DNS server implementation tip

Posted 04-18-2015 at 07:04 AM by Upendra Pratap Singh

This blog is meant for those who wish to install DNS server on their system.

Whenever you make any changes to the configuration files - named.conf, named.conf.local or named.conf.options and restart the service bind9, do check the entries in the resolv.conf file.

This file is found in the /etc/ directory and this file takes the previous configuration IP addresses despite the bind9 service being restarted.

I faced this problem and currently I am finding...

I have made two new versions of ExTiX 15.2. I call them ExTiX 15.2 LXQt Live DVD respectively ExTiX 15.2 KDE Live DVD

ExTiX Linux Live DVD’s 64 bit are based on Debian Jessie/Ubuntu 15.04. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed LXQt 0.9.0 (in ExTiX 15.2, build 150417) and KDE 4.14.6 together with KDE Frameworks 5.9.0 in an extra version also of 150417.

Experiences with KVM switches

Posted 04-17-2015 at 11:16 AM by flshope

I have four computers at the moment sharing one keyboard, video, and mouse using a KVM switch ("KVM"= Keyboard Video Mouse). As my machine count has grown over the years, I have acquired new switches to accommodate additional machines and new port requirements (PS2 vs USB).

My current KVM switch is an IOGEAR GCS1724 4-port box-type. Of the five KVM switches I have used since 2003, my current IOGEAR GCS1724 is by far the one I would recommend (depending on machine requirements)....

Run Android-x86 from a USB stick with persistence!

Posted 04-16-2015 at 03:40 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Yesterday I discovered that "my" Android-x86 systems can be installed to a USB stick with persistence. I.e. all system changes are saved directly on the stick.

What is it good for?
Well, you dont have to touch your hard drive. Installing Android-x86 this way wont effect your ordinary boot loader. And as I say above: All system changes are persistent!

Went out to get my lawnmower that I leave outside but usually behind a 6 foot metal fence surrounding my whole property. But I slipped up and left it outside the fence for one night. Low and behold. I grab it not really paying attention and roll it back into the fenced area.

When I go to start it later on. I then notice that my throttle linkage and other parts have been stripped of the mower.

Instead of going into a rage. Which is easy for me and usually the 1st response....
