comment Open Source Terminal Server For Linux?
PS: Last montI i set up an Ubuntu 12.04 system, and I went looking for a way to provide GUI sessions from Windows machine. What I ended up with was the TightVnC server, which supports GUI sessions that can be connected to remotely, combined with xrdp, which provides a bridge to the RDP protocol, allowing the standard Windows Remote Desktop client to be used for access - and in addition, it makes TightVNC start a new session upon connecting and shut it down when the session is closed.

It depends on what exactly you mean by 'in real time'.

comment How to unzip files bigger than 4GB?
I compiled the current unzip-6.0 from scratch - it didn't fix the problem.

Perhaps you can monitor for two log rotation instances or prevent that from happening.

Locking-related, is my next guess. Who is doing the locking?

Your /var/log is on a local disk, right? Mounting it from another machine might lead to problems like this.

OK ... you can check the /proc filesystem or use the lsof command to see which processes have which files open. I'd also check the logs in /var/log to see if your disk is dying. I'm really just guessing here.

comment NFS Common Utilities fails to start
What did you try to delete?? Yes, logs are usually in /var/log so you may want to replace /var with something more specific. Please don't type in commands or delete files without understanding what they do - they all have documentation, e.g. man find gives you the explanation for the find command.

comment High time accuracy on Windows Servers - alternatives to w32tm?
Thanks a lot, this seems to have resolved my problem (which was a diffeent one, namely that I can't figure out how to tell w32tm to /resync even when the time is a month off).

comment Troubleshooting linux server reboots?
A kernel panic is very unlikely - hardware trouble such as an overheating processor or memory errors is much more likely.
