Ubuntu 22.04 was just released, I managed to upgrade my WordPress site (running on VM and only publish static site), it was not as smooth as I thought, there were quite some small problems here and there, but eventually it worked after like 4 hours of troubleshooting, and so on.

As a side note, I no longer running Parallels since I found it tricked me to subscription which involves $79.99 per year, luckily I noticed the weird charge on my credit card so was able to cancel it the same day. I’m running my VM on UTM now, I didn’t notice performance difference between UTM and Parallels, though Parallels does provide more convenient features like desktop integration, snapshot, etc.

I think I’ve been running Ubuntu since 10.04, but I’m seriously thinking of moving away from it now due to snap, there are more and more applications over Ubuntu dropped deb support and are solely on snap only, I don’t mind a distro changes its package management tool like yum to dnf, but I just don’t want to have 2 package management mechanism at the same time.

I may not run Fedora as I need LTS, I cannot choose Rocky as it (actually RHEL) lacks of aarch64 support. Most likely I’m going to play with Debian or Arch.

Finally I found this Debian Binary Package Building HOWTO.

Actually I’ve been searching online for sometime, however, most search results lead me to Ubuntu or Debian Wiki which are totally useless, thinking of they are using lots of (and different) tools plus need user interact with it.

On the other hand, the how-to page mentioned above did a clear step-by-step turtorial, without any fancy tools. Surely you still need dpkg package and lintian.

I’m also learning how to write a good how-to like this one, it seems learn by sample is always easier.

I guess now I understand why I don’t want to go to school again.
