Some interesting 'powercommands' in linux (i didnt know any of them)

Posted 12-22-2005 at 05:35 AM by carl0ski

I felt the need to read through a big book about Bash commands so far here are some of my favourites

Alias command : allows assigning a long line of commands to a short phrase (alias shortcut='lengthycommand')

bittorrent-curses --maxport 6666 --minport 7777 --maxuploadrate 10 (a pain in the but to type)
but 'bit' isnt

#alias bit='bittorrent-curses --maxport 6666 --minport 7777 --maxuploadrate 10'
#bit suse.torrent
is now the same...

Posted 12-22-2005 at 12:58 AM by smsundar

I am Trying to install a 2.4 kernel in my 2.6 kernel machine.
I have down loaded kernel-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.i686.rpm.
when i give my command rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.i686.rpm
it says
warning: kernel-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
kernel < 0:2.6 conflicts with udev-039-8.FC3.i386

What is the prob and how to solve?

Randomness - One more day!!!

Posted 12-21-2005 at 05:23 PM by microsoft/linux

One more day of school until Winter Vacation(or christmas break, or whatever you want to call it). I'm ecstatic(spelling?). Not that I don't like school....well, alright, I don't like school very much, but that's not the point. I get to stay home, and sleep in almost all the time. I can snowboard 2 or 3 times over vacation, there's presents(like I said, it's christmas break) and family. What more can you ask for(besides world peace, I don't think that's one of the benefits of Winter Vacation)?...
