Outlining Thin Linux

xming Alpine Linux (221 comments)

I used to use Gentoo minimal installs but recently discovered Alpine Linux (http://alpinelinux.org/) which is even better.

xming tunnel TCP/IP in mails (334 comments)

Use some livecCD or Alpine Linux to create your own CD, and tunnel IP in mails for the fun :D If the latency is less than the TCP time-out you might even get a decent ssh connection.

Linux 3.17-rc2 Release Marks 23 Years of the Linux Kernel

xming Re:Poll idea (106 comments)

22 years give or take, started with SLS, can't remember which version probably older than this one ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/hist... as I can vaguely remember kernel 0.97 but SLS 1.03 has kernel 0.98pl.

FWIW this is the first Linux distro (there are earlier versions but I didn't bother to search) ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/hist...

And the place to get your kernel was ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/linux/

Windows 8 Features With Linux Antecedents

xming Re:"Linux Command Line Tirckery" HA! (642 comments)

Your Linux seems really easy, I usually have to do mkdir -p /mnt/iso && modprobe loop && mount -o loop /this/is/really/a/long/path/LiveCD-2012.iso /mnt/iso But mine is one line shorter :p

Linux Kernel 2.6.32 Released

xming kvm and ksm (195 comments)

kvm (with a little patch) supports it, running it right now with 5 guests and have 53K pages which are shared. # cat /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_sharing 53714 That's ~200MB for about 1,5GB memory used on the host. Now I can't figured out how many times those pages are shared, so I can't calculated the actual memory saved (it's between 200MB and 4x200MB).
