  • David Cantrell: rpminspect-1.7 released

    rpminspect 1.7 is now available. This release includes a lot of fine tuning and bug fixing as more projects and workflows adopt rpminspect.

    The main feature present in the 1.7 release is the unicode inspection. This inspection has been added in response to the Trojan Source vulnerabilities that were recently disclosed to the public. The inspection checks text files in source RPMs as well as extract source archives for any files containing forbidden Unicode code points. The forbidden code points have to be defined in the rpminspect configuration file. See the data/generic.yaml file for an example configuration block for the unicode inspection. The code points defined there are the bidirectional code points the Trojan Source vulnerability discusses.

  • IT careers: 5 steps to get hired before the holidays [Ed: IBM says, create an account with Microsoft to get a job. Red Hat under IBM is not what it once was...]

    One of the biggest misconceptions about job searching is that hiring stops during the holiday period. Job seekers often wait until the beginning of the year to restart their job application process, but there’s no need to take a break.

    Organizations are looking to fill open spots before they close the budget for the end of the year. Many are desperately looking for candidates. By strategically applying for opportunities during the holiday period, you can increase your chances of landing a job even before the start of the next year.

  • Video: The right features make technology more adaptable & adoptable, says Red Hat’s Phil Andrews [Ed: Mostly fluff, maybe Red Hat paid for it too (IBM)]

  • Linux and Cloud Native Security: Red Hat’s Perspective [Ed: Red Hat is buying puff pieces (see disclosure at the bottom), just like Microsoft does]

    The Linux Foundation and Red Hat are sponsors of The New Stack.

  • 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.
