Up

Down

Netstat is a command line utility that can be used to list out all the network (socket) connections on a system. It lists out all the tcp, udp socket connections and the unix socket connections. Apart from connected sockets it can also list listening sockets that are waiting for incoming connections. So by verifying an open port 80 you can confirm if a web server is running on the system or not. This makes it a very useful tool for network and system administrators. So in this tutorial we shall be checking out few examples of how to use netstat to find information about network connections and open ports on a system. read more...

Parsix 5.0 review

Up
vote
Down

Simple because I did not see any point in it. The distribution wasn’t bringing anything new to the table, and the custom-coded installer was several steps removed (in the wrong direction) from that of its parent distribution. But that was back in 2011, which for a distribution with a 6-month release cycle, is a long time. read more...

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial explains how to install Debian Wheezy (testing) with the help of debootstrap from a Grml Live Linux system (like it is used as a rescue system at Webtropia). This should work - with minor changes - for other Debian and Ubuntu versions as well. By following this guide, it is possible to configure the system to your needs (OS version, partitioning, RAID, LVM, etc.) instead of depending on the few pre-configured images that your server provider offers. read more...

webOS: The latest Linux distribution

Up
vote
Down

The source or cause of the joy is none other than the announcement from HP that webOS will be, in their own words, a “pure open source project.” Awesome! Did I see this coming? Yes, sir! Did I influence HP’s decision? Perhaps.

Ok, alright, that last one is a stretch, but back on August 19 2011, after HP had announced that it “will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones,” I suggested in a blog post (see what HP should do with webOS), that “to not let webOS be a failed distribution, here’s what I think HP should do with webOS – make it a free, Linux distribution, such that the relationship between it (HP) and webOS would be akin to that between Red Hat and Fedora, or Canonical and Ubuntu.” read more...

High-resolution text console with uvesafb in Debian/Ubuntu

Up
vote
Down

While you may rarely use the console on your server, it's nice to have a high-resolution display just to see that many more columns and rows. Linux's vesa module (via the vga= parameter) has been around for a while and made this possible, provided you kept up with what VGA mode number to use and don't mind the spotty hardware compatibility.

While KMS is the way to do this in the future, it doesn't help us with the drivers and hardware we have now. A new kernel module, uvesafb, mainlined in 2.6.24, is another, new option. In addition to specifying modes in a more user-friendly way (i.e. 1280x1024-32 for 32-bit color, with a 1280x1024 resolution), hardware compatibility is better in particular, you can now get a high-resolution text console with NVIDIA display adapters.

In the following, I describe how to use uvesafb on Debian and derivative distributions (i.e. Ubuntu). The instructions assume kernel 2.6.27 or higher.

Linpus Lite 1.9 review

Up
vote
Down

Linpus Lite is one of those distributions that I’ve always hoped will be done right, considering that it is published by a commercial entity. However, with every release, it manages to fail in taking care of the little things that matter. Almost every desktop distribution suffers from the same problem. They get the big picture, but then it comes to delivering sane and sensible defaults and implementing features that a modern OS should have, they miss the mark. read more...

Install Pepper Flash for Chromium on Ubuntu

Up
vote
Down

This repository provides the pepflashplugin-installer package, which will download and install the newer "Pepper" (PPAPI) version of the Adobe Flash Player plugin for use with the Chromium Web browser on Ubuntu GNU/Linux. The package is similar to Ubuntu's official flashplugin-installer in that it does not include the plugin itself, but instead downloads the plugin and installs it automatically. (Specifically, it downloads the latest Google Chrome package, extracts the Pepper Flash files, and installs only those. Google Chrome itself is not installed nor otherwise used in any way.) read more...
