When saving on the WayBack machine at terminates the connection

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/27

When you get the response “ unexpectedly closed the connection” without even returning an HTTP code, but:

  • it works in anonymous mode
  • it works with all extensions turned off

then likely there are too many cookies for or/and in my case, I had 90 cookies.

Cleaning these cookies out resolved the problem (I used awesome cookie manager for this).

When your btrfs partition is damaged.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/27

A while ago, I somehow had a damaged btrfs partition that I found out after the virtualisation host without reason decided to reboot.

I’m not sure what caused that (by now the machine has been retired as it was already getting a bit old), but btrfs was panicking shortly after boot, so the VM as is was unusable.

In the end I had to:

  1. Boot from a Tumbleweed Rescue DVD (download Rescue CD – x86_64 from [WayBackopenSUSE:Tumbleweed installation – openSUSE)
  2. Add a fresh backup hard disk in read-write mote
  3. Mount the old one in read-only mode
  4. rsync -avloz over as much as I could
  5. Restore the VM from a backup
  6. Attach the backup hard disk
  7. Diff what I missed (only a few bits in the /etc tree and my home directory for which I hadn’t yet pushed the git repositories).

These didn’t work, but might work for others: [WayBackSDB:BTRFS – openSUSE – How to repair a broken/unmountable btrfs filesystem
