Today I read Remove Boot Text On The Raspberry Pi For Noobs:
You will see a single line with all the boot options. Scroll along and change the following making sure not to add any linebreaks:
- Replace console=tty1 to console=tty3 to redirect boot messages to the third console.
- Add loglevel=3 to disable non-critical kernel log messages.
- Add logo.nologo to the end of the line to remove the Raspberry PI logos from displaying
- add disable_splash=1 at the end of the file.
So after having read this I was trying to configure Konsole by editing my config files under
and I couldn’t get my column width config to apply.
The problem was that I was configuring column width with the TerminalCols setting, but the correct setting is actually TerminalColumns, which was difficult to figure out! Not sure how I managed to get that wrong in the first place, but it’s fixed now.
My new Konsole dimension settings are:
I’m trying to figure out how to get my Thunderbird to use Maildir instead of Mbox so my backups are less data intensive.
I opened about:config via Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Config Editor…
Then I changed “mail.serverDefaultStoreContractID” from “@mozilla.org/msgstore/berkeleystore;1” to “@mozilla.org/msgstore/maildirstore;1”.
Everything is easy when you know how!
To update a config file:
$ cp old.conf updated.conf
$ merge -A updated.conf new.conf old.conf
Then edit updated.conf and resolve merge conflicts then deploy updated.conf.
Today Apache complained about SSLCertificateChainFile being deprecated and it told me to use SSLCertificateFile instead.
SSLCertificateFile was already in use with the .crt file. I had to create a new ‘SSLCertificateFile’ by concatenating the .crt file with the ca-bundle, and that fixed the problem:
# cat trust.jj5.net.crt trust.jj5.net.ca-bundle.pem > trust.jj5.net.pem
I have some old web content that works using Server Side Includes and I needed to get it functional on a new web server. I found this article How do I enable server-side includes (SSIs) on my site? which had everything I needed to know.
First I needed to add the content type and output filter to the Apache configuration:
AddType text/html .shtml
AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
Then I needed to add the IncludesNoExec option:
Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
Then I needed to specify the DirectoryIndex:
DirectoryIndex index.shtml index.html
And that was it!
