In the last week I played a bit with UDD (Ultimate Debian Database). After some experiments I did a script to generate a daily report about source packages in Debian. This report is useful to choose a package that needs help. The daily report has six sections: Sources in Debian Sid (including orphan) Sources in […]
Since GPG 2 was set as default for Debian (Sid, August 2016), an error message appeared inside jails triggered by chroot, when using debuild/debsign commands: clearsign failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device The problem is that GPG 2 uses a dialog window to ask for a passphrase. This dialog window needs a tty (from /dev/pts/ directory). […]
Implementing the hardening When packaging in Debian, is very common to see the lintian messages ‘hardening-no-relro’ and ‘hardening-no-fortify-functions’ in some softwares written in C or C++.

Short URL: http://bit.ly/debian_watch Updates: 2016-10-16: Added a section about ‘fake watches’. Changed all versions from ‘version=3’ to ‘version=4’. 2015-08-25: Added a section about ‘merging uversionmangle and dversionmangle’. Writing a good watch file for a Debian package is simple. However, several maintainers don’t know how to make watches for non trivial sites as Google Pages […]
Lintian is a system that checks the Debian Policy when debhelper is building a package in Debian. Lintian has several verification levels. By default, some are used. However, you can refine it via config file. It’s a common error to use the default setting and submit packages with hidden problems to mentors. To activate all […]
Há alguns dias eu fiz um guia dobrável sobre o tcpdump, que também serve para o WinDump. Ele possui seis páginas e é uma referência para iniciantes e para profissionais. O guia está disponível em http://eriberto.pro.br/files/guia_tcpdump.pdf. Espero que seja útil. s!
Pessoal, Como estou escrevendo o livro de análise de tráfego, tive que compilar kernels mais atuais para fazer algumas experiências. Então, disponibilizei os .deb de tais kernels. São o 3.4.35 e o 3.8.3. Foram compilados para Debian Wheezy (Debian 7) e funcionam perfeitamente. Por favor, quem for usar, leia o README antes, pois há riscos. […]
