By default the FORWARD table drops all packages...
To get vm's back on the net simply leverage to make the packets flow again:

$ sudo iptables -A FORWARD -i br0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT

You can install iptables-persistent to save the current ruleset so it is applied every time you restart the system. 😉

Some have rolled their eyes at the "paranoid" requirement from the community of in-person gpg key signing as a step to become a Debian developer, and it's often been a real barrier.

But I'm reminded of it at the keynote today as the Foundation's Jim Zemlin talks about the xz vulnerability and identity verification of developers.

It was never paranoia. It doesn't solve everything, and people can still be dishonest, but it was never excessive paranoia.

So... I didn't get to the root on ZFS boot disk mirroring I sat down to implement, but the refactoring was needed to do it.

There's a LOT going on here but in short it's one-stop shopping for splatting VM images, stock images, , and images to disk or physical devices in an effort to never see an "installer" again in my life. And it's achieving that goal!

I may pull in the Windows support which is not the same thing, but gives the same result.

Feel free to bellyache that it's back to approaching 1000 lines of KSH, but no, I don't see how Go|Rust|Zig|Erlang|Lua would help with something that is 98% shell commands.

The same thing is happening again with this new server install; I can't access it or its Docker containers through my VPN.

I'm at a loss with this. From home, everything is available and responding pings. When I VPN (I've texted from multiple locations away from home), that server will not respond to SSH, ping, nothing. All the other devices show up with no issue (see picture).

I've attempted this with Teleport and Wireguard...but I don't think they're the culprits since the other servers are available through both. Is there some network weirdness that happens on Debian installs with upgrades or such that I need to correct? I've tried with and without UFW enabled, and I've also tried changing it's IP (102-105). It still doesn't connect.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm at a loss, and the Internet isn't turning up anything for this particular problem. I have a Unifi UDM for my router.

(More info in pics ALT text.)

A series of pings. The first is the gateway, the following are servers that are reachable. When 102 is pinged, it does not respond. The current interface setup for .102. I've changed this several times to other .100 range IPs. It still won't ping through the VPN.

Which means considering creating patches to fix ABI breakage such a rollback would cause.

Not having added anything to for a while now, I'd say v2.0 is the "final" version for now. I initially wanted that for v1.0, and it's amazing how many weird files, edge cases, and also ideas for improvements you can discover for something that "simple" 🙈

I have ideas for future development, like provide the core functionalities as a shared library, like add some config file for dos2ansi itself as well (instead of just for ), maybe even more ... but all of that can wait, it's IMHO "complete" as it is.

A package is attached to the release on github, and a port is added ... anyone wants to help make it available in more repositories? 😎 Would be most helpful if the fonts it uses by default are packaged as well and can be set as dependencies ...

Marginally better performance on database writes with stock 12 on the RPI4b. Order of magnitude better performance on reads with 14 . That Cortex A-72 CPU is dwarfed by a budget Intel i7 with a dedicated SSD. Still, evidence that stock FreeBSD 14 >= the latest Raspberry PI OS for complex workloads (like database operations). IMO, native is really the killer DB feature on BSD.

I wrote piuparts initially, but I've not been involved in many, many years. If I got a chance to rewrite it from scratch, it'd be quite different. To start with, it'd use a virtual machine, or at least a container, instead of a chroot. But, more important, I'd try to make it simpler.

Hm, I’m thinking about switching completely my personal servers to based systems. Why?

Because I can! For real, it’s an awesome new platform, almost no one is using it for production (because of the limited support (especially currently from an OS perspective), knowledge and performance). However, I’m already running some boards in production, some tests I already shared with you (see also summary) and we saw that it’s easily running my workloads - so why not?

So when speaking about „why not“ my first issue is that it would force me to instead of . It would be the first time since 2008 running personal Linux server instead of BSD based ones. It’s not a knowledge problem, I heavily even contribute to a Debian based distribution as a developer, it’s more an aspect of philosophy.
