I am a Debian software fan, no doubt about it. 1995 was the first year that I used GNU/Linux software, (1982 was my UNIX software debut), so when I wanted to spread out, Debian was one of the first areas I read about that would probably satisfy my software itch, and indeed it did.

In 2001, I had a broadband network, but I was not yet burning my own CDs. In fact, I took a few years before I got to that point. My first Linux systems were ones that I bought, either in books or in...

How did we live before the internet?

This isn't so much about Linux today as about the internet. Just yesterday I had one of those moments where I wondered how I ever got through life when there was no internet.

Last November I decided to take up learning Russian. I went for the traditional approach first, got myself a couple of books for self-teaching and took off. Only the books wouldn't get me very far, and they did not quite fit my style of learning, which is more geared towards immersion and using a language rather...

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.

problem installing fortran77 on suse11

Posted 02-20-2009 at 04:50 PM by minaesm

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...
