If you are checking back here every once in a while to look for Debian packages of HAProxy, you shouldn’t bother anymore. The Debian maintainers are currently doing a very good job at http://haproxy.debian.net/.

Just follow the instructions over there and you will be ready to go.

Heh, just after I decided to package ss-20121226, HAProxy 1.5-dev17 got released. Oh well, I just had to upgrade so I packaged it for my own usage ;-). I also updated the dependencies a bit because I am compiling with SSL and Compression enabled. Just get it at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev17/.

Here’s a new Debian package of HAProxy. Today it’s the latest and greatest snapshot of 20121226. If you are running any of my previous versions I suggest you update to this one since a lot of bug fixes went in. Just get it at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/20121226/

After some bugs were found in the dev13 release, Willy quickly released a dev14 release. You can grab the packaged version at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev14/ and test around a bit.

And right after I created the package I realized that I needed to enable compression and SSL. Please make sure you download the dev13-2 package if you want to use those features.

HAProxy 1.5-dev13 got released today. So, I’ve made another quick package which you can get at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev13/.

It has lots of new features including SSL and Compression (which I both haven’t tested) and tons of bug fixes. Great work by all developers.

After I forgot to post about HAProxy 1.5-dev9, I can now post that I’ve also packaged HAProxy 1.5-dev10. You can get it at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev10/.

If anyone is interested in getting these updates through apt-get, then drop me a line, I might set up an apt repository for easy updates.

I decided to package todays snapshot of HAProxy. It’s a binary package for amd64 but I’ve also included the source to build your own package.

It’s available at: http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/20120310/

It seems like the new HP DL360G7 servers do not support the textcons command from iLO anymore without an ‘Advanced License’ installed. Since iLO and moreover the ability of using a remote console is one of the reasons we use the HP servers I was not amused. Luckily the Virtual Serial Port (VSP) is still free of license stuff so with a little fiddling around I got it working nicely.

Of course the is lots of documentation floating around on the net, but for my own memory I also wrote it down at http://www.roedie.nl/wiki/index.php?title=Debian_GNU/Linux_iLO3_Virtual_Serial_Port so I won’t forget it and others might find it useful.

Today I’ve also released a new package of autofwd. It’s still the same version, I’ve only fixed some packaging bugs. You can get it here

Ow, and you like a new packaged version of libparanoid to go with that? Sure, I’ve backported that as well (hmz… as far as you can call it a backport…). It’s in the same dir as the autofwd package.

Have Fun!
