for some reason, and you probably won't stay long. Here's a list of
Linux distributions to choose from.

IN your opinion what is the best way to share files between LInux and
MAC OS X?
I set up SAMBA on the LInux machine and the MAC (running the very
latest OSX) can copy files to the SAMBA share at lightning speeds.
When I try and copy files from the LInux machine to the Mac they take
So slow in fact I have to kill the process .
I would appreciate any thoughts on why that maybe and also if there is
a better way to share files (I guess HTTP-FTP would be the most
sensible option ).

I have a problem backing up files on my Linux machine. I have tried
using tar and cpio but the file exceeds the 32 bit file size limit of 2
GB. Ideally I would like a backup that was a replication of the file
system so I could access the files individually not in an archive I
also want to exclude the filesystem I am writing the backup too for
Can anyone help pls.
Try using the tar command as a pipe with an exclude file. This example
will backup the machine from the / mountpoint recursively excluding the
filesystem mounted on /mnt where the backup will be held.

To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!
So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that
they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia,
and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be
behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters,
throwing feces at one another and beating their
chests pretending to know something.
My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love,
of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely
human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak
with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the
monkeyhouse of COLA) they remin...I have Linux! I have Linux!

I have two old desktops both running Ubuntu Linux, I also have an XP
laptop all working behind a draytek 2600 router.
Samba is set up on both Linux machines, my XP machine can access both
Linux machines and both Linux machines can access the XP laptop.
Problem is neither Linux machine can view the other's files. If from
either Linux machine I connect to the network it shows the other Linux
machine, clicking on the networked Linux machine it then lists the

...D3/Linux Linux swap file usage
Okay... Put on your thinking caps...
I have a D3/Linux 7.2.1 system that I did a complete restore on a
couple of weeks ago. Before the shutdown to do the reload of files,
the box was using over 85% of the 2GB swap space. After restarting
the system and getting users back on line, the swap usage was around
90MB and has been growing slowly ever since. The swap usage is now
So my questions are:
1. Does the usage of swap ever go down?
2. What is using up the swap space?
