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

npm run build base-href

Using NPM to specify base-href When building an Angular application, people usually use "ng" and pass arguments to that invocation. Typically, when wanting to hard code "base-href" in "index.html", one will issue: ng build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo' I used to build my angular apps through Bamboo or Jenkins and they have a "npm" plugin. I got the habit to build the application with "npm run build" before deploying it. But the development team once asked me to set the "--base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo'" parameter. npm run build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo did not set the base href in indext.html After looking for a while, I found https://github.com/angular/angular-cli/issues/13560 where it says: You need to use −− to pass arguments to npm scripts. This did the job! The command to issue is then: npm run build -- --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo&

dockerfile multiline to file

Outputing a multiline string from Dockerfile I motsly use a Dockerfile by sourcing from a base ditribution: CentOS or Debian. But I also have a local mirror and would like to use it for packages installation. Espacially on CentOS it is about many lines to write to the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file. Easiest way: one RUN per line The first method that comes in mind is to issue one RUN per line to write. Here you are: RUN echo "[base] " > /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "name=CentOS-$releasever - Base " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "baseurl=ftp://packages-infra.mg.rktmb.org/pub/centos/7/base-reposync-7 " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "gpgcheck=0 &quo

Gnome VNC Grey Checkboxes

When setting up VNC server in Gnome, I get a grey screen (or a black one) and the checkboxes to "Accept clipboard from viewers", "Send clipboard to viewers", "Send primary selection to viewers". I'm setting up a VNC server on a Debian 10 machine that has Gnome environment. A zillion articles can be found on Internet, they have the same global path: Install Gnome and GDM Install TigerVNC Setup the VNC Server: password + startup Run the server Connect from the client One of them is this TeknoTut how-to I took inspiration from. The tutorial is good, but I needed to complete it with extra steps in order to make it work: If the current user has already a running Gnome session, I just get the "grey screen with the checkboxes". It is good to know that: The "grey screen" is due to the "xsetroot" command that can be seen in some howtos The checkboxes are due to the "vncconfig -iconic &" command
