This tip might not be applicable when executing 'magic'. However, when you want to emerge packages and don't want to/can't keep an internet connection open during compiling, try: emerge --fetchonly packagename This fetches all sources needed for compiling the package. Now you can unplug/log off inte...

Also, windows/dos uses semi-colon as separator, unix/linux uses colon. Windows uses percent signs %VARIABLE% where unix uses single dollar sign $VARIABLE.

'>' means overwrite, '>>' means append. Look in your cron entry (or wherever your logging statement is).

Overwrite:

Code: Select all

xboxtemp > /path/to/logfile
Append:

Code: Select all

xboxtemp >> /path/to/logfile

What kind of router do you have? Is this a gentoox issue affecting many users? If so this should be a candidate for a faq entry. I've had my boxes connected to both my D-Link 704 (direct and through a switch) and directly to my dsl router/modem without any problems. Any specific brand and/or model o...

From the tutorial:
1.0 - Installation

First off, start by burning the Stardust.iso file to a CD. I use NERO or cdrecord to do this. Burn it as a standard ISO disc-at-once with finalisation enabled. This should work, if it doesnt - try track-at-once and/or a lower speed.

I know the df command, but that will only give you the whole device disk space usage. I was trying to find out if there was a way to recurively find out the space used by a directory (and all the files and folders under it). This would help me find out where the most usage is. Thanks for the help. ...
