(Random notes relating to random discussions ...)


05 Feb 2013

Recent releases of Centos simply point to Red Hat for documentation - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/

RHEL 6 system setup - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Deployment_Guide/index.html - probably most useful for reference & details as necessary (not "memorize the whole thing" reading!)

Likewise, the RHEL 6 "installation guide" - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Installation_Guide/index.html - is useful when installing on one's own hardware - but is not entirely relevant when setting up on a VPS!

The RHEL 6 "security guide" - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Security_Guide/index.html

Linode provides some concise guides relating to their VPS systems - https://library.linode.com/security/basics and https://library.linode.com/securing-your-server

(a large part of the Linode documentation is specific to their VPS deployment system - https://library.linode.com/getting-started is a useful entry point if curious about how their system works).


(older random notes ...)

"the "erased state" for flash is when it is filled with all 1's."

tr '\000' '\377' < /dev/zero | dd bs=16384 of=/dev/r (d0c

from http://www.undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20100404103735


RE: issue of booting USB w/o BIOS support, please see http://mirror.slitaz.org/floppies/ You'd need an HD floppy disk for this.


quoting --------------

Floppy image set

This floppy set will boot a Slitaz stable version. You can write floppies with SliTaz bootfloppybox, Windows rawrite or simply dd:

  1. dd if=fd001.img of=/dev/fd0

If you have a CD-ROM, an USB port and an USB key or a network card, but you can't boot these devices directly, then try floppy-grub4dos [1] first. This 1.44Mb floppy provides tiny programs to boot these devices without BIOS support and some other tools.
