create an LVM volume

Goal

On a machine with LVM installed I would like to create some more /tmp space

Recipe

Ask for information
   # vgs   VG    #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize   VFree     scsi0   1   3   0 wz--n- 461,10G 195,10G   scsi1   1   1   0 wz--n- 931,51G  23,85G 
   # lvdisplay    ... 
Create the LVM according to the space left on the Volume group:
   #lvcreate  -L 200G scsi0 -n tmp   Logical volume "tmp" created 
 # lvdisplay  ...  --- Logical volume ---   LV Name                /dev/scsi0/tmp   VG Name                scsi0   LV UUID                ea10iW-wAnS-lUSA-clHW-X2M5-ibN3-uAUrws   LV Write Access        read/write   LV Status              available   # open                 0   LV Size                200,00 GB   Current LE             51200   Segments               1   Allocation             inherit   Read ahead sectors     auto   - currently set to     256   Block device           253:3 ... 
Format it
 # mkfs.ext3 /dev/scsi0/tmp 
Mount and use it
 # rm -rf /tmp/* ;  # mount -t ext3 /dev/mapper/scsi0-tmp /tmp 
Note: use "/dev/mapper/scsi0-tmp" not "/dev/scsi0/tmp"
To remove it
 # lvremove /dev/scsi0/tmp

vmware libz libfontconfig libexpat

Archlinux - Kernel 4.11 - VMWare workstation 12.5.7 With this combination, when I launch "vmware", despite the fact I already "export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=force", I get those lines:

Unable to load libfontconfig.so.1. /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/libpng16.so.16) Unable to load libfontconfig.so.1 from /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libfontconfig.so.1/libfontconfig.so.1: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Unable to load dependencies for /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libvmware-modconfig.so/libvmware-modconfig.so
In order to workaround, I decided to get the things to the maximum: Add all shipped libraries in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

So I created my custom launcher of "vmware" and this is the content:

#!/bin/bash
export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=force
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=""
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$( find /usr/lib/vmware/lib/ -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 -type d | awk 'BEGIN{p=&quo…

vmware net_device trans_start

VMWare Workstation 12 and Kernel 4.7 When recompiling vmware kernel modules on a kernel 4.7, I get this error:

/tmp/modconfig-xrrZGZ/vmnet-only/netif.c:468:7: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’; did you mean ‘mem_start’?     dev->trans_start = jiffies;
This seems to be an already encountered problem: http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1746http://ferenc.homelinux.com/?p=356 I choosed to replace the line, instead of deleting it.

- dev->trans_start = jiffies; + netif_trans_update(dev); I also noted that I had to re-tar the modified sources instead of leaving them untared, because the compilation process only takes the archives. 
On precedent editions of these files, I just left the modified folders "vmnet-only/" and "vmmon-only/" expanded without the need to re-tar them.


Jira workflow for new projects

Associated workflow creation I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.
I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project. Default workflow for new projects I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.
Solution: Create with shared configuration While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:
"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.

The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I selectThere will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup
