Final Update

Filed under
Site News

Well, I guess everything is about ready, except for a few minor glitches. I haven't looked at possible reasons why the gallery rss feed broke, but it's due for an upgrade so I'm not really concerned about that.

As noted in a comment of the last post we now have mail. I gave up on sendmail and opted for postfix which was really easy to set up.

I found a 'nodeteaser' module for drupal 5.1 that is a fairly decent replacement for the 'excerpt' module that I really liked.

I had another showstopper close-call. I noticed last night that the server seemed to be losing its connection to the internet. I couldn't connect to anything and of course no one could connect to me. It was a scary coupla hours. I even thought perhaps the nic or cable was failing, but big coincidence one of those failed the very day I installed a new os. I did notice these occasional 'increasing tx limit' messages scroll by in the logs and that's about the time the connection would go down. So as an experiment I adjusted the txqueuelen down from 1000 to 250 and that seems to have fixed it. But so weird. Maybe google will turn up this post of anyone else experiences those symptoms and searches for an answer. (Debian etch) It's easy to do at the commandline, just type: ifconfig eth0 down && ifconfig eth0 txqueuelen 250 up

I still haven't rebooted yet, so we will be going down and back up a few times tonight while we debug the restart process. But other than the glitch with gallery and rebooting, I guess we are about ready to go and perhaps I can concentrated on new distro releases again. Smile

​Companies really want Linux-savvy employees and they want them now

According to the Linux Foundation and tech job company Dice, in the 2015 Linux Jobs Report, "Nearly all hiring managers are looking to recruit Linux professionals." While programmers and Linux system administrators are in high demand, your chances of landing a great job are greater if you have cloud, security, and/or software defined networking (SDN) skills. In particular, "42 percent of hiring managers say experience with or knowledge of OpenStack and CloudStack are having a big impact on their Linux hiring decisions" while "49 percent of Linux professionals believe open cloud will be the biggest growth area for Linux in 2015."

Mozilla's *Really* Important News: Thunderbird Lives

So why does that matter? After all, there are lots of ways of accessing email, so why should we care whether Thunderbird has been semi-abandoned or not? As I wrote at the end of 2013, the world has changed dramatically in the wake of Edward Snowden's leaks about massive surveillance of our online activities. That makes using encryption crucial, and that, in its turn, gives Thunderbird a renewed importance, because it is currently one of the most popular ways for using GNU Privacy Guard, the free software version of the core PGP technology, via Enigmail. Indeed, it's fascinating to see from the Thunderbird blog post on "Active Daily Installations" that privacy-loving Germany headed the list with 1.7 million out of a total of 9.3 million (UK could only manage a rather feeble 254,000.)
