On Ubuntu

Posted 01-18-2016 at 11:23 PM by wagscat123

I started using Ubuntu when it gained popularity before Unity, MIR, and even the Ubuntu Software Center. There was just Synaptic and the apt stuff, and GNOME 2.
It was an updated version of Debian with Wubi, Ubiquity, and polish that made things "just work". This made it catch on fire, and become a good place for newbs and casual users. And from Debian it inherited a huge amount of compatibility, stability, and familiarity with experienced users.
Ubuntu has had to figure...

How to configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 15.10

Posted 01-18-2016 at 10:50 AM by sridhar11

NFS was developed at a time when we weren't able to share our drives like we are able to today -- in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again,this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this.

In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.Thin clients have no hard drives and thus need a "virtual" hard-disk....

OpenBSD on AWS - Yes! It's true!

Posted 01-16-2016 at 06:11 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 03-16-2016 at 07:43 PM by rocket357 (Update)

Update: OpenBSD AMIs are available in the Ireland region as of this update. Please use those instead of the below instructions!

OpenBSD-5.9-beta introduced an important piece of the puzzle for running OpenBSD on AWS. It introduced Xen Guest drivers, namely the network drivers.

This is seriously cool. I have a few OpenBSD VPSs around the world doing various things in KVM, but I've always wanted to "bring them home" to AWS.

Updated 01-12-2016 at 04:06 PM by exton (More info)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.4.0-0-exton, equivalent to Kernel.orgs latest stable kernel 4.4.0 released 160110.

Whats new in kernel 4.4?

Install kernel 4.4.0-0-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.2) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9).

User style/CSS to get rid of Google's "come here often" pop-up

Posted 01-12-2016 at 01:00 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Seems to work for me on firefox/iceweasel:

Code:
@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("google.com")
 .gb_ga, .gb_g { display: none !important; }
British users probably need to change the domain to "google.co.uk" and likewise for some other countries that aren't subdomains of google.com;]
