Debian



Getting Started

This is some minor fixes that I used to get Debian running the way I wanted on my laptop.

Running Chrome as Root in Linux. (BAD IDEA)

nano /usr/bin/google-chrome

Add “–user-data-dir” on to the very last line of the file.

Currently the main project that I am playing with is my Minecraft Server.

I am running this website and the Minecraft Server on two Debian 6.0 boxes.

The Minecraft server is a dual core 2.5Ghz with 2GB of ram.

The webserver is a single core 192mb ram box. I am using it to run apache which is powering wordpress to bring you all these fancy posts. I also have my own personal webmail setup just for me. Try it. 🙂 Email me at jayson@jaysonbrush.com.
