  • git-pbuilder 1.39
  • Term::ANSIColor 4.04

    The recent work I've been doing on podlators taught me that the build system of my other core module, Term::ANSIColor, was also doing the wrong thing when installed on Perl versions older than 5.11, even though no one had reported it. While I was there, I also switched back to ExtUtils::MakeMaker for the build system so that I'm testing the same build system that's also used for Perl core.

  • podlators 4.03

    There was a bug in the test suite of the last few versions of podlators that caused the test for devising dates to fail if POD_MAN_DATE or SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH were already set. Since I needed to fix that anyway, I decided to poke at the test suite some more, and made some good progress towards refactoring it, breaking out common code, and making it easier to add new tests. It's still in the stage where I've added more code than I've removed, but a lot of that is comments and the new code is much better.

  • git-pbuilder 1.38

    A minor update to the builder glue script for git-buildpackage. This release just has documentation fixes. I had missed that you no longer need explicit gbp.conf configuration because git-buildpackage now has a --git-pbuilder flag, and, when using that, there are a variety of other command-line flags to use instead of environment variables.

  • Steinar H. Gunderson - Speeding up Samba AD

    One Weird Trick(TM) for speeding up a slow Samba Active Directory domain controller is seemingly to leave and rejoin the domain. (If you don't have another domain controller, you'll need to join one in temporarily.) Seemingly, not only can you switch to LMDB (which has two fsyncs instead of eight on commit—which matters a lot, especially on non-SSDs, as the Kerberos authentication path has a blocking write to update account statistics), but you also get to regenerate the database, giving you the advantage of any new indexes since last upgrade.

  • How to Change File Extensions on Linux

    File extensions help both operating systems and users distinguish between different file formats and understand the contents stored inside them. When you see a file with the ".txt" extension, you instantly know it contains text data. Similarly, ".exe" file is a Windows executable and ".sh" files are Linux shell scripts. But what if you want to change these extensions for some reason? Perhaps you need to rename a text file to a Bash script. Simply writing the code in a text file won't do the job. On Linux, changing file extensions is much easier than you might think.
