Setting up RAID-1 mirroring on a running remote Linux system over ssh session

Setting up RAID-1 mirroring on a running remote Linux system over ssh session RAID -1 allows to create an exact copy of the original drive. Thus, it results into the increased fault tolerance and easy data recovery option for single server. It is true that the best and easy way to setup a RAID 1 is during installation. But if you forget to setup RAID – 1 during installation or if you have added new hard disk after installation, then this how to covers setting up a RAID-1 mirroring on a running remote Linux system over ssh session.

Ruby and .NET - how will they taste together?

Wow, big news to start off my new blog. The Gardens Point GP Ruby .NET development team has announced an initial beta version of their system.

At this point, they claim that it can compile Ruby source into verifiable .Net v2.0 assembly, or it can run Ruby code directly in a compile, load and execute cycle. They do warn that their implementation is not yet complete, although it does pass everything in samples/test.rb (I wonder if they're using theRubicon/Rubytests stuff for further testing?).

Think tanks like Heartland and their ties with Microsoft: What everybody should know

LXer Feature: 27-May-06

Recently, Mr. Steven Titch wrote an article about Open Document which contained Microsoft-style disinformation. At that moment, some of our readers suggested Heartland or Mr. Titch might have been funded by Microsoft. While I couldn't find any direct ties, there are lot of indirect ties between the Heartland Institute and Microsoft, and at a certain point in my research, even the name of Mr. Abramoff showed up. A summary of the things I found.

My hardware toolbag

You don't need to be a super-geek to start diagnosing hardware problems. Diagnostics is an art. Specifically, it's the art of determining the source of a problem and troubleshooting a solution. No matter how good you are at diagnostics, the right tools in your hardware bag can make you better.

Get ready for the Vista/SUSE smackdown!

In one corner, we have the champ -- Windows. Come January, it will come out swinging with what Microsoft tells us is the latest and greatest version ever -- Vista.

In the other corner, we have the challenger -- OpenSUSE 10.1, the latest shipping version of Novell/SUSE's community Linux. Sometime this summer, its commercial version, SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, will come out looking to KO the champ.

Before this epic battle begins, let's take a look at their training camps.

Linux: Tainting the Kernel From Userland

Theodore Ts'o proposed a new patch allowing a userland program to taint the kernel by writing to/proc/sys/kernel/tainted, "to be used when userspace is potentially doing something naughty that might compromise the kernel." When asked when this would be needed, Theodore went on to explain, "the problem is that the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) **requires** that the JVM provide class functions which provide direct access to physical memory; all physical memory.

Linux: Fun With Kernel Names

Most 2.6 Linux kernel releases have contained a unique name that is only visible within the top level makefile. Some examples, 2.6.17 was named "Lori Rules", 2.6.16 was named "Sliding Snow Leopard", 2.6.14 was named Affluent Albatross, and 2.6.13 was named "Woozy Numbat"

Kyle McMartin recently posted a patch to thelkml with the intention of making the kernel name visible, leading Linux creator Linus Torvalds to explain, "well, part of the charm of the name is that it's totally meaningless. I can pick names out of my *ss, and they don't matter in the least, and nobody will ever see it except in the kernel diffs."
