  • xorg-server
    This is the first development snapshot of the Xorg 21.1 release series.
    Being a development snapshot it may contain release-critical issues and
    may potentially change in backwards-incompatible ways until the final
    release candidates.
    Notable changes since 1.20 include:
      - The meson support is now fully mature. While autotools support will still be
      kept for this release, it will be dropped afterwards.
      - Glamor support for Xvfb.
      - Variable refresh rate support in the modesetting driver.
      - Modifier support is enabled on Xorg by default.
      - XInput 2.4 support which adds touchpad gestures.
      A large number of small features and various bug fixes.
    Note that this development snapshot is nominally of whole X, there will most likely be no
    proper release. At least Xorg DDX is likely to go the same path as Xwayland.

  • 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.
