Full system encryption for Linux (yes, even the kernel)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2009
I wasn't sure where to stick this one, but the Cafe is pretty open. If moderators feel it fits better somewhere else, by all means move it wherever you want
The concept is simple, the work is fairly complicated and involved, but there are screenshots and general (very looong) directions on the page.
Basically what I did is modify an existing encrypted Ubuntu setup such that the kernel and all files in /boot are part of the main encrypted filesystem instead of a separate unencrypted /boot partition, by using a set of patches to the GRUB2 bootloader that support luks encryption directly. When grub boots it can find the luks partition, ask you for a password and load the kernel. From there it boots like normal.
There will no longer be an unencrypted kernel or initrd anywhere on the system, all that remains unencrypted is the MBR, and around 60KB of grub2 bootloader code. Functionally this makes the system similar to how Tr
After installing linux mint, all I get is a black screen after login
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 14, 2009
I'm a newbie to this so sorry if I'm asking a simple question.
Ok so I installed Linux Mint v7 (64bit) on my desktop (Nividia GeForce 9800GT 512mb, AMD Phenom x4 9550...2.2Ghz quad core, 1.25TB of disk space, 4GB of RAM). I completely installed it, it restarted I ran it and logged in and than it went to a black screen where I could only see my pointer. I restarted ran recovery mode, made sure there weren't any broken packets and tried again...it didn't work.
What do I need to do for this to work?
What is Linux MCE all about?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 25, 2007
Whats the deal with this. I saw some pretty impressive videos of it on Google Video but the site keeps timing out. Is there anywhere else I can find info on it? Like how does it turn on your TV, dim your lights, etc ,etc. And can I put Linux programs on it and use them. Like, for example, can I put ZSNES on it so I can play Super Nintendo games?
Any help would be appreciated.
LXer: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5: All about Xen
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2007
Published at LXer:
Experts, users and authors agree: When Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 launches in February, it will succeed or fail on the merits of Xen. Forget the FUD, said Andy Hudson, a RHEL5 beta tester and author of Fedora Core 6 Unleashed living in the U.K. Forget the deep support discounts offered by Oracle for its Unbreakable Linux, and definitely forget about the claims coming from the Microsoft-Novell camp about interoperability. They're all moot points.

Hey, I'm writing a program in Python that aims to make Linux easier, and cross all distribution boundaries. I don't really care if Automatix or EasyUbutnu has already done this, or already done that, since I tried both, and both resulted in me needing clean installs of Ubuntu.
As the thread title implies, feel free to do w/e to me on this thread (laugh, boo, etc.) but really I started it to get some constructive feedback and help. I'm going to finish this project, so don't tell me to stop or "Why are you doing this at all?". Also, I respectfully ask you to keep "Automatix [or EasyUbuntu] rules!" or "Nobody need this!" type comments to a minimum. Thank you.
Seeing as this thread is so long, if you have a suggesti
Why does KDE and Linux have all these package programs
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 11, 2007
I'm trying out Mepis v6.5.02 with KDE 3.5. I'm confused about all these different package programs. There's Synaptic, Kpackage, apt-get , tarballs, debs, rpm, source code, etc. I'm confused by all this and don't understand the need for such complexity. Plus, with Synaptic I wanted to download gkdial which said it was 43k but when I started downloading it said it needed 48 megs and would take 4 1/2 hours to complete. Could someone explain how all this works? Thanks.

Linux find all mounted CDROMs from C code
location: linuxexchange.com - date: May 11, 2014
I need to write function in C language on Linux which accesses all mounted CDROMs and performs some action.
I can do it on BSD using
count = getmntinfo(&buf, 0);
And looping on all devices and checking
buf[i].f_type == 17
Is any way to do the same on Linux?
Linux Forward all the syslog
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 14, 2015
I am working on a solution that can forward all the system events via certain UDP port to a server as they happen on a Red Hat Linux box.
a) Is it possible to do this with a bash script, if so what would be the logic ?
b) What would be the best technology/app to use for this purpose ?
