C.J. Collier: Instructions for installing Proxmox onto the Qotom device

These instructions are for qotom devices Q515P and Q1075GE. You can order one from Amazon or directly from Cherry Ni <>. Instructions are for those coming from Windows. Prerequisites: To find your windows network details, run the following command at the command prompt:
netsh interface ip show addresses
Here s my output:
PS C:\Users\cjcol> netsh interface ip show addresses "Wi-Fi"
Configuration for interface "Wi-Fi"
    DHCP enabled:                         Yes
    IP Address:                 
    Subnet Prefix:               (mask
    Default Gateway:            
    Gateway Metric:                       0
    InterfaceMetric:                      50
Did you follow the instructions linked above in the prerequisites section? If not, take a moment to do so now.
Open Rufus and select the proxmox iso which you downloaded. You may be warned that Rufus will be acting as dd.
Don t forget to select the USB drive that you want to write the image to. In my example, the device is creatively called NO_LABEL .
You may be warned that re-imaging the USB disk will result in the previous data on the USB disk being lost.
Once the process is complete, the application will indicate that it is complete.
You should now have a USB disk with the Proxmox installer image on it. Place the USB disk into one of the blue, USB-3.0, USB-A slots on the Qotom device so that the system can read the installer image from it at full speed. The Proxmox installer requires a keyboard, video and mouse. Please attach these to the device along with inserting the USB disk you just created. Press the power button on the Qotom device. Press the F11 key repeatedly until you see the AMI BIOS menu. Press F11 a couple more times. You ll be presented with a boot menu. One of the options will launch the Proxmox installer. By trial and error, I found that the correct boot menu option was UEFI OS Once you select the correct option, you will be presented with a menu that looks like this. Select the default option and install. During the install, you will be presented with an option of the block device to install to. I think there s only a single block device in this celeron, but if there are more than one, I prefer the smaller one for the ProxMox OS. I also make a point to limit the size of the root filesystem to 16G. I think it will take up the entire volume group if you don t set a limit. Okay, I ll do another install and select the correct filesystem. If you read this far and want me to add some more screenshots and better instructions, leave a comment.

Hideki Yamane: openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 in Tokyo

This weekend large typhoon is approaching to Japan, however, I went to UEC (The University of Electro-Communications, ) to give a talk in openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 in Tokyo.

"... hey, wait. openSUSE? Are you using openSUSE?"

Honestly no, I'm not. My talk was "openSUSE tools on Debian" - the only one session about Debian in that conference :)

Photo by Youngbin Han (Ubuntu Korea Loco), thanks!

We Debian distribute some tools from openSUSE - OBS (Open Build Service), Snapper and I'm now working on openQA. So, it is a good chance to contact to upstream (=openSUSE) people, and I got some hints from them, thanks!

Laura Arjona Reina: More involved in the Debian Publicity team

More than 6months since I am Debian Developer and I m learning new things every day and trying to organize my time better to accomplish all the things I would like to do.
In September I became publicity delegate (and we joined Press+Publicity into the Publicity team). We continued discussing how the team works, and hopefully revitalizing it.
I became more active in the IRC channel, installed quassel in my home server and then I could read all the backlog too.
I ve tried to contribute more to Debian Project News (less than I d like), to and to the social networks ( and GNU Social).
Since November I ve been failing to call for meeting but finally on 2016/02/29 we had it. I hope to resume semi-regular meetings each 1-2 months.
At the beginning of the year I helped to handle all the news and announcements about the loss of Ian Murdock. It has been hard work but I feel that I could turn some of the sadness into something useful for others. There is still work to be done: parse the condolence emails and setup a website to publish them.
About, DPN and announcements, I ve learned how to perform the parts of the work that require membership permissions (building the blog, actually publishing the announcement, sending the DPN/announcement mail to the corresponding lists). Not without mistakes, but I guess no matter how much you care, sometimes things happen, and then you learn and then things get better and you too.
Some things I discovered Some clarifications
  • I ve written hard word 4 times in this post (well, 5 now!) but that does not mean I don t want to do those tasks. I feel going out of my comfort zone and that s ok, needed to learn and experience. I m having a good time in Debian in the last months, as always!
  • We re 4 people delegated and more team members and contributors, so anybody could think: Publicity is well covered, let s go to do other things in Debian . It s perfectly ok if you want to do other things in Debian, but please consider combining your contributions with some minutes for the publicity team. Aiming to be the universal operating system, our community and target audience is big and diverse and we d like to show that diversity to the world. The more we are, the merrier!
