Deploying Perl Web-Apps with Puppet

Since I was asked for I’d like to show one way of how you can deploy your perl web apps using debian packages and puppet. This post assumes that you want to install some Plack webapps, e.g. App::Standby, Monitoring::Spooler and Zabbix::Reporter. Those are pretty straight-forward Plack Apps built using Dist::Zilla. cd Monitoring-Spooler dzil build I’ve […]

debsign: clearsing failed: secret key not available

KDE4.4: Getting rid of Akonadi-MySQL Startup Errors

Since upgrading to KDE4.4 I’ve got startup errors each time Akonadi was started due to some missing MySQL system tables. It’s easy to fix this: akonadictl stop mysql_install_db –datadir=$HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data akonadictl start And don’t forget to install akonadi-kde-resource-googledata. Thanks to Trumpton.

udev Notes

udevinfo was renamed to/replaced by udevadm in Debian sid. Must tutorials still refer to udevinfo. A udev rule that works on sid w/o warnings would be something like this for a garmin gps device: # cat /etc/udev/rules.d/51-garmin.rules ATTR{idVendor}==”091e”, ATTR{idProduct}==”0003″, MODE=”666″, SYMLINK+=”GarminGPS” udevinfo was renamed to/replaced by udevadm in Debian sid.

Voyage Linux on an ALIX.2D13

I’ve just spent far too much time trying to install voyage linux on my new ALIX.2D13. Everything was fine, the only problem was that I did try to use GRUB and that wasn’t working. After changing to LILO it works like a charm. The problem is probably caused by a huge version gap between etch […]

The nasty libjpeg8 transition

I looks like some major confusion on the debian-release and debian-devel lists led to the upload of broken version of libjpeg8, the successor of libjepeg62. This could delay the freeze of squeeze further and lead to some breakage in unstable. Be warned and alert. I looks like some major confusion on the debian-release and debian-devel […]

Moving Root-FS to Crypto-Raid

Have you ever tried to move your Debian root filesystem to a RAID? Ok, no problem so far. What about LVM-on-RAID? Still no trouble? Then what about Root-on-LVM-on-Crypto-on-RAID? Sounds funny. Debian has several helpscripts which are able to create a suitable initrd file for this kind of setup. This is good and bad at the […]

KDE 4.4 is ready!

A few minutes ago KDE 4.4 was tagged in the SVN. Soon the package maintainers will start building binary packages and hopefully they will arive in Debian sid soon. I can’t wait to try out the new Akonadi-powered KDE-PIM packages and the improved plasma shell. Let’s see which other features will be presented in the […]
