What is "Segmentation Fault" ?

Posted 04-09-2009 at 02:47 AM by mcvasant
Updated 04-09-2009 at 02:52 AM by mcvasant

When I play "vlc" from command prompt in Mandriva 2009 Free, I mean

localhost$ vlc

I get a message that it cannot be played and there's some Segmentation Fault and that I should try "cvlc".
And it works with cvlc.

What is the difference in vlc and cvlc?
And what is meant by Segmentation Fault?

My touchpad doesn't work in FC9

Posted 04-09-2009 at 02:41 AM by mcvasant

I've installed Fedora 9 on my Acer Aspire 5570 laptop.
My synaptics touchpad doesn't work in it. I mean, the mouse pointer moves when I move my finger on the pad but it doesn't click when I tap on it.
What should I do to make it work?

First of all, credit where credit is due. I shamelessly mixed and matched from my Debian files, the ZSH wiki, and various other bits.

ZSH is a shell with incredible autocompletion. Here's a good intro. If you install ZSH, you'll no doubt want to make a test burn. Copy/paste the following files. Make a few changes; then open a terminal or switch to a console (and login as you normally would). Type:
Code:
exec zsh
Once you discover that you've been working for the dark side...

Here we go. I don't know how much I have to offer, but I enjoy writing and tinkering with operating systems. I tend to do a lot of research when I hit problems, and having learned not to reinvent the wheel, I also write my solutions down. I try to keep them succinct and to the point, but I have fun writing them as well. Hopefully I will find the time to consistently put these solutions here, and hopefully they will actually be useful.
