Lono finally succumbed to feline lymphoma after a 2+ year battle. In the coming weeks I’ll be adding post on his care and living with cancer. He fought til the bitter end. We love you Lono.
This post is an update to a previous post on using multiple interfaces(Ethernet cards) on the LAN, – utilizing RedHat’s popular virtualization tools – QEMU, KVM, libvirt, and virt-manager. In this article I will demonstrate with Fedora 21, but this roughly applies to CentOS 7 as well. I’ve resisted upgrading to recent versions of Fedora/CentOS for […]
Recently I’ve been tasked with figuring out how to provision Polycom phones on the 4.0 firmware. I’ve resisted for some time because of our existing GUI and templates. However, the time has come to make the transition. This tutorial will cover how to create a custom settings file that used to make up sip.cfg. We […]
It’s a dream come true. Civ V on Linux!!!!!!!!!! Let me just say this: OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG….! Okay, deep breath. I love Civ, but my current situation only allows one computer, so I have to swap drives and boot Windows to play my most favorite of games. It’s huge bummer, because it disrupts […]
Recently Fedora has been a nightmare for me. Anyone that’s seen(the fairly new) GNOME 3 knows what I’m talking about. Their design team must have dreamed up the next iteration of GNOME with only a tablet in mind. The giant icons and dependency on keyboard shortcuts make it a must for a 7″ inch screen and a few swipes. […]
The script below records a ping results every 3 seconds to /var/log/ping.log. I created this script to detemine if my NIC is losing conectivity with switch at the same time as Asterisk SIP peers are lagging out. Enjoy!
The default UI on Gnome 3 is Bad. Everyone knows it. I’ve been running Fedora 14 for what seems like years, hoping that one day the Gnome development team pulls their heads out of their collective asses and restores a simple, low impact interface. Instead, as of Fedora 16, I still see these gigantic window title bars, […]
I’m using PHP to create a daemon(system process) that listens for request to dial outbound calls from a Asterisk based dialer. Before I even got started I got the following error: Many websites suggest recompiling PHP or installing ‘php-posix’, which isn’t in the Fedora repo. After some searching I found that ‘php-posix’ is part of […]
Queuemetrics is by far the best Call Center software Linux. My only complaint might be that Java is huge resource hog when it parses the Asterisk. ‘/var/log/asterisk/queue_log’. Luckily Loway provides an excellent PERL script called Qloader. Today we will walk through installing Queuemeteics,MySQL,and Qloader daemon. My installation instructions are basically a quick rundown of the excellent infomation […]
For AT&T it’s another day, another dollar… or rather billions of dollars. Your’s, collected from taxes and deficit spending. I read a article on cnet about AT&T’s justification of ‘download usage caps’. AT&T General Counsel Wayne Watts reasoned the need for caps like this, “It is hardly surprising that the general counsel of Netflix, a company […]
