Finally Rootkit Hunter release 1.3.4 is here listing 4 additions, 8 changes and 9 bugfixes.

Update: remote Linux management via Python and ssh

Posted 12-30-2008 at 02:25 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 02-03-2009 at 09:16 PM by rocket357

I installed paramiko and tested out ssh.py (see the Edit on my last post). Python isn't just easy to use, it's *incredibly* easy to use...and now it's even more powerful and easy to use than before (is that possible?!?).

The problem with my last post is that you have to manually manage timing. It's a serious pain (Edit - relatively speaking, of course)...you "stdin.write("""<some long-running command>""")", and then you have to time.sleep()...

Remote management of Linux systems via Python and ssh

Update to Mini 9 Odyssy

Posted 12-30-2008 at 10:29 AM by PresGas (President Gas is President Gas again.)

Thanks to the helpful commentary of Hangdog42, I discerned that the wireless drivers that I mentioned were the same. I still completely freeze in our university environment which is 802.11g wpa2-enterprise, but am fine on my wep 802.11b router.

Educating myself 1

Posted 12-30-2008 at 04:27 AM by moonbeam5

Started reading my book from the beginning again. Got through the preface.

Started chapter 1. Reading through the GNU-LINUX CONNECTION. There was mention of the GNU Hurd. Went to the web pages mentioned. Skimmed over some of the info.
This from about 3:40 am to about now.

I will leave for work in an hour. Now I will play.
