An introduction to Linux activity/event trackers

Howto Forge - Thu, 18/02/2016 - 2:34pm
Most modern GNU/Linux distributions use some kind of a software service that tracks the user activities and events. These events can be anything, from the opening of a document file, to the chat conversation. This isn't happening for the purpose to monitor the user and sell this usage data information to 3rd parties, but to help users enjoy a more user-friendly and unified experience across their applications.

Among the possible workarounds, one can run kdebugdialog from package kde-runtime and check the "Disable all debug output" button.

This is the output of kdebugdialog when run on a terminal after enabling "Disable all debug output":

How to setup virtual containers with LXC and quota support on Debian 8

Howto Forge - Wed, 17/02/2016 - 2:19pm
Quota support is an often requested feature in lxc. Linux filesystem quota is required when you want to give multiple users access to a container and want to control that one user is not using all the disk space. Quota is also required for web hosting servers, e.g. with ISPConfig 3, for the same reason: one website shall not be able to fill up the whole disk. This howto shows you, how you can use lxc with hard disk quota using qemu nbd with a qcow image file on Debian 8.
