Snark1994 12-28-2012 10:10 AM

say?

jwtear 12-29-2012 12:58 PM

Jwtear you didn't answer his question nor did you enter the right code. First you don't have the $ which indicates a variable I believe. I assume your username is Linux. If That's wrong too. What he actually wants to know is after you put in the correct code what is the output.

Snark1994 12-30-2012 03:15 AM

Exactly as minty33 says: copy and paste

Code:

date -u +%W$(uname)
into a terminal and press enter.

(though @minty33: 'uname' doesn't print your username, it prints the name of your kernel. Look at 'man uname' for more info)

jwtear 01-01-2013 12:47 PM

yes i know it print my kernel , but also didn't work this too.

We are interested in what the output of the command is, so we can have a better idea of what's going wrong. If you keep saying "it didn't work", we have no new information! Please run the command

Code:

date -u +%W$(uname)
exactly as it is written (copy and paste it) and then tell us what output it gives you.

Thanks,

when i said didn't work i meant the registration forum in archlinux say the answer is wrong her is my output :
Code:

00Linux
and this
Code:

date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'
gives :
Code:

b7093e2653b5c2355b6d0bd6c08337c82c3a8f2e10be73ff62b19d7d1f7c0e63
the arhclinux question is
Code:

date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'
not
Code:

date -u +%W$(uname)

The number before Linux should be the week number. Does it work if you change it to '01Linux' and use together with the rest of the command?

Just tried it myself - it does work if you try 01Linux. However, if I run the command given (date -u +%W$(uname)) I get '00Linux' like the OP did (and as the manpage suggests we should). I'll start a thread on the Arch forums mentioning the problem.

EDIT: yes, it's already been reported: though the admin feedback isn't great so far. Hooray for jeremy and the mods, I guess ;) links are https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=155530 and https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic....13243#p1213243

i tried 01linux its not work also still say the answer is wrong.

minty33 01-03-2013 09:55 AM

When you did it with 01Linux did you remember to check daylight savings. I know it's mentioned first on the thread but want to make sure you didn't lose sight of that w/ the other issues going on.

jwtear 01-03-2013 02:40 PM

yes bro.
