I installed the 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) 64-bit alpha 3 this morning to check out some of the new features. And since I’ve done a few other articles about running Ubuntu in a VM I thought I’d share the experience yet again.
If you’re running VMWare Fusion 3.0+ (or the current release of Workstation 7) then the version of VMWare Tools you have with your software can successfully install with no manual intervention. Simply pick easy install and let VMWare do all the work.
If you’re running an older version you will want to take a look at my Ubuntu 9.10 instructions for help with getting open-vm-tools running for you in 10.04.
I’ll update this article if anything changes (the kernel freeze for Lucid Lynx is not until March 11).
As of r39934 Chromium now supports the server_name TLS extension (server name indication) in OS X (latest build). This support requires OS X 10.5.7 or later. Hopefully it’ll make its way into a dev/beta/stable release of Google Chrome itself soon.
For those who are more curious than they ought to be about how I wrote this patch… Apple added support in their Secure Transport library for the server_name TLS extension, but has not updated their documentation. As of 10.5.7 (or possibly 10.5.6) the SSLSetPeerDomainName function — which is ostensibly used for OS level certificate verification — causes OS X to send the server_name extension in the TLS client hello. However, since Chromium doesn’t use OS X’s built-in verification it wasn’t passing this data through prior to the patch.
To test you can hit up my IDN SNI site https://☣.ws/ or https://alice.sni.velox.ch/. The former will throw a certificate error if you are on a non-SNI enabled browser and the latter will have text stating that the SNI extension is missing.
When I purchased my 5D I told myself I’d try my hand at a video. Well, one year later I’ve finally worked up the ambition to learn some video editing and publish something This video represents the past year of owning this camera. I learned a great deal in the process (mostly about how to shoot better source footage for the future), but I hope you all enjoy it.
