Removing Mandrae Galaxy from Mandrake 10.0
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 18, 2004
I'm intrested in completely de-theming Mandrake 10.0 at the RPM level so that Galaxy is no longer the default theme and KDE returns to its normal behavior.
I have a couple of parameters to do this and I could possibly be willing to offer a bounty
(Trust me I'm furious over Galaxy)
This needs to be at the RPM Level. I cannot do konstruct, I need to be able to go rpm -Fvh *kde* and it be done.
All the Galaxy theme materials such as mdkkdm need to be able to safely uninstall. (Currently uninstalling themes like this uninstslls most of KDE.
No hacks like the tricks used to change the star back into that cog. This has to be a self cleaning oven and KDE needs to be made completely back to normal.
I am an LDAP Administrator, and after a month of fighting with Galaxy, I can't get rid of it. So, if someone as seasoned and experianced as me can't get rid of it, its going to take someone know knows alot about RPMs. (Maybe thac?)
In any case. I will not settle for defeat on this
Read HPUX disk from my Debian installation?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2012
I have successfully installed Debian from across my (Windows) network to my HP 9000 machine and clearly too sexy for my shirt!
I have a mind to try and recover the root password on a separate HP-UX SCSI disk I can now connect to the box but the hfs filesystem is invisible to Linux.
Anyone got any ideas as to where to start in finding a
disk recovery utility which would enable me to read and amend the HP disk contents?
Thanks again for all your help you guys, were it not for you I would pull my own head off!
Mounting (possibly corrupt) ufs disk from NAS4FREE
- date: November 30, 2013
I have a hard disk that I was previously using in a system installed with NAS4FREE. Unfortunately, the system seemed to stop working and, if possible, I would like to retrieve some files from the hard disk.
I've booted the system into ubuntu through a live CD, but I'm having trouble mounting the disk. I'm still new to ubuntu so I don't understand much of it. This is the output I get from sudo fdisk -l :
:~$ sudo fdisk -l

13.10; resume from hibernate via lid close & acpid script workaround fails
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2013
I've been fighting with hibernate configuration on a Sony Vaio Pro (2013) laptop for a few weeks now; initially, fixes listed on Launchpad - for example, here - worked, but as of a couple of weeks ago that fix is no longer functional. Based upon recommendations from another Launchpad user, I have successfully gotten a script to run through the acpid which will initiate hibernate successfully, but upon resume the screen simply goes blank.
In /etc/acpi/events, I have a file called "lid" which contains:
This calls /etc/acpi/lid.sh, which does the following:
/bin/grep -q open /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/ state && exit 0
To get this to initiate hibernation, I had to modify the ownership of lid.sh to root; otherwise, running it through my user didn't do anything.
As far as I can tell, the running of this script should be equivalent to running pm-hibernate in the terminal; what's

Same thing for the other programs!

Removing special characters from filenames
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 9, 2007
I have a load of files that are named "zip1.zip", "zip2.zip" etc ..
I would like to remove the " from the filenames using single shell command rather than manually renaming them all. I have experimented with various commands but they don't remove the special character (") from the filename.
What command should I use to rename the files ?
