A Beginner's Guide To LVM

A Beginner's Guide To LVM

This guide shows how to work with LVM (Logical Volume Management) on Linux. It also describes how to use LVM together with RAID1 in an extra chapter. As LVM is a rather abstract topic, this article comes with a Debian Etch VMware image that you can download and start, and on that Debian Etch system you can run all the commands I execute here and compare your results with mine. Through this practical approach you should get used to LVM very fast.

screen: Keep Your Processes Running Despite A Dropped Connection

screen: Keep Your Processes Running Despite A Dropped Connection

I guess you all know this: you are connected to your server with SSH and in the middle of compiling some software (e.g. a new kernel) or doing some other task which takes lots of time, and suddenly your connection drops for some reason, and you lose your labour. This can be very annoying, but fortunately there is a small utility called screen which lets you reattach to a previous session so that you can finish your task. This short tutorial shows how to use screen for just this purpose.

IHLFS: Full Control Over What You're Installing

IHLFS: Check What You're Installing (And More)

Here I describe the tool IHLFS which enables you to have full control over the install process. It works with installation from source, but also with a installation command like RPM. The user can view all the changes before a final install is performed. The user has the choice anytime to move the changes to the real system or not. It's based on the unionfs filesystem, combined with well chosen mounts and chroot.

Using and Customizing Templates in OpenOffice.org

Using and Customizing Templates in OpenOffice.org

I believe in using tools. And if the tools are easy to use and free, so much the better. That's why I'm a big proponent of using templates. Templates are one of the best ways to save time, effort, and be sure that your documents are consistent when they need to be.

[Debian-Sarge] Tunneling NFS over SSH

[Debian-Sarge] Tunneling NFS over SSH

The goal of this howto is building a NFS server that works on a SSH tunnel. This way all traffic between your hosts and the file server is encrypted and thus more secure. Normally you should enter a password every time you try to establish a SSH connection but since we could be mounting at bootup we will use ssh-keygen to create a keypair so we can login without entering a password. We will, however, limit that login session to executing just one command.
