g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ ## An easy way to create a new blank file in your current directory is with the touch command.

g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ touch name_of_blank_file
g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ ls
name_of_blank_file

g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ ## Or with an editor like nano

g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ nano doc1
g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ ## nano will open with a blank file called doc1 write your stuff and save file. control o and return to save. control x to exit. then y or n to save or not if you have not already saved the file.
g5@debian1333:~/lessons$## to read any manuals type man then the name of the programme.
g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ man nano


g5@debian1333:~/lessons$ ls
doc1 name_of_blank_file

Here is an issue that sounds simple but is in fact quite complicated. If you have a HDD with say 6-7 NTFS partitions and you connect it to Debian it is mounted automatically and most likely the partitions will be mounted to /media/disk-# where # is a number (1,2,3,4...). Now every time you connect your HDD to your computer it mounts under different mount points. For example you have 3 partitions 30,60 and 90 GB ones. 1st mount they are in the order disk-1 disk-2 disk-3 respectively. Next time they are in another order i.e. the 30 Gb is now mounted to disk-2 the 60 Gb to disk-3 and the 90 to disk-1. It is a bit irritating but when you have a program that relies on constant pathnames it becomes a problem. The only solution I've found is to connect the HDD to a Windows computer and name the partitions. Placing a line in fstab doesn't work because only the root can mount and the ntfs-3g driver doesn't accept the users or user options in fstab. I think a howto will be very useful not only for me.

PS I have solved it for myself - used a Windows computer. I've seen a lot of people on the net have stumbled upon this issue and I haven't found a descent solution so far.

Anyone got a good howto on setting up an SSL CA? Preferably one that goes into the theory behind SSL a bit. I need it for my LDAP for the Lazy Sysadmin howto and don't really want to write it myself.

No need for a Howto. Just use labels instead of device names in /etc/fstab

Firewire stack

Postby boz » 2008-08-28 23:00

From reading bug reports and such this may be unpossible, but any information anyone can provide on getting firewire working under Lenny would be awesome.

Hi,

I'm Noodles. I just started using Debian. but I'm a little bit lost. I want to use Debian for a source dedicated server. but I can't get it set up. If anybody here has a Source dedicated server. Can he or she write a howto?

Greetings from Noodles

I'm posting a request for a how to optimize debian for laptop usage.

Seems this request has already been posted here in Laptop fine tuning but has had no answer yet.
Also most of the guides I have found are incomplete and infos are scattered around and sometimes obsolete or even contraddicting one another.

The rationale behind is that the debian ability to run on almost any system is great but not fitted for laptop specific usage such as optimizing battery time (famd, absence of noatime, ...) and having up-to-date info all in one place would save a lot of time.

A superficial search at google.com/linux gave me this:

This is a starting point: Linux Internet Web Server and Domain Configuration Tutorial. Please note that it is not debian specific.
