Adventures in OpenBSD softraid

Posted 12-09-2018 at 09:55 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Hosted at one of the small-ish cloud providers I have a small VM that I recently resized. Along with a small bump in RAM (for the same price), I was able to secure a bit more storage space. Win-win, right?

I have an OpenBSD RAID volume on the server. Built within this RAID volume is a softraid crypto virtual disk. I decided to resize this crypto volume, so I've booted the server up with the ramdisk kernel. First, I resized the physical volume's layout, so a quick "fdisk...

Sometimes Openbox' own rc.xml "application" settings will work when devilspie doesn't

Posted 12-06-2018 at 10:19 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

My preferred GTK3 theme is kind of broken and will naturally create a window that's kind of crunched in itself, but it can be circumvented by determining its size. For a long while it worked with Devil's Pie, for some reason it stopped working.

The above is for OpenBSD dhcpd. For dnsmasq:

Code:
dhcp-option=252,http://10.42.0.11/wpad.pac
Or for ISC dhcpd:

Code:
