I'm the Fedora Cloud Architect at Red Hat.

I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong.

comment Low sound volume on Lenovo laptop under Fedora
Yeah, it looks like the set-sink-volume approach is the best that can reasonably be done, and it doesn't address the real want. Oh well. I'll look into plugins and see what they might be able to do for me.

comment Low sound volume on Lenovo laptop under Fedora
"The only problem with it is if you turn it down, then you'll have to come back into the system preferences under the speaker icon to turn it back up to 150%." This is what I'd really like to avoid. What I want is for the speaker icon volume slider to be changed, either to have a higher maximum or to be permanently boosted.

@slm as long as I can put it somewhere it happens automatically and I don't ever have to think about it again :)

comment How to disable a daemon process on RHEL 6.3 like SMF does on Solaris
RHEL6 actually uses upstart as init, but doesn't take advantage of any features beyond sysvinit compatibility. RHEL7 will have systemd instead.

comment Can LXC be used to jail instances of an installed browser?
Not the same technology, but note that there's a SELinux policy in Fedora to contain Firedox in exactly this way.

comment Create a CentOS Guest img over Ubuntu
Yes, but note that only old versions. The newer version is focused on creating something called "supermin appliances" and is not generally useful.

comment How to reduce buffers\cache
You should fix your alerting software to monitor the actual thing that needs monitoring. Dropping buffers/cache is simply wasting performance.
