Uh Oh, Odoo Community Forum Not so Open?
by Hawke Robinson published May 31, 2020 last modified May 31, 2020 11:06 AM — filed under: , , ,
I recently posted an Odoo community forum question asking about any options exporting from a newer version (Odoo 13), backwards to an older edition (Odoo 12). They instead tagged it as "not a question" and now it doesn't appear to show up on the community site even when searching for it. This is very dishonest, not open, and worrisome that they have a policy of covering up such questions. That worries me...
OpenSuse LEAP 42.2 Worst Version of Suse Yet! (on Asus ROG)
by Hawke Robinson published Dec 09, 2016 last modified Feb 01, 2017 01:56 PM — filed under: , , ,
From a stability perspective, this has been the worst OpenSuse Release in years! I reached a point I needed to clean up some clutter on my primary laptop (running OpenSuse 13.2), so I backed up, and wiped (while retaining the windows partitions for the few video games I play with my kids), and installed OpenSuse LEAP 42.2. Here is how it went...
Trying to get Plone working on OpenBSD (part deux) - SUCCESS! (update: well, mostly)
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 16, 2017 last modified Mar 14, 2018 09:55 AM — filed under: , , , , ,
Years ago I fought with trying to get Plone to work on OpenBSD, to no avail. Recently I was able to get Plone 4.3 working on OpenBSD 6.0, but not Plone 5.0.6.. I was finally able to get Plone 5.0.7 Unified Installer working on OpenBSD 6.1!
Heartbroken about what Plone has become :-(

I have been involved with tech since the late 1970s when I first started programming. Fast-forward to the web, and content management systems and web applications, platforms, products, frameworks, etc. Plone has been a stellar solution up until the version 5.x line, and since then something seems to be going more and more "wrong" with the development and community, which breaks my heart...

Q4os Linux on Dell 2 in 1 XPS
by Hawke Robinson published Dec 11, 2019 last modified Feb 20, 2020 10:54 AM — filed under: , , , , , , , ,
Since Cent OS 7 was never able to fully support my hardware, and Cent OS 8 doesn't support any of the software I need (see the previous postings), I had to drop CentOS from laptop use. After some research I'm trying out Q4os to see if it can address both the hardware and software requirements. Here are notes on the process...
Cent OS 8 Linux on Dell XPS 2-in-1
by Hawke Robinson published Dec 09, 2019 last modified Dec 09, 2019 10:09 PM — filed under: , , , , , , , , ,
Recently "upgraded" from Cent OS 7 on my Dell XPS 2 in 1 to Cent OS 8. This has a slew of challenges and differences from similar efforts with other distros. This page will be a capture of my notes.
Open Source, like Plone, becoming too mercenary?
by Hawke Robinson published Oct 25, 2018 — filed under: ,
It seems in recent years a number of the "open source" communities have become exponentially mercenary, scaling down the core of products to try to force paid development or add ons. Plone is just one of many examples of this unfortunate trend in the open source community (which I have been a part of since the 1980s)...

Discord With Discourse
by Hawke Robinson published Nov 17, 2016 last modified Dec 02, 2016 02:04 PM — filed under: , , , ,
The people at Discourse.org should be embarrassed, if not downright ashamed, with their product and founder. Do not use the Discourse forum product or services. I can now recommend people instead consider using NodeBB, NOT Discourse.
