I make several backup with bzip2, it seems that he has the better compression.
I do my backup like this for several folders.
tar cvf - /home/data/ | bzip2 -9 > /backup/data.tar.bz2
When i test the archive with bzip2 -t archive.tar.bz2, everything is
correct when the archive is under 1 Go. But i get CRC error when it's
Has anyone experience this ?
I've been doing installation tests on a laptop with onboard ATI
Technologies Inc ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 (PCIE) video. I have found
that when I install the latest driver
(ati-driver-installer-8.20.8-i386.run) the graphics acceleration feature
does not take and "fglrxinfo" defaults back to the Mesa drivers *except*
when I do an "everything" install on FC4. When I install "everything" it
works and I get the proper message
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON XPRESS 200M Series SW TCL Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3.5519 (X4.3.0-8.20.8)
when I do the "fglrxinfo" command. This happens even if I install kernel-devel and gcc.
I'm thinking there must be some program(s) that I get with the "everything" install that makes it possible to install the ATI driver. If anyone knows what it is please let me know so I can just install that program rather than the "everything" install.
Been having problems with java. Followed info on the Fedora site to
make my own java-1.5.0.05 rpms with yum and then use the command to
install them on my test FC4. The command was
from within /home/test/rpmbuild/RPMS
sudo yum localinstall *.rpm
The command executed okay and properly filled all dependencies. Java
--version reports the proper version. So far okay. Got Tomcat4
installed as required by the program I am testing. It will not work
with > 1.4.2 java.
So I have removed Tomcat with yum. Now how do I remove the list of
java-1.5.0.05 rpms with yum. I have tried a variety of command forms
without luck. Or do I have to try to remove them 1 by 1 with rpm -e?
Tried this too, however, and rpm reports a slew of dependencies that may
take a lifetime (exagggeration somewhat!) to figure out.
help appreciated. I have tried to read the yum docs without much
Thanks and a Happy New Year!
