LFS 8.3 Done

Posted Today at 02:08 PM by rsmereka

On Nov 10,

I completed my second LFS system on the same Asus G73JW-XT1 (ROG, laptop). It is also an i386, non-PAE, non-systemd build with no separate boot partition. I have turned this build into a LAMP server.

Here are my build notes:
Asus G75JW-XT1, i7 (740QM, 1.73GHZ, 8GB RAM, 1TB Seagate Momuments)
complete test LAMP server, no GUI, no wifi
i386, non PAE kernel
two partitions
20gb data /dev/sda1
4gb swap /dev/sda2

Tabbed xterm with suckless' "tabbed"

Posted 11-02-2018 at 10:40 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just found about it today.

Just by issuing it as such:

tabbed -c xterm -into

I found useful to add this to .bashrc:

cmdline="$(tr -d '\0' </proc/$PPID/cmdline)"
