  Linux Clock : CST,UTC and NTP setup


1. There is an option when you set up clock on installing Linux: system clock users UTC, so what does UTC mean? It's Universal Time Coordinated(UTC), there are two different times in GPS system: one is UTC , the other one is LT(Local Time).

  Building The Linux Kernel In 60 Seconds


In less than one minute, it's now possible to build the Linux kernel from source on a desktop. Besides finishing up the Phoronix Test Suite 3.6-Arendal release this weekend, on Saturday I began running some new Intel CPU benchmarks. In building the Linux 3.1 kernel for x86_64 in a default configuration (make defconfig), I've now managed to trim down the compile time to less than sixty seconds on a single-socket desktop system. Similar speeds can be achieved out of multi-socket servers and othe...

  /dev/null and /dev/tty in Linux


In Linux, there are two special files /dev/null and /dev/tty. /dev/null will drop all the data written to it, i.e, when program writes data to this file, it means the program has completed the data write operation. But in  fact it does nothing, if you just want the status of a command but not the output of a command, this feature will be very useful. See below shell codes:     /> vi test_dev_null.sh        #!/bin/bash    if grep...
