To all,

I have sent this letter to the Straits Times forum
in protest of the ill treatment by Microsoft during
his protest. I have understood the case better from
talking to him and am very unhappy with the way Microsoft
had treated my friend.

I send this in personal capacity. No relation must be
made to my employer.

Thanks and Best Regards.

Hi,
Why not we plan for a debate on "Linux in schools " ?
We can invite VIP's and provide media coverage.
Arkins seems to be nice venue for this event.
We can ask someone interested to sponsor advertisements in print media.

Changing the HDDs

HI all,

1. I have primary master and a secondary master hard disks and two operating systems
using LILO. Linux is installed in the second disk. I want to remove the current
primary from the box and make the secondary as primary.

Will the following ensure that the new configuration will hve the MBR in the right place and assure me a clean
booting into Linux ?

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdc bs=512 count=1

2. If I had been using GRUB instead of LILO , will this work. I have not been able to 
lay my hands on any paper describing how GRUB works.

Thanks 

Sankar

Re: Changing the HDDs

Hi,

I would suggest that you make a boot disk / use the cdrom and boot after
you remove the primary and put the secondary.

The steps :

1) Change the hardware
2) Use rescue mode from CD or use boot disk and at the boot prompt use 
linux boot=/dev/hd(a)(?)

3) Change the lilo to that apt hd(?)
4) run lilo...

That should do the job.

writing the first 512 bytes might not help as pointers will be pointing
to the older hd(b) partitions.. Some body on the list please
verify ..

Midhun.

A small kernel booting doubt

I am trying to boot a new kernel that i compiled
through a floppy disk.
Lilo is not installed in the MBR i use the floopy to boot.
mkbootdisk writes the default kernel not the one i have compiled.

what is the easiest method to boot from a new kernel without using the
HDD and setting
the root to /dev/hda6 ie root of my installation.

An pointers !!!

TIA
raghu

PATCHING A KERNEL

Hi all,

I hve the following doubts :

1. Is all the identically numbered kernels same, irrespective of the sourc.

i.e. If I have a kernel 2.4.xx-xx from Redhat , will that be the same of
Suse's/Mankarake's/Debian's 2.4.xx-xx.

2. My kernel is 2.4.7-10 (that came with RedHat 7.2. CDs). I have downloaded
a file by the name patch-2.4.13.gz. When I apply this patch will all
the differentials (i.e. 2.4.13 - 2.4.7 ) be updated to my kernel and my new kernel
will be named 2.4.13 ?

3. Is there is any HOWTO for PATCHING - generally and PATCHING KERNEL
specifically.

Thanks

Sankar

sound

Hi All,

I would like to know whether there is any command in shell script
to play a sound giving the frequency and time period. In C,
there is some thing like sound(frequency, time). But I don't know 
whether this would work in Unix C. Please advice me.

Luv,
Ramesh

Even if we do nothing, ilugc would not be the same; change is inevitable.
For example, there was a time when ilugc and IIT were synonymous and
nobody thought of meeting more than once a month.
The issue is do we want this particular change? What are the pluses and
what arethe minuses? How do we handle them?

Even the very laid back and co-operative folks at Secure Net SOlutions
had a lot of difficulty in giving money to a non-existent organization!.
Please remember we dont have a letter head, address, office bearers ....
all the trappings of a formal org.

So who is being paid? who will account? .....

It is possible to be formal without funds but funds without being formal may
be
next to impossible.
