Check out these early Black Friday SSD deals

Add some speed to your PC with these early Black Friday SSD deals.

Building a PC can get pretty expensive, but Black Friday is usually a pretty good time to pick up the parts you need for cheap (or cheaper, at least). While Black Friday proper doesn't hit until November 26, we're already seeing a ton of deals go live at retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, and more. And some of the best early deals that have popped up so far are for SSDs.

When you're looking for the best SSD for your PC or console, performance and price can vary greatly. However, most can prove to be a serious upgrade to an aging PC, and some of the newer PCIe 4 drives offering truly blistering speeds for motherboards that can handle them. Fortunately, the high price tags that come with those speedier drives have taken a big dip for Black Friday, and some of the more affordable drives are even more affordable.

Whether you're looking to pick up some more storage for your PC, or want to try to grab a speedy PCIe 4 drive for your PlayStation 5, there's plenty to choose from already. More deals will go live as we draw closer to Black Friday. However, with price protection deals in place from retailers like Best Buy, you can snag one early with confidence that you'll pick up the best price.

All of Black Friday's biggest and best deals — all in one place

Black Friday is November 26. That's right around the corner, but if you're determined to wait until the actual day you're also destined to miss out on a ton of fantastic ways to save. Much like Christmas Creep is a real thing that starts as early as October with retailers putting out Christmas lights and decorations, Black Friday Creep seems to get earlier and earlier every year.

Several retailers have already had huge weekend sales and temporary discounts on big ticket items that will rival what we see on Black Friday. Many big site-wide sales are going on as we speak with more to come as the day gets closer and closer. While we will cover the big day with gusto, we've also got everything happening beforehand covered as well. This page will be your guide to all the best deals from all the major retailers, including the crazy prices you can find right now.

We've already seen Amazon kick off its Black Friday ramp-up by renaming its regular deals page to Epic Daily Deals and offering brand new, amazing discounts every single day. We've seen a huge Bose sale and Sony had some big price drops, too. We've seen AirPods and PowerBeats, Bluetooth speakers, and more all down to great low prices through Amazon's pre-Black Friday sales.

Other retailers kicking things off early include Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and more. We've got them all listed right here with links on where to find the best discounts. We'll update as we go, listing all the best places for you to save long before Black Friday. And as more Black Friday details are released, we'll drop those as well. Bookmark this page and stay tuned because this is going to be a holiday shopping season to remember.

What deals are live right now?

The official Black Friday sales won't be live until a week or so out from the big day, but we're seeing prices even now that will rival whatever happens in late November. Even if you're a little unsure if you want to start shopping now, there are a lot of good reasons to do that. For one thing, last year saw one of the largest rises in online shopping ever since most people were at home all winter. That means you might find it harder to get exactly what you want if more and more people are vying for the same stuff. We also saw a lot of shipping delays and order issues as warehouses and retailers got backed up. You don't want to wait if your plan is to get stuff before Christmas.

Here are the retailers offering huge savings for you right now:

What more can you expect from Black Friday?

Last year was a big deal for Black Friday. Online shopping exploded with people stuck at home or not wanting to go out for one reason or the other. The funny thing is, everyone thought it was a fluke due to the special circumstances surrounding 2020. However, it might have just been a wake-up call about how good online shopping is for the regular consumer because 2021 has definitely seen efforts to push people online continue.

With that being said, our expections for Black Friday this year is that it's going to be just as big, if not bigger, than last year. More and more online retailers are making Black Friday pushes. We're especially seeing a lot more out of smaller sites and specialized brands instead of just giant landing pages from major online retailers. Plus, we're seeing a lot of it happen much earlier.

It's not even November yet and retailers are on that Black Friday train. Amazon has renamed its regular deals section to Epic Daily Deals and has been releasing some great brand-specific sales from Bose to Sony to Samsung. Many of the best prices we've seen have been exactly the sort of discounts we'd expect to see on Black Friday, and while they might get matched on the big day we're betting they won't be beat. What we're seeing from Amazon is definitely what you can expect to find dropping in price on Black Friday: Bluetooth earbuds, speakers, OLED TVs, and the like.

What other electronics will be seeing discounts on Black Friday? We don't know for sure, but we can make an educated guess based on what's popular and what sold well last year. If you're looking for something specific, expect to see great deals on home security devices like video doorbells and cameras, smart devices like multi-color smart lights and Nest thermostats, more TV deals than you can count including some of the best prices on previous generations as we've already seen from Amazon's Epic Daily Deals, and more. We know smart displays are still goiing to be big. Facebook Portal already has deals on its newest devices, and Amazon Echo tablets always sell like hotcakes. You'll find savings on robot vacuums, smartwatches like the Apple Watch, laptops, and more.

How can you make sure you're getting the best deals on Black Friday?

Well, first off, you can keep watching this page and the rest of our Black Friday coverage. Rest assured we have a team of people working through all the thousands of bad deals to find the absolute best ones. We will have roundups and guides and plenty of posts to help you sort through the noise of Black Friday and spend your money wisely, whether that means you're looking for presents for your family or just want something nice for yourself.

You can also do your own homework. When you find something you think might be a deal, compare its price to what it was going for a month ago. If you find something at a different retailer than you normally shop at, check to see if your favorite place will price match or already has. A lot of price drops come from the manufacturers and can be found in multiple locations.

You should also keep in mind that things aren't always as they seem. Be wary of retailers that boast discounts from the MSRP because most things never sell at the MSRP. Also keep in mind that a lot of products get a price bump in September or October so that the deal price on Black Friday looks even more attractive.

Also, some manufacturers make things specifically for Black Friday. TVs in particular get a lot of "Black Friday models" that are sold for much less than the normal versions. That's not always a bad thing. If you can get the exact same TV and the only real difference is a worse remote and 90 local dimming zones instead of 120, maybe it's worth the better price. But keep in mind that those models haven't been tested the way earlier releases have.

What deals are live right now?

We cover deals all year long, not just on Black Friday or Prime Day. We also follow multiple retailers to find all the best sales. With a huge team of writers and editors that review products all day, every day, it's easy for us to spot great products, too. That way when we put up a deal, you know what you're getting isn't just a great price but a great piece of tech as well.

Here are some of the deals we've covered recently that are still live:

Razer & Turtle Beach gaming accessories

If you need a new headset or a new controller, check out this sale that includes options from both Razer and Turtle Beach. You'll be talking to your friends or having them join you for some couch gaming in no time. These deals are good through the end of the month.

Razer now makes PC hardware you can install inside the case

Razer joined the PC build server.

What you need to know

  • Razer announces new range of PC components consisting of power supplies, AIO coolers, fans, and a controller hub.
  • The new products are designed for use with Razer's Chroma system. Even the power supplies come rocking RGB lights.
  • Availability commences this month (fans and controller only) for the U.S. with the rest of the world following later in 2021.

Razer isn't a brand you'd normally associate with internal PC hardware, but that's all about to change with today's announcement. The company tested the waters with the Tomahawk PC case and now Razer is ready to get into making components to fit inside the chassis.

Today's lunch includes the Razer Kunai, Razer Hanbo, Razer Katana, and Razer PWM Fan Controller. This new portfolio consists of all-in-one water coolers, power supplies, hydraulic fans, and a controller for hooking up all your blowers. As is the case with all other Razer hardware, there's plenty of RGB lighting through Chroma.

This marks a substantial milestone for Razer. Starting with the Hanbo AIOs, which comes with a CPU block and pump combo unit that can be rotated and has addressable RGB lighting. The pump is by Asetek as is the case with such kits from other brands and should be rated for use with Intel Core i9 and AMD Ryzen 9 processors.

For now, the Hanbo will be available as a 240mm and 360mm AIO, though both come with the new RGB-touting Razer Kunai hydraulic fans, available separately in 120mm or 140mm. The Kunai fans start from $44.99. They will also be able to be connected to the Razer PWM PC Fan Controller, which costs $49.99. No word on Razer Hanbo pricing just yet.

The Razer Katana are 80 Plus Platinum rated for efficiency, which puts them above some of the more popular power supplies out there. Wattage capacity will range between 750W and 1,200W, making even the most affordable option ideal for a gaming rig with the latest GPU. If you do require a little more juice, Razer will offer a separate 1,600W unit that's 80 Plus Titanium rated. The PSUs are capable of running in zero fan mode and come with RGB lighting to provide underglow to most ATX cases.

There's no set pricing for the Razer Katana either. Razer expects to start shipping the newly announced components (Kunai and fan controller) in October for the U.S. with the rest of the world following later in 2021. The Razer Hanbo and Katana will launch later in 2021 and the beginning of 2022, respectively. Not only will you now be able to choose the best PC case from Razer, but also an AIO and PSU.

ELevate : Mettez à niveau CentOS 7 vers Alma Linux

21 octobre 2021 à 18:37
Bonjour à tous,

Dans cet article, on va parler de l'outil leapp mis à disposition dans le dépôt Elevate d'Alma Linux !

Cet outil va permettre de migrer d'élever (si je traduis littérallement) sa distribution CentOS 7 vers une variante dd'EL en version 8, avec au choix :
- Alma Linux 8
- CentOS Stream 8
- Oracle Linux 8
- Rocky Linux 8

On remarquera l’ouverture d'esprit de l’équipe d'Alma Linux envers ses concurrentes !

Evidemment, ayant déjà parlé de mon choix post CentOS, et celui-ci étant Alma Linux, nous allons voir la migration de CentOS 7 vers Alma Linux 8.

A noter que je ne vous recommanderai jamais, sur un serveur en production de mettre à niveau votre système vers une autre version majeure. Cependant, sachez que c'est possible avec l'outil présenté ici.
L'outil est à ce jour en développement. Son usage est réservé à des tests (clone d'une VM de prod) pour remonter les anomalies.

Pour ceux qui ne me connaissent pas encore, j'exécute toutes les commandes en root, donc pas de commandes préfixées avec "sudo" !

Tout d'abord, on s'assurera que notre CentOS est à jour :

Code BASH :
yum update -y


Si une mise à jour du noyau est proposée, on rebootera le système :

Code BASH :
reboot


Une fois le système à jour, installez le dépôt elevate :

Code BASH :
yum install -y http://repo.almalinux.org/elevate/elevate-release-latest-el7.noarch.rpm


Une fois fait, installez le paquet leapp-upgrade + le paquet leapp-data de la distribution voulue (remplacez almalinux par centos, oraclelinux ou rocky) :

Code BASH :
yum install -y leapp-upgrade leapp-data-almalinux


Une fois fait, on lance une vérification de l'upgrade via :

Code BASH :
leapp preupgrade


Voici des exemples de retours :

Code TEXT :
====> * scan_kernel_cmdline
        No documentation has been provided for the scan_kernel_cmdline actor.
====> * tcp_wrappers_config_read
        Parse tcp_wrappers configuration files /etc/hosts.{allow,deny}.
====> * scan_sap_hana
        Gathers information related to SAP HANA instances on the system.
 


On voit un certain nombre de paramètres testés.
Une fois le pré-upgrade terminé, on a un résumé :

Code TEXT :
============================================================
                     UPGRADE INHIBITED                      
============================================================
Upgrade has been inhibited due to the following problems:
    1. Inhibitor: Detected loaded kernel drivers which have been removed in RHEL 8. Upgrade cannot proceed.
    2. Inhibitor: Possible problems with remote login using root account
    3. Inhibitor: Missing required answers in the answer file
Consult the pre-upgrade report for details and possible remediation.
============================================================

Dans mon cas, l'upgrade ne peut se faire car :
1. Inhibitor: Detected loaded kernel drivers which have been removed in RHEL 8. Upgrade cannot proceed.
2. Inhibitor: Possible problems with remote login using root account
3. Inhibitor: Missing required answers in the answer file

On a le détail dans le fichier /var/log/leapp/leapp-report.txt des conflits possibles avec les résolutions.

Pour le problème 1, on retirera les modules pata_acpi mptspi mptscsih mptbase,
Code BASH :
rmmod pata_acpi
rmmod mptspi
rmmod mptscsih
rmmod mptbase


Pour le problème 2, on va fixer PermitRootLogin à yes dans sshd_config
Code BASH :
vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config


Pour le problème 3, on peut saisir la commande suivante :
Code BASH :
leapp answer --section remove_pam_pkcs11_module_check.confirm=True

ou placer confirm = True dans la section [remove_pam_pkcs11_module_check]

On peut relancer un preupgrade avant l'upgrade si on veut !
Si tout est bon, on lance le début de l'upgrade avec :

Code BASH :
leapp upgrade


Une fois les vérifications faites, on voit le rafraichissement des dépôts :
Code TEXT :
====> * target_userspace_creator
        Initializes a directory to be populated as a minimal environment to run binaries from the target system.
AlmaLinux 8.4 - HighAvailability                1.8 MB/s | 603 kB     00:00    
AlmaLinux 8.4 - Extras                           54 kB/s |  10 kB     00:00    
AlmaLinux 8.4 - AppStream                        19 MB/s | 9.5 MB     00:00   


Puis le début du téléchargement des RPM. D'autres vérifications sont faites (transactions de tests) durant le processus.

On remarquera qu'une image initramfs spéciale pour l'upgrade est créée :

Code TEXT :
==> Processing phase `InterimPreparation`
====> * upgrade_initramfs_generator
        Creates the upgrade initramfs
====> * efi_interim_fix
        Adjust EFI boot entry for first reboot
====> * add_upgrade_boot_entry
        Add new boot entry for Leapp provided initramfs.
A reboot is required to continue. Please reboot your system.
 


En effet, le réel upgrade se fait au reboot (comme sur fedora avec dnf system-upgrade).

Les informations sont toutes en verte, avec les chemins vers les fichiers de logs :

Code TEXT :
 
Debug output written to /var/log/leapp/leapp-upgrade.log
============================================================
                           REPORT

============================================================

Avant de reboot, on contrôle qu'on est bien encore sur CentOS 7 :

Code BASH :
cat /etc/os-release


Code TEXT :
NAME="CentOS Linux"
VERSION="7 (Core)"
ID="centos"
ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"
VERSION_ID="7"
PRETTY_NAME="CentOS Linux 7 (Core)"
ANSI_COLOR="0;31"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:centos:centos:7"
HOME_URL="https://www.centos.org/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.centos.org/"
CENTOS_MANTISBT_PROJECT="CentOS-7"
CENTOS_MANTISBT_PROJECT_VERSION="7"
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT="centos"
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT_VERSION="7"



On reboot le système :

Code BASH :
reboot


On démarre automatiquement sur l'entrée précédemment générée dans le GRUB :

elevate-alma1



Et l'upgrade commence :

elevate-alma2



Il peut arriver, que le système ne reboot pas (ça m'est arrivé en rédigeant cet article avec une VM VMware équipée d'UEFI).
J'ai du ajouter manuellement l'entrée Alma Linux qui dispose d'un fichier efi dans le dossier almalinux cette fois-ci) !
Vous trouverez le report du bug ici : https://bugs.almalinux.org/view.php?id=134

Une fois le système rebooté, on contrôle qu'on est bien sous Alma Linux 8 :

Code BASH :
cat /etc/os-release


Code TEXT :
NAME="AlmaLinux"
VERSION="8.4 (Electric Cheetah)"
ID="almalinux"
ID_LIKE="rhel centos fedora"
VERSION_ID="8.4"
PLATFORM_ID="platform:el8"
PRETTY_NAME="AlmaLinux 8.4 (Electric Cheetah)"
ANSI_COLOR="0;34"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:almalinux:almalinux:8.4:GA"
HOME_URL="https://almalinux.org/"
DOCUMENTATION_URL="https://wiki.almalinux.org/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.almalinux.org/"
ALMALINUX_MANTISBT_PROJECT="AlmaLinux-8"
ALMALINUX_MANTISBT_PROJECT_VERSION="8.4"
 


Evidemment, assurez vous que vos applications fonctionnent toujours, et adaptez les fichiers de configuration de vos services si besoin (Apache, MariaDB, PHP qui passe à php-fpm, etc.)
