Some MS blog posting software. Let’s see what this looks like when i’m done.

Fix Firefox v2.0 tabs


Go to about:config in the URL

Remove close button on each tab: set browser.tabs.closeButtons to 3

View ALL tabs on tab bar (removes arrow): set browser.tabs.tabMinWidth to 0

search all man pages for a given command


apropos command

The apropos command searches a set of database files containing short descriptions of system commands for keywords and displays the result on the standard output.
apropos oneword
apropos “string or phrase”

Search command / functions related to compare operation:
$ apropos compare

Search command to remove a file:
$ apropos “remove file”

rm (1) – remove files or directorie
man -K

-K option use to search for the specified string in all man pages.
man -K oneword
man -K “string or phrase”

Search all man pages for fopen word:
$ man -K “fopen”

/usr/share/man/en/man3/fclose.3.gz? [ynq]

Type y to open/display man page, n to continue search, q to Quit search.

This is probably very slow! It helps to specify a section (1-7).
$ man 3 -K “open”

Above commands also works with UNIX and *BSD oses.

Cyrus and ubuntu edgy :(


The default Cyrus2.2 package in Ubuntu Edgy does not work. There is a dependency issue. This only took me three days to finally figure out why the crap wasn’t working. But, due to the comments posted on the bug on launchpad, I was able to fix the problem here at home.

As taken from the comments of Daniel Givens:

1. Download the attached control patch file which simply changes the build-depends from libdb4.3-dev to libdb4.4-dev.   Patch file here.

2. Get the cyrus-imapd-2.2 source

# apt-get source cyrus-imapd-2.2

The source will be downloaded and expanded in your current working directory

3. Get the build dependencies

# apt-get build-dep cyrus-imapd-2.2
# apt-get install libdb4.4-dev fakeroot

Since the current source lists libdb4.3-dev as a build dependency, we need to get libdb4.4-dev ourselves. Fakeroot is also needed to properly build the package.

4. Apply the control patch

# patch -p0 < control.diff

5. Build the new packages

# cd cyrus-imapd-2.2-2.2.13/
# dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b

Packages will be built and placed in the parent directory

6. Install the packages

# cd ..
# dpkg -i cyrus*.deb

And because i was continually trying to create accounts in the sasl database, I removed my old /etc/sasldb2 file and did a “saslpasswd2 -c cyrus” to recreate it.

SMB fyi


SMB mounted filesystems may not be “chmod”able. Set permissions and ownership on mount line via fmask, dmask uid, gid.

exchange / outlook cached mode info


– 9 out of 10 times cached mode is the way to go
– Ensure your OST files are not being cached or are part of a roaming profile, they can become corrupted and cause headaches
– Most OST issues can be solved by changing from cached mode, to non-cached mode, run Outlook for a while, then change back to cached mode. Worst case, delete the OST but this can be bad if the Exchange server is over a WAN link
– #1 issue for me, the Offline Address Book is only built at midnight and downloaded once per day by Outlook. You can schedule the OAL to update more often, but users will usually always see a lag between when new users are provisioned and they are seen in the GAL. There is a registry hack to make users always use the online GAL instead of the OAB, but this is NOT recommended for laptop users.
– Terminal Servers and of course Citrix servers do not use cached mode if Office was installed after TS was changed to application mode. If you see cached mode on a TS in app mode, do not use it.

If you make frequent changes to the Offline Address Book, you may want to modify the way that Outlook 2003 computers on your network access the Address Book. You can disable the downloading of the Offline Address Book and force the Outlook 2003 computers to use the online Global Address List when they use Cached Exchange Mode.

To do this, add the following registry value to the Outlook 2003 computers:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Ou tlook\Cached Mode
Parameter: DownloadOAB
Value: 0

By using the value 0 (zero), the Offline Address Book is not downloaded automatically, and Outlook must contact the online Global Address List. For additional information about the values for the DownloadOAB registry parameter, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
KB823580. How to configure how the Offline Address Book is downloaded when you use Outlook 2003 in Cached Exchange Mode
As per this article, if Offline Address Book (.oab) files were previously downloaded and were associated with a MAPI profile for Outlook, this setting will not have the correct effect. To use this setting, you must set the registry value, remove any .oab files from the local computer, and then synchronize.

HOWTO: screen command quickstart


Screen is a window manager for unix shells. It’s useful when logged in to a remote server because it allows you to have more than one shell running through the same terminal window. So you don’t have to log in multiple times through SSH to, for example, run a long running command in one shell and continue working in another.

This is just a quick note to help remember the most common commands. For more information see man screen.

Getting in and out
Start screen
Type screen in the terminal
Detach from a screen session (session remains open)
Ctrl+a d
Reattach to an open screen session
screen -D -R
Quit screen completely (session closed)
Ctrl+a Ctrl+\

Controlling windows
Create a new window with a shell and switch to it:
Ctrl+a c
List currently open windows for selection:
Ctrl+a ”
Close current window:
Ctrl+a k

Controlling Regions

Using regions allows you to display more than one shell on your terminal.
Split the current region into 2 new ones (note: new region will be blank, you need to switch to it then select a window to display in it):
Ctrl+a S
Switch focus to the next region:
Ctrl+a TAB
Remove the current region:
Ctrl+a X

That should be enough to get started.
