Tengo aproximadamente 4 años sin escribir ni un solo artículo en este blog. En el último mes me he dedicado a resucitar este sitio y consolidar todos mis servicios para hacer más fácil el mantenimiento. La última vez que escribí algo aquí ya había cambiado el motor del blog a …

Cannot remove $SOME_MOCK_CHROOT/var/lib/machines?

UPDATE So it turns out these files were part of an existing BTRFS subvolume, that's why I couldn't delete them. I rarely (if ever) mess with subvolumes so I am not entirely sure how these came to be, but there you go. I was doing some packager work and tried …

Vagrant + libvirt + multiple VMs

So I finally bit the bullet and decided to play with vagrant. But, since I utterly hate having to mess with virtualbox or (worse) vmware, I decided I'd take a shot at using vagrant with the tried and true kvm/qemu setup. First of all, this is a collection of …

uWSGI 2.0.7 (and where are the SELinux packager guidelines?)

Yes I've been... slacking. A lot. I am so very sorry. However I finally sat down and re-did most of the spec file for uwsgi and the result is that I pushed it to updates [1], which I hope will come (at the very least) as a first-day upgrade after …

On being 32

So, back when I was young and carefree (that has to be around the high school years probably) I, for whatever reason, got the strong feeling that I would die at 28. Don't ask me how, and don't ask me why, I am no psychiatrist but there's probably some name …

Cambio de... pues de todo

Pues he cambiado de empleo (afortunadamente), no voy a decir mucho de la anterior compañía donde estaba trabajando, solamente que mi salida fue por motivos personales (de salud mas que nada), y la verdad es que muchas ganas de regresar no me quedaron. Durante todo el tiempo que estuve ahi …

Fedora, NetworkManager, hostname, DHCP

So after my last post I went on and started testing different configs to pinpoint where exactly the problem was. I didn't want to do that because I'm a lazy guy, but incredibly enough, google gave only vague results concerning my predicament. The Problem ... or more like "annoyance" in this …

Whatever happened to the hostname?

Dear lazy web: I have two machines working right now, one with fedora, the other with ubuntu live cd. Both machines connect wirelessly to my main router, but only the ubuntu machine displays its hostname in the router client table (in this case "ubuntu"), while the fedora machine is identified …
