[MYSTERY SOLVED] What does "echo ???????????????" really do?

Posted 04-20-2016 at 08:39 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

It seems to alternate between listing an Nth file (somewhat obscurely related with the number of question marks) on the current folder, or giving some "history" entry, I guess.

That's weird.

Code:
22:54 **ROOT** /# echo ?
?
22:54 **ROOT** /# echo ??
??
22:54 **ROOT** /# echo ???
bin dev etc lib mnt opt run smb srv sys tmp usr var
22:55 **ROOT** /# echo ????
boot home proc root sbin
22:55 **ROOT** /# echo ?????

CruxEX (CRUX 3.2) live CD/USB with kernel 4.5.1-cruxex and Nvidia Graphics driver 361.42 pre-installed

I have made yet another version of CruxEX.

CruxEX 3.2 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB is based on CRUX 3.2 (latest version, released 151123), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.2 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.2 2016 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel with “my” special kernel 4.5.1-cruxex, with support for “extra everything”.

Dell Latitude D620

Posted 04-13-2016 at 09:59 PM by shsmith

Hey all,
I got the power supply for the Latitude on Saturday. Nice that it was early, but they didn't send me the one I ordered. However, the one they sent does work, so I'm not gonna complain. The bios does not recognize that a battery is installed, so I guess that is next on the list to purchase. I also want to eventually up the ram to 4GB and get a 1TB hard drive for it. Currently it has 1GB of ram and a 60GB hard drive. I went ahead and put Fedora 23 on it, and it seems to be running...
