docsis source code install in Ubuntu 8.04



goto docsis-0.9.5 dir

aptitude install m4 bison libsnmp-base libsnmp15 snmpd libsnmp-dev flex


it will look for m4
see if m4 is installed `which m4`
if not, aptitude install m4
if already installed, mod configure script to do the m4 check correctly:
look for this line,

if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xGNU"; then

change it to:
if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xm4"; then

run ./configure again

it will look for bison,
aptitude install bison
and run ./configure again


make sure you install flex or you will get an error from sed about a file not being found

if you get an error about floor:
undefined reference to `floor'

root@tds-stg-dhcp02:~/docsis-0.9.5# vim src/Makefile

look for this line:
LINK = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=link --tag=CC $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) \

and add the math function:
LINK = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=link --tag=CC $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) \
$(AM_LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -lm -o $@

run make again
root@tds-stg-dhcp02:~/docsis-0.9.5# make

make install

root@tds-stg-dhcp02:~/docsis-0.9.5# ls -l /usr/local/bin/docsis
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 164495 2010-02-16 17:31 /usr/local/bin/docsis

Globe's HOOQ.TV an (unethical) scam!!

After being terribly disappointed with the subscription stage and after also after a very disappointing test drive (at least Netflix tries to be do-no-evil), I am now very disappointed with the un-subscription of with Globe.

Globe sends me a message:

Hi! We'd like to remind you that your free HOOQ will end in 7 days on 10/27/2015. Upon expiry, your subscription will auto-renew to the paid version for P149 per month. If you don't want the paid version, text HOOQ STOP to 8888. before the expiry date. Thank you!

I send the HOOQ STOP to 888 and received:

Sorry, you have entered an invalid keyword. Please make sure your keyword is correct with no extra characters and spaces. For more info on promos, dial *143#, FREE from your Globe/TM mobile phone.

I called Globe Support (211).

Here's the scam:

- GoSurf 999 comes with the HOOQ Free Plan

- After the Free HOOQ Plan (which you did not use because it sucks) expires, it will auto-renew without your consent (!!! UNETHICAL !!!…

This runs the PIA VPN using OpenVPN all from the command line.

Modified the following lines.

ld: unrecognized option '--hash-style=both'

gcc -Wl,,-export-dynamic obj_linux-native/socketdev_listener.o \
contiki-linux-native.a -o testv6.linux-native
/usr/local/bin/ld: unrecognized option '--hash-style=both'
/usr/local/bin/ld: use the --help option for usage information
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

If you look closely, the error is something related to the local gcc not using the host's linker (ld).

$ which gcc

$ which ld

For some reason, I messed my compiler path. To synchronized gcc to use the host's dynamic linker (i.e. /usr/bin/ld), set the environment variable COMPILER_PATH to /usr/bin.

$ export COMPILER_PATH=/usr/bin

$ gcc -print-prog-name=ld
