Second Followup to Podman and PHPIPAM

Turns out that on my Fedora 30 VM something got screwed up with the CNI networking (the networking that Podman uses) and instead of pointing to the address that Podman is using according to Cockpit: 10.88.0.1 It’s pointing somewhere else. I found that via iptables -L. Not sure how to fix it, though. When I …

Followup to Podman and PHPIpam

Adding the –name mysql – it wasn’t enough to get the PHPIpam apache container to find the mysql container. They’re in the same pod, but something’s not quite right. So I decided to see if I could modify the config.php by mounting the container and modifying that. # podman mount beautiful_gauss /var/lib/containers/storage/overlay/5a33decc2cfad7e9bda5f9048d94a814267d954e97d5dd7befb057a84367f27a/merged While this allowed …

Every once in a while the puerile makes me laugh

Like these random container names that podman generated: # podman ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES b83a26bb2c5d docker.io/library/mysql:5.6 mysqld 2 minutes ago Up 2 minutes ago 0.0.0.0:8081->80/tcp hungry_wilson f35ec64d3b3c docker.io/pierrecdn/phpipam:latest apache2-foregroun… 2 minutes ago Up 2 minutes ago 0.0.0.0:8081->80/tcp nice_johnson Makes me think perhaps there should be a list of adjectives and …

Can Docker and Podman both run on the same machine?

I’ve been hearing about Podman for a while now – at Red Hat Summit and at various local Red Hat presentations. I’ve seen the slides where the RHEL presenter (it’s always the same guy, but I’m terrible with names – after a bit of research, I think it’s Dan Walsh) asks you to pledge to …

Daisy (laptop) upgrade to Fedora 31

When I tried to upgrade the laptop a couple days ahead of the Tuesday release date, assuming that the sources were as good as gold at that point, the upgrade process complained about the Kdevelop Python plugin and didn’t want to proceed. I figured if this persisted past Tuesday I would just use it as …

Fedora 31 is coming; Getting on Fedora 30

Back when Fedora 30 came out, I updated my laptop, but I left my main computer and the HTPC on Fedora 29. The former because I was busy with something at the time and didn’t want the disruption of an upgrade; the latter because the family depends on it for entertainment. However, with Fedora 31 …

Dracula Theme

Just in time for Halloween I discovered the Dracula set of dark themes.They’ve got themes for nearly every code editor and shell/console program you can think of. Here’s Yakuake with the Dracula Konsole theme: And here’s Kate with the Dracula theme: I like the color scheme, but the font’s a bit small, so I might …

Going back to SQlite on Digikam

Based on the file modification dates, I went from using the Digikam SQLite database to using their embedded MySQL database in May 2018. I did it because at the time everyone was saying that for a large database it’s better to use SQL than SQLite. For a long time it seemed to work well enough …

Addendum to my KDevelop Post

A couple days ago, I wrote about giving KDevelop another look and posted it to reddit’s r/kde. In my post, I’d said it was annoying to have to configure the color schemas per file. Someone commented on the subreddit that if you use the View->Schema menus it’s per file while if you go into Settings->KDevelop …

Upgraded Laptop to Fedora 30

Now that I’m back from Red Hat Summit, I am ready to start upgrading my Fedora computers. Well, probably not the server or the living room HTPC – I’ll take advantage of the fact that Fedora supports the n-1 release to reduce headaches and downtime. As I’ve done for a few releases now, I used …

The self-hosting journey continues

Although I’ve had a website since the mid-90s, it was 2005 or thereabouts that I first started hosting my own sites rather than relying on other sites. The first bit of hosting involved blogging and I tried a few different software packages before settling on WordPress. And other than playing around with phpBB for my …

CentOS 7 works on Acer Aspire One D255E

Often people try and dissuade you from installing CentOS onto a laptop because they say the chipsets on the laptops are so varied it’s likely you will end up unable to use your laptop because the drivers aren’t there. Well, I don’t know if it’s because this netbook is so old (I mean, netbooks as …
