gnome-disk-manager – the easier way to manage disks in Gnome with Palimpsest

I had been using quite different set of tools to this but this is really good. Just install the gnome-disk-manager with

mussh – Multihost SSH wrapper


Mussh is a shell script that allows you to execute a command or script over ssh on multiple hosts with one command. When possible mussh will use ssh-agent and RSA/DSA keys to minimize the need to enter your password more than once.

It is a utility for system administrators maintaining more than one hosts. The utility will help the admin to execute the same command on multiple hosts with a single command.

Here are few examples:

mussh -H ./linuxhosts -C spfiles/
mussh -c \”cat /etc/hosts\” -h


Usage: mussh [OPTIONS] <-h host.. | -H hostfile> [-c cmd] [-C scriptfile]
