I added a new wireless network card to a small pc and updated it to the current OpenSuSE Leap 42.3 Linux. I want to use this box for showing people some free software at work. They should also be able to connect their devices via wireless net to the small pc and get their hands dirty by trying out the free software and e.g. edit some files or sites.
Because the wireless network card didn’t support the master mode I need a program that fix this problem. I found the program hostap, that I could install easily. I made some changes to the hostapd.conf file, e.g. set a proper name for the SSID and activated encryption with WPA2.
I had also to configure a DHCP-server and a DNS-server (and to install the appropriate packages for this services). I also made the ssh service available through the firewall. Thus I could reach the small pc via ssh login now. Finished for today.
I used the dry wheather and went out for another run. It went better than eine days ago, but it seemed I bot a bit rusty this season. Will try a third one in some days to get the full round weithin an acceptable time slot.
I worked further on my document about foundation management. I wrote some more sections of the German regulations for foundations. I used sources in German for this reason and wrote my script in German in the first instance.
I worked through a lot of documents and judgments during the last weeks and wrote on a first chapter of an documentation about the management of a foundation. It took me a lot of my spare time but it was worth that investment. I hope that I could finish the last bits of that first chapter during the next week. I wrote the text using LaTex, an always interesting high-quality typesetting system, that is available as free software.

Meine Freizeit in den letzten Wochen habe ich häufig dazu genutzt, eine Anleitung für das Erstellen von LibreOffice Extensions (Erweiterungen) zu schreiben. Eine erste Version dieser Anleitung, die zunächst die grundsätzliche Struktur und den Bau von Extensions behandelt, die weitere Inhalte LibreOffice hinzufügen, beispielsweise weitere Vorlagen oder AutoTexte (Textbausteine). Die Anleitung wird in den nächsten Wochen um weitere Abschnitte ergänzt werden. Sie können die erste Version von meiner Homepage hier herunterladen.
