  • Docker


    Life before Docker After ages musing about learning Docker, I have finally made the switch, and now I can never go back. I’d previously played with Docker on some of my Raspberry Pi 3’s and a surplus laptop, but I wasn’t happy with the pace of my learning. I figured that the best way to […]

  • KDE Neon on ZFS

    Based on this excellent guide. WARNING:  You’re going to be messing with hard drives.  You’ll probably be doing most of this as root.  As the old adage goes, “The good thing about Linux is that it does exactly what you tell it to do.  The bad thing about Linux is that it does exactly what […]

  • Chinese Input + KDE Neon

    Managed to get Chinese input on KDE Neon using fcitx.

  • Local git repo + ssh keys

    Handy little guide on setting up git repos locally.

    Geeked out pretty hard this weekend!  Bit of a convoluted process but I’m happy with the way things are going.  Laptop is free to run Windows for vidya.  Raspberry Pi 3 does my dinky Linux server stuff. Re-partitioned the drive in the Windows laptop to have a bit more room for the break-in-case-of-emergency Linux partition […]

    Following this guide I set up ELK stack in a VM.  Currently only getting logs from my www server, but will add others later.  Also need to mess with grok.

  • mysqld_safe Directory ‘/var/run/mysqld’ for UNIX socket file don’t exists.

    This is an error I get when starting MySQL on a Galera cluster node after a reboot. The result of this is that MySQL fails to start automatically after a reboot.  I have no idea why this is happening and the error appears to be extremely rare, as there (from what Googling I’ve done so […]
