Configure closest mirror with netselect-apt in Debian


The default installation is configured to download the packages from a remote server that is sometimes saturated. The best thing is to call the closest mirror and that can be done with the netselect-apt package, which can be installed as usual:

sudo apt install -y netselect-apt

Now we invoke it with sudo netselect-apt version, where version is the version we currently have (jessie, stretch).

Notice that this solution does not support Raspbian, as it has its own mirrors and this application will not update your /etc/apt/sources.list. Although you can introduce it by hand. For Spain we could write:

# Comment the current mirror
sudo sed -i '/deb http:\/\/m/s/^/#/' /etc/apt/sources.list
# Add the Spain mirror to /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://ftp.cica.es/mirrors/Linux/raspbian/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'

I leave you the link with all the mirrors below.

News this week in the Pi World


Fate has wanted me to cross in my way geographic information systems again, to which I have dedicated much of my professional career. Today is the day that I have published an article on this subject in the issue this month on ODROID Magazine with which you can enjoy this and other topics of interest. In the meantime you download it comfortably, we'll be reviewing the best of the weekly panorama in this crazy Pi World. Here we go!

Hide the Apache web server signature


When Apache can't find a url or the user does not have permissions to see a certain page (403), add a signature at the bottom of the page with information about the installed version as you can see in the image that heads the article.

To hide it, edit the file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, execute the following and restart the daemon:

sudo sh -c 'echo "ServerSignature Off\nServerTokens Prod" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf'
sudo systemctl restart apache2

Enable SSH before first boot on Raspbian


I leave you a quick tip about Raspbian I read in the official forum:

It is possible to activate the SSH daemon creating an empty file in /boot called ssh after burning the operating system. Now when you start your distro for the first time, SSH will be activated and the file will be deleted automatically.

News this week in the Pi World


This today seems a Youtube special edition. I found many interesting videos after throwing several thousand on retro-emulation (Is RPi useful for something else, Youtubers?). Otherwise, everything is calm and serene. Come in but don't make noise...
