As you may know, I’m using Vagrant for more than a year now with VirtualBox. Docker is a faster alternative that needs to be taken into consideration. Having the possibility to manage both of them with the same tool can be very interesting. For information, I mainly use it with VirtualBox because it’s any platform compatible and Docker because it’s perfect for a CI like Jenkins. I recently talked about my implication into the Smash project.
Following the deployment blog post I made on ES/Kibana/Fluentd, I released new version of Fluentd and Kibana playbooks to support the latests versions of themselves and ElasticSearch. ElasticSearch 1.4 version is ,out which doesn’t changed anything for the deployment. However Kibana requires to enable an ElasticSearch configuration option now, to work properly. I updated the Kibana playbook for it. On its side, Fluentd has the major release 2.0 out and I updated Ansible playbook for the best integration with Debian Wheezy.
I recently had the case, where I lost connexion of my NFS client connexion because NFS server crashed. The problem I had is simple, some of clients couldn’t recover their connexion because the old one was still shown as already connected. And when I tried to remount NFS clients connexions, I got: mount.nfs: mount(2): Protocol not supported mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'udp,sec=sys,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,intr,hard,addr=10.0.0.1' mount.nfs: prog 100003, trying vers=3, prot=17 mount.nfs: trying 10.
Jessie is now frozen!!! Here is the news. That mean only limited updates can be done: targeted fixes for release critical bugs (i.e., bugs of severity critical, grave, and serious) in all packages (applies during the entire freeze (ok for TPU)); fixes for severity: important bugs in packages of priority: optional or extra, only when this can be done via unstable (until the 5th of December 2014);
OpenStack Summit will take place in Paris in 2 days! I’m excited to be able to participate. Big thanks to eNovance/RedHat for it! To know more about the event, please follow the link.
I’m currently developing a complete packaging stack based on Docker to easily make different kind of packages for several Linux distributions. This for MySecureShell project. This stack will be used to build packages in destination of upstream Linux distribution packages. But I’d like to provide a simpler and faster way to create custom repositories mainly for Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS and Fedora. In addition if packages could be automatically created when a new tag is pushed to the GitHub account, it would be perfect.
You may know that I’m one of the 2 founders of MySecureShell. Around 6 years ago, we made a quick try to send MySecureShell to Debian and didn’t make enough efforts to make it possible. This time I worked hard to make this happen. Thanks a lot to Gonéri Le bouder, a colleague and Debian dev to make it possible and helped me to do it fast, before Jessie freeze.
