macOS 10.13 High Sierra Public Beta

macOS Public Beta is now active, however; there are many articles out there telling users how to signup then leaving them short of getting the actual update.

I have been checking for days now and the update would not show up.. So I dug around and found the installer.

grub-pc (2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.10)

I’m running an Ubuntu server and the other day while running updates I started getting the following error:

Setting up grub-pc (2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.10) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/grub-pc.postinst: line 703: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
dpkg: error processing package grub-pc (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
 grub-pc
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Opening /var/lib/dpkg/info/grub-pc.postinst I found:

        if dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt-nl 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.10 then
          if [ -e "/boot/efi/EFI/${bootloader_id}/fbx64.efi" ]; then
            rm -f "/boot/efi/EFI/${bootloader_id}/fbx64.efi";
          fi
        fi

There was a missing semicolon in the first line and that’s what was breaking my update. I updated it and the error went away:

        if dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt-nl 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.10; then
          if [ -e "/boot/efi/EFI/${bootloader_id}/fbx64.efi" ]; then
            rm -f "/boot/efi/EFI/${bootloader_id}/fbx64.efi";
          fi
        fi

Google Chrome – Your Preferences cannot be read

Installing Linux Kernel v4.10

I started using CentOS over several other Distros that I have been testing ever the years. I still have an Ubuntu laptop just to keep up to date with things seeing that it’s one of the most popular ones.

I’ve covered installing Kernels before but I wanted to refresh that topic and include how to do it on CentOS.

How to get the Abbadon and Nova Mortis post Dawning

Both these weapons were introduced as part of The Dawning event but are still available to collect. These are basically the Void and Solar versions of the Thunderlord.

Originally you had to level up your book to get Xur’s Tag to unlock Xur’s gift at the tower and get the Tattered schematic which you then had to turn into Ikora Rey to unlock the Exotic Quest “Songs from the Void” for the Nova Mortis. Once you completing the Nova Mortis quest, go speak to Commander Zavala to unlock the quest for the Abbadon.

Netgear Router Security Update

Netgear noted that several of their routers have a command injection Vulnerability issue where an attacker can use a phishing method to gain control of your router.

Tip:
To find the model/version number, check the bottom or back panel of your NETGEAR device.

From the vulnerability Notes Database:

R6200, R6250, R6400, R6700, R6900, R7000, R7100LG, R7300, R7900, R8000, D6220, and D6400 contain an unauthenticated command injection vulnerability that may be executed directly or via cross-domain requests. Known affected firmware versions include Netgear R7000 version 1.0.7.2_1.1.93, R6400 version 1.0.1.12_1.0.11, and R8000 version 1.0.3.4_1.1.2. Earlier versions may also be affected. The command injection vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2016-6277.

By convincing a user to visit a specially crafted web site, a remote, unauthenticated attacker may execute arbitrary commands with root privileges on affected routers. An unauthenticated, LAN-based attacker may do the same by issuing a direct request, e.g. by visiting: http:///cgi-bin/;COMMAND

I miss some things from the old Ubuntu releases and one of those things is the login sound. I found it still included but not active, here is how to re-activate it if you want to have some nostalgia…
