Damn! Damn this…this month. I gained 10+ lbs, that just makes my new years resolution a bit harder. Is it because I weighed myself when I just got done eating a full meal? Probably me, but to me, even though that could add a couple of pounds plus the clothing I’m wearing in Winter…a gain is still a gain! Damn. Even though I already lost 30+ lbs a couple of years ago, I still want to lose more. I want to lose 30+ lbs more bringing the total to around 60+ lbs lost. Will I be able to do it?
Today openSUSE launched version 11.1! I waited for it until T-XX something. I haven’t really used openSUSE that much as compared to Fedora. The last one that I’ve used was 10.3 way back and it just didn’t got me like how Fedora did. The main reason was that my sound card just doesn’t work! No matter how much I tried and how many people I asked in the openSUSE forums. Now that 11.1 has just been released I completely remove my Fedora 10 installation in my laptop and did a complete clean install of openSUSE 11.1. By the way, I love Fedora 10 and there’s nothing wrong with it, I just wanted to try openSUSE again. Maybe this time…it won’t give me such a headache or maybe this time I can handle it since I know a lot more about GNU/Linux than the past and I mostly know how to deal with stuff now. We’ll see…
Wuhoo! I thought BIND9 was hard…it wasn’t! Especially with the help of Webmin and well…the numerous forums out there since you can basically just look around for answers if you are having problems. So what exactly happened? Well if you did a NS (Name Server) look-up for both of these domains, it’ll show up as ns1.name.com…ns4.name.com. Now I don’t know about you but that looks like hosting your website with your own domain vs hosting your website from some free web hosts. In short, it doesn’t really look good for OCD people like me. So I intended to change it! JoinPGN.com will have JoinPGN.com name servers and the same will happen for WeRAzn.com. So after a couple of days of paranoia about how to properly setup BIND9, I was able to do it. If you did a NS look-up now for JoinPGN.com it’ll show up as ns1.joinpgn.com…ns5.joinpgn.com and then it’ll be the same thing for WeRAzn.com. Now how cool is that! So…let’s see, I have my own dedicated server now, web server, game server, dns server and now the only thing left is a mail server which I’ll probably fiddle in the near future.
I put Fedora 10 since I’m not sure if this will work in all the GNU/Linux distros out there, though I’m sure it will work on most. Anyway if you guys want to know if youre kernel is running at 1000MHz just type in this command.
grep CONFIG_HZ /boot/config-`uname -r`
And the output should look like this.
[root@localhost ~]# grep CONFIG_HZ /boot/config-`uname -r` # CONFIG_HZ_100 is not set # CONFIG_HZ_250 is not set # CONFIG_HZ_300 is not set CONFIG_HZ_1000=y CONFIG_HZ=1000 [root@localhost ~]#
Hope that’s helpful!
I haven’t shared this with you guys but there was a time that I was really having a hard time deleting a certain file because I apparently wasn’t the owner of the file. And so I looked all over the internet to find a tutorial on how to manually delete files that you do not own. And I came across a Windows Vista Registry tweak that will add a Take Ownership item to your Vista Context Menu. Here’s how it looks when you right-click on a file – I right-clicked on a file named debian-40r5-i386-DVD-1.iso.
