  1. I noticed you mentioned you had some "old apple stuff"....I'm in dire need of a 6800 processor, preferably one of the ceramic (not the plastic) models. Is your apple stuff old enough that one of them would by chance have a 6800, or are they newer than that?
  2. Theres obviously some major problems with this: 1 - Not UNIX, so UNIX software doesn't work with it 2 - [Almost] no programs for the thing 3 - Forced to use a GUI
  3. Yes,. theres two One is called Cygwin, the others is a proprietary Windows product that emulates a POSIX environment. I'd actually recommend the Windows product, because rather sitting slowly in User Space like Cygwin does, it actually uses WIndow's POSIX interface. Better preformance.
  4. ....You could have avoided the loss of thousands of dolars in equipment, and months of work for......a $10 Surge Protector. Or better yet, a $100 UPS
  5. Er, DHCP has standards for automatically retreiving the nameserver. You shouldn't have to set it if you're using DHCP.
  6. This could be several things. First of all, check your hardware. If any of your drives aren't plugged in, aren't functioning correctly, etc, this could be a problem. Also, you may have not compiled your kernel with the correct hardware drivers for your drive to function. If your drive is SCSI, make sure you include SCSI drivers. If its ATA, make sure you include the correct drivers. Have you actually tried framebuffer? A lot of people associate the framebuffer boot logo you can activate with framebuffer. You might have framebuffer enabled and just have the boot logo disabled. If not. double check your kernel config. Make sure you have the right drivers for the right cards, and double check that your lilo.conf is set up.
  7. I remember reading that, and from what I remember its all true, but they make it sound bad. What it basicaly said was that Linux is a clone of UNIX, which it sort of is (it would be better to say it was a POSIX Compliant system). Theres nothing wrong with that. The Open Group actually sets forth the standards for POSIX, and encourages them to be followed.
  8. Well, thats to be expected. The PPC series were the first to have processors specially adapted to run the Mac operating systems. First of all, the emulated processor has to be run within the confines of the scheduler on Linux, which is one big roadbock....Then theres also the fact that intstructions that might take 1 clock cycle on a tuned Mac processor might take many, many more on an Intel processor.

  10. /usr/bin/ls is symlinked to /bin/ls
  11. I know that. I've understood that fromt he start, that gnuls things its being fed a command line option. However, the fact remains that I HAVE NO FILE NAMED --1 ON MY HARD DRIVE.
  12. Yeah, FreeNet proved me wrong this morning..it is *possible* to have a file named --1.....but I don't HAVE a file named --1 anywhere on my system.....anyway, someone would have to want to fuck with you, making a file named --1 because its (as we've seen) impossible to use wiht most CLI tools. Anyway, I don't think its a case of (for some strange reason) their beign a file named --1. I think something strange is going on.
  13. Note that \--1 != --1. elimist@revolution:~$ touch "--1" touch: unrecognized option `--1' Try `touch --help' for more information. elimist@revolution:~$ ls -l "--1" /usr/bin/ls: unrecognized option `--1' Try `/usr/bin/ls --help' for more information. elimist@revolution:~$ rm "--1" rm: unrecognized option `--1' Try `rm --help' for more information. I have no idea if you could create --1 with low level system calls like fopen. I heavily doubt it. Even if you could, it'd be something you'd pretty much have to do purposely.
  14. Well, I was removing a package on my slackware system earlier, planning on upgrading it manually. I run removepkg, then yet: ls: unrecognized option `---1' Try `ls --help' for more information. So I fire up verbosity (/bin/sh -v) on the script to see why something is calling /bin/ls --1... Removing package /var/log/packages/mysql-4.0.15a-i486-1... Removing files: ls * | sed "/^$2$/d" ls: unrecognized option `---1' Try `ls --help' for more information. Now, since * will return all the files in the current working directory, you'd assume it was finding a file called ---1, which isn't possible on POSIX systems. Anyone have any suggestions as to whats up?
