New story! Linux Mint 18 Screenshot Tour

A new project called X-Apps was started and its goal is to produce generic applications for traditional GTK desktop environments. The idea behind this project is to replace applications which no longer integrate properly outside of a particular environment (this is the case for a growing number of GNOME applications) and to give our desktop environments the same set of core applications, so that each change, each new feature being developed, each little improvement made in one of them will benefit not just one environment, but all of them.

New story! Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) on CentOS 7 (Initiator and Target)

  • Howtoforge Linux Howtos und Tutorials (Posted by bob on Jun 30, 2016 3:21 PM EDT)
  • Groups: Linux; Story Type: News Story
This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running CentOS 7. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.
