What my test PC will be doing next!

Posted 04-09-2011 at 04:20 PM by rich_c

I think the hard drive on my test box is dead or dying... So, I'm going to take the opportunity to get hold of a bigger (120GB as opposed to 20GB) drive for my little machine and then install the LXDE spin of openSUSE.

I really like LXDE as a lightweight environment. For me, it's unassuming and usable in a way that other lightweight desktops/window managers aren't. My first experience of Linux was a boxed set of SuSE 7.3 (I think) so it'll be nice to see what openSUSE has to offer....

After almost 2 years of trying to perfect and refine this software, it's now finally reached the first presentable and stable form. Maybe it's already the final form I'm not sure. I'm glad that I was able to finish it.

versions released: 0.1 (base) and 0X.1 (extended)

Sorry to those of you who have tried to download the file.
Will someone let me know if it works for you?

MAC Mania

Today I was having mac address problems. My corp network runs a mac filtered domain so in order to avoid the hassle of contacting IT (which are stupid) I simply copied the macs from other machines and issued them to my servers (I'm a technical head for my department). Well I didn't save the MAC address and the server was shutdown when we moved it which blew away the mac. What did I do? Search the logs for every MAC address ever.

find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -iH '\([0-9a-f]\{2\}[:-]\)\{5\}[0-9a-f]\{2\}\|[0-9a-f]\{12\}'
