A C/C++ SCRIPT to change symlinks to url links.

Posted 09-08-2013 at 03:05 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-08-2013 at 03:28 PM by rainbowsally

Today's feature:
  • A C/C++ utility (script if you have runc-rs) to change symlinks to url files.

[Requires runc-rs or at least librunc.a from runc-rs.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...int-kde-35688/
Doesn't require mint to work, nor even a deb derivative.]

This experiment today is significantly less ambitious than the deb repository builder thingy in the previous blog entry and is again a nice intro to C/C++...

Posted 09-07-2013 at 07:25 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-07-2013 at 07:29 PM by rainbowsally (added link)

Today's Features
  • A debian package repository creator.
  • Testing runc as a shell function (direct execution of C/C++ code).

[See also "Run C/C++ code as a script" http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...script-35691/]

I took kubuntu for a spin (installed on an old computer) to see if I could convert it to mint after kubuntu was installed. The kubuntu installer was a little better.. by a mainingful notch, at least for the...

Run C/C++ Code As Script

Posted 09-04-2013 at 12:36 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 08:13 AM by rainbowsally (new version)

runc update Sept 27, 2013

http://rainbowsally.org/rainbowsally...-rs-1.2.tar.gz

Changes slist_count() to standard objlist syntax and removes slist_getCount()
Removes destructor functions from objlist so that each class explicitly free anything memory they allocate.
Added atexit() function to tmpmem/tmpstr functions.
Most of these changes address memory leaks and/or memory that remains accessible after the apps close.

Tooling Up In LinuXMint/KDE

Posted 09-03-2013 at 08:12 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 08:15 AM by rainbowsally (statement error)

[Correction. The mint version of the url to a local (on your hard drive) repository seems to work, but it's not really right.

After doing this in Kubuntu, it became clear that the two last fields (see below) are subdirs of the third to last field. Still working this out from examples rather than official 'docs' but take a look at this if you are interested in making offline repositories you can modify easily.

Taking Mint/KDE for a spin

Posted 08-30-2013 at 09:17 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-03-2013 at 03:09 PM by rainbowsally (addendum)

[Added a PS about kubuntu getting 'harvested' by mint and openSUSE.]

[Rant at the top this time. Skip down to the dotted line to see if any of these tips are useful to you if you are a mint user. The links at this blog are all now broken. I will correct them with an explanation in a while.]

I used to be a suse/opensuse fan. It's no longer possible to continue with the suse distros though. The last usable version (for me) was 11.4, and that took a bit of effort....
