I have a lot to say about a outdoor wireless project I’m working on which dovetails into a lot of commentary about C.H.I.P. boards but I haven’t written all that yet. This post, instead, will focus on how I finally successfully flashed the firmware on a C.H.I.P. board from my Fedora laptop. Keep reading →
After installing Fedora 25, the NFS mounts in my
/etc/fstab were no longer working. I initially thought it was due to missing some dependency but the errors were vague and overall unhelpful. Turns out it is SELinux related.

This might seem a little…redundant, but I wanted to be able to test some things on an installation mimicking a fresh installation on my laptop. So here are some notes on what I’ve done in order to get this going. Keep reading →
I have figured out how to how to automate Fedora install by kickstarting from netinstall image. But in order to do so, that kickstart file needs to be network accessible. I will use nginx (a popular web server…among other things) in a container to host this kickstart file on my network.

Wow, that’s quite a title. But I was unable to find a lot of helpful information on the internet describing how to accomplish what I aim to do. I found a lot of hints and clues, but nothing that spelled it all out. This page will capture my experience. Keep reading →
There are probably thousands, if not more, articles on the internet about how to install an OS on your Raspberry Pi. This article will largely repeat a lot of those, but I wanted to capture what I needed to do. Keep reading →
I’ve been using a Home Theater Personal Computer for quite a while now. It is in a hopeless plight to remove my (and my wife’s) dependence on the heartless cable companies. To this day we still have a cable bill which is the costliest of our monthly bills, but I continue to fight the good fight. I was excited to read about SlingTV for streaming sports, but was too choppy to provide a good experience. There are a lot of factors which could have effected this and I will probably revisit that solution in the future. But recently I’ve read about a way to watch “live” TV streaming through my existing media server. Keep reading →
I’ve heard repeatedly by popular and wildly successful bloggers that they’re either very grateful that they started establishing their subscribers early or how disgusted they are that they didn’t get their mailing list growing earlier. I don’t really have any idea how I’ll ever use one but perhaps that’s just part of the learning process. All the same, I’m going to attempt to get a mail/subscriber list going. Keep reading →
I previously wrote a rudimentary script and post where I wanted to reboot my htpc if I was unable to access the internet. That has been working fine and rebooted the system more than a few times. But I’ve learned that I don’t necessarily want to reboot if I’m using the system inside my network. Like if Plex is actively serving content, don’t reboot. Keep reading →
Ultimately I am trying to figure out why my Ubuntu server routinely craps out and is unable to reach the outside world. I find that if I restart the system, networking comes back up ok…at least for a while. This is an first crack at a rudimentary script to reboot it if unable to connect (or if the VPN isn’t working).
