Install mod_security 2 on CentOS/RedHat

This is a translation from Spanish to English, but still the best guide I’ve used so far. Modified slightly to help others but could use more work.

Important: ModSecurity blocks lots of UNIX commands. I had to add dots to them. They are colored red so you know to change them.

This article assumes that you have installed a RedHat Enterprise or CentOS and not guaranteed to work, although we have tested on several CentOS 4.5 with success. Continue reading…

Useful Firefox Plugins for the EEE PC

  • Tiny Menu – Condenses all the file menus (File, Edit, View, etc.) into one option called Menu. I suggest using this, then dragging all the nav buttons and such onto the same row. Saves a lot of screen real estate, and it’s one of the most important addons in my opinion.
  • autoHideStatusbar – Auto-hides the Firefox status bar at the bottom of the screen, similar to Google Chrome.
  • Foxmarks – Synchronize bookmarks with any of your other computers.
  • Silvermel – Great classy theme. (Not really designed specifically for this but it just looks good.)
  • Hide Find Bar – Auto hides the find bar after X amount of seconds. I always leave it open by accident so this is great.

Get Ventrilo to Work on the EEE PC (Sort-of)

1. Edit the file:
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system.ini

2. And add the following line:
MSACM.msgsm610=msgsm32.acm

3. Next you need to get your hands on the windows file ‘msgsm32.acm’ from an existing windows partition (C:/WINDOWS/system32/msgsm32.acm) and copy it to ‘~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system/’.

4. Run vent.

Note: When I transmit, I can usually only transmit until I let go of the talk key, then that’s broken for good. I can still receive audio the whole time though.
