About Dramsey

Dramsey with friends

Located on the right of this picture (in the pink shirt,) I am a Fedora 9 and 10 user currently experiencing the x86 version. I am trying to integrate useful system administration ideas for my Fedora systems.

  • I am very interested in large memory model programs and multi-core computer systems. I enjoy using virtual machines (VMs) in order to develop a formidable system solution. Through the use of VMs, I am able to try out a variety of software solutions on a VM prior to installation of the software on my production system.
  • I have taken RH033VT as well as RH131VT coursework. I plan on taking both RH253VT as well as RH301VT, in order develop my Red Hat educational foundation.
  • I enjoy using VMs for executing my Fedora 9 and 10 systems. With the effective use of VMs, I am able to concurrently run 6 VMs on my workstation. The picture at the bottom of this page shows 4 VMs. Each VM has 1536 MB of RAM for execution purposes.
  • My latest kernel loaded on a VM is the Fedora 11 (Leonidas) beta kernel. I await the Fedora 11 public release to see how the iBus Intelligent Input Bus "input framework method system" and EXT4 file system "checksum feature for the journal" have developed.
  • A finding on my behalf regarding concurrent guest operating systems is to keep the ntp time clock in sync between the variety of guest VMs.


  • Location: Tokyo, Japan and within The State of Maryland
