I never thought I’d ever say this, but I must admit that I have become quite a fan of Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code IDE, which is available for a wide range of platforms, including Linux. However, the installation user experience was still somewhat arcane – one had to manually download the RPM package from their […]
Update: this solution does no longer work on later versions of Fedora that switched to Wayland instead of X.org by default. If you don’t want to switch back to X.org and you’re using the GNOME desktop environment, you can enable scroll wheel emulation as outlined here. I’ve been struggling with this for quite some time […]
A while ago, I concluded my first year in the openATTIC-Team at it-novum. We’ve gone through a lot of changes and I am quite proud of what we’ve achieved so far. In many ways, we’re starting this project and product from scratch, and I’m excited to be able to contribute to this effort with my […]
The openATTIC project is currently transitioning to adapting the patch contribution signoff process initially established by the Linux Kernel developers, in which every commit message is “signed” with a special Signed-off-by: tag line, that certifies that the patch contribution meets certain criteria with regards to ownership/copyright and licensing. The git distributed revision control system (DVCS) […]
I’ve always been a fan of Brother, as their devices usually come with decent support for the Linux OS (at least initially). I have an MFC-7460DN Laser Printer / Scanner in my home office, that worked fine with Ubuntu Linux for the past few years. It’s hooked up to my DSL router’s ethernet switch and […]
I finally got around to write down my impressions and notes from the OpenStack Summit 2015 in Tokyo, Japan. You can find my conference report on the openATTIC blog. Enjoy!
In case you were wondering why there were so few posts on this blog in the past weeks: since we’ve set up a dedicated blog for openATTIC, a lot of my recent blogging activity has taken place there. You can find all my posts using the Posts by Lenz Grimmer view.
Back in September, I attended the Kieler Linux Tage, to talk (in German) about how to manage storage on Linux using openATTIC. The presentation was recorded and the final result (in 4K) can now be viewed on YouTube. I hope you enjoy it!
Last week, I attended the 13. Kieler Open Source und Linux Tage (KieLux) in Kiel, Germany, to give a presentation (in German) about “Flexibles Storage Management unter Linux mit OpenATTIC” . I had an audience of ~25-30 people, a video recording of the session (in 4K!) will be published shortly. I had a great time at […]
Last weekend, I gave a presentation titled “The Evolution of Storage on Linux” at this year’s FrOSCon 10 conference (Happy Anniversary!). In case you have missed it, you can find the slides and video recording below. Thanks to the FrOSCon team for having me, it’s always a pleasure to be there! Unfortunately I had some […]
