Show line numbers in vim?

23 March 2009 - 06:26 AM

On some boxes I have line numbers in the bottom status bar area and some I don't. I like them and would like to show them in all boxes. How do I turn them on/off?

Resource temporarily unavailable

12 January 2009 - 10:54 AM

When I try to run crontab -e as a user I get this error:

jailshell: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

Running as root works fine though. Any ideas what is causing this? What is a "fork"?

X Windows/GUI Apps through SSH

02 January 2009 - 05:53 PM

I learned this and thought I would share. First check the /etc/ssh/ssh_config on the server you want to use X Applications/GUI - Look for this line:

# ForwardX11 no 

Uncomment and set to yes

ForwardX11 yes

Disconnected from SSH. Now when you want to connect via SSH and be able to run X application connect using this line:

ssh -X username@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Once you are connected you should be able to run any X application and it will present the GUI locally.

What is KDE/Gnome?

They are not a window manager and are referred to as a "Desktop". Along with CDE and XFCE. I thought that all of these things ran on top of X Windows and were called managers. If they are not a manager then what is a Desktop exactly?

Stocks on Linux

02 January 2009 - 05:39 PM

I have been getting into stock market trading lately using ShareBuilder but I couldn't find any good tools to use for Linux. Anyone know of anyone or use one that has real time stocks? I would like charts, gain/loss tracking, etc.

I'd prefer one in Linux but will use Wine to emulate if needed. :(
