Split Archive tar.gz?

02 January 2009 - 05:30 PM

Is it possible to generate a split type archive using tar? Similar to what RAR does:


When unrarring file1.rar it automatically collects r01, r02, etc.

Read user input with bash?

02 January 2009 - 05:25 PM

I've seen some installation scripts and other such scripts ask for user input (IE: Do you wish to continue? ) but I can't find an example when I now need it. How can I read user input to a variable in bash?

'Do you wish to continue?'

A yes would continue, no would exit. Anyone?

DPI when docked

01 August 2008 - 09:49 AM

When my computer is docked (which also means dual screen) it seems like my font DPI is dcreased. It looks fine when I undock and remove the dual screen though. Anyone else having this same problem?

I'm running KDE 3.5.

Failed Dependencies

16 June 2008 - 11:16 AM

I'm trying to install rtorrent but I get Failed Dependencies error.

libsigc-2.0.so.0 is needed by rtorrent-0.8.0-1.el5.rf.i386
        libtorrent.so.11 is needed by rtorrent-0.8.0-1.el5.rf.i386

I tried searching for libsigc but can't find it. How do I know what RPM package it is in? Where can I find an RPM for el5?
