Moving a live production web server from Ubuntu 11.04 to Debian 6.0.3

Jan 7th, 2012 | By

So 2 weeks ago I sadly moved my main server from FreeBSD 8.1 to a temporary home on an Ubuntu 11.04 VPS.  I say sadly because I’ve been using BSD for 10 years and in terms of stability and security I understand that it can’t be beat.. I also think I’m sad to see it

My journey towards a more personal and open open source OS

Nov 19th, 2011 | By

Ditching Ubuntu and switching to Debian   Well I finally made the switch this week, Ubuntu 11.10 was the straw that shattered the camels back and for many reasons.  To be honest I can deal with the never ending troubleshooting that a linux power user has to deal with.  The bottom line is that this

Oct 18th, 2011 | By

Well the operating system is functional, I can get emails, I can surf the web, I can connect via wireless or, for the first time with this laptop, via a cat5 cable but man oh man does it look like shit. The main issues I have to deal with right off the bat are: Compiz

Oct 18th, 2011 | By

After running the upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 and rebooting my boot service is hanging completely.  Right now it mainly stops at Starting CUPS printing Spooler/Server and if I leave it there for a couple of hours it sometimes makes it to Stopping anac(h)ronistic cron.   After trying 100 different solutions the end result was to sudo

11.04 proves to be a little bit of a headache

Apr 30th, 2011 | By

Update: After a couple more hours my little bit of a headache turned into a full blown apocalypse.  This new released is absolute garbage and the end result is me being forced to format my entire partition and reinstall a fresh copy of 10.04.  Unbelievable that this release would even see the light of day

Mar 4th, 2011 | By

Alright so easily one of the most frustrating things about having a laptop is the god damn touch pad.  Either it’s jumping all over the place while you are typing, or misinterpreting a middle click and pasting junk everywhere or any number of other frustrating things it can do to make your life miserable.  Lucky

I now have the quietest laptop around, and coincidentally the hottest

Jan 28th, 2011 | By

Well the inevitable decline of this LG R405 laptop is finally upon me as today the main cooling fan gave out.  I’m hoping that this might be a simple loose wire that I can soder or reattach but alas I left my tiny screw driver in Canada and so I can’t open this old girl

Public Key not working with user@server but does work with root@server

Aug 23rd, 2010 | By

Weirdest thing about my FreeBSD server that’s been bugging me for a long time.. I’m able to create rsa/dsa keys for passwordless logins but the catch was that it would only work if I was root on the client machine loggin in as root on the server.  After 6 hours of trouble shooting and mostly
