I don't want to upgrade. I see that version 1:16.04.30 is apparently a...

Re: Error: Dependency is not satisfiable

I'm running 18.3. It's a long term edition (or long term release or extended support version or whateveritiscalled). I get updates sometimes several times a day. I don't think that explains why sed is 8 years old. LTS does not mean that libraries are kept up to date. It means only that the librarie...

Re: Error: Unicon Dependency is not satisfiable

Hi markfilipak, It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run " inxi -Fxzd " and " lsusb " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information. mark@mark-VirtualBox ~ $ inxi -Fxzd System: Host: mark-VirtualB...

Re: Error: Dependency is not satisfiable

Hey, Handsome... Why is Mint so far behind? It isn't, you are. You mustn't be running LM20, which is at version 4.7, or LMDE4, which is also at version 4.7. I'm running 18.3. It's a long term edition (or long term release or extended support version or whateveritiscalled). I get updates sometimes se...

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable

I'm trying to install Unicon. Wow. There's lots of Internet search hits on dependencies but little in the way of actual advice. I double-clicked 'unicon_13.1.2-1_amd64.deb' and got this: "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libssl1.1 (>= 1.1.0)" I ran Synaptic and submitted "libssl" and it reporte...

Re: Search binary via grep? Possible? Alternative?

Tested the complied c code on some video files. Takes about 16 seconds to scan a 1 GB VOB file on a 10-year-old laptop. I think the hits are probably random false positives. But, at least this answers your initial question. To close this thread, please add [SOLVED] to the title on your first post. ...

Re: Request for volunteers to vet sed error case

I'm curious, what does this answer: wc -l "1,073,709,056 bytes" wc -l "1,073,739,776 bytes" From your description, and sed being line based, I suppose the smaller file has more lines? $ wc -l "1,073,709,056 bytes" 4758494 1,073,709,056 bytes $ wc -l "1,073,739,776 bytes" 4647236 1,073,739,776 bytes...

Request for volunteers to vet sed error case

Below is an email I'm preparing to bug-sed@gnu.org. Before I send it, I need someone to vet the error. Preferred would be someone who is not running Mint in a VM. Any volunteers? Of course, your ideas are welcome. Thanks, Mark. ===== Kindly expedite this and contact me for any reason. The file "1,07...

Re: Set /tmp/ to a virtual disk -- How?

... I want to put /tmp/ (and maybe more) in a virtual disk attached to the Linux VM (Windows Host). Why don't you create a second virtual drive in VBox, then mount it with fstab? I have 3 virtual drives attached to the Linux VM already. Why do you think I need another? Even if I create another and ...

Yes I do know that for sure. They can only see information made public on user profiles. I don't mind if someone (some human) can see my profile. I do mind that it can become Big Data. There's a difference, the same difference as between junk postal mail and junk email. I am not happy and will dele...

They are search engine indexers, every forum has them and they aren't anything to be concerned about.
Do you know that for sure? Why would an indexer be accessing member profiles? And how do you know that's what the Google bot is doing?

It appears the bots are allowed to browse (scrape?) member profiles. Is it true?

Re: Set /tmp/ to a virtual disk -- How?

New development: viewtopic.php?p=1903186#p1903186

So, it appears that the size of tmp is not the issue. It appears that the reuse of tmp is the issue.

Re: sed: couldn't re-allocate memory

Oh, this is interesting. This: mark@mark-VirtualBox $ xxd -p -u "1,073,709,056 bytes" | tr -d '\n' | sed -e 's/000001/\x0D\x0A&/g' | grep -E -c '000001B51([0-35-9A-F]|4([0-79A-F]|8[0134-9A-F]))' 6 succeeds (and returns the news that there's 6 matches). So, the problem appears to be with sed, not wit...
