DHCP server in Debian 9

These are the steps that I followed, in order to make a DHCP server in Debian 9 Stretch.

First of all we need to assign an IP address on our main ethernet interface. For this guide, I will use interface enp0s2. So we have to edit the file /etc/network/interfaces and add the following :

auto enp2s0
allow-hotplug enp2s0
iface enp2s0 inet static
address 192.168.1.1/24
dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8
dns-search mydomain.com

Then we need to download our dhcp package.

sudo apt install isc-dhcp-server

LTSP on ubuntu 16.04 server

LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project), adds thin client support to Linux servers. Just imagine PCs without a hard drive, running linux over the network. Pretty cool!

So what do we need to accomplish that ?

We just need a DHCP service (with specific options like 66, 67, 17), a linux box running the  LTSP server and some client PCs connected to the same network. You will find many guides on the internet on how to install a LTSP server. All guides install the DHCP server on the same box. Also they are using DHCP proxy etc. My case has a DHCP server working on mikrotik routerOS.

So, in this guide, I assume that my local network is 192.168.1.0/24, my mikrotik device is the gateway of the network and has an interface (ether1) with IP address 192.168.1.1 and my linux box has the ip address 192.168.1.10 and runs ubuntu server 16.04. Continue reading

How to install VDR on CentOS

VDR is an application that allows us to do video streaming using as source a DVB-S or DVB-T adapter. This guide was tested on CentOS 6.4 x64. I used VDR version 1.7.22 and version 0.5.2 of streamdev server plugin. A prerequisite is that the system must have installed a DVB adapter.

Let’s install some groups and packages

yum groupinstall "Additional Development" "Development tools"
yum install fontconfig fontconfig-devel freetype freetype-devel gettext gettext-devel libcap libcap-devel libjpeg libjpeg-devel
