Fedora on the ODROID-HC2

This blog post is about installing Fedora 29 on an ODROID-HC2 (from a Fedora 29 x86_64 workstation).

The aim is to get the ODROID in a state where one can ssh as root to the host.

Both initial setup over serial and installing without using a serial console are described.

These notes also apply to Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL7)

IPMI hardware watchdog with RHEL 7 / CentOS 7

introduction

My new server has IPMI which includes a watchdog timer.

Since I regularly get told that hardware watchdogs are no fun to set up, I’ll record my setup steps for an IPMI watchdog here. This document is not about watchdogs in general, but rather specifically on how to use an IPMI watchdog on a recent Red Hat based distribution.

set fan thresholds on my Super Micro H11DSi-NT

The Super Micro remote management webUI is nice and even offers KVM with HTML5. But I much prefer using vendor agnostic IPMI directly instead of a vendor specific tool like iDRAC, iLO, etc.

These are my notes on setting fan thresholds via IPMI for my H11DSi-NT motherboard.

Hugo Now Live

After playing with it for a week, I’ve decided that Hugo will indeed be the blog software I use for now.

Testing Hugo

While I very much liked the idea of Octopress generating static pages, I do not know enough Ruby to deal with problems I had after updating my base OS.
