Little things to remember

Up to six domains that should be appended to hostnames when resolving them can be defined in /etc/resolv.conf with the search entry (though not more than 255 characters). To bind a xen domain to another interface than the default (bridge), the /etc/xen/scripts/network script must be altered by hand. There is no configuration option for it, […]

Finishing a test with a nice barbecue in the buga

Today I had a test in discrete structures (lots of math … graphs, recursion, induction) which I asumed to be the hardest I had to take this semester. So after finishing the four pages of handwritten notes we were allowed to take with us (no calculator, no nothing but the pages) and having lunch I […]

Our setup was woking nice when we had only one entry for the diskless Gentoo installation in the config […]

The /umin servlet only allows to change the personal settings and searching through the official forums I only found ATFrogs. Unfortunately it does not have support for adding / editing users … o_O hmm seems like there is no good […]
