dbus, rsyslogd, systemd: Which one is the culprit?

Sht, 02/12/2017 - 4:03md
I have been facing this issue since a few weeks on testing. For many weeks, it prevented upgrading dbus to the latest version that trickled to Testing. Having manually force-installed dbus via the Recovery Mode's shell, I then ran into this issue:

This is a nasty one, since it also prevents performing a clean poweroff. That systemd-journald line about getting a timeout while attempting to connect to the Watchdog keeps on showing ad infinitum.

Hacking with posters and stickers

Pre, 01/12/2017 - 9:27md

The hackerspace in Lausanne, Switzerland has started this weekend's VR Hackathon with a somewhat low-tech 2D hack: using the FSFE's Public Money Public Code stickers in lieu of sticky tape to place the NO CLOUD poster behind the bar.

Debian LTS work, November 2017

Pre, 01/12/2017 - 6:54md

I was assigned 13 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 4 hours from September. I worked all 17 hours.

I prepared and released two updates on the Linux 3.2 longterm stable branch (3.2.95, 3.2.96), but I didn't upload an update to Debian. However, I have rebased the Debian package on 3.2.96 and expect to make a new upload soon.

Mini-DebConf Cambridge 2017

Pre, 01/12/2017 - 6:51md

Last week I attended Cambridge's annual mini-DebConf. It's slightly strange to visit a place one has lived in for a long time but which is no longer home. I joined Nattie in the 'video team house' which was rented for the whole week; I only went for four days.

I travelled down on Wednesday night, and spent a long time (rather longer than planned) on trains and in waiting rooms. I used this time to catch up on discussions about signing infrastructure for Secure Boot, explaining my concerns with the most recent proposal and proposing some changes that might alleviate those. Sorry to everyone who was waiting for that; I should have replied earlier.

On the Thursday and Friday I prepared for my talk, and had some conversations with Steve McIntyre and others about SB signing infrastructure. Nattie and Andy respectively organised group dinners at the Polish club on Thursday and a curry house on Friday, both of which I enjoyed.

The mini-DebConf proper took place on the Saturday and Sunday, and I presented my now annual talk on "What's new in the Linux kernel". As usual, the video team did a fine job of recording and publishing video of the talks.

I was trying to get selenium up and running.

I was trying to get selenium up and running. I wanted to try chrome headless and one that seemed to be usable seemed to be selenium but that didn't just work out of the box on Debian apt-get installed binary. hmm.
