There are many posts out there showing the process to modify the /etc/fstab file to include mounting a CIFS share to a Windows based system. The base Ubuntu Wiki does a great job, however this post is a quick tip for the .smbcredentials file to pass along the domain name to my Openfiler shares.
From my CounterStrike Global Offence setup, I realized that hosting the HLStats server online also was hosting my phpmyadmin directory as well. As exposing the database to the outside world is very undesirable, a simple change the the Apache sites-enabled directory on Ubuntu 14.04 corrected the issue.
OS X seemed to work well enough for standard use, but I had previously gotten used to Linux as my primary desktop and was beginning to miss it. I loved the footprint and the flexibility. With the updates included within the Ubuntu 14.04, enough pieces of the puzzle had been worked out. This post contains some notes on the build and links to help others.
While taking some screenshots for a previous post, I ran into some issues with capturing a screenshot of an individual window. There was several options that were available, but the standard Alt+PrtScn was not one of them.
With the CounterStrike:Global Offensive server now up and running, I wanted to see some statistics around the activity on the server. This is a post about the HLStatsX:CE plugin and the updates made to the Perl script to allow Geographical IP mapping to work properly.
CounterStrike has always been enjoyable to play from time to time. I have had a CS 1.6 server in the past, but it was time to stand up a CS:GO server. There are many steps available online to walk through this process, however they all seem to lack the end to end setup to share your private server with the community at large. Once we outline those missing steps, we will cover how to make this into a properly functioning server.
*Update* Working on Ubuntu 14.04 currently, stay tuned for some additional updates! It seems like some of the configuration path references were no longer valid after the upgrade.
I currently have a certificate that provides the HTTPS functionality for this website as well as my web mail access. As there is the capability to add Subject Alternate Names (SAN) to the certificate, it was ideal to enable the existing godaddy.com certificate for the Cisco Expressway Edge server. The requirements with Cisco’s Expressway server is that a private key decryption password is not allowed, and my private key requires a password.
Running some Linux machines for long periods of time can cause some older kernels to hang around on the /boot partition. As the /boot partition is small by design, this can cause a situation where space runs out. On my lab system, errors that have been created from this includes VMware Tools failing to load and package upgrade issues. Fortunately, the fix is not too difficult.
Every so often I am using a system that inserts a A, B, C, or D when using the arrow keys within the Vim editors insert mode. Vim is for VI Improved. While I did not dig into the exact reasons as to why (terminal emulation?) it happens, it is quite annoying. The fix was simple in my case.
