Additional Packages

Before 2010-08-12, we've been using apache2-mpm-worker, but that brought the system to its knees too often, leading to a un-syncable rootfs, etc. Let's see how apache2-mpm-prefork behaves.

apache2-mpm-prefork build-essential git-core gitweb ikiwiki inetutils-inetd
less libtext-csv-perl netcat nullmailer perlmagick screen texinfo

Yet more:

  • libemail-send-perl (for my sendmail vs. ikiwiki patch)

  • libsearch-xapian-perl xapian-omega (for ikiwiki's search plugin)

  • libyaml-perl (for ikiwiki's YAML field plugins)


$ find /etc/rc*/ | grep syslog | sudo xargs rm


$ mkdir hurd-web && GIT_DIR=hurd-web git init


$ mkdir tmp/backup && chmod 0733 tmp/backup


This file used to contain:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /gitweb/
Disallow: /cgi-bin/

... which I've now changed to:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

The goal is that robots rather index the official pages,, instead of the staging area on
