Ventrilo Voice Communication Server In A Chrooted Environment On Ubuntu Feisty AMD64

Ventrilo Voice Communication Server In A Chrooted Environment On Ubuntu Feisty AMD64

This tutorial explains how to set up Ventrilo, a popular voice communication server, in a chrooted environment, and to run as a non-privileged user.  The main reason for doing this is security. Ventrilo is distributed only in binary format, which some people distrust. A chrooted environment means the program only has access to its home directory, not the entire system. Running it like this means that if there is a bug or exploit in Ventrilo, it is not likely to compromise the rest of the system.

Installing Ubuntu From A Windows System With Wubi

Installing Ubuntu From A Windows System With Wubi

Wubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows that lets you install and uninstall Ubuntu from a Windows desktop. Wubi adds an entry to the Windows boot menu which allows you to run Linux. Ubuntu is installed within a file in the Windows file system (a loopmounted partition), this file is seen by Ubuntu as a real hard disk. That way the hard drive does not have to be repartitioned before the Ubuntu installation. The resulting Ubuntu installation is a "real" Linux system, not just a virtual machine.

Video Surveillance With ZoneMinder On Ubuntu

Video Surveillance With ZoneMinder On Ubuntu

ZoneMinder is the top Linux video camera security and surveillance solution. In this document I will cover how to get ZoneMinder up and running on Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS or Dapper Drake with the recent updates included. The surveillance system I am covering here utilizes 4 Dome CCTV cameras hooked up to a single Kodicom kmc-8800 capture card, in addition I also used infrared LEDs so my cameras could see in the dark (honestly I'm abit scared to look). ZoneMinder also does a good job with IP Cameras, unfortunatly they are considerably expensive in my part of the world, hence 4 cameras would blow my budget.
