benefit if I want to add another one of these enclosures later, as there’s no more room in the Microserver for more eSATA cards.

While that was on order I got things back up and running with the five disks and had the btrfs filesystem running degraded (yes, I do have backups). I attached that suspect disk to another machine via a USB dock and was able to repeatedly read it all, perform SMART long tests on it without error, etc.

The disk caddies are almost identical, and are interchangeable.

The new enclosure arrived today and my first impressions of it are fairly positive. In terms of appearance and dimensions it’s almost identical to the Sans Digital one. In fact the disk caddies look identical bar the colour of the plastic handle, and are interchangeable, which saved me the hassle of having to unscrew 28 screws (seven disks, four per disk) and screw them in again. It definitely feels bit more sturdy though.

On boot for some reason I expected the btrfs filesystem to not automatically mount. It had been running with a device missing for nearly two days, and in that state you have to do

# mount -odegraded /srv/tank

to get it to mount, so I was thinking that even with all disks inserted it would decide that the out-of-date disk was unacceptable and require manual intervention to mount it. Well, I was wrong about that. It automatically mounted it and then immediately started complaining:

It’s nice to have all the blinkenlights blinking.

This is apparently what you would normally expect from btrfs fixing the out-of-date metadata from the other copy.

Everything seems okay; there are no read errors and no more link resets, and a cursory inspection of important data is matching up with checksums from last good backup. Oh, and all the SATA link/activity LEDs work!

I have to now:

  • do a btrfs scrub to make sure all the data on sdk is correct.
  • investigate the Sans Digital enclosure to see if I can replicate its brokenness.

While we’re at it, is there a brand of label tape that doesn’t dry up and peel off?

Electronically I can’t tell if it’s any different to the old enclosure (aside from only having one SATA link, not two).

Comparing the dmesg between “SCSI subsystem initialized” and the last SCSI disk being attached, for the old and the new enclosure I see a few interesting differences. The new one is a little bit faster, and has fewer weird errors (failed to IDENTIFY, etc.).

Old:

[ 5.818389] ata5.15: Port Multiplier 1.1, 0x1095:0x3726 r23, 6 ports, feat 0x1/0x9

New:

[ 8.116807] ata6.15: Port Multiplier 1.2, 0x197b:0x575f r0, 15 ports, feat 0x5/0xf

So the new one supports Port Multiplier v1.2 as opposed to v1.1. Presumably that is good news. I wonder what feat 0x1/0x9 vs feat 0x5/0xf means?

With the old enclosure the SATA links seem to come up as a mixture of 1.5 and 3.0Gbps, and multiple times as the links are reset:

Hmm, probably should investigate why /dev/sd[a-d] all have their write cache disabled.

Jonathan McDowell: Shipping my belongings across the globe

Planet ALUG - Tue, 31/03/2015 - 15:35

I previously wrote about tracking a ship around the world, but never followed up with the practical details involved with shipping my life from the San Francisco Bay Area back to Belfast. So here they are, in the hope they provide a useful data point for anyone considering a similar move.

Firstly, move out. I was in a one bedroom apartment in Fremont, CA. At the time I was leaving the US I didn’t have anywhere for my belongs to go - the hope was I’d be back in the Bay Area, but there was a reasonable chance I was going to end up in Belfast or somewhere in England. So on January 24th 2014 I had my all of my belongings moved out and put into storage, pending some information about where I might be longer term. When I say all of my belongings I mean that; I took 2 suitcases and everything else went into storage. That means all the furniture for probably a 2 bed apartment (I’d moved out of somewhere a bit larger) - the US doesn’t really seem to go in for the concept of a furnished lease the same way as the UK does.

I had deliberately picked a moving company that could handle the move out, the storage and the (potential) shipping. They handed off to a 3rd party for the far end bit, but that was to be expected. Having only one contact to deal with throughout the process really helped.

Fast forward 8 months and on September 21st I contacted my storage company to ask about getting some sort of rough shipping quote and timescales to Belfast. The estimate came back as around a 4-6 week shipping time, which was a lot faster than I was expecting. However it turned out this was the slow option. On October 27th (delay largely due to waiting for confirmation of when I’d definitely have keys on the new place) I gave the go ahead.

Container pickup (I ended up with exclusive use of a 20ft container - not quite full, but not worth part shipment) from the storage location was originally due on November 7th. Various delays at the Port of Oakland meant this didn’t happen until November 17th. It then sat in Oakland until December 2nd. At that point the ETA into Southampton was January 8th. Various other delays, including a week off the coast of LA (yay West Coast Port Backups) meant that the ship finally arrived in Southampton on January 13th. It then had to get to Belfast and clear customs. On January 22nd 2015, 2 days shy of a year since I’d seen them, my belongings and I were reunited.

So, on the face of it, the actual time on the ship was only slightly over 6 weeks, but all of the extra bits meant that the total time from “Ship it” to “I have it” was nearly 3 months. Which to be honest is more like what I was expecting. The lesson: don’t forget to factor in delays at every stage.

The relocation cost in the region of US$8000. It was more than I’d expected, but far cheaper than the cost of buying all my furniture again (plus the fact there were various things I couldn’t easily replace that were in storage). That cost didn’t cover the initial move into storage or the storage fees - it covered taking things out, packing them up for shipment and everything after that. Including delivery to a (UK) 3rd floor apartment at the far end and insurance. It’s important to note that I’d included this detail before shipment - the quote specifically mentioned it, which was useful when the local end tried to levy an additional charge for the 3rd floor aspect. They were fine once I showed them the quote as including that detail.

Getting an entire apartment worth of things I hadn’t seen in so long really did feel a bit like a second Christmas. I’d forgotten a lot of the things I had, and it was lovely to basically get a “home in a container” delivered.

Mick Morgan: the russians are back

Planet ALUG - Mon, 30/03/2015 - 09:50

About four years ago I was getting a huge volume of backscatter email to the non-existent address info@baldric.net. After a month or so it started to go quiet and eventually I got hardly any hits on that (or any other) address. A couple of weeks or so ago they came back. My logs for weeks ending 15 March, 22 March and 29 March show 92%, 96% and 94% respectively of all email to my main mail server is failed connection attempts from Russian domains to dear old non-existent “info”. Out of curiosity I decided to capture some of the inbound mails. Most were in Russian, but the odd one or two were in (broken) english. Below is a typical example:

From: “Olga”
To: Subject: Are you still looking for love? Look at my photos!
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2015 15:22:08 +0300
X-Mailer: Microsoft Windows Live Mail 16.4.3528.331

Sunshine!
Are you still looking for love? I will be very pleased to become your half and save you from loneliness. My name is Olga, 25 years old.
For now I live in Russia, but it’s a bad time in my country, and I think about moving to another state.
I need a safer place for life, is your country good for that?
If you are interested and want to get in touch with me, just look at this international dating site.
Hope to see you soon!
Just click here!

Sadly, I believe that many recipients of such emails will indeed, “click here”. Certainly enough to further propagate whatever malware was used to compromise the end system which actually sent the above email.

“You really should revive Baldric you know. Everyone will believe it if you just say you were kidnapped by aliens, and then you can just resume where you left off.”

So Peter, this one is just for you. Oh, and Happy Birthday too.

Alan Pope: Making a Portable Persistent Ubuntu USB Stick

Planet HantsLUG - Wed, 25/03/2015 - 11:55

I recently wanted to make a slightly modified persistent bootable USB stick running a recent version Ubuntu. I made some notes and have put them here in case they’re useful to anyone else. It’s a bit of a manual process which could probably be streamlined / automated. This was just what I did as a one-off, take from it what you will.

USB3 sticks in a USB3 port work best as USB2 can be a bit on the slow side, especially for IO intensive operations like package installation or compiling.

Note: A few people have pointed out the fragility and short lifespan of USB sticks. This same procedure can be used to install on a hard disk or SSD in a USB enclosure. Once the image is copied to the external storage, simply use gparted to resize it up to take all available space.

The goal I had was to make an image which can be copied to USB stick to provide a persistent bootable Ubuntu SDK development environment. This could be useful for people who don’t run Ubuntu as their primary OS (Yes, these people exist, I know right!?) but want to dabble in Ubuntu application development. It’s also handy if you’re running an App Dev School where the computers aren’t yours, or run some other OS. The students could potentially take the sticks away with the full OS and all their work on. Just make the image and then copy it to multiple sticks before the class starts.

I also wanted to make it ask for locale and user details on first boot, so it could be easily configured and used in any language. This is pretty easy given the Ubuntu installer has all of that built in.

I used Ubuntu 14.10 i386 (but also tried with Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS) and an 8GB USB stick which leaves a couple of GB over for work. Obviously a larger stick gives more space to the user. It turned out though that using an 8GB USB stick was a bit tight for SDK work. I ended up with 76MB left after creating one 15.04 armhf kit. Maybe 8GB is good for desktop and qml/html5 only development (although still a bit tight), but not for cross architecture or other binary builds. 16GB would have enough room for multiple kits and could build binaries for devices.

Some of these steps can be done in the background while you do other things. It’s not a massively time consuming task if you have a decent connection and fast USB stick / hard disk, but as I mentioned, is a bit manual.

The result is a USB stick which you can boot from and work off with data saved to the stick. You can optionally enable home directory encryption during the final end-user setup if that’s important to you.

Step 1 – Prep

Have an 8GB (or larger) USB 3 stick handy. I am using Kingston 8 GB USB 3.0 DataTraveler G4 Flash Drive and later Kingston Technology 16GB Data Traveler G4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive. Faster sticks are available of course, but I wanted something cheap to prototype on.
Have a laptop with a USB 3 port (or ports) and supports kvm. I did all this on my Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (15.04) Thinkpad X220 laptop which has a single USB3 port.
Make a directory on a local disk to store scratch image – will need 16GB or more space
Install qemu-kvm and gddrescue on host
Download ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-i386.iso from http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.10/. (torrent link).

Step 2 – Installation of base system

Make a blank image on local disk
dd if=/dev/zero of=./disk_image bs=1M count=7500
This should result in a file a bit under 8GB.
e.g.

alan@deep-thought:/data/usb⟫ dd if=/dev/zero of=./disk_image bs=1048576 count=7500
7500+0 records in
7500+0 records out
7864320000 bytes (7.9 GB) copied, 34.468 s, 228 MB/s

Install Ubuntu into the image using kvm
sudo kvm -m 2048 -cdrom ~/Downloads/ubuntu-14.10-desktop-i386.iso -hda ./disk_image -boot d
This should boot off the ISO

At the A11Y (person = keyboard) icon, hit space

At the boot menu, choose language (this is just language for the installer, user will later choose which language to use)

Press F3 and choose keyboard layout

Press F4 and choose OEM install

Pick “Install” from the menu.

Follow the installer prompts as normal. I configured with no swap, but use the entire disk for an ext4 volume for the root filesystem.
Set a password for the oem user, which will be thrown away later, and the user will get to set their own password.
Shut-down at the end

Step 3 – Install the SDK

This is the part where you make the modifications to the image (if any). I wanted to install the Ubuntu SDK.

Optionally at this point, make a backup of your cleanly installed Ubuntu 14.10.1 system
cp ./disk_image ./ubuntu_14.10_install_backup

Boot the previously created install (note the additional options – these are handy)
sudo kvm -m 2048 -hda ./disk_image -chardev stdio,id=mon -mon mon
Once booted to the desktop, in the terminal on the host at the (qemu) prompt type this to switch the VM to the console (which is faster to do stuff than the GUI ):-
(qemu) sendkey ctrl-alt-f1
Login to the tty with the oem user/password set in Step 2.
Follow the usual guide to install the SDK and update the system:-
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove

Shut down the vm
sudo shutdown -h now

Optionally at this point, make a backup of your “SDK-installed” (or modified in whatever way you choose) OEM mode Ubuntu 14.10 system
cp ./disk_image ./ubuntu_14.10_install_sdk_oem_backup

Note: At this point you can boot the disk image and do further customisation – maybe adding other packages which may be of use, but I stopped here.

Step 4 – Prepare the OEM image for ‘shipping’

This is the point where we flip the switch in the installed image before handing it off to another user. On first boot they will get prompted to set locale and configure a new user.

Boot the previously created install which has the SDK installed
sudo kvm -m 2048 -hda ./disk_image
Click the “Prepare for shipping to end user” icon on the desktop – this sets the system to be ready for the first-boot experience for a new user
Shut down the system

Step 5 – Test this all worked

Make a copy of the master image for testing
cp ./disk_image ./testing_oem_install
Boot the test image to try it out
sudo kvm -m 2048 -hda ./testing_oem_install
At this point you should be prompted for the usual post-install setup tasks including language / locale / username & password. Setup as you would a normal machine
Open the SDK (or whatever you installed), test it all works
I tried creating a kit and do other SDK related things
Shutdown when done
Delete the test image
rm ./testing_oem_install

Step 6 – Copy the OEM image to a USB stick for shipping / use

Now we have a ‘final’ image (and optionally some backups) we can copy this to a stick for use by us / someone else. We can of course make more than one by doing this step multiple times with different sticks. On my system as you can see it took ~30 mins to copy the image to the stick. Faster, more expensive sticks may be better, these were pretty cheap.

Copy the disk image to an appropriately sized USB stick
sudo ddrescue -d -D --force ./disk_image /dev/sdX

e.g.

alan@deep-thought:/data/usb⟫ time sudo ddrescue -D -d --force disk_image /dev/sdc
GNU ddrescue 1.19
Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
rescued: 7864 MB, errsize: 0 B, current rate: 1966 kB/s
ipos: 7864 MB, errors: 0, average rate: 4884 kB/s
opos: 7864 MB, run time: 26.83 m, successful read: 0 s ago
Finished

real 26m51.682s
user 0m1.212s
sys 0m30.084s

Step 7 – Test & use the stick

Put the USB stick in a computer set to boot from external media.
Test that you get a desktop and the usual OEM prompts you got in Step 5.
If that works then you can do step 5 again for the same stick or as many sticks as you have.

Success!

Comments and suggestions welcome!

Alan Pope: FOSDEM 2015 Field Report

Planet HantsLUG - Wed, 18/03/2015 - 13:40

A little late, but here’s my report from attending FOSDEM 2015 back at the start of February.

I’ve been to FOSDEM a few times in the past, but not for the last few years. It happened to co-incide with other events, or other family things took priority and then got out of the habit, so I’d not ended up going for 6 years or so!

This year at the last minute I applied for some funds to go, was accepted and made the most of it. I’ve listed below all the talks & sessions I went to, with some brain dump notes I took about some of them. At the bottom I listed some sessions which I didn’t enjoy or get a lot out of, but are listed for completion. I’ve also linked directly to the videos of the talks if they’re available at the time of writing. If not I’ve linked to the directory they should appear in at some point in the future.

A GPS watch made of free software and hardware – Federico Vaga, Matthieu Cattin
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/main_track-hardware/gps_watch__CAM_ONLY.mp4

Recycle your Android devices for anything: run real Linux on them – David Greaves
Talk video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-embedded/sailfishos.mp4

  • Room was pretty packed with quite a few Jolla / SailfishOS friendly people at the front – managed to score myself a Jolla beanie hat from them
  • I was interested in this talk because it was focussed mostly on porting Mer & SailfishOS to Android devices.
  • We have a similar porting guide in Ubuntu but ours was outdated and inaccurate. This was fixed recently.
  • The Mer project had a nice overview of ports status online (https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris), which I’ve shamelessly stolen for Ubuntu (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uUHF463g4f4L5ljWZf0l7b4VAevM-twHag4ZoEd_TNc/edit?usp=sharing)
  • Interested in the community they’re building specifically around porting – dedicated irc channel, irc meetings and real world meet-ups are something we should probably consider for our (Ubuntu) porters because right now I think our porters feel a bit helpless at times

Are distributions really boring and a solved problem? – Lucas Nussbaum
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-distributions/distributions_boring_solved_problem.mp4

  • Illuminating talk about some of the problems the Debian project faces currently
  • As I’m not a Debian developer it was interesting to me to learn a bit about the Debian Sausage Factory and some of the issues they/we face

GCompris goes Qt Quick with the help of KDE – Bruno Coudoin
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-desktops/gcompris_goes_qt_quick_with_the_help_of_kde__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • A quick talk from Bruno about the work he’s done to port GCompris to the Qt framework
  • Learned that the development model for GCompris includes using In-App-Purchases on non-free platforms (Google Play store) to fund development of Open Source projects.

Copyleft in Europe: How does copyleft interact with Exhaustion Of Rights – Amanda Brock, Andrew Katz
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-legal_and_policy_issues/copyleft_in_europe__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • This was a super fascinating and slightly complex legalese talk which I admit I didn’t completely follow, but Amanda and Andrew made it digestable for a layman such as myself

Fork and Ignore: Fighting a GPL Violation By Coding Instead – Bradley M. Kuhn
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-legal_and_policy_issues/fork_and_ignore__CAM_ONLY.mp4
Slides: http://ebb.org/bkuhn/talks/LinuxCon-North-America-2014/kallithea.html

  • Brilliant talk from Bradley, one of the highlights from FOSDEM. Slides above are from a different event, but same talk as far as I can tell.
  • Was enlightening to see an alternative way to deal with a GPL violation than the default which seems to be to take legal action and sue
  • Not all forks are bad

Ubuntu on phones and beyond – Michał Sawicz
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-desktops/ubuntu_on_phones_and_beyond__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • Michał gave a brief talk to a pretty packed room about the current state of Ubuntu for devices, and the future direction
  • Turned into more of a Q&A, which was beneficial as much of the audience had questions to ask
  • Was interesting to see some of the same questions come up again and again
  • Depressing to still get “Haha! LOL Amazon shills” comments and questions

Mobile == Web – Stormy Peters
Video: http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-desktops/mobile_web__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • Call to arms to developers to make their sites work well on the web for the next generation of smart phone users
  • Disappointed to see yet another Mozilla person preach about openness from the confines of a MacBook running OSX

Maintaining & Growing a technical community – Ali Spivak
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-mozilla/ud2218a_maintaining_growing_technical_community__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • Ali gave some illuminating stats about contributions to the Mozilla project and how that fluctuates over time
  • Lots of info about what motivates people to contribute to open source projects and Mozilla in particular
  • “Being open is no good if nobody can find your resources” – we (Ubuntu) have some fixes to do there

Internet all the things – using curl in your device – Daniel Stenberg
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-embedded/curl_device.mp4

  • This was one of my favourite talks from FOSDEM. Learning how many projects use a simple (hah) tool like curl
  • Even learned about some command line options in curl that I’d not seen or used before.
  • Worth a watch

Living on Mars: A Beginner’s Guide – Ryan MacDonald
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/keynotes/closing_fosdem__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • Fantastic talk to round off FOSDEM 2015. Ryan gave a fast-paced & entertaining talk about the Mars One mission plan and his part in it.

Porting Tizen:Common to open source hardware devices – Phil Coval
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-embedded/open_hw_tizen.mp4

  • Another porting talk (to go along with the Jolla one above) specifically talking about porting Tizen to Open Hardware
  • Interesting to hear about the Sunxi community build up around porting

Reached milestones and ongoing development on Replicant – Paul Kocialkowski
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-embedded/replicant_embedded_freedom.mp4

  • Fascinating talk detailing what lengths Paul goes to in order to develop a fully Free Software implementation of Android
  • In short, it’s not ‘finished’, and with the limited number of devices it’s possible to ‘open up’ probably won’t be any time soon

GNOME – creating ripples in the Linux eco-system – Sri Ramkrishna
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-desktops/gnome_creating_ripples_in_the_linux_ecosystem__CAM_ONLY.mp4

  • I was somewhat disappointed in this talk as it seemed to be billed as showcasing the best of what GNOME have done over the years, but came across as poorly thought through and the points a bit laboured.

Servo (the parallel web browser) and YOU! – Josh Matthews
Video:- http://video.fosdem.org/2015/devroom-mozilla/ud2218a_servo_and_you.mp4

  • Josh did a great job of showing the state of Servo right now and where gaps exist in the functionality, certainly worth watching for the Servo demo alone

Debian Bits: Debian is now welcoming applicants for Outreachy and GSoC Summer 2015

Planet HantsLUG - Mon, 16/03/2015 - 21:45

We'd like to reshare a post from Nicolas Dandrimont.

Hi all,

I am delighted to announce that Debian will be participating in the next round of Outreachy and GSoC, and that we are currently welcoming applications!

Outreachy helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get involved. The current round of internships is open to women (cis and trans), trans men, genderqueer people, and all participants of the Ascend Project regardless of gender.

Google Summer of Code is a global program, sponsored by Google, that offers post-secondary student developers ages 18 and older stipends to write code for various open source software projects.

Interns for both programs are granted a $5500 stipend (in three installments) allowing them to dedicate their summer to working full-time on Debian.

Our amazing team of mentors has listed their project ideas on the Debian wiki, and we are now welcoming applicants for both programs.

If you want to apply for an internship with Debian this summer, please fill out the template for either Outreachy or GSoC. If you’re eligible to both programs, we’ll encourage you to apply to both (using the same application), as Debian only has funds for a single Outreachy intern this round.

Don’t wait up! The application period for Outreachy ends March 24th, and the GSoC application period ends March 27th. We really want applicants to start contributing to their project before making our selection, so that mentors can get a feel of how working with their intern will be like for three months. The small task is a requirement for Outreachy, and we’re strongly encouraging GSoC applicants to abide by that rule too. To contribute in the best conditions, you shouldn’t wait for the last minute to apply :-)

I hope we’ll work with a lot of great interns this summer. If you think you’re up for the challenge, it’s time to apply! If you have any doubts, or any question, drop us a line on the soc-coordination mailing list or come by on our IRC channel (#debian-soc on irc.debian.org) and we’ll do our best to guide you.

    Jono Bacon: FirefoxOS and Developing Markets

    Planet WolvesLUG - Fri, 13/06/2014 - 00:40

    It seems Mozilla is targeting emerging markets and developing nations with $25 cell phones. This is tremendous news, and an admirable focus for Mozilla, but it is not without risk.

    Bringing simple, accessible technology to these markets can have a profound impact. As an example, in 2001, 134 million Nigerians shared 500,000 land-lines (as covered by Jack Ewing in Businessweek back in 2007). That year the government started encouraging wireless market competition and by 2007 Nigeria had 30 million cellular subscribers.

    This generated market competition and better products, but more importantly, we have seen time and time again that access to technology such as cell phones improves education, provides opportunities for people to start small businesses, and in many cases is a contributing factor for bringing people out of poverty.

    So, cell phones are having a profound impact in these nations, but the question is, will it work with FirefoxOS?

    I am not sure.

    In Mozilla’s defence, they have done an admirable job with FirefoxOS. They have built a powerful platform, based on open web technology, and they lined up a raft of carriers to launch with. They have a strong brand, an active and passionate community, and like so many other success stories, they already have a popular existing product (their browser) to get them into meetings and headlines.

    Success though is judged by many different factors, and having a raft of carriers and products on the market is not enough. If they ship in volume but get high return rates, it could kill them, as is common for many new product launches.

    What I don’t know is whether this volume/return-rate balance plays such a critical role in developing markets. I would imagine that return rates could be higher (such as someone who has never used a cell phone before taking it back because it is just too alien to them). On the other hand, I wonder if those consumers there are willing to put up with more quirks just to get access to the cell network and potentially the Internet.

    What seems clear to me is that success here has little to do with the elegance or design of FirefoxOS (or any other product for that matter). It is instead about delivering incredibly dependable hardware. In developing nations people have less access to energy (for charging devices) and have to work harder to obtain it, and have lower access to support resources for how to use new technology. As such, it really needs to just work. This factor, I imagine, is going to be more outside of Mozilla’s hands.

    So, in a nutshell, if the $25 phones fail to meet expectations, it may not be Mozilla’s fault. Likewise, if they are successful, it may not be to their credit.

    Jono Bacon: Community Management Training at OSCON, LinuxCon North America, and LinuxCon Europe

    Planet WolvesLUG - Wed, 11/06/2014 - 18:55

    I am a firm believer in building strong and empowered communities. We are in an age of a community management renaissance in which we are defining repeatable best practice that can be applied many different types of communities, whether internal to companies, external to volunteers, or a mix of both.

    I have been working to further this growth in community management via my books, The Art of Community and Dealing With Disrespect, the Community Leadership Summit, the Community Leadership Forum, and delivering training to our next generation of community managers and leaders.

    Last year I ran my first community management training course, and it was very positively received. I am delighted to announce that I will be running an updated training course at three events over the coming months.

    OSCON

    On Sunday 20th July 2014 I will be presenting the course at the OSCON conference in Portland, Oregon. This is a tutorial, so you will need to purchase a tutorial ticket to attend. Attendance is limited, so be sure to get to the class early on the day to reserve a seat!

    LinuxCon North America and Europe

    I am delighted to bring my training to the excellent LinuxCon events in both North America and Europe.

    Firstly, on Fri 22nd August 2014 I will be presenting the course at LinuxCon North America in Chicago, Illinois and then on Thurs Oct 16th 2014 I will deliver the training at LinuxCon Europe in Düsseldorf, Germany.

    Tickets are $300 for the day’s training. This is a steal; I usually charge $2500+/day when delivering the training as part of a consultancy arrangement. Thanks to the Linux Foundation for making this available at an affordable rate.

    Space is limited, so go and register ASAP:

    What Is Covered

    So what is in the training course?

    My goal with each training day is to discuss how to build and grow a community, including building collaborative workflows, defining a governance structure, planning, marketing, and evaluating effectiveness. The day is packed with Q&A, discussion, and I encourage my students to raise questions, challenge me, and explore ways of optimizing their communities. This is not a sit-down-and-listen-to-a-teacher-drone on kind of session; it is interactive and designed to spark discussion.

    The day is mapped out like this:

    • 9.00am – Welcome and introductions
    • 9.30am – The core mechanics of community
    • 10.00am – Planning your community
    • 10.30am – Building a strategic plan
    • 11.00am – Building collaborative workflow
    • 12.00pm – Governance: Part I
    • 12.30pm – Lunch
    • 1.30pm – Governance: Part II
    • 2.00pm – Marketing, advocacy, promotion, and social
    • 3.00pm – Measuring your community
    • 3.30pm – Tracking, measuring community management
    • 4.30pm – Burnout and conflict resolution
    • 5.00pm – Finish

    I will warn you; it is an exhausting day, but ultimately rewarding. It covers a lot of ground in a short period of time, and then you can follow with further discussion of these and other topics on our Community Leadership discussion forum.

    I hope to see you there!

    Dick Turpin: Old Tom

    Planet WolvesLUG - Thu, 05/06/2014 - 12:58
    So most of you will have heard my complaints about the difficulty in simply being able to order fish and chips from the chip shop? Well it would seem there are many other opportunities out there to eat up your lunch hour when trying to buy something.

    A well known UK car accessory outlet.

    Me: "Hi there can I have a Tom Tom Start 25 UK & ROF @ £99.99 please?"
    Assistant: "Do you want the maps for life?"
    Me: "Oh Christ, here we go! No thank you."
    Assistant: "Do you want the European maps?"
    Me: [Sobbing gently] "Could I just have the Tom Tom I asked for please?"
    Assistant: "OK I'll go and fetch one."

    Dick Turpin: Four coaches.

    Planet WolvesLUG - Sat, 31/05/2014 - 18:15
    I am living proof of those people who say "You know if I wrote a book about it nobody would believe it!"

    So I went to visit my daddy today in Birmingham QE hospital. I caught the train to Birmingham and had to change for University station. I spied a guy in blue offering platform information at Birmingham and made my way towards him. Mr Blue coat (I have no idea what they're called?) was just about to help a very smartly dressed guy who looked to be in his early twenties.

    Passenger: "Can you tell me where to go for the 13.20 to blah blah blah?" (I forget where now)
    Mr Blue: "Platform 7 sir."
    Passenger: "Platform 7? You sure?"
    Mr Blue: "Yes sir, platform 7"
    Passenger: "It says four coaches?"
    Mr Blue: "That's right sir."
    Passenger: "So there's no tracks at platform 7 then?"
    Mr Blue: "I'm Sorry?"
    Passenger: "I've never heard of coaches stopping at platforms before?"
    Mr Blue: "The train is made up of four coaches sir."

    Me and Mr Blue pissed ourselves silly once he was out of reasonable earshot.
