General :: Size Of Partitions If Multibooting?

Jan 28, 2010

I have a question about partition sizes when you are multibooting. I would like to know if 20GB partitions are an acceptable size. Is there anything to worry about with partitions around that size? I am not sure whether it makes sense to break it down further as some people have separate boot and/or home partitions. I guess if they are only 20GB in size, there is not much room left to divide further?

I am also wondering if it's okay to multi-boot four or five distros. Is that too many for a 160GB drive? My plan or idea was to multi-boot four or five distros until I decide which one I use the most or like best (well, best for an old notebook). My only notebook, currently, is a Thinkpad T41. Here are some specs:

Centrino Pentium M 1.6 GHz CPU
ATI Radeon Mobility FireGL 9000 video card (aka RV250) w/ 1440 x 900 LCD res
Intel 2200bg wifi card
Intel ethernet LAN
160GB Samsung IDE/ATA HDD
2GB DDR RAM

Is that sufficient for assessing my hardware specs? I know that the video card is only supported by the open source radeon driver and that the Intel wifi card requires specific firmware before it can work or operate. I am not sure which desktop window manager I should use so I was going to install a distro that has each. LXDE, xfce, Gnome, KDE

General :: Windows - What Tools Exist To Override An IP From A DNS Lookup Per Browser

Apr 25, 2011

Up front: the per browser (or per process, if you will) part is the important part here. I'm well aware of the /etc/hosts(and its Windows counterpart), but would like to avoid this system-global method.

What tools exist to override the IP for a given (i.e. configurable) name per browser? For Firefox there are "Modify Headers" and "Tamper Data". Both of them do not appear to be suitable for my case, because the DNS lookup is done before that. So I can only modify the HTTP headers (e.g. the Host header), but not influence the IP to which it gets sent. But manipulating to what IP it gets sent is exactly what I want to do.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multibooting With XP And Vista?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a laptop that already duel boots to Vista and XP. Is it possible to add Ubuntu to a 10 GB unused space on the hard drive?

Some more details: It came with Vista on one partition and factory backup on another. I added a partition for XP and another one for general storage. Now I have shrunk the Vista volume to make the 10 GB blank space. Vista refuses to make a new partition out of that. Ubuntu installer can't seem to use that blank space either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multibooting After Deleting XP?

Nov 4, 2010

I am a new UBUNTU user. I had installed OS in my computer in the order of XP, Win 7, and finally UBUNTU.With EasyBCD, I managed multi-booting order of XP and Win7. That is, after choosing Win7 or UBUNTU from GRUB, (If I chose Win 7) I should choose XP or Win 7 to boot.

Using UBUNTU, I think that I do not need XP, so I formatted the hard disk where XP was installed. However, after deleting XP, I can not boot Win7 from GRUB, although there is still

Ubuntu :: Formatting Tools In Windows VM Are Not Recognized?

Jan 11, 2011

I am trying to make a multipass USB flash drive which basically turns say a bootable live iso into a flash drive, but many of them at once and accessing them using GRUB. The only issue I am having is I have to do this in Windows. So I am currently using my VM to do it and the Grub installer and petousb tool are not recognizing ANY drives at all on the system. I can use my usbs on the VM though.

Installation :: Multibooting Multiple Distros With A Separate / Boot Partition For GRUB

Mar 27, 2010

Noobish question on multibooting multiple Linux distros. I have four of the current major Linux distributions. Each has been installed and run individually (no other Linux distribution installed) in a dual-boot configuration with Windoze. No problem.

What I want to do is install all four Linux distributions and multiboot them. Reading the internet it would seem this is a simple task with GRUB. The short version being - install a Linux distro with a separate /boot partition for GRUB and use GRUB to boot the other Linux distros from the GRUB boot menu.

So I installed one of the Linux distros with a separate partition for /boot. The distro installer installed GRUB in /boot and correctly setup a dual-boot configuration with Windoze. GRUB was installed to the MBR. Next I installed a second Linux distro in its own root partition and told the distros installer NOT to install GRUB to the MBR, but rather, to the boot sector of the root partion of the second Linux distro. Installation was uneventful (and I could access the second Linux partition from the first installed Linux distro, things looked ok). Then I added to following to the installed (MBR - /boot) GRUB's menu.lst:

Code: title lixux distro 2
root (hd0,7)

chainloader +1 After which I rebooted the system and the new entry for the second Linux distro now appears in the GRUB boot menu. I selected the second Linux distro from the boot menu and got the following GRUB error: Error 5 : Partition table invalid or corrupt

Server :: Samba And Other Free Software Tools Can "control" A Number Of Windows Workstations

Jul 19, 2010

I want to have a Linux server "control" a number of Windows workstations. The workstations are a mixture of XP Pro, 7 Pro, and 7 Home Premium (the latter won't join a domain so can't have all the features I want mind). I want:

Centralised username and password database. Easy to add users. Roaming user profiles, so users can switch computers and take their settings with them. If possible, settings for selected programs shared between XP and 7. (They need separate profiles.) My Documents on a network file server. I'm interested in having transparent versioning on this - perhaps by using a copy-on-write filesystem, perhaps just by using a version control app on the server and having cron make a commit every night.

Able to manage software installation and removal centrally. (This I already do, using WPKG). Able to manage configuration centrally. Basically pretty much anything the user could change, I want to be able to force a setting of. I'm thinking desktop wallpaper locking, forcing use of a web proxy, setting printers, restricting use of USB drives, etc. Printer accounting.

Give the clients resolvable names (probably DNS, maybe WINS). This is mainly to help if I need to remote into a client desktop. I don't know to what extent this can be done with Samba. I know it doesn't have all the features of Windows servers, but I know next to nothing about Windows servers. So, can what I want be done? How I'm prepared to read docs for and test things out, but I don't want to be looking for tutorials on something not possible!

General :: Can't Access Ubuntu Partition In XP Even With Tools?

Oct 3, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 to dual-boot with XP Home on my Asus 1005HA netbook. The main hard drive is an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD. I've tried all the common tools for accessing the Ubuntu partition from inside XP, but none of them appears to work. Ext2IFS didn't let me assign drive letters - in fact, it doesn't seem to detect the Ubuntu partition at all. The Ext2IFS config tool in Control Panel looks like this (the SSD is 120 GB, and the Linux partition is 10GB as I recall):

explore2fs doesn't even start. Linux Reader can't open any drive, including flash drives and external HDDs.

I can't think of anything irregular about my system except the SSD. Could that be it?

General :: Configuration Tools For Multiple Monitors For X

And a virtual narrow-monitor on the remainder of the wide-monitor. Also the visible mouse pointer does is not aligned with the active spot, an x offset of one monitor width.

But as far as I know "binutils", "bash", "grep", "ed" and "awk" are standards. What are the standards utilities to start learning that are most cross-platform [i.e.: the "shells", "services", "editors" and others].
