Reading Output from another TTY in Real Time

....without using `screen` (Process was already started) Basically, the situation is this: I am currently "consolidating" some drive space and rearranging some NFS shares. I have about 5 separate rsync processes running - some local, some via ssh. Basically, I want to know if it is possible to view ...

Specify Debian Boot Parameter kern.hz

Hey all, I am trying to figure out a way to optimize Debian in a VMWare environment so that it is not sucking up a load of the host system's memory. While using FreeBSD guests, there was a little trick that you could use in /boot/loader.conf to set "kern.hz=100." The VM went from using 15% of the me...

Lucid Lynx

Running this in a VM today for the first time. I've been real busy, and test-driving new distros is kind of a hobby of mine. For a beginner, this is really nice. For a long time Linux user, like myself, it seems to be moving more and more away from the command line. I did the old: sed i 's/karmic/lu...

There is a package called "logrotate" that you could install that does most of that for you.

In vi, to get to the bottom of a file, just look at the number of lines you have once you open your file. Then, enter command mode and enter the last line number. Suppose your file has 3432 lines. Just go to command mode and:

INX -- Live Linux CD without X

http://inx.maincontent.net/ Pretty cool. Has some tutorials built-in for noobs to familiarize them in a CLI only environment. I just needed to write zeros to a drive, so I just did the old CTRL-C, but it is worth checking out. I find it useful because I am impatient, and Ubuntu and Knoppix take to l...

I always opt for named based virtual hosts whenever possible. Not exactly sure why your company would want you to use ethernet bridging in the first place, especially if they are doing something that you can get away with by simply using named based hosts. Bridging is usually used in a Xen or other ...

They use many of the same repos that Red Hat Enterprise Linux uses. Or maybe I should say that their repos are just copied. Whatever comes out for RHEL comes out for CentOS and before that, White Box, so I don't think it s because of old packages. CentOS is, like what I was saying before, like Debia...

Nothing that wouldn't satisfy me, but CentOS is kind of like teh Debian of rpm based distros, in the sense that most of their packages are ancient. I am not sure what these guys are doing (my clients) buy they need mysql > 5.1. CentOS is at 5.0.77. I've been looking around for RPM packages, but I wo...

Thanks Void, I looked over that page you gave me, and I didn't see the patch anywhere. There was a link to a "fix" but it took me to a 404 page. Does this mean I should just wait for the 5.1.45 release? I am kind of new to patching "bleeding" software. It also said something about the mysql trunk tr...
