Unity Linux where is it on list of distros?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2010
Looking through LinuxQuestions' list in Distro Reviews, I find no mention of Unity. I downloaded this distro from the University of Idaho mirror the other day and loaded it on my ancient Dell PIII I had maxed out at a 996 MHz CPU, 512MB RAM and an 80GB ATA 133 hard drive -- it runs GREAT! I did run into a problem with the new Linux kernel -- it is too much for the P3 to handle (but this was my fault for not knowing the CPU's limitations). Otherwise, the boot time is a tremendous improvement over anything else I've tried, so far on my old machine. Be careful with passwords on install, per usual. Also, the repos are limited. I recommend downloading the Open Office iso to install on this distro later, if so desired. Overall, this minimal distro performs admirably and deserves a spot on your review list. Hilyard
Bluetooth configuration where is it stored on Debian?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 6, 2011
After many hours of searching I can confirm that on Debian 6 and Ubuntu 10.04 information about Bluetooth devices and pairing is not stored by default in any of the following places: /etc/hcid.conf /etc/bluetooth/main.conf gconf registry I have searched every file in / using ack-grep for the pin for my device in attempt to find where this data is stored. Nothing was found. The source code for bluetooth-applet (for gnome) seems to indicate that bluetooth device info is encrypted and then saved using D-Bus: Code:
SSL Certificates For Mail Server?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 18, 2011
I need to use TLS authentication for SMTP and IMAP4 (Postfix 2.8 & Dovecot 2.x) however I don't know really what the best level would be. I did some searching and am very confused between people generating a CSR, CRT, & KEY or then I see some people generate a .PEM for both the CRT (public) and a .PEM for the KEY (private). I don't know or understand the difference between the two kinds. Can someone please tell me what I should be using? I do know that I have OpenSSL to generate a 256 bit encryption key however.

[SOLVED] SSL Certificates ca.key, ca.csr & ca.crt questions
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 11, 2013
Following commands will generate ca.key and ca.csr. # openssl genrsa -out ca.key 2048 # openssl req -new -key ca.key -out ca.csr Please correct me as required. Above two can be sent to Certificate Authority to generate a ca.crt. This ca.crt can be applied into the Linux server or load balancer. Say this ca.crt was applied in Linux, is there a way to re-export this applied ca.crt to load balancer or is there no such thing. I still haven’t got the full concept of SSL Certificates.

I am an advanced user and want to access the files of an app. I would like to know the directories in which apps and their data are stored. If they are stored in multiple directories then you may give me all the directories in which they are stored.
[SOLVED] Installing SSL certificates on Ubuntu Server 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2013
Hi everyone, I am working on a Nginx + Apache installation for learning purposes, and just got to the point of installing a self-signed certificate for securing some pages that will be used to send "sensitive" information such as login credentials. So far so good. What a I want to know is how can I tell the difference between using certificates or not at the log level. In other words, I know that using https and a certificate is more secure but I would like to "see it". To further clarify my question, what should I look out for both in the Nginx or Apache logs to ensure that using a certificate is indeed protecting the sensitive information as it is being sent. I hope I made myself clear. Any hints, ideas, will be more than welcome! Thanks in advance.
New to Linux, where to get started
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2011
Hi gang! So I want to break the mold at my house. Sick and tired of the Xp viruses and malwares and would like to run Linux as I "here" its more secure? and less prone to the hack world out there. So, being new to the world of Linux, and hearing it's a "safer" OS I'd appreciate some tips, feedback regarding security, viruses and malware protection, as well as which would be the GUI of choice. as I see there are several options. Where can I download from. although I do see a "download link". can I download my Linux OS and gui right from this site. thanks/Gary
[SOLVED] Vinagre where are bookmarks stored?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 1, 2010
I have just completed a rebuild of my desktop PC Ubuntu install - switched from Lucid 64 bit to Lucid 32 bit. I connected to another PC with Vinagre (remote desktop viewer) and allowed it to save the connection as some name it created. Later after I noticed this I created a bookmark to the same PC with a name which I wanted. Now I cannot delete the original bookmark. I have read about some bugs re. dealing with bookmarks in Vinagre. However, I have found no work arounds. Here is what I have tried: 1 - I did a complete uninstall of Vinagre and reinstalled 2 - Deleted .recently-used.xbel The Vinagre bookmarks remained. Can someone tell me where Vinagre bookmarks are stored and perhaps how to delete one? If I cannot remove a single one I will zap all by brute force. Yes, I have everything backed up. TIA, Ken
