This recipe is for setting virtualization on a voidlinux desktop.
Use this setup script to set things up on void linux.

The point of this recipe is to create a encrypted file sytem
so that when the disc is disposed, it does not need to be
securely erased. This is particularly important for SSD devices
since because of block remapping (for wear levelling) data can't
be overwritten consistently.
The idea is …
I made the switch to void linux. Except for compatibility
glibc, it works quite well. Most compatibility
I have worked around with a combination of
The high lights of void linux:
- musl build - which is very lightweigth
- Does not depend on
There are plenty of reasons why people would need to encrypt a
partition. Whether they're rooted it in privacy, security, or
confidentiality, setting up a basic encrypted partition on a Linux
system is fairly easy. This is especially true when using LUKS, since
its functionality is built directly into the …
If you often mount and access a remote NFS share on your system, you
will probably want to know how to improve NFS file access performance.
One possibility is using file caching. In Linux, there is a caching
filesystem called FS-Cache which enables file caching for network file
systems such …
It is possible to migrate the whole array to larger drives
(e.g. 250 GB to 1 TB) by replacing one by one. In the end the number
of devices will be the same, the data will remain intact, and you will
have more space available to you.
Extending an …
So finally took the time to try out a Raspberry Pi. For this weekend project wanted to do something relatively simple.
Essentially, I wanted to recreate/enhance the functionality of a
The TL-WR702N Nano Router is a neat device but being closed, can not be customized to what I …
In Linux, there is a caching filesystem called
FS-Cache which enables
file caching for network file systems such as NFS.
FS-Cache is built
into the Linux kernel 2.6.30 and higher. In order for
operate, it needs cache back-end which provides actual storage for
caching. One such …
I am still to test this recipe
First of all, we must install the following components:
- A DHCP server to assign IP addresses to our diskless nodes.
- A TFTP server to transfer the boot image (a requirement of all PXE option roms).
- A form of network storage (NFS …
