user mounted filesystems

Posted 06-14-2012 at 11:51 PM by neonsignal

Rather than mount a filesystem as root (whether from the command line or through /etc/fstab), non-privileged users can make use of the fuse (filesystem in userspace) system. This requires the installation of the fuse-utils package, and the user has to be added to the fuse group.

There are a number of useful systems implemented on top of fuse.

For example, an ISO system might be required to run a particular application, and just mounted temporarily by the user executing...

Trying to Chain of Fools Fedora

Posted 06-14-2012 at 06:49 PM by wagscat123

I tried to perform a chain of fools style experiment (upgrading through every version of Fedora from 1 to 17) of Fedora in VirtualBox. It went great, chugging along right up through Fedora 1-8. Once I got to Fedora 9, the menu functions and keyboard input began to get weird, and by Fedora 10 the cursor froze upon X startup. I have ran into this issue when Chain of Foolin' around before in both SUSE and Fedora and couldn't get a solution (even when asking here). I might do a command prompt Chain...

Newegg Boycott Back On

Posted 06-14-2012 at 03:53 PM by Skaperen

It seems Newegg management is playing games with people. It appears they really do intend to refuse returns by future customers when another OS is installed by that customer.

Ben Nanonote

Posted 06-14-2012 at 10:46 AM by drask

For fun I bought a Ben Nanonote the other day and am slowly starting to play with it as time permits. I'm listing the things I have discovered about it so far.

I purchased a small usb network dongle that was listed as linux and Windows 7 compatible and a mini-b to type a usb converter to try and get wireless networking working with this, but it looks like that's going to be more of a project than I anticipated. The USB port is a client only port (an inny, not an outy) so it can be...

shutdown instead of reboot from ctrl-alt-del

Posted 06-14-2012 at 04:30 AM by neonsignal

Typically the ctrl-alt-del in Debian will cause the system to reboot (or the GUI may bring up a dialog).

If the preference is to have this shut down the system instead, the relevant line in /etc/inittab is changed from:
Code:
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now
to:
Code:
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -h now
