Back Up Linux And Windows Systems With BackupPC

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxHowtoForge's Back Up Linux And Windows Systems With BackupPC is a tutorial which shows you how to backup Linux and Windows systems with BackupPC. You can backup and restore clients without interfering with the users work on that machine. On the clients minimal to no configuration is needed. BackupPC supports full and incremental backups, and it comes with a neat web frontend for the administrator and normal user so that backups and recoveries can be managed through a web browser. It should be noted, however, that BackupPC does file-based backups, not bit-wise backups like Ghost4Linux, for example, so it is not made for disk/partition imaging.

Create and Manage Virtual Machines Using VirtualBox

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxCreate and Manage Virtual Machines Using VirtualBox tells you about installing VirtualBox in Ubuntu, which bills itself as "the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU Public License (GPL)." (they are talking about the OSE Edition here). Features: VirtualBox runs on Windows and Linux 32-bit hosts and supports a large number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), and OpenBSD. Another virualizer? Great, choice is always good.

Quick tip: reinstalling grub to a partition

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxSo you have just installed the latest Linux (Ubuntu, Suse, whatever) distribution as the second operating system on your hard drive. You installed another os first (perhaps FreeBSD?), and everything is cool, except for the fact that the install CD you used, didn't ask, it just installed grub onto your MBR, so you can't easily boot into the first os anymore. That must also be fixed, but first you need to get grub onto your root partition instead of the MBR. If your root partition is hda2, you use

grub-install /dev/hda2
as root, or

sudo grub-install /dev/hda2
That was easy, wasn't it?
