Now, the challenge was trying to get rJava working on RHEL. I could not find any proper documentation that worked. Instead, I ran into a bunch of posts and pointing to things that worked in their environment, but not on mine (so, this might not work on yours as well, but I hope it does). I usually like to give credit to the sources, but this time, they were so many over a long time span, that I could not remember what came from where anymore. So, I apologize for that. Below are the things that I did to get rJava working.
$ sudo yum install gcc-c++ gcc-gfortran R R-core R-core-devel R-devel R-java R-java-devel java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel
$ sudo yum list install gcc*
Once, you have installed the necessary packages; then it is time to
I finally was able to find a guide that was able to allow me to setup Moodle on 1&1 Shared hosting environment. To me, the only thing that I followed was deactivating “slash arguments” from “http://yourserver/admin/settings.php?section=http” section. Once I did that, then my web HTML 1.0 site, got converted into a web HTML 3.0 (at least).
I just recently migrated from Untangle 11.2 to Sophos UTM to give it a ride and noticed that a lot of things are blocked (which is a good thing if you know what you are doing and need to unblock it). Just recently I noticed that I couldn’t make any more calls by using my iPad or Mac through my iPhone. So, continuity was not working like it was before.
I went to the Apple site (see sources), but couldn’t figure out what port or services were the one that needed to be allowed by the firewall. So, after analyzing dropped packages by the firewall, I noticed a pattern and created the following firewall rule. Since the creation of this firewall rule, I haven’t had any more issues with continuity nor downloading content from games in Game Center.
So, if you have RHEL 6, you might be stuck with Python 2.6. But, not really. Even though you might not be able to install a new version of python using yum, you can still download a new version of python and install it in your environment. Now, you can install it and replace the current version or you can install another version and have two python in your system.
Install GCC by typing
sudo yum install gcc
Now, let’s download a release from python.org. In this example we will be using Python 3.5.0.
sudo wget https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.5.0/Python-3.5.0.tar.xz sudo tar xf Python-3.5.0.tar.xz sudo cd Python-3.5.0
Let’s build the package
Now, to install it you have two options. You can either overwrite the python executable or you can install as concurrent instance.
If you want to overwrite the OS python executable
sudo make install
If you want to install concurrent (not overwritting the OS executable)
Finally I was able to find some documentation on how to configure Sophos VPN UTM.
For years now I have had a successful split tunnel VPN with my Sophos UTM. Recently I’ve wanted to have a full tunnel option for greater security in remote areas (hotel wi-fi, etc.) Unfortunately setting up such a thing in Sophos is NOT straightforward. The biggest problem I had was that no websites would work … Continue reading Configure full VPN tunnel in Sophos UTM →
Just recently with the announcement of Win 10 made available for free, I wanted to upgrade, but got an error message that I can not upgrade due to SVGA drivers compatibility. Between VMware and Microsoft, they are both pointing fingers to one another and nobody wants to take responsibility. So, the easiest way to do it, would be to download the ISO and perform the upgrade yourself.
The title to this post might be deceiving, since I am not going to walk you through on how to make Thunderbird portable, but rather how to make Thunderbird portable cross different devices by using a file sharing tool (ie. Dropbox).
Let’s say that you have two Linux, Mac, or Windows machines and would like to have your Thunderbird mailboxes and configurations to be the same. So, whenever you make a change on one machine, it will synchronize on the other. Key that you want to consider is how much space your Thunderbird profile is taking and if you will have enough space in Dropbox.
The following was tested in two different Ubuntu Linux machines (I also did it on Windows machines, but the steps below are for Linux). Here is what you will need to do.
Make sure that you have Thunderbird configure the way you want it/like it on PC#1
Then close out Thunderbird to make the following changes
Go to folder /home/pc1_user/.thunderbird/
where pc1_user will be change to your actual user profile
You will see couple of files and folders in there. The ones that you will be interested are “profiles.ini” and “randomfoldername.default”
where “randomfoldername.default” will be something like this “z85gg4eg.default”
Move “randomfoldername.default” to your Dropbox account. In my case I created a folder for Thunderbird where this new folder will be under.
Here is how it looks… /home/pc1_user/Dropbox/Thunderbird/randomfoldername.default
Now, let’s update “profiles.ini”. Your configurations might look like something like this
