Is there a way to know where init scripts in Linux are stored?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 4, 2013
As I asked in the title, I'm looking for a script/command to find the correct directory (usually /etc/init.d or /etc/rc.d/init.d).
Right now I'm using
dirname `find / -name acpid 2> /dev/null | grep /etc/`
but sometimes I get more than one result (probably some of the results are link) . Any suggestion?
I'm using acpid because it is a script that should be present in almost every distribution that is not prehistoric. If someone has a suggestion for a better script, let me know, thanks :)

Embedded Linux where to start?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 21, 2007
I need to setup an embedded Linux box, which can run an embedded version of Debian.
The problem is that I don't even know where to start.
Is there any guide/guides that would help to complete the task for a user who can setup Apache and Samba yet never compiled a kernel before? Or am I shooting too far?
The hardware is Picotux 200 (ARM9).
Android and Linux where are the practical similarities?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 18, 2011
What can I do with Android, that I do (in my case) with Xubuntu? I have been doing a lot of searching on the Net to answer this question, but I haven't found any consistent resources that review the practical similarities between Android and Linux, seen from a Linux users point of view, without installing a custom ROM?
I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Spica (i5700) running Android 2.1, with "a Better Terminal App Pro" installed, as well as BusyBox. Obviously, APT isn't included with Android 2.1, so I won't be doing any software updating that way.
Here are a few basic questions:
Is it possible to edit some preferences, with more options, using VI, than from the GUI?How does the Android file structure compare to Linux?Is it possible to install some CLI apps like lynx, nano, alpine or mutt, cmus, etc?What is the path to a microSD card?Is it possible to use wget and save a file to the microSD card?Is it possible for me to use ftp to log into my web hotel and copy files to it

The people in Northwest Georgia will be more directly impacted by this news, but as of October 15, 2009, Radiated Computers, a Linux-friendly computer store advocating free and open source software, is open. A friend and I have started this store in response to seeing terribly overpriced computers become the norm. If you're in the area, come and see us!
I need to design games in Linux, where should I go?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 23, 2005
I like to design games by hobby (www.oriontide.com) and I've been designing games for Windows users for quite some time.
The program I used was Game Maker. Recently, I got fed up with Windows and wiped it from my drive, now I use Fedora 3 exclusively. Fedora does everything I need an OS to do, except Game Design. The only regret I have with my switch is losing the ability to use Game Maker. I really like that program.
Anyway, I'd like to find a good programming tool to make games in Linux. I'd also like to start programming in 3D. My 3D programming skills are severely lacking, so what I need is basically something that is insanely easy to learn but also produces great results. Either that, or I would need to find a way to run Game Maker. I've tried Wine and even Cedega but it doesn't work well, I even have VMWare installed but it doesn't have hardware acceleration so it's pointless to use vmware for game design. The games I have designed for Windows run terribly slow in VMware.

Linux hardware store in DFW?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 28, 2008
Is there a brick and mortar computer hardware store in the Dallas-Fort Worth area specializing in Linux and BSD technologies? Selling only hardware that has been proven to work? That perhaps includes a labeling system for easy assessment of compatibility?
That would be excellent. If you guys hear anything, let me know.
