Fortunately, someone builds a 2.6.26-xen-amd64 kernel.
Add this to your sources.list: deb http://kernel-archive.buildserver.net/debian-kernel/waldi/xen-extra/ all main
Install these packages:
Fix the “new Xen console” problem (xen now uses hvc0 for its console):
If you use pygrub, in grub.conf on the domU add these kernel parameters : console=hvc0 xencons=tty title Debian 2.6.26
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64 ro root=/dev/sda1 console=hvc0 xencons=tty
If you don’t use pygrub, specify extra = “console=hvc0 xencons=tty” in your virtual machine xen config file.
Use at your own risk 😉
By the way, this fixed a nasty bug for me: php5-cli used to segfault a lot when using linux-image-2.6.18-6-xen-amd64 under Lenny. It’s stable now.
Edit: linux-image-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64 is now available in unstable 🙂
Someone told me I had to make a sitemap for this blog…
This plugins does that all right: Google XML Sitemaps.
Easy to install and use. Extremely configurable. Will automatically update the sitemap when you add or modify something, and notify sitemap-aware search engines (Google, MSN, Ask.com and Yahoo are supported).
Well, now that I just had my first non-spam comment, I have to start improving my search engine referencing, right ? 😉
I noticed that I had no description meta tag, and that google just used the beginning of the last post for a description. This is not right (and not sexy). The problem is the same for every single page (home, tags, categories, archives, single posts, etc.).
Wait, did I say ? Tags, categories and archives ? Search engines index all of these pages ? So every post must be indexed at least 3 times. Doesn’t looks good either, does it ?
I just installed a new plugin that promises to adress all of these problems : all-in-one-seo-pack. At once. Really cool. Optimizes titles, generates META tags automatically, avoids duplicate content, very configurable (but still easy to install: you don’t have to fine-tune everthing, just enter a title and a description. The default config is OK in most cases).
Does most of what Hardware Monitor, Temperature Monitor, MenuMeters and MenuCalendarClock iCal do, but in just one app : mini calendar, memory, disk, network and cpu usage, fan speed and power consumption, tempratures and much more!
Easy to install and configure, excellent design, like always from islayer.
And yes, I configured it to look like MenuMeters…
When logged-in with the sh shell, with bash completion installed (on lenny), you’ll get something like this whenever you try to use completion: cd -sh: < ( compgen -d -- '' ): No such file or directory
Solution: use bash ;-) or wait for (or submit) a fix.
