In this post I cover the interesting use of one of the important Perl File::Basename routines: fileparse().
Since Oct 3rd, 2011 basic kernel.org started its functioning!
When I decided to make changes in the Ubuntu Natty Linux kernel (Version 2.6.38) for Pandaboard on my laptop. I thought, it would be a straight forward affair to build it and flash the generated image onto the Pandaboard’s SD card and see it running smoothly…
That time did not know that I would need to change my plan and search the Internet for right build instructions, which eventually I could not find.
Later I decided to go for another option, native build the Kernel on the Pandaboard itself..
While working on Pandaboard related project, which boots using a SD card, I needed to backup the SD card before I experimented with boot sequences, display resolution, etc. I knew direct cpying the two partitions (FAT32 and linux partition) to backup may not be a 100% backup.
Earlier this month, a number of servers in the kernel.org infrastructure were compromised. We discovered this August 28th. While we currently believe that the source code repositories were unaffected, we are in the process of verifying this and taking steps to enhance security across the kernel.org infrastructure.
This post will continue from Useful Linux Commands: Part I and list the commands which I found useful in Linux environment.
Must mention the greatness of the Linux command line tools especially its various thoughtful switches/options. It makes the life of developers very easy and saves a lot of time. More importantly it helps people like me to continue to be lazy (did I say smart!?!)..
Recently I came across Peter Norvig’s great, well written article on learning Programming Languages, and how it can NOT be taught in a few days/hours.
