Mageia 8 is out

2021/02/27

As announced on the project site, Mageia 8 is now out ! It’s great to see the community succeeding in another joint work to publish that one.

Now, I have to update my servers, my laptops, my workstations in order to benefit from it. Won’t happen tomorrow however, as each time I need to check for major release updates and potential migration aspects before doing so. Using it for all what I do from apache, freedb, squid, shorewall to gnucash, tellico, digikam, and of course the usual firefox, thunderbird/mutt, libreoffice, that’s quite some software to test. Not counting the one I need to use on top of it such as teams, hpemyroom, zoom, openconnect with a Yubikey for my work.

Will start to look at shorewall first and fix my ansible playbooks to deploy the conf once the machine has been updated. Some fun ahead 😉

Congrats to all of you who contributed to that release (myself included in fact !!)

Our Linux.conf.au video is now available

2021/02/03

It was great to be able to speak during Linux.conf.au again this year, even if being down under would have been even greater 🙂

The video of this great conf (!) has now been published so if you have missed us (Frédéric Passeron and myself) speaking about the Wokshops on demand live, you now can view it online. Enjoy !
