Yet another idea for a nfsroot pool …

Ok, seems I finally understood the magic around linux initrd.gz files. Basically, it provides a minimal rootfs with an optional /linuxrc executable. Using something like busybox (e.g. via ln -s /bin/busybox /bin/ash) that can even be a shell script. It should be possible to mount the nfsroot ro, create a tmpfs for unionfs changes and […]

NFS mess

I could not stop thinking of the NFS problems that arose while moving the home directory out of the Xen server, so I googled, tried something and restarted services and machines countless times.

Wiki with flat file backend …

So I wanted to set up another wiki. My first idea was Mediawiki, as apparently everyone seems to use it. However, as I know I will move most services to a new server I did not want to have to go through the hassle of moving the data in a database. I remembered some of […]

Short update …

Semester has started, and I am currently busy getting my stuff together for that. Luckily, the student computer pool is finally quite usable (only after I found one of those “one character bugs” in the nfs exports file of our /home server). This semester will be mainly about semantic web with me also visiting XML […]
