MVS. ./var/. The dependencies system is a good mechanism for guaranteeing the operation of a program, but it has another use with“meta-packages”. These are empty packages that only describe dependencies. They facilitate the installation of a consistent group of programs preselected by the meta-package maintainer; as such,apt-get installmeta-package will automatically install all of these programs using the meta-package’s dependencies. The gnome, kde and linux-image-2.6-686 packages are examples of meta-packages.. The Conflicts field indicates when a package cannot be installed simultaneously with another. The most common reasons for this are that both packages include a file containing the same name, or provide the same service on the same TCP port, or would hinder each other’s operation.. The new package files are then unpacked. If a file already exists, it is replaced, but a backup copy is temporarily made.. # dpkg –unpack man-db_2.5.7-4_i386.deb. 7.2.2. Monitoring What Daemons Are Doing. # Old kernel (if the newly installed kernel doesn’t boot). configuring the console’s keyboard;. Generating DH parameters, 1024 bit long safe prime, generator 2. # netstat -tupan. reject_unauth_destination,. Our goal is to set up three logical volumes for three different applications: a file server requiring 5 GB of storage space, a database (1 GB) and some space for back-ups (12 GB). The first two need good performance, but back-ups are less critical in terms of access speed. All these constraints prevent the use of partitions on their
own; using LVM can abstract the physical size of the devices, sothe only limit is the total available space.. The list of monitored files is stored in /etc/logcheck/logcheck.logfiles; the default values work fine if the /etc/syslog.conf file has not been completely overhauled.. Debian is not a simple collection of individual packages. Everyone’s packaging work is part of a collective project; being a Debian developer involves knowing how the Debian project operates as a whole. Every developer will, sooner or later, interact with others. The Debian Developer’s Reference (in the developers-reference package) summarizes what every developer must know in order to interact as smoothly as possible with the various teams within the project, and to take the best possible advantages of the available resources. This document also enumerates a number of duties a developer is expected to fulfill..
