understand how Linux deals with devices
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2013
I am trying to better understand how Linux deals with devices. To start, I am trying to identify the device that I am using by looking at /var/log/messages and plugging in a USB. Is this the best way to do so? What if I had two hard drives; how would I tell one from the other?
I often see some gibberish related to usb 1-1.4: Product: USB Optical Mouse. I am thinking this is totally unrelated, right?
I then disconnect the USB memory stick and see usb 3-2: USB disconnect, device number 2. What does usb 3-2 and device number 2 tell me?
I then plug it in and see usb 3-2: new high speed USB device number 3 using xhci_hcd. Same usb 3-2, but now I see device number 3. Why the different device number?
I then see some messages related to scsi, and finally see sdf1. Okay, is this how I know my device is /dev/sdf1?
What next topics are import to this subject. I am thinking they are mount, fstab, and fdisk. Any others? Any recommended tutorials?
Sorry for the scattered
How Kubuntu Dapper with separate /home partition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2007
I am reinstalling Kubuntu Dapper after installing a new drive. I want to install it on the old drive, and while at it, thought I might use a separate partition for /home as suggested in lots of places. The only problem is, I've seen the "how to" posts, but can't find one now that I need it.
Can anybody provide a link to a post on how to install with a separate /home partition?

How benchmark server with load balancer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 12, 2012
Hey I have four computers(with linux):
-two with mediawiki(mirror, both connected to one db)
-one with mysql
-one server(DHCP,DNS etc)
I configured on my server load balancer and now hen I type in browser name.local for example I get one of my mediawiki servers. I press f5 really fast and then I see in top command both computers are being loaded but not much. I used tool ab (apache benchamrk) but if I run it always is connected to one server never alternately.
I use this settings:

Installing Windows XP after installing Slackware 13.37 | How to work with the MBR
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2012
I'm having trouble installing XP due to the fact lilo is wrote to the MBR already, I've partitioned my hard drive with fdisk:
Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000088a2
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 2048 1048578047 524288000 83 Linux
/dev/sdb2 1048578048 1384122367 167772160 83 Linux
/dev/sdb3 * 1384122368 1698695167 157286400 7 HPFS/NTF/exFAT
also sdb3 contains the NTFS filesystem (via mkntfs)
The problem is, as many of you know, Windows wants to write to the MBR first. I don't need to hear it's
easier to re-install, I need a solution. Any and all help will be appreciated.

How to sftp with filezilla with RSA/PUB key set in sshd
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 23, 2012
I have set my server, ssh connection can only be done via pub/rsa key.
I am trying to set an sftp connection on the server and users will be using filezilla to connect to it. Sadly, I cannot seem to find a way to set it.
I have tried to add the key in filezilla edit -> settings -> sftp but it say the format of the key is not recognized by filezilla and ask to convert it, if I do so, it wont then connect to the server.
Anyone knows of a good tuto to set Ubuntu -> Filezilla -> SFTP -> Ubuntu server with key logging only
