Reinstall Nvidia driver after kernel update in ubuntu

When the kernel gets updated by ubuntu, the NVIDIA drivers aren't working anymore because the nvidia kernel module isn't build for that specific kernel.

To solve this:

open a terminal
become su

> sudo su

Check which sources of nvidia are available

> ls /usr/src

You will see the kernel sources and nvidia sources

RHEL local DVD Repo

Posted 04-23-2013 at 04:37 AM by druuna
Updated 05-16-2013 at 04:52 AM by druuna (added rhel subscription link)
Tags dvd, repo, rhel

This article describes how to make a local repository from a RHEL installation DVD.

First and foremost:
Warning: RHEL is not a free product.

To get access to the fully up-to-date repositories (RHN) a paid subscription is needed.

Without this subscription it will not be possible to get security updates and the newest versions of packages.

An alternative for using RHEL would be CentOS or Scientific Linux. Both are free and almost identical

Time Warner IPv6 pains

Posted 04-23-2013 at 02:17 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I asked TWC about ipv6 a while back, and the tech I got on the phone was as clueless as they come. Oddly, I could see router advertisements with link-local address (modem playing games, or so I thought), so I fired up rtsol and cried as it failed repeatedly.

A bit later, I noticed that with the kids competing for bandwidth and my wife gaming, we were starting to saturate the 20 Mbps we were getting. I call TWC and upgrade to the 50 Mbps package.

Then something peculiar...

Blocking lists of IP addresses using the iptables recent module or ipset and make fail2ban use it.

To combat the common misconception that filling Netfilters filter table INPUT chain is still a valid choice, to show ease of use and for future reference I'll outline how to mass block IP(v4) addresses and how to integrate this in fail2ban.

*This web log post will not explain the fine print on ipset and iptables' {ipt,xt}_recent ('iptables -m recent --help'), nor will it tell you how to install anything, help you configure fail2ban, go into SysV vs BSD init scripts or application...

How does it sound?

Posted 04-20-2013 at 07:01 AM by mintyninja41 (The Groovy Blog of MintyNinja41)

I have decided to try my hand at writing short stories, and I'd love it if you could maybe offer some input, ie what you like, what you think should be improved. Anyway, enough yammering. Here's my story, part 1!

It was truly a sight to behold. An indigo sky, bejeweled with sparkling gems that twinkled lovingly as they danced across the sky. And under this masterpiece of the heavens, in the suburbs of Seattle, was a girl who was going through hell.
Her name was Selena.
