  1. http://xkcd.com/424/ sometimes the XKCD guys hit the nail on the head..
  2. It's hard to believe that I have been chatting with Hitest, shannan and some of the others for over 4 years now.. This is the only site I go to now, Leoville became full of trolls, it was hard to not tell people off. what happen to Uberpenguin?
  3. I have an issue on a server where a samba share keeps dropping but mount shows that it is there, but df will show that it is not I create a script check=`df|grep /dev/sda5|wc -l` if [ $check -ne 0 ] then echo "sda2 is there" else echo "sda2 is not there" fi this is the basic outline.. is there a better way? (note I do not have the same share on this workstation so I substatuted a device I know would show up)
  4. ---EDIT-- Sorry missread.. you are right.. I did not keep the structure and I missed that whole part this will keep the structure and place the files in a nice tgz for backup and restore find /home/huskeyw -name "*.gif" -print0 | xargs -0t tar --no-recursion -PSczf /tmp/find/gif.tgz you could untar it right after to get the same output, but its not one command find /home/huskeyw -name "*.gif" -print0 | xargs -0t tar --no-recursion -PSczf /tmp/find/gif.tgz;cd /tmp/find/;tar zxvf gif.tgz hope this helps someone. I left the original post so you can see what I was thinking.. also to point out.. th
  5. at work we have contest to see who can make a script smaller. the ideal is to take a working multi line script or set of commands and make it as small as possible here is a one liner for the mp3 move find $SOURCEFOLDER -name "*.mp3" -exec cp {} $DESTINATION \; if you are at the root of your home folder put a . for the source folder to get all mp3 files no matter where in home they may be.
  6. you did turn off anti-virus when installing ( I know, you would think that the only OS in the world to inflicted with a huge majority of viruses would know how to install thing with the protection on... but they don't )
  7. need more information video card type and the what are the two monitors.. I have seen this happen when the resolution chosen for the second monitor is incorrect. choose a low resolution for the second monitor then try again.. then if that works, increase it by one setting until it stops working. then you will know the max resolution that both the monitor and video card will do together. just because a video card can put out a resolution and the monitor can accept the resolution, it does not mean in dual monitor mode the card can put out a signal the monitor will like at that resolution.
  8. you may be able to hack this to do what you need. you need some C# skills or any c language and an ability to code. I think you have to sign up at the code project to download code? sharpdevelop is a great IDE for .NET...
  9. or use something like openVPN to create a tunnel and routing gateway for your VNC connection. as for VNC not working at all on VISTA, I have realVNC working with the video driver and using Chicken of the VNC for Mac to connect. try rdesktop.. it works a little better for windows.. unless you need to see someone elses login.
  10. you could create a script with wget.. but this would work if you knew what you were looking for.. with directory listing turned off, you can not just list the contents of a directory on a web server.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webserver_directory_index
  11. having problem with the build from svn attached is the tee of the make build.txt
  12. ko, I am getting the source tree, it seams that libjingle was made part of the main brach, when I have it tested and done I will create a .deb so you can use apt to install, I will need tester to make sure I did not introduce non standard Ubuntu libs..
  13. ok, why not use the google talk gadget? http://www.google.com/talk/otherclients.html this seams to work with my ubuntu out of the box and no software to install, you loose voice calls to other users, but you only get that if you gave the Google talk client and Google only made that work with windows. I find it strange that they limited the gadget, its there choice, they could have made it do all the same things.. Sorry jeff, after looking this up I don't not see how this is a linux issues.. The issue with PSI is just bad packaging, that a lot of, and I mean a lot of projects are guilty of. ju
  14. X has always been a issue on the desktop, this effects not just linux, but BSD and other UNIX flavors. I am waiting on Red Hat/IBM/HP to fix the issues, but they want to stay away from the desktop, and the head on with microsoft, and compete with the server side where MS is not as deep. This is also why LDAP and Fedora directory sever is so hard to use. they have it to have something, but don't bother competing with AD.
  15. LOL, That happens to me all the time in windows.. I have seen ubuntu completely lockup, but I have yet to lock my Gentoo box once unless I do a kernel Panic.. the thread is down for maintenance.. so I'll look at it tonight.. what did you do for dual monitor this time? I should be home in the next hour, go to the gym, put kids in bead.. I'll find you an answer, but I don't miss the point that me looking for answers makes this any better for you. but I'll give you a story that may help the frustration if you think about it.. my wife who has used nothing but windows for, well lets says si
  16. I found that dual monitors works great with DVI monitors. no editing just use the gui and set it, you have to restart X (ctrl-alt-backspace if your like me or logout if you need to do it correctly) VGA monitors I had lots of issues, but they turned out to be the profiles for the monitors were wrong.. also different size monitors is an issue.. for those instead of doing xenarama I had it do a new server on each screen, you can't drag apps from one screen to the next, but you can start them on the different screens.. what were the problems with Google talk? I have not tested it, but I am thin
  17. plus even with CSS do you not need something to read the xml file? like PHP, JAVA ect? I use Ruby it seams fast, and it uses zero xml also how do you get faster then strait HTML?
  18. I believe that issue has been fixed. I have been running 7.10 for a while now and with no changes, I have not seen the issue. it was with Hitachi drives, and I did not understand it much, Hitachi stated that the drives would be damaged, but powersave was using the setting in the FW of the Hitachi drive.. so it was there drives that had the issue... http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=381...p;postcount=489
  19. I remember doing this in solars (and sun OS), but I could not even begin to know how to do this for windows. I guess you can use linux... here is a how to http://martybugs.net/linux/image.cgi ackup the Partition Table To backup the partition table to a file, we can use dd as follows: dd if=/dev/hda of=/mnt/hdc1/my-hda.mbr count=1 bs=512 Linux treats a filesystem or a partition as a file, and the syntax above specifies the input file to be the /dev/hda partition, and the output file is a file on our target HDD. The other parameters specify that only a single block should be copied, and we're
  20. sorry, unless someone else has an answer, you can also try the windows forum.. they are also smart.. its a shame the NTFS schema is so undocumented.. it has taken years just to read and write to it. there are some recovery tools that should allow you to grab data off the disk, but since I normally just wipe and forget..
  21. thanks.. getops is a good example.. now back to work
  22. we like noob's ok.. forget the Virtual machine part, on latter look it seams that only VMware workstation lets you mount a real drive... so if you have another windows box, then a great tool all computer people need is a IDE or sata to usb adaptor since you have sata drives this is my favourite http://www.crazypc.com/products/blacx-95470.html plug in the adaptor into the other machine, and plug in the hardrive. windows should see the drive if not.. then you how important is the data on the drive? Note: you do not need to worry about virus on a second drive if you do not run any software from
  23. I know how to take strait arguments into C# but I am writing a console application that I would like to add agrumnets like -f or -F and a space then the agrgument so it would look like a good unix command example command mydile.txt -p C:\user\username -l my thought is to treat the flag as an argument then read the next one for the value .. but I am not sure if there is a better way, as I can see this getting complex.. depending on how much the tool can do..
  24. it looks like you have some disk errror. the bad news is that you need to chkdisk from a windows (same version that formated) this is because NTFS is not documented from microsoft and all of the Linux drivers are created by hacking the drive.. now you can use vmware or virtual box to host the windows and tell it that its disk is a real partition.. you can for fun run ntfsfix on /dev/sda1 and on /dev/sda2
  25. it should run like this stevelinux ~ # fdisk -l /dev/hda Disk /dev/hda: 30.7 GB, 30750031872 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3738 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 10 80293+ 83 Linux /dev/hda2 11 141 1052257+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/hda3 142 3738 28892902+ 83 Linux stevelinux ~ # but yours would be sda not hda
