Automatic Start-up and Configuration, auto start.#Auto #start


Automatic Start-up and Configuration

Normally, running a Chromium configuration involves starting the mothership then one or more server nodes ( crserver ) and application nodes ( crappfaker ). With the auto-start / auto-config feature you can simply run an OpenGL program normally and have it run on Chromium.

Auto-Start

The node.AutoStart() function allows you to execute an arbitrary shell command in order to spawn the Chromium crserver and crappfaker programs. This saves you from having to manually starting the programs yourself.

To start, let’s define two strings with some environment variables and the name of the program to run:

Now, here’s an example of how to autmatically start a crserver on a remote host named “mars” using rsh:

Here’s an example of how to autmatically start a crserver on the local host just using sh:

To start the crappfaker instead of crserver , just change the prog assignment above.

Basically, the AutoStart() function takes a list of command line arguments which are passed to the Python os.spawnv() function.

We use /bin/sh (the Bourne shell) to be sure that the environment variables will be interpreted correctly. You may have to do some tinkering to make things work correctly on your system. Some things to check:

  • Manually check that rsh or sh works without having to type in a password.
  • Check where sh and rsh live in your filesystem and set the paths accordingly.
  • Add extra environment vars as needed, such as CRMOTHERSHIP , if they’re not set in your .bashrc file.
  • To debug things, try typing the rsh or sh commands in a terminal window and see what happens (instead of using AutoStart right away).

Auto-Config

Auto-Config is a feature that automatically starts the mothership when you run an OpenGL program. In turn, the mothership can automatically start all the crappfaker and crserver processes (as described above). The end result is that users can run their OpenGL programs in the normal manner and automatically use Chromium.

This example assumes that Chromium is located in /usr/local/Chromium-x.y . Adjust these instructions accordingly if you have Chromium installed elsewhere.

The following steps need to be taken:

1. (For Unix/Linux) Use libcrfaker.so instead of libGL.so

We have to trick the OpenGL application into using the crfaker library instead of the normal OpenGL library. One solution is to create symbolic links from libcrfaker.so to libGL.so and libGL.so.1 and then use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to tell the application where to find the library. For example:

1. (For Microsoft Windows) Use libcrfaker.dll instead of opengl32.dll

We have to trick the OpenGL application into using the crfaker library instead of the normal OpenGL library. One solution is to copy the libcrfaker.dll to opengl32.dll and then use the PATH environment variable to tell the application where to find the library. This will ensure that the new opengl32.dll will be picked up before the system’s version.

2. Make a configuration file

A good way to make a configuration file is with the graphical configuration tool. You might make, for example, a tilesort configuration.

Make sure your configuration:

  • Sets the Automatically Start Servers option (from the Mothership / Options menu).
  • Sets the System GL Path option for the render SPUs so that the real OpenGL library is found.
  • Do not set the Command option for the application node (from the Node / App Node Options menu).

Save your configuration to a file such as /usr/local/Chromium-x.y/cr/mothership/configs/myconfig.conf

For the time being, you may have to edit your configuration file and specify the full path to the Chromium server’s python directory:

Otherwise, the configuration script may not be able to find the mothership.py file.

3. Set up the .crconfigs file

The .crconfigs file is expected to be in your home directory (i.e. at /home/joe/.crconfigs ). If it’s not found there, Chromium will look in the current directory when you start your application.

The .crconfigs file maps program names to configuration names. Each line of the file is of the format:

Here’s an example:

This example specifies configuration files for the atlantis and city programs.

In the case of the city configuration, two optional command line arguments are given to the tilecity script to set the mural rows and columns.

The * (asterisk) entry denotes a default to use when there is no other match.

The %p sequence will be replaced by the program name. If %d is present, it will be replaced by the current working directory. if %m is present, it will be replaced by a a randomly chosen mothership port number. The spawned mothership will listen on that port.

4. The CR_CONFIG_PATH and CR_CONFIG environment variables

If the CR_CONFIG_PATH environment variable is set, it will provide an alternate file to look in for configuration. The file contents are identical to that in .crconfigs . It is merely an alternate way of specifying the location. Here’s an example:

setenv CR_CONFIG_PATH “/tmp/autostart.conf”

If the CR_CONFIG environment variable is set, the .crconfigs file is not processed and no matching for program names is done. Instead, the contents of the CR_CONFIG variable are used instead to identify which mothership configuration file is to be used. The same syntax is used as for the configuration section of a line in the .crconfigs file. Here’s an example:

“/usr/local/Chromium-x.y/cr/mothership/configs/tilecity.conf -r1 -c2”

Run it!

At this point running a program, such as city, should cause everything to start automatically. Here’s what happens:

  • The application (effectively linked to libcrfaker.so instead of libGL.so ) will make a GLX call which initialized the faker library.
  • The faker library will try to contact the mothership, and fail (since it’s not running).
  • The faker library will look for the CR_CONFIG environment variable or lookup the program name in the .crconfigs file.
  • The faker will now have the name of a configuration (possibly with command line arguments).
  • The faker will try to spawn (fork/exec) the mothership, specifying the configuration and command line arguments.
  • The mothership will start and create a thread that will spawn the crserver nodes. The servers will load their SPUs.
  • The faker will contact the mothership and load its SPUs.
  • Chromium will now be running.

Trouble shooting

Here are some things to check if this doesn’t work:

  • (Unix/Linux only) Run ldd programname and verify that you’re linked against the faker library. You should see something like this:

How to Setup XenServer 6, auto start.#Auto #start


Knowledge Center

Applicable Products

Objective

In XenServer versions 6.x, the direct GUI ability to auto-start a Virtual Machine on startup of XenServer was removed. This article describes how to set Virtual Machines to auto-start.

Requirements

XenServer version 6.x

Background

In XenServer 6.x, the auto-start functionality was removed because it interfered with High Availability (HA) and produced unexpected results during HA functions.

Instructions

Setting the XenServer to allow Auto-Start

Gather the UUIDs of the pools you wish to auto-start.

To get the list of the pools on your XenServer, run “xe pool-list

Copy the UUID of the pool. If you have just one server, it will still have a pool UUID as noted in the following

Then type the following command to set the pool or server to allow auto-start:

xe pool-param-set uuid=UUID other-config:auto_poweron=true

Note: Replacing UUID with the UUID of the XenServer or pool.

Setting the Virtual Machines to Auto-Start

Gather the UUIDs of the Virtual Machine you want to auto-start by running xe vm-list.

Note: This generates a list of Virtual Machines in your pool or server and their associated UUIDs.

Copy the UUID of the Virtual Machines you want to auto-start, and run the following command for each Virtual Machine to auto-start:

xe vm-param-set uuid=UUID other-config:auto_poweron=true

Note: Replace UUID with the UUID of the Virtual Machine to auto-start. obtained in step 1

In Windows, how can I prevent a program from starting automatically, auto start.#Auto #start


Auto start Indiana University Indiana University Indiana University

In Windows, how can I prevent a program from starting automatically?

Often, a program starts automatically in Windows because of a shortcut in the Startup folder in the Start menu. The program may also run automatically from a registry entry. Following are three sets of directions you can follow to remove programs from automatic startup. After you have gone through each set of steps, reboot your computer to see if the problem is fixed. If necessary, you can then continue to the next set of instructions.

Removing a shortcut

To remove a shortcut from the Startup folder:

Windows 10 and 8.x

  1. Press Win-r . In the “Open:” field, type:
  • Right-click the program you don’t want to open at startup and click Delete .
  • Windows 7

    1. From the Start menu, click All Programs , and then click Startup .
    2. Right-click the program you don’t want to open at startup and click Delete .

    Correcting a shortcut path

    If a shortcut you want in the Startup folder is pointing to the wrong program, correct it as follows:

    1. In the Startup folder, right-click the appropriate icon and select Properties .
    2. Click the Shortcut tab. In the “Target:” field, verify that the path statement points to the filename of the correct program. If it does not, enter the accurate path to the program.

    Disabling items not in the Startup folder

    Some startup items have no shortcut in the Startup folder. You can disable these with either the Task Manager in Windows 10 and 8.x, or the System Configuration Utility ( msconfig.exe ) in Windows 7. Otherwise, they are only accessible through the registry. If you are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with registry editing, use these utilities.

    Task Manager (Windows 10 and 8.x)

    1. Navigate to the Task Manager.

    System Configuration Utility (Windows 7)

    1. Press Win-r . In the “Open:” field, type msconfig and press Enter .
    2. Click the Startup tab.
    3. Uncheck the items you do not want to launch on startup.

    Removing a registry entry

    To remove a startup entry from the registry:

    1. Press Win-r . In the “Open:” field, type regedit and press Enter .
    2. To save a backup copy of the registry, from the File menu, select Export. .
      1. Make sure to note the file’s destination; by default, it will be saved on the desktop.
      2. Give the file an obvious name, such as registry or regback , so that you’ll remember this file is your registry backup.
      3. In the “Export Range” field, make sure All is selected, and then click Save . This will make a backup of a working registry.
    3. To expand HKEY LOCAL MACHINE , click the + (plus sign) to the left.
    4. Expand the SOFTWARE tree. Then expand Microsoft , then Windows , and then CurrentVersion .
    5. Highlight the Run folder. On the right side of the screen, you will see programs that are set to run on startup that might not be included in the Startup folder. Some of these may be important programs, such as antivirus programs or firewalls. There also may be undesirable or unnecessary programs, such as spyware and advertisement software. You’ll need to ascertain what is needed and what is not.
    6. Highlight any program(s) you want to prevent from starting automatically, and then press the Del key. Remember that deleting programs here does not remove them from your computer; it only stops them from running automatically.
    7. Changes to the registry are implemented immediately, so you do not need to save your changes. At this point, you may simply close the Registry Editor.

    Windows process – What is it, auto start.#Auto #start


    What is autostart.exe?

    The .exe extension on a filename indicates an exe cutable file. Executable files may, in some cases, harm your computer. Therefore, please read below to decide for yourself whether the autostart.exe on your computer is a Trojan that you should remove, or whether it is a file belonging to the Windows operating system or to a trusted application.

    Autostart.exe file information

    Description: Autostart.exe is not essential for the Windows OS and causes relatively few problems. The autostart.exe file is located in a subfolder of “C:\Program Files”. The file size on Windows 10/8/7/XP is 20,480 bytes. Auto start

    The program has a visible window. The process starts upon Windows startup (see Registry key: Run , MACHINE\Run , User Shell Folders ). The autostart.exe file is not a Windows system file. autostart.exe appears to be a compressed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 22% dangerous, however you should also read the user reviews.

    • If autostart.exe is located in C:\, the security rating is 36% dangerous. The file size is 932,184 bytes. The program is not visible. It is digitally signed. The file is not a Windows core file. Autostart.exe is able to record keyboard and mouse inputs and manipulate other programs.
    • If autostart.exe is located in a subfolder of the user s profile folder , the security rating is 36% dangerous. The file size is 21,538 bytes. The program has a visible window. There is no description of the program. The program starts upon Windows startup (see Registry key: Run , MACHINE\Run , User Shell Folders ). The autostart.exe file is not a Windows core file. autostart.exe appears to be a compressed file.

    Windows 7 comes with the ability to automatically run programs every time you boot your computer. Although some programs auto-run by default, you can make any program load automatically when you boot your Windows 7 computer. This can help you quickly get to work if you have one or more programs you always use on your office computer. The method to having a program auto-run when your computer starts is the same no matter which version of Windows 7 you are using.

    1. Open the Start menu and click All Programs.

    2. Right-click the Startup folder. Click Open from the pop-up menu.

    3. Right-click the program you want to open at Startup and click Create Shortcut. The shortcut will appear in the same location as the original program; for example, if the program is on the desktop, the shortcut will appear on the desktop.

    4. Right-click the shortcut and click Cut.

    5. Right-click any open space in the Startup folder and click Paste to add the shortcut to the folder.

    6. Reboot your computer. The program you placed in the Startup folder will auto-run when the computer turns back on.

    • You can also place individual files in the Startup folder to open those files when the computer boots.
    • Delete a program from the Startup folder to stop it from running when the computer boots.

    When Honda started selling vehicles in the United States in 1972, it was the first Japanese auto manufacturer to enter the US market. Through vehicles like the Civic, Honda quickly developed a reputation for reliable, affordable midsize cars. Honda’s success paved the way for other manufacturers to enter the US market, pushing American manufacturers to improve the quality of their vehicles.

    Honda’s more popular US cars consist of the Fit, Civic, Accord, Insight, CR-V, CR-Z, Legend and the Odyssey. An early proponent of developing vehicles to cater to different needs and markets worldwide, Honda’s lineup varies by country and may feature vehicles exclusive to that region. A few examples are the latest Honda Odyssey minivan and the Ridgeline, Honda’s first light-duty uni-body pickup truck. Both were designed and engineered primarily in North America.

    Today, Honda remains true to its commitment to manufacturing dependable, fuel efficient cars. If you’re looking for a quality vehicle that gets great mileage, you still won’t find many options better than the wildly popular Honda Civic and Accord.

    Advantages of a Car Insurance Calculator

    Car insurance calculators are helpful for many reasons, such as these:

    • The ability to compare rates between companies
    • Best rates available, as companies are competing
    • Rates specific to the state in which you live
    • The opportunity to compare quotes by changing coverage
    • An view of rates in relationship to criteria you specify

    What Affects Insurance Rates?

    Rates are affected by numerous variables.

    • Age and Sex
    • Driving habits
    • The state in which you reside
    • Number of vehicle accidents
    • Number of miles on your car
    • Average miles driven per year
    • DUI-DWI convictions and SR22 insurance
    • Moving violations
    • Model and year of your vehicle

    The more coverage you elect the more your rate goes up. As an example if you choose $300,000 in liability, you’ll pay a lot more than if you go with $80,000. Why would you choose to pay for more liability coverage? There are a few reasons.

    First, there’s peace of mind. The fact is in an accident you can find yourself liable for $500,000 or more in damages, which might include destruction of property and injuries to those in your vehicle or other vehicles, including suffering and hospital bills.

    Coverage Levels

    With regards to your state insurance coverage requirements, there are 3 principal classifications to examine: Bodily Injury, Property Damage, and Under/Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury. These tend to be the areas where states vary in the amount of minimal protection that is needed for each of the 3 areas. The higher the coverage the higher your monthly rates will be.

    Criteria used to calculate rates of car insurance:

    Age. Sorry to say, but younger drivers should expect to pay a lot more for insurance policy. Young motorists tend to be more susceptible to accidents (statistically speaking), consequently insurance companies require a higher premium from persons between the ages of 16 to 26. Your age is among the biggest factors impacting the amount you pay for insurance policy.

    Gender. Men are going to pay much more for car insurance. Men are more prone to speed, drive after drinking, drive carelessly and even less likely to wear a seat-belt. Just like your age, there’s not very much you can do regarding your gender.

    Vehicle. The type of car you drive will have an effect on your insurance premium. Some of the components that determine your insurance rate are:

    • Model of your car: Driving a pickup truck or a SUV will cost you much more than driving a smaller model of auto. Some car’s also are more prone to theft in some states/cities, if your car is on a insurance companies listing of automobiles which has a lower rate of theft you will pay less for car insurance
    • Engine of your car: The more powerful your vehicle the faster it really is and therefore the more probable you can be involved in incidents. This is why larger cars require larger insurance costs, while smaller cars with less potent engines will pay less
    • Value of your car: The more pricey your auto the more your car insurance premium is going to be. More expensive cars have greater costs of repair because difficult to acquire broken parts, there are less specialized repair centers, etc).

    Your location. Living in a city significantly increases the chance of vehicle incidents and theft. If you live in an area with higher crime rates, count on paying more for car insurance. If you live in a city, expect to pay more than you would in case you lived inside a rural area.

    Your Driving history. If you have had a DWI-DUI, speeding tickets or already been ticketed for reckless driving you can expect to spend more for car insurance and will be hard to find cheap SR22 insurance.

    A notary public plays a crucial role in the business world by verifying the authenticity of signatures and documents in legal transactions.

The National Notary Association s website provides in-depth information on study materials, classes and workshops to familiarize you with state laws and regulations, ethics and examples of the types of situations you ll encounter.

This tenure is generally for four years and is renewable upon approval of the appointing authority.

    2. Determine whether you want your notary public business to be a brick and mortar facility, a home office or a mobile unit in which you travel to wherever your clients are.

Take out a doing business as advertisement in your local newspaper. Open a business checking account. As an independent businessperson, you re required to pay federal and state taxes as well as state fees on each of your notary public transactions. Set competitive fees in addition to factoring in expenses, such as mileage and parking.

    4. Have business cards printed with the name of your notary public business, a short list of services that you provide and your contact information. Make the rounds of local banking institutions, mortgage companies, real estate offices, law practices, credit unions, government offices and neighborhood companies. Carry your business cards at all times. Attend networking events through your Chamber of Commerce, nonprofits and community service organizations.

    • Application and licensing fees
    • Bond (approximately $10,000)

    Hello Nkoli,
    These bad schools are still running their programs with the problems they have. I was lucky to find out early before paying any money to them. Right now i am schooling in a community college. One of the schools is on Fairground street in cobb county, can’t remember the name, the other is World Outreach. with 2 branches, one in Atlanta and the other on Austell rd, cobb county. Maybe they have fixed whatever the problems were but i am not ready for risks.

    I asked my friend. we know about the school on fairground street. it’s bad. we haven’t heard of world outreach. The school my friend is thinking about going to says tht clinicals are done in jamaica. have you heard of any schools like that in atl? my friend says she found out about the school from her cousin in decatur. it just seems really wierd that someone would study here and then go all way to jamaica for clincial. anyway, let me know if you know of any of those schools.

    World Outreach Medical Institute is affiliated to a school in Jamaica, another one in downtown Atlanta is also affiliated to a school in Jamaica. I have concluded that it is better to go to a regular school and do all the pre-reqs and get an admission for Nursing. I am doing the pre-reqs and they are not as bad as i thought, i am actually acing them, tell your friend to give it a try instead of losing money with such private schools.

    Ford

    As America’s oldest auto manufacturer, Ford and its vehicles have a special place in American culture. Henry Ford launched the first attempt at a car manufacturer under his own name known as the Henry Ford Company in November of 1901. Eventualy becoming the Cadillac Motor Company on August 22, 1902, after Ford left with the rights to his name. What is known today as the Ford Motor Company was launched in a converted factory in 1903 with twelve investors, most notably John and Horace Dodge (who would later found Dodge ).Vehicles like the Ford F-150 and Mustang have become all-time best sellers thanks to the reputation they’ve developed as solid automobiles for hardworking people.

    During the company’s early years, the Ford Motor Company produced just a few cars a day at its factory in Detroit, Michigan. Groups of two or three men worked on each car, assembling it from parts made mostly by supplier companies contracting for Ford. In keeping with the industrial age, the company lead the world in the expansion and refinement of the assembly line concept. Ford’s reputation for quality and value has helped it become one of the largest car manufacturers in the world. With over 20 vehicles, ranging from the fuel-sipping Hybrid Fusion to the heavy-duty Ranger, Ford offers something for everyone.

    Ford trucks are what the company has since become known for the most, producing trucks since 1908. Ford’s heavy trucks division was sold in 1997 to Freightliner Trucks, which rebranded the lineup as Sterling. Ford continues to manufacture medium duty trucks under the F-650 and F-750 badges. In 2001, the company entered into a joint venture with Navistar International to produce medium duty commercial trucks. Ford has also manufactured vehicles under such well known brand names as Loncoln (1922 to present), Mercury (1939 to 2011), Merkur (1985 to 1989), Jaguar (1989 to 2008), Aston Martin (1989 to 2007), Volvo (1999 to 2010), and Land Rover (2000 to 2008).
