before i get shot... .

Of_Interest: With Thirty years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	I may have asked this question before, but I'll risk asking again
	... before one of you drives over and shoots me.  I've tried my 
	best, but my eyesight isn't what it was, blah* 3, and at least
	I'm part-way there.

	I've always stuck with the simplest things when it comes to mail. 
	Like at first unix had "mail", then "Mail";  then I found "elm"
	and now "mutt".  At least a couple people have suggested I use 
	thunderbird.  But it means giving up vi/vim/etc.  My scripts
	from years past like .exec and .vimrc and some simple aliases
	inside .zshrc have kept down the number of keystrokes.  Ive 
	recently found muttator that is an addition to thunderbird.

	I need help getting my few hundred mutt-aliases to with with
	muttator [or maybe vimperator [sp?].  Can any of you folks give
	me some clues on how muttator works with my aliases *and* how
	this all fits in with t'bird?

	thanks in advance,

	gary
	
	PS:  yeah, I do need new glasses!

Hello World

Hi, y'all,

I'd like to attend your next meeting on June 11th and am eager to meet everyone. A bit about me:

First Linux: Redhat 1.1 (i think. it was on 3.5" floppies and it was 1995)
Most Linuxy job: tie btw Facebook in Seattle and TurboLinux in Tokyo
Favorite vintage kernel: 2.0.36 (dat ne2000 driver tho)
Current favorite Linux: Arch, ftw

Full disclosure, I also want to hire people who love Linux. I'm a production engineering manager at Facebook. Would it be cool if I gave a lightning talk on what production engineering is and why we're super into Linux? Also, a few of my colleagues have expressed interest in tagging along.

RFC Organization meeting times

It has become obvious that the current time for the organization meeting is not good for other people.

 
I have been asking for suggestions for a new time for the meeting however there has not been any concrete suggestions as of yet other than asking the General mailing list.

What has become obvious is that for meeting reservation purposes the best time of the month to hold the meeting is in the final week of the month the second best time being on the 4th Nth (eg Tuesday) if the month.  Every month has at least 28 days, thus that is when it is probably best.

But which days are better for others and is 1900 (7pm) the best time?

guys, 

a friend was over and messing w/ my network.   I can't figure  out how my
domain could have gotten so messed up, but yup.

One is that I am missing the python module that helps me type.   I have
a disability very slightly related to parkensons and when my key strikes
make a      THUNK, 			it helps me type.    I do not know
how this "module" GST could be missing, but it is.  Can   anybody clue me n
on how to retrieve "gst"?
tx.

socat to access KVM guest via serial to named pipe

Good evening all,

I'm usually able to figure out stuff on my own, but my google-fu is failing me on this one so I turn to the fine folks of GSLUG.

I'm attempting to set up an olive for use in studying for my JNCIA and i'm running into an issue getting console access to the guest on KVM.

System backgorund:
Ubuntu server 14.04
kvm --version QEMU emulator version 2.0.0 (Debian 2.0.0+dfsg-2ubuntu1.22)

I'm following this as my guide.
http://daemonkeeper.net/563/deploy-junos-on-a-virtualbox-virtual-machine/

While i'm not using virtualbox these steps should work for KVM as far as I can tell.

The place i'm stuck is connecting socat. I keeping getting a connection refused error when attempting to connect to the named pipe. I know the pipe is working as I can cat the contents of the file and see the console output from the guest, however I cannot connect.

socat -d -d UNIX-CONNECT:ttyolive01.raw PTY,link=/dev/ttyS0

2016/04/13 21:04:22 socat[7960] N opening connection to AF=1 "ttyolive01.raw"
2016/04/13 21:04:22 socat[7960] E connect(3, AF=1 "ttyolive01.raw", 16): Connection refused
2016/04/13 21:04:22 socat[7960] N exit(1)

The man page for socat would lead me to think that there may be no active UNIX Socket.
My reading on named pipes seems to say that named pipes are one way.

Both of these conclusions and the error i am getting support that this shouldn't ever work.
However in my research time and time again i keep coming back to web sites talking about named pipes and socat UNIX-CONNECT going together to do just this thing.

Has anyone done anything like this and gotten it to work?
Is there another direction i should be going for KVM guest console access?
