Intel Graphics for CentOS 6
Recently, I started seeing error messages regarding many bad sectors in the hard drive in my HP laptop. After looking at various websites I determined that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to purchase a new hard drive as opposed to trying to fix this issue with disk utilities.
After purchasing and installing the new hard drive, I had to install CentOS again. One thing I quickly noticed is that the default Installer did not seem to work so I tried “Install with basic video driver”. Long story short, after doing the install with the basic video driver I had to do 2 things to enable CentOS to use the Intel graphics card.
1. Edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file replacing the word “vesa” with “intel”
2. Edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file by removing the word “nomodeset”

Happy SysAdmin Day!
Apache Client Certificate Authentication
Below is a useful link for implementing authentication using client certificates and Apache.http://wiki.cacert.org/ApacheServerClientCertificateAuthentication
PostgreSQL Current Process List
To kill a process:
— don’t kill my own connection!
procpid <> pg_backend_pid()
— don’t kill the connections to other databases
AND datname = ‘database_name’;
Or you can just leave off the FROM clause
To view process details:
SELECT datname, procpid, current_query FROM pg_stat_activity;
Why can’t CompTIA reward their certification holders with a certificate that is a normal size? What’s up with the 8.5” x 5.5” dimensions??
