General :: Getting <<Back|Track Default Install Size?
Jan 24, 2011
I am planning to dual boot Bt4 + SL 6 or Debian 6 ( whatever comes first ) So i am wondering what will be the default disk footprint of Bt4... Never used it installed in HDD only in usb install or live mode...
I got offered a position with an IT firm that requires me to do system penetration testing I heard Back Track was the way to go. I was reading and came across some forums stating that BT4 has issues with wireless network adapters in laptops.The network adapter is a:
I instaled vmware and created a virtual machine which is bt4. first of all i cant creat an user password and i log on with root second when i run the command airmon-ng i cant get my device name or anything caz nothing comes up under interface or i forgot what its caled.
Ubuntu 10.04, xsane 0.996, Brother MFC 240c scanner.I just finished writing a long dissertation on my problem with this scanning environment (which I will spare you). In a nutshell the resulting image, when printed, is smaller than the original document. In writing my dissertation for this post I determined that the cause of the issue is that xsane believes I am scanning an 8.5 x 14 inch document when I am in fact scanning an 8.5 x 11 letter. So the question is... can I change the size to 8.5 x 11? and if so, how? I have not found anything in the xsane Preferences.
Using K3b 1.91.0 on Lucid in order to burn multitrack Video CDs.These burned fine before, and I made 5 working ones. Now having weird playback problem of burned VCDs first track looping back to the beginning instead of automatically advancing to later tracks. Same problem occurs on a variety of players including standalone DVD player. I can manually access the later tracks, but the later tracks don't continue automatically from track one.
The funny thing is that I'm using exactly the same mpeg VCD files that worked successfully before. I've got a feeling that the problem is some setting in K3b that I might have unintentionally changed, or else some nuance to how I'm adding the files to the project. I notice that when I add tracks to the project, a funny line always appears under a file name. Could that have anything to do with this problem? Also, would choosing "DAO" rather than "Auto" fix the problem? I'm tired of wasting the nice archival CD-Rs I bought!
I have been able to connect through a wired connection for a while, I have checked through many previous threads but I cannot seem to get the wireless to even pick up a signal, which this computer right next to it can pick up.
I changed the case of one letter ('N' to 'n') in a track name using Rhythmbox and the result is a file which is 7727 bytes smaller than the original (I saved a copy of the original file before editing the track name). The file is in ogg/vorbis format (160 Kb/s). I changed the track name back and the file size didn't change. However, the contents of the file are still drastically different (vastly more changed than merely the letter in the track name).I'm worried that Rhythmbox is doing something dreadful like decoding the file, changing the track name, and then completely re-encoding the file from scratch (meaning it runs the decoded audio through the lossy encoder to regenerate the file). Does anyone know whether or not Rhythmbox is doing this when the user edits the meta data (like the track name, artist, etc.)?
When I installed opensuse 11.2 64-bit (KDE) the installer set the root partition to 20GB by default. That seemed unnecessarily large, so I reduced it to 16GB. I then completed the install (basically a default KDE install minus games & educational stuff) and still had more than 8GB free. I'm aware that these days hard drive storage space is quite cheap, but it's not so cheap for me as I have an SSD. Would it not be reasonable to reduce the default root partition size to 12GB, or perhaps vary it according to the software package load selected?
I am using OS 11.0 Every time I boot my laptop (dell inspiron 9300 - ati video M300). I get the desktop display as 1920 X 1200. This is too large for my default. I use KRandRTray to resize back to 1024 X 768. How can I set 1024 X 768 as the default but still have the option to go to 1920 X 1200?
I'm dual booting with Win Xp at the moment and have been google-ing and tinkering about with my distro and i'm learning new stuff everyday but I have a question about something that's been bothering me. I think i've figured out that the / partition is similar to the C: Drive in windows which contains program files n stuff am i right? and the home partition which contains users and their files is an offshoot of the root?
So if this is the case, i was in the expert partitioner in YAST to see how the the drive was partitioned and was wondering if the / partition was too big and if i could decrease the size and add it to the /home?. My sys specs are 512mb RAM Dell Dimension 3000 with an 80GB HDD 2.8Ghz Intel Celeron. I also have a 80Gb and 160Gb External laptop drives mainly for my movies n music n stuff. Also is the Swap partition a good size for the spec of computer i have?
what can i do if i want that smplayer selects the DTS/AC3 track from a multitrack MKV file by default? for example, i've added for some MKV an AC3 audio track in order to use it with my receiver but on the MKV the "track 0" is on AAC and the "track 1" is on AC3 and always smplayer starts with the "track 0" so smplayer will select the "track 1" doing nothing by me side.
From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done: [URL]
The issue is I screw up my smb.conf by SWAT and I want now the default configuration with all comments back. I try:apt-get remove --purge samba > it leaves the default configuration in samba/ directorythe other way is to download source package....apt-get source sambaIs there some other quicker way how to get the default smb.conf file back?Yes but on Debian 5.0:I uninstall samba.Remove samba/ dir.Install samba.I'm unable to bring up nmbd daemon UP - missing samba/ dir with smb.conf. I create samba/ dir with smb.conf and nmbd is fine!
I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 and started messing around with my firewall, it got a little too complecated for me, so I just would like to be able to somehow restore the default iptables setting. Any idea how I can do this?
Well here's what I've done in grub.confpassword --md5 BLABLABLA /grub/admin_menu.lstNow that I enter some password, I can go to that menu and run my pvt. OS.But how to get back to original (or say public or default) grub menu?
In my Firefox (linux) I can change the page as A4 in File → Page Setup → Page Size. Doing this, I inform the browser to print my pages as A4, instead of the default of Letter. My printer doesn't have Letter paper size (it just exists in USA). If it forget to change the page size, I have to walk to it, press "change page size" to start printing it.
How do I set the default page size to A4 once and forever?
How does one back up the oses and increase the partition size?
I have a dual boot of Windows 7 and Ubuntu and have made the partitions for each too small. I want to save them and then reinstall them on the new partitions. I've tried clonezilla, but it only restores them to the original partitions. How can I reinstall them on the new partitions?
I usually change the default bottom panel settings so that I have it on the right hand edge of the screen, 100 pixels wide and auto hide checked. Until now, this has been fine, but with ubuntu 10.4, it has an awful banded look.
So, I tried using a solid colour and a custom background image and although this improves matters, there is still a banded section at the top that should not be there. When you have a few apps running, the taskbar shows the active app normally, but the background apps are banded again. Is there a way to fix this? It also makes the apps difficult to read.
I'm wondering if it's possible to change the default size of pdf and image icons on my whole filesystem because it doesn't look proportional to the other icons like the folders and text files and I really don't want to stretch each one of them everytime.
Here's an example:
The other way the size could be fixed is by going to edit > preferences > preview and just do never for each drop down but I don't want to lose the preview effect.
I recently upgraded my laptop from 10.04, to 10.10. -- And in so doing reinstalled the OS from scratch, and letting the system pick the partition sizes.
Code: My system: 2GB RAM 160 GB HDD HP 6910p
Here's the question: The Installer set aside 6GB as Swap space, leaving 154GB as a / partition for everything. I had always thought 2GB was plenty, or as a general rule twice the Physical Memory size, which would only be 4GB swap, not 6.
Can / should I reclaim some of that swap space, if so how much. -- I can using tools like GParted to resize the partitions. -- Or just leave it as is. Unfortunately, the Ubuntu 10.10 installed did not seem to use GParted, so it was a little harder to set up initially.
