pkgsrc dashboard - progress!, 2009-04-05 00:00:00 #
So this weekend I actually got some code out on pkgsrc-dashboard and I'm pretty happy with it. Well.. almost. :) Obviously, this first commit is just something to try out and see what happens, but basically the server-side of things is starting to take shape. (I'll add a simple client very soon) It has shown some, in my opinion, weaknesses with the tools available and I'm hoping to be able to improve that situation, or at least highlight these weaknesses enough to where they are improved. One obvious example is that NetBSD doesn't include a very featured http client by default. can do http requests, but it lacks the ability to POST, set headers, and other things that would make simple web-based automation a little easier. For now, I've programming pkgsrc-dashboard to handle GET's with parameters, but it would have been easier with curl as a client target. Regardless, I'm happy with the progress I made this weekend.

pkgsrc dashboard - a new project, 2009-03-31 00:00:00 #
So in IRC I brought up the idea of a web dashboard for managing a network of pkgsrc servers and liked it so much I started a google code project for it. http://code.google.com/p/pkgsrc-dashboard/ If you're a pkgsrc/netbsd person and have some input, ideas, or want to join the project then let me know!

blogger and empty atom.xml, 2009-03-28 00:00:00 #
I use blogger.com for this blog and on multiple occasions it has published empty rss.xml and atom.xml files. This is very, very annoying! According to , but as of 2009/03/28, it hasn't!

eeepc "headless" with NetBSD, 2009-03-27 00:00:00 #
Normally I would do a whole How-To on this topic, but it was so easy that it really only qualifies as a blog post. Everything pretty much just works on my eeepc 701 so there isn't a whole lot to document. The main accomplishment was just figuring out how to turn off the screen. I'm mostly using the GENERIC kernel with the following line added: My xorg.conf came from X -configure. I can't remember making any changes to it, but here are some snippets: To turn off the LCD backlight and get a completely dark screen: The only problem is that you must be in X for that to work. I would like to simply leave it on the console, but I couldn't figure out a way to turn off the LCD with using , and I feel like might have some options, but I couldn't find them.
