Controlling your Linux system processes

I have had another article published by Linux.com: Controlling your Linux system processes

All modern operating systems are able to run many programs at the same time. For example, a typical Linux server might include a Web server, an email server, and probably a database service. Each of these programs runs as a separate process. What do you do if one of your services stops working? Here are some handy command-line tools for managing processes.

Thanks,

Recently, two years since its last major release, the CentOS project released version 5 of its enterprise-focused Linux distribution. I downloaded it and put it to the test, and found that CentOS 5 has maintained its tradition of robustness and reliability while adding new features like virtualization.

Receiving remote X connections on OS X

Category: Linux
Posted: 2007-03-21 09:41, Edited: 2007-03-21 14:41

I recently needed to display an application from my Linux box to a Mac OS X machine. The Apple X server was running and working OK for local X apps but I couldn't get remote applications to display.

Well it turned out that like SuSE (see Receiving remote X connections) remote connections are disabled by default.

So for OS X to enable remote X connections you need to configure the display server to accept incoming network connections. The nolisten_tcp setting controls this. It must be set to false in order to accept connections.


To do this you use the Mac OS X user defaults system. Use defaults write to change a setting. Type the following in a terminal:

defaults write com.apple.x11 nolisten_tcp -boolean false

Remember, false enables incoming connections, true disables connections. Use the boolean values instead of their numeric counterparts.

Thanks,
