So here are the commands I use to run my Docker containers for Nextcloud and Etherpad.

Nextcloud
————–

$ sudo docker pull nextcloud
$ sudo docker run -d -p 8080:80 –name nextcloud
// this runs Nextcloud with an internal database at port 8080.  I give it the –name Nextcloud so I can restart it by simply running $ sudo docker start nextcloud when I want to restart //

Etherpad
————

$ sudo docker pull fuerst/etherpad-docker
$ sudo docker run docker run -p 9001:9001 –name etherpad
      -v /opt/etherpad-lite/var:/opt/etherpad-lite/var
      -v /opt/etherpad-lite/node_modules:/opt/etherpad-lite/node
      fuerst/etherpad-docker

// this makes it persistent between restarts.  You can also use $ sudo docker start etherpad for this.  For some reason I have to run this container last in my container chain for it to work correctly.  

**CAVEATS**
This is pretty insecure.  You should probably run this behind Apache using vhosts with a certificate to use https for everything.  There is also a way to run all fo this with a Docker Compose file, but I haven’t learned that witchcraft yet.  Lyle (x1101) is a master of this stuff so you might touch base with him.

Mycroft.ai distributed an e-mail that their Beta version (18.02b) was finally ready with instructions on how to disassemble the Mycroft and re-flash the SD card.  I attempted apt-get update/upgrade instead, but got a lock up half way through upgrade and a unit that would not boot. Wrote the new image to a 64Gb SD and successfully replaced the 4Gb SD that came with the Mycroft.  Plugged the Mycroft back in, and re-paired it to home.mycroft.ai, then repeated all the steps I covered in ep 97.

Hi Linux LUG Cast,

I’m Nick Vidal from the Open Source Initiative (OSI).

The “open source” label was created at a strategy session held on
February 3rd, 1998 in Palo Alto, California. That same month, the Open
Source Initiative was founded as a general educational and advocacy
organization to raise awareness and adoption for the superiority of an
open development process.

In 2018, we’ll be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Open Source.
This is a huge milestone for everyone involved with technology.
Nowadays open source is ubiquitous, recognized across industries as a
fundamental component to infrastructure, as well as a critical factor
for driving innovation.

We are organizing several activities along the year to commemorate
this special occasion, including the launch of Opensource.net and
worldwide celebrations in conjunction with major tech conferences
(FOSDEM, OSCON, Open Source Summit, FOSSAsia, Campus Party,
Linux.conf.au, etc).

I’m reaching out to you to let you know that I’m at your full disposal
to help you cover the Anniversary. Please let me know if you are
interested in a few quotes from the OSI Board of Directors or from
industry leaders.

Thanks,
Nick

I wanted to play “Guns of Icarus” so I installed Steam on Solus OS even though the Snaps version isn’t ready yet.  It’s supposed to integrate seamlessly when it is.  I’ve only tried the one game.  Everything seems a lot smoother than when I tried last year.
>sudo eopkg install steam

From the EULA I agreed to online, the PicoBrew C home brewing system I ordered for $399 on Black Friday utilizes a mix of Open Source and proprietary software (I’m guessing the base OS is Linux).  I will be here the middle of next week, may not be enough time for me to run a batch before next show.

I didn’t get MakuluLinux installed on either bare metal or a VM.  On second look, I did have a go with this years ago and it doesn’t look like it’s had an update in two years and the cert on the homepage seems to have expired since last show.  Finally, the nVidia GT730 I ordered only came today.

Failed to get quasselconf.py working on the Arch server, probably because it has QT dependencies and the server isn’t running X.  Had the bright idea of copying the config files from /var/lib/quassel to a shared folder and installing quasselconf on the Solus desktop:

>sudo eopkg install python3-devel
>sudo pip3 install quasselconf
>sudo pip3 install pyqt5
>quasselconf -c path-to-copied-config-files -t core
Which returns – a blank line

Firefox Quantum 57 is now default on Solus
