When life gives you lemons…

My week has been challenging to say the least in the respect that I am trying to get stuff done, but things outside my control keep happening.

So today, I told myself I am going to get stuff done.  Here are the things that I learned today.

  1. MySQL 5.7 has a bug in it that prevents you from setting the root password.  You need to start with `skip-grant-tables` then login, run `flush privileges;` and then run `ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘MyNewPass’;`
  2. When Compiling for CentOS7, you need to have systemd-devel installed.
  3. Centos7 put /var/run as a tmpfs partition.  To add a new folder past reboot, add a file in /etc/tmpfiles.d/
  4. Use shopt -s checkwinsize to fix a putty window that wont resize text lines after you resize the window.
