UPS di Linux

Sebuah UPS jelas sangat vital bagi sebuah server, tapi UPS itu sendiri tidak bisa banyak berguna jika mati lampu saat sedang tidak ada orang. Harus ada cara agar UPS bisa memberitahu server, sehingga server bisa mematikan dirinya sendiri dengan baik.

Sudah ada banyak UPS yang menyertakan software versi Windows untuk keperluan ini, tapi tidak terlalu banyak yang menyediakan versi Linux-nya. Jadi kemudian saya mulai mencari-cari solusi untuk ini:

[ PowerD ] – Kelihatannya sudah lama tidak di update, tapi mungkin ada gunanya bagi pengguna UPS yang sudah tua umurnya.
[ Network UPS Tools ] – Yang ini kelihatannya up to date, saya akan mencoba ini.
[ Linux UPS HOWTO ] – Berbagai panduan seputar penggunaan UPS di komputer Linux
[ Automatic UPS shutdown in Linux ]

Semoga bermanfaat.

FC3 + LTSP : Beberapa tips

Kalau diminta untuk download GPG key,
klik Applications – System Tools – Terminals,
lalu ketikkan :

rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-test

Tidak bisa chatting

Biasanya karena server IRC ybs mensyaratkan adanya ident server.
Cara instalasi ident di FC3 :

# download oidentd-2.0.7 dari :
# Klik Applications – System Tools – Terminals
# Lalu ketikkan :
tar xzvf oidentd-2.0.7.tar.gz
cd oidentd-2.0.7
make install

# Jalankan oidentd-2.0.7 dengan mengetikkan : /usr/local/sbin/oidentd
# Agar ident dijalankan secara otomatis setiap kali kita menghidupkan server, masukkan baris tersebut diatas ke dalam /etc/rc.local

News Aggregator

Well, the more precise term might be “blog aggregator”, since I’m talking about [ Bloglines ], but since I rarely read news on the traditional news media and have considered blog / online media as my main news source- there you go.

I’m very happy that I have easier access now to even more interesting news sources, thanks to the explosion of blogging scene. Bloglines is helping me to access those separate news sources into a single place.
One annoyance though – Bloglines keep grouping the news by the source. It’s not able to show the news from the newest first regardless of its source, or maybe I haven’t found the switch for it. If anyone has found out how to accomplish this / other site which can do this, kindly please let me know. Thanks!

I found so many interesting news from those, here’s a few of it, and then some :

  • [ MetaVNC ] – while other VNC transmit the whole screen, MetaVNC is able to transmit just parts of it; a window for example, transparently to your current desktop. So you can be working on Windows, but have Konqueror window opened on it – which is actually accessed remotely via MetaVNC. Way cool.
  • [ ] – the easiest way to find the hottest deals on; it’s not uncommon to find items discounted up to 90% here ! If you live in USA – you lucky bastard 🙂
  • UltarVNC’s [ NAT2NAT ] project : NAT2NAT enables you to connect client to server where BOTH of them are behind NAT, with no need to do any portforwarding. I’ve been looking for this kind of stuff for a while now, cool. The UltraVNC team seems to be quite good, with other creative projects such as [ UltraVNC Repeater ] etc.
  • If only [ this guy ] provide RSS feed of his website, I’ll subscribe in an instant. He rarely write, but when he do, it’ll be either very clever, or very funny, And definitely very interesting.
  • [ The Zen of Freelancing ] – if you’re a freelancer / IT consultant, you must read this. It can make your life much enjoyable. Thanks to [ Kemas ] for the link.
