Logs are an important part of maintaining and managing a Linux system. This is a brief tutorial for accessing and reading a Linux log. First, you need to open a terminal window, you will first see a prompt similar to this on most systems.

Code:
nbiser@linux-vqbm:~>
You then need to type this:
Code:
ls /
This will bring up the contents of the root partition. You can see all of the various directories in the root partition such as these:

Run your Slackware 64bit system even better with the latest kernel!

Posted 04-15-2013 at 01:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.0 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk , SlackEX, Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel 3.2.29 huge. “My” kernel 3.8.7-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.8.7 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20130412.

Yet another new version of exGENT (Gentoo) with LXDE

Posted 04-15-2013 at 01:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version (130415) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130318. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added even more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130415.

Paging? Swapping? Which is it?

Posted 04-15-2013 at 11:52 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

It's a bit big to be called a "one-liner", but this "script" will give you a short overview of paging levels vs. swapping levels on your machine.

Set T=<seconds> to whatever timeframe you want to test for.

Code:
T=5; ( vmstat -s; sleep $T; vmstat -s ) | awk -v T="$T" -F'[(/)]' '/pages paged in/{ pgpio=pgpin; pgpin=$1 } /pages paged out/{ pgpoo=pgpon; pgpon=$1 } /pages swapped in/{ pgsio=pgsin; pgsin=$1 } /pages swapped out/{ pgsoo=pgson;
