Posted 09-19-2013 at 05:10 AM by translator1111 (CLI is your friend)

I had an old Fujitsu notebook with W95 as OS with 2 partitions on it C:for OS; D: for Data. toguether a 5 GB HDDD. I made a third partition with the help of HAOS tools dividing C in half with volume EXT3 (1600 MB) took some space from D: for a fourth partition with volume EXT3 (50 MB) and another with volume EXT2 (120 MB).

RIP: bad value: NULL

Posted 09-18-2013 at 08:57 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Spent a few days debugging what I thought was a bizarre kernel bug on a RHEL 6.3 box. We had crash utilities installed and I'd gotten incredibly comfortable with analyzing kernel crash dumps. I can also say that I'm intimately familiar with a few features of the Linux kernel that I didn't even know existed before.

If you know much about kernel debugging, you probably already know the fix (due to the subject line). See, when you analyze a kernel crash dump, you get certain information,...

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.04 - codenamed "Raring Ringtail", released on April 25, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.0 (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Mate 1.6, Razor-qt 0.4.1 Cinnamon 1.7.4 and XBMC 12.0 (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different six Desktop Environments.

Got X11 working.

Posted 09-17-2013 at 09:07 PM by ReaperX7

Finished the main chapter of X-Windows for BLFS today and fired up the twm (tiling window manager) that is more or less a very basic desktop environment with a few X-Terminals (xterm) open, and got a few more packages built.

I'm now working on the X Forms Common Environment (Xfce) UI to give me a basic desktop environment to work from and after that I'll be looking into the Xfce applications as well.
