tl;dr: I just got a Yubikey 5 and set it up on a bunch of things. You should too, because WebAuthn is awesome. Now the long version! Two-factor authentication has been a thing for a while now. You’re probably familiar with it in various forms. There’s SMS-based 2FA, commonly used by banks, where they text […]
Youtube is both an awful idea and flat out immoral. There is no plausible justification for a system that depends on grossly underpaid contractors to watch five hours a day of grotesque violence. It shouldn’t exist. Don’t use it and don’t contribute to it. That’s all.
Gather round the fire, kids, it’s time for another Debugging Adventure! These are posts where I write up the process of diagnosing the root cause of a bug, where it turned out to be interesting (to me, anyway…) This case – Bugzilla #1750575 – involved dnfdragora, the package management tool used on Fedora Xfce, which […]
So in case you hadn’t heard, the Fedora infrastructure team is currently trying to nudge people in the direction of moving from fedmsg to fedora-messaging. Fedmsg is the Fedora project-wide messaging bus we’ve had since 2012. It backs FMN / Fedora Notifications and Badges, and is used extensively within Fedora infrastructure for the general purpose […]
I was really pleased to see this blog post today, because I was looking for exactly this a few weeks ago and was sad to find it didn’t exist. Now it does! Displaying on an external screen via wifi is a really handy thing that is increasingly commonly available. Lately I’m finding most TVs I […]
Hot on the heels of adding installer image build/install tests to openQA, I’ve now added tests which do just the same, but for the Workstation live image. That means that, when running the desktop tests for an update, openQA will also run a test that builds a Workstation live image and a test that boots […]
I’ve just got back from my Devconf.cz 2019 trip, after spending a few days after the conference in Red Hat’s Brno office with other Fedora QA team members, then a few days visiting family. I gave both my talks – Don’t Move That Fence ‘Til You Know Why It’s There and Things Fedora QA Robots […]
For anyone who – inexplicably – hasn’t already had it in their social calendar in pink sharpie for months, I will be at Devconf.cz 2019 this weekend, at FIT VUT in Brno. I’ll be doing two talks: Things Fedora QA Robots Do on Friday at 3pm (which is basically a brain dump about the pile […]
It’s been a while since I wrote about significant developments in Fedora openQA, so today I’ll be writing about two! I wrote about one of them a bit in my last post, but that was primarily about a bug I ran into along the way, so now let’s focus on the changes themselves. Testing of […]
Yep, folks, it’s that time again – time for one of old Grandpa Adam’s tall tales of root causing adventure… There’s a sort of catch-22 situation in Fedora that has been a personal bugbear for a very long time. It mainly affects Branched releases – each new Fedora release, when it has branched from Rawhide, […]
