I just installed openSuse for the first time the other day. I'm trying to get my web development tools up and going and I've hit a little snag.After installing php5 I tried to use interactive mode on the command line (php -a) but I didn't get the nice line-edit-capable prompt I'm used to. A little research told me I needed to install readline support, so I installed the php5 readline package. The thing is even though `php -m` now shows the readline module is loaded I still don't get the line-edit support
I have downloaded and tried to use emusicj to download music from [URL] but without success. I have java 1.6 installed which is required but I have not been able to get it to work. Its as if java is disabled. Has anyone been able to get emusicj or the downloader from the emusic site itself to work? If so how?
I have a small ARM machine running an Arch linux variant, PlugApps. It was set up and working fine at my home, with a standard networking setup -- cable modem and router. I could do pretty much anything I needed to access the net fine.This machine is a remote monitoring system for another location. I shipped it to that location and am now trying to get it set up using another set of hands on site. There it is on the network behind a dsl modem and a router. I forwarded ports from the dsl modem to the router and from the router to the ARM computer.
In both cases the ARM machine is/was configured to use dhcp.So here's the deal:I can ssh into the ARM machine just fine.I can ping hosts on the wan fine (eg: stanford.edu).BUT:wget fails for not being able to resolve a valid address (eg: http://checkip.dyndns.org)the PlugApps package management system (pacman) cannot resolve the repository address the openntp time sync isn't working On the new network, I am able to connect to another client windows PC which has the same associated network info (Bcast address, Mask, etc. - comparing windows "ipconfig" vs linux "ifconfig" outputs) but which can resolve addresses for web browsing, etc.What am I missing? If it can resolve addresses for pings, why can't it work for other address requests? If I can ssh interact with it, why can't it connect to the net for other purposes?
If a wget download is interrupted (like if I have to shutdown prematurely), I get a wget.log with the partial download. How can I later resume the download using the data in wget.log? I have searched high and low (including wget manual) and cannot find how to do this. Is it so obvious that I did not see it? The wget -c option with the wget.log as the argument to the -c option does not work. What I do do is open the wget.log and copy the URL and then paste it into the command line and do another wget. This works but the download is started from the beginning, which means nothing in the wget.log is used.
Posting from Splashtop as i can't get past keytouch-apid in the boot process,Yeah me bad so i would like to disable it so i can complete the process.Using the interactive startup seemed the way to go but how does one get there before udev starts up?Or is there something else i could try.
My problem is: One of my services has failed to start. All I need is just go into interactive startup and ignore that service. The system is encrypted as LUKS. I press 'i' before and after entering the phrase (it asked me "Password for filesystem"). But interactive startup seems not working. All the services go to start without my permission. I mean there is no question such as "Start XXX [Y/N]?"
In the past I used CentOS for some months, and interactive startup (by pressing 'i' on boot time) was fine. I could allow or not what service should be started.
I have a situation where I am in a non-interactive shell. I have tried from within my non-interative shell to spawn an interactive shell but my output still does not goto me. Isn't there a way I can somehow go into /proc or somwhere and make the output my /dev/tty1? Or some way else to remedy this?The situation arises because I drop from my restricted shell environment (a sort of CLI interface), into the actual Linux shell. I cannot change the code of the CLI environment I am just faced with being in the linux shell environment and its non-interactive. Its very annoying to have to put > /dev/tty1 after every command I type.
Not to mention it seems damn near impossible to get pagers like more and less to work properly when your in a non-interactive shell.
I've been fiddling about with vortexbox (the one before 1.4 I think), for a while. This is a music ripping and server rpm setup using Fedora 11 as the base.
As it was on a test machine, decided to try changing the logical volume sizes of LogVol00 and LogVol02 to fit a few more cd's on 02 before getting a new pc (just to see how it works).
Logged on and opened up the graphic version of lvm (using gnome). Then selected the LogVol02 logical volume, select edit, changed name to LogVol02-Storage, saved and logged out. Rebooted vortexbox since then its been unable to start properly (is this a kernel panic?).
Read up a lot on lvm on the net, have access to Fedora 11 disk 1, so logged on. Eventually managed (I thought to) to change LogVol02-Storage to LogVol02 using lvrename.
However, still refuses to boot completely.
The message it gives is as follows (sort of): Welcome to Fedora Press '1' to enter interactive startup
Setting up Logical Volume Management: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group 'VolGroup00' now active
*** An error occurred during file system check. *** Droping you to a shell; the system will reboot when you leave the shell.

Loving vortexbox appart from this. Will it be easier just to reinstall everything? If so, is there a way of listing all the changes I've done so I can reproduce (I'm thinking of just looking at all the commands I ran on the CLI).
Otherwise, is there a way of listing all of the commands I ran in terminal and piping them into a file so I can see what I need to do to rebuild after reinstalling?
Recently i've upgraded my fedora 11 to 12 using the preupgrade command and now I have a problem booting! when i start the interactive boot it hangs after trying to run the service local, it looks as if its trying to boot because the cursor blinks really fast then blinks normally after a few seconds. no error was stated during the event. what seems to be the problem here?
For some reason some command line commands are unable to resolve urls, whereas other commands work as they should. I have checked most setting but am unable to find out what is wrong and am no closer to figuring out what and why.
[root@subzero ~]# yum update Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit [URL]: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')> Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: atrpms. Please verify its path and try again [root@subzero ~]# .....
I am trying to download the contents from [URL] to my local system for off-line browsing but am having little to no success. I have tried using wget and httrack, although I can download the directory structure there does not seem to me any sfw files.
One of the few things that keeps me hanging onto my Windows partition is the Amazon.com MP3 Downloader.There's a way to download Debian 5, Ubuntu 9.04, OpenSUSE, and Fedora packages, but they've never worked in Debian-based distro's that I've used in the past (Ubuntu, Mint, Crunchbang).Has anyone found a way around this that I haven't found yet?
I have just upgraded my distro to 11.3 and unfortunately now I can't run my favourite NZB downloader (running from wine) Alt.binz. Is there any program GUI based that is user friendly and easy to use on Linux that someone can recommend for me.
I am vijaya, glad to meet you all via this forum and my question is I set a crontab for automatic downloading of files from internet by using wget but when I kept it for execution several process are running for the same at the back ground. My concern is to get only one copy, not many copies of the same file and not abled to find out where it's actually downloading.
has anyone been successful in using the Amazon MP3 downloader on 11.2? It does no longer work because it wants specific (old) versions of libboost*:
[krienke@bliss:~/tmp] 1001 > /usr/bin/amazonmp3 /usr/bin/amazonmp3: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_filesystem.so.1.36.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory [krienke@bliss:~/tmp] 1002 > locate libboost_filesystem /usr/lib/libboost_filesystem-mt.so /usr/lib/libboost_filesystem.so /usr/lib/libboost_filesystem.so.1.39.0
I notified Amazon about this, and they said they do not know if or when there will be a running version of the MP3 downloader available and without it there is no way to download any MP3 from Amazon. They gave me back my money and recommended to buy elsewhere....
Does anyone know if installing the old version of libboost (from 11.1) will work? What else, aside from amazons downloader, does use libboost*? So what app might fail if I install the old version of libboost suitable for the downloader?
just wondering what others are using to find and find and download new music. I'm also curious to know of other alternatives to Nicotine+, which I've been using for a little while. I've recently found a nice little widget called Seesu, which is great so far. It lets you search up bands and listen to their songs, and you can download the .mp3 for free afterwards if you like it. Anyway, enough of my pseudo-advertising.
What do you all do to find new music? Are torrent clients like Vuze the way to go, or is software like Nicotine+ better suited for the job? Perhaps you prefer the way of sites like Bandcamp, or by downloading from various online music stores. In any event, it'd be interesting to see how you all go about building onto your playlists.
i can only get 64bit from amazon's site. I tried running windows version in wine but it failed to work.edit: due to a mislabeled CD, I had errantly installed the 64bit version of Ubuntu and had not known until I was told later in this thread.
using ubuntu 10.04 I have followed the instructions here: [URL] for installing the Amazon downloader. I was able to purchase and download the .amz file from amazon, but my system doesn't know what to do with it. IOWS, if I click on the .amz file from the file browser or from firefox, it is opened as a binary file in gedit. Unfortunately, I can't locate where the downloader executable was installed and don't know how to make a file association.
