  • Calamares CI Extended

    Calamares is a modular installer for Linux distributions using Qt and KDE technologies. It is used by dozens of Linux distro’s for that crucial step of “get the ISO onto the HDD”, or some modern variant thereof. It’s modular, so distro’s can pick-and-choose what is needed: OpenRC or systemd, for instance. But it’s hard to cover everything that Linux distributions might need, so Calamares also has an “extensions” repository for more specialised modules. Let’s take a look.

  • KDE on FreeBSD 2021O1

  • KDE's Fiduciary Licensing Agreement

    The Fiduciary License Agreement (FLA) for KDE is a document with a long history; it has served us across two, maybe three major Qt and KDE versions, across probably two changes in version control systems, and a host of changes in the world and the KDE community. This week I started to update the document for the current situation.

  • Calamares CI Infrastructure

    Calamares is a Linux system installer used by dozens of different Linux distributions; it’s an Open Source project and runs its processes and development entirely in the open. Like any good software project, Calamares has continuous builds (let’s call it continuous integration, CI for short anyway) running to check that things are OK. Let’s take a look at what powers this CI.

  • Local Downers

    This blog has been running for at least 16 years in various locations, so it has seen its share of births and job changes and so it is inevitable that there are also deaths. Let me tell you there is no way to put “fun” in a funeral.
