1 How to use ramdisk in
Ubuntu and Fedora?
In Fedora, the ramdisk is disabled by default, that is, it is compiled into
the kernel, but as a module, which will be loaded into the kernel when actually
used. So, it is necessary to compile the kernel manually to select the ramdisk
as the built-in modules.
In Ubuntu, the ramdisk support is enabled by default, so the steps are easier
compared to Fedora.
Using the following commands to list the ramdisk:
The output will be like:
|/dev/ram0 /dev/ram10 /dev/ram12 /dev/ram14 /dev/ram2|
/dev/ram4 /dev/ram6 /dev/ram8
|/dev/ram1 /dev/ram11 /dev/ram13 /dev/ram15 /dev/ram3|
/dev/ram5 /dev/ram7 /dev/ram9
Format the ramdisk as an ext4fs:
Then mount it:
|sudo mount /dev/ram1 /mnt|
2 How to enable ssh server
By default, Ubuntu doesn‘t install the ssh server, so the following command
|ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection|
Using the following command to install the ssh-server:
|sudo apt-get install openssh-server|
Then all things will go well.
3 How to disable CPU in
It is easy to do with real root user:
|echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/online|
The CPU status can be checked by:
To re-enable the CPU:
|echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/online|
4 How to disable SELinux in
The SELinux has some negative effect on the self-defined filesystem, so it is
necessary to disable it, using the following command:
will list the status of the SELinux,
|SELinux status: enabled|
|SELinuxfs mount: /sys/fs/selinux|
|SELinux root directory: /etc/selinux|
|Loaded policy name: targeted|
|Current mode: enforcing|
|Mode from config file: enforcing|
|Policy MLS status: enabled|
|Policy deny_unknown status: allowed|
|Max kernel policy version: 28|
To change the status of SELinux, modify the configure file in:
5 How to deal with the
errors in MP3 files in Rythmbox under Ubuntu?
The easiest way is as follows:
|sudo gedit /etc/profile|
Add the following two lines to the end of the file:
This enables the Chinese characters to be recoginized by the system.
6 How to accelerate the ssh
I am working on a project which has something to do with a remote server, and
I have to ssh to that server, but the server is Fedora and my os is Ubuntu, and
it turns out it takes a long time to resove the host/server IP, the solution to
this problem is:
|ssh -o GSSAPIAuthentication=no [email protected]|
7 When something goes wrong
in ubuntu ?
Afer a failed attempt to upgrade the Ubuntu13.10 to Ubuntu 14.04, the system
shows a popup window everytime the system boots, the title of the window is
"System Program Problem Detected". The following method can be used to solve
|sudo rm /var/crush/*|
This command will delete the crushed software of the system so that the
reporting utility won‘t work, thus eliminating the annoying message.
8 How to umount a
filesystem even when it is busy?
Recently, a project requires frequently mounting and testing a filesystem,
and it is very likely that the newly-mounted filesystem will crash for all
kinds of reasons, and after the accident, it is no longer possible to umount
the filesystem in a normal way. The error message from the OS is as follows:
With the -l option of umount, the result can be seen as follows:
9 How to sync files without
copying the originals when using Cloud Storage?
When using CloudDrive, it is likely that the software may only allow you to
synchronize the files or folders under a specific folder, if you have many
other directories to synchronize, you have to copy files, but there is a simple
way to achieve the same goal without copying files—the symbolic link.
Linux,the following command can be used to create a symbolic link to another
|ln -s target-folder link-name|
In windows, use the following command:
|mklink /J link-name target-folder|
10 How to rename multiple
files at a time?
- Add extention to all the files in a directory: \
for f in *;do mv "$f" "$f.png";done
- Rename: \
rename ‘s/old-name/new-name/‘ files
11 What is the most
amazing ssh option you have encountered?
The first useful option of ssh is the GSSAPIAuthentication=no, which
accelerates the connection startup time. Another useful option is the X11
forwarding, with the -X option, you can use the X11 application from the
localhost.(Especially for emacs).
12 When Ubuntu Xsession
The problem I encountered is like this:
When I want to logout the
xsession of ubuntu, it fails to close all the running application and return
back to the login screen, so I start a terminal by ALT+CRTL+F1, from which I did
a reboot. After the system booted, I typed my password to my account, but it
returned back to the login session again, and the process continued.
There was some error messages in ~/.xsession-error file, and the mode bits of
~/.xauthority file has changed to root only, so the correct way to deal with
the problem is use the following command:
|sudo chmod +x 777 .Xauthority|
