Linux ntpd Sync with Windows 2008

Debian squeeze comes with ntpĀ 4.2.6p2 which doesn't work with Windows 2008 R2 servers as seen in this bug. To fix this update to a newer version such as 4.2.7p326. Tried running version 4.2.6p5 but was receiving segfaults while running debian 6.0.4 squeeze with kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64.

sudo apt-get remove ntp ntpdate
wget http://archive.ntp.org/ntp4/ntp-dev/ntp-dev-4.2.7p326.tar.gz
tar xzvf ntp-dev-4.2.7p326.tar.gz
cd ntp-dev-4.2.7p326/
./configure --enable-clockctl
sudo make && make install

You then just need to setup your init script to start ntpd.

Firefox and wrong ELF class error

If you running a system that newer than say 8 years your probably running a 64-bit processor. Now weather you're running a 64-bit OS is another story. Well if you're like me, you probably are running a 64-bit OS, linux of course!

Recently I had a little bit of time and wanted to make sure all my systems were up-to-date, starting with their browsers. Currently I am running Debian squeeze which comes with GNU browser Iceweasel and found out there is no recent update. However you can get the latest through Iceweasel's new name... IceCat. Well I didn't feel like using that so I decided to change to Firefox......
