IP Traffic Monitor already listening on eth0

If you get this “IP Traffic Monitor already listening on eth0” error when you are trying to use iptraf:

IP Traffic Monitor already listening on eth0

IP Traffic Monitor already listening on eth0

Or any other interface like eth1 or wlan0 and so on…

Be sure that you don’t have any iptraf applications running:

ps ax|grep iptraf

and after that you should only see line with “grep iptraf” but no iptraf applications.

After that remove all files from /var/run/iptraf/ and after that start iptraf
again and it should work:

root@NSA:/# cd /var/run/iptraf/
root@NSA:/var/run/iptraf# rm *

Apple Mac OS X and locked files

I had a client whos Microsoft Windows 7 Fujitsu laptop I had to fix.

I used Hiren’s BootCD bootable Linux rescue CD to copy files from that laptop to my clients external harddrive and everything when without a problems.

When I started to move files from that external harddrive to my iMac (Actually to my drobo) I noticed that some (for some reason not all the files on that directory because) files were
locked so I could not move those files… I didn’t want to go thru all the files using graphical user interface so I had to find way to fix those files using command line.

So after a little bit searching I noticed that I can use chflags command to do what I wanted so I started terminal and said:

sudo chflags -R nouchg /Volumes/Drobo/UnCheck

That unlocked all the files from /Volumes/Drobo/UnCheck directory which was exactly what I wanted to do =) I had to do it to couple of other directories too but that was not a hard job
compared to doing all of this using graphical user interface =)

Dell PowerEdge 2650 server and memory limited message

I was installing Debian GNU/Linux to one of my old Dell PowerEdge 2650 servers but everytime
when I booted it up I got annoying message on my screen:

"Amount of available memory limit to 256 MB!
 Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility"

I find out that you can get rid of this message when you turn off “OS Install Mode” on BIOS because when it’s turned on
memory is limited to 256 MB. I have no idea why… If you know comment and let me know.

Kali Linux: How to keep your laptop running when you close the lid

I wanted to run some software on my laptop but I wanted to close the lid of my laptop so it would be easier to carry with me but every time when I closed the lid my laptop went to sleep
and stopped everything what it was doing =( I didn’t find any settings from Kali Linux GUI but you can do some small command line kung fu:

This setting disable the sleep mode when your laptop charger is plugged in and you close the lid:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-ac-action nothing

And this one disable the sleep mode when you are running your laptop on battery mode:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-battery-action nothing

After that your laptop should stay a wake even if you close the lid =)
