    DHCP Server organization

    Interesting, because I can get it to include one file, but it is reading multiple files where I run into an issue. Like it tosses out the previous configurations and only uses the last loaded. I've got a virtual network with virtual machines set up to test things. I'm trying a different...

    Linux on 4mb ram

    doubt anything current will work, but debian sarge would work.

    Lost+found directory

    My experience is that you delete them they just come right back. Debian and ext4.

    cloud storage hosting with linux

    Debian with NextCloud software. I used it in a university setting for a long time before they switched to Google for everything, including google drive. Google drive used to be nice and easy, but now it seems to be to complicated for simple needs. NextCloud has client software for MacOS...

    DHCP Server organization

    I tried to use 'includes' in the dhcpd.conf but it doesn't seem to work. I thought it would be clever to have each subnet in its own .conf file: /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf /etc/dhcp/subnets/<network.conf> Then just have: include "/etc/dhcp/subnets/sub10.conf"; include...

    About This Linux

    Always wondered why someone hasn't written a mini-app or something to gather this sort of information. I don't know much about scripting myself. Just really basic stuff. Good suggestions above. Thanks.

    Linux mint installation problem

    So what is it doing? Does it boot from the USB or whatever media you're trying to use? Does it just give you blank screen at boot? Does it get anywhere during the install process? I've had a few installs where the GUI would not start up. Installed using the CLI and then loaded up the GUI...

    About This Linux

    A co-worker wrote the below script a long time ago and there are many things it can do, but obviously stumbles when it comes to detecting the hard drives because /dev/sd[a-z] is not as common as it once was. I'm curious if anyone wanted to improve upon this switch to work in more situations...
