Changes to Changes

Posted 03-08-2009 at 05:47 AM by brianL

Changed my mind about trying newer versions of previously tried distros (Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuse, etc). They didn't grab me then, so it's unlikely they will now. I'll keep using Debian, for the contrast it offers to Slackware. I will try Arch, Gentoo, and LFS + BLFS. And I still want a desktop with more all-round clout.

telnet into a device in /dev

You'll have to set the baud rate, parity, etc., but that's worked for me in the past, for similar situations.
Thanks that seems to be working.

Web design.

Posted 03-07-2009 at 03:43 PM by nenpa8lo

Recently I have started to learn webdesign - and amount of languages that I have to gather is scarry. HTML, XML, PHP, JS next mySQL queries and also would be nice to know AJAX and.... That is enough. Why this could not be simpler? One language, one standard and lets keep moving.

Distribution confusion

Posted 03-06-2009 at 07:54 PM by Indymaynard

Recently, I had to make a tough decision. Every Linux user will face this particular decision at least once whether they know it or not. I guess that the hardest part about it was that I didn't know if my choice would be good or bad. Even more frustrating was the fact that I believe that no one should have to face this choice.

For at least four years, Fedora has been my distribution of choice. It began when I tried Red Hat 9 for the first time. Honestly, my first experience was terrible...

svn delete huge tree but leave modified files

Posted 03-06-2009 at 04:31 PM by ciotog

In one of our projects at work, the entire kernel source tree was added to an svn repository. I needed a simple way to delete all the files that were unchanged from the original source, and came up with the following:
diff -r -s kernel/linux-2.6.12 src/kernel-2.6 | grep identical | perl -e 'while (<>) { ($Files, $fname) = split ; `svn del $fname` };'
Confession: yes, I was the one that added the kernel source
