How to update Spamassassin?

By issuing the following commands, spamassassin is updated from 3.1.3 to 3.1.4:

> wget
> rpmbuild -tb Mail-SpamAssassin-3.1.4.tar.gz
> cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/
> /etc/init.d/spamassassin stop
> rpm -Uvh perl-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.1.4-1.i386.rpm --nodeps
> rpm -Uvh spamassassin-3.1.4-1.i386.rpm
> /etc/init.d/spamassassin start

I dunno if using --nodeps in perl-Mail-SpamAssassin will cause any errors. People who follow these steps should pay serious attention.

Hope it helps somebody!

How to change SSH port to another one?


To start change SSH port, you can follow these steps:

1. Find this file: /etc/ssh/sshd_config and open it using your favourite editor(e.g. vi)

2. Find this line: #port 22. This line is commented out by default and it is usually the first line of sshd_config file.

3. Remove the '#' of this line, and change the number 22 to another number, like 1234. This is the port number you would like to use.

4. Restart SSH: /etc/init.d/sshd restart


Remember to config your iptables/firewall to accept new port and (preferrably) block all port 22 traffic.

About using the toggleMenu javascript

Please note: the following javascript is worked ONLY IN IE only, it cannot be used under FF... Dunno why:

function toggleMenu(oA){
var oTd = oA.parentElement;
var cSpan;

if (oTd != null && 'undefined' != typeof(oTd)){
cSpan = oTd.getElementsByTagName("div");

if (0 < cSpan.length){
if (-1 != cSpan[0].id.indexOf("something")){
if ('none' == cSpan[0].style.display){
cSpan[0].style.display = 'block';
} else {
cSpan[0].style.display = 'none';


<tr><td><a href="'javascript:toggleMenu(<tag_ID_attribute_with_words_'something');'">My Link</a></td></tr>
<tr><td><div id="<tag_ID_attribute_with_words_'something' " style="'display:none;'">Some content</div></td></tr&g…

How to solve "Virtual machine kernel stack fault (hardware reset) " problem?


I read this page to install my Solaris 10 01/06 (32 bits) version.

The main point of this problem is: you did not assign enough RAM to your Virtual Machine, the RAM must be higher than 170MB( Originally I only assign 160 MB...).

Once increased the RAM size, the installation run smoothly.

Hope it helps all.

How to kickout a user/kick a user in Linux


In my case, I use putty to login to my local linux machine but suddenly I got hung up in putty. I login again to linux console and do kick out user (myself!!)

The key point is, use "ps -aux | grep ssh" to get the user who login as SSH, if a user is not login using SSH, go grep the user name. Then find the Process ID(PID) of that particular user. Finally, issue "kill -9 ". So my steps will be:

1. ps -aux | grep ssh
2. kill -9

Finally, restart putty session and login again.
