Resize VirtualBox LVM Storage

VirtualBox is a free solution to host virtual machines on your computer. It provides configuration options for many components on our machine such as memory, storage, networking, etc. It also allows us to resize our machine storage after its operating system is installed. LVM is a volume manager in a Linux platform that helps us to allocate partitions in the system and configure the storage size that will be utilized for a specific volume group. There are some points to be noticed when we work with LVM on VirtualBox to resize our storage. These are some steps that need to be performed.

1. Stop your machine before resizing the storage.

2. Set new storage size using GUI by selecting "File > Virtual Media Manager > Properties" then find the desired virtual hard disk name that will be resized. OR, by running a CLI program located in "Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe". 

cd "/c/Program Files/Oracle/VirtualBox"
./VBoxManage.exe list hdds
./VBoxManage.exe modifyhd <UUID> --resize <size in MB>

3. Run your machine

4. Check your virtual group path by running df -lh, then find a path that is mounted on /. For example, it may be displayed similar to /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv

5. Check un-partitioned disk by running fdisk -l

6. If an error message like "GPT PMBR size mismatch (20971519 != 61439999) will be corrected by w(rite)." is shown, it means we utilize GPT partitioned drives. Run parted -l then type "Fix". If you run fdisk -l, an error message won't be displayed.

7. Add a new partition.

  • fdisk /dev/sda
  • m to see available commands
  • n create a new partition
  • The partition number is set to the default value
  • The first sector is set to the default value. It is based on the last sector of the existing partition + 1.
  • The last sector is set to the default value
  • p to show partitions table
  • w write changes

8. Check virtual group name by running pvscan. For example, "ubuntu-vg"

9. Review the new partition number, for example, "/dev/sda4". Create physical volume for the new partition by running pvcreate /dev/sda4.

10. Extend new physical volume to a virtual group by running vgextend ubuntu-vg /dev/sda4.

11. Review virtual group path, for example, "/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv", expand the size by running lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv

12. Resize file system by running resize2fs /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv

Setting Up Next.js Project With ESLint, Typescript, and AirBnB Configuration

If we initiate a Next.js project using the  create-next-app tool, our project will be included with ESLint configuration that we can apply using yarn run lint . By default, the tool installs eslint-config-next and extends next/core-web-vitals in the ESLint configuration. The Next.js configuration has been integrated with linting rules for React and several other libraries and tools. yarn create next-app --typescript For additional configuration such as AirBnB, it is also possible. First, we need to install the peer dependencies of eslint-config-airbnb . We also add support for Typescript using eslint-config-airbnb-typescript . yarn add --dev eslint-config-airbnb eslint-plugin-import eslint-plugin-jsx-a11y eslint-plugin-react eslint-plugin-react-hooks yarn add --dev eslint-config-airbnb-typescript @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin @typescript-eslint/parser After that, we can update the .eslintrc.json file for the new configuration. { "extends": [ "airb

Rangkaian Sensor Infrared dengan Photo Dioda

Keunggulan photodioda dibandingkan LDR adalah photodioda lebih tidak rentan terhadap noise karena hanya menerima sinar infrared, sedangkan LDR menerima seluruh cahaya yang ada termasuk infrared. Rangkaian yang akan kita gunakan adalah seperti gambar di bawah ini. Pada saat intensitas Infrared yang diterima Photodiode besar maka tahanan Photodiode menjadi kecil, sedangkan jika intensitas Infrared yang diterima Photodiode kecil maka tahanan yang dimiliki photodiode besar. Jika  tahanan photodiode kecil  maka tegangan  V- akan kecil . Misal tahanan photodiode mengecil menjadi 10kOhm. Maka dengan teorema pembagi tegangan: V- = Rrx/(Rrx + R2) x Vcc V- = 10 / (10+10) x Vcc V- = (1/2) x 5 Volt V- = 2.5 Volt Sedangkan jika  tahanan photodiode besar  maka tegangan  V- akan besar  (mendekati nilai Vcc). Misal tahanan photodiode menjadi 150kOhm. Maka dengan teorema pembagi tegangan: V- = Rrx/(Rrx + R2) x Vcc V- = 150 / (150+10) x Vcc V- = (150/160) x 5

Kerusakan pada Motherboard

1. Sering terjadi hang memory tidak cocok --- ganti memory ada virus di harddisk --- scan harddisk over clock --- seting kembali clock prosesor ada bad sector di harddisk --- partisi harddisk dengan benar 2. Pembacaan data menjadi lambat memori tidak cukup --- tambah memori harddisk penuh atau ada virus --- kurangi isi harddisk, scan harddisk, atau ganti hardisk 3. CMOS failure baterai habis --- ganti baterai CMOS seting BIOS berubah --- seting kembali BIOS 4. Tidak bisa booting cache memory rusak --- disable eksternal cache memory di BIOS memori tidak cocok --- ganti memori boot sector pada harddisk rusak --- masukkan operating system baru ada bad sector pada trek awal harddisk --- partisi harddisk 5. Suara bip panjang berkali-kali memori rusak --- periksa kedudukan memori memori tidak cocok --- ganti memori memori tidak masuk slot dengan sempurna --- periksa kembali kedudukan memori 6. Suara bip bagus tetapi tidak ada tampilan / bip dua kali VGA card

Raspberry Pi Bluetooth Connection

Raspberry Pi 3 provides a built-in Bluetooth module. The latest Raspbian has been bundled with tools for enabling Bluetooth connection. The Bluetooth icon will be shown up on the top right corner of the desktop. It's a tool to discover available Bluetooth devices and connect Pi with Bluetooth devices. It is easy to connect any Bluetooth-enabled electronic device with Pi. But, sometimes Pi will fail to connect, especially for Bluetooth device that has no standardized services. From a terminal, we can use the  bluetoothctl tool to scan and connect with a Bluetooth device. You should make sure that the BlueZ protocol stack has been installed by running $ apt-get install bluez Run bluetoothctl to enter the tool command window Turn the power on by running power on (Optional) You can set AutoEnable=true in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf if you want to make the Bluetooth auto power-on after reboot. Run devices to see which devices have been paired Run scan on if your desired d

Pemrograman Paralel dengan CUDA

CUDA ( Compute Unified Device Architecture ) adalah suatu skema yang dibuat oleh NVIDIA agar NVIDIA selaku GPU ( Graphic Processing Unit ) mampu melakukan komputasi tidak hanya untuk pengolahan grafis namun juga untuk tujuan umum. Jadi, dengan CUDA, kita dapat memanfaatkan cukup banyak  processor  yang dimiliki oleh NVIDIA untuk berbagai perhitungan. GPU yang ada  saat ini seperti ATI pun sudah memiliki banyak processor di dalamnya. Pada ATI, skema yang mereka bangun disebut ATI Stream. Saat ini pemrograman paralel menjadi sangat penting karena kebutuhan kemampuan komputasi komputer yang terus meningkat seperti kemampuan multitasking  dan pengolahan grafis yang andal. Metode saat ini dalam peningkatan peforma komputer juga berbeda dengan masa lampau dimana peningkatan clock  dari processor  yang diutamakan. Peningkatan clock  juga dibatasi oleh kemampuan fisik dari perangkat digital yaitu persoalan daya dan panas. Pada 2005 berbagai industri komputer mulai menawakan komputer den
