Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Way Ahead of Schedule

I reported before that I was a little ahead of schedule in making Kolab 16.1 available for Debian Jessie, and as it turns out I was wrong — I’m way ahead. In fact, installing and configuring Kolab 16.1 on Jessie passes without any major head-aches. I think the one little tidbit I have left relates… Continue reading Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Way Ahead of Schedule

Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Ahead of Schedule

I told you earlier this week I would be working on providing Debian packages for Kolab 16 next week, but an appointment I had this week was cancelled, and I get to get started just ever so slightly earlier than expected. This lengthens the window of time I have to deal with all the necessities,… Continue reading Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Ahead of Schedule

Heads-up on NSS 3.27, Guam

Many distributions, among which Fedora in 23 & 24, and Arch Linux, have recently shipped NSS 3.27, sometimes packaged as 3.27.0, or even 3.27.1. This release may just have triggered some confusion about disabling, enabling, and defaulting to or not, the NSS implementation of TLS version 1.3 (currently in draft). Fun! We’ve received reports from… Continue reading Heads-up on NSS 3.27, Guam

Re: 503s on git.kolab.org

I’ve told you yesterday, that “503 Service Unavailable” errors on git.kolab.org were caused by the system running out of memory. I’ve meanwhile taken the following actions; I’ve nailed down the particular task at hand causing the OOM to 2999348, It is related to T1351, I suspect the so-called “Transaction Publish Worker” task executed for it… Continue reading Re: 503s on git.kolab.org

503s on git.kolab.org

We regularly experience “503: Service Unavailable” on git.kolab.org as of late, even though the system is more up to date, and both fatter and leaner. Fatter, because more resources are allocated to it. More CPU, more memory, larger APC, opcache, and database services got separated out from the system, and put on to a MariaDB… Continue reading 503s on git.kolab.org

Service Window: git.kolab.org migration

It’s been a while since we last updated Phabricator, and it’s been a while since the overall system that runs git.kolab.org was paid attention to. Suffice it to say that it’s time to upgrade the system. We’ve meanwhile packaged Phabricator and its dependencies, stripped off some superfluous external dependencies that it shipped, and fixed some… Continue reading Service Window: git.kolab.org migration
