Is Linux Linux? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Linux is Linux - so they say.

People say that Linux is Linux - implying that Linux within itself is more UNIX than UNIX is. I am tending to disagree.
I have been active on various UNIX flavors since 1979 with the focus on AIX flavor since 1996.

ROOTVG wiki - slow going - REDHAT install woes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

You may have noticed that ROOTVG WIKI is progressing slowly. Much slower than intended, and I will not bother you -here - with either the personal or technical issues - although I do intend to share most of the technical issues in the wiki as I overcome and/or struggle to overcome them.

The most recent changes are, basically, about the different behavior and possibilities depending on the install interface chosen when installing REDHAT Enterprise 6.5. In short, the CLI (command-line-interface) is very limited compared to the VNC method. I am completely surprised that I can neither choose how to configure the network interface, nor the base install profile. CLI means no network definition, minimal install - PERIOD.

Time to plan for a disruptive update!

If you have a POWER7-770, POWER7-780 or POWER7-795 and do not have Dynamic Platform Optimizer - now is the time to start planning for that seldom "Disruptive Update". That is, long time coming - but now it is here for the Power7-770 and Power7-780 MHB (aka Model B frames) with the latest firmware AM780_040 .

I'll be updating my POWER7 Latest Firmware table asap!

wiki woes and spam PDF Print E-mail

New SPAM things to combat. New settings in effect. The will stay closed, as far as user edits is concerned - as I am using the wiki framework to build, overtime, a front-end to the tools I package and/or develop. The is intended to be a more classic wiki where people register and contribute. To date that has just been so much spam - but I have learned from this!
ROOTVG wiki begins PDF Print E-mail

Lost my fear of wiki after starting |  | . Started a new one under the ROOTvg domain - | Focus is on all things POWER - so POWER hardware, AIX and related software, IBM i (not much yet, but it belongs to POWER!), and my new area of expertise - Linux on Power (if only I had kept my URL from a few years back :snif:)!

So, come to and share experiences!
