mejam, The way you are responding is not very helpful for anyone wanting to help with your problem. you need to make the git repository public, either with the git daemon, or by making it available over the web somehow (a cloned repo in a web-accessible area, for example). Instead of saying that it ...

I'm in the same boat. I bought the one with the broadcom chipset and low clock speed. I was only able to install the minimal version of dd-wrt, which gave me the exact same controls as the web interface that came with the router. I wanted to increase the signal strength, but that caused the router t...

AOA, I was getting a pretty terrible signal in some parts of my house with the WRT54G I had before and the D-Link access point before that. I bought a WPN824 for $30, and that thing has been working like a champ. Am getting at least 32 mbits/sec with generic wifi cards. That said, Cons: * No SNMP * ...

AOA,
Thanks for the links. However, as is probably apparent from the commandline I said does work, the access point is open, so doesn't use WPA. Can I tell what commands NetworkManager is issuing when I connect using it?

Regards

The Urdu keyboard should be builtin (It's bundled with xorg). All you have to do is enable it. In KDE, you enable keyboard layouts in the Accessibility section of the Control Center.

Not to detract from your point or anything, but the python version could have been a lot smaller if you had used the __cmp__ operator. This takes advantage of the fact that python can compare the primitive types already. All you have to do it set the compare for Lump to use it. I'm not an expert, bu...

You want to do

mount /dev/hdb5 /eng -t ntfs -o rw

(I haven't ever written to NTFS partitions, but it's generally the way to mount read/write).

AOA, That's a very nice article. One thing I'd really like SSH to have it to be able to add port forwarding on the fly. A lot of time, you don't know the port to forward until after you login. In such a case, you have to logout and log back in with the correct commandline argument (or config options...

You can do svn co or svn export for exporting out just the latest rev.

Also, if the repository is being exposed using viewcvs (AKA viewvc), it usually has an option to export out the currently selected subtree into a zip file.

I like to use the standard subversion commandline client, but others at my workplace use TortoiseSVN. Tortoise supports local, http, svn, and svn+ssh servers. Oh, and if you look really carefully, the sourceforge website provides the commandline for checking out the code from the repository. No thin...

Views: 6865

It seems that The Google is down, the Internets are broken, every distribution has pulled out their postfix packages, and the postfix tarball no longer includes the INSTALL file. With that in mind, the question is perfectly legitimate. An answer must be provided.
