When attempting to boot most ASUS motherboards, (including most motherboards and laptop systems). the F8 key is almost always the key utilized. Reboot the system then hit F8 about once a second until you get into the boot menu. If the system boots into the OS loader, reboot and try again.
To fix issues with Windows 10 ignoring external manifest files (which control .exe window sizing, etc) with regedit, verify that the
DWORD is set to true.
If these DWORD entries don’t exist, then create them and assign them a true value.
Once complete, restart windows.
Today I decided to pull out my old Hero3, after updating it to the latest firmware I was surprised to find that the GoPro app would not connect successfully. What I found was that for whatever reason, the DHCP request from my mobile device (OPO in my case) was not received and or accepted by the camera, and no IP address was found. After some probing around I discovered that these cameras default to the 10.5.5/24 network.
So the solution was simple, in my wireless settings for the AP on the mobile device I manually configured the IP address to live on the 10.5.5/24 network by assigning it the IP address 10.5.5.2. The gateway and DNS are also assigned to 10.5.5.1 however I don’t believe this makes any difference on these devices.
So this morning I was kindly reminded again by my corporate IT overlords that my RSA soft token was going to be expiring in 9 days. Having had this token in place for a year now I had forgotten how to update it.
After a few minutes I recalled that the trick was as simple as
stoken import --file <my>.sdtid
Well that’s simple, except for the fact that in my case, this failed. After a quick bit of googling around I found that version 0.2 (which ships with my release of ubuntu) incorrectly identifies where the tokens are within the sdtid files resulting in an annoying error:
error: no valid token in file '<my>.sdtid': General failure
UGH! Well the solution is simple here. After a quick upgrade to 0.90 I’ve had no problems importing since.
Simple tip, to decode thread stack dumps from Lustre file system, which typically get dumped into /tmp, run:
lctl df <input file> <output file>
This will leave you with an ascii formatted, human readable stack trace which can be used for further debugging.
I’ve just released a new perl module based on my Ruckus::Conf module. This library allows you to implement an .INI like file parser for your perl programs. It allows for the configuration file to be simple and easy to follow, but provides advanced features such as nested configuration entries, and internal automatic macro support.
Anyways, check it out if you’re a perl hacker. It’s on CPAN
Well after a few days of usage I found some major problems which prevented me from adopting Kubuntu 15.10 with the lovely Plasma 5 setup.
- Auto mount of NFS shares is broken again
- Desktop backgrounds are locked to a single background image
- Auto mount of random key encrypted swap is broken
- After a day or so of uptime, Plasma 5 starts to bog down
- A lot of the plasma widgets are a step backwards, they’re ugly, or poorly laid out vs the older Plasma 4 widgets
I’m hoping that these issues get resolved, as Plasma 5 and the new layouts and themes were a whole lot prettier than Plasma 4, however since I can’t use it everyday successfully and without aggravation I decided to restore my backup.
I’ve always wondered if the SSSD project could be leveraged to provide slightly faster stat() resolution.
It’s worth testing and hopefully I have some time to investigating further.
