Today as it was raining and I couldn’t do much gardening, psmisc version 22.21 was released. The files are located up on sourceforge at https://sourceforge.net/projects/psmisc/files/latest/download or at your favorite distro repository soon. Once again, thanks to all patch submitters, bug reports and translators for all their help in getting this out. Apologies to the translation teams for having two alpha versions. So what does psmisc 22.21 bring you? Amongst a lot of minor bug fixes it has: If you started a process and then spawned some threads and then decided to change the names of the threads, pstree would show the “old” name, it now shows the correct new name pstree has a new flag (-N) for namespace support, thanks Aristeu for the patches Previously fuser -M flag only worked if it was before -m, now it can be either
I’m not sure if it is just a bad motherboard, cable, USB device or just bad luck, but when I reboot the computer the UPS doesn’t appear. It’s not even seen in lsusb and of course that makes nut-server fail which makes nut-client complain that it cannot work out the UPS status.The solution was to unplug and plug the cable in then reset nut-server and all was good. But playing with cables seems so last century, surely there was a better way? Some Googling showed up a way to Reset USB without a reboot but the directories the entry mentioned didn’t exist on my computer; though there was something very close to it. Perhaps that would work? A few tweaks later and I had a working UPS monitoring cable! The changed script is below: I’m not sure if it is
Someone has decided to use my email address for a spam source. They have even used google to relay it which, given Googles current policies seems like a winning idea. I keep getting emails from Google’s servers with header lines like …
JFFNMS version 0.9.4 was released today, this version fixes some bugs that have recently appeared in previous versions. The triggers rules editor had a problem where some of the rules clicked off the triggers would not appear or could not be edited correctly. Most of the Admin screens have the ability to sort the rows. This, unfortunately, didn’t sort but the functionality has been restored. Most users are probably unaware of this, but the database schema is first created for MySQL and is then converted for PostgreSQL. The conversi0n process is far from ideal and hasn’t worked until this release. More testing is required for PostgreSQL support but it should be a lot better.
Well if you can read this then you know it’s working. After way too many weeks, Debian will have WordPress version 3.8. Thanks to Raphaël for his kind assistance and answering my questions about how it was built. The upload is still gurgling along and will make it there in its own time. He said Handing over packages is hard, I’d agree but say taking over them is too. So, what does WordPress 3.8 look like? From the “frontend” I didn’t really notice much. The big changes, at least cosmetically, seem to be for the admin backend. It just look slicker and cleaner. Hopefully Debian users find the update useful and I’ve not broken anything. There’s always the BTS if there is. I’ve deliberately tried to minimise the changes for this version to limit the breakage.
