Yubikey, Suspend and Restore

Another one of those quickies that can save you some time. When my Linux laptop resumed from sleep, I was annoyed that DrDuh’s perfect Yubikey setup would throw me the following when I tried to SSH: sign_and_send_pubkey: signing failed: agent refused operation Seems like the key doesn’t like being put to sleep and woken up. Another annoyance, for some reason, also when waking up, laptop’s touchpad was disabled. So I put this little script in /lib/systemd/system-sleep:

Start pkgsrc's nginx with systemd

Not so long ago, I wrote about using pkgsrc on Debian GNU/Linux, and assumed you’d start an installed service using rc.d. When I setup the new server, I decided to give a try to kvm as it is easier to maintain, has good performances (sometimes better than Xen), nice administration tools, plus NetBSD now has a good VirtIO driver but no PVHVM support yet. The first thing I do when setting up a Debian Jessie server is getting rid of systemd, whose philosophy and quality don’t match my personnal taste; but in that case, I wanted to use libvirtd so I could manage my virtual machines with virt-manager, and as a matter of fact, libvirtd has a hard dependency on systemd.
