Programming :: Sort Command Output Differs When Encounters?

Mar 18, 2010

Here is what I am doing I have a file, a.txt for example, with following contents:

coreutils install
cpio install
cpp install
cpp-4.3 install
dbus install


So it seems like the sorting algo. for dpkg --get-selections is different than sorting algo. of 'sort' command when it encounters "-" (hyphen). How can I sort the original file (a.txt) in such a way that it produces the output file ,b.txt, exactly the same.

Programming :: Perl Script Output Can't Be Redirected To A File / Sort It?

Feb 18, 2010

The perl script I wrote works fine if I print the result to screen 1 1000 0 5

But whenever I want to output to a file with 1 1000 0 5 > x0_out

it never really prints out to the file.

It worked earlier, but I was playing with my PATH lately, I don't know if it's related to that

Ubuntu :: Sort The Output To A Text File So That It Prints To The Text File At 1 Process Per Line?

Feb 6, 2011

im trying to output a list of running processes via a shell script. At the moment i got this which outputs the processes to a text file called out.

echo $(ps aux) >>out

The problem is though, the processes are all just one big block of text which makes it hard to read. Does anyone know how to sort the output to a text file so that it prints to the text file at 1 process per line? I know its probably simple but im very new to linux.

Programming :: SORT Command Versus Unix SORT

May 4, 2010

We switched from unix to linux and we have an old report that extracted data from a database, output to an ascii file and then sorted the results in the file based on different arguments. The report now blows up when it runs,and I can only guess it is because the options for sort on linux differ slightly from unix.For example, here is one of the commands issued from within the report app that ran on the old unix box:

if sort-sequence = "descending" then
'sort -t~" -f +3.0f -4.0 +5.0r -6.0 -f '
'sort -t~" +3.0f -4.0 +1.0f -2.0 -f'

I will eventually rewrite the report to store the data in a local table, but I can simply adjust the options to suit the requirments of linux. Basically, I need to know if this can be a quick fix for the short term.

Debian :: Unable To Set Up Wireless On My Laptop / Sort It?

Jun 4, 2011

I've just installed Squeeze on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C660D - adapter is a Realtek 8188CE) and was following the instructions on to set up WiFi. I've changed the source list, done the firmware update and the modprobe, but when I get to step 5 where it says to verify that I have a wireless interface, the output from iwconfig just lists lo, eth0 and pan0, all with "no wireless extensions". Does anyone have any ideas what I should do now?

Debian :: Grub Splash Screen Disappear / Sort It?

When does the grub-pc splash screen disappear?

On my computer it is displayed until "Loading, please wait" appears i.e. after both initrd.img and the kernel are loaded.

A yes and no answer is enough.

Debian Installation :: Can't Download Files From Any Repositories / Sort It?

Apr 29, 2011

I am still having trouble installing Debian 6.0.1a (Squeeze) from either CD #1 (KDE version) or netinst version. I tried for a few months to install Squeeze with KDE desktop; now I am trying to build a server, which seems easier (no and KDE problems to worry about.)

Part of the problem common to all my failed attempts (about a dozen!) seems to be that the installer tries to get packages or updates/upgrades from repos but for some reason fails.

I have a commercial all-in-one dslmodem/router/firewall which has very, very limited monitoring capabalities, just enough to show that the PC in question contacted the expected repos (I tried several in different regions) and also shows that no DNS requests failed during that time frame. I did try decreasing the security of the commercial firewall, but that seems to make no difference. I did try to save the install logs, but they didn't fit on a floppy. Any idea what could be going wrong?

Debian :: Live USB Doesn't Boot But Ubuntu / Mint Does - Sort It?

Feb 15, 2011

I am very much new to Debian. To have a feel and check if my laptop (HP Elitebook 6930p) is supported I decided to use a live USB option. I know how to create a live USB disk using Ubuntu and using the same knowledge I created the USB disk and tried to boot using it. The system starts to boots off the USB drive and then is stuck at a point where it fails to identify my HDD. Here is what I did
a) downloaded the debian-live-508-i386-gnome-desktop.iso/debian-live-508-i386-gnome-desktop.img/debian-live-507-i386.iso (I tried with all 3)
b) created a live USB using unetbootin
c) tried to boot from live environment

My laptop's hard drive is encrypted using SafeBoot.
After all the 3 debian images failed to boot I tried with other Linux flavors such as Mint and Ubuntu. Interestingly Mint and Ubuntu boot. Is there some thing I need to take care of?

Debian Configuration :: Postfix Not Delivering To Local Users / Sort It?

Mar 24, 2011

I did search the forum but didn't find an answer.

I have setup Postfix + Dovecot on my basic debian 5 server. If I send a message to a from mutt, it delivers just fine and is visible when viewed through squirrelmail, I can also send just fine.

My issue is that irrespective of what options I set in, I cannot for the life of me get Postfix to stop erroring with "Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table". I'm stumped.

My is as follows code...

I do not want to setup virtual hosting with MySQL or similar, I literally want to receive mail in local users mailboxes for a single domain. Any ideas on what's missing?

Debian Hardware :: ALSA - Noticed Some Sort Of Crackling In Audio

Mar 9, 2011

I am having a really annoying problem here. Every time when I use my Computer while listening to music, or watching a video, I get some sort of crackling in my Audio. For example, playing a mp3 with Rhythmbox (or Banshee or Totem, doesn't matter really) while browsing the web is just horrible, every time I scroll down the page (Mouse wheel or keyboard) I get that noise. Just listening to the music while not touching the Computer works just fine. It does not seem to be CPU related, my reason being: I can max out my CPU, rendering a 3D graphic and still have crystal clear sound, but browsing down some big file-folder at the same time will distort my audio.

The same goes with games which are a bit on the high CPU side, like Nexuiz with high graphic settings: No sound problems at all. I am using my on-board sound, which lspci lists as VIA Technologies, Inc. VT1708/A [Azalia HDAC] (VIA High Definition Audio Controller) (rev 10), pure ALSA setup, no pulse/esd or anything of the like installed. Switched to unstable to see if a more up2date kernel or updated alsa would do the trick, it didn't! I am running Debian Unstable - 2.6.37-2-amd64 kernel, Gnome-Desktop. Here's what I did to make my sound work in the first place, since my squeeze didn't recognize my sound-setup out of the box:

To make my onboard sound system-wide default I created /etc/asound.conf:
# Modified as per [URL]
pcm.!default {
type hw
card VT82xx }
ctl.!default {
type hw
card VT82xx } .....

Debian :: GTK Fonts Extremely Small After Upgrade To Lenny / Sort It?

Jul 23, 2010

I finally got around to upgrading from etch to lenny. After having upgraded, I find that the fonts are extremely small in all gtk applications (iceweasel, abiword, gnumeric, etc.)

Everything looked fine before the upgrade, but now the application fonts in the menu bars, dialogs, etc. are so small as to be unreadable. Also, when I open up gnumeric spreadsheets the fonts in the cells are unreadable. All my X-based applications (rxvt, xfig, xmms, etc.) look just fine, it's just the GTK apps that have the font problems.

Interestingly, web pages themselves render just fine in iceweasel. Also, abiword documents look fine even though the menus, dialogs, etc. are too small to read.

I was able to get a workaround for the application fonts. I put the following in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 code...

At 24 point the fonts are still a bit on the small side, though. And I still have problems reading information in the gnumeric cells.

I use the fvwm window manager without gnome or kde.

Debian Multimedia :: Alsactl Restore Doesn't Work In Rc.local / Sort It?

Oct 21, 2010

Every time I boot my machine, some of the playback values in alsamixer are set to 0 and are muted, so I have no sound.

The thing is, I have tried setting these to normal levels and then run sudo alsactl store. Then, if I run sudo alsactl restore after I reboot, the sound comes back up. However, if I have alsactl restore in /etc/rc.local, it doesn't work: I still get muted sound when I reboot. I have to run sudo alsactl restore manually each time.

I have already checked whether /etc/rc.local runs at startup, and it does. Also, I know that /var/lib/alsa/asound.state contains the correct values, because when I run sudo alsactl restore, the sound returns to normal levels. So what remains is either alsactl restore doesn't work in /etc/rc/local, or something runs after it and mutes the sound.

Hardware :: Promise Tx4650 RAID Card Does Not Work In Debian 6.0 / Sort It?

Mar 3, 2011

I have just installed Debian 6.0 and it does not seem to recognize my Promise Tx4650 RAID controller.
I have created a dual boot with WinXP 64. Windows sees my two RAID one arrays correctly (as two logical drives).
In debian I see four physical drives in file browser.
I contacted Promise tech support and they said that the only Linux they support is SUSE, but they did send me some source code to compile.
This problem is complicated by my newness to Linux and Debian.
Here are some specific questions:
1] Is there any debian package that is known to support the Promise Tx4650?
2] Where can I see if my Tx4650 is recognized?
3] If I have to compile it into the kernel, where are the directions for how to do that?

Debian Configuration :: NetworkManager Doesn't Show (working) Internet Connection / Sort It?

May 14, 2010

I have no idea how I managed this, but I am able to connect to the internet but NetworkManager doesn't show any connection. This means that until I kill it, I cannot log in with Pidgin, because it is waiting for a connection.

Do I disable NetworkManager completely or do I try to make it recognize that I am connected to the Internet? If the latter, then how should I go about? (Please let me know which files I need to show you, because I know I've messed around with a couple).

Debian Configuration :: Getting Different Output From Ufw?

Jul 6, 2011

I was just downloading a few torrent files when all of a sudden my network connection just died. I checked the output of dmesg an I saw this:

[25148.587960] [UFW BLOCK] IN=wlan0 OUT= MAC=00:26:c7:05:3f:c8:00:24:a5:34:93:91:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=60 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=26519 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=4631 DPT=80 WINDOW=5840 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
[25174.135763] [UFW BLOCK] IN=wlan0 OUT= MAC=00:26:c7:05:3f:c8:00:24:a5:34:93:91:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=58 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=114 ID=3696 PROTO=UDP SPT=18091 DPT=51413 LEN=38


Of course their were hundreds of lines just like these,but just so you get the idea. I had to physically power down my router in order to get connected again, then all of this continued. I'm clueless in the networking department, but this seems alarming to me , as some of those source IP's are external. Is someone probing me? Or is this normal with torrent activity? I've never seen so much activity by my firewall. I recognize port 51413 is for transmission, but 3389? That's for remote desktop connections as far as I know.
