selinux is bad because of the tools and the logging. technically it's fine but it sucks to use so people turn it off.

isn't there a lot of hardware that requires ancient windows to run the control software, maybe it's for those guys

just inherited an ancient laptop with only 256 mb of ram and an x86 (instead of amd64) cpu

I think this really qualifies as an embedded system in tyool 2018 when phones have 4x or 8x the memory

on the plus side, it has a com port and a modem interface.

I tried installing lubuntu 12.04 and it choked during bringup, but it was using plymouth so I donít 100% know why it failed but I bet it was the memory.

Is there a *modern 2018* graphical linux distro that will work or do I have to resort to buildroot? Or should I try netbsd?

should I turn it into a single node bbs server?

put it in the electronics recycling bin and move on with your life

not that you should be using MySQL or php at all, but why do you need Linux for either?

ancient code-base and devs bad and can't do cross platform. php is weird in that it 90% works on windows but there's a bunch of edge cases which do strange things in its extensive standard library and the larger ecosystem

edit that said last time I got this code going on windows I was much less experienced, I might have a better time these days

yeah.

the technical merits of rancher are irrelevant. it literally does not matter at all.

amusingly rancher, the vc-funded company, now wants to sell a layer on top of k8s, but, again, none of this will still be maintained in a year

most for-profit efforts in the infrastructure space fail spectacularly

i have met a shitload of the rancher guys and i bear them no ill will. i don't even think their product is bad. there is just zero product/market fit.

wasnt k8s rancher endorsed by google at some point?
i still run an original rancher 'cluster' for some internal stuff. worksforme wontfix

Been dealing with cisco on the periphery since the manager absolutely insisted we have it citing "no one ever got fired for buying cisco" non stop

Oh god is that poo poo the jankiest stuff. Don't have to deal with it directly myself but I constantly hear our contracted network engineer say "We have to open a tac case because this _extremely common use case_ has some bugs"

Even the hardware constantly has issues, power supplies constantly have to be swapped out

we use old cisco for this reason, their poo poo takes 5+ years to get in a working state. someone else can deal with TAC and weird 'edge' cases thanks

ok i'll bite. how are you supposed to manage your list of servers connections? i am talking here about an enterprise environment with more servers than you can memorize and some of them require weird configurations (encoding, ciphers, etc...).

ya it's this. lol if you think memorising IPs or janitoring a text file with vim is going to be sufficient

nobody said anything about memorising ips or using vim

I could see the point of a purpose built tool for editing your ssh_configs that you keep in version control. idk why youíd want it to make the connections as well.

idk think of it like using a browser for all your ssh connections. it handles 'bookmarks' and tab management. it even does tmux-like splitting within the window

selinux's main problem, apart from the learning curve, is that the errors don't show up in journalctl or syslog by default. they're in some other log file and they don't really help you understand what needs changing to allow you to do your Thing. if you google how to use selinux everyone recommends watching a 2 hour youtube video which is really unhelpful too
