I have created the following script which runs very well when it is executed alone.This script is to be run by a third party application (Oracle clusterware).The script (when is run by the application) doesn't successfully execute the xclock command. It even doesn't return the $USER variable.Following is what I got:

# Copy of the script

Software :: Xclock Running From Start Script Doesn't Display Correctly?

Feb 21, 2011

I recently dist-upgraded from Debian 5 to 6 (squeeze). Since then, the xclock I run from my window manager's start script isn't displaying correctly (it displays only a "0"). The thing is, if I run the same command in my start script in my terminal, it works just fine, as it has always done...

I use this rather "old" X applications because I like my programs simple/not buggy/fast, and it's resulting a rather annoying problem (being that apparently nobody else has it...).
All other programs in my start script (gnome-terminal, emacs, xmodmap, etc) are working with no problems whatsoever.

My window manager: sawfish

Command to run xclock in my start script:

xclock -digital -brief -geometry -0+0
Attached picture:
Top: xclock initialized by start script
Bottom: xclock initialized by terminal

Ubuntu :: Lucid - Cannot Display Xclock On Remote Machine

I'm having trouble displaying Xwindows programs on a remote machine. If I run "ssh -X newmachine" and I login and then run a program like xclock, I get the error message:
Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

If I run the same command to an anothermachine which is running Ubuntu 8.04 it works fine and xclock displays on my localmachine. If I run the command "echo $DISPLAY" on newmachine, I see:

Also, I have checked and xauth is installed on newmachine. What setting I have to change on Ubuntu 10.04 to allow remote display of Xwindows programs?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot See Network Icon - Nm-applet Running - Notification Area Running

Dec 25, 2010

Hi. I have Ubuntu 10.04, nm-applet is running in the background, my battery icon and sound icon are showing but my network icon has been missing for the past 2 days. It was working fine before but now it's not. How can I fix this issue if I don't have an ethernet cord? Is there a way to roll back the recent updates or do I need to reinstall my network manager?

I've tried restarting the system and I've tried killing nm-applet and reloading it using Alt F2. I get some Debug error.

When I try to run nm-applet --sm-disable

It says an instance is already running and then gives me a warning.

I tried removing "iface eth0 inet dhcp" from /etc/network/interfaces and then tried restarting by "sudo /etc/initi.d/networking restart"

It says:

What can I do to connect to the internet? I have a flash stick if its possible to download a .deb package on this mac and transfer it over to my other laptop to fix the problem. If its possible.

Debian :: Running Same Process Multiple Times(from Another Account) / An Instance Of Newsbeuter Is Already Running Error?

Aug 6, 2010

Sometimes I connect to my Debian box from another computer (using SSH on Cygwin or Linux), and once ina while I want to run some console apps. And sometimes some of these apps might complain about "another intance, Error: an instance of newsbeuter is already running (PID: 2496)". Is there a work around for this issue at all(without killing the original instance") ? The reason I do not want to kill the app because there might be 2 users connected to the same machine that might be using the same app.

Red Hat :: Running IPmonitor To Monitor The Disk Usage On Our Servers - Running Df -h

Mar 19, 2010

We are running IPmonitor to monitor the disk usage on our Linux servers. It does not seem to coincide with what is reported when running df -h. For example on a Red Hat 5.3 server - our IPmonitor shows that 85% is used on the /usr partition, however when I do a df -h on the server it shows that 91% is used. Why there would be a discrepancy? IPmonitor uses SNMP.

Programming :: Cron And Fsarchiver Reportedly Running Not Actually Running?

Jun 1, 2010

My root Vixie cron crontab is set to perform a system snapshot via fsarchiver: 0 0 * * * fsarchiver savefs -o -A /backups/p30_root.fsa /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3 The command itself works fine, generating about a 7G snapshot of my Suse server. I then wish to rsync this to a NAS I have located in another building: 0 3 * * * rsync -av -e ssh --delete /backups/ root{at address}:/DataVolume/os_backups/

(yes, I'm rsyncing as root. I absolutely loathe it, but I got thrown into an quasi-SA position with a ridiculous to-do list and no time to do it. I'm having to make things just work and then go back and try to improve them/learn how. I couldn't make it work in a non-root way quick enough, so for now I'm having to cron rsync jobs as root because of all the differing file permissions on this samba/MySql server. I set the NAS to only accepts ssh from the server IP, and we're behind a campus firewall... It's serious trial by fire.) The crontab also has rsync commands for the samba areas, our specialized chemistry software and affiliated MySQL databases............

Software :: Prevent Rsync From Running If Another Instance Is Running?

Mar 29, 2011

On my crontab there is an entry to run a script I wrote that backs up my local files to my remote server. It was working great, running once a day. However, I now want to make the script run every hour.The problem is that if there are too manyfiles to transfer (Example:I ripped a DVD in the last hour) the actual backup may take longer than 60 minutes.So I want to modify the script to check if my backup script, based on rsync, is running. If rsync is still running then do nothing and exit the script. If it is not running, execute the script as normal.

General :: Running Mac OS X In A VM On A Mac

Aug 30, 2011

I have a 2011 MacBook Pro and I'm getting really frustrated with Lion. I was a long time Linux user prior to getting my first MacBook (I wanted the hardware, not the software, but stuck with it) and I'm thinking about returning, however, I do iPhone development so I need to have OS X available. Is there an easy solution to run Lion in a VM on Linux? It's not technically a Hackintosh because it's running on Mac hardware, but I'm afraid I'll end up having to do some Hackintoshing anyhow.

General :: Fan Keeps Running Once Started?

Feb 28, 2011

My problem is that my fan will keep running quite quickly once started. It will keep running till reboot independently of CPU usage and temperature. To check the temperature I installed lm-sensors. Output of temperature related commands and kernel version are below. Shouldnt they all give the temperature? My machine is a Toshiba Satellite pro L300. Eg. at the moment my fan is running quite quickly although CPU usage is 3-4% and the temperature according to lm-sensors is approximately 40-45 degrees Celcius.

:~$ acpi --thermal
Battery 0: Full, 100%
Thermal 0: ok, 0.0 degrees C
:~$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
