  • PPA installation on karmic

    I don’t know how long add-apt-repository has been around, but I’ve found it very useful for installing some of the bleeding edge stuff I want to test: $ for ppa in do-core team-xbmc nvidia-vdpau chromium-daily directhex/monoxide do sudo add-apt-repository ppa:$ppa done $ apt-get update $ apt-get install chromium-browser nvidia-glx-195 gnome-do xbmc monodevelop Is there anything […]

  • AoE root for KVM guests

    Intro So. I’m trying to get familiar with libvirt and friends. To this end, I’ve set up a Lucid virtual machine booting from PXE into an initrd environment which does a pivot_root to an AoE block device. The #virt channel on irc.oftc.net told me that in order to have libvirt provide PXE capability, I would […]

  • SAN configuration (AoE)

    With the help of a couple of friends, we’ve put a 4.5T RAID-5 machine on our network and I’m trying to figure out how to share the storage with the rest of the hosts. In the past, I have used NFS and CIFS/Samba to provide access to remote hosts. This has generally worked okay so […]

  • Planet ubuntu-us-wa

    Hello, google. I would like to introduce you to our planet. Planet, google. Google, Planet.

  • IRC logs for #ubuntu-us-wa

    Hello, google. I would like to introduce you to our chat logs. Chat logs, google. Google, chat logs. We will discuss things here such as Mono, GNOME and Debian. We may even use it to talk about work on the DLR project stuff.

  • Writing Free Software – Part 1

    There are a lot of folks who want to learn how to write software, I hear. So I’ll see if I can write something up about it. I’m going to assume that the reader has at their disposal an i386-class computer running Ubuntu or Debian. This will all probably work for other operating systems, but […]

  • An update

    I don’t really have anything really exciting to report, so y’all get to listen to me blather. And after all, that’s what blogs are for anyway, right? Zelda is turning 11 months old this month. This is still my favorite picture: I have been dishonorably discharged from Amazon. It seems that I am incompetent. It […]

  • IKVM basics

    So, I’m not much of a java guy, but I need to know how to get at the CLI, given a java interface. Let’s assume for brevity that one has an ubuntu machine available: $ sudo apt-get install ikvm ikvm-native icepick icepick-gcj …. $ mkdir hello-ikvm && cd hello-ikvm $ cat > hello.java class hello […]

  • From Lang.NET 2008 – Wednesday

    0843 Alrighty… we’re online. I checked in on #debian-mono, and meebey had plenty of suggestions on how to fix the .deb. 0923 There’s a talk on IronRuby. Microsoft is implementing a Ruby compiler on the CLI. It uses the DLR to do the heavy lifting. It is currently slow :) Contributions are being accepted for […]

  • From Lang.NET 2008 – Monday

    Monday 0815 So here I am. It snowed last night, so the drive down was a little crazy. I’ve arrived. They say I represent “Collier Technologies” instead of “Amazon.com.” I hope nobody at work minds. The network is up, people are arriving, we were offered a continental breakfast, and things are going to get started […]
