Raw on Linux

MWD
For anyone looking for info on running raw partitions on Linux, I just found
an excellent article on the fundamentals of Raw on Linux. The site is
www.idevelopment.info . I found the article by navigating to "Oracle" then
"DBA Tips" then "Linux" (About halfway down the page). Since I typically
always use file systems, this was pretty helpful.

That is a "cookbook" type article which forgets one small thing: why would
I want to use raw devices in the first place? I don't have particlarly
strong masochistic preferences, aside from being a senior oracle DBA. Raw
devices are administrative nightmare, cannot be extended, tar/cpio/dump
utilities cannot work with them, I can only have 256 of them and they can
only be 4G in size. Are you sure that your post isn't unsolicited
advertizing (spam, spam, bacon and spam) for an obscure "DBA tips" site?

Just installed J2RE 1.4.2 on a Linux server. I am very knew to the POSIX world. I couldn't dig-up much in the docs or via google about the following: 1 - Is there a standard way to make sure users (all, or some) can "reach" java? eg one could presumably create a java.sh or aliases ... Where is the standard Linux directory to put such a script (and why)?

Rationale to use Linux ======================= - I can't afford paying for $199 for the license of an OS that's arguably better thank Linux for each of 10 computers I have. - I want to be free of Microsoft stigma, and of constant lockdown on Microsoft products. The world is better than that. - Linux runs .NET :-) Reverse engineers in less than a year. That's

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
