eeeXubuntu [EeeUser Eee PC Wiki]

by 1 other
eeeXubuntu is a custom version of the Xubuntu 7.10 Live CD with fully-integrated hardware support, including native wireless drivers, functioning Ethernet support, tweaks for low-resolution desktop environments, and other miscellaneous fixes. Wherever possible, these changes are incorporated using custom .deb packages rather than spewing assorted files all over post-install. (Screenshot) The goal of this project is to maintain a easy-to-install Xubuntu Live CD image for the eeePC, allowing for a reliable base Xubuntu install. One strong advantage of development for the eeePC is a common hardware platform shared by all users. (Those who are missing a miniPCI slot may, of course, disagree.)

Tango icon theme generator

The third major incarnation of the Tango Generator is a python application allowing the user to collate icons from all over the internet, and merge them into a single personalised icon theme. A single theme will typically contain more than 10,000 icons. Thanks to the Tango Icon Theme Guidlines, icons from over 20 themes can be mixed at will while remaining assured of a consistent overall appearance. The Generator is capable of themeing the Gnome and XFCE desktop environments, aswell as a wide range of common GTK applications - including Azureus, Gftp and Inkscape.

Convertir système debian en Raid1

Our intention is not to build a fail-safe system nor a HA-Linux. We are just using RAID-1 mirrored disks to make sure that the system can be restored easily if 1 disk crashes. The following has been tested only twice (hey, we've got other things to do). It did work for us, it might work for you. It might also make your rats go berserk or just blow your mind.

How to convert your debian partition to a software raid 1 on the fly

The system is equipped with 2 similar hard disks (they do not have to be the same but it helps if they are at least similar). The first disk is attached to the primary IDE as master, it will be referenced as /dev/hda. The second disk is attached to the secondary IDE also as master, it will be referenced as /dev/hdc.

How to Install Openvpn

The purpose of this document is to describe how to install OpenVPN server on an Ubuntu Linux system and have it utilize an Ethernet bridge to access your local network. Ethernet bridges essentially allow the operating system to treat multiple network interfaces as one combined port. When used with OpenVPN a bridge will allow you to easily connect external users to your internal network and have them receive all traffic as though they were locally connected. The alternative is to use OpenVPN with a route but that will not allow some forms of traffic through (such as multicast), multicast traffic is important to me as many games require multicast data.

Xen 3 for Debian

by 3 others
Since several years, I build my own network at home, running 2 to 7 machines at the same time (gateway, firewall, workstation, devstation, servers...). In my flat, it produce a lot of noise, take too many space and consume electricty. I decided to stop that, and to run my all network into a single machine, using virtual machine. The technology that convinced me is Xen.

Create DomU

Creating a Virtual Server - domU There are 3 options of what to run DomU on: 1. File Based Image 2. LVM Based 3. Physical Partition 1. A file based image is the quickest to setup, however has poor/terrible IO performance. The virtual server is limited to the initial size of the image created also. The file based Image can however be easily mounted in a rescue system, and easily backed-up. 2. LVM for domU is the industry standard. After the initial setup of LVM, as described here, it is a dream to manage. LVM partitions can be resized afterwards!!! Due to this "resizing" capability and flexibility, its use for Xen Virtual Servers is ideal. They also have much better IO performance than file-based. I dont know about mounting these partitions however in a rescue system. Something to try out... -). 3. Physical Partitions have the best IO, but are difficult to alter and inflexible.

How to use FTP filesystem on Ubuntu using CurlFtpFS

Some web hosting company do not offer shell access (SSH or Telnet) to your shared hosting account for security reasons, making it a bit harder for you to do regular file maintenance for your web account. Although the use of regular FTP client is adequate for most cases, some people still prefer to manipulate files directly using standard Unix tools (probably because of old habits). Fortunately, there’s CurlFtpFS which allow you to mount remote ftp account as a standard filesystem on your Linux operating system.

Test du Linutop, un mini pc pour linux : 9,3 x 2,7 x 15cm

De nos jours, le grand public est de plus en plus friand d'ordinateurs surpuissants. Toute famille désirant s'informatiser se tournera dans la majorité des cas vers le PC le plus puissant du moment..au supermarché, sans tenir compte de la réelle utilisation qu'ils vont en faire. On se retrouve donc avec des personnes ayant un Core2Duo pour faire de la bureautique ou du web, exploitant ainsi 10% ... 15% (?) de la machine. C'est dans ce contexte que s'inscrit le Linutop. C'est un ordinateur de bureau de taille très réduite (9,3 x 2,7 x 15cm, un peu plus petit qu'un boîtier pour disque dur externe) destiné avant tout à la bureautique et au surf sur Internet.
