File Duplicates Recursive in Linux

By polfilm,
md5deep -r -l . > filelist.txt
sort < filelist.txt > filelist_sorted.txt

First command will render all hashes for all files
Second will sort the list so as you scroll you will easily spot duplicates with their paths.
m5deep is in most apt-get and yum repos.

VMware Tools install, kernel headers missing, Fedora

By polfilm,

Vmware Tools perl script is actually building the vmtools on your machine. First thing you need to do is update your system so you don’t get a module mismatch.

yum update

Once the system is updated reboot.
When the system comes back just add kernel headers by running

yum install kernel-devel

You can now run the vmware tools script again.

Install procedure on Fedora / Centos


By polfilm,

GlusterFS is a powerful network/cluster filesystem written in user space which uses FUSE to hook itself with VFS layer. GlusterFS takes a layered approach to the file system, where features are added/removed as per the requirement. Though GlusterFS is a File System, it uses already tried and tested disk file systems like ext3, ext4, xfs, etc. to store the data. It can easily scale up to petabytes of storage which is available to user under a single mount point.
