Saw at osnews today a reference to Zumastor which is at:
Zumastor is a community project started by Google members to bring
enterprise storage features to Linux. Currently, we offer a
ready-to-use network storage server with enterprise features such as
online volume backup, multiple volume snapshots, remote volume
replication, integration with Kerberized CITI NFS and Samba, all
wrapped up with a nice, easy management interface.
As a subproject we offer the ddsnap virtual snapshot Linux kernel
extension, which adds multiple snapshot and remote replication
capability to Linux filesystems in general.

I want to be able to read-write to one of my ext3 partitions as an
ordinary user as I can to the home partition and the FAT32 partitions. I
am running Kubuntu Edgy which uses UUIDs in /etc/fstab which I haven't
got the hang of yet (for everything except floppies and CDROMs). e.g.
UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx /media/hdd2 ext3 defaults
UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxx /media/hddboot ext3 defaults
and for the FAT32 partitions:
UUID=xxxx-xxxx /media/win-c vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0
UUID=xxxx-xxxx /media/win-data vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0
The umask option seems to be available only on FAT32 partitions and just
adding user or users to the ext3 options doesn't do the trick.
I have Googled and looked at the Edgy manual but can't find anything
that quite explains how to do it in the approved way - not one that I
can understand anyway.
Can somebody point me to the right way of doing this?
Useful drivers for people if you have a reasonably new notebook.

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] d80211 based driver for Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
To: linux-kernel(a)vger.kernel.org, linux-wireless(a)vger.kernel.org,
Please hold all questions until I am done with this email. Thank you.
We are pleased to announce the availability of a new driver for the
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection adapter. This new driver
uses the new d80211 subsystem previously only available as part of the
You can find the new driver, and additional information about it, here:
Within the new driver package are sources which we plan to submit for
kernel inclusion as well as scripts and patches which create a version
of the driver which can be loaded into kernels based on 2.6.18 and newer
(provided you have installed the d80211 subsystem as well) The README
document can walk you through pretty quickly.
Since a lot of our users are not able to move to the latest versions of
the Linux kernel, we have put together a d80211 package allowing the
installation of the d80211 subsystem into an existing kernel image
without the need to migrate to wireless-dev, or upgrade to a newer
kernel at all (assuming you are using 2.6.18 or newer).
You can find that package at:
Ok. Now... any questions?
