General :: Adding A Live USB To A Repository Via Command Line [Kubuntu 10.04]?

Sep 3, 2010

Couple of days I go I setup VLC using Kubuntu's graphic software manager, and installed the 3 plug-ins, one of which was related to pulse. After doing this sound stopped working in flash videos. I had read, not sure where, that Kubuntu didn't use pulse (which slipped my mind when setting up VLC).

So I make the mistake of removing everything which had pulse in it's name (again, via the graphic software manager). A message popped-up saying that some packages needed to be removed/edited (a LONG list, a big clue that I was doing something stupid I guess). I let it run it's course and after that it won't boot properly.

If I boot it normally it hangs at the Kubuntu screen with the five dots filling endlessly. If I press F1 it's stuck at "checking battery status."

Recovery mode boots, but the recovery option does nothing.

So I was wondering if I could boot into recovery mode and go into the terminal and add a live USB as a repository for apt, and try to salvage the install?

Or should I admit defeat and reinstall?

General :: Osx - How Does Mac's Command Line Compare To System

Aug 23, 2010

I love Ubuntu Linux - especially the commmand line. But I have to admit that, at least for now, Windows is more user-friendly - there's more software for it, more drivers, and more stuff just works.

Knowing that Mac is built on Unix makes me wonder if it's the sweet spot between them. But I wonder: how similar is the Mac command line to Linux's bash? Could I pick right up with using vim and bash scripting and git, etc? Would common commands like changing directories be different? Does anybody know an online "compare and contrast" resource?

General :: Joining Two Files From The Command Line?

Oct 21, 2010

I'm looking for a solution for the following simple problem. I have two files, fileA and fileB. Each file contains only one word per line, and they contain exactly the same number of lines. I would like to create a new file called fileAB, where the i-th line contains the i-th line of fileA, a Tab separator character, and then the i-th line of fileB. I know how to do it in Python or other scripting languages, but it would be nice to have a bash one-liner for that. Is it possible to do this in bash or any other Unix shell, using the tools that are usually available on the command line (e.g., sed, awk and such)?

General :: Looking For Non Compressed Small Command Line System Distro?

Oct 31, 2010

We are having a lot of trouble with this.

We need a command line version of Linux like ttylinux. Any command line will do with the latest kernel. It should be around 50 megs.

But the problem is, all these small Linux versions are LiveCD or have a compressed file system.

We need a SMALL linux distro, that we can install UNCOMPRESSED (no squashfs etc) on a hard disk.

This is so simple I'm sure I'm missing something..

General :: Delete Files On The Command Line With Regular Expressions?

May 6, 2010

Lets say I have 20 files named FOOXX, where XX is the number of the file, eg 01, 02 etc. At the moment, if I want to delete all files lower than the number 10, this is easy and I just use a wildcard, eg rm FOO0* However, if I want to delete specific files ina range, eg 13-15, this becomes more difficult. rm FPP[13-15] does not work, and asks me if I wish to delete all files. Likewse rm FOO1[3-5] wishes to delete all files that begin with FOO1 So, what is the best way to delete ranges of files like this? I have tried with both bash and zsh, and I don't think they differ so much for such a basic task?
