257. Wine 1.5.15 on debian testing/wheezy --finally sorting out that annoying libjpeg

UPDATE 16 May 2013: See here for Wine 1.5.30: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/416-wine-1530-in-chroot.html

UPDATE (10th Jan 2013): See here for Wine 1.5.21 using the multiarch approach: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/308-compiling-wine-1521-on-debian.html

Pretty much just follow this post:
The big difference here is that it seems to compile ok with libjpeg.

And here are the release notes

Install the pre-requisites 
(haven't checked this list for a while -- there may be a few too many packages)
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-dev bison flex gcc libc6-dev libfontconfig-dev libfreetype6-dev libglu-dev libgsm1-dev libice-dev libjpeg-dev libldap-dev libmpg123-dev libncurses5-dev libopenal-dev libpng-dev libsm-dev libssl-dev libusb-dev libx11-dev libxcomposite-dev libxcursor-dev libxext-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libxml2-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libxslt-dev libxt-dev libxxf86vm-dev make libcapi20-dev liblcms-dev libsane-dev libhal-dev libdbus-1-dev valgrind prelink libcups2-dev opencl-dev lib32opencl1 oss4-dev gettext lib32v4l-dev lib32ncurses5-dev lib32asound2-dev libtiff4-dev libgphoto2-2-dev

Get new source:
cd ~/tmp
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Source/wine-1.5.15.tar.bz2
tar xvf wine-1.5.15.tar.bz2
cd wine-1.5.15/

To avoid
configure: WARNING: libjpeg 32-bit development files not found, JPEG won't be supported.

edit /usr/include/jpeglib.h and delete

24   #ifndef JCONFIG_INCLUDED        /* in case jinclude.h already did */
25   #include "jconfig.h"            /* widely used configuration options */
26   #endif

Then do 


which yields

configure: libOSMesa 32-bit development files not found (or too old), OpenGL rendering in bitmaps won't be supported.
configure: OpenCL 32-bit development files not found, OpenCL won't be supported.
configure: gstreamer-0.10 base plugins 32-bit development files not found, gstreamer support disabled
configure: libgsm 32-bit development files not found, gsm 06.10 codec won't be supported.
configure: Finished.  Do 'make' to compile Wine.

Neither of these issues are fatal -- depending on what you use wine for.

Time to install:
sudo checkinstall --install=no
sudo dpkg -i wine-1.5.15-1_amd64.deb

And you're done!

256. Briefly: Setting up ganglia on a debian beowulf cluster

On all your nodes (e.g. using clusterssh):
sudo apt-get install ganglia-monitor

On your front node only:
sudo apt-get install ganglia-webfrontend
sudo cp /etc/ganglia-webfrontend/apache.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ganglia.conf
sudo service apache2 restart

Edit /etc/ganglia/gmetad.conf and at a minimum add
data_source "debiwolf" 10 beryllium tantalum boron neon
data_source "debiwolf" 10
You can also specify additional information

gridname "rupert"
authority ""

Go to http://localhost/ganglia in your browser. If you get
There was an error collecting ganglia data ( fsockopen error: Connection refused

Then do
sudo service gmetad start

Otherwise you should see something like this:

On all your nodes:
You may want to do
sudo service ganglia-monitor restart

if some of your nodes aren't showing.

Edit your /etc/ganglia/gmond.conf:

cluster {
        name = "Debiwolf"
        owner = "Me"
        latlong = "unspecified"
        url = "None"

255. Google Blogger Stats gone

Update: And...most of the stats are back. (03:19 GMT 15 October 2012)

02:30 GMT 15 October 2012
Did the google stats data just get reset/deleted?

Suddenly my stat counter shows just above 30 visitors -- all-time. That's a bit fewer than the 72k I was expecting. Oh well. I've at least got statcounter too keep me entertained.

It seems to have happened around 0:00 GMT 15 October 2012, although looking at the stats on blogger it may have happened around 9-10 am Eastern Aussie Daylight Savings time.

The angry posts are already beginning to appear: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/blogger/eOZyb9ws2IU
which bumps stuff in this direction:
which has this statement from Blogger:
"We are aware of this issue and working to resolve it. "
And here's the official Blogger blog: http://knownissues.blogspot.com.au/

Not that I've ever had much use for the 'official' google stats much anyway -- although I obviously care enough about it to 1) notice that they're gone and 2) blog about it. But whatever.
