We passed another million milestone at 09:23:32, when probably soon to be banned fighting Finn seba clicked on our 13M'th pageview.

12M happened sometime during October, but I wasn't around to scour the logs, so we can't see whether or not we're doing any higher volume than ever. I DO know that the board seems to be getting slower all the time, but that *might* just be because I'm actually accessing it during daylight hours now. We may soon have news on THIS front - stay tuned!

Proof that not even the admins look at the announcements.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

1. Given our recent luck with shipments, I ain't banking on ANYTHING until I actually see it.

2. Although I DID read the announcement, I never would have known there's a new one if all I ever clicked on the front page were the chevrons...something for us to think about (not very hard, tho')

On a completely unrelated note, I totally dig this month's logo.

Excuse my ignorance but where's it 'borrowed' from this time?

At first, I thought it was a logo for the Etnies shoe company turned on its side, but after searching, I'm wrong.


EDIT: It worked on the initial preview...anyway a picture of it can be found HERE

EDIT 2: The French suck.

EDIT 3: Maybe it'll work here: check the very bottom of the page (chez.com)

The server is in my office at work now. It's got the correct number of HD, processors, and amount of RAM. It even boots.

Now I just have to figure out how to get an IDE CD-ROM hooked up to it so that I can put an OS on this bad boy.

Muhahaha.

Whaddya need a CD-ROM drive on that machine for?

At worst, floppy boot it, but most modern nics are tftpboot-compatible, so installing off a CD-ROM mounted on a local machine should be easily doable, for the cost of RTFM and setting up a couple of temporary services on a local linux box :)

The logo, the message, and CRZ's occasional shilling makes one thing that perhaps the CRZblog really is coming to pass.

Now we can know what Zed thinks about the latest Kraftwerk track almost as soon as he does. My knowledge of German techno will surely skyrocket.

No such luck at work, where it currently lives. I could either set up a RIS server and do it in Windows, or go with my second option...

I'm brining in a Knoppix CD and a cross-over cable. I think I've got the instructions from there - but I've never done PXE boot before.

No floppy in it either. The CD and Floppy connectors on the Mobo are placed such that I would have to remove just about every screw in the case to get to it.

On the plus side, this case is bulletproof.

If you were going to stick with Debian, there's rather extensive netboot instructions in the install guide.

It's mostly a matter of picking a protocol, setting up an appropriate server, and making sure the files is where the files need to be.

Knoppix is debian though, or so I thought. Can't I just start there and apt-get update apt-get upgrade?

Yes, you are all fascinated by this very important non-chat.

Oh right, Knoppix is Debian. But a Knoppix CD doesn't really buy you anything -- you're still going to have to do the same thing, i.e. set up a TFTP and a DHCP server (or, technically, BOOTP or RARP), create a tftpboot directory, and move appropriate files into it. If you are intending to install Debian, I'd check the install manual for what files need to be there (do a search for "PXE").

The machine boots to the NIC, sends out a DHCP request which is answered by the machine at the other end of the crossover cable. The server's configuration will tell it to serve the bootloader to the client. That bootloader fires up a kernel, mounts an image of a minimal system into a RAMdisk, and you're off to the races as if you'd booted from floppy.

So you've got to set up dhcpd and tftpd on the existing box and then you can get NFS set up (easy enough) for the install or do an ftp install.

Here's hoping you've got reasonably standard hardware ;)

...I should really take this to PM but it's so educational.

So I was looking at this http://www.kegel.com/linux/pxe.html and I thought that I could just run the Knoppix CD on my laptop, put a crossover cable to the Intel NIC, and then boot the server. I'm hoping that the PXE stuff is turned on automatically - it seems like that's what the article says.

Now, whether or not this actually works with the 3ware SATA RAID controllers or not - that's another story.
