OpenSUSE Network :: Strange Ifconfig Statistics For Eth0 With Kernel?

The computer and system in question is the laptop from my description and openSUSE 11.3 with a different kernel from this repository :[URL] to move this thread if it should reside in the beta/prerelease forums section. The IMHO relevant information about my hardware and system is shown below.

The kernel I'm using :

Programming :: Kernel Module "read()" Return Value?

Apr 6, 2010

I wrote a character device driver for an Embedded Linux build (Kernel Revision running on ARM9. In the module's "read()" function, I'm returning the number of bytes that were copied into the user buffer. I saw some module code samples online and in most cases the "read()" function is returning the number of bytes read.The very strange behavior I saw in my case was, if I use a variable to return the value from the module's "read()" function, the user application reading from the module always saw "0".For instance:

static int zlg7289_read(struct file *file, char *buf, size_t count, loff_t *ppos)

Programming :: Allocate A Cpu Core For Kernel Process?

Aug 3, 2010

My system has Intel Xeon 4-core cpu(hyperthreading 8-core) and run 64-bit linux. I want to allocate one core for general process(kernel process & other processes). And then, I want to allocate the rest of core for the specific multi-thread program.

Q1: I know that I can pthread_setaffinity() for user-mode thread and mpstat for monitoring. So, how can I allocate a core for kernel process and monitor it?

Q2: How can I restrict use of the cores for the multi-thread program? I don't want kernel process to use the cores for the multi-thread program.

General :: Init.d Process Does Not Return To Prompt?

Jul 9, 2010

I have a script in /etc/rc.d/init.d named foo. I want to start/stop/restart my process as follows:$ foo start But I do not see the [OK] message once it starts. There is no shell prompt returned either. It seems that my own process is the problem. The executable that foo calls is built from this sample code:

int main()
do {
printf("Hello world
} while (1);

Do I have to return some kind of signal handle for this to work?

Slackware :: Kernel Hang During Boot Process - Slack 13.1 Stable W/ Kernel

Jun 20, 2010

I installed a fresh copy of Slackware 13.1 (stable) on one of my media servers and I am experiencing something strange.... When I power up the machine, I see the kernel booting, no errors, until it gets to the point where it says:

And then randomly freeze there.... Well the machine is not totally frozen because the cursor still blinks. But it will never continue... Like I said, this happens on a random basis... After a reset, it might go through or simply stall at the same spot.

I remember after installing Slack 13.1, I rebooted the machine but forgot to remove the DVD from the player, so the install routine started up, and froze at the same point when it was loading the kernel for the setup programs...

My mobo is a MSI k9N platinum.

I never had this problem before.... (well I never used 13.1 before). Since I got this machine, I used slack 12.2 and slack 13-current with success.

This problem makes the machine extremely unreliable because I intent to use it as a backup and media server, so chances I will WOL the machine and use it remotely... if that happens.

Programming :: Else &amp; Return Values?

Oct 12, 2010

i am having two small issues with a function i have made.sorry if it is a mess, i am still learning bash.the first is calling the nonpersistssh function (second line) and assigning the return value to nonpersistdiag.the function returns 1, but nonpersistdiag seems to only contain 0. i am unsure on how to proceed.the second problem is the nested else clause on line 10. it is a syntactical error. how would i declare it correctly?

Code: function endsession(){
nonpersistdiag=$[nonpersistssh]# a function that returns an exit code
sudo /etc/init.d/ssh stop; sshdiag=$?

Programming :: What Exactly Does Echo $0 Return

Jan 18, 2010

I'm confused about what "echo $0" in a shell actually return. Consider these tests:

[root@e11apvl151 ~]# # Login shell:
[root@e11apvl151 ~]# echo $0
[root@e11apvl151 ~]# # Starting a new shell
[root@e11apvl151 ~]# bash
[root@e11apvl151 ~]# echo $0
[root@e11apvl151 ~]# screen
[root@e11apvl151 ~]# echo $0

Depending on wether the shell is a login shell, a regular shell, or a screen utility, I get different results.

Programming :: Tell If Grep Didn't Return Anything?

Mar 15, 2011

I have a file:


I want to see if all the records in the file are present in the contents of the files of a particular directory.

Basically I want to say if grep doesn't return anything, then report.

For example in /tmp dir I have 4 files and flast 2 values (787862348 and 766428634) are present in the files of /tmp dir, but first one (979798707) is not. I want to echo that in a reporting file.

something like:

while read line
# if ! grep -rl $line /tmp
echo $line >> are_not_present
done < "myFile"

How do I achieve " if ! grep -rl $line /tmp"? That is, if the line is found by grep, then grep will print the output, but if grep does'nt find it, it will print nothing. How can I check if grep didn't find it (i.e. printed nothing)?

Programming :: Echo Hello Command Does Not Return

Jan 11, 2010

I am testing the serial ports on a Single Board Computer(SBC) running Linux kernel 2.6.29. I usually do this by connecting the serial port to another PC serial port, then doing "cat /dev/ttyS0" on PC and "echo hello > /dev/ttyS0" on the SBC. However in the current system, "echo hello > /dev/ttyS0" command does not return at all! Also no characters appear on the destination port. I am running the echo command as root. The system boot messages show that the serial port in indeed /dev/ttyS0.

Programming :: Getting Return Value From Program Ran In Background?

Mar 10, 2010

I think my title pretty much explains it. I am writing a script and I want to start a program in the background, and when that program finishes I want to check the return value to make sure there was no error.For example normal I would do something like this:

if [ ! $? -eq 0 ]; then
echo "There was an error"
exit 1

Now I want to do something like this:

PRTN=`program1 &`
if [ ! $? -eq 0 ]; then


In this case if program2 finishes before program1, I don't think the return value from program1 $PRTN would be valid at the time it is checked.

Programming :: Prevent Echo As Return Value?

Jan 25, 2010

I have always encountered this problem in ubuntu bash shell scripts that echo command in a function will be treated as a return value when used in a function. e.g.


The output would simply be xyz. Hence the echo seems to function as a "return" command when used in a function with a return value.

Programming :: Pthreads Return Value Valid Or Not

Jun 14, 2010

I have confusion regarding pthreads return value. All in short, is the is a valid return value ?

void * myThrRoutine(void *arg)
struct myStruct **myst = (struct myStruct**) arg;
cout<<"In thread "<<(*myst)->var<<(*myst)->msg<<endl;
int x = 20;

This seems to work fine on pthread_join , but I want to ensure it is not by chance.
