My Linux Life

I was looking at my network setup at home over the weekend and one of the things I was looking at was my storage server. It’s a 1u server running window 2012 r2 [trial] that all my files reside on, it’s setup to use nic teaming and all in all is just a file server. […]

Debian NFS Server

I wanted to create a NFS share on my backup server so I can backup my storage server, I rsync stuff between the storage server and the backup box, instead of creating a samba share I just wanted to setup an NFS share instead, this is how I did it. This is on Debian Jessie […]

Centos 6.6 Network Bonding

When you run it, it complains about kernel modules and suggests you rerun a […]

Fedora 22 Rendering Issue

I’m using Fedora 22 Workstation on a Dell Latitude E6510 and It’s working fine, I’ve just got this wierd screen rendering issues. When you login, the ICONS are huge, both on the desktop and in the file manager, to me it looks horrible.     Luckily you can change them, you can view the file […]

Fedora 22

Yet another release from Fedora, this time it’s release 22, and while it works like a charm, I had 2 issues with it within the first five mins, while not a problem, then are still niggles. 1st – Wifi, still no iwlwifi.conf to stop the wifi led flashing when it’s connected to wifi. Luckily this […]
