69 TeTex deprecated
70 ----------------
71
72 The TeX distribution teTeX has been obsoleted as the author has no time to
73 maintain it anymore. However, there is a complete distribution on top of it,
74 that is now the successor: TeXLive. Many Linux distributions have already
75 adopted it as their standard, and it's now the TeX flavor of choice for
76 Gentoo, as well.
77
78 You are encouraged to emerge --unmerge tetex and then emerge world to get to
79 an up-to-date system with a modern TeX version. Please read the TeXLive
80 migration guide[2] for more detailed instructions.
81

84 Gentoo's TeX maintainers have also created a poll[3] in the forums on which
85 TeX distribution you're using. Please vote, and let them know!

91
92 As you've probably read by now, there are some planned changes[4] in Gentoo's
93 release strategy. We're looking to do automated weekly builds of the stages
94 and minimal CDs, with a possible once-a-year or so update to the networkless
95 media (Installer LiveCDs/DVDs and Universal/Package CDs). Please read the
96 announcement for more details; there's a lot of work involved to get the
97 process going, and we need the help!

110 Council Meeting Summary

112
113 The Gentoo Council[7] held its monthly meeting on September 11, 2008. The
114 items put up for discussion were:
115
116 7. http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/council/
117
118 * Filling the empty slot: as council member Diego Pettenò[8] retired
119 from the council for medical reasons, Doug Goldstein[9] has replaced him.
120 cardoe was the next person from the original voting rankings.
121 * PMS as a draft standard of EAPI 0: the council voted on whether to
122 approve PMS[10] as a draft standard of EAPI 0. Result: approved, with
123 acceptance conditional upon resolution of the requirements[11] outlined
124 by the council.

130
131 The Council met again on September 25, 2008. The items put up for discussion
132 were:
133
134 * EAPI-2: the new EAPI[12] is approved. This brings features such as
135 USE dependencies to Portage; for example, a package can now directly
136 depend on a package built with USE="foo" without resorting to trickery or
137 "built_with_use || die" hacks.
138 * PROPERTIES in cache: Since using PROPERTIES in the cache is related
139 to the EAPI, this issue should be settled among package manager
140 developers, and only present it to the council if they cannot agree on a
141 solution. The PM developers agreed on adding PROPERTIES to the cache as a
142 value that the package managers can ignore.
143 * PROPERTIES=interactive in ebuilds: This is a retroactive,
144 backwards-compatible EAPI change that council approved. It allows ebuilds
145 to set a variable stating up-front that they require user interaction,
146 such as agreeing to a license or inputting information.

171 Gentoo-Quebec training
172 ----------------------
173
174 The Gentoo-Quebec group has offered its first training session about the
175 Gentoo distribution on Saturday 13th, 2008. First of a series of 18, this
176 course enabled 23 participants to familiarize themselves with the Gentoo
177 LiveCD and to briefly learn about the command line utilities involved when
178 installing Gentoo.
179
180 This training session was made possible thanks to the Gentoo-Quebec team as
181 well as Copernic[15], which provided a training room and the network
182 installation for all participants. For more information, please consult the

246 4. Tips and Tricks
247 ==================
248
249 Running commands on many machines
250 ---------------------------------
251
252 If you have been logging into your horde of Gentoo boxes one by one in order
253 to run a command or two, this tip should help you save a lot of time. We
254 provide a glimpse into some of the methods you can use to run commands on
255 multiple machines both sequentially and in parellel.
256
257 The first method is the most primitive. It uses pure bash. Let's say we have
258 ten machines with the hostnames gentoo-box-1, gentoo-box-2, and so on. We
259 want to run emerge --info on each machine at the same time. Here is what we
260 do:
261
262 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
263 | Code Listing 4.1 |
264 | Running emerge on multiple machines |
265 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
266 | $ for i in `seq 10`; do ssh gentoo-box-$i "emerge --info"; done |
267 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
268
269 Warning: Do not try run interactive commands in parallel with this "for"
270 loop. This includes running it without public key encryption. The machines
271 will prompt you for passwords, but you will be unable to input your
272 passwords.
273
274 If you don't have public key encryption setup for ssh, you should read the
275 OpenSSH Key Management[34] series of articles. You may also want to consult
276 this guide[35].
277
278 34. http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/articles/openssh-key-management-p1.xml
279 35. http://sial.org/howto/openssh/publickey-auth/
280
281 If you don't want to hassle with public key encryption, writing complicated
282 "for" loops in bash, and want to run interactive commands, there is a good
283 option for you: Cluster SSH. Let's install it:
284
285 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
286 | Code Listing 4.2 |
287 | Installing Cluster SSH |
288 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
289 | # emerge clusterssh |
290 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
291
292 Cluster SSH requires X11 in order to work. Cluster SSH works by opening an
293 xterm window for every machine in the list you provide. It also opens a small
294 command window where you can type text that gets relayed to other machines'
295 command lines at the same time. To do the same thing we did before with the
296 ten Gentoo boxes, we do the following Cluster SSH:
297
298 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
299 | Code Listing 4.3 |
300 | Starting Cluster SSH |
301 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
302 | $ cssh gentoo-box-{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} |
303 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
304
305 First, you will see the machines ask for passwords unless you have public key
306 encryption set up for them. If one of your machines has a different password,
307 no worries, you can just click on the window of the machine and type it
308 there. Once you see yourself logged into all of the machines, you can type
309 commands to all of them at once or individually.
310
311 Another alternative is to use Tentakel. Tentakel is used in a more static
312 way. Users modify a static configuration file, and then tell Tentakel which
313 group of hosts it should connect to. First, we need to install Tentakel:
314
315 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
316 | Code Listing 4.4 |
317 | Installing Tentakel |
318 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
319 | # emerge tentakel |
320 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
321
322 Next, we create a configuration file:
323
324 +--------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
325 | Code Listing 4.5 |
326 | Configuring Tentakel |
327 +--------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
328 | # echo "set ssh_path=\"`which ssh`\"" >> /etc/tentakel.conf |
329 | # echo "set method=\"ssh\"" >> /etc/tentakel.conf |
330 | # echo 'group ten_gentoos (user="root")' >> /etc/tentakel.conf |
331 | # for i in `seq 10`; do echo -e "\t+gentoo-box-$i"; done >> /etc/tentakel.conf |
332 +--------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
333
334 It might be more practical to simply edit the sample configuration file
335 shipped with Tentakel:
336
337 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
338 | Code Listing 4.6 |
339 | Editing the sample configuration file |
340 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
341 | # cp /usr/share/doc/tentakel/tentakel.conf.example /etc/tentakel.conf |
342 | # nano -w /etc/tentakel.conf |
343 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
344
345 Once you have everything configured, it's time to run Tentakel:
346
347 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
348 | Code Listing 4.7 |
349 | Running Tentakel |
350 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
351 | $ tentakel -g ten_gentoos |
352 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
353
354 This will launch Tentakel's interactive command interface. In order to run a
355 command use the provided exec function:
356
357 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
358 | Code Listing 4.8 |
359 | Running commands within Tentakel |
360 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
361 | $ exec emerge --info |
362 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
363
364 If you are lost in Tentakel's command interface, just run help. You can run
365 Tentakel without the interactive command interface like this:
366
367 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
368 | Code Listing 4.9 |
369 | Running Tentakel without the interactive interface |
370 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
371 | $ tentakel -g ten_gentoos "emerge --info" |
372 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
373
374 These tips only brush the surface of the programs available to distribute
375 commands to machines. If you're unhappy with Cluster SSH and Tentakel, you
376 may want to try out dsh, pdsh, pconsole, and shmux.
377
378 Iotop
379 -----
380
381 When a process is slowing down a computer that has plenty of extra memory and
382 disk space, it is probably because of cpu usage or input/output (I/O). Most
383 Gentooers are used to using top to locate those pesky CPU and memory hogs,
384 but few have ever used iotop to find the disk usage hogs.
385
386 iotop displays columns for the I/O bandwidth read and written by each
387 process/thread during the sampling period. It also displays the percentage of
388 time the thread/process spent while swapping in and while waiting on I/O. In
389 addition the total I/O bandwidth read and written during the sampling period
390 is displayed at the top of the interface.
391
392 Install it with emerge iotop. If Portage warned you that you don't have the
393 necessary kernel options (TASKSTATS and TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING) to run the tool,
394 then you will need to recompile your kernel with the options shown below.
395
396 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
397 | Code Listing 4.1 |
398 | Configuring the kernel for iotop |
399 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
400 | General Setup --> |
401 | [*] Export task/process statistics through netlink |
402 | [ ] Enable per-task delay accounting |
403 | [*] Enable extended accounting over taskstats |
404 | [*] Enable per-task storage I/O accounting |
405 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
406
407 Once you've booted into your reconfigured kernel, you can run iotop from the
408 commandline. Here's what it might look like if you were backing up a DVD:
409
410 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
411 | Code Listing 4.2 |
412 | Running iotop |
413 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
414 | $ iotop |
415 | Total DISK READ: 387.25 K/s | Total DISK WRITE: 221.29 K/s |
416 | PID USER DISK READ DISK WRITE SWAPIN IO> COMMAND |
417 | 7703 root 387.25 K/s 0 B/s 0.00 % 0.00 % tccat -i /shared/... |
418 | 211 root 0 B/s 13.83 K/s 0.00 % 0.00 % [pdflush] |
419 | 7672 root 0 B/s 207.46 K/s 0.00 % 0.00 % transcode -H 10 ... |
420 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
421
422 A misbehaving user might have the following output:
423
424 +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
425 | Code Listing 4.3 |
426 | A runaway user |
427 +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
428 | $ iotop |
429 | Total DISK READ: 5.21 K/s | Total DISK WRITE: 7.37 M/s |
430 | PID USER DISK READ DISK WRITE SWAPIN IO> COMMAND |
431 | 7936 user1 5.21 K/s 7.37 M/s 0.00 % 0.00 % dd if /dev/zero of ./bigfile |
432 +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
433
434 iotop is a good way to see what's eating your disks, so that you can
435 reallocate resources when needed. The program has a few options available, so
436 run iotop --help to get a summary of its capabilities.
437
438 Using lsof: revisited
439 ---------------------
440
441 Last month's edition[36] of Tips and Tricks showed you how to use lsof to
442 find open files and directories.
443
444 36. http://www.gentoo.org/news/en/gmn/20080831-newsletter.xml
445
446 An astute reader emailed the GMN to show another use of lsof: to check for
447 processes that should be restarted after package updates.
448
449 For example, after upgrading a package like openssl, you might need to
450 restart a mail server, a web server, or even several client applications.
451 lsof is kind enough to point out the open files that have been deleted, so
452 you can easily spot these processes:
453
454 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
455 | Code Listing 4.1 |
456 | Finding processes with lsof |
457 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
458 | # lsof | grep 'DEL.*lib' | cut -f 1 -d ' ' | sort -u |
459 +----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
460
461 Note: Some services open and then delete temporary files or shm files, so
462 that's why 'lib' is part of the regex.
463
464 Restarting processes after an upgrade is especially important when the
465 library includes a security fix.

1022 <body>
1023
1024 <p>
1025 The TeX distribution teTeX has been obsoleted as the author has no time to
1026 maintain it anymore. However, there is a complete distribution on top of it,
1027 that is now the successor: TeXLive. Many Linux distributions have already
1028 adopted it as their standard, and it's now the TeX flavor of choice for Gentoo,
1029 as well.
1030 </p>
1031
1032 <p>
1033 You are encouraged to <c>emerge --unmerge tetex</c> and then <c>emerge world</c>
1034 to get to an up-to-date system with a modern TeX version. Please read the <uri

1036 for more detailed instructions.

1084 The <uri link="http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/council/">Gentoo Council</uri> held
1085 its monthly meeting on September 11, 2008. The items put up for discussion were:

1087
1088 <ul>
1089 <li>
1090 <b>Filling the empty slot</b>: as council member <mail link="flameeyes"/>

1092 replaced him. cardoe was the next person from the original voting

1106 The Council met again on September 25, 2008. The items put up for discussion
1107 were:
1108 </p>
1109
1110 <ul>
1111 <li>
1112 <b>EAPI-2</b>: the new <uri link="proj/en/qa/pms.xml">EAPI</uri> is
1113 approved. This brings features such as USE dependencies to Portage; for
1114 example, a package can now directly depend on a package built with USE="foo"
1115 without resorting to trickery or "built_with_use || die" hacks.
1116 </li>
1117 <li>
1118 <b>PROPERTIES in cache</b>: Since using PROPERTIES in the cache is related
1119 to the EAPI, this issue should be settled among package manager developers,
1120 and only present it to the council if they cannot agree on a solution. The
1121 PM developers agreed on adding PROPERTIES to the cache as a value that the
1122 package managers can ignore.
1123 </li>
1124 <li>
1125 <b>PROPERTIES=interactive in ebuilds</b>: This is a retroactive,
1126 backwards-compatible EAPI change that council approved. It allows ebuilds to
1127 set a variable stating up-front that they require user interaction, such as
1128 agreeing to a license or inputting information.

1175 The Gentoo-Quebec group has offered its first training session about the Gentoo
1176 distribution on Saturday 13th, 2008. First of a series of 18, this course
1177 enabled 23 participants to familiarize themselves with the Gentoo LiveCD and to
1178 briefly learn about the command line utilities involved when installing Gentoo.
1179 </p>
1180
1181 <p>
1182 This training session was made possible thanks to the Gentoo-Quebec team as
1183 well as <uri link="http://www.copernic.com/">Copernic</uri>, which provided a training room
1184 and the network installation for all participants. For more information,

1269 <title>Running commands on many machines</title>
1270 <body>
1271
1272 <p>
1273 If you have been logging into your horde of Gentoo boxes one by one in order to
1274 run a command or two, this tip should help you save a lot of time. We provide a
1275 glimpse into some of the methods you can use to run commands on multiple
1276 machines both sequentially and in parellel.
1277 </p>
1278
1279 <p>
1280 The first method is the most primitive. It uses pure <c>bash</c>. Let's say we
1281 have ten machines with the hostnames <b>gentoo-box-1</b>, <b>gentoo-box-2</b>,
1282 and so on. We want to run <c>emerge --info</c> on each machine at the same
1283 time. Here is what we do:
1284 </p>
1285
1286 <pre caption="Running emerge on multiple machines">
1287 $ <i>for i in `seq 10`; do ssh gentoo-box-$i "emerge --info"; done</i>
1288 </pre>
1289
1290 <warn>
1291 Do not try run interactive commands in parallel with this "for" loop. This
1292 includes running it without public key encryption. The machines will prompt you
1293 for passwords, but you will be unable to input your passwords.
1294 </warn>
1295
1296 <p>
1297 If you don't have public key encryption setup for <c>ssh</c>, you should read
1298 the <uri link="/doc/en/articles/openssh-key-management-p1.xml">OpenSSH Key
1299 Management</uri> series of articles. You may also want to consult <uri
1300 link="http://sial.org/howto/openssh/publickey-auth/">this guide</uri>.
1301 </p>
1302
1303 <p>
1304 If you don't want to hassle with public key encryption, writing complicated
1305 "for" loops in bash, and want to run interactive commands, there is a good
1306 option for you: Cluster SSH. Let's install it:
1307 </p>
1308
1309 <pre caption="Installing Cluster SSH">
1310 # <i>emerge clusterssh</i>
1311 </pre>
1312
1313 <p>
1314 Cluster SSH requires X11 in order to work. Cluster SSH works by opening an xterm
1315 window for every machine in the list you provide. It also opens a small command
1316 window where you can type text that gets relayed to other machines' command
1317 lines at the same time. To do the same thing we did before with the ten Gentoo
1318 boxes, we do the following Cluster SSH:
1319 </p>
1320
1321 <pre caption="Starting Cluster SSH">
1322 $ <i>cssh gentoo-box-{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}</i>
1323 </pre>
1324
1325 <p>
1326 First, you will see the machines ask for passwords unless you have public key
1327 encryption set up for them. If one of your machines has a different password, no
1328 worries, you can just click on the window of the machine and type it there. Once
1329 you see yourself logged into all of the machines, you can type commands to all
1330 of them at once or individually.
1331 </p>
1332
1333 <p>
1334 Another alternative is to use Tentakel. Tentakel is used in a more static way.
1335 Users modify a static configuration file, and then tell Tentakel which group of
1336 hosts it should connect to. First, we need to install Tentakel:
1337 </p>
1338
1339 <pre caption="Installing Tentakel">
1340 # <i>emerge tentakel</i>
1341 </pre>
1342
1343 <p>
1344 Next, we create a configuration file:
1345 </p>
1346
1347 <pre caption="Configuring Tentakel">
1348 # <i>echo "set ssh_path=\"`which ssh`\"" >> /etc/tentakel.conf</i>
1349 # <i>echo "set method=\"ssh\"" >> /etc/tentakel.conf</i>
1350 # <i>echo 'group ten_gentoos (user="root")' >> /etc/tentakel.conf</i>
1351 # <i>for i in `seq 10`; do echo -e "\t+gentoo-box-$i"; done >> /etc/tentakel.conf</i>
1352 </pre>
1353
1354 <p>
1355 It might be more practical to simply edit the sample configuration file shipped
1356 with Tentakel:
1357 </p>
1358
1359 <pre caption="Editing the sample configuration file">
1360 # <i>cp /usr/share/doc/tentakel/tentakel.conf.example /etc/tentakel.conf</i>
1361 # <i>nano -w /etc/tentakel.conf</i>
1362 </pre>
1363
1364 <p>
1365 Once you have everything configured, it's time to run Tentakel:
1366 </p>
1367
1368 <pre caption="Running Tentakel">
1369 $ <i>tentakel -g ten_gentoos</i>
1370 </pre>
1371
1372 <p>
1373 This will launch Tentakel's interactive command interface. In order to run a
1374 command use the provided <c>exec</c> function:
1375 </p>
1376
1377 <pre caption="Running commands within Tentakel">
1378 $ <i>exec emerge --info</i>
1379 </pre>
1380
1381 <p>
1382 If you are lost in Tentakel's command interface, just run <c>help</c>. You can
1383 run Tentakel without the interactive command interface like this:
1384 </p>
1385
1386 <pre caption="Running Tentakel without the interactive interface">
1387 $ <i>tentakel -g ten_gentoos "emerge --info"</i>
1388 </pre>
1389
1390 <p>
1391 These tips only brush the surface of the programs available to distribute
1392 commands to machines. If you're unhappy with Cluster SSH and Tentakel, you may
1393 want to try out <c>dsh</c>, <c>pdsh</c>, <c>pconsole</c>, and <c>shmux</c>.

1399 <title>Iotop</title>
1400 <body>
1401
1402 <p>
1403 When a process is slowing down a computer that has plenty of extra memory and
1404 disk space, it is probably because of cpu usage or input/output (I/O). Most
1405 Gentooers are used to using <c>top</c> to locate those pesky CPU and memory
1406 hogs, but few have ever used <c>iotop</c> to find the disk usage hogs.
1407 </p>
1408
1409 <p>
1410 <c>iotop</c> displays columns for the I/O bandwidth read and written by each
1411 process/thread during the sampling period. It also displays the percentage of
1412 time the thread/process spent while swapping in and while waiting on I/O. In
1413 addition the total I/O bandwidth read and written during the sampling period is
1414 displayed at the top of the interface.
1415 </p>
1416
1417 <p>
1418 Install it with <c>emerge iotop</c>. If Portage warned you that you don't have
1419 the necessary kernel options (TASKSTATS and TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING) to run the tool,
1420 then you will need to recompile your kernel with the options shown below.
1421 </p>
1422
1423 <pre caption="Configuring the kernel for iotop">
1424 General Setup -->
1425 [*] Export task/process statistics through netlink
1426 [ ] Enable per-task delay accounting
1427 [*] Enable extended accounting over taskstats
1428 [*] Enable per-task storage I/O accounting
1429 </pre>
1430
1431 <p>
1432 Once you've booted into your reconfigured kernel, you can run <c>iotop</c> from
1433 the commandline. Here's what it might look like if you were backing up a DVD:
1434 </p>
1435
1436 <pre caption="Running iotop">
1437 $ <i>iotop</i>
1438 Total DISK READ: 387.25 K/s | Total DISK WRITE: 221.29 K/s
1439 PID USER DISK READ DISK WRITE SWAPIN IO> COMMAND
1440 7703 root 387.25 K/s 0 B/s 0.00 % 0.00 % tccat -i /shared/...
1441 211 root 0 B/s 13.83 K/s 0.00 % 0.00 % [pdflush]
1442 7672 root 0 B/s 207.46 K/s 0.00 % 0.00 % transcode -H 10 ...
1443 </pre>
1444
1445 <p>
1446 A misbehaving user might have the following output:
1447 </p>
1448
1449 <pre caption="A runaway user">
1450 $ <i>iotop</i>
1451 Total DISK READ: 5.21 K/s | Total DISK WRITE: 7.37 M/s
1452 PID USER DISK READ DISK WRITE SWAPIN IO> COMMAND
1453 7936 user1 5.21 K/s 7.37 M/s 0.00 % 0.00 % dd if /dev/zero of ./bigfile
1454 </pre>
1455
1456 <p>
1457 <c>iotop</c> is a good way to see what's eating your disks, so that you
1458 can reallocate resources when needed. The program has a few options available,
1459 so run <c>iotop --help</c> to get a summary of its capabilities.

1465 <title>Using lsof: revisited</title>
1466 <body>
1467
1468 <p>
1469 <uri link="/news/en/gmn/20080831-newsletter.xml">Last month's edition</uri> of
1470 Tips and Tricks showed you how to use <c>lsof</c> to find open files and
1471 directories.
1472 </p>
1473
1474 <p>
1475 An astute reader emailed the GMN to show another use of <c>lsof</c>: to check
1476 for processes that should be restarted after package updates.
1477 </p>
1478
1479 <p>
1480 For example, after upgrading a package like <c>openssl</c>, you might need to
1481 restart a mail server, a web server, or even several client applications.
1482 <c>lsof</c> is kind enough to point out the open files that have been deleted,
1483 so you can easily spot these processes:
1484 </p>
1485
1486 <pre caption="Finding processes with lsof">
1487 # <i>lsof | grep 'DEL.*lib' | cut -f 1 -d ' ' | sort -u</i>
1488 </pre>
1489
1490 <note>
1491 Some services open and then delete temporary files or <c>shm</c> files, so
1492 that's why 'lib' is part of the regex.
1493 </note>
1494
1495 <p>
1496 Restarting processes after an upgrade is especially important when the library
1497 includes a security fix.
