After our first night in Cambridge with Tab and Gildas where we expierenced some traditional English lack of culture , I woke up this morning ready for the first LinuxConference Europe , the schedule looks good I hope the conference lives up to my expectations.
So the first stop of the day was in Johnatan Corbets Kernel Report talk.
As on the GPLv3 question Jonathan mentions that it will probably never happen in the kernel, one of the biggest reason is that you can't possibly trace back everybody who once contributed to the kernel , l
et alone have them all agree on the chance of license.
Next step was the OS Circular talk by Kuniyasu Suzaki
OS Circular is a framework of Internet Disk Image Distributor for anonymous OSes, it bases lots of stuf on Fuse and supports different Virtualisation techniques, pretty interresting.
It reminds me of the original Xenoservers project. If you are looking in this direction also have a look at Floz (Free Live OS Zoo)
Too bad Stephen Heminger wasn't at the conference in time so we had to head into Jeff Dike's talk ..
As Alasdair told me he still had a free slot on monday afternoon which Stephen could fill up if he showed up and I just ran into him in the hallway I'll be trying to catch his talk later.
One of the talks I had been looking forward to was the Ganeti talk, I was pretty dissapointed by the lack of depth in this talk and the general approach, honestly I don't care on how many machines you are
deploying it. I wan't to know how it works, what you are using underneath etc. I have to download the tarbal and look into it , but it seems they are pretty old versions of Xen and DRBD .
If in the next decade I find some spare time .. I`ll be talking about my experiences with it here ;)
More later ..
