SELinux, syslog-ng, and the like

Updated 08-05-2012 at 12:58 AM by sag47

So recently in my home setup I installed a scheme for centralized logging. I use rsyslog or syslog on the client servers and syslog-ng on the central server. This is nothing new and has been done before.

rsyslog + syslog-ng = gold.

I have a script which parses the syslog-ng logs across all the servers, filters them, and then sends and email with a summary and unusual logs. Each time I got an email I would get, on average, ~200-500 log messages of SELinux errors and...

So far had the official Debian distro loaded, config file tweaked to shrink the screen to fit my HDMI TV's and fstab file modified to mount my music and vidieo SMB shares on the server. Will back date this blog with details of the above later, very lax of me I know.

Sound ... oh joy of joys ... Linux and sound is like a shit sandwich, anyone who knows me knows I am a big Linux fan but the...

user space access to parallel port

Posted 06-17-2012 at 09:53 PM by neonsignal

When using a parallel port for a printer, typically it will be accessed through a kernel printer driver.

However, the parallel port can also be used as a multi-purpose bit port from user space. This can be done by loading the ppdev driver:
modprobe ppdev
In the past, you would also have to create the access node, but this is now scripted and will happen automatically:
mknod /dev/parport0 c 99 0 -m 660

chironfs and sshfs: "mknod failed accessing..." error

Posted 06-15-2012 at 09:26 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

I thought I'd post this for posterities sake:

chironfs is a nifty fuse-based file system that duplicates a file hierarchy across multiple paths. (Like a file system version of RAID 1.) However, I found that if I tried to use an sshfs mounted directory as one of the paths, chironfs disables the path with the error "mknod failed accessing <path> Permission denied".

The workaround I found was to pass in the following option to sshfs when mounting the sshfs...
