Should dependency resolving be made part of basic computer administration skills?

Honestly as a Slackware user I'm very well skilled in this trait and can easily manage my own system, but what about automated package management distributions? Sure you can have a system hold your hand and walk you through in baby steps, but what about that rare case when a dependency is not resolved by the package management system because the package is obscure enough not to have a mainstream dependency file? What then? Honestly, I have ran across some of these. I've had to often do hour long...

New Master...

Posted 09-07-2011 at 02:07 PM by Thor_2.0

I'm getting a dark feeling...I may have to remaster the original CD.

Installing GNU tar, because the Busybox tar does'nt always work, depends on...dependencies. These need to come first.

The plan is to set everything up and master whatever result is there to a CD. In the same run, I could set up the /etc/resolv.conf TTYLinux does not have. And append to the rc.conf to get networking set up in one clean swoop...

But, as this could take a while, I decided...

My N900. (Bricked!)

Posted 09-07-2011 at 08:54 AM by rich_c

Oops! I was messing with my N900, installing the power kernel and doing a spot of light overclocking. This had the effect of breaking the fcam camera drivers. I tried to fix that by installing the latest drivers from the development repositories. This pulled in the very latest power kernel which seems to have resulted in a reboot loop situation. :-( I'm hoping that a kernel only reflash will put it all back to normal...

Back after a long break

Posted 09-07-2011 at 05:29 AM by indeliblestamp

I'm slightly ashamed of the fact that I haven't posted to LQ for nearly 2 years. I have happy memories of this site.. I'm a lurker nearly everywhere else on the web, but this is one of the only places where I actually used to contribute something.
I've had a slightly addictive spell with gaming this past year, but I've shaken it off and I'm back to Linux now

Simulate -print0 with ls

Posted 09-07-2011 at 04:39 AM by sag47

Recently I wanted to manipulate files only in the current directory (not sub-directories). I usually use the following combination...

Code:
find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 somecommand
The only problem I had with that was it ran through all sub-directories as well. Then I remembered the -m switch for ls and decided to depend on my good old friend sed.

Code:
ls -m | sed 's/, /\x0/g' | xargs -0 somecommand
Though I guess it would be better to do it...
