Debian packaging is much more than just adding dependencies. It could be quite complex and challenging to learn but I guarantee that it will be very beneficail.
In this example, I would like to use dh_make to create blank Debian packaging templates. This contains basic template to use pre/post scripts, configuration which is very easy to start. However, this template assumes that you have source to build for the package but the example assumes that there is no source. Continue reading →
I got this great machine (Dell XPS 600) in 2005 and have been very happy with it except VT option in BIOS. I have had it turned on all the time since it was running a VM for serving some web content. However, a few weeks ago, I heard a small explosion from the inside of the computer and a little bit of smell. And then it would not boot indicating some POST error from BIOS.
I opened up the case and it was very obviously that its motherboard was burned. It has been constantly used since it ran as a server and stuff; however, it was never heavily used – I do not play games and did not overclock it (they kind of go together I guess). I guess it may be affected by Capacitor Plague
I had used Blackberry 8830 World Edition for a couple of years and it had served me very well in terms of emails and voice calls; however, it was quite difficult to say it was a smartphone since the basic functionality, accessing web, was even often very limited and slow. At the beginning of this year, I was lucky enough to get Motorola Droid from Verizon as a replacement phone and it opened up a whole new lifestyle for me and I have been in love with my Droid now.
Droid almost replaced my laptop and the following is a list of apps that I use the most. You can download these apps from the Market.

I have been in love with Ubuntu Desktop for its polished user friendlyness and it motivated me to take a look at its server edition. I googled a bit about what kind of reviews Ubuntu Server gets nowadays but other than Ubuntu’s breif survey there are only debates about whether Debian is better or Ubuntu is better. I personally do not think there is an absolute answer for this debate because they both have its strengths and weaknesses. Anyhow I thought it would be interesting to try Ubuntu Server myself.
