Expanding A Root-FS

Expanding A Root-FS

There might be the situation, that your root filesystem runs out of space, so it has to be expanded. With filesystems other than the root filesystem this could easily be done for instance with gparted. With the root filesystem this is not possible, as gparted could only expand filesystems that are not mounted, which is impossible with the root filesystem. The only way to enlarge the root filesystem is to boot from a kind of rescuesystem, Live-CD or the like, and then to expand the root filesystem. The following tutorial describes, how this is achieved by using Systemrescue-CD.

Easier Reinstalls

Easier Reinstalls

I typically reinstall my computer operating system every six months. The reasons for this are that it cleans out the system and reinstalls require me to be in front of the computer for a total of about ten minutes so it's painless. Notice I said "in front of the computer", the system does all of the work for me with some specially crafted bash scripts.

Secure Your Wordpress Blog Administration With Two-Factor Authentication

Wordpress is a very popular blogging service. It was recently hit by a disturbing vulnerability that allowed attackers to reset the Administrator's password.

Finding Files On The Command Line

Finding Files On The Command Line

One of the things I like about Linux is the command line. I have used nautilus, gnome-commander, konqueror, kommander, dolphin and thunar to manage files in Linux and these file managers are great for what they do. But there are times when one simply wants to find a file when working on the command line without having to open a GUI application.
