Install Errors on Version 12:
This error happened on QEMU emulator version 2.11.1 pve-qemu-kvm_2.11.1-5
on Proxmox/Debian but installing on QEMU.12 on Centos 6 did not produce the error.
*Update it is not related to the OS or QEMU version. This happened in Centos 6 too after a second install.
What really causes this even though you successfully install........
Perhaps you've just seen this in the bash prompt:
Instead of the expected user@hostname#
It is probably because you are missing .bash_profile or .bashrc in your home directory
Check for yourself:

So say you are behind a typical NAT/LAN setup whether at home, work or while travelling. What if you have a computer or server that you need to connect to from the outside?
Yes you could use a VPN but a quick and dirty, temporary and secure way is to use SSH's Reverse Tunneling Proxy feature.
On the remote ssh server host you need the GatewayPorts option enabled in sshd_config (be........
The key thing is that you must use a "machine"id of "pc-1.3" or it will say your hardware is not supported.
Additionally you MUST use a virtio disk or you will get a ks_pre.sh error as soon as the install starts (a look at logs will show it can't find a disk). This is funny because even though the OS finds the disk and an fdisk -l shows it, it looks like the script looks for a /dev/vda device (virtio) and nothing else, so if you didn't use Virtio as you........

umask are the default permissions that are applied when a file or directory are created. To see this in action simply just "touch filename" or "mkdir somedir" and you'll see what default permissions are applied.
The first thing Ialways tell people you should know is to NEVER change the defaults unless you are making them more restrictive. But they work well and if you change the defaults you could end up creating a file without permission to read........

In Centos 7 the days of editing the "kernel"line and adding "single"are gone.

When things go wrong your video is basically unplayable or the first video plays fine and then freezes when moving on to the next. Generally if both videos weren't produced with the exact 100% same settings you will have issues. You can try the basic concat but it often won't work right.
Solution for me:
My example uses 3 videos in total so "n=3" and a=1 to include audio.

E-Mail TipI just thought I'd give you guys a good tip about e-mail. It seems a lot of people like to use a Hotmail or ISP (eg. Telus) account for their e-mail but the problem is what happens if you switch ISPs, then your e-mail address no longer works and old friends might not be able to contact you. The same thing has happened for excite.com e-mail addresses where they just shut down.
Whether you are a business owner or personal user can you afford to lose an e-mail........
CVSUp the Easy WayIf you're reading this you probably have never used CVSUp or don't know how.
CVSUp can be used for two things or just one if you prefer.
*Keeping your kernel up to date
*Keeping your port list up to date
Start by editing the following file in:
It can be quite overwhelming with all the crazy options.
Basically there are only 3........
Windows Media PlayerJust one little question... and I'm not too sure if it falls into the hardware category... my Windows Media Player...or any music program for that matter buzzes at random and cuts out the music. But I don't think it's the music files themselves because I've put in regular CD's and have had the same problems. Any ideas on what the problem could be?Sounds like a soundcard/driver issue.
I would recommend updating your soundcard driver i........
Basic Port ListingHopefully someone finds this useful or at least interesting.

This way should work on all Linux machines, at least RHEL/Debian (Ubuntu) based distros but most likely all and also should work on many Unix style machines I believe.
Many OS's have tools to update the timezone, but most of them (even if command line) require several bloated packages and even Xorg/KDE based packages etc..
Your time zone info file is actually in /etc/localtime if you open this file in vi/vim/pico you'll see it's gibberish (binary code or another encodin........
To enable Fuse to work inside a OpenVZ container it's very simple (although some people say it can't be done).
Remember that on your HN(HostNode) for OpenVZ, Fuse must be installed and the module must be loaded for this to work. In addition remember that you need the Fuse package installed inside the container of course.
vzctl set 2000 --devices c:10:229:rw --save
vzctl exec 2000 mknod /dev/fuse c 10 229
The part that most people forget........
This is pretty bad, ever since my phone has been unlocked the battery life is horrible. Many others have reported this issue on provider unlocked phones and even jail broken phones. We're talking issues as bad as losing 1% every 3 minutes which is what I seem to have observed as well.
For now I'm going to relock the phone, and hopefully a firmware update will address this issue. This is very annoying and it seems apparent this is also happening on 3G phones and that........
When trying to even cd or ls the mounted OCFS2 partition it crashes. Ithink this is a combination of VMWare Server's problem and the way I mounted and symlinked to it.
More than anything this shows the problem and lack of forsight with VMWare, but also that OCFS2 is easily crashed if you do strange things.
Output of /var/log/messages for OCFS2

There's a lot of outdated information and confusion for system administrator's out there.
One annoying task for many an Administrator has been backing up data in Linux. You don't need any GUI tools such as K3B or GnomeBaker. Both are excellent tools but for veteran command line users working remotely, using the keyboard is a great and possibly automated way to save yourself pain and hassle.
At a later date we'll cover how scripting can automatically backup certain........
