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 …

Fedora XII is out

Creo que el titulo se explica a si mismo: (http://get.fedoraproject.org) En otros asuntos, proximamente migrare el software bajo el que corre este sitio (OMFGGG!!!G!G!!!), aun no decido a que, pero... meh. Los mantendre informados

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 …

From the "dear lazy web" collection

I was testing midori, mainly because I wanted a webkit browser to test some pages and midori is a lightweight enough browser to have around. But (there's always a but, right) I found a problem: midori is not able to open any pages on http://localhost... anyone having the same …

Loving fedorahosted

The (https://fedorahosted.org) site was in desperately need of some love. Luckily, I had some spare time and gave it a face-lift :) Here's a sneak peak, but I would like you to go see for yourself, and if anything seems amiss, just drop me a line either here or …

And in other news...

[This happened](https://lists.launchpad.net/launchpad-users/msg05118.html) while no one was looking. Suffice is to say, these are pretty cool news, I've always considered LP.net to be one of the best platforms for FLOSS hosting, way above sf.net and freshmeat. The tight integration between the VCS …

I missed FUDCon :(

Between all the major hoopla going around in my house for the past month or so, I managed (all by myself) to miss the register deadline for [FUDCon Latam](http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FUDConLATAM2009), which is a damn shame, since I wanted to attend. Oh well, maybe I'll attend next …
