Summary

In one life, I am Robert Munteanu, software engineer for a respectable software company. I write clean Java code, I maintain application builds ... help my colleagues discover bugs with automated analysis tools. The other life is lived in open source, where I go by the developer alias "Rombert" and try go get my code in virtually every open source software I have an use for.

@Artefacto - I've updated the question with that info, basically creates a file on disk and the intermediate directories ( elided from question, for brevity )

comment Finding a user's home from bash
I was thinking on whether it requires fingerd or something similar. However, running it through strace shows that it does not need that.

Aha, this does work! Does the finger command require extra privileges or setup to run locally? I recall that it does to run it remotely

comment Writing an upstart file which allows the user to input username and password
@HBruijn - that's a valid point. However, consider an Apache instance which has a password-protected SSL cerfificate. That should be started with an upstart script - it's a system service - and it should allow the user to input the password. I'm looking for the same thing.

comment What are the ramifications of setting tcp_tw_recycle/reuse to 1?
The obvious question is, what do you expect to gain from this change?

comment Change all commit authors in subversion
@LazyBadger : can you post an answer of that? My repository is pretty small - around 11k revisions, but I'd appreciate a faster conversion.

comment Change all commit authors in subversion
OK, so svn info gives me the last revision. And I can use svn propget ... to get the author for each revision. That's enough to work on, thanks.

comment Change all commit authors in subversion
Just a couple of questions: 1. How can I find out the current maximum revision in a script? 2. How can I extract the current author for a revision?

comment Can I try Amazon EC2 for free?
I don't think the price range is what the submitter is asking for - Skytap has a simple, low cost subscription model starting at $500/month .

Tell that to my system administrator team. Unix users are created by initials. Guess what my user is :-)

@Ignacio: OK , thanks for clarifying.

comment Failed depencies: libmysqlclient.so.16 is needed
@Ignacio: But doesn't that depend on the local setup of the packager? If it finds libmysqlclient.so.16 , it has no way of knowing whether a plain libmysqlclient.so will work or not.

comment Failed depencies: libmysqlclient.so.16 is needed
@Ignacio : In my experience it depends on the quality of the package. It might be that it simply describes what the packager has been able to test on. Not all packages are RHEL-quality.
