DHCP protocol supports sending the client host name to the server via the DHCP HOST NAME option.
See RFC2132 appendix and the original
DHCP Vendor Extension at RFC1497
Further info on the option structure is in the bootp documentation:
You can configure it
uncomment the ‘send host-name’ directive in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
add the following line to the interface with the ip you want to associate
To set the default elevator with grub2, just:
1- check current settings
# grep CMD /etc/default/grub
2- set GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=” elevator=noop ” # or whatever
# sudo update-grub
4- reboot and verify 😉
Ubuntu contributions are managed via the launchpad platform. Once you subscribe you can contribute checking out projects with bzr.
Ubuntu comes with a bzr “launchpad” plugin. You can register your ssh public key here
then join with:
#bzr launchpad-login user
Checkout your source project – eg u1ftp, the ubuntu one ftp gateway.
#bzr branch lp:u1ftp u1ftp-origin
Do your patch, commit and then push it!
bzr push lp:~rpolli/u1ftp/unicode_support
As you know is not possible to perform a rsync with a ftp site. Here you can find a simple workaround to perform a remote backup.
First install rsync and curlftpfs…
sudo apt-get install rsync curlftpfs
…then create the mountpoint and allow access to your user…
sudo mkdir /mnt/yourftp
sudo chown youruser /mnt/yourftp
…enable the fuse mount for non-root users…
sudo vi /etc/fuse.conf
uncomment the parameter user_allow_other on the last line
…and then mount your ftp site
curlftpfs -o user=username:password,allow_other ftp.yoursite.com /mnt/yourftp
Now you can navigate your ftp like a classic filesystem folder!
Finally enjoy your rsync (example):
rsync -r -t -v –progress –delete /home/folder_to_backup/ /mnt/yourftp
Remember that if you need to sync folders with different name you have to add the last slash on the source dir!
P.S. Don’t forget to unmount your ftp site after the rsync:
sudo umount /mnt/yourftp
I wonder why the “partner” repository is not enabled by default in ubuntu 😛 This repo enables sun-java and many other useful packages.
Shortly add to your /etc/apt/sources.list the following lines:
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner

Welcome to a short guide about binding Apple Calendar Server (ACS) to a 389 Directory Server. Aim of this guide is to point a couple of common pittfalls.
- install ACS with default authentication. Remember:
- enable user_xattr on your directory
- install 389org
Download ldapdirectory.py – the backend written for OpenLdap from http://trac.calendarserver.org/attachment/ticket/260/ldapdirectory.patch
Modify ldapdirectory.py to reflect your attributes (eg I use “mail” instead of “uid”, “nsUniqueId” instead of “entryUUID” ).
I suggest to add some more log and error lines to ldapdirectory to speed up debugging.
Modify your configuration file like http://trac.calendarserver.org/attachment/ticket/260/caldavd-sample.plist
Remember to fix it with your parameter and to DISABLE all authentication types but BASIC-AUTH.
This is because ACS uses MD5-DIGEST by default, making impossible to forward the password to the Ldap Server (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digest_access_authentication)
