It means use the ethernet device that has a link, and if it missing you will likely be prompted. It doesn’t matter much to me anyway now that I know how to properly manage a PXE environment; but it took a while to get it stuck in my head.
Just hit command +K.
Apparently these fellas are selling a Dick Tracy style GSM watch. I would like to know a few things happen before I would buy one.
1. I would like to see it in use, not that I would be using the build in speakerphone mode much, I would probably use a headset; its just that I don’t buy gadgets that I have never seen work.
2. Is it waterproof?
3. $700 are you kidding me? I’ll give you $250.
4. isync???, does it work as a gprs modem?
5. How well does it work while in silent mode, does it even vibrate? If so would I notice it while watching a movie?
I figured out how to remotely power cycle the two poweredge 850’s I have remotely. I used dells ipmitool rpms and a little help from the internet.
1. Install the rpms
2. load the needed modules
3. configure the network, and auth as seen here
4. test xxxx
Here. This includes the oggzrip utility. Maybe later I’ll give instructions for compiling things you intend to turn into packages. If I feel like it that is; biatches.
I browsed to dacrib.net only to discover the wordpress initial install screen was being displayed. WTF? It must be the database I thought. Sure enough after running mysqlcheck against it I saw that one of the tables was marked as crashed. So I fixed it.
mysql> repair table wp_options;
| Table | Op | Msg_type | Msg_text |
| xxxx_wordpressdb.wp_options | repair | status | OK |
All better now. Maybe I should set a cron up to do that every few months. Anyway I got a dump in case everything goes to hell sometime soon.
Splunk is google for logfiles. Even the free license is all I would ever need with syslog configured properly on each server.
I am looking for an 1100 sq ft+ loft on a decent block in brooklyn. Any takers?
I had forgotten how nice apt was in relation to yum. I mean yum is great, I could never build a package manager like rpm; let alone a utility as versatile and helpful as what yum is. I may have the capacity to build something that sucks right around the level of up2date 0.6. I had managed to keep that machine running fedora for years, beginning with fedora core 2. I had never reinstalled, or performed fresh installs during that time, I just kept modifying the repos, running yum update, and fixing major issues as they came up. That machine has gone through a lot with me; but it has always been a dev machine. From my first install of Asterisk that I would later use to build Viatalk, to being my test machine while studying for the RHCE. I appreciate what the community has given me. Without open source software I wouldn’t be a system admin. I would never have found the interest. Maybe I would be a cop.
Ubuntu as a distro feels very by the people/ for the people. Things that I didn’t expect to work like playing mp3’s out of the box did with very little work on my end. I tried it for a day, and just went right back home. To fedora 9.
It seems like a quick way to diagnose system performance problems. Link.
