    LFCS – Creating LDAP on Ubuntu

    I hope you have looked over the previous article to set up OpenLDAP on CentOS 7 system found here. This will build on that article somewhat. We are going to install and configure OpenLDAP on Ubuntu and create an initial database. I did not do some things done here in the previous article, so...

    Bash 02 – Variables and Such

    Within BASH, you can use variables. Variables are names that can represent specific information. If you remember your days in math, specifically some stage of algebra, you may recall variables. There were all the letters of the alphabet, mainly X and Y. In BASH, we can use variable names, not...

    You can also look at the article You can install an older version of Linux on the WII. It is only on an SD card and doesn't overwrite the WII system.

    LFCS – Creating OpenLDAP Server on CentOS 7

    I found that 'gidNumber' on the test user was set to 1002 and not 4000. I changed it. For anyone who is following these exactly, you will need to create another user (test2) and use the proper gidNumber.

    BASH 01 - Script Basics

    Thanks. I'm going to do some custom scripts and hopefully go over it again. I thought about a script that makes an empty script file and sets it it to executable, etc. I learned a long time ago that scripts are extremely handy, but back then they were DOS batch files.

    Big Sur (11.06) on Linux

    You'll probably be able to set aside 4-6 of ram for it. It really needs at least a full 8. You can try with 4, but I doubt it will be worth it. Upgrade your ram to 16 GB or more so you can share more on vbox. You could try to install it to an external drive and dual boot your system. This...

    Big Sur (11.06) on Linux

    Performance isn't bad. Just throw a lot of RAM at it. Have a decent processor. I was using an i3 and it wasn't too bad. Just keep in mind that almost all systems you install in VBox can run straight on the system as the main OS. VBox does not perform any processor emulation like QEMU which...

    RPCS3 - Playstation 3 Emulator

    I know the PlayStation 5 is out, but emulators are usually years behind the console. But for some users, the old games are the ones they love the most. In this article, I’ll cover the installation and setup of RPCS3 and starting a ROM file. The process is a fairly quick 5 steps: Download...

    LFCS – Creating OpenLDAP Server on CentOS 7

    Adding Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to a server is not required for the LFCS exam, but it does require you to authenticate users using LDAP. To be able to perform that function, you need LDAP on your test system. You may not want to know how to do this procedure, but it never...

    Dolphin – Wii Emulator (even the newest versions of Ubuntu)

    With gaming consoles being sought after at an all-time high, most consoles are hard to find or too expensive. Older consoles, such as the Wii, are favorites for some people. For those running Linux, we can use a Wii emulator called Dolphin to play Wii games. The process is a fairly simple one...

    BASH 01 - Script Basics

    This article is the first in a series of articles to cover Bash Scripting. More articles will follow which will build on each other, so make sure you look over each article. It is preferable to read the articles in order (which is why I will number them). Scripting is a very useful ability for...

    Android 9 on Linux

    Best advice, just try and see. It may work ok enough to your satisfaction. Glad you would like to try Android on VBox.
