Creating website and blogging in Org mode

Published on 17/07/2021 by Marek Felšöci

I discovered the power of Org mode after joining Inria (see Home) to work on my Ph.D. thesis which is also entirely written in Org mode. Indeed, one can easily export an Org mode document to an HTML page or a PDF document typeset in LaTeX. Recently, I committed myself to overhaul my personal website and decided to produce it using Org. So, in this post, I detail the whole process step by step.

Using AddressSanitizer (ASan) in a CMake project

Published on 17/07/2021 by Marek Felšöci

AddressSanitizer (ASan) is a memory error detector for the C and C++ languages. It has been included in compilers such as GCC and Clang for quite some time now.

This is what this post is about.

Installing Python modules on Guix

Published on 17/07/2021 by Marek Felšöci

On GNU Guix, software binaries are stored under /gnu/store/ which is a read-only file system. Therefore, when installing a Python module, such as gcvb, simply invoking pip install does not work as it can not access the Python directories in /gnu/store/ for writing. In this post, I tackle all the issues faced during the installation of the gcvb benchmarking module but, it may help you install other Python modules as well.

GNU Guix is an open-source Linux distribution and the Linux kernel version it uses does not allow to load proprietary firmware by default. Although, it is possible. In this post, I explain how to get work proprietary firmware on Guix.
