LVM configuration on Openfiler 2.3

Filed under
Linux

Openfiler is one of two free and open source NAS/SAN applications in active development (the other one is FreeNAS). By default, Openfiler is installed to hard disk using the traditional Linux disk partitioning system. Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) adds a layer of flexibility to disk space configuration and management that is not possible with the traditional method of disk partitioning. With Openfiler, however, your only option is by manual configuration. This tutorial offers a step-by-step guide to installing Openfiler 2.3 on disk using LVM.

Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn" Arrives in a Few Days

When Ubuntu hits the Final Freeze point the developers stop pushing updates and changes, and everyone focuses on the major bugs and problems that haven't been fixed yet. An exception can be made if something really terrible happens, but that wasn't the case until now and it's unlikely to occur. Now, Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) is scheduled to arrive on October 23, this Thursday. Users will be offered the chance to upgrade their systems, but this is an intermediary release and it's not likely that many users will take this step. The Ubuntu LTS release was just six months ago and not too many users are going to exchange the five years of support for 14.04 with just nine months for 14.10. Read more

Porteus 3.1 RC1 Is a Bleeding Edge Slackaware-Based Distro with Linux Kernel 3.17

Porteus is a special operating system that is designed to be very fast and feature all kind of bleeding edge features. It's also optimized to run from all sorts of mediums, not just hard disks. It's built on Slackware and it's extremely small, a characteristic that is determined by the fact that it's always loaded completely in the memory. Another interesting aspect of the distro is the fact that it uses modules instead of a package manager. These modules can precompiled for the operating system and users can just activate and deactivate them. Also, installing modules in Porteus works very intuitively and it can be done by double clicking on the modules. Read more
