Below is how to replace the battery on the Opple remote. It’s not as easy as it is with the others, but it’s still pretty simple. You can use a spudger or a flat head screw driver First remove the middle key with the spudger, if you push down on one of the sides it makes it easier to lift the other Now remove the screw from the middle. Now remove the top button.
I recnetly decided to switch to Debian full time for my personal laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 3), after using it for a week or so I noticed that when I closed the lid it would die after less than a day. After some googleing I found the answer and they are below. I also noticed that the machine never seemed to wake up like it did on Windows (just open it and it should come alive), after switching over to deep_sleep it fixed that issue.
I was having issues finding the correct way to add the remaining free space to the last partition (afraid to do so since it was on a live machine). I was finally able to figure it out. Use this to see free space parted /dev/sdX print free Then this to expand parted /dev/sdX (parted) resizepart Partition number? ENTER NUMBER FROM ABOVE THAT HAS THE LVM End? [1075MB]? 100% (parted) q Then now since this was on a server that uses LVM you have to resize the PV
This is how to use the Xiaomi Aqara Wireless Double Button without the Xiaomi Home Hub (A ZIGBEE STICK IS STILL REQUIRED) using ZHA in Home Assistant. Other devices just work without any hard to find IDs. ADD DEVICE TO ZHA Go to “Configuration” Then “ZHA” Hit “Add Devices” Hold down left switch while lights are blinking until the left light blinks and stops You can now name your button and hit the back button in the upper left hand corner
This works if you’re having PiHole hand out DHCP on your network. nano /etc/dnsmasq.d/05-no-pihole-dhcp.conf Now we need to add the following to the file. You can change 220.127.116.11 to anything you want # Assign alternate DNS for select hosts # Set Specific Clients to be affected dhcp-mac=set:altdns,00:00:00:00:00:00 #Device 1 dhcp-mac=set:altdns,00:00:00:00:00:00 #Device 2 # Set Alternate DNS dhcp-option=tag:altdns,option:dns-server,18.104.22.168
I just learned that you can remote control terminal sessions. They call it shadowing. I’ve only done it on Windows Server 2012 r2, but was super easy. You just need to open server manager, go to remote desktop services, then collections, then QuickSessionsCollections. Then you’ll see the connections in the upper right hand corner. Once you find the one you want you right click on the session and hit Shadow. By default this will ask the user to allow, if you want to override that and allows allow you can do the following group policy change.
I learned about XCP-NG not to log ago and love it. It’s great and easy to use. My only issue is I guess on newer versions of Windows 10/Server 2019 they were having freezing issues. I had the issue with Windows 10. I just went with Windows 7 VMs for what I needed until they get the problem worked out. XCP-NG works great with Linux. Here are some useful commands I’ve found.

Not my file, but Comptia made a really nice roadmap layout. Thought it would be nice to post. Here’s the direct LINK [pdf id=556]
I noticed that when trying to mount NFS upon boot it wasn’t working. After it was booted up I could run “mount -a” and everything would come up. After some googling I learned you can add “_netdev” to the mount options in /etc/fstab and it works great. I’ve tested this on Debian and CentOS
I found this HERE. I don’t take credit I just wanted to host the zip just in case their site went down for some reason. Here is my LINK. I tried to get it to work, but it wouldn’t recognize that the button was plugged in :-( If you wanted to use it on Linux it looks like there is a node package for it at LINK.
Disable ADMIN user Before doing this bit you may wish to check that the new user you added works for everything you need it to. Those things might include: ssh to [email protected] Log in on web interface at https://192.168.1.22/ Various ipmitool commands like querying power status:$ ipmitool -I lanplus -H 192.168.1.22 -U somename -a power status Password: Chassis power is on If all of that is okay then you can disable ADMIN:
If using Debian 10 you’ll have to use the github VSL. I just started using it, I will update if there’s issues. HERE’S the link. Now we need to make the module be loaded. mkdir /lib/modules/4.19.0-10-amd64/kernel/drivers/iomem cd root/usr/src/iomemory-vsl-3.2.16 cp iomemory-vsl.ko /lib/modules/4.19.0-10-amd64/kernel/drivers/iomem Now we need to add it to be loaded on bootup nano /etc/modules Paste iomemory_vsl into the /etc/modules file. `` First go to LINK and download the needed items I also have a copy that I downloaded HERE.
When cloning using clonezilla I notice sometimes if the PC was using UEFI it wouldn’t clone. After some googleing I was able to find a post that mentioned you had to manually copy over the bootloader. It is very simple to do. Once booted into CloneZilla you enter shell instead of the normal start. Once in the shell you’re going to become root. sudo su. Once you’re root you going to type the following command.
Enter enable mode: en Enter Global Config (use this mode for 99% of the configuration, must be in enable mode): conf t Set port back to default default int G0/4 Encrypts all passwords on the device: service password-encryption Configure enable password (or secret in this case): enable secret ________ Create user with highest privilege: username _____ priv 15 password ______ Generate RSA key for SSH (needed if you plan to use SSH):
Over the past couple days I’ve been trying to get a Cisco 3560 with VLANs to work. Finally I was able to get it working. This is my first blog post FYI it’s not the most detailed. It’s just info on what I’ve learned. This is not the best post to read if you have no technical knowledge. If you have some you should be able to work your way thru my horrible instructions.
