This is the intended purpose of libutempter, but it also requires a level of application support, which tmux has only recently (Feb 2014) gotten in the master branch (which you are using), but might not be ready for use. From the FAQ in the current 1.9a source distribution: * How is tmux different from GNU screen? [...] - screen has support for ...

Using different branches is one approach, and I can suggest edits for @mestia’s answer if it seems appropriate (but read on...). Another approach is to keep different files side-by-side; see Solaar for an example of this. But both of these approaches have a significant shortcoming: they’re unsuitable for packages in Debian or Ubuntu (or probably other ...

You might also check for a spec file (in the tarball). You build an RPM through its spec file. You can use : rpmbuild -bb foo.spec ... to build the binary rpm. You can also use --rebuild option if you have a source rpm (which clearly isn't all that helpful to you but just as a note). As for why it doesn't create an rpm? make is quite a bit older than RPM, ...

Inspired by this thread try the following Pre-condition VM with 4GB Memory + 40GB harddrive Workflow 1. mkdir -pv ~/chromium 2. cd ~/chromium 3. git config --global user.name "You Name" 4. git config --global user.email “youremail@example.com” 5. git config --global core.autocrlf false 6. git config --global core.filemode false 7. git config ...

You have to compile it; as in: gcc -o soma soma.c Then run by: ./soma As of now you are running is as a script with what ever shell you are using. A better compile line would be: gcc -Wall -Wextra -pedantic -o soma soma.c That line will give you a lot of help and hints. And always remember to compile often so you do not have to fix walls of errors ...

If it is not on the install media, then you need to get the deb into /var/cache/apt/archives/. If it is there then the download part of apt-get will be skipped.

Probably you can go with git-buildpackage and keep the different debian directories in different branches.

OpenSSSL on you system has been compiled without ECC support - likely you have an older system where it wasn't included, probably for patent reasons - see ECC patents on Wikipedia. To solve it, you need to update your OpenSSL package to one, that has ECC enabled.

All i did to fix this problem is followed the suggestion by guest additions installer: The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason. The missing package can be probably installed with yum install kernel-uek-devel-2.6.39-400.215.10.el6uek.i686 After that i just retried ...

I think what you really want to do, from your comment "My end goal is to boot a virtual machine with the kernel I build", is Boot a virtual machine (VM) with the current Ubuntu 14.04 ISO Install Ubuntu to a virtual hard drive in the VM Build/install the new kernel in the VM Then if you really wanted, you could create a live iso from the now-updated ...

I feel wrong answering this, but here you go: The gist is that a Makefile is the right tool for this job, and you can get away from shell escaping with here-string syntax. base_script.sh # some script... xargs -0 python -c <<'PYTHON_SCRIPT_asdlfkjhsldjkhf' PYTHON_SCRIPT_asdlfkjhsldjkhf # more script ... Makefile merged_script.sh: base_script.sh ...

I'll assume your question is asking about the nature of the kernel, and why it would need recompiled. The Linux kernel is a whole bunch of source code written in C. There is code available to handle an unbelievably huge number of computer hardware devices and chip sets, and more code that helps it adapt to different platforms other than the standard PC ...

Use command Export LIBDIR=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:$LIBDIR And try again. If it works, put this line in your ~/.bashrc

MPI is a library that you compile with your program just like any other programming library. Unless you specifically make calls into the library to use the features of MPI, nothing special will happen. In addition, MPI programs are launched differently than regular programs. Instead of just running the program normally from the command line ./a.out ...

Is there a reason that you don't use the standard Debian Based package manager for Mint? Compiling your own isn't recommended. This kind of things mostly happens because: You have some missing dependencies. which would show up as errors, during the './configure' phase. You may have old compiler, or a compiler that doesn't meet the requirements for the ...

Yes and no. Yes, you can (usually) take older source code and combine it with newer one. That is what for example CyanogenMod is doing (apart from other things). No, you can't decompile the built image, extract sources, drop those verbatim into newer sources and recompile. It's just not that simple, for couple of reasons, mainly: Decompilation is just ...

Preamble This worked for me. If there is a simpler way, I am sure you will let me know. In theory these steps should work for any linux distribution, you just need to find the original configure options that are used to compile apache for your distro. Perhaps you could add comments to this answer on where you found the options. The important option is: ...
