Lightbulb Confusified, forgotten thoughts... help!


[COLOR=dark red]Hey there, a while ago I asked for a free partitioner that could do VFAT. Someone said that it came with the linux cd. I stopped looking on this site for a while and I can't find the thread, so, could someone tell me if you can download the thing on the redhat CD DOWNLOAD.[/COLOR]

sfdisk or fdisk maybe? A partitioning program has nothing to do with the filesystem though.

I would, but...

I haven't partitioned yet, if I hadn't, why would I ask? I'd already have one!

yes on the install disks there will almost always be a partitioner with the distro.

you have to run it from the cd, if you just want to run it from the cmdline then you won't be able to do it from the disk, you will need cfdisk, fdisk, sfdisk, fips, floppsy, moppsy, and cotton tail.

cheers.

you're scaring me by saying that I can only run it by disk, if I don't, I'm not running by disk. well, confused or not, all I need now is to backup my music and stuff(don't tell anyone I do that, okay?*hides*)

Now that's a sentance that makes a lot of sense. Anybody willing to translate?

like the sig david, i should show you some code that an ./uninstall script has for it's removal .

burn your music to disk and then drop the install disk in and your set. that's all that you'll have to do.

cheers.

Cheers - what is it? From a disgruntled programmer who said if you don't like my software then so much for your system

basically, take a look-

echo -n "Do you really want to remove the Sentry Bulldog?[y|n] "
read answer
if [ $answer = "y" ]
then
pid=`/bin/cat $path/UPSD.PID 2> /dev/null`
# pid=`/bin/ps -e | grep upsd | cut -d" " -c1-5`
if [ "${pid}" != "" ]
then
kill -9 $pid
fi
rm -rf $path/*
rm -f $path/*
rm -f /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S98bulldogupsd
rm -f /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S98bulldogupsd
rm -f /usr/lib/libupshttp.so
rm -f /etc/upsd.path
echo
echo "Uninstallation complete."
echo
else
echo "Bye !"

don't you love how nice they are trying to be with the bye, that's exactly what will happen to your box.

i have to rewrite it so that people that i know with the ups' can use it. the rest of their program works wonderfully.

cheers.
