Setting Path in Linux

Setting a path information in windows is always been easier, since there is a GUI facility “Environmental Variables”, but I Linux setting a path is always been tricky and it should be done through CLI (Command Line Interface).  Here are the following ways to do:

Method 1:

For each user (Your login id) of Linux has a home folder (/home/username), there will be a file called as .bashrc (Ubuntu and Fedora) or .bash_profile (Fedora), whatever path has to be set, it should be entered in the above file.

For example: if the software is installed in /home/username/software1/, then the PATH has to be set in the .bashrc or .bash_profile file like this

export PATH=$PATH:/home/username/software1/

($PATH is a shell variable refers to the previous set path also to be included in the PATH setting.)

For Java Home

export JAVA_HOME=/home/username/<Java_path>

Method 2:

The above method of path is applicable only for that user. if other users wanted to access the software, then they have to set the paths. Because, for each user of Linux, the .bashrc or .bash_profile file exists.

if the same path is set for all the users, then the super user can set the path information in the following file

/etc/profile.d/your_path_name.sh

Open the file name (of your choice, but the extension is .sh) and has to be stored in /etc/profile.d/

This folder will be read during the booting process, so all the users of that machine will be able to access the software. The following line is copied to the shell file

export PATH=$PATH:/home/username/software1/

export JAVA_HOME=/home/username/<Java_path>

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/Makefile New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/ ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_tab

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
