Reinstalling Linux due to a slip up Part 2.

Posted 07-02-2009 at 03:53 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

It's been months since my last posting. But I finally got around to reinstalling Linux.

I went ahead and reformatted the windows partition to lower it's max capacity by 18GB (for Linux).

The home dir is binded to the Windows partition, specifically, the Users folder. So the Linux user home directory is shared with the Windows User directory. So there's no need to back up both places, since they are shared. This is accomplished by NTFS-3G.

18GB should...

Non-authoritative scan results of BitDefender, ClamAV and F-prot

Posted 07-01-2009 at 08:35 PM by unSpawn
Tags antivirus

Like before here's some results of running BitDefender, ClamAV and F-prot on over 11K of files containing Rootkits, LKM's and other goodies. Because of what I do most of the files are GNU/Linux related. (I run AV like a pentester would run metasploit against a networked entity.) I'm well aware of the AV-on-GNU/Linux-yes-or-no debate and this is not the place to go into that: search LQ or open up a thread if you need to discuss validity.

The commercial AV market is kind of an odd...

Joining records using sed or awk

Posted 07-01-2009 at 08:34 AM by JimRobinson

I have a very large file, 9 million records, and there are sections in the file where I need to join records. How can I get for example line number 100,000 and join to it lines 100,001-100,050 using sed or awk? The joins need to happen multiple times throughout the file. I can get the line number for the first and last line I need in my join but am having difficulty figuring out how to reformat the file with the lines joined and the file saved with the one end-resulting line.

Any...

And a measure of Wine to all...

Posted 06-29-2009 at 04:20 PM by Shingoshi

I'm going to raise the stakes here. What I'm about to say may rile some of you. But I really think it needs to be said, and attention given to this.

I believe it is counterproductive for the open-source community to become complacent in the imagination applied to the vision of what direction we should take with development. Given the fact that open-source software is under direct attack by proprietary systems (one in particular), I firmly believe emphasis needs to be given to counter...
