http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I loaded the Pre-Release version of Ubuntu 10.10.1 32 bit workstation. It ran mostly fine for about a 2 months.

Advanced Format 4k sector drive with LVMview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – So I finally bought an advanced format drive, the 2 TB Samsung f4. I will be using it on my slackware box, running slackware 12.2 with kernel 2.6.27-7. I intend to format the drive by hand with fdisk and start the first partition on sector 2048, or perhaps boot a livecd and format it with a newer version of fdisk or parted that will natively partition this drive correctly.

Reading encryption password with bashview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have two cryptsetup volumes with the same password that I want to open in a bash script, and I want to avoid writing the passphrase twice.
