Stock Screenlet and the DOW
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 29, 2011
For a while now my Stock Screenlet for the DOW has been broken. I would use ^dji as the symbol as that's the symbol used at http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=^dji. But when I use that get "Wrong Symbol".
I changed the symbol to indu and for a while that seemed to work but then it broke again. Now starting up the stocks screenlet crashes unless I remove the indu stock.
I looked into the code a bit and AFAICT it does essentially the following to get a stock quote:
wget -qO - "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?f=nl1c1&s=$1"
Using this simple stockquote script I see:
Missing Symbols List.
So it seems the problem is that finance.yahoo.com returns bad data. I would have thought that at least some peopl

Secure Wipe of RAM in the Stock Slackware
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 10, 2011
Recently I read some information about computer security focusing on securely wiping files, disk free space, swap space, and RAM.
For those unaware, apparently the contents of RAM does not dissipate as quickly as most people would think after hitting the power button. This was more or less in the headline news some time back.
Some of the writers mentioned all or some of a suite of tools named secure-delete. There are four command line tools in the suite: 1) srm, 2) sfill, 3) sswap, and 4) smem.
I wondered how these tasks would get accomplished in the stock Slackware.
I searched for a slackbuild script for the suite of tools and found none at the popular repositories.
The srm command is available at slackbuilds.org, but for most people I think shred will fit the bill for secure deletions of files. Shred is part of the stock Slackware.
The sfill command is for wiping free space on a disk partition. On a stock Slackware I can perform the same task with two commands:
missing struct definitions in linux/can/netlink.h stock 2.6 kernel building kismet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2013
1. Is the linux-2.6 kernel tree retired to not so green pastures?
2. What is the easiest way out of "dependency hell" building software on an ancient hardware?
I've been helping my girlfriend build kismet-2011-03-R2 from sources on her old laptop. Poor thing is still running linux-2.6.31-23-generic kernel. In order to get kismet working a small library called Netlink is required for mac80211 support. The libnl-3.2.1 most recent version, however, will not build, because the linux headers in the /usr/include/linux/can/netlink.h library is missing a struct definitions for can_berr_counter. I've checked a newer 3.3.8 kernel and these definitions are on my machine. After doing a little bit of research in the kernel git repos, I have discovered that 2.6 tree stock kernel is "supposed" to have these included. It must have happened after 2.6.31-23 feature freeze, I guess. She wants me now to fix her kernel. Uhm, her machine works fine, but her Linux distribution has b

Seduced By Fedora; Want Stock Gnome Shell On 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 1, 2012
I wandered off the path and installed Fedora 17 a couple of days ago when it was released. It's very nice.
Fedora 17 runs an essentially stock Gnome 3.4.2, with no tweaking of Gnome Shell that I can discern.
I'm going to return to Ubuntu but it would really be nice if I could install the same stock Gnome 3.4.2 on it. i've installed Gnome Shell, etc., on 12.04 before and it retained the theme and color scheme of Unity. I want to avoid that and use the "out of the box" Gnome theme and colors.
I see a Gnome Shell Remix exists, but that seems to come with a lot of caveats about updates, etc.
I don't care if Unity/HUD remain or not. What I'm interested in is Gnome Shell on Ubuntu with no problems down the road about updates or other issues.
Is a minimal install, followed by Gnome from the Gnome team's PPA, a rational approach? Is there a risk that sooner or later I'll pull in dependencies that overlay Unity/HUD on the shell?
