Worked in the tech field for over 15 years. Started out learning basic on an Apple IIe then on a TRS-80. Been interested in computer hardware and software my entire life. Consider myself lucky that my hobby as a kid/adult is what I get to do everyday earning a living.

comment notify-send not working under ssh
@aikeru - much of what I've found shows that setting $DISPLAY=:0 would work, but this does not work for me as well. I'm on Fedora 20 using Cinnamon as my desktop. Using strace to debug this shows that there is a connection that doesn't get done when going through SSH, still investigating what is blocking this.

comment notify-send not working under ssh
@aikeru - notify-send can send messages to the listening notifier daemon. When you login via SSH this environment does not have the info necessary to communicate w/ this notifier, is the underlying issue.

comment /usr/sbin/sendmail: Permission denied
@Atul - yeah this isn't pertaining to the sendmail issue you've been debugging. You'd need to retrigger the sendmail issue to get it to show up in the latest logs.

comment xpra attach failure
Your particular msg. showed up in this issue: xpra.org/trac/ticket/64. Not sure if it's related but you might want to take a look. I found very little else beyond this, so you're going to have to look through xpra's logs and possibly turn up the verbosity/debug levels to get more info to go on.

comment AIX equivalent of Solaris' iostat -E
@fedorqui - yes yes it depends, that's why I said it's up to the OP. Didn't want to get into a splitting hairs, was merely showing "one way" to "break it down" 8-). This Q could surely be rephrased and asked on both sites IMO, BTW.

comment AIX equivalent of Solaris' iostat -E
@fedorqui - it's difficult to say which site has more ppl w/ that skill. This site has ~188 Q's tagged as AIX while SF has only ~44.

comment AIX equivalent of Solaris' iostat -E
This Q is perfectly on-topic for this site. You could've asked it there as well. Many of the SE sites overlap, it's the OP's prerogative where to ask a Q when it does.

comment How to you create directories and set permission?
Searching this SE site will yield many answers that show what you seek. This shows some of what you ask: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/2804/…;. The commands you're looking for are mkdir to create a directory and chmod to set the permissions. Take a look at the man pages, man chmod or man mkdir as well as searching for their use through this SE site. If you have a specific question in their use after reviewing this material then ask it after, but asking homework Q's in this manner w/o any effort is frowned upon.
