we are going to install some perl modules, for a very line-oriented christmas.
% perl -MCPAN -e 'install IO:Tty'
% perl -MCPAN -e 'install Acme'
% perl -MCPAN -e 'install POE'
preferably as root.

want to have `Acme::POE::Tree', and execute
% perl -MAcme::POE::Tree -e 'Acme::POE::Tree->new()->run()'
meaning: `http://search.cpan.org/~rgiersig/IO-Tty-1.07/Tty.pm';
finally: `http://search.cpan.org/~rcaputo/Acme-POE-Tree-1.01/lib/Acme/POE/Tree.pm'.

% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RG/RGIERSIG/IO-Tty-1.07.tar.gz
% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/I/IN/INGY/Acme-1.11111.tar.gz
% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/POE-1.003.tar.gz
% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/Acme-POE-Tree-1.01.tar.gz

% perl Makefile.PL && make && make test && make install
for each mod.

% perl -MCPAN -e 'install Acme::POE::Tree'
obviously, you'll have to set cpan first ($HOME/.cpan/Metadata).

% perl -MAcme::POE::Tree -e 'Acme::POE::Tree->new()->run()'
once you have it, play with it: modifying (the method) `star_delay', or `light_delay', etc.

p.s.: `IO::Tty' determines tty's properties, by importing constants. w00t!
p.p.s.: thanks to rocco for the geeky present.

ext4dev it's now ext4 (fs/Kconfig, fs/Makefile, fs/ext4/*), so no TEST_FILESYS anymore; error handling control option (i/o operations; buffer write errors don't get detected, if fsync() is not used, iow, determines whether to call printk() or to abort journalizing; however, ignoring will be set by default), (prominently fs/ext4/ext4.h); no HUGE_FILE flag auto-enabled; delayed allocation mode disabled (fs/ext4/inode.c).

.nvidia-96-kernel-source: 96.43.09.

as expected/promised, 71.86.07/96.43.09 drivers are available.
add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:
# `"deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-proposed restricted main multiverse universe"'.

some apt-pinning:

% sudo touch /etc/apt/preferences. then, edit it:

Package: *
Pin: release a=intrepid-updates
Pin-Priority: 900

Package: *
Pin: release a=intrepid-proposed
Pin-Priority: 400

finally, switching:
% sudo apt-get purge nvidia-96-* -V ; apt-cache show nvidia-96-kernel-source -f \.
% sudo apt-get install nvidia-96-kernel-source -t intrepid-proposed -V ; sudo apt-cache show nvidia-96-kernel-source -f \.

_d__k__m__s_ shall do the work, after that. have fun.
optionally, give nvidia-xconfig a try (appending, of course, "Option \"NoLogo\" \"True\", within the `Device' section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf).

p.s. % glxinfo ; glxgears \. -- : ).
p.s.s. feedback /at/ here.

.routine intrepid diggings.

## 00.
nvidia-glx-legacy and nvidia-glx in Hardy, the 71/96 (currently 71.86.04 'n' 96.43.05) series (nVidia TNT, TNT2, TNT Ultra, GeForce, GeForce2, GeForce3, and GeForce4 chipsets) of proprietary nVidia drivers, are _not_ compatible with the X.Org included in Intrepid. ; resolution: mesa / no 3d rendering.
nVidia released some (two) betas, working with X.Org 7.4, so... waiting for these packages (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=1821020/ - nVidia devs' confirmation).
no more support[1] for Radeon 9500 - X600 Series (r300 based chips).
p.s. [1] == Support from the ATI Driver, for Ubuntu 8.10, of course...

## 01.
Audacious 1.5.1 [UNSUPPORTED VERSION] :: segmentation fault ; resolution.01: remove -purge, remove/purge audacious-crossfade or alter ~/.config/audacious/config.

## 02.
xchat 2.8.6 :: chanopt.conf feature. +1.

## 03.
mplayer segmentation fault ; using nv driver (under x).

## 04.
The possibility of $# sudo service < service.foo > [start|stop|restart] \, and $# sudo service < service.foo > status \ will report the state of service.foo (running or not).

## 05.
Nice runlevel layout, making rcconf more easy to use on managing services/daemons.

## 06.
Executable(s) randomize the in-memory location, net.services being compiled as PIE (position-independent executables) (e.g. postfix, openssh, apache2, bind9, dhcp3). +1 for security (vulnerabilities are _harder_ to exploit, on the 2.6-27-7-* kernel).

## 07.
Sun's Java OpenJDK 1.6 included into the main repo.

## 08.
the "CD eject" thing.

so, finally, happy release to you all.

## # _more_ to come. : ). #
n.b. stay tuned! intrepid shall be here.

.intrepid alpha 5.

Among the newest GNOME (2.23.91) with its new features (like the improved File Roller archive manager which now has extra support for ALZ, RZIP, CAB, TAR.7Z) and many bug fixes, official DKMS project testing on Intrepid (useful on third-party drivers updating, on a new kernel core update - highly increased stability/compatibility; less work for you), Ubuntu Intrepid Alpha 5 has began the official evaluation of kernel 2.6.27 (available for install since 28 August - AFAIK) for Ubuntu 8.10; also, the "Last successful boot" implementation (adding a last successful option on GRUB's /boot/grub/menu.lst, each time the boot process is successful - by making a copy of the running kernel), useful in APT's autoremove feature (by making it more safer - speaking of kernels).

.google chromium (beta).

while it's not yet packaged for *nix-based systems, chromium code is available for downloading/installing on a gnu/linux machine (so, i and my buddy ed tried it out last night, to see what we can get).

however, due to extreme loading, depot_tools from
src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/depot_tools/linux depot_tools's svn were unable to get the source (src path).
then I decided to throw a wget on chromium's /svn/trunk/src (http://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/src), downloading the source (btw, you will probably have scons already installed - found on third-party/ dir, anyway).

in the meantime, the folks uploaded an updated version of chromium (equivalent of depot_tool's gclient sync - full synchronization was a subject to avoid just a few hours ago). so, check it out, compile it with scons (scons Hammer in /chromium/src/chrome/); give it a try.

update: this morning, i gave wine (wine-1.1.3) a chance. chromium ran, then crashed, but at least now I can take a tiny look under the hood (use this build).

() /exec true.

it uses the v8 javascript engine, (unique) multi-process architecture, "giving back memory" implementation, (first!) webkit implementation on mswin.
also, chromium is very challenging to debug (it has about:memory facility, its own taskman, etc.). have fun.

p.s.: the code contains _a.lot_ of libraries (like webki, npapi, libxml, hunspell, bzip2, scons, sqlite, tlslite, etc.), search for readmne.google files for details about each of these libs.

.2.6.27 on intrepid.

The Ubuntu Kernel Team is planning to move to the 2.6.27 kernel for the
upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release.

You can either install the linux-image-2.6.27-* package (currently available for testing),
or wait for the upcoming Alpha 5 (to be released Thursday September 4) for Intrepid, which will contain the 2.6.27 kernel.

Feedback will be apreciated.

.intrepid alpha 4.

Major bug fixes + *the _cool_ stuff*.
... Such as:
## # 1

## 1.0
# A location for _human_ users to securely store data using filesystem encryption.
# ~/Private directory, permissions maintained at 700.
# Mount cryptographically (ecryptfs) on top of ~/.Private (also permission 700).
## 1.1
# Hook PAM to use login password to unwrap a mount passphrase.
# Automatically mount and unmount ~/Private on login (console, ssh, gnupg, desktop, etc).

## # 2
## 2.0
# A temporary password-less user account with restricted privileges (the so-called\
# "guest account").
# Comfortably for a quick sharing of your desktop/laptop (an email check, a surf station for guests, etc).

## # 3
## 3.0
# Network Manager 0.7.x, which will work with any card that properly supports wireless extensions.
## 3.1
# New (management) features: PPP and PPPOE connections, routes for devices, static IP configurations, 3G connections, system wide settings - no\ # log in needed in order to get a connection, and also multiple active devices.

.intrepid alpha 2.

Ubuntu 8.10 (code name Intrepid Ibex), scheduled for final release on October 30th 2008 is moving forward to the absolute greatest software of the Open Source Community.

The Intrepid Ibex Alpha 2 (July 10th), is the second alpha release of Ubuntu 8.10, which, along with the very new improved features (package merge from Debian, also with brand new packages and heavy upgrading of the existing ones, Xorg - X11R7.4 with new and upgraded modules, apps/utils/drivers/libs, featuring xserver 1.5 - currently RC5 ), runs on 2.6.26-3.9 kernel, based on 2.6.26-rc8 (2.6.26-rc9 soon). The new kernel, announced on 13 Jul 2008, by Linus Torvalds, along with its stable release has many improvements from 2.6.25 (including EXT4 new - experimental - features, built-in support for remote KGDB debugging, new KVM ports and USB Video Class driver, build-in-kernel memtest, /proc/pid/mountinfo, read-only bind mounts, wireless mesh networking support, security= boot parameter, and much more stuff), along with lots of driver additions and some architecture-specific enhancements. Oh, let's not forget about the Kernel Hacking make options, where you can configure and test some of the new features.

However, there still is massively increased video drivers instability, so, while this still is an alpha release, you are advised not to install it on production machines. In the meanwhile, you can report bugs through the Ubuntu bugtracker. : )

.then, they fight you.




as you probably know already, there's been a security alert for openssl.


”A weakness has been discovered in the random number generator used by OpenSSL on Debian and Ubuntu systems. As a result of this weakness, certain encryption keys are much more common than they should be, such that an attacker could guess the key through a brute-force attack given minimal knowledge of the system. This particularly affects the use of encryption keys in OpenSSH.”


“It is strongly recommended that all cryptographic key material which has been generated by OpenSSL versions starting with 0.9.8c-1 on Debian systems is recreated from scratch. Furthermore, all DSA keys ever used on affected Debian systems for signing or authentication purposes should be considered compromised; the Digital Signature Algorithm relies on a secret random value used during signature generation.” (From the Debian Alert).


“You need to take action to continue using Launchpad features such as code hosting. We have deleted your SSH key from Launchpad because we have discovered a potential security vulnerability in the way your key was generated.”

also reported on _the_fridge_ for ubuntu (http://fridge.ubuntu.com/node/1445/).

right; how to fix this.

## update your system:

# install the security updates, i.e.:
feisty : openssh-client 1:4.3p2-8ubuntu1.3 openssh-server 1:4.3p2-8ubuntu1.3.
gutsy : openssh-client 1:4.6p1-5ubuntu0.3 openssh-server 1:4.6p1-5ubuntu0.3.
hardy : openssh-client 1:4.7p1-8ubuntu1.1 openssh-server 1:4.7p1-8ubuntu1.1.

## once the update is applied, weak user keys will be automatically rejected where possible.

# update openssh files.

that is, one shall check whether the key is affected by running the ssh-vulnkey tool (from the security update). (if in doubt, destroy that key and generate a new one.)

# to check all your own keys, assuming they are in the standard locations (~/.ssh/id_rsa || ~/.ssh/id_dsa || ~/.ssh/identity):
% ssh-vulnkey.

# to check all keys on your system:
% sudo ssh-vulnkey -a.

# to check a key in a non-standard location:
% ssh-vulnkey /path/to/key/.

if ssh-vulnkey says "COMPROMISED", the key is vulnerable and __should__ be replaced.

# regenerate any affected user keys openssh or, generate new keys using ssh-keygen, e.g.:
% ssh-keygen.

if necessary, update the files.

however, this situation occurred as the result of a programming bug, not as the result of making some weak key.
we all thank luciano bello, who discovered that the random number generator in deb's openssl package is predictable.
