Fun with windows subsystem for linux

After the install and the required reboot I was able to start bash. At first I was confused where to find the files from the home directory. It isn’t the one from windows itself.
Well I found it in AppData\Local\lxss . So each user has his / her own files.

Since I was able to find most stuff I wanted to know if I am able to compile httpd apache on it. I cloned and the build went smooth.
But apache didn’t start. Adding AcceptFilter http none and AcceptFilter https none helped. To get rid of the first error messages. But still apache wasn’t starting. Got the following error message.

[Tue Jan 24 22:31:33.590385 2017] [fcgid:emerg] [pid 1289:tid 140034843477824] (38)Function not implemented: mod_fcgid: Can't create shared memory for size 1200712 bytes

Okay, I disabled mod_fcgid and apache starts with /opt/apache2/bin/httpd -k start . Even running C:\Windows\System32\bash.exe ~ as Adminstrator did not solve to run fcgid.
I have to find out how to run mod_fcgid. I like to run PHP over fcgid.

Delete DS_store and other mac files from windows server

Use a simple batch script

del /s /q /f /a .DS_STORE
del /s /q /f /a ._.*

Maybe you need to cd \ to the root of the drive you are on.

How to set up git over apache 2.4 on Windows

How to set up git apache 2.4 on Windows

At my first shot I was abl to glone the repo but I wasn’t able to push into the repo. Setting the LogLevel to debug showed: AH01215: Service not enabled: ‘receive-pack’: C:/Program Files (x86)/Git/libexec/git-core/git-http-backend.exe

Googling suggested to enable WebDAV. I doubted that but tried it anyway. Trail and error! It did not work about. The git client showed a 403 -> an access or authentication error.   The authentication triggered something in my mind. So I searched for the auth variable that git uses. Et voilà: Git uses the remote user in a different way.
The following set up is not secure, just for local testing. It requires  a http authentication ;)

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "/Users/mario/work/git"
    CustomLog "C:\nul" common

    SetEnv GIT_PROJECT_ROOT /Users/mario/work/git

    ScriptAliasMatch "(?x)^/(.*/(HEAD | info/refs | objects/(info/[^/]+ | [0-9a-f]{2}/[0-9a-f]{38} | pack/pack-[0-9a-f]{40}.(pack|idx)) | git-(upload|receive)-pack))$" "C:/Program Files (x86)/git/libexec/git-core/git-http-backend.exe/$1"

    <Directory "/Users/mario/work/git">
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    <Directory "C:/Program Files (x86)/git/libexec/git-core/">

Windows 8 Ruhezustand / Suspend to disk / Hybernate

Leider gibt es inWindows 8 keinen Knopf um Windows in den Ruhezustand zu schicken. Sicherlich startet Windows 8 sehr schnell, aber wenn es darum geht den Zustand von Programmen bei zubehalten, reicht das nicht.
Zum Glück kann man sich eine Verknüpfung auf dem Desktop anlegen: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Und schon klappt der Ruhezustand wieder :-)

if you wanna use the last SDK, but own only the express version you can do it this way:

Run as Administrator

copy paste:

IE 8 tabs schließen sich direkt nach dem öffnen

Auf dem Firmen PC welchen ich bekommen hatte, konnte ich keine neuen Tabs öffnen. Beim Klicken auf das Symbol ging der neue Tab gleich wieder zu.  Da der IE 7 installiert war, habe ich den IE 8 heruntergeladen, installiert: Immer noch das gleiche Problem. IE 9 ging nicht, weil auf dem Komposter nur XP installiert war. Googeln brachte auch nix zu Tage weder in englisch noch deutsch. Admin angerufen und gefragt, was ich tun soll. Er :”mach mal die Systemsteuerung auf und dann klick auf Software. Aha, nur net 4 installieren” ??? Was meinte er? Achso, DOT NET 4 installiert, weil er der Meinung war, dass der IE davon abhinge. Geglaubt habe ich das nicht, aber da das nicht MEIN Rechner  ist, habe ich das gemacht. Dann hat sich etwas später auch gleich das Windows update gemeldet. SP1 und Language pack SP 1 für .NET 4.  Ätsch. danach lief es immer noch nicht.  In der Zwischenzeit hat ich die Startseite des IE schon verändert, so dass gleich 5 Tabs beim Start aufgehen, damit ich nicht komplett auf Tabs verzichten mußte.

Eine Idee kam mir dann heute nach 3 Tagen endlich. Den IE mal ohne Addons starten. Wer weiß, was die Leute die vor mir den PC benutzt haben so alles installiert haben… es waren immerhin 4 + Admin Profile zu finden + mein eigenes. Also Start –> Ausführen –> iexplore.exe -extoff siehe das geht. Wunder oh Wunder! Also alle Addons deaktiviert und nach einander wieder eingeschaltet. Die Developer Toolbar für Internet Explorer war der schuldige Kandidat. Warscheinlich, hat jemand wieder einmal die nicht gepatchte installation CD von XP genommen. Der nächst Beste hat dann für den IE 6 die Toolbar installiert. Crap! Der IE 7 und IE 8 bringen aber unter der F12 Taste eigene Entwicklertools mit sich.  Irgentwo haben sich jene gebissen.  Danke an den Admin für die veraltete Installation. Zweitens danke an den jenigen, der die Developer toolbar installiert hat.  –> So kann ich net arbeide!
