Jonathan Dowland: 3D-printed replacement battery cover
https://jmtd.net/log/battery_cover/
April 22, 2022, 2:57 PM
Print next to the original
new cover in the light
My first self-designed functional 3D print is a replacement
battery cover for a LED fake-candle that my daughter uses
as a night-light.
I measured the original cover (we have three of the candles)
using a newly-purchased micrometer and tried to re-create it
in OpenSCAD. I skipped the screw-hole that is for securing
the cover as we don't use that.
I sliced it using Cura and printed it using PETG on our
office 3D printer, a Ender 3. ...

Andrej Shadura: To England by train (part 1)
https://blog.shadura.me/2021/08/10/england-by-train-part-1/
April 22, 2022, 1:25 PM
This post was written in August 2021. Just as I was going to publish it, I received an email from ÖBB stating that due to a railway strike in Germany my night train would be cancelled. Since the rest of the trip has already been booked well in advance, I had to take a plane to Charleroi and a bus to Brussels to catch my Eurostar. Ultimately, I ended up publishing it in April 2022, just as I’m about to leave for a fully train-powered trip to the UK once again.
Before the pandemic started, I pl...

Russell Coker: Joplin Notes
https://etbe.coker.com.au/2022/04/22/joplin-notes/
April 22, 2022, 9:53 AM
In response to my post about Android phones without Google Play [1] I received an email recommending Joplin for notes on Android [2].
Joplin supports storing notes on a number of protocols including Nextcloud and WebDAV. I setup WebDAV because it’s easiest, here is Digital Ocean instructions for WebDAV on Apache [3]. That basically works. One problem for my use case is that the Joplin client doesn’t support accounts on multiple servers and the only released way of sharing notes between accou...

Ritesh Raj Sarraf: Systemd Service Hang
https://www.researchut.com/blog/Systemd_Service_Hang/
April 22, 2022, 7:47 AM
Finally, TIL, what can all be the reason for systemd services to hang indefinitely. The internet is flooded with numerous reports on this topic but no clear answers. So no more uselessly marked workarounds like: systemctl daemon-reload and systemctl-daemon-reexec for this scenario.
The scene would be something along the lines of:

Andy Simpkins: Firmware and Debian
https://blog.koipond.org.uk/archives/325
April 21, 2022, 10:55 PM
There has been a
flurry of activity on the Debian mailing lists ever since Steve
McIntyre raised the issue of including non-free firmware as part of
official Debian installation images.
Firstly I should point out that I am in complete agreement with Steve’s proposal to include non-free firmware as part of an installation image. Likewise I think that we should have a separate archive section for firmware.  Because without doing so it will soon become almost impossible to install onto any new...

Ritesh Raj Sarraf: Btrfs Subvol Fix
https://www.researchut.com/blog/BTRFS_Subvol_Fix/
April 20, 2022, 5:11 PM
There surely is need for better tooling on the BTRFS File System side.
While migrating my setup from one machine to another, this is one issue I came to be aware of, only today, when my backup tool (btrbk) complained about it. Following the pointers, I see the below snippet in btrfs-subvolume manual page.
       A snapshot that was created by send/receive will be read-only, with different last change generation, read-only and with set received_uuid which identifies the subvolume on the

Russell Coker: Android Without Play
https://etbe.coker.com.au/2022/04/20/android-without-play/
April 20, 2022, 9:04 AM
A while ago I was given a few reasonably high-end Android phones to give away. I gave two very nice phones to someone who looks after refugees so a couple of refugee families could make video calls to relatives. The third phone is a Huawei Nova 7i [1] which doesn’t have the Google Play Store. The Nova 7i is a ridiculously powerful computer (8G of RAM in a phone!!!) but without the Google Play Store it’s not much use to the average phone user. It has the “HuaWei App Gallery” which isn’t...

Petter Reinholdtsen: geteltorito make CD firmware upgrades a breeze
https://people.skolelinux.org/pere/blog/geteltorito_make_CD_firmware_upgrades_a_breeze.html
April 20, 2022, 9:00 AM
Recently I wanted to upgrade the firmware of my thinkpad, and
located the firmware download page from Lenovo (which annoyingly do
not allow access via Tor, forcing me to hand them more personal
information that I would like).  The
download
from Lenovo is a bootable ISO image, which is a bit of a problem
when all I got available is a USB memory stick.  I tried booting the
ISO as a USB stick, but this did not work.  But genisoimage came to
the rescue.

Steve McIntyre: Firmware - what are we going to do about it?
https://blog.einval.com/2022/04/19#firmware-what-do-we-do
April 19, 2022, 12:24 AM
TL;DR: firmware support in Debian sucks, and we need to change
this. See the "My preference, and rationale" Section below.
In my opinion, the way we deal with (non-free) firmware in Debian is a
mess, and this is hurting many of our users daily. For a long time
we've been pretending that supporting and including (non-free)
firmware on Debian systems is not necessary. We don't want to have
to provide (non-free) firmware to our users, and in an ideal world we
wouldn't need to. However, it's very c...
