Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Robert for this link. ]

"What's the best way to edit a .gif file in Linux?"

"The Linux world is full of good graphical-editing and image-manipulation programs. One is the excellent xv, a program that lets you read and write several image file formats, capture screenshots, and perform other basic image operations. Electric Eyes ships with GNOME, and this one is pretty sharp too. It handles file exporting and has some nice integrated tools...."

"I am running Linux on a four-processor box with a RAID controller. When I try to do a shutdown and reboot (shutdown -r -y 0), the system returns this:

                              Turning off swap & acct.
                                 unmounting file systems
                              Please stand by while
                                 rebooting the system
                              Stopping all nd devices
                              Restarting system
                              disabling symmetric IO mode....done

It never reboots. I'm worried that I won't be able to reboot remotely."
