I am pretty new to Linux and any *buntu, but I have been wondering for sometime how to edit my command line history. I've spent some time looking for this answer but really found one line that go me close to my desired results.
history -d n
Where 'n' is the number in the history line where you wish to start deleting. But it would leave me with left over commands that I can't get rid of. Not because I don't want others to see them (although in the future this may be necessary) but for the fact that there are left over commands means it is not really editing.
I came across in a book I have. ISBN9780470082935
fc -e /usr/bin/nano/n
Where 'n' is again the three digit command that you wish to enter.
So I ran both in the order I've shown them here. While doing the fc command I set the first seven commands to some I use a lot so I could test that after saving the .bash_history file, the changes I made would be there after reboot. To my excitement
Video capture and editing on Solaris vs Debian vs Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 29, 2011
I am interested in doing some heavy video work. I have a ADVC 110 Video capture device, which I am using to capture VHS video tapes, which I will convert on the server to DVD format and burn to DVD's using DVD production software. I will also take the captured video file and split it up in parts and convert to other formats.
I will have a need to rip DVD video and encoding.
My question is for these tasks what setup do you suggest for the following.
The server that will be doing this work is:
HP Proliant DL-380 G4
Dual CPU's 3.20 ghz / 800 mhz / 1MB L2
5120 MB RAM
6 hard disks on HP Smart Array 6i controller (36.4 GB Ultra320 SCSI HD each)
RAID set to RAID 5 (5 discs) with one spare (6th disk)
USB, 2 Ethernet ports, 1 ILO port, 1 SCSI port
When it comes to the 6 disk raid I am setting up I was planning to use RAID-5 on 5 disks using the 6th disk as a spare. Do you think this will be to slow (due to the parity) since I will be doing so much video editing?

LGA 2011 vs LGA 1155 for photography/audio editing
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm wanting to build my own computer and I keep getting Windows users telling me I need to get an LGA 2011 over the 1155 version. Their reasoning is that the LGA 2011 is more processor intensive while the LGA 1155 relies more on your video card. The LGA 2011 also holds more RAM. I understand their reasoning if I was going to use Protools or Photoshop under Windows. Photoshop actually has a sweet spot of 4 cores.
Now then, what exactly would I need since I'll be using Ubuntu Studio? Keep in mind that I'll also be using Virtualbox and will need a processor that handles all virtualization. Let's keep the $$ out of all answers since I'm looking for something that will suit my needs for photo, audio, and Virtualbox. I find that people get all nervous and can't give honest opinions if they think something will be way out of budget. I will be getting at least 16GB RAM, an SSD for a boot drive, and a reg HDD for storage, both at 6GB/s SATA.

HOWTO: Editing /etc/hosts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 6, 2004
Here is a quick how to, to edit your /etc/hosts file.
The $ represents a line of code you may enter in a terminal.
Open /etc/hosts with your favorite text editor. Remember to use sudo.
<IP> <HOSTNAME>.<DOMAIN> <ALIAS>
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
Replace the <IP> with the IP of your system. If your running DHCP do not worry about editing this file. To detect your IP address run
Then browse for the connected interface (eth0, wlan0, etc)
Replace the <HOSTNAME> to your systems hostname.
To view current hostname:
To change hostname:
$ sudo hostname 'enterhostname'
The domain name can be anything you like unless it must be resolv, which then you must use /etc/resolv.conf. But thats another issue i'll cover later!
Alias are simply another way to combine a set of arguments. When you create
lamp won't run `.php` files was creating or editing on windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 20, 2013
When i create or edit some file like `index.php` with below simple content (on Windows) :
echo 'Hello world';
Now, I want to run it on Ubuntu by lamp-server. Copied that `index.php` file on `~/public_html/`.
Finally trying below in Browser :
I get following error:
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://localhost/home.php. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.
HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.
But if i create that `index.php` on ubuntu with same content it works fine.
It's some weird isn't it ?
editing iso images (mounting readwrite?)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 28, 2004
I need to change a few files on an iso image, while retaining the boot sector and all that other stuff that i don't understand. So basically, I need someone to tell me why "mount -o loop,rw image.iso folder/" doesn't work (mount reckons it's mounted rw, but "rm file" says ro filesystem).
Or I need someone to tell me how to create an iso from a set of folders, while retaining the important boot information from my original iso.
