# which unpack into a folder called openoffice.org-3.2.0 Maybe I have been horribly misled by this obsolete documentation and the following statement therein:To download a source package, you would use the following command:
$ apt-get source packagename
This will download three files: a .orig.tar.gz, a .dsc and a .diff.gz. In the case of packages made specifically for Debian, the last of these is not downloaded and the first usually won't have "orig" in the name. The .dsc file is used by dpkg-source for unpacking the source package into the directory packagename-version.
I just pulled the MS Removal Tool executable off a Windows 7 machine. Is there a way I can view the code on my Ubuntu machine? I am curious how they block the "real" av software from running. I did get rid of it, pretty simple.
i want to see the source code of different commands .how they are working ??for ex why ls is listing all the files and directory .what code is written for ls so that it is listing like this.where the source code is kept by the os
I have been using Linux for a number of years, and I am reasonably adept at installing, updating, using, and fixing problems in it. I am currently using Fedora 15 as I like the "bleeding-edge" stuff, but I have finally come far enough that I want to learn about writing and manipulating source code. I am trying to teach myself c++ and have all the necessary compilers librarys etc.
i was told by some members to use svn to view nagios plugins source code. i'm currently use nagios checker, i want to view the source code behind it, i want to see how the codes behind the nagios checker work.
i've installed subversion using sudo apt-get install subversion, after that followed by this command: svn co [URL] subversion but when i issued the second command i got this:
... Setting up subversion (1.6.5dfsg-1ubuntu1) ... Processing triggers for libc-bin ... ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
I have been working in macromedia dreamviewer for editing html and php files, Just now I moved to linux system by installing xampp , my question is that I need a best html and php editor that supports both the design view and code view as like in dreamviewer.
Where I can get a disc for the Fedora 11 source code? I really like this release of fedora and want to keep it for the future. Also, what's the difference between SRPM and RPMs? What does an SRPM do when you install it and what is it's purpose?
I have some C source code listings that are not documented or even commented from which I would like to run a program to create a flowchart.I'm not looking for the likes of dia or such which require the user to do the creation please. I've read the posts on this and other forums but have found only user created charts, not from source. From several web searches I know winblows has such programs but I don't want windows on this machine!
I was a die hard Ubuntu user for the last 2 years and decided to use something more advanced or different. My question (after searching the crap out of Google) is how can I view the source code of Fedora? I have found many sites explaining this but it is not written in terms that are easy for me to understand. I haven't been programming for years and using advanced features in Linux so most of these sites are not explaining out and most are explaining how to build and add on to the kernel.
i am already a little bit familiar with linux and now i want to know better the linux OS. i have downloaded the source code of the krnel from the kernel.org and i dont understand the linux source trees organization, so can somebody do me a favor and give me a link to some internet page (or at least a book) that explains that?? i have searched in the internet with the tag:::linux source trees organization and i have not found nothing interesting
while installing the linux-2.6.31 source code in fedora 12 I got an error: [root@pratyush linux-2.6.31]# make install sh /home/parag/rpmbuild/SOURCES/linux-2.6.31/arch/x86/boot/install.sh 2.6.31 arch/x86/boot/bzImage System.map "/boot" /sbin/new-kernel-pkg: line 277: /sbin/mkinitrd: No such file or directory mkinitrd failed
I am a little optimistic now after my problem of wifi was solved by stoat that presisted for about a year, now i am trying to install my vpn client. he asks me to write the path of kernel source code directory : and i answer by:/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-57.fc8/build/
But he answers no such directory or file and i dont know why
The build is covered by a red box when displayed by a terminal so can any body tells me where i can find my kernel source directory or i should install them, how
I recently downloaded grub2 source code for my F13 installation and it compiled and installed perfectly, but when I rebooted nothing had happened and grub was still version .97. Is there something I didn't do?
I have a dell PC running on Fedora 12, and I would like to install this SCSI controller card from adaptec:[URL]I see that the driver for Linux is available only as source code. Can somebody please indicate me how to proceed? I am not advanced enough in Linux to know what to do with it myself...I downloaded the most recent (v2.0.26) Source Code for Linux Kernel v2.6 on all platforms.Here are the contents of the tarball (if it helps in any way):
I am trying to install NachOS on fedora, i make a nachos directory and download the nachos source code and cross compiler, then i extract the zip files and patch the make files and everything is okay till now. but when it comes to compiling nachos, i followed these steps.
* ~/nachos> cd NachOS-4.0 * ~/nachos/NachOS-4.0> cd code/build.linux * ~/nachos/NachOS-4.0/code/build.linux> make depend
I followed the steps from [url] to download and install the kernel source code.
"Following Generic Textbooks
Many of the tutorials, examples, and textbooks about Linux kernel development assume the kernel sources are installed under the /usr/src/linux/ directory. If you make a symbolic link, as shown below, you should be able to use those learning materials with the Fedora packages. Install the appropriate kernel sources, as shown earlier, and then run the following command:
Where is my kernel source located which i can modify. I cant find anything in usr/src/kernels? Why?
I have been using Linux for 2 months, specifically Ubuntu, and been wondering where the source code is. Not only do I wonder where the kernel source code is but also where the source code for the installed programs are.
I'm using fedora 14. And I have installed apache, PHP and MySQL. I tried testing PHP with phpinfo(). But when I view it view my browser (localhost/test.php) it just shows the code itself instead of displaying the phpinfo page. This is the content of my test.php page.
In what directory do I need to install a tarball containing API libraries in order to import the libraries for programming?I've been trying for a few hours now to get started on my homework - but I need the GLUT api for OpenGL. After attempting to compile a simple test program, I got the error Code: glut.h: No such file or directory
First off, I'm not even really sure if OpenGL wasn't included in the original install or if I even need it when programming with GLUT (I truelly am clueless, lol). But after reading as much as I could, I've only been able to deduce that I need to install the API libraries somewhere on my disc.So I found the tarball, and there are special instructions for installing a linux machine. I found instructions saying to install it in the directory /usr/lib/ but is that right for the SUSE distro?Also, if anybody knows anything about GLUT/OpenGL programming + openSUSE11.2.
