Using lvm only on specific drives (Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...)

On our kvm hypervisor we have several vm's using fibre channel for storage. The hypervisor has to see all the devices, but each device has it's own lvm so when the hypervisor boots, it tries to read all of them.

GNOME kiosk session in SunRay SRSS 4.1 on RHEL5

After installing SRSS we tried to setup a gnome kiosk session. There were no prototypes for this installed. After scouring the net we only found an example of something that didn't work :-(.

Sound under KDE on SunRay

We were specifically trying to get skype to work on a sunray. We got audio working by configuring kde.

Xnewt dying on SunRay 3.0

After modifying gdm.conf we noticed that Xnewt would not start properly on occassion. Xnewt was not ignoring the vt[0-9] command line option sent to X to specify a virtual console on which to run. We removed this from the command line sent to Xnewt and renamed Xnewt to Xnewt.sun
pushd /usr/X11R6/bin
mv Xnewt Xnewt.sun
echo << EOF >Xnewt

XFIX=`echo $@ |sed -e's/vt[0-9]*//'`
echo `date`: ARGS=$@ XFIX=$XFIX >>/var/log/Xnewt

exec Xnewt.sun $XFIX -fp unix/:7100
chmod 755 Xnewt
