rsnapshot - Local/Remote Filesystem backups utility in openSUSE

Posted 10-06-2008 at 04:02 PM by rbkumaran

rsnapshot is a filesystem backup utility based on rsync. Using rsnapshot, it is possible to take snapshots of your filesystems at different points in time. Using hard links, rsnapshot creates the illusion of multiple full backups, while only taking up the space of one full backup plus differences. When coupled with ssh, it is possible to take snapshots of remote filesystems as well.

How to allow ordinary (not root) users to mount/unmount everything.

Posted 10-06-2008 at 01:50 PM by dr_agon

applies to: linux, debian based (Mepis), mount, sudo

While testing many things often I have to mount/unmount resources, and I became tired of using 'su' and supplying password.

The easy but not very secure solution is to allow some (or all) users to execute mount/unmount as root without being prompted for password by adding them to /etc/sudoers file like this:
Code:
%users  ALL=NOPASSWD: /bin/mount, /bin/umount
'users' is a group name.
Now I can use...

Gnome not as unconfigurable as rumoured

Posted 10-06-2008 at 07:21 AM by trevorparsons

I have KDE on my desktop machine at home, but I run Ubuntu (Gnome) on my eeepc. The latter choice is partly because Ubuntu/Gnome looks pretty good on the eee's small screen and is well supported by Adam McDaniel's eeepc optimised kernel and hacks, and partly because it's useful for when someone calls up with a question about an Ubuntu system I've installed for them.

Gnome took the decision to simplify its interface some time back, creating an impression that it's much less configurable...
