AVM: Powerline Repeater / Fritz Repeater

Last weekend my Powerline Adpater 546E broke. I tried some restarts but after 1-5 minutes the WLAN went down and the adapter got really hot.

Perhaps the missing mesh functionality was due to a hardware problem which caused this total failure.

Never mind. I ordered a Fritz Box Repeater 1160 and followed the instructions from AVM:
Note: If your repeater is already connected to your FritzBox and you perform the firmware update >6.90, then you have to do the integration via WPS once again (enable WPS on your FritzBox, then press WPS button on the repeater).

After that everything was like expected:


Docker-CE on Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) (2)

Three months ago i installed docker on my ubuntu 17.10. At those days there was no straight forward howto on docher.com.

Now the installation is listed on docker.com:

The installation manual can be found here.

Oracle VM Server x86: Installing Oracle VM Manager (getting the installation media)

If you search for "oracle vm manager" on Oracle Edelivery you will get the following:
Downloading "Oracle VM Manager with Oracle Linux" will lead to two files with *.img. These files are no cd/dvd images. But you can find a solution here:

mount -t auto -o loop,offset=$((63*512)) System.img /mnt/System
But this leads to some files with oc4j containers. 

So DO NOT search for "Oracle VM Manager". Use as search string only "VM Manager" and here we go:

Use the "Oracle VM Manager 3.4.4" at the bottom of the page...
(The installation can be found in this posting)
