Suse 9 how to aptget with yast???
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 5, 2004
Well this, is a very basic question (I guess) i believe I already
know the answer but anyway, does anyone knows how to
make suse 9.0 install programs and another things from the internet
I have been trying to install a couple of things, but i am getting kinnda
mad when i am asked to install more and more things, but, i believe
its possible to make in the installation source a new installation source
with a http addres or a ftp address but, when i try some of the ones that
yast already uses for updates it just doesnt work, and doesnt let me install
from the internet,
In other ways, what i am asking is, that if its possible to make yast work like apt-get or something like that????
[SOLVED] MySQL backup how to deal with large amounts of data?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 15, 2011
Hopefully someone can give me some good advice on this:
I help run a couple of Internet forums and recently we've been trying to become a bit more serious about backup. It seems the better way to do MySQL backup is to use the binlog. However, that binlog is huge! We seem to produce something like 10Gb per month.
I'd like to copy the backup to somewhere off the server as I don't feel like there is much to be gained by just copying it to somewhere else on the server. I recently made a full backup which after compression amounted to 2.5Gb and took me 6.5 hours to copy to my own computer ... So that solution doesn't seem practical for the binlog backup.
Any ideas? Should we rent another server somewhere? Is it possible to find a server like that really cheap? Or is there some other solution? What are other people's MySQL backup practices?
how to deal with a path containing blank spaces using unoconv from command line in ba
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 11, 2012
On lubuntu Oneiric I'm using unoconv (0.4-1) to convert file from odt to pdf.
If the filepath doesn't contain blank spaces like
unoconv -f pdf /media/data/test/file.odt
everything works great.
But if I need to apply this command on a file with blank spaces on its path like
unoconv -f pdf "/media/data/test (0)/file.odt"
then on my system the command hangs with no result.
I tried with single quote too, with the same result.
Using quotes around the filepath param on my first example guides to the same result.
I searched the manual but there's no flag available to specify the input file.
So how can I specify a path with blank spaces to unoconv?
If there's no way to use unoconv on a filepath containing blank spaces, then is there any other alternative command which easily accept paths with blank spaces I can use?
How to PING with packet size increment?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2014
I'd like some advice on how to accomplish something at the Linux command line that I have been doing at the Windows and OSX command line for years..
Okay, so sometimes it is useful in network administration to carry out a ping sweep that increases the packet size incrementally while pinging a single host. With the 'do not fragment' bit set, this can be used to quickly determine the maximum MTU between two hosts without faffing about with trial and error. Or it can be used to test a problematic connection for MTU 'black holes', whereby packets of a certain size - but not necessarily the largest - do not make it across a connection.
From a Mac OSX terminal you can achieve this with the command: ping -g 56 -G 1492 -h 10 -D [ip address]
The -g and -G flags define the minimum and maximum packet size respectively. While the -h [number] is the amount by which to increment the packet size each time. The -D specifies 'Do Not Fragment'.
For example, we might run this ping swe
How to deal with RAW format images other than DNG?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 23, 2013
I've been shooting RAW images with various digital cameras and trying to process them on Ubuntu.
So far, I've tried digiKam, RawTherapee, Darktable, and DNG converter. All of them deal with DNG RAW files properly, but none of them work properly with other RAW formats, such as RW2(Panasonic) and ARW(Sony). Ubuntu displays weird colors on RAW images in formats other than DNG. They look washed-out and inclined to purple tone (see the attached images. You will easily identify which is the one processed with Ubuntu and which is the one processed inside the camera).
How can I properly process RAW images other than DNG on Ubuntu?
How to paste with no formatting?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 31, 2009
On Windows, I was often frustrated when I had to paste text copied from another window into email or a doc, as I often wanted to paste the text with no formatting, or using the formatting in the destination, not the source.
My workaround on Windows was to paste the text into an Emacs (Cygwin) window and then cut it again from there, then paste where I want it.
Ironically, I now see that Emacs on Linux is "smarter", so that this workaround doesn't even work. The formatting is preserved even when pasting and cutting through Emacs.
Is there a simple way to paste without the source formatting?
How to share with pcmanfm file manager
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 17, 2014
I have just install lubuntu in one computer and I've notice that I cant share folders with pcmanfm (lubuntu's default file manager) as I can do with kubuntu (dolphin) or Ubuntu (Nautilus).
I mean, I've install samba and all needed packets, but using pcmanfm I have no option to share when I go to properties of a folder. I've even install nautilus manager (nautilus-share) and using it I have a tab to share in the properties of the folders.
I would prefer leaving pcmanfm if possible, since I don't know if replacing it with Nautilus or Dolphin is a good idea (I want an stable system with less possible problems), so I have 2 options that I don't know how to do:
OPTION 1: keep pcmanfm. The problem is: How to share folders in the way can be done with Nautilus or Dolphin?
OPTION 2: Replace pcmanfm: For do this, I need to completely replace it in way that lubuntu uses always Dolphin (or Nautilus, but I'd prefer Dolphin unless you advice me Nautilus for some reason). How could I do t
How to: ReadyBoost with Ubuntu Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 28, 2007
EDIT: This thread is closed, and pending Staff review
by following this little tutorial you'll be able to use a USB pen prive as an additional swap. As a result, the pen drive will be used in the same way windows Vista does through the ReadyBoost functionality.
Instructions are very simple:
1) plug the pen drive in your usb connector;
2) if ubuntu automount the device (usually in /media/usbdisk), umount the device (ie., sudo umount /media/usbdisk);
3) sudo mkswap /dev/sda1 (assuming /dev/sda1 is the correct device for the connected usb device)
4) sudo swapon -p 32767 /dev/sda1
... and you are in!
do a "cat /proc/swaps" to check if everything is ok; on my laptop I get the following output:
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/hda4 partition 2353512 116 -1 (standard HD swap partition)
/dev/sda1 partition 1981928 123900 32767 ("R

Leitnermethod Flashcard Training with LaTeX support
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 20, 2007
I would like to know if anyone has interest in working with me to create an Ubuntu package that works for the KSalomon software (or at least can explain how to successfully compile it from source): http://ksalomon.sourceforge.net/download.php
It seems there are some problems with dependencies and installation from source and from the posted debian sarge package.
This seems like really great software, since it allows LaTeX and also uses the .kvtml (KVocTrain) format. My goal is to integrate it with hierarchical notetaking software like KnowIt and BasKet. I already created a utility that converts KnowIt files into .kvtml format.
