Featured Application #2: Mouse Without Borders – share keyboard and mouse over network


In 2010, I wrote an article about Input Director, since then a new application has emerged for sharing mouse and keyboard over network for Windows: Mouse without Borders

It’s a simplified version of Input Director, with a handy feature – shared clipboard and the ability to copy and paste files between workstations.

A screenshot of the setup between my PC and laptop:

Mouse without Borders can be downloaded here and configured within a few seconds :)

Fix for Windows 7 & wmic: Invalid XSL format (or) file name


In Windows 7, there is a bug with wmic and the /format switch. When using the /format switch, you will get the error “Invalid XSL format (or) file name.”

1. Example:

C:\Tmp>wmic /output:C:\tmp\procinfo.html CPU get Description,
DeviceID, Manufacturer, MaxClockSpeed, Name, Status, SystemName /format:hform.xsl
Invalid XSL format (or) file name.

2. Cause:

Windows looks for the XSL stylesheets but cannot find them, which produces the error above.

3. Resolution:

Copy *.xsl from x:\Windows\system32\wbem\en-US\ to x:\Windows\system32 – this can be done quicky from command prompt:

copy /y %WINDIR%\system32\wbem\en-US\*.xsl %WINDIR%\system32\

If you run your original wmic command (example in Section 1), there will be no errors and wmic will export data in the format required.

How to stop and reset/clear MySQL replication


This is a quick article that describes how to reset/delete/disable/clear MySQL replication in master-master or master-slave replication.

For each server that you wish to reset/clear MySQL replication on, do the following:

1. Enter MySQL prompt and run the following commands:

mysql> STOP SLAVE; CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST=''; RESET SLAVE;

2. Remove replication user(s). In this example, we remove replication user “replicator”:

 mysql> use mysql;
 mysql> delete from user where User="replicator";
 mysql> flush privileges;

3. Exit MySQL prompt and open up /etc/my.cnf – remove any reference to replication (eg: replicate-* master-* etc)

# vim /etc/my.cnf

4. Lastly, restart your MySQL instance:

# /etc/init.d/mysqld restart

 

Done.

How to enable EPEL repo on CentOS 5 & 6


To enable EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) for CentOS 5 x86 or x64, log in to SSH on your server and execute the following command (dependent on your OS – unsure of what version of CentOS you are running?):

 CentOS 6.x 32-bit (x86/i386):

rpm -Uvh http://mirror.overthewire.com.au/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

CentOS 6.x 64-bit (x64):

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

CentOS 5.x 32-bit (x86/i386):

rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

CentOS 5.x 64-bit (x64):

rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

 

Disable EPEL Repo:

If you want to disable the EPEL repo on your server, set “enabled=0″ in “/etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo”:

vim /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo
