uuidfstab - Convert fstab contents to a format that uses UUID instead of /dev paths.

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>]"

FOSS projects should not use mailing lists for help

Posted 09-04-2012 at 10:58 AM by Skaperen

Mailing lists are fine among a limited group of developers. But this is a bad idea for offering help to refer to a mailing list.

Mailing lists are limiting submissions to their subscribers, or not. These days, no one, not even hard core developers, would want their email box polluted by spammers. So that means no open (anyone can send) mailing lists. But that also means anyone just needing some quick help has to become a subscriber to the mailing list, first. Not only is that a hassle...

Rant: what was wrong/"bad" with mplayer-gui/gmplayer?

Posted 09-03-2012 at 11:41 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags mplayer, rant

I don't get it. It wasn't like it inspired someone to say that it's the GUI that one ever dreamed about, but was fully functional, and funnily enough more reliable than all the alternative GUIs that used mplayer as a back-end, as far as I've looked at. I guess the decision eventually resulted in a (current to me at least) problem with subtitles/fontconfig, as subtitles will work on mplayer and mplayer2, but not on gmplayer, even though it never used to be that way before.

It's not...
