The following commands upgrade an existing umounted ext3 filesystem to ext4 without having to reformat:
Code:
tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/partition
e2fsck -fDC0 /dev/partition
To upgrade the root partition, change /etc/fstab so that it will be mounted as ext4 (since ext4 can mount an ext3 file system), then reboot as single user read-only (recovery mode). Then after setting the tune2fs parameters, reboot again before running e2fsck. Then reboot...

Wonder what Apple will come out with this weekend that linux has been doing for years.

Tested the motors from what I got at Goodwill. They work. I did not test the rc receivers from two of them. Need to start doing research. Pulled a couple of motors from some old old cdrom. Tested them and they work. They are going into a toy for an xmas gift.

Bought an adult bike from Goodwill for 5 dollars. Have a lot of work to do in it, but looks like it will be fine. Have to adapt...

Any open t-shirt designers?

That being said, they're running competition for t-shirt designs for the event! It's a good opportunity to stick your graphic idea onto 1200 global desktop nerds.

getting debian repository

Posted 05-16-2011 at 04:39 AM by sumeet inani

I wanted an offline repository at home for my faithful
pentium3 , 1Ghz , 384MB RAM desktop .
So I ran
Code:
wget -b -A i386.deb,i386.udeb,dsc,gz,all.deb  -r -a progress-log  -mk -c ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/
Debian repository is 200GB including all 11 architectures it support .So we have to be specific.

I don't know whether 8 dvd iso from http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/.../i386/iso-dvd/ is repository or not ? otherwise...
