rsync z-lib compression segmentation fault? WTF!

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/07/27

Not sure why without the -z compression switch this succeeds:

# rsync -avloz /var/lib/named/master/ /etc/named/master/
sending incremental file list
pluimers.com
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
# rsync -avlo /var/lib/named/master/ /etc/named/master/
sending incremental file list
pluimers.com
pluimers.com.20161231
pluimers.com~

sent 10,495 bytes  received 74 bytes  21,138.00 bytes/sec
total size is 132,231  speedup is 12.51
# rsync -avloz /var/lib/named/master/ /etc/named/master/
sending incremental file list

SMS sending with Mikrotik RouterOS and a capabable USB device

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/07/27

Some links that were useful getting the SMS sending stuff to work.

The documentation is clear on what to do to send/receive SMS:

But it is unclear what USB hardware does work, so here are some links:
