CIDR to Netmask conversion with Python (convert short netmask to long, dotted format)

Posted 09-03-2010 at 05:43 AM by bittner (Notes on Linux)

When you write scripts dealing with setting up or analyzing network interfaces you will eventually run into the task of converting a netmask from one format into another.

Typically, the setup of an ethernet TCP/IP network interface consists of an IP address, a netmask, and a broadcast address. Unfortunately for you as a novice, the two tools ifconfig and ip show the same (or similar) information in a different format.

Something a little less "deep", and more "practical" (well, to me at least)

Sometimes when I see someone watching an HD video with the embedded (*shudder*) Flash player on a website, I just want to say someting like, "Do you have any idea how many CPU cycles are being burned up just to play that video??".

If I want to watch a video on YouTube (or some other video-hosting website) that offers a higher vertical resolution than 480p, I use my fancy little DownloadHelper FF plugin and just download it. Then I can play it with GNOME MPlayer, which has...

Fix to slow internet in Ubuntu

Posted 07-19-2010 at 09:10 AM by WantLinuxHelp
Updated 07-19-2010 at 09:19 AM by WantLinuxHelp

I have been having slow internet response times for a while with Firefox under Ubuntu. I think there are probably multiple reasons here. First, the recent memory leak fixes in Firefox seem to work in Windows, but it still seems to leak in Ubuntu. Second, I’ve read in some forums that IPv6 might be a contributing factor........

OMFG What a NOOB am I!!!
Today I've occasionally discovered what does 'lm' flag from /proc/cpuinfo mean... I've been using my AMD Sempron 3000+ cpu for already 4 years and had no clue it can handle 64-bit! ahahahah omfg I'm such a noob...
Actually, I was looking for a way to test powersaving features of CPU, I'm buying a new laptop for my mom, and the laptop has no pre-installed OS on it, so I needed a way to test powersaving features. Gentoo livecd fits that needs well. And while...

Linux Community: A Change in Ideology

Posted 07-04-2010 at 02:31 AM by jay_pablo_69

Greetings,

I'm not used to long speeches and long starts so I'll just hit it straight....

It's so nice that over the past few months (a year or two) the mindset/ideology of Linux users and the Linux community has undergone a drastic change and has taken a turn for the better. I remember when I was trying to decide whether or not not move from MS (Microsoft) Windows and which Linux distro to choose, this was few few months ago (I haven't really moved completely to Linux,
