HOWTO - 在 Ubuntu/Linux 中關閉 IPv6 支援。

同文分享於 Ubuntu-TW 論壇

因為 IPv4 的耗盡,現在全世界都在推行 IPv6。大家可能都知道,Ubuntu 預設支援 IPv6。
這是很好的事情,但有時候你在所處得環境中根本無法使用 IPv6。

比如說,如果你在某個服務的設定檔中設定了 listen_ip= 並且希望這個服務能自動跑在你所有的網路介面,你可能得不到你想要的。

這是因為,如果這個服務同時支援了 IPv4 和 IPv6 而且沒做好防呆,你的系統會預設自動讓他聽 IPv6 :::80。這就是為什麼即使你的網路是通的,你還是沒法連接到你的服務上。
(當然,也可以增加 Firefox 的查詢速度。)
請注意,只有在你的網路環境不支援 IPv6 時,才推薦從系統上關閉。否則,請支持 IPv6 普及化的推動。

HOWTO - Disable IPv6 support in Ubuntu/Linux.

As many people know, Ubuntu supports IPv6 by default.
It's nice but sometimes you don't have chance to use IPv6 in your network environment.
And maybe, sometimes it brings few more complexity for your system administration tasks.

For example, if you set listen_ip= in a services daemon's config file and hope it can listen to all of the IPv4 IPs of your network interfaces, you might not get what you want.

This is because, if the daemon supports both IPv4 and IPv6, it will listen to IPv6 :::80 by default. That's why you cannot connect to your service even the network link is up.

HOWTO: PPTP: Ubuntu Client connect to Windows VPN Server

The company I work for just starting to use Windows ISA Server (or whatever) in some places.
And also, they use the Windows server to be a VPN server.
As Micro$oft doesn't officially support OpenVPN, and we don't consider IPsec to be used for end users, they decide to use the fu*king insecure PPTP, which I would definitely never wanna try.
That's where my Nightmare starts.

FSCK Gandi's Blog Service Again.

There seems No Way to change my blog's theme/template....

I need 64bit kernel on my 32bit Ubuntu system...

1. I got 4G ram installed on my IBM X61 Laptop, with Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Desktop for i386 installed.
2. I need to use my whole 4G of ram bcoz I always has about 400 tabs opened in my Firefox.

All 32bit system can allocat only 33.5G of memory.

X61 uses Intel chips and VGA chip, which is some kind of shit.
Want to improve the xorg's intel driver, you got to install the latest kernel and driver, with UXA mode enabled.
Then, you might get glxgear score about 700~800fps, nice.

Now here comes the problem.
Kernel's PEM conflicts with UXA, and makes the UXA's advanced GPU memory handling unusable.
So I can only have two choice:
1. Use generic kernel and better graphic performance, but only 3G of ram. But my memory is always full.
2. Use server kernel, got whole 4G of ram, but the glxgear score is only about 220fps. Sucks!

With 64bit system, the kernel can natively support to 64G of ram, so I can use 64bit generic kernel with whole my 4G of ram and enjoy the 800fps glxgear score. That's Great!

BUT, How To Install a AMD64 (64bit) Kernel on my i386 (32bit) System?
I did some google search but still find nothing really helpful...

FSCK GANDI's Blog Service.

I spend about half of an hour of my time to write my blog post and submit.
No error, the input box became blank. It's usual when posting a post successfully.

But when I check my blog, nothing shows.

Back to the dashboard and click some link, I asks me to login again.
WTF?! Where's My Article?! Damned It!!!!
