CloudFlare mod_cloudflare WHM EasyApache4 CloudLinux Cannot load modules/mod_cloudflare.so

Being a CloudFlare certified partner, all of my servers are running with CloudFlare WHM/cPanel plugin installed, as well as Railgun, but after upgrading one of my CentOS 6.9 servers to use EasyApache4, the real visitor IP was no longer showing in the access and error logs (CloudFlare IP was showing), and when attempting to restart Apache2 (httpd) I kept getting the “undefined symbol: ap_log_rerror” error, which CloudFlare and cPanel, were not very helpful at all in figuring out the problem … but I was able to figure it out, and here’s how to fix it (more…)

How to install GNU Radio, FFTW, RTL SDR, GrOsmoSDR, and more using PyBombs with dependencies, by rpm/deb or build from source

Recently I purchased a Mini SDR (DVB-T) from NooElec to play around with some RF and do some testing, but for some reason kept running into problems while trying to build GNU Radio on Debian (Ubuntu/Linux Mint) from the git repos.  I attempted to use the version from the standard repository, but unfortunately that version is old and out dated (I think 1.6 was in repo, but 1.7.2 is latest), so the only option was to build from source.  I swear I probably spent 4 hours trying to figure out why certain dependencies wouldn’t install, then I would get one to install, and another one would come up…add to that for the testing I wanted to do I needed to install FFTW, RTL SDR, and GrOsmoSDR, which is when I finally decided to find a better way to build from source (or find latest version deb/rpm).
