Mounting images that contain only one partition is rather easy. But how to mount image with multiple partitions? kpartx is the solution! You can list all partitions within the image with kpartx can be used to create maps from the block devices And those maps can be mounted as usual
Unfortunately, there is no way to pipe data directly to scp simply because scp can’t read from stdin. But you can abuse ssh to achieve the same result You can even do some funny things like
Simple question, simple answer:
When designing a generic class which needs a parameter that is comparable you will probably end up with something like this: Unfortunately, using Comparable isn’t as “easy”. The Page interface described above can’t be instantiated for a type like java.sql.Time, which is not Comparable to itself, but to a supertype (i.e., java.sql.Time implements Comparable<java.util.Date>). David Hall suggests: “If you’re going… Read more »
It was already quite some time ago that flashrom 0.9.0 was released by the coreboot-project developers, but anyway… Flashrom is a utility for identifying, reading, writing, verifying and erasing flash chips. Since Fedora already contains flashrom, there is no need to compile it yourself. Simply pull it from the repo: Usage is rather simple. For a list of all flags… Read more »
Currently, NXclient has some problems with handling the keyboard correctly on “newer” X-implementations (such as Fedora 10 and 11). Keys like the arrow keys or backspace are misinterpreted or don’t work at all. A quick workaround to fix (at least most of) the keys on the server side.
There is a nice java tutorial from Sun how to use ReseouceBundle for localization: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/i18n/resbundle/propfile.html. It’s actually rather simple: Just create a new ResourceBundle object by invoking the getBundle method, specifying the base name and Locale: The getBundle method first looks for a class file that matches the base name and the Locale. If it can’t find a class file,… Read more »
If you want to use GnuPG in a script and don’t want to be prompted for the passphrase, put the passphrase in a file called passphrase.txt and use this to encrypt: Of course, you can also use echo to specify your passphrase or you can pipe a tarball into gpg or even send a gpg encrypted tarball via e-mail Note… Read more »
The Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain algorithm is a (at least in the Linux-world) relatively new compression method. It features a very high compression ratio that is generally much higher than bzip21. Unfortunately there a quite a few different implementations. So creating and extracting lzma archives on different Linux distrubutions will vary. While the latest Fedora comes with GNU tar 1.22, which has… Read more »
Just as you can convert entire files from one charset to another, you can convert the filenames. For example: would recursively convert all files in the current directory from iso-8859-1 charset into utf-8. Well, not exactly. To finally rename the files you need the –notest flag. Otherwise convmv will perform a dry run without any changes.
