This is the way I did it, and hopefully should work for you as well.

Open terminal and login as root [or if you'd prefer, use sudo in every step.]

 # cd /usr/src

    # wget ‘′

    # tar xvfj linux-2.6.31.tar.bz2
After it’s extracted remove the previous symlink.

 # rm -rf linux

    # ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.31 /usr/src/linux

A project worth watching!

Posted 09-15-2009 at 10:05 PM by rich_c

While browsing some tech news sites, I happened upon a link to this project aiming to create an alernative to large manufacturers' nettop and netbook machines. Some of which are, frankly, a bit lacking in the fulfilling their potential department... I took them up on their invitation to complete a survey and indicated that I would be willing to help promote the project. So, here I am promoting! Have a look!

I posted a while back about a dirt cheap system I put together from a...

Oh, the Printing Thing...

Well, turns out I have to "install the printer" to at least one of the Mepis computers each and every morning...or none of them can access it.

But that's better than doing the install wiz on all of them, or so I tell myself. I even whipped up a guide on how to do the install wizard, in case I need to be away from home. How crazy is that?

There must be a better way! If you know it, feel free to tell me!

As an IT professional you often run into mind boggling problems, just weird stuff which can throw you for a loop and leaving you scratching your head for days. Ask anybody who does it for a living and there will be at least one memorable horror story withing the last few months. Well I am no exception , however what I did with the erroneous hard drives was exceptionally fun ! I just found these pics laying around on an old external and figured I would share.

One of my few vices happens...

Automated MySQL backups

Posted 09-15-2009 at 12:50 PM by jkzfixme

Lately I had two SQL servers crash and thankfully have implemented a pretty good backup solution using a script called AutoMySQLBackup, which uses mysqldump to create SQL dumps of your databases. Here is the play by play so you to can get back up and running with expedience. I am assuming the use of ubuntu in this tutorial as that is what I typically use, although the only real difference here is in the sudo command. If you are using a different distro just disregard any sudo's and login as root....
