comment How to mount/recover data on a disk that was part of a mdadm raid 1 on another machine?
The problem is that the partition thinks it has some raid volume on it and not an ext4fs. And the kernel is right. However as it was a raid 1 it happens to be an ext4fs. a mount -f ext4 /dev/sdc1 /mountpoint should do the trick. To force mount to assume ext4 instead of looking for a file system is what -f does

comment How to run two virtual X11 screens on a single monitor?
@noffle: yes, WMs have some special characteristics. They still work on the one X display that X creates, even though they can be aware of the physical screens

comment snmp issue:Two similar sever returning different output
Apparently one server has that MIB installed, the other doesn't. Try comparing the installed softwarepackages on both of them. It is likely one of them has more and/or different packages installed.

comment How to run two virtual X11 screens on a single monitor?
Let me rephrase: WHY do you want to do that? Usually, X11 creates one unified display out of many physical screens. If you first fake your 1 screen to be actually 2, X will take them and make one out of them. So, what is the actual goal?

That depends on what you want to emulate or what you want to do/test/proove with your emulated environment. X has quite some abstraction going on before actual screens become (X-) screens and even more before they become (the visible part of) your working area

comment Redirect Packets from ppp0 interface to ethernet interface in linux
I think yes, but still need more information. Edit your question to include the entire setup: the internet, the box you want openflow on, the other box(es?) that generate flows. Is that a real research project?

comment Creating linux distro for use during exam
If you encrypt the root FS you would have to walk from student to student and type the password very often for many people to see. Not very safe but I think viable for exams with only few students. You need to spend some seconds to be sure it's not a virtual machine. I'd guess you need 30-40 seconds per student. What keeps students from rebooting into their own OS, if they have all the software installed? You need something to ensure they use Exam OS only. I have an idea for 7 and 8 :)

comment Redirect Packets from ppp0 interface to ethernet interface in linux
Yes, a tunnel is always between two endpoints. If you do not want to connect two endpoints then what do you want to do with "another virtual interface (Ethernet type not ppp type)". What is wrong with your ppp0 device that you do not want to use it?
