Docker… What a blessing, what a curse. These articles describe some of my solutions to some of the issues I’ve run into.
This article explains our solution to a very particular use case. We needed to go through .csproj files, find certain dependencies from them, and then figure out their versions. And all of this needed to happen in an Azure DevOps pipeline. But when would this be helpful? Well, hear me…Continue reading How to find out dependency versions in your .csproj files using PowerShell?
This article explains how to install Home Assistant on your Synology NAS device using Container Manager and Web Station. This probably applies to DSM 7.2+ on any somewhat modern Synology DiskStation device. A lot of the steps also apply if you’re setting up ANY containers to run on your NAS,…Continue reading How to install Home Assistant on Synology NAS (DSM 7.2)?
Another (possibly?) timely and weird one here! This article explains how to work around Azure DevOps suddenly stopping to play nice with Docker and the rest of our tooling and causing all builds to fail with oddly non-descript error messages. Annoying to deal with but not the end of the…Continue reading Azure DevOps pipelines suddenly failing with “##[error]#0 building with default instance using docker driver”
This quick blog post explains a couple of very simple fixes – essentially, user errors – to a simple problem that you might run into with Visual Studio when developing the latest of your cool Azure bits. Well, to be fair, a few simple fixes and one heavyweight. A final…Continue reading The simplest fixes to “500 (Internal Server Error)” from Azurite
So another simple one. (I just seem to run into all of the issues whenever I try to do the simplest thing with Docker!) Or with anything, I guess – but yeah, that’s another article then. This time about any docker commands failing (no matter what command and with what…Continue reading Solving “invalid reference format.” when trying to run almost any docker commands
Okay – another one of the topics that I’m explaining probably more to myself than whoever’s reading this later. But that’s why I write this blog, so please bear with me. 🙂 Anyway, onto the actual issue at hand! I was configuring Docker on WSL on my Windows laptop for…Continue reading Upgrade from WSL 1 to WSL 2 in Windows 10 to fix Docker
This article explains how you can move your Home Assistant’s SQLite database files to another location by mapping them to another volume in Docker. Using Docker on Windows. Which might not be a smart move, but it’s one I went with anyway. The article will explain how to do this…Continue reading How to move the Home Assistant SQLite database in Docker on Windows?
Another one in the series of “random things that break when you try to run Docker on Windows”! I was just minding my own business, trying to run an Azure IoT Edge custom module – a Docker container, really – locally, when suddenly everything broke and one of my Docker…Continue reading How to fix “exec user process caused: no such file or directory” in Docker on Windows?
This article will explain how to run your arbitrary SQL commands against a Postgre SQL database running in a Docker container in Windows. That should be super simple, but since I never remember anything like this by heart, I had to google it – and turns out, either I didn’t…Continue reading How to run SQL commands in a Postgre SQL Docker container?
This was another (luckily pretty shallow) rabbit hole down some corporate IT and weird default configurations by our favorite tech-daddy Microsoft. In this article, I will describe one possible reason for a process called Vmmem.exe consuming enough RAM to crash pretty much everything else running on your machine. But let’s…Continue reading How to solve Vmmem consuming ungodly amounts of RAM when running WSL?
