Forum Etiquette & Standards
All Philosophy --- All The Time, Folks.
Is there really a way to know how long or how much research a person should perform before coming to this or any other forum and asking for help?
I'm posting this here, because, I'm in my 6th decade and don't want to spend a great deal of time on something as simple as this, below. And I should have been able to find a useful example before 30 minutes of time went by. But, I couldn't.
I have a desktop computer with 12.04 LTS (thank you very much) and I have a Raspberry PI with RaspBMC. I have to copy a file named: dvbhdhomerun into the PI's /etc sub-directory folder from my /home/mark/Desktop/pinetwork
I have tried:
pi@raspbmc:/$ scp /home/mark/Desktop/pinetwork/dvbhdhomerun pi@raspbmc /etc
and a few other permutations. I'm outta luck and outta time. I'm guessing that I need the partition name that /etc sits in but have no way to find that without another 30 minutes or so. So, here is the problem:
How many hours of searching go into using a command? This is likely to be a command I will use only once, as after the PI/RaspBMC has this file in it's /etc, the webgui for TVHeadEnd will work, and I will have no reason to use the ssh again. Not for a long time with luck.
Just Sayin' - Mostly a Philsophical Query.
