Gentoo Linux 1.4 distro available

Gentoo Linux 1.4, available through the Distro Wizard. I “emerged” a Gentoo Linux 1.4 filesystem from stage 3, compiled and optimized for >= Pentium4 (Xeon). I will admit, it might be a little rough around the edges. Feedback would be appreciated. Gentoo Site: http://www.gentoo.org/         Enjoy! -Chris

Linode.com Version 1.0.45 – Resize Disk Image (also resizes ext2/3 filesystems automagically). Members Section –> Disk Images –> select a disk image. You can resize from there. A few notes… This will resize a disk image of ANY type (including RAW, swap, ext2, ext3), but it will only “expand” the filesystem if it’s labled as […]

Recent Updates

I made some modifications to the Distro Wizard. It now calculates and sets the default image size to (freespace-swap) rather than defaulting to 100 MB.

Single User Mode

Its useful for running fsck or repairs on disks, or trying to recover a broken system. The “single user mode” option can be set for each Configuration Profile. You could even […]
