Dell Latitude D620

Posted 04-13-2016 at 09:59 PM by shsmith

Hey all,
I got the power supply for the Latitude on Saturday. Nice that it was early, but they didn't send me the one I ordered. However, the one they sent does work, so I'm not gonna complain. The bios does not recognize that a battery is installed, so I guess that is next on the list to purchase. I also want to eventually up the ram to 4GB and get a 1TB hard drive for it. Currently it has 1GB of ram and a 60GB hard drive. I went ahead and put Fedora 23 on it, and it seems to be running...

I have made yet another version of SlackEX. It has the latest kernel (4.5.1, released 160412) and the latest KDE (4.14.18) Desktop Environment.

New way to install OracleASM packages from Oracle for RHEL systems

Posted 04-13-2016 at 11:00 AM by JockVSJock

Recently a new kernel has come down for a number of RHEL5 systems where I run Oracle on. Also installed is OracleASM (Automated Storage Management), which is a data volume manager for Oracle databases

In the past, when upgrading a kernel, had to also upgrade OracleASM version to match the newer kernel. I would just go to the Oracle website, browser for the OracleASM version that matches the new kernel, download it, install and test.

Now Oracle has changed the method...

[WORK-AROUND] Bug on dragging windows of KDE/QT apps under openbox

If you accidentally (or not) click/hold and drag the left mouse button from the inner area ("client" or "any empty area") in a KDE/QT window, it starts to be dragged/moved along, but it's not dropped when you release the button, unlike the behavior with GTK windows (at least GTK2, I guess). You got to press "enter" or "esc", I guess.

Presumably that doesn't happen under KDE proper/kwin, maybe not even with other window managers, but I didn't...

I have ESP

Posted 04-10-2016 at 10:47 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Customer calls in, stating he can't get BGP to come up across an IPSec link from a VyOS instance to another region. He explains that this is his first time messing with BGP, and that the session won't establish. We review his configuration, and for a first-timer, I'm really impressed with his understanding of BGP. Clearly this guy has done his homework, as everything, including odd little quirks of BGP, are all accounted for.

"Well, let's sledgehammer the problem. Ping the...
