Early Morning Linux Voodoo at Denny’s

It was obvious he had no idea what I was talking about so we waited in awkward silence for the next few seconds. Finally, the Mint logo appeared on the screen. I opened Dolphin and located the Windows drive then asked him for the name of the file. He couldn’t remember but was sure it was a PDF. A few minutes later, I pulled a pen from my pocket and wrote down the number he needed and slid it back over to him with his laptop.

Linux Terminal: An lsof Primer

  • linuxaria.com; By Daniel Miessler (Posted by linuxaria on Sep 30, 2014 2:24 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
lsof is the sysadmin/security über-tool. I use it most for getting network connection related information from a system, but that’s just the beginning for this powerful and too-little-known application. The tool is aptly called lsof because it “lists openfiles“. And remember, in UNIX just about everything (including a network socket) is a file.

Interestingly, lsof is also the Linux/Unix command with the most switches. It has so many it has to use both minuses and pluses.

Learn how to support women in open source

Women are an underrepresented group in the open source world. According to data from the FLOSS 2013 survey, a little more than 10% of open source developers are women. Recently, there have been several attempts to make open source more welcoming to women contributors and supportive of their accomplishments. Two good examples of these efforts are GNOME's Outreach Program for Women, an internship program designed to welcome women into the open source community and provide them with mentoring, and Red Hat's Women in Open Source Award. read more

stop bashing bash and GNU

This is a defense of the most prolific and dedicated public servant that has graced the world in my lifetime. One man has added hundreds of billions, if not trillions of dollars of value to the global economy. This man has worked tirelessly for the benefit of everyone around him. It is impossible to name a publicly traded company that has not somehow benefitted from his contributions, and many have benefitted to the tune of billions. In return for the countless billions of wealth that people made from the fruits of his labor, he was rewarded with poverty and ridicule. Now that the world is done taking from him, they are heading to the next step of villifying him as incompetent.

I speak of Richard Stallman, progenitor of the free software movement and creator of GNU (as in GNU/Linux, the most widely deployed operating system in the world, and GNU bash, the tool that has caused so much shellshock lately).

Encrypt Your Dog (Mutt and GPG)

How to setup your OTP appliance with privacyIDEA

In this howto we will setup a system that can act as your own personal OTP appliance, managing all authentication devices in your network.

Shellshock: Fedora Docker Repositories Updated

How does this affect the Fedora Docker containers? Here is a great article on understanding how Shellshock works. As far as how it affects Fedora Docker containers, there are two sets of images that we need to be aware of. The first is the Fedora base image. The Fedora base image comes with bash because it is pulling in the @core package group as part of the image build process. We can check this out by pulling down the Fedora base image and having a look inside.
