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

Posted 12-22-2005 at 06:35 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

Fedora Core 4 (New Meaning to Dependancy hell)

Posted 12-20-2005 at 07:15 PM by carl0ski

i want to do something very simple
but fedora makes it rediculously difficult,
in a sense almost working against me.

i want to install this rpm

dependancy hell is the result (i actually thought someone made this up since Mandrake never had it)

Yum is flakey at best it lacks, speed efficiency and user friendliness.
yum install
yum localinstall
refuse to install it

Today URPMI S$%# itself and Fedora X86_64 DVD just happened to around. Good Idea??

Posted 12-20-2005 at 06:21 AM by carl0ski

The lesson i learned today is dont delete the entire /var cache directory
apparently it causes problems

To fix it i was going to quickly use mandriva repair/update

but Fedora was sitting there staring at me.

Am i happy?
not so far
Fedora core 4
1. come with KDE 3.4.0 (bit outdated and .0 isnt ever a favoured version)
2. Install took a very long time 30mins (equililent install in Mandriva x86_64 is 15mins)...
