That looks surprisingly native. What languages does it support?

Subject: Pi server, take two

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I finally took some time this weekend to work the bugs out of the Raspberry Pi based server that I am running in my house.  I didn't want to put it back into any serious use until I got it working reliably.

I had gone through all sorts of grief trying to get two hard disks working at the same time.  This shouldn't be a big deal.  I had a hunch, which later proved to be incorrect, that the CheapChinese(tm) USB-to-SATA adapters had a bug somewhere that made them malfunction when you connected two of them.  I eventually bought a dual-channel USB-to-SATA adapter but still had problems.  For a while I was using one channel of the dual-channel adapter, and one of the single-channel adapters.  I also had everything running through a powered hub, thinking that even the light power load from the electronics (keyboard etc) might be fux0ring the Pi.

Fast forward to the facepalm moment.  It turns out that my problem the whole time has been that the CheapChinese(tm) power supplies that came with the original USB-to-SATA adapters aren't beefy enough to reliably power one disk, let alone two.  Eventually I swapped in the power supply that came with the dual-channel adapter.  Despite the fact that they all are marked "2000 mA," this one actually had enough power to run the disks.  It's now reliably booting, every time, without requiring me to poke it with a stick during boot to get all volumes mounted.

I have a 2 GB MicroSD card in the Pi so I'm only using it for booting.  The root filesystem is on one hard disk, and the other is for offsite backups of my hosted servers.  Now that I've got it working reliably, I might think about putting it all in a nice box with a bunch of LED's wired to the GPIO pins.  Here's a photo of the current setup.

as you may already have seen the rumors on xmodulo in the rss room, here is the official statement:

The Ian in debIan is no more :-(

Strange indeed.  Not sure what was going on based on those tweets.

I'm not familiar with the guy but it sounded to me like he got a few too many beers in and his neighbor called the police on him. He got into an altercation with the police that resulted in him being arrested, possibly twice. At some point during this he decided he had made enough of a mess of his life that the most useful thing he could do was to become a martyr for police brutality awareness.

Like I said, I'm not familiar with him other than knowing who he is because of his work on Debian, but I have known a few highly intellectual people who because of the circumstances of their upbringing never really had a situation in their lives where they were subject to forced compliance to authority. I'm not sure if that applies to Murdock but I can certinaly see how the situation may have quickly escalated if it did.

I also would suspect he may have been troubled in other ways before this all began.

I haven't seen his name pop up in the news over the past few days so I think the self-martyring may have been in vain, as well.

Quite a shame. :-/

I think Richard Stallman killed him after he refused to rename the distribution to "Debian GNU/GNU/GNU/Linux."

RMS would probably insist on the GNU first in line.  That aside, I wonder if I am raising kids that would have the same issues.  Off to another room for a good discussion I think.

Well if he got attacked by cops then I'm starting an "Open Source Developer Lives Matter" movement. (But really it's just a trick to get George Soros to go I can buy a new computer.)

I totally agree.  I still find myself running /etc/init.d/<somecommand> :)

Are there any distros that are still holding back from systemd other than Slackware?

At this point there's no *practical* way to get around systemd without taking yourself way out of mainstream Linux support. Might as well just get used to it.

It'll require the installation of .Net 4.6.3 and the ability to run .dll files.
