Second day of summer

Posted 06-22-2015 at 04:42 PM by onebuck

Well we are having some wet weather here in central Illinois. We are under a Tornado watch until 23:00 with expectations of severe weather throughout the night. I have been through my share of tornado and respect them very much. Preparedness is important!
Sun is shining now but the radar shows the storm traffic/path and we will be hit by some bad storms. I am tired of all the rain. We are at 11.5 inches and this is the last week in June. More than we need.

I cannot get caught...

A very informative and positive test report re. my KitKat 4.4.4 build 6

One member on andex.exton.net wrote this today about my KitKat 4.4.4 build 6 of 150606.

I've been testing the 4.4.4 Kitkat version 6 on my Asus Vivobook with Intel HD Graphics and touchscreen. The touchscreen works perfectly and supports multitouch. Finally a build that works great with with games. I played Clash of Clans with no hassle. I ran most of the graphics benchmark apps available.

I had a persistent "Unfortunately, your app has stopped" error problem

Interface reverts to different zone in firewalld RHEL7 (SOLVED)

Posted 06-16-2015 at 02:47 PM by MensaWater

We recently setup a couple of new DMZ servers so decided to use zones "internal" and "external" rather than zone "public" (which RHEL7 uses by default). We also set "internal" as the "default" in firewalld.

We used firewall-cmd to assign our em1 interface (this is first embedded NIC, on some systems this might still be eth0 instead) to the external zone. We then assigned em2 (second embedded NIC, this might be eth1 instead)...

Ugly wrap-around to avoid high CPU and I/O on update-apt-xapian-index

Posted 06-16-2015 at 02:54 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I've read somewhere that someone else was also annoyed by this.

Here's what I did:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
cpulimit -l 5 -e updatep-apt-xapian-index.py & 

ionice -c 3 /usr/sbin/update-apt-xapian-index.py $@
That's my "/usr/sbin/update-apt-xapian-index", which is called by synaptic and whatever else. The ".py" file is the original script.

It still makes the CPU fan audibly accelerate, but it's no longer...

Rough script that waits until processes finish their businesses, then exit

Posted 06-15-2015 at 04:17 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

The processes are given as a single variable, thus one must use quotes if there's more than one process to wait for.

Usage example:

./waitprocs "lame avconv sox tar" && self-destruct

My previous attempt with a "counting" system didn't work, so I've tried a different approach. For any given process, it will check if it's running, if it is, it creates a temporary file with its name on a temporary work folder; if it isn't, it...
