Server :: Proper Way To Sync Debian Mirror But Preserve Sarge?

Aug 21, 2010

I have been tooling around with different way of getting our local Debian network mirror back up and running with different various scripts. I have tried apt-mirror which was a breeze to setup and run, anonftpsync again super easy to get rolling.

My question is there a way to make sure our Sarge distro doesn't get deleted from the mirror? A filtering command for rsync possibly?

I started to go over the script for the ftpsync (debian recommended!) and to be honest it seems way over my head due to lack of documentation that I have been able to find.

General :: Proper Way To 'sync' Branches And Keep Them Separate?

Jul 26, 2010

So I created a new branch from master and eventually merge the changes back, only some changes seemed to merge and it would seem I merged in one direction. Eventually I just decided to be sure master received all the 'experimental' changes then I deleted the experimental branch and made a new one. So this question is turning into a few questions suddenly:

1) How do I match up branches but keep them separate?

1a) Is that bad practice to not just make a new branch?

2) Why were the branches not the same after after one merge?

2a) Am I only supposed to call a merge on the one that I want to have all of the changes?

I have all my CDs in FLAC format for playback in my home but like most folks I have a portable.Now, converting my collection to Mp3 fits on my player but its a pain to manually convert each new album. It would be cool to script something that could be run on cron or manually to keep them synced.

Debian Installation :: Upgrade Sarge To Etch To Lenny?

Mar 29, 2010

<Big Red Flashing Sign that reads, "NEWBIE with two Linux books and very little brain"> I just installed Sarge from a CD onto an old PC and ended up with Debian Linux 3.1, Kernel 2.4.

PC Specs:
Spacewalker Mainboard (AK31V3.1) SocketA AMD Athlon/Duron Processor based DDR Main Board
2x 256MG DDR DIM Q
350w power supply
NVIDIA GeForce AGP8X 6200 Graphics Card 256 MB RAM
Award Modular Bios v6.00PG 12/05/2003
LG Monitor
USB Mouse, Standard keyboard

I did not configure any servers or do any package selections but did manage to get the internet connection working (actually Debian managed that all by itself). I'd like to "upgrade" to Lenny.

Do I need to upgrade to Etch first or can I go straight to Lenny? At what point do I "upgrade" the kernel (before upgrading to Etch/Lenny? After?)

Debian :: Upgrade From Sarge To Lenny (via Etch) Has Broken Cron?

Sep 20, 2010

I've been upgrading a bunch of our servers from sarge to etch and then to lenny, on two of these servers, cron has broken, cronjobs will not run. On another two (that have no significant differences from the others) cron is unaffected I created a simple job to run while I was testing

*/1 * * * * root /usr/local/mailtest-1 in the script is echo test mail from busted server | mail -s "test mail from your busted server" [URL]. and that runs fine if I run it manually, I've added it into /etc/crontab and crontab -e but haven't got a single mail from it. The cron service is running

I tried apt-get remove --purge and then a re-install but it doesn't seem to have worked. All the logs have stopped rotating as well so I'm starting to think that maybe it's not a fault with cron but with some other service that it depends on. However, I've not been able to figure out what that might be.

Debian :: Creating Mirror Back-up Hot Swap Server?

Mar 20, 2011

I am currently running Debian on a system with 3 scsi hard drives with Raid and have an identical back up server. I want to schedule a daily "mirror" copy of the server operating system and data so that if the primary server drops I can move the network plug to the next server and be back in business. Can someone let me know what would be the best solutions for this? I am new to linux so this may be an obvious question so if it is I applogize but I have been searching through the forums and have not found an adeqate solution.

Server :: Soft RAID (mirror) On Debian With Different HDDs Size?

Apr 18, 2010

I would like to build a NAS from PC (D510MO) running Debian. I have two HDDs (one 3.5 1T and one 2.5 500G).
On 3.5 HDD I have already two partitions 100M+40G dedicated for Win7-64. Now, I want to install Debian (second OS) on this PC and to have some kind of soft RAID or disk mirror of 500G space. I am planning to create a third partition on 3.5 HDD of 500G (identical as 2.5 HDD size) in order to have a mirror 500G space.

Please send my some suggestions on where I have to install Debian; on 500G 2.5HDD or 500G 3.5HDD!Will Debian boot from both HDDs 3.5 or 2.5 after I create the mirror? What Linux soft I have to use for mirroring (mdadm)?

I need to make an ISO9660 file from a directory, but some of the files have names that are logner than 37 characters. I could not find a way to get the long names preserved.
I've tried various ways but in vain. "genisoimage -J -R -U -max-iso9660-names -o tst.iso cdroot" gets most close to the end, but not close enough!

CentOS 5 :: Easiest Way To Mirror Existing Server Setup On A New Server?

Jan 13, 2011

We have two CentOS 5 servers in production (web and database). We are setting up a single staging server that will mirror the configurations of these servers as closely as possible. What is the easiest way to ensure the exact same software and configs as the production servers are setup on the new staging server. Our contracted data center provider has already informed us that they do not perform images and NO we do not have physical access to the machines. It is undetermined whether we will be virtualizing the staging server into two virtual servers yet, so for the purposes of this post lets assume we are not. I'm seeking a faster/more precise method than doing this by eye and hand.

Some information on our web server code...

Server :: Splitting A Mirror With LVM?

Feb 22, 2010

I'm running Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 6).

I've created a mirror of a Logical Volume with this command:

# lvconvert -m1 --corelog /dev/datavg/data /dev/dm-16

Now I've this:

# lvs -a -o name,copy_percent,devices
LV Copy% Devices
data 100.00 data_mimage_0(0),data_mimage_1(0)
[data_mimage_0] /dev/dm-11(0)


My goal was to remove devices dm-10, dm-11 and dm-14 from my VG, so I decided to extend the VG with dm-16 and mirror my data LV to that device, then split that mirror from the other devices. The FS is mounted and need to stay online...

Ubuntu :: Proper Way To Start A New X-server?

Jul 3, 2011

how to properly start a new x-server(duh!), but i have few a couple questions to be more direct. The main purpose is to play games and such, also other utilities such as connect through ssh to another pc.

Now to the questions: -Does the use of a new x-server really improves game perfomance? In my tries i couldn't notice, but the obvious advantage of return to regular desktop without quiting the game seems not that great when switching between servers lagged a lot( in the tries).

General :: Proper Way To Organize File Server ?

Mar 7, 2011

I am setting up a file server using Ubuntu and want to make sure I set up a folder structure that will last. Where should I be placing everything that I am sharing (Music, Pictures, Videos, etc)? In theory, if I was setting this up on Windows, I would create a folder directly under C: and set up the different areas of sharing under that (not that that approach would be best either).

Based on constructive criticism, the question is rather ambiguous. My question could be restated to ask "Where shouldn't I set this up? Would /usr be an appropriate place to start? Or would /opt be better?

Debian Installation :: LiveCD - No Proper Display

Dec 15, 2014

I intend to switch to Debian form PCLinuxOS. I am not an experienced Linux user. But I intend to switch all my machines to Linux. I have used Antix as well on an older machine. I am a bit familiar with the basic Linux CLI commands.

I intend to switch to Debian as I think the support (Forums and probably mailinglist) are more active then PCLoS and Antix. Sadly enough though the live cd gives a problem which no distro gave on the same machine. And I really do not know what to do about it.

When starting the first line that prints is:

Umount: can't mount /live overlay: Device or resource busy
