    Re: Amazon, Ubuntu, and ethical standards

    I'm actually from a country bordering Germany and I very much respect Germans and German culture. In fact, I visit that country about every month mostly for recreation and live only 35min driving...

    Poll: Re: How old is your main home PC in 2013

    My laptop is 4 years old, and my pc 6 years. And I must say the switch from windows to Ubuntu about 7 years ago definately contributed to this as it just doesn't seem to get as slow over time...
  6. Re: What is the best way in C to check wheter a system is up

    Great idea, thank you. This way it's much more elegant and efficient than turning the program into some kind of script that executes all sorts of other programs.

    I've now made it like this (in...
  7. Re: How to hide damage and avoid ensuing rancour?

    I would say honesty is a must. Furthermore, calling him now is probably better for your own peace of mind, but at the same time somewhat impersonal because you can't see face impressions.

  8. What is the best way in C to check wheter a system is up

    I'm making a daemon to control the lights in my living room. Based on the time of day it needs to adjust the light settings. Among other things, if the TV (which is on the network) is on I wan't more...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Building old kernel headers for cross compiler

    I fixed it. The solution was actually very simple, I had to comiple eglibc with the correct --enable-kernel option. It needs to be lower than or equal to the kernel of the system it needs to run on....
  10. [SOLVED] Building old kernel headers for cross compiler

  12. [all variants] Re: How to prevent smbclient from preventing NAS hibernation

    I've now written a simple script started by cron every 10 minutes that checks whether there are any users logged on to the system, and if that's not the case, checks whether the shares on the NAS are...
  13. [all variants] How to prevent smbclient from preventing NAS hibernation

    I notice that my NAS is no longer hybernating when I have Samba shares mounted from my server. Even when it is not accessing the mount, it is doing 'something' every minute.

    Well, adding the "." at the end isn't that much of a problem, and it actually works well I suppoze. It just seems a bit silly that it is neccesary, and I don't understand why it somewtimes won't and...

    [ubuntu] Re: are .tar safe for storage?

    The compressing part was for efficiency, not for safety. On the other hand, if compressing results in - say - a 2/3rd reduction in size, it would be less space consuming to keep a few backups (on...

    It would be safer and more efficient to use gzip or bzip2, and then use par2 to create a parity file that you can use to recover the lost data if parts of the file have been corrupted.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to browse squirrelmail on domain

    This seems like a DNS problem. Your primary DNS server is your ISP's, and apparently that one doesn't even know your website. This implies your website can't be reached from the outside world either....
