A Beginner's Guide To LVM

Post date: January 16, 2007, 19:01 Category: System Views: 4794 Comments
Tutorial quote: 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.

Tutorial quote: There are 3 protocols dealing with time: NTP (port 123), Time (port 37), and Daytime (port 13).

Changing Desktop Appearance On Linux Mint 11 (Advanced)

Post date: October 13, 2011, 07:10 Category: Desktop Views: 5121 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial is supposed to show you how to change the GNOME desktop appearance on Linux Mint 11 further than the standard options of the Appearance section in the Control Center allow. I am going to use several different applications for this cause. This is the standard desktop that comes with Mint, so if you have not changed anything about that all steps should work fine for you. Be aware that the use of the nVidia proprietary drivers may not be unrisky!

Tutorial quote: Ever working in KDE or Gnome, your application freezes and even the close button doesn’t work? Then it is time to pull out the “kill” command.

Version control for non-programmers with Subversion

Post date: June 9, 2005, 04:06 Category: Software Views: 3715 Comments
Tutorial quote: Imagine a utility that lets you make an annotated backup of any of your project files with the click of a mouse or a single command. It would let you review the history of your backups and recover any version you wished. And it would integrate with your file browser and would keep track of files that have changed since your last backup. The utility exists -- Subversion, and its companion program TortoiseSVN, can help you safely manage your files as you work with them.
