Rebooting a Linux server unattended – twm’s blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/21

[WayBack] Rebooting a Linux server unattended – twm’s blog:

/sbin/shutdown -r now

Simple, but I keep forgetting where Linux has short/long command options and short/long verbs.

Raspberry Pi 1B OpenSuSE Tumbleweed zypper upgrade problem · GitHub

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/25

It looks like OpenSuSE has stopped supporting Raspberry Pi 1, so the best likely is to recycle it into a Pi-Hole as basically it’s been dead since mid 2017: [WayBack] Raspberry Pi 1B OpenSuSE Tumbleweed zypper upgrade problem · GitHub.

ipmi – Linux: Why does Single User mode work on Serial Console but not on the attached Keyboard/Video/Monitor? – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/19

From [WayBack] ipmi – Linux: Why does Single User mode work on Serial Console but not on the attached Keyboard/Video/Monitor? – Server Fault (slightly edited; thanks Patrick!):

Because init has not spawned off multiple TTYs yet (getty, mgetty, etc), so you only have the primary TTY. The primary TTY is the last console= parameter on the kernel command line. All the console parameters get the output, but only the last one will be able to act as input.

TL;DR: Raspberry Pi models 1..3 become hotter and hotter under load; no housing gives best cooling.

Signal messaging downloads

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/23

I forgot about the announcement that Signal had also become available on the Desktop, but it is via [WayBack] https://signal.org/download/:

  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Debian based x64 Linux:

$ curl -s https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/keys.asc | sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list
$ sudo apt update && sudo apt install signal-desktop

I like the mix of echo and tee to update the [WayBack] /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder with the signal-xenial.list file.

These links will always give you the latest download filename:

The files you get there will be relative to the path https://updates.signal.org/desktop/ so will be similar to:

You can get the sources at https://github.com/WhisperSystems/Signal-Desktop/releases
