  • Entire Rebuild of Tumbleweed Brings Enormous Update

    The most recent 20210317 snapshot updated more than a half dozen packages, which included the data plotting package kplotting as the lone KDE Frameworks 5.80.0 package to update in the snapshot. A memory leak fix was made in the update of flatpak 1.10.2 and a security update in the package fixed a potential attack where a flatpak application could use custom formatted .desktop files to gain access to files on the host system. An update of systemd 246.11 fixed a void pointer arithmetic warning and moved Secure Boot logic to a new file. Other updates in the snapshot included spacenavd 0.8, python-packaging 20.9, python-scipy 1.6.1 and rtkit 0.13.

    Snapshot 20210316 delivered most of the 5.80.0 Frameworks packages. Kirigami, which offers application framework components for mobile, had multiple improvements and fixes; it changed and improved the PlaceholderMessage for new Application Programming Interfaces. The Plasma Framework package ported a Plasma Style Kirigami Theme plugin to the new Kirigami API. A Flatpak manifest was also added to the Kirigami template. The snapshot brought an update of ImageMagick, which decodes HEIC images in sRGB instead of YCbCr. Mozilla Firefox 86.0.1 fixed a frequent Linux crash on the browser launch. The 5.11.6 Linux Kernel was updated in the snapshot, which had some Btrfs fixes. The kernel also enabled the headset microphone of the Acer Swift line. There was a fix for the maximum length of a password entered through a terminal with cryptsetup 2.3.5. Various fixes were made in the update of xfsprogs 5.11.0 and the Open Chinese Convert library opencc 1.1.2 added a Hong Kong Traditional Chinese conversion. A major version update of Python-hyperlink to 21.0.0 was included in the snapshot and bumped some long overdue dependencies. Other packages to update in the snapshot were gnutls 3.7.1, vim 8.2.2607 and sqlite3 3.35.0, which enhanced the .stats command to accept new arguments stmt and vmstep and causes the prepare statement statistics and only the virtual-machine step count to be shown, respectively.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2021/11

    The biggest trouble of the week was the mirror infrastructure having a hard time catching up to the full rebuild. Tumbleweed itself was, as usual, solid and has been steadily rolling. In total, there were 4 snapshots (0312, 0315, 0316, and 0317) released last week.

  • OpenSUSE Tumbleweed's Very Busy Week With An Entire Rebuild, Latest KDE Packages

    For users of the rolling-release openSUSE Tumbleweed distribution, it's been a very active past week.

    First up was an entire rebuild of the distribution, which seldom occurs among distributions especially rolling-release distributions where it can then mean multi-gigabyte updates. This latest openSUSE Tumbleweed rebuild of all packages is as a result of picking up the latest GNU C Library (glibc) patches.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
