Beginning of my new job

I take my new position at Makina-Corpus, in Toulouse, FR, since monday 17 january, as system administrator and integrator.

I met ex-collaegue Estelle Martinez from Aliasource, and hope to work as much as possible with another ex-collaegue Sylvain Garcia from Linagora as we share our offices.

Makina-Corpus is an open source compagny. I join a nice and motivate team, everything is to enjoy my new position.

GThumb photo import, no sources…

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.

Cyrus IMAPd debian maintainer

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 !

Linagora GSO collaboration ending

After 11 years, I left my current position at Linagora GSO, ex Aliasource, on tuesday 14, december 2010.

During my 11 years as an OBM core team developer, architect and project manager, I had to work on great projects, met lot of very interesting people. It was a very rewarding experience, and I want to thanks all people I met during this job.

But recently, some decisions, changes led me to wonder about company values…
I really hope that OBM project will be improved and stay free. I will continu to follow it, and contribute if possible. For now, I’m confused.

Whatever, I begin a “new life”, as free and as rewarding than the first.

NVidia 8600GT R.I.P.

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.

ChezOuam debian mirror

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

More informations there.

Dokuwiki update

It’s never too late. Today, the wiki part of ChezOuam website was updated to the latest version of Dokuwiki.

After a long time of [poor |in]activity, ChezOuam website is ready for heavy use !
