Deluge BitTorrent Client 0.5.9.1 released

Deluge

Not been following Deluge for the past few months. I had to fall back to Windows since my damn Exchange server could not work with Linux.

But anyway, talking about good timing. OpenSUSE 11 is set to be out in 2 days and my office decides to get me a new notebook. A lenovo R61, can’t ask too much but it should work fine with OpenSUSE 11. I’ll finally get to Deluge again.

The current stable release for Deluge is 0.5.9.1. There have been quite a few fixes put in since my last Deluge update. Read the changelog while downloading the latest version.

How to configure a static ip in Linux

This is a newbie question I get quite often.

Configuring your Linux machine to run on a static IP is easy. Tools like system-config-network and netconfig provide you simple GUIs to do this.

For today, I’ll show you how to do this from the command line instead.

Navigate to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

[root@baboo]# cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

Every network interface will have it’s own interface script file. eth0,eth1,eth2 and so on. Vi the ifcfg-eth0 interface script file for interface eth0. Replace the contents of the ifcfg-eth0 file with the parameters below.

[root@baboo]# vi ifcfg-eth0.

DEVICE=eth0
TYPE=Ethernet
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
IPADDR=192.168.0.100
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1
HWADDR=00:0F:22:71:0A:53
USERCTL=no
USERCTL=no

If you want to switch back to DHCP, repeat the steps above and replace the contents of the ifcfg-eth0 file with the parameters below.

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:0F:20:71:0A:50
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
DHCP_HOSTNAME=klmdrpdr01p.klm1.netcel360.com

Restart your interface to apply the changes.

[root@baboo]#ifdown eth0
[root@baboo]#ifup eth0

To update your dns server settings, modify the /etc/resolv.conf.

[root@baboo]# vi /etc/resolv.conf

Replace the contents of the resolv.conf file with the parameters below. The first parameter “search” is your search path followed the nameserver parameters which hold the IPs for your primary and secondary DNS servers.

search example.com
nameserver 192.168.0.5
nameserver 192.168.0.6

That’s it. Drop me a note if you need any help.

XName free DNS hosting service

XName free DNS hosting

Stumbled upon a free DNS hosting service today. XName provides free DNS to all and in return only expects a donation if you like the service. However, if you plan to use XName for commercial purpose then a donation is mandatory.

From a infrastructure standpoint XName provides 3 DNS servers. 1 primary and 2 secondary servers. All DNS records are replicated across all servers so it’s best practice to use all 3 servers when possible to archive the best redundancy possible.

I’m currently working on a mini ISP setup for a client myself. The primary DNS server is in place but for my secondary servers I’m thinking of using XName instead as it’s going to save me a few dollars.

I’ll tell you how it goes.
