propos de Debian

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system that we have created is called Debian. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. At the core of an operating system is the kernel. The kernel is the most fundamental program on the computer and does all the basic housekeeping and lets you start other programs. Debian systems currently use the Linux kernel or the FreeBSD kernel. However, work is in progress to provide Debian for other kernels, primarily for the Hurd.

A large part of the basic tools that fill out the operating system come from the GNU project; hence the names: GNU/Linux, GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU/Hurd. Adding REAL Firefox to Debian Lenny. Dec 26, 2008 I realize it’s a touchy subject, but some of us prefer unmodified Firefox — including the standard Firefox icon — to Debian’s Iceweasel alternative.

Adding REAL Firefox to Debian Lenny

Here’s a three-step way to substitute Firefox for Iceweasel on a fresh Lenny install. This procedure assumes you’ve downloaded and installed the latest Debian Lenny (aka “testing,” currently) GNU/Linux distribution, along with its standard GNOME desktop environment. Using Iceweasel for the last time, download Firefox to your home directory. Let’s assume the name of the file you downloaded is “firefox-3.0.5.tar.bz2″ (the current version as of this writing).

Sort Files Like A Master. If you do your development work in Linux, there are certain commands that you owe it to yourself to master fully.

Sort Files Like A Master

There are a number of these with the main ones being grep, find and sort. Just about everyone has at least a passing familiarity with these commands, but with most people the knowledge is superficial, they don't even realise how powerful those commands can be. So, if you really put in the effort to master them, not only will you make your own life much easier, but you will also be able to impress all you friends with your elite Linux skills when you pair with them :).

I will cover grep and find (as well as other valuable commands) in subsequent posts – here we will concentrate on sort. Note: I am using bash, so your mileage might vary if you're using a different shell. Sorting is a fundamental task when it comes to programming, if you have a decent knowledge of various sorting algorithms, their advantages and disadvantages, you will be a better software developer for it.
