How To Install A Public Git Repository On A Debian Server

How To Install A Public Git Repository On A Debian Server

Git is a free distributed revision control, was initially created by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development. It is primarily developed on Linux, but can be used on other Unix operating systems including BSD, Solaris and Darwin. Git is extremely fast on POSIX-based systems such as Linux. It differs from svn and creates a private repository on a remote server too.

Installing VirtualBox 2 On A Debian Lenny Desktop

Installing VirtualBox 2 On A Debian Lenny Desktop

This tutorial shows how you can install Sun xVM VirtualBox 2 on a Debian Lenny desktop. VirtualBox is available as a package from the official Debian Lenny repository, but it's very old (version 1.6.6), therefore I explain how to install the current version (2.1.4 at the time of this writing). With VirtualBox you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux and Windows under a host operating system. There are two ways of installing VirtualBox: from precompiled binaries that are available for some distributions and come under the PUEL license, and from the sources that are released under the GPL. This article will show how to set up VirtualBox 2 (2.1.4 at the time of this writing) from the precompiled binaries.

A Short Introduction To Apt-Pinning

A Short Introduction To Apt-Pinning

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Debian Lenny (Initiator And Target)

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Debian Lenny (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Debian Lenny. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.
