My OS X-friendly Docker LAMP, MySQL, and Apache-PHP images now support Vagrant-based boot2docker boxes

M

As of today, my three Docker images osx-docker-lamp, osx-docker-mysql, and osx-docker-apache-php support boot2docker run through Vagrant. In short, when running boot2docker through Vagrant, you should add the following three environment variables VAGRANT_OSX_MODE="true" for enabling Vagrant-compatibility DOCKER_USER_ID=$(id -u) for letting Vagrant use your host user ID for mounted folders...

Announcing osx-docker-lamp

A

I am glad to announce osx-docker-lamp, an out-of-the-box LAMP+phpMyAdmin Docker image that *just works* on Mac OS X (and on other operating systems, as well). osx-docker-lamp, which is published as dgraziotin/lamp in the Docker Hub, is an open source Docker image, which makes sure that Apache and MySQL have proper write support, also when mounting volumes on OS X (for example, when sharing the...

Mbpfan v1.5.0 is out. Supports true multicore CPUs

M

Mbpfan v1.5.0 is out! This release adds compatibility with 3.5-3.6 kernels and true multicore CPUs. That is, all Intel based Macbooks should be supported. I am using mbpfan on my Macbook Pro 6,2 on Ubuntu 12.10 successfully. This time, I could find the very kind collaboration of two Archlinux users, to make the necessary changes to mbpfan. This means that mbpfan has been successfully tested on...

Announcing mbpfan v1.4.1

A

I’ve finally found the time to fix some annoying issues in mbpfan. I have just released mbpfan version 1.4.1, which is a maintenance release. I strongly recommend our testers to upgrade. This release fixes a strange fork bomb-like behavior when starting mbpfan using upstart. Also, the daemon now checks whether the required modules coretemp and applesmc are loaded or not. It also checks for...

mbpfan v1.4.0 is out

m

It is a pleasure for me to announce the immediate availability of mbpfan version 1.4.0. The project attempt is to write a simple, lightweight, yet highly efficient program to adjust the CPU and the other fans of Macbook and Macbook Pro laptops running GNU/Linux. This project could not accept its destiny to be a insignificant, C refresh task. Instead, mbpfan rapidly captivated the attention of the...

Announcing mbpfan v1.3.0

A

It is a pleasure for me to announce the availability of mbpfan (Fan-Control-Daemon) v1.3.0. This version follows the initial public release. Version 1.3.0 adds many enhancements. Among them, it now runs as an Ubuntu/Debian daemon. Additionally, CeRiAl added support for Fedora/RedHat systems. Mbpfan also correctly uses manual control of the fans and provides unittests. Check it out at the new...

Configure the keyboard for your Macbook and Ubuntu 12.04 (and 12.10)

C

I love the new Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin. Unity – and the graphics drivers – have finally reached a stability that satisfies me and let me keep GNU/Linux as solo operating systems on my Macbook Pro 6,2. What drives me crazy is the default keyboard mapping, surely not thought for who owns an Apple computer. First, the Unity Launcher (a.k.a. Dash) default shortcut is the Super key...
