Using CD/DVD Burners with Linux

Using mkisofs to create and burn CD/DVD images.

Installation
On CentOS:

yum install mkisofs cdrecord

Usage
http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Development/Computers/docs/user/cd-burner.html

mkisofs -J -l -R -r -T -V volid -allow-multidot -o filename path
  • volid - the volume id for the disk you will make. This is the label the disk will have when automatically mounted on some operating systems.
  • filename - where the filesystem image will be output. The file may be as large as 650MB (CD) or 4.7GB (DVD), so use scratch space if possible.

Technology:

vmware server install

Linux

cd /extra/src

Get the latest version of the server RPM from VMware's download page. At the time of writing, the latest version was 1.0.4:

wget http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmserver/VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.i386.rpm

Install the RPM:

rpm -ivh VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.i386.rpm

Configure the software for your running kernel:

/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl

Linux Agent

Download the latest agent from the OSC Inventory NG website:

mkdir -p /extra/src
cd /extra/src
wget http://superb-west.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/ocsinventory/OCSNG_LINUX_AGENT_1.01_with_require.tar.gz
tar zxvf OCSNG_LINUX_AGENT_1.01_with_require.tar.gz
cd OCSNG_LINUX_AGENT_1.01

The agent requires a variety of Perl modules. On a RedHat/Fedora distro, you might be able to install them with:

yum install perl-XML-Simple
yum install perl-Compress-Zlib
yum install perl-Net-IP
yum install perl-LWP
yum install perl-Digest-MD5
yum install perl-Net-SSLeay

CentOS

My preferred Linux operating system is CentOS, a derivative of the commercial RedHat Enterprise Linux. It gives a RedHat-style distro with stability and an active support community. CentOS is a much better choice for a server than a bleeding edge distro such as Fedora.

A nice distro to use for a server is CentOS. It's built upon Redhat Enterprise Linux so it provides a "Redhat" style distro while being stable and well-tested. A more "cutting-edge" distro such as Ubuntu or Fedora isn't stable enough for practical use as a server – too many updates being regularly pushed out.

Alternative - Scientific Linux

Operating System

The mail server is built upon the CentOS operating system, a free distro based upon RedHat Enterprise Linux.
