comment How do I access my Windows administrative share from Linux?
@patryk.beza Windows 10 support might just not be implemented in this version of SAMBA yet. On your windows machine, you need advanced sharing turned on, firewall turned off, windows professional edition, not home edition. See this: superuser.com/questions/328461/…

comment How do I access my Windows administrative share from Linux?
@patryk.beza I don't have many ideas. Is your windows share located on a machine, running some new version of windows, e.g. windows2008? Samba has poor support for them. Is your share's name in english, not some national language? Are permissions on the windows side ok? Also just try googling mount error(13) - there's a lot of info on forums.

@patryk.beza Did you try to prepend sudo? I guess, mounting might require it.

comment What are the responsibilities of each Pseudo-Terminal (PTY) component (software, master side, slave side)?
@emmasculateur I also stumbled upon a different case from yours: if your process used to have terminal, but that terminal was closed, process would receive SIGHUP from kernel upon read/write attempt to stdout/stdin. This often kills the jobs, started via ssh without nohup or screen/tmux.

@emmasculateur hm, it's a good question, makes sense, I just didn't think of it earlier. I guess that's the way, you start your process as a daemon on remote machine, without associated terminal. My guess is that its standard input/output/error just go to /dev/null like for a normal daemon, but not sure. See also: serverfault.com/questions/593399/…

@emmasculateur glad it helped you. Sorry, I can't understand what you mean by "when no pty is instantiated". Can you give an example of when pty is not instantiated?

comment Resizing Xterm window kills Django running in it
It could be helpful, if you provided information about your kernel version (is it preemptive?), python version and django version. It also might be related to your terminal, cause reads/writes to terminal are blocking and if they last too long for some reason, the signals coming in the meantime of terminal i/o system call can be discarded with this error as described here: win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/lk/lk-4.html

comment Resizing Xterm window kills Django running in it
Never experienced that myself. Does it happen in single-threaded mode (use --nothreading, while starting python manage.py runserver)? Cause python has bugs with multithreading not handling signals, e.g. SIGINT as KeyboardInterrupt exception appropriately: stackoverflow.com/questions/1408356/…. May be there's a similar bug with SIGWINCH, sent upon terminal resize?

comment Making a usb wifi device work an a PowerPC Debian computer (iBook G4)
Shaun, I've tried like 3 or 4 wireless USB adapters for my Debian 7 and they either don't work at all or glitch badly. IIRC the only readily available modern chipset for USB wifi devices among officially supported adapters on linux is Atheros9170 and even it doesn't work for me due to wpa-supplicant failures. See the list of Ath9k devices here: wiki.debian.org/carl9170. In general, situation with Wifi USB support on Linux is grim. I believe, we need a PCI card.
