Advice to newcomers and veterans of the Free and Open Source software communities

François Marier

A few months ago, a collection of essays called Open Advice was released. It consists of the things that seasoned Free and Open Source developers wish they had known when they got started.

The LWN book review is the best way to get a good feel for what it's about, but here are the notes I took while reading it:

Not all ‘buntus are Born Equal

Yuval Levy

Precise Pangolin, or 12.04 is a long term support (LTS) release. One might think that particular care has been put into it. 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) has served me well during my first year in law school, but I thought that going on an LTS version will serve me better for the next two. Wrong.

Bug 1010724: Why doesn't dnsmasq listen on both IPv4 and IPv6?

Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre

Dnsmasq currently only listens on; that's done on purpose. If the only nameserver you have is, both IPv4 and IPv6 queries will go through it. It doesn't listen on an IPv6 address. We'll likely change the actual address to '' as soon as this is possible with dnsmasq, there are changes coming up upstream that should support this.br /br /Letting dnsmasq listen on IPv6 is definitely something I wouldn't mind to see working; but it's unfortunately not as simple as adding '--listen-address=::1' to the parameters passed to dnsmasq by NetworkManager.

Ajouter de la swap à la volée

Sylvain Lévesque

Comment ajouter 10 go de swap à la volée sans refaire ses partitions ni même redémarrer ? Et bien voilà !

sudo fallocate -l 10g /mnt/10GB.swap
sudo chmod 600 /mnt/10GB.swap
sudo mkswap /mnt/10GB.swap
sudo swapon /mnt/10GB.swap

Évidemment ce changement n’est pas permanent et il vous faut de la place sur votre disque dur afin de pouvoir héberger le 10 go en question. Comment le rendre permanent ?

Ajouter cette ligne à la toute fin de votre fichier /etc/fstab et redémarrez.
