mount scripts

Posted 08-27-2012 at 03:39 PM by ted_chou12

These are scripts that searches for local drives and network shares (cifs). I am putting this up for whoever looking for a ready made script also for my future references:
Code:
#mounts start with f
tbmounted=(f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z)

for each in "/dev/sd"* ; do
	mname=${each##*/}
	
	for alphabet in ${tbmounted[@]} ; do
		if [ "$mname" == "sd$alphabet" ] ; then
				mounts=$(mount | grep

Ubuntu Made Easy review Part 1.

Posted 08-27-2012 at 08:48 AM by rich_c

Well, my copy of Ubuntu Made Easy which No Starch Press kindly sent me to review arrived 2 or 3 weeks ago. The book itself is remarkably well put together making it a pleasure to hold and read as well as easy to refer to while working on the 'projects'. No Starch were also kind enough to provide me with a PDF copy which I have shared with a select few people with less (Or different.) Linux experience than myself. So, hopefully future parts of this ongoing review will provide their perspectives...

Crash.

Posted 08-26-2012 at 04:34 PM by peonuser

I would preferred to have it broke rather than the palm. Oh well.

Konqueror- the lovely KDE MFS

Posted 08-25-2012 at 05:18 PM by leosubhadeep

Konqueror

KDE has been a much-beloved option for the Linux users. It looks neat, and the latest versions (I am using 4.9.0 in Ubuntu and 4.8.5 in Fedora lately) has showed a faster, cleaner and good-looking desktop environment. Konqueror, in my point of view, is one of the best parts of KDE.
It's a well-known fact that users switching from Windows to Linux find KDE more convenient than other desktops (here I'm excluding the lightweight desktops such as xfce). Right after getting...

Back story
This is going to be a short blog post. Mostly with commands. Basically I run a media server for online courses/lectures called Echo360 ESS. At some point the LVM volume which holds the lecture captures nearly filled up. I was getting Icinga alerts on it and by looking at the rate of data generation in munin showed me I had better hop to it. So that's what this post is about.

The fun stuff

Add disk to VM
