Telepon Rakyat

Standard

Halo,

Singkat saja, sekilas info, saya dan rekan-rekan sedang terlibat dalam sebuah proyek yang unik yang kami sebut dengan VoIP ID. Sila baca perkenalan VoIP ID disini.

2 Hari yang lalu kami berdiskusi untuk menamakannya dengan sesuatu yang lebih menarik. Kang Onno muncul dengan ide: pokok nya ada “telepon” dan “rakyat”.

Maka didapatlah alamat website baru untuk proyek VoIP ID, yaitu: http://teleponrakyat.id

Demikian sekilas info, sampai kabar berikutnya :)

Install darktable from source on Ubuntu 14.10

Standard

darktable is an amazing software to deal with raw files taken from various camera.

Here is the description I get from README.md file inside the source directory:

darktable is an open source photography workflow application and RAW developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

Certainly there is a simple way to install darktable that is by using apt-get once you added the PPA. More information about that can be read from here.

Currently the PPA will give you darktable 1.4.2 which I found to be OK but I simply need to test the latest, hoping for some fixes or UI changes and new feature. The version 1.4.2 was working fine with some hiccups here and there. The latest one seems faster with no hiccups, couldn’t notice any UI changes though. At the moment, compiling from source get me darktable 1.5.1+68~ge99de72.

VoIP ID

Standard

VoIP ID adalah sebuah proyek terbuka yang digelar dengan biaya tidak besar hasil donasi sana-sini, didukung kang Onno dan rekan-rekan lain yang sebelumnya berperan di VoIP Rakyat.

Proyek VoIP ID adalah bagian dari proyek ENUM ID (tentang ini menyusul).

Hasil akhir yang diinginkan dari VoIP ID adalah sebuah layanan yang dapat berjalan dengan biaya semurah mungkin untuk menyediakan VoIP server seperti VoIP Rakyat dengan domain masing-masing. Mudahnya VoIP ID adalah VoIP service in a cloud atau Hosted VoIP service, terserah istilah mana yang paling keren. Komunitas dapat memanfaatkan layanan VoIP ID untuk membangun jaringan komunikasi berbasis IP dengan nama domain sendiri, dipelihara dan diatur oleh sendiri.

Kode sumber dapat diperoleh disini:
git.ngoprek.org/antonraharja/voip-id

Update: sekarang disini https://git.ngoprek.org/telepon-rakyat/voip-id

Lisensi kode sumber VoIP ID belum ditentukan, saya pribadi memilih Affero GPLv3. Nanti kami tanyakan dulu pada yang lebih ahli mengenai hal ini.

Project management sederhana kami gunakan Trello, disini:
trello.com/b/Azj8hRww/voip-id-hosted-e164-or-id

Update: sekarang di https://trello.com/b/Azj8hRww/voip-id-teleponrakyat-id

Hasil akhirnya dapat dinikmati disini:
hosted.e164.or.id

Update: sekarang di http://teleponrakyat.id

Yang tertarik menerima orderan memperbaiki bugs dan/atau menambah fitur-fitur maka segera kontak saya via email antonrd@gmail.com untuk saya masukkan ke dalam daftar kontributor proyek.

Syarat utama, saat ini, untuk menjadi kontributor proyek VoIP ID adalah: harus menguasai PHP, MySQL, dan Laravel, serta menggunakan Linux untuk bekerja. Juga harus punya cukup waktu luang agar saat dipaksa deliver ya harus bisa deliver.

Imbalan untuk terjun dalam proyek ini, saat ini, sementara ini, hanya makan siang dan/atau makan malam gratis bersama-sama saat tim ngumpul2. Dan tentunya nama anda akan tercantum dalam daftar kontributor proyek VoIP ID.

Selamat membaca kode sumber dan saya tunggu email lamarannya :)

Thanks,

My slow slow Ubuntu 14.10

Standard

My newly updated Ubuntu seemed lagging -_-

Nothing really concerned me on my top but I knew something was wrong. So I installed iotop (used apt-get) to see what was causing lags. From iotop I knew that mediascanner-service-2.0 that was trying to scan my encrypted folder causing the IO almost always 90%++ all the time.

I’m sure there were things you can do about this, but whatever, I didn’t have time to explore them.

So, I did this:

mv /usr/bin/mediascanner-service-2.0 /usr/bin/mediascanner-service-2.0.dist
echo 'exit 0' > /usr/bin/mediascanner-service-2.0
chmod 755 /usr/bin/mediascanner-service-2.0
killall -9 mediascanner-service-2.0

That, fixed the lagging issue.

Asterisk powers IP PBX systems, VoIP gateways, conference servers and other custom solutions. It is used by small businesses, large businesses, call centers, carriers and government agencies, worldwide.
