xfs troubles

On my testing computer lived till today quite outdated Debian Unstable. As I needed to perform some testing with that which required recent version of some tools, I bravely did upgrade using aptitude.

After two hours of downloading, packages started to install, but it crashed while installing linux-kernel-headers. Well as I didn't know in what shape my last tests kept Debian and XFS filesystem it uses for root, I rebooted using live CD and ran xfs_repair.

It found several errors, I rebooted and reran aptitude. To my suprise the problem did not went away, and after another boot using live CD, I saw that xfs_repair still sees those problems.

Fortunately I noticed that live CD contains quite old xfs_repair and I used the one which is currently in unstable. And it seems to finally fix my problem! Now I can finally start my upgrade and it works :-).

Čistá duše - Music club with African music

This time it won't be about food, but only about entertainment. Čistá duše is music club in Prague centre (on Charles square). I think it can be called as meeting point of African culture (well at least it looked as such to me :-)).

Every evening (probably) you can listen there to rhythms of African drums and enjoy dancing on them.

Drinks are for reasonable price for this part of town, but you won't get there anything to eat, so you should choose something else to fill your hungry stomach.

Sonata 1.0 for Debian

I finally forced myself to prepare packages of new Sonata release. I hoped I will be able to upload them myself, but NM process will probably need some more time, so I just sent request for sponsoring to Daniel, who kidly uploaded previous version.

You will probably miss some of new Sonata features in Debian, because some Python modules which are needed for it are not available. Maybe somebody will package them, if not, I will do it on my own sometimes :-).
