  • Some work on a VyOS image with Let’s Encrypt certs

    I put some packages together this weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve debuilt anything officially. libffi-platypus-perl libalien-base-perl libalien-ffi-perl libffi-checklib-perl libshell-config-generate-perl libshell-guess-perl The plan is to build a binding to the libgnutls.so.30 API. The certtool CSR (REQ) generation interface does not allow me to create a CRL with “not critical” attributes set on purposes. Maybe […]

  • AD Physical to Virtual conversion… Continued!

    So I wasn’t able to complete the earlier attempt to boot the VM. Something to do with the SATA backplane not having enough juice to keep both my 6-disk array and the w2k8 disk online at the same time. I had to dd the contents off of the w2k8 disk and send it to the […]

  • AoE root for KVM guests

    Intro So. I’m trying to get familiar with libvirt and friends. To this end, I’ve set up a Lucid virtual machine booting from PXE into an initrd environment which does a pivot_root to an AoE block device. The #virt channel on irc.oftc.net told me that in order to have libvirt provide PXE capability, I would […]
