    [ubuntu] Re: Run (Register) Mathematica 8

    With a working installation, I produced the following configuration file. Try placing the following in ~/.Mathematica/FrontEnd/init.m - that should prevent the registration dialog from appearing at...
  2. Multiwan complexities on any Debian based system.

    Two interfaces:
    eth1: Typical ethernet interface connected to DD-WRT router.
    wlan0: WiFi card using b43 driver.

    The WiFi card will be use sporadically with DHCP. All of the multiwan scripts seem...
  3. [all variants] Re: Hard disk activity slows access to other disks.

    Thanks for the reply!
    CPU load is practically nonexistant (<5%). However, I haven't found a way to monitor IOWait cycles.

    Also, my bios (780i) provides no IDE emulation mode. I'd guess its in...
  4. [all variants] Re: Hard disk activity slows access to other disks.

    *BUMP*
    The problem is still not solved. While ionice can stop an unruly program from completely hosing the system now, disk access should not affect other disks.
  5. [all variants] Re: Hard disk activity slows access to other disks.

    I believe that applies to RAID, which I don't use.

    Actually, the problem does seem like excessive cached memory, as VM speed at running DBAN picks up after a reboot, and swap is being used...
  6. [all variants] Hard disk activity slows access to other disks.

    Basically, whenever I heavily use a disk, access to all disks slows down, as if all disks were the same. This includes filesystem usage, access to hard disk device files, VM disk usage, etc. Here are...

    [all variants] Re: No-Swap Secure Bash Variables

    1) I am aware of the cold boot RAM issue. However, due to its fast read/write speed, its not that hard to wipe ram, and there are tools to do so. TrueCrypt itself knows to to this unless you pull the...

    [all variants] Re: No-Swap Secure Bash Variables

    The interaction is typing the password. My concerns are that:
    1) If the password is sent through command line, it will be part of the process list, and its name may end up in swap space or a log...

    [all variants] No-Swap Secure Bash Variables

    I'm thinking of using TrueCrypt on my storage disks. However, I want to mount my TrueCrypt volumes securely by script. Specifically, I don't want my password paged out into swap somehow. Is there a...

    Re: mswinurl - Those URL files from WinDozer

    Great idea! I've been hunting for the tool to use KDE associations from the command line for weeks! Thanks! :biggrin:

    Re: mswinurl - Those URL files from WinDozer

    I saw that one... that was the thread that made me think no one was using this little script. (I posted there)

    Thanks for the reply, glad to know it was useful :D.
  12. Re: Private image clipboards, OS interoperability, rdesktop, and shell glue.

    Yes, you're right - I just realized that you could send commands through ssh by placing the desired command afterwards like this:


    ssh user@site.com "echo test ; echo test2"

    I should have...

    Has anyone else actually used this? :confused:
  14. Floppy Disk Daemon - Completely automated mounting/umounting of floppies.

    I've tried /etc/fstab, KDE's enable/disable mount point, and fdmount -d. All of these were unreliable at best, and fdmount -d only seemed to work when the sun was out.

    To fix this, I wrote my own...
  15. Private image clipboards, OS interoperability, rdesktop, and shell glue.

    I moved to Linux mainly to take advantage of Metisse (I can't stand oversized windows taking up all my space). Since then I have used VMWare Server, rdesktop, and some shell glue to translate...

    mswinurl - Those URL files from WinDozer

    I have a huge number of .URL files on my drive since I have never used bookmarking... its so much more efficient to drop links into folders, and far more flexible.

    Unfortunately, GNOME uses a...
