I still have Slackware 11 machines … so I had to recompile the bash

I took a moment to read this nice blog related to shellshock: http://chester.me/archives/2014/09/building-bash-from-source-shellshock-mitigation/
So in short what I did at my Slackware 11 machines:

How to relabel two identical TOSHIBA 1Tb USB 3.0 disks in a view to be auto mounted properly at XBMC

September 19, 2014 Leave a comment

I have two identical 1TB Toshiba USB 3.0 disks, and when I attach them to my RaspberryPI running XBMC, they appear as identical TOSHIBA EXT mounts at the GUI

After searching at the udev rules, I decided just to rename the partitions …

root@raspbmc:[Fri Sep 19 19:31:40][~]$ umount /media/TOSHIBA\ EXT

Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug) enable client OpenVPN service on boot

August 21, 2014 Leave a comment

In short, I had to deal with the Fedora EVIL EVIL EVIL !!! Systemd
I found my openvpn startup script useless ..
Managed to set the VPN at the Network Manager just loading the openvpn config file, but I wanted to be started on boot … because out of the blue my Fedora 20 Gnome boot hanged on the blue logo !!! This is another story to be told.

Anyway, back to the OpenVPN issue, the steps to do make it start on boot, following the instructions at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Openvpn

1. Set the keys and the config file at /etc/openvpn

root@outoutdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:30:06][~]$ cd /etc/openvpn/
root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:30:10][/etc/openvpn]$ ls
keys  outdragkh.client.conf

2. Fix selinux context of the config files :

root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:30:10][/etc/openvpn]$  restorecon -Rv /etc/openvp

3. Check the general openvpn service file:

root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:30:32][/etc/openvpn]$ ls /lib/systemd/system/openvpn\@.service
/lib/systemd/system/openvpn@.service
root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:30:51][/etc/openvpn]$ cat /lib/systemd/system/openvpn\@.service
[Unit]
Description=OpenVPN Robust And Highly Flexible Tunneling Application On %I
After=syslog.target network.target

[Service]
PrivateTmp=true
Type=forking
PIDFile=/var/run/openvpn/%i.pid
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/openvpn --daemon --writepid /var/run/openvpn/%i.pid --cd /etc/openvpn/ --config %i.conf

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

4. Set the systemd start scripts for the outoutdragkh.client.conf

root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:30:55][/etc/openvpn]$ ln -s /lib/systemd/system/openvpn\@.service /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/openvpn\@outdragkh.client.service
root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:32:04][/etc/openvpn]$ ls /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/openvpn@outdragkh.client.service 
/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/openvpn@outdragkh.client.service

5. Enable the dragkh OpenVPN service

root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:32:12][/etc/openvpn]$ systemctl -f enable openvpn@outdragkh.client.service
rm '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/openvpn@outdragkh.client.service'
ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/openvpn@.service' '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/openvpn@outdragkh.client.service'

6. Start the dragkh OpenVPN service

root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:32:30][/etc/openvpn]$ systemctl start openvpn@outdragkh.client.service 
root@outdragkh.f20:[Thu Aug 21 01:32:49][/etc/openvpn]$ systemctl status openvpn@outdragkh.client.service 
openvpn@outdragkh.client.service - OpenVPN Robust And Highly Flexible Tunneling Application On outdragkh.client

   CGroup: /system.slice/system-openvpn.slice/openvpn@outdragkh.client.service

May 11, 2014 2 comments

Recently I had issues with my 32 inch LCD LG TV /32LG5600/. I was about to order new TV … :)
I read some posts like from the Google search Google Search LG TV popping up menu on screen and disappearing and I decided to disable the TV set side buttons.
All the procedure took 10 minutes, including the clean up.

Compile at CentOS 6.5 the new MySQL webscalesql-5.6.17 branch by Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and Twitter

March 31, 2014 Leave a comment

http://webscalesql.org/

yeah , big buzz around that one :)

So I decided to check the install process:

1. Clone the repo from

root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 11:37:11][~]$ cd /opt/
root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 11:37:15][/opt]$ mkdir installs
root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 11:37:17][/opt]$ cd installs/
root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 11:37:19][/opt/installs]$ git clone https://github.com/webscalesql/webscalesql-5.6.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /opt/installs/webscalesql-5.6/.git/
remote: Counting objects: 30397, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (12678/12678), done.
remote: Total 30397 (delta 18716), reused 27620 (delta 16936)
Receiving objects: 100% (30397/30397), 47.99 MiB | 460 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (18716/18716), done.

2. Update the CentOs install just in case before to play with it:

root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 11:40:35][/opt/installs]$ yum update -y 

3. Compile it :
Note : The final part of the prompt here “[webscalesql-5.6.17]” id the actual git branch version.

root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 12:23:22][/opt/installs/webscalesql-5.6] [webscalesql-5.6.17]$ cmake . -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release -DENABLE_DOWNLOADS=1
-bash: cmake: command not found

3.1 No Cmake ? The CentOS install was done without cmake etc dev tools as at production they are not needed.
Now, we need it: Install cmake

root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 12:23:34][/opt/installs/webscalesql-5.6] [webscalesql-5.6.17]$ yum install cmake -y 
....
Installed:

3.2 Try to compile it again?

root@webscalesql-5.6.clean:[Mon Mar 31 12:24:20][/opt/installs/webscalesql-5.6] [webscalesql-5.6.17]$ cmake . -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release -DENABLE_DOWNLOADS=1

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy
support-files/mysql.server to the right place for your system

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MySQL root USER !
To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:

  /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
  /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h webscalesql-5.6.clean password 'new-password'

Alternatively you can run:

  /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_secure_installation

which will also give you the option of removing the test
databases and anonymous user created by default.  This is
strongly recommended for production servers.

See the manual for more instructions.

You can start the MySQL daemon with:

  cd . ; /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe &

You can test the MySQL daemon with mysql-test-run.pl

  cd mysql-test ; perl mysql-test-run.pl

Please report any problems at http://bugs.mysql.com/

The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at

Support MySQL by buying support/licenses at http://shop.mysql.com

New default config file was created as /usr/local/mysql/my.cnf and
will be used by default by the server when you start it.
You may edit this file to change server settings

WARNING: Default config file /etc/my.cnf exists on the system
This file will be read by default by the MySQL server
If you do not want to use this, either remove it, or use the
--defaults-file argument to mysqld_safe when starting the server

Connect MySQL to sqlite3 database or to flat txt file via CONNECT engine of MariaDB 10.0.7 on Fedora/CentOS

January 31, 2014 Leave a comment

You might don’t know that, but the MariaDB engines are amazing ..
More info you can find here:
https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-storage-engines/

I was teased by CONNECT engine : https://mariadb.com/kb/en/connect/

What is good for ? Well, I leave that to your imagination, as you could have MariaDB as a spider connected and managing InnoDB tables, flat files, MS ACCESS databases, MS Excel files … all that in same time.
So how to use it?
By the documentation :
1. https://mariadb.com/kb/en/loading-the-connect-handler/
check if there is CONNECT already installed, if not, install it:

Now, sqlite3
UnixODBC was installed along with the MariaDB-connect-engine package, but I was not a able to find SQLite UnixODBC driver installed. Neither I was able to get if from the Fedora repos.
Checking for the http://www.unixodbc.org/drivers.html I ended up with compiling the SQLite ODBC Driver from http://www.ch-werner.de/sqliteodbc/

The instructions are good enough for me:
1. get the source from

$ wget http://www.ch-werner.de/sqliteodbc/sqliteodbc-0.996.tar.gz

2. Untar it :

$ tar xvf sqliteodbc-0.996.tar.gz

3. go to the source directory:

$ cd sqliteodbc-0.996

4. compile it

$ ./configure
..
...
configure: WARNING: SQLite4 header file and source not found
configure: error: No usable SQLite header/library on this system

4.1 In case you get the No usable SQLite header/library error, installs the sqlite-devel package

$ yum install sqlite-devel
sqlite-devel.x86_64 0:3.6.20-1.el6 will be installed

4.2 run configure again

$ ./configure
..
...
checking for ODBC headers and libraries... no
configure: error: ODBC header files and/or libraries not found

4.3 In case you get error: ODBC header files and/or libraries not found, install the unixODBC-devel package:

$ yum install unixODBC-devel
Package unixODBC-devel.x86_64 0:2.2.14-12.el6_3 will be installed

4.4 run configure again:

$ ./configure
make 
make install

5. Check the installed ODBC drivers:

$ odbcinst -q -d
[PostgreSQL]
[MySQL]
$ cat /etc/odbcinst.ini
# Example driver definitions

# Driver from the postgresql-odbc package
# Setup from the unixODBC package
[PostgreSQL]
Description     = ODBC for PostgreSQL
Driver          = /usr/lib/psqlodbc.so
Setup           = /usr/lib/libodbcpsqlS.so
Driver64        = /usr/lib64/psqlodbc.so
Setup64         = /usr/lib64/libodbcpsqlS.so
FileUsage       = 1


# Driver from the mysql-connector-odbc package
# Setup from the unixODBC package
[MySQL]
Description     = ODBC for MySQL
Driver          = /usr/lib/libmyodbc5.so
Setup           = /usr/lib/libodbcmyS.so
Driver64        = /usr/lib64/libmyodbc5.so
Setup64         = /usr/lib64/libodbcmyS.so
FileUsage       = 1

6. Install the sqlite3 odbc driver:

$ nano /etc/odbcinst.ini
# Example driver definitions

# Driver from the postgresql-odbc package
# Setup from the unixODBC package
[PostgreSQL]
Description     = ODBC for PostgreSQL
Driver          = /usr/lib/psqlodbc.so
Setup           = /usr/lib/libodbcpsqlS.so
Driver64        = /usr/lib64/psqlodbc.so
Setup64         = /usr/lib64/libodbcpsqlS.so
FileUsage       = 1


# Driver from the mysql-connector-odbc package
# Setup from the unixODBC package
[MySQL]
Description     = ODBC for MySQL
Driver          = /usr/lib/libmyodbc5.so
Setup           = /usr/lib/libodbcmyS.so
Driver64        = /usr/lib64/libmyodbc5.so
Setup64         = /usr/lib64/libodbcmyS.so
FileUsage       = 1

[SQLite]
Description=SQLite ODBC Driver
Driver=/usr/local/lib/libsqliteodbc.so
Setup=/usr/local/lib/libsqliteodbc.so
Threading=2
 
$ odbcinst -q -d
[PostgreSQL]
[MySQL]
[SQLite]

So the SQLite ODBC driver was installed.

In a view to trace the CONNECT engine , its good to create connect.ini file in the mysql directory

$ cat /var/lib/mysql/connect.ini 
[CONNECT]
Trace=2

The CONNECT engine errors will be in the mysql error.log, in my case mariadb-10.0.7.err

How to create a MySQL table using sqlite3 database?
create the sqlite3 table :

root@mariadb-10.0.7:[Wed Jan 29 10:57:39][/usr/lib64/mysql]$ sqlite3 maria-sqlite3.db
SQLite version 3.6.20
Enter ".help" for instructions
Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
sqlite> CREATE TABLE DEPARTMENT(
   ...>     ID INT PRIMARY KEY      NOT NULL,
   ...>     DEPT           CHAR(50) NOT NULL,
   ...>     EMP_ID         INT      NOT NULL
   ...>  );
sqlite> .tables
DEPARTMENT
sqlite> insert into DEPARTMENT (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values(1,'sales',1);
sqlite> insert into DEPARTMENT (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values(2,'sales',2);
sqlite> insert into DEPARTMENT (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values(3,'sales',3);
sqlite> insert into DEPARTMENT (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values(4,'marketing',4);
sqlite> insert into DEPARTMENT (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values(5,'marketing',5);

note,  its in /usr/lib64/mysql
its good to place the database in a place where the mysql user can read/write it.

In case you have the CONNECT engine trace set to 2, you will see in the mysql error log something like:

S1000: [unixODBC][SQLite]attempt to write a readonly database (8), Native=8
ODBC CloseDB: closing my_dept

In case you get read only table :

mysql root@mariadb-10.0.7:[Wed Jan 29 11:09:51 2014][sqlite3]> insert into my_dept (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values(6,'IT-DBA',6);
ERROR 1296 (HY000): Got error 122 '[unixODBC][SQLite]attempt to write a readonly database (8)' from CONNECT

It seems you have your SQLite db in a folder where your database user /mysql/ must have write permissions,but does not.
Most probably you have selinux activated.
How to fix that without disabling the selinux? The best way is move the SQLite db file to the mysql data directory : /var/lib/mysql/, or to create a separated directory where mysql shell user has write permissions.

mysql root@mariadb-10.0.6:[Fri Jan 31 12:06:54 2014][sqlite3]> insert into my_dept (ID,DEPT,EMP_ID) values (6,'mysql',6);
ERROR 1296 (HY000): Got error 122 '[unixODBC][SQLite]attempt to write a readonly database (8)' from CONNECT
mysql root@mariadb-10.0.6:[Fri Jan 31 12:07:27 2014][sqlite3]> drop table my_dept;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Move the db file to MySQL data directory :

root@mariadb-10.0.6:[Fri Jan 31 12:09:15][/var/lib/mysql]$ cp -rp /tmp/maria-sqlite3.db  ./
mysql root@mariadb-10.0.6:[Fri Jan 31 12:08:17 2014][sqlite3]> create table my_dept_new  engine=CONNECT table_type=ODBC tabname='DEPARTMENT'  Connection='Driver=SQLite;Database=/var/lib/mysql/maria-sqlite3.db;version=3;';
