Arch Linux forum registration


I am trying to register with this forum. At the bottom of the form, there is a question:

What is the output of "date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?

I have no idea what the answer is. Can someone help me with this? I am taking the plunge and am going to learn how to install Arch Linux. I have the beginner's guide so I will be following it religiously on my quest, but first I need to become a member of the Arch Linux forum.

Execute the command in a terminal and see what the answer is.

This is what I get:


randy@randyzorin:~$ date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g
>



randy@randyzorin:~$ "date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"
bash: date -u +%WLinux|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g': No such file or directory
randy@randyzorin:~$

When I enter the command:

Quote:
date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'
I get the following:

Quote:
b767e3bd870dbdf1a06d1a90e059f490ad024936c5424cd01ada2df947d4783b
In your first example (post # 3) you dropped the single quote at the end. In the second example, you included the double-quotes which are not part of the command.

What yancek said, you're not issuing the command correctly. I also get the same answer....so should you. Or, I guess, you could use the result from yancek's post to join the Arch forums.
