Filed under
Linux

Charles Babcock: Oracle strips out Red Hat logos and offer its own Linux? Red Hat refused to be provoked. Novell wants to cozy up to Microsoft? That's a fellow Linux distributor's affair.

And he's going to need all his skills to find an antidote to Red Hat's anti-leadership vaccine.

Screen Sharing, CLI Style

Filed under
HowTos

Tip o’ the Day: Windows users can use RDP or VNC for tech support, troubleshooting, or presentations. Linux folk have X11 or VNC. But what about command line screen sharing on a machine with no X server installed? What if the only immediate access you and your partner share is ssh?

Filed under
Linux

I never lied once about my experience, giving an honest account of what I found. But obviously, 3.7 wasn't high enough to pay tribute to the awesomeness that is Slackware! Burn the witch!

Troubleshooting with Apache logging

Filed under
HowTos

linux.com: The Apache Web server (Apache) comes with a powerful logging framework. In the default configuration, Apache logs all errors to an error log and all access requests to an access log. The default level of logging is sufficient for analyzing traffic patterns and for getting basic information about errors, but it may be inadequate for troubleshooting purposes. Familiarity with all the logging features can help you troubleshoot the Web server or applications hosted on Apache.

GNOME News

  • GNOME.Asia Summit 2016
    This year summit held at Manav Rachna International University (MRIU), which is located in the Faridabad district Delhi, it’s a quiet, beautiful and very very hot place. It gave me a lot of wonderful memories.
  • Endless and Codethink team up for GNOME on ARM
    A couple of months ago Alberto Ruiz issued a Call to Arms here on planet GNOME. This was met with with an influx of eager contributions including a wide variety of server grade ARM hardware, rack space and sponsorship to help make GNOME on ARM a reality.
  • External Plugins in GNOME Software (5)
    There’s a lot of flexibility in the gnome-software plugin structure; a plugin can add custom applications and handle things like search and icon loading in a totally custom way. Most of the time you don’t care about how search is implemented or how icons are going to be loaded, and you can re-use a lot of the existing code in the appstream plugin. To do this you just save an AppStream-format XML file in either /usr/share/app-info/xmls/, /var/cache/app-info/xmls/ or ~/.local/share/app-info/xmls/. GNOME Software will immediately notice any new files, or changes to existing files as it has set up the various inotify watches.
  • External Plugins in GNOME Software (6)
    This is my last post about the gnome-software plugin structure. If you want more, join the mailing list and ask a question. If you’re not sure how something works then I’ve done a poor job on the docs, and I’m happy to explain as much as required.
  • Week 1 of May-August Outreachy
    The Outreachy internship requires that interns maintain a blog, writing at least every other week. This shouldn't be a problem for the usability project. For the first few weeks, I'll essentially give a research topic for Diana, Ciarrai and Renata to look into and write about on their blogs. I've structured the topics so that we'll build up to building our usability tests.
