I'm a System architect & Linux admin for cloud.com (Citrix).

I've been working with Linux since right about when kernel 2.2 was released. I've bounced around several unixes, having brief stints with Solaris & FreeBSD, though I much prefer Linux.

I enjoy solving problems, and designing things. Both of which I'm able to exercise quite frequently working with Linux.


Outside of tech, I love flying kites (and partake in some kiteboarding), frisbee, and other outdoorsy activities. I love the warm weather, and thunderstorms, which is why I live in south Florida :-)

comment Opening files of size larger than RAM, no swap used.
Are you only concerned about how vi does this, or what all the ways of doing this are? There are a few different ways a file can be opened/modified without loading the entire thing.

comment Allow Linux to connect with addresses containing domains with dash followed by dot
You need to provide more info, such as what you're using to test. Is this a browser, some utility, what? That exact host name works perfectly fine on my system: i.imgur.com/FucBp8a.png

comment How to correct Linux file system permission?
I'm not entirely certain, but what is it you're saying doesn't have proper permissions? The filesystem device (/dev/sdX), the mount point (/mnt/foo), or the utils (/sbin/mount)?

comment Fail2ban consuming lot of bandwith
"The 60KB of bandwidth you're looking at is for network traffic that matched the failed event" -- not even that. Look at the rule that's matching. That's the final RETURN rule, which tells iptables to resume processing in the previous chain, and is used when the packet isn't blocked.

Sounds like you want logrotate. It's made for exactly this kind of stuff.

comment How to get whole command line from a process?
I do agree replacing \0 with ` ` to be bad, but I think tr '\0' '\n' < /proc/$foo/cmdline to be a bit simpler than xargs.

comment Executable directory? And chmod o+w changing the terminal directory color?
@jgr208 Again, op doesn't mention ANYTHING about what the directory is being used for. Nowhere does he say only root should have access. Claiming that setting it as executable is "a HUGE security risk" is exceptionally premature.

comment Executable directory? And chmod o+w changing the terminal directory color?
@jgr208 You are aware that directories have to have the executable bit set to be of any use correct? Are you also aware that /, /bin, and numerous other directories are globally executable? Are you also aware that when the op originally asked, he was also only setting the 'user' and 'group' bits, and not other?

@dani-h Your recent edit radically changes the question. It doesn't even match the title any more.

@jgr208 Where are you getting all this 'security risk' stuff from? Op doesn't mention anything about what this directory is being used for.
