Where do you store your code projects – Github? What about private projects…do you pay for private repos? You can have more control over your projects and even configure automated tests and builds – all using open source software! Fire up your spare hypervisor and read on to learn how to build your own dev project host!
I am just starting to upgrade / install Ubuntu 14.04 on my servers, so it’s time to create a guide to install Nagios 4 on Ubuntu 14.04. Apparently Nagios Core install scripts wern’t well tested for Debian systems. But in any case, it can be installed with a couple modifications.
This guide is going to be very similar to my other Nagios install guides.
It’s time to enter into summer mode with my lab. By that I mean that it’s time to move important KVM guests off of the HP G5 server and shut that space heater down. Here are my notes with moving guests. If you are looking to move guests from a CentOS to Ubuntu hypervisor, I encourage you to read over my findings. You could also reverse-engineer the article if you are going from Ubuntu to CentOS as well.
XFCE has been my desktop of choice for some time now, but I still use some Gnome apps, like gedit. It seems to have developed some quarks though when installed in an XFCE environment. The terminal color scheme is one of them. Here is how to fix it.
Ubuntu 12.04 and Hyper-V have pretty good support for each other, but it’s not without a fair share of hiccups. I will go over all the steps required to install Xubuntu as a Hyper-V guest and configure remote access through VNC.
These instructions are intended for Hyper-V running on Windows 8 Pro.
Ubuntu 12.04 does play pretty well as a Hyper-V guest, but not without its quarks. This includes a completly blank screen after the installation is finished. Not to worry though – it’s nothing we can’t fix with a couple tweaks.
How to configure a Minecraft server with backups and upstart compatibility.
Ubuntu likes to cut space on my
/boot partitions awfully close when using their auto-partition method at install time. I had an apt update fail once because of a full
/boot partition and have been keeping an eye on them since. They frequently fill past 80%, so I clean out the old kernels when this happens. There is probably more of an automated way to do it, but this works for now.
I do not have Nagios 4.x on any production boxes yet, but I want to keep track on how this is working on Ubuntu 12.04. Apparently Nagios Core wasn’t well tested for Debian systems if at all. But in any case, it can be installed with a couple modifications.
This guide is going to be very similar to my guide on Nagios 3.x.
