Storegrid removal/reinstallation

September 30, 2007 Leave a comment

I had a problem where I tested the Professional version of Storegrid but then ended up needing to install the Service Provider Edition. Some things need to be configured an removed to easily do that.

Mac OSX:
in terminal:
ps aux | grep StoreGrid
kill -9 all processes listed
Remove Vembu directory where it was installed. I had specified /Applications at install time.
Remove Storegrid items from /System/Library/Startup Items

in terminal window:
ps aux | grep StoreGrid
kill -9 all processes listed
Remove storegrid user
Remove storegrid user’s home folder

Network Time (NTP) Syncronized Date in Ubuntu Server

September 29, 2007 Leave a comment

sudo bash
aptitude install ntpdate

You can add that last line to crontab to do it hourly.
nano /etc/crontab
 paste in at the bottom:
47 *    * * *   root    /etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate

That will execute ntpdate 47 minutes after each hour.

This was posted in Ubuntu Forums and revised recently. It resolves issues when trying to view something with shockwave-flash within browsers of 64bit Ubuntu. The poster made the process incredibly simple.

Add a Hard Drive in Ubuntu

September 19, 2007 Leave a comment

In linux a hard drive needs an access point in the filesystem. Here is a quick and dirty method to get a hard drive to mount every time to the same place at startup:

Create an empty directory for the drive:

sudo mkdir /disk2

Use your favorite disk utility to create an ext3 partition.

edit fstab to mount at startup:

sudo nano /etc/fstab

add the following line (adjust directory and drive to match your configuration):

/dev/hdb1       /disk2   ext3   defaults        0       0

Ctrl-X, Y to save the file

sudo mount -a

If everything went right you should have access to the disk from your formerly empty directory.
