Debian GNU/Hurd on VirtualBox

Compulsory: 

Keywords:

One of the great things about Debian is the wide range of kernels it supports can run. This gives the user the flexibility to not spend time on the common userland stuff. For example, most apps, package management and system admin tasks are common across all Debian platforms.

These platforms may not be optimal at par to Linux, but still, choice is good.

I am pleased to announce the release of apt-offline - 1.6

This release is mostly a bug fix release, which every user should upgrade to. It also fixes a major bug in the way we limited the validation of GPG integrity, for the APT repository lists (Thank you Paul Wise).

Also, In the last release,  we migrated from custom magic library to the python shipped ctype python-magic library. That allowed some bugs to creep, and hopefully now, all those bugs should be fixed. A big thanks to Roland Summers for his bug reports and continuous feedback.

Dear Lazy Web,

I have  an HP Envy J104TS laptop. Recently I saw an interesting message in the kernel log.

[99360.969652] [Firmware Bug]: battery: (dis)charge rate invalid.

Does anybody know what firmware is it referring to here ? I don't think the current set of firmwares shiped by linux are involved in battery related information. Is it the BIOS ?

Linux has improved many many things over the last couple of years. Of the many improvements, the one that I've started leveraging the most today, are Control Groups.

In the past, when there was a need to build a prototype for a solution, we needed hardware.
