Update Notification Script in Kogaion

xenno : June 28, 2016 11:31 pm : IT, Linux, Mondo Technicus, Software, Uncategorized

For a while I entered in amateur linux administration. I can not say I’m a professional because I have not yet charged anyone for administration so just because I manage my servers all by my self, to me it means that I’m at amateur level.
I learned from experience that it is helpful to know that your server needs updates, that packages updates needs to be installed, that your server has a service that stopped, such as MySQL and you have to make somehow the server to detect this and then try to restart the service and notify you that this has happened.
Many things related to a server are those that can be monitored and there are some great utilities in this regard but often I prefer to create and run my own scripts monitoring and reporting.
That is why I have developed several scripts that runs with the help of CRON and this would be my monitor in what happens to a server.
If I declare myself an amateur, I can declare specialist-amateur in servers running Debian and Ubuntu then CentOS and at investigating level other operating sistems, but recently I started, as I mentioned here, to button the Kogaion OS – testing, verification, implementation etc. ..
Personally I installed Kogaion and then people around me who liked the idea realised that they wanted Kogaion on their personal computers.
Problems arise when they want something, an application that do something additional activities or when they just want help with anything and … there is no one to intervene. It appears instinctive need to call the one who knows (in this case … the undersigned) and call to solve the problem.
Let’s say 10 such situations occur in a certain time, and probably can not even reach 2 of them and on 4 I was in my way them and on the other four we took the opportunity to drink a beer. Also difficulty grade occurs, and why not related to the degree of personal comfort of my mood at the time.
I wanted to solve some situations of this kind, REMOTE – connected from home or from anywhere else, and so I asked people to let me connect to their remote computers or to make some of them to run automatically.
So it is that … I started working.
The first situation that I dealt with was more »

Test Kogaion

xenno : April 19, 2016 8:08 pm : EN, IT, Linux, Mondo Technicus
We are looking for installers of Kogaion, last OS produced by Romanian team of developers, so … I installed one myself.
I installed Kogaion on my laptop  Dell Latitude D630.
I downloaded the image here: http://bpr.bluepink.ro/~rogentos/iso/kogaion/.
Using  RUFUS  on Windows I have “burned” a USB stick to start an installation using the downloaded ISO image.
More about the team and other issues can be found on the site http://rogentos.ro/

Start on Build 10074 – Windows 10

xenno : May 4, 2015 1:53 pm : EN, IT, Mondo Technicus, Windows

Who is in tests with Windows 10 knows that appeared a new update – Build 10074.

Start on Build 10074 Windows 10 when upgrade from the previous version, no longer works. Press the start button, “Windows” key or any key and do not function. I thought initially that ended with testing and searched if there were users who had the same problem with mine.

I found this discussion link and I amused at the peak of the resolution there. To fix the Start button to do an update for the Windows guys have fixed the problem with an update it seems to have failed to integrate in build – and you must go to Settings UpdateUpdate

The funny part is when you complain that you do not have a Start button and someone recommends you to press the Start-Settings

10121_updatehaha

Now for the curious ones, there is another way to get to Settings and that is right-click on Desktop and select Personalize:

 

Start la Build 10074 - Windows 10
Start la Build 10074 – Windows 10

Then it’s simple … is seeking the update and install – restart and ready – you have a Start Button Functional

Windows 10

xenno : April 12, 2015 12:26 am : EN, IT, Mondo Technicus, Windows

Windows 10
Windows 10

 

I always liked to write about open source and …. I always liked to test operating systems.
This means that starting with Windows Vista I took part in the testing of closed source operating system (hehe) – owner – to give a critical eye on this operating system.

As you know I like to use free software development. In this period, the Windows version came out with Windows 10 (so easy) which, it seems, it will be free. Reaching such a creative power that it allows you to create something free on your money seems absurd but unknown are the ways … and probably not difficult to predict.

To test this version of Windows you need a Microsoft account (whether it’s live, hotmail or outlook) to prove that you test this operating system. I have a tester account for some time and my account is Gmail : D .

DVD image is downloaded somewhere here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-iso

The “burn” on a DVD and then installed on a computer. We recommend testing a computer, not a production, being vulnerable sensitive data on the disk because the state is the operating system.

After installation follow updates and upgrades. Many “bugs”, especially after upgrading to version 10041, which wants the latest version. After this upgrade “dies” application “Mail, Calendar, and People” only marks.

What I like to repair is that it appeals to the console 😀 . Open a powershell (or administrator account “run as administrator”) and enter this command:

Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*windowscommunicationsapps*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online

Once entered this command you can go to “Store” (Store) to download and install the application again. Until you run the above command, you get all sorts of errors related to this application.

Note:

To fix the problem appeared with “Mail, Calendar, and People” run the above command in PowerShell in Windows Run as administrator : D

Other bugs (bugs) are and as the test …. return : D

How to redirect the old domain to the new one?

xenno : August 27, 2014 11:54 pm : HTML, Mondo Technicus

A question that appears on move: How to redirect the old domain to the new one?

I have a blog, and can be read at http://blogvechi.com and decide that it’s time to move him, to do something new, to bring more of the written or any other reason, the address http: // blognou.com.

After you make sure everything is copied and installed in the new location, I noticed that my readers are still looking for the old address and the new one does not get anyone to read. All you have to do is to define the root htaccess file redirecting the old site.

This denotes that you are still old domain owner.

The few lines can help me get rid of this problem and other problems that result from such a move.

When you migrate a site from one domain to another, it is important not to break all ties that you were built to the old you. Proper forwarding of all pages on the old domain to the same location on the new field will ensure that our old domain will get to the right place. Without this redirection will have a loss of visitors and search engine rankings.

Suppose your web server using Apache for the purpose of this tutorial. If you have not made ​​changes to the structure of your site overall, and you simply moved the site in its current state, you can add the following lines to the file located in the old root domain htaccess .

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>   
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain.com$ [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.olddomain.com$
  RewriteRule(.*)$http://www.newdomain.com/$1[R=301,L]
</IfModule>

Is it possible to create rules that will redirect URLs that follow a certain pattern to a new location. Since these rules involve complex regular expressions, they are not explained here. A professional SEO can help you to create these complex rules in a specific situation. Just make sure you use a 301 redirect for content moved. Any other type of redirection will not keep your search engine rankings (Google for example).

xenno : October 18, 2012 12:35 pm : IT, Linux, Mondo Technicus, Windows

I do not know how many of you are interested in page content when browsing the internet. You, the adults may not have any concern, but with little ones … concerns arise.
Someone said that a child should operate a computer around the age of 15 years. Someone else said that a child should not get interdiction only limitation. Prohibition attract curiosity but putting limits you can do it directly or indirectly. What if you could put some limits without those around you knowing that? What if you had the opportunity to somehow filter content page?
Of course there are many tools but today I stopped at one: Scrub Public DNS. more »
