First LQ Blog

Posted 10-14-2008 at 09:42 PM by IsharaComix

I tried putting up a blog earlier, but for some reason it didn't work. So I'll try again, just because Linux makes me want to start typing. This isn't one of those technical blogs I've been seeing in the bloglist, it's just a rambling blog for the heck of it.

I came to college with nothing more than 27 hours of AP credits and a dream to work at RedHat as an intern. Ever since I started, I've been downloading a Linux distro just about every week. I decided that getting QEMU would be...

Flimp - Graphical frontend for Command Line Image Manipulation tools

Posted 10-14-2008 at 04:56 PM by rbkumaran

flimp is a generic graphical frontend to the many excellent command line image manipulation tools available. It allows you to create pipelines of commands that read from standard input and write to standard output. One can view and compare the result of each stage of the pipeline. flimp leaves the input image file untouched; the pipeline is saved in a text file.

Setting udev permission for raw host disk access by virtualbox machine.

Posted 10-14-2008 at 09:02 AM by dr_agon

applies to: linux, udev, permissions, device node, virtualbox


To allow raw host disk access by guest machine on VirtualBox the user must have read-write permission to all partitions which are to be accessed. You can do this by something like
Code:
sudo chmod a+rw /dev/sda7

How to remove selected messages left on the POP3 server.

Posted 10-13-2008 at 04:46 PM by dr_agon

applies to: KMail, Evolution, Perl, POP3, mail client

Unfortunatelly my favourite mail client (Kmail) cannot leave messages on the POP3 server while retrieving them and delete them later, eg. when they are moved to 'Trash" folder (like Thunderbird). The same applies to Evolution. Of course I know there are IMAP servers, but that's not the solution I like most. I also did not want to periodically erase all messages left on POP3 server. I did not find any reasonable solution, so...
