flac 1.1.4 on FC6 - fix SELinux errors

I wanted to install flac v1.1.4 on my FC6 box but there is no RPM for FC6.

I installed from source but got this error when running flac:

flac: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

This is an SELinux problem. I fixed it using:

chcon -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8*

Using eth1 with xen (instead of eth0)

I have a xen box running FC6 with a couple of guest machines (also running FC6). The hardware has two network interfaces, eth0 (10/100MB/s) and eth1 (1GB/s). I was using eth0 as the primary interface but I've just got a gigabit switch and want to move the machine onto it. So I've reconfigured the host to use eth1 as the primary interface.

Here's what I needed to change to get xen to use the new interface.

Blog moves to new server.

After battling for several months with various root kits on the server hosting this site I've finally admitted defeat and taken it offline.

I've moved this blog plus my projects and downloads onto another machine so it *should* be business as usual.

Back online - for now

After getting root-kitted due to a vulerability in the rich text editor used by geeklog, I took the server hosting this site offline.

I'm in the process of moving the whole lot to a new server, but in the meantime, I've brought the server back online.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Site vulnerabilities fixed

General NewsApologies for any problems you may have experienced with this site in the past week or so, but I've been attacked by "script kiddies".

A security exploit has been published which affects geeklog (it affects the mcpuk filemanager component of the FCKeditor - more details here) and they've been hammering my site.

I managed to upgrade last night so things should settle down a little now. However, there may be certain elements of the site that still do not work correctly.

Please drop me an email and let me know if you find anything that's broken.
