Rootkit Hunter 1.3.8 release imminent...

Posted 10-31-2010 at 11:40 AM by unSpawn

It time again for another release. But before we can I need you to test it in the coming two weeks. Please spare us a few minutes if you care. After testing please reply so we get an idea of how many people tested this release.

Here is a short checklist:
1) Does RKH install correctly?
2) Does 'rkhunter -C' show rkhunter.conf is OK? (Re-run after making changes.)
3) Does '--update' work?
4) Does '--versioncheck' work?
5) Does '--propupd' pick up...

chroot PHP for use with nginx

Posted 10-31-2010 at 11:40 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I never had to deal with chrooted environment before, and there isn't lots of info out there on the net. Best result I've found so far is http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-...oted-jail.html
Actually, it covers almost entire topic, but I'm going to explain how to bind it with nginx in gentoo linux environment.
Say, you have a site example.org with some app you don't really trust in /app dir. Your own-written site scripts are executed in non-chrooted PHP environment...

Remove unwanted locales on Ubuntu / Debian

Sometimes you feel bothered by too many locales (pre)installed on your Debian system. If I run a server I typically want basic stuff on it, so for locales "en_US-UTF8" is enough.

Which locales are installed on my machine?
You can check which locales are generated and configured on your system using the locale command:
  • locale ... list the current locale configuration
  • locale -a ... lists all all locales that were generated on your system
  • locale -a -v ... list

Installing Ubuntu 10.10 on a Windows 7 System (Dual booting) with Radeon X300/X550/X1050 SERIES Grap

Posted 10-29-2010 at 02:16 PM by allu john sudhakar

Ubuntu Linux, just like most Linux distributions, will happily co-exist on a hard disk with just about any version of Windows. This is a concept known as dual-booting. Essentially, when you power up your PC you will be presented with a menu which provides the option to boot either Ubuntu Linux or Windows. Obviously you can only run one operating system at a time, but it is worth noting that the files on the Windows partition of your disk drive will be available to you from Ubuntu Linux regardless...
