How-to : Relocate iTunes folders to different drive/partition

-

Using any of the iDevices with PC computer with Windows 7 will enfornce us to use iTunes as application which can synchronize content of a device with PC, backup device to the computer, etc. By default iTunes will create all folders for content synchronization between PC and iDevice on C: drive. However, sometimes this might be inconvinient, especially if someone has multiple partitions on hard disk dedicated for certain type of content. Also, when number of applications, music files and movies is growing on iDevice iTunes can consume lot of space, so this might be reasonable to move iTunes content to another partition or disk on our system. I will show quick way how ot make iTunes data move smooth and transparent for our device.

How-To : Autostart Parsoid on openSUSE 13.1

-

Once Parsoid is installed on openSUSE it might be handy to have is started automatically once system is restarted.

First we have to create startup script.

/etc/init.d/parsoid

#!/bin/sh

#
# description: Node.js /srv/parsoid/api/server.js
#

. /etc/rc.status

USER="root"

DAEMON="/usr/bin/node"
ROOT_DIR="/srv/parsoid/api"
LOG_ROOT="/var/log/nodejs"

SERVER="$ROOT_DIR/server.js"
LOG_FILE="$LOG_ROOT/parsoid.log"

LOCK_FILE="/var/lock/subsys/node-server"

WORKERS_NUMBER=8

do_start()
{
if [ ! -f "$LOCK_FILE" ] ; then
echo -n $"Starting $SERVER: "
runuser -l "$USER" -c "$DAEMON $SERVER -n $WORKERS_NUMBER >> $LOG_FILE &" && echo || echo
RETVAL=$?
echo
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch $LOCK_FILE
else
echo "$SERVER is locked."
RETVAL=1
fi
}
do_stop()
{
echo -n $"Stopping $SERVER: "
pid=`ps -aefw | grep "$DAEMON $SERVER" | grep -v " grep " | awk '{print $2}'`
kill -9 $pid > /dev/null 2>&1 && echo || echo
RETVAL=$?
echo
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && rm -f $LOCK_FILE
}

case "$1" in
start)
do_start
;;
stop)
do_stop
;;
restart)
do_stop
do_start
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}"
RETVAL=1
esac

exit $RETVAL
Remember to adjust all paths and number of worker processes accordingly to your installation.

Once startup script is in place we have to enable Parsoid to be automatically started:

chkconfig parsoid on

From now on Parsoid will be automatically started after each restart.
