Update: Nokia Booklet 3G, PRADS, Ubuntu Release in Norway and SpreadUbuntu for Release party material

Real life has been catching up with me lately and I have been busy. But the show must go on and I have some updates:

  • Nokia Booklet 3G testing coming up!
    I have been chosen by WOMWorld/Nokia to test the Nokia Booklet 3G mini laptop which hopefully will be arriving in the coming weeks. If you want me to test something please add a comment and I will take a look at doing it. My plan is as follows:

    • Test its performance as a working tool
    • have the pleasure of the Booklet being used as a gadget for fun
    • Check how well it works with different operative systems (you guessed right: I am trying Ubuntu on it)
  • PRADSPassive Real-time Asset Detection System
    People that read this blog know how much I appreciate Free Software solving real world problems! So I want to invite you all to check out PRADS which is one of those projects that deliver from day 1 and will make your life in a IT Service Management and Security context easier. PRADS (which is inspired by passive.sourceforge.net, lcamtuf.coredump.cx/p0f and others…) aims at:

    • OS fingerprinting (IPv4 and IPv6)
      • TCP: SYN, SYN+ACK, Stray-ACK, RST, FIN  (Compatible with p0f fingerprints)
      • UDP (Not seen in any other tools before!)
      • ICMP (Not seen in any other tools before!)
      • Others to be implemented (DHCP and behavior based etc)
    • Service and client detection (IPv4 and IPv6):
      • TCP services and client detection (Client detection not seen in any other tools before!?)
      • UDP services and client detection (Not seen in any other tools before!?)
    • Asset detection:
      • If a asset uses IPv4 or IPv6, it will be detected.
      • ARP detection (MAC addresses of assets)
      • VLAN detection
      • IP in IP and GRE decoding…

      PRADS comes in two versions:

    • The perl version supports DBI for database handling (sqlite (default), MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MSSQL…)
    • The C version is based on output modules, and stdout (done), logfile (done-) and binary mode is currently being developed.

    Go have your fun!

  • Lucid Release parties in Norway
    As Ubuntu 10.04 – Lucid Lynx is shaping us rather nicely the release party in Oslo has been shaping up for a while and now only the last details remain. I hope to have time this weekend to finish them up and make an announcement. For details please see our wiki planning page for activities under the Lucid cycle (Norwegian only).

    • If you live in Norway, read this and want to hook up with other ubunter@s around. just make it happen! Contact me and I will let you know how you can get your local party kickstarted.
  • Use SpreadUbuntu to share your Lucid Lynx material and spread the 120.04 countdown buttons!
    Just reminding everyone that SpreadUbuntu exists and it is there for you as a nice platform for the global Ubuntu community to share material for release parties and general promotions in many different languages!
    Join the 10.04 countdown buttons campaign as well and help others have access to them easily.
    If you need material for your LoCo or have made something yourself please share it with us all. Head over to the site and get/upload your material. You can do this as an anonymous user or using your Launchpad OpenID.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

If you are in Europe and can’t leave your premises because of the volcanic ashes, do not hesitate and make the best out of it: Enjoy the spring while you can!

  1. If you have the chance to try and setup a working config with ubuntu + gma video drivers, please publish how u did it.

    Right now I’m thinking to try and use Jolicloud’s video drivers for the booklet since the standard ubuntu distros don’t support the video card on the booklet.

    • I will.

      Have read extensively on the subject and it seems that it is hell to get it working as of now. Will test Lucid on it or tweak with different drivers until it works.

    • On YouTube I saw movies with working (Hardware Acceleration, hibernation etc.) ubuntu 9.10 on booklet.

      When You will try installation of 10.4?

      • As soon as I get the devide I will post and let you know.
