Hello all...

Here's what I'm trying to accomplish on the command line:
I want to print all of the lines in a file that show a certain date (in the log file the date is 28/08/2011) AND the following 2 words: Installing package

So: If the line has 28/08/2011 AND (a few words later... it changes) Installing package print it to the screen

I tried several egrep commands but they either created egrep errors or showed either the date OR the Installing OR package roll

Thanks for the help
ps: Why do this? I'm trying to list the packages installed on a certain date on another distro

1) #!... it manages the rest of the distros and controls Grub (need i say more? lol) big_smile
2) Fedora 15 (the wifes)
3) Slackware current
4) Gentoo/Sabayon fluxbox, XFCE/Gnome3 (the best Gnome3 implementation in my opinion)

One more thing. If any system update offers to do anything to xserver or xorg, uninstall fglrx, reboot and only then proceed with the upgrades. The same goes for the kernel, although doing Xserver upgrades with fglrx will render your system unbootable. I was smart enough to do just that today, and had to reinstall big_smile

This UN-installation, do upgrades and then RE-installation ... Is that only for ATI or should it be done for other cards as well? (nVidia, etc.)

Doesn't dkms handle the Kernel modules automatically?

I have to ask this here... the friendliest and in my humble opinion... the most knowledgeable forum due to the combined/not stuck-up non-cocky Linux brain power tongue

If I have a partition (lets say /sda1) and it's 100gb... can I have 2 Logical Volume Groups in there?
or do I need /sda1 (50gb) for the first and /sda2 (50gb) for the second?

Of course within the LVG's I could have whatever I want within space restrictions.... just curious if two different distributions Volume Groups can live on the same partition....

sniff.... sniff... I am a certified Windows MCSE and I have been Windows free at home for over six months LOL... (that's the sniff part... I can still smell the leftover bytes of Windows in my hard drive) but ...guess what?

with Linux applications I can support any Windows client remotely or locally big_smile

Actually... now I can provide better... more efficient and more cost effective support due to licensing cool

#10 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Aptosid 2011-02 released » 2011-07-16 18:47:02

I have to admit that I have been itching to "pull the trigger" and try  aptosid... there's something there that just intrigues me and I don't know what it is....

I am waiting to buy a really heavy winter jacket before I try it.... just in case I have to join their forums... I have lurked there.... looking..... and I was scared to join and ask a question roll

Note: this is not a flame... just my personal feeling that I got just by hanging out.

Not at home with #! so here's the closest big_smile



#13 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Windows stuck at login screen after #! install » 2011-06-27 23:42:03


Log in to #! and run

sudo update-grub

in a terminal. You said that this happened after the #! install so start there cool

If that doesn't work post the contents of /boot/grub/grub.conf (from #!)
Note: If you run

ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid

the uuid values need to match  what grub.conf shows


#14 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Windows stuck at login screen after #! install » 2011-06-27 12:46:49

1) SYSTEM_RESERVED is flagged by a lot of PC manufacturers as a Windows recovery partition. If Grub is pointing to that
update Grub (from within #! since it looks like it took over your previous setup) and see if it picks up the right partition. If not manually set it in Grub.

#15 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Windows stuck at login screen after #! install » 2011-06-26 20:51:20

I would think that if you get to the Windows log in screen you are past any Grub influence.... Interesting... I have never seen this in 15+ years as a Windows admin....

I'll do some research... hopefully someone else has a good answer in the meantime.

Edit: is this Windows 7 (what edition?)

#16 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Windows stuck at login screen after #! install » 2011-06-26 14:51:31

Two things come to mind:
1) Make sure that CAPS lock is not on
2) If you have numbers in the password, make sure that NUM lock is on if you are using that part of the keyboard.

If not, there are several Linux rescue cd's that can help.... like here: … rescue-cd/

#17 Re: CrunchBang Talk » 2 PC's 1 monitor switch » 2011-06-17 12:54:34

Thanks... I have used them with Windows but never on Linux.... only reason I asked is because on one machine a long time ago, it would not "wake up" the monitor when switching  unless drivers were installed.

Manual partitioning worked for me through GParted....
at least when I remembered to click the "apply" changes button wink

Now.. anyone here that has ROX-Filer installed that can help with the reverse of this?
I would like to be able to open Thunar from ROX for these reasons:

Thanks again.... and sorry for the complicated double solution post tongue

Not even Google seems to know... but if the developer at absolutelinux figured it out so can I (we?) cool

#24 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Thunar help » 2011-06-12 17:19:28
