Going to describe this entry a bit later, but in short "ubuntu server edition can't be plain installed on a server via serial console connection, but with custom made iso/cdrom, which is not always an option".
don't discuss this entry here, better go to bug-report URL and put your thoughts there.
Recently installed a new backup server with Bacula and connected to our SAN based on Brocade switches and HDS (DF700XS unit type, microprogram rev. 0781/A-X). We've never tested this HDS unit, but I was interested, so pasting results here.
I went to see The Queers last night in concert. It was a decent show, and TA80 was there from Tucson (a great bunch, BTW), as well as The Leftovers (from Maine; also a cool bunch).

Ohh and i forgot Google .
Hi Everybody, I am using our only serial port(/dev/ttyS0) for pppd. We are also getting console output through serial. So, to get things going I blocked getty in inittab. I am currently connecting my box via ssh and then i can run pppd, chat script etc.Can I have a setup so that I can give exlusive access of serial to pppd when it runs and when it exits it will unblock it?
Fedora-ARM 11 is now available!
Details: built for ARMv5 EABI, soft-float, little endian.
Currently there are packages from three yum groups: Base, Core and Web-Server.
A yum-enabled pre-built root filesystem is available along with instructions for working with known platforms (currently Qemu, Sheevaplug)
The Fedora/ARM architecture wiki page has more information:
We started of a blog for Fedora-ARM contributors. You can find the blog over here:
Currently we are in the F-11 bootstrap phase. Once that is done, expect to see some technical problems and probable solutions for new packages that we attempt to bootstrap on ARM.
I have installed OpenSolaris on my Core2 Duo E4600 with 1gb of RAM.
What i don't understand, why is it considerably slower in gui, than linux running on the same configuration?
Solaris runs gnome as the default WM, and linux - kde 4.2 from debian-unstable.
I am looking the source for U-boot-v2 bootloader for IMX27ADS target.
Can anybody help regarding this to start with??

Tech Source From Bohol: "I'm going to show you how you can smoothly hack a Windows Administrator password using Linux. You will only need a Live CD, and for this example, we will utilize Ubuntu. Also, I assume that you have the basic knowledge on using the Linux command line."
Brought Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter this week. My home ubuntu 8.10 recognised it and networked without any additional settings besides wireless security. Just to let you know.
I needed to recompile my code to test it against UML but it always complained about the unlock_kernel() function. The original code comes from subversity.net
So I decided to slightly modify the code to make it works for UML and x86. I did not have the chance to test it for other architectures.
A friend of mine would like to try to implement a new system call based on the example in Chapter 8 of Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide 2.6 Series (http://www.dirac.org/linux/writing/lkmpg/2.6/lkmpg-2.6.0.html) in Linux kernel 126.96.36.199. The example requires that the kernel exports `sys_call_table' symbol. Although Linux kernel 2.4.x, on which the guide is based, still exposes that symbol, Linux kernel 2.6.x does not do that anymore for it is harmful (e.g., it is unimaginable if a module replace the system call of `link' with `unlink' via the table). The guide comes with a patch to expose the table in Linux kernel 2.6.x. However, the patch does not work in particular for Linux kernel 188.8.131.52. So, I helped him to do so.
