LFS 7.1 on Ubuntu 12.04

Posted 07-21-2012 at 11:33 AM by druuna
Updated 01-31-2014 at 03:23 AM by druuna (Updated to current situation.)

I noticed that a lot of people try to build LFS using Ubuntu as host and are struggling, this article describes how to make Ubuntu compliant, create the partition and lfs user and set up the toolchain (basically chapters 1 to 5.9).

Warning: The latest stable LFS version is not 7.1.
The information below can be used as a reference for newer LFS versions. Do keep in mind that steps/actions are probably (slightly?) different in newer versions!

Inplace upgrade from RHEL 5.x to RHEL 6.x

I pressed for any document that gives steps carried out when the “upgradeall” option is selected while upgrading from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6 but got the same reply, saying in-place upgrade is not supported across major releases.
Below is the list of steps I followed to get in-place upgrade...

A technicians joke worth sharing...of course in my personal opinion

How to catch an elephant in the Africa
  • MATHEMATICIANS hunt elephants by going to Africa, throwing out everything that is not an elephant, and catching one of whatever is left.

  • EXPERIENCED MATHEMATICIANS will attempt to prove the existence of at least one unique elephant before proceeding to step 1 as a subordinate exercise.

HOWTO: Set up Modsecurity on Debian 7

Posted 06-10-2013 at 07:30 PM by Rearden888
Updated 06-10-2013 at 07:43 PM by Rearden888 (typos)

There are many places online that explain how to install and perform initial set up for modsecurity on Apache. However, I haven't found anywhere that shows how to do it with the standard Debian packages and that respects the normal apt update process. The caveat here is that like a lot of standard Debian packages, the packages included in wheezy lag upstream by a few versions. This is obviously something to consider, especially when dealing with security related software. If you're like me,...
