Logrotate - Not Just for the System

Posted 05-13-2014 at 02:26 PM by rtmistler
Tags logrotate

I've seen a few threads about logrotate. Two thread types I've noticed are:
  1. Persons not understanding logrotate and how to use it
  2. Persons not happy with logrotate and it's normal means of operation - mainly because they'd like to use it for something other than the system log files.
My intentions here are to cover the second case however I will start describing a bit about logrotate and how to use it. So those who are new to logrotate and seeking some guidance, the general overview section...

LFA 14.04 (Linux For All) build 140511

Posted 05-11-2014 at 03:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 14.04 – codenamed Trusty Tahr, released April 17, 2014. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE,Razor-qt and XBMC (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH.

Possible bug with Debian's Konqueror/Dolphin/KDE and zip extraction, and how to fix

I noticed that there was no longer the "extract" context submenu for zip files after one of the last updates. Then I went to check the ".desktop" files on /usr/share/kde4, and noticed that they had an editing mistake in the mimetype line:

MimeType= ... application/x-lzma-compressed-tar;application/zipapplication/x-deb; ...
I guess it was probably something related with deb packages, which must have edited this line and "forgot" to add the...

DebEX Barebone – build 140509 – 64 bit with Xcfe4, Pacapt and kernel 3.14.1-amd64

Posted 05-09-2014 at 01:13 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a based on Debian Jessie (upcoming Debian 8). There are also certain elements of Debian Sid (unstable). Xfce 4.10.1 is used as Desktop environment. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly. (…and according to my experience it is much faster than LXDE in Debian). DebEX Barebone uses the original Debian kernel 3.14.1-amd64 (equivalent to’s latest stable kernel 3.14.2). The system language is English.
