Haller.ws is moving from a Raq4 to:

Dual PIII 1.0 GHz 1.0 GB RAM 20GB Drive 1U Server with Promise IDE RAID

The Promise RAID card proved annoying. After our RSBAC kernel compiling, we booted to find:

VFS: Cannot open root device "hda3" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) 

We have a Promise FastTrak 100, which is a PDC20267. But guess what? In your .config you need to enable the new driver which says it's NOT for the PDC20267:


Services we'll be running on it:
  1. SElinux has replaced RSBAC as our security package of choice. Plan on taking a week of solid work to get your services mapped out if you're doing wacky things like having users on your box. ;)
  2. (pop3s|tpop3d-tls|imapd) via dovecot
  3. (mysql|postgresql) most likely both
  4. apache mod_proxy/mod_rewrite to bounce requests to unpriv'd ports running our own wacked-out webservers
  5. quota ~1G
  6. postfix
  7. sshd
  8. monit
