I am trying to find a linux cmd line utility that will read info from an iso file. The problem I have is that the file is always corrupt so I cannot mount it because I only have around 100k of it but all I need is to extract the headers of what the iso contains. how I can achieve this I have searched the internet with no look at all.
Under unix/linux, there is this extremely useful program screen: it's for bash, text-only, and I can detach a session, log out (the session is still running though), log in later (even from a different computer) and resume the session exactly as I left it. My question is, is there an equivalent to screen for X? So what I want to do is: work remotely with ssh -X in an X-session on a remote linux machine, log out, then later log in from a different computer again with ssh -X and then re-attach the X-session; practically resuming work from the moment when I logged out before. Is this possible?
Is there a command line utility to tell me about what's inside a video file? Say I have a .mpg file. I want to know about the video stream and the various audio streams, the codec used for the video stream, the bitrate of the video stream, and so on.
I'm attempting to install a command-line version of Maverick, from the alternate CD. I'm using the 64-bit version. The installation has gone fine - however, I'm having troubles getting the wireless to work. I've installed wireless-tools by carting the *.deb archive over from another computer - this seemed to go fine, and iwconfig shows my wireless card as "wlan0". However, even after setting the essid and the WEP key I can't connect to the internet (tested this using apt-get). I know that this wireless card requires the "rtl8187se" module, which automatically loads with the desktop version of Maverick - however, it isn't working on the command-line. Running "sudo modprobe rtl8187se" pings back an error message saying that the module can't be found. Is there a way for me to manually install it or "find" it?
If I want to use the locate command on a Linux machine, I usually run sudo updatedb first to update the database. I can run the locate command on OS X 10.5 but I can't find updatedb. What's the corresponding updatedb for the mac?
We often require to find an equivalent text command for any GUI operation. Just as an example we click on a folder (say ABC) from the current directory in order to see the contents of that directory. The equivalent command for it to happen would be->
Code: cd ABC ls Now the thing is that we often don't know what that equivalent command will be. So I want to know that is there any way out to find it. What I want to do is that I shall perform any operation using mouse in the GUI mode(whatever operation it could be) and then I can see a log file to see what I actually did last(rather what the command would have been if I have worked in the text mode)...
I am teaching using an Ubuntu 10 server. The course stipulates the students use the mail command to send me assessment work, however I can't get mail to work (I did have to install it in the first place). After I end the message with a dot I get the message "send-mail: cannot open mail:25".

iam trying to send sms using gnokii utility in linux firstly i did sudo apt-get install gnokii after that i got a gnokiirc.gz file in /usr/share/doc/gnokii/sample/gnokiirc.gz file here after that i did gunzip gnokiirc.gz then i transferred my file from the /usr/share/doc/gnokii/sample to home directory by using copy command as copying files to home is not allowed so i used sudo sudo cp gnokii /home after that i changed the port=/dev/ttyUSB2 and model=AT in the gnokiirc file in the home directory and then i wrote gnokii --identify

I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...
I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):
* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).
** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,

I have a DBA that needs to be able to do a "setgroups" on Linux. He had the functionality on AIX but now we're migrating to red hat. In-case you don't know the setgroups command in AIX; it allows users to drop groups that they belong to for that login session. He wants to be able to do this so that he can drops groups for testing. Does anyone know of any equivalent commands to setgroups or another way of dropping groups for that session and not permanently?
Is there an equivalent command that will perform the same task as ALT+F4 keystroke? I want to create a simple script that lirc can use so I can set up a button on my remote to close program windows that pop up (like when plugging in usb thumb drives, inserting a dvd, and other windows), and avoid having to remote desktop or go into CLI to kill the window.
