Time::TAI::Simple

Posted Today at 10:09 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

Two things: First, my wife tells me this blog's interface sucks, and she hates trying to read it. Apparently it's horrible for users who do not have an LQ account. I'm kicking the tires on some alternatives.

Second, I've uploaded Time::TAI::Simple to CPAN. It provides a high-resolution count of seconds elapsed since the beginning of the epoch, much like Time::HiRes, but un-"corrects" for the IETF's leapsecond adjustments.

This means:

Step By Step Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) LAMP Server Setup

Posted Today at 05:17 AM by sridhar11

In around 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Server Edition, you can have a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.The LAMP option means you don’t have to install and integrate each of the four separate LAMP components, a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual applications. Instead, you get...

KDE's "ark" as a command-line universal (un)archiver

Posted 07-28-2014 at 02:44 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags ark, zip

For some reason I was having issues with some zip files. "Unzip" wouldn't unzip them, but ark (and perhaps other GUI archivers) would.

Fortunately ark can be used as a command line tool as well, which can be better than needlessly opening the full GUI just to make something so trivial. You still can invoke just the dialog, anyway.

But in order to extract something, for example, one can just use:

ark -b file.zip -o ./extantfolder

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.15.6!

Posted 07-28-2014 at 11:32 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.15.6-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.15.6 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140717).
