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.

My Network

Posted 04-06-2016 at 02:09 PM by shsmith

For those of you who may be interested, my home network consists of a desktop running Ubuntu 14.04LTS, a dell Inspiron E1505 running Linux Mint 17.3 with Cinnamon and XFCE desktops, and a Sony Vaio laptop running windows 7. The Latitude will be added once I get the power supply and figure out what to put on it. For once, the windows was the easiest to configure; I'm catching hell trying to get the Linuxes to play nice and see and work with each other.
