  1. In Topic: Raspbian on qemu - can get login prompt, but can't login

    Note: the instructions cited claim that I should be booting into a root shell - this does not happen.

    Indeed. That is what the init=/bin/bash part of the kernel parameters is supposed to do for you.

    Can you post the command(s) you are using to start it, please?
  2. In Topic: url.getContentType() file types like wget.

    Posted 10 Jul 2014

    You could always use curl -I to get header info, and check the Content-Type field. Then, if the Content-Type field matches what you want, add that file to a list. After it's done, pass the list to wget one by one and pull them all down.
  3. In Topic: Telnet - Terminal and Function Keys (F3)

    Posted 10 Jul 2014

    Have you tried using showkey with the --scancodes and --keycodes arguments, independently? Then you can use the scancodes and keycodes obtained in this manner, and apply it to the Mint session using setkeycodes.
  4. In Topic: Tunneling rDesktop through ssh. I Get an error when connecting.

    Posted 10 Jul 2014

    Well, part of the problem is that your command is wrong. Assuming you're trying to have the Fedora box grab onto the RDP port from the Windows box, you'd do:

    ssh -L 1024:windows:3389 [email protected]

    The error message almost implies sshd either isn't running or is going over on sessions.

    Verify the sshd service is running, and check /etc/sshd_config on your Cygwin install to see if MaxSessions is set to something other than 0 (and that you're not exceeding that count).
  5. In Topic: File not found error in Ubuntu, even though files are there

    Posted 10 Jul 2014

    You're missing a space between 'sudo' and './uppercase'. As such, it's trying to run 'sudo./uppercase', which does not exist.

    do you know how to answer this one?I'm only a beginner in java
    create a program which stores a multiplication table on an array with a user defined dimension then display the contents of the array in vertical mirror effect using the console for output in java.

    Oh, wow, I hadn't even noticed. Thank you!
    I can't remember for the life of me where the PSD for the DIC userbars is (like the one I have on my signature image). You wouldn't happen to know if that's still around, would you?
