Migrating to new interface names in Debian 9 Stretch

Upgrading from Debian 8 (Jessie) to Debian 9 (Stretch) will retain the old interface names (eth0, eth1). This was intentionally done to provide a path of least disruption when it came to upgrades. New installations will automatically use the new naming convention.If you’d rather migrate to the new interface names, remove the following file: /etc/systemd/network/99-default.link Then edit /etc/network/interfaces accordingly with the new interface name.

Inability to create new Logstash indexes in Elasticsearch 2.0

If you’ve recently upgraded to Elasticsearch 2.0 and Logstash 2.0, you may find that Logstash is no longer able to create indexes in Elasticsearch, as evidenced by the following error in the Elasticsearch logs. [code lang=text] MapperParsingException[Mapping definition for [geoip] has unsupported parameters:  [path : full]] [/code] This error was due to a bug in the elasticsearch output plugin of Logstash 2.0 which has since been fixed, but your logstash template within Elasticsearch might still contain the old mapping. To remedy the situation, run the following command to prune the old template: [code lang=text] curl -XDELETE http://localhost:9200/_template/logstash?pretty [/code] That should do it.

Fixing the VMware Tools HGFS module under Linux

HGFS is an awesome little tool that lets you expose chosen folders on your Mac to a VM. This allows you to develop on your Mac and test content from your VM without having to first transfer files between your host system and the VM. Problem is the HGFS module in VMware Tools v9.9.2 that comes with the latest versions of VMware Fusion will not compile. You’ll see the following errors: make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64′ CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/backdoor.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/backdoorGcc64.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/bdhandler.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/cpName.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/cpNameLinux.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/cpNameLite.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/dentry.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/dir.o CC [M] /tmp/modconfig-7P0yca/vmhgfs-only/file.o CC …

Zend OPcache PHP package for Debian

[2015-05-05] Updated with 7.0.5 I’ve built a Zend OPcache package for PHP 5.4 that comes with Debian Wheezy due to the simple fact that there just isn’t one out there. The package will place the precompiled PHP extension (amd64) into the right place, and put down a basic config. What you need to know Built with Zend OPcache 7.0.5 on Debian Wheezy (7). The module lives at /usr/lib/php5/20100525/opcache.so The config is in /etc/php5/mods-available/opcache.ini A symlink in /etc/php5/conf.d/20-opcache.ini points to the above config file. Hope you find this handy, and let me know if you find any bugs with the package. …
