I'm trying to setup a secondary log rotation mechanism on on of my
Right now, the system is setup to rotate logs on a weekly basis.
In addition to the weekly log rotation, I also need to take hourly snapshots
(i.e. just the deltas between snapshots).
As part of this process, I can not delete the original file since that is
being handled by the weekly log rotation and archival process.
These files get pretty big, so IO and CPU are both concerns.
Ok....so it isn't a Linux question, but...
In a couple of weeks, I'm going to be building a jumpstart server at
work. Can someone point me to the docs for this? I went to the SUN
website and found a 240 page pdf file about setting up a jumpstart
server. It was REALLY hard to follow. Any help would be appreciated.

It looks like I have straightened out emailing my signed keys via caff.
You should be seeing all of my emails coming through momentarily. Sorry
for my tardiness but I couldn't figure out why ssmtp wouldn't work. If
you don't see anything in the next hour please email me off list and
I'll just send you your key directly.
I'm not sure what I am talking about. I know that the terminal for my SUN ULTRA1 is different than the terminal for my DELL PC.
I have purchased a IOGEAR KVM switch. I would like to include the SUN machine in the set of computers that can share my one keyboard, mouse and terminal.
What do I order which will make this possible?

Hi guys, the company I work for is hiring a summer intern with Linux
experience and interest in network and VoIP engineering. We're a small
startup in the Worcester area, near 290 and the Pike. Experience with
*any* of the following is great: Red Hat/CentOS, Asterisk, Python, PHP,
networking, firewalls, and VPNs.
Feel free to hit me up with questions or resumes. I don't know what
computer/*NIX mailing lists at WPI are popular, but a forward would
be cool, too. Thanks much.

Early Bird Registration Deadline: June 1, 2009
I reformatted my server and installed CentOS, but somehow I've fscked things up. I have a heterogeneous network that is about 40% winxp, 40% amigaos/morphos, and this server. In addition to the web stuff, I've considered making it a PDC for the win machines, but that's maybe just a dream. For a few days I could reach it, but now I can't, and from the server itself localhost doesn't seem to be working. It would take someone more familiar with linux minutes to straighten things out probably, but I just don't have a lot of time. I live in Sutton, about 10 miles from Worcester down Rt 146. I'm usually around Sat afternoons or Sundays, and usually have food and beer around, but not a lot of money. Maybe we can barter :) I do web stuff and windows system and network admin, plus some software development at Clark Univ.

Thanks, everyone. I have learned allot.
I have eight computers in my home office. One is a SUN ULTRA 1, the rest are various makes and models of PC desktop machines. On these I have Windows plus Linux (Aurora and Red Hat Fedora. Why do I have these machines? That's what my wife asks. Maybe in my dotage I have become victim to a hoarding syndrome
I am trying to get organized so I purchased a "IOGEAR 8-Port KVM Switch Kit, PS/2,with KVM Cables (GCS78KIT)" from amazon.com. They gave me free shipping and handling.
My conclusion after reading this thread is that I need one "13W3-to-VGA" adapter to connect the ULTRA to the KVM switch. Stephen Thamel has one available.
Have I got it all straight?
