How To Reset Root Password On CentOS 7 | Unixmen
I dunno what the '.autorelabel' SELinux thing is all about, but it DEFinitely seems to be required.

1. boot into single user mode
- ∆ kernel command line from 'ro' to 'rw init=/sysroot/bin/sh'
2. chroot /sysroot
3. chroot /sysroot
4. touch /.autorelabel # totally 100% required!
5. exit # probably not necessary, just reboot</code>

Install Elasticsearch with RPM | Elasticsearch Reference [7.5] | Elastic
An alternative package which contains only features that are available under the Apache 2.0 license is also available. To install it, use the following baseurl in your elasticsearch.repo file:

Not positive how fussy GitLab is about the *exact* version (it says 5.6 - 6.x here -, but unsurprisingly you can get Elasticsearch 6.x OSS packages with this 'baseurl' instead:

SystemRescueCd - Installing SystemRescueCd on a USB stick |
Follow this method is you want to boot the USB device in UEFI mode. The idea is to create a FAT32 partition on the device where the firmware will find Grub. For the UEFI firmware to use this partition as the EFI filesystem is must have the right flags in the partition table. The USB device can have additional partitions.

- **Download** the latest SystemRescueCd ISO image from the [download page](
- **Create a msdos** disklabel on the USB device using a tool such as parted or gparted
- **Create a FAT32 partition** with at least 2GB on the USB device and set `SYSRCDXYZ` as the filesystem label
- **Set the boot and lba flags on the FAT32 partition** using a tool such as parted or gparted
- **Copy all files from the ISO image to the FAT32 partition** from a terminal with both devices mounted

In the previous steps `SYSRCDXYZ` refers to the version number, eg: `SYSRCD601` for SystemRescueCd-6.0.1.

Writing Vim Plugins / Steve Losh
Except when it isn't, and then you need to 'call pathogen#helptags()'. Dunno why.
Creating a help document is as easy as creating a doc/yourplugin.txt file in your project. It will be indexed automatically by pathogen#helptags() so your users will have the docs at their fingertips.

Create a recovery drive |
This seems to also be how you *delete* the existing recovery drive (which is 300-some megabytes) from the PC. This seems to be necessary in order to extend the Window OS system partition?

Man pages for Git Bash on Windows 7 - Super User |
Yeah, if you want man pages by default, it's actually more prudent to do a default install of Cygwin.

You /could/ install Python, then 'pip install tldr', but that's not a good solution for a workshop.
