Remote management of Linux systems via Python and ssh

Posted 12-30-2008 at 11:47 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 02-03-2009 at 06:52 PM by rocket357 (link)

Ok, so some time back I posted on here about cleartext passwords and Python, and how to encrypt passwords for storage on your hard drive. The task that prompted that post was writing a script capable of round-robin connecting to SQL Server and PostgreSQL databases to extract information about databases, software versions, log file sizes, etc...

Today's task is to round-robin connect to Linux via ssh. Python's os.popen3 is perhaps my favored (yes, I know it's been supplanted by more...

Update to Mini 9 Odyssy

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

Well, after a pleasant holiday and a car accident on X-mass night, I am recovered enough to post a continuation of my Mini 9 observations.

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. I had one complete freeze on another test wpa2-personal 802.11g router, but I was not able to reproduce...

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.

AntiX M8.0 Public Test 1 is now available

Posted 12-29-2008 at 12:53 PM by masinick

A fast, easy to use, surprisingly solid test system called AntiX has been released for public testing.

AntiX is my favorite small, fast system. I use it when I am going to be doing primarily Web browsing because it boots so fast, I can start it up, call up my Web browser, check for Spam messages in my Email, clean out the unwanted messages, then scan my Inbox and do the same, retaining the messages I want, to be later stored in a POP3 Email client.

SimplyMEPIS 8.0 now has a Release Candidate!

Posted 12-29-2008 at 12:48 PM by masinick

SimplyMEPIS 8.0 Release Candidate 1 was quietly made available a few days before Christmas, then publicized a few days later. This software is based on Debian Lenny software, which is also in Release Candidate status. Both Debian and MEPIS represent some of the most solid, stable software that you can get on any system at any price.

I recommend this software, released or not, for anyone who wants a solid, pleasant, efficient, usable desktop system.
