I'm testing web hosting control panel inside virtual machine. The operating system I chose is Linux and the distribution is Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon. Yes, I know it is still in alpha but it is going to be stable within 2 months. Since I quickly installed this machine from server CD, I accidentally chose incorrect keyboard layout. That's why I would like to change it right now.
This is my first task. I would like to run VMware under Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon. Unfortunately, it seems like VMware doesn't support the latest kernel, 2.6.22-9, yet. As a result, I got below error messages.

Yesterday, I upgraded my laptop which formerly was Ubuntu Feisty Fawn to Gutsy Gibbon Alpha release. Yes, it is still an alpha release and actually I just upgraded to the most up-to-date version. In other words, I didn't upgrading through CD image, instead, I downloaded all fresh packages from public archive site.
sudo is a must to have in all Unix host to prevent wide-spread of root account. It also has built-in security checking by time. However, sometimes this feature might annoy sudo to stop working after adjusting date/time back from the future.

To solve this problem, I have a clue.
Sometimes you may want to classify web traffic per user, not IP-based classification, in Squid. Squid supports this mechanism via external authentication plugin. The most common one is NCSA authentication but a flexible one is PAM since it is possible to use LDAP backend as well as unsecured
For all fans of text-based BitTorrent client like BTQueue, I am still working on it everyday. As of now, its core engine has been changed to offer more features and the latest core is BitTorrent 5.0.8. Anyway, I can't release this new one because of some big problem regarding weird memory usage. By the way, it is usable for use but not for long run.
