Linux From Scratch rebuildathon: 64-bit edition.

Posted 02-21-2009 at 09:24 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

Every year or so, after the last variation of LFS was wiped from the system (it's just something I do for fun, so I do not keep important files on the partition I am building it on), I decide to rebuild Linux From Scratch so I can try to force education on my ignorant self. The main reason why I wipe LFS is because of problems that prop up from time to time and my lack of motivation to solve them (mostly something to do with GNOME, so I am going to avoid using it this time around).

How to generate password

Posted 02-21-2009 at 08:56 AM by ErV

Generating password is simple:
cat /dev/urandom| tr -dc '0-9a-zA-Z!@#$%^&*_+-'|head -c 8;echo
This script generates 8 characters long password.
To change number of characters, replace 8 with other number.
'0-9a-zA-Z!@#$%^&*_+-' defines character set used in password. If you need another charset, change this string to suit your needs.

Have you installed both the fftw and fftw-devel packages? Check where the include files and libraries have been installed:
$ rpm -ql fftw-devel | grep include
$ rpm -ql fftw-devel | grep lib
then try to specify the correct path using the environment variable LDFLAGS and CPPFLAGS as suggested. For example:
$ export LDFLAGS='-L/usr/lib'
$ export CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/include'
$ ./configure
You don't really need to export these variables if the include files...

Ubuntu 9.10: Karmic Koala

Posted 02-20-2009 at 03:02 PM by jkzfixme

So it seams as if a new weapon in the Linux arsenal is in the mix. Mark Shuttleworth announced the development today Fri Feb 20 16:40:36 GMT 2009. The jist of the announcement appears to be that they are focusing on cloud computing as well as a strong emphasis optimizing for netbooks, as articulated in this statement. "It only takes 35 days to make a whole Koala, so we think it should be possible to bring up a stylish desktop much faster. The goal for Jaunty on a netbook is 25 seconds, so let's...
