Red Hat Fedora Core 3 YUM

YUM is great. Here's the first time I used it to install a package needed by nessus: YUM solves dependencies and everything (see gtk install lower half).

Virus scan Windows using a Linux live CD

[There's been quite a bit of interest in this post and I've expanded on it quite a bit. Please post any comments or questions to help me improve this guide. - Neil] Keith and I have both run into situations where we want to recover a Windows computer by cleaning it up with a Linux Live (bootable) CD distro. This offers several advantages to cleaning up an infected or compromised computer by booting into Windows: It prevents the malware, if it exists, from jumping from the infected computer or partition we are trying to fix to the repair partition or boot medium.If we boot from a CD, there's actually no way to alter the boot medium, since it's read-only. Naturally, we started with Knoppix -- download it here. Installing and scanning with F-Prot is covered in this Knoppix.net discussion thread, Virus Scan from LiveCD, which describes how to install F-Prot from the command line using apt-get. Also, In Knoppix 5.1, you can boot from the Knoppix CD and install F-Prot wi…

1Password on Ubunutu

One of the biggest barriers preventing me from using Ubuntu as my primary desktop OS used to be my favorite password manager, 1Password. I use it on the Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android and couldn't really function without it.

For a while I could use it on any computer running a web browser using the 1Password Anywhere browser only implementation, with Dropbox. But Dropbox no longer supports that option (not sure why, but that's the way it goes).

I was thrilled to discover that 1Password 4.6 for Windows runs quite reliably on Ubuntu via Wine. Even better, the Browser Helper program also runs on Wine, which means I can also use the nifty browser add-ons to auto-fill web logins.

Installation was super easy. I installed Configure Wine from the Ubuntu Software app, and just like that, I could run Windows applications. I then followed the excellent instructions on the Agile Bits support site, Running 1Password for Windows on Linux systems. It worked just as advertised, and now I am …

Joomla 1.5 Directory Status: Writeable

[UPDATED] Joomla 1.5 is acting flaky on one of our installations because the directories are set to ‘unwriteable’. To see the their current state, log in as Super Administrator and go to Help > System Info > Directory Permissions. Elsewhere, it's been suggested that the specified directories must be set to “world-writeable” (777). This works, but it is a very bad idea, since it means anyone can change your files! Not cool. Fixing Security with User and Group Settings To perform these changes, you need shell (command line) access to your server. If you don't have it, you can beg your host to make these changes for you, or switch to a Joomla-friendly host. I'm going to assume that you are using a LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) server because if you're not, then ... well, these instructions should work in principle, but the specifics for your server may be quite different. Here's the issue: you, the FTP user, need full access to your files. So does Joomla, wh…
