We’ve recently switched the host behind the siosm.fr domain and thus decided it
was time we dropped syslog logging entirely and use journald only. We
used to get weekly log reports sent by mail by logrotate, but we never read
them as they were way too big, thus this was useless.
I must confess: I’ve almost never used Google Reader as I’ve only been using

I did it.
This blog now has interactive comments thanks to the
Wt Comments project started by
my friend Martin Peres. On his blog, you’ll find
all the reasons
that make Wt Comments a must have for us users of static blogs. However, they’re
still a few features missing:
Allowing users to delete their comments;
Allowing users to subscribe/unsubscribe to an article in order to receive
mails for new comments.
Feel free to comment(!), request features or, even better, send patches to improve it!
Wayland and Weston have been moved to community/extra! Thus this How to
is no longer necessary. I’m just keeping it here for reference. I may update
*-git packages but I can’t promise I will do it frequently.
So how do I use it ? Well, I found the html report to be the most useful as it
gives you the exact commands (Tunables) you need to run to adjust power
sudo powertop --html
You will then find those commands in the Tunables tab in the powertop-*.html
generated file. You should try carefully each one of them one by one as they
can have some nasty effect (disabling USB mouse, increasing power
If you’re using systemd like I do, and want to use the classic /etc/rc.local
file to set those settings at boot time, you should use the
initscripts-systemd package and make sure it is enabled with :
I recently had to setup cgit with nginx on Arch Linux for
http://git.siosm.fr and it took me quite some time as I was not familiar with
cgi, fcgi, fcgiwrap, spawn-fcgi and had no idea how they worked
