2/19    I program a lot by sshing to a Linux cluster.  So I'm used to using
        Xemacs to code.  This works fine from a Linux or Windows workstation,
        but sometimes I have to use a Mac.  On Mac, the meta is usually
        bound to option, but that often doesn't work over ssh for some reason.
        This makes using emacs a real pain.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?
        (Other than "use vi")

8/26    Amazon medium instances (3.75GB RAM): 0.160/hour = $1382/year
        Generic standard Linux VPS (4GB RAM): $480/year
        Amazon costs more (but does offer superior scaling options).
        \_ Amazon is $670 if you buy a year's usage up front (heavy util).
           Why is heavy util less expensive than light util?

1/4     I want to test how my servers behave during a disk failure and
        a RAID reconstruction so I want to simulate a hardware failure.
        How can I do this in Linux without having to physically pull
        a drive? These disks are behind a RAID card and run Linux. -ausman
        \_ According to the Linux RAID wiki, you might be able to use mdadm
           to do this with something like the following:

7/21    Can I just use ifconfig to expand my netmask on a FreeBSD box?
        Are there any gotchas here? Linux forces me to restart my network
        to expand my netmask.
        \_ yes... and no, you don't have to restart your network on linux either
           \_ Rebooting is the Ubootntoo way!
              \_ Oooboot'n'tootin!

7/22    Playing with dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/<disk> on linux and bsd:
        2 questions, on linux when <disk>==hda it always gives me this off
        by one report i.e. Records out == records in-1 and says there is an
        error. Has anyone else seen this?  Second, when trying to repeat this
        on bsd, <disk>==rwd0 now, to my surprise, using the install disk and
        selecting (S)hell, when I try to dd a 40 gig disk it says "409 records

5/26    anyone use lxde?  supposedly it is less stupid than xfce and
        less bloated than gnome.  thoughts?
        \_ lol, does anyone still use desktop linux?  Get with the times
           buy a mac.  Now.  DO IT.  Go NOW.
           \_ but we prefer herring to Kool-Aid

5/5     Does anyone know how to do custom install of Ubuntu 10.04? I can't
        even boot it up to give me the menu to custom install and it
        keeps installing a bunch of crap I don't need. It's getting
        just as slow and bloated as Winblows install. Dear lord,
        I miss the old Ubuntu.

4/22    In Linux is there an easy way to rename the scripts in /etc/rc?.d ?
        For example I want to set all the /etc/rc?.d/S91apache to S100apache
        so that it'll run the ramdisk BEFORE going to apache.
        \_ Sure, just move them.
           \_ I mean is there a script that will rename all of them
              for me? Like: setrc apache2 0 0 1 1 1 1

Donate an extra copy of a good computer book to help Linux and free software education in Iraq. After dropping off your books, stay for pizza and sample the educational and recreational facilities of the Freedom Technology Center. We have a Linux-based training lab as well as video games and pinball. Linux Center Planned for Baghdad The LUG of Iraq is establishing a Linux Center in Baghdad to conduct training in all levels of Linux usage, administration and development. Today in Baghdad, up-to-date PC hardware and all kinds of software are readily available, but computer books are hard to get. The LUG needs all computer books, not just the Linux-specific ones. No Crypto, Please Most current OS distributions contain some cryptographic software, so we will be unable to send them. We will check, but if your book includes a distribution CD, please remove it before donating. Hardware is readily available in Baghdad, and since it does not qualify for book rate postage its better for the LUG of Iraq to buy hardware there. About the Freedom Technology Center The Freedom Technology Center is a new non-profit IT training facility located in downtown Mountain View, California. Upcoming classes include an enterprise Samba class to be taught by Samba developer John H. Terpstra and a series of Linux administration classes to be taught by noted author and consultant Jim Dennis. Past Events OpenRISC demo: Monday, December 15, 2003, 7pm All Freedom Technology Center special events are free of charge and open to the public. Location and Directions Please see the Freedom Technology Center contact page .
