I have known windigo for more than 4 years as a virtual acquaintance, first on the Linux Outlaws forums, then on identica, and finally on the Federated Statusnet network. It was awesome when he and his girlfriend stopped by my house today to visit while on a massive road trip around the United States. We took advantage of the opportunity to record a brief conversation for Hacker Public Radio. Here's a photo of windigo, me, and Dingle the cat between us.

HPR1258: How to Build a Desktop Computer

2013-05-28 :: conman53095.nospam@nospam.yahoo.com (Toby Meehan)

Show Notes for How to Build a Desktop Build vs Buy Do you have the interest and time to research and build a desktop computer? You probably won't save a lot of money, but with all the research you may get better quality parts. You will know exactly what's in your system should issues or questions ever arise. Gather requirements Define the purpose of the system Use: gaming, video/photo processing, web browsing/documents Applications should drive most of your hardware decisions. Data protection: how much data, how resilient (on-site mirroring, RAID vs. off‐site) Power protection: surge suppression, UPS Physical protection: keyed case lock (disassembly prevention), cable anchor Define a budget Decide what are you willing to spend (max, target, min)   Check off‐the‐shelf models to get the going price points Understand there are trade‐offs and if everything is needed at once Adding capabilities later can help with sticker shock If you have time, buy components when prices dip Be careful about return policies...some 30 or 90 days Learn about current technology & prices Core: CPU, memory, motherboard, graphics controller, power supply Storage: solid state drives, rotating hard drives, removable media (DVD, USB) Auxiliary: audio, monitor, power protection, web cam, printer/scanner, backup drive Interfaces: SATA, IDE, DDR2, DDR3, PCI, PCI‐e, USB, eSATA Determine approximate price range Where to research this stuff: Wikipedia, Tom's Hardware, Anandtech, Specs on vendor web sites Where to shop: NewEgg.com, Amazon.com, Dell.com Understand compatibility Hardware‐Hardware compatibility Check qualified hardware list (QHL) on CPU/memory/motherboard Also known as CPU support list, memory support list, qualified vendor list, etc. If you can stick to the QHL parts, h/w compatibility is more assured Hardware‐Operating System compatibility Drivers, either built into the OS or from vendor web site Pay attention to 32‐bit vs. 64‐bit in both operating systems and drivers Operating System‐Application compatibility I'm not going to address this, but it is something to research and understand. Define what components you need You will need the core and storage components. If you have components (particularly auxiliary components) from a previous system, you may find you can use them with the new system. Speakers, printer, and monitors are all prime candidates. Steps CPU Decide on CPU brand (typically Intel or AMD) Decide on CPU model, which is dictated by your needs and budget CPU will dictate motherboard socket type Be sure to buy CPU in box set so it includes CPU fan & heat‐sink. Otherwise, you'll need to figure out the thermal dissipation needs and physical dimension limitations of the case in order to select an appropriate 3rd party CPU fan & heat‐sink. This can involve liquid cooling solutions. I'm not covering thermal solutions in detail here. Motherboard Narrow search to motherboards with socket type that matches CPU. Decide on motherboard form factor (ATX, Mini‐ATX, Micro‐ATX, Mini‐ITX, etc.). See Wikipedia. Video on‐board or discrete. If on‐board, check if it has dedicated memory or borrows memory from main system. If it borrows from the main system, you may want to increase your memory size. Recommend using discrete if 3‐D requirements exist. You can go discrete later, but you'll have wasted money on the motherboard. If discrete, ensure motherboard has enough high‐end PCI‐e slots for your needs. Audio on‐board, discrete or external. If on‐board, check motherboard has suitable output ports for your needs. If discrete, ensure motherboard has a slot for the audio card. If external audio system will be used, make sure motherboard has ports to support it. WiFi / Blue Tooth While a few motherboards have these, they are generally considered inferior for connectivity and security on a non‐mobile device like a desktop. It's also easy to add a card or USB device to obtain them. Also, when integrated on the motherboard, they are harder to upgrade later. Outputs ports meet your needs (PS2, Parallel, Serial COM, USB, eSATA, S/PDIF, HDMI, Ethernet, etc.) At this point, you search should be fairly narrow – compare prices, read reviews and compare ratings. Decide on motherboard vendor and model Memory Based on motherboard, find matching memory type. DDR2 and DDR3 are the common types. There are 5 memory properties: DDR revision (currently they include DDR, DDR2, and DDR3) Chip Classification (like DDR2‐1333) where the number (1333) is the maximum clock speed (in MHz) the memory chips support, which is halved for real clock speed (666.5MHz). Module Classification (like PC3‐10666) where the number (10666) is the maximum transfer rate (in MB/s). This is typically 8 times the first memory chip classification clock speed, so DDR400 transfers data at 3,200 MB/s. Timing (like 7‐8‐8‐24) measures the time the memory chip delays doing something internally. Voltage (like 1.5v) Note the memory properties are maximums. Actual rates will be lower based on the motherboard. Match the first 3 properties – DDR revision, chip classification and module classification. DDR revision must match. If you can't get an exact match on Chip and Module classifications, make sure the memory module is faster (higher numbers) than the motherboard. If you plan to over‐clock, you'll need to pay attention to all 5 properties, but I'm not going to cover over‐clocking. For more assurance, buy memory that's on the motherboard maker's certified list. Recommend buying memory in higher capacities per module for future expansion. If you have 4 memory module slots which can accept 1G, 2G, and 4G modules, opt for the 4G modules. Recommend that all memory modules be the same size, optimally the same brand/model if possible. Video Card If using on‐board video controller, you've already decided this. If using discrete video card, narrow search to available motherboard slots. For example, if you only have one PCI‐e 16x slot, narrow search to video cards that can use that slot. Don't worry about AMD's CrossfireX or NVIDIA's SLI card linking because you don't have two slots. If you buy a high‐end discrete card or cards, be sure to check the video card vendor's recommended power supply wattage and required power connector. These cards often require a separate power connector from the power supply. Internal Storage By internal storage, I mean storage devices that will be housed inside the computer case. Most motherboards come with an on‐board storage controller, typically SATA 2. Some have an IDE controller for legacy support. Server motherboards may have some version of SCSI or SAS (serial attached storage) controllers. These on‐board controllers are configured from within the BIOS or UEFI. Depending on the motherboard's south bridge chipset, it may support a few RAID levels, usually levels 0 (striping) and 1 (mirroring). Storage devices come in different physical sizes which require different sized bays ‐ 5.25 inch, 3.5 inch, 2.5 inch, and 1.8 inch. These refer the size of the storage medium, not the actual bay size. The 5.25 inch bays come in half‐height versions, which are the standard for CD and DVD drives in todays' computers. The 3.5 inch bays are usually used for floppy or Zip drives...more legacy equipment. See Wikipedia. Storage devices can vary significantly in storage capacity. Often, the larger the storage capacity, the higher the latency in storing and retrieving data. Cache on‐board the disk can mitigate this latency, so larger cache sizes are preferred particularly for large capacity drives. Cache sizes currently include 8MB, 16MB, 32MB and 64MB. With rotating magnetic disks, the speed at which they rotate can also mitigate this latency. Rotation speeds include 5400 rpm, 7200 rpm, and 10000 rpm and 15000 rpm with each step in speed requiring more power and giving off more heat. If you need more than 2 or 3 drives, you'll need to ensure your case has adequate physical space for them and that your power supply is sized appropriately. Case & Power Supply Some cases are bundled with a power supply, which might work great for average to low‐end system configurations. Based on motherboard form factor and internal storage requirements, pick out a computer case. Case features to consider: Power supply location is always in rear, but can be on top or bottom of a tower configuration. If the computer will sit on the floor, having the power supply on the bottom might turn it into a dust bunny haven. Number and type of storage drive bays. Removable and/or washable dust filters. Lighting kits Front panel ports and static suppression The number and size of fans is limited by the case design. Typically a case will come with one rear fan, but most offer front, side, or top vents where fans can be mounted. Fan sizes range from 25mm to 250mm, with popular sizes at 80mm, 92mm, 120mm and 140mm. Make sure power supply is sized correctly: Physical dimensions fits in case (beware “slim” power supplies for smaller form factor cases). Wattage output, which is driven by video cards and number of internal storage devices. Connectors required by the motherboard, CPU fan, case fans, video card and internal storage devices. Without a discrete video card and 2‐3 internal storage devices, 300‐400 Watts power supplies are typical. If getting a discrete video card, check on its power requirements. Power supplies also have efficiency ratings under the "80 PLUS" certifications, which span from vanilla 80 PLUS, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. See Wikipedia for more info. …

HPR1255: A life in a software project

2013-05-23 :: garjola.nospam@nospam.garjola.net (garjola)

A friend of mine wrote a blog post the day of his 40th birthday. The title was "Version 4.0 is out!". I found it very interesting, as he told the history of his life as if it was a software project with a major x.0 release every 10th birthday. …

HPR1254: X2go Remote Linux server/client

2013-05-22 :: jwp5.nospam@nospam.hotmail.com (JWP)

With x2go you can access your desktop using another computer -- that means both LAN and internet connections. The transmission is done using the ssh protocol, so it is encrypted. By using the free nx libraries from NoMachine, a very acceptable performance in both speed and responsiveness is achieved. Even an ISDN connection runs smoothly. This makes it is possible to connect your laptop to any computer with the environment, applications, and performance of the remote desktop. It is also possible to have a bunch of computers connected to a single server (terminal-server, thin-client). Clients are available for Linux (Qt4), Windows, and Mac. The latter two can be downloaded directly as binary from the x2go homepage. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/X2go http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/start http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/wiki:repositories:start https://launchpad.net/~x2go/+archive/stable …

HPR1252: The Long Road To Linux

2013-05-20 :: beeza.nospam@nospam.easthope-documentation.com (Beeza)

Over about 30 years Beeza has been a software developer and tester, a system designer and technical author. In that time he's worked with a wide range of software, hardware and technologies. From DOS and the early days of Windows and the Mac, through to his conversion to Linux, he's seen great changes in the way we develop software and use computers. Not all the changes have necessarily been for the better, though. For anyone who's been around the IT world for a while, this may be a short trip down memory lane. For relative newcomers, it may come as a surprise to discover just how much was achieved years ago with so few resources. …

HPR1248: Frank Bell Achieves Enlightenment Adventures with E17 Pt One

2013-05-14 :: frank.nospam@nospam.pineviewfarm.net (Frank Bell)

There was great rejoicing in the Linux community when the Enlightenment Desktop, v. 0.17 (AKA E17), was released recently. It was the first major upgrade in well over a decade to a desktop environment that many remembered fondly for its commitment to a visually pleasing computing experience. Frank Bell describes how he started using Enlightenment and what he has encountered so far. In this, the first of two parts, he addresses installing Enlightenment, Enlightenment's "first-run" dialog, the structure of the desktop, the menu, and the management applications and windows on the desktop. Part Two will focus on the nitty-gritty of configuring the appearance and behavior of Enlightenment.

This brings new hosts and returning hosts to the top of the queue to encourage their efforts, and it also spreads out shows submitted in batches and gives a wider variety of hosts. Once a host is determined, the first show uploaded by that host is released. If you wish your shows to be released in a particular order then make sure you make that obvious in the title and by emailing admin@hackerpublicradio.org. You can swap the order of the shows but it involves additional effort and is frowned upon :). WHERE POSSIBLE WE WILL NOT RELEASE SHOWS FROM THE SAME HOST IN ANY ONE WEEK. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ http://hackerpublicradio.org/calendar.php#synicated_shows Syndicated Shows We will continue to promote new podcasts and other creative commons material but due to a lack of slots, we are only releasing material created exclusively for HPR. If there is a piece of creative commons content that you would like to promote, then feel free to record a regular show where you introduce the content and explain why it is important and providing links to where we can get more information. THESE SHOWS CAN BE RELEASED EITHER UNDER YOUR OWN NAME OR UNDER THE GENERIC HOST CALLED "VARIOUS CREATIVE COMMONS WORKS" (HOSTID 158) ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The amendment "WHERE POSSIBLE WE WILL NOT RELEASE SHOWS FROM THE SAME HOST IN ANY ONE WEEK." had been included prior to the changes in January, but I would like to put it back. The amendment "THESE SHOWS WILL CAN BE RELEASED EITHER UNDER YOUR OWN NAME OR UNDER THE GENERIC HOST CALLED "VARIOUS CREATIVE COMMONS WORKS" was discussed in the mail list under the title of "Various Creative Commons Works" but the discussions got derailed. Please keep discussion to these two points only. As always Silence, or no comment is assumed to be approval. Ken. Also the addition of the following text to the Scheduling Rules: Please be aware that we cannot predict when your show will be out, but sooner of later it will be released. Sometimes a new host will jump to the top of the queue, while other hosts seem to be waiting a long time. This is because all the shows at HPR are scheduled according to the Scheduling Guidelines, which apply to everyone without exception.

HPR1240: Doomsday Rule

2013-05-02 :: catintp.nospam@nospam.yahoo.com (Charles in NJ)

HPR Episode: Doomsday Perpetual Calendar Method What is it? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomsday_rule (due to John H. Conway, a mathematician born in Liverpool) * He's done other research that hackers might like to check out. * Look up the "Game of Life" and "cellular automata". * There may be episodes on these topics, but those should come with visualization software. John H. Conway http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Horton_Conway Game of Life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway%27s_Game_of_Life Doomsday Rule lets you find the day of the week for any date * Dates in history, in immediate past or in future are all good. * Works for both the Gregorian and Julian calendar. - I'll only be looking at Gregorian dates for now. - Method should work well for dates from 1800 onward. - If dates for non-Gregorian calendars are converted to their (extrapolated) Gregorian equivalents, this method works. Wikipedia entry (includes recent optimization): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomsday_algorithm Why do this? It came up in Episode Zero of my "N Days" show on calendar counting, where I used it without explanation. http://hackerpublicradio.org/eps.php?id=1143 Demos: Check these answers at www.day-calculator.com * Some listeners may now adjourn to the latest Linux Outlaws episode. Method: Get Century Anchor Day, calculate offset for the year to find Doomsday's reference location for current year, find closest reference date to target date, and count off to the answer. a) Isaac Newton's date of birth: - 25 December 1642 - 1600's Tuesday. Year 42 = 3*12 + 6 and (6/4) = 1. Hence 3 + 6 + 1 = 10 for an offset of 3. Tuesday + 3 = Friday. 12/12 is Friday, so 12/26 is Friday Newton was born 12/25, so that was a Thursday b) My grandfather's date of birth: - 20 January 1898 - 1800's anchor is Friday. Year 98 = 8*12 + 2, (2/4) = 0. So 8 + 2 + 0 = 10 gives an offset of 3. - 1898 wasn't a leap year, so 10 January was Monday - That means 17 January was a Monday, too. - So 20 January 1898 was a Thursday. c) A wedding anniversary that I like to remember: 15 May 2000 - 2000 has anchor day on Tuesday, and no offset. - Rule: "I work 9 to 5 at 7-11", so 9 May (16 May) are on Tuesday. - 15 May 2000 was a Monday. True. 'Twas the day after Mother's Day. d) My parent's wedding day: 19 May 1957 - 1900 has anchor day Wednesday. 57 = 4*12 + 9 and (9/4) = 2. - So 4 + 9 + 2 = 15 or an offset of 1. - 9 May is Thursday, as is 16 May. The 19th is 3 days later. - So 19 May 1957 was a Sunday. Plan: I'm going to reveal the magic behind this, and introduce some mental shortcuts to help you learn to do this in your head. If you can master the 12's row in your times tables up to 8 times 12, and the 4's row up the 20s or 30s, and you can tell time on a 12-hour clock, you should be able to do this. We're not in school, so paper and pencil to track the numbers, and finger-counting offsets to days of the week are all allowed. Explanation: 1. Certain memorable dates fall on the same day of the week as "Doomsday" = last day of February, whatever that is. 2. Dates recycle every 400 years, and Doomsday Anchor dates by Century are 1600: Tuesday, 1700: Sunday, 1800: Friday, 1900: Wednesday. 3. That's enough, but to simplify mental math notice 12-year cycles. - Every completed 12 years pushes the days of the week ahead by +1 - Each year within the current incomplete cycle adds +1 - Each leap year in current cycle adds +1 (including current year) 4. Doomsday dates are: a. January 10 and Doomsday (last day of February) b. Odd months: Add +4 through July, then subtract 4. 7 March, 9 May, 11 July 5 September, 7 November c. Even months are reflexive: 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, 12/12 See the attached spreadsheets for examples and annotated calculations. - LibreOffice Calc: 229-Charles-in-NJ-Doomsday-Rule-v1.ods - Excel 5/95 'xls' for LibreOffice or Gnumeric: 229-Charles-in-NJ-Doomsday-Rule.xls - Gnumeric: 229-Charles-in-NJ-Doomsday-Rule-v1.gnumeric Bonus Content: - Excel VBA module: 229-Charles-in-NJ-Doomsday-Rule.vbaxl.bas * Import the .bas module * Input is an Excel "Date" object * Very proprietary formats and code, but some people use it. - Python: doomsday.py * Contains two functions: Each returns a string value for the day of the week, e.g., "Sunday" dayOfWeek(year, month, day): Doomsday is last day of February, and the (month, day) are converted to relative ordinal dates. For leap years, we have to push both Doomsday and any target date after 28 February up by one for the leap day. dayOfWeek2(year, month, day): Doomsday date anchors are computed for each month, so leap years require adjustments to the anchors for January and February to account for the shift in the February ending date. Later months are fine. - Script for GNU 'bc': doomsday.bc is a bc 'port' of the Python code * Differences: Return value is a number from 0-6 that represents the day of the week by its relative position. 0 = Sunday, 1 = Monday, 2 = Tuesday, 3 = Wednesday, 4 = Thursday, 5 = Friday, 6 = Saturday * In a shell, run 'bc' with the filename as an argument: catintp@Derringer:~$ bc doomsday.bc - This loads the two functions in the file. You can invoke them within 'bc' like any other function: dayofweek(1981, 5, 15) dayofweek2(1642, 12, 25) dayofweek(2013, 11, 22) dayofweek2(2059, 5, 19) - Alternate Script for GNU 'bc': doomsday2.bc * Return value is still a number from 0-6 that represents the day of the week by its relative position. * Uses a side effect to print a human-friendly answer. * English only, but localisation should be easy.

HPR1239: HPR Saturday Sessions: What is hacking?

2013-05-01 :: nido.nospam@nospam.foxserver.be (Nido Media)

Nido is joined by dude-man, Epicanis, and artv61 to discuss how one could or should define "Hacker" and "Hacking", particularly in reference to the "Hackers" that Hacker Public Radio episodes are intended to be "of interest to". Unfortunately, all participants seemed to be largely in agreement with each other, so there isn't enough contention to make the discussion dramatic. Listeners may find the discussion insightful anyway, and we do come up with some suggestions and ultimately encourage everyone to be a lot more public about using the words "hacker" and "hacking" as much as possible outside the context of criminal and computer-programming activity until outdated dictionaries finally update their definitions. Although Nido deserves the credit for Saturday Sessions, recording, cleanup, and editing of today's session was done by Epicanis, so if the sound sucks it's all his fault and not Nido's. Same goes for these show notes. The XKCD comic that was mentioned may be found here: http://xkcd.com/242/. …

HPR1238: Word processors are overrated

2013-04-30 :: johan.vervloet.nospam@nospam.gmail.com (johanv)

Word processors are overrated. Too often they are used instead of better alternatives. For example: to write a report, to describe a workflow or a vision, a lot of people just grab Microsoft Word. Which is a bad idea. Should you use LibreOffice Writer then? OpenOffice? Maybe Google docs? They are not much better. If the focus of your text is on its content, if the structure of your text is important, if the way the text is laid out is less important than the consistency of the lay-out, or if you want to collaborate with other people, you should not use a typical mainstream word processor.

HPR1233: Playing Ingress

2013-04-23 :: epicanis+hpr.nospam@nospam.dogphilosophy.net (Epicanis)

This is the first of two or maybe three parts on the subject on Ingress, which was released into invitation-only beta-testing by Google in November of 2012. Ingress is a world-spanning location-based game set in a world somewhere between the real one and a fictional one that is almost exactly like the real one except with space-alien mind control conspiracies. This episode is purely about "playing the game". The follow-up episode will be more about the underlying technology and things you (and Google) might be able to do with it besides the core gameplay. There may be a third part if there is enough interest. A final note - the app version that I mention in the show was upgraded literally about 5 minutes after I finished editing and started to prepare this show for upload. (And, yes, I'm using "literally" correctly - I mean I finished exporting the file from audacity, went to check Google+, and within 300 seconds someone was mentioning that a new version was out). It does seem to resolve some of the problems I mentioned, just as I speculated that it might. I'll follow up on this and any subsequent updates in the followup episode. Comments and suggestions and demands for more episodes are welcome, nay, encouraged either on this episode's comments at hackerpublicradio.org or on my own blog at http://hpr.dogphilosophy.net . Thanks for listening! …

HPR1229: Chromebook Acer C7 Review

2013-04-17 :: reiststefan.nospam@nospam.gmail.com (Helvetin)

I got into Linux after listening to lots of podcasts during my work commute and I am one of those non-technical people listening that after lots of worrying finally installed Ubuntu and found out that it works pretty easily. A few month ago I got a raspberry pi and played with its Arch Linux version and very recently got the Acer C7 Chromebook and immediately put Chrubuntu on it, which is also how I am recording this. So here is my strange problem. I currently have a Swiss-German keyboard layout at work, at the previous job I had an standard US keyboard and I am pretty sure that this chromebook has a UK keyboard. So I needed to find a really fast way to switch at first the UK keyboard layout to the Swissgerman layout and then also have a change to change to the US keyboard easily, because it happens ... you may believe it or not ... that some things I just know where they are in the US layout better than the Swiss layout and vice versa. This is not really a problem if you stick with Unity. You go to System Settings, Keyboard Layout and add the relevant. Where are those System settings now? setxkbmap is the command. In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules I found all the layouts (ch for Swiss and us for American layout). I added the option to toggle between ch and us by click both shift keys. So the full command as alias is Swiss='setxkbmap -option 'grp:shifts_toggle' 'ch,us''. To not write the entire thing you can add this as a alias in .bashrc or probably put somewhere in a startup file, so you don't have to worry about it. Further configurations and installations: To enable the 2nd screen use command: xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto --right-of LVDS1 Change hostname by editing nano /etc/hostname (by default it is Chrubuntu) Install cmatrix just for fun Installations: Desktop Environment openbox, lxde, i3 just to play around - Terminator as terminal emulation - ranger as file manager - s3cmd for offsite backup, although dropbox and spideroak work too (s3cmd works also on raspberry pi) - encryption with encfs and truecrypt …

HPR1228: Utilizing Maximum Space on a Cloned BTRFS Partition

2013-04-16 :: fiftyonefifty.nospam@nospam.linuxbasement.com (FiftyOneFifty)

Utilizing Maximum Space on a Cloned BTRFS Partition by FiftyOneFifty If you clone a disk to a disk, Clonezilla will increase (decrease) the size of each partition proportional to the relative size of the drives. I wanted to keep my / the same size and have no swap (new drive was SSD), so I did a partion to partion clone instead Created partions on the new SSDs with a GParted Live CD, 12Gb root (Ext4) and the remained for /home, (btrfs, because I planned to move to SSD from the start, and last summer only btrfs supported TRIM) After cloning /dev/sda1 to /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sda2 to /dev/sdb2 using Clonezilla, I inspected the new volumes with the GParted Live CD /dev/sdb2 had 40% unaccessable space, i.e., the usable space was the same size as the old /home volume GParted flagged the error and said I could correct it from the menu (Partition->Check) but btrfs doesn't support fschk, so it didn't work Tried shrinking the volume in GParted and re-expanding it to take up the free space, also didn't work. Discovered 'btrfs utility' and that it was supported by the GParted Live CD Make a mount point sudo mkdir /media/btrfs Mount the btrfs volume sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /media/btrfs Use btrfs utility to expand the btrfs file system to the maximun size of the volume sudo btrfs filesystem resize max /media/btrfs Unmount the btrfs volume sudo umount /dev/sdb2 Rechecked /dev/sdb2 with GParted, I no longer had unaccessible space …

HPR1220: Cinnarch 64 bit, Installation Review

2013-04-04 :: fiftyonefifty.nospam@nospam.linuxbasement.com (FiftyOneFifty)

Howdy folks, this is FiftyOneFifty, and today I wanted to talk about my experiences installing the 64 bit version of Cinnarch net edition on a dual core notebook. Cinnarch of course is a relatively new Arch based distro running the Cinnamon fork of Gnome. I had previously installed Arch proper on this notebook, but when I rebooted to the hard drive, I lost the Ethernet connection. This is not uncommon, but there the notebook sat while until I had time to work the problem. I wanted to start using the notebook, and I'd heard good things about Cinnarch, so it seemed like a simple solution. I went into knowing Cinnarch was in alpha, so i shouldn't have been surprised when an update broke the system less then a week after the install, but that comes later in my story. Complete show notes are available here: http://hackerpublicradio.org/eps/hpr1220/index.html …

HPR1216: Digtal Data Transfer

2013-03-31 :: ken.fallon.nospam@nospam.gmail.com (Ken Fallon)

In this the first in a series exploring The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model (ISO/IEC 7498-1) OSI model From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_model The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model (ISO/IEC 7498-1) is a product of the Open Systems Interconnection effort at the International Organization for Standardization. It is a prescription of characterizing and standardizing the functions of a communications system in terms of abstraction layers. Similar communication functions are grouped into logical layers. A layer serves the layer above it and is served by the layer below it. For example, a layer that provides error-free communications across a network provides the path needed by applications above it, while it calls the next lower layer to send and receive packets that make up the contents of that path. Two instances at one layer are connected by a horizontal connection on that layer. In today's show Ken starts off with a practical example of Layer One, the The Physical Layer, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_layer. Although we are limited to audio for the purposes of the show, the same techniques could and are used across the light spectrum. …

LinuxFest Northwest is an annual event produced by the Bellingham Linux Users Group, and volunteers from other northwest U.S. open source users groups. It is held on the campus of Bellingham Technical College (directions at the BTC website under ABOUT BTC). The Fest features Linux and open source experts and aficionados sharing their experience and enthusiasm with a wide variety of free and open source technologies. This generally means that there will be a lot of smart people who come with something to share and a desire to learn. This is a low cost/high value event that's held on a weekend, so there are also folks who don't usually go to commercial conferences. All in all, it's a lot of fun with fresh faces on eager people. …

HPR1213: LiTS 026: units

2013-03-26 :: dann.nospam@nospam.tllts.org (Dann)

Linux In The Shell aims to explore the use of many commands a user can run in the Bash Shell. Tutorials include a write up with examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command. The website is http://www.linuxintheshell.org/ Episode 026 - units Last episode of Linux in the Shell discussed the use of the bc command to perform math on the command line. This episode continues in suit with a mathematical theme picking up from the last examples of converting between different number systems or units. While bc can help you convert between units if you know the formulas, there is another program which will do it all for you units. Chances are units is not installed by default but a simple check in your package manager should allow you to add units to your daily tool set.

Here are the raw commands for Icecast, Ices, and Ices-cc: #start the streaming server icecast -c /etc/icecast.xml -B #start the mp3 stream ices-cc -c /etc/ices-cc.conf -F /home/dj/playlist.txt -R -b 96 -m mp3 -P radio # start the ogg stream ices /etc/ices/ices-playlist.xml Here is the code for the simple HTML5 player that Klaatu mentions in the episode. It's straight HTML5 but in case you're new to HTML5 then this could be useful: <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <title>My Great Streaming Server Example dot Com</title> </head> <div id="player"> <audio width="100px" height="200px" autoplay loop controls autobuffer preload="auto"> <source src="http://example.com:8000/mp3" type="audio/mp3" /> <source src="http://example.com:8000/ogg" type="audio/ogg" /> </audio> </div> </body> </html> Klaatu is indebted to Kwisher, Delwin, and Ruji for their help on this series. …

HPR1204: My Magnatune Downloader

2013-03-13 :: dave.morriss.nospam@nospam.gmail.com (Dave Morriss)

The Problem I'm a fan of Magnatune (http://magnatune.com/) and have been buying music from them for 7 or 8 years. The Magnatune website itself is good for exploring and downloading, and interfaces for browsing and purchasing are available in a number of players on Linux. I have direct experience of: Amarok: allows you to browse, purchase, examine artist information and album details. Rhythmbox: the plugin, which used to allow browsing and purchasing, is currently unavailable, but is apparently due to return soon. Gnome Music Player Client: (a front-end to the Music Player Daemon, mpd) offers a Magnatune browser plugin Magnatune Web 2.0 player: a web-based tool which will browse, play and download Magnatune music. Magnatune Android player: a fairly basic browser and player for Android 2.0 and up. The Magnatune Web 2.0 player is the best of the bunch as far as I am concerned, particularly since it allows me to explore the music collection whilst listening to streamed music at the same time. However, none of these interfaces provide me with exactly what I want in terms of the download process, so I decided to write my own. The Plan I currently host my music on my HP Proliant microserver, share it across the home network, and play it with the Music Player Daemon (http://sourceforge.net/projects/musicpd/) on my desktop system. I normally keep the album cover image, artwork and related material in the same directory as the album itself, and I want to be able to save all files in their appropriate places automatically. Magnatune provides an API which is documented at http://download.magnatune.com/info/api, though this information is only available to members. Data is available in several formats: XML, SQlite and MySQL. Design I didn't want to launch into building a full-blown application, especially since I only needed a downloader, so I decided to create a collection of scripts. I decided to use the XML data organised by album. This is updated on about a weekly or two weekly basis, and there is a signalling mechanism through a downloadable file containing a checksum. When this changes the large data file has changed and can be downloaded. At the time of writing I simply run this by hand when I receive an email alert from Magnatune. Magnatune uses an unique key made from the artist and album names which it refers to as the SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) or albumsku. They use this as an URL component and in XML tags. I use it to identify the stuff I download and to keep a simple inventory. I decided to write some basic scripts: To download the catalogue To extract information from the catalogue To download an album To unpack the downloaded items into the target directory I wanted to learn more about manipulating XML data, so I decided to use XSL, the Extensible Stylesheet Language. This lets you define stylsheets for XML data, including ways of identifying XML components with XPath and of transforming XML with XSLT. I have included a number of links to the resources I used in the shownotes. Repository I have placed all of the scripts, their associated files, and HTML and PDF README files (extended shownotes) in a gitorious repository. This can be browsed at https://gitorious.org/magnatune-downloader or, if a copy is required it can be obtained with the command: git clone https://git.gitorious.org/magnatune-downloader/magnatune-downloader.git This makes a local git repository containing a copy of all of the files in the current directory. Scripts update_albums: a Bash script to download a new version of the album catalogue, as a bzipped XML file, if it is different from the current version. It generates a summary of the catalogue for simple searching using XSLT. report_albumsku: a Bash script to take a SKU code and look up the album details in the XML file. get_album: a Bash script to download an album, cover images and artwork. It takes the SKU as an argument and uses it to make an URL for an XML file which points at all of the components, and this is downloaded (with authentication). The script then parses this file to get the necessary URLs for downloading. I only use the OGG format but it could easily collect any or all formats available from Magnatune. The script records the fact that this particular SKU code has been downloaded so that it isn't collected again in error. All downloaded files are given names beginning with the SKU code and are stored for the installation phase. install_download: a Perl script which unpacks the downloaded zip file to its final destination then adds the cover images and artwork to the same place. I used Perl because it allowed me to query the zip file to determine the name of the directory that was going to be created. Further Developments I have added further scripts to this system since I created it. I have one that synchronises the music files from my workstation to the server, and two that give me a simple wish-list or queue functionality. Since I have a 200GB download limit per month on my broadband contract I try not to download music too often and avoid contention with the rest of the family. My queueing system is used to keep a list of stuff I'd like to buy from Magnatune, and I simply feed the top element from the queue into my download script every week or so. In the future I expect to be refining all of these scripts and making them less vulnerable to errors. For example, I have found a few cases where Magnatune's XML is not valid and this causes the xsltproc tool to fail. I'd like to be able to recover from such errors more elegantly than I'm doing now. At some point I may well be tempted to consolidate all of the current functions into a single Perl script. Disclaimer I have no connections to Magnatune other than being a contented customer.

HPR1203: templer: a static html generator

2013-03-12 :: chess.nospam@nospam.chessgriffin.com (Chess Griffin)

In today's show Chess talks to us about a static html generator written in perl called templer https://github.com/skx/templer http://www.steve.org.uk/ Templer Templer is yet another static site generator, written in Perl. It makes use of the HTML::Template module for performing variable expansion within pages and layouts, along with looping and conditional-statement handling. Templer has evolved over time for my own personal use, but I believe it is sufficiently generic it could be useful to others. My motivation for putting it together came from the desire to change several hand-made, HTML-coded, sites to something more maintainable such that I could easily change the layout in one place. The design evolved over time but the key reason for keeping it around is that it differs from many other simple static-generators in several ways: You may define global variables for use in your pages/layouts. A page may define and use page-specific variables. You may change the layout on a per-page basis if you so wish. This was something that is missing from a lot of competing tools. Conditional variable expansion is supported, via HTML::Template. File contents, shell commands, and file-globs may be used in the templates This allows the trivial creation of galleries, for example. These are implemented via plugins. You may also embed perl code in your pages. Another key point is that the layouts allow for more than a single simple "content" block to be placed into them - you can add arbitrary numbers of optional side-menus, for example. Although this tool was written and used with the intent you'd write your site-content in HTML you can write your input pages in Textile or Markdown if you prefer (these inputs are supported via plugins). …

HPR1200: CJE Computer Jargon Explained 01

2013-03-07 :: alistair.nospam@nospam.amunro.net (b1ackcr0w)

I had an idea for a website that aims to explain as clearly as possible, computing and internet terms that confuse and frustrate people. It came about when a Motorsport Forum Website I work with changed their IP address and some DNS issues caused problems. In the discussion amongst the staff of the site, as soon as the technically minded staff talked about DNS and IPs and Caches, some of the staff who aren't as familiar with the terms either dropped out or even got angry because they felt they were being excluded. That highlighted to me the need for a resource where these terms could be explained in a way that demystifies the jargon for the every man. I am thinking it could be massively useful to have a site where we can use short video files to quickly and effectively explain the who,why,where,when and what of computerspeak, that would otherwise baffle and deter friends, family and colleagues. This idea is little more than a concept at this time. As I make progress towards getting CJA working, I shall post updates on http://amunro.net If you have any comments, suggestions for topics to explain, or if you want to contribute to the site. Please email me or get in touch through amunro.net. …

In this episode I talk about the way I use shell scripting on a day-to-day basis. I am not employed in a technical field, so the fact that I use shell scripts at all surprises most people. I am just a music history professor with an enthusiasm for Linux and free software. Although I have dabbled a bit with Python, I don't feel nearly as comfortable with Python as I do with bash, so all of the scripts I mention in this episode are written for bash.

A physical space of sanctuary is only the first part of the concept, but that's undone if your screen around your text is full of distractions. A distractionless writing application covers the entire screen, separating you from updates, notifications and editing options. ThistleWeb's distractionless environment of choice is Focuswriter, although there's quite a few to choose from. http://gottcode.org/focuswriter/ FocusWriter http://pyroom.org/ PyRoom …

HPR1194: Copying a Printer Definition File Between Systems

2013-02-27 :: fiftyonefifty.nospam@nospam.linuxbasement.com (FiftyOneFifty)

I recently learned where Linux stores the PPD created when you set up a printer and how to copy it between PCs.  I'd like to briefly share that information with you. This is how to copy a printer definition file (equivalent of a printer driver) from a system where the printer is already configured to another system that you want to be able to access the same printer.  Reasons you might need to do this: a.  The normal CUPS (Common Unified Printing System) set up doesn't have the right definition file for your printer.  In rare instances, you might have to download a ppd from the manufacturer or another source.  If so, copying the ppd may be easier than downloading it again. b.  You configure CUPS and find there are no pre-provided printer drivers.  I thought this was the case when I first tried to configure CUPS under Linaro on my ODroidX.   For all intents and purposes, Linaro is an Arm port of mainline Ubuntu (Unity included).  I installed CUPS via Aptitude and tried to configure a printer as I would on any Linux system.  When I got to printer selection, the dropdown to select a manufacturer (the next step would be to choose a model) was greyed out, as was the field to enter a path to a ppd file.  I closed the browser and tried again, and the same thing happened.  This is what prompted me to find out where to find a PPD file on another system and copy it.  I never got to see how it would work, because when I had the ppd file copied over and ready to install, the manufactures and models in CUPS were already populated.  There had bee an update between my first and second attempts to configure CUPS on the ODroidX, but I'd rather say it was a glitch the first time, instead of the ppd's suddenly showing up in the repo. c.  When I installed Arch on another system, I found there was far less options for choosing models, in my instance, there was only one selection for HP Deskjets.  I suspect borrowing the model specific ppd from another distro will increase the functionality of the printer. Copying the ppd 1.  On the computer where the printer is already configured, find the .ppd (Postscript Printer Definition) file you generated (filename will be the same as the printer name) in /etc/cups/ppd/model (or possibly just /etc/cups/ppd, neither my ODroidX or my Fedora laptop have the "model" folder). 2. Copy to your home folder on the new system (You can't place the file in it's final destination yet, unless you are remoted in as root) 3. According to the post I found on LinuxQuestions.org, CUPS looks for a GZipped file [ gzip -c myprinter.ppd > myprinter.ppd.gz ; the '-c' arguement creates a new file, rather than gzipping the old one, and you use redirection to generate the new file.]  Recall that I never got to try this, because when I re-ran CUPS, the printer selections were already populated.  4. Copy the archived file to /etc/cups/ppd/model on the machine that needs the printer driver Configure CUPS (IP Printer) 1. Open localhost:631 in a browser 2. Click Administration tab 3. Click "Add a Printer" button 4. Log in as an account with root priviledges 5. For Ethernet printers, select "AppSocket/HP JetDirect" button and click "Continue" 6. From the examples presented, " socket://PRINT_SERVER_IP_ADDRESS:9100  " works for me, click continue 7. On the next page, fill in a printer name, this will be the file name for the PPD generated as well as how the printer is labled in the printer select dialog.  The other fields are optional.  Click continue. 8. (I am assuming if the LinuxQuestions post was right, CUPS will find the gz file and show the manuafacturer and model as options) From the list, select a manufacturer, or input the path to your PPD file 9. Select the printer model 9a.I think you could copy over the ppd as is and type the path to it in the field where it asks for a ppd file.  10.Modify or accept the default printer settings Or just copy the ppd and compare the settings in /etc/cups/printers.conf …

HPR1193: Chris Conder Catchup on Broadband for Rural North

#da12bb #HPR In todays show Ken catches up with Chris Conder of the Broadband for Rural North (http://b4rn.org.uk/). We interviewed her back in episode 980 (http://hackerpublicradio.org/eps.php?id=0980) Located in the very pretty but the rural Forest of Bowland in Lancashire in the UK, and tired of putting up with slow ''broadband'' they decided to put together their own network. They tried shared wifi, 3 and 4G mobile networks, MMDS and Satellite yet all proved to be unreliable. So over tea and cake they came up with a plan. A 240 Kilometer (150 mile) plan. A 1 gigabit (1000mb/sec) fiber optic connection plan. A let''s give a connection to every one of the 1700 homes, farms, schools, churches and businesses, in the area plan And while they were at it they designed it to be: redundant with a dual homed backbone direct to the UK''s Internet exchange upgradeable with ducts large enough to take multiple fibers laid through some of the most rugged, mountainous area of Lancashire to get to the people that need it most. (And let''s be clear here, nothing to do with the fact that they will need to use dynamite to blast their way through the rocks.)

HPR1184: Installing Linux without a monitor

2013-02-13 :: admin.nospam@nospam.hackerpublicradio.org (Various Hosts)

Two weeks ago we aired a show about the Sonar Project which is a specialized GNU/Linux distribution to develop and proof accessibility in a modern distribution. This is a test bed and so every single enhancement and discovery will be sent back upstream so that all distributions will be accessible by default. The Sonar Project show was downloaded a total of 14,219 times so far and yet only 127 people have donated. Today it's a case of the blind leading the (simulated) blind as Jonathan Nadeau walks pokey through an install of the Sonar GNU/Linux distribution without a monitor. So listen along and experience what life is like if you are a blind hacker. Press PAUSE to hear what it would be like if Jonathan had not done so much work already. DONATE NOW The project is here http://www.indegogo.com/sonar The Accessible Computing Foundation can be found at theacf.co or http://accessiblecomputingfoundation.org/ The project itself can be found here www.sonar-project.org …

Spring is in the air and valentine's day is just around the corner and Dann Sexy Washko tells us all we need to know about dates on his regular Linux In The Shell series. Linux In The Shell aims to explore the use of many commands a user can run in the Bash Shell. Tutorials include a write up with examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command. The website is http://www.linuxintheshell.org/ The date command will not only display or let you change the current date and time but is the go to utility for getting date and time information into scripts. Evoked by itself the date command will output the current system date based upon the rules of the LC_TIME format. The LC_TIME format defines the rules for formatting dates and times. LC_TIME is a subset of locale which defines the overall environment based upon the chosen language and cultural conventions. You can see the current LC value by issuing the locale command. You can see time specific information for your system by issueing: locale -m LC_TIME http://www.linuxintheshell.org/2013/02/12/episode-023-date/ …

I had a couple of requests for more specific information regarding audio quality in mumble, so here I go through a few of the more common audio issues I've run into with a few tips about what you can try to do about them. These issues are: overdriven audio, quiet audio, distorted audio and choppy audio. Eve bot (http://frymaster.127001.org/mumble) is also mentioned as an alternative to using the loopback settings within mumble for troubleshooting. Thanks to Peter64 for his help with generating the choppy audio segment. …

HPR1176: Intro to editing the Open Street Map

2013-02-03 :: pdailey03.nospam@nospam.gmail.com (pokey)

I'm going to call this an experimental episode. It's a tutorial on eding the Open Street Map at http://www.openstreetmap.org/ . By all rights, this should have been done as a screen cast, but since I have no interest in doing a screen cast, we're going to try something different. For this episode to work, I'll need your cooperation, and for it to make any sence to you, you'll need to be signed into http://www.openstreetmap.org/ . So go ahead and create an account over there (or begin the password reset process) while you're downloading this audio file. You're going to need an account if you want to edit anyway, so I'm not asking for anything you wouldn't be doing anyway. You may find it helpful to have a second tab open to http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features . It won't be much help while listening to the episode, but it is very helpful while editing in general. Some people enjoy finding mistakes. For their enjoyment I have included a few. http://www.openstreetmap.org/ http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features …

HPR1175: how to start irssi in screen after reboot

2013-01-31 :: lord.drachenblut.nospam@nospam.gmail.com (Lord Drachenblut)

In this episode Lord Drachenblut shows us how to start irssi in screen after reboot. crontab -e # opens editor for crontab @reboot /usr/bin/screen -dmUS irc /usr/bin/irssi -d -m Start screen in "detached" mode. This creates a new session but doesn't attach to it. This is useful for system startup scripts. -U Run screen in UTF-8 mode. This option tells screen that your terminal sends and understands UTF-8 encoded characters. It also sets the default encoding for new windows to `utf8'. -S sessionname When creating a new session, this option can be used to specify a meaningful name for the session. This name identifies the session for "screen -list" and "screen -r" actions. It substitutes the default [tty.host] suffix. https://www.gnu.org/software/screen/ http://www.irssi.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron …

The muriatic acid/hydrogen peroxide etching solution can be used multiple times. Store it in plastic or glass containers. The tinting fluid can also be reused. But, it will need to be agitated and or slightly heated (place container in a bath of hot water) before reuse as the mix will settle out. …

Synopsis of the Problem You may hae heard me mention that I purchased a used rack server a couple years ago to help teach myself Linux server administration.  It's an HP DL-380 G3 with dual single core Zeons and 12Gb of RAM.  It came with two 75Gb SCSI drives in RAID1, dedicated to the OS.  Since the seller wanted more for additional internal SCSI drives, and those old server drives are limited to 120Gb anyway, I plugged in a PCI-X SATA adapter and connected  750Gb drive externally and mounted it as /home.  I moved over the 2Gb USB drive I had on my Chumby (as opposed to transferring the files) and it shows up as /media/usb0.  I installed Ubuntu server 10.04 (recently updated to 12.04) because CentOS didn't support the RAID controller out of the box and I had frustrated the lack of support for up to date packages on Debian Lenny on the desktop. With 75Gb dedicated to the OS and application packages, you can imaging my surprise when after a update and upgrade, I had a report that my /boot was full.  It was until I look at the output from fdisk that I remembered the Ubuntu installer created a separate partition for /boot.  At the risk of oversimplifying the purpose of /boot, it is where your current and past kernel files are stored.  Unless the system removes older kernels (most desktop systems seem to) the storage required for /boot will increase with every kernel upgrade. This is the output of df before culling the kernels Filesystem              1K-blocks      Used  Available Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/oriac-root   66860688   6593460   56870828  11% /udev                               6072216           4    6072212   1% /dev tmpfs                              2432376       516    2431860   1% /run none                               5120                 0       5120       0% /run/lock none                              6080936            0    6080936    0% /run/shm cgroup                           6080936            0    6080936   0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/cciss/c0d0p1          233191    224953          0         100% /boot /dev/sda1                       721075720 297668900  386778220  44% /home /dev/sdb1                     1921902868 429219096 1395056772  24% /media/usb0 This directory listing shows I had many old kernels in /boot abi-2.6.32-24-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-35-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-36-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-37-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-38-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-39-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-40-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-41-generic-pae abi-2.6.32-42-generic-pae abi-3.2.0-29-generic-pae abi-3.2.0-30-generic-pae abi-3.2.0-31-generic-pae abi-3.2.0-32-generic-pae config-2.6.32-24-generic-pae config-2.6.32-35-generic-pae config-2.6.32-36-generic-pae config-2.6.32-37-generic-pae config-2.6.32-38-generic-pae config-2.6.32-39-generic-pae config-2.6.32-40-generic-pae config-2.6.32-41-generic-pae config-2.6.32-42-generic-pae config-3.2.0-29-generic-pae config-3.2.0-30-generic-pae config-3.2.0-31-generic-pae config-3.2.0-32-generic-pae grub initrd.img-2.6.32-24-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-35-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-36-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-37-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-38-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-39-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-40-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-41-generic-pae initrd.img-2.6.32-42-generic-pae initrd.img-3.2.0-29-generic-pae initrd.img-3.2.0-30-generic-pae initrd.img-3.2.0-31-generic-pae lost+found memtest86+.bin memtest86+_multiboot.bin System.map-2.6.32-24-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-35-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-36-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-37-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-38-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-39-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-40-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-41-generic-pae System.map-2.6.32-42-generic-pae System.map-3.2.0-29-generic-pae System.map-3.2.0-30-generic-pae System.map-3.2.0-31-generic-pae System.map-3.2.0-32-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-24-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-35-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-36-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-37-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-38-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-39-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-40-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-41-generic-pae vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-42-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-24-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-35-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-36-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-37-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-38-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-39-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-40-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-41-generic-pae vmlinuz-2.6.32-42-generic-pae vmlinuz-3.2.0-29-generic-pae vmlinuz-3.2.0-30-generic-pae vmlinuz-3.2.0-31-generic-pae vmlinuz-3.2.0-32-generic-pae The Solution I Found I ran accross some articles that suggested I could use 'uname -r' to identify my current running kernel (3.2.0-31, the -32 apparently kernel ran out of space before it completed installing) and just delete the files with other numbers.  That didn't seem prudent, and fortunately I've found what seems to be a more elegant solution on upubuntu.com . http://www.upubuntu.com/2011/11/how-to-remove-unused-old-kernels-on.html Verify your current running kernel uname -r Linux will often keep older kernels so that you can boot into and older version from Grub (at least on a desktop).  Fedora has an enviroment setting to tell the OS just how many old kernels you want to maintain [installonly_limit in /etc/yum.conf].  Please leave a comment if you know of an analog in Debian/Ubuntu.  List the kernels currently installed on you system.  dpkg --list | grep linux-image Cull all the kernels but the current one The next line is the key, make sure you copy and paste exaclty from the shownotes.  I'm not much good with regular expressions, but I can see it's trying to match all the packages starting with 'linux-image' but containing a number string different from the one returned by 'uname -r', and remove those packages.  Obviously, this specific commandwill only work with Debian/Ubuntu systems, but you shoild be able to adapt it to your distro.  The '-P' is my contribution, so you can see what packages you are eliminating before the change becomes final. sudo aptitude -P purge ~ilinux-image-[0-9](!`uname -r`) Make sure Grub reflects your changes Finally, the author recomends running 'sudo update-grub2'  to make sure Grub reflects your current kernel status (the above command sees to do this after every operation anyway, but better safe than sorry. It's worth noting I still don't have my -32 kernel update, so I'll let you know if the is anything reqired to get kernel updatesget started again. My df now shows 14%  usage in /boot and a directory listing on /boot only  shows the current kernel files.
