In March 2013 I looked at Debian releases used by popcon participants. I’ve just re-done the same analysis. Please see the previous post on this topic for details.
If you are running Debian squeeze or Debian unstable: mpich2 1.3.1 is available in Debian experimental. Add experimental to your /etc/apt/sources.list, then apt-get install mpich2/experimental If you are running Ubuntu natty: mpich2 1.3.1 is available in the universe repository. If you are running Ubuntu lucid or Ubuntu maverick: a backport has been requested, but they […]
As I did since 2007, I will be attending Debconf again this year. I have been quite busy recently, and am lagging behind in some of my Debian work, so I plan to use Debconf to get stuff done, not just socialize and attend talks. Here is my TODO list, basically by order of “willingness […]
He might too shy to tell everybody, but the world must know. Luca Capello successfully defended his PhD thesis today at Université de Genève, getting a “Très Bien” mention. I must admit that my last biology lesson was 13 years ago, so I’m not sure I can really comment on his work on Vomeronasal Receptors: […]
I’ve been playing with virtualization, and KVM in particular. However, I’m running into an interesting problem. Below is how Ubuntu Netbook Remix look inside my KVM (either using virt-viewer, virt-manager or directly KVM to display the VM). Note how the top panel is fine.

The following information is based on Anomos’ website. Funnily, when you go to that website, the default page is a blog that doesn’t answer the “What’s anomos?” question. The answer to that question is available on the About page, on this blog post, and those slides. So, Anomos seems like a good answer to the […]
Sorry, this post will be in french. I don’t think it will be interesting for many non-french-speaking readers, and the matters are a bit too technical to write it in english. If I have time, I’ll translate it, I promise. Au milieu de la journée de mobilisation d’aujourd’hui, un grand nombre des personnels des universités […]
nice Q&A about nmap. Thanks Pierre!
I received a new laptop, a Dell Latitude E4300. I was a bit anxious with its level of support on Linux, because it only recently started being shipping, and it’s full of recent Intel hardware. Also, with lenny being frozen for 5 months, we are currently a bit behind regarding hardware support. I installed lenny […]
