Resource / tutorial for Linux Device Driver and Hardware Info
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 15, 2011
I usually required to troubleshoot the network card issue, USB connectivity issue, serial and parallel port communication, PCIe bus recognition and workings..most of time troubleshooting the hardware stuff.Though I use utlity like lspci, dmesg, mii-tool, ethtool etc..but I want to get depth into troubleshooting and understanding the Linux architecture.Say, I have a network card from Intel not working with RHEL 6.0, so all I can't see eth0 interface at all during the DHCP startup.All I do is loading the e1000 module or compiling the network driver to see if that works or not.
Any idea of Linux hardware reference/tutorial which can help me build a good fundamental on this. I am a Linux System Administrator and needs to improve my skills on Linux Device Driver troubleshooting.
Netstat Command Tutorial
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 11, 2012
The netstat command in Linux provides a lot of information about network activities and configuration on a system. It can display information on various network interface statistics. It can be used to check the network traffic, network sockets, listening ports etc. This command provides a huge output many times, so you need to filter the output to extract the content you are looking for.
[Tutorial] Boot Mac and PC into USB Linux!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 7, 2011
Nobody say this isn't possible because I will shoot you. After writing two somewhat-wrong guides, I have finally corrected my process. In this post is the instructions to create a linux USB drive and boot Ubuntu from it (and also refit on macs).
Step 1 - USB Linux
This is the step where we make a usb drive that we can run linux off of. In order to boot your usb drive, your pc bios must support it. Mac's bios (not the efi) doesn't support this, however mac users can use refit, which is discussed later.
Get yourself some of these:
A USB key (at least 1GB if you want to run Ubuntu)Fdisk (this comes with ubuntu, but not debian)grub-pc (this is also a default ubuntu package)The tools necessary to create fat filesystems (this comes with ubuntu but not debian)
1.1 - Formatting
This will delete all your USB data.
Firstly, unmount all partitions on your USB drive.
Open your terminal and:
fdisk <usb name>
Now you will be at the fdisk prompt, about to edit the p
Set time for 12 hour instead of 24 hour, in Lubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 26, 2011
The clock panel applet is set for the 24 hour but I want to set it for 12 hour. I can't stand it when I want to know what time it is and it shows 1300 (or whatever) instead of 1pm, so I have to sit there and count to figure out what time it is.
Is it possible to change the clock to display 12 hour am/pm time?
Linux Make tutorial
location: linux.com - date: October 30, 2010
I am looking for the Linux make command tutorial ( a video tutorial will be great, i search here in video tutorial but when type make in the search box gives something else where make word is type ) i have recently learn some basic programming of c language and using GCC for it.
Now i want to use the make tool for compiling and executing many files together. I have Google around and found the make file tutorials but too be honest i didn't understand from those :( and got confused.
It will be nice if someone of you know a good tutorial for a beginner to use Linux make files tool ( video one will be good ) so it can help in getting familiar with it.
Thank you :)
EASY tutorial for sending email to gmail account
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2011
Ok so after about 18 hours non stop reading tutorials online I finally decided to post online for help.
Here is my situation:
I need to setup email service in ubuntu server edition that uses my gmail account to send email (actually I don't care how I send email as long as it goes to ANY external email account on the internet) all I need is to send email not recieve email.
The reason I need this is so I can create an perl script to send an email to my phone when someone connects to my VNC repeater.
I looked at hundreds of tutorials on how to setup CA certificate and how to relay emails etc.. NONE WORK!!!!
I'm new to Ubuntu, Ive been using it for 3 months now (even though I grew up on mac) and desperatly need help!
I setup everything else with no problem (vnc repeater, apache, ftp, bind) but I can't get mail to work
I've tried postfix,sendmail,qmail, etc probably 6 different mail servers with no avail.
Please Help and give me a noob tutorial (step by step) on how to send

Hello all !!!
This is just New Tutorial Stuff coming up from ME !!!
Tutorial – How to "Mount"/"Umount" Partitions in Ubuntu:
Every now & then, we see people asking questions in this Forum, on how to access other Partitions, regardless of whether they are Windows Partitions or Linux Partitions or Other.
This Tutorial's main target is to teach you HOW to mount/unmount (create access/remove access), to any (Hard Drive) Partition you connect to your Ubuntu.
It is Required that you connect your (Hard Drive) Partition, before you Boot your Ubuntu, unless your (Hard Drive) Partition is connected to your Ubuntu through USB.
So, here it goes:
Part 1 – Mounting Partitions (auto mount mode):
The file named "fstab", is a file where ALL your Ubuntu's "mount" options are listed.
The "fstab" file is the automatic way to "mount" File Systems.
They are "mounted" at Log on & "un

[Tutorial] Wizard101 on Ubuntu Detailed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 14, 2010
Welcome to my first tutorial on Ubuntu forums. In this wonderful tutorial (lol) I will be showing you how to run and install Wizard 101 perfectly, with no problems. Wizard 101 is a Windows based game, not a Linux or Macintosh game. Why? Well programming on a Windows operating system is easier than Linux and/or Mac. Also, the majority of the world is Windows based. However, Linux has a secret weapon called Wine! Wine basically allows you to enjoy Windows applications/games on your Linux operating system, perfectly (sometimes). Lets get started on installing Wine and setting up Wizard101!
Note: You will be asked to enter your "root" password, in order to install Wine.
1. Installing Wine - Install Wine first.
sudo apt-get install wine wine-utils
2. Configuring Wine - Do this after installing Wine.
Make your configuration of W
HOWTO set up a Hauppauge HVR950Q on myth .24 and mythbuntu 10.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 30, 2010
This is how I set up my Hauppauge HVR-950Q so that I can watch and record live tv on myth .24. I don't cover how to set up a remote or storage groups, etc. This set up works for me, but YMMV.
If you have mythbuntu 10.10, I'm going to assume you have pulseaudio installed. You should also install the helper utilities:
sudo aptitude install pavucontrol paprefs pavumeter
If you are going to use remote frontends, you need to set up your backend box so that it has a fixed address on your network.
If you live in the US or Canada, I strongly suggest that you pay the $20 (US) and get a one-year subscription to Schedules Direct. It's by far the easiest way to get programming information for the analog channels on the card, and I use it to get programming information for the digital channels as well (for reasons detailed below).
I installed mousepad as my text editor on mythbuntu. You can use whatever you're comfortable with.
