I'm a Web Developer, working on both the front and back end.
Most of my work is with the LAMP stack.

Love the old "Thin Man" movies.

I try to answer questions in a way that will be useful to anyone who comes across them. That means that I sometimes include basic concepts or fixes.

So, if I include basic things in an answer to your question, it does not reflect my opinion of you nor is it an attempt to belittle you.

Be Well

comment “fdisk -l” like list of partitions and their types for LVM logical volumes?
Great Answer. It seems like no one else understood what the OP was asking for. I had to make one change to your script: I added the --dereference option to the file command. Each LV is linked to /dm-X by the device mapper.

I ran some tests after reading your answer. As you indicated, the difference wasn't notable.

comment Linux service --status-all shows “Firewall is stopped.” what service does firewall refer to?
Answer to your question about how I moved the discussion to chat. There's an automatic feature that says "Please avoid extended discussions in comments. Would you like to automatically move this discussion to chat?" it appeared after seven comments in this case (not sure if it's a set number of comments that causes it to appear). It appears above the chat field and the second sentence is a link that creates the chat room. It happened to me one other time on Stack Overflow.

No, both iptables and iptables6 are set to on for run levels 2 - 5. I looked with chkconfig --list, is there anything else that I should check?

comment Linux service --status-all shows “Firewall is stopped.” what service does firewall refer to?
I think there is a misunderstanding, I want iptables to run and act as a firewall. You say maybe I forgot to stop iptables, why would I want to stop iptables? I want to know what service the "Firewall is stopped" output refers to. I just confirmed that the iptables are in effect even though it saya firewall is stopped, so they don't seem to be connected, see the edit to my question that I'll add after I finish this comment.

I rebooted and ran chkconfig --list iptables and runlevel. Runlevel is 3 and config is on for levels 2 through 5. I'm rebooting and will look at the /var/log/messages first thing. I'll add more info to the question shortly.
