By default in most newer Windows installs, you will not be able to download files from "Internet" sites and you'll get this error "Your security settings do not allow for this file to be downloaded."
Solution to Enable Downloads in IE Internet Explorer
1.) Go to Settings (button) -> Internet options -> Security (tab)
2.) Click "Internet" and then the "Custom Level" button.
3.) Find the following section and set D........
If you get this error in your logs:
add bridge failed: Package not installed
This error normally means one of two things.
1.) Is your brctl (bridge-utils) installed?
On Mint/Debian check for "brctl". If it's not there do
sudo apt install bridge-utils uml-utilities
2.) Is your bridge.ko (bridge kernel module loaded?).
On some installs I have seen that you cannot modpro........
This seems to have changed for RHEL 8 where a normal dracut to update your initramfs creates a system that only boots for the running kernel. For example if you have Kernel 5 and then chroot into a RHEL 8 variant which uses kernel 4.18, and run dracut, it seems that by default the system will be unbootable.
It is also the case that if you move your RAID array or drives to another server that it will be unbootable, because dracut seems to only include modules needed for the curre........
This article about migrating to a CentOS 7 /8 RAID mdadm array has a lot of info but I wanted to focus specifically on what newer versions of CentOS 7 require to boot mdadm and what changes are necessary on CentOS 7.8+
CentOS 7 / 8 mdadm RAID booting requirements
This assumes you are chrooting into an existing install or using it to get a new deployment ready. However, these steps can........
The Best Docker Tutorial for Beginners
We quickly explain the basic Docker concepts and show you how to do the most common tasks from starting your first container, to making custom images, a Docker Swarm Cluster Tutorial, docker compose and Docker buildfiles.........
A lot of newer installs will automatically prohibit the root user from logging in directly, for security reasons or they will only allow key based access.
If you know what you are doing/don't care about security or have an incredibly secure password for testing, then you can enable it.
Edit this file: /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Find the following line: PermitRootLogin
Set it like this:
This is sure simple if you follow the guide but it took a lot of hacking around to make this work on Debian/Ubuntu!
Now before you ask why bother running wine and python, the reason is because Python executables are NOT cross-platform. If you run pyinstaller in Linux, that binary will only run on Linux and the same if you do it in Windows. So it is preferable if you have a single environment that you can create Linux and Windows binaries from rather than running 2 separate........
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........
You may have noticed if you are running QEMU/KVMmanually that in Windows the the position of the physical mouse does not match where the mouse is positioned within Windows.
There is an easy command to pass to qemu-kvm or qemu-system (whatever you call your binary):
The above flag will fix your mouse pointing problems whether you are running Windows 95, 98, NT, XP 2000, 2003, Vista, 7, 8 10 or Server 2000, 2003, 2008, 2012, 2016 or 2........
This is not the normal "black screen"issue and I was shocked to eventually find out why. The normal advice of reconfiguring Xorg didn't work. Even booting into "Recovery Mode" did not help.
Here is the short end of the stick that fixed it:
sudo apt-get install mdm mate-desktop-environment
Yes you got it right, mdm and the mate-desktop-environment / gnome were somehow uninstalled. This must be whe........
This is important as unfortunately Centos may designate a package obsolete and the replacement breaks everything (eg. you have a config file and the new replacement is not at all compatible with it and it breaks your application).
This is where disabling obsoletes comes into play, it can be done from yum but it doesn't work at the time I find.
yum --setopt=obsoletes=0 install someapp However Ifind it still installs the new app and not the one you ask for........
Done on Centos 7.3 very important as clearly based on older guides it was a lot easier and more simpler! Hint do not use grub2-install!
If you have trouble booting after this check this CentOS mdadm RAID booting/fixing guide.
One huge caveat if you are an oldschool user or sysadmin who has avoided UEFIbooting

This seems to mainly affect new installs of Windows and especially on XP randomly.
There are whole pages dedicated to the subject but none of them have a simple proper solution.
They and Microsoft say to use "Microsoft Fix It", the only problem is it requires .NET and many new installs of Windows don't have it by default.
The simple solution you asked for
Just reboot Windows and that is how Ifixed it.........
On some CPanel installs we see complaints of "/usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller" causing 100% cpu usage without any solution.
Killing the process causes it to spawn again, actually it seems it tends to spawn multiple processes itself.
Restarting CPanel itself is a temporary but not permanent solution.........
This is something I often setup for clients because it's very helpful for people in datacenters, this allows custom OS installs on demand, you can customize it more by using kickstart etc.. but here's a base I use before customizing more:
This little script below will install everything you need to get booting by PXE Linux.
It also assumes you set a local IP (be sure not to overwrite your existing IP) on eth0:0 (note the :0) as 192.168.1.10 and it........

had trouble trying to revert Ubuntu 10.04 LTS from grub2, won't boot mdraid and did not even install mdadm during the installation!
I have tried moving back to GRUB 0.97
backed up original /boot and then copied /boot from an old Debian install. Modified device.map and menu.lst and put the appropriate kernels and initrd for Ubuntu back in /boot
I ran grub:

This function and others may not work with the stock PHPinstall on Centos/CPanel: Fatal error: Call to > undefined function imagecreatefromjpeg()
Even with libjpeg-devel installed it won't work because PHP was not compiled with jpeg support, so we have to do the dirty work ourselves :)
Here is the command/yum's I did to install missing libraries for PHP that configure will complain about (yes it is a one by one process).

Need identd for port 113 ? Install authdyum install authd
Happy identing :)Actually it's not that simple.
It installs as an "xinetd" service and is disabled and turned off by deafult.
To enable it run:
chkconfig --level 3 auth on
service xinetd restart
This will set identd aka authd to start by default.
service xinetd resta........
