Re: FreeBSD chess engines

FreeBSD can run Linux binaries:

I never tested, but I guess chess engines would run without problems.

Re: Debian 7

When I installed Linux mint, I choose cinnamon blindly. But I wondered about MATE. Do you have an opinion about the comparison? Miguel Cinnamon was a bit unstable on an old laptop, but it is stable on a recent (i5 laptop from 2012) model. I use Mate on this old laptop, and it is rock-solid stable. ...

The 3.2 kernel is new only in Debian years, it is (if I am not mistaken) from January 2012. Current kernel is 3.8 or 3.9. Anyway, Debian aims to be stable, not bleeding edge.

Re: Debian 7

I haven't looked at Debian 7, but does it have the option to run MATE? I've been using that since I switched to Linux Mint 13 and have been very happy. It' similar to Gnome 2.x except improved and it's just been getting better with the last few releases. Mate is not on Debian repos yet, but their d...

Re: looking for a tool to conver line endings

Furthermore, also combining "<whitespace><whitespace>*<CR><LF>" in one pattern will not always succeed since line endings could be inconsistent within one file. Indeed, and it is the reason I use one replace for LF and another for CR, as I've came across (more created myself, with OS jumping) files...

Re: looking for a tool to conver line endings

I am not fluent on perl one-liners, but now I am jealous of the previous posts, so here is a (untested) script to convert to / from any OS specific format: #!/usr/bin/perl open (fh_in, "<", $ARGV[0]) or die "could not open file $!"; open (fh_out, ">", $ARGV[1]) or die "could not open file $!...

Re: looking for a tool to conver line endings

To convert from dos to unix and vice-versa (and I think the package also includes the Mac text files, which if I am not mistaken is CR), there is dos2unix:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/dos2unix/

To trim space you could use a perl scrit - to do the format conversion as well, in fact.

Re: The wiki article

Suggestions for a different distribution for me to try? I'm not looking to be a linux guru or make problems for myself, but I just want the OS to get out of the way and stop trying to be the killer application. 1. easy to use and maintaining a "traditional" desktop experience (and they started a co...

Re: Cheap Android tablet

thanks for the replies. The nook seems a good one, particularly with the possibility of dual boot - original OS and Android, as I also want a ebook reader.
