Well, I just started the adventure to upgrade my NAS server from i386 to amd64.. Why? I want to enable flash-cache, which is currently not compatible with 32-bit kernels.
For this I am using the "Cross Grading"
Note: This is dangerous stuff. If you are not really deep into Debian you should prefer reinsalling! Backups are mandatory.
For security reasons (CVE-2009-2948) samba ceases to support setuid mount.cifs. Until at least a proper fix has been generated (saw patches for them, but at least in Debian they are not or defunc (Patches: http://archives.free.net.ph/message/20100326.142523.e959e38d.en.html, details of the problem http://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2009-2948.html )
(IMHO the CVE is valid, but only makes sense in an multi-user enviorment and if you want to store your passwords in some files. Both are false for me. )
However, I need a working system. The other option is waiting until upstreams deciding what's better for me -- a security problem not touching my samba usage or no service at all. (Yes, I'm a little upset by this -- hitten cold by this "improvement" and finding out that they indeed choosen a way to "fix" it by disabling the execution at all. When I read the CVE notice from samba, it could also be done to disable the offending "information leaking" command options when run setuid... Well.)
Well *taking deep breath* lets stop ranting:
I found a small bug for ReCaptcha: If you do not select a style, the generated Java Script code will be invalid and therefore the lanugage selection will not work.
Just select a style, for example "red" and everthing works fine.
There also some issues with several templates (for example MinimaPlus) : These issues are CSS related and show themself by a "broken bottom border" of the widget. I am currently trying to figure out how this can be solved without the need of a new CSS file to be included.
If you need a intermediate solution, please mail me for instructions.
For my upcoming trip, I am planning to buy me a new digital camera. First I was after a digital SLR, but now I found the Fujifikm Finepix S9600.
Its quite an older modell, but the technical details are quite ok.
As I am currently too lazy to quote all the nice details, I just post an amazon.de link to the project, where all the details are available:
