    Re: HOWTO: Kernel compilation

    Nice howto. A major problem though: after following all the steps and booting into my new kernel, nothing happens. Ie: I click the new kernel in grub and then the screen just goes blank. Any ideas?

    Well if you format the entire drive you'll have to reinstall GRUB into the MBR, but this will happen anyway when you reinstall Ubuntu. After you resintall Ubuntu, if you then restore from your backup...

    Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!

    The way I do it (so that you don't have to remake any directories):

    Boot up off a live cd. Mount hda2 (my main partition).

    type from anywhere: sudo tar cvzf /mnt/hda2/07052005.tgz /mnt/hda2/...

    Re: HOWTO: avoid having to reboot!

    Same things happens to me on my laptop.

    sudo modprobe -r ipw2200
    sudo modprobe ipw2200
    sudo dhclient eth1 (or whatever your interface is called)

    fixes it though.

    I don't think it's neccessary to be a C++ expert before having some fun with it. Could you just tell me the code I need?

    Haha I found it! After hours of searching... http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?t=27714

    No dice; it still waits for enter.

    I did find this though: http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi?answer=1045691686&id=1043284392

  11. Re: C question: how do I have a function operate for 10 seconds

    :) So lets say I broke down and used c++....

    [To build a c++ program, I just type 'g++ program.c' instead of 'cc program.c' - right?]
  12. Re: C question: how do I have a function operate for 10 seconds

    Oooh that's really cool. My way worked fine but your version is alot cleaner and skips unneccessary steps (using the difftime function). Thanks alot!
  13. C question: How do you accept an input before enter is pressed

    Normally using scanf, when a user inputs a character, C doesn't register the fact until after they also press enter.

    Is there a way to register the keypress immediatly?

    Thanks in advance.
  14. Re: C question: how do I have a function operate for 10 seconds

    Hmmm, I actually came up with this based on http://www.cplusplus.com/ref/ctime/:



    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>

    int main ()
    {
    long seconds = time(NULL), timeUp = seconds + 10;
  15. C question: how do I have a function operate for 10 seconds [solved]

    I wanna write a function to count how many times I press spacebar in 10 seconds. Is there a timer function or something that I can use? (I'm a C newbie).

    I'm guessing it would go along the lines...

    I don't know if this is the place for it, but how would I go about installing those files myself, and also is it dangerous to use those deb files with k/ubuntu?
