How to flush the DNS cache in Debian GNU/Linux?

If using systemd-resolved as your DNS resolver (i.e. the hosts line of your /etc/nsswitch.conf file includes the word resolve and/or /etc/resolv.conf contains the line nameserver, then this command will flush its cache:

sudo systemd-resolve --flush-caches

A newer version of this command seems to be:

sudo resolvectl flush-caches

How to convert WMV to MP4

You can use FFmpeg (a free command-line tool for Mac, Linux and Windows) to encode WMV to MP4. Here is an example syntax:

ffmpeg -i input.wmv -c:v libx264 -crf 23 -c:a aac -q:a 100 output.mp4

This will encode the video to H.264 video and AAC audio, using the default quality. To change the quality for the video, use a different CRF value, where lower means better, e.g. 20 or 18. For audio, 100% is the default quality. Increase the value for better quality.

For the AppleTV specifically, this is what Apple says it supports:

H.264 video up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High or Main Profile level 4.0 or lower, Baseline profile level 3.0 or lower with AAC-LC audio up to 160 kbit/s per channel, 48 kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats

So, you could use the following command to force the 30 Hz frame rate and High profile:

ffmpeg -i input.wmv -c:v libx264 -crf 23 -profile:v high -r 30 -c:a aac -q:a 100 -ar 48000 output.mp4

How to install SSH2 extension for PHP 7.4

If You have an error like: Call to undefined function ssh2_connect() that’s mean that in your PHP not installed ssh2 extension.

Mikrotik wireless client disconnection at specified signal levels

Allow everything on WLAN1 that has a signal above -87dBm (eg, signal between -86 and+120 dBm) , and allow even that signal to drop below -87 dBm for 30 sec.

The allow is authenticate (associate) and forwarding (connect to other clients).
The allow-signal-out-of-range is needed because devices are in their hands, so the signal fluctuates, but I prefer not to drop them immediately.

To stop the weak signal connections on WLAN1 the next line is needed. For everything with signal between -87 and -120 dBm there is no authentication allowed.

The allow-signal-out-of range is short here (1 sec) because this is used for roaming clients that are sticky to their first AP, but they may come back very soon to this AP, and I prefer not to deny them longer than needed.

/interface wireless access-list
add allow-signal-out-of-range=30s interface=wlan1 signal-range= -86..120 
add allow-signal-out-of-range=1s authentication=no forwarding=no interface=wlan1 signal-range=-120..-87

Create first program “Hello World” on Assembler in Linux

To create program on Assembler in Linux operating system we need compiler for x86 architecture named nasm

sudo apt install nasm

To compile program in file hello.asm use commands:

nasm -felf64 hello.asm
ld hello.o

To start compiled program use command:


Nov let’s create our program in file hello.asm using text editor vim

vim hello.asm

Here is the full code of program:

	db	"Hello World!", 10

	mov	rax, 1
	mov	rdi, 1
	mov	rsi, message
	mov	rdx, 14

	mov	rax, 60

	section .data

global _start

section .text

In first two lines we create some label which contains some directive db width string “Hello World!“, and last symbol 10line feed. Directive is like variables in high level programming languages.

Directive db can use 1 byte for writing information and can write constants from -128 to 255 and can write symbols and strings.

Next create label _start: and width command mov we write some data in processor address (register):

mov rax, 1 – move 1 in register rax – in this string we call data recording.
mov rdi, 1 – This register response for input and output stream. When we send 1 in register rdi we say processor to work width standard output stream.
mov rsi, message – we write address of our string in register rsi.
mov rdx, 14 – we write count bytes of our string in register rdx.

Next we make system call width command syscall.

mov rax, 60 – we put number 60 in register rax – this is system call for exit.

And again make system call width command syscall.

At the end of program we run command section .data

Width command global _start we run our program from label _start.

Width command section .text we declare text part of our code

How fix Error code on Firefox: SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION

Error SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION pops up because the website uses an outdated encryption methodology which firefox doesn’t really support now. To temporarily access the website do the following:

  1. Type in “about:config” into the firefox browser address bar
  2. You will reach the “Proceed with Caution” page click on “Accept Risk and Continue
  3. On the net page in the “search preference name” section type in “security.tls.version.min
  4. Click on the pencil icon right next to the search result and change the no in the box to “1
  5. Open a new tab and try re-opening the website again.

Once done browsing the website follow the above steps and revert the no in the box from “1” to “3”. This is a very common problem faced while accessing civilian portals in most govt websites since they haven’t modified the encryption technologies at their end.

Install LAMP server on Ubuntu

All the components of the LAMP server are available to install using the default system repository of Ubuntu. Hence, we can configure the environment without adding an extra repository. However, before moving forward, just run the system update command to ensure the system rebuilds the APT package index cache.

sudo apt update

Install Lamp server

We can install LAMP server components one by one on our Ubuntu system. However, it is a time-consuming process, hence to make it short here we are using a single command. That will not only install the LAMP server but also enable and start all the required services.

sudo apt install lamp-server^ php

The above command will select all the required packages to set up Apache, MySQL, and PHP on your system.

Uninstall the LAMP Server

Well, when it comes to uninstalling the LAMP server completely from your Ubuntu system, we can use the given command:

sudo apt autoremove --purge apache2* mysql-server* php*
