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 Akregator as far as I remember. I didn’t want to rely on anyone to host my feeds and I guess I needed Google to stop providing Google Reader for free to realize I could just host my own web based reader, like many will probably do from now on.
I needed a way to synchronize my bookmarks in Firefox across three computers, and doing it manually wasn’t an option anymore, so I turned to sync-like extensions. I needed something which would give me full control on the data storage part (I don’t want to use their servers). The first one I tried was Xmarks, which just can’t handle the 4MB bookmarks I have, so that was a dead end. Then I realized you can host your own Firefox Sync Server and that’s how 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 settings:
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 consumption…).
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 together.
