Three Ways To Access Linux Partitions (ext2/ext3) From Windows On Dual-Boot Systems

Post date: January 20, 2008, 12:01 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 7915 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.

Building A Linux Router

Post date: February 26, 2007, 07:02 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 9294 Comments
Tutorial quote: Building a reliable, full-featured broadband router can be very easy and cost-efficient. This article is about building one for routing a LAN to the Internet with NAT (Network Address Translation -- Linux users also call it as IP Masquerading) using an old computer and a Linux micro-distribution designed to have very low hardware requirements. We'll end up having a very simple and stable system, yet featuring e.g. iptables based stateful firewalling and remote administration.

Controlling your locale with environment variables

Post date: May 2, 2006, 12:05 Category: System Views: 3534 Comments
Tutorial quote: People all over the world use Linux in dozens of languages. Since Linux's source code is free and open, speakers of minority languages can add support for their languages themselves, even though a large corporation might not consider them a worthwhile market. If you use more than one language, or a language other than English, you should know about Linux's use of locales to support different languages. Indeed, understanding locales can be useful even if you only use English.

Using DSL with Linux

Post date: April 12, 2005, 18:04 Category: Hardware Views: 4319 Comments
Tutorial quote: The following tips will hopefully help give a well rounded view into the necessary settings and configuration that apply to most newer flavors. For older flavors using KDE or older versions of SuSe, you will need to install the PPPoE driver before configuration is possible. These drivers should be on your Linux flavor’s website.

You'll find that connectivity to your broadband service using almost all flavors of Linux is dependent on two things: what type of service you have purchased and correctly setting the IP and DNS configurations.

Create your own init.d scripts

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: System Views: 8974 Comments
Tutorial quote: Have a Linux executable that you would like to run as a daemon? Making your own init.d scripts can be a bit tricky, but I can help you out.

The directory /etc/init.d/ is a location on a Linux file system that contains scripts for changing init states.

For details on Linux run levels look here.

The run levels that are most important to us are 2, 3 and 5.

VERY basic sample init.d script (Replace italics respectively):

How to suspend and hibernate a laptop under Linux

Post date: June 7, 2006, 20:06 Category: Hardware Views: 5583 Comments
Tutorial quote: Many people prefer working with laptops instead of desktops for the flexibility they offer. Some of them would also like to switch to a free and open source operating system like GNU/Linux and have their laptop do all the things that proprietary OSes offer, such as suspending their laptops. Several distributions try to make this work out of the box, but knowing what's under the hood always comes in handy, particularly when something goes wrong and needs fixing. Let's take a look at how to suspend and hibernate your laptop under Linux.

NIST Publically-Released Red Hat Enterprise Linux Benchmark

Post date: October 21, 2006, 04:10 Category: Benchmarks Views: 7704 Comments
Tutorial quote: The Benchmark is a compilation of security configuration actions and settings that "harden" Red Hat Linux operating systems. It is a CIS Level-I benchmark: the prudent level of minimum due care for operating system security. This benchmark was developed and tested on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) including RHEL 2.1, RHEL 3.0, and Fedora Core 1, 2, & 3. It is likely to work for other Linux distributions - especially Red Hat and Fedora derivatives - as well.

Windows Linux DualBoot Tutorial

Post date: April 1, 2006, 05:04 Category: Installing Views: 3357 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial was written to help set up a dual boot on a SATA drive but it will also work for PATA so continue forward and I will let you know if you need to skip something. In order to have a fully functional dual boot system it is preferred that Windows be loaded first. After that you can load Linux and easily dump the boot configuration on Windows NTLDR file (comparable to Linux boot file).

How to Install Latest Wine in debian Etch

Post date: December 22, 2008, 07:12 Category: Software Views: 3756 Comments
Tutorial quote: Wine makes it possible to run Windows programs alongside any Unix-like operating system,particularly Linux. At its heart, Wine is an implementation of the Windows Application
Programing Interface (API) library, acting as a bridge between the Windows program and Linux.Think of Wine as a compatibility layer, when a Windows program tries to perform a function that Linux doesn’t normally understand, Wine will translate that program’s instruction into one supported by the system. For example, if a program asks the system to create a Windows pushbutton or text-edit field, Wine will convert that instruction into its Linux equivalent in the form of a command to the window manager using the standard X11 protocol.
