Tiny Tiny RSS is a great RSS-Reader i am using to read my feeds at home and mobile. But I don’t like the default layout. But not the Theme i am talking about the readability of the text.
The articles using the whole width of the browser what isn’t really nice because your eyes need to do much more motions that way. Furthermore for such kind of text serif fonts are recommended, because we can read them better.
The readability concept is use for tt-rss is the same i use for this blog. If you like you should continue reading.
This daemon creates statistics of your process and application usage. And that is all that is need for speeding up the start of applications by about 50%.
Preload is one of the applications i usually install right after setting up a new desktop distribution. Die effect on the response time of a system is clearly observable. Everything goes faster an makes much more fun .
If you want to use a variable within sed you can not use the usual way ($var) to do so. There are some easy formatting needed to make sed understanding that $var is a variable.
At work i need to use an application that can store and restore images of an computer. I am using Clonezilla to do so. Clonezilla is an distribution of Debian(sid) which does all those jobs. The advantage is that it is very customizable. Because i am storing all the images at the same space and using the same network setup i has become contra productive to setup it again and again for every single image . Thank god Clonezilla can run a prerunscript which does this for me. If you want to do the same get the lastest version of clonezilla as .zip file and extract it. Changes need to be done in the /syslinux/syslinux.cfgfile which defines the menu is shown when booting clonezilla.

Here we have two menu entries, i replaced those i did not need. I will explain the meaning of the syntax now for you:
- label – Defines the option just for the config an can be set with any value
- MENU DEFAULT – This defines which option should be booted if the countdown is over (define only once in config, use # for the rest)
- MENU HIDE - Hides the menu.
- MENU LABEL – The Label that is shown in menu.
- MENU PASSWD – You could ask for an password when choosing the option but it is not needed to me.
- “kernel /live/vmlinuzappend initrd=/live/initrd.img boot=live config noswap nolocales edd=on nomodeset” – Starts clonezilla as it is.
- ocs_prerun=”mount -t cifs -o user=administrator,domain=domain.net 172.28.64.141:/Images /home/partimag” ocs_live_run=”/opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-sr -u restoredisk ask_user sda” ocs_live_extra_param=”" ocs_live_keymap=”/usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de-latin1.kmap.gz” ocs_live_batch=”no” ocs_lang=”en_US.UTF-8″ vga=788 toram=filesystem.squashfs nosplash- Here it becomes very tricky. Do not worry i will explain it for you:
- ocs_prerun= – Commands in this value will run before clonezilla starts.
- mount -t cifs -o- mounts a samba share with parameters:
- user =admin – Login as “admin”
- domain=domain.net – name of the domain (if you don’t know leave it blank. Home spaces do not use domains )
- 172.28.64.141:/Images – Place where the Images are stored or should be placed
- /home/partimag – Clonezilla mounts the images here which is the reason it does not ask for any other place to search for the images.
- ocs_live_run=”/opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-sr -u restoredisk ask_user sda” - ocs_live_run is defined two times in my config. This one runs the restore function of Clonezilla.
- ocs_live_run=”/opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-sr -u -q2 -z1p -i 2048 -p poweroff savedisk ask_user sda- This is the second entry which runs the store function:
- -u - Asks the user for the image name (could be set in config too).
- restoredisk or savedisk - Which mode to run ? store, restore, partition or hard-drive ?
- ask_user - This would be the name of the image but “-u” requests it from user.
- sda – Which hard-drive should be written or red.
- -q2 – Use “partclone”. I am preferring this .
- -z1p – Use gzip-Kompression (with multicore)
- -i 2048 – Splitzise in megabyte (Split every 2GB a new file for the backup.)
- -p poweroff - power off after successfully running the script.
- toram=filesystem.squashfs – Extracts all files to a ramdisk. Therefore you can remove the stick when clonezilla is booted.
After we modified our script we can flash it to an flashdrive (e.g using UnetBootIn or something like that) and test it.
If you have any problems with this how-to feel free to ask me for help and more information.
