This should be interesting to try on my Android Samsung Galaxy S3. http://blog.al-aqel.com/android/guides/google-wallet-on-unsupported-devices/
Do you use a hosting provider that has a different timezone than you do? You can change the appearance of the timezone easily, without root access, or playing around with dates and times.
You can use the tzselect command. It will ask you for your Continent, your State/Province, and will output the command you need to modify your timezone.
I live in Brisbane, Australia, so my timezone is Australia/Brisbane. All I needed to do what append one line to my .bash_profile
echo “export TZ=Australia/Brisbane” >> .bash_profile
Now date returns the correct date and time, and all my files have local timestamps.
We can now setup Public Key Authentication and Use SSH to connect from ESXi to another (Linux) computer system using openSSHD (SSH Daemon).
cat ~/.ssh/id.dsa.pub | ssh root@esxi ‘cat - >> /etc/ssh/keys-root/authorized_keys’
The largest file size on a DVD is 4294967295 bytes. You can use this with GNU split, for example:
split --bytes 4294967295 file file_suffix_
If you have every experienced the difficulty in not being able to read your log files, either because the hard drives have crashed, or the OS cannot be started, or your machine has been compromised, you may benefit from logging to a remote server. Continue reading
Manipulating partition tables on MS-DOS labelled hard disk (the most common type as of this writing) is an extemely important skill to have as a System Administrator. If one or more partitions gets deleted or modified in an unintentional way, it is imperative that one know how to restore or modify the partitions to rectify the problem.
I tried installing and configuring BOINC on openSUSE but found some struggles along the way. I think I’ve got it set up and working, although we won’t see any evidence of problems until it has been running for several days.
pax, which means peace in Latin, combines the best of both cpio and tar, which are found in nearly all modern GNU/Linux distributions. However, it appears as though it hasn’t been updated in several years!
- can use ‘find’ to get list of files, which is then piped through to pax (cpio style)
- can read and write many archive formats, including ustar (default), cpio, and many others
- can do copy-pass mode (copy entire directory tree to another location)
- can do gzip compression on the fly (tar style)
man pax will show you more example
On April 21, 2010, beginning at approximately 14:00 UTC, millions of computers worldwide running Windows XP Service Pack 3 were affected by an erroneous virus definition file update by McAfee, resulting in the removal of a Windows system file (svchost.exe) on those machines, causing machines to lose network access and, in some cases, enter a reboot loop. Mcafee rectified this by removing and replacing the faulty DAT file, version 5958, with an emergency DAT file, version 5959 and has posted a fix for the affected machines in their consumer knowledge base. The University of Michigan’s medical school reported that 8,000 of its 25,000 computers crashed. Police in Lexington, Ky., resorted to hand-writing reports and turned off their patrol car terminals as a precaution. Some jails canceled visitation, and Rhode Island hospitals turned away non-trauma patients at emergency rooms and postponed some elective surgeries. Australian supermarket behemoth Coles reported that 10 percent (1,100) of its point-of-sales terminals were affected and was forced to shut down stores in both western and southern parts of the country.
I deleted all instances of ‘amarok’ in
$HOME/.kde4/share, and dropped the ‘amarokdb’ database, and dropped ‘amarokuser’, and re-created everything, but it still wouldn’t connect.
It turns out the solution is simple. Just change the password in the Amarok settings page from ‘password’ to something else (e.g. ‘password123’). Change the ‘amarokuser’ password, too, in mysql. Restart Amarok, and they can connect.
This is a bug in Amarok, as it doesn’t have a default password configured, one must be explicitly set. Source
