Solution to Launchpad GPG keys

The script created by a user of ubuntuforums "blackgr" that allows to automatically add GPG keys Launchpad, was salvation for many of us, saving us trouble of doing this manually.

Then I think command "add-apt-repository", can add repository and public key with a single command, but if Ubuntu keyserver is out of key is not added.

To solve this problem in webupd8 have created a package (launchpad-getkeys) that can be installed through repository.

Repository and add public key webupd8

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 (Karmic o superior)

For earlier versions add repository manually. Substitute "YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE" for your version of Ubuntu.


Add public key

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 4C9D234C

Update and install

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo aptitude install launchpad-getkeys

Finally we update entire system.

$ sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

Solved problem with GPG keys. Great for distributions based on Ubuntu.

Madriva for Sale

At time proclaimed ratification of 3G modems type Huwawei (E156 and E160), and ZTE (MF626 and MF100), an article was published on its website tells us that mandriva initiated discussions for resale.

Since 2008 and the financial position of mandriva disturbing. The physical condition of company worsened in 2010. The company aims (since March) to rely on € 200000 of cash for settlement of financial burdens, and provide a plan for continued payment of wages.

The transition state is currently facing mandriva led to consider establishment of a system to maintain level of participation of core developers for mandriva to ensure success of current negotiations that would ensure continuity of group as a result. In other words, re-sale of company is - it seems - only alternative to closure. It is still too soon to know results, particularly for staff, who number almost 80, and users who are estimated to number about 3 million around world.

Excerpts from minutes of Board of Directors on March 24 indicates that company LightApp renewed desire to get mandriva. LightApp development company based in London hosted development of information solutions (or Distance) via Internet to re-use old equipment or cheap, or even as a cheap TV enables customers to connect to Internet and broadband.

France Foundation has a weight in this sector, a group also interested in buying Linagora mandriva. Linagora representatives claiming that they had begun negotiations with mandriva. Group Chief Executive Linagora, Alexander Zapolsky, also pointed out that discussions were under way to study buying part of company's assets.

I hope that end of what happens to mandriva good, since it has been and remains one of most beautiful and most distributions, ease of use.

Gameforge AG went bankrupt in October 2007, and closed game, and then re-opened without any announcement of new operator. Announced new operator (Winch Gate) and news of resumption of accounts payable in May 2009, which was published later engine is licensed under GPL, and today completed actions to launch game and publication of its specifications source client-side and server-side licensed under the GNU AGPL, and graphics licensed under CC-BY- SA.
