Basic Things to Know When Switching to a Linux Desktop

Posted 08-01-2006 at 03:57 AM by raldz

Recent releases of Linux Distributions totally amazes me. What was once an OS that is easy to use and configure, has gotten even better. For me, one of the easiest distribution that I had my hands on is MEPIS (3.4-3, with upcoming 6.0 release on June/July 2006). Of course there are other Linux distributions that are great in their own sense. Ubuntu, Kubuntu, SUSE, and Kanotix are among my favorites.

setting up nfs

Posted 07-31-2006 at 11:59 AM by baikonur

% mount 192.168.1.200:/home/nfstest /mnt/nfstest
NFS Portmap: RPC: Program not registered

@ http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/ar01s03.html I learned that rpc.mountd handles the initial mount requests.

Hi all,

I want to know that what is the difference between /proc files and /dev files, since both are used for interfacing between user space and kernel space for accessing the hardware.

Required Reading: Detect and Clean a hacked server (like, not)

Posted 07-26-2006 at 04:47 PM by unSpawn

I wonder what would happen (think newbie) if I would trust information from one source? Take for instance Detect and Clean a hacked server T0rnkit Tutorial which says I can completely recover a compromised and rootkitted box *just by deleting and installing some tools*. Of course *you* know that's completely wrong (and the comments say that as well) because you've read more docs (or had the experience of having to mop up after a breach). But how about someone who doesn't see the comments? Someone...
