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?

Could this be a hack?

Hi,

I just opened up my Documents folder on my Ubuntu laptop, and it is completely empty.  All other directories I have checked looked fine.  I can't think of a way I could have deleted the contents of a directory accidentally, without deleting the directory itself. I did use the laptop with unsecured wifi at a cafe this weekend. There were at least 100 docs in there, including things like mortgage reciepts and bank statements..I think the account numbers were automatically removed, but I'm not sure. Could some kind of bot cleaned the folder out? Why would they take files without trying to ransom them? If they just wanted account numbers and such, why not leave the files there to avoid suspicion? this doesn't make sense to me.

I am like Joe End User, I don't have the skills to go through my system to look for evidence of an attack. What is a logical next step for me?

~Paul

LFNW 2016

Hi All,

When the call for participation went out for this year's Linux Fest
Northwest, I checked with mjevans and a variety of other members who
were active in IRC. The general consensus was that GSLUG should not
break the streak and host a table.

Well, LFNW is fast approaching (3 weeks away!) and I have not seen any
logistics conversation going on. Hopefully this thread will change that.

The GSLUG graphic is due by the 15th and a space has been reserved.
Mjevans has the box of tablecloth, handbills, stickers, etc.

Please use this thread to coordinate who will be there and how you
would like to arrange tabling slots.

Thanks!

Key Click??

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With Thirty years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	Some years ago an quasi-unfriendly Canadian wrote a python script 
	to make my keys click.  Sun has the "click [y/n]"  utility.  I've
	spent Weeks trying to duplicate this and/or how to get rid of the
	annoying "click.0.01"  that this guy  did by modifying
	something he wrote before  his 8-year-old   son.  No joy.  I have
	searching for "click, keyboard, audio"  Zip.  I watch my keyboard
	rather than the screen so that I know that I'm hitting the right
	key.

	In short, is there any code I can just install or compile and
	install to get a nice thunk with each key press?

	gary

	since I only have one hand it is usually hard to type the glyphs

	the keyboard so that if I type the     Shift  key and then, say
	the number 2 key, a " <at> " will be displayed?
