Running Webex on Ubuntu
Webex running on Ubuntu and other non-Windows platforms is literally a click away, in this case the CMR (Collaboration Meeting Room).
Webex is a fact of life for many people and for many Linux (BSD and other non-Windows) users, it has been a thorn in the side with people going so far as to set up virtual machines just to run Cisco’s collaboration software. While Webex is written in Java, it isn’t so simple to get running everywhere and apparently not all features are available for non-Windows users.
Most likely you are running up against the following message after logging into *.webex.com
Your browser,browser version, or operating system is currently unsupported
This requires the intervention of whoever is administrating the *.webex.com account and they can modify it in the following way.
Using Qemu and Chroot to replace your cross-compile toolchain
Awhile back I wrote about how you can set up a cross-compile toolchain for compiling on x86_64 with the Raspberry Pi as a target. There is another, perhaps easier way to do the same thing by using Qemu 2.0 as your backend.
By installing and enabling Qemu support, you can run code compiled for another architecture (that is supported by Qemu) on your native machine. You can then create a Chroot environment, perhaps similar to what you have on your Raspberry Pi, and run it as if it was natively.
Vagrant, Virtualbox and Ubuntu Wily Weerwolf: Getting them to play along.
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Weerwolf) which automatically upgraded VirtualBox from 4.3 to 5.0 and broke compatibility with Vagrant 1.6 in the process. Thinking that Vagrant knows about this and they claim VBox 5.0 compatbility, I upgraded to 1.7 and came across the same error!
Vagrant attempted to execute the capability ‘configure_networks’ on the detect guest OS ‘linux’
There is a workaround!
Enterprise all your Twisted applications with Ldaptor
We’re proud to announce the release of 14.0.0 of Ldaptor, now a first party Twisted project! Ldaptor is an asynchronous LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) client and server implementation written for Twisted in Python.
The biggest change is that Ldaptor is now sponsored by Amplidata. Through them we were able to get development, bug fixes and Twisted first-party sponsorship back online. We now have continuous integration (CI) with a wide matrix of support for py26/py27/pypy using Twisted 12.1 to 14.0 (and trunk). We also have about 75% code coverage with unit testing!
You can download 14.0.0 and other releases here: Ldaptor Github Releases
