    Re: hacking and cracking

    I've found the writeup in the Jargon File to be the most informative and definitive answer. However, these to me are dictionary definitions, and we all know that in speech words are often stretched...
  2. Thread: out of space

    Re: out of space

    Seems there's a lot more on root that is taking space and might be able to be cleared. You can try running this command starting from the root directory:

    sudo du -hsx * | sort -rh | head -10...

    Wow! Thanks so much guys! I have been thinking the same thing these days, that I would love to show some love to those that put together some nice, helpful explanation, and something like this...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Unable to create data directory /----: error creating directory: No space on devi

    Just to add to The Cog's excellent advice, I also like to add a sort to the du command in order to see the bigfiles at the top (in fact, I usually make an alias called 'bigfiles' with this command):...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: unable to 'git push' to my github account(using First time)

    I thought the major difference between the free account and the paid account was the ability to have private repositories. IIRC, only the paid account allow for private repos, while the free...
  6. Re: (linux noob) How to store steam games on different partition?

    How do you have your external HDD mounted (i.e. what is the fstab entry)? Assuming you have it mounted to a location in /media, it should be fairly straightfoward from there. I think the easiest...
  7. Re: (linux noob) How to store steam games on different partition?

    I have not yet tried this yet (have to do it soon, though as I'm nearly out of space!), but I think you can do this by changing the 'Content Libraries' directory in the Steam settings menu. From the...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: perl script not recognize standard shell commands

    For portability with such things, you might try File::Copy. It's a core module that I'm pretty sure works well under Windows and handles a lot of the OS specific directory structure stuff (I don't...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: perl script not recognize standard shell commands

    The problem is the use of quotes with backticks. If you want to run a system command with backticks you don't need to use the quotation marks in there. The correct script should be:

  10. Re: Portal 2 Looks Set To Drop On Linux With A Beta

    Cool! Thanks for the heads up on this. I downloaded it, fired it up, and played a few levels. It runs just as smoothly and crisp as on my Windows install. Excellent. The only thing missing is...
  11. Re: bash script for execute all the files from the folder

    I had a look at the ALIZE program, and it seems very complex. I'm not entirely sure how to use it without reading a lot of documentation. How would you process one file at a time?

    It almost...
  12. Re: bash script for execute all the files from the folder

    How are you generating the .prm files from the .wav files? From what you posted, I think the simple solution is to use a for loop to iterate through all of the files you want to process. So,...
  13. Re: using bash to make a list of movie files with mediainfo

    I had a few minutes to play around tonight, and since I know I probably won't be able to touch this again for a while with upcoming stuff this week, thought I would add a rudimentary recursive...
  14. Re: using bash to make a list of movie files with mediainfo

    First, to sort by date is relatively easy enough to do within the script. I modified the original, adding a new command line option and new subroutine to sort the output data. By using the '-s'...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Difference between locate --regex and find -regex

    The problem is the regex engine that find uses compared to locate. From the man pages for find (specifically the 'regextype' option):

    I'm not at all a regex master and really only know perl...
  16. Re: using bash to make a list of movie files with mediainfo

    This is not in bash, but since we're having a snow day today and I'm a bit bored - plus this seemed like a fun excersise - I wrote a perl script to do what you want. The script will read in a list...

    Re: Installing heasoft: "not a valid identifier"

    From just quickly scanning the instructions, my interpretation is that the command you're trying to run is actually two commands, one after the other. What happens if you run this:

    A bit late to the party, but in case the OP is still reading this, thought I would offer a suggestion. What you seem to be working with is a VCF file. It may be a lot easier to parse the file with...

    Re: where did all my space go?

    It looks like you ran that command from /var, and not /var/log. Try this:
