I have not been blogging for a good portion of time this is just a small update. Since my last blog I have moved to Kubuntu 12.04 LTS and enjoy it very much. I'll try to maybe post a screenshot of my desktop. Nothing special but a powerful desktop that I enjoy to use. Best of all is that I was able to use my home directoy with kubuntu as if it was Debian 6.Sadly my dvi video simply does not work on debian nor kubuntu. :-)

Western Digital replaces bricked drive, OK to buy.

Posted 09-06-2012 at 10:20 AM by Skaperen

Buying Western digital drives is back ON. WD has come through, finally, and replaced the bricked drive mentioned in my previous x 2 post here.

I hope the tech support people at WD get an update about how to handle firmware upgrade issues so they can avoid things like this in the future. New firmware, at least if they recommend it, should be supported for at least as...

It has been a while, since I blogged. I didn't have time, with 6 kids and way too many summer plans. I installed Kubuntu after a hard drive crash, replacing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Wow, felt like going back to the Microsoft Environment (Yuck!).

Kubuntu made me wonder how long -- until the planet encompasses Linux, looking back at an era of hampered computing due Billy's brain fart (MS). I have been spreading Linux in my neighborhood, better and faster than any flu-virus. People love it,...

binfind - Search for executable files based from PATH variable.

Posted 09-04-2012 at 10:51 PM by konsolebox
Tags bash, script

I've been using this utility quite long enough already. I use this to search for executable files based from the path values saved in the PATH variable.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

shopt -s extglob

function main {
	# check bash version

	[[ BASH_VERSINFO -ge 3 ]] || {
		echo "This script requires bash version 3.0 or newer."
		return 1
	}

	# check arguments

	[[ $# -eq 0 || "$1"

This script helps a user or admin to automatically convert items in fstab so that they would use UUIDs instead.

uuidfstab[.sh]
Code:
#!/bin/bash

function error {
	echo "$1" >&2
	exit 1
}

function show_usage_and_exit {
	error "Usage: $0 <path_to_fstab_file> [<new_fstab_file>]"
}

function process {
	local FSTABFILE=$1 NEWFSTABFILE=$2 LINE DEVICE TEMPFILE ID OUTPUTFILE
