Back after a long break

Posted 09-07-2011 at 04:29 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 03:39 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...

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Performing the default "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 does not install the graphical subsystem (the X.org server) and the desktop environment (e.g. GNOME or KDE). Such OS install is nice for building an optimal system from scratch, setting up a headless server (no monitor, keyboard and mouse) and other purposes; but for one reason or another, you may still require a graphical...

Linux in the future

Posted 09-06-2011 at 12:40 PM by stefragre

I'm so tired of reading 'negative' media articles about the Linux of tomorrow. How can anyone know the future? I can guess though, and one thing I'll guess is that the constant evolving of Linux in so many areas
can only be good thing. To think it's grown this much from a simple collage students project to where it is today. Numbers? Ha. User experience. Thats where it shines. You or I can take someone else's work
and make it work for you. Don't have to do a thing, if you don't want...

Configuring the Ethernet NIC in CentOS 6 (RHEL 6, Scientific Linux 6)

Posted 09-06-2011 at 12:39 PM by gearge

Take a look at your ifcfg-ethX configuration file under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory (substitute ethX with your network interface, e.g. eth0). In my case, "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 configured the ethernet interface not to start automatically (line ONBOOT="no") and to rely on NetworkManager (NM_Controlled="yes"). This is odd, as NetworkManager is not installed by default. Thus, even though the system is in runlevel 3 and you should have networking (if...
