Linux in a Nutshell review

Posted 12-02-2009 at 09:46 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

Users of free Unixes won't agree with the title of Linux in a Nutshell. The fact is much of the book is actually focused on GNU or BSD utilities and not specifically Linux. The book begins with just over 100 pages of general user commands. Next you get info on bash and csh/tcsh, on emacs and vi/ex, on sed and gawk, and on gcc, gdb, and the like. A perl quick reference is followed by an overview of system administration commands and a final chapter on ways of booting Linux. Here's the odd part, it's...

git bisect

Posted 12-02-2009 at 01:37 AM by vkmgeek
Tags bisect, git

All,

We were chasing one hard-to-solve bug few days back. There was no clue from HW or SW perspective. And yet we had to chase a bug. A typical Indian Software Developer's condition

However, I have been hearing about git-bisect since a long time on kernel community. And I wanted to practice that. So, this was the opportunity. I decided to track this down using git bisect. It's a nice way which probably CVS user lacks.

git bisect basically gives you...

RDMA(Remote Direct Memory Access) connection statistics

Posted 12-02-2009 at 01:36 AM by vkmgeek

RDMA(Remote Direct Memory Access) connection statistics

Lead:
Any Desktop or Server Linux operating system provides a rich set of
network connection troubleshooting tools. However, those tools are not
useful for iWARP [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IWARP] devices. There
is not any kernel interface which provides information about iWARP
connections. And the fact that iWARP devices supports both native TCP
stack and iWARP (Also known as RDMA...

Debootstrap Yourself, or "What is a good distro for my old computer?" (2)

Posted 12-01-2009 at 10:28 PM by ofaring (Debian, This That and the Other)
Updated 12-04-2009 at 10:53 AM by ofaring (Just a couple of minor changes.)

And why am I doing this instead of a normal install? Well, that involves a rain storm, an experiment, and an eBay purchase. The end result was not being able to boot from the CD-ROM. Since it's too old to boot from USB, and flashy new Linux kernels have forsaken floppy installs, my options narrowed considerably. During the course of my research I stumbled across "debootstrap", and the rest is written below.

S*it for opensource

Posted 11-29-2009 at 12:44 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Updated 11-29-2009 at 01:20 PM by Web31337 (fix mistake)

True story from IRC about how to make sh*t from opensource. It is just my way of thinking.
Opensource should be a god's light. You may judge me for saying or doing this in a rough way... but i stand my ground for opensource. and this is just my way of doing things. i will never use a help of dark lords of proprietary software.
