  • Recent Fedora 31 and Fedora 32 Upgrades

    Recently upgraded my server to Fedora 31 as the Fedora 30 support window had closed. All I had to do was disable the bat Modular Repo. It wasn’t obvious I needed to do this at first, but I found a bugzilla that covered it. Then everything proceeded. I also updated my main laptop to Fedora […]

  • Supermario’s at Fedora 31 Now

    Went ahead and upgraded. Only had to get rid of python2-twitter and an older nvidia package. Other than that it seems to be running relatively smoothly.

  • Attempting a podman play on another VM

    The podman saga continues. The podman equivalent of a docker-compose.yml can be created from a pod with the following command: podman generate kube (name of pod) > (filename).yaml So I did that with the pod that I’d created with an SELinux context. Now it was time to try it on another Fedora 31 VM to […]

  • SELinux and Podman

    Last time I messed around with Podman, I finally got things working and had what I think was a pretty good understanding of how to go forward. But in order to get things working, I’d had to turn off SELinux. Now it was time to see what I had to do to make Podman work […]

  • 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: 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 mysqld 2 minutes ago Up 2 minutes ago>80/tcp hungry_wilson f35ec64d3b3c apache2-foregroun… 2 minutes ago Up 2 minutes ago>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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Attempting to use Clonezilla to clone my server

    My main server, Tanukimario, has a 120GB hard drive in it and it’s started to become annoying to butt up against that limit. I have an 512GB SSD that I only used for a couple years that I wanted to use as a replacement. In order to reduce the annoyances that come from setting things […]

  • HDRMerge and CC Extractor RPMs

    A while back I created a copr repo for HDR Merge. I hadn’t kept up with it because there weren’t regular HDRMerge releases going on, but I noticed the git repo has been very active, so I decided to create a new RPM for Fedora 29. And recently I learned that for the newest version […]
