Wow - I ran Update on synaptic and apt-listbugs tells me that metacity segfaults after restart. I decide to risk it, as it won't stop me booting. The update finishes & I closed it & did Ctrl-Alt-BkSp to restart all the GUI stuff, X, Gnome, etc.
GDM looked slightly different, I logged in & Bam! Big surprise - no desktop. Gnome 3 had arrived.
I love it. There's a learning curve, & probably I need to do some manual cleanup after apt has "converted" my Gnome 2...

'stat' vs 'date' w/re string manipulation in Bash scripts

I started browsing the Web tonight looking to do something I had been doing in my Bash scripts with stat and three more lines of string cutting in one line instead.

I had been using stat -c &y file to get a file's modification date in scripts, but I have never liked the nine-digit "blink-of-an-eye" part of the return on that command. My method up till now has been to eliminate it with lines like these:
Code:
gdate=$(stat -c %y foo.jpg)
pqdate=$(echo ${gdate%.*})

Hello!

Posted 11-16-2011 at 07:08 AM by kbscores

This is my first blog entry! Going to introduce myself and explain a little bit about what I am going to blog about.

As of right now I am a junior sys admin at a medium sized datacenter. I primarily work with RHEL, so the bulk of my blogs will be in reference to that operating system. I have been here for about six months and have learned a lot.

About one month ago the only other Linux SA left and that forced me to learn fast. Even though there are several other...
