[help]Using Ssh, How To See Server Specification
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 22, 2004
I rented a dedicated RHL 9 Server from a webhost. I want to varify the server config, like
1. Which Processor, speed (host claims it is a p-4 2.0 ghz). How can I verify using SSH. I have root access.
2. which command tells me the disk space, RAM size, swap size?
3. how can I change swap memory size? Like if it is 512mb, how from ssh i could change it to 1GB?
4. How can I check if apache is installed or not? when I type rpm -qa apache it give me nothing.
5. I understand there are some packages that comes with RHL 9, like apache, php, mysql. How can I verify if those are up to date or not?
5. how can I uninstall the default apache/php or mysql installating and fresh install apache/php/mysql? I have a tutorail which tells me how to install them, but, i do not know how to uninstall default Red hat linux 9 instalation.
Thanks a lot guys.
(Solved) 32GB of RAM, Whats best way to optimize it for Linux.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2012
I have decided on purchasing 32GB of DDR3-1600 for my new system. Its going to be Corsair Vengeance 1.35v DRAM. Its going pretty cheap right now for around 100-120 bucks here in the US with tax and all. So I want to take advantage of the low pricing and since the new mobo has Quad Channel support. I wanted to find the best way to make the most use of the RAM. This is something I never tried before since I never had ram to spare.
Decided to go with just 16GB for my box, but still would love to here any optimization solutions that you do..
Tools to find Computer hardware specification in Ubuntu Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 29, 2010
Many times we are in need of knowing detailed Computer hardware configuration for various purposes such as to get right driver, debugging, to prepare system information report, etc. In linux many such tools are available in command line. Here I am trying to list down three tools which I know. They are hwinfo, lshw and dmidecode.
Here is the overview of all three tools: http://karuppuswamy.com/wordpress/20...tion-in-linux/

VLC Media Player, Brother HL2230 Laser Printer, and Mushkin 32GB Flash Drive ALL Not Working In ...
location: linux.com - date: February 23, 2014
I have a Dell Inspiron 580s desktop pc with Linux Mint 16 Cinammon installed as its only OS. I am totally confused and overwhelmed with hardware problems and the days of searching in vain everywhere I could. It has been especially frustrating and disappointing when I have literally copied lines of code again and again that were supposed to work - but failed to every single time!! Being a total newbie to running Linux as my OS hasn't helped either. Maybe I should put my tail between my legs, admit failure and defeat, wipe my entire 500GB SATA hdd clean again and reinstall Windows 7 64-bit again. Well, I will, BUT not before I see if some of you much more experienced members can at least help me solve even one of my problems. So, here goes, in the approximate order of relative urgency. Oh, and I almost forgot. My pc's CPU is an Intel Core i3 chip.
When I load a movie DVD into my CD/DVD +/- RW player, open VLC Media Player, click on "Media," "Open Disc," choose "D
Mount FAT32 PArtition bigger than 32GB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 9, 2004
this is my second day on linux so i'm still kind of stupid.
I'm using Mandrake 10 and XP on one machine and I want to mount a fresh formatted 72 GB FAT32 Partition under Linux. I'm using the DiskDrake Utility for this. I tried to format the Partition with fdisk from a boot disk and also with Partition Magic under Windows XP as FAT32, but in every case DiskDrake shows me the Partition as NTFS. I'm guessing that Windows adds some additional information which makes DiskDrake think that the partition is NTFS. Windows shows me the partition correctly as FAT32.
So I tried to delete the partition and created a FAT32 with DiskDrake. It worked fine, but under Windows my partition table seems to be fucked up, since the DiskManagement Tool shows me this partition twice and Partition Magic says that 2 partitions are overlapping.
Does anyone have a solution for this?
Thanks a lot.
Cannot Open 32GB Flash Drive
location: linux.com - date: February 25, 2014
I am running Linux Mint 16 Cinammon on my Dell Inspiron 580s Desktop PC. Recently, I obviously made a big mistake by downloading both Linux Bodhi 64-bit version and Puppy Linux on to the same drive. What I mean is that when I had to tried to open and view critical files I had backed up on it on Windows PCs, I had been getting more and more error messages about drive formatting errors. Even worse, it was showing the flash drive as having NO folders/files on it, and then showing all the files I had saved to it when I still went ahead and double-clicked to open it!?
Tonight I tried again to open the USB drive in Linux Mint 16, only to see the exact following lines in an error message window:
Unable to mount Bodhi Linux

Partitioning a dualboot laptop with 32GB SSD. Advice requested
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 13, 2013
I just bought an HP envy 6-1050ss. It's got a 500 GB disk + a 32 GB SSD. It comes with Windows 7 preinstalled (not 8, yay!), and I intend to keep it as a dual-boot, although my primary OS will be Kubuntu. I still depend on Windows for a few things. The current partitioning is as follows:
/dev/sda1 199 MiB name:SYSTEM (bootable)
/dev/sda2 446 GiB name:OS
/dev/sda3 19,47 GiB name:Recovery
/dev/sda4 108 MiB name:HP_TOOLS
/dev/sdb1 6 GiB allocated
/dev/sdb has 23,82 unassigned GiB.
From what I've seen, Windows is using just 6 GiB of the SSD as a hibernation partition. The rest goes unused.
I think I'd better not mess up with all the tools, recovery and system partitions, because I've had problems in the past moving these OEM setups; they tend to want the same things in the same place.
On the other hand, this 32GB SSD is screaming for a more optimal use. An SSD just for hibernation????
So, my plan right now is:
- move the Windows hibernation file to C:\ or create a new hiberna

tftpboot 64bit dual proc 32Gb RAM
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 19, 2006
I have a dual core 64bit xeon (4gb ram) that is going to tftpboot several dual proc, dual core, 64bit Xeons with 32Gigs of ram. I have done one tftpboot project before with Suse and it wasn't too bad, but that was with 2gig ram, single core, single proc.
I KNOW its not as easy as just the same setup. What am I going to have to face/change/etc... Should I be worried about extended memory mapping? Which distro would be the most strait forward ( I would like someone to say Suse or CentOS because thats what I've really worked with )??
I really just need a 64bit kernel and size isn't a huge issue because I have so much freaking memory, but I want to have my bases covered.
Please help me.
