Do I have misunderstood something?/Help needed!
location: linux.com - date: October 13, 2012
OK, so there is the Linux kernel, being updated regularly (so far so good).
On top of it every Linux distribution is built, being updated to the most recent kernel, too.
But, when someone wants to port a specific linux distro, what does he do?
He cross-compiles the kernel (that ends in .tar.bz2) after he implements any patch?
Here is my situation. I need to understand the process.
I see for example that for this board(arm architecture) an open embedded kernel has been built, but I also see that 2 supported distros for this board have different kernel.IMGs, as well as different (extra files, what I mentioned in the second sentence, which I don't know how it is called). If a developer wanted to port an other distro, would he use the preexcistent kernel.img and do "some magic tricks" with the rest of the files, put them on a SD and then his board would boot (with a lot of bugs waiting to be fixed), or would he need to: take the latest kernel source, apply the patches,
Linux HA cluster help needed
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2004
I am an applications developer, not exactly a Linux "newbie," but don't spend most of my time at the $ or # prompt. I have "inherited" a Linux HA cluster - two servers running RedHat Enterprise, each with two NICS (there is a dedicated gigabit connection between the servers, and each server is on the network). Heartbeat and drbd are running on each. So one is primary, the other secondary. It looks to me like most of the work has been done on these servers, but since I took them over without benefit of talking to the person that left them (he passed away), I'm just not sure what might be missing! I've seen one or two articles on Linux HA using heartbeat and drbd, but would like some more in-depth reading or assistance. Are the drbd man pages my best bet? Can anyone point me in a helpful direction?

Help needed regarding samba file/directory permissions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 10, 2012
Hi I have set up a samba file share on Ubuntu Server 11.10 x64, and have assigned various users with group 'users' access to it. I have set the default file/directory creation masks to 770, and have verified the permissions of created files/directories (i.e. in Windows: New > Text Document in the context menu) to be 770 in the share.
However, when users perform a file copy, i.e. drag and drop, the files/directories inherited a 755 permission. This resulted in User A not being able to write to files created by User B under the same group 'users'. I have tried other smb.conf parameters like "force (directory) security mode = 770" and "force create mode = 0770" to no effect.
As I understand, this could be due to source file/directory permissions being transferred over too during a "drag-and-drop" copy. However, aren't the 'force' parameters supposed to mask those permissions? For now I can only think of implementing a cron job to manually chmod -R 770 th
Mass Ubuntu Deployment Help Needed from Experienced Sys Admis
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 30, 2011
I have to make a mass ubuntu deployment at work, and words like clonezilla, FAI, puppet, cfengine, pxe, oem are all dancing around my head
The hardware clients will be desktops, HP and IBM.
Computers have to authenticate with the windows ad via likewise open.
If I clone a computer with certain user configurations, once I deploy the clone in the client and log in with the new user, then all configs are gone, as most of them are user specific (for example, several thunderbird add-ons carefully configure to work with MS exchange). And also, because of the likewise open authentication, I have to make sure that the client gets a new hostname, authenticates with AD, etc.
Question is: which of the above tools would be better for what I need, and which (or combination of) can make the whole process all as unattended as possible?
Thanks in advance!

linux header kernel problems help needed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 16, 2011
Asking same question from my earlier post...
I seem cannot install anything due to kernel problems, tried to install vmware but it returns an error that it cannot find linux headers 126.96.36.199-x1-64 after looking at the net nothing helps so I gave up on it and went for virtualbox but now I have same problem! When trying to load it after installation... it returns an error that it cannot find same kernel at the source!
It seems that this kernel is missing or I dont know what is the problem because when typing in uname -r it returns correct kernel version is used!
Thanks in advance
