One common problem with the default settings of bash or the defaults settings of your bash_profile ~/.bashrc is the bash_history. When you logout from your shell all the commands you entered there are writteen to the bash_history. Hmmm what happens when you logout from 2 or more shells ? Yes the last history list is […]
My main problem all the time is that i have small capacities on hard disks (8GB,10GB) and so on. I don’t want to throw them away but i don’t want also to leave them lying around. This time i did an exception: i bought a big one, a Western Digital WDC WD2000JB (200GB) plus this […]
I am a fun of reiserfs. Period. The only filesystem i had without reiserfs was on my laptop. 20GB of data on ext3. I wanted to converted to reiserfs without doing a tar create a new filesystem on the disk and untar the data. Since i had a working backup set, i give a try […]
Debian team released the new installer for the etch. It appers that the next time (in about 1-2 years 🙂 that you will install Debian you will have a graphical version of the installer. For the rest of us, an apt-get dist-upgrade will be sufficient 🙂 Also they dropped support for installations using 2.6 kernel […]

I came across with a really nice utility for debian. It is the deborphan. What it does ? It looks for orphaned libraries in your debian system. That is library packages that you no longer use. Give it a try [url]http://packages.debian.org/stable/admin/deborphan[/url]

I am using the Talisman firmware on my WRT54GS for about 2 months. The last 2 days i was having problems with the connection to the internet. I am not sure that it was a problem with my adsl provider but i could connect at all 🙂 On the dmesg i was seeing messages like […]
What i hate after upgrading a kernel ? Compile all your modules that there are not part of the main stream kernel. If you use a custom kernel is easy. But if you want to stick for a reason with a prepackaged kernel sometimes is difficult. The debian way = Allways build a package for […]

The machine that holds my blog, holds also everything for my domain 🙂 It was running fedora core 3 and it hasn’t been switched to Debian sarge (yet ?) due to the reason above. After the release of Fedora Core 4 i had 2 options: Download the CDs and use them for the upgrade or […]
Finally after 3 years the new debian sarge waits for us in the mirrors. For as that we were using testing upgrading is simple: Change the sources.list to point to sarge instead of testing and do aptitude update && aptitude -f –with-recommends dist-upgrade. I had allready done it when the sarge was frozen last week […]

[url]http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/03/14/debian_reduced/[/url] Could somebody please explain me what i i will run on my sparc machines (beside Solaris of course) ? Let’s hope that they will reconsider it again….
Or maybe it is 220.127.116.11, or it is 18.104.22.168 or it is 22.214.171.124 ? Edit: 14/05/2004 I think today they desided that the latest 2.6 kernel is the 126.96.36.199 🙂 I was thinking to upgrade my machines…. NO, I will stay with the 2.6.10. Read why… [url]http://kerneltrap.org/node/4827[/url] Remember the kernel numbering has changed…. The *.x.y […]
