Mint.eskimo.com has been upgraded to Tessa 19.1. This is the first in-place upgrade of Mint that has succeeded for me. All previous in place upgrades failed requiring a fresh install. This one went very clean.]]>

<![CDATA[Announcements :: MxLinux – Reinstall :: Author Nanook]]> http://www.eskimo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=452&p=835#p835
I attempted an in place upgrade from MX17 to MX18 and it failed. At first only lightdm would not run, then it refused to mount NFS partitions which is critical here as both the /home directory and /var/mail spook directories are NFS mounted off of other servers. It tells me “Operation Not Permitted” when I try to mount them.

I restored MX17 from backups and tried again, again it broke in the same manner.

Now I am installing from a fresh mx18 ISO image. Hopefully this will work better.]]>

<![CDATA[Announcements :: High Wind Advisory Tonight :: Author Nanook]]> http://www.eskimo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=482&p=866#p866
There is a high wind advisory which predicts wind gusts up to 60 MPH for Shoreline (where I am located). This may cause outages of my telephone and / or Internet connection and thus ability to provide customer service but should not affect online services as the latter are co-located in a robust co-location building with UPS and diesel backup power and dual-fiber connection on two different routes to the Seattle SIX.

If you call and get voice mail, please leave a message with your name, telephone number, user ID, nature of your call, and time frames when return calls are okay and I will return your call as soon as possible.

If the matter is more urgent, please go online and under the support drop down menu choose “Tickets” and generate a ticket. This will generate an e-mail which I can pick up via my tablet if power and / or Internet is out.]]>

<![CDATA[Announcements :: Reboots Early Saturday AM :: Author Nanook]]> http://www.eskimo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=484&p=868#p868
Shortly after midnight Saturday morning, I will be rebooting all of the Intel Linux based servers for a kernel upgrade. Between the actual reboots and checking to make sure NIS and NFS mounts properly re-establish after rebooting, this will probably take about two hours but no one service should be done for more than about ten minutes for this process.

Then after this some servers I will be taking down to make backups. This may take longer for some machines, up to about 45 minutes.]]>

<![CDATA[Applications and Software Requests :: msmtp :: Author Nanook]]> http://www.eskimo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=462&p=846#p846
Per a customer request, msmtp has been installed on ubuntu.eskimo.com. To provide redundancy for times when ubuntu is out of service, it has also been installed on debian.eskimo.com, mint.eskimo.com, julinux.yellow-snow.net, and zorin.eskimo.com, all of which are debian derived machines. It is not at this time installed on mxlinux because it is still in the process of restoration and the package manager is busy.

For those who prefer Redhat platforms, I have also installed msmtp on fedora.eskimo.com, centos7.eskimo.com, scientific7.eskimo.com, opensuse.eskimo.com, centos6.eskimo.com, and scientific.eskimo.com.]]>
