Trust me there is nothing bad about writting over Vista, writting over any Windows install is a good thing, wipe of the enemy and leave only the true soliders

Sure you can just take a look at forking the process using fork() and that pass the execution of the process using execvp() then korn will spawn a new instance of a shell for each process so you don't have to wait for one to finish first.

Thanks

I have a question regarding multiple parameter functions in C. If for example we rtake printf, we can pass different lenghted parameters to it

printf("");
printf("%d",num);
etc.....

How do I make a function which can take different parameters, so I don't always have to pass a static list of parameters to it

Thanks

Well thats the grub shell prompt. I'm kinda unsure how you only have that but you can do something like grub>kernel (hd0,0)/boot/kernel to boot into Linux. The way the command will work out is "kernel" which tells grub you want to load a kernel, (hd0,0) or the hard disk and partition number, because you said you only have Linux I'm going to bet it's (hd0,0) and then you have to say where you kernel is. This is done by the location and the name of the kernel so if the /boot directory is one it's own partition then you need only to do (hd0,0)kernelname or if it's /boot is not it's own partition then (hd0,0)/boot/kernelname. Then when you hit enter grub will load the kernel and once it's loaded you just type boot and press enter and you'll be booted into Linux. so the syntax works out to:

grub>kernel (hd0,0)/boot/kernelname

or

grub>kernel (hd0,0)/kernelname.

I hope this is helpful

Thanks

Simple just do pico .file

Then create a aliase

so ALIASE mydt date ............

That should work of course I just want to state that I've never actually done this. I also have a Linux course but the prof I have is a complete idiot.
He doesn't think theres a difference between Gcc 3 and Gcc 4 and doesn't understand how to work directly wit hthe kernel.

So I just bought new 750 GB HDD SATA and I partitioned it and mkfs.ext3 on it and all these steps tell me 750GB. Well I then mkdir /mnt/storage and mount my new HDD there only to find it's only giving me 650GB of free space.

when I run DF is registers that I have 750 GB, CFDISK and FDISK both register 750GB so my question is where did the 100 GB go, any ideas ?

Thanks

I'm working on this project on linux right now.

It involves the following parts:

1) A deck of cards
2) A hand of cards
3) Link Lists.

I've pastebined the code. Now the project uses linked lists, as I'm not a comp sci student I'm doing this for interest. I'm actually a comp eng student so my C background is only meant to be good for basic work. I do alot of assembler if that helps.

So here's how the program works, I make a list of cards (the deck), the numbers 2 - 14 appear 4 times so 2 - Ace , 4 times as to simulate a deck. Then I randomize a number using rand. rand is seeded by Time(NULL). The random value is between 2 - 14 and then the function ListSearch goes thought the deck and when it finds the value in the deck it assigns that value to the hand. Of course then I remove the node of the list that is matched so it can't be picked up again.

Here's what is actually happening. When my function finds the value it is in deed assigning it to the hand but it's remove (Random Number - 1) from the list and there for when you do the call multiple times to make the entire hand only a few cards are missing from the deck of it crashes.

Now I've gone though google and wiki and yet still don't know why this happening, can anyone help.

Thanks

Docmur

Wow thats weird man. I've heard of stuff like this happening and I really don't know what to tell you. Maybe the install is putting a driver in place which isn't for lack of a better word playing nice. Because in both cases it seems the kernel is stalling out after it trys to load a module or driver

Ya, Actually I've tried Arch and it's really good, but it has some really odd quarks to it that I found to be very hard to solve around. Just little things but I would label them important, such as Video players and etc...
As for slackware, I've been thinking about giving it a go. I'm kind of at the point in my skill level that I want to try a distro that will teach me some new tricks not just rehash the old ones.

Ya, I've check that site. I'm not opposed to trying out the Distro's they mention my only point here was to try and poll the other users here. Maybe the've come accross interesting Distro's and what not

Hey everyone,

Right now I'm using Gentoo and it's awesome, I've used Ubuntu and it was awesome. I'm wondering if there are any new Distro's coming out or that are out that incorporate anything new or interesting.
I want to find an interesting Linux system. You know not something that it big name, Not that I'm not happy with Gentoo or Ubuntu but I'd like to try something new.

Any Ideas

Thanks

well at that speed it's up to you. But I guess if you want my opion go with Debian, Slackware or Gentoo. All 3 are fast and can be made slip lined so you can save resources. Say off the ubnutu because right now it's a work horse and sucks up the computer. If you can wait go with Gentoo and then you'll have about the most speed you can get. To note anyother good Linux distro's I've tired Arch and it was great that could be a go ahead to.

The limit I would say you have is the ram so just use a nice sized swap and you'll be fine
:-)

Thanks
