The main use I have for this is virtual servers being able to use an LVM volume but not occupying all of the space. It saves time in deploying machines and copying them so you are only copying the space they are using (eg. 5GB / 60GB vs the full 60GB). There are some disadvantages which is mainly the fact that thin pools by their nature allow you to "overallocate" disk space which is that you could use more space than is available on the disk itself and corrupt your data........
First we need to create dhclient.conf if it doesn't exist or edit it:
#add this line at the top add the IPs as commas they will be the highest priority nameservers and whatever your ISP gives you will be used after these one (good for DNS backup)
prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1,10.10.25.8;
After you restart your network or run dhclient again you should see the contents of........
This is mainly the case on Centos but applies to other distros and situations. If you are running programs in the background with the &, at least in Centos it is usually not honored and if you quit or are disconnected the backgrounded programs will be sent sighup and be shut down.
The simplest way around this instead of using & is to start any programs or commands with "nohup"
This seems to mainly affect new installs of Windows and especially on XP randomly.
There are whole pages dedicated to the subject but none of them have a simple proper solution.
They and Microsoft say to use "Microsoft Fix It", the only problem is it requires .NET and many new installs of Windows don't have it by default.
The simple solution you asked for
Just reboot Windows and that is how Ifixed it.........
This server has been running for weeks without issue, it's currently only using 1 of 2 CPUs as it is running in the office as a test bed (mainly due to the handle 12 bay storage/great for testing HDDs). The errors below seem to mainly be from AMD CPUs, it's only happened a single time and in the days since Igot that error it hasn't occurrred.
Interestingly enough /proc/cpuinfo still shows all 4 cores of the CPU (Opteron 2373 Quadcore HE) and the functionality doesn't seem........

even setting privvmpages to a specific setting DOES not affect "free -m" in containers.
This is probably a kernel issue

My XBOX's dashboard/firmware was from sometime in 2008 when I first bought the system. I mainly played using composite cables but at my brother in law's house we used HDMI. The very first time it worked, but then I bought some games that did some update and after that HDMI never worked.
The symptoms besides having on sound is that your XBOX will show PC monitor resolutions but won't have any option to say you have a 720P or 1080P display, this means the XBOX firmware is fa........
Not sure what rsync switches/options to use?
The short version would be:
I think these are really common sense options to use and probaby should be the default.
Explanation of rsync switches
P = display the progress
D = hybrid of --specials and --devices so all special and device files will be copied as well.
r = recursive (otherwise rsync won't copy files deeper than........
NEC ND-3500A is great!I just picked up an NEC 3500A a few weeks ago and I love it.
It is a great all in-one optical drive solution.
It can burn DVD/+R-R at up 16x, read at 16x and rewrite at 4x and CD-R at up to 48x!
Not bad, but the impotant part is that it delivers consistent high quality burns and the drive is as quiet as I could ask it to be.
It's also convenient that it has a lot of hacked firmware for overspeeding of........
This really is a difficult and confusing process for non-Mandarin speakers, but here's what I've done and learned so far:
You can purchase an "M-Zone" China Mobile pre-paid SIMCard from almost anywhere but I tried to purchase mine from Suning (a large electronics dealer) hoping they would be able to help me or answer my questions but my plan didn't work out at all. At Suning once I found someone who spoke some English they gave me the 55 RMB M-Zone China Mobile P........
As much of a computer nerd as Iam, I'm usually a late adopter to technology for a few reasons. Ifeel most new hyped technologies and electronics are mainly fads, and I'm also cheap.
Adopting later means you avoid the bugs, kinks and most importantly pay the lowest price, that's me being cheap again :)
