Ubuntu 10.04 LTS released


The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Long-Term Support).
This release incorporates the Desktop Edition and the Server Edition. The
Server Edition can be used on physical servers, on Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud
(UEC), and on Amazon's EC2 public cloud. Codenamed "Lucid Lynx", 10.04 LTS
continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest
open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux
distribution.



Looks like it's a Friday night upgrade for me! (I know how to party.)

I've been using the beta on my old ThinkPad T60p and it's been working great, so my System76 Serval Pro will likely get the new hotness tonight.

Make sure and read the links in the full post on the mailing list to see all the new features. Congrats to the Ubuntu team for another fantastic release.

Woo-hoo! Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit is installed on my Dell Vostro 1510 and all is well. Great release. I'm psyched to tinker some more, but trying to get a little work done first ;-)

Did you have any issues with external monitors on your T60p. I got it running using the Grub "nomodeset" fix but then I couldn't use the Desktop Effects. Just curious if you had a similar experience. Thx....

Actually I haven't tried external monitors with my T60p--that machine is pretty much my beater computer at this point. Both my netbook (Asus 1000HE) and my System76 Serval work fine on external monitors though. I'll give the T60p a shot when I get a chance and let you know what I find.

Installing and Configuring NextPVR as a Replacement for Windows Media Center

If you follow me on Google+ you'll know I had a recent rant about Windows Media Center, which after running fine for about a year suddenly decided as of January 29 it was done downloading the program guide and by extension was therefore done recording any TV shows.

I'll spare you more ranting and simply say that none of the suggestions I got (which I appreciate!) worked, and rather than spending more time figuring out why, I decided to try something different.

NextPVR is an awesome free (as in beer, not as in freedom unfortunately ...) PVR application for Windows that with a little bit of tweaking handily replaced Windows Media Center. It can even download guide data, which is apparently something WMC no longer feels like doing.

Background I wound up going down this road in a rather circuitous way. My initial goal for the weekend project was to get Raspbmc running on one of my Raspberry Pis. The latest version of XBMC has PVR functionality so I was anxious to try that out as a …

Setting Up Django On a Raspberry Pi

This past weekend I finally got a chance to set up one of my two Raspberry Pis to use as a Django server so I thought I'd share the steps I went through both to save someone else attempting to do this some time as well as get any feedback in case there are different/better ways to do any of this.

I'm running this from my house (URL forthcoming once I get the real Django app finalized and put on the Raspberry Pi) using dyndns.org. I don't cover that aspect of things in this post but I'm happy to write that up as well if people are interested.

The Definitive Guide to CouchDB Authentication and Security

With a bold title like that I suppose I should clarify a bit. I finally got frustrated enough with all the disparate and seemingly incomplete information on this topic to want to gather everything I know about this topic into a single place, both so I have it for my own reference but also in the hopes that it will help others.Since CouchDB is just an HTTP resource and can be secured at that level along the same lines as you'd secure any HTTP resource, I should also point out that I will not be covering things like putting a proxy in front of CouchDB, using SSL with CouchDB, or anything along those lines. This post is strictly limited to how authentication and security work within CouchDB itself.CouchDB security is powerful and granular but frankly it's also a bit quirky and counterintuitive. What I'm outlining here is my understanding of all of this after taking several runs at it, reading everything I could find on the Internet (yes, the whole Internet!), and a great deal…
