Post date: October 6, 2008, 21:10 Category: System Views: 3790 Comments
Tutorial quote: rsnapshot is a filesystem backup utility based on rsync. Using rsnapshot, it is possible to take snapshots of your filesystems at different points in time.

Giving users a home directory automatically

Post date: June 16, 2006, 21:06 Category: System Views: 2834 Comments
Tutorial quote: If you are using LDAP or NIS to manage users you might discover users having problems because they don't have a home directory on each machine they can connect to. Thankfully there is a simple solution for creating home directories upon demand for users.

The Pluggable Authentication Modules library, or PAM, is a collection of shared libraries which control how users login to systems. There are a number of modules installed which can be used to restrict user access to systems in different ways. There are also several utility modules which can be used to customise login behaviour.

Unfortunately, if you are running a special application, especially one you wrote yourself, no live CD will be tailored exactly to your needs. But creating you own live CD is easier than you might think, with Slax and its easy customization utility MySlax Creator.

Post date: January 20, 2008, 12:01 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 6453 Comments
Tutorial quote: If you have a dual-boot Windows/Linux system, you probably know this problem: you can access files from your Windows installation while you are in Linux, but not the other way round. This tutorial shows three ways how you can access your Linux partitions (with ext2 or ext3 filesystem) from within Windows: Explore2fs, DiskInternals Linux Reader, and the Ext2 Installable File System For Windows. While the first two provide read-only access, the Ext2 Installable File System For Windows can be used for read and write operations.
