Fedora 26 : using Huion Giano WH1409 graphic tablet .

If you want to use your Huion Giano WH1409 graphic tablet with Fedora 26 then you need to use DKMS kernel.
Let's start. First you need to have a github account to download this kernel.
Use this commands to install the DKMS kernel from digimend.
$su 
#dnf install dkms git-core 
#git clone https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend-kernel-drivers.git /usr/src/digimend-6
#dkms build digimend/6
#dkms install digimend/6
Now connect the wireless USB dongle and reboot your computer. Take a look at dkms status:
dkms status
If you use VirtualBox then I tested with last version of VirtualBox and works without any settings.
If you want to set your tablet keys then you make custom X11 rules .
First is need to go to this folder: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/.
Now create 50-huion.conf file and use the configuration tool xsetwacom.
I don't make this settings because the tablet work's good with inkscape software.

Fedora 26 : install Google Chrome.

Today I try to install Google Chrome on Fedora 26.
As you know this is one of the fastest and most well liked browsers available.
First I download of the rpm file into my Downloads folder and the I used dnf command to install into Fedora 26:
$ cd ~/Downloads
$ wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
$ su 
# dnf install google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
The result, the Google Chrome browser is installed and run well.

Fedora 26 : reset root password .

Although most believe that they know the answer to this question then in Fedora 26 you have to adopt a method other than the classic one.
Start with select the boot line and press e key to edit.
Find the line with linux16 and add this on the end of this row:

rd.break
Press Ctr+x or F10 keys to reboot.
#mount | grep root
#mount -o remount,rw /sysroot
#mount | grep root
#chroot /sysroot/
#passwd root
...
#touch /.autorelabel
#exit
#reboot

Now you can use the new password for user root to login the system.
I try the old way with init=/bin/bash but I got a panic kernel ( maybe is the SELinux performs a complete file system relabel).
Anyway this solve my problem with reset the root password on Fedora 26 Server.

About rd.break, this interrupt the boot process before control is passed from initramfs to systemd.
The disadvantage of this method is that it requires more steps, includes having to edit the GRUB menu, and involves choosing between a possibly time consuming SELinux file relabel or changing the SELinux enforcing mode and then restoring the SELinux security context for /etc/shadow/ when the boot completes.

Fedora 26 server 64bit - tested VM.

I install Fedora 26 into simple way with the Netinstall Image (64-bit 484MB ) from here.
I used the last VirtualBox to test this Fedora 26 net image.
It took some time because the hardware used is without the dedicated video card and an I5 processor. The basic idea of this test was to see how to install it.
It's interesting to watch: the number of packages installed per time unit, the startup steps for the base installation and the work environment.
The other steps are more complex because it matters what you want to do with this linux. It depends on how much you want to adapt it to your hardware machine or whether you will make it a web server, ftp, sftp or a graphics rendering or video rendering station.
The total installation time in VirtualBox was one hour and seven minutes. The resulting video was modified by changing the number of frames for a faster viewing, (from 72 to 172).
The reason was the first steps to install Fedora not to set a specific linux server.
I use linux command under root account to install and set Fedora 26:
#dnf update 
#dnf upgrade 
#dnf grouplist 
#dnf grouplist -v
#dnf install @cinnamon-desktop
#dnf -y group install "Fedora Workstation"
#dnf install setroubleshoot
#sestatus
#sestatus -v
#getenforce
#dnf install clamtk
#echo "exec /usr/bin/cinnamon-session" >> ~/.xinitrc
#startx
Let's see the record video of this test install :

News: Send files on WhatsApp.

The WhatsApp software lets users share multimedia content, but you can't send files directly to other users.
If you wanted to send unsupported file formats like .apk, .zip etc, you had to rename the file to a supported file format.
For example if you wanted to send the apk for your favorite app, you’d rename it such that it ends with .txt. I tested with Whatsapp™ For PC extension - Opera add-ons and works great.
I send a document file (.doc) with an approximate size of 5 Mb, without any interruption of the connection and a fluid transfer to the application.

Note:

You need to know also, there’s a limit of 100 MB to any attachment.
The executable file is not allowed ( like: .exe, .dll).
Meanwhile, messaging app Telegram is still leading the pack when it comes to file size restrictions — it has supported 1.5 GB files since its launch.

Best password management tool.

This suite of tools come with many features free and one good premium option.
The Password Tote tools provides secure password management through software and services on multiple platforms and work very well with software downloads for Windows, Mac OS X, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android.
You can download this from downloads page.

Features OutlineFreePremium
Website Access
Browser Extensions
Desktop Software
Mobile Software
Password Sharing
YubiKey Support
PriceFree$2.99 a month or 2 Years at a 16% savings
DescriptionThis will allow you to use the website version completely free. It also gives you access to fill your passwords from the browser extensions. It does not provide access to the desktop software or mobile phone software.Premium gives you access to your passwords from all versions of Password Tote, including the desktop software and mobile phone versions.

Synchronization between browser extensions and utilities is fast and does not confuse the user in navigation. Importing files is fast for the csv file dedicated to dozens of passwords.
A very good aspect was the compromise solution for custom import with a generic csv file.
The utility generates this file and you can fill it with the necessary login data for your web sites.
The other csv import options did not work for me, I guess the problems are incompatible with the other files exported by the dedicated software.
I used it with YubiKey and it worked very well. It's the only utility that allowed me to connect with YubiKey, the other utilities demand a premium version.

How to enable YubiKeys and password tote.
  • First log in to your Password Tote account. 
  • Click Account, then Manage YubiKeys. You will arrive at the YubiKey Management page. 
  • Click Add YubiKey to register your YubiKey with your Password Tote account. 
  • Fill in the required details. If successful, your YubiKey will be displayed in the list as shown in the screen shot below.

The tool Noodl for design and web development.

This tool will help you understand something about data structuring, node building, web development and design.
This application comes with interactive lessons and documentation.
Note: I tested some lessons and are not very easy. Thus, some links between the nodes do not appear with all the labels, unless they are made inversely, in this case on the work surface the links are no longer one-way (with the arrow arrow) but only punctually between the nodes.
It can be downloaded here for the following operating systems :
  • Version 1.2.3 (MacOS)
  • Version 1.2.3 (Win x64 Installer)
  • Version 1.2.3 (Linux x86 64)
Let's see the default interface of Noodl application.

Fedora 25 and fix python modules.

This tutorial is a simple way to fix your python modules under Fedora distro.
I used Fedora 25 and python 2.7.13 version.
First try to use this command:
pip freeze --local | grep -v '^\-e' | cut -d = -f 1  | xargs -n1 pip install -U
This command will try to update based by:
  • to skip "-e" package definitions;
  • the newer versions of pip allow you to list outdated python modules;
  • added -n1 to xargs, prevents stopping everything if updating one python module fails;
If you got this error about Python.h error:
...fatal error: Python.h...
Use this command to install the development library of Python:
[root@localhost mythcat]# dnf install python-devel.x86_64 python-devel.i686
Try to install also the devel libs for each error include.
Another example is this lib: opensslv.h
So install this:
[root@localhost mythcat]# dnf install openssl-devel.x86_64

The YARA tool for Linux security - part 001.

The YARA tool is a multi-platform program running on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
The YARA is designed to help malware researchers identify and classify malware samples.
It’s been called for security researchers and everyone else.
Yara provides an easy and effective way to write custom rules based on strings or byte sequences and allows you to make your own detection tools.
You can create descriptions of malware families based on textual or binary patterns or whatever you want to describe.
This descriptions or rules consists of a set of strings and a boolean expression which determine its logic.
The official website can be found here.
The First you need to install the yara tool under your Linux OS.
I used Fedora 25 distro.
[root@localhost mythcat]# dnf install yara

When you use YARA you can use:
  • modules - like extensions to YARA’s core functionality; 
  • external variables; 
  • including files; 
The YARA use rules and this rules are: global rules, private rules, tags and metadata.
The base of the syntax of a YARA rule set is this:
rule RuleName  
{
    strings:
    $test_string1= "Testing"
    $test_string2= {C6 45 ?? ??}
    condition:
    $test_string1 or $test_string2
}
The words strings and Conditions are two important keywords: strings and condition. The rule work with strings and this strings are the unique values to search for, while condition specifies your detection criteria. Some example with con:
all of them       /* all strings in the rule */
any of them       /* any string in the rule */
all of ($a*)      /* all strings whose identifier starts by $a */
any of ($a,$b,$c) /* any of $a, $b or $c */
1 of ($*)         /* same that "any of them" */
You can include also the meta keyword, see:
rule RuleName  
{
   meta:
      author = "Catalin George Festila - rule 001 "
      description = "tell something to the computer"
   strings:
   $test_string1= "first step "
...
The metadata can be referenced using the arg –m option at the command line.
You can add comments to your YARA rules just as if it was a C source file because rules have a syntax that resembles the C language.

The whiptail tool .

This command let you to deal with many display dialog boxes from shell scripts. The command is named whiptail and you can read and see simple examples with this command here.

Note: --infobox is almost useless in an xterm, because whiptail writes to theother screen xterm makes available but you can use the --msgbox

The tutorial of this day will show you how to put the text from a text file to the screen.
First you need a text file with a size of your shell screen and this will be used by this command.
For example I used this text from wikipedia into my text file named greeting.txt, see content :

The Paschal Greeting, also known as the Easter Acclamation, is an Easter custom among Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Eastern Catholic Christians. Instead of "hello" or its equivalent, one is to greet another person with "Christ is Risen!" or "The Lord is Risen!", and the response is "Truly, He is Risen," "Indeed, He is Risen," or "He is Risen Indeed" - compare Matthew 27:64, Matthew 28:6 7, Mark 16:6, Luke 24:6, Luke 24:34 In some cultures, such as in Russia and Serbia, it is also customary to exchange a triple kiss of peace on the alternating cheeks after the greeting. Similar responses are also used in the liturgies of other Christian churches, but not so much as general greetings.

To use the whiptail command just use this into your shell:
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ whiptail --textbox  /dev/stdin  19 59  <<<"$(cat greeting.txt)"
The output of this command can be seen into next image:

Linux: tools to scan a Linux server for malware and rootkits.

This tools are: chkrootkit, rkhunter, fuser and ISPProtect. All of this tools can be install under Fedora 25 with dnf tool. First tool is chkrootkit is a classic rootkit scanner. It checks your server for suspicious rootkit processes and checks for a list of known rootkit files.
[root@localhost mythcat]# chkrootkit

The journalctl command.

This is a good linux command for Linux maintenance.
First step is to read the documentation:
[root@localhost mythcat]# man journalctl
JOURNALCTL(1)                     journalctl                     JOURNALCTL(1)

NAME
       journalctl - Query the systemd journal

SYNOPSIS
       journalctl [OPTIONS...] [MATCHES...]

DESCRIPTION
       journalctl may be used to query the contents of the systemd(1) journal
       as written by systemd-journald.service(8).

       If called without parameters, it will show the full contents of the
       journal, starting with the oldest entry collected.

       If one or more match arguments are passed, the output is filtered
       accordingly. A match is in the format "FIELD=VALUE", e.g.
       "_SYSTEMD_UNIT=httpd.service", referring to the components of a
       structured journal entry. See systemd.journal-fields(7) for a list of
       well-known fields. If multiple matches are specified matching different
       fields, the log entries are filtered by both, i.e. the resulting output
       will show only entries matching all the specified matches of this kind.
       If two matches apply to the same field, then they are automatically
       matched as alternatives, i.e. the resulting output will show entries
       matching any of the specified matches for the same field. Finally, the
       character "+" may appear as a separate word between other terms on the
       command line. This causes all matches before and after to be combined
       in a disjunction (i.e. logical OR).
       ...
The self maintenance method is to vacuum the logs.
This help you with free space into your Linux OS.
For example: I got 3 Gigabytes of data in just 3 days.
# journalctl --vacuum-time=3d
Vacuuming done, freed 3.7G of archived journals on disk. To clean up this you can use the command into several ways:
  • by time
  • journalctl --vacuum-time=2d
  • retain only the past 500 MB
  • journalctl --vacuum-size=500M
As you know: The is an init system used in Linux distributions to bootstrap the user space and manage all processes subsequently. The journald daemon handles all of the messages produced by the kernel, initrd, services, etc. You can use the journalctl utility, which can be used to access and manipulate the data held within the journal. Let's start with some examples: How to see the configuration file for this process:
[root@localhost mythcat]# cat /etc/systemd/journald.conf
Also you can see the status of this service:
[root@localhost mythcat]# systemctl status  systemd-journald

QEMU - Devil Linux on Fedora 25.

QEMU (short for Quick Emulator) is a free and open-source hosted hypervisor that performs hardware virtualization QEMU is a hosted virtual machine monitor. You can install this software using dnf tool.
dnf install qemu.x86_64 
You can use any iso image from internet to run and test your distro linux. Just use this command:
I tested with Devil Linux iso without network ( the main reason was the settings of Devil Linux distro).
qemu-system-x86_64 -boot d -cdrom ~/devil-linux-1.8.0-rc2-x86_64/bootcd.iso --enable-kvm -m 2048
 -netdev user,id=user.0
Some args of qemu tool:
- qemu-system-x86_64 is the option for x86 architecture (64 bit);
- boot and -d set options for booting and debug;
- the -cdrom option set the iso file path and file;
- the --enable-kvm enable Kernel Virtual Machine;
- the -m 2048 set memory;
- the -netdev user,id=user.0 that tells us about qemu to use the user mode network stack which requires no administrator privilege to run;  
About QEMU VLAN.
QEMU networking uses a networking technology that is like VLAN. The QEMU forward packets to guest operating systems that are on the same VLAN. Examples with qemu-kvm options:
-net nic,model=virtio,vlan=0,macaddr=00:16:3e:00:01:01 
-net tap,vlan=0,script=/root/ifup-br0,downscript=/root/ifdown-br0 
-net nic,model=virtio,vlan=1,macaddr=00:16:3e:00:01:02 
-net tap,vlan=1,script=/root/ifup-br1,downscript=/root/ifdown-br1
- net nic command defines a network adapter in the guest operating system. - net tap command defines how QEMU configures the host. You can disabling networking entirely:
-net none

The ScreenFetch tool with Fedora 25 .

ScreenFetch is a System Information Tool designed primarily for Bash Shell but function with other shell environment as well. The tool is smart enough to auto-detect the Linux distribution you are using and generate the ASCII logo of the distribution with certain valuable information to the right of logo. 
Let's see my ScreenFetch:

Fedora: telnet game - BatMUD.

This is a good game if you have a telnet and internet connection.
Just open your terminal, run the telnet command and type o to open this: batmud.bat.org 23.
The game has a official website.
The team tells us about this game:

What is BatMUD - scratching the surface 

One could go on and rant for hours and hours about the Game. If you're not familiar with BatMUD, don't worry - you won't even be after the first week of playing. The game's not easy, it was never intended to be. The first eyeful can be deceiving, especially as we live in the fully graphical world of commercially produced, hundred-million dollar budget behemoths. Our game, it's nothing like that; even though we tend to boast that it is more, and trust us - it is. A problem with the modern day games is that, eventually they become very dull or simply uninspiring. However, BatMUD's text-based approach it is different, somewhat to as reading a good book - it's all about your imagination. Hundreds of volunteer developers through the Decades have brought a special uniqueness to the Game, and new ones continue the Legacy to this day. We cater to almost everyone: the available options and playstyles are basically endless. It's Your Realm.

Fedora 25: The perf linux tool.

If you want a good tool to test your performance under Fedora 25 distro or linux then the perf tool is great.
You can read a full tutorial from perf wiki and that will give a good impression on this utility.
The main problem come when you need to understand why we have to use this utility in linux.
Intro A trivial use the top command will show you the necessary information about your Linux.
If you look closely you will notice that : load average: 0.09, 0.05, 0.01
The three numbers represent averages over progressively longer periods of time (one, five, and fifteen minute averages). This means for us: that lower numbers are better and the higher numbers represent a problem or an overloaded machine. Now about multicore and multiprocessor the rule is simple: the total number of cores is what matters, regardless of how many physical processors those cores are spread across. Let's use this command: First I will record some data about my CPU:
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ perf record -e cpu-clock -ag 
Error:
You may not have permission to collect system-wide stats.

Consider tweaking /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_paranoid,
which controls use of the performance events system by
unprivileged users (without CAP_SYS_ADMIN).

The current value is 2:

  -1: Allow use of (almost) all events by all users
>= 0: Disallow raw tracepoint access by users without CAP_IOC_LOCK
>= 1: Disallow CPU event access by users without CAP_SYS_ADMIN
>= 2: Disallow kernel profiling by users without CAP_SYS_ADMIN
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ su 
Password: 
[root@localhost mythcat]# perf record -e cpu-clock -ag 
^C[ perf record: Woken up 17 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 5.409 MB perf.data (38518 samples) ]

[root@localhost mythcat]# ls -l perf.data
-rw-------. 1 mythcat mythcat 5683180 Feb 21 13:24 perf.data
You can see the perf tool working with root account and result is owned by deafult user. Let's show this data using the default user - mythcat and perf tool:
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ perf report
The result of this command: You can use the full list events by using this command:
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ perf list 

List of pre-defined events (to be used in -e):

Let's see one event from this list and that will told us how Fedora working:
[root@localhost mythcat]# perf top -e minor-faults -ns comm
Is use the comm (keys are available: pid, comm, dso, symbol, parent, cpu, socket, srcline, weight, local_weight) and the -ns args see the manual of perf command. The result of this command is: This is most simple way to see how is start and close some pids and how they interact in real-time with the operating system. Another way to deal with the perf command is how to analyze most scheduler properties from within 'perf sched' alone using the perf sched with the five sub-commands currently:

perf sched record            # low-overhead recording of arbitrary workloads
perf sched latency           # output per task latency metrics
perf sched map               # show summary/map of context-switching
perf sched trace             # output finegrained trace
perf sched replay            # replay a captured workload using simlated threads
Try this example to see the to capture a trace and then to check latencies (which analyzes the trace in perf.data record file).
perf sched record sleep 10     # record full system activity for 10 seconds
perf sched latency --sort max  # report latencies sorted by max 
You can also make a map of map of scheduling events by using this command:
[root@localhost mythcat]# perf sched record 
This tutorial show you just only 1% of ways of using the perf command.

Fedora 25: running Geekbench.

You can test your CPU with this software and will see report online.
The official website told us about this tool:
Geekbench 4 measures your system's power and tells you whether your computer is ready to roar. How strong is your mobile device or desktop computer? How will it perform when push comes to crunch? These are the questions that Geekbench can answer.
You can used free or buy a license of this software and you can get it from here.
Let's see how is working and what is tested:
[mythcat@localhost Geekbench-4.0.4-Linux]$ ls
geekbench4  geekbench.plar  geekbench_x86_32  geekbench_x86_64
[mythcat@localhost Geekbench-4.0.4-Linux]$ ./geekbench4 
[0219/140337:INFO:src/base/archive_file.cpp(43)] Found archive at 
/home/mythcat/build.pulse/dist/Geekbench-4.0.4-Linux/geekbench.plar
Geekbench 4.0.4 Tryout : http://www.geekbench.com/

Geekbench 4 is in tryout mode.

Geekbench 4 requires an active Internet connection when in tryout mode, and 
automatically uploads test results to the Geekbench Browser. Other features 
are unavailable in tryout mode.

Buy a Geekbench 4 license to enable offline use and remove the limitations of 
tryout mode.

If you would like to purchase Geekbench you can do so online:

  https://store.primatelabs.com/v4

If you have already purchased Geekbench, enter your email address and license 
key from your email receipt with the following command line:

  ./geekbench4 -r email address="" license key=""

Dealing with Mono under Fedora 25.

As you know the new Fedora come with dnf tool options you can use to define a DNF repository ( see link ).
This can be a problem for new users if want to install the mono development tools because they can get this error:
...
warning: /var/cache/dnf/download.mono-project.com_repo_centos-beta_-36cf85be8e79dffc/packages/mono-devel-4.8.0.483-0.xamarin.1.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID d3d831ef: NOKEY
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction.
You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: Public key for mono-devel-4.8.0.483-0.xamarin.1.x86_64.rpm is not installed


To fix that error you just need to use this commands:

[root@localhost mythcat]# rpm  --import "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF"
[root@localhost fedora25_test001]# dnf config-manager --add-repo http://jenkins.mono-project.com/repo/centos/
Adding repo from: http://jenkins.mono-project.com/repo/centos/
[root@localhost fedora25_test001]# dnf update
[root@localhost mythcat]# dnf install mono-devel

...

[root@localhost mythcat]# dnf install monodevelop

Now you can start the monodevelop with this command:

[mythcat@localhost ~]$ monodevelop

I make a simple mono GTK# window into few steps:
The result of project come with this files:
