update-grub suggestions


Hi all,

I have single hdd with debian squeeze and wheezy partitions. Wheezy was 
created with debootstrap. I chroot into it to add broadcom firmware not on 
live CD's. The wheezy /boot has the expected files but, update-grub on 
squeeze only finds the squeeze /boot. GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false had no 
impace. How can I tell (GRUB) 1.98+20100804-14+squeeze1 to look for all 
bootable partitions?

Need... more... DATA!

So a while ago I posted something re: "does anybody know anything about 
VisIt?". I've got it down to subsecond epochs with 5,500 nodes (sparse graph 
database), I can't really optimize further without more data...

Does anyone have a 50,000 node sparse graph database that could use clustering 
(or suggestions on ones that might be useful to cluster)? Reasonable NDAs for 
PII or the like will be entertained.

Yes, it is open source; if you have the silicon, have at thee....

anyone help me enclose the arrows in one small box?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.

I've been at this this before noon; bushed.  it compiles as-is with 
GTK 2.0 but if you use 3.0 you need to comment out the lines around 
+47.

since nobody out there in GTK land can help I  am going back to the wayi
did most of the program.  brrute force.  I figure if I can cram the 
up and down arrows into a small square then I will be able to expand the 
TOPLEVEL qindow into something like 850 by 1500 and put my text.[i].txt
into the large rectange ...  go from there.

thanks in advance, y'all.

gtk3 question.

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 27++ years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

I'm working on a "typing-to-speech" program for the speech impaired.
it works but several months ago I saw how it couple be improved greatly.
the problemm is that I don't know where to post my question to get the
right kind of help.

the program is named "vbc"; it uses C, GTK3+, and gvim.  I use 
"/usr/bin/aplay" for the voice.  anybody on this list know where I can
ask for help?  I'm at roughtly version 0.1a right now and need help with
all the gvim windows if there are too many instances of gvim cluttering 
the screen.

[[FWIW, I do use vbc because my speech is impaired and family or friends
can't understand what I'm saying.  this is a "zeus-send" when I'm really
burned out!!]]

thanks in advance for any suggestions.

google PDF file won't write to "plain-text"...

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 27++ years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	folks,

	it never occurred me to *ask* anybody about "real PDF" (that I
	can translate into standard text {like ASCII} and also view
	online with an open-source pdf viewer), and what I have come 
	to think of as bastardized-PDF that while I can view online,
	I can't convert to ordinary text.  I don't care about font
	types or bold or italic.  I have found at least one Google 
	PDF file that I can read with xpdf, okular, and other pDF 
	viewers, but won't port from pdf to ASCII, or anything close
	to "Txt."

	anybody know what's going on?  are there work-arounds?

	thanks in advance.
