zte g x760 blueline debian ubuntu

ZTE G X760

The ZTE G X760 is also known as "Orange VEGAS". I use one branded "T-Mobile", byt unlocked. I use it to phone and as a backup modem. It's a GPRS (2G) phone. When plugged to a computer through the USB, the telephone promts if it will be connected as "Mass storage" or "COM Port". Depending on the usage, You've got to choose.

Blueline

Blueline is one of the best Internet Service provider in Madagascar. With their mobile telephone product, they have a Data service. I use it to access Internet, with my telephone (see above), on my Ubuntu and Debian laptop. The APN is "bluenet". No password required.

Connecting to Internet

After pluggin the phone and choosing "COM Port", the phone is then detected as a modem

         cdc_acm 3-2:1.1: ttyACM0: USB ACM device         usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_acm         cdc_acm: v0.26:USB Abstract Control Model driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters        
Then, I had to setup several files:
/etc/chatscripts/bluenet
       ABORT BUSY       ABORT 'NO CARRIER'       ABORT ERROR       REPORT CONNECT       TIMEOUT 10       "" "ATZ &F"       OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","bluenet"'       TIMEOUT 60       OK "ATD*99***1#"       CONNECT \d\c      
/etc/ppp/peers/bluenet
       hide-password       noauth       modem       connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/bluenet"       debug       /dev/ttyACM0       115200       defaultroute       noipdefault       user any       password any       remotename bluenet       ipparam bluenet       usepeerdns       novj       lcp-echo-interval 0      
To connect to internet, just do: pon bluenet and tail your logs.

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
