It's time you Cali-for-ia Gurus come out of the woodwork and make it happen out there. I would imagine there is more Gurus in California per square inch than any place in the U.S., except maybe, Raleigh North Carolina You now have your marching orders from the CIO of your state , so lets make it happen. You have heard that old saying "what ever California does So goes the Nation" Read article below and get scoop.[URL]...
Back when I was first learning Linux, one of the questions that I kept wondering about was "what are all these files and directories for?" I couldn't find a resource that would explain them in a digestible manner. Specifically, I was looking for one that would allow me to look at a Linux filesystem interactively, collapsing and expanding folders to look at just the ones I was interested in at the moment. So later, when I got the opportunity, I wrote it.
But despite a ton of research, I'm still not totally knowledgeable on the subject. The most important thing I'm looking for right now is for experienced Linux/Unix people to tell me where I got stuff wrong, and for newbies to tell me how useful it is to them and which things need clarification. I'm also interested in technical and graphical ways to improve usability, like better icons, layout, etc. I know I need to be able to collapse long descriptions, but what would you like to see? The Works Cited list and a full introduction are still on the way as of this writing.
Without further ado: Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Explanation. You'll need a fairly recent browser that can handle XSLT; the actual info is stored as XML, and transformed into HTML with an XSLT stylesheet. This is still a work in progress, and I'll be updating it as the thread progresses.
Finally, would people be interested in collaborating with me on this, as an open-source project? I've never done anything like that, and I'm not sure how much time I'll be able to give it in the future, but I really think this should be continued and expanded.
Edit: Works Cited and decent intro are now in place.
KMail 1.11.4, KDE 4.2.4: I'm migrating from WinXP to Mandriva, and installed KMail at the weekend. Works fine, but I have a niggle - the message list displays headers grouped by month order. I'd like the option of having a simple list (no groups), and suspect that it could be done - but I haven't been able to find out how. I've checked in the Handbook without success, and a search in LQ hasn't turned up anything yet.Any suggestions gratefully received. If this isn't the right place for a KMail query,

Im trying to instal Sun Virtualbox but when download completes and I click on install I get the following error>>Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) I wont even bother with this software if there are others out there that are as easy to use. I used it on Windows and thought it was great ! (thats how I eventually switched to Linux, by using it virtually at first)
Using IMAP to retrieve emails in Evolution is not working correctly. Some messages are recieved, others are not. Those messages that cannot be recieved, reports the following error message: Unable to retrieve message
I was trying to use Message Queues for sending message from aninserted kernel module to user space. The function sys_msgsnd failedgiving the obvious error -EFAULT.However, I was able to send the message from kernel to user space when I had made the same driver part of kernel (and not inserting it).How is that possible?I am using linux.2.6.19.x (arch=ppc)I now use Netlink socket to communicate from kernel to user, but the aboveproblem seemed strange to me.
I am compiling gstreamer for my ARM board. When i compile that i am not getting "debug" messages. so i want "debug messages" while make my gstreamer. i added "./configure --enable-debug" but still i not getting debug message while i "make".
I am working on the script to parsing the log message . the followings are my task:1. Read the multiple log files, such as N1-2009-10-01, N2-2009-10-2, N3-2010-01-02....2. Parse the specific message, such as "aaaa"3. If found the "aaaa" message in the log file and export to excel file PS. i use zgrep:zgrep -a --text "aaaa" * > /home/TTS/myfileand inside file looks like:
I'm working on a bash script that will be run regularly via a cronjob. As there is no easy way for the user to see if it's running in the background, I'd like a have some kind of pop up window what say's something like "Process started" and "Process finished" when it's complete. Ive read though some similar threads and came across xmessage. It kind of does what I want, with the exception of:-Id like the message Process started to stay up for the whole process, but it looks like the script wont continue until the xmessage window is closed. I cant get any xmessages to appear when the script is run from a cronjob. It only appears if I run the script manually from a terminal window. Which is no good for me. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great and just to add, it's doesn't have to be xmessage, any text box would do. I'm working with Redhat 4 and 5, if that makes a difference. Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because he only recognises the element of surprise.
I am using Ubuntu as my os.I have read that we can change the startup message.So i go to etc directory as root, and found file called "motd" and try to open it.But it says "The Link "motd" is Broken. Move it to Trash?"This link cannot be used, because its target "/var/run/motd" doesn't exist.So how can i make startup message.why i couldnt open that file

My issue is with my Fedora 9 virtual machine that is running a Scalix mail server (host is F12).
The F9 VM was running fine until this morning when for no reason it crashed as I attempted to initiate a realVNC connection with it.
After a reboot users were unable to send mail to external addresses. When I try to check the network settings by selecting "System" -> "Administration" -> "Network", I receive the following error message:
If I try to copy a file onto a NTFS partition in Linux, I get a warning message Could not change permissions for <file-name>. Is there any way to suppress this message ? I can live with this message while I copy the files in terminal, but when transferring from Dolphin a modal dialog box is shown and it gets pretty irritating. I'm using openSUSE 11.2, on KDE 4.4 RC.
I need to pop up a message, e.g.: "file is smaller then 30 KBytes!" when a file is smaller then 30 KBytes. How could i write an "if then else" script to pop up a zenity message, when e.g.: "FILE" is smaller then 30 KByte?
I need to display a message before any login on a Linux box, either locally and for remote login via SSH. How can I achieve this? "issue" and "Banner" are the two concepts I need to use to provide a message for every user before they log into the system.
While installing linux, i got error message when i tried to create LV for /boot... i checked with my friends n they told me that /boot should be a standard partition... why is that, i asked them but they had no good explanation for it... could someone please explain me why do we create standard partition for /boot, why can't i use LV??? also i heard that its good practice to create separate partitions (LV or standard) for /, /home, swap & other major directories instead of 1 partition for all these.
When I am compiling from the src, I run the ./configure script. While there might be error sometimes, I 'd like to ask, what're the 3 stars( ***) in front of the msg stand for? Do they stand for critical errors?
I am quite new to Linux, so bear with me if I ask silly questions. For homework (and fun) purposes I needed to create a bootable USB of Fedora12. Which I did, successfully I might add However, when I rebooted the computer, I got this puzzling error message code...
I pulled down a distro of Fedora 14 and am trying to install it on an older Dell 4400 Dimension. The box has a 1.6GHz Pentium 4 and 1G of RAM. I followed the instructions on the Fedora Project site to burn an .iso image to CD and then set the BIOS to boot from the CD. It boots, sorta, goes through the first screen or two and then pops a blue box saying "Please check pc display settings" and at that point I can't tell what is happening behind the kimono.
