Found someone, you have, I would say, hmmm?

I was looking for a manager to handle a particular issue earlier, and I reached out to him on internal chat to get assistance. He wasn't available. In frustration, I mumbled "That manager is our only hope."

Across from my cubicle I heard someone pipe back in a distinctly Yoda-like voice "No. There is another..." and continued with instructions on locating the hunt group for that team, all while maintaining the Yoda voice.

I love this place.

SysAdmin "Lack-of-Judgement" Day

Updated Yesterday at 12:19 PM by rocket357

I have a beaglebone black. It was running OpenBSD 5.5. I felt the urge to upgrade last night, so I set off on a massive fustercluck of cursing, crying, and gnashing of teeth (whatever that means). Oh, and the curse of U-boot bites. Hard.

First, you aren't **EVER** supposed to skip versions when you upgrade OpenBSD. If you have an OpenBSD 5.5 machine and you want to upgrade to OpenBSD-5.7, you need to upgrade to 5.6 first, then upgrade again to 5.7 (or backup everything, perform...

Red Hat 5.7

Posted Yesterday at 05:35 AM by jheengut

Last week I installed the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution for the first time and unlike Fedora it felt smoother than a breeze.

The installation GUI is polished as an Enterprise grade toolkit. The general installation procedures were trivial but when a step regarding the Red Hat Subscription Management this needed to be skipped.

There was a problem in the partition table of the windows laptop and the vmware provided had a missing lua script, so virtualbox was chosen...

ARM experiments awaiting

Posted 03-24-2015 at 03:40 PM by onebuck

Hi,

I have purchased a ODROID-C1 ARM SoC to experiment within my LAB. What I have purchased to date;
Code:
ODROID-C1 
HDMI Cable (Micro, Type D) 
5V/2A Power Supply  
16GB MicroSD UHS-1 C1 Linux (Pink Dot)
Chroma C1 Servo Board 
Heat Sink 
C1 Tinkering Kit
C1 3.2 inch Touchscreen Display Shield
Nice little board with loads of peripheral devices available to expand. I have several Raspberry Pi boards but the C1 is a better ARM device with more cores...

My third build of Android-x86 KitKat with kernel 3.18.8-exton-android-x86: v.150321

Posted 03-24-2015 at 01:03 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Android-x86 system (KitKat 4.4.4). Build 150321.

Kernel
Kernel 3.18.8-exton-android-x86 is used.

Installing new apps
Aptoide App Manager is pre-installed (among many other apps) so you can just go ahead and make your choices. Aptoide works even better than Google Play Store, which is used as App Manager in my first version of Android-x86 KitKat from 150301.

Other important pre-installed apps in version 150321...
