Looking for people to share server with

Filed under
Just talk

The last few months I have been using a server for security research, kernel testing, mod security rules testing, firewalls, dos protection, you name it. As well as to host my ircd and site. We basically have the server for development and testing although it is ran just like any other hosting server. In order to do the research we do we must keep a server. One is directadmin and the other is cpanel which we bought recently to learn the ins and outs of it and perhaps write some useful tutorials and walkthroughs for admins. Plus we figured we could sell hosting on it to balance out our budget.

This has not really worked which I don't guess we marketed hosting that hard and I would really like not to even deal with basic hosting and clients, all that stuff.

What we are looking for is some people to come in on the server with us like a 1/4, 1/3, or 1/2 share. This would be ideal for developers as we will install any module or software you need as long as it doesn't interfere with anything else on the server. Also ideal for bigger sites with irc or whatever. There is teamspeak installed on both boxes and IRC and adult content is allowed.

This is NOT hosting, this is a server co-operative and there is no support tickets and all that. Just me on msn if you ever need anything installed or something is broke, that is far as support goes so if you don't know your way around a linux server then this probably isn't for you. Also no small hosting accounts, just fractional shares of the server.

People with shares on the server can reseller hosting if they like but you are responsible for the people you host.

This is a totally non profit, and all shares will be at cost. Proof of billing can be shown. I would prefer to have only developers and large sites with binary processes then reseller hosting but we are flexible.

So if anyone would be interested in something like this you can message me on msn jon__felosi@hotmail.com Serious inquiries only and again, this is not a server hosting service, it is a non-profit server co-operative.

The specs of the directadmin server is pentium 4 3.2 ghz with ht, 1 gig ram, and 160 gb hd sata. 100mbit connection, 1tb of bandwidth monthly, directadmin control panel, and centos 4.4 OS with grsecurity and all other security software. Contact me on msn for pricing and what is available.

The cpanel server is pentium4 3.2ghz with HT, 1 gb ram, 120gb hd, Cpanel/WHM, CentOS with grsecurity and other security software, it is on a 10mbit dedicated pipe with unmetered bandwidth so around 3300 gb transfer monthl;y. Contact me for availabilty.

People who do want half share will be granted root access as long as you dont do any oddball stuff or mess anything up otherwise I am the one who manages the servers.

PlayOnLinux For Easier Use Of Wine

PlayOnLinux is a free program that helps to install, run, and manage Windows software on Linux. It can also manage virtual C: drives (known as Wine prefixes), and download and install certain Windows libraries for getting some software to run on Wine properly. Creating different drives using different Wine versions is also possible. It is very handy because what runs well in one version may not run as well (if at all) on a newer version. There is PlayOnMac for macOS and PlayOnBSD for FreeBSD. Read

Linux Kernel: KPTI, SEV, CBS

  • Experimental KPTI Support For x86 32-bit Linux
    For the Kernel Page Table Isolation (KPTI) support currently within the Linux kernel for addressing the Meltdown CPU vulnerability it's currently limited to 64-bit on the x86 side, but for the unfortunate souls still running x86 32-bit operating systems, SUSE is working on such support.
  • AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization Is Ready To Roll With Linux 4.16
    With the Linux 4.16 kernel cycle that is expected to begin immediately following the Linux 4.15 kernel debut on Sunday, AMD's Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) technology supported by their new EPYC processors will be mainline. Going back to the end of 2016 have been Linux patches for Secure Encrypted Virtualization while with Linux 4.16 it will finally be part of the mainline kernel and supported with KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) virtualization.
  • Deadline scheduler part 2 — details and usage
    Linux’s deadline scheduler is a global early deadline first scheduler for sporadic tasks with constrained deadlines. These terms were defined in the first part of this series. In this installment, the details of the Linux deadline scheduler and how it can be used will be examined. The deadline scheduler prioritizes the tasks according to the task’s job deadline: the earliest absolute deadline first. For a system with M processors, the M earliest deadline jobs will be selected to run on the M processors. The Linux deadline scheduler also implements the constant bandwidth server (CBS) algorithm, which is a resource-reservation protocol. CBS is used to guarantee that each task will receive its full run time during every period. At every activation of a task, the CBS replenishes the task’s run time. As the job runs, it consumes that time; if the task runs out, it will be throttled and descheduled. In this case, the task will be able to run only after the next replenishment at the beginning of the next period. Therefore, CBS is used to both guarantee each task’s CPU time based on its timing requirements and to prevent a misbehaving task from running for more than its run time and causing problems to other jobs.

Graphics: Mesa and AMDGPU

  • Mesa 17.3.3 Released With RADV & ANV Vulkan Driver Fixes
    Mesa 17.3.3 is now available as the latest point release for the Mesa 17.3 stable series. This bi-weekly point release to Mesa presents several RADV Vega/GFX9 fixes, various Intel ANV Vulkan driver fixes, a DRI3 fix, and random fixes to the OpenGL drivers like RadeonSI, Etnaviv, and even Swrast.
  • R600g "Soft" FP64 Shows Signs Of Life, Enabling Older GPUs To Have OpenGL 4 In 2018
    Most pre-GCN AMD graphics cards are still limited to OpenGL 3.3 support at this time due to not supporting FP64. Only the HD 5800/6900 series on R600g currently have real double-precision floating-point support working right now so at present they are on OpenGL 4.3 rather than 3.3, but those other generations may be catching up soon thanks to the "soft" FP64 code.
  • AMDGPU DC Gets More Raven Ridge Improvements, Audio Fixes
    Harry Wentland of AMD has sent out the latest batch of patches for the AMDGPU DC display code stack. Fortunately it lightens up the DRM driver by about six thousand lines thanks to removing some unused code. Besides gutting out a chunk of unused code, the DC code has a few audio fixes (no word yet on supporting newer audio formats with DC), fixes on driver unload, a "bunch" of continued Raven Ridge display updates, and various other code clean-ups.
  • AMDGPU Firmware Blobs Updated For Video Encode/Decode
    There are updated AMDGPU microcode/firmware files now available for recent Radeon GPUs. The updated firmware files now available via the main linux-firmware.git repository are centered around the video blocks: UVD video decoding, VCE video encode, and the new VCN video encode/decode block with Raven Ridge.
