Yay, I got NFS to work under systemd in vivid. That's the last blocker for flipping the default init!

I'll send them to Debian, but in Debian NFS is not known-broken; it just uses a monolithic init.d script. That's different in Ubuntu where we only had some upstart jobs.

I released a new python-dbusmock 0.13, with a new urfkill template, thanks to +Jussi Pakkanen ! Uploaded to Debian experimental, will sync into Ubuntu vivid in a few hours.

Shame urfkill's API is so bad :(

autopkgtest 3.10 landed in Debian sid and Ubuntu vivid today. As by-product from the recent systemd debugging, reboot tests in QEMU are now rock solid (systemd has a new test which reboots the VM 20 times in a row, which previously failed quite often on loaded machines like in CI).

The LXC runner also learned the "reboot" capability, at least if you don't use -e/--ephemeral (lxc-start-ephemeral does not support rebooting, as far as I can see).

This weird boot regression in systemd 219 is killing me.. After I spent the entire Friday with trying to find a reproducer and identifying the component with the regression, I now finally managed to reproduce the bug fully automatically (in the form of an autopkgtest). Now running the big git bisect, which will keep my laptop busy for the remaining day :-)

systemd bug fixing galore! It seems we won't get a 219 release in time for feature freeze any more, so I cherrypicked a lot from upstream git. This fixes several major bugs, and also includes the stellar contribution from +Didier Roche to integrate fsck into Plymouth; and doing so in a clean and upstream compatible way, not the hack that we currently have in Ubuntu which could never go anywhere and was a translation/theme porting woe. (The patches can't land upstream yet as upstream is in bug fixing mode for 219, but will hopefully land after releasing 219). Also a big thanks to +Michael Biebl , glad to see you back!

New apport release, with Wayland support, a much faster apport-unpack for huge binary keys like kernel crashdumps, and some bug fixes. Expect it in Ubuntu vivid soon!

 #VM
 
I spend a good chunk of my day in QEMU VMs, for both QA/CI and systemd related work. I always want to use KVM, virtio, and ssh port redirection and I got tired of the typing/history editing, so I wrote a stupid little typing saver script.

With that you can now do "vm path/to/image.img" to start a VM, or append arbitrary QEMU options. E. g. my standard "I need a throwaway VM for playing around" command is "vm /srv/vm/adt-vivid-amd64-cloud.img -snapshot" (that's the image spat out by adt-buildvm-ubuntu-cloud which we use for package testing in autopkgtest).

Bah, I can't write the word "system" any more without appending a "d". autofinger syndrome...

Only if you replace the first e by è... And you gain utf8 compile-time checking for free :-)

One major thing that I've missed on Ubuntu touch was the possibility to sync my calendar and address book with my owncloud server. I just stumbled over this helpful article; it takes some command line hacking, but this works really well at least on the current Ubuntu vivid images!

Now I'm down to "Handyticket" (train/bus tickets) and the Deutsche Bahn Rail Navigator (train schedules and tickets), and the notorious WhatsApp as reasons why I still need Android. But having proper contacts and calendar at least allows me to run Ubuntu for longer periods of time ☺

+Nekhelesh Ramananthan You can't buy tickets through Fahrplan, as mentioned in http://sturmflut.github.io/ubuntu/touch/2015/02/15/ubuntu-touch-app-wishlist/ . That's one oft my major use cases.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's systemd 219 upstream release, the new package now made it through all the CI machinery and landed in Ubuntu. I'll also upload another Debian experimental version now which will fix the FTBFS on various architectures, so that you can play with it on Debian, too.

Fresh systemd in Ubuntu on the same as Fedora.. The world is changing.

Ugh, so many hours wasted on trying to reproduce this and figure out what's going on. And the "ah, of course!" when you finally understood it ☺

/etc/mtab, I hate you even more now. What an utterly broken concept by design!

It's from my Google Nexus 4 phone, and indeed its camera is rather crappy ☹ But indeed they are ridiculously small, I blame the Google+ Android app (although that doesn't usually happen -- perhaps its scaling them down because of the really crappy network?)
