Swapping disk out of LVM volume group
Working on upgrading my little ITX box to have some larger internal hard drives. Currently it has 2 internal drives(sdb 500G and sda 120G SSD), a USB thumb drive(sdd 16G with / and /boot), and two external USB drives (sde 2TB & sdc 1TB). Purchased a relatively cheap 4TB internal HD and want to swap out the 500GB drive for that.

Eclipse and MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME issues on Linux
Have run into this in the past and fought through it, ran into it again this week and did some searching to resolve my issues thought I should actually make a note of what I did this time.
local LAN mirror for CentOS
I find myself needing to setup RedHat like environments more and more these days and after install 4, 5, and 6 using CentOS it seems like I could get more economy if I had a simple OS level mirror on my gateway box.
WebSphere and RQM on Suse ES 11 x64
Both installs are pretty straight forward, but if you are using the default ulimits you will run into a problem for an application server with the isclite and query applications deployed as well. You will see an Exception for java.io.

So I was thinking I have entirely too much garbage laying around my house, so I started with what’s near and dear to my heart, my tech. First things first, what is worth selling and what is easier to just toss and be done with. First things first, what data…
but Ubuntu 8.10 and DB2 9.5 are so nice together
So I have to install the two together for some testing, the first problem is discovered upon running the pre-requisite check failing with libst5++ missing, a quick search and we find the required packages, once you have these the install should go just fine.
