Linux: processes core dumps, systemd-coredump and Debian

14 March 2020
 

 Need to get a dump from fro ma PHP process on Debian 9. In this post will take a Linux kernel mechanism to create and manage processes dumps. Kernel’s dumps are created in another way, check Kdump на Arch Wiki. Linux Core Dump The kernel will create a process dump if it performed an invalid… Read More »

Linux: gnome-keyring setup as Freedesktop SecretService

26 February 2020
 

 Currently, I’m using KeePass as passwords, RSA-keys, and as the Freedesktop SecretService, see the KeePass: an MFA TOTP codes, a browser’s passwords, SSH keys passwords storage configuration and Secret Service integration post. The first issue I faced with during such a setup is the fact that KeePass’ database is synced between my computers (it’s database… Read More »

Linux: PHP-FPM, Docker, STDOUT and STDERR – no an application’s error logs

24 February 2020
 

 We have a Docker image with NGINX, PHP-FPM, and Supervisor. In the same image, we have our PHP application included, which outputs its errors to the /dev/stderr as per its php.ini file: … [global] error_log=/dev/stderr … The problem is, that if run kubectl logs –  there will be no error output from the application. So,… Read More »

Calibre Web: home in-browser online-library with Nextcloud storage and Moon+ Reader on Android

7 January 2020
 

 I’m using Calibre for my e-books library management for many years, but until today always used its desktop version. A couple of days ago I found the Calibre Web project – the same library, working with the same database, but accessible via a browser. The idea is to move away from storing books in Google… Read More »

KeePass: SSH keys passwords storage and decryption on Linux

13 December 2019
 

 As a follow-up to the SSH: RSA keys, and ssh-agent for SSH keys and their passwords management post. The idea now is to make simpler to work with password-protected SSH keys, to avoid the necessity to enter a password each time when you want to load a key to the ssh-agent. One of the possible… Read More »

KeePass: an MFA TOTP codes, a browser’s passwords, SSH keys passwords storage configuration and Secret Service integration

12 December 2019
 

 So, this seems to be the last one post in the whole series about passwords and SSH management in Linux. The previous parts were about: Linux: the Nextcloud client, qtkeychain and the “The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files” error – I found that a keyring service is able to store SSH… Read More »

Chromium: Linux, keyrings && Secret Service, passwords encryption and store

10 December 2019
 

 One of the motives to go deeper into the keyrings (see the What is: Linux keyring, gnome-keyring, Secret Service, and D-Bus post) was the fact that Chromium, surprise-surprise, keep passwords unencrypted if a Linux system has no keyring and/or Secret Service enabled. So, let’s try to find how and where Chromium store passwords, and the… Read More »

What is: Linux keyring, gnome-keyring, Secret Service, and D-Bus

7 December 2019
 

 It’s a really long-read post and I wast sure if it’s better to split it into three parts or put them together. On the one side, there are keyrings, from another – D-Bus, and finally, there is a Secret Service. Eventually, I decided to keep them here together as I googled all it in the… Read More »

SSH: RSA keys, and ssh-agent for SSH keys and their passwords management

1 December 2019
 

 During keyring configuration for the Nextcloud client (see the Linux: the Nextcloud client, qtkeychain and the “The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files” error post) – I decided to clean up the mess in my SSH keys, as I have a lot of them and sometimes authentication became just pain. In general… Read More »

Linux: the Nextcloud client, qtkeychain and the “The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files” error

1 December 2019
 

 After installing Nextcloud (see the Nextcloud: running in Docker Compose on Debian with Let’s Encrypt SSL post), on the next day its client ton my Arch Linux asked for authentication. But after I entered my credentials, it returned me the following error: Reading from keychain failed with error: ‘The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by… Read More »
