Reddit: [SUSE] SLES11sp3 pxe boot environment mount v1

Wednesday 26th of November 2014 01:58:41 AM

Hey Guys,

I am having a weird issue. The nfs server that I have doesn't accept nfs v2 and thus also denies mount v1/v2. My suse11 pxe boot environment uses mount version 1. While when in fully installed and loaded it uses version 3. I dont have an active SUSE support contract so I was wondering if anyone knew of a possible patch or bug information that might help with this?

If this is the wrong subreddit please let me know, /r/suse seems dead.

Reddit: New to Linux, how do I install a non repo application to run from bash by typing its name?

Wednesday 26th of November 2014 01:55:52 AM

I just installed metasploit and I downloaded the third-party tool 'Armitage' to compliment it. I can run most tools from bash by typing its name, google-chrome-stable, aircrack-ng, etc. but Armitage doesn't include an installer with the download, it's just a runnable program from its uncompressed folder.

I 'cd' into 'armitage/' and type 'sudo ./armitage' to run it.

How can I install programs similar to the way Armitage is currently, to run by simply typing 'sudo <NAME>' in bash?

Thanks for help

Reddit: Shared /home (like the "old days") - Does anyone still do it?

Wednesday 26th of November 2014 12:27:43 AM

So "back in the day", *nix systems would often be setup with a single central shared /home path that was mounted from all boxes so each user would have the same /home no matter which system they logged in to.

  • Is this still a viable arrangement?
  • Does anyone here do it?

I've been pondering the idea of doing it at home, mounting my /home to either my Synology NAS, or a FreeNAS box. It would give me the same benefits of having a separate local partition for /home when upgrading, plus I can share my data between boxes, as well as take advantage of things like ZFS (if I mounted it to a FreeNAS box).

LinuxInsider: 'The Practice of Cloud System Administration' Brings Network Management Down to Earth

Wednesday 26th of November 2014 12:17:33 AM
The Practice of Cloud System Administration, Volume 2 is a look into IT gone bad in some companies, and how doing it right can salvage enterprise use of cloud computing. The authors make 11 statements about computers and their networks on the first page of the book's preface. They ask which statements are true. If you get most of them correct, you probably have only one reason left to read this book: It will challenge some of what you hold valid. However, you most likely will get numerous wrong answers.

Reddit: Linux on old laptop

Tuesday 25th of November 2014 11:00:25 PM

Hi, I recently got an old laptop from my brother. I've been using Windows all my life, but I want to try out installing linux on it. I am completely new to linux, and I want to use it for web browsing, web development and writing documents and spreadsheets etc. Also if possible I'd use it for photoshopping.

What distro do you think would suit me the best, based on your experience? :) The computer is a Toshiba Satellite a500-19p.

Thank you.

Reddit: Where to get started with game development

Tuesday 25th of November 2014 10:50:12 PM

Hello! I have been in the Linux world for a while now, running it beside windows. I've been using unity for so long now, and I understand c and python. I'm not talking about converting games to Linux, I'm talking about making games, where to get started, what engines are the best, tutorials on how to use engines etc. I would preferably want to have control of my text editor because I've been using vim for years and want to continue to do so.

Python 3 Support Added To The GNOME Shell
