alias cmdhelp=/usr/lib/command-not-found
So if it's just a typo there's no annoying mini-hang.

The alias is just in case you'd rather use for a command you thought you had installed. Sometimes the commands are under somewhat obscure package names, so it can...

2 != 3, even for very large values of 2

Posted 04-04-2016 at 06:00 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Spent the past 20 minutes troubleshooting an OpenVPN issue.

Problem: OpenVPN client connects, pulls an IPv4 address, but does not get route information. Manually added routes don't allow ping.

Solution: tap devices cannot talk to tun devices, at least not directly/natively. tap devices are layer 2. tun devices are layer 3. 2, no matter how close it gets to 3, is simply not 3. (ARP tries hard to prove otherwise, but as there is no such thing as a L3 header in...

RaspEX Build 160402: Now with Kodi (XBMC) Media Center, Bluetooth, Samba, SSH and VNC4Server

Posted 04-02-2016 at 04:25 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 160402 ABOUT RaspEX
I discovered to my horror that Build 160331 of RaspEX for Raspberry Pi 3/2 didnít have support for YouTube in Kodi Media Center. Many Add-ons (extensions) in Kodi are dependent on the YouTube Add-on. I therefore (of course) had to correct this error and upload a new version (160402) of RaspEX. While I was at it I took the opportunity to install some additional popular Music, Video and Picture Add-ons.
