Hijackers using eggs.

Got this in my mail today… read on,

Hi Everyone,

I want to bring a very serious issue to your attention: 

The hijackers throw eggs at your vehicle, hoping that you then slow down and turn your wipers on. Once you turn your wipers on,
you cannot see anything. This is just what the hi-jackers want. They stand a few meters away, and once you have pulled over,
they attack and take your car. Maybe even your life.

In the event of this happening to you, just keep going. You’re advised to o pen your window slightly, put your head out the window
for vision and just keep driving, until you are safe.

Do you thing this really happens? I bet your wind screen gonna smell like rotten eggs.

Bash Completion on CentOS 5

I use the command line everyday at for work and home. Command switches a part of life but the problem is remembering switches. The man files have always helped and always will continue doing so.

Bash-completion came along to help in this area. It displays a list of a available switched for a specific command by simply hitting the TAB key twice. See screenshots below for clearer picture.

1. Download the rpm . Currently no packages available from the CentOS repos.
#”wget http://www.caliban.org/files/redhat/RPMS/noarch/bash-completion-20060301-1.noarch.rpm”

2. Install the rpm
#”rpm -ivh bash-completion-20060301-1.noarch.rpm”

3. Start a new shell or execute the command below
#”. /etc/bash_completion”

4. Test out your new shell enhancement
#”ls — [TAB][TAB]”

Installing yum fastest mirror plugin on CentOS 5

Being in Malaysia don’t expect the best speeds when running “yum -y update“. I recommend installing the yum fastest mirror plugin to see some better results.

The plugin basically goes through the list of mirrors and determines which mirrors have the best response time. The results are then sorted and stored in a local cached copy.

Installation is simple,

1. # “yum install yum-fastestmirror” for CentOS 5 and “yum -y install yum-plugin-fastestmirror” for previous versions.

2. # “vi /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/fastestmirror.conf” ensure the settings described below and set properly.

[main]
enabled=1
verbose=0
socket_timeout=3
hostfilepath=/var/cache/yum/timedhosts.txt
maxhostfileage=1

3. # “yum -y update” and you should start seeing a difference.

# yum -y update
Loading “fastestmirror” plugin
Loading “installonlyn” plugin
