In response to: Finding files that have not been added to ClearCase

Chronos [Visitor]

Original blog post is pretty old so I would expect that author just thought in that time that CC is best VCS for him. But further comments are from 2014 and such opinion is still there?
I have to say that CC is no way best VCS. In my opinion it is one of the worst from those which I know. I tried Subversion, CVS, Git, Bazaar, Mercurial.
Main problem with CC is that it is file centric. There are several concepts of VCS but file centric concept is pretty old and outdated. In oposite Subversion and most of todays advanced VCSs are changeset or snapshot oriented and allow important feature called atomic commits. Without atomic commits and revision numbers/hashes you can determine state of files in any point of time. So in CC and CVS you are heavily dependent on labels/tags. Without tags you can’t take exact snapshots. You can just say that you want files from some time but you can’t specify exact time, maybe in days or seconds. Problem is that without atomic commit if multiple persons do check-ins/merge in same time then inconsistency could arise. Also you can’t specify one commit log for entire commit. In CC check-in comments are copied to multiple checked-in files. So thats one problem.

But there so many other difficulties with CC like slow performance for huge VOBs, replication/mastership, slow performance with high network latency, read only files in dynamic view need to be checkouted, slow and complicated snapshots, slow license server check, and more. Long article could be written to this topic.

And finally there are Views. They are like fire, good helper but a bad master. Views are terrible concept. Consequence is that if you want give somebody information how to download exact branch or label then you need to give him a config spec view file. That’s insane. In git you can give just single commit hash or branch name, In subversion you can provide him revision number or just direct URL for checkout. In CC? You need to provide sever lines long config spec.

And related to view is also branches which in CC is pretty weird concept. You can’t checkout or simply work on some branch. You need to set properly config spec with some crazy rules like “element * …\branch_name\LATEST” which means that files can be \branch1\branch_name or \branch1\branch2\branch_name and so on. So no fixed absolute name for branch. Also if branch is created from different branch then all files may not be linked to branch so you need also “element * label_name” where label_name is label for files in state where branch was created. Some CC usage may depend on your internal company processes. But just that this mess is possible is mark of bad VCS system.

I think entire book can be written about problems with ClearCase. So if you think that this is the best versioning tool from those you tried then something is wrong in this universe. CC have pros and cons. Everybody have different life experiences and use case for VCS. But CC is used mostly in big corporations for historic reasons and because product is made by IBM/Rational.

In response to: Configuring LS_COLORS

Kevin [Visitor]

In Ubuntu 15.10 (and perhaps in the Debian it is derived from), the setup is already in place. You just have to create the desired color scheme in your home directory as ~/.dircolors. The other locations mentioned above are not supported out of the box. The relevant stanza in the provided .bashrc is (in part):

if [ -x /usr/bin/dircolors ]; then
test -r ~/.dircolors && eval "$(dircolors -b ~/.dircolors)" || eval "$(dircolors -b)";
alias ls='ls --color=auto';

In response to: Posix PHP commands not working under CentOS 7

MoonPoint [Visitor]

Thanks. I was trying to use posix_geteuid and posix_getpwuid(posix_geteuid()) to determine the account under which PHP was running on several systems. They worked with one hosting account, but not on two CentOS 7 systems, though when I checked on the existence of the functions with if (function_exists('posix_geteuid')); { print "Function posix_geteuid exists"; } and if (function_exists('posix_getpwuid')); { print "Function posix_getpwuid exists"; } the functions seemed to exist on the system. Even though I was able to use other methods to determine the account under which PHP was running (http://support.moonpoint.com/languages/php/running_under_acct.php), I spent a lot of time trying to understand why the POSIX functions weren’t working before finding this article.

Unfortunately, indeed this tutorial provides a solution that doesn’t solve what it claims to do.

It is really a shame that the ASA can’t give a fixed IP to a MAC address, something most routers in the price range of 30 dollar can already do…

This tutorial is useless because entering a mac adderess associated to an IP at the ARP table wont make DHCP assign that IP to that specific MAC address.

MARR, IF I use static IPs on those Devices, DHCP will have no influence on those IPs settings! ASA still lacks this functionality!

In response to: Configuring a permanant DHCP reservation on a Cisco ASA/PIX

This will work,but you have to set you dhcp scope high and give static IP addresses to your devices from below the dhcp scope. For example:

dhcpd address 192.168.1.50-192.168.1.100 inside

Give your routers, switches, and host static IP addresses in the range of:
192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.49

arp inside 192.168.1.10 0c1b.ae43.bd21
arp inside 192.168.1.11 0c1b.ae43.bd22
arp inside 192.168.1.12 0c1b.ae43.bd23
etc……

However, I have to get the pagesize for each pdf file and then move it to the landscape folder or portrait folder depending if height>width. how do I close the inputstream without touching the file and expect the result?

Chuck [Visitor]

Yes, Andrew’s group method is the easiest way to get everyone access to a calendar all at once. Google’s stupid “Share this calendar with everyone in the organization” checkbox had me convinced I was doing something wrong for months!

HOWEVER, adding a NEW member to the group does NOT automatically give them access to the calendar - they still have to be given the link somehow.

In response to: Setting up company wide group calendars in Google Apps

dwain [Visitor]

Finally, with Andrews help and a little digging, I got the shared calendar with the ability to edit for all members.

A group for the organization needs to be created with all members of the organization accepting an invitation to be in the group.

The administrator of the group needs to create the calendar in My Calendars, and in the sharing section “Share with specific people", enter the email address for the group. This is generally going to be if the form of the groupname at the domain name. Before you proceed, change the permissions to allow anyone in the group to do whatever you want them to be able to do to the calendar.

The individual members of the organization will automatically receive an email inviting them to create the calendar. It will be created in the Other Calendars section, but will be able to be selected as an editable calendar if they want to edit or create events.

Not really much to it, but this sure is a confusing task to find information on.

# Enable colors for ls, etc, prefering user’s dircolors
if type -P dircolors >/dev/null ; then
if [[ -f “$XDG_HOME_CONFIG/bash/dircolors” ]] ; then
eval $(dircolors -b “$XDG_HOME_CONFIG/bash/dircolors")
elif [[ -f ~/.dircolors ]] ; then
eval $(dircolors -b ~/.dircolors)
elif [[ -f /etc/DIR_COLORS ]] ;
then
eval $(dircolors -b /etc/DIR_COLORS)

There is a much BETTER and easier way to do this.

In addition to the steps above, create a group with all the users you want (or in my case all the users in our entire org).

Then on the sharing options of the calendar add that GROUP with write permissions. Everyone gets an email automatically with a link to the calendar and everyone by default has the permissions you set for the group.

Very nice tutorial and exactly what I need, BUT it doesn’t work. At least with my equipment.
I have done everything as stated, but when the iPhone connects to the Net, it gets another IP Address from the Pool from the ASA. When I look at the ARP Table the I discover both entrys with the same MAC Address.
So i think what Ryan wrote is true….that configuration here is NO “DHCP Reservation".
If I’m wrong, any suggestion is highly appreciated, because I’m NO Cisco Wizard.

Ive been looking for this solution myself.

test config:
arp inside 10.6.0.75 001b.38be.c7fa
dhcpd address 10.6.0.70-10.6.0.80 inside

connect the laptop and look at dhcp binding and arp:
show dhcpd binding
IP address Client Identifier

10.6.0.70 0100.1b38.bec7.fa

show arp
inside 10.6.0.70 001b.38be.c7fa 517
inside 10.6.0.75 001b.38be.c7fa -

the firewall shows the reserved arp but still issues the laptop the first ip from the dhcp pool.
