The new baselayout stable in Gentoo – Things to watch out for.

Gentoo has introduced the formerly ~testing baselayout as stable (Version 1.11.12). This introduces quiet a lot of changes to you system, so you will need to watch out for a few things. Especially the network part has changed – And definitly for the better, if you ask me. But your setup will need updating.

/etc/conf.d/net: This is where the most interesting stuff has happened. Check /etc/conf.d/net.example for, erhhh, examples. But if you have been running DHCP on eth0 all you would want in this file is

config_eth0=( “dhcp” )

Having a static adresse it is just something like the following instead:

config_eth0=( “192.168.1.67/24”)
routes_eth0=( “default via 192.168.2.1” )

The greatest news if for those roaming around with wireless access though.

/etc/conf.d/hostname: Replaces /etc/hostname (Witch you should remove).
/etc/conf.d/domainname: Replaces /etc/dnsdomainname (Witch you should remove).

/etc/rc.conf: Stuff has been moved from here to other places. Check /etc/conf.d/clock if you use other than “UTC” as timezone. /etc/conf.d/consolefont and /etc/conf.d/keymaps has the rest.

All howtos moved to the latest setup

Pretty easy, as I just used the rendered HTML from my XML files.

But needles to say, my favorite editor is still going to be doing most of the work. Editing HTML (even with the helping “quicktags” buttons in WP) is not funny in an textarea tadalafil prices.

The old setup is still available at http://subversion.dk/svn/hilli/trunk/hilli.dk/. Check the source out with subversion if you want to have a look at it.

Site changed – yet again

This time we are going in an bit of a different direction.

1st of all this should still be valid XHTML and CSS!

But we are changing the language to (mostly) english, and let others do the dirty work of keeping the code clean.
Instead we are focuing on keeping the content a bit more updated.

Site ændret – igen

Det er stadig ikke vildt synligt (når man ser bort fra at mit site er syneligt igen), men det hele er lavet om til at køre med XML. Der er bakset en DTD, et XSLT, og det hele bliver transformeret vha mod-xslt.

AxKit viste sig at være en kræsen sag mht. perl moduler med mere, så det holdte ikke længe. Men siden AxKit ikke lavede andet end at transformere XML viser mod-xslt sig, at være et smart valg. Bl.a. pga at Apache er blevet opgraderet til version 2.

Windows – Blåt stempel til sikkerheden

Der var måske en del, der læste den artikel i CW, hvor der stod beskrevet at Windows 2000 har fået et blåt stempel for sikkerheden. Jonathan S. Shapiro, Ph.D. fra Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute har forsøgt at forklare hvad det betyder:

“In the case of CAPP, an EAL4 evaluation tells you everything you need to know. It tells you that Microsoft spent millions of dollars producing documentation that shows that Windows 2000 meets an inadequate set of requirements, and that you can have reasonably strong confidence that this is the case.”
