Hard-earned lessons

Posted 12-05-2015 at 12:58 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

If there is one thing I have never fully understood, it is bird people. They have tons of birds loose in their house, feathers and bird crap on everything...just, not a good way to go, right? Last time I visited a friend who is a bird person, I had some feathery jerk land on my head and crap on my glasses.

I'm more of a fish and reptile person. I tolerate cats and dogs (well, moreso cats than dogs). So when my wife suggested we get two parakeets to keep as pets, I wasn't thrilled....

Debugging C Programs Using GDB (Including core dumps!)

Posted 12-01-2015 at 02:32 PM by rtmistler

The added (including core dumps!) to my title is actually the main reason for me deciding to write this entry.

So very many times I see new programmers who write something, it compiles, so they run it, and then they are stumped because their programming resulted in a segment violation and possibly a core file. And now they're stuck, not knowing why this occurred and also having no real idea how to proceed.

Background - What Likely Led to This State/Situation

PuppEX (Puppy Slacko64) Live DVD with kernel 4.3.0-x86_64-puppex

Posted 11-30-2015 at 04:27 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

PuppEX Slacko 64 bit is a remaster of Puppy Linux Slacko64 6.3.0, released on November 16, 2015. Kernel 4.3.0-x86_64-puppex is used. Kernel 4.3 is the latest available stable kernel from as of 151130. PuppEX uses the original Puppy Slacko64 Desktop. I have added PCManFM and LXTerminal. They are more useful than ROX-Filer respectively RXVT, I think. The ISO file is on the whole 766 MB, which is due to me including also NVIDIA Graphics driver 352.63, Gimp, Vlc Media Player 2.2.1 installed...

Now even shinier!
It's a rude and crude script, but it works for experienced admins who knows what they are doing,
and where they are doing it.

do_work ()
    mkdir -pv "$BASEDIR"/"$DOMAIN"/
    cp -pr /var/www/wordpress/* "$BASEDIR"/"$DOMAIN"/
    cp "$BASEDIR"/"$DOMAIN"/wp-config-sample.php

We have 60 Wordpress sites to roll-out and I dislike tedious crap, so I scripted it.

echo -n "Domain? " ; read DOMAIN

if [ -d $BASEDIR/$DOMAIN ] ; then
echo "directory exists, exiting..." ; exit 1
mkdir -pv "$BASEDIR"/"$DOMAIN"
