BBC admits massive underestimate of Linux users

The BBC has backtracked on claims that it has only hundreds of Linux users accessing its website. Last month, the BBC's director of BBC Future Media and Technology, Ashley Highfield, told a magazine that just 400-600 Linux users visited the BBC sites every week. Now, Highfield claims on his blog that the figure could be as high as 97,600.

Keeping Command History across Multiple Sessions

The bash shell maintains a history of the commands you entered. You can re-execute a command by recalling it from the history, without having to re-type it. Life is simple if we operate on a single shell session at any given time. If you have 2 simultaneous sessions, you may be surprised that the history does not have the commands you expect.

SSH Port Forwarding

SSH (Secure SHell) is well known to Linux administrators as the de facto method for connecting to other systems. SSH long ago supplanted other connection methods because it strongly encrypts the connection between the hosts, ensuring that passwords and any transmitted data are safe from prying eyes. On Fedora® and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® systems, and many other Linux distributions, the OpenSSH suite provides the programs for this purpose. An administrator typically runs SSH to login to another system, often to run a shell on the remote host and issue commands. SSH, however, has many extra tricks up its sleeve beyond simply securing a connection.

Video ads broker says best part of open source is the cost: zero brokers online video ad space and creates commercials for clients to embed in existing content, similar to television advertising. CEO Jake Varghese calls his company "AdSense for videos. It's a way for video publishers to monetize their work." Publishers can create their own commercial content, or hire to create it for them, and then insert it before or in the middle of the videos. Varghese is a big proponent of open source; he says he wouldn't use anything else to build his business.

OpenBSD: The proverbial thrill of victory ... and the agony of defeat

  • LXer Linux News; By Steven Rosenberg (Posted by Steven_Rosenber on Nov 7, 2007 12:18 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Reviews
So giddy was I that the OpenBSD CD agreed to boot on my converted Maxspeed Maxterm thin client (with a VIA C3 Samuel processor that wouldn't allow the install of FreeBSD, NetBSD, DesktopBSD or PC-BSD) that I immediately launched into an install today. Whoa. I can't remember an installation process that was this geeky. You MUST have the instructions in front of you, or you will get nowhere fast.

Linux Storage: Creating a Partition Size Larger than 2TB

If you are Linux on desktop chances are you are using small partition, but on server you need large partition. For example, you cannot create 4TB partition size (RAID based) using fdisk command. It will not allow you to create a partition that is greater than 2TB. To solve this problem use GNU parted command with GPT. It supports Intel EFI/GPT partition tables. Partition Table (GPT) is a standard for the layout of the partition table on a physical hard disk. It is a part of the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) standard proposed by Intel as a replacement for the outdated PC BIOS, one of the few remaining relics of the original IBM PC. EFI uses GPT where BIOS uses a Master Boot Record (MBR).
