How does the 'swap' drive actually work????
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2008
I was wondering about the Linux swap partition drive.
So, it uses hard drive space as memory. Does this mean that if I had a 100GB hard drive and used 90GB for swap, that this computer will run decently fast???

Linux in the workplace... how does it work?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2013
I have some basic linux knowledge but I'd like to know how linux is implemented in a multi-user networked environment like a workplace. For example...
Say you have 50 linux workstations, 60 users, 3 Servers (file, cups, dns, dhcp, mail, whatever). Microsoft uses Active Directory to authenticate users, group policy etc. What does linux use? How do users going from pc to pc log into the system? Do all users have a user account on the server and they do a remote login to the server? Are all users home directorys on the server?
Also how is linux most used in a business? For example, if all the clients run Windows (which surely is more often the case), is linux mainly used as a web server? Or is Windows Server sometimes replaced soley by linux? I guess I would like to know some typical arrangements of how linux is used in the corporate world. Who uses it? How do they use it? etc.
Thanks in advance.
How does Wine work and how do I MAKE it work?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2004
Hello, I'm an extremely new Linux user. (I just started using for the first time yesterday)
I'm running SuSE 9.0 Professional, and all seems well so far...except for the tremendously frustrating and confusing installation (I'm SOOO glad that part's over!).
Anyway, I've been using MS Windows ME for a long time, and I've come to rely on a few programs that I know their aren't any Linux equivelents to. In particular, Game Maker 5.2.
I hear there is this thing called "Wine" that's supposed to emulate Win/DOS programs on Linux, but I don't where it is, how to install, or how to configure it.
I was hoping that somebody here could help guide me through it...please.

How does Linux store thumbnails ?
location: linux.com - date: February 6, 2010
I recently noticed that KDE creates a .diretory file to probably store info about thumbnails and other stuff and Gnome does store thumbnails in a centralised directory.
Can anyone elaborate this difference in more detail and compare the benefits and drawbacks of each approach?
[SOLVED] How does heartbeat work?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 16, 2010
I am trying to figure out ho to setup EC2 clustering. I am seeing heartbeat as an option. However I need something that will monitor the state of a daemon, and not if a daemon is running.
For example, say I want httpd to be high availability. Does heartbeat monitor if httpd is not in a hung state, or does it simply do a ps -e |grep httpd? So my question is, how does heartbeat work?
Any information would be greatly appriciated. Thanks
How does Linux desktop external media mount works?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 15, 2011
I notice that in newer distros, external media (USB sticks, external disks, CDROMs) are mounted automatically. How does this work, exactly? I tried to hunt it down to no avail. The reason is this: I recently installed Debian 6 on my laptop, which is fine. But one annoying thing is that the first usb media inserted to the computer will always mount as /media/usb0 , no longer /media/<disklabel> .
Now you may argue that disk label can contain spaces and thus is bad for scripts, but at least it can be consistent. I want to know the following: which program or configuration files determines the mount point name and mount option?
Here's the result of my hunt-down so far (for new enough linux distros):
* udisks (the replacement of HAL) is responsible for dispatching device plug/unplug event so that it is mounted properly. Apparently this is done via d-bus.
* gvfs (under GNOME desktop) seems to be responsible for mounting or dismounting the disk.
But that's the farthest
