Using Software RAID-1 with FreeBSD

Post date: April 28, 2008, 17:04 Category: System Views: 5975 Comments
Tutorial quote: Have you ever needed a software RAID solution for a low-end server install? Perhaps you've wanted your workstation to take advantage of the redundancy provided by a disk mirror without investing in a hardware RAID controller. Has a prior painful configuration experience turned you off software RAID altogether on Unix systems?

Since 5.3-Release, FreeBSD comes with gmirror(8), which allows you to easily configure a software RAID 1 solution.

Installing Tomcat6 With SUN-Java & Apache2 Integration On Ubuntu 10.04

Post date: February 2, 2011, 13:02 Category: Installing Views: 2278 Comments
Tutorial quote: Apache Tomcat (or Jakarta Tomcat or simply Tomcat) is an open source servlet container developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Tomcat implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Sun Microsystems, and provides a "pure Java" HTTP web server environment for Java code to run. Tomcat should not be confused with the Apache web server, which is a C implementation of an HTTP web server; these two web servers are not bundled together. Apache Tomcat includes tools for configuration and management, but can also be configured by editing XML configuration files.

Command-line calculations using bc

Post date: November 29, 2006, 01:11 Category: Software Views: 4583 Comments
Tutorial quote: If like me, you do most of your work from the command-line, using vim to edit files, mutt for e-mails, cd/ls/mv/find/etc instead of a file manager, then you may get annoyed by having to fire up a GUI calculator to make (what may sometimes be) a single calculation.

One useful feature of calculating on the command-line is that you can see what you've typed. For instance, sometimes when I'm entering a long, complex calculation on a calculator (either the GUI or the solid, hold-in-your-hand type), I sometimes forget if I've actually typed in all those numbers or made the calculations in the right order. Maybe it's just me ...

Postfix Virtual Hosting With LDAP Backend & Dovecot (IMAP/POP3) On Ubuntu 8.04

Post date: August 3, 2008, 10:08 Category: Installing Views: 2961 Comments
Tutorial quote: I have been running with a MySQL backend for virtual hosting for some time, but when I discovered Phamm and the added FTP feature I decided to switch to LDAP as backend for Postfix with virtual hosting. In view of the fact that the installation and configuration guide of Phamm is lacking some basic information it took me quite some time to put it all together and get it working. Piecing it all together was not simple so I would like to share how I configured it and got it all working toghether.

Get your wireless card working in Ubuntu

Post date: June 3, 2006, 11:06 Category: Network Views: 4471 Comments
Tutorial quote: Okay so you have a wireless card that shows up in ubuntu but doesnt connect to any wireless network?

The reason the card shows up but doesnt work is because ubuntu is distributed with its driver (so it can recognize it) but not with its firmware (so it can USE it) for legal reasons.

However you can take the firmware out of the windows drivers and put them into ubuntu and make the card work
Follow these steps to get your wireless card working under ubuntu dapper 6.06

Wireless networking using the ndiswrapper module

Post date: June 4, 2006, 17:06 Category: Network Views: 5356 Comments
Tutorial quote: Getting wireless networking working with the ndiswrapper driver is fairly straightfoward if your card has an associated Windows driver. Here we'll look at getting wireless networking working for a Dell Inspiron 1300, you should be able to follow the recipe for most other wireless networking cards which are supported ndiswrapper.

ndiswrapper is a collection of utilities which essentially allows you to load and run a network card driver written for Microsoft Windows upon your Linux kernel. This means that a card which isn't supported natively may be used indirectly.

Recover a dead hard drive using dd

Post date: October 23, 2006, 03:10 Category: System Views: 15353 Comments
Tutorial quote: The Unix program dd is a disk copying util that you can use at the command line in order to make a disk image. It makes a bit-by-bit copy of the drive it's copying, caring nothing about filesystem type, files, or anything else. It's a great way to workaround the need for Norton Ghost.

Normally, in order to make a disk image, the disk you're copying from has to be able to spin up and talk -- in other words, it's OK to make a copy if the disk is healthy. But what happens when your disk is becoming a doorstop? As long as it continues to spin, even with physical damage on the drive, dd and Mac OS X will get you out of the fire.
