Jess and I are taking off for a month or sightseeiing, bicycling, backpacking in Italy and southern France. And the school server project is coming along for the ride.
It turns out that the trimslice computer, and an XO, fit pretty easily in a backpack, along with the clothes, and stuff, distributed also into bike saddlebags. So if I get tired, at the end of the day, I’ll have an engaging school server puzzle to figure out.
So far, I’ve been able to get most of the services started under systemd. Right now I’m working on postgresql and moodle. The process involves making changes to xs-setup scripts so that the necessary processes start up automatically under systemd, the new startup system used in Fedora. (success so far with dhcpd, networking, httpd, named, sshd).
This post is a test of whether the XO is adequate for continuing to maintain the schoolserver blog (I’m cheating, and using a USB keyboard).
