Up

Down

This tutorial describes how you can set up an development environment for building Android apps on an Ubuntu 11.04 desktop using Eclipse, the Android SDK, and PhoneGap. I will describe how to build Android apps from the command line with PhoneGap and from the GUI with Eclipse and PhoneGap and how to test them in an Android emulator and on a real Android device. PhoneGap allows you to develop your Android applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (e.g. with JavaScript libraries such as jQuery/jQTouch), and it will turn these web apps into native Android apps (in fact, PhoneGap supports multiple platforms such as Android, iPhone, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian, so you can use the same sources to create apps for multiple platforms). read more...

Tutorial: Install Ubuntu 11.04 on encrypted LVM

Up
vote
Down

Ubuntu is one of many Linux distributions with support for LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager. LVM is a disk partitioning scheme that brings a level of flexibility to disk management that is not possible with the traditional method. With LVM, you can, if necessary, increase the size of a partition online, that is, while the system is running, without unmounting the partition. You can also add another disk to the system if the old one becomes full. There are many more benefits that LVM offers, but the those two are more than enough reasons to consider using it.

This tutorial presents a step by step guide on how to install Ubuntu 11.04, the latest stable release, on an encrypted LVM file system. Why is it necessary to encrypt the disk? For the reasons detailed here, disk encryption protects your data from unauthorized physical access. read more...

Ubuntu 11.04: Custom Kernel

Up
vote
Down

Without knowing much about the support of Reiser4 filesystem in the kernel of Ubuntu 11.04, I stupidly went ahead and formatted a 2TB external hard drive with said filesystem from my Arch-based laptop. Then I happily put tons of data on it, since my laptop's hard drive had already failed several times. Imagine what: Very soon after, the same hard drive failed again.

I was really excited I had a backup of my data on an external hard drive and that time around I didn't lose a bit (yes, this has happened to me before). So the day came and I wanted to watch the fourth episode of Rozen Maiden (an epic Anime). But after plugging the drive into my Ubuntu box I discovered that it just wouldn't mount. I tried hard with Nautilus, pmount etc. but to no avail. At some point I looked at /proc/filesystems. What I saw in there didn't make me happy at all: Reiser4 was absent! There was also no such module in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/fs, so by that time I thought I was dead in the water. A moment later -it really seemed like an eternity- I managed to pull myself together and immediately looked up for Reiser4 support in the Linux kernel. Soon I discovered that the mainline kernel needs a patch in order to support Reiser4, so do the majority of the Linux distributions out there. read more...
