Advanced Programming in the UNIX.. vs The Linux Programming Interface: A Lin..
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 19, 2011
I am taking some OS course(C programming and Unix) this autumn and the book used is: Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment (2nd Edition).
After reading loads of comments on this(mostly embracing it) I came cross this book which is newer: The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming Handbook
So I was thinking that for the same price I could get the second one which also is more Linux oriented. What do you think? Anyone who read it?
GNU/Linux user interface rant
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 8, 2005
I'm not sure if these has been brought up before. But I've not heard anyone complaining this.
Well these are not a huge problem, but a nuisance IMO. Details like these are what contributes to pleasant user experience
I'm sure all firefox user has experience this. The mouse cursor has to be placed at the correct part of the frame in order for the page to scroll. While other browser like IE is way less fussy in term of cursor placement.
Sometimes clicking on an icon would invoke the busy cursor, but the not actual program that the icon is suppose to activate. It really makes me wonder what is happening underneath the GUI.
There are already many complains on this one below, but I'll just give my share.
Hardware setup GUI
I have yet to see a distribution that has a fully functional GUI on hardware setup. The best I've seen is YaST2 from SUSE but the last time I am trying to configure dual head through GUI it doesn't work yet. Well you might argue that Linux is not for eve
Linux network interface going down
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 19, 2006
Sorry I am kind of a noob and I just need some help locating information. I have a Mandriva linux setup that I have been running for about a year and just recently I am having a problem with the network interface going down. After about a week or so of working fine I will notice the machine not responding to web requests. I try to ssh or ftp or whatever and I get no response. Even my ping requests are not returned. The machine seems to be running fine otherwise. I have no monitor attached so I am just wondering what logs I could look through to see if I can find a reason why this is happening. I looked at the Apache logs but of course it just shows a bunch of requests and then a length of time with no requests. I also looked at the syslog in /var/log and it shows no entries during the time the interface is down. The only log entry that runs every minute is

Azure Linux remove and add another disk
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 4, 2015
I had a need to increase the disk space, for my Linux azure, we attached a new empty disk and followed the steps here http://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-linux-how-to-attach-disk , the only difference is that the newly added deviceid was not found in /var/log/messages.
Now I need to add another disk, and we attached another disk, the problem is that for doing the first step of fdisk
sudo fdisk /dev/sdc
I have no idea where the recent disk is attached, total clueless, also what are the steps if i want to remove a disk altogether, I know umount will unmount a disk, but that doesn't neccessarily takes off the device from the instance, i want a total detachment.

location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 5, 2014
Working on linux, sending data to the serial port at 115200 bauds using:
echo -e "\x1B\x11\x00\x00" > /dev/ttyAMA0
The receiver side is reading the following data:
I dont want \xF8 as starting byte and \x0D\x0A as tails (carriage return and new line bytes).
How could I remove them? So far all I found is
stty raw -F /dev/ttyAMA0
This deactivates the \x0D, but i want to get rid of \xF8 and \x0A and no other options have worked for me.

I'm not too familiar with Linux and have defined the same path in the $PATH variable 6 times. I wasn't logging out to check whether it worked.
