As requested by the audience, the slides of my presentation are now online. You can find them on slideshare
I had a few of interesting questions after the talk and some nice chats.
I won't also a nice book at the business card lottery : Automating System Administration with Perl.
See you next year :)
PS: the sushi's were wonderful ! (poor sdog)
Sunday 11th April, I will be at LOAD to talk about the daily management of huge (and ugly) tables in MySQL.
It's a reviewed talk of my previous FOSDEM session. I just finished the review of the slides.
I hope to see you there :-)
As requested by Pieter, here are the spec files I used to create the openERP rpms for fedora and centos.
As some packages have different names or different user management commands, I need two different spec files for same pakages in each distro.
(only the client can be the same)
I wait for your feedback
I created rpms for CentOS and Fedora of openERP 5.0.7
I didn't test them yet but you can try them and send me your feedback to improve them.
As promised after the talk, these are the slides I presented this morning.
I had great feedback from the audience, thank you.
Thanks vinnov for the picture :-)
ptxArchiver 0.3 is out.
I added the possibility to not insert the delete statement in the binlog for replication. I also fixed some minor bugs.
give it a try and send me your feedback :)
I was very late to update my own site ! Yesterday I was still running drupal 5.3 !! (shame on me).
Now the site is updated and runs the latest version of drupal 6.x
I'm very happy with this upgrade and I took the opportunity to change the theme; this time I use a nice (to my opinion) theme provided by drupal : fervens
I'll be at Fosdem 2k10 !
You could meet me at the beer event of Friday, I'll also be at the Devops dinner, everybody interested in the Devops talk can join (you can still choose for the place here)
I'll also attend the MySQL & Friends meetup on Saturday night.
During the conferences, you could find me in front of the O'reilly stand or in the Fedora or MySQL devroom.
On Sunday I'll give a talk in the MySQL devroom : Daily maintenance of big tables.
I hope to see you there :)
On my new mac book pro 13inch, I decided to install Fedora 12 for my daily use (I like Mac OSX but not for work) and as GNU/Linux consultant I need my dear lovely Linux laptop :-)
But out of the box 3D support for the video card is not supported nouveau (open source nvidia driver) and the WIFI is also not working.
Using rpmfusion I've installed kmod-nvidia and kmod-wl and it works fine. (YOU STILL NEED TO INSTALL THEM, even with the packages bellow, the current packages are : kmod-nvidia-190.42-1.fc12.9.x86_64.rpm and kmod-wl-18.104.22.168.3-3.fc12.11.x86_64.rpm)
But (there is always a but it seems) the nothing comes out of my speakers or headphones... (Whhhyyyyyyy!!!?).
Due to a lack of time and a reasonable level of frustration, I stayed several weeks with my new brand silent laptop.
00:08.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP79 High Definition Audio (rev b1)
This is the ouput of the sound preferences :
and in alsamixer :
I finally decided to have a deeper look to my problem (frustration level reached the limit :-P )
I installed the kernel from rawhide (kernel-22.214.171.124-18.fc13.x86_64) but of course no driver for nvidia video card and wifi available for that kernel :'-( (I told you there is always a but)
UPDATE: that kernel is not more available (seems to be updated while writing this post), new packages are now attached at the end of this post for kernel-126.96.36.199-21.fc13.x86_64
So I recreated the rpms to support them.
You just need to install them
and add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/sound :
options snd_hda_intel model=intel-alc889a
Reboot, check sound preferences:
Increase the volume and unmute in alsamixer, save it and enjoy (no more but !) :)
For those looking how to turn on the lights of the keyboard, just try this :
echo X > /sys/devices/platform/applesmc.768/leds/smc::kbd_backlight/brightness X is a value from 0 to 255
