1. ELC 2012

    Hey, this is my feedback of ELC 2012. If you didn’t read the first part, about ABS 2012, you can read the previous post first.

    ELC is one of my favorite conferences as I can meet several talented people and have good talks about Linux in embedded devices. This time was not an exception and I enjoyed very much. The main reason I was there was because I was going to present kmod, the new tool to manage kernel modules. But that would be only on the last day of the conference. Let’s start from the beginning.

    To …

  2. Android Builders Summit 2012

    Four weeks ago, from Februart 13rd to Februrary 17th I was at Android Builders Summit and Embedded Linux Conference in San Francisco. I was a bit busy these last weeks so I didn’t have an opportunity to write here about the conferences as I usually do. I was going to do a post about both the conferences, but after writing a little bit I realized it would be very big. So I split in 2 and here is the one for ABS 2012; the other is coming soon.

    This was my first time at Android Builders Summit. Since in …

  3. ANNOUNCE: codespell 1.4

    codespell 1.4 is out! Nothing really new, just a maintenance release: 1 bug fix and some new entries to the dictionary. See the entire announcement on its mailing list.

    As per patches I’m receiving it seems that codespell is being successfully used by opensource projects. I’m glad codespell can help those projects, particularly people who don’t have English as their mother tongue as I don’t. It’s also an opportunity to people starting on a project, as I said in last LinuxCon Brazil.

    I’m not submitting patches anymore to Linux kernel myself using codespell …

  4. ANNOUNCE: kmod 3

    Hey, kmod 3 is out. Really nice to finish this release. I was hoping to have it between the holidays, but there were some major bugs pending. It’s nice to see udev from git already using it instead of calling modprobe for each module. Kay reported a hundred less forks on bootup after start using libkmod and libblkid.

    It’s nice too receive feedback about other architectures that we don’t have access, too. With kmod 3, sh4 joined the other architectures that were tested with kmod.

    Since I’m already doing the announcements to the mailing lists, I …

  5. ANNOUNCE: kmod 2

    I’m glad to announce the second version of kmod.  I’m sorry for not sending the first version to the mailing lists. Now I’m both writing it here and sending to the mailing list.

    I thank very much the feedback received for the first version and that now Jon Masters, the maintainer of module-init-tools, is helping us with kmod and already announced that kmod will replace module-init-tools in future.

    I’d like to especially thank Tom Gundersen, Dave Reisner, Marco d’Itri, Jon Masters, Luis Strano, Jan Engelhardt and Kay Sievers who have been extensively testing kmod and …

  6. Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow

    So, in last post I said kmod 2 could be released sooner than expected if there were major bugs. Not as much as a surprise, there was 1: depending on the alias passed to the lookup function we were blocked iterating a list.

    It’s now fixed in git tree. Thanks to Ulisses Furquim for fixing it and Dave Reisner for the bug report. We already have some other great stuff implemented so we’ll soon have another release.

    Another great news is that now we have the maintainer of module-init-tools (Jon Masters) cooperating with us. We will discuss how …
