My life has changed today.

Before I was but an ambivalent desktop user of , but now I am converted.

I have two operating systems because of all this Gtk4 compile business which is making my life more complicated than it needs to be.

But to be able to share the .var directory between the two year old PopOS and the alpha for 24.04 and have the installed flatpaks Just-Work with all my saved data. It's the kind of not-have-to-think-about-it that's really convincing.

The noble beta update failed and completely bricked my package state. After a fresh install still many basic things aren't working due to too restrictive snap apparmor policies. While not a fan of snaps I actually like the additional security they bring, but if it stops my system from working it has gone too far.
I guess it's finally time to switch to

I can see one can install @postmarketOS on the @Fairphone 5 using the @ubports installer !!

I'm gonna check ("F5") if the option gets unlocked in the incoming weeks. I'm really looking forward to stop using the default on this amazing phone !

Ubports installer app screen: the connected phone is well recognized as "fairphone 5" and the list of installable OS shows "postmarkedOs".  The button says: "install" !!

@dervishe Of course there's still no version of that closed-source stuff, so it still pulls in some libs and stuff (from ports/packages) and you need to enable Linux compatibility ... but at least, these ports now allow to run *only* widevine in Linux-compat, so you don't need some full-blown (or whatever) userland with some full-blown Linux browser any more.

A capable colleague passed on a request from their client. They want to know if the VM disks are encrypted at rest, if the keys are rotated periodically, and if there's a key retention procedure in place. Ironically, the client's VPS runs on Ubuntu 18.04, which has been out of updates for a year, and despite numerous notifications to upgrade, they believe it can wait. 😄

I want to have the application proton.me/blog/proton-mail-des available as one-click on my nixOS device just from the configuration.nix setup (so if I change machine and use the configuratoin.nix the new machine will have the same setup).

An apt-cacher-ng host or some other APT proxy/mirror that sits on your corporate network and whose logs are chomped by a clever analyzer that feeds the information of which packages/versions have been downloaded by which clients into a database ... that has to have been invented in the last 20 years. Someone got a pointer for me?

I use FreeBSD so that is what I would recommend - with 14.0-RELEASE version.

If you would like to start with like experience - may be GOOD idea on the start - then You should try latest 24.x version - which is also FreeBSD 14.x based.

Assuming You will be using x86-64 CPU you will have to download amd64 image.

*-disc1.iso for CD/DVD
*-memstick.img for USB Pendrive

Let me know how it went and if You need any help with it.

Someone please tell me screen reader support isn’t broken on the major Linux distributions like Fedora and Ubuntu that ship Wayland as default.

(I can’t get the modifier key for Orca to work under the latest Fedora Silverblue and, according to the linked issue, it’s because… it just doesn’t work under Wayland? That can’t be right, right? It would mean the major Linux distributions are inaccessible.)

Today, someone reached out to me by email just to say "thank you" for my Box Collection with different types of including all general (, , , ,..) and (, , ...) distributions.

It was just an email, rather than an issue or bug and someone took some efforts to look up my mail and to write me. It made me very happy & we should much more honour the work of others! It reminded me of how much we now take software for granted in our daily life. Things we do and handle our daily business... Even if we don't donate anything or only small amounts, we should always show respect for the time and effort of the author and maintainer. Even a small personalized email can bring great joy :)

This morning, a VPS hosting a small e-commerce site (powered by WooCommerce on Ubuntu 22.04) experienced another out-of-memory issue. A colleague (one of the developers) urgently called me, asking to upgrade the VPS due to excessive load.

I pointed out (again, as has often happened in recent weeks) that a VPS with 32GB of RAM (!!!) and 16 dedicated cores (!!!) should not run out of memory with just five simultaneous visits to a small e-commerce site. We host much larger and busier websites on much smaller VPSs. There's likely a WordPress module with a leak, or some interaction between modules causing this issue.

The response: Okay, but just add more RAM and power to solve it.

The illusion of "infinite resources" in the Cloud has led to poor development habits. Sometimes I wonder how much energy and resources we waste (and pollution we generate) due to a lack of basic optimization.
