Map DVD in repository

Posted 03-14-2012 at 10:30 PM by lilchakki

Thanks in advance,...

Ran the live edition, seemed to go OK, internet working etc, so decided to install. My partitions were as follows, to make it easier (glad I decided to do that last time!):

/sda1 12GB obsolete ubuntu version to be replaced by the new LMDE
/sda2 logical partition:
/sda5 2GB swap
/sda3 36GB DATA partition with all my files on
/sda4 11GB Linux Mint 10 (to leave for now so I know it works if I need to do work!)

Install ran...

Linux Mint Debian Edition

I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.

Linux Mint 10 is coming up to the end of it's support, so I need to do something on this computer... Ideally I want to have something with longer term support, so I don't have to faff around setting everything up again until I get around to getting a new computer with decent...

this pointer - C++

The this pointer is a hidden pointer inside every class's non-static function which points to the class's particular object through which the concerned function is called.
class A
        int rollNumber;

	A (int rollNum)
	    rollNumber = rollNum;

	void setRollNumber (int rollNum)
	    rollNumber = rollNum;

Synergy. Control multiple computers with one keyboard and mouse

It's inevitable. Eventually you will end up with more than one computer. If you were smart enough to hold on to the old one, here is a way you can now use both, or 3 or 4, with one keyboard and mouse. This tutorial is done on Vectorlinux using the Quicksynergy front end, but Synergy itself will run on Mac, Windows as well as all Linux flavors. As usual, I've captured it all on video and put it up on Youtube.

Check out the Video here.
