I have imported Calibre 0.9.18+dfsg1-1bzr and its dependencies into my Apt repository for Ubuntu quantal (and Linux Mint 14). Although this isn’t the latest software release, it is the latest release published in Ubuntu raring. This makes it very easy to backport with pbuilder.
I recently packaged MikroTik Winbox for our company desktops. We use RouterOS devices for many applications, and Winbox is the easiest way to manage them. It is a windows application, but it runs perfectly in wine. This package includes a desktop launcher, icon, and winbox.
I’ve updated temper-mon and my Cacti templates to better work with the TEMPerNTC device, which has an external temperature sensor in addition to the internal one.
I graph the temperature of my server cabinet (at home) and colocation room (at work) in Cacti, using TEMPer USB thermometers. I wrote a handy guide to doing this last year. Unfortunately that guide, and the software I wrote, only worked to query one device. Today I modified it to graph more than one device, and started graphing the ambient temperature of my house.
Update 2013-10-02: This issue has been resolved with BackupPC 3.3.0.
A number of people of reported issues backing up Windows hosts with SMB and BackupPC 3.2.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 precise. This is caused by a bug in Samba/smbclient since 3.6.x where excluded directories are still listed (even if they won’t be backed up). It has not yet been fixed, but there is a workaround: downgrade Samba to 3.5.x.
I’ve just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS “Precise Pangolin” on a number of devices. It’s been smooth so far, and I’ll write up the issues I’ve found soon. In the mean time, I’ve added a few packages to the precise repository.
I’ve added several packages to the repository recently. I still use maverick, the last release before Unity became the default. I intend to move to Unity with precise, but until then I’ve been backporting things to maverick.
- maverick: fceux 2.1.5, backported from precise
- maverick: get-iplayer 2.8.0, taken directly from precise
- lucid: logcheck 1.3.14, backported from precise to correct a problem with wildcard globs in the lucid release
Update 2011-08-06: BackupPC has been removed from the repo. A newer release is available in maverick-backports.
Minor updates to the repo for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat:
- BackupPC 3.2.0 has been added. This is the same package from Debian Sid, and works on Lucid as well. I don’t recommend a non-LTS release for your backup solution, but if your hardware requires a newer kernel, you might need this. I’ve tested it myself.
- Clementine 0.5.3 has been removed. You can now find a newer release in maverick-backports.
Update 2011-08-06: BackupPC has been removed from the repo. A newer release is available in lucid-backports.
BackupPC 3.2.0 is now in the repository for both Ubuntu Lucid and Hardy. The Lucid version is taken directly from Debian sid. The Hardy version is backported from the same package, with edits to make the graphs’ fonts work (older rrdtool on hardy) and depend on samba-common instead of samba-common-bin (changed after hardy).
This version fixes the “Download Zip archive” issue in Ubuntu lucid. You no longer have to manually install an older Archive::Zip Perl module.
It’s also got a shiny new favicon, courtesy yours truly. That was a hard 10 minutes’ work with GIMP, right there. Astute readers of changelogs may believe that the developers didn’t use the favicon I submitted. But according to md5sum they did, and that is awesome.
