SATA on Linux

Some useful information about SATA on Linux. Particularly which chip sets give hardware RAID, and the difference between the IDE and SCSI versions of the SATA drivers.

Mambo or Big Medium?

I’ve been looking at using Big Medium for a company website for a while. Although I’ve never had the time to get it sorted. Recently I discovered Mambo. This looks quite good, although I prefer the structure of Big Medium for the job I need done.

Another thing to add to the to-do list.

Migrated my UML systems to UMLazi this evening while waiting at the office for an air plane to arrive. I must say is very clever use of bash scripts and a clean system design. I need to spend a bit more time understanding how the template system works, but it seems from the discussions on its website that the author has 100s of systems running with UMLazi.

Only a couple things I felt it was lacking. Still bash is easy enough to write. 😉

Installing Debian on Raid1

Instruction by Jorrit Waalboer for Installing Debian on a RAID 1 pair.

Nice clean method, seems to work without having to resort to a initrd image. Not sure sure about the use of swap on a RAID 1 device, although I guess it makes re-configuration very easy.
