New fatrace release which grew a --filter option for selecting particular types of events only. Thanks to Bryce Nesbitt!

I'm really happy to see the #debian 8.0 release, just as planned. Kudos and thanks to the Debian release team! (Having spent the last week on the Ubuntu release sprint I know how much behind-the-curtain work that is..)

I upgraded my server today, which went without a hitch for the most part. The new kernel and systemd boot fine (except that I'm now getting bug #782522, but that's mostly cosmetical and looks simple to fix for Debian 8.1). I spent by far the most time on updating Apache's configs to the stricter ACL defaults and slightly changed configuration layouts, and figuring out why postfix stopped accepting SSL cert based relaying (due to splitting out of smtpd_relay_restrictions). So all in all, a rather good experience, and after 1.5 hours the major stuff was working again. \o/

One-man beat box, this guy was amazing! I've seen him yesterday afternoon on Piccadilly Square in London.

Over 100 bugs about booting with systemd fixed, 15 to go! (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bugs?field.tag=systemd-boot)

Not too many important ones left, so I'm fairly positive that vivid won't suck too badly. But as usual almost all bugs that are being reported these days are in the "weird corner case" territory, so if you report something please always include as much information about your configs, journalctl -b etc. as possible. Keep them coming!

Today I found some time to edit my (rather rough) photos of the recent #solareclipse which we saw in Inari, Finnland. High up in the north we had over 90% coverage.

The other photos still need some time for post-processing  (mostly the Northern Lights ones).

I registered for #debconf15 -- at last, it's been a decade  since I went last time, waaay to long! I'm looking forward to seeing my fellow DDs again, doing some systemd, PostgreSQL, and autopkgtest/debci hacking.

See you in Heidelberg!

We have some troubles with closing the lid not causing suspend, so time to write an automatic test case for this. With this a lid event can be faked:

evemu-describe /dev/input/event0 > lidswitch.evemu
# now change name in lidswitch.evemu to "Fake Lid Switch"
mkdir -p /run/udev/rules.d
echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="input", KERNEL=="event*", ATTRS{name}=="Fake Lid Switch", TAG+="power-switch"' > /run/udev/rules.d/70-fake-power-switch.rules
udevadm control --reload
evemu-device lidswitch.evemu &

# lid close:
evemu-event /dev/input/event16 --sync --type 5 --code 0 --value 1
# lid open:
evemu-event /dev/input/event16 --sync --type 5 --code 0 --value 0

yay!

+Martin Pitt - gotcha, thanks! BTW,  have you come across anything that sounds like what we're experiencing? Originally I thought this problem was only happening with Nvidia GPU systems, but we have since also encountered it with Intel GPU systems, although it seems to happen a lot less frequently on them for whatever reason.

We haven't filled a bug yet because we're still trying to clarify what's going on, trying to figure out how to consistently reproduce it.

The security fix in Apport 2.17.1 is incomplete, as there is a kernel bug with /proc/net/unix which still leaves an exploitable local root hole. 2.17.2 now completely disables forwarding to containers for the time being, until this gets fixed properly. Please see https://launchpad.net/bugs/1444518 for details.

New apport upstream release with an important security fix for a local root privilege escalation. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/apport/+bug/1438758 for the status in the various Ubuntu releases.

did google manage to score a TLD or is just we're all using 8.8.8.8 as our nameservers ?

A rainy afternoon with GIMP, its excellent Wavelet noise removal filter (to counteract my rather crappy PowerShot pocket camera) and some contrast tuning. Now the Northern Light pictures look rather beautiful.

I blogged some impressions from our trip to Lapland (in German), the full photo album is at http://www.piware.de/fotos/Polarlichtreise%20Lappland%20Mar%202015/ .
 ·  Translate
Wir sind wieder zurück aus unserem tollen Winterurlaub! Es ging nach Lappland in Nord-Finnland und Nord-Norwegen. Das ganze Fotoalbum gibt es auch zu sehen. Am Montag den 16. März starten wir unsere Reise nach Lappland, vom Flughafen München über Helsinki bis nach Ivalo.

+Andreas Tille: it is already packaged in the gimp-plugin-registry package.
