Re: bridges vlans and trunks oh my!

Bigger managed switches are more expensive and they are usually loud, and they don't run Linux of course (well most don't). I don't need 24 ports in one location, I need a few ports in several locations, and the WIFI range can be extended. For me these WRTs are the most appropriate for the job. They...

Re: bridges vlans and trunks oh my!

It depends on which router you are referring to. For whatever reason on some WRTs the internal and external ports are mapped in the same order: http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/i/WRT54_sw1_internal_architecture.png and on other WRTs they are mapped in reverse order: http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/i/WRT5...

Re: Replacing broken M/B with the same type

I have replaced motherboards in my main desktops several times and the only issue I might have run in to is the MAC address on the network card will be different and might get assigned a new eth* name. If that happens just edit the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file and comment out the o...

Re: rkhunter & promisc. broadcast on NIC

Are you running anything that would have the interface open in promiscuous mode? i.e. snort, tcpdump, wireshark, some network monitoring/statistics app?

Re: rkhunter & promisc. broadcast on NIC

I'm pretty sure it means you have rkhunter installed.

Re: Some code seemes to have distroy the script

I didn't really look at it in detail but shouldn't your "<div *" statement have a ">" at the end of it?

Re: How to manually "clean up" java mess

If you installed it via rpm all you have to do is uninstall it with rpm. I always install the RPM version.

Re: Getting by with a little php help from a friend

Man I still haven't had time to look into this so hopefully you were able to solve the issue. I have been unbelievably swamped. I still don't have time to dig into it but had time to type this. :)

Re: Read error.

Can you read the files if you copy the ISO to the hard drive and mount it on a loop device? If you can't copy the files that way then there is definitely something wrong with the ISO.

Re: Read error.

Where did the ISO come from? The ISO is corrupted if you burned it to several CDs and they all have the same problem on multiple machines. It's either that or your burner is not writing it correctly or is bad but I'm guessing the ISO is corrupted.

Re: Read error.

That usually means the drive itself is having a hard time reading the CD either because the CD is scratched or the drive is going bad.

Re: Where's the error

All examples should have a 'fi' or they are bad examples that will not work. If you properly indent you won't run into this sort of problem. For example: if xxx; then if yyy; then echo "yyy"; else echo "not yyy"; fi elif zzz; then echo "zzz"; else echo "something else entirely"; fi Every if MUST hav...

Your if structures have to be like this: if xxx; then blah blah; fi or if xxx; then blah blah; else other other; fi or if xxx; then blah blah; elif yyy; then ugh ugh; else other other; fi In one spot you incorrectly have: if xxx; then blah blah; else other other; elif yyy; then ugh ugh; fi If you ar...

Re: Uping eth0 after a black out

You could put something as simple as this in root's cron to run like every 15 minutes:

Code: Select all

if ! /bin/ping -c2 www.google.com; then /sbin/ifdown eth0; /sbin/ifup eth0; fi &> /dev/null
Basically all it does is send 2 ping packets to google and if it doesn't get a response it will down and up your eth0.

Happy IPv6 Day!

So far my youtube and images.google.com are a little sluggish because they must have turned on IPv6 which means all my videos and other google traffic are now going through my he.net tunnels.
