Fedora :: Shortcuts To Local Kernel Directories

Jun 7, 2009

When the kernel is updated, directories matching the new version name are created for documentation and source, for example /usr/share/doc/kernel-doc- and /usr/src/kernels/ Shortcuts to accessing these directories could be handy but the directory names keep changing. A simple way to capture the new names is to assign the most recent to environment variables. This can be done in /etc/bashrc to make them available to all users and subshells. Additionally, the shell option cdable_vars is set to make the kerneldoc and kernelsrc variables useful as arguments to cd. At the command line, cd kerneldoc or kernelsrc changes the directory to the proper directory for the current kernel version.

shopt -s cdable_vars # cd searches env, e.g. cd kerneldoc, kernelsrc
export kerneldoc=$(ls -dtp /usr/share/doc/kernel-doc* | grep -m1 ".*")Documentation
export kernelsrc=$(ls -dtp /usr/src/kernels/* | grep -m1 ".*")

ls is applied to the parent directory of the kernel version directories. -d tells ls to output directory names instead of their content. -t tells ls to sort by time, most recent first. -p tells ls to use a slash for directory delimiter (this is the default and rarely changed but the argument is included to be sure). The ls output is piped to grep. -m1 tells grep to stop after the first match to ".*", which is the first directory in the ls output.

Symbolic links can provide convenient GUI access to the directories but these need to be updated along with the kernel. I use a directory called /shared for my files that are accessible to all users. I have placed in it a bash script called kernelref, which takes advantage of the kerneldoc and kernelsrc variables to update the links. This script should be run whenever the kernel is updated.

/bin/rm /shared/kerneldoc
/bin/rm /shared/kernelsrc
ln -s $kerneldoc /shared/kerneldoc
ln -s $kernelsrc /shared/kernelsrc

Ubuntu :: Mount FTP Directories To Local Fs - Curlftpfs?

Aug 28, 2010

I'm looking for a way to mount remote ftp directories to local filesystem in order to interact with them as if were local resources. I found several tutorials that recommend curlftpfs, but this project seems no longer maintained (last update on sourceforge goes back to Apr 2007).

So, is curlftpfs still the best choice or is there something newer which I could rely on?

Fedora :: Add Shortcuts To KDE Menu?

Jul 13, 2010

I upgraded to F13 and I think its 13 for a reason - very unlucky for me. Screwed up my other Windows partition and I had to reinstall the entire machine (both OS's). Installing from scratch, didn't install everything, like I wanted. This changed in F13 install procedure. So now I'm trying to install Pidgin. Installed it with yum, but there's no shortcut in KDE menu. Why doesn't the install add this link? How do I add it?

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

Fedora :: Keyboard Shortcuts Out Of <CNTL>?

Aug 31, 2010

1) Go to the above website using Firefox browser. Wait for "Done".2) Type the letters 'J', 'u', 's', 't', and ' ' in sequence.On my system (Fedora 13/32bit) the window scrolls several lines immediately after I key in the space character, just as if I had clicked on the gray area in the scroll bar.Why?I've had a similar thing happen several times (over the years) while writing replies in Yahoo mail but don't know what the key sequence was.he result, however, is that the Firefox browser window closes and I lose everything I've written.Shouldn't control keys HAVE to be pressed to initiate keyboard shortcuts?

General :: Windows 7 Shortcuts In Fedora?

May 31, 2010

I recently installed Fedora, after trying Ubuntu and Opensuse. And it really works great! I'm still getting used to it, I had accidentally deleted my wireless network driver when I was deleting some packages. I'm only missing those Win 7 shortcuts, like 'windowskey + up' to maximize the window and 'windowskey + left' to resize the window to half of the screen and place it on the left. Is there any way I can get those in Fedora?

Fedora :: Use Keyboard Shortcuts To Start Applications In KDE?

May 31, 2010

It is possible to set a keyboard shortcut to start an application in KDE? As example, win+f to start firefox. I know it is an option in menu editor, but it doesn't work. From the many distros I tried with KDE ( openSUSE, Arch, Gentoo, Mandriva ), only in Fedora 12 worked this option, and I hoped it will in F13 too, this is one of the reasons I installed Fedora. So it is a bug, regression, or I am doing things not the right way?

Fedora :: Volume Keyboard Shortcuts Not Working Properly

Aug 1, 2009

I just installed F11 on my new laptop (Acer Timeline 3810T) and I have the following issue when adjusting volume. The keyboard shortcuts work, but they don't raise/lower the volume smoothly, instead they do it in 4 or 5 increments total. What's weird is that the notification that appears in the screen when I adjust the volume (the whitish square with a picture of a speaker, I think it's part of Compiz) shows the the volume changing in small increments, but when I get to the 3rd or 4th little increment from the right the volume is already muted. If I look at the alsa volume controls at the same time, I see it changing by the 4 or 5 big increments.

Fedora :: Use Local Mirror For Yum - Set No Proxy For Local Mirror?

I'm using f12. My university has recently become a mirror for fedora packages. But i'm facing a trivial problem. I have set proxy for yum so that the packages that are not available on local mirror can be downloaded from other mirrors. But then i don't know how to set no proxy for my local server. Consequently it is not using my local mirror at all. Tell me how to set no proxy for the local mirror. I want my local mirror because it's damn fast. My proxy settings are like this (they go in /etc/yum.conf):

Fedora :: Edit The Permissions For Directories In 12?

Mar 22, 2010

I tried using Nautilus - nada (under root no less). Tried using file browser (nada again) Tried going to "places" and the directory I wanted - right click, permissions won't let me change squat. The folders I want to change are shared folders on my network at home and sometimes I transfer files between computers to different places. Can't do it tho, cuz of the permissions. Is CHMOD the answer? If so, how do I do it? For instance, In terminal, I issued the command (as root) chmod 777 movies I thought this would allow any device in the house to write to this directory, but the permissions didn't change at all. So what do I have to do?

On my Ubuntu machine I simply run Nautilus as root and it allows me to do this.
So what's different in Fedora?

Fedora :: $PATH Is Repeating Directories

May 13, 2010

I'm running Fedora Core 12 x86_64. I started out using the default bash shell (and customized the .bashrc, etc. as necessary) but had to switch to csh for this one scientific package that requires that shell.

The issue is that my $PATH has unwanted redundancy and I can't figure out how to fix it:


The csh shell was completely new to me so I'm sure I made a mistake somewhere.

Below are the files that might be relevant for diagnosing this problem. I don't think I touched /etc/csh.login or /etc/csh.cshrc but I might have accidentally done so.
