Built the package locally
This uses the official Debian packaging statically.
  1. Change to your working directory and remember it
  2. Clone upstream git repository
    cd $DIR
    git clone git://
  3. Tell git-buildpackage where the upstream branch is
    cd $DIR/performous/
    cat <<EOF > .git/gbp.conf
    # this is the upstream branch:

Streamlining the process of uploading

Posted 08-17-2010 at 11:21 AM by sag47

Samba : New windows clients cant join samba domain

All of a sudden when you add new clients to the domain you get the error message :Logon Failure:unknown user name or bad password. This to me seems like a windows error message and not a samba error. When you remove an existing machine (ie on domain) and then try to rejoin it to the domain you fail.

Please help any assistance will be appreciated

A Little Addition To The Hardware Family

Posted 08-17-2010 at 05:55 AM by brianL

I bought a netbook yesterday. Cute little buggers, aren't they? I would have liked an ARM-based one, but there are none (decent ones, anyway) readily available. Intel Atom has a monopoly, it seems. So I got an Asus eeepc 1001HA for just under 200. It's got XP Home preinstalled, and I've put Ubuntu Netbook Edition on it. I don't know how long this arrangement will last. Not keen on the XP, after all I've got XP Pro on my laptop, so that may have to go sooner or later. UNE is OK, so far. We shall...
