Just another Linux/Server blog.. with some other stuff thrown in there! - 100% NOT FOR PROFIT

Update:

Since this sites creation I started on Wordpress. Then moved to Confluence because I liked the layout better and wanted to become familiar with the software. This was all hosted on my home server which ultimately lead to some downtime like reboots and/or hardware failure. I now live in Northern Canada and pay ~$200/Month for 200GB's! So I moved my websites to the cloud. Unfortunately each of these moves had broken publicly posted URLs and I had to setup redirects to this main page. If you're looking for something specific and have been redirected to this page, try the search function at the top! Now that this site is in Google's Cloud, I suspect it will stay there and unchanged for a long time to come.

About This Site:

This site is just a place for me to share the technology related hurtles I have overcome. Once you get into using the CLI, you realize how important it is to document things! With that being said, nothing on here is guaranteed to work, or even be correct! Take it as you will. Most of what I write is taken from other guides and mix-n-matched for what works for me. Also, almost all my guides will be extremely short and to the point, not a lot of explaining the code. I LOVE short guides, so that's what I make :) If I helped, please leave a comment, I enjoy hearing success stories and if you find a problem, please comment as well!

 

My main OS at the time is Ubuntu Server Edition, but I also use CentOS for anything VoIP or High Availability related.  

I also run my own VMWare ESXI server I run my home server on KVM and I am a die-hard fan of virtualization and "type 1" Hypervisors. My first server I built everything right on the hardware and if I ever messed up, or wanted to start fresh, I had to rebuild my entire eco-system. This was a huge hindrance as every time I get something to work, I like to do it again to make sure I understand it and my notes are correct. Virtualization has vastly improved my ability to test things and decrease my downtime.

 


 

About Me:

I fell in love with Linux and servers while studying for Computer Networking Associates in the CENT program at Honolulu Community College. I completed my education at Montgomery County Community College in Pennsylvania gaining a degree in Computer Networking and Cyber Security (Cum Laude). I spend way to much time learning about Linux, servers and finding technological things to learn, but it has already paid off. I am currently enjoying living in my dream place to live, Northern Canada. I am also offering services locally via https://www.ytit.ca/.

Outside of servers and Linux, I enjoy walking my dog, canoeing, hiking, biking and watching anything that starts with "star", but mostly Stargate!

    I am also a computer science/network sec/IT student and am glad that I found your site! I have yet to make my way through all of the articles on your site, but at first glance it looks like I may have hit the jack-pot! Either way, kudos for putting all this info out there. Respect!

    Where is your script for GPU passthrough?
    Thanks

    1. Prep Linux OS for GPU Passthrough - Blacklist nouveau and use vfio-pci drivers script

      PS: The main reason I left ESXi is my CPU burnt a core while on ESXi! ESXi expects you to buy a 3rd party tool/hardware to get health stats from your computer CPU/GPU,etc. After that I switched to KVM which offers all the benefits of regular Linux (Like device temp warnings.....). KVM is awesome, but ESXi/VMWare is a great product too. Learn both/all of them! PS: Let's connect and talk technology (smile) ... Also, ESXi wtf, your OS should check CPU temp's via regular channels.... Thanks that Intel is GREAT with RMA process.

    Love the site, so much of my own self I see on here (Specifically the glue to install XYZ with either a shell script, a 1 liner, or a full blown guide...)

     

    Anywho, I will add useful things as I go across it, would you drop me a mail at freesoftware //\\ at symbol //\\ ithuriel.info
