Since a moment, I was unable to import photos from my camera (Canon Powershot A720 IS) using ghtumb.
When I plug my camera on USB, I’m getting gnome dialog box, asking me to ignore or import photos. If I choose import option, ghtumb start but don’t show anything.
After searching a long, I note that Rhythmbox show my camera as an audio player… In rhythmbox, I uncheck the “Portable player – MTP” plugin and restarted. After that, ghtumb is able to import my photos from my camera again. Seems that there is a conflict between ghtumb import photo and the rhythmbox “Portable player – MTP” plugin.
I’m using Debian SID (gthumb 3:2.11.5-4, libgphoto2-2 2.4.6-3, rhythmbox 0.12.8-2).
[update] Known bug.
I join the official Debian Cyrus IMAPd packaging team.
As I said before, I want a newest Cyrus IMAPd for next stable release as soon as possible. Since I’ve some free time currently, I’m working to fix some packaging mistakes and testing migrations from previous Lenny and Squeeze versions.
My current work is hosted on my GitHub repository. Default branch is a simple fork of official Debian Cyrus IMAPd git repository with my own fixes, used only before sending a pull request or pushing into official reposirtory.
Others branches are advanced tests on new features, strong changes…
All my GitHub work is free, but it’s not the official Debian Cyrus IMAPd repository (it’s there). You can use it and, of course, tell me about issues. But don’t forget: USE AT YOU OWN RISKS !
Since my last Debian upgrade, I was unable to get Xorg starting. After reboot, Xorg freeze, using 100% CPU…
My NVidia configuration was up for 2 years, and all Debian upgrade works well. As an Open technologies fan, my first response was : “Putin de pilotes propriétaires…*”. It seems to me that the only non-free software used was the problem.
Very experimental Lenny and SID Cyrus-imapd-2.4 packages are available from ChezOuam repository.
There is activity about this on Debian Cyrus Team development mailist this month.
As explain, official Debian packages comming soon !
I hope that Debian official real activity will continu, and Cyrus 2.4 be available – at least – in experimental soon (dream about Squeeze1…). If so, my own packages are already deprecated ! If I can help, I will help official team.
Migrating to Debian Squeeze on ChezOuam host done.
Last week-end, after consulting the Debian release-critical status pages and checking that there is no critical bugs with needed main services, I decide to migrate my web server to Squeeze.
This migration need ~5 hours (including download). No real problem were encountered.
I added debian mirror service on ChezOuam network.
You will find on it all sort of packages that I create/modify some of them are very specifics, others are tests/changes that I done on third part software/package.
I put them on this mirror mainly because of :
- don’t install anything without a package on my computers
- development purposes (ie: using to test changes done on third part packages)
- waiting for a better place
