comment Creating charts from the data extracted from csv file and mail the chart as content in the mail body
@KARTHIKAS It's still not particularly clear what you want; "make a chart" is a very broad question. Can you give an example of the data you have and what you want the chart to look like?

comment How do I know which version of Debian I'm running?
@IQAndreas I don't use Debian, but based on wiki.debian.org/DebianSqueeze and wiki.debian.org/DebianWheezy it sure seems like they're in sync. I reopened it since your question is maybe slightly different, but the only different part is "which Debian version is Squeeze and which is Wheezy", which seems pretty easy to resolve unless I'm misunderstanding something

comment How can I consistently tell OpenSUSE to refresh the clock / current time?
How is syncing the time distro-specific? It has nothing to do with your distro

comment Difference Between cp -r and cp -R (copy command)
I don't see this on CentOS 5; -r and -R both copy hidden directories

comment Saving output of mplayer
@nwildner It sure seems to. mplayer and mencoder are part of the same toolkit, and the question even says "Any alternative command-line solution is welcome too, I am not tied to mplayer."

comment lsof: no pwd entry for UID
@Tom That's not what I get on Linux; I don't have a Solaris box to test on. Can you just ps aux and grep that?

comment How to create a script that can't be easily exited
Do you want to prevent interrupts from killing a script, or do you want to prevent users from canceling the update? The latter is more general and has simpler solutions, so you're going to end up getting answers for that even if you asked for the former

comment Passing named arguments to shell scripts
This doesn't work with the syntax the OP specified; they want -a 1 -b mitsos -c karamitsos

comment Redirecting stdout to a file you don't have write permission on
@k961 I used chown to change the owner; it was just an example

comment Why is this Python package trying to use a non-existent gcc?
@DevNull How is this a question? It seems like it would work fine, albeit a bit hacky

comment “Script” command for two terminals
It sounds to me like the OP is talking about how to use the script command, but it's unclear

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
Well, I'm not sure what the problem is, but I reopened the question. Might want to add an error message or something

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
Are you just running bacc? Don't do ./bacc, that's telling it to look for bacc in the current directory. If you run bacc by itself it will search your path in order

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
You put them on your path, that's how it works. Run which java in your terminal and you'll get the absolute path. Then run echo $PATH and you'll see a colon-delimited set of paths, which will include the directory java is in. Any executable in any of those directories will be runnable just using its name

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
This seems like a duplicate to me; maybe I don't understand. If you add the program folder to your path, you can run bacc and bainterp without needing to provide the full path or switching to the directory to run them as relative paths

comment Fedora vs. Ubuntu installation
@ThomasStreiff But we're not talking about installing packages; the question is about installing the distro -- it wants to know why installing Ubuntu is harder than installing Fedora. Not installing packages under those distros

comment Fedora vs. Ubuntu installation
I can't figure out what the package format has to do with Fedora's ease of distro installation
