  • Extracting .gz files and placing the output in another directory in one command line is convenient thing. I just followed some how-to to install Nagios on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx but they give the method to install from archives. I wished to install from the repository. If you do so some files are missing. I've not tested yet but this is an example command line I did to extract sudo sh -c 'gunzip -c /usr/share/doc/nagios3-common/examples/template-object/templates.cfg.gz > /etc/nagios3/objects/templates.cfg' We need privilege to write the destination file.

When running a long `diff -r` over folders, this simulates a "verbose" mode where you can see where diff is in the tree. Replace $file with the first part of the path being compared.

pipe commands from a textfile to a telnet-server with netcat
sends commands specified in $commandfile to the telnet-server specified by $telnetserver. to have newlines in $commandfile interpreted as ENTER, save the file in CR+LF (aka "Windows-Textfile") format. if you want to save the output in a separate file, use: $nc $telnetserver 23 < $commandfile > $resultfile

swap the java version being used
You have openjdk and sun java installed. Many of your java plugins will not work properly. Something called IcedTea (the java web plugin) keeps crashing. Run this and select sun java to use sun java.
