openROCK Linux Kernel Mirror


The Kernel Mirror

openROCK.net provides a complete mirror of the Linux kernelsources on a fast colocatedserver in San Jose, California. This is a push mirrorwhich is triggered by updates to the Kernel master site atTransmeta. The archive canbe accessed via ftp, http,nfs or rsync at openrock.net.

Ways to access the archive:

More information about kernel mirrors can be found athttp:/www.kernel.org. For information about installation and useof Linux Kernel sources have a look at http://linuxdoc.org.

Running your own mirror off openrock.net

You can run your own mirror off openrock.net using RSYNC. Read themanpage of RSYNC and then use openrock.net:kernel as the module to mirror.If you would like to have a push mirror setup (your mirror istriggered when the openrock.net mirror has completed an update of the site)then contact us to arrange such a setup.

Finger features

Try finger @openrock.net and you will get an overview of kernelversions available on openrock.net. This includes a list of prereleases.

«Здесь был Вася» – 4 дня в мае

Эту историю я прочитал года 3 назад на просторах веба в каком-то интервью. Создателю ее поведал в начале 60х приятель отца. Я долго ее находил и внезапно заметил в виде уже реализованного сценария. Разница с той ситуацией в том, будто опосля совместного боя русских с германцами супротив русских же, разведчики ушли на катерах совместно с германцами, поэтому как ясно понимали, что в неприятном случае их ожидает расстрел.

Кинофильм занимателен в неименьи однобокости: наши — молодцы, немцы — злодеи. «Горыныч» непростой, никак не тонкий персонаж, какими традиционно бывают герои схожих кинофильмов. Он никоим образом никак не «нравственный уродец посильнее германцев». На нем печать войны, воплощенная во всем: от грубости бойца, затравленного паразитами, каких в жизни хоть какого человека никак не мало, от утраты семьи до защиты девушки, детей. Горыныч на борьбе никак не потерял самого главного свойства — оставаться человеком.

Кстати, не все предпочитают фильмы о войне. Некоторым больше нравится ужасы онлайн смотреть. И я их в чем-то понимаю.

Неимение сцены финального боя никоим образом никак не попортила кинофильма. Сцена опосля битвы, увиденная мальчиком ясно дает понять, будто было на верху. Наверное, субъективный взгляд парня — видео одно, спустился в подвал, пересидел, поднялся, а кругом все поменялось. Совсем неплохой ход.

Мне понравилось то, что хотяб в данном кинофильме показали обычных немцев. Так как были, простые немцы, у которых были дети, которые никак не желали умирать, которые отлично относились к нашим людям. Правда, были и такие. Старики ведали.

The e2compr package consists of a set of patches and utilitieswritten primarily by Antoine Dumesnil de Maricourt (dumesnil@etca.fr) to providetransparent compression and decompression in the second extended(ext2) filesystem.

Reasons you might wish to use e2compr:

  • It reduces hard disk usage. (Robert Budzynski: “Everyone knowsthat you never really have enough disk space, no matter how much you dohave.”) Whether you’re trying to squeeze everything you can onto that 386 with its 50MB hard drive, or you like to keep lots of source code / documentation / books on your multi-gigabyte hard drive, e2compr is just the thing.
  • You can keep things in plain form that you otherwise would have gzipped. For example, Debian keeps all its documentation in gzipped form, which makes it harder to deal with. Postscript files and source trees especially come to mind.
  • Unlike Zlibc, new files can be compressed automatically without your explicit action each time.
  • Much safer than DouBle (if the filesystem becomes full or thesystem crashes). Also, with e2compr you can compress different partsof your filesystem in different ways; in particular, you can choose toleave some areas uncompressed.
  • Unlike tcx, your data files can be compressed as well as your binaries.
  • Although still something of a “work in progress” and not widely released, it is usable now (for home systems) and is relied on by many people.

Reasons you may wish not to use e2compr yet:

  • Bugs are still being discovered, and there are numerous `fixme’ comments in the code.
  • Reduced speed and responsiveness.
  • Backward compatibility with older e2compr releases is not yet considered very important. (Backward compatibility is a yoke that results in kluges and reduced end product quality.) In future, command-line options may change, behaviour may change, and even the file format.

Antoine passed maintainership to Peter Moulder (reiter@netspace.net.au) whenPeter requested permission to distribute an e2compr patch updated forthe then-new Linux-2.0.0.

Since then, Peter, Jan Rêkorajski, Gábor J.Tóth(jtoth@iki.kfki.hu) and Tom Lees (tom@lpsg.demon.co.uk) and othershave developed and maintained e2compr.

In February 2000, Riley Williams rhw@MemAlpha.CX became joint e2compr maintainer with Peter. Thepjm@e2compr.memalpha.cx address at the bottom of each e2compr web pageforwards to both Riley and Peter.

Antoine no longer has the time to maintain e2compr;communication should probably besent to e2compr maintainers or tothe e2compr mailing list. (See below for how to subscribe to the lists).

The system is already usable now, and has been since at least 1997. Many people already rely on it.

Nevertheless, there are many avenues for improvement.

Error detection and handling could be improved, whichis an issue for those with unreliable hard drive I/O.

See the TODO file in the distribution for a longer list ofpossibilities for further development (i.e. `wishlist’).

I wouldn’t use e2compr on a “production” machine (where neitherfaults nor delays are tolerated).
