Random Ramblings of a Sysadmin

The hardware behind bugzilla.mozilla.org

Wed, 04 May 2011 18:40:38 +0000

I recently did up a diagram of how our Bugzilla site was set up, mostly for the benefit of other sysadmins trying to find the various pieces of it.  Several folks expressed interest in sharing it with the community just to show an example of how we were set up.  So I cleaned it up … Continue reading The hardware behind bugzilla.mozilla.org



Android application wish list: monitor phone status via a web page served from the phone

Sun, 08 Aug 2010 21:53:58 +0000

I have an HTC Evo running Android 2.2 (Froyo).  I absolutely love the thing.  The only downside is the short battery life.  One really cool feature it has is the WiFi HotSpot utility, which lets you turn the phone into a WiFi access point, sharing the 3G or 4G internet connection to the wifi.  It … Continue reading Android application wish list: monitor phone status via a web page served from the phone



Upgrading bugzilla.mozilla.org to version 3.4.3

Wed, 11 Nov 2009 20:41:57 +0000

We’re finally at the point where I can say we’re ready to upgrade Bugzilla @ Mozilla this weekend.  We’re aiming for Sunday evening (probably 6pm PST).  I’ll post again when I know how long it’ll be down for (and that’ll be included in the eventual downtime notice on the IT blog as well). There’s a … Continue reading Upgrading bugzilla.mozilla.org to version 3.4.3



Upgrading from RHEL4 to RHEL5 without a CD or a PXE server

Mon, 31 Aug 2009 20:55:07 +0000

At Mozilla, since our server farm has gotten so big, we’ve gotten reloading and upgrading machines kind of down to a science. We have a PXE server in each colo, and installations and upgrades run over the network. It’s a great system until you get to one of the following two situations: The machine you … Continue reading Upgrading from RHEL4 to RHEL5 without a CD or a PXE server



Help from the community ensures a smooth download experience for Firefox 3.0.8

Sun, 29 Mar 2009 05:29:03 +0000

Most people reading this probably already know that Mozilla utilizes a network of volunteers hosting downloads of Firefox (and other Mozilla products).  All of these volunteer sites are listed in a database with a numeric weight that shows, relative to the other sites in the database, how much traffic they can handle.  When you click … Continue reading Help from the community ensures a smooth download experience for Firefox 3.0.8



Replacing Google Groups for Mozilla Newsgroups?

Wed, 04 Mar 2009 04:41:08 +0000

This article is a repost of a previous article, but since I didn’t get very many responses, I figured I’d try again with a more attention-grabbing headline. 🙂 Does anyone know of any decent web interfaces for NNTP out there? Preferably open source that we could host ourselves. There appear to be a LOT of … Continue reading Replacing Google Groups for Mozilla Newsgroups?



Web interfaces for NNTP

Tue, 24 Feb 2009 12:11:16 +0000

Does anyone know of any decent web interfaces for NNTP out there?  Preferably open source that we could host ourselves.  There appear to be a LOT of them, so what I’m really asking is, which of all of those are actually any good, and would work for what we need? 🙂  (or be close enough … Continue reading Web interfaces for NNTP



Seven Things

Mon, 26 Jan 2009 05:59:59 +0000

So yeah, I got tagged for this by both Eric Shepherd and Sean Alamares. Ground rules: 1. Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post. 2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post. 3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links … Continue reading Seven Things



Serving AppleShare from RHEL5 with Netatalk 2.0.3

Tue, 13 Jan 2009 08:57:58 +0000

So I was recently trying to set up a fileshare in one of our offices and trying to get it visible to the filesharing stuff in Mac OS X, since several people in the office have Mac laptops.  The original thought (since it’s supposedly better-supported on Linux) was to set up Samba, but our authentication … Continue reading Serving AppleShare from RHEL5 with Netatalk 2.0.3



bugzilla.mozilla.org update

Tue, 02 Sep 2008 14:32:08 +0000

On Friday, I pushed a small update to bugzilla.mozilla.org that fixed bug 452799, where users who didn’t have ‘canconfirm’ privs in Bugzilla were posting bugs that had a status of NEW rather than UNCONFIRMED. This morning, I pushed an update to bugzilla.mozilla.org containing a plethora of additional fixes to address concerns raised since the Bugzilla … Continue reading bugzilla.mozilla.org update
