A developer, who recently started integrating IBM Connections with his business process was stuck with a strange issue. His project enabled a user, using the IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK, to post an update to the Activity Stream. The post failed while testing – a clear issue.
I posted the article on DeveloperWorks
if you see bizarre traffic on your website from semalt.com, they have a crawler that’ll go through and scan you site. I recommend referring to their twitter account and removal/crawler website. Scroll half way down, and remove your site.
I needed to figure out how to launch a script to find the ip when the network was started and up on SuSE Linux. After doing some research I found out that you can add scripts to the ifup.d and ifdown.d folders.
I created a file a script
# contents are below
Then I went ahead and added a symoblic link to /etc/sysconfig/networking/ifup.d
ln -s /etc/sysconfig/networking/scripts/ifup.quickstart quickstart
Every time the interface is started up, it checks to see if the ip changed for the given hostname, and makes the modifications automatically.
This file is here is the one I created to do the edits to the hosts file.
Setting up the IBM Social Business Toolkit and WordPress integration with Benjamin, I ran across an issue where the PHP setup did not include MCrypt. MCrypt is a user addition via Fedora.
Download your Windows 7 Install ISO from your Microsoft Software Developer Network
The Download, in my case, is en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso
Note the path the to the system eg /home/paul/Downloads/en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso
Plugin a USB key you care nothing about (I threw in the Transcend 64GB USB)
Type ls /dev/disk/by-label/
I see Transcend
Type findfs LABEL=Transcend
I see /dev/sdb1
Type dd if=/home/paul/Downloads/en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso of=/dev/sdb
Note, if you see input/output error, you should redo the command
I then unplugged the USB Key and put it in my Windows Desktop machine to recover it.
Based on the directions from Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Had this issue “Incorrect kit” in the past where I had issues when launching the install with GREP_OPTIONS=’ –color=always’
Fix is to disable via
