I'm happy to finally announce an open-source (GNU GPL), cross-platform (Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Windows, ...) logic analyzer software package myself and Bert Vermeulen have been working on for quite a long time now: sigrok (it groks your signals).

HOWTO: Using OpenVPN on Debian GNU/Linux

Uwe Hermann - Sat, 24/12/2011 - 12:02am

Here's a quick HOWTO for setting up an OpenVPN server and client on any (Debian, in this case) Linux machine of your choice. I'm running an OpenVPN server on a box at home, and a client on my laptop, so I can securely route all my laptop traffic through my OpenVPN server, no matter where I am.

Downloading non-DRM Amazon MP3s on Linux using clamz

Uwe Hermann - Sun, 06/11/2011 - 12:16am

I recently wanted to buy some MP3 files from Amazon (a whole album in my case, but you can also just buy single MP3 files if you want). Digital music downloads from Amazon are often much cheaper than buying the physical CD (from Amazon), and you can also instantly get the stuff within seconds, without having to wait for the physical CD to be shipped to your place.

Here's a quick summary of the release announcement. Some of the noteworthy news items include:

How to setup an encrypted USB-disk software-RAID-1 on Debian GNU/Linux using mdadm and cryptsetup

Uwe Hermann - Thu, 25/02/2010 - 5:10pm

This is what I set up for backups recently using a cheap USB-enclosure which can house 2 SATA disks and shows them as 2 USB mass-storage devices to my system (using only one USB cable). Without any further introduction, here goes the HOWTO:

First, create one big partition on each of the two disks (/dev/sdc and /dev/sdd in my case) of the exact same size. The cfdisk details are omitted here.

Quick public service announcement (which probably comes a bit too late, sorry):

Only few days ago a long-standing bug in coreboot, the Free Software x86 BIOS/fimware project, has been fixed: Adding support for a laptop/notebook.

Note to self: Missing lvm2 and cryptsetup packages lead to non-working initrd very, very soon

Uwe Hermann - Mon, 23/11/2009 - 11:00pm

I recently almost died from a heart attack because after a really horrible crash (don't ask), Debian unstable on my laptop wouldn't boot anymore. The system hung at "Waiting for root filesystem...", and I was in panic mode as I feared I lost all my data (and as usual my backups were waaay too old).

coreboot on Linux Journal

Nice coreboot news — the Free Software x86 firmware ("BIOS") is featured on the cover of issue 186 of the Linux Journal.

Using CRM114 for spam filtering on Debian GNU/Linux

Uwe Hermann - Tue, 22/09/2009 - 1:10pm

I've been using CRM114 as spam filter for a while now, and I'm quite happy with it. Due to bug #529720 though (incompatible upstream file format changes) I decided to start my setup from scratch with a recent CRM114 version from unstable. Here's a short HOWTO, hope it's useful for others.

First you need to install crm114 and set up a few files in your $HOME directory.
