Smolt in Mandriva  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 15 2009 @ 01:13 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxSome time ago, I introduced a package for Smolt in Mandriva Cooker. Smolt is a tool developed for Fedora which collects information about all your hardware and submits it to a central database. On the smolts.org website, people can view all hardware entries and indicate which one is working OK for them. The database is also coupled with a wiki, where extra instructions can be written to get the hardware working. Smolt is used by default already for some time in Fedora and also in OpenSUSE.

Using Named Pipes (FIFOs) with Bash  View Printable Version 
Saturday, March 28 2009 @ 10:57 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoWhy might you want to use a named pipe in a shell script? One situation might be when you've got a backup script that runs via cron, and after it's finished, you want to shut down your system. If you do the shutdown from the backup script, cron never sees the backup script finish, so it never sends out the e-mail containing the output from the backup job. You could do the shutdown via another cron job after the backup is "supposed" to finish, but then you run the risk of shutting down too early every now and then, or you have to make the delay much larger than it needs to be most of the time.
