The AWS tools are approaching EPEL7

Posted on January 27, 2016

A couple of weeks ago, I’ve announced the availability of AWS tools for Fedora. I’m very happy to announce that today they are available in the EPEL7 repository as well. The Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository is an RPM repository managed by the Fedora community that creates, maintains, and manages a high quality set of additional packages for Enterprise Linux, including, but not limited to, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS, Scientific Linux (SL), and Oracle Linux (OL).

Innotop 1.10.0-0.3

Posted on December 22, 2015

Innotop is a tool that allows you to control the status of a MySQL/MariaDB database. It is widely used since it shows the data with an interface very similar to the top one. Lately it’s development has slowed down, but small changes do come regularly. The biggest change this time (compared to the 1.10.0-0.2 version) is the addition of a patch that allows innotop to work properly with MariaDB 10.1 and 10.

Innotop fixed for MariaDB 10

Posted on August 24, 2014

One of my clients asked me to upgrade their MySQL 5.1 installation to MariaDB 10. This caused some problems mainly due to the fact that many MySQL clients are not MariaDB 10 ready. An example of a MySQL client not yet ready for MariaDB 10 is Innotop. Innotop is a widely used client for MySQL/MariaDB that shows you an interface similar to the “top” Unix command. To solve this, I found a patch online and, after some testing, I’ve added it to the Fedora package.

How to send an e-mail with attachment from the command line

Posted on January 3, 2013

Have you ever had to develop a script in UNIX that has to send an email? If you have, probably you have used the “mail” function since this program is the standard program to send e-mails in UNIX environments if you are using the CLI (Command Line Interface). The manual for mail reports this as mail usage prototype: mail -r [sender] -s [subject] receiver-1[,receiver-2,...,receiver-n] < [File with the body] I think all the parameters are pretty straightforward except the “File with the body” one.

Linux Pocket Guide by Daniel J. Barrett, O'Reilly

Posted on April 19, 2012

This is one of my favorite book about Linux. Probably is the most favorite one. In the last years I’ve been looking for a book that was like a printed man with some more explanation and a rigid order. This book does all this plus something more (that I’d rather not having). I really liked the professional to professional user, since otherwise it would be much bigger and boring for pro users.
