Second Gentoo BugDay a success
------------------------------
  
Another smashing success, participants in this weeks BugDay, held on 
September 6, bravely squashed a total of 124 bugs. Only in its second 
month, BugDay atrracted a total of 171 unique bug hunters, with a record 
of 149 simultaneous attendees in #gentoo-bugs, surpassing last months 
inaugeral BugDay by a large margin (130 bug quashers participated last 
month). Among the crowd were many people eager to lend their expertise and 
learn from others. Users got to interact with Gentoo developers in a 
unique way, and some new potential developers were spotted. We'd like to 
thank everyone who came out and made this months BugDay a huge success, 
and we hope to see you next month: Same bug time, same bug channel!

4. Featured Developer of the Week
=================================
  
Thomas Pedley
 
Figure 4.1: Thomas Pedley
http://www.gentoo.org/images/gwn/20030908_shallax.jpg
 
This week's featured dev is Thomas Pedley[11] (shallax), who is singularly 
responsible for the most ironic of Gentoo ports: Gentoox[12] (Gentoo for 
the XBox). Thomas is the only official developer for the project, but he 
claims this reduces the number of developer conflicts. His 
responsibilities run the gamut through kernel hacking, user support, 
distro maintenance, building binary packages, dealing with legal issues, 
and maintaining the gentoox web site. Appropriately, 
gentoox.shallax.com[13] and forums.shallax.com[14] were recently moved to 
an XBox host.

Thomas' work came to the attention of the Gentoo community with his 
post[15] to the forums in March. Although other people had managed to get 
Gentoo up and running on a modded XBox, Thomas was the first to put 
together a formal distribution and documentation - which has greatly 
facilitated the growth of Gentoo on the heavily subsidized Microsoft 
gaming platform. The idea of using the XBox as a cheap multimedia PC has 
been enthralling Linux fans for months. Our subject's proudest 
accomplishment came with the succesful hacking of the XBox's Cromwell bios 
to permit loading of a larger initrd file, and the subsequent cleaning up 
of the boot process in Gentoox. Thomas now runs two XBoxen: the 
continuously up web server and another that is, tragically, periodically 
taken down to play games with.

 15. http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=44518
 
In addition to the XBoxen, Thomas runs a 1.8 GHz P4 desktop, and a 533 MHz 
Celeron server. He likes KDE, but uses the lower footprint WindowMaker 
when on an XBox. He is a bit of a messaging addict, launching Gaim and 
XChat when he first boots (or Trillian and mIRC if booting into the other 
OS). He first heard of Gentoo back in 2001, but was daunted by its 
learning curve until 2002 and completed the transition to Gentoo for his 
servers this year. His favorite applications are gcc and emerge, and 
prefers pico/nano as an editor. He does a lot of his development work 
using bash scripting, and chose to implement the Gentoox patch system 
(which works alongside portage for XBox implementations) in bash.
 
Thomas recently completed 6th Form at the Simon Balle school, and will 
start Computer Science studies at the University of Hertfordshire in a few 
weeks. He also works at a local supermarket in order to generate the funds 
he needs for acquiring XBoxen and maintaining his beloved Peugot 205. He 
lives in Hertfordshire, England, just outside London.
 
When asked for a favourite quote, Thomas offered a Beastie Boy lyric: 
"DIY, that means do it yourself - I don't sit around waiting for someone's 
help, I don't sit back and say good enough, I keep on striving, 
reinventing.", which seems quite appropriate. He also observed that 
"Gentoo is the most solid distribution I have had the pleasure of using, 
and the user base is friendly and willing to help each other out." He also 
wanted to take an opportunity to thank all those who have helped out with 
the Gentoox project - interested readers are directed to the Gentoox 
README to hear about their contributions.

Gentoo on the Pegasos PPC
 
Being one of the rare Gentoo devs with a Pegasos G3/600 MHz at home, 
dholm[16] has succesfully Gentooified that particular non-Macintosh, yet 
PowerPC-based platform. The next LiveCD will contain an official build, 
but dholm's kernel is ready for testing by anyone who'd like to try their 
hands. In the same thread, PPC-lead-developer pvdabeel[17] has announced 
that Gentoo will run on the AmigaOne, too.

Making an Effort
 
Besides browsing the overview of individual forums, people tend to look 
for topics via the "posts since last visit" link or input text strings in 
the quick search field related to whatever problem they have. One of the 
less popular features of the phpBB forum interface is a link located to 
the top right of the page that simply says: "View unanswered posts". At 
currently almost 10,000 of those, among a lot of garbage there's a much 
larger amount of newbie questions that went unanswered, sometimes because 
the title wasn't too clear, the problem too obscure, or maybe not very 
interesting to the regulars on board. Gentoomen, have you helped a newbie 
today?

$100 UPSes for Linux 
 
For those of us that absolutely NEED to run Gentoo--electric service or 
not--an uninterruptable power supply could be just what you're looking 
for. Gentoo user Chip Marshall started the $100 Linux UPS Challenge to see 
if anyone knew of Linux-compatible UPSes that could be bought for roughly 
$100.  Read on [20] for all the great suggestions.

Gentoo Games.
 
Who said there weren't any games on linux? Well we definately prove them 
wrong here at Gentoo, with the number of games packages in app-games now 
outnumbering those in dev-perl! Break them up a little you say? Well 
you're too late! Mike Frysinger is a step[22] ahead of you! Have a look to 
see where the discussion went.

Portage is your friend.
 
Although some of us are more than happy to just type in emerge myprogram, 
some people actually like to know how these things work. Grant Goodyear is 
one such person, who decided that a little walkthrough would be 
appropriate. Have a look here[23].

Japan: Gentoo Navi Log
 
Mamoru Komachi, better known as Usata[24], a Gentoo dev at large and 
maintainer of the pTeX package, has started a weblog that keeps track of 
new ebuilds and contains news and tidbits centered around the needs of 
Japanese Gentooists. Some of the more interesting recent developments 
already feature prominently on his page, including Botond Botyanszki's new 
Japanese input method im-ja or the new GTK2 variant of Sylpheed, for 
example. Best of all: the blog is open to audience participation, everyone 
willing to commit one or the other concise newsbit about Gentoo is welcome 
to add to the logbook. Check Usata's page[25] - only if your Japanese is 
up to the task, of course...

9. Tips and Tricks
==================
  
Using SSH for remote commands
 
This week's tip shows a less common use of SSH. Most people use SSH to 
login to servers or boxes remotely. However, you can also use SSH to issue 
commands on remote servers without opening a full login shell. 
 
Note:  To use SSH without having to enter a password all the time, use 
Keychain. 
 
To issue commands through SSH, simply type the command after the normal 
SSH login information (e.g. ssh user@host command). The following example 
shows you how to view log files on a remote web server. 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Code Listing 9.1:                                                       |
| Viewing an Apache2 access_log                                           |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                                                                         |
|% ssh david@... tail /var/log/apache2/access_log             |
|                                                                         |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Alternatively, you could change passwords over SSH (although using public 
key authentication with SSH is recommended over passwords). 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Code Listing 9.2:                                                       |
| Remotely changing a password                                            |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                                                                         |
|% ssh david@... passwd                                           |
|(current) UNIX password: password                                        |
|New UNIX password: new_password                                          |
|Retype new UNIX password: new_password                                   |
|Changing password for david                                              |
|                                                                         |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
This should get you started with remote command execution. See the SSH man 
pages for more options.
