HP Proliant ML 110 G5, CentOS 7 and Smart Array P400

Recently i had to reinstall my old (but still working) server. I have bought Smart Array P400 instead of my old Smart Array E200, added new harddrives (WD Caviar Black 1TB x 2). And there was an issue regarding that on CentOS 7.x (RHEL 7.x) there is no more drivers for that controller. This was bad for me.

I have started to google the internet and have found a solution for this:

Hi all,

Nothing has been posted recently on my site, but there is a reason – currently I am trying to write three big post’s about very interesting stuff.

So stay tuned

PHP coding at night :)

Yesterday I was programming late at night (4 am) and all the time I had a problem with authentication when switching between web sites.
This morning I looked at the code and found out that I made a simple mistake – a typo in the code.
My advice – do not sit, and code late at night. 😉

ClearOS 6.x MultiWan

Today i have had a problem with 3 external internet connection. What i did at the very beginning of configuring it was that I haven’t choose which interface is the PRIMARY and which is BACKUP.

At the very beginning i have only one external wan so there where no problems but, after some time i have had second and about 3 month ago third external wan.

When one interface was down whole traffic did not know which other interface he had to choose 😉

Today i have set it up properly and voila everything works as planned.

CentOS 7 on HP Compaq 6710b and 16GB micro sd card

Yesterday i have installed CentOS 7 on my old HP Compaq 6710b laptop. I don’t wanted to remove my current OS (ubuntu) because I did’nt know if I find all software which i am using, so i decided to install it on 16GB micro sd card (!).

After install i have done this:

  1. add EPEL repo
  2. add RPMForge repo
  3. add NUX-Dextop repo (for remmina)
  4. add Google repo (for Google Chrome)
  5. add Adobe repo (for flashplayer)

After two days of working on it (Geany, GIMP, OpenVPN, Remmina) I must say that everything is working fine.
