Arrrgh!

Posted 03-14-2013 at 06:49 PM by davetesc

Even though I love Linux I have these moments when I think, just as I get somewhere I'm back to the start.
Having got to grips with most of the things I want from my system I now have several scripts set up so I can do things like run rsync backups and the like....
I'm a distro hopper so I usually have 3 different distros on my laptop, ( currently ubuntu studio, debian testing kde and now mint 14 xfce ) suddenly my scripts run into an error because the external drive I use always mounted...

A good $PS1 for displaying long paths in the bash prompt

Posted 03-13-2013 at 11:29 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-13-2013 at 11:30 PM by the dsc
Tags bash, prompt, ps1

Code:
PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\t \u $(if [ ${#PWD} -gt 30 ] ; then myPWD="${PWD:0:12}…/\W" ; myPWD="${myPWD:0:25}…" ; else myPWD=$PWD; fi ; echo $myPWD) $ '
It will display full paths smaller than 30 characters entirely, but for longer paths it will get only the first characters of the whole path, and the fist characters of the last folder in the full path.

The end result is something like:

Run Slackware (Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack) from a USB stick and save all system changes

Posted 03-13-2013 at 12:56 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made new versions of Exton-Slack 14.0 version 130217 and Exton|Defender version 121120. The new versions can as before be run from a USB stick. The difference now is that any changes you make to the Systems (including upgrades and new software installations) are automatically saved on the stick. You will thus be quite portable, because the Systems on the stick (of course) can run on any “normal” computer.

I’ve kept the old file names (exton-slack-64bit-kde410-906mb-130217.iso...
