Memory Checker / Leak Checker for Linux


Memcheck is the quickest way to find major leaks, but nothing can beat Valgrind for it's complete search of linked library and source library leaks.

Linux Memory Mangement Sucks!

Using SYSPREP to create XP Pro Images


SetupMGR.exe, sysprep.exe and the other tools required are usually found on the XP installation Cd under c:\windows\tools


Restoring a Linux Image with Acronis True Image

After you do the restore using the bootable True Image CD the mbr and Grub config are munged.

Do the following.

Boot into a linux install cd and enter rescue mode by typing: linux rescue at the command prompt.

It will take you thru a few screens; accept the defaults and then it will tell you it is going to search for your linux install, if it finds one it will mount it using /mnt/sysimage as the path.

Once you are at a prompt type chroot /mnt/sysimage to change the root mount to your unbootable linux install on the hard drive.

Next look at grub.conf in /etc/ and determine which HD device holds the grub info and the kernal you want to boot.

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-24.7.x)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.7.x ro root=/dev/hda3
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-24.7.x.img

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-19.7.x)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-19.7.x ro root=/dev/hda3
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-19.7.x.img

AS we can see, the root file system is located in (hd0,0) this is (hard drive #, partition #)

Now exit that file and type grub at the command prompt:

Next type

root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0,0)

This will setup stage2 and correct the MBR on your boot drive and enable you to boot the restored server.

--Thats it.
