OpenSuSE on ODROID? Maybe one day I get to researching that

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/01

For my research list (thanks Mariusz Fik ‏@Fisiu):

Actually: this was more of a reminder checking out if someone else by now has made OpenSuSE Tumbleweed builds for ODROID (:

Some notes on having static-web site owners upload their content over SFTP

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/14

Yes, there are still static web-sites. A long time ago, they were uploaded over FTP. Now many use more secure protocols.

So here are some links and notes to allow this on a Linux based host running OpenSSH.

I got to the above via these two links:

An alternative might be web-dave, but that would probably mean some hassle to separate uploading the site from accessing the site.

Re: [opensuse-factory] openssl dependency problems with snapshot 2017112

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/01

I had zypper being confused about the dist-upgrade between these snapshots:

< CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:opensuse:tumbleweed:20171125"
> CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:opensuse:tumbleweed:20171129"

It ran into this:

Problem: libopenssl-1_0_0-devel-1.0.2m-1.1.x86_64 conflicts with libopenssl-devel > 1.0.2m provided by libopenssl-devel-1.1.0g-1.1.noarch

Based on [WayBackRe: [opensuse-factory] openssl dependency problems with snapshot 2017112 after discussing with DimStar, I choose to have zypper dist-upgrade to perform

deinstallation of libopenssl-1_0_0-devel-1.0.2m-1.1.x86_64

Now all is fine.

Thanks Dominique a.k.a. DimStar!

SuSEconfig is dead…

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/30

SuSEconfig has been dead for a while, but still indexed at quite a few of the official sites stressing the importance to use it.

It used to apply the configuration in /etc/sysconfig to the system.

The rationale for removal was simple:

Let’s remove all SuSEconfig scripts since only YaST calls SuSEconfig but other tools like rpm and zypper do not call it.

If scripts are needed, they need to be invoked as part of the postinstall.

Now most services either know to directly handle the configuration data there (and apply it during reload/restart/start of the service), or have a tool (like postfix now has /usr/sbin/config.postfix) to apply the settings.

MX Backup – Postfix Email Server |

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/09

Interesting as it has steps for both OpenSuSE and Debian each well suited for running on a Raspberry Pi.

[WayBackMX Backup – Postfix Email Server |

It seems postfix is a lot easier to configure than sendmail so I already like it.

First I need to read a bit more in Postfix greylisting.

I’ll need to catch up on Sam’s other parts with the postfix tag as well:
