Is there an alternative format to RAR that can survive some data corruption?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 21, 2009
I just had an experience where I tried to unzip a .tar archive that had been damaged somehow. It seems even very minor damage to an archive will make large chunks of it impossible to extract normally.
This makes me want to use a different archive format for my archived documents. They are mostly large bunches of small text and document files and scanned documents. I could just leave them in single files, but then it takes forever to back them up or move them to a USB drive.
I know that RAR archives support parity files which allow you to repair damaged archives. I am wondering if there is an alternative to RAR though (ideally an open source one). Also, I'm looking for a format that incorporates the parity file into the archive so that you don't have separate PAR files floating around which are easy to lose. Also, compression ratio isn't that important. Compressing the text files down a bit would be nice, but the document scans are already compressed, so trying to compress the
can write to but not read from ttyS0
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 2, 2004
I am running slackware 9 and attempting to communicate with a serial device over /dev/ttyS0. for testing I have plugged a female-female serial cable between my serial port and a windows box running a terminal program.
I can write to the serial port, for example if I say:
$ echo hi > /dev/ttySO
'hi' prints out on the windows machine terminal no problem.
however, I cannot seem to read from it. if I say:
$ cat /dev/ttyS0
VPN servers that can serve Android phones that are jailed
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 19, 2011
I have a jailed Android phone (i.e. no root), which I believe limits me to using the built-in VPN client. What server can be installed on Debian that will work with that client?
Apparently using strongSwan requires building the Android kernel (yikes!). I would like a server that simply works with a stock Android, and has step-by-step instructions (a lot of the documentation I'm finding is scraps, bits, and bobs, for reference).
[SOLVED] External USB Hard Drive can write after KDE 4.6.5 upgrade
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 21, 2011
CAN'T write rather (missed the 't on the subject. ;-)
I have Slackware64-Multilib 13.37 and I recently upgraded KDE to 4.6.5 using AlienBob's packages/instructions (via README in the 4.6.5 directory).
Before I upgraded KDE, when I connected my 250GB external HDD it mounted it to /media/disk. Now with 4.6.5 KDE, the mounting point is /media/257292B62DE52FC9. I issue the mount command and get:
Which root filesystem for embedded system using SD card and that can restart ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 12, 2015
I use an embedded system such as :
- customized from Atmel SAMA5D3_Xplained
- using only an SD card high capacity (SDHC 8 Go, class 10)
- boot from SD card (no flash drive)
- use 2 partitions :
-- FAT : for bootloader and kernel
-- ext3 : for root file system, with option noatime,nodiratime,barrier=1 (in fstab)
My question :
I want to change my partition system such as :
- FAT : for bootloader and kernel (like previously)
- ext4 : for root file system and a few write (only during update binaries)
- ??? : for additional files (environ 10 files) but with a lot of write
But I don't know which file system is the better choice for this 3rd partition.
I read other discussion and I read often that Ext4 and JFS would be a good choice, but I fear that appeals to sync is slow.
Looking for an app that can display pictures on a map based on geotag
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2010
I'm using kphotoalbum to organize all my pictures but have started to geotag them as well. GoogleEarth/picasa can display pictures on the map but that link between the two only works under windows. If there a Linux app that will display my pictures on a map? I know there are web sites that will do it but uploading all of them is quite time consuming.
[SOLVED] Offline Applications That Can Later Synchronize Online
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2011
I will have my Linux computer with me for the next year and a half, but will not have internet access. However, I realize that a lot of applications can be used offline and then synchronize online once they're re-connected to the internet.
For example, I know this is possible with kmail via IMAP, POP3.
I was hoping to get a list of such applications so I can install them and potentially use them while I'm offline. For example, would like to find a journal/blog-like application that I can later post the entire journal by synchronizing it online.
But really open to any/all ideas for various applications. Also open to recommendations as to how to easily find such applications.
I use Gnome on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. (I used to use KDE, which is why I knew that bit about kmail.)
Graphing Application that Can Plot Two Y Axis With Different Scales
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 29, 2014
I guess LibreOffice and do this, but, I can't figure it out. When I try to add a second Y axis I wind up getting the values I want take the place of the X axis values. I had tried this with Open Office a few years ago and it didn't seem to have the ability to do this either.
I just need to plot two datasets (population and revenues) against time (years).
Does anyone have any suggestions of a simple graphing app to plot this data?
Is there a video editor that can blur out an object?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2011
I'm wondering if there is a video editor out there for Ubuntu 11.10 that has the ability to blur out or pixellate objects in a video?
I have downloaded OpenShot and Pitiviv, but I couldn't find anything there to do it with. Maybe I'm missing something, but there just has to be a way to do this in Ubuntu.
I have a video of some cars and I want the license plates blurred out, FYI.
